This was hands down one of the best vacation retreats I've ever taken. Off the Grid, Off the Beaten Path and Off the Charts- phenomenal! Part tree house, part sail boat/sail loft, the house is a labor of love, very thoughtful and inviting. The views were spectacular, trade winds welcoming and the night sky felt within reach with a gazillion stars. I opted not to rent a jeep and although strenuous hiking it was well worth the effort. There are a number of amazing beaches and ruins within hiking distance if you are up for what I came to call a "Bootcamp for the Soul". Off the Beaten Track (copy in the house) will be your bible, it is dog-eared for good reason. This is the best place to unplug and decompress- listen to the cacophony of nature, and reenter your sensory world. Allison went over and above to ensure that my stay was enjoyable and memorable. I would go back in a heartbeat. Can't imagine a better home-base for a revival of the spirit. This gem way up on the hillside made for a genuine eco-adventure on St. John.
