Description

SEACLUSION - AJAX PEAK

We are happy to report SEAclusion suffered no major hurricane damage during Irma or Maria and is OPEN for the 2018 season! SEAclusion- St. John was renovated in 2014 and offers sweeping sunset to sunrise ocean views, 2 King Master bedrooms with en suite baths, full house a/c and wifi, plus two additional great rooms with optional sofa sleeper for a 5th and/or 6th guest.

Sitting majestically 1000 feet atop of Ajax Peak with gated security access on all paved road/driveway, SEAclusion is less than a 20 minute drive from Cruz Bay along all paved roads, and only a short drive from Coral Bay. Less than 5 minutes from the house are the white sand beaches of Maho Bay and its sister beaches. Since SEAclusion is on the ridge top we enjoy views to both East and West Horizons from Coral Bay to beyond Norman Island and then along the North Shore of St. John and the outer cays to the lights of St. Thomas in the distance.

SEAclusion offers sweeping sunset to sunrise ocean views, 2 King Master bedrooms with en suite baths, full house a/c and wifi, plus two additional great rooms with optional sofa sleeper for a 5th and/or 6th guest.

Designed in the Traditional West Indian Great House style, SEAclusion has wonderful architectural details like the sweeping, stone stairway entrance, arched windows and wooden shutters, as well as ballast brick and stone wall detailing. Two levels, accessed by the handmade custom hardwood inside stairway, each with master suite to provide a maximum of privacy for couples or two families. As you enter the villa the great room is to your right through the expansive, stone arch and offers comfortable new furniture to lounge and enjoy the panoramic views. Two 12 foot sliding doors have been recently installed, bringing in the views of Coral Bay, the north shore, and all the way to St. Thomas. Directly ahead is the newly remodeled, well equipped kitchen with TV, hardwood cabinets, and granite countertops. The kitchen provides an indoor dining area with optional bar seating overlooking Coral Bay Harbor. Or dine outdoors off the deck to enjoy the sunset over St. Thomas. You can also gather for pool side dining complete with gas grill to take in that amazing view all the way out to East End, Norman Island and beyond! SEAclusion St. John has decks that wrap entirely around the house so you can adjust your location to take full advantage of the varying sunlight and views. Just delivered the first week in November are comfy outdoor chairs, settee, and chaise lounges for the deck spaces.

Each of the king master suites has a wonderful mix of antique and custom furnishings, a/c, king bed, spacious walk-in closets and en suite bath. Both suites enjoy similar views over Coral Bay and beyond, while the lower suite enjoys a covered veranda with quick access to the pool. The lower level family room has desk, satellite TV, and sofa sleeper with memory foam padding. The villa sleeps 4 comfortably, but additional space for up to two more guests can be provided here with the queen sofa sleeper. The pool deck is spacious with lounge chairs, dining area, lush garden areas and that incredible view to Coral Bay and beyond - complete with in ground, concrete 24' x 12' x 4.5' deep swimming pool.

Last but by no means least, is the roof-top terrace with large built-in bench, accessed by custom indoor, hardwood ladder; the panoramic views here are truly magnificent!

SEAclusion's central island location is ideal for travelers who truly want to experience all St. John has to offer. From the excitement of Cruz Bay, the beautiful beaches of the North Shore, numerous hiking trails, awesome snorkeling sites, to the private and pristine beaches of the southeast and the charm of Coral Bay -- SEAclusion provides fast and easy access to all as well as a private and beautiful retreat to call home at the end of the day.

*Please note, at this time the villa has no phone lines yet. However, Dish TV & WIFI are hooked up and ready to go!

Wonderful House and Location

This is probably our 7th or 8th stay at this house over the past decade. We had been renting it from the original owner who built the house, and we were thrilled when the new owners continued renting out this paradise on the island. The house is well appointed, the views are truly incredible (you can see sunrise and sunset), and the owners and caretakers are very responsive.

Now This is a Beautiful Place to Stay.....

