Property Description

The Property

The two villas have been built in the Caribbean style with expansive covered decks, wide folding blue  doors and terracotta-tiled floors. They both contain a master bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen.

The house is on the upper arrival level at the end of a short gated drive with ample parking. The cottage, pool and sun terrace are on the lower level accessed by a short flight of lit steps through the banana trees.

Makere House

The signature feature of Makere House is its 12-ft wide wrap around covered deck with stunning views over the ocean to the US Virgin Islands of St John and St Thomas in the distance.

The centre of the house is the open kitchen, living room and breakfast bar, providing a natural environment in which to relax. The master bedroom adjoins the living room, has its own en-suite bathroom and opens onto the deck and views beyond.

Makere Cottage

The cottage is just as spacious. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, day bed and plenty of closet space. The living room can be converted to a third bedroom and both rooms adjoin a 10-ft covered deck.

The pool and sun terrace are on the same level offering a welcome escape from the heat and a lovely focal point for both villas. The terrace provides a spacious area for sunbathing, barbequing and al fresco dining.
