Then again, perhaps you’ll simply stay put. Secluded on an acre of land beside St John’s national park area, the gated home includes an elevated pool deck whose loungers look gloriously seawards – with views as far as the British Virgin Islands over Johnson’s Reef. So too does the shaded outdoor dining area. Almost as pretty is Azul itself, thanks to cherry-red walls and a turquoise theme across its shutters and sun beds. Similarly impressive are landscaped gardens containing a hammock, barbecue grill and pineapple plant whose fruit is yours to pick.
Make for the air-conditioned indoors and you’ll find plenty of soothing pastel, pine and white surfaces. Below pitched ceilings, the communal ‘great room’ combines a lovely kitchen, a sofa area and a smaller table. Pot plants instil a tropical feel here and in the three ensuite bedrooms. Deliberately spread around the house, these feature private outdoor terraces to delight privacy-seeking couples or family members craving their own space. See more details
