Description

Like its neighboring villa, Peace and Plenty, Cinnamon Ridge is an expanded design that extends more than 150 feet from the house to the pool deck. All the living areas and bedrooms are under one roof, with the large pool and sundeck on the west (sunny) side of the villa in an ultra private location.

You approach the house from below and drive up to the parking area on the upper level of this 2-level villa. A tropical walkway leads to the main entrance which opens to the great room that contains the living, dining and kitchen areas. There are two bedroom/baths on the upper level on either side of the great room, and three more bedroom/baths on the lower level which is accessed by interior and exterior stairs. Both the upper and lower levels have decks that run the entire length of the house, while on the west side of the villa a large sundeck, waterfall, lagoon pool and hot tub is bordered by lush tropical gardens.

Location

Cinnamon Ridge is located 530 feet above the white sands of Cinnamon Bay, on St. John’s fabulous north shore. This neighborhood is much like Peter Bay and is one of St. John’s most beautiful and desirable settings. In this unspoiled setting in the midst of the National Park you’re surrounded by a naturalist’s world of sea, sky and pristine park lands. To get to Cinnamon Ridge you drive past your neighbors on Watapalma Road, Peace and Plenty and Anole.

Cinnamon Ridge is the last home on this dead end road, and thanks to the private driveway, there is no drive by or turn around traffic (none). Even by St. John’s high standards, this is an unusually peaceful, quiet and private location. The 200 degree view from every room is absolutely lovely and includes Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, a dozen other islands, turquoise seas and powder white sand beaches. Cinnamon Bay, Trunk Bay and Jumbie Bay lie below you and offer what travel writers have described as some of the world’s finest swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and beaching.

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 exploring your quiet neighborhood. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is necessary as local taxi service is not available in this neighborhood.

Caribbean Villa Comments

  • Caribbean Villas Comments:

    St. John is blessed with many lovely villas in picturesque locations, but this National Park setting is the very essence of island splendor, with magnificent day and evening views, undisturbed privacy and total peace and quiet, yet you are only a 1/2 mile from one of the world's most beautiful beaches. If you value, natural beauty, tranquility and the feeling of being alone, this location is heaven on an island.

    The publishers of Caribbean Travel and Life were so impressed with Cinnamon Ridge that it was featured on the cover of an issue dedicated to the "Unspoiled Caribbean". They stated that this island home is a fine example of how the delicate beauty of nature and the comforts of a multi-million home can be woven into the same setting, without compromising either.

    The spacious deck with its pool, hot tub, waterfall, tropical gardens and spectacular views provides a wonderful outdoor living area, while the well furnished house provides relaxing indoor comfort. This is an excellent vacation home for families, or for 1-5 couples or small business meetings, and this romantic and beautiful setting is also well suited for honeymooners and lovers. If your travel plans include more than 10 people, your neighbors, (Cinnamon Bay Estates, Anole, and Peace and Plenty) are all premiere villas that are within a 2-3 minute walking distance.

    NOTE: Cinnamon Ridge has a resident outdoor cat that visits the property.

    Note: A 4 wheel drive vehicle is advisable for Cinnamon Ridge. The Cinnamon Ridge 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.

  • Guest Comments:

    - Thank you! We had a great time, as usual, and found the house to be even better then the picutures. Our only moment of doubt was the impressive driveway, which we mastered after a few days!!
    - The Cinnamon Ridge setting was very beautiful and my party had a wonderful time!
    - Thanks again for a great stay at Cinnamon Ridge. The villa is older but it still felt like a home-away-from-home!
    - We just returned home for a week at Cinnamon Ridge. We were so fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at such an amazing place. The house exceeded our expectations. From the beautiful views to the furniture, from the big beach towels to the kitchen appliances, everything was wonderful. The driveway was a little daunting but fortunately we had been on island several times prior and were somewhat used to the crazy driving conditions.
