Maho Bay plans for going out of business

It could be the biggest yard sale St. John, or the entire Virgin Islands, has ever seen.

Stanley Selengut is hoping that all the furniture, awnings, tents, beach equipment of his Maho Bay Camps and so on will go to good homes. Perhaps locals who need some help or, on a grander scale, or “in Haiti, a refugee camp or other places of need,” said Maho Bay’s founder.

Since his lease runs out in the middle of May,. Selengut is trying to figure out what to do with all the furnishings and “stuff” that Maho Bay has accumulated over its 37 years.  For instance, according to a story in the St. John Source, there are 152 two-burner propane stoves, 114 tents, 500 mattresses, 100 tables, coooers and who-knows-how-many knives, forks and spoons to be disposed of.

Selengut is interested in hearing fron non-profit groups who might have a need for the Camp’s items. People can contact him at [email protected].

  1. I hope that they can go to Haiti, they need ll of this so desperately…these could easily be the difference in life or death there.

  2. Just stayed at Maho and this is the saddest thing anyone could do to this beautiful spot. I really don’t know what the plan is for Maho. But I really hope the new owner figures out that this is one of the best places on the planet. Owning is one thing, but being business smart is another. Lets see if they can figure that out.
    Thanks for a GREAT Time!!!!
