Know Before You Go...

Hakuna Matata is a wonderful, spacious home surrounded by flowers, palm trees, and tropical landscaping. The owners have stayed true to the natural settings by including native materials like stones and boulders, and the interior lets guests enjoy modern comfort with Moroccan overtones. All four of the ensuite bedrooms have outdoor showers and access to the covered walkways and patio. Nearby, you’ll find several beaches that offer water sports like snorkeling, scuba diving, and deep sea fishing.

Great for families or friends!

Hakuna Matata sits in the Catherineberg Estate above Cinnamon Bay, and its central location is equidistant between Cruz and Coral Bay. Lush foliage borders the property, and ocean views stretch across the horizon.

The gated entrance gives way to a jungle paradise. Step through the columned archway to the multi-tiered stone terrace, freeform pool, and hot tub. A waterfall and fish pond create ambience, and beach gear and toys waits for endless days of fun. Al fresco dining and loungers are available around the pool, terraces, and gardens. Arched French doors connect the lounging veranda and the living room, which also encompasses an entertainment center and dining table. Another archway leads to the kitchen’s stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and spacious center island. Hakuna Matata’s interiors are exquisitely decorated with art from all over the globe and fully air-conditioned. A backup generator, color printer/copier/scanner, and weekly linen service are also available. There are two powder rooms as well. Hakuna Matata’s four bedrooms each have exterior access and an ensuite bathroom with an outdoor shower. Two suites have king beds, and the others each have two twins that can be made up as kings.

Hakuna Matata is 5-10 minutes from Cinnamon Bay, Trunk Bay, and Hawksnest Beach. Maho Crossroads, a self-powered, energy efficient local market, is also minutes away.

Hakuna Matata, St. John villa review

The House is immaculate and enormous. Perfectly located looking over Cinnamon Bay. The pool is magical. Just 10 mins outside of town - totally secluded and the ultimate getaway. Lives up to the name and then some. The master shower has the best view on the entire island. Just sensational!!

Shawna is the absolute top in her field. There is no one in the Caribbean better. No only does she match you with the absolute best property to match your dreams, she takes care of every last detail to make your trip magical. I can’t say enough about what a wonderful human being this incredible woman is. You will never stay in the Caribbean without her help again.
