About the property

Villa rates vary 3 to 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 to 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

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.

About Diana Hall

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 their stay if the need arises.

Diana Hall purchased this villa in 2009

Why Diana Hall chose Estate 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.

What makes this villa unique

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!

St John Villa with Ocean Views!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 2, 2011

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! The VRBO Bear

Amazing Views Part 3 March 30 to April 7, 2018

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our third trip to Areca. There were 8 in our party. There are several things that make Areca special for us and why i highly recommend a stay here. 1)The views and the breeze from the outdoor dining area are fantastic. We enjoyed eating outside and watching the sunset every night; 2) Everything you need at the villa was there with the caveat that an ice maker would be a great addition for the veranda; 3) Lots of space for our group of eight; 4) location on North Shore; and last but not least 5) Diana Hall, the property manager, does a great job taking care of your needs.

Notes: north shore beaches are still very beautiful post hurricane. Less shade but still beautiful. Scuba diving is still great. First time visitors wont notice that the snorkeling on the North Shore is not great compared to before. We hired a boat with captain for a snorkel cruise and was able to find better places than North Shore.

Stunning - Amazing Home. Majestic views - untouched by the hurricanes

  • 5 of 5

We just got home Feb 2nd from an 8 day vacation on St John at Areca. This was our 5th St John vacation in 5 years. Areca is stunning, and the views are fabulous! I wish I could find a stronger word to describe the views...Stunning, breath-taking. St John post hurricane is green and beautiful, the beaches are beautiful, the resturants in Cruz Bay are open, the people and service are wonderful and very welcoming. Areca is located just minutes from beached that are ranked in the top 3 on the planet. Diana is extremely responsive and truly cares. I highly recommend Areca and will book Areca again. Great home, great views, great location, and wonderful owner! Randall K.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying at the Areca last week. There was 7 of us and we had an amazing time. We love staying on St John and the view the Areca villa provided made it even better! The villa itself is very well maintained and we love eating outside on the large table. Great place to take the family!

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes for our family vacation to the USVi for the last 9 years. Areca is the best home so far! Absolutely beautiful, very comfortable, and all the amenities you could ever want. The only thing that needs to be corrected is the pool light. It would have been nice to swim at night in an illuminated pool looking at that amazing view. Thank you Diane for your hospitality!!!
