About Phyllis Hall, Owner

This is a picture of Dora, the explorer (My grandson Jordan named her) and Phyllis Hall, on the right. Taken in front of Hillcrest Guest House, St. John, US Virgin Islands.

Pets do not have access to guest suites at all. You may ask to meet pets if you so desire.

Phyllis Hall, Owner purchased this hotel in 1966

Why Phyllis Hall, Owner chose Cruz Bay

Hillcrest Guest House was given to me by my Mother Ethlyn Lindqvist Harthman Hall.

What makes this hotel unique

I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and hope they 'feel' the beauty of St. John that I feel. Created a zen like atmosphere, especially in the garden.

Not so good

  • 2 of 5

We were under the impression this was a B&B, so were surprised that breakfast consisted of a dozen eggs and a pound of bacon in the refrigerator. Bed was ok, but directly outside the window (Orchid Suite) was a motion sensor light — near the shrubbery — that went on and off and on and off all night long. The neighbors had yappy dogs that carried on all night, and Phyllis' Rottweiler (110#) growled to add to the scene. Oh, and there was a reggae band somewhere whose bass line entered our dreams. The place is perched on the top of a steep hill, and unless you're in fairly good physical condition, you'll need to call a taxi ($4/person + $4 for the call), and there's no phone in the apt and Phyllis isn't around.
