Villa Gardenia combines old world charm with the best modern life has to offer! Just a quick drive from world-renowned Magens Bay Beach, this luscious 3-bedroom villa overlooks the peacefully quiet Mandahl Bay. Impeccable furnishings and precise landscaping create visual delights in both the interior and exterior. A garden holds a bubbling fountain and koi pond; a covered lanai will become the spot from which you will gaze outwards or inwards in dreamy repose.
Youll be ushered through a stone archway to within the walls of Villa Gardenia - an open air atrium from which youll enter the Great Room. Air-conditioned and gracious, this common space contains a place for gathering for conversation or to enjoy the flat-screen TV with Blu-Ray DVD player or the Bose sound system; the sit-down dining area is adjacent, as is a well-equipped gourmet kitchen. French doors to one side allow for ambient light and a view to tropical gardens.
Whether you desire a four-course masterpiece or simpler fare, Villa Gardenia's exceptional kitchen will provide all the space and implements you need to please one and all! This is truly a social kitchen, with marble counter tops along 3 sides (one of these sides providing a spot for taste-testing or friendly chat, with 6 barstools). At its center is a 5-burner gas range, along with 2 ovens and microwave and an array of implements and utensils for the most discriminating gourmet.
The powder room is nearby; one corner serves as a home office for those need to remain engaged with the outside world. It contains a fax, laptop and high speed internet service along with Wi-Fi for all to share. The laundry room is separate and just off the kitchen, and contains a wine cooler. Screen doors open to the serene walled patio; local blooms and foliage offer quiet along with a custom bench with cushions, wicker seats, a gas grill and an outdoor dining table for 8.
This villa is fully air-conditioned and goes beyond the comforts of home! Three bedroom/bath suites are off the Great Room. The king master suite features a Select Comfort Sleep Number bed and is paired with a bathroom of luxurious marble, raised tub, and roomy shower (plus W.C.); this bedroom also has its own cedar-lined walk-in closet and doors that open onto the covered terrace. Bedrooms 2 and 3 (a queen + sofa bed and king, respectively) access the terrace via a hallway. The queen bedroom has a marble bath with glass-enclosed shower; the king bedroom's bathroom is all marble as well.
From the Great Room, descend a few stairs to the tiled pool and hot tub, as you take in the ocean view which contains St. John USVI to your right, and the islets of Hans Lollick, Little Tobago, Just Van Dyke and Tortola work on your tan and your daydreams as the Caribbean sunshine works its magic! Make the best of the outdoors with the outdoor bar above the sun deck, with its own built-in gas grill and nearby 8-top dining table.
Villa Gardenia is surrounded by a 6-foot high concrete wall, situated in a cul-de-sac in a peaceful residential area, making it a favorite of families, couples and professionals seeking a most exceptional island escapade! Whether you plan to visit nearby Magens Bay or dine out at area restaurants (such as the Grille at nearby Mahogany Run Golf Course); or simply stay in to regroup, refresh and revive, Villa Gardenia will thoroughly enchant you!
