Anole - Amazing North Shore Views! Newly Updated. Come see for yourself.

Romantic villa in St. John
Anole is a 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath villa that is located in Cinnamon Bay, surrounded by St. John’s National Park and about 600 feet above the soft white sands of Cinnamon Beach. This is considered to be one of St. John’s finest neighborhoods and the homes in this upscale locality tend to be pricey and distinctive. Although there are other homes in the neighborhood, the privacy of Anole is superb and this setting is the very definition of a peaceful, quiet and away-from-it-all island hideaway. The view is absolutely gorgeous and includes Tobago and Little Tobago Islands, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, and other islands floating on a sea that continuously changes colors throughout the day. Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Bay lie below you and offer excellent swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing, and stress free relaxation on a world class beach. It's a 15 minute drive into or from Cruz Bay and the last 1/2 mile is a bumpy dirt road intended to discourage tourists from wandering into your very private and quiet neighborhood.

Anole is built on two levels. The great room and two bedrooms/baths, plus a half bath are on the upper level, and two more bedrooms/baths and the pool are on the lower level. You park on the upper level and as you enter the great room the first thing you see is the gorgeous view of Cinnamon Bay. The kitchen and interior dining are on the right side, while the living area occupies the left half of the great room. A tiled sundeck is off the great room, and exterior stairs off the sundeck lead to the pool and the lower bedrooms. The lower bedrooms also offer lots of privacy, with a covered deck located between them. The pool sits in a very private, lushly landscaped spot on the west (left) side of the house and can be accessed by stairs from the house or the entrance area.

The four oversize bedrooms (305 sq/ft) are all located to insure excellent privacy from each other. The upper level east (right) bedroom has a king bed while the other three bedrooms have twin beds that convert to kings. The two lower level bedrooms are accessed by exterior stairs from the upper deck or the pool deck. Each bedroom has a lovely 150 sq ft fully screened porch with wicker furniture, and each bedroom has a telephone and a tiled bath and shower.

The great room has a cathedral ceiling, handsome stonework, tiled floors, and a 30 x 8 foot wall of screened glass doors that offer marvelous views from everywhere in the room. The living area is furnished with comfortable wicker and rattan furniture, a cable TV/DVD, a stereo CD and wireless internet. The interior dining table and the dining table on the upper deck both seat 6-8. There is also a table and chairs on the pool deck.
The kitchen is in the rear of the great room but it also shares the gorgeous view. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a refrigerator, gas range, dishwasher and microwave oven. In the back of the kitchen there is a pantry and a washer/dryer and a gas grill is on the upper deck.

Note: A 4 wheel drive vehicle is advisable for Anole. The Anole neighborhood roads are unpaved, 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.

Guest accommodations at this villa offer private pools and DVD players. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils.

Bathrooms include showers. Business-friendly amenities include desk chairs and phones. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and irons/ironing boards.

Fantastic trip
What a wonderful stay we had! We’ve been to St. John several times and could not truly anticipate how gorgeous the views were from this spot. With a young traveler with us it was so convenient to come home to the pool for a break and still enjoy the beauty around us. We had plenty of space and enjoyed the layout of the house. We lost power on the island a couple of times during the week, the second time for an extended period. We would just ask the hosts to consider purchasing a generator, as others around us had, for those unexpected times. If traveling to St. John with a larger group again, we would certainly stay again!

4/5 Good

Gorgeous view, very hilly access
Spacious, comfortable home, but starting to show its age a bit. Just some minor repairs and it would be good as new. Extremely hilly access to get there and a very tight turn into the driveway if you have a larger vehicle (i.e. - Dodge Durango or other larger SUV). If we had a vehicle, such as the Jeeps you see everywhere on the island, I feel this would not have been an issue. Be aware that access to the two bedrooms downstairs is by outside staircase only - no interior access. We had all adults, but people with children may not find this optimal. Electric shutters to close off the bedroom archways to the screened in patios were missing in several bedrooms. Overall, a lovely home with plenty of space for everyone to stretch out and enjoy the unbeatable views of the north shore. Great sized pool with built in loungers. Updated kitchen, and 3 of the 4 baths were updated. Super comfortable mattress in the master bedroom (just off the kitchen).

5/5 Excellent

Great Week
We have visited St. John over a half dozen times and have stayed in villas all over the island. This was by far the best location and view of them all. Pros: The view at this villa is absolutely spectacular. In addition, the property manager was very helpful and efficient. The property was very clean and the self-check-in and check-out procedures were easy and convenient. The beds and furniture were very comfortable and the internet was fast and reliable. Challenges: We have seen some pretty exciting driveways on St. John (and we have one at home), but this one takes the prize. The decks are fairly weathered and there are some spots with exposed and rusting nail heads. It was not an issue for the adults, but if you are traveling with children be prepared to remind them to put their shoes on often. Lastly, there are no glass windows in the bedrooms and the screens are a bit warped in places. Although the biggest gaps are sealed with duct tape, there were still quite a few openings. We noticed that in the pictures and brought pop-up mosquito nets for the beds, which worked perfectly.

Best location on island
Somewhere near the top of the hill overlooking Cinnamon Bay, Anole is the largest low profile eco integrated villa with everything 2 families need for a fabulous stay in a tropical climate. Mornings/evenings one awakes/sleeps to the sound of birds and tree frogs and rainbows abound from the deck view. Out of the 7 days we were there I don't think there was one without at least one rainbow. The property also has a pool, though you won't need it as 8 beaches on the North shore of the island are all within a 5 mile drive or less (I'll review the South shore beaches in a different post :) ). The property management company staff met us at the Red Hook ferry, escorted us to the villa and gave us a full tour on arrival. They also helped fix a clothes washer glitch within 24 hrs. They are transparent, responsive and not intrusive. The only "negative" thing about Anole is that they're booked solid most of the year so if thinking of staying there one must look 4-5 month in advance. Don't fret though, you can make many trips to the St John national park and enjoy every one of them. Just make Anole your last trip because after that you'll have a hard time staying anywhere else.

Breathtaking Views
The view is an absolute dream , clean house ~ picture does not do justice ~ peaceful and tucked away . However we had a few minor issues with the water at times there was no water . I had to reach out to the rental owners , they did send someone out twice to fix however for the length of our stay the problem was consistent . We were Blessed my hubby is a handyman and could get it going , but be prepared if you wake up and want a shower that might not happen right away - want to wash you hands you might have to get the system going . Other than that it was a wonderful vacation with lots of memories ❤️ I would rent this place again!
