Cinnamon Ridge 08/15/2003
Reviewers Rating: Great
Recently spent 8 days at Cinnamon Ridge. There were 8 of us in all and the villa accommodated us easily.

I rate the outdoor surroundings including the decks, the pool, the spa, the landscaping and the VIEW as ***** (5 stars). This villa has the best lot with the best view on the entire island IMHO. I spent hours gazing at the view! The pool is fabulous, with a waterfall and a bridge over the pool leading up into the landscaping. Wonderful deck furniture with lots of places to sit and read, take in the sun, eat, or just gaze out at the crystal clear blue water.

The villa has only one close neighbor (Cinnamon Bay Estate) so is very private. It is surrounded by National Park land and is up high on the hill overlooking Cinnamon Bay. Views extend from Peter Bay and several Northshore beaches all the way to Tortola and beyond. Be prepared for a bumpy ride to get to the villa from either Centerline or Northshore roads.

If I have a criticism it is that the villa is showing its age. It was built in the late 70's and really needs some updates. The downstairs was remodeled a number of years ago, but the upstairs is overdue. The bathrooms upstairs need new fixtures all around - the master bath shower just shoots out a mist that literally will not rinse soap off. The kitchen has the original appliances and could use some updates. Much of the furniture is the same as my last visit in 1990 and is showing wear. Now I admit I don't go down to the islands expecting the ultimate in modern luxury, but for the pricepoint of this villa, I think there are some alternative choices that offer a better value.

The villa has two bedrooms upstairs at either end of the house and three bedrooms down, all with balconies/outdoor deck access. Since the house is up high it gets good cooling breezes and I never felt the need for air conditioning.

Bottom line: Hey, you're in paradise! Enjoy it! And we certainly did!
