Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in St John - Beach Music

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths With A Pool And Billiard Room (Sleeps

Beach Music is a spacious (4500 sq. ft.) and very comfortable two level home located on a bay with a path to the beach and access to the ocean. Easy driveway access and parking on the upper level and entry into the lanai - a roofed, screened-in veranda. The lanai leads into the 750 sq/ft great room which contains the living, dining and kitchen areas. The two upper level bedrooms are on either side of the great room and both open to water views and decks. A dining deck connects to the great room, and the pool and sundeck are located in a well landscaped setting on the left side of the villa. Exterior stairs lead down to the two lower level bedrooms, the billiards room and more deck areas.

The house itself is quite attractive with a traditional Caribbean design featuring cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, walls of beautiful native stonework, terra cotta tiled floors throughout, multiple ceiling fans, over-sized sliding glass and oiled French mahogany doors, furnishings and accessories of mahogany, bamboo and rattan, and a deck off every bedroom.

About Marisa Antolino

We are from Columbus, Ohio and spend our winters on beautiful St. John. There is no place like it in the world. You will fall in love with the beauty of the land and the friendliness and laid-back nature of the people. Let us know if you need any recommendations or tips for your visit - we are happy to help!

Marisa Antolino purchased this house in 2007

Why Marisa Antolino chose St John

While the island (and surrounding islands!) is abundant with fantastic activities, often times when friends or family come to visit us here, we joke that the best spot on the island is our home. St. John boasts world class restaurants and beaches, but we love to cook in the open kitchen - which looks out over the ocean and is truly made for gathering friends around. While we are located so close to Cruz Bay, and Beach Music is always fun, hanging out on the deck or downstairs with some music and beers while playing pool can be the perfect spot to spend your evenings. The property is high enough to have a wonderful breeze that keeps bugs away, yet is a short path away from the ocean. We looked and looked for a house like this and are so glad we waited for the right one. We hope you have as many good times in it as we do.

What makes this house unique

Beach Music is one of a very few villas with direct access to the ocean and a small beach. Perfect place for swimming/snorkeling right from your villa! Lots of amazing marine life to be seen right in our bay. Stop at the outside shower to rinse off after your swim. Many homes on St. John have incredibly steep driveways - or even dirt roads to get there. Besides being close to the Westin and Cruz Bay, we immediately rejoiced at the easy incline of our driveway. Besides that, we love the pool that overlooks the ocean, and the covered gazebo area of the deck that is perfect for shade lovers and grilling out/dining while overlooking the ocean. The two top bedrooms are beautiful with fantastic views, privacy and access to the upper deck. The two bottom bedrooms both offer a great deal of privacy and access to the lower deck - perfect for groups of families or couples.

Beautiful villa; beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven had a great time during our stay at Beach Music. The villa is conveniently located, has everything (and more) that we needed, and was just fantastic! The villa has all the comforts of a well-loved home - comfy sofas and beds, cozy places to read or nap, large tables for family dining, blenders for making "Lime in the Coconut" (but go to Miss Lucy's and have one of theirs - good food with goats and chickens and a spectacular ocean view) and so much more! The bedrooms are spacious; the two master bedrooms on the upper level have spectacular views of Chocolate Hole - which is accessible via a short walk. We snorkeled in Chocolate Hole and many other spots on the island; did some scuba diving. There are many iguanas that make their home in the beautiful landscaping near the pool - we named the largest one Keyzer Soze and he provided lots of entertainment while we lounged on the deck. We had excellent, friendly communication with the owner and their property manager. The only downside is that we had to go home! Would go back in a second!

What a Fabulous Place to spend Christmas--Albany, NY and Portland, Oregon

  • 5 of 5

our large family all adults had a wonderful time at Beach Music. The house is great with a lovely indoor and outdoor kitchen. The beach is wonderful for sitting out and snorkeling. We especially loved the wildlife around the house, many lizards and birds. the beds were all comfortable and the pool table downstairs was a big hit with the adult children. The island is beautiful and we spent all our time snorkeling at the various beaches.

Great vacaction home

  • 5 of 5

Came with our three young adult sons and their wives/girlfriend. Lots of space and spread out so that people had a little alone space as well as wonderful shared areas. Pool, grill, pool table, sunning space and shade space, beach and snorkeling. Close enough to Cruz Bay and the north beaches. Peter met us at the ferry and got us settled and the rest of the week was wonderful. Great home for what we were looking for and we had a great time.

Beautiful Villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This villa did not leave anything out! We had all the amenities we needed and more. When my friends (7 of us) were looking for a place to stay and we wanted to have something for everyone. we had 3 couples and one single lady. the 4 bedrooms fit our needs perfectly. Sitting outside for morning coffee and overlooking Chocolate Hole was so amazing. The bay is beautiful and we loved watching boats come and go.

To say the house was well equipped was an understatement. It was clean, beautiful, and left nothing to the imagination. Music, Wine openers and views to die for. I could see why they call it Beach Music. At night when you listen carefully, you can hear the ocean waves, the birds and the sound of the breezes. Thank you Marisa. We will be back and hopefully soon.

PS, Gail and (sorry I forgot his name that picked us up) They were awesome and let us know all the great stuff going on in town. Thanks again to all! Amazing place with great people......

Nature's realxing sonata at Beach Music

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful views from every room in the house at Beach Music make this the perfect getaway from reality. Truly a paradise found and one where my husband and I will hopefully return often in the future.

The living room and bedrooms with the large sliding doors allow for open living to the the tradewinds to provide the cool breeze and have the surf lull you to sleep. From the hammock for lazy afternoon naps to the easy walk to beach and perfect snorkeling to the warm salt water pool and outdoor dining area, this is a most desirable escape we could have personally designed. Private sunning porches off of the bedrooms allowed for privacy even when vacationing with others and were a delicious way to secure personal quiet time without infringing on others.

Can't wait to return to this little piece of heaven!

Most amazing location

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Beach Music we had no idea it would be this close to town. It is less than a 5 minute drive from all the restaurants (We loved La Tapa and Caneel Bay for Sushi which were expensive and Rhum lines which was fairly priced) and grocery stores. Yet it was a world apart. We never heard a horn or a siren in the 8 days we were there. In two minutes we could walk down from the house and be swimming in beautiful Chocolate Hole. We saw all sorts of pretty fish, eagle rays and sea turtles (our favorite).

The house itself was quite large. There were plenty of spots to sit and read in the sun or in the shade. The view was to die for. I couldn't wait to wake each morning and watch the sun rise. The other thing we loved about the house was that it was never hot. The high ceilings and trade winds kept it very comfortable day and night.

We loved it so much that we have already booked it again for next year.

Enjoy

Car: recommended

Located in Chocolate Hole, Beach Music is in one of the most desired locations on St. John. Just a five minute drive into Cruz Bay, you are close to restaurants, bars and shopping. The island provides wonderful hikes and some of the best beaches in the world - all within a relatively short drive. Spend the day snorkeling at Trunk Bay or time your visit to catch a nighttime full moon hike. For fitness buffs, our house is located in a very walkable neighborhood off of the main road. Scenic views of the ocean along the way! The Westin workout facility is a short drive or leisurely walk away (which also offers boat rentals, dive courses, etc.)
