This couples-only villa boasts a centrally located pool and large pool deck with picturesque views of Coral Bay, St John. Anchorage Aweigh villa is comprised of a main house with two master suites. If only one bedroom is desired, the upper bedroom will be available. If a second bedroom is desired, we will open up the lower bedroom. Both bedrooms are located on separate floors and allow maximum privacy. The maximum number of guests at any given time is four. It is a tranquil and serene setting with spectacular views of Coral Bay harbor, mountains and the historical 250+year-old Moravian Church. The villa has travertine marble floors, cable railing, air-conditioned bedrooms, outdoor stone showers, full kitchen, indoor/outdoor living and dining areas, a gas grill, laundry facility and a pool that is all tiled. All of the appliances are new and include a full-sized stainless steel refrigerator, gas range, microwave and dishwasher. Please note our calendar is accurate and up to date. The villa offers two equal king-sized bedrooms with gorgeous brand new furniture. The mattresses are Serta icomfort memory foam with cooling gel. The upper bedroom is on the main level. It opens out to a screened-in covered porch. The bedroom is air conditioned. The bathroom has a granite vanity. Attached to the bathroom is an outdoor stone shower under an open air roof. The second king bedroom is located on the lower pool level, facing the harbor. It has the very same amenities as the upper bedroom. It has a covered porch facing the harbor, which is not screened-in The kitchen has blue pearl granite counters with an exquisite glass tile backsplash. It is filled with all of the amenities you will need to prepare many gourmet meals. There is an indoor dining table to enjoy should you decide to eat inside. The living room has two love seats overlooking both the church and harbor. There is a 12' sliding glass door facing the harbor for you to enjoy the panoramic views. There is a flat-screened television with DVD/DISH in here as well. The main house has an expansive wrap-around porch. We have an oversized sectional outdoor couch to relax and enjoy the view. There is also a dining table to enjoy meals alfresco. Sit and enjoy a cool drink on the breezy, covered porch while watching the sailboats bobbing on the harbor. From the living room, the pool and lower bedroom are accessed through an indoor set of stairs. Sunday mornings are a special time here. You’ll hear the church bells ring at 9:30 am. The traditions of this historic, over 250 year old, Moravian church can be felt through the choral singing that drifts up the hillside. It’s an extraordinary experience you’ll not soon forget. Coral Bay is located on the quiet, mellow side of St. John. A 2-minute drive down the hill will bring you to a variety of shopping, restaurant and entertainment options. Beaches and the National Park hiking trails can all be found a short distance away. You'll definitely want a rental car so you can take advantage of some of the most pristine views of the lush, tropical hillsides and aqua blue seas. The 'busy' town of Cruz Bay is a 20 minute drive away. This house has been an ongoing dream of ours and we have taken great pride in the construction of it. You can see our hard work on our blog that can be found on Google. We have completed a gorgeous 10 x 20 mosaic tiled swimming pool overlooking the harbor, with a 600 sq. ft. pool deck and adjacent tropical garden. Part of it is shaded by a huge royal palm tree and part is under cover of a shaded porch. The pool is a saline pool - meaning there is very little chemical use. Your hair, skin and clothing will not be affected as they might with a chlorinated system. Adjacent to the main house, yet completely separate, is our cottage. It is a one-bedroom unit that is our living quarters while we are in St. John part-time. The main house and cottage were designed with privacy in mind. As you can see in the photographs, both houses face in different directions. The two houses share the pool and pool deck. Keeping privacy in mind, we do not use the pool when guests are present. As you can see from our reviews, Anchorage Aweigh has become a popular vacation destination. We hope that you will find our villa, and the island of St. John itself, a wonderful place for your holiday.More
