Peaceful Cottages

St. John US Virgin Islands

Rain forest accommodations on the mountains of St. John Island, located on the edge of the national park and less than 10 minutes drive from Cruz Bay and the famous Caribbean beaches.

About Our Accommodations

These accommodations location is a very private and fenced-in cul-de-sac on Gift Hill, which is 5-minute drive from Cruz Bay and around a 10-minute drive to the famous North Shore beaches. So conveniently located insofar as shopping, restaurants and entertainment on St John.

The cottage is designed simply to create a Caribbean abode feel although inside is as if you were at home and very comfortable with all modern conveniences and finishes. However outside is finished with bright Caribbean colors and the garden is like a jungle with natural large tropical undergrowth and fruit trees like bananas, passion fruit, Papaya and guava trees and delights with the tropical night sounds with the sounds of crickets, frogs, geckos, Iguana, hermit crabs and scents of the rain forest.

After a day spent exploring the island’s treasures (the petroglyphs, the mill ruins, hiking trails, reefs and beaches) and experiencing myriad sun-drenched and water-quenched activities you’ll come back to a quiet, cool, and restful home-away-from-home accommodations.
