Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathsrooms, Sleeps 8

Anole is a 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath villa that is located in Cinnamon Bay, surrounded by St. John’s National Park and about 600 feet above the soft white sands of Cinnamon Beach. This is considered to be one of St. John’s finest neighborhoods and the homes in this upscale locality tend to be pricey and distinctive. Although there are other homes in the neighborhood, the privacy of Anole is superb and this setting is the very definition of a peaceful, quiet and away-from-it-all island hideaway. The view is absolutely gorgeous and includes Tobago and Little Tobago Islands, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, and other islands floating on a sea that continuously changes colors throughout the day. Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Bay lie below you and offer excellent swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing, and stress free relaxation on a world class beach. It's a 15 minute drive into or from Cruz Bay and the last 1/2 mile is a bumpy dirt road intended to discourage tourists from wandering into your very private and quiet neighborhood.

Anole is built on two levels. The great room and two bedrooms/baths, plus a half bath are on the upper level, and two more bedrooms/baths and the pool are on the lower level. You park on the upper level and as you enter the great room the first thing you see is the gorgeous view of Cinnamon Bay. The kitchen and interior dining are on the right side, while the living area occupies the left half of the great room. A tiled sundeck is off the great room, and exterior stairs off the sundeck lead to the pool and the lower bedrooms. The lower bedrooms also offer lots of privacy, with a covered deck located between them. The pool sits in a very private, lushly landscaped spot on the west (left) side of the house and can be accessed by stairs from the house or the entrance area.

The four oversize bedrooms (305 sq/ft) are all located to insure excellent privacy from each other. The upper level east (right) bedroom has a king bed while the other three bedrooms have twin beds that convert to kings. The two lower level bedrooms are accessed by exterior stairs from the upper deck or the pool deck. Each bedroom has a lovely 150 sq ft fully screened porch with wicker furniture, and each bedroom has a telephone and a tiled bath and shower.

The great room has a cathedral ceiling, handsome stonework, tiled floors, and a 30 x 8 foot wall of screened glass doors that offer marvelous views from everywhere in the room. The living area is furnished with comfortable wicker and rattan furniture, a cable TV/DVD, a stereo CD and wireless internet. The interior dining table and the dining table on the upper deck both seat 6-8. There is also a table and chairs on the pool deck.

The kitchen is in the rear of the great room but it also shares the gorgeous view. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a refrigerator, gas range, dishwasher and microwave oven. In the back of the kitchen there is a pantry and a washer/dryer and a gas grill is on the upper deck.

Note: A 4 wheel drive vehicle is advisable for Anole. The Anole neighborhood roads are unpaved, and the road conditions vary dependent on the weather. The roads are not dangerous, but can be bumpy due to periods of heavy rainfall during rainy season.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this villa in 1991

Why Owner/Property Manager chose USVI/St. John

If you stay at Anole you’ll understand why we chose this neighborhood and this particular lot. To make a long story short, we wanted to be in the national park and we also wanted a location that was ultra private, peaceful and quiet. We’ve been told by the St. John real estate pros that this is one of St. John’s most private homes. Anole isn’t in the middle of nowhere, it just feels that way. We do have neighbors, but the thick tropical forest prevents anyone from seeing you, or from you seeing anything other than green forests, blue skies and turquoise seas. This is, and will forever remain, a natural and exceedingly beautiful view. As you enter Anole, a 30’ wide, 8’ tall wall of glass reveals the view that defines this villa and makes it a beautiful and exhilarating vacation home. At night the only lights visible are a sparse string of lights on the distant island of Jost Van Dyke, and the glow of lights from Cane Garden Bay on Tortola. The stargazing is excellent, and the sensation of being on a tropical island, seemingly removed from civilization, is wonderful.

What makes this villa unique

Once we secured this ultra private lot to build on, we then continued our focus on privacy into the design of the villa. We placed the bedrooms on opposite sides of the villa, and with two up and two down, each bedroom remains exceptionally private and quiet. We also did something different in designing the bedrooms. First, we went big, the standard bedroom is 150 sq/ft and we doubled the size to 305 sq/ft. Second, we used almost half of each bedroom’s space to create a screened in porch that is a natural extension of the bedroom. If you like to read or relax in a perfect setting surrounded by the sounds of the tropics, you’ll love these romantic and cozy bedroom porches. This is a feature that our real estate guy said was unique to Anole. The clothing optional privacy at the pool is a rarity, although Anole does share this feature with a few other villas. The view is also a fascinating delight; the sea constantly changes colors and textures as the sun rises and cloud shadows scurry across Cinnamon Bay. It never fails to capture your attention and you are constantly saying to anyone nearby, “aren’t those colors just beautiful?”

WOW! What a setting!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on St John for many years because we love everything about this beautiful island. Despite more than 7 trips to St John we have never stayed anywhere on the North Shore, mostly because it is out of our price range. Anole was priced below other Cinnamon Bay homes, and for the six of us the price was quite reasonable, so we gave it a try and what a good decision that was! Usually when we pay less you get less, but not with this home. The view was better than the photos show and the serenity and privacy was the best we have ever experienced, other than on a sail boat far off the coast. I don't think I have ever been more relaxed and refreshed after a vacation. As for the house it had everything we needed. Especially the bedrooms with their screened in sitting areas. It was so peaceful and relaxing that some days we never left the house. Cruz Bay has a lot of superb restaurants but dining on Anoles deck was our favorite. What a total memorizing view this home has! If you have never stayed on the North Shore of St John I highly recommend Anole for an affordable and heavenly North Shore vacation.
