Or snorkel in privacy in the "back yard" ocean. And watch dramatic sunsets from the luxurious spa or lounge chairs on the upper or lower deck as the end of daylight glistens off the trees and Caribbean ocean.

Mampoo Hill (designed by the most famous architect on island who also did the iconic Mongoose Junction) was meticulously designed to take advantage of its fabulous, close up ocean views--from EVERY room. This rare, beautiful, open air island home has a huge air conditioned master bedroom with a double dressing area, king size bed, queen size futon couch, library, ceiling fans, TV and internet connection while the guest bedroom has twin beds (that can be made up as a king), a ceiling fan, AC, remote controlled cable TV and a full bathroom.

Why Candace Kaspers chose Saint John

This is an authentic beach front property with beauty and modern conveniences, 20 yards from the ocean on St. John, USVI. What's not to like?

What makes this House unique

Fabulous, private snorkeling in your own back yard; a double hammock within 10 feet of the ocean between two palm trees; 1 acre of property; privacy; all the modern conveniences yet a newly renovated "island" home which takes advantage of its views and tradewinds.

We stayed 6 nights and only wish we would have stayed longer. If you are looking for a private, secluded, romantic get away it does not get any better than this! The sound of the waves while looking at the lights of St Thomas while soaking in the hot tub was PERFECT! We rented the Jeep while we stay there and I would highly recommend it also. The home is very remote and you will want transportation if you stay here. If we ever make it back to St John this will be where we will stay again!!!! Thank you so much for a great vacation!

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        Coming back!

They help you out, answer all your questions, and Jennifer was very accessible, making the stay very smooth! We had a FABULOUS TIME at Mampoo Hill... the place was very clean, with very comfortable beds, and overall was even better than anticipated.

                                                                        Cant wait to get back to STJ ... And will definitely book Mampoo Hill again!

The open-air floor plan was great and the fans kept us cool enough. Although sleeping on the comfy beds in the a/c bedrooms was great! From having good tips from Jennifer to Craig meeting us at the dock to the time we left, everything was great. Had fun watching the birds enjoy the sugar and seeing the iguana family. We saw 3 of them! Appreciated the nice touch of the cheese & crackers in the refrigerator for us to enjoy the first night. Loved listening to the surf sounds all the time. Very relaxing Would highly recommend Mampoo Hill when traveling to St. John. Rent the jeep that is available. You will need it to get around to the various beaches. Thanks so much for sharing Mampoo Hill with us.

We have one complaint only -- we had to get used to the noise of the crashing waves every night (but we survived). Rent the jeep.
