Areca Peter Bay is named after the areca palm that produces seeds traditionally thought to have a calming effect when chewed. But you won't need to risk this traditional remedy for stress. Areca Peter Bay's privacy, its incredible 180 degree views of the Caribbean from St Thomas to Tortola and the many cays and small islands in between, its professional tropical landscaping, extensive outdoor living spaces and air conditioned interior luxury will calm even the most jangled nerves.
The villa is located in exclusive Upper Peter Bay and nestled between famous Trunk and Cinnamon Bay beaches. Areca villa guests have access to private Peter Bay beach, which is a few minutes drive or hillside walk down the private paved road. Parking is provided at the head of the beach walk.
The villa is unique in that it is situated on over 1 acre and is bordered by National Park to the east, and to the west, a long, gated, expertly landscaped drive provides complete privacy as well. It is truly a special and unique spot for your Caribbean dream vacation.
All five en suite king bedrooms can be rented together, or the Main House (3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths) can be rented alone. The Guest House is never rented separately from the Main House, so every group is assured of complete privacy and exclusive use of all exterior spaces.

My husband and I completed construction on our Peter Bay Villa in 2009. This photo was taken early on during construction. My husband's law practice is on St Thomas where we live. I manage the villa--greeting each group of guests and orienting them to the villa and the area and continuing to be available throughout your stay if the need arises.
Diana Hall purchased this villa in 2009
My husband and I built the villa on property in Peter Bay that has been in his family for several generations. We felt very blessed to have such a lovely spot to build on and put a lot of personal energy and creativity into building the home. We currently live on St Thomas but will eventually retire to St John.
The outdoor living in such an incredible location coupled with all the indoor comforts make staying here peaceful and relaxing. Between the architecture, the landscaping, and the view, you never run out of beautiful things to look at. And the north shore beaches are minutes away!
"This is the most lovely home and the most spectacular views my family has ever experienced"
I was so impressed with our stay at Areca. The view was stunning and we enjoyed every evening out on the veranda overlooking the ocean. Everything that you would expect from a luxury villa was present. Need i say more?
Diana was very helpful and responsive. The service was excellent. During our stay, the grill died. The very next day (which was a Sunday), we had a new grill by 1 pm without any requests/compliants on my part. This is St. John. They had to get a grill in St. Thomas, bring it over and put it together and did so by 1 pm. I appreciated the service and felt confident that she would be responsive to any request or emergency.
Villa is 10-15 minute ride to Cruz Bay and about 5 minutes from Trunk Bay. Peter Bay beach is very nice and wasnt used much during our stay. I highly recommend this villa
My family and I just came back from a week at Areca. After planning this trip for about a year, I was a bit nervous worrying if I was expecting too much or if the place could possibly be as nice as it looked online. We arrived after a long day of travelling, 10 of us, including 2 little ones. We met Diana at the car barge and she escorted us to the villa. Truly, none of us could believe the impressive drive to Areca and upon arrival, we were in awe of the spectacular views and the home which we would be calling ours for the week. It is spacious, comfortable, has lots of privacy and every amenity you could want. It is impossible to mention all the things we loved as it provided all of us beautiful accommodations, gorgeous pool, outstanding outside entertaining area, with grill, bar and comfy seating to have our evening cocktails and dinner. Areca is a perfect location...minutes to gorgeous North Shore beaches and 15 minutes to town. We ate out a few nights, hiked, checked out a few local late afternoon happy hours and were always happy to get back to Areca. Never will you tire of the views! The pool is wonderful, and several afternoons we just stayed put in relaxed, swam and dozed by the pool...There are lots of beach chairs, coolers, towels for your treks to the beaches. The kitchen had every thing you needed....extremely well equipped. Bathrooms and bedrooms very comfortable and private. Several days we hiked down to lower Peter Bay to the beach...great workout, especially on the way back! We will definitely be back to Areca....a lovely home and a very special place!!!
