Villa Fratelli Giardino is a resplendent companion property to Villa Fratelli Cresta, just across the road. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath villa is located in the peaceful Nazareth Estate on St. Thomas East End with thrilling views of Red Hook Bay and tranquil St. John, and on to the British Virgin Islands. Gated for privacy, with a flourish of carefully manicured flora, Villa Fratelli Giardino means literally, My Brother's Garden in Italian.
Villa Fratelli Giardino consists of two separate pavilions, separated by an open-air foyer. Your first impression will be of the dazzling ocean view before you, dotted with pleasure vessels beneath azure skies. To your right is the air-conditioned Great Room with plush furnishings and all media, including 60 flat-screen TV, stereo system, and large sliders which open onto a generous verandah that overlooks the pool, spa and onwards to crystalline turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry; an adjacent dining table provides the opportunity to dine within easy sight of the ocean view.
Departing the common space, to the bedroom pavilion next door, you will be welcomed to a gracious king Master Suite with romantic 4-poster bed placed so that the first thing you see when you awake will be the enchanting view that begins with the surrounding gardens and spills endlessly on to the ocean blue. Across the hall is a large bath with double carved stone vanities and couples shower. Below are two side by side kings that share a bath with shower with separate WC. All bedrooms are air-conditioned with individual climate controls, luxury bath amenities, and superior bed and bath linens.
Below, surrounded by a roomy tiled deck is the double-Lazy L shaped pool offset by a soaking spa tub for restful relaxation in dreamy reverie or beneath the stars in quiet conversation. A full outdoor wet bar is just beyond the built-in charcoal barbecue grill, with another full bath with shower for guest use.
This hideaway is convenient to the vibrant East End scene, including the Red Hook Complex (American Yacht Harbor), medical facilities (Red Hook Family Medical Group and Chelsea Drug Store), mail (Red Hook Mail Services) and plenty of dining, shopping and nightlife options. You'll also find area marinas and beaches a quick drive away..or take a day trip to the U.S. Virgin Isle of St. John on the car barge or the passenger ferry. It's easy to get to the British Virgin Islands as well, all from the Urman Victor Fredericks Marine Terminal, Red Hook.
