Cinnamon Tarn villa is a very nice villa located in Catherineberg on the north shore of Saint John. The villa can be reached from North Shore Road or Centerline Road, however the drive up John's Head road from North Shore road is a little rough (or fun...). We had five adults in this villa, two couples and a single and the layout was great for this. There are two identical "master suites", one on each end of the main floor and another beedroom up in a private loft area. The bed upstairs is a twin -trundle king, the loft has a separate balcony with a great view.
Here's our take on the pro's of this villa- the layout is awesome for two couples and the house has a great indoor sitting area with about 40 feet of sliding glass doors with full screens which offer a million dollar view out over Cinnamon Bay, Mary Point, and the BVIs. The view at this villa is absolutely spectacular and the breeze is constantly soothing up there. The villa is very private and would rate as "clothing optional" for those interested in that. There are wonderful, rounded stone showers in the two master baths that provide a great island-castle feel to every shower. All windows are screened and louvered and the property has an electric entry gate for privacy.
Here's our takes on the cons of this villa- there is no pool at this villa but there is a huge hot tub with a great view. I actually wished the hot tub was cooler...maybe I just wanted a pool. The villa does not have AC but during our stay (6/21-6/28) I was never HOT. At times the sounds outside (frogs/wind/etc.) made it a bit hard to sleep so AC would have been a nice option when desired.
Wrap-up: This villa was great and we really enjoyed the views, privacy, and wonderful house layout. We would stay here again anytime.
