About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

We fell in love with St. John almost 50 years ago after a long stretch of years visiting Caneel Bay. The natural beauty of the island with its mountains, beaches, woodlands, and trails attracted us and motivated us to bring our four children to the island. They, too, fell in love with St. John, the diversity of the environment, the coral reefs and white sand beaches, the people, excellent restaurants, and Caribbean shopping. Their enthusiasm encouraged us to purchase HAIKU, the first architect-designed house (by Daniel Sullivan) on the island. Entry is through a garden gate beyond which is a covered, open air living/dining room pavilion adjoining a tiled patio and swimming pool that captures the enticing vista of the turquoise sea. It feels like a tropical paradise when one walks through the gate to see the vista across Chocolate Hole Bay, capturing the natural beauty and romance of the island. Haiku is architecturally designed in West Indian style influenced by the Danish plantation great-houses. Built on one floor at ground level – there are no cliffs, railings, decks, or stairs - it is safe for children and is wheelchair accessible. Relax by the pool or in the hot tub, enjoy the views of the bays, the ships sailing by, and the hummingbirds and bananaquits that are attracted to the sugar feeder kept filled by our guests. The two bedrooms with bath are air-conditioned and separated by the living/dining room, allowing for privacy for two couples. A third bedroom is adjacent to the Master suite and perfect for another couple or children. The 3 bedrooms and living/dining room are outfitted with ceiling fans.The kitchen is fully equipped with a four-burner stove, oven, microwave, toaster, blender for cocktails, refrigerator, and plenty of cupboard and counter space. China, glasses, silverware, cooking vessels, and utensils are provided as well as place mats, dish towels, gas barbeque grill, and other amenities to make cooking easy and fun. Water is provided through filtered cisterns. A washing machine, dryer, and clothesline are located behind the kitchen.
