PETER BAY BEACH HOUSE
St. John, USVI
3 Bedrooms with Bathrooms En Suite (Sleeps up to 8)
This fantastic house is one of the few properties on beautiful St. John directly on the beach. Everything about Peter Bay Beach House is sublime - from its privacy to its sumptuous décor to its location in the most desirable area of the island, Lower Peter Bay. Once through the enclave’s gate, a private road winds down a hill to this lovely house, which sits on a postcard-perfect white sand beach fringed with palms and seagrapes.
Large entrance doors open to a lushly planted courtyard with arched columns framing the 12' x 40' lap pool and the dazzling view across Drake’s Channel to Jost van Dyke and Tortola. To the left is the main house with a wraparound columned porch, indoor and outdoor sitting and dining areas and the master bedroom, which encompasses the entire second floor. This suite was designed to perfection with dressing and massage rooms, an outdoor shower, a balcony with views of Cinnamon Bay Beach and a raised bed to maximize the view. Downstairs are a large, comfy living room, dining room, office and kitchen. On the right side of the courtyard is a two-story guesthouse with two large, beautifully appointed bedrooms that each has a private terrace.
Other features of this wonderful house include a bougainvillea-covered serpentine wall surrounding a smaller courtyard garden with a dining area and gas grill, a charming and romantic Balinese bed draped with filmy mosquito netting that sits almost at the water’s edge and a waterfall that cascades through rocks and foliage into a goldfish pool below. There’s even good snorkeling just down the beach off the point. Peter Bay Beach House is island living at its best and perfect for a honeymoon, a family or a group of friends.
