Perched on the hillside 30 yards above pristine Peter Bay Beach in the heart of the Virgin Islands National Park, the suite boasts one of the most idyllic locations on all of St. John. Sugar white sand beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters are at your doorstep from this private one and a half acre beachfront property. The Caribbean views from Peter Bay beyond Whistling Key to Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands are simply magnificent.
This private 1 bedroom suite features fantastic ocean views from all principal rooms, a 4 poster mahogany bed in the AC’d bedroom, a full modern kitchen and a large outdoor tiled deck complete with hammock, dining area and barbeque. The suite consists of the lower portion of a traditional Caribbean home and possesses an authentic old world tropical feel, surrounded by lush gardens and emerald green hills. The property owners live onsite in the completely separate upper portion of the house and are available to assist with anything you may require. Private beach chairs and snorkel gear are provided for your use down at Peter Bay Beach, which is accessed via a private, paved path on the property. There is excellent snorkeling at the coral reef right in front of the house. During the day, soak up the sun, sand and waves from this very private beachfront location. At night, listen to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach and the tree frogs’ serenade while gazing at the bounty of bright stars in the sky. Relax at this nature lover’s paradise.

Sports & Adventure Activities
The pictures don't lie!
If you are looking for a relaxing, picture perfect getaway, this is it. This was our first trip to St. John and we checked out pretty much every inch of the island by land and by boat, and could not find another spot that we would have preferred. The view is amazing and when we were at the house, spent most of our time on the comfy couch on the deck taking it in. The house is well stocked with everything you need, including a great gas grill, making it easy to have a private dinner with one of the best views on the island. We definitely took advantage of the snorkel gear for use at our basically private beach, as well as some of the other great beaches on the island. No TV, but the WIFI was very reliable for streaming movies in the evening.
The location is great…quiet and away from it all, but only about 15 minutes from Cruz Bay, and close to several beaches. Ideal. We took the Owner’s advice on renting from Conrad Sutton Car Rental, which was a life saver as we could park there when in town. They also gave us spot on recommendations for hikes and dinners out.
Based on the above, this place is totally 5 stars and a great value. The house itself has more of a cottage feel than 5 star luxury, but it is clean, comfortable, well stocked and had everything we needed for a great stay!
Perfection in every way
This is an absolute gem. My husband & I had a perfect week (despite slightly imperfect weather to start with) relaxing, swimming, snorkeling & generally exploring the beautiful beaches & coves right on our doorstep. David & Denise were excellent hosts - accommodating, responsive & helpful. The apartment was clean, comfortable & well-equipped with just about everything you could think of. The location is phenomenal, in a totally dreamy neighbourhood (but still very secluded) with views & easy access to idyllic beaches. We managed perfectly well without a car for a week; if we had another week there & wanted to do more island exploring we might have rented a car, but it certainly isn't a necessity. We would recommend enjoying the fabulous seclusion of Peter Bay, swimming over to Little Cinnamon & exploring the small submerged plane wreck, snorkeling at Maho Bay & swimming with sea turtles. We will definitely be back!
Wonderful Week on Peter Bay
Simple, neat, clean, and everything you might need for a wonderful week on St. John! Website photos and details accurately represent this property. Having typically stayed at large resorts, we found this experience very private, peaceful, and relaxing. As two 66 year olds in relatively good shape, we found the path to the beautiful beach to be no problem. We would stay at Suite On The Beach again in a heartbeat! Thank you Denise and David!
Absolutely Amazing - Perfect Honeymoon!
Came for the second week of our honeymoon - had an amazing time. Perfect location, easy to get to any north shore beach. David and Denise were more than accommodating, and extremely helpful with any questions we had. The beach was beautiful – we had it to ourselves for the first 4 days of our stay. You are able to snorkle right off the beach, and can reach the nearby reef in less than 5 minutes. We tried to see as many beaches as possible on the island, and highly recommend some of the more remote beaches – Salt Pond was a favorite. Hiking was great, and the food was spot on. We made a few meals at the house, as it had everything you need to cook (and grill). Already looking for some time next year to return!
A perfect stay in paradise
I really can't say enough good things about the suite on the beach, at Peter Bay! My wife and I just spent a week in the suite, celebrating our 15th anniversary. Everything was really was perfect. The view really can't be expressed though picture, and even on the 7th morning, we we're still stunned to look our over Peter Bay. The suite is well stocked with everything you might need. There's an abundance of clean towels, kitchenware, snorkel gear, and lots of thoughtful touches. David was a wonderful host, and always had excellent suggestions of places to explore and visit, and places to eat, and was an all-around laid back and good guy. The private beach was absolutely beautiful, and always empty. It was an easy walk/swim to little Cinnamon Beach, which was larger and also stunning. The suite was very comfortable, and the AC in the bedroom works perfectly. Each evening we enjoyed listening to the tree frogs, and there's nothing quite like a midnight swim under a full moon, in the clearest waters imaginable. I would highly suggest this location to anyone looking for a relaxing and beautiful setting, away from the bustle of Cruz Bay!
Nice Modest Beach Home
The only affordable place to stay on the most prestigious bay on St. John - Peter Bay. This home is surrounded by the an incredible beach on the island along with some of the most beautiful and luxurious homes on the island. The beach is almost private - sharing with just a few other homes. There are good reefs for snorkeling on each side of the beach. The lower level suite is clean and quaint. The path down to the beach is steep - 8 floors, but doable for able bodied people. We did not rent a car - taxis were really easy to come by on the road that goes into town. There is a grill at the suite that we did not use, but really should have during our stay. Denise and David are excellent, really not in your way unless we asked for some help and they were very helpful in answering our questions or directing our way. The bay is quiet, yet due to the wind direction and the bay shape, you can hear other houses nearby at night, especially if there is a loud gathering, but the ocean sounds eventually drown those out. We would stay again if it was just the two of us on St. John in the future!
One of the most idyllic locations on all of St. John, the gated community of Lower Peter Bay is St. John’s most prestigious neighborhood, boasting numerous multi-million dollar world class luxury homes and vacation rentals.

The restaurants, shopping and nightlife of Cruz Bay are all within 15 minutes drive away.
