Your home away from home is a spacious Carribean villa-style suite directly on the shores of Water Bay within the premier resort of Point Pleasant. As you enter the front door, it won't take long to notice your special gift, my personal treat, to accompany you during your stay with us on the island. As you settle in, you'll notice that your villa features a 250+ square feet balcony to soak up the Carribean sun and admire the uninterrupted views of St. John nessled beside a handful of neighboring Caribbean Islands. If you'd like, take a break from the patio and relax indoors. The wall-to-wall sliding glass door... will allow you to enjoy the soothing Eastward wind as it flows throughout the villa. When you're ready to call it a day, turn in on the luxurious king-sized bed for two, separated by a wooden sliding privacy door. Feel free to bring company as your villa comfortably sleeps 4.
The resort at Point Pleasant has plenty to offer. After a complete nights rest, head outdoors and explore the 15-acre island preserve. As you meander through the many nature trails, you are likely to catch a glimpse of a variety of plant and animal species, but your only worry - catching Mr. Lizard on camera before he scurries off and out of view; Virgin Island wildlife is harmless. Pick the right trail and you'll find yourself peacefully watching the happenings at sea while listening to the sound of the surf from the comfort of The Resort gazebo from high above. Explore further beyond and you will discover the private Sugar Beach dedicated solely to the patrons of Point Pleasant. Later, stop by the tennis courts, the seaside bar (literally!), or one of the three sparkling pools the resort has to offer and soak up some more Caribbean sun. And who knows, you may just run into an impromptu performance by Jimmy Buffet, poolside... It's happened before!
The nautical town of Red Hook, which is only 5 minutes and a taxi ride away, provides a variety of shops, good food, as well as an entertaining nightlife (Personal favorite: Island Time Pub) when the need to adventure beyond the confines of Point Pleasant arises.
