Dream Come True
Dream Come True
A Dream Come True is a charming villa which is located about twenty feet above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean in the quiet and picturesque cove known as Devers Bay on the south shore of St. John. There are only a handful of homes on Devers Bay, so this hidden cove has retained its natural beauty, serenity, and privacy. The warm waters below, accessed by gradual, concrete steps, offer abundant snorkeling adventures, swimming opportunities, beach combing, and romantic, moonlight strolls on the beach. A hallmark of Dream Come True is its outstanding ocean views from all areas. The lapping of the gentle waves is a serene accompaniment to the backdrop of the day. The shops, restaurants, and nightlife of Cruz Bay are only a 2-3 mile drive on paved roads.
This charming, two-level home was completed in the fall of 2004. Dream Come True incorporates many classic Caribbean design elements such as solid, concrete construction, native stone walls, Doric columns, tiled exterior decks, tiled interior floors and beamed cathedral ceilings. On the upper level, a columned trellis lines the tiled pathway into the living room. The dining room, kitchen, and a half bath are also on the upper level, along with two master bedrooms/baths, and a covered deck that runs the length of the villa.
Each bedroom is recessed slightly from the other to afford unobstructed views of the sea. The third bedroom/bath is located on the lower level, which is accessed by exterior stairs, and it also has a breathtaking view of the sea and its own, private deck. To ensure privacy, the always-warm pool, and the hot tub and sun deck are also located on the upper level, and have been placed on the west end of the villa, while the bedrooms are on the east end.
LIVING/DINING/KITCHEN. The living room is tastefully and comfortably furnished in aged honey, Henry Link, wicker furniture with matching accessories. The villa has been lovingly decorated with emphasis on local art and artists. A cable, color television, and DVD player are included along with a stereo system which has the capacity for CDs, cassettes and includes AM/FM radio. There is also a portable stereo for use on the pool deck. Screened, sliding glass doors open to a covered deck on the front of the house facing the sea, and a sun deck wraps around the side and back of the villa. The interior dining table seats 6 and the table on the deck also seats 6 for outside dining. In addition, there is a bar counter in the dining area.
The kitchen is three steps above the dining area so that when you are standing at the food preparation counter, you are afforded a breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea as you prepare the meal. The kitchen is well equipped with a 4-burner gas stove and oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, brisker, blender, washer/dryer, and a large assortment of dinnerware, cookware, and accessories. A telephone, gas barbecue grill, coolers and beach chairs are included.
BEDROOMS. All three master bedrooms are similar in size with queen beds, split system, quiet running air conditioning, and gorgeous views of the bay. One upper level bedroom has an outdoor, garden shower, and the other upper level bedroom has an outdoor shower with a view of the sea. The third bedroom has a glass block, indoor shower, with a view of the sea accessible by opening the canopy windows.
