About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Cinnamon Day Dreams is a spacious 2-level villa with a magnificent view located on St. John's exclusive North Shore. Most of the living areas and the Master Bedroom are on the handicap-accessible main level.

The name Cinnamon Day Dreams is an accurate description of the setting - plenty of privacy, peace and tranquillity....perfect for daydreaming. You’re located 800 feet above Cinnamon Bay and the views of Tortola and the National Park in the foreground are absolutely breathtaking. Cinnamon Bay, Trunk Bay and Tortola lie in front of you and offer excellent swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing, sunning and stress free relaxation. It's a 10 minute drive from Cruz Bay and the last 1/2 mile is a bumpy dirt road intended to discourage tourists from exploring this quiet, prestigious neighborhood.

Cinnamon Day Dreams is located in the exclusive Catherineberg neighborhood of St. John overlooking gorgeous Cinnamon Bay. This neighborhood is one of St. John's most beautiful and desirable neighborhoods. In this unspoiled setting in the midst of world-class National Park beaches, you're surrounded by a naturalist's world of sea, sky and pristine park lands. A short driving distance from Cinnamon Day Dreams are Cinnamon Bay Beach, Hawk's Nest Beach, Trunk Bay Beach, Maho Beach, and Francis Bay Beach. If you value tranquility, natural beauty and the feeling of being alone, this is heaven on an island.

Bedrooms. Two bedrooms are equal in size (about 225 sq.ft.) and each includes a private balcony or deck with elegant mahogany cabinetry and Saltillo-terracotta tiled bath. The third bedroom is outfitted with a queen-sized bed and is located in the loft. The lower level bedrooms include custom built mahogany 4-poster beds that emphasis privacy and the romantic views.

Kitchen. The gorgeous kitchen is defined by granite, mahogany, and lovely views seen through arched entrances that run the length of the kitchen. A granite and mahogany bar/counter that seats 6 separates the kitchen from the outdoor lanai. Behind the bar is a gourmet kitchen with custom built mahogany cabinets, granite countertops, an under counter beverage cooler, Bosch 4-burner stove, built-in oven, large refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, built -in microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, and abundant cookware and dinnerware.

Outdoor living area. One of the most popular design features in an island home is the lanai (outdoor living/dining area). Cinnamon Day Dreams takes great advantage of its lovely setting with its comfortable 500 sq.ft. lanai. This is more than a deck with furniture; it’s an outdoor living area with comfortable furniture and a 6 person dining table that protects you from the sun and the occasional island shower. From the lanai you look through columned arches at the beautiful views of Cinnamon Bay Beach, Tortola and the unspoiled beauty of the National Park.

The photos leave no doubt that Cinnamon Day Dreams is a spacious, beautiful, and very comfortable luxury villa. Everything about this villa is appealing; from the bedrooms to the great room to the outdoor living area. This is a professionally redecorated, very tasteful home with a distinct sense of island elegance. Cinnamon Day Dreams is an excellent vacation home for small families or for 1-2 couples, and this romantic and beautiful setting is also well suited for honeymooners and lovers.

Getting there and important information to consider

• Rental car recommended (3 miles on Centerline Road to the turn off to National Park and then 1/2 mile down National Park Road to home)

• Nearest beach—1 mile down the St. John Head road to Cinnamon Bay

• Nearest grocery store— 3 miles from villa is Dolphin Market located on Centerline Road

• Free calls on LAN to the U.S.A.

NOTE: Cellular phone service is available throughout the island but at the villa, the reception picks up the British Virgin Island cellular tower so international rates apply.

Important: A 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommended but not required for Cinnamon Day Dreams. The Catherineberg neighborhood roads are recently paved, and the road conditions vary dependent on the weather. The roads are not dangerous, but can be bumpy due to periods of heavy rainfall during rainy season.


Optional mid-week housekeeping is available for an additional fee of $175.00. Please ask for more details.

IMPORTANT: CANCELLATION POLICY - If guests wishes to cancel his/her reservation, 100% is refundable if canceled in 60 days or more before arrival. For peace of mind, we recommend that you purchase trip cancellation insurance.

Ideal setting

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Cinnamon Day Dreams for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the house. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking, but thankfully we didn't use the kitchen except to make coffee. St. John has so many great restaurants, and because of it's great location we went to Cruz Bay and Coral Bay for dinner every night. We did bring in dinner from Sam and Jack's Deli after a spending the day on Jost Van Dyke. Just watched HGTV's Island Life last night and the show was about ST. John, the couple buying property turned out to be Sam and Jack! Back to the house, we enjoyed the pool and hot tub everyday, so nice to have the float. Didn't really use the living area because we spent our time outside on the porch or by the pool. Great view of Tortola!

Master bedroom is very spacious with lots of closet space. Bed very comfy. Master bath very nice. The guest room is very nice as well and the bath. So nice to have 2 windows in the shower. We appreciated the fact that part of the road is being paved, makes getting to the North shore beaches so much easier. Thank you, Michelle and Frank for sharing your lovely island home!

