Location, location, location! Hillcrest Guest House is located in downtown Cruz Bay on a hill overlooking the bay. You can walk to restaurants and shopping but will want a taxi back up the hill. We rented a car in St. Thomas at the airport and took the car barge from RedHook to Cruz Bay. Getting to the Hillcrest is difficult... More

Phyllis is fabulous! My friend Katie and I had a great stay! The place was so convenient with full kitchen, living area, comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Thd fridge was stocked with complimentary food and drink. A very short distance to downtown with great views. I will definitely be returning to this location!!!!

Phyllis is the warmest and most accommodating person we have met. She gifted my Veteran husband the use of her Sunset Room as her gratitude of our Servicemen. As a result we had the trip of a lifetime and in the most magnificent tropical setting a person can only dream about. The Sunset room was so comfortable and overlooked the... More

I wanted to be centrally located. The guest house is a very short, but very steep walk from downtown. It has all the amenities such as a full kitchen, large seating area, comfortable bedroom, good sized bathroom and even a spacious outdoor area that is all screen in. It gave you the option of being able to go downtown for... More

This is a very affordable and easy location for guests visiting St John, I have had clients stay at Hillcreast. If you don't mind walking the hills you don't need a car. Ms. Phyllis Hall will take good care of you!

We stayed at the guest house from May 10 to May 17th, 2014. Having stayed in St. Thomas a couple of times in 2001 and 2002, we always felt St. John was the place to be. It's more quaint yet full of action when you want it. I will start off by saying this place is NOT for everybody, and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our apartment at Hillcrest. We stayed in the Tropical Suite, which is a nice sized one bedroom apartment. This guest house is not fancy, but very, very well located and exactly what we wanted and expected from reading the website. The views are phenomenal. And everyone gets a view, because no matter which unit you have, there... More

Phyllis Hall is a marvelous hostess who will accommodate your preferences when she stocks the fridge with complimentary foods and beverages. In addition she provides beach chairs and an assortment of supplies to take to the beach, as well as DVDs and paperbacks (the TV gets 4 stations). We stayed in the Orchid Suite, which doesn't have a view of... More
