Cocotier - Virgin Grand Estates
Cocotier is located in Virgin Grand Estates with a breathtaking view of Great Cruz Bay and the Westin below. Close to town and well paved roads lead you to the house in a very nice neighborhood of luxury homes. Steep driveway with ample turnaround area for one car. Two can also use it.
The villa is made up of three buildings, the main house containing the kitchen, Great Room and half bath. Each guest wing contains two bedrooms.
The main house is very open with the kitchen flowing into the dining room and Great Room very well. Views from the main house are exceptional. The kitchen is very well equipped with great appliances and granite counters. There is seating on the opposite side of the counter with high back chairs that we used a lot. Thankfully, the cupboards were well stocked with spices, hot sauces, left over liquor and most of the necessities of cooking. The fridge also had a stock of condiments.
The Great Room has great furniture and view over to Great Cruz Bay to St. Thomas. Satellite TV, stereo and everything to keep you comfy is there. Air condioning keeps the Great Room cool even with the Westward facing villa.
All the bedrooms are very equal with full baths and ample clothes storage. A/C worked well in all the bedrooms.
The pool area is awesome. Hot tub sits close to the pool so when you are cold at night in the pool, you can slip over to the hot tub in a few steps. I like that feature in a villa. The view from the pool is stunning. I often found myself chest deep in water just staring out over the ledge. A perfect place to watch the glorious sunsets that this house is perfectly positioned for.
Destination St. John manages the villa and that is a big plus! We had a power failure and within minutes my cell phone rang and they gave me the rundown of the problem. They touched base continuously during the outage and you could tell they really cared about our being comfortable. The power was out for a day and a half and they moved us to another wonderful villa that was every bit as equal as this great house! Big kudos to the folks at DSJ, they went above and beyond what was necessary as a management company!
Great villa in a great neighborhood. Main house just works, everyone hung out there. Folks in the kitchen were never left out of the fun. Views are awesome, management was awesome. The pictures of this villa on DSJ's website do not come close to doing this house justice. It is much nicer in person!
