The sun comes up over the mountain and glows on Cinnamon Bay and Peter Bay, a mesmerizing, mystical moment in St John.
But it’s nothing unusual.
It’s every sunrise at the Cliffhouse in St John.
But the daily arrival of the sun is not the only reason why Cliffhouse is one of the hottest villas on St John; back on the short term rental market, the 12,000-square-foot ultra-luxe villa is one of the most spectacular places to stay in the US Virgin Islands.
The recently-renovated four-bedroom retreat, with room for parties of up to ten guests, set in the exclusive community of Peter Bay.
That includes private beach access to Peter Bay Beach, the home of some of the best snorkeling and swimming in all of St John, a corner of the island where you’ll likely encounter turtles and stingrays.
Amenities also include A/C and TV with an array of Indonesian antiques, custom-designed furniture, fine linens and a pervasive island chic aesthetic.
There’s even an on-site, well-equipped gym.
But the biggest amenity is the setting: you’re up, 100 feet above sea level, overlooking astonishing scenery: St John beaches, the green hills of the British Virgin Islands; the Virgin Islands National Park and the Sir Francis Drake Channel.
It’s an almost hypnotizing scene, whether you’re having an in-villa massage or a rum cocktail on the deck — and not just at sunrise.
“This is one of the best villas on St John,” says Shanna Dickerson, owner of Blue Sky Luxury Travels, the exclusive rental agent for the property.
Reservations for the villa are now available starting New Year’s Eve week, Dec. 26 through Jan. 2.
