                              St. John, the smallest and most idyllic of the three United States Virgin Islands, is best known for its dozens of post card perfect white sand beaches, turquoise bays abounding in colorful corals and rainbows of tropical fish and endless vistas of green velvet hills. Only nine miles long and three miles wide, two thirds of the island is the Virgin Islands National Park, so its spectacular beaches and untouched forests will remain that way for generations to come and be accessible to all. There are tours of the National Park by Jeep or safari bus and hikes on spectacular trails led by Park Rangers who enrich the experience with talks on the island's history and geology as well as its flora and fauna. Frequent visitors to St. John are beach lovers who are always ready to go back to the beach.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: Bob and Barb and their two grown sons Bobby and Richie are avid swimmers, snorkelers and scuba divers. Having lived near the ocean most of their lives they decided to build their retirement home on a beach. After over 20 beach vacations throughout the Caribbean, Hawaii and both coasts of Mexico, they decided on St John due to its exceptional beaches, 'Park-like' environment (St John is mostly National Park), lack of crowds, privacy, and the security of being a United States Territory, etc they made the easy decision to build on St John. Bob is a engineer for one of the nations largest contractors and in his spare time has built the familiy's homes each they relocated around the country. So building their retirement home was a natural progression. We used local labor to clear the land and build the foundation and then with Bob as the crew chief, Barb as the crew cook, their two sons and five of their college buddies erected the post and beam home in a little over three weeks. Local labor came back at that point to finish the home out. After receiving her masters degree in Physical Education, Barb taught physical education for over 30 years in several states including Rhode Island and California. She also was a USS swim coach and US Masters swim coach. Barb was an accomplished swimmer at UNC Chapel Hill and continued swimming as a masters swimmer winning several national championships. Bob recieved his engineering degree from Duke where he also swam and he and Barb have swum masters together for over 35 years now. They recently teamed up for a 'mixed' relay with another couple and set a national record for the 55 to 59 age group. Their oldest son, Bobby is a radiologist in Phoenix and engaged to be married to a radiologist. Their youngest son, Richie, is an accomplished freelance photographer, living with his wife of 5 years in Portland, Oregon.

                              Why the Owner Chose East End:
                              Bob had visited the Virgin Islands while on a training trip with the Duke swim team back in 1975 and swore to all his college buddies that he was going to build a home and retire in the Virgin Islands. Of course they didn't beleive him. After over 20 beach vacations throughout the Caribbean, Hawaii and both coasts of Mexico, Barb and Bob decided on St John due to its exceptional beaches, 'Park-like' environment (St John is mostly National Park), lack of crowds, privacy, and the security of being a United States Territory, etc they made the easy decision to build on St John. Of course Bob makes it a habit of inviting his best swimming buddy from Duke to visit every year at Seahaven to rub it in that he decided at age 19 where he was going to retire!!!

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Seahaven is situated directly on one of the best swimming and snorkeling beaches in the Islands with fantastic views of the crescent shaped tropical beach of Privateer Bay off the deck. In addition, some of the best beaches in world just minutes away by car. Most of the island is a National Park founded by the Vanderbilts in the late 50's making St John a unique tropical paradise.
