C'est Bleu is located in the Virgin Grand Estates. The house faces Great Cruz Bay overlooking the Westin far below. The house is situated to give you a perfect sunset view in the evenings.
Let me begin by saying this is one BIG expansive villa!
The house consists of three buildings. Two of the bedroom suites are located above the Great Room, Dining Room and indoor kitchen. There is no access to the upstairs rooms from the downstairs living area which makes them very private. The third and fourth bedrooms are in a separate two story building on the south side of the property. The fifth bedroom suite was located on the second floor of the North building above the Outdoor Kitchen. Each suite had ice cold A/C with individual thermostats and huge bathrooms with large tiled walk-in showers.
The kitchen was nicely equipped with granite counters, tiled floors that flowed into the dining room and then on to the large great room. Air conditioninng was wonderful in those rooms as well and was very welcome! There is also a half bath off the great room as well.
The swimming pool and hot tub were located on the edge of a cliff that had the best views I have seen on the island with maybe the exception of some of the Ajax Peak or Bordeaux Mtn villas. The landscaping was fantastic with large palm trees and beautiful flowers throughout. Two fountains provided soothing tones in the evenings too.
The highlight of the house though was the huge Outdoor Kitchen that was located under the bedroom suite of the North building. It is a fully equipped kitchen with built-in Viking grill, full fridge, dishwasher, icemaker, blender and full cabinets of cooking accessories, plates, silverware. Everything that is found in the indoor kitchen was duplicated there. With the beautiful Schnell sconces and the robust ceiling fans, we made meals and memories that will last a lifetime. Meal preparation for our large group was not a chore but an event! Check out our pictures of it here: http://chill.smugmug.com/gallery/3198692#176300679
I would highly recommend this house for large groups.
Did I mention this is a BIG villa?
Five Equal Bedroom Suites with A/C
Expansive Grounds never feeling cramped
Large Pool and Good Hot Tub
Cons (And this is being picky)
Could have nicer furniture in Bedrooms
More Decorations on Walls to Feel More Homey and "Finished"
Refridgerators are barren upon arrival (Have to buy Ketchup, Mustard, Etc)
Curtains in Bedrooms are too thin letting in too much light and limits privacy in bedrooms above Great Room.
