On The Market: Enjoy Breath-taking Water Views of Hurricane Hole at Heaven’s Gate


Heaven’s Gate overlooks protected Hurricane Hole in the V.I. National Park.

ESTATE ZOOTENVAAL — Sipping a refreshing cocktail on the expansive deck while soaking up the cooling trade winds and watching the stars twinkle to life in the tropical evening sky and you’ll know exactly why this home is called Heaven’s Gate.
Perched on a hillside overlooking the pristine waters of Hurricane Hole, the four bedroom, four and a half bathroom Estate Zootenvaal villa Heaven’s Gate is for sale for $5.75 million, explained Sandra Mohler of Holiday Homes of St. John.

“Heaven’s Gate is located at the top of a hill overlooking the Hurricane Hole National Monument, with unspoiled natural beauty to compliment the lush tropical gardens surrounding this well-built, luxurious four bedroom villa,” said Mohler.

While you will certainly feel worlds away from it all, the laid-back hamlet of Coral Bay is only a few minutes away. You won’t have to go far from Heaven’s Gate to find great spot for snorkeling and sunning. The quiet beaches of the island’s ruggedly beautiful East End are right nearby.

But you might find it difficult to leave your own private Shangri-la at Heaven’s Gate.

Nestled on the end of a road, the home affords peaceful privacy, Mohler explained.

“The end of the road privacy insures relaxing pool side days enjoying the vistas of the Caribbean Sea and multiple islands beyond,” said the Holiday Homes of St. John sales agent.

The large lot size, a total 1.036-acre parcel, features lush tropical landscaping, Mohler added.

“The gardens are spectacular with multiple orchids and exotic tropical flora,” she said.

Inside, find an open plan, gourmet kitchen with custom hardwood cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. The spacious great room with a Caribbean style exposed beam ceiling, offers plenty of space curl up with a book. You’ll never tire of entertaining friends with dinner parties at the indoor dining area or outside overlooking those stunning water views. 
The four spacious bedrooms all boast en suite bathrooms and private outdoor seating areas, explained Mohler.

“The four large en suite bedrooms opening to private lanais give the guests their own place to relax and enjoy the fantastic views,” she said.

A unique feature at Heaven’s Gate is the stone windmill replica on the property which houses the ancillary generator, explained Mohler.

“The stone windmill replica in the yard serves as the sound enclosure for an auxiliary generator, and a tower for enjoying a cocktail and the views,” said the Holiday Homes of St. John sales agent.

The home is also popular on the short term rental market, Mohler added.

“This popular short term rental generates a good income to make owning a Caribbean vacation home rewarding on many levels,” she said.
