Breathtaking views over Cinnamon Bay!

Cinnamon Stones Villa sits high on the hillside of Estate Catherineberg, a small community of villas surrounded by the Virgin Islands National Park. Overlooking Cinnamon Bay, Peter Bay, Francis Bay, and Johnson's Reef, you can see from Lovango in the west, north to Jost Van Dyke, and east to Tortola. It is truly a panoramic view.

The house is located on one landscaped acre full of tropical trees and plants. The hillside is steep, but the stones and the rock outcrop are quite beautiful.

The house was designed by St. John architect and artist Carolyn Caldwell and constructed in 1999 by her husband, Ken Betts. It takes advantage of all the best features of Caribbean homes: thick concrete walls, louvered doors, ceiling fans, and cool stone floors. Skill and craftsmanship are evident throughout this very special house.

The Great Room is cool and comfortable, with plenty of room for you and your family or friends. There is a vaulted kingpost ceiling over the sitting area which has two very comfortable sofas, perfect for watching a movie. Or you may prefer reading a book from a collection of over 200 contemporary fiction novels. Original paintings by well-known St. John artists hang throughout the house. Off the Great Room is a small office with a desk, fax machine, and more books. A guest bath is adjacent.

Every door in the Great Room opens to the verandah and the view of the sea. The comfortable teak furniture on the verandah includes rockers, big arm chairs, a love seat, and a dining table for enjoying the view. There's also a swinging rope chair that takes advantage of the panorama and is perfect for a lazy afternoon.

Enjoy the great view while dining inside or out. The interior dining area has a large teak table which can easily seat eight. There is an abundance of serving pieces, platters, bowls and trays, and a wine rack is built into the adjacent counter.

The kitchen is designed for serious cooking with every appliance and utensil you may need. Off the kitchen is a pantry for storage of large pots, pans, and picnic equipment.

From the kitchen door, it is a short walk to the master bedroom suite across the pergola-covered terrace. The screened porch here has a comfortable rocker and an armchair, and the bathroom has a large screened outdoor shower with a great ocean view. There is a large walk-in closet for all your clothes and other belongings.

The lower deck is where the 40 X 8 lap pool and hot tub are located. All the decks are made of Trex, which has no splinters and is soft on bare feet. It is roomy around the pool as well, with six lounge chairs and additional tables and chairs. There is a laundry room off the pool deck with a washer, dryer, and small refrigerator for cold drinks. There is also an adjacent full bathroom which opens onto the deck.

On the lower level are two large bedrooms, each with a unique bathroom and walk-in closet. The Rock Bedroom has a king size bed. In the mahogany armoire is a large TV with VCR.

The Pool Bedroom has a king size sleigh bed. There is a big comfortable wicker chair with footstool, perfect for watching a movie or TV. The bathroom has a large shower with louvered doors which open to the hillside garden.

-- (3) twin beds available

adjacent to the Rock Suite for families with children which can be used instead of the Pool Suite.

At Cinnamon Stones Villa, you are surrounded by the beauty of the woods and the sea, and the house has been carefully designed and decorated with this in mind.