Our adult children, spouses and significant others vacationed at Areca (eight of us) and it is difficult to put into words HOW wonderful our stay at Areca was!! We all needed to get away from it all and relax and total relaxation is what we got! The villa is absolutely beautiful with all the amenties you can ask for. The home and guest house and beautifully designed with large bedrooms and bathrooms, private balconies, and the outside veranda on the main house is the perfect spot for morning coffee and more than 180 degree views of the Caribbean. Our guys went deep sea fishing and caught Mahi Mahi and tuna which we ended up grilling for dinner. Eating in the dining area outside made it so enjoyable. The turquoise waters and white beaches lay just below the shoreline and if relaxing there isn't enough, the infinity pool, with chaise lounges and a hammock will certainly do the trick! Even tho' we had a few overcast days and a little rain, the warm trade wind breezes made those days equally enjoyable and everyone had a turn napping in the hammock. There are beautiful tropical plants all around the house and grounds and extremely private. Only the sound of the waves from the ocean and the tropical birds could be heard. Diana and Sam were so wonderful to deal with as well. Not having been to the islands, I had a million questions to ask before embarking on our trip and Diana was always quick to respond with very helpful information. Sam greeted us at the ferry dock and drove us to the villa, explaining everything about Areca and making us feel comfortable from the very start. We loved it at Areca and were actually depressed when we had to leave. You will NOT be disappointed with anything at Areca! It truly IS paradise. Next visit will have to be for TWO weeks!!! Thanks Diana and Sam for sharing your beautiful home with us!!
For our first family visit to st John, we wanted a great villa to accommodate 7 adults and a baby. The owner, Diana, was so easy to work with and so quick to help and volunteer all sorts of good info.
She met us at the dock with the rental car keys and then took us for the orientation tour.
The drive to the villa is so gorgeous, we knew we were in for a great experience. Bur when we arrived to Areca, we were just thrilled with what we found. That view(s )!!! The pool is beautiful and a nice size and gets sun all day! We loved sitting outside in the comfy lounge chairs or on the pool floats or pool bench watching the view. The interior of the villa is quality everywhere and classic good taste. A fully outfitted kitchen was used a lot, and we cooked out on the grill several nights in order to eat at the big table with the best view on the island. An outside ice maker , fridge and sink were handy. The furniture in the great room was the most comfy of any villa I have ever been in! Then, we had the same furniture upstairs in the smaller living area! Beds were amazing with wonderful linens and pillows! Wish I had the same!
The master was so big and spacious ( and bath and closet huge, also) with a big balcony and more comfy lounging area and VIEW! There is a nice king guest room upstairs, also, with balcony. The 3rd king guest room is on the main level, and was good for the person with a bad knee not to have to do stairs. The pool house has the other 2 bedrooms, and we only used the upstairs one ( only because of that upper view)! It is nice with a swell outdoor shower ( did I mention the view?) and plenty of room for the baby bed ( christys provisioning) , tho the villa has a nice pak n play we used, too.
They have plenty of pool floats and chairs -- ice chests to take to the beach, gobs of nice beach towels and washer dryer. The hammock on the pool deck was a great addition. They have landscaped this area so that you know you are in a tropical and private paradise. I really appreciated that they leave some kitchen necessities as opposed to cleaning out everything. We had a variety of liquor, some cokes and beers, paper goods of every kind ,spices, oils , vinegars, coffee, teas, sweeteners, etc
You will not want to leave!!
It was just perfect for our needs ( and wants!).
The beautiful north shore beaches are right below !
Exceeded our expectations and much better than pics show!!
You will have a wonderful vacation at Areca...so don't hesitate to book this !
We stayed at the Areca Villa the first week of December of 2011. It was a wonderful experience. There was not a bad view from any room of the villa. We spent a lot of time taking in the majestic views from the infinity pool and from the outside living areas. It was a peaceful experience due to the views, comfort, and privacy after spend the day exploring the different beaches.
Diana was a great host. She helped a great deal before the trip and during the trip. She proved to be a great resource in making suggestions in planning the trip. She also sent a few e-mails to check in during our stay. She was accessible while we were at the villa incase there was anything she could do to make the stay more enjoyable.
Overall this was a great vacation due to Diana's hospitality and the magnificent villa.
