There are four properties in the Stanley Selengut’s MahoBay empire on St. John. Maho Bay Camps is the granddaddy of them all, but Selengut expanded up the hillside to Harmony Studios. Then he headed out to the Salt Pond area to build Concordia Studios and Concordia Eco-tents. All are a bit different, but the same in their emphasis on conservation. At Maho Bay Camps, you’ll sleep on a bed in a tent with cool showers and toilets down the path. At the Eco-tents and the Harmony and Concordia studios, each unit has its own shower and toilet. Maho Bay Camps and Harmony Studios sit uphill from a small, but lovely beach. At the Concordia properties, you’ll have a short drive and then a ten-minute hike down to the stunning Salt Pond Beach. All have cooking facilities, but at Maho Bay Camps, you’ll make do with an ice chest instead of a refrigerator.
