This three bedroom, 3 bath masonry and stone home was designed by well-known architect Glen Speer to complement the spectacular and very private waterfront setting on Sabbat Point on St. John's beautiful east end. Salt Pond, one of US Virgin Islands National Park's most beautiful sandy beaches, is only a mile away, but you may find it very difficult to leave this fabulous villa. There is a deep level of relaxation reached when floating in the pool, gazing out at the nearby islands and watching hummingbirds dart among the flowers that makes it difficult to work up any desire to go anywhere. Descending down the gradual sloped beach path will bring guests to the rocky shoreline of Sabbat Point and the opportunity for some of the best snorkeling to be found on St. John.
The entrance to the main house at Maison Miele is through a large open portico which features a gas BBQ grill and patio table and chairs for outdoor dining. Passing through the signature entryway and sitting in the great room of the main house is like being on the bridge of a ship. You are surrounded by walls of windows looking out over the never ending expanses of the Caribbean Sea and when opened will allow the constant trade wind breezes to cool the house. As you sit on the comfortable sofa cushions that echo the shifting colors of the water below, you look towards Drunk Bay and Ram's Head on your right, straight ahead to LeDuc Island and several out islands of the British Virgin Islands outward to the eastern Caribbean Sea and to your left the east end of St. John, Flanigan Island and the big island of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. Sail and motorboats passing to and fro complete the picture and rainbows are not uncommon - be on the 'look out' for "doubles".
The kitchen has water views on three sides and if you can tear yourself away from gazing out the windows, you'll find everything from lobster pots to blenders plus beautifull stainless steel appliances and all of the necessary amenities for creating snacks to full meals. The Corian counters are spacious providing plenty of room to work and are framed by beautiful custom made mahogany cabinetry - all together making it a pretty nice place to 'slice and dice'. Then again, you are on vacation, and while secluded, Maison Miele is not isolated so if what you most like for dinner is 'reservations', there are several great dining (and shopping) options on St. John's east end that are only minutes away.
But the views don't stop in the great room/kitchen! There are two bedrooms at opposite ends of the house, (one with a king bed, one set up with either two twins or as a king), each air conditioned with full en suite baths. Both have stunning views of sea, sky, and islands. There is a den/office off the great room with a small desk and a comfortable futon that opens to a queen sized bed for an extra person or couple. Renting 3 bedrooms gives you access to the spacious, air conditioned guest cottage which is a home onto itself with a kitchen, full en suite bath, and king size bed that can also be made into two twin beds. It has its own deck with views towards Ram's Head, several of the British Islands and the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Please note that the guest cottage is never rented separately from the main house.
Maison Miele is located on a very private ocean-side lot and the configuration of the house and guest cottage on the property makes this St. John rental villa perfect for one, two or three couples, or for small families with children. Since this amazing vacation villa is all on one level with no stairs to navigate, it is handicap accessible. Experience Maison Miele -- stretch out on the hammock in the garden -- laze on a chaise in the sun by the pool with a cold one -- fire up the BBQ at the end of the day and enjoy an alfresco meal under the stars. When the sun sets, the night sky is inky black and the star fields are vibrant as there is absolutely no light pollution. Jasmine, night-blooming lilies and gardenias scent the evening air. If relaxation, privacy, and beauty is what you seek, Maison Miele may be just the place for you. Come and 'Dare to Live The Dream' at Mainson Miele on beautiful St. John!
