About the owner: Paul and Alyce met through a personal ad in Philadelphia Magazine.We first visited St. John in 1989 at the suggestion of good friends who knew we would love the island and it's romance.We retired to St John in 1998 after our plans to build SeaSwan were approved. Paul a retired industrial designer acted as the general contractor on SeaSwan and when the villa was completed in 2013 began taking guests fly fishing for bone fish. As president of the VI Olympic Shooting team and ham radio enthusiast Paul is active in the St. John community. His call sign is NP2JF. Paul loves the people and history of St. John and is always happy to share it with guests. Knowledgeable about the beaches and hiking trails Paul gives guests all the local information as well as best fishing spots. Alyce is an active project person an avid gardener as her orchids and gardens are well known. Alyce loves to cook, entertain and bakes wonderful treats for Sea Swan guests. Always an RN Alyce worked in Nursing Administration and then as an executive in health insurance for twenty years before retiring to St. John. Failing retirement Alyce returned to clinical nursing as an ER nurse on St. John in 2001." How fortunate I am to do work I love." We feel very lucky to live on such a beautiful spot on St. John and enjoy sharing our home with guests from all over the world.
Why the Owner Chose Estate Glucksberg and Grunwald, Saint John, USVI:
Alyce & Paul had the opportunity to purchase the land for Sea Swan in 1998. We knew the view would be good but didn't realize it would be spectacular. Even long time StJohnians are amazed at the wonderful view. We wanted this property because of it's privacy. Our exact location can be viewed using the satellite view on Google Maps.http://goo.gl/Qxxbr3 We previously owned Plumeria and managed it as a short term rental for sixteen successful years. SeaSwan is at the very end of the lane.There are 24 acres of undeveloped land in front of SeaSwan and a 180 degree view of the Caribbean sea. At 622 feet above sea level we enjoy gentle trade winds and complete quiet and privacy.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The view is amazing and guests arrive and are taken aback when they first see it. On a clear day you can see over 100 miles. We often get the comments of "it's better than the pictures". Complete privacy for our guests. After our guests are greeted we may only see them if they seek us out or need assistance. SeaSwan is luxurious and all the seating and bedding has been chosen for comfort. Alyce & Paul stock the kitchen with all the basics unusual for rental villas. Each guest receives a wine and cheese welcome basket and breakfast basket with Alyce's homemade muffins.
