Peter Bay villa description

Areca Peter Bay is named after the areca palm that produces seeds traditionally thought to have a calming effect when chewed. But you won't need to risk this traditional remedy for stress. Areca Peter Bay's privacy, its incredible 180 degree views of the Caribbean from St Thomas to Tortola and the many cays and small islands in between, its professional tropical landscaping, extensive outdoor living spaces and air conditioned interior luxury will calm even the most jangled nerves.

The villa is located in exclusive Upper Peter Bay and nestled between famous Trunk and Cinnamon Bay beaches. Areca villa guests have access to private Peter Bay beach, which is a few minutes drive or hillside walk down the private paved road. Parking is provided at the head of the beach walk.

The villa is unique in that it is situated on over 1 acre and is bordered by National Park to the east, and to the west, a long, gated, expertly landscaped drive provides complete privacy as well. It is truly a special and unique spot for your Caribbean dream vacation.

All five en suite king bedrooms can be rented together, or the Main House (3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths) can be rented alone. The Guest House is never rented separately from the Main House, so every group is assured of complete privacy and exclusive use of all exterior spaces.

                  St John Villa with Ocean Views! 06/02/2011

                  VRBO Bear stayed here:


                  This little bear just had the experience of a lifetime! If you come to grab a taste of the Caribbean, look no further. From the amazing views to the amazing tranquil atmosphere of this property, Areca Peter Bay takes the cake! A long winding driveway reveals a beautiful private gate welcoming you to your home away from home. All the amenities were exquisitely maintained and the surrounding landscape was crafted with the utmost expertise, including lush tropical plants and fruits ripe for the picking at every glance. A true kaleidoscope of color!

                  The beautiful infinity pool was a great place to spend time at sunrise or sunset and was often frequented. Truthfully the view was spectacular from anywhere on the property! Most nights were spent on the magnificent patio area, poolside, with the BBQ grill smoking and the gentle bay breezes blowing, creating the most relaxing evenings.

                  The local town, shopping and white sandy beaches were mere minutes away and the local residents were always welcoming. The cleaning crews that came during the week were cheery and very hospitable. Not to mention the owner, Diana was extremely helpful, available for anything at anytime and was a real treat! She pointed out key places to dive, kayak and snorkel near the area and they did not disappoint. This little bear will be returning again and again and you should do the same!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: My husband and I completed construction on our Peter Bay Villa in 2009. This photo was taken early on during construction. My husband's law practice is on St Thomas where we live. I manage the villa--greeting each group of guests and orienting them to the villa and the area and continuing to be available throughout your stay if the need arises.

                  Why the Owner Chose Peter Bay:
                  My husband and I built the villa on property in Peter Bay that has been in his family for several generations. We felt very blessed to have such a lovely spot to build on and put a lot of personal energy and creativity into building the home. We currently live on St Thomas but will eventually retire to St John.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  The outdoor living in such an incredible location coupled with all the indoor comforts make staying here peaceful and relaxing. Between the architecture, the landscaping, and the view, you never run out of beautiful things to look at. And the north shore beaches are minutes away!
