About Peter Carveth (owner)

I spent 35 years as a consumer products packaging engineer.....many as a manager. I now do recruiting for large medical, pharmaceutical and consumer products companies...and try to manage my Villa on St. John.

Peter Carveth (owner) purchased this villa in 2008

Why Peter Carveth (owner) chose Fish Bay

The view, the water, the weather, and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world...I built the Villa as a place were my daughters (Christy & Ann) would like to come to visit and enjoy the beaches with me.

What makes this villa unique

Christy Ann (Villa) is great for one couple, or, one couple plus a few off spring. The view is a primary feature... another are the light cool trade breezes, usually eliminating the need for A/C, and blowing away the bugs. Large private porch with cool trade breezes and large hot tub makes it an important part of the Villa. Drive way entrance is on Fish Bay road...a paved road. Time required to drive to Cruz Bay is about 5 to 10 minutes....to the north side beaches about 15 to 20 minutes. The Villa has a large parking and turn around area unique to the Island. The 80 percent of the view is of the ocean and Fish Bay. Excellent communications...you can see the cellular tower from the porch...and, the Villa has wifi. The Villa has a vaulted ceiling and plenty of light. The porch and lower Terrance are completely private areas. The Villa has over 2400 square feet under roof ....thus, plenty of extra space. In addition, the lot size is large and the space around the Villa is cleared of tropical brush.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The views are gorgeous and the house is spacious. The back porch has nice lounge chairs and a hot tub looking out over the water. It is quiet and peaceful. The owner was very friendly and provided numerous extremely helpful tips (rent the car on St. Thomas and hit the grocery stores there for better selection and prices, for example). There is a spiral staircase that would be scary for the unsteady (toddlers or the disabled), but it maximized usable space. The air conditioning worked well and the house was clean. The two private upstairs bedrooms were separated from the living room, but there was a TV in the downstairs bedroom that could be used if the upstairs crew wanted to sleep before others were ready. The house was close to Cruz Bay and therefore convenient to shopping and restaurants. At the same time, it was very secluded and private. We were met by the property manager at the ferry on time and followed him to the house, where he gave a useful tour of things in the house. There was an informative book with suggestions for activities and restaurants. The owner couldn't have been nicer and the house was great!...I highly recommend it.

Beautiful home, beautiful view, helpful owner, extremely clean

  • 5 of 5
This home was outstanding! The villa and view are even prettier than the pictures show. The kitchen was well-stocked, the bed was comfy, the bath towels were plenty and very soft and the place was spotless. Having someone greet us off the car ferry to show us to the villa was extremely helpful and helped our vacation start off on a nice, relaxing note. We had one minor issue while we were there and had to call the rental company and they sent someone out within 30 minutes. Peter was also very helpful as we booked our rental car and giving directions.

The location of the villa on the island was great for us. We enjoyed being out of the main part of town for more privacy and quiet evenings. We had massages on the balcony one night and enjoyed many leisurely mornings overlooking the water. It was a perfect place.

I wrote a review on my blog about it since I loved it so much and shared pictures and more details there! http://afoodiestaysfit.com/2014/06/where-to-stay-in-st-john/

Excellent Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved your house. I have rented for years using VRBO all over the country and your place was the best by far. The breeze is the most remarkable feature of the house. It allowed us to sit in the porch late into the night and relax and talk without getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. The hot tub was thoroughly enjoyed and we only used the a/c for sleeping, in fact my teenager did not use it at all. I would not hesitate to stay here again. It was absolutely lovely. Internet worked fine...no issues at all.

Thank You for allowing us to stay at Christy Ann!

Owner's Response: The breezes across Christy Ann's porch are generated by the
trade winds but partly blocked by the hills.....the breeze can
vary from zero to too much but 80% of the time it is just
about right. Yes, the breeze across the porch is a primary
positive feature of Christy Ann.

One of the Best Villas in St. John

  • 5 of 5
Since 2005, my husband and I have rented close to 20 villas in St Thomas and St John. We have an 8 yo that has always travelled with us. The majority of the villas have been rented in St John. Christy Ann is by far one of the best villas that we have rented. The villa is in excellent condition. Many times we have rented villas (even high end villas) that have small maintenance issues that arise, eg., BBQ doesn't light, screen broken. This villa is so well maintained. We had zero issues. The breeze is what made this villa for us. We have never stayed at a villa where we could enjoy the natural breeze without the problem of bugs or it getting too hot. We left the doors open the whole time we were in the villa. It was so refreshing. The A/Cs were in excellent condition but we did not need them. The view from the balcony is fabulous. One of the few places we have rented where the villa and view were nicer than the photos. We highly recommend Christy Ann for families as many villas in St John are not self contained and have separate buildings for bedrooms. The hot tub is in excellent condition and was so enjoyable. Peter, the owner, is very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. We will definitely rent again!

Perfect Villa for Our Family of Five

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five (two adults and three boys ages 20,18 and 14) spent a week at Christy Ann, concluding our visit just yesterday. We found the villa exactly as advertised. It offers just the right balance of seclusion and convenience. The villa has spectacular views of Fish Bay and the Carribean, and a constant breeze keeps any insects at bay.

Although the unit has only three bedrooms, it actually feels much larger due to the high vaulted ceiling and the spacious lower level. The owner has done a nice job of taking full advantage of the space he had available. First-time visitors to STJ will appreciate the spacious parking area. This is without question one of the most accessible villas on the island.

All appliances were new and in working order, including the dishwasher -- which is a bit of a rarity in a villa at this price point. Perhaps our only complaint would be that the kitchen basics -- plates, bowls, glassware -- were a bit of a hodge-podge. But all in all, this is a very minor issue. I would strongly recommend Christy Ann for a small family, or for a pair of couples traveling together. Due the spiral staircase I'm not sure it would be a wise choice for families with toddlers or the elderly.

Owner's Response: While I appreciate John's comments....I do want to respond to a few of his comments. It may seem like a hodge-podge of plates, glasses,etc....but they are result of responding to guest requests. There is a full matched set of plates, bowls, cups, etc....in the glass cabinet he may have over looked. I try to put elderly guests in the Master Bedroom on the main floor so they don't have to climb the Spiral Chair case. Also, Christy Ann is rated as a wheel chair compatible house and not available for very young children.

Great stay at Christy Ann

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at this villa for 5 nights in early March 2013 and had a fantastic time. We enjoyed the views from the deck with our coffee every morning and with a cold presidente every evening. The hot tub was a great way to relax after hiking and snorkeling all over the island. The bed was very comfortable and the villa was incredibly quiet at night. The owner was extremely helpful providing information about the island when we booked as well as a very useful binder with tour information and restaurant menus. We would absolutely return to St John and stay at Christy Ann again!

Christy Ann is located on the south side of the lsland about a 10 minute drive to Cruz Bay...and easily found by a taxi. The north side beaches are about 15 to 20 minutes away by car. It is a quiet area with a great view.
