Peter Bay villa description

The Peter Bay Penthouse Suite is a romantic 1BR/1BA villa overlooking the breathtaking Caribbean panoramas of St. John's north shore. Located at the exclusive gated community of Peter Bay Estate, the Peter Bay Penthouse Suite occupies the upper level of the Peter Bay Gatehouse Villa which consists of two 1BRs. The lower level suite is the Honeymoon Suite, and the upper level suite is the Penthouse Suite. Each suite is private, and self-contained with separate entrances. The Penthouse Suite, and the Honeymoon Suite can each accommodate an additional two guests in the living room queen sleeper sofa. Both the Penthouse Suite and the Honeymoon Suite can be rented together as a 2BR / 2BA.

At the Peter Bay Penthouse suite, you are surrounded by the pristine turquoise waters, white sand beaches, and emerald green hills known as St. John's north shore. From the dramatic upper level balcony, living room, and private hot tub, your view from the Peter Bay Penthouse Suite is a magnificent panorama from the British Island of Jost Van Dyke across Thatch & Mary point, to the U.S. Virgin Islands beaches of Francis Bay, Maho Bay, and Cinnamon Bay.

The Peter Bay Gatehouse, architecturally designed in the old-world style of a 17th century Danish Mill Tower, as seen at the Annaberg & Catherineberg historical sites, is a St. John landmark as the historical period Gatehouse is located at the gate entrance to the exclusive Peter Bay Estate community, overlooking the majestic U.S. & British Virgin Islands.

Within this Danish Tower design, the upper level Penthouse Suite is a spacious 1000 sq ft. 1BR/1BA designed in old-world elegance. The comfortable living room, and large exterior balcony look out to a spectacular Caribbean view. The lovely bedroom with its curved walls taking on the
circular shape of the exterior mill design has a romantic, king size four poster bed. There is a mini-kitchen with microwave, a breakfast bar, outdoor grill, and alfresco dining on the ocean view balcony with a dining table for 4. The spacious bathroom with garden shower is designed in beautiful island stone & classic tile.

The ocean view balcony of the Penthouse Suite has a private hot tub with gorgeous views of the beautiful U.S. & British Virgin islands. By evening, the stars of the north shore sky shine brighter, and the glimmering lights of Jost Van Dyke, and Tortola in the distance define romance in the Caribbean.

The Peter Bay Penthouse Suite is fully air conditioned, plus has ceiling fans, wifi & phone, satellite TV, an outdoor grill, all linens & towels, a laundry room, & private parking.

Peter Bay Estate is considered St. John's most prestigious address due to the multi-million dollar villas drawn to this location by the majesty and awe-inspiring beauty of its Caribbean setting. Peter Bay Estate is one of the very few parcels of pristine north shore land that was not deeded to the U.S. Virgin Islands National Park by Lawrence Rockefeller in the 1950s. Today, the Peter Bay community remains tranquil, peaceful, private and exceptionally scenic, surrounded on all sides by National Park forests, waters and reefs.

The Peter Bay Penthouse Suite is located in the upper row of Villas that stretches across the exclusive north shore neighborhood of lower Peter Bay. It is about a 5-minute walk from your villa to the white sands and turquoise waters of Peter Bay Beach, exclusive to you as a Peter Bay VIP guest. In addition, you are about a one minute drive to Trunk Bay Beach, and a 3 minute drive to Cinnamon Bay Beach.

Your Peter Bay north shore neighborhood consists of beach after beach of 13 world-class beaches!
Should you choose one beautiful beach a day to enjoy, you will run out of days before you run out of beaches. The Peter Bay Penthouse Suite is a very special world-class villa for those seeking romance, serenity, and tropical majesty.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2014

                      About the owner: Richard Matheny, President of Suite St. John Luxury Villas, owns and manages The Peter Bay Gatehouse. Richard has owned vacation property on St. John for over 25 years and maintains The Peter Bay Gatehouse Suites to the high standards of connoisseurs of elegant Caribbean living. Richard and his wife, Linda, enjoy the majesty and tranquility of St. John's north shore panoramas viewed from the Peter Bay Gatehouse. On family trips, Richard & Linda enjoy sitting on the white sand of Peter Bay beach watching their family snorkeling and exploring Peter Bay.

                      Why the Owner Chose Peter Bay:
                      The Peter Bay Gatehouse is within the gated community of Peter Bay Estate, St. John, VI's most prestigious address. Peter Bay Estate is one of the few parcels of pristine North Shore land that was not deeded to the Virgin Islands National Park. It is one of the very few St. John properties with a private white sand beach. The Peter Bay Gatehouse is private, tranquil, and surrounded on all sides by the Virgin Islands National Park. The views from The Peter Bay Gatehouse are breathtaking, the Peter Bay Gatehouse suites are the only 1BRs on the North Shore, and famous world-class beaches are 3-10 minutes away. Walk to Peter Bay Beach (7 minutes), or drive to Trunk Bay Beach (3 minutes), and Cinnamon Bay Beach (10 minutes). All these factors were foremost in deciding on the purchase of the Peter Bay Gatehouse.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Location, location, location! The exquisite Peter Bay Gatehouse is sandwiched halfway between two of the most beautiful beaches in the world - Trunk and Cinnamon Bay. Trunk Beach is about a 1 minute drive from the Gatehouse, and Cinnamon Beach is about a 3 minute drive. Peter Bay's own private Peter Bay Beach has some of the best snorkeling on the Island, yet is extremely private since Peter Bay is a gated community. In addition the remainder of the magnificent North Shore beaches are also just minutes away. And the elegant Peter Bay Gatehouse Suites - The Honeymoon Suite, and The Penthouse Suite are the only 1bedrooms on the North Shore.
