“Paradise...Found!”
Reviewed 30 November 2010

The name says it all!! We arrived to find ourselves surrounded by a lush forest of green. Our stay was nothing short of peaceful and relaxing. EXACTLY what we were looking for from the every day turmoils of "real life." We definately found our escape at Treetops as well as new friends, Karen and Hank. We can NOT say enough of their hospitality. This exquisite piece of paradise is tranquil both inside and out. Our room was immaculate, clean and we certainly had no trouble falling asleep after a long day of island play once our heads hit the pillows on the extremely comfortable bed.
We thoroughly enjoyed waking up in the morning and having our coffee on the tiny circular stone patio overlooking a blissful stream that's luxurious sound reminded us that the art of relaxation is something not to be forgotten in the hussle and bussle of traveling.
If you are looking for a B&B with many amenities and attention of a hotel but desire a quiet, and serene atmosphere - you have no choice but to book your stay at Treetops!! enclose you away from it allwe I can NOT say enough for Treetops.
We fell in love with St. John and will certainly be returning and, of course, could think of nowhere else to stay but here.

We stayed at Treetops for 2 nights for a short trip to St John after being on St Thomas for over a week. We usually do a day trip to St John but wanted to explore more of the island. This place is great. It is a short ride out of town but you will feel like you are away from it all. Karen and her husband are friendly and helpful. The room was clean with everything we needed. They even provide a cooler, beach chairs and and beach towels. A few drinks int eh fridge and some munchies.
It is quite except for the early mornig birds that enjoyed their breakfest when the sun came up.
It also got us out of town and to other parts of the island. I recommend a trip to east end and kayaking and snorkleing.
There is no TV so plan on peace and quite.
Karen gave us ideas for places to eat. And the fresh fruit and baked goods were a great way to start our day.
We would stay here again in a minute. Highly recommend Treetops.

Wow, talk about a surprise. I researched for a couple days on where to stay- let's face it, St. John is expensive, but this place was very reasonably priced. I booked this B&B for two nights, and I think we ended staying three. Best thing about this place (of the many?) Karen and Hank. Great people. They are amazing at keeping in contact, great with instructions, and wonderful to have breakfast with. Next best thing? Attention to detail. Everything is well done- the place is immaculate, has a really cool nautical theme, and has everything from a BBQ grill to rum and coke waiting for you in your room. We traveled 10 days in the VIs, and this was by far the best B&B we stayed at.
It is in the treetops, and not on a beach, so be ready for that- but, the hill it's on is surrounded by trees, and there is a really neat creek-thing in the back- beautiful. It is about 10ish minutes from town- fun drive. Room we stayed in had two a/c units, fridge, nice bathroom, etc. The shower is outside, which is really cool- the girl was hesitant at first, but she was sold after the first shower.
Rent a Jeep (you'll need one on St. John), get a bushwacker at Woody's, and stay here. This is where I'll stay from now on- no need to pay $400 a night- and hey, you don't get Karen and Hank at those places!

I booked 2 nights at Treetops, and ended up staying longer, with a great satisfaction of ever encountering such an inspirational, cozy, friendly environment and quarters.

Their website http://stjohnbedandbreakfast.com, explains it truthfully, "home away from home".

Hank and Karen could not have been more hospitable, providing whatever necessary to make our stay the most enjoyable experience.

The majority of Bed and Breakfasts may have a judgment on having children on their property. With my 5 year-old daughter, it couldn't have been more exciting for her, and Hank and Karen welcomed her with warmth.

It was an absolute delight, and inspirational stay at the beautiful Treetops.

This is the best lodging experience I have ever had. If that first sentence is not enough to convince you to stay at Tree Tops, I’ll elaborate. The principal attraction of Tree Tops is its owners, Hank & Karen. They are thoroughly good, salt-of-the earth people. They made me feel more than welcome. They shared their knowledge of St. John’s hidden jewels (Francis Bay, Vie’s Beach) with me. They made restaurant recommendations that were spot-on. The fruit, muffins and coffee put out for breakfast were fresh and delicious.

Apart from Hank & Karen, the accommodations were great. My room (First Mate’s Quarters) is designed so that you feel like you’re outdoors, even when you’re indoors. It was clean, tastefully decorated and contained some great extras (cookies, beer, rum and other goodies). It was wonderful to wake up to the sun coming over the mountains, and to sit out on the deck at night and plot what I must do to make St. John my home one day. If you like your ego pampered, you can stay at Caneel or the Westin. If you appreciate St. John and its inhabitants for what they are intrinsically, with or without Caneel or the Westin, then stay with Hank & Karen. With the money you save, rent a jeep, go to Vie’s, share that beach with three other souls, have a conch fritter, and thank God for Tree Tops.
