Overlooking Rendezvous Bay , this colorful, 10,000 sq. ft. villa mirrors the dramatic hues of the Caribbean scenery. Mare Blu is considered to be one of the most luxurious high-style, relaxing and private villas on the island of St. John. After 30 years of island hopping, Mare Blu owners, Teri and Bernie Ackerman, found no match for the appeal of the friendly and culturally diverse community of St. John, nor for the beauty of its tropical forests, national parks and secluded sandy beaches. St. John is believed by many to be the most beautiful of the USVIs, if not the most beautiful island in all of the Caribbean. The vacation home of their dreams was built on a hill above the turquoise waters of Rendezvous Bay, looking south, with scenic views that stretch from the east end of St. John to St. Croix. The Ultimate in Style and Luxury: Mare Blu's great floor plan, superb design, lighting, and finishes distinguish this spectacular villa overlooking Rendezvous Bay. Built in four spacious pavilions linked together by generous outdoor living spaces, the sparking pool and tropical gardens, Mare Blue offers full air conditioning throughout the villa. Its excellent floor plan is designed so that all of the home's living space and pool is on one level. Six large bedroom/bath suites, a stunning indoor gourmet kitchen flanked by an outdoor kitchen dining and sitting area, and a beautifully-decorated Great Room and loggia are just a start at Mare Blu. 6 Bedroom Suite for the Ultimate in Privacy: Mare Blu has six large bedroom/bathroom master suites, two located at pool level, three on the garden level and one in the pavilion above the grand veranda. All bedroom suites are beautifully furnished, air conditioned hideaways that take full advantage of their picturesque location. All the suites have flat screen televisions with cable. Bathrooms have double vanities, showers, and are tiled in grey granite from floor to ceiling. The Orange suite features an alfresco shower, Yellow a semi-alfresco shower and the Pink suite also offers a bathtub. Incredible & Well Appointed Living & DIning Areas: All of the villa's living space is on the main level of the pavilion. The Great Room, with two seating areas, provides a 55' HDTV, DVD, movies, games & game table. Adjacent, the gourmet kitchen leaves nothing to be desired, even by the most discerning of gourmet cooks. Well stocked with a large variety of glassware, stemware, dinnerware & cookware, the kitchen is equipped to feed the masses with its top of the line stainless steel appliances, including a 3-door refrigerator/freezer, standard oven, microwave/convection oven and two dishwashers. Sliding glass pocket doors lead from the indoor kitchen to its outdoor kitchen providing easy service to the alfresco dining room & includes a professional gas grill, 2nd oven, icemaker & generous countertop space. The dining room joins the covered outdoor living room resulting in one expansive outdoor living space with awesome ocean views. With an abundance of outdoor seating and lounging furniture this space is the true heart of the villa! Beds: 4 King Beds, 2 Queen Beds, 4 Twin BedsMore

About the neighbourhood
Mare Blu Villa is a striking addition to St. John's beautiful landscape. From a hillside on the exclusive Rendezvous Bay overlooking the majestic south shore, this colorful villa mirrors the dramatic hues of the Caribbean scenery that inspired it.
