Overview

Serenata De La Playa is located on the beach in beautiful Klein Bay—a small neighborhood of luxury homes on St. John's Caribbean coast. Serenata is the next to last villa on a road with no through traffic, so there is little or no noise in this location. This is a truly superb setting that offers exquisite tranquility and undisturbed waterfront natural beauty. Although there are two other villas on the beach, (including Carnival Beach), tropical landscaping and an intelligent site plan produce a private and lovely setting. In this quiet and peaceful location the song of the gently breaking surf is usually the only sound that you will hear. Serenata is a sun worshipper’s villa – it faces south and is blessed with sunshine from 9 am – 5 pm, and also offers clothing-optional privacy for a full body tan.
The pebble beach at Klein Bay is protected from heavy surf and strong winds by Ditliff Point, a peninsula that juts into the Caribbean and shelters Klein Bay. Almost every day the small surf and crystal clear waters provide good swimming, snorkeling and kayaking – all just a few feet from your villa. A 5-10 minute swim or snorkel takes you to another unknown beach—the white sand beach on Ditliff Point.
Ditliff Point is slowly being developed, yet your view from Serenata is as beautiful and unspoiled as it was 30 years ago. Although Cruz Bay is only a 10 minute drive on paved roads, rarely does a tourist ever drive or hike into this lovely, peaceful location. 

Serenata is a gorgeous three level villa that was completed in the winter of 2009 and consists of a main house and a pool house/tower built of stone. The building materials and the design are classic Caribbean, with concrete, native stone, and antique brick, plus terra cotta tiled floors and cathedral ceilings throughout. The house is dug into the base of a hill that rises up from the beach. You park on the second level and enter into the great room, which contains the interior living and dining areas, plus the kitchen, a powder room (half bath) and a laundry room. To the right of the great room is the main house bedroom. The pool house is a 2 1/2 level stone tower, located on the left of the main house. One pool bedroom is on the second level, while a flight of exterior stairs leads up to the pool bedroom on the 3rd level. Off the front of the great room is an exceedingly comfortable lanai, also called a loja, which is an outdoor living/dining area.
From the lanai, exterior stairs lead down a half level to the pool and spacious pool deck. Exterior stairs also lead from the lanai down to the master bedroom and the twin bedroom, both of which are on the 1st level. The large master bedroom is directly below the lanai.

LIVING/DINING AREAS. The interior living room is even more comfortable than the photos show, with “sink into it” furniture, central a/c, a 42” flat screen TV/DVD and AM/FM stereo/CD played through Bose speakers and high speed wireless internet.
The lanai is a natural extension of the living room, but it feels so different - very airy and tropical. This lanai definitely captures the essence of a classic island villa. Under the lanais roof, cushioned furniture seats 8 while the view through the columned arches is turquoise water and blue skies.
In the great room the dining table seats 8-10, and there are 4 high back swivel armchairs at the bar/counter. The dining table on the lanai seats 6-8 and there is a breakfast/lunch table for 4-6 on the pool deck. 

The attractive and well equipped KITCHEN has mahogany cabinets with granite counter tops, stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances, including a side by side refrigerator and freezer with water and ice dispenser, a 4 burner gas stove and oven, double sink, microwave, dishwasher, a blender, toaster and a coffeemaker with a coffee grinder. All dishes, dinnerware, pots and pans, cooking utensils and dining linens for a party of 10 are provided. 

BEDROOMS. The bedrooms of Serenata were designed to insure an excellent degree of privacy and to capture the beautiful waterfront views. From the 1st floor to the 3rd floor the bedrooms are as follows;
  • Bedroom 1 - the master bedroom - 1st floor- 375 sq/ft – king bed – terra cotta patio
  • Bedroom 2 - the twins bedroom - 1st floor - 200 sq/ft – twin beds – terra cotta patio
  • Bedroom 3 – main house bedroom – 2nd floor – 210 sq/ft - king bed – private balcony
  • Bedroom 4 – pool house bedroom – 2nd floor – 210 sq/ft - king bed – private balcony
  • Bedroom 5 – pool house bedroom – 3rd floor – 210 sq/ft - king bed – private balcony
All the bedrooms are fully screened and have central a/c. All have a private bath with a gorgeous and very private stone shower with views of blue skies and blue water. Bedrooms 1, 2 and 5 are accessed by exterior tiled stairs. Bedrooms 1, 2, 4, and 5 can be accessed through the great room, or from a private gated entrance that doesn’t require entering the great house.

The POOL. The pool and sun deck are amenities that will keep you and your kids glued to Serenata. There are a couple of pool features worth mentioning. First, a third of the pool is 4 feet deep and the other 2/3rds is 6-7 feet deep, providing areas for different levels of swimmers. Second, in the shallow end a bench seat runs the width of the pool, providing a terrific place to sit in the warm water and have a drink, a conversation, a contemplative moment, or a bit of each. The barbeque pit is on the pool deck.

With its classic design features, central (built in) air conditioning, tasteful and comfortable furnishings, and a 5 million dollar price tag, Serenata would be considered a supreme luxury home in any St. John neighborhood. But Serenata’s beachfront location really sets it apart. You’ve got to feel it to understand it, but all your senses are caressed in this villa. The trade winds blow soft, warm and gentle as they caress your skin. The constant background music of small surf breaking on a pebble beach is a calming melody that caresses your ears. The beauty of sunshine, starlight and moonbeams reflecting on the sea caresses your eyes, while the light fragrance of the sea is so real that you can almost taste it. Every tired, stressed out, recession-weary human should spend a week in this house – it will breath new life and energy into anyone.
