Earlier this week we announced our 2019 raffle, and I believe it is our best one yet. For just $25, you can win a stay at one of eight great places here on St. John. Our grand prize is a five-night stay for up to six people at Ardisia, a luxury villa located directly on the water in Great Cruz Bay. That’s right, for just $25, you have the chance of staying at a luxury villa on St. John. Pretty exciting if you ask me!
The best part of the raffle – and yes, we understand that winning a free stay on St. John is pretty great – is that we plan to support several great organizations here on St. John. We chose to support the following because they are less funded than some of the other big name organizations here on island. We also chose to support them because we really believe in what they do. We plan to support the following: Island Health and Wellness, Love City Community Network. Julius E. Sprauve School, St. John Christian Academy, Carolina Corral, Love City Pan Dragons, St. John Historical Society and C.O.R.E.
But now let’s talk about Ardisia. I promise you’re going to love it!
Ardisia is a brand new, five bedroom, luxury waterfront villa in Great Cruz Bay. The villa is complete with whole house air-conditioning, dual-band WIFI coverage, top-of-the-line furnishings, an infinity-edge pool, spectacular views and a private beach. In some cases, pictures speak louder than words. That’s certainly the case here. Check out these images:
Pretty amazing, right?
If this villa looks familiar to you, it’s because we also raffled it off last year. And that winner – Will Guza of Virginia – bought only two tickets, spending just $50. Pretty incredible! Oh and even more incredible is that we were bale to raise more than $100,000 last year! Not bad for a little blog in the Caribbean! 😉
Ardisia has five bedrooms and can accommodate up to 10 guests. Rates start at $10,500 a week and vary depending on number of people and season. It’s a great space for large families or couples looking to vacation together.
In addition to its beautiful features and great waterfront location, Ardisia is one of the few villas on St. John where guests can take a boat trip right from the villa. You may have to wade in the water a bit, but it sure beats an early morning drive into town to catch the boat at the dock!
So when you’re planning your next vacation, please keep Ardisia in mind. For those of you who’d like more information, please check out Ardisia’s website at www.ardisiastjohn.com
