“Perfect Beach House for Family and Friends of All Ages -- on the most beautiful, relaxing island ever”

Our family can't say enough about Spyglass Hill and St. John. First the house. It's spacious, clean, relaxing, comfortable, and perfectly arranged for a variety of fabulous times with your family and friends. There's a lovely full kitchen with everything you need that overlooks a dining and seating area. If you want to cook you are still right in the social mix. (But if you want to go out to eat you can do that, too). The bedrooms are charming and clean, as are the two bathrooms. Both bathrooms are nicely stocked with towels. There is a clothes washer at the house--key if you have children. There is a semi-separate downstairs suite that has its own kitchenette--sink, mini-fridge, place to make coffee. There are several bookshelves in the house stocked with great beach reads as well as guides to local wildlife. Spyglass Hill is very much a family home away from home. If you need to be inside for some reason, inside at Spyglass Hill is just lovely and it works for a group. But who goes to St. John to be inside? Let's talk about the decks and Star Tower. On the main-level deck there's a great spot to sit in lounge chairs and have a tropical smoothie. Or you can read a book in the hammock. At night you can climb up to the "Star Tower" deck, which is a deck just off of one of the bedrooms that is in a loft-like tower part of the house (very cool!). The view is beautiful as is the breeze.

The house is a short drive to several truly amazing post-card worthy beaches that you'll remember forever and long to return to. The beaches are almost never crowded. Many times we were the only people there--on perfect beach-going days like you dream about. It was a peaceful paradise. The snorkeling is incredible. During our week we saw sea turtles, sting rays, an octopus, multitudes of rainbow fish, and tons of cool coral.

Highly recommend both the house and St. John.

“The perfect vacation in a great house”

We had a wonderful trip on St. John with family and good friends. The house is very comfortable and has great places for hanging out both indoors and outdoors. It's also in a great location for exploring the island and all of the best beaches. We would highly recommend this house to anyone, in fact we are planning on going back!
