About Sheila Frederiksen
I built this house in 1996 to escape the harsh, cold Rochester, NY winters. Sure did the trick. I find the island to be soothing and regenerating. Currently I reside in the beautiful low country in Beaufort, SC.

Gorgeous views, everything we neede
Very comfortable and private house with unbelievable views. We loved overlooking Coral Bay and being close to that area's restaurants. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the screened porch. The hot tub was very hot so we turned the heat off. We had coffee at the table and chairs in the shade. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
Bed with a view!
Over all our stay was ok. My husband and I come to Coral Bay every year for our anniversary. This was our first stay at House in the Hills. We felt like the house really wasn't up to standards for renting after the hurricane. Especially for the cost. Many features were not working or up to par. Some were repaired by the third day of our stay which we appreciated. With no phone service we had to borrow a waitress phone at Skinny Legs to reach our contact to let someone know of many things not working. Over all it was located in a private location and did have a beautiful view. It was stocked with ample towels and had a fully stocked kitchen to cook or prepare food. Be warned!! There were three restaurants open the first week of Feb. after hurricane. Island is working very hard to recover with cleaning up and rebuilding. Over all "House in the Hills" needs some tender loving care to spruce up and repair if charging full amount during this recovery time on St. John Island.
There were many problems on St. John when houses began to rent again. The internet was spotty, phone service awful, burnt out hot tubs. I so glad to say all these concerns have been repaired at The House in the Hills. St. John is also rebounding. Restaurants reopening. Beaches more beautiful than ever.
My husband and I enjoyed 7 days on a liveaboard sailboat which was amazing in itself... then we retreated to The House in the Hills for quite an exceptional experience. Coral Bay, St. John is always a relaxing place to visit, but being in a secluded home with view of many of the islands we sailed to was perfect! The home is so breezy and comfortable - we did not need the A/C at all as the entire home is screened in and the sounds of the tree frogs at night is truly enchanting. Dave wes very helpful with recommendation of great snorkeling areas and the food was remarkable at all the re restaurants around Coral Bay. If you prefer to cook the seafood and veggies at Calabash Market was fresh and perfect - nice wine selection as well!, So laid back and inviting - I trust others will enjoy the home as much as we did!
We have stayed at the House in the Hills twice now and we absolutely love it! By far my favorite view from anywhere on St. John! Waking up to that every morning truly took my breath away! House is a quaint & quiet little villa, snuggled in lush vegetation on the hillside overlooking Coral Bay. House offers all the ammenities you require, even coolers and beach chairs. The owner Sheila & house manager Dave are amazing/ nice people as well, which is paramount when booking a private residence in my opinion. Can not wait for our next visit, never want to leave while there... true slice of Heaven:) ENJOY!
Great place to stay for a St John getaway
My wife & I just returned home after a week in St John and staying at House In The Hills. In sum, you can't go wrong with this house. It is located in beautiful Coral Bay, and conveniently located to everything on the island. The house has a great view and all needed amenities. The owner Sheila and her house manager Dave are awesome, and Dave will give you a complete rundown on the house and anything about St John. Highly recommended!
This home was perfect for our "first girl's trip without kids" in 5 years! As they say, "location, location, location"...and The House in The Hills just doesn't get any better. We found ourselves rolling down the hill most nights to Shipwreck after a long day at the beach or adventure seeking.
House in the Hills is in a very private location but only minutes from the quaint village of Coral Bay an some of the islands prettiest beaches. You can also plan a kayaking, hiking, paddle boarding, day sail trip within a few miles.
