Splendore 11/01/01
Reviewers Rating: Excellent
Splendore is a magnificent villa located on Maria Bluff. The villa's deck and pool area face directly south, allowing for magnificent views of the ocean and to St. Thomas. There are 2 bedrooms, one which opens directly to the pool and deck, the other having its own private deck.

Furnishings are very nice. There is a large kitchen/dining/living room area central to the villa, with the bedrooms located on opposite ends of the main living area. There is a washer and dryer. The bedrooms both have AC units. Due to the garden shower design and high ceilings, the AC can only lower the bedroom temperature by 5 degrees or so. That was plenty for us. We did not even use the AC several nights because there was sufficient breeze to make sleeping comfortable.

The refrigerator is loaded with all kinds of condiments, salad dressings, sauces, etc. Check here before buying more things at the market. The pantry had over 1 dozen bottles of partially consumed liquor left from previous occupants. Plenty of spices also. There are 3 coolers to choose from. Plenty of towels to bring to the beach. Good stereo system ( CD and tape player). Plenty of personal items are stored below the sinks in each bathroom. Items we saw included rubbing alcohol, band-aids, tissues, hair dryer, contact lens solution, and bug spray.

There is a telephone in each bedroom, in addition to a phone in the kitchen and loft.

There is exceptional privacy, enough to allow clothing-optional sunbathing. There are plenty of other villas around, but you can only see the roofs of those below.

The hot tub will get plenty hot if you run the motor in advance. There is a nice little waterfall from the hot tub into the pool. You can see the ocean right from your bed. At 6AM one morning, we saw a big cruise ship go right past.

It takes only 5 minutes to drive to Cruz Bay.

There are 4 sets of sliding doors (5 if you count the front doors)with screens in the main living area, allowing plenty of airflow through the villa, especially with the front doors open. The pictures as shown on are a dead-on representation of the villa. We loved our stay at Splendore. Apparently everyone else did too, as the guest registry books left on the counter were filled with notes from people who have stayed there previously. This villa is rented extensively, so book early. Enjoy your stay, we sure did!!
