CINNAMON TARN: A private gated luxury villa with architecture reminiscent of the stone arches and windmill towers (danish-tarn) of Danish sugar mill ruins, CINNAMON TARN, adorns the crest of a mountain 850 ft. above cinnamon beach. Every room has world class views of famous north shore beaches, the British Virgin Islands or Sir Francis Drake Passage to the northeast and a glimpse of St. Croix to the south.

Two identical master suites with king-size beds, baths, native stone shower towers and private decks are separated by the central living area with large screened gallery and expansive deck with heated large hot tub. Secluded second level library/bedroom reached by stair tower has optional king-size bed or twin beds, and its own deck, the ultimate in private sunbathing and relaxing by day or star gazing by night. Ceiling fans, if needed, are in all rooms. Tradewinds and mountaintop location make air-conditioning unnecessary. St John has an ideal climate; cooler in the Summer and warmer in the Winter than much of the continental United States

The villa is surrounded by Virgin Islands National Park on the magnificent island of St. John with views of blue-green waters, trade wind breezes and tropical fragrances. The perfect place for a relaxing vacation in America's paradise.

About Mark Shekleton

We searched the world for a mountain top with a world class view close enough to all the modern amenities and activities we all enjoy. We found it and built Cinnamon Tarn!

Mark Shekleton purchased this villa in 1995

Why Mark Shekleton chose

Convenience of US Virgin Islands. VI national park occupies 3/5 of the island with multiple forested hiking trails and world class beaches. The island is small with easy accessibility to shopping and sports activities, yet quiet enough to find a relaxing spot to read or just 'chill out'. Convenient airport and ferry access to St Thomas is a plus.

What makes this villa unique

quiet, stunning views! Wonderful breezes. Star-gazing in the hot tub. The twinkling lights of Foxy's , Jost van Dyke and Tortola, BVI. Ten (10) minutes from all the activity of Cruz Bay.

Catherineberg is our favorite

  • 5 of 5

We travel to St John annually and have tried many locations on the island. We prefer the less populated areas and Catherineberg wins our vote for best location. Cinnamon Tarn has the perfect layout for two couples with the bedrooms situated on either end of the living area for privacy. The bathrooms are great with large garden showers. In the past we have rented a house with a pool but have found that the water is usually too cold to enjoy. The hot tub was a great alternative. We loved watching the boat traffic in Francis Bay and Drake's channel. To do so I recommend that you bring binoculars. The kitchen had everything we needed (we cooked in several times to enjoy the view) and the laundry room was a bonus for those of us who travel lightly. The road to get to the house is a little rough but definitely worth the drive. Any issues that we had were handled promptly by Mark and staff. Looking forward to next year.

We knew the views would be spectacular but it is nothing like seeing it in person! Amazing! My husband and I stayed their for our wedding and we are so happy we made the investment here! Mark was accommodating and the villa had everything we needed! Thanks again tony and Flo! We will be back again.
