Villas that are up high with those views and private

It's been awhile sine we have been to STJ and we stayed at Sol Inclination the last time and loved it. We're looking to stay in 2/2020. The only reason why I'm looking at other options is because Sol only had the two master bedrooms in the main house and two smaller bedrooms in the guest house separate from the main house. We are looking for a villa up high like Sol, with the breezes and the views, but with 4 bedrooms in the main house. We don't mind the steep driveways, or stairs, we're all adults, and it would be nice to have some cover to sit under outside, or a screened porch, both of which Sol did not have. I've looked at "On a Clear Day" and also "Andara" on the east end...and I've used google earth to try and see if they are up high, but it's hard to tell. I'd appreciate any further info or other recommendations...TIA!!

We own Sapphire Sunrise. Please check out our website at sapphiresunrise.com
I think it would be perfect for you and yes it's up high.

Hello, I have stayed at On a Clear Day four (I think?) times. It is high up over Francis Bay and completely private. It's not as high up as Sol Inclination, but you have sweeping views of Francis Bay. You can see the sun set from the house in the summer. The four bedrooms are all equal size with en suite baths (equal again), all with interior access--three upstairs, one on the main level. Three have the Francis Bay view and one has a view over to Tortola. The bedrooms and the gym have AC but the main great room area is cooled by a "big ass fan" (really, that is the brand name of the fan, and it works wonderfully). The owners are lovely and supporters of the Friends of the Park. Let's see if I can remember how to post pictures here because it's been a while...day time view from the pool:

Ha! Liamsaunt, the only reason I know about “On a Clear Day” is because of your review. I always listen to your advice when it comes to restaurants too. I hope you and yours are doing well and enjoying life. And thank you to the other responders as well, your input is much appreciated. My family is looking so forward to visiting STJ again. :D

I kind of wondered if you had seen my prior inputs on the house :D . We stayed there with family in 2017 too but I never did a trip report for our last visit because the storms hit a few weeks after we left. John and I are heading back for the first time since the storms in three weeks. It’s just the two of us, so we rented a smaller villa. Really looking forward to it!

Nice to have you back liamsaunt. We are returning in June to celebrate our 40th (year of marriage, not trip to STJ) and this will be our first time back since summer of 2017. Our favorite villa is still damaged and not available but looking forward to the return and continue helping any way we can.
Especially looking forward to your TR this time. They are always interesting but it will be more so getting your take on the island after the storms. Won't change our desire to return or enjoyment upon arrival but getting another viewpoint/comment never hurts.
