“Great home base for a week of adventure on St. John.”

This place is really three master suites, all with king beds and bathrooms. We stayed here with three teenagers - it was perfect. Loved the plunge pool. Beautiful house. Great view. Awesome fully stocked kitchen. Well equipped. Clean. High end everything.

There were lots of stairs and a steep driveway -- we really liked the forest feel. Very luxurious, yet still very natural feeling. Layout was great with teenagers.

Big plus: Short (5 minute) walk to Oppenheimer/Gibney beach. This was one of our favorite snorkeling spots on the whole island. There is very little parking for this beach, so being able to walk here was a huge plus.

Dear Andy,
That is a lovely review but, alas, I believe it was meant for another house. Mampoo Hill is on Devers Bay and not a short walk to Gibney beach and we are a two bedroom island home, not three. Regardless, everyone connected with Mampoo Hill is delighted that you and your family had a wonderful time on St. John!

“Excellent house and location!”

We recently returned from our first trip to St. John & we were definitely impressed! Mampoo was the perfect house. We spent pretty much every minute at the house outside enjoying the views. The house isn't too far from town and the grocery store. The kitchen was stocked with every utensil & pot/pan that we needed. Definitely DO NOT leave ANY type of food on the counters when you're not in the kitchen! There was one bird in particular that wasn't shy and would come and have a snack while we were sitting at the table eating. The bedrooms/bathrooms were great & the A/C worked quite well. It was unseasonably hot (per the locals) when we were there so this was a blessing. The hot tub was well maintained and
clean & it was the perfect after a long day of exploring. We rented their jeep and it was perfect. I can't imagine driving around the island in anything other than a jeep. We would definitely re-rent Mampoo Hill again!!

Dear Susan,
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review of the house and the Jeep (yes, the brown island "Thrushie" bird will delight in your food if you leave it around). Thank you for coming and we hope you'll come back again and enjoy the sunsets from the deck or Jacuzzi.

“I Just Couldn't Leave!”

We are regular visitors to St. John and have stayed in condos in the past. We were looking to step up from the condo experience and just happened on Mampoo Hill while reviewing properties available for our travel dates. Wow! What a find Mampoo Hill is! I'm almost afraid to be so honest for fear that it will not be available for my next trip.

Everything about our stay was magical. The cottage is a wonderful arts and crafts design and the property provides absolute privacy. In the entire week we had only 2 small groups visit our nearly private bay. The only real "company" that stopped by were the iguanas. We actually drove to a couple of our favorite beaches only to quickly return to our private paradise.

The owners are gracious and generous and the island staff was helpful and genuinely interested in our visit. I cannot say enough praise for this property and our experience.

“LOVE MAMPOO”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Just returned from my 2nd time renting Mampoo.
GREAT location! perfect...close to town
love the sound of the waves and palms - a perfect sound to fall asleep and wake up to.

Perfect for 2 couples and perhaps a child
We were one adult and one teen this time
and 4 adults and 1 teen the last time
2 separate bedroom suites
simple yet oh so functional
It really is all about the location more than the accomodations.
and having the Jeep is a great option too
Thanks Mampoo - we WILL be back again!

“Awesome Place on St. John”

We have travel to St. John several times but never spent a week there. We took our Mother and Father in-law for a trip there and stayed here. This was fantastic! The place is right on the beach as noted and the swimming and snorkeling was just fine. not the best but still nice. We truly enjoyed the room and the open kitchen for a true Caribbean experience. Well worth the time spent. We found the amenities to be perfect.

Sorry for the very late review. But once i found this place i needed to submit a review.
