St. John villa expert

Know Before You Go...

A serene setting and lots of natural beauty greet you at Peace & Plenty Villa. This roomy, architectural haven is perfect for a large family or a group of friends to relax without getting in each other's way. A balcony and private swimming pool will offer countless opportunities to enjoy the spacious villa and to sit back and relax into true island living. Beautiful, woodwork ceiling fans work alongside graceful arched windows to keep you cool, and Cinnamon Bay Beach is only a short drive away. And although the last half-mile is a bit of a bumpy dirt road, it's the perfect deterrent to nosy tourists, so you can visit the beach and snorkel in peace.

Great for 4 couples or a family!

Peace & Plenty Villa is a 3-level villa offering 4 bedrooms, 4 1/2-baths with outstanding ocean views. This villa is located in the exclusive Catherineberg neighborhood of St. John and overlooks Cinnamon Bay. The villa is 480 feet above the bay with views of Jost Van Dyke in the distance, as well as Whistling Cay, Mary Point, and the National Park in the foreground.

Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Bay lie below the villa and offer excellent swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing, sunning, and stress-free relaxation. Peace & Plenty is a 10-15 minute's drive from Cruz Bay and the last 1/2-mile is a bumpy dirt road intended to discourage tourists from exploring this quiet neighborhood.

This area is one of St. John's most beautiful and desirable neighborhoods. This unspoiled setting is in the midst of world-class National Park beaches, surrounded by a naturalist's world of sea, sky, and natural parklands. A short driving distance from Peace & Plenty Villa are Cinnamon Bay Beach, Hawk's Nest Beach, Trunk Bay Beach, Maho Beach, and Francis Bay Beach.

As for the villa itself, most of the living areas are on the main level. The villa consists of three buildings that stretch more than 130 feet and are combined via decks, covered walkways, and a gazebo. Parking is just outside the door and guests enter onto the pool deck.

Enter through screened sliding pocket doors into the 600-square-foot Great Room. The Great Room has a classic Caribbean look with tiled floors, beamed cathedral ceilings with track lighting, and custom built mahogany furniture and cabinets. A 42-inch cable HD plasma TV/DVD and stereo/CD provide the electronic entertainment.

The Great Room and two bedrooms are on the left of the pool and the outdoor living area and two more bedrooms are to the right of the pool. A hallway off the Great Room leads to the lower left bedroom, while the upper left bedroom is accessed by exterior stairs.

The right pair of bedrooms is beyond the outdoor living area (lanai) with each of the two bedrooms being a half-level below or above the pool deck level. A game room with ping pong table is on the lower level.

The four air-conditioned bedrooms are equal in size (about 225 sq/ft) and each includes a private balcony or deck and granite and mahogany tiled bath. All of the bedrooms include custom built mahogany 4-poster king beds that look out onto romantic views. Each bedroom has a private balcony with a view, central A/C, king-sized beds, and hand-carved mahogany furnishings.

Behind the bar is a gourmet kitchen with custom built mahogany cabinets, granite countertops, a 5-burner gas stove and oven, large refrigerator/freezer, and abundant cookware and dinnerware. A half moon bar with bar chairs is off the kitchen and opens to the pool deck through a window.

The kitchen is defined by granite, mahogany, and views seen through arched windows that run the length of the kitchen. A granite and mahogany bar/counter that seats four separates the kitchen from the living room.

Peace & Plenty Villa offers a lovely 500 sq/ft lanai, this is more than a deck with furniture; it's an outdoor living area with comfortable furniture and a 10-person dining table that sits under a large gazebo protecting you from the sun and the occasional island shower. From the lanai, you look through columned arches out to the beautiful views of Jost Van Dyke and the unspoiled National Park. The half-bath is just off the lanai, as is the gas barbeque grill.

The pool, with half moon bar, takes full advantage of the gorgeous view, with Jost Van Dyke in the distance.
