Stunning 5 Bedroom, 6.5 Bath, Pool, Ocean Views in exclusive Peter Bay!
Villa Coco de Mer, overlooking one of the most beautiful and dramatic ocean views in the world, is one of the Caribbean’s most magnificent private Villas. Designed in a Greco-Roman architectural style, Coco de Mer’s palatial qualities are accented with grand Doric columns and an amphitheater that leads to a romantic semicircular 50 ft pool. Located at the exclusive gated community of Peter Bay Estate, Coco de Mer is appointed in 5 star elegance and surrounded by the majesty of pristine St. John beaches and tropical panoramas. Coco de Mer is secluded, private, and tranquil, yet only minutes away from Cruz Bay restaurants and activities.
The Coco de Mer grounds consist of three structures . The Great House (left), a Guest Pavilion (right) , and a private Guest Cottage to the left of the Great House. The top level of the Great House includes an open living/dining area with a chef’s kitchen and breakfast bar. The backdrops to The Great Room are the spectacular bays of Cinnamon and Francis with the views all the way to Tortola, BVI. The lower level of the The Great House, also with beautiful ocean panoramas, are Bedrooms 3 and 4. The Guest Pavilion houses the Master Bedroom (upper level) and Bedroom 2 (lower level). A private detached Guest Cottage to the left of the Great House is Bedroom 5.
THE SETTING . Villa Coco De Mer is a spacious (approximately 7000 sq/ft), beautiful estate house that consists of three buildings; a 2-level great house, a 2-level guesthouse to the west of the great house, and a private 1-level guesthouse to the east. You enter from above and descend to a stone courtyard and the upper level of the great house, which contains the kitchen, living and dining rooms plus a powder room. French doors on the upper level open to a spacious covered deck that is framed by Doric columns. Covered stairs lead to 2 bedrooms and a full (6th) bath on the lower (pool) level of the great house.
A path leads through a small garden area to the semi-secluded 1-bedroom east guesthouse. Two more bedrooms with superb views are located in the west guesthouse at the edge of the pool. The large 50 foot pool is on the lower level and the 4-person hot tub is just below the pool in a romantic garden setting. A most distinctive architectural feature of this gorgeous home is the terraced area that descends from the upper level to the pool. This is actually a tiled amphitheater with a central mosaic that overlooks the Caribbean and 50 foot pool.

EXCLUSIVITY. First, begin with the private setting of Peter Bay, which is St. John’s finest address for grand, luxury villas. Then, design and build a gorgeous, one of a kind, stately and magnificent villa with truly beautiful, tranquil and unspoiled views of the north shore of St. John – this is Coco De Mer. Coco is one of the Peter Bay homes that has redefined the concept of a luxury rental villa on St John. The peaceful, private and exclusive Peter Bay location, and the overall commitment to a luxurious design and excellent fixtures, furnishings and equipment, makes Coco De Mer an exceptional rental villa that is certainly one of St. John’s most exclusive.
LIVING/DINING/KITCHEN. The living, dining and kitchen areas occupy the entire upper level of the great house. Tiled floors, vaulted beamed ceilings and rich hardwoods define this generous area. French doors open to a sizeable balcony that provides magnificent views and seems like an outdoor extension of the living area.
A SONOS® PLAY 5 audio system with HiFi wireless streaming is the centerpiece of the living room entertainment center which also includes satellite TV with surround sound and a video player. The SONOS Play 5 audio system streams wireless from a wide selection of music streaming services (Rhapsody, Pandora, Spotify, etc.) and global internet radio stations. The SONOS audio system is controlled by personal smart phones and tablets, and also plays the music libraries of personal mobile devices.
The interior dining table is a handcrafted mahogany table that seats 10 and there is additional exterior dining. The elegant and completely equipped kitchen is filled with rich mahogany cabinetry that is accented by ceramic counter tiles. The kitchen appliances and hardware is all high quality and includes a stainless steel gas grill, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker and dishwasher. A gas barbeque grill, washer/dryer and a fax and answering machine are also included.
BEDROOMS. All of Coco De Mer’s bedrooms have king beds and are air conditioned (one of the lower great house bedrooms has a set of twin beds that convert to a king), and all have French doors that open to views, decks or balconies. The bedrooms are all of approximate equal size and quality, although the west guesthouse bedrooms have the preferred balconies and views. All bedrooms have a satellite TV/VCR and a tiled bath and shower and all are attractively furnished and accessorized.
COCO DE MER SUMMARY. Coco de Mer has a dual personality that gives it a popular appeal. For those who need to relax in the sun and do nothing, the sunny, open decks, outdoor speakers, oversized pool and peaceful setting make for luxurious relaxation within a magnificent setting of tropical natural beauty. For the active lifestyle, St. John’s world-class beaches and hiking trails, and water sports activities – including scuba diving, kayaking, sailing, motor yachting, deep sea fishing, and USVI & BVI island excursions – offer all the adventure that hours in a day will allow. This is truly a magnet villa. It is so accommodating, luxurious and enjoyable that you have little reason or desire to leave the house – it holds you in place like a magnet. But St. John, with its hiking trails, reefs, beaches, boating and exploring, and the delightful shops, restaurants, people and atmosphere of Cruz Bay, give you plenty of reasons to leave your villa.
This gorgeous home was designed to accommodate guests in near equal luxury and comfort. Coco de Mer is a 5 bedroom home that gives 5 couples plenty of privacy and space, while also providing elegant and relaxing common areas for everyone to be together. With the amphitheater overlooking the pool and the gorgeous north shore views, this is also a home that is designed for, and highly recommended for functions such as weddings or parties.
Coco De Mer is beautifully and abundantly landscaped and the tropical landscaping and the upper tier location give Coco a sense of privacy and seclusion, yet the delights of Cruz Bay are only a 10-15 minute drive and the restaurants at the renown Caneel Bay Resort are an even closer, 5-10 minute drive – of course, depending on how often you stop to gaze at the truly spectacular and dramatic views. Coco de Mer is a 5 star villa highly recommended for families, couples, groups, business meetings and events, and weddings.
