Limetree at Peter Bay is a luxury villa perched above the clear blue waters, in the exclusive neighborhood of Upper Peter Bay. The mountainside property, directly bordering 17,000 acres of National Park, has spectacular panoramic views of St. Thomas, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola and the surrounding cays, plus direct views of Trunk Bay, Peter Bay, Cinnamon Bay, Francis Bay and Drake’s Passage. There is no more stunning vista on St. John than that from Limetree.
Gentle mountain breezes in the tropical rain forest also make the property most pleasant at any time of the year. There is sunlight from dawn until dusk, with no mountains or hillsides to shade the property in the late day.
Breezy and open, the main floor flows beautifully from rich, spacious “3M” design (Mediterranean, Moroccan and Mexican) interiors to outdoor courtyards, a bridge and sun deck, terraces, and a hot tub and pool conveniently under the bridge at the entrance. Covered verandas wrap the villa on 3 levels, with plenty of seating, dining, and relaxing areas. The large, airy great room has plush furnishings, a breakfast bar, formal dining table and a complete gourmet Viking kitchen with an ice maker, built-in microwave, refrigerated drawer storage for beer and soda, massive refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, etc. Blend-tec blender is professional bar quality for those incredible frozen drinks, and a Nespresso machine you didn’t know how much you needed.
There are 4 bedrooms in the main villa. The master bedroom is on the top floor, with an adjoining media room and Mexican tile master bathroom with indoor/outdoor showers. Three bedrooms are on the lower level – all beautiful. Two share a jack and jill bathroom while the third “nanny room” has private access. And the gatehouse -nothing less than a love nest – Romeo and Juliet balcony included – perfect for a pair of lovebirds!
The pool and hot tub are delightful, with dramatic variable-colored lighting but so are the beaches! We also have plenty of parking (2 areas) on the property and easy turning-around. That’s really a rare find on St. John!
