Sopra Mare

· Villa



Oceanfront. Pool light show. The only thing that’s missing is you.

The moment you arrive, the pampering begins. You are met dockside and escorted to your rental car. Then whisked away for a short five-minute trip to Sopra Mare.

I know you are tired from a long day’s journey so after you are acquainted with Sopra Mare sit down to a full course meal complete with wine provided by us, of course, on your outside patio table.

Listen to the soft winds blow and enjoy the sounds of island life. Totally unwind from your hectic travels.

It’s getting late so sit in the 80-degree private pool with extended light show a drink in your hand while watching the lights of nearby islands.

Listen, do you hear that? Not a sound of another person near you. It’s just you and the Caribbean night.

Retire to the master suite fit for a king. A heavenly bed with Ritz Carlton pillows and 400 thread count color coordinated sheets await. There’s no white linens at your villa you. You expect, and we provide the very best.

Sleep well in your king bed as you watch cruise ships on the horizon through the full expansive doors then gently lay your head down for the first night of vacation.

Soothing surf crash below will quickly lull you to a night of blissful slumber.

Arise early, enjoy a refreshing shower from your rain forest shower head and of course, accompanied by London Molton Brown bath products world renowned for luxury at the most famous world five star hotels. Nothing is too good for you at Sopra Mare.

Now you’re ready for the beach. Load one of the multiple sized coolers, pack plenty of beach towels, grab a couple of Tommy Bahama ultra-comfortable beach chairs and begin your island adventure.

Each day you will rejoice in selecting Sopra Mare as your island vacation destination this time and for many vacations to come.

Sopra Mare (Above The Sea) is a stunning 1,600 sq ft cliffside villa, built n solid native rock set atop Maria Bluff in the most exclusive location in Chocolate Hole with crashing surf below

This unique home offers gated privacy yet has a one mile level walking circuit on paved roads where you may sip your morning coffee and watch iguana’s cross your path. The villa is continually cooled by a slight gentle breeze which generally assures no biting insects.

Less than five minutes to town of Cruz Bay which offers excellent jazz at several locations on Saturday and Sunday including the famous Beach Bar – partial setting for my first book about St. John ‘Keep Left.’ Shopping and night life abound in Cruz Bay.

Other features include full laundry, digital cable, two connections for your iPod or MP3 player, secure, wireless high-speed Internet access for your laptop. A Bose speaker system for Bluetooth with your laptop or phone.

We want you to enjoy the full villa experience – therefore; if just two of you, no problem, bedrooms are NEVER locked off from your access.

Your villa is a world apart from noise and traffic; yet three minutes to the Westin, it’s sandy beach and great Sunday Brunches.

Enjoy the song of the tree-frogs late at night and wake to the hummingbirds making a feast on Sopra Mare flowers. Ceiling fans in all rooms and full individual frosty air conditioning in each bedroom await you.

Laze away in the pool on colorful rafts and turn on the pool lite show when the sun goes down – five colors and four speeds for your enjoyment.

If it’s the right time grab the villa binoculars and watch the Rolex Sailing Cup from the balconies with a cool beverage in your hand or dolphins, turtles and the occasional whale.

Sopra Mare has everything you would expect from an island home; convenience, elegance and comfort.

I look forward to your arrival at Sopra Mare we have a high percentage of returning guests, more than 40%. They recognize our high standards and striving for constant improvement.

Our overall occupancy at Sopra Mare is the highest on the island for two bedrooms. Guests expect and receive the best in quality, attention to detail from my excellent staff who have been providing service year after year at Sopra Mare.

NOTE: If you’re seriously considering my villa, I suggest you plan well in advance at least six to twelve months prior to your vacation dates – especially in Winter months. WE RENT UP VERY EARLY WITH MANY RETURNING GUESTS

I actually got to St. John by mistake after over bidding at a charity event in Vail, Colorado some years ago. This was the result of definitely drinking way too much wine by the time the auction began. By morning..