Debbie and I along with friends of ours from the Twin Cities stayed at SEAclusion the last week of January, 2019. Our timing was perfect as a Polar Vortex brought teeth chattering sub-zero cold and snow to the Great Lakes region while we were all enjoying the panoramic views from the wrap-around decks of the villa. Where does one begin to describe all the great aspects of SEAclusion? The location is perfect for those who enjoy the quiet side of St John high above Coral Bay on Ajax Peak. Watching the sun rise over the East End and set over St. Thomas always made us pause and enjoy the natural beauty of the setting. The quality of the villa's construction was fabulous with attention to detail everywhere one looked. The furnishings were all well thought out to make every room in the villa a place to relax and enjoy. And of course, the state-side property owners and on-site property management were all extraordinary from the beginning of our trip planning until the very end of our stay. Excellent communications throughout which made our stay at SEAclusion so enjoyable.

Heaven On Earth!

My husband and I, along with several different family members, have been vacationing on St. John since we discovered this beautiful island over 20 years ago. In all of our years here, we have never stayed in the same villa twice.....that is, until now, and our wonderful SEAclusion experience! Between the time we made our reservation and our arrival date, STJ was hit with two devastating storms. Over the course of the storm and for the months that followed, owner Michele kept us informed of the damage and progress in 'putting the island back together again'. Thankfully, their villa, built like a fortress, made it through the storm with only minor damage to the decking and foliage.....we fully understood how and why it made it through two Category 5 storms once we arrived.....it is as solid as could be! This communication was vital as our five week vacation the following summer was hanging in the balance. I can't say enough good about Michele through this uncertain time. Happily, we arrived on STJ as planned and spent five glorious weeks in a fabulous villa.....overlooking Coral Bay and Maho/Frances Bays with views all the way to St. Thomas.....does it get any better than this? Michele and Dave have done an incredible job designing a perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean with all the modern comforts and amenities. We entertained two sets of family members during our stay.....each of us having our own 'floors' and 'decks', so we were able to enjoy some solitude every day before and after we enjoyed the modern kitchen together and the beaches in between. Maho and Frances, our two favorites, were an easy 5 minutes away. We were able to view the parking lot at Maho from SEAclusion, so we always knew when to leave to be ensured of convenient parking there. While there is no doubt that the underwater world of St. John suffered from the hurricanes, we were delighted to find representation of all of the corals, fish and sea life in various stages of rebuilding. We saw more turtles than we have ever seen at Maho......and were delighted by so many young turtles......you didn't even have to make an effort to find them. Simply float.....within minutes, they are below you! Heaven on Earth! The location turned out to be perfect.....we loved the breezy coolness.....kept us cool and the flying pests away. Very comfy beds. Caretakers Wayne & Roseanne are fabulous.....very responsive and eager to please. It was perfect! We can't wait to return!

Vacation Extraordinaire!

Seaclusion is an amazing vacation home that is truly one of a kind - the pictures, while beautiful, don't do justice to this wonderful place. We placed a deposit for our vacation last fall prior to the hurricane hitting the island. Michelle, the owner, provided us with frequent updates on the status of the island over the following months. Based on these communications, we decided to continue with our plans to visit St John in February and we are so glad that we did!! The house , with its 360 degree views of the Caribbean (check out the widow's walk!) , is spectacular. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and the double decker porches were meant for relaxing. While there is still evidence of some hurricane damage on the island, we found the amazing restaurants and shops of St John open and ready for business. From seeing an impromptu performance by Kenny Chesney at the Sun Dog Café to sailing with Captain Max, our stay was fantastic! Michelle, Seaclusion's owner, was so helpful, arranging transportation from the airport to the ferry with Bazille, the best taxi driver(and tour guide) ever! Once on St John, Roseanne and Wayne, Michelle's island hosts, led us to the house and attended to our every question and request throughout the week. We definitely plan on a return visit to St. John and Seaclusion in the near future!!

We are very happy that you & your family had a great time on St. John and at SEAclusion! Thank you for visiting the island in this time of transition and helping in the recovery of the local economy and tourist businesses. We look forward to having you back for a future stay. Although it will be hard to top that impromptu Kenny Chesney performance, we will try our best to make your next stay even more memorable! Thanks again - Michele and Dave Meade

Ideal Island Stay

Seaclusion was the perfect home for our St John vacation. The photos are accurate but the home is even better than a photo can capture--the high quality construction, hand-carved mahogany staircase to the rooftop, furnishings, and outstanding views in complete privacy and quiet. There is a clean pool and extra large hammock for relaxing. The kitchen has full panoramic views, as well as multiple decks with even more views. For us, peaceful Ajax Peak was the best location for easy access to all parts of the island. We especially appreciated making a quick trip to the North Shore to be the first ones in the water for a morning snorkel or an early evening snorkel at Maho or Trunk Bays after the crowds have left. Sunsets and star gazing from the rooftop deck, what a great way to end a full day of snorkeling and exploring. Birds, butterflies, and deer were welcome visitors. Constant breezes kept away mosquitoes. I would not hesitate to return, as I can't imagine a more ideal home or island location. Many thanks for a perfect stay.

