About Bob Klenke
We built the home in 2005. It is tucked into a hillside with lovely and dramatic views. We hear the phrase, "tree house" from first time visitors often.
Bob Klenke purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Bob Klenke chose Upper Carolina
The location seems ideal to us. It is in a quiet mid island community of homes. The house itself enjoys almost constant breezes, cooled by the 900' elevation, but protected by its setting in the terrain and lush tropical vegetation.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our quests love the convenient location. We are but five minutes from the beautiful line of North Shore beaches, as well as the magnificent snorkeling of Waterlemon Cay. Coral Bay with restaurants, shops, hiking trails and other attractions is also close at hand. And Cruz Bay, the larger of two island communities is only a 15 minute drive.

Long Overdue review from January 2015
I should have written this review right after we stayed at Paradise on the Rocks. Bob and Anne are the best! You will not go wrong renting their little apartment. It is beyond perfect for 2 people. It is comfortable and clean and has everything you could need to make your stay on St. John perfect. The location is far away from the crowds of Cruz Bay but close enough that when you want to go to the store or a restaurant, you are close enough to make the trip.
Bob and Anne are the perfect hosts too. This was our first trip to St. John and they were so helpful and kind. We felt a close kinship to them. We are returning to St. John In January of 2017 and tried to book their place but it was already taken. However, whenever we return just my wife and I, we will be sure to book way ahead for their place.
Property title does not lie- it is a true gem!!!!!
WOW- the house, the surroundings and the hosts!!!!!! Having rented through HomeAway many times, this is the best we ever experienced!!! Spotless, practical and plenty of room. Anne and Bob are wonderful people - so very kind, interested and caring. I want to adopt them!!!
We are defenatly coming back !!!
My husband and I stayed in Bob and Anne's villa for two weeks and were very impressed! Bob and Anne were wonderful hosts and we could not have asked for better accomadations. The Northshore is a mere 5 minutes away and Skinny Legs is a short drive away in Coral Bay. We already knew the island very well so the privacy was perfect! I would highly recommend booking Paradise on the Rocks! Thank you Bob and Anne and we will be back:)
A lovely vacation rental with great hosts!
We had a great time staying at Bob and Anne's for our first trip to St. John. Everything was perfect; almost everything you will need is provided and they are great hosts. Our routine for that week was: having breakfast on the patio, snorkeling / hiking during the daytime and hanging out in Coral Bay in the evenings (it's a little less touristy than Cruz Bay)! They were very kind to give us a little tour of the neighboring beaches and a lot of useful advice since they know the island well.
Thank you so much Bob and Anne for your hospitality! We hope to see you again sometime! :-)
It IS paradise
The perfect location for a couple or single traveller. Perched up in the trees on Ajax Peak, this lovely and very comfortable lower level apartment has lush surroundings and looks out over Coral Bay. Since a car is a must you will appreciate the easy access and secure level parking. Beautiful Francis,Maho and Leinster Bays are but a 5 minute drive.
We love the privacy and secluded setting.Our wonderful hosts, Anne and Bob supply all the necesseties and more. All you need is some food and a bathing suit! We have been coming to the island for 9 years and have stayed here the last 6 years. Just love it. It IS paradise!
My husband and I just returned from the best vacation ever. We stayed with Bob and Anne for one week and everything was great. The apartment is as it looks on line. It is very clean and efficient and contained everything we needed, even beach chairs and a cooler. The central location is great and is only 5 minutes from Maho Bay. Bob and Anne are terrific hosts and were there to give us advice and ideas but they do not intrude on your privacy. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a really nice place to stay at a very reasonable rate. Joan and Rob
Skinny Legs Bar and Grill (Cheeseburger in Paradise). A unique and disappearing vestige of the Caribbean culture and society. Must see.
