2B at Peter Bay - Waterfront villa with wraparound balcony, pool & ocean views
Description from the manager
Overlooking the pristine sands and turquoise waters of Peter Bay, there sits the stunning luxury villa 2B. The stone exteriors and old world architecture of this bijou villa create a palatial ambience for your tropical getaway. Just steps from the beach, you will be feeling the island vibes of lovely Saint John in no time!
A wraparound balcony flanks three sides of the gallery at 2B, with one end featuring a gas grill and wine cooler. Two steps lead to the private pool and sun deck, with chaise lounges for sunbathing and a small cocktail area. A stone staircase leads through lush landscaping down to this villa’s next tier, offering a terrace with a large hot tub. A few more steps lead to a secluded waterfront overlook of Peter Bay’s coral reef, rugged lava shoreline and the beautiful National Park waters and surrounding hills. This secluded area, or “Anniversary Point” is a romantic nook designed for two, to share a glass of wine and quiet moments together.
Additional stone steps along the water’s edge, night lit for balmy nights, lead gently down to the private beach terrace perched just ten feet above the rolling ocean waves. By night, stretch out and stargaze, or watch the moon rise. From here, you can enjoy the sugar white sands, swimming and snorkeling of Peter Bay Beach, just 100 feet away. Indoors, you will find a home entertainment system with satellite TV, a DVD player with movie collection and an iPod dock, as well as books and games, and Wi-Fi.
All four of the bedroom suites in 2B at Peter Bay are widely separated for exceptional privacy. 2B’s suites are air conditioned, fully screened, and each has a private balcony from which to savor the wide-angled ocean views. This villa welcomes eight guests including children, but due to its many levels may not be ideal for families with toddlers or small children, or guests with reduced mobility.
2B at Peter Bay is furnished with your comfort in mind, without sacrificing its artful elegance and style. This rare oceanfront location on the north coast of beautiful Saint John will fulfill most vacation wish lists. At the beach, you will find plenty of options for water sports including sea kayaking and sailing. Your dream villa awaits!

From the moment we arrived at the 2B villa in Peter Bay, we were blown away. The views were amazing and the hous was kept very well. Roger was a great asset to have when questions did arise and all of our needs were more than met. The beach was perfect, the water clear and there is nothing to compare. Just an all around perfect trip.

The house had a great location but we would not rent it again. We were traveling with a toddler and the house had what I would consider the absolutely worst floor plan possible for an 18 month old. I wish someone from Luxury Retreats would have tried to talk me out of it. Over all the house was clean but we did kill a scorpion on the steps inside the house right outside the master bedroom on the 2nd day. With all the steps in the house it was a minor miracle that our 18 month old grandson didn't get hurt. The entire house was tile and the floor plan was a disaster. Great house if you are looking for exercise. You had to take 3 sets of stairs to get from the master bedroom every morning to go to the kitchen for a cup of coffee. Not my idea of a relaxing way to get up every morning. The house was very beautiful but not very functional. I very rarely write reviews but felt it my responsibility to prevent others from making the same mistake we did. Not a house for kids !!!!! - Chuck S., North Carolina, USA

We have vacationed in some amazing spots prior to this trip however 2B Peter Bay on St. John has reset the bar for fantastic vacations! From the pictures and conversations prior to the trip, our expectations were very high. 2B completely blew us away and far exceeded the expectations!! The house was phenomenal, extremely clean and very well cared for... Everything worked as promised and we felt at home from the 1st minute of walking through the doors! We enjoyed snorkeling, fishing, beach time, pool, outdoor grilling, and general great family time in the beautiful home and surrounding terraces and walkways... WE TRULY HAD A FANTASTIC TIME!!! - Tom M., ,

From start to finish our experience with Luxury Retreats and 2B Peter Bay was absolutely exceptional. Laura and Lucille were so responsive to our every request and 2B Peter Bay was even more breathtaking than the photos. It is an exceptional home where the owners have taken great thought and care in making their guests feel welcomed and pampered. It was like living in your own piece of heaven on earth for a week. There was unanimous agreement from the group that they had never seen a more beautiful place nor had a more wonderful vacation. We will definitely be coming back! - Susan P., Texas, USA

