About Helen

After 12 years of St. John vacations, we took the plunge in 2002 and purchased 'our' Caribbean dream home. The Lemoines and Peters, known to enjoy a margarita or two after a day at the beach, decided on a most appropriate moniker, 'HAPPY OUR.' We hope you'll choose 'OUR' own private paradise on St. John for your island vacation.

Helen purchased this house in 2002

Why Helen chose Estate Eden

Great Coral Bay location. Amazing dual views. Comfortable and casual living in our Caribbean home.

WOW!!! Happy Our is AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly a "home away from home"!! From the moment you walk in- you will feel as if you're in paradise!! The views from the main house and cottage are truly beautiful!! The owners have equipped the home with MORE than you could ask for; gourmet kitchen, towels, coolers, beach chairs, the most comfortable mattresses on all beds, OH- and SPOTLESS!!!! So close to the most beautiful beaches and restaurants...just be safe driving up/down "the hill"!! You won't want to leave, and I will guarantee you'll want to come back and tell others!! There is a book with Island suggestions, and contact information should anyone need something- plus movies, tv, and the most friendly neighbors!! Wifi is easily accessible, and the outdoor showers Can't be beat!!! Can't wait to go back!! Thank you HappyOur!!!!

Great quiet location with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

What a great quiet location at the 4th switchback up above Skinny Legs. You will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle, which will come in handy for your day trips. Coral Bay is the opposite of Cruz Bay and very laid back. There are many colorful characters among the locals who will share some amazing stories with you after a couple of cocktails.

Fabulous views, cheerful home, attentive hosts and beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

Happy Ours was perfect for us. We had two couples. Plenty of space and privacy for each couple, as well as great space for gathering. Spent all evenings and mornings on the deck, the big table was perfect for our nightly game of dominos, kitchen space was big so we were not tripping all over each other. All the amenities we needed were there. Nice to have beach chairs, towels and a cooler for our daily adventure. The home is very whimsical, tropical, spacious and comfortable. We truly loved the outdoor showers!

Helen was a great host. She was so attentive to our planning. She forwarded information on car rental suggestions, restaurants, beaches, markets, weather, ocean conditions and ferry schedules. Always answered my emails promptly and was very kind. She arranged for Tom to meet us at Skinny Legs grill and follow him up to the house. He was kind and reviewed all we needed to know as well as answered a few call we made later in the week.

Our vacation was wonderful on St John, such a lovely island. Thank you Helen, Ken and Tom

Fabulous beach vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Loved the "vibe" at Happy Our - tropical, happy, spacious, comfortable, relaxing! We really enjoyed listening to music through the stereo's outdoor speakers on the balcony. In the morning we saw humming birds and an iguana in the trees. The outdoor showers are delightful. A cactus was blooming at night right next to the shower. The view itself is worth the trip. The pool area is it's own oasis. The beach chairs were so nice to have. Everything was very well maintained. The only minor complaint would be to have more Tupperware type of containers in the kitchen for leftovers and picnics to the beach. We had a wonderful stay at Happy Our. Hope to be back soon!