Comfortable home with stunning views!

We enjoyed our week long stay at SEAclusion and can't wait to return! We traveled with our parents and our 1 year old, so having a full kitchen, laundry, and 2 master suites make it easy on everyone. There are multiple seating areas (outdoors and indoors) with beautiful views so everyone can spread out if needed. The location was perfect for beach going. Beautiful ocean views out of every room and rooftop deck with 360 degree views! The paved roads and gated access were a plus! The property manager was nearby and was easy to reach when needed. We didn't us the pool because of the weather, but it's nice to have and wish we used it more! Thanks for a great vacation, SEAclusion!

Wonderful experience at Seaclusion with literally the best views on the island!!

Our family of 4 just got back from another wonderful trip on St. John. We fell in love with the island last year where we stayed on Great Cruz Bay. This year we wanted to get up higher with better views and found Seaclusion. We loved the house and Michele was terrific to work with. Excellent communication throughout and feel like we can call her a friend now. Jim is also there right near the house as the caretaker to greet you and take care of any needs you have. He would be there within minutes if we needed anything! As for the house, it is amazing with stunning views. The pictures do not do it justice and the crows nest on top gives you 360 views that are breathtaking. The sunset looking out towards Maho and Cinnamon Bays with St. Thomas in the background was spectacular. The pool was great for the kids and Dad a few times!! It has a well equipped kitchen and with the views we decided to cook in at dinner one night and come home for lunch several days. It is centrally located and really close to Maho Bay, our favorite! We highly recommend Seaclusion and look forward to staying there again soon. Thank you Michele for your hospitality and sharing your little piece of heaven with us for the week! The Triplett family.

What a great house!

I lived on St. John from 1964 until about 1975. My family lived on a ridge not unlike Ajax Peak, just a mile east of this house. I have to say that the views from Seaclusion are spectacular - Coral Bay spreads out in front of you, and the islands that lead to St. Thomas skip away behind you. And Coral Bay is a town much like Cruz Bay was back in the "paradise" days, so being closer to the quiet side is a real plus. I was worried about coming back to St. John after all these years, and while some of those fears were realized, Seaclusion made everything so much better for us. We came here with friends, the man having been a friend of mine when we grew up together on St. John. He and his wife loved the pool in spite of it being "winter", so we came back for drinks and a swim after the days spent at the beaches. And it was wonderful being near the less visited beaches on the island so we could avoid the cruise ship day-trippers at will! We'll come back to St. John and Seaclusion some day soon!

Best of everything

We have had the fortune to stay in beautiful places in beautiful houses but none tops this stay ending in late January 2015. The pictures and videos while totally accurate do not do this house justice. This has seclusion, peace and quiet, and everything you would need for a happy vacation. It was so clean; everything worked and the views made you not want to leave. It is on the quiet side of the island but is only two miles away from Coral Bay that has everyone you might need including great food and an abundance of local color; and not just the beautiful color of the sea! We always think we will come back again but I think this time we mean it> I could not recommend this place any more highly!

Great Time & Stay at Seaclusion

We just got back from an awesome stay at SEAclusion St. John – it’s an amazing villa! We have been coming to St. John for several years now, but our stay at SEAclusion tops them all. Not only is the villa located in a prime location, with close access to St. John’s best beaches and hiking trails, it is one of the only villas in St. John that enjoys sunrise and sunset ocean views! We watched the sunset everyday from the rooftop! The villa is located uptop Ajax’s Peak with views down to Coral Bay and to the west over Maho/Cinnamon Bays and St. Thomas. The villa has all the comforts of home – fully equipped kitchen, comfy king beds, outdoor furniture to relax in, private swimming pool, beach mats, beach coolers & chairs, and Dish Network with a DVD streaming unit to watch shows from our Netflix account (even though we didn’t use that much!) The photos do not do the property justice – the ocean views from inside and outside the home are truly amazing. We will be back soon!
