West Wing
Main Level

Aurora is a wonderfully designed 2,400 square foot house located on Contant Point. This area combines convenience with seclusion and spectacular views from sunrise to sunset. Aurora is minutes from town on a fully paved road and a few minutes more from St. John's white sand beaches and great snorkeling. Comprised of two buildings surrounded by lush tropical foliage and bougainvillea-filled rock gardens, the house has broad decks framed by formal Grecian columns. Aurora’s main focus is the courtyard pool terrace with its sunny and shaded areas and glorious views of the sapphire sea, St. Thomas and Great Cruz Bay. At night the twinkling lights on St. Thomas are magical.

One enters this very private property via steps, which lead down to an entrance pavilion and the villa’s main level. On either side of the pavilion, allamanda-laden pergolas connect the west wing, with the living/dining area and apartment below to the two-story east bedroom wing. From the main level more stairs lead down to the upper terrace and then a few more broad steps down to the 17’ x 22’ pool. Aurora is a wonderfully designed house, which affords privacy for all guests, very comfy furnishings and fabulous views.
