Cinnamon Ridge is located 530 feet above the white sands of Cinnamon Bay, on St. John’s fabulous north shore. This neighborhood is much like Peter Bay and is one of St. John’s most beautiful and desirable settings. In this unspoiled setting in the midst of the National Park you’re surrounded by a naturalist’s world of sea, sky and pristine park lands.
To get to Cinnamon Ridge you drive on Watapalma Road, to the last home on this dead end road, and thanks to the private driveway, there is no drive by or turn around traffic (none). Even by St. John’s high standards, this is an unusually peaceful, quiet and private location.
The 200 degree view from every room is absolutely lovely and includes Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, a dozen other islands, turquoise seas and powder white sand beaches. Cinnamon Bay, Trunk Bay and Jumbie Bay lie below you and offer what travel writers have described as some of the world’s finest swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and beaching. It’s a 15 minute drive into or from Cruz Bay and the last 1/2 mile is a bumpy dirt road intended to discourage tourists from exploring your quiet neighborhood.
Cinnamon Ridge is an expanded design that extends more than 150 feet from the house to the pool deck. All the living areas and bedrooms are under one roof, with the large pool and sundeck on the west (sunny) side of the villa in an ultra private location.
You approach the house from below and drive up to the parking area on the upper level of this 2-level villa. A tropical walkway leads to the main entrance which opens to the great room that contains the living, dining and kitchen areas. There are two bedroom/baths on the upper level on either side of the great room, and three more bedroom/baths on the lower level which is accessed by interior and exterior stairs. Both the upper and lower levels have decks that run the entire length of the house, while on the west side of the villa a large sundeck, waterfall, lagoon pool and hot tub is bordered by lush tropical gardens.
The 700 square foot living room has tiled floors and cathedral ceilings with skylights and is dominated by a 20′ wall of glass that provides gorgeous views from everywhere in the room. The comfortable rattan upholstered furniture seats 10-12. Entertainment is provided by a cable color TV/VCR/DVD and stereo/cassette
The kitchen is fully equipped with two refrigerators, a stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, ice maker, blender, toaster oven, coffeemaker, china, cookware, dishes and utensils. There are two washer/dryers on the lower level. A tiled bar/counter separates the kitchen from the dining room which has a glass topped rattan table that seats 6-8. A sliding glass door leads to the covered main dining deck with a teak table that seats 10-14, while the west dining deck seats 6-8 on teak furniture and the table on the pool deck seats 6-8.
POOL and DECK: With its 45 foot lagoon pool and a 4-6 person hot tub, the 1200 sq/ft pool deck is the recreation center of this splendid villa. The deck is carved out of lush subtropical forest and opens to majestic views of green islands floating on a tranquil sea of blue. The tumbling waterfall, the rustle of palm fronds and the music of songbirds are the only sounds you hear in this exceptionally quiet and peaceful location
This is an excellent vacation home for families, or for 1-5 couples or small business meetings, and this romantic and beautiful setting is also well suited for honeymooners and lovers.
