About the owner: After sailing yachts for years we chose to settle on St. John to raise a family. We were looking for a home that would keep us close to the sea and the joys of the underwater world.
Pebble Cove seemed to fit the bill perfectly. It is as close to living on a boat as we could find while living on land. We have enjoyed Pebble Cove as our special place for many years. We currently reside on Gift Hill, a short walk from the high school to give our daughters easy access to school. This allows us to share Pebble Cove with our many repeat guests who return year after year.
Why the Owner Chose East End: We found Pebble Cove for sale as we drove in the beautiful community of East End and it looked like a small property from the road. We were blown away when we walked through the front door into foyer of native stone and a panorama of ocean views and mountains through the archway. We later got married under that same archway. In our wildest dreams we had never imagined owning such a piece of paradise but we knew immediately that we must work out a way. And we did!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: In our way of thinking a pebble beach is preferable to a sand beach because, as snorkelers and divers, we look for the teeming colorful tropical sea life that is found on and near coral reefs. Sand beaches in contrast have less visible life as the sand continually moves and keeps the coral from growing. At Pebble Cove we found the endless aquarium that we love and in a protective bay that allows comfortable swimming all year round, unlike the North Shore where winter swells stir up the water and surf. We also love the proximity to nature and the sea that this East End home offers, where we can fall asleep to the sound of the water lapping on the shore of our own beach. Our many repeat guests share these same joys and fill our guest books with stories of beautiful days enjoying the water and house.
