John, US Virgin Islands
to the TID BITS Room, A cool place to check out some stuff
about St John and the La Barracuda experience and Just a few
bits of information regarding the property.
The Villa was named this because of the unique layout of the property resembling
a pod of Barracudas.
The property itself is one of the more unique properties on St John and is
located in Chocolate hole near the top of a large hillside, giving visitors
pretty much perfect sunset views everyday. You can also clearly see St Thomas,
St Croix and numerous other smaller islands across the landscape. La Barracuda
has a well known reputation that precedes it as a great gathering place and
has been a favorite for many years from young and old, local and long distance.
We have had a number of repeat visitors who have come back over the years.
As the property has changed and been improved, many past visitors have commented
on the fantastic upgrades to the landscaping (Thanks Gus Textrum) and creative
design layout of La Barracuda. We have decorated the house with completely
local art, giving visitors a much more island style experience while in St
Night time is the right time at "the Cuda" as locals refer to it.
The lighting was designed by a very well known lighting architect and expands
across the landscape for extraordinarily lit romantic and party time atmospheres.
Many visitors have noted that it was a perfect place to "...Just chill
out, no need for going out, we just bbq'd and swam and enjoyed the rum. Our
days spent at a different perfect beach everyday."
Another unique thing about the layout of the Cuda is that as a group or couples,
you can get away to your own area anytime. Each bedroom is separate from the
family room, with separate decks and bathrooms. The lower unit even has its
own fridge, so no need to climb the stairs, just throw a few drinks in your
fridge and hit the lower deck hot tub. We also have a larger and deeper pool
than most places with a great deck, table and umbrella lounges and chairs,
a great place to relax after your day at the beach, shopping, hiking, diving,
there's just so much to do here!! more to come...
