Mampoo Hill-- a Beachfront House 20 Yards from the Ocean with optional Jeep

Delightful beach vacation home with a spa tub
Clean, disinfected and 20 yards from the ocean, Mampoo Hill is a very special island beach house. Relax from the decks with the view and sound of the lapping blue water with gently swaying palm trees in between. Or snorkel in privacy in the "back yard" ocean. And watch dramatic sunsets from the luxurious spa or lounge chairs on the upper or lower deck as the end of daylight glistens off the trees and Caribbean ocean.

Mampoo Hill (designed by the most famous architect on island who also did the iconic Mongoose Junction) was meticulously designed to take advantage of its fabulous, close up ocean views--from EVERY room. This rare, beautiful, open air island home has a huge air conditioned master bedroom with a double dressing area, king size bed, queen size futon couch, library, ceiling fans, TV and internet connection while the guest bedroom has twin beds (that can be made up as a king), a ceiling fan, AC, remote controlled cable TV and a full bathroom. Both have spectacular beach front views. Enjoy a beautifully renovated kitchen, a gas grill, spa, and al fresco dining. Note: Jeep rental is optional and available directly from the owner.

Perfect! Beautiful House--Amazing Location!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mampoo Hill. The outdoor living space was perfect. Everything was exactly as described. The photos do not do it justice. The house was well-stocked, communication was great. The only thing to mention is that there aren't curtains on the bedroom windows, so it gets bright very early. By 6:30ish we were up because of the sunlight. So if you like to sleep in or take naps, then bring a sleep mask. But in saying that, we'd come back in a heartbeat!

St. John Paradise
The property is right on a rocky/shell beach and excellent snorkeling is 200 yards away. The views are world class. The soothing sounds of the Caribbean are ever present. The home is an architectural wonder and blends into the beautiful Mampoo Hill. Depending on your mood, you could spend all your time at the house or drive 10 minutes to enjoy the great restaurants and bars in Cruz Bay. All of the wonderful sights and beaches on St. John are within 20-30 minutes. Great Place!!!

Satisfy my soul
Mampoo Hill is a slice of heaven. Upon arriving and walking into the Carribean style open air home we immediately were mesmerized by the breathtaking ocean views. The air moved through the spaces with the breeze and sun radiated the two decks in the late afternoon. The living room and kitchen spaces are open air but each bedroom is private and comfortably appointed. We loved all the artwork by the owner displayed throughout. We woke early each morning to the sounds of the waves caressing the stoney beach, enjoyed breakfast on the deck and finished each evening under the stars in the hot tub. There could not have been a more peaceful way to start and finish each day. We made sure to make it back for late afternoon sunsets with a glass of champs to finish off a beautiful beaching, hiking, paddle boarding and snorkeling excursion. We even spent a couple days doing nothing at all but relaxing in place, fishing from the rocks and exercising on the beach. It was just perfect. We did need to be proactive and keep the bedroom door closed at all times to avoid any bugs from entering. We kept the ceiling fans circulating for constant air flow and minimize moving mosquitoes, it worked perfect. The added value of the jeep rental from the owners was appreciated. The wash/dryer was a plus. The home was well stocked in the kitchen, with plenty of towels and linens. A bonus for us was an in villa couples massage. The set up was perfect, with the sun setting and the breeze coming through the living room while the therapists worked in each of us!! To say the least, we enjoyed every aspect! We are looking to rebook for next year… already

Enjoy Your Own Private Paradise
This was the PERFECT place for our group of 2 couples. Well-designed for island time with two split bedrooms and an open air kitchen & common space. Amazing views of Little St. James & St. Thomas. Short drive to Cruz Bay. Well-stocked kitchen with great selection of cookware. Owners also provide plenty of equipment for beach activities! Pro Tip #1: Pour a glass of your favorite beverage & enjoy a front row seat to the breathtaking sunset every evening. Pro Tip #2: Keep your windows open to breathe in the ocean air as the breaking waves lull you to sleep. Unexpected highlights: Iguanas & crabs are plentiful. So fun to watch!

Beautiful House--Amazing Location
We have a great week at Mampoo Hill. The house is incredible. We enjoyed being so close to the beach, loved the hot tub, and made very good use of Candace's Jeep (as an add-on the house rental). We couldn't have been happier. In response to other reviews, we were there for a week from Christmas to New Years and didn't have any issues with mosquitos or other bugs. We were expecting them but never needed to break out the bug spray. The caretakers were responsive to questions and easy to communicate with. The house was well-stocked and comfortable. And the setting on the beach is so peaceful and lovely. We'll be back!

A clean and well maintained property at a wonderful location was our base for an enjoyable experience in St John. We loved the beach and enjoyed snorkeling. The local manager met us at the ferry and guided us home and familiarized us with the property. He answered questions and gave us advice for the week. All equipment worked and we specially enjoyed the views and the spa. The local pets visited each day and added to our experience. The home was ecologically friendly and just right sized for our group of 5. Everything was close by and beaches a short drive away.

Great location home on St. John
First of all, this house is located in a beautiful area and designed in a way that was so extraordinary. We waited over 6months to be able to stay in this home as the ratings were 5-star and reading all the wonderful comments. We enjoyed our stay and would like to return. However, I do believe in transparency to others who are looking for a place to stay in St. John, VI. I would like to share some things that may or may not affect others' decisions about staying here. Unfortunately, we had difficulty in contacting Jennifer and Craig Troisi before arriving to the home. Somehow, 2 emails that we sent to her regarding flight information was not received. Jennifer did apologize later after another email and phone text were sent. Upon arriving to the airport, Craig was called several times to notify him upon landing and time of arrival. He was not easily contacted for whatever reason. He, also apologized. I think the following information would be handy to know before-hand regarding the jeep rental. We would rent from Craig and Jennifer again, but know that their jeep is NOT located at the home. It is kept at a jeep rental/parking lot right outside the ferry landing at St. John's called "Slim Man's". We didn't realize this and it made for an extremely frustrating traveling day. Craig did meet us there and helped us home to get situated. He left without giving us information about the location of keys, but fortunately, the bug spraying man who let himself in the next morning, told us where they were located. If you are looking for high-end accommodations and appliances, this is not for you. The main reason behind the home's design is to experience the outdoor beauty and the indoor/outdoor house appeal is super cool! However, the outdoor weather and sea air does not allow for stainless appliances to be kept in mint condition. Therefore, most appliances (including coffee pot) were very outdated and could be replaced. The washer and dryer provided were a nice treat, but again, the washer made horrible noises and both were quite dated. Also, the smaller bedroom ceiling was full of cobwebs. Lastly, the listing says there is a beach/sandy entry to the right of the water. It's all rocks and full of sea urchins. After all of this, the good outweighed the negative. Most of these things listed are such minor things. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this beautiful home. We would love to be back.
