Our stay at Treetops exceeded any expectations we had. From start to finish, Hank, the owner, went out of his way to accommodate every need we had. Sitting on our deck in the evenings, and mornings was superb. We happened to be there for the full moon, which only enhanced an already glorious vacation spot. It's far enough from the hustle and bustle of town, yet close enough to get there whenever you'd want to.
All the information about the island was available to us, along with Hank's personal knowledge. He was a genuine person who cared about people and was passionate about the values and ideas we shared. We spent mornings together at breakfast which was set every morning in the screened dining area where we could watch the birds flitter about. Some evenings Hank offered us, along with another couple staying there fresh caught tuna on the bbq with other goodies for a small appetizer with some wine while chatting about the marvels of the day.
The breezes from our bed in the screened room were serene. When we returned home, we missed the birds chirping and the sound of the trees swaying in the wind in the evenings. It was our first visit to St. John, and you can be sure it won't be our last, and we hope to stay with Hank and Karen again in the near future.
The island is breathtaking. Every turn of the road led us to gasp at the sheer beauty of our surroundings. The beaches abound, as do the vistas. Great restaurants when you want them, and trails to hike, along with the stores if you are so inclined.
We thank Hank and Karen for sharing their piece of paradise, and look forward to more ventures next time. Perhaps next time we'll get out on the water with Hank.
