About the owner: Cathie and John are both British and were fortunate to travel the world in their working years. They took a five year hiatus on their beloved Catamaran 'Ladycat' looking for some where to spend their glory years but it was not to be. It was only after resuming business endeavors & seeking a quick break that they finally found their ideal spot on St Croix.
John is Facilities Manager at the University of the Virgin Islands. Cathie is a Tour Guide and Volunteer at the St George Botanical Gardens in the Orchid Nursery and is hoping this will help the orchids grow around the property.
Why the Owner Chose North Shore: For many years before finding our home, we vacationed on St Croix, as we became more and more attracted to the place we began renting properties in different part of the island, experiencing the many options available on St Croix until we discovered the North Shore. The camaraderie and laid back life style on this side of the island, with its incredibly good restaurants & wonderful close by beaches and diving facilities, was definitely inviting. Additionally John fell in love with the unique Mediterranean style of our property, high on the hill with Ocean Views, the sound of the lapping waves below, and incredibly cooling breezes blowing through most of the year. Why wouldn't we be happy in this peaceful beautiful location.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: We love the Spanish/Mexican Style architecture of the property, the many arches, the incredible ocean views from many parts of the property and one where we can watch the dive boats on the buoy that is clearly seen from the apartment. We love the amazingly good food at three of the extremely close by restaurants, and the incredible sunsets which can be seen from our home and from Off the Wall, regularly voted the best beach bar in the Virgin Islands. On booking we will email you a map with the direct route from the airport, another showing a more scenic route passing the best supermarket on the island, and another showing all the local bars, restaurants, dive shop, and a list of web sites full of local information on this wonderful island we now call home.
