High up on the hill overlooking beautiful Fish Bay, is a lovely yellow villa with light purple shutters. Welcome to Daffodil Villa, a lovely two bedroom two and half bath home, nestled on a hillside in upper Estate Fish Bay, on St. John's south shore, a haven for peace and privacy and of course is designed with the panorama in mind.
The wide spacious deck and heated swimming pool overlook the Bay and beyond. The pool is 22 X 14 and is only 5 foot deep in the middle and about 4 feet deep around the edges. Very people friendly for everyone and of course is designed with the panorama in mind. Four reclining lounge chairs on a fully landscaped deck and two pool floats are available for relaxing by land or water.
The light-filled great room is bright and airy, decorated with high end furniture and queen pullout, modern art prints, rattan end tables and coffee table. Over the entertainment center is a large wall hanging, hand made in Afganistan. Recently added is a 42" LG - LCD Flat Panel TV with Expanded Digital Cable. Also included is a Magnavox DVD, as well as a collection of CD's, DVD's and an assortment of paperback books for your viewing and listening pleasure.
Off the great room is a small half bath for guests, with cobalt blue tile and a special hand painted sink.
The kitchen is large and fully equipped. A big breakfast bar area with seating for three, track lighting and a large window above the sink to gaze out to the ocean. Over the bar you will notice a large, commissioned oil showing the view of Fish Bay as interpreted by San Antonio born artist Bruno Andrade, who has shown in galleries all over the county. Just off the kitchen is the laundry room which includes a washer and dryer for guest use.
Two dining tables are available on the expansive pool deck. Enjoy dining by day or night. One large round table with comfortable cushion seating on the sun deck under a beautiful wood trellis or a rectangular table under the covered veranda. This gives you the choice of dining in the sun or shade. There is also a gas grill for cooking all your Caribbean delights!
Aside from watching the frigate birds and pelicans swoop and weave over Fish Bay, you may get to see the rays in the crystal blue waters below. There are binoculars for bird or boat watching. You may be lucky enough to see members of the small herd of deer which live in the scrub area down by the salt pond.
This villa has two equal master suites. The Sunrise Suite which faces east and the Sunset Suite which faces west. Each bedroom is located on either side of the great room area, to afford maximum privacy for couples or great for families with children as both bedrooms are housed under the same roof. Sliding glass doors from either bedroom access the deck and pool areas.
The Sunrise Suite includes a mahogany and seagrass queen size bed with heavenly mattress. A comfortable sitting chair for reading or relaxing, a three drawer dresser, air conditioning, a large ceiling fan, telephone, large closet for all your Caribbean attire and multiple windows to feel the breezes that flow from the east. Matching two drawer night stands with wall mounted lights on each side as well as a 19" Sylvania flat screen TV with Expanded Digital Cable complete this suite.
The bathrooms are huge and designed with floating vanities to make them appear even larger. Inset into the dark blue tile are specially made, hand painted sinks in the Talavera style, a type of majolica earthenware which was introduced by the Spanish, but has its origins from the time of the 9th century.
Both bathrooms are full of bright colors and each one is different, bright and reflective of the Caribbean islands themselves. Each bathroom is complimented with soap dispenser, toothbrush holder and hair dryer. The showers are open to the air and designed so you can appreciate the view, the breeze and the wonderful sounds of the island.
The Sunset Suite faces west to take in maximum light and sun exposure. This suite contains a lovely rattan four poster queen size bed, with heavenly mattress for the ultimate nights sleep. Matching rattan night stands with 2 drawers each, wall mounted lights on each side allow for sleep or read time together or separately.
A sitting chair for relaxing or reading, air conditioning, a large ceiling fan, telephone, three drawer dresser, a large closet for all your island wear and multiple windows to take advantage of our cooling tradewinds. This suite also includes a 19" Sylvania flat screen TV with Expanded Digital Cable and built in DVD player.
Picture yourself pool side, gazing out at the endless turquoise sea sparkling below, and the clear blue sky above. At night, when it is clear, you can see the lights from far off St. Croix to the south. You can also
watch the cruise ships sailing to and from St. Thomas.
If you step outside, at the back of the villa, you will see more of the lush tropical gardens. You may notice a bottle embedded in the wall. This was the last bottle of a birthday case of champagne, and was carefully brought down and consumed on the property, just after the driveway was started. It serves as a reminder of that great beginning.

Come experience the magic of Daffodil Villa! All attempts to duplicate the view, which is a full 180 degrees from sunrise to sunset, have been thwarted. But when you reach the top of the villa's personal "Stairway to Heaven" this view will take your breath away.
