NOW RE-OPENING after Hurricane Irma, this two-story villa has been REBUILT with a complete REDESIGN of the main floor and is READY FOR THE 2019-20 SEASON. Located in the town of Cruz Bay, Tropical Panorama is a gated estate situated 90 feet above sea level with over 4,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor livable space, overlooking a 270-degree tropical panoramic view of Cruz Bay, St. Thomas, Pillsbury Sound, and their surrounding islands. While this home was always designed to enable residents to truly experience indoor/outdoor living, Tropical Panorama’s professionally decorated interior is very spacious with just over 3,000 square feet of air-conditioned living space. Recent renovations have enhanced the interior and exterior of the home and fully complements the stunning views and the impressive private pool. We are excited about the outcome and certain that many visitors will enjoy creating lasting memories here. The property has always had one of the best views of the water and sunset, as well as boasting a large private pool and impeccable views.
Tropical Panorama is positioned on a large hilltop parcel with lots of vegetation. Because of its hilltop location, the ground-level, front entrance opens onto the top floor, consisting of a half bath and a great room offering a seating area and a large dining table, as well as an open kitchen with barstool seating along a spacious island countertop. The seating area is well appointed with an HD TV with cable service, a DVD player, a wireless printer/scanner, and Wi-Fi. The kitchen is fully equipped for all of your culinary needs (dishes, glassware, utensils, pots, and pans) and includes a full-size refrigerator, an electric range, a convection oven, a convection microwave, a dishwasher, and a Keurig coffee maker.
The interior spaces on the top floor are cooled by air conditioning that you control, or simply open the 35 foot-long worth of glass sliding doors that form two adjoining sides of the great room and allow the tropical breezes to pass through. On this level beyond the sliding doors, there is a large, open, but fully covered, veranda or lanai providing an additional sitting and dining area with a complete summer kitchen (Coyote gas grill, refrigerator, icemaker, and sink). The lanai offers the best spot in the whole house to spend hours reading a book or enjoying a leisurely breakfast, listening to your choice of music via the indoor-outdoor speaker system. Beyond the lanai is a large cantilevered patio or deck adjoining the pool and overlooking Pillsbury Sound, Bordering the deck are two private bedrooms, each with a king-sized bed and an en suite bathroom.
A stairwell located off the lanai leads to the lower-level hallway spanning the width of the house, with a lockable barn door at the foot of the stairwell opening to the outside. This hallway provides access to the three bedrooms and their en suite bathrooms on the lower level. Both the Master and Guest Suites are furnished with king-sized beds and have exterior sliding doors providing a view of tropical landscaping, while the interior bedroom is furnished with two, twin-over-double bunk beds.
The king-sized bed in the Master Suite features a Sleep Number mattress while the Guest Suite offers a TempurPedic mattress. Split-wall unit air conditioners permit dehumidified, cooled air comfort within all five bedrooms. The décor in each of the four bedrooms with the king-sized beds is modern and upscale. The bunk bedroom and its private bathroom provide space ideal for guests traveling with children as this room can sleep up to 6 children or a few adults in the two twin-over-double bunk beds. (The top single bunks are really only appropriate for children or small teens).
Parents traveling with young children should be aware that each of the three downstairs bedrooms offers an independent entrance to the shared hallway with doors that can be locked from the inside and outside while the two upstairs bedrooms each have lockable sliding doors that open onto the pool deck. There are also security cameras around the perimeter of the property that are in place for your safety. These cameras do not film either the interior of the house or the lanai, deck, and pool areas. To assure you of your safety and privacy, there is security access inside the house that you can turn on at any time to view the security feed. We mention this, as we want your stay to be nothing less than fabulous. For this reason, we want to share as much as possible about the design of Tropical Panorama, enabling you to decide if it is a good fit for you and your vacation needs.
Tropical Panorama offers an incredibly prime location – a short walk down the hill to Cruz Bay restaurants, bars, and shops (and only 0.4 mile from the house to the ferry). Perhaps more importantly, you only need to walk home after visiting the many famous Cruz Bay bars. There is no need for a taxi, as you are right next to where all the action is happening, but far enough away that you do not have to be around the action when you want peace and privacy. Bar none, this is one of the best locations on the island for seeing daily amazing sunsets and pinch-me daytime views, as well as a terrific light show from St. Thomas at night.
Tropical Panorama will easily host corporate or wedding events as the top floor offers large common spaces with amazing views. (An additional fee and deposit will apply.)
The Owners will consider a trade for comparable vacation homes of similar quality ($1MM-$5MM) in desirable locations. Please inquire and see if there is interest.
