Gibney's luxury cottages are located on the extraordinary Hawksnest Beach of St John, US Virgin Islands. The quiet charm of St. John is irresistible. To reach it, travelers take the short passage from St Thomas by boat. There are no landing strips, traffic lights or fast food restaurants, just breathtaking beauty. Two-thirds of the island is National Park, thanks to Lawrence Rockefeller's donation. The offshore volcanic topography features many small cays and rocks on a shallow bottom. It is one of the premier dive sites. The Beach Cottage is a one bedroom king size suite and is located directly on the white sand beach. This one of a kind cottage has marble floors, a fully equipped kitchen and a large porch sitting directly on the beach. There are indoor and outdoor showers as well as central A/C. This is a wonderful cottage in an absolutely spectacular setting. The North Shore/Catherineberg area, an exclusive, centrally-located lush neighborhood, is nestled within the Virgin Islands National Park and provides fabulous North Shore views, including Maho Bay, Francis Bay and Cinnamon Bay. You'll find mostly rental villas and second homes in this desirable neighborhood, which is just a 5-10 minute drive from North Shore beaches. Catherineberg is perfect for vacationers looking for seclusion and proximity to beaches. Just a 15-minute drive from Cruz Bay and Coral Bay, Catherineberg is the perfect home base if you want to explore the island, experiencing all that St. John has to offer. You'll also be very close to the Catherineberg ruins, the site of a working sugar mill and plantation in the mid-1700s. Both Centerline and the North Shore Road are accessible from the Catherineberg road. While this road is only partially paved and somewhat difficult to traverse at times, the trip is well worth the seclusion and magnificent views you'll find in Catherineberg.
