A charming and cozy two-bedroom villa tucked away in a tranquil and secluded cul-de-sac, Chez Shell overlooks Great Cruz Bay and a panorama of yachts riding at anchor.
A foyer ushers you into the open-plan Great Room with an area for dining, a living area furnished with comfortable seating, and adjacent, a cheery well-equipped kitchen. The villa's floors are cool, smooth Jerusalem stone tile. An eclectic mix of Indian, Balinese and American furniture, including some antique pieces, enhances Chez Shell's pleasing interior space. Ceiling fans and screening keep cool tradewinds moving through the villa.
Off one side of the Great Room are two equally-sized bedrooms with air-conditioning, each with a romantic queen four-poster bed swathed with netting. Each bedroom features its own ensuite tiled bath with a shower.
On the opposite side of the Great Room is the walkway out to Chez Shell's just-completed swimming pool and sun deck looking out to the Bay and St. Thomas.
The Great Room extends through two graceful arches to a fully-screened bonus indoor/outdoor living area furnished with tropical wicker pieces, a sublime place for reading or admiring the island view. A desk for your laptop has a sea view, if you absolutely must keep up with your emails during your vacation. Screen doors lead out to Chez Shell's expansive terrace for alfresco dining and pure relaxation. Situated within a grove of trees, the terrace provides privacy from neighbors, a lovely view of the Bay and technicolor sunsets over Pillsbury Sound and St. Thomas at cocktail time.
Well priced, well equipped and enclosed in a bower of tropical palms and flowering gardens for lush privacy, and so comfortable, Chez Shell may well be the delightful and conveniently-located island home you've been seeking for your St. John vacation.
