Looking to vacation on St. John anytime soon? Perhaps you’d live to visit with a group of friends or family, and are looking for a spacious villa with stunning views? Or maybe you’d simply like to check out one of St. John’s amazing homes? Well then look no further than Mare Blu…

Overlooking Rendezvous Bay, this colorful 10,000 square foot villa 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 our tropical forests, national parks and secluded sandy beaches. 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.

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.

Bathrooms have double vanities, showers, and are tiled in grey granite from floor to ceiling.

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 and cookware, the kitchen is equipped to feed the masses with its top of the line stainless steel appliances, including a three-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, second 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!
