Apito – Barefoot elegance on St. John

Apito is a casually elegant home on the island of St. John located within the National Park boundaries. Recently completed and meticulously maintained, this home was built and furnished with the complete comfort and relaxation of guests in mind. Fully air conditioned, it is ecologically sensitive yet delightfully fun and upscale. Located high atop Mamey Peak at approximately 940′ above sea level, it is near the geographic center of the island and less than a five minute drive to the famous North Shore beaches. As you enter Apito though its exquisitely carved entry door, you’ll be greeted with extensive travertine tile work, rich mahogany and pear wood furnishings, quality finishes and oil rubbed bronze fixtures.

2 large bedrooms and fully tiled bath rooms, each with a king sized bed, pillow top mattresses and high thread count sheets insure a peaceful nights sleep. The very private pool and pool deck area offer spectacular views of Bordeaux mountain, Coral Bay, the East end of St. John and the British Virgin Islands of Norman and Peter. The Lanai (or covered porch), located off of the pool deck, offers respite from the sun and a comfortable couch to lounge, read or take a well deserved nap. The mountain breezes typically make this area many degrees cooler than the lower lying areas of Cruz and Coral Bay.

The kitchen has all of the modern conveniences. A full size dishwasher, energy efficient Liebherr refrigerator, microwave, 5-Burner, dual fuel stove and double oven and a garbage disposal (one of the few on St. John!), along with virtually every cooking utensil a gourmet cook could desire. Because we know how aggravating it is to buy every day items when you stay at a villa, Apito maintains a supply of sugar, flour, herbs, spices , and cooking oils along with dish towels, paper towels, trash bags, baggies, dish and clothes detergents, etc. so you DON’T have to spend hard earned vacation money on the simple necessities of everyday life.
