DESCRIPTION OF PETER BAY BEACH HOUSE
Sitting on Peter Bay beach within Great Cinnamon Bay, Peter Bay Beach House is surrounded with lush tropical landscaping. The surf, the tree frogs and the steady breeze of the trade winds add to the musical ambiance. Old world elegance greets and embraces you upon arrival and holds you captive until your reluctant departure.
Mahogany and ipe are the two main woods used throughout the house, giving it a strong sense of age and grandeur. [For those unfamiliar, ipe is a hardwood from Brazilian rainforests; so hard and dense that it has been known to bend nails. It is mold, fire and weather-resistant, thereby perfectly suited for a tropical beach house.]
The colonnaded main house is separated from the two-story guesthouse by a lap pool set among the lush gardens. The master bedroom – which encompasses the majority of the 2nd floor of the main house – includes a fireplace, a deep soaking tub, a massage room, and an outdoor shower; it also has a balcony complete with chaises overlooking the British Virgin Islands and the beautiful Cinnamon Bay. The remaining section of the 2nd floor includes a ‘children’s’ bedroom with bunk beds – full lower/single upper. This shares the master bathroom thru a separate private door.
The guesthouse bedrooms, each with king-sized mahogany bed plus single sleigh bed also have their own balconies with similar views to the master, and expansive en-suite bathrooms complete with toiletries and bathrobes. Sarongs are in all the bedrooms for use during your stay. Also available is an inflatable queen-sized bed, if needed for extra guests. All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned.
Mahogany French doors line the walls of the great room, connecting it directly to the outdoors. This is a home where the outdoors are part of the indoors and vice-versa. Over-sized furniture and Persian rugs adorn this space. A baby grand piano waits patiently in the corner for someone to play her but she does not go unnoticed. Terra cotta-tiled floors on the main level forgive sand traipsed thru the house. This is a beach house that has a sense of formality but ease and lightness rule.
On the veranda, a solid 12’ ipe dining table, made with love and sweat by the owner, at the instance of his wife, is where you will create the best memories. Eating and drinking into the afternoon and night as the sound of the surf muffles the roars of your laughter.
From the large and shaded terrace or from the beach on a chaise lounge or hammock, you can while your day away watching pelicans diving and boats sailing in the distance to and from the British Virgin Islands. Feeling energetic? Snorkel the bay or try one of the dozens of hiking trails in the National Park. By night, stretch out and stargaze, with a possible rum in hand, as you inhale the delicious aromas emitting from the kitchen. One very smart person in your party organized a private chef to take care of you, perhaps..
