n late 2014 all of Casa Del Sol’s doors and windows were retrofitted with new mahogany screens. Because Casa del Sol has mostly arched doors and windows the new screens had to be custom built and expertly installed. Needless to say, the new screens look gorgeous and perform flawlessly. If you like an open door/window breeze without the annoying buzz of no-see-ums and other insects, this villa will now deliver.
Casa Del Sol is a gorgeous plantation style home that consists of a majestic 2-level main house that is flanked on both sides by a 2-level bedroom tower. The main house and the bedroom towers are connected by tiled decks and courtyards. The building materials and the design are traditional Caribbean, with native stone and antique brick, hand rubbed mahogany doors and windows, terra cotta tiled floors and beamed cathedral ceilings throughout. You park above the villa and descend tiled stairs to the upper level which houses the great room, two upper level bedrooms and courtyards, decks and balconies. The great room contains the interior living, and dining, areas, plus the kitchen. To the right and left of the great room, separated by tiled courtyards, are the upper level bedrooms and baths, each with a private balcony. A covered deck also extends off the great room. Two sets of exterior tiled stairs lead down to the lower level bedrooms/baths that each include a private covered deck. The pool, wet bar, a fifth full bath and a covered deck and sun decks are also located on the lower level.
About The Area
Casa Del Sol is located on the top row of villas in the exclusive neighborhood of Klein Bay. There are about fifteen upscale villas in Klein Bay which is a snug cove that is part of Rendezvous Bay, a larger Bay on St. John’s Caribbean coast. Only about half of the lots in Klein Bay have been developed, and those lots include exceptional 4+ bedroom villas like Serenata De La Playa and Monte Bay. Limited development of this area insures its unique beauty, privacy and peacefulness. Ditliff Point is the peninsula that curves south into the Caribbean and protects two beaches in Klein Bay that provide swimming and snorkeling close to home among turquoise waters dotted with brightly colored fish, sea fans and other sea life. A 5-15 minute swim or snorkel takes you to the little used white sand beach on Ditliff Point, or you can swim and snorkel at the tranquil pebble beach directly below you in Klein Bay. The restaurants and nightlife of Cruz Bay are a 10 minute drive on paved roads.
Casa del Sol is perfect for couples and families traveling with older children.