It was amazing! The views are spectacular!!! We loved the hot tub and pool!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time there. The views from every rear window were stunning!! The listing was accurate and the layout was nice. The property was very clean when we arrived and the yard was well tended. We had a great time in the hot tub and pool and the beds were very comfy. We were so glad to have coolers, chairs and towels to use each day for the beach and absolutely appreciated the fans in each room for the white noise and cool air flow. It was nice to have some condiments and supplies available as prices at the stores were outrageous. Grocery shopping was SUPER expensive so we were glad we brought a suitcase of snacks for our 3 "non stop" eating teens. One thing that would have been very nice, would have been a cleaning half way through our trip. I cleaned the house everyday from the sand and the busy doings of 5 people, and it would have been nice to come home Wed. and have a clean house with fresh sheets on the beds. Some of the appliances didn't work well: broken temp gauge on oven, having to slam the microwave shut for it to work, the detergent door didn't always open for the dishwasher so we had to redo loads often and the dvd player didn't work at all. There were lots of nice glasses and plates and serving trays. The ice maker worked fabulously. Would have been nice to have an air mattress (although our host brought one half way through our trip) as my almost 6 foot twin boys had a hard time sleeping together in one queen size bed. Having the middle gate broken was very disappointing. We had to look at a broken gate all week instead of the gorgeous view (bummer). We enjoyed many beaches from the east to the west end and had wonderful meals at the Lime Inn and Woody's (to name a couple). Overall we loved our trip!

Owner's Response: I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate your feedback. Today the middle rear door is repaired. YEAH! We strive to make everything perfect for our guests, but as I informed you before your arrival, with parts coming from Florida, it just wasn't possible. Some guests are slightly heavy-handed on the appliances which has caused the broken oven button. Now, the oven is pre-set at 350 degrees. Our next mission is to replace the oven so that the temperature gauge works perfectly. Your suggestion of a mid-week clean is a good one which we will offer as an option moving forward. Again, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and I invite you back to experience all of our new features. As a repeat guests, you will always be entitled to a discount. Warmest regards, Frank

Owner's Response: Tiffany, It was truly a pleasure to host you and your family over the new year holiday celebration. St John is a special place with loads of activities to keep you busy (if you so desire) over a major holiday. I am glad that you were able to take advantage of all St John has to offer. On your next visit, you are entitled to 'belonger' discounts. We look forward to sharing Cinnamon Day Dreams with you and your family again soon. Warmest regards, Michelle

Quintessentialy St John

  • 5 of 5

The brutally cold northeast winter wore us down and the stress piled up at work. We arrived for our six-day stay at Cinnamon Bay Daydreams and found serenity in a clean, wonderfully laid out home with breathtaking views, supreme seclusion and unmistakable island character.

The pictures don't do justice to the quality of the wood and masonry construction, large bedrooms and updated bathrooms. It was just two of us on this trip but CBD would have offered plenty of space and privacy for two families or three couples with two separate, equally large master suites and large loft area. The open floor plan allows guests to move freely between the kitchen, living/dining area and the lanai. We especially enjoyed watching the sun rise over Tortola as we started a pot of coffee and cooked breakfast.

We took early morning hikes and full day excursions from CBDs central island location in Catherineberg. It's one of the islands most exclusive neighborhoods due to its location within the National Park boundary. We enjoyed the most restful sleep we could recall as nature played us a symphony of rustling treetops, crickets, tree frogs and other nocturnal creatures.

The world famous north shore beaches are your playground. You can walk down the hill to Cinnamon Bay or hop in the car for a 10 minute ride to Trunk or Maho (our favorite). One of our favorite activities was to put the top down on the Jeep and cruise the island. It's less than 15 minutes to either Coral Bay or Cruz Bay, with miles of hikes in between. The plantation ruins from bygone eras are everywhere and not to be missed.

We always made it back early to enjoy an evening cocktail on the lanai. The twilight view of the BVIs is best accompanied by a Cruzan on the rocks and an old pirate novel.

Not only would we rent this villa again, we would move there if life allowed us. You won't be disappointed.

One note- you cannot fully enjoy this location without renting a car. Soft top Jeeps are only available on STT but the cargo ferry was very easy.

Secluded Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult daughter and I just returned from 5 days at Cinnamom Day Dreams villa. We had a wonderful time. The villa is very much like it looks in the pictures, complete with all the amenities needed for a beach vacation. It was clean, comfortable, and offered magnificent views of the BVI. Although there were other villas around, we could not see any of them. The villa was a perfect integration into the national park setting. One suggestion; use only fragrance free laundry products as one of our party is allergic to artificial fragrances.

The house is beautiful, just like the pictures. Location is great for getting around the island, especially north shore beaches. House set-up was nice for a family of 6. Rooms separate enough for privacy but everyone under one roof, which is often not the case with a lot of villas. The greeters at the dock went above and beyond our expectations. Our flight was delayed getting in on Easter Sunday. They arranged to get our rental car from the dealer before they closed, which was very helpful and thoughtful. Overall, had a great stay.
