General Information About Aria....
Aria is a private villa located on beautiful St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The home is tucked into the sub-tropical vegetation on Ajax Peak, overlooking the gorgeous Coral Bay Harbor and British Virgin Islands.
Aria is oriented to take advantage of the cooling trade winds, and has unsurpassed majestic views. The airconditioning in the villa is rarely needed, although it is available.
A private electric gate protects you and your few neighbors from donkeys and goats eating the lush vegetation...
Aria is perfect for the discriminating honeymoon couple, or any couple (or two couples) who want to get away from it all in a fantastic lush tropical location. For people who desire clothing optional privacy for that all-over-tan, Aria's location is ideal.
The villa is unusual in a number of ways, not the least of which is that it is an insulated masonry home. The walls and roof contain 2 inches of foam insulation, sandwiched between sturdy concrete (gunnite/shotcrete/poured). This gives the home all of the strength benefits of a masonry home, while none of the downside that some masonry homes have of being hot at the end of the day...
Aria's masonry pool is deep enough to tread water in the deep end. It is purified by a combination of Nature2 (tm), commercial ozone, and chlorine tablets, resulting in amazingly pure water.
The house has both battery backup power (36 x 800 amp hour electric submarine batteries with a 4000 watt sine wave inverter) as well as a diesel generator to cover times when the power company has an outage so long that the batteries need a charge. The house is wired to automatically shed high energy loads during a power outage in order to prolong the critical support systems.
There are two wonderful master bedrooms (each with a king sized bed) so there are no worries of which couple gets the 'more desirable' bedroom!
The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, a dishwasher, a good selection of electric appliances, sets of pots and pans, microwave, gas stove...and everything you might need in the way of utensils and the like.
Aria's entertainment center can pipe music selectively into the bedrooms or great room from a central control panel. Cable TV, a DVD player, Stereo with CD player, and an aux input for those with iPods.
Over 150 books (at last count) are available to the reader in the downstairs book case.
Broadband Internet is available via both wifi, and ethernet. In addition, Aria has two phone lines to provide a backup if one line goes down, and to allow incoming calls while on the phone or sending or receiving a fax from Aria's fax machine...
