About Kismet, St. John

This property sets a superlative standard among St. John's luxury villas. This spacious and fully-screened home is beautifully designed and executed with a sumptuous Moroccan flair and luxuriously furnished with your comfort in mind.

Situated behind an electronic gate, Kismet offers three fully air-conditioned pavilions with five bedroom/bath suites in two pavilions, and the Great Room pavilion encompassing separate living and dining areas, a movie theater and a gourmet kitchen.

The master bedroom pavilion features a sitting room, bedroom and bath with a steam shower and bathtub. The next two bedrooms are situated in Kismet's second poolside pavilion, with a few stairs leading down to a second breezy patio set with a Moroccan fountain; two more bedrooms/bath suites and an air-conditioned billiard room with two single daybeds, wet bar and full bath adjoin.

All three pavilions open into a just-remodeled tiled courtyard with a sparkling pool and hot tub that sits 12, enjoying magnificent views of St. Thomas in the blue distance. Take a stroll off the courtyard along a path that winds through the enticing, lush gardens planted with exotic date palms, majestic royal palms, tropical flowers and fruits, set with a magnificent gazebo and small private seating areas for quiet moments.

Located above the master bedroom pavilion via a staircase, the Sun Room features spectacular long-distance views of the pool courtyard and miles beyond to the horizon through its open arches. Seating banquettes within this scenic aerie are strewn with colorful, plush cushions from which to enjoy sunsets, cocktails and cooling tradewinds.

Kismet's screening room, perhaps the only home theater on St. John, features armchair seating for 10 persons and a 65-inch LED-HD screen and a collection of 1,500 movies to watch.

Stunning custom woodwork throughout this incredible villa adds to Kismet's privileged aura. All of Kismet's bedrooms offer satellite television with Blu-ray DVD players and internet access, but if you don't bring your laptop, a computer with printer is available in the main living area for easy access to your email. Kismet sets the benchmark in the U.S. Virgin Islands for luxury, and offers an unprecedented level of attentive and special service to villa guests' needs and desires - unequivocally, five stars plus!

Also included in your rental:

ONE COMPLIMENTARY ROUND-TRIP transfer FOR KISMET GUESTS from the St. Thomas airport to the National Park Dock in Cruz Bay, St. John: A private air-conditioned taxi van with a professional driver will meet your incoming flight at the St. Thomas airport (or at any other pre-arranged location on St. Thomas), and drive you in air-conditioned comfort to the National Park ferry dock on St. Thomas, where a private water taxi will take you directly to St. John's National Park dock. There you will be met by Kismet's Estate Manager in Kismet's private customized Tundra safari wagon; he will assist you with your rental vehicles (if we have not already arranged for your rental cars to be at the villa), and will escort you to Kismet and get you settled. Only one transfer over to St. John and back to St. Thomas's airport is included; should your group have multiple arrivals, additional transfers can be arranged, well in advance, at your expense.
