              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: I have lived on St. John for thirty years, having sailed here as a youngster on a classic ocean racer. String of Pearls is the cottage I built on my dream property, beachfront land just one house away from the Westin. I love the water and could spend all my time sitting on the beach or sailing, dinghying, windsurfing or kayaking! But I'm a full time real estate broker and am about to build an energy-neutral, 'green' house that will be another great rental! Look forward to Moonlight Serenade.

              Why the Owner Chose Great Cruz Bay:
              Great Cruz Bay is an elegant neighborhood, mostly of vacation rentals. To own a home on the beach almost adjacent to the Westin Resort with all its amenities is a dream come true. I designed the house to be the perfect romantic hideaway for a couple. When I'm at String of Pearls, I can just walk down the beach to great restaurants, a health club, watersports and shopping. Being just a five minute drive from Cruz Bay, the island's main port of entry is incredibly convenient, too. Ten minutes and I'm at a world class National Park beach.
