Catherineberg villa description
Cinnamon Stones sits high on the hillside of Estate Catherineberg, a small prestigious community of luxury villas, surrounded by the Virgin Islands National Park. Overlooking Cinnamon Bay, Peter Bay, Francis Bay and Johnson's Reef, you can see from Hans Lollick and Lovango in the west, north to Jost Van Dyke and east to Tortola. It is a big, breathtaking view.
The house is on one acre of beautifully landscaped land. The steep hillside is covered with old stones and a very special thirty foot high rock outcrop. The colors of the stone were an inspiration for the interior of the house. 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, an abundance of louvered doors on all sides, ceiling fans and cool stone floors. Skill and craftsmanship are evident throughout this very special house.
Entry to the house is from the hillside garden on the second level. As you pass under the pergola, the house opens to the magnificent view. The Great Room is painted a cool gray lavender, the color of the British Virgin Islands and the sea at dawn and dusk, which you see through six louvered mahogany French doors. All the mahogany doors and windows were handcrafted on St. John. The floor is imported Italian limestone.
There is a vaulted kingpost ceiling over the sitting area which has two very comfy sofas, perfect for watching a movie. Or you may prefer choosing something to read from a collection of over 200 books of contemporary fiction - many award winners and best sellers of the past ten years. Original paintings by well known St. John artists hang throughout the house. Off the Great Room is a small office with desk, fax machine, wireless DSL and more books. A guest bath is adjacent.
The interior dining area has a large antique teak table which can easily seat eight. The table settings include dinnerware by Villeroy and Bock, stainless flatware by Gorham.
There is an abundance of serving pieces, platters, bowls and trays. A wine rack is built into the adjacent counter. The kitchen is designed for serious cooking with a Decor gas stove, Sub Zero refrigerator and a very quiet Bosch dishwasher. The white custom made cupboards with red hand glazed tile counter tops are filled with all the important and not so important kitchen equipment from Williams-Sonoma. Off the kitchen is a pantry for storage of large pots, pans, and picnic equipment. Enjoy the breathtaking view while dining inside or out.
Every door in the Great Room opens to the gracious veranda and the glorious blue sea. The comfortable teak furniture on the veranda includes rockers, big arm chairs, a love seat and a dining table for enjoying the indescribable view. You can sit at the end of the long veranda, in the swinging rope chair facing the rock shelter, the faint remains of stone terraced farming, the tyre palm grove, the bay rum tree and beautiful Cinnamon Beach below.
From the kitchen door it is a short walk to the Master Bedroom suite across the pergola covered terrace with its fragrant night blooming jasmine. The pale gray walls, white woodwork and mahogany floors and doors create a beautiful space for the St. Croix four poster mahogany bed. The screened porch has a rocker and an armchair. The bathroom has a large screened outdoor shower with a magnificent ocean view. There is a large walk-in closet for all your island attire.
From the upper level deck you look down on the 40 X 8 heated lap pool and hot tub. On the lower deck there are two roomy umbrellas that can be moved to shelter you from the sun as you lounge on the steps in the water.
All the decks are made of Trex, which has no splinters and is soft on bare feet. It is roomy around the pool with six lounge chairs along with 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 which is a copy of a plantation bed. In the mahogany armoire is a large TV with VCR. The pale peach walls glow as light filters through the mahogany louvered doors. All doors have full sliding screens so that the louvered doors may be left open, if desired.
The beautiful lower veranda has more comfortable rockers and arm chairs with a hammock for afternoon naps. A circular second stairway leads to the Great Room from the end of the veranda. The Pool Suite has a king size four poster mahogany bed. The room is painted soft green to reflect the tropical woods which surround the house. There is a big comfortable wicker chair with footstool perfect for watching a movie or TV in the large red Chinese armoire. The bathroom is wonderful with a large shower with mahogany louvered doors which open to the hillside garden.
At Cinnamon Stones you are surrounded by the beauty of the woods and the sea. The house is a tribute to architectural restraint and a sensitivity to Caribbean style. It is place to love and to return again and again.

Cinnamon StonesGuest comment entered by manager
As beautiful as the ocean view is, I actually like the front walkway even more. It's an ampitheatre for the song birds. Your home is spectacular, the furnishings are wonderful and I love all the paintings. And, you can't beat a shower with a view. Peace and harmony to you both.
