Two self-contained suites with separate private entrances provide an intimate experience for a couple or, when both suites are rented together, the right mix of privacy and proximity for friends. There are also sleeper sofas on both levels to accommodate additional guests.
The 1,000 square foot suites (the lower suite is slightly larger with a full size kitchen) boast every comfort, including separate living rooms, air-conditioned bedrooms with King sized beds, spacious bathrooms, ceiling fans, fully appointed kitchens and outdoor grills.
Each has a private terrace and hot tub with breathtaking views across Cinnamon, Francis and Maho Bays, toward Jost Van Dyke and Tortola.
Gatehouse embodies casual elegance in a whimsical island atmosphere. Stone from all three U.S. Virgin Islands, coral tile from the Yucatan, commissioned stained-glass windows, iron gates, antique bricks and exotic Brazilian hardwoods combine to create an exquisite accommodation, in form reminiscent of the 18th Century Danish sugar mill ruins that still dot the island.
The beach at Peter Bay is as pristine as any along St. John's North Shore. Because it is private, it has the added advantage of having a truly untouched, "virgin" quality. If you prefer a more "full service" experience, Gatehouse is nestled between two of the world's most famous beach destinations, Trunk Bay to the west and Cinnamon Bay to the east.
Gatehouse is truly in the perfect location to enjoy all that St. John has to offer, from Cruz Bay, a mere seven minute ride away, to Coral Bay, only a little bit further. And all of the National Park beaches and most of the Park's hiking trails are closer still.
Come and experience the best of the Caribbean - Gatehouse at Peter Bay. Completely refurbished and renovated in 2005, it is one of the few places in the world where you can still enjoy the elegance, serenity and unspoiled beauty of a bygone era.
We recently rented the Peter Bay Gatehouse in lovely St. John. Tracie and I were married on Hawksnest Beach and it was beautiful. The villa was great and the view spectacular. The staff (especially Kellie) was very accommodating when we had a couple of minor issues which were somewhat our fault due to not knowing the villa. The staff member (can't remember her name Sorry) that met us at the ferry was very nice and went out of her way to accommodate us because we were late due to wedding plans, etc) The hot tub, grill and laundry room were nice perks. I will not pack as much next time LOL. Next time we will probable bring another couple or two and will use Destination St John again for a larger villa. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