The view from 2B at Peter Bay was magnificient and the house is designed so that all of the rooms take advantage of it. A good portion of each day and night was spent on the elevated terrace looking out at the islands, turrqouise water, rocks and curved shoreline. It was mesmerizing each day. The house was well appointed and we were most comfortable there on all counts. We snorkled around and about the cove and, also, walked over to Cinnamon Bay to swim there. It was nice to have a few beaches within walking distance to swim and enjoy the shifting views. We rented a small charter boat from Prowler and spent the day motoring among the islands, swimming, snorkling, eating and drinking. All 6 of us enjoyed the trip very much. - Blair J., ,

The house was even more amazing in person than the pictures we viewed ahead of time. We have stayed in a lot of different houses on trips and this is one of the very best. Everything was done well from the reservation process to the greeters that insured our stay went without any hitches. Very well done by all!! - Dean R., West Virginia, USA

The vacation was originally planned for July, but we had to postpone due a health problem. Since that moment Ahmed Wasiemy took care about the situation and he made a wonderful job talking with the owners and he got a new date for September without any charge. Obviously that the behavior of the owners was also outstanding and show us a very human understanding of the situation of everyone. Also Sarah Fogg made all the reprogramming for all the reservations and activities. In all moment we felt backed up for this two members of Luxury Retreats. The vacation was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. The weather was excellent. Sep. in St. John is low season. Therefore most of the restaurants were closed, but in the other hand we had the big benefit of having very few people at beach and supermarket. Definitely the villa does not have beach. Sand is beyond the limit of the property. To get it you have to swim.In the other hand Trunk Bay is 5`away. Everything was great and unforgettabl - Rolando C., , Argentina

We recently stayed at 2B Peter Bay for a week's vacation in July. Our group has been all over the world, and every one of us agreed that this was the best vacation that any of us had ever had. 2B is absolutely breathtaking and Jim and Carol Henry, the owners, have put great thought and care into seeing to the needs of their guests and making them feel pampered and cared for. The villa is in pristine condition and the villa managers, Roger and Colleen Brooker, were absolutely wonderful to us. They take care of the villa as if it were their own home, and they make the guests feel welcomed and cared for. We couldn't have asked for better attention and care.
2B Peter Bay is an exceptional property in an exceptionally beautiful setting. It was very hard to leave after our week there, but we have all decided that we will definitely be back next year, and we can't wait!

The house is very beautiful! I would not stay there again though. The company that manages it on the island has done a poor job maintaining the house. The house was not ready for our arrival and for the price we were paying to stay there it was very disappointing. The water was not turned on when we got there. We were ready to shower and go to bed by the time we got there, but had to wait on someone to come and turn the water on because he could not explain where it was. The hot tub took three days before we could use it because it had to heat up. The floors had been swept but not mopped. After walking around the house for ten minutes both of our feet were dirty. I could definately tell that the house had not been rented in awhile. It should have been cleaned before our arrival if it had been that long since last use. Also, there were so many rules on there kitchen aid refrigerator in order to use it. The owners need to consider purchasing a new one. Beautiful house,poorly maintained

This was truly a wonderful vacation. The staff at Luxury Retreats was extremly helpful and contributed highly to the positive aspects of the experience. Our only issue was an I-Pod that went missing during the mid-week cleaning process. It was intentionaly put in a drawer along with other items upon the arrival of the cleaning staff so it would not be left in the open. Within an hour of their departure it was noticed as missing. We decided not to persue the issue because it would have injected a negative experience into an otherwise perfect vacation. We also realized that there were safes provided which were not used, so in a way it was our own fault. We also figured that the person who took it must have needed it more than we did. It is important to note that we considered this a minor issue in what was otherwise a great experience.

villa experience is still the best value on the island, particularly in Peter Bay where the views are outstanding, beaches available at the foot of the villa\'s steps and accommodations that are excellent.

"The villa was absolutely amazing! We had a wonderful vacation. I should mention the first cleaning lady you sent, didn't do a lot (and managed to get her own laundry done). The next two woman were wonderful and left the villa spotless!"
