Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Bordeaux Mountain - Almost Heaven

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

This luxurious, newly built home offers a respite on Bordeaux Mountain. This two-level house has a spectacular, panoramic view of surrounding Coral Bay and the neighboring Tortola and Drake's Passage.

This spacious house was finished with West Indian stonework both inside and out. It has three bedrooms--including two queen size bedrooms and also one master bedroom with a king-size bed--and three full bathrooms. The two bedrooms open, via sliding doors, onto the completely screened in porches.

The sleek kitchen is fully functional with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and cherry wood cabinets. All the conveniences of home are here, such as a Keurig (coffee maker), blender, toaster - everything you need to relax and enjoy your home away from home.

Relax on upscale Caribbean furniture in the great room, surf the web on the WiFi, or watch a movie on the 42' inch television. Better yet, enjoy Bordeaux Mountain's cool summer breezes by stepping into the sun deck, which is fully furnished with chaises, chairs, and a table for outdoor dining or simply enjoying the view. The 45 foot lap pool and a six person jaccuzi make you feel you are almost in heaven.

Recommendations: This is on Bordeaux Mountain and all guests should have 4 wheel drive.

Why Daniel chose Bordeaux Mountain

We had this villa built because we cannot imagine a better place to vacation than St. John. Our 'Almost Heaven' has a spectacular, panoramic view of surrounding Coral Bay and the neighboring Tortola and Drake's Passage.

  • 5 of 5

Our 7 night stay was truly....Almost Heaven! We enjoyed every minute. The view of Coral Bay from the villa's screened in balcony was so beautiful to wake up to each morning and the best way to relax at the end of each evening. Very spacious, private, clean and well designed and decorated. We felt like it truly was our home away from home. Thank you for sharing your beautiful villa for all to experience!

Other notes:

Our son stayed in Cruz Bay the same week. We traveled from Coral Bay to Cruz Bay several times to get together. Coral Bay is much more relaxing, quiet, peaceful and away from the touristy area. While we enjoyed both places. Coral Bay by far won our hearts as the place to come back to.

Top beaches: Maho; about a 15 minute drive. Salt Pond; about a 10 minute drive

Top restaurant: Aqua Bistro;

Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th visit to St. John and Almost Heaven is by far the most beautiful villa we have ever stayed in.....it is truly AMAZING! When we walked into this lovely home, we immediately knew it was built with fine craftsmanship & expertise. We admired all the beautiful details of the villa such as the stone walls adorned with beautiful sea shells, the unique tile work throughout, the open ceilings, the incredible screened-in porches with magnificent views of coral bay....really enjoyed those breath taking views while having meals on the large & spacious porch. The villa also has a large, beautiful pool & hot tub & 2 outdoor showers. It has a quality grill that we often used to grill hamburgers, chicken and brats for dinner. I appreciated that the stairs leading down to the lover level were built inside (instead of outside) the house (we have kids). The kitchen is well equipped with dishes, silverware, pot/pans, glasses (plastic & glass), cooking utensils, etc. There is a Keurig coffee maker as well as a regular brew coffee maker (great for coffee from St. John Spice located right by the ferry dock on Cruz Bay). There is also a blender we used to make our lime coladas! The appliances all looked new and worked well (over/stove, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, washer/dryer). Beds are very comfortable (extra sheets, blankets and pillows in all the rooms) and lots of cabinet/drawer space for clothing. All of the bedrooms have sliding doors that go out to the beautiful porches as well as air conditioning, ceiling fans and safes. There are plenty of towels (kitchen, bath and beach) available as well as coolers and beach chairs. The villa was very clean and had extra soap and toilet paper. The driveway to the villa is a bit steep and intimidating at first (rent a four wheel drive vehicle) however, after driving up and down a couple of times, it was not a bother. When we first arrived at the Villa, Sylvester the property manager gave us the keys and showed us around. He was very kind and helpful and answered all our questions. Deirdre, the person we worked with prior to our stay was also very nice and great to work with!! Staying here really made our vacation special. After a day at the beach, we looked forward to returning to the villa to relax and take in the view. A special thank you to Sylvester and the Clancy family for making our stay on St. John so fabulous! We'll be back!!

Unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

Not much to add from the other reviews other than it's hard to think of a way to improve on this villa. The view is jaw-dropping - high enough to see amazing sunrises over St John east end and Norman Island, close enough to Coral Harbor to see Biff or Jimmy getting ready to sail. And the villa faces directly down the Sir Francis Drake Channel, with Tortola to the left, and Norman, Peter and cays to the right, Virgin Gorda on the horizon. The villa is very comfortable, three comfortable air-conditioned bedrooms, one up and two down, each with private bath, plus fantastic great room, gourmet well-appointed kitchen and deluxe gas grill outside.

The two full-length-of-the-house porches are beautifully furnished and each is fully screened in case of bugs, but at 600 feet elevation with constant breeze, there aren't many bugs. We loved the pool deck complete with outdoor shower, 6-person soaking spa and what must be the largest pool on the island.

You must have 4-wheel drive and the drive up and down the hill is more exciting than an amusement park ride, but that can be said of most villas on the island. The best part about this perfect villa is that it's on St. John, and I can't imagine a more beautiful tropical island anyplace - we visited and snorkeled 13 separate beaches in 6 days - favorites were Salt Pond, Little Lameshur and Groutpan. We loved the relaxed, laid-back style in Coral Bay, getting to know some of the "colorful" local folks - we much preferred this side to the more uppity Cruz Bay side.

Fantastic villa and unforgettable stay at Almost Heaven in America's Paradise.

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation villa! My husband and I stayed here with our Son and his family, with a 2yr old and a 4yr old. It was a perfect place. The screened in porch was where we lived. The safety features are perfect if you have little ones. The house was so well stocked, that I brought home most of the supplies that I had taken down with me. Just arrive on the Island, rent your jeep, buy groceries and you are set for your stay. We went to a different beach everyday, but couldn't wait to get back to the house in the afternoon to spend the rest of our day.

I have stayed in 7 different villas on St John, and this one is by far the very best. I wouldn't even research other homes, because this one is perfect!
