About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

20 yards from the ocean, Mampoo Hill is a very special island beach house. Read a book 10 feet from the lapping sea in a double hammock between two palm trees. Or snorkel in privacy in the "back yard" ocean. And watch dramatic sunsets from the luxurious spa or lounge chairs on the upper or lower deck as the end of daylight glistens off the trees and Caribbean ocean. (Note: We only accept DIRECT bookings) MORE...

Mampoo Hill (designed by the most famous architect on island who also did the iconic Mongoose Junction) was meticulously designed to take advantage of its fabulous, close up ocean views--from EVERY room. This rare, beautiful, open air island home has a huge air conditioned master bedroom with a double dressing area, king size bed, queen size futon couch, library, ceiling fans, TV and internet connection while the guest bedroom has twin beds (that can be made up as a king), a ceiling fan, AC, remote controlled cable TV and a full bathroom. Both have spectacular beach front views. Enjoy a beautifully renovated kitchen, a gas grill, spa, and al fresco dining.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: My husband, Bill, and I (Candace) live in Atlanta, Georgia. He's a management labor lawyer with his own firm, Kaspers & Associates and I am a retired college professor and current gold and sterling silver jewelry artist. Bill graduated from Princeton and U. of Michigan Law School and I graduated from Mills College (California) and U. of Michigan Graduate School.

Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay, Saint John, USVI:
This is an authentic beach front property with beauty and modern conveniences, 20 yards from the ocean on St. John, USVI. What's not to like?

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fabulous, private snorkeling in your own back yard; a double hammock within 10 feet of the ocean between two palm trees; 1 acre of property; privacy; all the modern conveniences yet a newly renovated "island" home which takes advantage of its views and tradewinds.
