Mampoo Hill 07/21/01
Reviewers Rating: Great
Mampoo Hill is a little known gem on STJ that I stumbled upon while surfing. It is a 2 BR beachfront home located on private, quiet Dever's Bay, a short 10 minute drive from Cruz Bay.

The house is "open air" style, with only the bedrooms and baths enclosed/screened. The rest of the house is open to the breeze (and bugs). Spacious decks with plenty of furniture. Carefully planned landscaping including several magnificent coconut palms providing shade. Resident iguanas and bananaquits often make appearances on the deck railings.

This is a simple home, no a/c, no fancy stereo system. Very large king master suite, smaller second BR (king) with 1/2 bath, outdoor garden shower accessed by master BR or gallery outside kitchen. Kitchen is quite adequate, including washer/dryer and many appliances. No charcoal for the grill when we arrived first night, couldn't grill our steaks bought at Starfish on our way from town.

House is 60 feet from water's edge. Excellent snorkeling in the bay. House next door is quite close, but hidden. Guests could sometimes be heard on deck.

Although not as fancy as many STJ villas, high season rate of $300/night makes it a bargain...just bring the bug spray. Rentals are through the owners.
