20 yards from the ocean, Mampoo Hill is a special island beach house. Read a book 10 feet from the lapping sea in a double hammock between two palm trees. Or snorkel in privacy in the "back yard" ocean. And watch dramatic sunsets from the luxurious spa or lounge chairs on the upper deck as the end of daylight glistens off the trees and Caribbean ocean. (Note: We only accept DIRECT bookings)
Mampoo Hill was designed to take advantage of its fabulous, close up ocean views--from every room. This 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, VCR/DVD 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. Both have spectacular beach front views. Enjoy a beautifully renovated kitchen, a gas grill for outdoor cooking and al fresco dining.

This is a beach front property, 20 yards from the ocean on St. John, which is like a private island. What's not to like?
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; all the modern conveniences yet a newly renovated "island" home which takes advantage of its views and tradewinds.
This home absolutely exceeded our expectations! WOW was the first words out of our mouth's as we walked through the front door! 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!
The stay was fabulous! The amount of communication and information provided beforehand was so appreciated. 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!
Husband, son & daughter-in-law and myself stayed a week. The house was more than I expected. 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 soooo...loved our Mampoo Hill vacation! It exceeded our expectations all around! What a lovely beach home which was perfect for us! Your staff is great, too! And thanks again for opening your home to us!"
We can't say enough! Mampoo Hill is magical! My wife, nine year old daughter, and myself spent a fantastic week her. The owners make the process easy and the on island managers are great! We are planning our return now.
Mampoo Hill is incredible. The house is excellent. The beach is great. We cannot wait to return. 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.
