Kismet is located on the summit of Maria’s Bluff, offering breathtaking 260º views of sunrise and sunset, and encompassing vistas of Chocolate Hole, Great Cruz Bay and St. Thomas. Kismet is built as three fully air-conditioned pavilions, offering five bedroom/bath suites in two pavilions, and the great room pavilion with separate living and dining areas, a movie theatre and a gourmet kitchen. All three pavilions open into a tiled courtyard with a sparkling pool and hot tub enjoying magnificent views of St. Thomas in the blue distance. Take a stroll off the courtyard into a garden planted with exotic date palms, majestic royal palms, tropical flowers and fruits with small private seating areas for quiet moments. Located above the master bedroom pavilion via a staircase, the breezy sunroom offers spectacular long-distance views of the pool courtyard and miles beyond to the horizon through its open arches. Seating banquettes within this scenic aerie are strewn with colorful, plush cushions from which to enjoy sunsets and cocktails.
The master bedroom pavilion features a sitting room, bedroom and bath with a steam shower and bathtub. Two bedrooms are situated in Kismet’s second poolside pavilion with a few stairs leading down to a second breezy patio set with a Moroccan fountain; two more bedroom/bath suites and an air-conditioned billiard room with two single daybeds, wet bar and full bath adjoin. The screening room, perhaps the only one on St. John, features a 50-inch plasma screen and a lavish and varied collection of movies on laser discs, DVDs and videos. Stunning custom woodwork throughout this incredible villa adds to Kismet’s privileged aura.
