“Loved our stay at Treetops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

My husband and I just returned from 2 weeks in the USVI, including 3 nights at Treetops, and we wish we could have stayed longer. The First Mate's Quarters was cute and comfortable. Although not air conditioned, the screened windows and fans kept us cool at night and allowed us to enjoy the songs of the tree frogs and to watch the lightening storms at night. The room and patio were very private, and the fridge, microwave, and snacks provided everything we needed. We enjoyed being able to borrow beach chairs and coolers for Trunk Bay. Hank was a great host over breakfast, and we would have listened to his stories all day. He gave us great tips on post office, where to park and leave luggage, and a great deli for picnic food. You definitely need to rent a car to get here, which increases the cost of the stay, but it also provides freedom to explore the beautiful beaches and hiking trails around the island. My husband found the roads fun to drive, but I have to admit, I found them a bit harrowing (on the whole island, not just near the B&B.). I'm already trying to figure out when I can return to St John!

Could not ask for more in the way of beauty, peaceful and restful surroundings, or gracious, remarkable hosts. From glorious mornings and breakfasts with great conversation, to excellent beach and restaurant suggestions, Karen and Hank are sensitive to their guests privacy needs while giving great travel advice.
St. John is a wonderful vacation spot, but Treetops makes it personal and special. Loved the outdoor shower, breeze at night, glorious mountain views and full moon over Fish Bay. Will be back before long.

Room Tip: Any room is a good one. Walking the hills was better than any indoor fitness center could possibly...

This is a fantastic place to stay. Karen and Hank are so friendly and helpful. Their reviews of local restaurants and snorkeling were wonderful. We were able to unplug and relax on their porch.

Taking "Potluck" out to Hank's secret snorkeling locations afforded us the opportunity to see different marine life (sharks) than we were able to see from locations accessible from shore. We will be back!

My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights in April, 2013. Karen made us feel very much at home in her little B&B. Treetops was just the place for us to relax and enjoy the birds, tree frogs and the sounds of nature at night. Our room, The Captain's Quarters, had two air conditioners but we never used them, preferring to leave the windows open to hear the frogs and other critters at night.

Karen was a great source of information for our daily adventures and also provided coolers, beach chairs, big towels, a bird ID book, guide books, and maps for our use. All that in addition to very nice breakfasts that always included fresh fruit, juice, coffee, baked goods and friendly conversation. The breakfast room is also a great place to watch birds (bananaquits, pearly-eyed thrashers, hummingbirds) in the morning.

It takes 10-15 minutes of time to drive the rental jeep from Cruz Bay to Treetops. Driving on St. John takes a little getting used to. Between the steep hills, narrow roads, and left-lane orientation, it is not what I'm used to... Even so, after a couple days, we were quite comfortable getting around the island and making the trip from Treetops to Cruz Bay and back, even after dark. It was worth the drive to get out of the noise and bustle of Cruz Bay and into the sounds of nature at Treetops.

This is a fantastic place to stay. Nice bed and breakfast. Wonderful hosts. We stayed here four nights and were very pleased. Affordable. We actually stayed here May 2012, but that wasn't a choice on the drop down menu. I just didn't get to writing a review untilnow. I am because I really believe in this place; it's wonderful!

We were so very happy to discover Karen & Hank's hideaway . Comfortable and well thought out for privacy and peace. We felt very "taken care of" from the tasty breakfasts to the outings on Pot Luck. Small fridge in the room, soaps & lotions, ceiling fan, great deck--every need covered. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness.

Made our trip, what a great guy! We took the 3 kids (10,8, and 5) out on the boat and Hank couldn't of been a better Captain. He took up to all the great snorkeling spots, would stop and give us some history about various parts of the island, and was wonderful with the kids. This really was the highlight of our trip!
