About Mike Mullen
This is my third build. The last finished in 2009 - Sopra Mare at VRBO #251854 has proven so popular that I undertook another on the same 1.4 acre lot finished December 2013. It is slighly larger than the last with more amenities. Author of two books - 'Keep Left,' a 2008 comedy about the people I met while building my first villa Tesori. Also 'Flat Busted,' a 2013 fictional novel of high adventure set in the Caribbean. I currently reside in Aspen, Colorado and St. John.
Mike Mullen purchased this villa in 2013
Why Mike Mullen chose Chocolate Hole
Well one night in 2000 I went to a charity event in Vail, Colorado. I drank way to much wine and bought two TV's, a $500 savings bond, a shotgun, pink Harley Davis Motorcycle and finally a trip to the Virgin Island! Sold the Harley to a long legged movie producer's wife before morning! Thank God! Fell in love with this lot and basically did nothing with it until 2008 when I started Sopra Mare.
What makes this villa unique
Views are 'killer' from the living, dining, massive decks and equal sized master bedrooms all face the ocean. Other places might have ocean views, but at Bordo Mare you are one with the sea. I have chosen 'Nana' type doors for these locations. Basically five panels that move totally to the right and provide an unobstructed panarama ocean view from every room. The pool deck is large, overlooking the infinity edge pool where there is additional seating around the in pool.
In the morning grab your coffee and take the one mile circuit for a gentle walk of the quiet neighborhood while you watch iguanas lazily move out of your path.
At night, you'll see the lights of St. Thomas and cruise ships moving slowly from right to left bound for their next island port. In the distance most nights, car lights on St. Croix are twinkling some 30 miles away. The low throated sound of tree frogs and gentle crash of surf below will lull you to sleep in your incredible duel master suites. You'll think you're in heaven rather than 'Bordo Mare' Edge of the Sea!

Bordo Mare is just perfect. Mike Mullen (the owner ) thought of everything in detail. The layout of the building is top notch, the views are unbeatable. It’s just my second day here and just keeps getting better. Went to Trunk Bay for the day, then returned ti Bordo Mare to enjoy the sunset while cooking dinner on a professional grill while my family was swimming in the pool right next the me. This place is heaven on earth.
