LOCATION. Beach Music is located in a very picturesque setting on a waterfront lot on the west side of Chocolate Hole Harbor. This villa sits between its neighbors on the left and right, Ciellodonna and Reefside Villa, and has a path down to the adjoining sand beach of Chocolate Hole Harbor. A 2 minute walk down a private path leads to the beach where you will discover good snorkeling among reef fish and turtles, plus swimming and kayaking in the calm 82 degree waters. The mature landscaping and surroundings of Beach Music create a peaceful setting that seems far removed from civilization, yet it's an easy 5 minute drive into Cruz Bay, and the spa, restaurants and beach at the Westin Resort are a 10 minute walk, or a 2 minute drive. This cozy spot also offers discreet clothing optional privacy at the villa. Beach Music looks to the east and south, with lovely harbor views of sailboats floating on a turquoise sea, plus colorful sunrises most of the year. This southeast orientation also bathes your pool and decks in sunshine for most of the day.
DESIGN. Beach Music is a spacious (4500 sq. ft.) and very comfortable 2-level home. You park on the upper level and enter into the lanai - a roofed, screened in veranda. The lanai leads into the 750 sq/ft great room which contains the living, dining and kitchen areas. The two upper level bedrooms are on either side of the great room and both open to water views and decks. A dining deck connects to the great room, and the pool and sundeck are located in a well landscaped setting on the left side of the villa. Exterior stairs lead down to the two lower level bedrooms, the billiards room and more deck areas.
The house itself is quite attractive with a traditional Caribbean design featuring cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, walls of beautiful native stonework, terra cotta tiled floors throughout, multiple ceiling fans, oversized sliding glass and oiled French mahogany doors, furnishings and accessories of mahogany, bamboo and rattan, and a deck off every bedroom.

The upper bedrooms both have tiled baths and showers and 12 foot screened sliding glass pocket doors that recess into the walls to provide soft breezes and romantic harbor views.

Both of the lower bedrooms are air conditioned and they share a bath and shower, and both are accessed by exterior stairs.

CARIBBEAN VILLAS COMMENTS. Beach Music, which was formerly offered by us under the name of Cygnus, is blessed with an upscale and tranquil waterfront location. This setting is highly desired for its picturesque views and privacy plus walking access to swimming, snorkeling and boating. Some of the appealing features of Beach Music that we especially like are:
* a 50 inch TV/DVD with a 5-speaker surround sound system and iPod, plus DSL internet connectivity that usually tests out at speeds fast enough for day trading on the NY stock exchange,
* an indoor/outdoor second living room (the lanai),
* a billiards room with a regulation sized pool table,
* a pool and sundeck with clothing optional privacy,
* a roomy and comfortable interior which will easily accommodate 2-4 couples or a large group or family gathering,
* handicapped accessibility,
* its about a 5-minute drive to/from Cruz Bay
One of our guests wrote in his evaluation, "Who couldn't fall in love with this house and want to stay forever?" Our answer is "no one," for everyone will find something they love about this villa. If Beach Music is unavailable, or if you want to rent two 4-bedroom villas, look at Ciellodonna and Reefside Villa.
* “We had a wonderful relaxing week at Beach Music. We especially loved the well stocked kitchen, beautiful view, and cool island breezes.”
* “St. John is as close to paradise as we have found. We decided to stay at Beach Music by majority vote. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. For us it was the perfect place. We range in age from 13 months to 59 years and there was something for each of us. This has been a wonderful family vacation.”
* “Beach Music is heaven on Earth. The gentle breeze and beautiful scenery out the back make leaving that much harder.”
* “This island is the most amazing place I have ever seen! Your home is amazing!! I love the pool, the view, the pool table room and the hammock is perfectly located in the shade for a nice break from the sun. The beach was very refreshing and nicely laid out. This by far was one of the best vacations I have ever had!!”
