History of the house:
The house was built by Glen’s parents, Hope and Henry Jacobs. Hope and Henry, both native New Yorkers, started coming to St. Maarten in 1965, managing the legendary inn, Mary’s Fancy for several years before building this house in 1975. Hope was an avid gardener, and while she lived here, the grounds were awash in color. After Hope and Henry passed away, their son Glen and his wife Robin retired and decided to renovate the house in 2017 but kept some key features of the house that makes it so special and unique. Glen and Robin decided to name the house the "Jewel Box", which is the name of their favorite painting, featured in the living room.
