Lifetime memory in Paradise
This property is located along the Gold Coast (North Shore) of the island in the exclusive Peter Bay community. It sits half way up the hill, and has absolutely stunning views, that you will never get tired of. The house is truly amazing and is as shown on-line in the pictures. Totally disregard the one negative review, as their review was clearly vendictive. All of the best beaches are within 15-20 minutes of house, and actually the beach just down the hill from the house, was our favorite. Very private, and just as nice as Trunk Bay. Most days we had the beach to ourselves. When you come out of drive turn right and immediately take the first left that looks like a private drive. Go all the way to bottom and you will see sign for beach path. It is hilly so you will need to be in shape, but it is so worth it. Actually there is room for 1-2 cars to park by path. The house is well appointed and clean with a gourmet kitchen, which we used each evening so that we could eat dinner and enjoy the amazing views. It was great after spending time at the beach to end the day swimming in the pool and lounging on the deck over looking Peter Bay and the BVI’s. Working with the owners and Linda the property manager was truly a joy. Linda met us at the dock and guided us to house and did a great job getting us situated. She was a great resource for where to go and things to do on the island. Our stay at Amorosa was amazing, and I would highly recommend you consider this villa as it is without doubt the best deal for staying in this exclusive community on St John. You will absolutely fall in love with Amorosa as we did. Already making plans for our next visit.
Overall the property was beautiful. Great view of Petter Bay. The beaches were a short drive from the property, especially to Maho beach which was about 1.6 miles. The outside waterfall was not working which gave off a swamp like smell. It would have made a nice addition to the outside bar if working.
Beautiful views, comfortable house
We enjoyed our stay at Amorosa. It was great to come back from the beach every day and relax in the deck chairs on the patio, enjoying the views. Convenient location to the North Shore beaches and Cruz Bay restaurants. We cooked most nights, and relaxed around the table or in the living room. St. John seems to be recovering from the hurricanes reasonably well, not everything is back to where it was, but things are mostly functioning.
My Favorite Spot in the Carribean!
Amorosa is my favorite spot in the USVI. We have stayed here three times with friends and love it. The central location above Peter Bay and Cinnamon Bay beaches is perfectly convenient for daytime and an easy drive to Cruz or Coral Bay for dinner. We love the well appointed kitchen and usually cook several meals in and admire the beautiful view of Jost Van Dyke, and Mary's Point as we watch the gorgeous shades of turquoise water change and sailboats float by. We love the privacy of each of the four master suites also. I can't wait in January 2020 to return!
Best location on St John usvi
This is our 4th year staying at this property. The north shore views are some of the best on the Island. The location is perfect for going into town or going to the many beaches. In 4 years including post hurricanes the owners have gone out of their way to make sure the villa was in great working order. Any minor problem have always been taken care of in a reasonable amount of time. I highly recommend staying here.
Post-Irma Jitters, but All Good!
We had apprehension heading down and were not expecting everything at the villa to be perfect. We are seasoned St. John travelers and knew what happened to the island. We were more than pleasantly surprised. Cruz Bay was maybe not it's bustling self, but pretty darn close. Restaurants were all great. The villa either was spared the wrath of the storm or they quickly got it in ship-shape. Everything was clean and fresh. Pool was great. We even had internet, wifi and satellite TV.
Thanks for the great week!
Amorosa Peter Bay is located right in the middle of perhaps the nicest of any Caribbean destinations. The National Park of St. John USVI covers over 2/3rds of the island and surrounds the property. Amorosa is also surrounded by many of the world's most fabulous white sand warm blue water beaches. Water sports are available at nearby Cinnamon Bay Beach. The Reef Bay trail to ancient petroglyphs, the ruins at Annaberg and Catherineberg, and Caneel Bay Resort are all nearby. Coral Bay is about a 15 minute car ride. Cruz Bay about ten minutes away offers many fine restaurants, duty free shops, and ferry connections to the BVI and St. Thomas.
