Emerald Seas is an elegant two-level private home built into a mountainside beside the blue-green Caribbean Sea. Stone steps wind down through a bougainvillea-draped walkway to a sunning platform. Wonderful snorkeling can be enjoyed on this coral reef. The open-plan living room leads to a 500-square-foot verandah and panoramic ocean view. Plump cushions on white wicker furniture make this upstairs porch a peaceful haven for morning coffee, reading, napping and star-gazing. Also on the main floor are the four large bedrooms, each overlooking the deep blue water.
Glass doors open from the pool terrace to the family room ... equipped with bar, games, television and sound system.. Speakers fill the lower level and pool terrace with music. The family room can be used as a fifth bedroom with kingsize or twin beds and en-suite bath.
The inside dining room is built into a natural rock formation. Just outside are the al fresco dining area and large private pool.
Emerald Seas state-of-the-art kitchen and creative chef merit special mention.Each morning, the aroma of today's fresh-baked bread lures guests to the breakfast table. The outside barbecue treats guests to special dinners of tenderloin, chicken, fresh fish and lobster.
