Mare Blu: Experience Sophisticated Elegance in Paradise - Cruz Bay Vacation Villa Rentals


Home Description

Mare Blu Villa is a amazing addition to St. John's beautiful landscape. 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 Suites 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!

Luxury retreat with no detail overlooked!

Mare Blu was everything we envisioned our luxury rental to be and even more. No detail has been overlooked. From wonderful linens and towels, to comfortable furniture and a perfectly stocked kitchen, even down to the outside lighting! Teri and Bernie did not miss any opportunity to make this home comfortable and inviting. They are absolutely a joy to work with and the concierge, Drew, continues that professionalism during your stay. The layout of the home gives everyone plenty of space to gather and yet, opportunity to relax in privacy if you choose. We had two families with 7 teens and college aged kids and never felt "on top of each other" or too much in the kids space. So many great and comfortable locations to relax and take in the sunrise and sunset or get some sun or shade. I cannot say enough great things about this home and can NOT wait to return.

Mare Blu is simply stunning and serene.

"Mare Blu provided a beautiful, serene setting for our recent 50th anniversary celebration with family. The manager met us promptly upon arrival and made us immediately feel at home. The villa was luxurious and so well-appointed that it would be difficult to want anything more. The large outdoor dining and indoor living areas created an atmosphere in which our family was able to enjoy memorable conversations and meals together without interruptions. And, the opportunity to enjoy a cup of early-morning coffee on the patio or to swim under the stars in a pool overlooking the ocean was priceless. The downside of this trip was that it was far too short. A week just wasn't long enough to fully experience the beautiful scenery and uncrowded beaches that St. John has to offer. Teri was wonderful to work with prior to, and during, our stay. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family, and for providing many helpful shopping and restaurant suggestions. We are already looking forward to our next stay.

Perfect place to stay for a dream vacation!!

Mare Blue was the perfect spot for us to vacation with friends and family -- absolutely stunning views of Rendezvous Bay in a quiet and convenient location. The residence was fantastic with all the amenities we could hope for: lovely modern home, gorgeous infinity pool, spacious private bedrooms and bathrooms, full kitchen and outdoor gas grill, 2 washer/dryers. Teri and Bernie were very hospitable and helpful throughout the whole experience, always available when we had questions, even when it was just a suggestion for a great restaurant! Will definitely return for the next trip to St. John and would absolutely recommend to anyone for a truly wonderful vacation experience.

Best vacation rental ever!!!!!

Our extended family (13 of us) were looking for a great place to celebrate my Father's 75th birthday and my wife was lucky enough to stumble across the Mare Blue website. The spectacular pictures on the web site convinced us that this would be a perfect location, but believe me that they can't come close to capturing the true beauty and magic of this wonderful villa. We had committed to rent the villa and the transaction was completed, but once the owner knew that the entire trip was to celebrate my father's birthday, she was so helpful and kind; she basically became our travel agent and helped make all the plans as simple as possible for us. We had such an unbelievable stay at the Mare Blue. The views are amazing, and the house is spectacular. We couldn't have asked for more. My children and my sister's children will forever remember our wonderful trip to St. John and we dream of a return to the Mare Blue. Thank you Teri & Bernie.
