About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

'TREE HOUSE' is a multilevel retreat high on Mamey Peak. There is a 200° view of the ocean. You can see the BVI islands of Norman, Salt, Peter, Cooper, Virgin Gorda, Beef and Tortola to the east and Jost Van Dyke & Thatch to the north. There is a continual breeze. You will also have the pleasure of our magnificent sun & moon rises.

TREE HOUSE is a comfortable three bedroom, three bath home. One bedroom with king bed is off the main deck, smaller bedroom with a queen bed is on the entrance level and the third bedroom with twin beds or king is on the lower level. The atmosphere of the home is informal. There are four levels to the home, all under one roof and each level connects another with a half flight of stairs.

TREE HOUSE has an excellent kitchen with lots of counter space, and is furnished with microwave, refrigerator, gas stove, coffee maker, toaster oven and blender. A counter bar separates the kitchen from the dining area. The upper living area has two couches (one is a pull out), reading chairs and great views. Ceramic tile floors, painted wood and tropical prints create a cool and comfortable interior. There is satellite tv in the living area and master bedroom. The home has DSL and wifi and also a printer for your boarding passes.

TREE HOUSE has an upper dining and sitting deck with gas grill. A lower deck has a large sunken hot tub with maximum privacy.

TREE HOUSE is a well maintained home with established plantings in a quiet, private area, about six miles from Cruz Bay center. TREE HOUSE offers total privacy and seclusion in a quiet, wooded area. A mile down from the home brings you to the NP beaches of Francis Bay and Maho Bay for some delightful snorkeling or quiet sun bathing on warm white sand. A vehicle is necessary for easy access to the home and for the many National Park Beaches, restaurants and shops.

Amazing views and convenience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the treehouse from april 22nd - April 28th 2016. It was amazing in all aspects. The house has BREATHTAKING views and is close to everything due to its central location. The nights were perfect in the bedroom off the main deck. Gentle winds all night kept us comfortable and we have never slept better. The owners were more than accommodating and provided almost everything we needed to have a care free vacation. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a St. John rental. Thanks so much for helping us have the best vacation ever!!!

Great central location, aMAZing views

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at the TreeHouse during winter school vacation week 2016. If your goal is to be within reasonable distance to either town, very close to the fantastic north shore beaches, and away from the bustle of Cruz Bay, the location of the TreeHouse is ideal - Maho Bay beach, Francis Bay beach, and Coral Bay could all be reached in 10 minutes or less, Trunk Bay in under 20, and Cruz Bay in around 25. And the view... oh the view! Probably one of the best views on the island, this house was the 180 degree view, from north over Mary's point, Great Thatch Island and out over Jost Van Dyke, to south/southeast overlooking Coral Bay, the East End and the south eastern BVI in the distance. Truly magnificent!

The house is an older property, is somewhat "spartan" compared to many other rentals around the island, and has a somewhat funky layout - essentially a split level, with 2 of 3 bedrooms only reachable by going outside; the master has no ensuite bathroom, and while there are fans, there is no A/C in the house, making it difficult to both be comfortable at night and still drown out the roosters regularly crowing at 4-5am. But the beds were quite comfortable, the hot tub was nice to have after a day of hiking, the laundry was very helpful, having 3 toilets was handy, and the fully functional kitchen and grill made cooking meals at the house totally doable. Snorkeling and beach gear and plenty of towels were all provided as well, all of which were greatly appreciated! Mary-Eileen, the owner, was courteous, helpful, and a pleasure to do business with. I'd recommend this rental for those with kids and a desire to have a convenient home base from which to explore the entire island.

Well equipped with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

I visited Tree House with my son. The house had absolutely everything that we needed for our vacation, all we had to do was show up. The owners provided great communication before and during our trip to help us get the most out of our vacation. The house is central to everything on St John. Sitting on the deck drinking your coffee in the morning can't be beat. Absolutely beautiful.
