On The Market: Listen to the Sound of the Surf at Rhapsody



The water views from the beach-front villa Rhapsody are sure to enthrall, above. The open modern kitchen and living room, below.

A truly spectacular Caribbean estate, Rhapsody will have you singing this villa’s praises from your first glimpse of its expansive infinity edge pool.
Located just 50 feet from the sea on Contant Point, this exquisite five bedroom, six bath home is for sale for $5.95 million, explained Islandia Real Estate broker/owner Merry Nash.

“Since the home is only 50 feet from the water, you can hear the sound of surf from every room,” said Nash. “The villa is completely air conditioned and offers lots of parking as well as a large garage.”

Located on a full half-acre waterfront lot, it is the commanding view which will enthrall you at Rhapsody. It will surely be difficult to pull yourself away from the 16-foot-by-32-foot infinity pool or expansive deck. Soak up the sun from a pool-side lounge chair or enjoy sundowners while watching the sky fill with fiery colors in the four-person hot tub.

A shaded deck area offers an incredible outside living space and beckons as the spot to watch yachts cruising by and take in those tropical sunsets.
The great house and several pods surround the pool and deck area and boast private balconies. Each of the bedrooms is en suite and two of the master suites also include private sitting areas.

The modern kitchen has granite counter tops, hardwood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances while the great room includes beautiful native stone walls, oversized windows and a unique masonry construction, explained Nash.

“There are lots of stone walls and a distinctive ‘show through’ plaster finish on some exterior walls which gives the look of an aged, Danish Caribbean villa or fort,” said the Islandia Real Estate owner/broker.

A popular high-end short term rental, Rhapsody accommodates up to 10 adults and four children, while maintaining the feel of a private get-away.
Located just north of the entrance to Great Cruz Bay harbor on Contant Point, the home is also only a short drive to the dining and shopping of Cruz Bay and not far from the white sand beaches of North Shore Road.

“Rhapsody is one of the top high-end rentals on St. John,” said Nash. “It’s located at the end of a road which means it is extremely private and quiet. But it’s on Contant Point, so it’s really close to town too.”

While Rhapsody offers the privacy of a true Shangri-la, the home is conveniently located just a five minute drive to restaurants and shops. But with so much right at Rhapsody — how about six flat screen TVs, an iPod docking system, wireless internet and outdoor speaker system — you might not be inclined to go anywhere.
