“Stay at Treetops”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

My hubby & just spent 5 nights at Treetops in the Captain's Quarters. It was delightful. The room was everything we needed. The bed was comfortable. The outdoor shower had great water pressure & plenty of hot water. The natural setting was beautiful, secluded, & private. Breakfast each morning was great--warm delicious muffins or breakfast bread, yogurt, boiled egg, fresh fruit, & French pressed coffee. While you enjoy your coffee, you watch beautiful tropical birds feed on honey water. The ones we saw had yellow chests. Hank was a superb host with great tips. The last day he even vacuum the sand out of our jeep so we would not get charged additional cleaning fees. We will stay there again & highly recommend it!

Room Tip: The captains quarter had a fridge, microwave, & AC though we did need the AC.

Hank is a gracious host with a deluge of knowledge about the islands and island life. We stayed in the first mates room and it was perfect. We fell asleep to the sound of birds and crickets each night. Treetops is nestled in the "guts" of hills surrounding fish bay. It is quiet and charming. Don't expect the Ritz or a resort atmosphere coming here, but you will definitely feel at home. Air Conditioning was entirely unnecessary and we were very comfortable in the evening. What else can we say? The other positive reviews are spot on. We will definitely be coming back.

You will need a conveyance to get you from fish bay into town, but we would recommend that to you no matter where u stay on the island.

Thanks again Captain Hank!!

Great hosts, great location. We stayed at Treetops in mid February for 6 nights, in the Captain Quarters. The place is very close to Cruz Bay and at the same time so isolated that you are totally immersed in the nature. It has a great price/value balance. No luxury, and I would not want it in St John, but it has all you need, including an outdoor shower that is a treat in itself. Hank and Karen are wonderful hosts, we spent a day with them on the boat, and it felt like spending time with old friend. With the added benefit of great snorkeling places and great sandwiches. This was our belated 25th anniversary trip and Hank made sure to have a chilled bottle of champagne on the boat to celebrate. Already thinking about going back next winter

My husband and I stayed at Treetops for 4 nights over February break. It is the perfect place, and in my opinion, the only place to stay in Treetops. The rooms and atmosphere create the feeling of living in the trees as per the name of this B&B. We stayed in the First Mate's room which was very comfortable. Though there is no A/C, you do not need it. Thanks to the tree coverage, fan, and plenty of windows, the room is always cool and comfortable. It is also very private, with your own balcony to watch the stars. Breakfast was fantastic. Every morning there were coffee, fresh pastries, hard boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt, and juice. Though some individuals might be turned off by eating breakfast with strangers, it was actually a lot of fun. We lucked out in the fact that all the guests got along really well with each other and breakfast was shared with hours of laughter. The best part of Treetops are the owners Hank and Karen. They are both warm and inviting. One piece of advice, if Hank recommends somewhere to go or a place to eat, follow his advice. That man knows what he is talking about. Everything he recommended, including what to order, was spot on. Also, make sure you get him to take you out on his boat. He showed us some of the best snorkeling in St. John. Needless to say, I am trying to figure out how soon I can get back there to stay with them again.

Fair warning: the road can be a little scary the first time because of the switch backs, but you get used to them quickly and it is a lot of fun. Also, when driving in, ignore the dead end sign and continue straight staying near the coast to get to Treetops.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Treetops for five nights, and it was absolutely beautiful. The guest house is surrounded by lush greenery that is filled with wildlife. Fall asleep to the sound of tree frogs, and watch the bananaquits and deer pass by during the day. We also really loved our host, Hank. He's a really sweet man and is a wealth of knowledge. He made us feel really welcomed and comfortable. The best part of the trip as other reviewers have stated was, the snorkeling trip that Hank took us on. He truly appreciates the natural beauty of the island and will be quick to recommend the best beaches and places to visit. Treetops has an amazing location in Fish Bay. It's close enough for a short drive to town, but far enough to find tranquility at the end of long day. Thank you Hank.

Me and my wife had a fantastic stay for three days and nights at Tree Tops. We stayed in the Captains Quarters which had adequate space, fridge, futon, and queen size bed. We really enjoyed the serene feel of being in the woods and the peacefulness of the atmosphere. Hank was a great host we enjoyed some pleasant conversations in our mornings while having coffee and fresh bakery. He also took us out on the boat which was one of the highlights of our trip getting a more personal view of the Caribean, also doing some snorkeling! Obviously all the reviews were right on Tree Tops being a great place to stay with great hosts.

This is everything the reviews make it out to be. Although the first time driving there was a little harrowing (driving on the WRONG side of the road took some getting used to), the terrain and serenity were more than worth the drive. It's close enough to Cruz Bay that you can quickly run into town to get whatever you need, but far enough away to avoid any traffic or other distractions of urban/suburban US. You can get anywhere on St. John inside of an hour, even keeping to the speed limit of 20, which was easier than you'd think.

Hank was an amazing host (Karen was snowed in back home while we were there), and went out of his way several times to make our stay even more comfortable and relaxing. Our day on the Pot Luck with Hank and another couple was probably the highlight of our trip, and the snorkeling he got us to was by far the best my wife or I had ever experienced.

We will definitely be staying at Treetops the next time we're in St. John. The hospitality, breakfasts, location, and all the extra effort made Treetops the perfect spot for my wife and I to getaway. I only wish we had spent all seven nights of our vacation there rather than spending a disappointing two nights in St. Thomas at the end of our trip.

Room Tip: We stayed in the First Mate's Headquarters, and we believe it's the best of the three accomm...
