No glitzy resorts at Estate Peter Bay

More than half of Saint John, the smallest of the 3 US Virgin Islands, is protected national park. This has, in part, helped to keep the island as one of the most pristine in the whole Caribbean. Don't come here expecting glitzy resorts with all-you-can-eat buffets and swim-up bars. Instead, you'll find an unspoiled forested landscape flanked by picture-perfect sandy bays, where the only noise you'll hear is the swaying of palms and lapping ocean waves. When you've bagged yourself an Estate Peter Bay vacation rental, you can leave your cellphone behind because where you're going, you won't need or want it.

Things to do

A little blackened mahi mahi at Estate Peter Bay

Just minutes up the road from your Estate Peter Bay vacation rental, you can drop into the Annaberg Sugar Plantation ruins, which stand as a reminder of how important sugar and rum are to the Caribbean. If you find yourself up in the national park, look out for the ancient petroglyphs carved into the rocks. Dining Virgin-style is casual. Nothing beats a smoky outdoor drum barbecue sizzling away with freshly caught mahi mahi, or the island's famously sweet lobster. Accompany with cold Caribbean beer and the balmy tropical evening and you're good to go.


Estate Peter Bay is moments from the beach

Shoes are unnecessary, especially when you can tip-toe down to the sandy shores in moments from your Estate Peter Bay vacation rental. This is your vacation and if you want to while it away burying your feet in the sand and catching up on reading, there are few places better to do it. That said, if you're getting restless, you can rent kayaks or paddleboards to explore the rocky coastline, don masks and flippers to delve around the coral reefs, or go hiking in the forests to spot wildlife. In the evening, swing by one of the island's bars for a sundowner.


Escape the winter blues at Estate Peter Bay

It'll be unsurprising to hear that the busiest time in Estate Peter Bay vacation rentals on Saint John is over the winter, where families swap out the below-freezing temperatures back home for the tropical sunshine in the Caribbean. If you plan to come, particularly at Christmas or New Year, book up early to avoid disappointment. That said, for even hotter weather, try scoring a rental between March and June when the skies are still bright, the crowds have all but left and the rains have yet to appear, not to mention the dip in rental prices.

Natural features

Creatures of the deep at Estate Peter Bay

There's a long list of species that scuttle around the sandy bays and forested hills on Saint John, but for the most impressive, you'll need to head out to sea. If you're visiting at the right time, you could be oohing and aahing as you can catch a glimpse of dolphins leaping out the sea, or whales crashing their fins on the water's surface. If you've got your mask and flippers handy, hop into the crystal-clear water to spot sea turtles, playful seals and other creatures of the deep. Get your GoPro on standby.
