One of the best trips we have ever taken.
Jake and Sarah were the best hosts we’ve ever had. They checked in with us before, during and after our trip to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. The treehouse is perfect for a couple looking to get away from it all, and the screen porch/hammock has an unbelievable view of Coral Bay. This was our first trip to St. John, and Jake and Sarah helped make it one of the best trips we’ve ever had.
Thank you so much for taking time to write this review! We are so glad that you had a memorable time and enjoyed your visit to St John.
Sharing our cottage with guests like yourselves is what it’s all about.
Come back and see us!
Solitude in the tree tops
What a fun place to stay! The photos are really accurate and everything was just as advertised. My wife and I stayed 5 days here and it was perfect for 2 people. There was a full kitchen, a screened in porch, as well as a loft with a comfortable queen sized bed. We couldn't ask for much more!
It's also really close to all the restaurants in Coral Bay (which were all delicious). I think our favorite part was the privacy. You can hear people somewhat close to you, but there is no way you could see another human! A really nice feature for us!
One note - the stairs are no joke! 68 steps straight down the side of a mountain. That means 68 stairs straight up! Haha. I think we got used to them by the end of the trip, but it's not a place for anyone with mobility issues.
The Air conditioning was great! (we were there in August so we put it on at night)
We had access to beach chairs and a cooler which we used almost everyday.
Overall, an extremely clean & comfortable place to stay. I'll definitely check the availability here if we come back to St. John.
My husband, young son, and I had a wonderful stay at the Tropical Tree House during our recent trip to St. John! We loved being on the Coral Bay side as it felt more secluded and less touristy than the Cruz Bay area, but still with lot's to do! The Tree House was the perfect size for us and provided a great feel of seclusion with a gorgeous view from the screened in porch. It was also a huge plus to have a washer and dryer as it allowed us to pack lightly! We loved our visit and can't wait to go back!
Very nice, secluded home
Everything was exactly as advertised, and was therefore exactly what we expected. If you like what you see online, you will like the place. The owner was very helpful and responsive with our questions.
This is a lovely cottage! Spent 17 days here and would do it again.
The property is exactly as it appears in the photos. One must be able to climb the sixty some stairs but once you've done that you will adore this villa!
Charming and private vacation home
Tropical Treehouse is an oasis painted in tropical colors and offering a relaxed, welcoming respite. The cottage was very clean and had everything that was needed to start our vacation.The pictures are an accurate representation of what the cottage looks like but they don't fully capture the charm and beauty of it. Susan is very organized so all information is delivered well in advance of arrival. Directions to the cottage were sent as well as contact information for the owners, when and where to rent a car etc. Both Susan and Bob are very outgoing, friendly and helpful.
The Treehouse is aptly named as it is built on the side of Bordeaux Mountain among the trees with a view of Coral Bay beyond. The morning is filled with the sound of birds in the trees and the Island roosters! Coffee on the screened in porch was a visual delight and so relaxing! You can hear other people, at times, but you can't see anyone. The cottage is very private and safe with no need to lock the doors. There are 68 steps to the cottage but they are well lit with handrails. They are steep so the lighter your suitcase the better. We considered it part of our daily exercise!
Our eight days went by too quickly so we have already booked our return visit next February at the Tropical Treehouse. It is a delightful place to call "home" for a few days.
The Tropical Tree House is located about 750 feet up on Bordeaux Mountain. It is just a short one minute ride down the hill to Coral Bay where restaurants, bars, grocery and gift shops are located.
