“Didn't stay but went out with Hank on his boat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Made our trip, what a great guy! We took the 3 kids (10,8, and 5) out on the boat and Hank couldn't of been a better Captain. He took up to all the great snorkeling spots, would stop and give us some history about various parts of the island, and was wonderful with the kids. This really was the highlight of our trip!

First time visiting St John. Had an excellent time. Karen and Hank were great. Hank pretty much laid out our trip for us. He recommended various beaches and restaurants, which were all great calls. Looking forward to going out on his boat next time. Karen's breakfasts were terrific.

Our 5 nights at Treetops was a wonderful experience. We immediately felt right at home in this cozy house tucked right into the mountainside. Karen and Hank were great hosts; down-to-earth, full of great advice and willing to help out any way they could. We stayed in the First Mate's Quarters, which was clean, adorable and private. We loved sleeping with the breeze and the sound of the tree frogs; like sleeping outside! Breakfast was fresh fruit, juice, coffee and home-baked bread or muffins. The trip on Hank's boat to special snorkeling spots in the Park was a highlight of our trip. We felt this was very affordable and would love to return.

Room Tip: First Mate's Quarters doesn't have AC, but with the breeze and fans it was not needed. The p...

It was our first visit to St. John, but Karen and Hank made it seem like we were visiting old friends. Chatting with them over breakfast was a delight, and their advice guided us to great destinations for the rest of the day. We stayed in the First Mate's Headquarters, which has a balcony that stretches out into the canopy of the forest. Sitting there at night with a glass of wine looking at the stars and listening to the tree frogs was a perfect way to finish off the day. Treetops is a great place run by a delightful couple – it fully deserves all the positive feedback from the other reviews.

Thanks to Hanks and Karen we had a wonderful vacation at St. John. We felt right at home and their advice hit the mark for what we enjoy when on vacation. We found that we loved to snorkel the many beaches and hike the many trails. We will be back.

Hank and Karen were the perfect hosts of our 4 night stay on St. John in their Treetops Bed and Breakfast. What a perfect way to enjoy the beautiful island of St. John. Their home is a comfy bungalow in the woods where you can enjoy all the sights and sounds of nature. Our accomodations were very comfortable and all their special touches were appreciated such as snorkel equipment, beach chairs, beach towels, and toiletries to name a few. We especially enjoyed our leisurely mornings where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast with Hank, Karen, and their other visitors. We certainly were entertained by Hank's stories- lots of laughs! Karen generously drove me to a local beach while my husband went out fishing with Hank and enjoyed a great day out on the water. Hank and Karen truly made our experience so very special. We strongly recommend a stay at Treetops and we certainly plan on coming back!

room great, food great, hosts super, st john great, boat ride great!! i would recommend treetops for people who identify more with nature and seclusion rather than resort atmospheres. for those who want to be a traveler not a tourist. for those who prefer not to be around kids on vacation, we agree with all previous posts- quiet, calm, relaxing, interesting, artistically decorated - scary driveway at first!
