Amazing honeymoon experience!! Island is back and thriving!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our honeymoon (May 20-May 27, 2018), and it was picture perfect! For those wondering if the island has recovered, IT HAS! The water and beaches are the most beautiful I have ever seen in my life (and I grew up near the Gulf Coast where we have white sandy beaches and beautiful emerald water). This house is nestled in the quiet area of the Peter Bay is very private.


The house is perfectly located! Trunk Bay is a short 2-3 min drive as is Cinnamon Bay. And Maho Bay (where the sea turtles are!!) is about a 5-6 min drive. Cruz Bay, the central hub of the island where all of the restaurants and shops are, is about a 12-15 min drive. The Cruz Bay side of the island has seemingly no residual hurricane issues (Coral Bay is still getting cleaned up as of May 2018). I would recommend renting a car to get around though. It made everything much easier, and we could explore all over the island. We used Conrad Sutton, and it was great.


THE VIEW!!! It's breathtaking! We spent the majority of our time that we were at the house sitting on the porch taking in the view. The house itself is on a steep, awkward driveway that takes some finagling to get in and out of. Denise and David live upstairs but stay entirely to themselves unless you need something. There isn't a ton of space on the bottom floor of the house, so I wouldn't recommend this for a family. But it worked for the two of us perfectly! The kitchen is also pretty small, but it worked fine for our needs - sandwiches and breakfast. The queen bed was slightly softer than we are used to and woke up with a little back pain. The AC is only available in the bedroom, but the islands weather is so nice, it wasn't bad without it in the kitchen. There is a gas grill and snorkel gear at the house that we used at every beach. The bathroom was spacious and really nice and stocked with plenty of towels! And again, the views absolutely CANNOT BE BEAT!


The walkway down to the private beach was too steep for us. We tried it twice, and by the end of the second time, we were done! But it was also a beautiful beach and very very private. We never saw anyone else down there our entire stay. And there is amazing snorkeling just off the beach as well.

We would absolutely stay here again! Trip of a lifetime for us! Thank you!!!

The pictures don't lie!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing, picture perfect getaway, this is it. This was our first trip to St. John and we checked out pretty much every inch of the island by land and by boat, and could not find another spot that we would have preferred. The view is amazing and when we were at the house, spent most of our time on the comfy couch on the deck taking it in. The house is well stocked with everything you need, including a great gas grill, making it easy to have a private dinner with one of the best views on the island. We definitely took advantage of the snorkel gear for use at our basically private beach, as well as some of the other great beaches on the island. No TV, but the WIFI was very reliable for streaming movies in the evening.

The location is great…quiet and away from it all, but only about 15 minutes from Cruz Bay, and close to several beaches. Ideal. We took the Owner’s advice on renting from Conrad Sutton Car Rental, which was a life saver as we could park there when in town. They also gave us spot on recommendations for hikes and dinners out.

Based on the above, this place is totally 5 stars and a great value. The house itself has more of a cottage feel than 5 star luxury, but it is clean, comfortable, well stocked and had everything we needed for a great stay!

Perfection in every way

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolute gem. My husband & I had a perfect week (despite slightly imperfect weather to start with) relaxing, swimming, snorkeling & generally exploring the beautiful beaches & coves right on our doorstep. David & Denise were excellent hosts - accommodating, responsive & helpful. The apartment was clean, comfortable & well-equipped with just about everything you could think of. The location is phenomenal, in a totally dreamy neighbourhood (but still very secluded) with views & easy access to idyllic beaches. We managed perfectly well without a car for a week; if we had another week there & wanted to do more island exploring we might have rented a car, but it certainly isn't a necessity. We would recommend enjoying the fabulous seclusion of Peter Bay, swimming over to Little Cinnamon & exploring the small submerged plane wreck, snorkeling at Maho Bay & swimming with sea turtles. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely Amazing - Perfect Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

Came for the second week of our honeymoon - had an amazing time. Perfect location, easy to get to any north shore beach. David and Denise were more than accommodating, and extremely helpful with any questions we had. The beach was beautiful – we had it to ourselves for the first 4 days of our stay. You are able to snorkle right off the beach, and can reach the nearby reef in less than 5 minutes. We tried to see as many beaches as possible on the island, and highly recommend some of the more remote beaches – Salt Pond was a favorite. Hiking was great, and the food was spot on. We made a few meals at the house, as it had everything you need to cook (and grill). Already looking for some time next year to return!

Wonderful Week on Peter Bay

  • 5 of 5

Simple, neat, clean, and everything you might need for a wonderful week on St. John! Website photos and details accurately represent this property. Having typically stayed at large resorts, we found this experience very private, peaceful, and relaxing. As two 66 year olds in relatively good shape, we found the path to the beautiful beach to be no problem. We would stay at Suite On The Beach again in a heartbeat! Thank you Denise and David!

A perfect stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

I really can't say enough good things about the suite on the beach, at Peter Bay! My wife and I just spent a week in the suite, celebrating our 15th anniversary. Everything was really was perfect. The view really can't be expressed though picture, and even on the 7th morning, we we're still stunned to look our over Peter Bay. The suite is well stocked with everything you might need. There's an abundance of clean towels, kitchenware, snorkel gear, and lots of thoughtful touches. David was a wonderful host, and always had excellent suggestions of places to explore and visit, and places to eat, and was an all-around laid back and good guy. The private beach was absolutely beautiful, and always empty. It was an easy walk/swim to little Cinnamon Beach, which was larger and also stunning. The suite was very comfortable, and the AC in the bedroom works perfectly. Each evening we enjoyed listening to the tree frogs, and there's nothing quite like a midnight swim under a full moon, in the clearest waters imaginable. I would highly suggest this location to anyone looking for a relaxing and beautiful setting, away from the bustle of Cruz Bay!
