The name Peace and Plenty is an accurate description of the setting - plenty of peacefulness and tranquility and plenty of privacy. You are located 480 feet above Cinnamon Bay and the views of Jost Van Dyke in the distance and Whistling Cay, Mary Point and the National Park in the foreground are absolutely gorgeous. Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Bay lie below you and offer excellent swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing, sunning and stress free relaxation. It's a 10-15 minute drive from Cruz Bay and the last 1/2 mile is a bumpy dirt road intended to discourage tourists from exploring this quiet neighborhood.
Peace & Plenty is located in the exclusive Catherineberg neighborhood of St. John overlooking gorgeous Cinnamon Bay. This neighborhood is one of St. John's most beautiful and desirable neighborhoods. In this unspoiled setting in the midst of world-class National Park beaches, you're surrounded by a naturalist's world of sea, sky and pristine park lands. A short driving distance from Villa Peace & Plenty are Cinnamon Bay Beach, Hawk's Nest Beach, Trunk Bay Beach, Maho Beach, and Francis Bay Beach. If you value tranquility, natural beauty and the feeling of being alone, this is heaven on an island.
Peace and Plenty is the 4th from the last villa on a dead end road named Wattapama Road, ensuring very little traffic and superb privacy. The dense tropical forest around you ensures that you can neither see, nor be seen by neighboring villas. Catherineberg is also one of St. John's safest neighborhoods.
As for the villa itself, the photos leave no doubt that Peace and Plenty is a spacious, beautiful, and very comfortable luxury villa. Everything about this villa is appealing; from the bedrooms to the great room to the outdoor living area, this is a very tasteful home with a distinct sense of island elegance. Peace and Plenty is an excellent vacation home for families or for 1-4 couples, and this romantic and beautiful setting is also well suited for honeymooners and lovers. If your travel plans include more than 8 people, Peace and Plenty together with Cinnamon Bay Estate, offers two stunning world-class villas within walking distance of each other.
Kitchen: The gorgeous kitchen is defined by granite, mahogany, and lovely views seen through arched windows that run the length of the kitchen. A granite and mahogany bar/counter that seats 4 separates the kitchen from the living room. Behind the bar is a gourmet kitchen with custom built mahogany cabinets, granite countertops, a 5-burner gas stove and oven, large refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, icemaker, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, and abundant cookware and dinnerware. A half moon bar with bar chairs is off the kitchen and opens to the pool deck through a window.
Interior Living Room: You enter the 600 sq.ft great room through screened sliding pocket doors. The great room has a handsome, classic Caribbean look with tiled floors, beamed cathedral ceilings with track lighting, and custom built mahogany furniture and cabinets. A 42-inch cable HD plasma TV/DVD and stereo/CD provide the electronic entertainment.
Outdoor living area: One of the most popular design features in an island home is a lanai, such as that found in the very popular villa Rapture. Peace and Plenty takes great advantage of its lovely setting with its comfortable 500 sq.ft lanai. This is more than a deck with furniture; it is an outdoor living area with comfortable furniture and a 10 person dining table that sit under a large gazebo that protects you from the sun and the occasion island shower. From the lanai you look through columned arches at the beautiful views of Jost Van Dyke and the unspoiled National Park. The half bath is just off the lanai, as is the gas grill.
Bedrooms: The four air conditioned bedrooms are equal in size, about 225 sq.ft and each includes a private balcony or deck and an elegant granite and mahogany tiled bath. All the bedrooms include custom built mahogany 4-poster king beds that look out at the romantic views.

Breathtaking views! This home was a perfect retreat for 3-4 couples. It contained every amenity imaginable, and afforded the luxury of seclusion. The roadway leading to the house was harrowing at times, but at the same time added to the ambiance of the residence. We loved it, and are considering returning with our children and grandchildren. Peace and Plenty did not disappoint!
There was nothing not to love about this place. It's gorgeous and comfortable and extremely well-kept. One immediately feels at home and relaxed. Everything we needed was provided by the owners. The villa's layout is particularly attractive in that the bedrooms are separated from the entertainment areas for the ultimate in privacy.
Beautiful home, gorgeous views, comfortable beds, easy access to beaches and all the amenities you need. This house perfectly accommodated 4 couples for a fabulous 5 day trip. We highly recommend taking the trail from Cinnamon Bay to Little Cinnamon Bay for your own private and pristine beach although we enjoyed Cinnamon Bay as well. We also recommend visiting Waterlemon Cay for great snorkeling.
What can I say...Peace and Plenty is exactly what you get when you stay there. This was my second time to stay at Peace and Plenty in St. John. St. John's is an amazing island with endless ocean bays that take your breath away. The people there are super friendly and after a week there you never want to return. The only way to make a trip to St. John even better is with a stay at Peace and Plenty. Every room is spectacular and has it's own entry and bath. The kitchen, living room, and lanai are amazing. To top it all off you have your very own pool to come home to and relax in after a day of sight seeing. The grounds are amazing. They have lemon, lime, banana and mango trees as well as every flower imaginable. It is truly a sight to behold. It is the perfect place for 4 couples to share. Although it is great for families too. The house is about 10 minutes from Cruz Bay. Up a rocky road so you need a jeep to get there. The ride is rocky but that was part of the charm. It feels very secluded but there are neighbors around just spread out just right. The property management team is excellent as well. Tommy who meets you and goes over everything is very nice. I will definitely be back again for a third stay. I love St. John and I can't imagine staying any where else while I am there.
This was our 3rd visit to Peace and Plenty. We just keep coming back because it's such a wonderful place. The floor plan is great because you can spend as much time outside as you like, including meals...Or you can go to your room for plenty of privacy. The rooms are separated enough so no one disturbs each other. The view is absolutely amazing and there is no noise from the neighbors. They're just too far away to hear anything. The management co. took very good care of us and was very responsive if we needed anything. I would recommend this place to anyone. I really felt like I could relax completely or crank up the music and dance (which I did). :)
The view overlooking Cinnamon Bay is stunning. The grounds are filled with beautiful flowers including blooming Orchids. The home is gorgeous and the pool and outdoor patio/dining area overlooking Cinnamon Bay are a perfect place to entertain. Hiking from the house is excellent and includes trails in the National Park! I hope to visit again and I highly recommend Peace and Plenty!
