We recently rented Esprit Villa from Catered To. The West Indian style villa is located way up on Bordeaux Mountain with fantastic views overlooking Coral Bay and the BVI. The villa is a little older, but clean, charming and nicely decorated. We enjoyed constant breezes all but the last night and never had the need to use the AC in the bedrooms. There are screens on all the windows and a sliding screen on the back door.
The villa has 3 levels with beautiful natural slate flooring throughout. LR, DR and kitchen (open floor plan) on the top level with a covered deck overlooking Coral Bay and the BVI. This level also has a ½ bath and washer and dryer. The kitchen is small, but functional. Ideal for one person cooking, a little tight for two. There is a small alcove/office area. Villa has wi-fi/internet, but was on island time. Second level has 2 bedrooms which share a covered deck with a porch swing. One bedroom has a nice wooden four poster king bed with bathroom. The other bedroom has 2 twins, which could have been made into a king. It also had its own bath.
The lower level has a very small bedroom with double bed and ½ bath. It was fine for our 22 year old daughter. The pool is also located on this level. Pool was cool and refreshing after long days snorkeling and hiking. FYI, in the afternoon, the pool is shaded.
Our family loved Esprit. There is some driving involved to get to Cruz Bay and Coral Bay, but that's all part of the STJ adventure. Catered To was great to deal with and always responded quickly to e-mails. They were there promptly at car barge to meet us and take us to Esprit. Owners left a nice, embroidered canvas beach bag as a gift, which we used everyday and it will always remind us of our great visit to STJ and Esprit.
