                      Calicaribe is very close to Cruz Bay and the North Shore beaches. This ideal location makes it convenient to go to the grocery store, dine at the great local restaurants, shop, and enjoy all the best beaches. At this villa, all of your destinations are just minutes away.

                      Because the home is at the top of Contant mountain, you have fabulous views and complete privacy, on an acre lot.

                      Many villas are a long drive to town, or are on the east side of the island, without the beautiful sunsets each evening.

                      We believe Calicaribe enjoys the perfect location for great water views, convenience , and privacy !!


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: The owners of the home are Charles and Traci Ross of St. Petersburg, Florida. Mr. Ross is an attorney who specializes in mediation. Mr. and Mrs. Ross also produce one of Florida's largest musical events - The Tampa Bay Blues Festival. They have traveled extensively throughout the Bahamas and Caribbean islands and believe that St. John is the ultimate Caribbean gem!

                      Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay:
                      Charles and Traci first visited St John in 1997 and were married in the Lutheran Church in Cruz Bay in 1999. For years, they explored the beaches, parks and communities of St John. In 2005, Charles and Traci purchased Calicaribe as their personal vacation home because of the villa's location just minutes from Cruz Bay and the North Shore beaches. After years of searching, they believe they finally found the perfect island vacation home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The modern villa enjoys sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea, St. Thomas and evening sunsets.
