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.

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

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.

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!

PERFECT VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
This was our fourth trip to St. John, but the first visit in 14 years. Having previously honeymooned here, we returned with our twins who turned 12 during this vacation. We travel frequently, and stay at high end places...Bordo Mare is simply exceptional. We've rented numerous villas across the country, and this is absolutely our favorite. Not only is the villa gorgeous, the views stunning, but the way in which Mike has outfitted the villa make it stand well above the rest. From the wonderful bedding, to the high end appliances, to the pottery barn dishes...everything in this villa is top notch. In addition, he has thought of everything...wonderfully, luxurious beach towels and bags, a gear bag for your snorkels, beach chairs, coolers. The layout of the house is perfect for two couples or a family. We loved having the kids on the same level as us, something rare in villas on St. John. It has what our family declared the best bathroom in the world...one with a stunning view of the water. For a two bedroom villa it is surprisingly very spacious, with a delightful open floor plan. Dining on the deck stretched high over the water will stay in our memories until we return. Colleen was wonderful, from greeting us at the dock to orienting us to the house. She even dropped off propane midweek so we didn't run out as the villa has a wonderful outdoor grill. Other than that we did not see her, and had complete privacy which was terrific. After a long travel day, there was even dinner waiting for us in the refrigerator the day we arrived. We are already counting down the days until we visit again. I recommend this villa hands down...just don't rent it the week we want it.

AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Bordo Mare in May and enjoyed the amazing views and breezes off of the sea. The villa is perfect for a romantic getaway. We loved talking morning walks around Chocolate Hole and the surrounding area before venturing out the beautiful island of St. John. The entire experience was great – from meeting the greeter at the ferry dock to watching the last sunset over St. Thomas…a wonderful time and wonderful memories.

BEST VILLA ON THE ISLAND!

  • 5 out of 5
Words can not describe the Bordo Mare! The views are amazing from every room in the house, even the showers. This place is very very clean and the owner was very informative and helpful. We booked the Bordo Mare for our honeymoon and it did not disappoint. It was very hard to leave but we definitely plan on returning! We can't imagine staying anywhere else on the island.

BEST HOUSE WE HAVE RENTED

  • 5 out of 5
We have rented houses from VRBO in Hawaii, Nantucket, and Costa Rica and Bordo Mare has been the best of them all. The owner obviously knows what people need to make the stay as effortless and enjoyable as possible. From the welcome meal to the personal shopping, to the fabulously equipped kitchen to the ultimate grill, everything you need is there. The view from every room is spectacular and the house opens up easily to the generous decks on two levels. The house was perfect for our family of 2 kids age 8 and 11 as they had their own room and bathroom but were not in a separate building or level as seems to be the case with many of the properties on St John. Location is perfect as it is close to town, but quiet and relaxing with nothing to hear but the crashing waves below the house. Well decorated and it actually had the same granite that is in our house! Obviously, the owner has good taste. Cannot recommend this house enough.

INCREDIBLE

  • 5 out of 5
While the pictures of this home are beautiful, they do not come close to reality. This home is exceptional in every way. The view of the ocean is spectacular, the entire wall of glass both upstairs and down, completely open to the deck. This is indoor / outdoor living at its best. This home is brand new, and very well put together. From the kitchen appliances to utensils, glasses, flatware, etc it is only high end. Cooking in this home is a pleasure and a privilege. The stainless steel grill is only steps away from the kitchen overlooking the infinity pool and ocean below. Most rental homes feel like rental homes with cheap linens, lumpy mattresses, cheap furniture and strange smells but not this one. This home is VERY clean and fresh. It truly felt like a privilege to spend a week here. The owner went out of his way to answer all questions, provide local knowledge and insure that we we comfortable during our stay. This home is close enough to Cruz Bay for quick trips to the grocery stores or great dinning, but far enough away where it is quiet and peaceful. There was nothing about this home that was oversold, our expectations were exceeded in every regard. We have no complaints at all, and look forward to returning to Bordo Mare often.

ALREADY BOOKED BORDO MARE FOR NEXT YEAR!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I have been traveling to St. John for many years but I can't imagine that from now on we will stay anywhere but Bordo Mare for what is hopefully many more years to come. The view is just incredible and the ability to slide back the "walls" and let the sound of the sea come inside is amazing. I woke up up many nights to the sound of the ocean and the view of the lights of a cruise ship as it passed by in the distance. Everything is top quality and the owner built and decorated this villa as if it is a private residence and not a rental property. The design and decor are first rate. This is without a doubt the best two bedroom villa on St. John and one of the nicest villas on the island regardless of size or location. We have already reserved Bordo Mare for our return to St. John in early 2015. Just an amazing villa!
