Relax and unwind in luxury at Mare Blu
Mare Blu's great floor plan, superb design, lighting, and finishes distinguish this spectacular rental villa overlooking Rendezvous Bay on St. John's southern coast. Built in four spacious pavilions linked together by generous outdoor living spaces, the sparking pool and tropical gardens, Mare Blue offers full air conditioning throughout the villa. Its excellent floor plan is designed so that all of the home's living space and pool is on one level. Six large bedroom/bath suites, a stunning indoor gourmet kitchen flanked by an outdoor kitchen dining and sitting area, and a beautifully-decorated Great Room and loggia are just a start at Mare Blu.
Mare Blu has six large bedroom/bathroom master suites, two located at pool level, three on the garden level and one in the pavilion above the grand veranda. All bedroom suites are beautifully furnished, air conditioned hideaways that take full advantage of their picturesque location. All the suites have flat screen televisions with cable. Bathrooms have double vanities, showers, and are tiled in grey granite from floor to ceiling. The Orange suite features an alfresco shower, Yellow a semi-alfresco shower and the Pink suite also offers a bathtub.
All of the villa's living space is on the main level of the main pavilion. The sunny Great Room, with two comfortable seating areas, provides a 55 inch HED, LCD, HDTV with cable, DVD player, movies, games and game table. A powder room, travertine marble from top to bottom, is conveniently located around the corner. Adjacent, the gourmet kitchen leaves nothing to be desired, even by the most discerning of gourmet cooks. It is well stocked with a large variety of glassware, stemware, dinnerware and cookware. The kitchen is decorated in rich colors of the Caribbean with custom cabinetry of exotic African makori burl wood, a wall of colored glass tiles. It has a large island with stainless steel prep sink and a screened pass through window which communicates with the outdoor living space. The kitchen is equipped to feed the masses with its top of the line stainless steel appliances, including a three door refrigerator/freezer, standard oven, microwave/convection oven and two dishwashers. Sliding glass pocket doors lead from Mare Blu's indoor kitchen to its outdoor kitchen. The outdoor kitchen provides easy service to the alfresco dining room and includes a professional gas grill, second oven, icemaker and generous countertop space. The dining room joins the covered outdoor living room resulting in one expansive outdoor living space with awesome ocean views every which way you turn. With an abundance of outdoor seating and lounging furniture this space is the true heart of the villa. Guests spend much of their time in the shade of the veranda enjoying the warm sea breeze and reading, listening to music, enjoying cocktails and conversation while taking in the beauty of the seascape.
The covered veranda flows directly into the sundeck and the infinity edge pool, surrounded by chaise lounges. In the poolside lounge there is an inviting pair of Dedon swivel chairs - built for two or three. The lounge contains a flat screen television with cable and DVD player. The 55 in flat screen can be viewed while afloat in the 48' pool. The thoughtfully designed lounge also includes refrigerator drawers for drinks and snacks, a closet filled with floats and pool toys, a powder room for convenience. Just next door, in the laundry room, guests will find a large stock of fresh beach towels. From one end of this amazing outdoor space to the other, the ocean views are framed with color and texture by a garden of tropical plants. Large pots overflowing with native plants punctuate the veranda with cascading color.

"Elegantly Comfortable & Amazing
Where to begin? Mare Blu is absolutely beautiful. There's not one square foot that isn't perfectly decorated as well as functional! The kitchen (inside and outside) is completely stocked with any & everything you could possibly want...Suitable for a chef! The bedrooms are all so roomy and the décor is unbelievable! loved the bathrooms too...very spacious!! The pool area and sitting area by the outside dining table were our two most favorite hangouts!!
The description of Mare Blu for us is clearly Elegantly Comfortable!! This home could not have been more perfect for our group of 6 couples! The Best 50th birthday a girl could ever have!! We Must go back!!!"

"Great House!...Great Island!...Great Time!
Mare Blu was the perfect home for our families to enjoy while at St. John. We had the opportunity to bring our friends and their kids to St. john for their first visit to the island. Teri & Bernie were tremendously helpful upfront and their advice was extremely helpful and accurate. Their home was laid out perfectly for our two families and kids (6 kids under the age of 10). We had plenty of room to spread out but there is also great outdoor space to hang out together. The outdoor kitchen and pool area is perfect for families to enjoy meals and to just hang out and relax. They truly thought out everything when they designed the layout. We were very pleased with the location as well.
It was a short drive to town and to the North Shore beaches. Their property manager was also very accommodating while we were there. We arrived almost 6 hours late due to travel issues and they kindly did a quick store run for us so that we had the essentials for the kids breakfast the following morning.
Overall we really had a dream vacation with our children and made many wonderful memories while staying at Mare Blu.
We will definitely be back!!!"

"A very hearty thank you for opening your fantastic house to us! Arriving down your driveway and through the gates into that oasis propelled a very excited group to new heights of enthusiasm. We were in the pool within minutes, with the dreamlike view of the Caribbean below and twinkling lights of St. Croix beyond. Every aspect of the home was comfortable to the point of luxurious and conducive to both privacy and group living. From the well-equipped indoor and outdoor kitchens, the en-suite bedrooms, and multiple outdoor living spaces, it was hard to decide where to hang out – although the perfectly sited infinity pool almost always won.
Among many stand-out moments, an image of all the men in our group floating for hours in the pool one gorgeous Sunday afternoon while watching football on the large-screen television in the outdoor tv area highlights the pure relaxation and all-you-could-wish-for ambiance of the entire week. Every amenity you could desire provided in a brochure-quality setting.
Dining at the expansive outdoor table and gathering afterward on the covered terrace (before inevitably ending up back in the pool) each evening was the stuff of dreams…only to be surpassed by waking up the following morning to balmy breezes and panoramic views of a sparkling Caribbean, framed by hibiscus and bougainvillea. I need to stop now, before abandoning all real-life commitments and catching the first plane back to your Paradise! Thank you again for sharing the magic.
