                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About: We are a family of six with small children. We live in Baltimore, MD and own a restaurant called Mother's. We come to St. John 2 or 3 times a year and never get bored. Our very active children enjoy the pool, hottub, ping pong table and wildlife surrounding the home. We encourage you to treat our house like your own and would be happy to assist in making your vacation plans.

                      Why Gift Hill:
                      One of our family members learned to cook in St. John and resided there for 4 years. After many vacations, we knew it was the perfect spot for our second home. 3/4 of the island is a US National Park. This creates a perfect play ground to explore the beaches, ocean and peaceful community. The hedonistic vibe of the locals and great restaurants create a great atmosphere. Short boating trips to other islands make this US territory even more attractive.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our family has been vacationing in St. John for 17 years. We bought this brand new home in 2008 and couldn't be happier! The views of the sunset and privacy of the lot are priceless. Bannana and Payua Trees surround the property. The beautiful flowers and landscaping and wildlife ie. deer, iguanas, geckos and hummingbirds surround the property. The location of the house on a high ridge allow for trade winds and a perfect spot to watch the boats floating around the island.
