About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Next, all but two of the 32 units there are lived in year round by it's inhabitants. All the neighbors know each other and are very friendly. Most will realize you are staying in our place, so don’t be shy asking for directions or a beer. This is not a resort, but absolutely feels like a sanctuary or retreat. There are wild chickens and roosters, as well as the occasional iguana running around. Don’t worry they all get along fine with each other and with the horses on the edge of the property. Well kept but not manicured, nothing feels forced. This is island living. It’s all natural.
The beach, 50 feet from our living room, is usually deserted, as everyone living there in Dorothea is at work. If there happens to be a horse on the beach or in the water don’t worry, sometimes they break out to go for a swim! If you want to hike to another beautiful quiet, deserted beach where there are no buildings or anything but white sand, you can hike to Neltjeberg (pr. nelteeberg). It’s a little less than a half a mile walk on a spectacular forest trail that includes an ocean cliff section directly adjacent to the property. It’s a local’s favorite, deserted most weekdays. If you want something more traditional, world famous Megan’s Bay is only two bays over, about a 7 minute drive from Dorothea. There are 53 other public beaches. Typical this is not.
It’s a small island so everything is close, including the ferries to St John, Tortolla, Virgin Gorda and many others. Day trips are easy and inexpensive. We provide beach towels and coolers for your use.
Owning this exact condo was Dori’s dream before ever meeting me in Connecticut, so after we got together I bought it for us. I now understand why it was her dream and I think you will too.
One more thing, if Violeta, a little orange cat comes by for breakfast, there is food in the refrigerator for her, and please keep the foot bath water fresh because she will drink out of it when you are not looking!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: Dori and I live in Connecticut where we each have businesses. Dori is a psychotherapist in private practice in West Hartford and I have a mortgage company in Farmington. In fact, I recently received my lending license from the Virgin Islands so I can work as well as vacation in Saint Thomas now. We were recently married right on the beach in front of the condo!
Why the Owner Chose Estate Dorothea, Saint Thomas, USVI:
Dori fell in love with this place 20 years ago after a friend of hers moved here permanently. When we got together she took me here to introduce me to the island and her friends. The rest is history.
