2 Bedrooms with Bathrooms En Suite (Sleeps 4)
Tucked in its own private enclave behind an electronic gate, Isla Vista has sweeping sea views from its breezy hillside location. Lushly landscaped grounds surround this two-bedroom house, which is bordered by the gorgeous Virgin Islands National Park. The property offers wonderful seclusion yet it’s just a few minutes’ drive into Cruz Bay, Caneel Bay Hotel’s beaches and Hawksnest Beach. A few minutes farther are all the truly beautiful north shore National Park beaches. Isla Vista features a spacious two-level floor plan with beautiful custom interiors, expanded by dramatic island views stretching to the horizon.

Isla Vista’s breezy and secluded Caneel Hill location and amazing views are impressive, but the interior design and the attention paid to detail puts this house in a class by itself – from cool travertine floors throughout; vaulted cypress ceilings; rich mahogany cabinetry, windows and doors; custom lighting inside and out to the artistic stained glass windows. The motif of grand arches continues all through the house allowing each spacious room to flow into one another. Designer furnishings are absolutely top-notch and good looking.

Outside richly landscaped grounds and stately palms surround a spectacular 35’ heated swimming pool, adjoining Jacuzzi with a waterfall into the pool and a tiled travertine deck for sunbathing. The view from here is like a panoramic postcard of sky and sea, Cruz Bay, the unspoiled National Park and St. Thomas in the distance.
