Our not-so-little piece of St. John paradise accommodates 15 adults + kids
We have had so many comments from first-time guests over the years saying how they had no idea how beautiful and serene the layout is, that we decided to make a detailed set of floor plans to give you an idea of where things are.
Great Expectations was architectuallly-designed with our guests comfort and privacy in mind rather than as a private home only sometimes to be rented out to others! The floor plan allows guests to have lots of choices to gather together in one of the common spaces (e.g. Great Room, pool and BBQ patio area, hot tub and hammocks, basketball and tennis court) or have your own piece of quiet paradise with very private bedrooms and patios and quiet outdoor areas with hammocks and comfy chaise lounges. There are numerous ‘private’ spots to sit and enjoy a quiet bit of paradise.
Since the Great Room is separate from the bedrooms, people can prepare an early cup of coffee or stay up late and party in the Great Room without disturbing those sleeping in the bedrooms. The Great Room is furnished to entertain and includes audio hook-ups for playing your own music indoors and outside on the patio and pool areas.
The gourmet kitchen is stocked with spices, plenty of glassware and dishes for your use and, of course lots of pots and pans for all your cooking needs plus a 48″ stainless steel Sub-Zero refrigerator and Commercial Scottsman Icemaker which will keep up with the needs of the largest groups. Our dining table, picnic table (just outside the Great Room), foldaway table and chairs, and barstools provide lots of indoor and outdoor dining seating capacity.
The Main Villa has 4 equal air-conditioned Master bedrooms each furnished with a ‘California’ (extra long) King bed which can be converted into 2 Twin beds. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom with a double sink vanity and an indoor/outdoor shower. They also have spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea with outdoor patios on both the east and west sides. As many as 8 adults can be accommodated in these 4 Master bedrooms which are sufficiently large (20′ by 12′ interior plus bathroom and walk-in closet) so that porta-cribs for infants and a foldaway bed for a child can also be placed in any of these bedrooms. There are 2 connecting bedrooms in each of the 2 bedroom buildings so that young children can safely sleep in an adjacent room to their parents. Each of the bedrooms has a walk-in closet with a wall safe, ceiling fan, and is tastefully decorated with teak furniture, custom-made in Bali. Each bedroom has architecturally designed skylights, ceiling fans, transoms, sofit lighting, and a cypress cathedral ceiling.
