We absolutely love the Tropical Treehouse and were happy to hear it survived the hurricanes! The new owners have kept the cottage spotlessly clean and well maintained. What I loved....good quality bath towels, great shower head, basket of sample toiletries, shampoo, conditioner, and shower soap provided, welcome treats, plenty of pans and kitchen gadgets, AC in loft, nice sheets, beach chairs and umbrella, and consistent WiFi. The steps down to the cottage from the parking area and the ladder to the loft are as pictured so know your limitations! Communication with the owners was easy and responsive from initial booking until return of deposit! This was our second stay and prior to the storms the cottage was secluded behind a canopy of lush tropical greenery. Now, sadly the trees are gone, but the view of Coral Bay, the surrounding waters and the BVI that opened up is truly amazing! Can’t wait to return! Love STJ!
Tropical Tree House was a treasured find! From start to finish owners, Jake & Sarah, were wonderful to work with. Jake responded to every email and text (and there were a lot of them!!), arranged for a very nice greeter, and even had a welcome basket with lovely wine and snacks. Located on the quieter side of St. John in Coral Bay, you have easy access to all the beautiful beaches with crystal blue waters and fabulous snorkeling. Many restaurants are close by; Indigo Grill was our favorite hitting it 3 times for dinner. Skinny Legs is always a must stop!! And Pickles open mic night was fun!!! Love City Market about a mile away is stocked quite well for an island market. If you are looking for a little more lively time, Cruz Bay is a short 20 minute drive.
Tropical Tree House itself is a tropical treat. Decorated in Caribbean colors you will find all you need for your stay and then some. We cooked many meals in the well-equipped kitchen. We ate all our meals on the screened in deck with nice ocean views. When it was time to head to the beach Jake & Sarah had provided a beach umbrella, cooler, 2 beach chairs and several beach towels. The a/c which we only used at night was more than adequate. And there was even a washer/dryer. One word of caution: it is 68 steps down from the parking area. Which means 68 steps back up to your Jeep. We didn't mind at all - we loved it!
We cannot say enough nice things about Tropical Tree House and Jake and Sarah. We highly recommend it and plan to stay here on our next trip to STJ....Love City Strong!
Tropical Tree House Villa is a wonderful place to stay while visiting St John Island. Clean and comfortable with a great view, unbelievable night sounds. They provide lots of amenities, which help in packing, especially beach stuff. I hesitate to say just how wonderful it is, because I don’t want too many people to find my paradise. But really, if you’re looking for a great get away from the rest of the world, this is the place for you.
