My wife and I have been visiting St. John for many years. We've stayed in Villas, the best hotel/resort several times, and other Inns. We've pretty much seen it all. This year we decided to go to the island for an extended stay, two weeks, and based upon the quality of reviews here and on other travel sites, we chose Treetops. We've never made a better travel decision. The little inn is clean and peaceful, everything you need is there, the bed is very comfortable, the breakfast is perfect to start the day, and equally important, Karen and Hank Slodden are wonderful hosts and just plain good people. They know the island inside and out and are well connected with other Islanders. This gives them tremendous insight into places to go, where to eat, where to find this or that, and Hank being a deeply experienced sea Captain, he knows the bays, beaches and offshore snorkeling sites to visit and will take you there in his boat if you like. You'll find that the breakfasts and the wonderful conversation with the Sloddens and other guests turn into events in themselves, as you talk about the island, it's history, people, your experiences, and your lives. Laughter and good cheer start each adventure. Then, you'll go out and find the perfect beach for the day. It's habit forming, believe me. And all of this, nestled in the mountains on what is arguably one of the most serene and beautiful islands in the world. You won't want to leave Treetops. But when you do, like us, you'll thank Karen and Hank profusely for making the time special while you were there.

Room Tip: First Mates Quarters is screened on 3 sides and has a great private deck. Loved it.

Karen and Hank make you feel at home! Go to sleep with the tree frogs serenading, wake up to humming birds visiting the gardens. Karen makes a great breakfast and Hank makes good conversation. They no the island well and give tips where to go. Out on Fish Bay in the hills. Quiet and peaceful. Energized with a great night sleep and then breakfast in the morning. Can't wait to go back!!

Thanks for your kind words! We loved having you as guests too. It felt like having family here (in a good way)! I'm delighted you got out on the water a couple of days as well.
We hope to see you again - either here or up north!

We have stayed at Karen and Hanks for several years. They feel like family. Anything we wanted they were exceedingly helpful. We loved to sit out on the deck and be lulled to sleep by the treefrogs. It is a wonderful, peaceful hideaway tucked into the hillside, just a short drive to Cruz Bay.

Room Tip: They are all good

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay here - we loved having you as guests as well. Being close to nature is one of the things that people love about our island, and what keeps us here too! Glad you enjoyed the tree frogs as much as we do.

We stayed for 2 nights with Karen and Hank in the "BunkHouse". Karen was an excellent communicator with regards to booking. The BunkHouse was very sweet, with an obvious attention to detail, as well as clean and well stocked which made it all the more charming. Karens breakfasts were wonderful, and she gave us great advice on local trails for hiking.
The location is great - a little way out of Cruz Bay, but so tranquil with incredible bird noises and nothing else.
We will definitely be back to stay - Thank you Karen and Hank!

We were delighted to stay 8 nights at Karen & Hank's place, and we would do it again. Our hosts were always available for the good advice and we had some lovely conversations. Karen's breakfasts were delicious & served beautifully, too bad we always had to rush to the beach to catch up with the early morning's sun rays. The house is in a peaceful location and surrounded by beautiful landscapes & nature, away from Cruz Bay's chaos & heat. Need a 4 wheel drive for the steep roads with a good number of road bumps.
