Owner info

Year Purchased: 1973

About the owner: I grew up and got married in NYC and moved to St Croix in 1971. I love St. Croix. My three children grew up in St. Croix, one was born on there. It's a wonderful place for children to grow up on. I lived and worked there for 37 years. I am now living in Florida but do hope to return to St. Croix. There is no better place to live or to vacation in.

Why the Owner Chose Estate Whim, Saint Croix, USVI:
The view from this property is fantastic. Every room offers a wonderful sea view. The trade winds breezes that go throughout the house are marvelous and keeps the house comfortable especially at night. There are many mature fruit trees such as mango, plumb(Caribbean), genip, sour sop, carambola, sugar apples, guavas, and limes that I planted because I love these fruits.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is located on the West End of St. Croix which offer the most beautiful white sand beaches on St. Croix. My very favorite is Dorch Beach. The snorkeling is great at this beach and it is only 5 minutes away from the house.
