Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay: Sopra Mare (Above The Sea) is a stunning 1,600 sq. ft. Cliffside villa, built in 2010 on solid native rock set atop Maria Bluff in the most exclusive location in Chocolate Hole with crashing surf below. This villa offers gated privacy with a one mile level walking circuit on paved roads while you sip your morning coffee and watch iguana’s cross your path. The villa is continually cooled by a slight gentle breeze which generally assures no biting insects. Nana type doors offer expansive full ocean views from the large master and accompanying ensuite bath. Ceiling fans in all rooms and full individual frosty air conditioning in each bedroom. Laze away in the pool on colorful rafts and turn on the pool lite show when the sun goes down – If it’s the right time use the villa binoculars and watch the Rolex Sailing Cup from the balconies with a cool beverage or dolphins, turtles and the occasional whale. Sopra Mare has everything you would expect from an island home; convenience, elegance and comfort. .Other features include full laundry, digital cable, two connections for your iPod or MP3 player, wireless high-speed Internet. Bose speaker system for Bluetooth with your laptop or phone and a new 42″ flat screen TV. When you put your head down for the night you’ll experience the luxury of Ritz Carlton Pacific Coast king size pillows and heavenly bedding. Sweet dreams! We want you to enjoy the full villa experience – therefore; if just two of you, unlike other villas the second bedroom is NEVER locked off from your access. We continually upgrade all aspects of the villa to maintain the highest caliber demand and expected by our guests. My Villa Manager – will greet you dockside. Then escort you to your vehicle and your new “second home” where you’ll find a complete meal and wine awaiting. No need to shop the first night! Less than five minutes to town of Cruz Bay which offers excellent jazz at several locations on Saturday and Sunday including the famous Beach Bar – partial setting for my first book about St. John ‘Keep Left.’ Shopping and night life abound in Cruz Bay. NOTE: If you’re considering Sopra Mare make reservations six to twelve months prior to your vacation dates. WE RENT VERY FAST.
