A six foot high terra cotta Chinese Emperor (weighing over 500lbs and brought back to St. Thomas from Xian in China) greets you as you enter Siren’s Song’s foyer.
A waterfall and water gardens welcome you into this luxurious mansion. Guppies swim in the water garden and keep Siren's Song virtually mosquito free.
The water garden is surrounded by the thirty foot inner balcony on the landing of the upper level with high cypress clad cathedral ceiling above.
To the right is the gourmet kitchen and to the left a powder room and storage area.
Ahead of the foyer is a sitting area where six people can sit in rocking chairs surrounding a coffee table and gaze through a wide arched covered opening with ornamental screened doors.
Steps lead down from the main level to the pool level below where they curve outwards. This is classic Caribbean design known as "welcoming arms". There is a planter in front of the infinity edge swimming pool.
Either side of the pool are green lawns and colorful plantings. Beyond the pool is the lower level lawn and beyond that is the Caribbean Sea. To the left of the sitting area is the living area and to the right of the sitting area is the indoor dining area.
