We loved our time at the Gate House. The view is just incredible any time of the day. We enjoyed having coffee, meals, cocktails on our private balcony overlooking Cinnamon Bay. The Jacuzzi was great after a day of hiking and for stargazing. We liked the layoutâvery spacious for two people. They even stocked our fridge with a basket of goodies. If there was a minor problem or question, they took care of it right away and followed through to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.
My wife and stayed at Peter Bay Gatehouse (upper unit) for about a week in late June (6/18-6/26). I do not think we could have picked a better place. We had never been to St. John previously and sort of just took a shot in the dark on this place. It was a amazing. St. John was amazing. We were blown away by the world-class beaches and snorkeling and loved the primitive feel of the island. It was just perfect. We will most certainly be returning.
My husband and I stayed at the Peter Bay Gatehouse (Upper unit) for a week in August on our honeymoon. It was a wonderful experience. The view from the gatehouse, particularly the upper unit is unbelievable. We loved the hot tub and using it at night watching storms roll in across the island. We loved St. John as an island, it was nice and small, very easy to navigate, and there are plenty of good restaurants to eat at. Peter Bay has it's own small beach not accessible to the public. It was a little difficult to find but it was worth it once we did. We also enjoyed exploring the island of St. John on hikes. There are a number of other small beaches that aren't necessarily on the map but are very quiet and private if you find them. I would recommend going before 11am to the beaches as they started to get crowded after that. We would definitely recommend the Peter Bay Gatehouse to a couple looking for a quiet beach vacation, we truly enjoyed our stay!
We recently rented the Peter Bay Gatehouse in lovely St. John. Tracie and I were married on Hawksnest Beach and it was beautiful. The villa was great and the view spectacular. The staff member (can't remember her name Sorry) that met us at the ferry was very nice and went out of her way to accommodate us because we were late due to wedding plans, etc) The hot tub, grill and laundry room were nice perks. I will not pack as much next time LOL. Next time we will probable bring another couple or two and will use a larger villa. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
