Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: Lois and I live in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Lois works with dyslexic children, while I am an attorney, businessman and writer. We spend most of the winter at our St. John house, which we built new in 1981.

Why the Owner Chose Estate Emmaus (Coral Bay, St. John, USVI):
We first came to St. John in 1968, a year before we were married. We kept coming and built our house in 1980-1981 for my 40th birthday. We come to St. John about four months of the year and spend the rest of our time traveling or living in our home in Eastern Kentucky.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The house is called Halcyon Days, after a poem by Walt Whitman. "As the days take on a mellower light, and the apple at last hangs really finish'd and indolent-ripe on the tree, Then for the teeming, quietest, happiest days of all! The brooding and blissful halcyon days!" As recent renters wrote in our guest book, "We truly rekindled our hearts and cleansed our souls." "Your house was magical, reminding us of what is important in life." We appreciate the calm and tranquility of the area.
