Treetops

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 September 2017

Hoping everyone at Treetops and the rest of the island we fell in love with are okay. Hank made such an impression on us that we were ready to make the island our home. We're very concerned about everyone's safety.

Thank you so much. We are safe in MA but our hearts are broken for the devastation our island home suffered. Treetops is fine, thanks to solid construction and a tucked-in location. And lots and lots of prayers.
We will be back down there as soon as we can to help out others and open our rooms to those in need. Thank you again!

What a beautiful place. We stayed for two nights and I wish it could have been longer. This is a perfect getaway, in a quiet and tranquil location with nature all around but with the access of Cruz Bay just a ten minute drive. Friendly owners, nothing is too much trouble, everything you need is provided. I could keep writing, but to sum it up, AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING, we will be back.

Thank you Amanda! Now that you know where we are (and how easy it is to get from Tortola) you can come back another time - and hopefully I will be there next time. Hank said you were delightful guests and hopes you come back as well. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

My family stayed at Treetops for two weeks, and it was beyond perfect. This is my third time staying at Treetops, but it was the first time that I stayed there with my wife and child. First, the basics. Treetops is a 10-15 minute drive from Cruz Bay. That short drive puts you in a calm, quiet, peaceful mountainside. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters, which has one queen bed and one full day bed. There is a 1/2 bathroom indoors, and a shower outdoors. There is a mini-kitchen, with a small fridge and a microwave oven. Everything is clean and well-organized. All of these factors are important, but they're not the reason you should stay at Treetops.

Stay because of Hank and Karen, the owners. Why have an anti-septic, superficial experience at a hotel, where the workers, even if they did want to talk to you, are probably prohibited or discouraged from doing so by corporate policy? Hank knows St. John (land and sea) like few other people. It's because of Hank that I know about the beach at Lameshur Bay, which is absolutely gorgeous and thankfully beyond what the masses are willing to do to get to a beach. Hank took us on an excursion aboard his boat, Pot Luck II, to a peaceful cove on a nearby island, where there is excellent snorkeling. In this cove, there's a boat that makes excellent pizza (that's not a typo). My little girl and wife swam in crystal clear water, and when everyone was hungry, we got pizza. Hank's landside restaurant recommendation was spot-on. Most importantly, Hank doted on my daughter, and listened to her as she explained her 4 year-old world time and again.

Karen is a wonderful person as well. Though she wasn't in St. John during this last stay, she checked in from time to time to make sure everything was alright. Who does that? During my previous stays, Karen was beyond attentive, and her homemade pastries had me anticipating breakfast as I went to sleep. Karen exudes tranquility and peace; you half expect her to levitate.

If you prefer connecting with the people who live in the places you visit, and with the place itself, Treetops is for you. During this last stay, we went to one of the resorts on the island to taste their gelato (the gelato was recommended by Hank). The gelato was great, but that canned, anti-septic, Fantasy Island feeling had me itching to get out of there as soon as we were done with the gelato.

I can't picture staying anywhere else on St. John.

Room Tip: All rooms have acess to the deck, offering a great view of the valley

Wow! Thanks for your very kind words Juan! As you know, we love St. John too, and we also know how important peoples' vacations are so we try to make it as special as possible. I'm so sorry to have missed you and your family, but I'm sure there will be a "next time". Thank you so much for choosing Treetops AGAIN, and we look forward to seeing you down the road.

How do I love thee Treetops - let me count the ways. The chorus of birds singing all around you. The quiet, peaceful tranquility. The wonderful hosts Karen and Hank. The outdoor shower with the glistening rainbow in the morning. The beautiful long deep sleeps. The very comfortable and affordable Captain's Quarters. The wonderful snorkeling with Captain Hank. The fish barbecue and dinner for two outside under the stars at a special table for two. The romance, love and life in the air. A perfect vacation from the madness.

Room Tip: Just go and don't look back.

Stay with Karen and Hank if you can! everything is done exceptionally well. I had a great stay there and wish that I did not have to leave! They are wonderful hosts and are very warm and kind people, you will feel right at home. Their units all have private outdoor entrances so you feel like you have your own space, but there is also a very nice common area which is very well decorated and a great place to hang out. They are located a bit out of town in a peaceful forest on the mountain; good idea to have a car, or hitchhike if you're comfortable with it (which we did and loved, and met a lot of great people), but it can be a bit tough to get to otherwise. Walkable to good swims/snorkeling in Klein Bay and hiking. Great place to absorb St. John love and restore your soul.
