Relax and enjoy your vacation in an idyllic island beach house less than twenty yards from the turquoise edge of the Caribbean--rent the private and unique home on Devers Bay known  as "Mampoo Hill".  This is the perfect "get away" for those who enjoy an unusually beautiful setting that offers leisure and privacy in close touch with the out-of-doors.

THE HOUSE
Mampoo Hill, located on the southwest part of St. John, is a contemporary beach house of redwood and island stone, designed by one of the island's most prominent architects.  This open air, two bedroom, two bath house was designed to take advantage of its view and proximity to the Caribbean.  The huge, Air Conditioned master bedroom contains wireless internet, cable tv, a queen futon couch, a sumptuous king-size bed, sitting area, ceiling fans, a two-sink bathroom and dressing room.  The Air Conditioned guest room, with its twin beds made up as a king-size bed, has cable tv, a ceiling fan, and a full bath with a pedestal sink.
For those who want to see a beautiful sunset or relax in fresh water, a four person spa on the upper deck overlooks the bay, two small islands, and a portion of St. Thomas. A multitude of chairs, couches and chaise lounges abound on the upper and lower decks and living room to take advantage of the ocean, the coconut palms and the many birds that visit this well-nested beach house.  The kitchen and dining areas also have gorgeous views of the Caribbean.
 

UNUSUAL FEATURES

RIGHT ON THE WATER
Few homes on this island are right on the water like Mampoo Hill is.  And because St. John is a small island (three quarters of which is natural park land), most homes are on quarter or half acre lots-- Mampoo Hill, however, sits on a full acre of gorgeous property, lovingly attended by a private gardener.



FANTASTIC SNORKELING IN THE BACK YARD
Devers Bay grows lovely coral which, in turn, attracts beautiful fish to be viewed when snorkeling.  In addition, coral in the U.S. Virgin Islands is protected so boats cannot come into Devers Bay--making it a very private bay with great coral.

AN ARTFUL HOUSE
Mampoo Hill was conceived and developed by an artist and her husband (who was the director of Winterthur Museum).  With artistic sensitivity and sensibility, they took great care to take advantage of the views, trade winds, and natural beauty surrounding the house.  Today, the property retains most of its original silver Mampoo trees (after which the house was named), sea grapes, turpentine trees, and yellow and pink tree orchids.  Hibiscus, bougainvillea, lilies and coconut palms were added later.  The current owners of Mampoo Hill (another artist and an attorney) have added two arbors, various gardens and painstakingly maintained the ambience, environment and philosophy of Mampoo Hill--casual relaxation through extraordinary and serene beauty.
