Botany Bay, West End, St. Thomas
7 Bedroom(s), 7 Bath(s)
Siren's Song is a 7-bedroom, 7-bath luxury villa with pool, located on Botany Bay lot 1-2A, which is 2.5+ acres of waterfront land with 700+/- ft of shoreline. Lot 1-2A has mature plantings, coconut palms and is the penultimate westernmost lot on St Thomas. From its waterfront location, high on the cliffs, Sirenís Song provides dazzling sunsets, as well as glorious, long-distance sea and ocean views with several neighboring islands and cays. On a clear day you can see both Puerto Rico to the West and St. Croix to the South. The sky on clear nights is awesome, because there is no light pollution.
It's like being on a private island without the inconveniences.
A short stroll from Sirenís Song takes you to Mermaid's Chair, the sand bar separating the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean Sea and linking The Preserve at Botany Bay to a small island to the west, Little St. Thomas, owned by the Nature Conservancy.
Siren's Song can be seen on the far right in the above photo. Only one other villa shares this exquisite setting. The waterfront area is comprised of rocks, pebbles, sand and shells, and is always changing depending on the waves and the winds. Mermaid's Chair always has a treasure trove of sea shells. The waters around Little St. Thomas are alive with undisturbed corals and tropical fish that provide some of the best snorkeling and diving opportunities in the Virgin Islands.
Sirenís Song has 7 bedrooms, 5 of which have stunning sea and island views from their own private balconies. The other 2 bedrooms are accessed from a separate entrance. There are 6 shower baths and 2 half baths. The Great Room has a beautiful Italian ceramic tiled floor, scattered rugs and cypress clad ceiling. The Great Room encompasses the kitchen, dining area, sitting area, living area, powder room and staircase to the upper level, has maximum dimensions of 26 ft by 51 ft. All of Sirenís Songís bedrooms and upper-level multi function room are air-conditioned. The whole villa is also cooled by south-easterly tradewinds which keep you cool and comfortable most of the year.
A six-foot high terra cotta Chinese Emperor (weighing over 500 lbs and brought to St. Thomas from Xian in China) greets you as you enter Sirenís Songís foyer.
A waterfall and water gardens welcome you into luxurious Siren's Song. Guppies swim in the water garden and keep Siren's Song virtually mosquito free. The water garden is surrounded by the thirty-foot inner balcony on the landing of the upper level with high cypress clad cathedral ceiling above.
To the right is the gourmet kitchen with all appliances, and to the left is a powder room and storage area.
Ahead of the foyer is a sitting area with six comfortable rocking chairs surrounding a coffee table and gaze through a wide arched covered opening with ornamental screened doors.
Steps lead down from Siren Song's main level to the pool level where they curve outwards. This is classic Caribbean design known as "welcoming arms". There is a planter in front of the infinity-edge swimming pool.
On either side of the pool are green lawns and colorful plantings. Beyond the pool is the lower level lawn and beyond that is the blue Caribbean. To the left of the sitting area is the living area, and to the right of the sitting area is the indoor dining area.
Five fountains cascade from a planter into the infinity edge pool. The pool is plastered and has wide steps on either side that double up as seats -- ideal for easy entry, sitting, or lazing with a drink.
Mature trees provide shade from the mid day and afternoon sun.
The maximum dimensions of the pool are 27ft by 13ft -- it has a constant depth of about 4.5 ft.
Siren's Song indoor dining area is to the right of the sitting area on the main level. It has lovely views of the Caribbean Sea, Atlantic and multiple outlaying cays and islands. Doors open out onto a covered twenty-foot balcony with chairs to enjoy the view. A twelve-foot Whim museum reproduction mahogany-stained teak table with matching chairs upholstered with Sanderson fabric seats twelve people comfortably.
Five people can also sit at the breakfast bar that separates the dining area from the kitchen.
Doors lead out from Siren's Song dining area onto the terrace with gas grill, for alfresco dining under the stars. The paved terrace has two tables with sun umbrellas -- each table can seat six people comfortably. Being so close to the kitchen, the terrace is great for meals and snacks at any time. Enjoy the views.
The well-equipped gourmet kitchen with all appliances is separated from the indoor dining area by a breakfast bar that can seat five comfortably.
The kitchen has maple cabinets, with Corian counter tops and an integrated Corian sink. There are two refrigerators, stove, dishwasher, microwave and a full range of appliances. Plenty of space for everyone, even with a large group.
On the right side of the foyer, an archway leads to the kitchen and through the kitchen. Glass doors lead out to the paved terrace with a Weber gas grill, tables and chairs for alfresco cooking and dining.
The kitchen is open to the living and dining areas so the chef can socialize while creating fabulous meals.
To the east of the foyer on the main level there is a powder room and the living area, set with four large slip-covered comfortable sofas and media center. The living area has its own twenty-foot balcony with outdoor chairs to enjoy the sea views.
An ornamental covered arch looks out onto the stairs leading to the pool level below.
Siren Song's living area has a large back projection TV, a library of DVD movies, games for family fun, and a multi-changer CD player with a library of CDs.
To the left of the foyer, a stylishly-curved, wide staircase leads from the living area on the main level to the upper level.
There are four air-conditioned bedroom suites on the upper level. Each upper level bedroom has its own walk-out balcony with comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy the stunning sea and island views. Each bedroom has a romantic king four-poster bed, which is Whim museum reproduction mahogany-stained teak. An archway in each bedroom opens up to twin vanities with a granite counter top. On one side there is a shower with glorious sea views, and on the other side there is an enclosed toilet.
To the left of the living area on the main level, an archway leads to two king and one twin air-conditioned bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each bathroom has a single vanity with granite counter top. One of the king suites has a romantic four-poster bed (Whim museum reproduction mahogany-stained teak) and its own private, step-out balcony with comfortable chairs to enjoy the views of the Caribbean Sea and outlaying cays. This suite is adjoined by a smaller air-conditioned bedroom with two twin beds, which shares the bathroom. This smaller bedroom also connects to the third air-conditioned king suite, which has its own separate entrance.
The upper level bedrooms and balconies have glorious sea and island views. The upper level north side inner landing of Siren's Song leads out to a shaded balcony with forest views. The main level has multiple balconies -- off one bedroom, the living area and the dining area. All balconies have stunning sea and island views. All external balconies are tiled with Italian ceramic tiles and have comfortable chairs for resting in the breeze or curling up with a good book.
A five-minute stroll from Siren's Song takes you to the sand bar, known as Mermaid's Chair, between The Preserve at Botany Bay and Little St Thomas. It separates the Caribbean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean. Sand, shells and pebbles are constantly changing on the sand bar depending on waves, winds and currents.
To the left of the steps leading down to Mermaid's Chair, on the adjacent lot, there are kayaks, beach furniture and beach toys. There is a large sail between the rocks for shade.
The virtually-undisturbed reefs are alive with different varieties of corals and different species of tropical fish. The snorkeling is wonderful, with beautiful, clear water and undisturbed coral. The Caribbean Sea side has "canyons" of corals -- the Atlantic side has shallow water and the corals have formed "gardens". Marine biologists from UVI have told us that the Elk Horn coral is the healthiest in Virgin Island waters.
The gate house at the entrance to The Preserve at Botany Bay is manned 24/7 and also has an electronic gate for the convenience of residents. Siren's Song is just over a mile from this gate house.
