This incredible compound is comprised of a grand four bedroom main home, with an adjacent and independent 2 bedroom guest cottage with separate entrance and amenities. The Point is located on the St John peninsula known as Maria Bluff, sitting at the very edge of the promontory. While it is convenient to Cruz Bay and the North Shore beaches, it is also a private paradise that you will never want to leave.
You arrive through an elegant outdoor gate and wind your way through a thoughtfully designed Zen Garden, complete with Asian accents and reflection bench.
As you enter the main house, you pass through the lobby of the 50 foot high observation tower which has been lovingly decorated by the owner to give you a feeling of the sea, replete a spiral staircase, reminiscent of sea kelp, leading to the observation deck. This deck has 300 degree views of the ocean and island which are truly awesome, a perfect place to enjoy some quiet time and simply take in the natural beauty.
The Point was designed by artfully blending exterior and interior spaces offering multiple gathering, lounging and dining spots. Numerous decks surround the house and its sparkling pool, which features a disappearing edge to truly give you the sensation of being on the sea.
A hot tub shares the pool deck, for breezy island evenings spent watching the twinkling lights of the stars and distant islands. Steps below, an incredible octagonal observation deck literally hangs over the cliff to the ocean, where you can observe fish in the tidal pools below, watch the sun slip below the horizon or simply close your eyes and listen to the pounding surf.
Back on terra firma, the Point offers 4 air-conditioned master suites, all with custom designed 4 poster beds and private decks with ocean views. Each of these thoughtfully designed retreats has ensuite bath with double vanity and an open native stone shower to take in the views. In addition, all of the bedroom suites are built with exterior access for maximum privacy.
The interior living space features an efficient and well-designed kitchen with mahogany cabinetry that opens onto a breakfast bar, living room and more ocean views.
An adjacent breakfast nook with television serves as a spot to enjoy a hot morning beverage, and perhaps catch up on the news or your emails. An additional half bath is conveniently located here as well. Throughout, The Point is designed and decorated in a contemporary eclectic style, combining warm natural wood pieces, modern furnishings accented in soothing natural and sea tones and unique original artwork. All combine to offer beautiful yet inviting spaces.
For larger groups, a separate and independent 2 bedroom guest cottage is adjacent to the main house, and can be rented with the main home, or independently when the main house is booked. The Point at Maria Bluff - unique and inspiring, a soaring castle above the sea. This is a home you will never forget, come experience it for yourself!
