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!
