From the moment you enter the front door of this lovely oceanview home, you'll feel glad you made the right choice for your vacation in the tropics. As you cross the tan, tiled floor, you'll notice the modern kitchen and the generous dining table. Passing through the French doors, you'll arrive on the tiled pool deck. There you can plop down on a padded, cushioned pool chair. Better yet, you can kick off your sandals, and pop right into the gorgeous pool!
Enjoy lounging under the Caribbean sun and the blue sky that's punctuated by fluffy, cottony clouds. Enjoy paddling around in the deepest pool on Saint John -- or lolling, half underwater on the huge steps in its corner. We know you'll appreciate the quiet, secluded privacy of your own little 'peace o' heaven.'
The large dining table and cushioned chairs out on the pool deck invite your party to dine outdoors after barbecuing on the gas grill. Then enjoy gazing at a flamboyant sunset from the porch swing.
After sunset, watch as Saint Thomas comes to life like a pulsing gem of light against the black velvety background under the moon and stars.
Inside, the cross ventilation through the doors and shutter windows invite the 200-foot-high hillside breezes (aided and abetted by the floor and ceiling fans). You're sure to get a cool restful sleep. (The installed split-unit A/Cs in each bedroom are hardly ever needed).
Well-stocked supermarkets, shopping, and nightlife abound close by. And the locals are as sweet as sugar. (Say 'Hello!' first, and enjoy big smiles in return!).
Imagine yourself in the various scenes shown here. Then phone us to reserve your favorite week(s) -- and to realize a memorable dream in your own little Peace o' Heaven.
Andrew, aka 'Captain Magic,' has loved the water and warm weather since he was a boy. While playing sax on many cruise ships, he visited many ports o' call and fell in love with St. John. After years of dreaming, he, and his life partner, Ruthellen (aka 'Dr. Cha Cha Cha') sailed from Florida in their 30' sailboat, arriving at their new home in 2001. Andrew and Ruthellen love sharing the pristine beauty and peacefulness of St. John with their guests.
Ruthellen & Andrew purchased this villa in 2000
For the beautiful views, especially the sunsets and the convenience to town and the beaches.
Excellent value for the price.
Tropical beach feel, but convenient to town and amenities. The swing on the pool deck facing west to St. Thomas and beyond, is the perfect place to hang out.
The entire living area is on one level, with only 1 step up to the porch and a low threshold. This feature and the open floor plan make it suitable for guests with disabilities and mobility issues. But, because the home is built into the natural incline, there is still a tree house feel and view from the deck.
We visited Peace O’Heaven for a special family celebration. After talking with Ruthellen, we knew this was the right place for our family. Her personal approach was appreciated and it removed every concern we may have had about renting. Once we arrived, Mark met us at the dock and took care of everything as promised, and more! He was excellent with every detail including recommending places to visit and eat. The house was clean and just as it appears in the listing. It had everything a family needed and more. The huge doors in every room leading to the pool deck let in the breeze and allowed us a wonderful view of the island. The pool was a hit for our 3 kids after a day of snorkeling. The house is located on the hillside so a jeep is recommended. It didn’t take long to find our way around and visit many of the beaches on the island. They are each unique and well worth the time to see. We can’t thank Ruthellen, Andrew and Mark enough for making it a perfect place to celebrate our special occasion. We have already recommended it to several of our friends; we just hope they take us with them when they visit! I’m sure we will be back in the future.
We chose Peace O Heaven as a place to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday with my son and his girlfriend. We absolutely enjoyed every aspect of the vacation. The house is just as it looks in the pictures and the hosts were wonderful. Would definetly return again.
Perfect location to town, we never walked since the drive was so quick, straight down the road and directly hits you to town. Views are pretty.
Property manager met us at the dock to take us to car rental then to the house to show us around. We would have preferred to do this on our own. After a long day of travel we didn't want to be told how to operate a tv. Having written directions would have worked. We wanted to be able to get car and head to grocery store to knock out that errand first, but had to follow him to the house then go back to do errands. Oh well, to each their own.
The house was lovely and serene. We were a little eerie at night since there are no glass windows (shutters only) and we've never stayed not within a condo unit when renting a vrbo property so the safety concern was higher yet nothing happened to cause us concern. Beware, roosters are all around and will make noise in night but that's part of the St. John experience. We would return to this property, it just took us awhile getting used to the noises around (neighbors underneath and behind home- but they were quiet and never bothered us). We were never there during the day since we were exploring the beach.
Would be perfect for a larger group, only two of us stayed during our time. I would recommend this property, just have to be okay being off on your own a bit.
My husband and I just returned from St. John and enjoyed a wonderful week at Peace o' Heaven. It is a great property with a stunning view both day and night. Eating pizza by the pool watching a beautiful sunset was one of our favorite nights. We rented a jeep and and went to five different bays and beaches and snorkeled at all of them, simply breathtaking! Around Coral Bay we ate at Skinny Legs and the Tourist Trap, fun local places with good food. Around Coral Bay we enjoyed High Tide Bar and Seafood Grill, Morgan's Mango and the Banana Deck.
Back to the property, the house was clean and the pool was great. The location was very good because it was close to town. The owners provided wonderful customer service and made everything very clear and easy. There was a gentleman who met us and took us to our rental company and then took us to the property and showed us around and explained everything. I would recommend Peace o' Heaven to anyone looking to go to St. John. We hope to go again some day.
My family and I stayed here for a wedding that was on the island and Peace O Heaven is the prefect place to stay! The view is great, the villa was spacious and just what you want when staying in a villa on a tropical island. Will definitely be returning.
My husband and I along with another couple stayed at Peace O' Heaven for 9 days in May, 2016. The villa was perfect for 2 couples. There are two master bedrooms with bathrooms. The beds are very comfortable and we all slept so well! We loved waking to the sounds of the island. The pool and deck area are fantastic! We loved having our own pool and enjoyed floating and cooling off after a day at the beach. We loved watching the sunsets and the lights of St. Thomas come alive at night! We even saw a rainbow! We used the nice grill several times. Having a washer and dryer was a plus!
The villa is very clean and well maintained. It is furnished with everything you need for a great vacation!
Ruthellen was a pleasure to work with and it was an easy rental process! Ken showed us to the villa. He was very welcoming, friendly and helpful! I highly recommend Peace O'Heaven and hope to return someday!
We had a wonderful five-day stay at Peace O'Heaven. The view is breathtaking--each morning we woke up to wonderful views and ate breakfast by the pool. Ken, the property manager, was top notch. He was extremely helpful, friendly, and communicative. The property is well-maintained, and includes everything you need for a fabulous weekend. This property is perfect for two couples, as there are basically two master suites. I really liked all the screened doors, in that they really facilitated a nice breeze during the day and over the night. No need for AC here! I may caution families with young kids about staying here because the pool is quite deep. Located very close to downtown Cruz Bay, you can't beat the value of Peace O'Heaven.
We are just outside of Cruz Bay Town, off of Centerline Rd. (Rte. 10), up 'Pocket Money Lane'(Hill). You proceed up that hill about an 1/8th of a mile, pass the Church Gate on the left and Cruz Views Condos on the right. Make the 'very next' left and our home is the second property on the left, with the aqua roof. We think our place is a great location. It is high enough to be out of the hustle of town, to take advantage of the view and the breezes, yet convenient to shopping and restaurants. You can even walk!
