Reasonable quality on the beautiful Virgin Islands

Romantic cottage in St. John
Yay!! Our beaches are open and visitors are welcomed back from 1st June 2020. Peaceful Cottages is now offering a special COVID-19 "limited time discounts" for 2020/21.
These prices are for 2 people in their own private cottage. Book now and save.
All discounts do apply to a minimum stay of 4 night booking.
Normal cleaning fees, hotel taxes and service charges are not discounted.

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, which is 5-minute drive from Cruz Bay and around a 10-minute drive to the famous North Shore beaches. So conveniently located insofar as shopping, restaurants and entertainment on St John.

The cottage is designed simply to create a Caribbean abode feel although inside is as if you were at home and very comfortable with all modern conveniences and finishes. However outside is finished with bright Caribbean colors and the garden is like a jungle with natural large tropical undergrowth and fruit trees like bananas, passion fruit, Papaya and guava trees and delights with the tropical night sounds with the sounds of crickets, frogs, geckos, Iguana, hermit crabs 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.

The cottage is bright and airy and is set up for 2 people, although a family with young children will also find it comfortable. There is a nice patio with swing bench and table a portable barbecue which is great for breakfast outside or simply lounging in the cool breeze with book in hand.
There is a fully equipped kitchenette inside with all the crockery and cutlery needed to make meals at home for 4 people. A bathroom with shower, sink and WC. It is a large studio which has a queen bed, dining table and chairs and lounging comfortable easy chairs with coffee table.

The cottage is 500 feet above sea level which is about 9-10 degrees cooler than at sea level. Temperatures range between 83 degrees in the summer months down to 72 degrees in the wintertime. The power cost here is very high and as the weather is cool and the nights even cooler and the cottages very airy so there is no need for air conditioning. The power savings being passed on to their low pricing.

There is also a 2nd cottage for two couple or family scenario. They are great for socializing together and then going back to one’s own abode and not sharing kitchen or living areas gives you privacy and intimacy not available when sharing one house together. They are only 50 feet apart however because of the undergrowth and their design are private from each other.

All linen is supplied including beach towels and for those staying for longer periods there is a laundry with washer and drier.

There is parking at the front gate.

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

Note: Please understand that St John is 75% National Park that includes the tropical rain forest. The cottages border the forest. This forest has small animals and insects of St John in it. Although the cottages are completely screened for flying insects and mosquito's we can't guarantee that some may get in somehow.
Guest accommodations at this cottage offer irons/ironing boards. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens or kitchenettes offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and coffee/tea makers. Bathrooms include showers.

2/5 Poor

Will never come back.
No A/C, miserable. Road to property is dangerous, major pot holes. Old/Dated, spotted furnishings. Like camping with a roof. Terrible view. Trevor tried to assist; but, has little to work with. Tried to up grade to better property, VRBO..NO help. Because of all of the above: we left 3 days early. Despite Trevor help, bad experience.

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay
We really enjoyed our time here! The host Trevor went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay!

5/5 Excellent

Jungle Stay
Trevor was a wealth of information and stories! He was easy to reach and always prompt with help and suggestions.

4/5 Good

Peaceful Cottage was very much as advertised. If you're looking for a Ritz Carlton, you will be disappointed but if you are looking to spend some quiet time, this is a good place. The cottage has a small (mostly functional) kitchen, a very small refrigerator. Trevor's house is next door with a full size refrigerator in his outdoor workshop that has plenty of ice if needed. Had plenty of hot water but tried to be considerate and conserve it. It is a bit of "glamping" with no A/C but breezes coming through the windows. Left the door open (screens on it) at night to pull breeze through. No problems with mosquitos but you need to be comfortable with geckos who tend to wander in and out. They eat bugs so they are friends. Spent lots of time on the porch reading and watching a momma hen teach her chicks how to scratch leaves away on the ground below the porch and find bugs underneath to eat. Was great fun to watch. Trevor has a cat that comes by to check on you frequently and will come in and patrol the cottage. She's great and we threatened to bring her home with us. Location is close to Cruz Bay but I don't think of it as walkable so plan of getting a Jeep or maybe take a cab for a short stay. Trevor is great to work with. Very helpful and straightforward.
