On The Market: Enjoy Stunning Sunsets in Privacy from Villa Belvedere



Views from the deck and pool at Villa Belvedere go on and on, above. The great room includes native stone accents and high ceilings, below. 

Few moments can top watching the Caribbean sun melt into the horizon while dangling your toes in a cool, crisp pool and sipping a refreshing sundowner — except maybe if those moments occurred each afternoon.

With expansive, 180-degree views to Little St. James and St. Thomas, Villa Belvedere is the perfect place to enjoy sunsets all year round. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom villa is for sale for $2.3 million on the St. John MLS.

The home was originally constructed in the 1980s, but recently underwent extensive renovations and today boasts an inviting pool and hot tub, explained Holiday Homes broker/owner Christie O’Neil.

“The original — all masonry — home was mostly built in the 1980s, but has been extensively redone and expanded recently to almost twice the size,” said O’Neil. “The villa has a super waterfront pool plus spa and two separate master suites.”

Villa Belvedere’s location, perched 100 feet above the Caribbean Sea, just past Great Cruz Bay on Maria Bluff, means you can enjoying those sunsets, as well as the pool and hot tub, in complete privacy.

“The totally private location appeals to all and encourages outdoor living,” said O’Neil. “The unobstructed waterfront views to St. Thomas are amazingly spectacular.”

The villa boasts two full master suites, each will amazing views.

High ceilings, native stone accents, pocket doors and oversized windows bring the outdoors inside and afford sweeping views from most rooms. A covered verandah just off the main living area allows for serious relaxation and outdoor dining in the cool shade.

In addition to sun lovers, Villa Belvedere is also the perfect home for boating enthusiasts. The villa comes with private HOA dinghy access in nearby Great Cruz Bay, explained O’Neil.

“The HOA dinghy dock access to Great Cruz Bay is a huge boon for boaters,” she said. “As boats become more plentiful in the harbor, parking and boat access is becoming scarce and therefore more valuable.”

The villa’s well-established Great Cruz Bay neighborhood, a short drive to the dining and nightlife of Cruz Bay and the nearby beaches of North Shore Road, is an ideal location for either a rental property or primary residence, O’Neil explained.

“This home does well on rental or works very well as a primary residence,” said the Holiday Homes broker/owner. “My favorite thing about Great Cruz Bay is the neighborhood. It’s a great place to walk in the morning and you always see others doing the same thing.”

“Also it’s conveniently close to town, stores and more,” said O’Neil. “Great Cruz Bay has a variety of very pretty water views and good breezes. Plus it’s already been mostly built out, so there will not be as much construction noise as time goes on as one would experience in newer subdivisions just beginning to be developed.”
