About the property

Villa rates vary 3 to 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 to 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

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.

About Diana Hall

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 their stay if the need arises.

Diana Hall purchased this villa in 2009

Why Diana Hall chose Estate Peter Bay

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.

What makes this villa unique

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!

Stunning - Amazing Home. Majestic views - untouched by the hurricanes

  • 5 of 5

We just got home Feb 2nd from an 8 day vacation on St John at Areca. This was our 5th St John vacation in 5 years. Areca is stunning, and the views are fabulous! I wish I could find a stronger word to describe the views...Stunning, breath-taking. St John post hurricane is green and beautiful, the beaches are beautiful, the resturants in Cruz Bay are open, the people and service are wonderful and very welcoming. Areca is located just minutes from beached that are ranked in the top 3 on the planet. Diana is extremely responsive and truly cares. I highly recommend Areca and will book Areca again. Great home, great views, great location, and wonderful owner! Randall K.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying at the Areca last week. There was 7 of us and we had an amazing time. We love staying on St John and the view the Areca villa provided made it even better! The villa itself is very well maintained and we love eating outside on the large table. Great place to take the family!

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes for our family vacation to the USVi for the last 9 years. Areca is the best home so far! Absolutely beautiful, very comfortable, and all the amenities you could ever want. The only thing that needs to be corrected is the pool light. It would have been nice to swim at night in an illuminated pool looking at that amazing view. Thank you Diane for your hospitality!!!

Fabulous property, incredible views, easy access to spectacular North Shore beaches

  • 5 of 5

Three really important factors for a great vacation on St. John are easy access to the fabulous North Shore beaches, cooling and mosquito dispersing breezes, and the view whilst you sit over your morning coffee or evening cocktail. Areca Peter Bay has ALL of these PLUS A WHOLE LOT MORE. It's an amazing property with incredible views. Beautifully constructed and furnished with everything you could ever need. Highlights include the spectacular infinity edge pool, the huge outdoor dining table (with overhead ceiling fans which mean you can sit outside at any time without getting bugged) and the master bedroom balcony. Luxurious accommodation for five couples, each bedroom has a private bathroom. And great, highly responsive owners - who clearly take great care of the house and guests.

I very much hope to be back soon!!!
