Overview

Gift Hill Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Peaceful Cottage is nestled inside the cool and shady tropical rain forest of beautiful St John. Just a few minutes walk or drive away from great trail hikes down to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Peaceful Cottage offers quick and easy access to National Park trails, beaches, shopping, and bars. Situated under the tropical forest canopy, surrounded by big old trees with creepers winding up the trunks, the temperature is always pleasantly just right, always a few degrees cooler than at the beach. A little sun trickles through the treetops but it's never too hot, never too cool. When you're ready for more sun, the beaches are not far away! The air is fresh and pure -- truly a most peaceful environment.

The location is a very private and fenced-in cul-de-sac on Gift Hill, not far from Fork in the Road.

The cottage is very competitively priced for St John and offers excellent value for your dollar. It is geared toward people who are looking to be surrounded by the stunning natural scenery, the sounds of crickets and frogs and geckos, and scents of the rain forest. After a day spent exploring the island's treasures (the petroglyphs, the mill ruins, hiking trails, reefs and beaches) and experiencing myriad sun-drenched and water-quenched activities you'll come back to a quiet, cool, and restful home-away-from-home.

A cot is available for a third person or child.

Beach towels and mats are available for your use.

Outdoor smoking is OK. Your pet is welcome, though larger dogs might be intimidated by one very friendly Jack Russell terrier ....

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

Centrally located. Easy to get either to Cruz Bay and Coral Bay. Lovely outdoor kitchen and surprisingly cool at night. Helpful owner, Trevor. Sweet dog, Jackie. Loved our time here. Great deal on the jeep he let's us use.

A Great Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Peaceful Cottages in the end of October and found it to be a wonderful experience. Our cottage was the smaller one and it was just right for the two of us. It was comfortable and we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We took advantage of the outside grill and cooked most of our own meals. It was very relaxing to sit on the porch surrounded by rain forest plants and wild life. I particularly enjoyed the night sounds of the chorus of frogs that lull you to sleep at night. We also enjoyed playing with Jackie, the sweet Jack Russell terrier. We used the four-wheel drive jeep and it was perfect for the roads there. It was no problem adjusting to driving on the left side. Trevor was able to give a lot of good advice about places to go and things to do. It was our first time being in Saint John and we would like to go back and stay there again. We highly recommend it.

A Whimsical Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 12 days in paradise and this cottage was perfect for us! About eight minutes from town, this is nestled in foliage on the hillside. Every night you get a lullaby from the tree frogs and then wake each morning with the birds. It is airy and spacious, all the open windows helped us acclimate to the weather within two days.(very humid) The 4WD car rental available was perfect, as you can explore on your own. There is so much beauty and life on St. John, and this cottage really makes you feel apart of it. You can sit on the wrap around porch and watch the geckos with your morning tea. Or snorkel with the rays and turtles at Maho. Or have breakfast in Coral bay with goats and donkeys. Always coming home to the quiet. The best part for me was the solitude. This isn't a fancy resort with tons of people, its your own haven in the forest!

I would recommend either cottage to anyone who likes their own space and connecting with nature. It is clean and well maintained and Trevor is an amazing host, there for all questions and travel activities! Parasailing was beautiful! And bring your throwing arm; the cottages' other host has four legs, loves to play fetch, and is incredibly adorable!

Remember to bring BUG SPRAY. I don't like deet, but it is better than mosquito bites. For authentic Caribbean food try De' Coal Pot. Bring an underwater camera or case and snorkel with the turtles at Maho! Park at Annaberg and walk the trail, not just at those ruins but by Leinster bay. Along the water and up the hill leads you to heaven! Also, go to Dennis Bay beach. It is off of the Peace Hill trail to the right, it was perfect!!!!!!!

Just as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Best value on the island! We read the reviews and spoke to Trevor before renting, and knew what to expect. We traveled with another couple and rented both cottages. It was a wonderful week that just went by too fast! We'd love to stay there again!

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the smaller (PC1) cottage but there is plenty of room for 2, even for the scuba gear to hang/dry. Just enough off the main drag to get away from the ever busier Cruz Bay. Quiet, comfortable, clean. Stayed 11 days in late Jan, 2014 and loved it. No problems with wifi, cable, etc. Trevor is a really great guy and knows the island so his guidance on sightseeing/tours helped a lot. The car is a real deal if you want to explore the island and all the great beaches. All in all, this was a memorable trip and the cottage was the perfect choice at a great price. Yea, Jackie (the Jack Russell) is a treat but I'm a dog lover. This was our 4th trip to St John and we'll stay here next time if Trevor hasn't sailed back to South Africa yet.
