Nestled in the Virgin Islands National Park lies Catherineberg, a piece of heaven high above Cinnamon Bay and the north shore of St. John. This well-established neighborhood offers an understated elegance, where nature and luxury go hand in hand. With only a handful of homes and properties—some family homes, and others that operate as vacation rental villas—Catherineberg is a small, exclusive, and sought-after neighborhood.
Branching off a single main one-lane thoroughfare, the neighborhood is marked at one entrance with historic Danish sugar plantation ruins, including a formidable, yet picturesque sugar mill. Catherineberg’s high elevation and north-facing orientation offer a cooler climate in a lush, jungle-like setting, where your herb garden, greens, and tropical fruit trees are sure to grow with ease. The homes here have been designed with care by professional architects, and some have been featured in architectural magazine spreads.
Panoramic views of the north shore and down island to the British Virgin Islands are truly captivating, offering various scenes throughout the day. Start your morning with a cup of coffee while watching as ferries, day sail catamarans, and opulent yachts navigate the stunning Sir Francis Drake Channel. By midday, the channel shines with the brilliant blues for which St. John’s north shore is so well known. As late afternoon approaches, the setting sun alights the sea, which glitters like a carpet of diamonds, and the day closes out with the fiery oranges and reds of sunset.
Catherineberg is just three miles outside St. John’s main town of Cruz Bay, yet it feels a world apart from the bustling collection of shops, restaurants, and bars. North shore beaches are just minutes away by car, and the unique, quaint town of Coral Bay is a 10-minute drive away. Catherineberg is bordered on most sides by Virgin Islands National Park, making this neighborhood an ideally peaceful retreat.
