About this home

An exotic and luxurious vacation rental with ocean views, surrounded by the natural beauty of St. John National Park. A short walk from the beaches of Hawksnest Bay, this three bedroom, three bath Japanese style house has three spacious decks, a plunge pool, air conditioning, outdoor shower, and plenty of hammocks.

A vacation house perched on the hillside above the old bay rum distillery at Hawksnest Bay, this unusual hardwood house has three bedrooms, a lovely kitchen, various decks, and a plunge pool for cooling off.

Wake up in a mahogany and koa bed and see the turquoise water without raising your head from the pillow. Reach for a cold Ting™ right out of your own bedroom fridge and walk out on the deck to take in the forest canopy and count the sailboats below. Stroll five minutes to the beach for a morning dip and return to brew your fresh ground coffee and lean back in a hammock to watch the banana keets squabble about for your amusement.

An important note to prospective guests with mobility issues: There is a fairly long staircase from the driveway to the house, which may be too strenuous for people with mobility issues. Please see the photos for an idea of the staircase.

*** Hurricane Update 11/26/2017 ***

Mampoo House was lucky enough to make it through Irma & Maria with only very minor damage and will be ready for guests beginning 12/15/2017.

    Our favorite place on St. John!

    We absolutely love Mampoo House. The location can't be beat as there is a quiet beach across the street, yet restaurants and shops are just a short drive away. The house is beautiful and beds very comfortable. You can hear the waves breaking from inside the house. Our host, Jennifer, was exceptional and was always available for questions. She even picked up our grocery order for the first day. We will always choose this property over all others.

    Mampoo House is Amazing!

    We absolutely loved our stay at Mampoo house! This is special property -- very simple, but elevated by its thoughtful design and spectacular views. The floorplan is well-suited to 3 couples with private bedrooms and baths for each. Our property manager, Jennifer, was amazingly helpful from the beginning to the end of our stay. Without question, this is now our go-to rental when vacationing in St. John!

    Perfect location and beautiful view!

    We loved this house!! Stayed with my husband and 2 teenage sons...perfect setup for us. Had everything we needed...made for a very relaxing and easy week...everyone super comfortable. We each had a favorite spot to hang out and relax. LOVED being able to walk to Oppenheimer beach and loved being so close to Hawksnest, Trunk, Cinnamon, etc. Also loved the quick drive into town. Jennifer was great and made a few dinner reservations for us....all terrific. The house was perfect for us, but just need to point out that I wouldn't recommend this house for families with young kids or anyone with mobility issues. The bedrooms are on different levels and the many stairs require a decent level of fitness and would be a huge concern with little ones.

    Serenity with a breeze.

    The Japanese inspired architecture overlooking Hawksnest Bay was simply serene. Loved the plunge pool and star gazing at night. Would love to go back again. Big “thanks” to Jennifer, the concierge, for all of your help with planning and logistics.

    Wonderful hideaway

    Beautiful property with beautiful views very well appointed and furnished. The house is run by the lovely Jennifer who will look after you. Perfectly situated with excellent views and short walk to nearby beach. Stairs may be an issue for some but quickly become manageable in a day. Looking forward to visiting again one day as this home really makes you feel like you are on a remote tropical island.

    Thank you!

    Perfection—we had a wonderful time in a piece of heaven. Quiet and secluded, but with gorgeous views and steps from a white sand beach. Jennifer was fantastic and knowledgeable and made our stay feel like being at home. Looking forward to coming back.

    Above and beyond

    We had a wonderful time at the beautiful Mampoo house. The location was great with walking distance to one of the most beautiful beaches in St John (Oppenheimer Beach) and minutes ride to Cruz Bay where we enjoyed shopping and dining. Everything you need was there at the house from shampoos to cotton buds, even bandaids, water filter, snorkel and beach towels. The Japanese architecture was just beautiful, I cannot believe the builder made the sliding doors himself. Opening and closing sliding doors took a bit but got used to it by end of day 1. Beware of mosquitos; we went in August during high season so mosquitos found its way in the cracks. Property manager Jen went above and beyond and helped us through everything like jump starting our rental jeep when the battery died... She also was very knowledgable about the house and taught us some St John culture :)
