Island Stones Catherineberg: 6 bdrm Cinnamon Bay Beach


 

Cinnamon Bay Beach, Trunk Bay Beach, Maho and Francis beaches, and Hawksnest Beach.

All your favorite beaches near Island Stones Catherineberg rental villa by owner. Old St John is still found in one place, Catherineberg. Away from road noise you will smell the Bay Rum trees, watch the hummingbirds, feel the constant tradewind breeze, and stare in awe at the truly spectacular views. For those of us that know the island well this is where you can enjoy the very best St John villa rental by owner and truly feel paradise.

On your way to Island Stones and driving past Catherineberg’s beautiful historic sugar mill ruins

you begin to sense a peacefulness that only being there can describe. The lucky few that have vacation home villas in this USVI National Park will be very hard to spot due to the lush tropical vegetation and large spacious property.

Enter through Island Stones gate down the long easy lane lined with native stone walls and gorgeous tropical fauna.

The best surprise happens as you enter the main level pool and bar deck. The views out over the Caribbean Isles and the sense of calm that rushes over me every time I go there are truly indescribable. I encourage you to read our reviews for a better sense of what our guests have to say in their own words. Our photos are good but while I have seen villas where photos oversell something, in the case of Island Stones we can simply not photograph what you will see and feel when you get there. I have been to St John well over 100 times now. I never ever get used to the experience of Island Stones.

The construction of Island Stones Rental by owner Villa on st johns

:began in the 1960’s. Back then St John was even more quiet and quaint than today. Unlike Island Stones today, most villas were very simple and did not have amenities such as ac or even pools. However, due to the location of Island Stones right smack in the Virgin Islands trade wind breezes and so close to the most beautiful beaches on the planet (more about these below), ac and pools were not needed anyway.

St John Villa Rental by owner
Island Stones is equipped with 6 private bedrooms, all with private showers.

Some of the showers and decks look down to Cinnamon and Francis beaches.

  • Walk the world famous beaches.
  • Go sailing,
  • snorkeling,
  • or sunbathing.
  • For that occasional rainy day,
    • there is a large game room containing:
      • a pool table,
      • foosball table,
      • Wii,
      • Xbox,
      • dart board,
      • and a bar.
    • and an exercise room equiped with:
      • a multi-gym,
      • dumbbells,
      • treadmill,
      • and an elliptical trainer.
There are many building artifacts found around this villa.

I can tell that some of the very large oversized brick and corner coral pieces date back to the days of St John sugar mills. Materials were sometimes used from the ballasts of ships coming to the island and somehow found their way into the original construction of Island Stones. Today, Island Stones retains its Old St John feel. Much of the villas retaining walls and buildings are made with the same technique used during the construction of the sugar mills.

An excursion to Cruz Bay takes under ten minutes.

Often guests tell us that even when there are 12 of them, there are numerous places to get together and party yet have tons of privacy.

  • There is a Pool deck with covered bar and grill.
  • A Great Room,
  • a game room,
  • and leeward terraces all with plenty of seating:
    • with sofas,
    • chaise lounges,
    • and tables for large groups.

There’s plenty of fun to be had at night on St John. Sometimes we head over to Coral Bay. An easy ride from Island Stones, you can be at Skinny Legs in no time. Enjoy the photos and live webcam looking over Cinnamon Bay to the Caribbean Isles and beaches beyond. Look over the floor plans and lists of amenities. I look forward to hearing from you and being our guests at Island Stones St John home rental by owner. The private luxury villa for rent near St John’s Cinnamon Bay Beach in the middle of the VI National Park.

Perfect villa for a perfect family vacation
" We loved the top-of-the-mountain isolation. "
Rating: 5
The excellent layout provides large separate areas for individual privacy and full-family partying. Bedrooms have in- and out-door (loved it) showers; most have private decks with spectacular views over St John's north shore and the British Virgin Islands. We enjoyed the beautiful private gardens with flowers everywhere. The serene setting is completely private: no houses or people ever seen. The website only hints at the beauty and fun of the infinity pool and spacious deck. The well maintained freshwater pool is crystal clear, with an unusually attractive design. You and your kids will love it non-stop. All amenities are top-of-line. We relished the high-performance outdoor grill sited conveniently just behind the large outdoor wet-bar. A/C is available throughout, but pleasant evening breezes discourage use. We preferred the atmosphere and sounds of the outdoor wilderness. We much appreciated the top-of-the-line appliances: clothes washer/dryer, dishwasher, side-by-side freezer/refrigerator. WiFi operated well. An ample supply of excellent snorkeling gear and great canvas beach chairs were available. The property management company for Island Stones is very friendly and attentive to your every need. An example: We gently complained of the absence of Champagne glasses—seriously compromising our new routine of relaxing on the deck while drinking in the grandeur of the Caribbean islands arrayed on the horizon. A brand new set of 8 etched crystal flutes appeared next day. After a joyous week at Island Stones, everyone wants to return. When reviewing the website; please believe it and much more! The reality is awesome. The view from the pool deck is transfixing—best on St John, with occasional full-sky rainbows..

Outstanding is an understatement! Once again we have had the chance of staying in St John's best location.

We are back in the snowy Northeast and already planning next year as my new screen saver is the fabulous view from the pool/patio area. Thanks again John & Vicky for your warm hospitality and the use of your gorgeous home. My family has stayed at Island Stones 5 times and its getting better every time. John the owner bent over backwards again to make sure we were comfortable and the house was prepared with the utmost attention to details.

A week in paradise My husband & I just spent a wonderful week in st John at Island Stones Villa.
" Island Stones has to be one of the nicest villas on the island, we would love to stay there again!! "

I loved that all of the bathrooms also offered an outside shower option. I enjoyed the weight room & actually exercised a few days during our stay. It was so nice to come inside to air conditioning in all of the rooms. The view from the villa is breathtaking!! I spent most of my time lounging at the amazing pool and listening to music from the bar area. We also enjoyed the privacy. That was our 5th visit to St. John and Island stones is amazing and I would love to go back. The villa is perfect for families or a group of friends! The decor made you feel like you were in a tropical oasis.

You can't see any homes from this vantage - just the trees in the National Park and beautiful Caribbean sea! The villa is well (and tastefully) appointed yet comfortable. The layout worked well for gathering as a group or breaking off into separate quarters. First off the view from the pool deck and top level of the villa are beyond description - what an incredible way to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or happy hour drink at the outdoor bar!
