About John Hourihan

A dream come true! We are been coming to St. Croix for over 35 years, have owned numerous properties on-island and FINALLY have purchased 'heaven on earth'. Royal Palms is an architectural delight with complete luxury amenities and the most spectacular views on St.Croix, adjacent to the historic Buccaneer Hotel with access to all its amenities.

John Hourihan purchased this villa in 2013

Why John Hourihan chose East End

I arrived in St. Croix in 1977 and vowed to return. The design, location, construction and amenities/furnishings at AAA+ .

It was a perfect week at a perfect house and definitely love at first sight. We felt at home within seconds of walking in. We were in the pool minutes later. It only got better. I even loved my insomnia, because when I walked around in the middle of the night, I walked right past the pool and had the most extraordinary view. The house came with EVERYTHING. The space, the openness, and oh that view! How lovely that our biggest decision was whether to go to the beach or stay at the pool. It is Nirvana. And a vacation thru and thru. We have already booked our return visit!
