One could not imagine a more glorious view than the one from the elegant perch of La Mer. This stucco mediterranean 4 bedroom villa rises up from the hillside of Bordeaux Mountain on unspoiled St. John. From this incredible perch, you are as high as you can get without being a bird in flight.

The thoughtful design creates harmony between the indoor and outdoor space and enhances the romance of the spectacular setting. The inviting pool is set in a sheltered courtyard between two pods. It opens into the breathtaking views and offers a cool retreat after a day on one of St. John's glorious beaches and is also a great place to soak and stargaze on balmy nights. This designer decorated home offers glorious surprises at every turn. At once inviting and exotic, with a lush, rich color scheme set off by light bamboo furnishings, this home offers a king size four poster bed in the master bedroom and a gorgeous stone shower large enough for two, offering views all the way to Virgin Gorda.
