Estate Shoys - 2 bedroom villa
Royal Palms, set within the exclusive Estate Shoys gated enclave, offers breathtaking ocean views and secure privacy for the most discerning of villa guests. This uncommonly refined and comfortable residence, set on nearly an acre of beautifully landscaped grounds, overlooks the greens of the golf course and the deep, limitless blues of the ocean beyond. It is sequestered within the gated community of Shoys, adjacent to St. Croix's renowned Buccaneer Hotel Resort. The driveway, lined with royal palms, winds through masses of colorful bougainvillea to the villa's dramatic gated entryway, shaded by tropical palms and a pergola, which welcome you into the quiet cool seclusion of Royal Palms.
Professionally decorated, the fully-air-conditioned living, dining and powder rooms, the kitchen, and both air-conditioned king bedroom suites all border a deep, shaded covered gallery that additionally is furnished for living and dining. All rooms are plush and relaxing and provide several indoor and outdoor living and dining areas. The Great Room is spacious, comfortable and handsomely done in gracious tropical style. The gourmet kitchen is on one side of the Great Room, and on the other side, french doors open from the Great Room to a large screened lanai, a stunning additional living and dining area, where tall, fully-screened arches provide a view of whispering coconut palms, green lawn, and the lagoon beyond.
The two king bedroom/bath suites are luxurious and comfortable; the master suite features photo portraits from Africa and a unique hand carved four-poster king bed. Both suites are finished in the soothing colors of the Caribbean, accented with vivid punches of tropical color. Even the powder room is adorned with a painted wall mural by a well-known local artist. Royal Palms, with its unique collection of art and photographs and stylish designer furnishings, is exceedingly well equipped. From the gallery, dramatic arches festooned with boughs of flowering bougainvillea frame the spacious pool, sun deck and Caribbean, with 180-degree azure sea views to the north, east and west. Inside and out, tiled floors with brick detail add to the beauty of this villa. The professionally landscaped gardens are lush, colorful and well-manicured.
Complete privacy is yours at Royal Palms, but you are less than a minute's drive from The Buccaneer Hotel's golf, tennis, and its two beaches, as well as Shoys' own white sand beach. Add in the excellent dining found on St. Croix, and this is the perfect villa for those seeking the very best within an unforgettable setting of luxury, elegance, beauty and total privacy.
