The uniqueness and beauty of Terrahawk is due primarily to its outstanding location. Terrahawk sits about 90 feet above Hawksnest Bay, along St. Johns fabulous north shore in the V.I. National Park. Hawksnest Bay has two superb beaches, and the beach below you is East Hawksnest, also called Gibney Beach. Because it has almost no parking, Gibney Beach is one of St. Johns least used, A-rated beaches, and you are one of about 5 homes that can walk to this white sand beach with turquoise waters, palm trees and, of course, no hotels or condos.
The other great features of this location are the gorgeous views and the pristine, naturalist setting. From your deck you view Hawksnest Bay in the foreground, with Lovango, Mingo, and Thatch Cays and the islands of Hans Lollick and St. Thomas in the background. The villa faces west which insures daytime sun on your deck, romantic sunsets, and the distant lights of St. Thomas at night.
Although the tranquility and unspoiled nature of this location makes it seems remote, it is an easy and very scenic 5-minute drive on paved roads into the shops and restaurants of Cruz Bay.

Caribbean Villa Comments
- Caribbean Villas Comments:
Terrahawks driveway is on the north shore road at Hawksnest Bay, across the road from the entrance to Gibney Beach. It is this exceptional location that makes Terrahawk a rare find among St. John villas. You are a short walk from one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean - Gibney Beach - a superb white beach bordered by coconut palms, calm turquoise waters and the green hills of the National Park. There is only parking for 5-6 cars at Gibney Beach and you cannot park on the road, so the beach remains pristine, beautiful and little used.
Terrahawks proximity to Hawksnest Bay is one great feature, and so is its location within the National Park. Terrahawk offers excellent tranquility and privacy, plus beautiful views of Hawksnest Bay and the Caribbean. As the day winds down you can look forward to a stunning sunset over St. Thomas. At night there is even less traffic on the north shore road and because you are surrounded by the Park, Terrahawk takes on a very peaceful, quiet, and seemingly remote character, but you are only 5-minutes from Cruz Bay.
If you are a beach lover or naturalist, this is an ideal spot. Outside your villa the beauties of nature surround you, but inside you are in a comfort zone with full screens and a/c in every room, plus satellite TV/DVD and a stereo/CD. This is a delightful villa for 2 couples or a small family and it is also a very private and romantic spot that is ideal for honeymooners or lovers celebrating a special occasion. Compared to other north shore homes, such as the villas that we offer at Peter Bay, Terrahawk is also very affordable.
