About Sharon Early

We purchased our home in St. Croix in 2002 and started living the dream in May of 2005.

Intending to live the retired life after a 20 year career in the Nuclear Power industry, I gradually transitioned back to the working world. I started as a part-time assistant at Coldwell Banker St. Croix Realty and I have been a full time Agent since 2007 specializing in Property Management and Vacation Rentals. Whether you are looking for the perfect vacation in paradise or you're ready to make your move, I can assist you with fulfilling your dream.

Originally from Virginia, I graduated from Christopher Newport University with a degree in Fine Arts. When not working, I enjoy gardening and have been a volunteer at the St. George Botanical Gardens since arriving on island. Other interests are sculpting, snorkeling, photography, and the never-ending home renovation projects.

My energy and attention to detail enable me to do whatever is necessary to ensure the expectations of both the property owner and the vacationer are always exceeded.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We (family of 4 with 2 boys 4 and 8) spent 2 weeks at this beautiful home and definitely enjoyed our stay. The home is in an excellent location on the North Shore, nearly equally spaced between Christiansted and our favorite beach of Cane Bay. The top level of the home consists of three separate buildings, or pods, and a beautiful outdoor dining area. The lower level has additional bedrooms and the pool area. I was extremely impressed with how well maintained the property was, particularly the gardens. Dozens of palm trees surround the property, together with many beautiful tropical plants. The feeling was similar to being in an exclusive hotel. Very private, very safe. We would certainly recommend it to other travelers.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We visited The Sunflower Villa in July 2015. "Momma's Boys" vacation. My best friend, her two boys ages 13 and 17, myself and my two boys ages 12, and 16.

Initially the boys were a little bummed because they thought that we were going to be right on the beach ... However , it didn't take long for them to fall in love with the property. The swimming pool, and they got a kick out of the outdoor shower.

Stellar view of the ocean, and peaceful ambiance. We would watch the sunrise in the morning while drinking our coffee ( or mimosas ) and we enjoyed the breeze coming off of the ocean in the evening .

Loved the privacy, as well as the amenities, had everything we needed.

Remote location away from everything, so you will need to rent a car to go into Christiansted.

We truly fell in love with the Island, and the "Locals" would definitely like to visit again!

Can't wait to return to Sunflower

  • 5 of 5

I have spent a great deal of time in the Islands, and have stayed at a lot of different properties, but Sunflower may be my new favorite. Privacy is a huge factor for me, and I cant imagine a more private place than Sunflower. At the end of a winding road overlooking the ocean from the hillside, I enjoyed the constant breezes coming in off of the ocean. I opened the French doors every night and fell asleep to the waves breaking on the shoreline below. Great pool and nice outdoor shower available as well. This is just a real comfortable place to stay. Close to everything, yet far enough away from it all at the same time. Property manager did a great job of answering our questions before leaving us on our own, and the restaurant and grocery suggestions were definitely on point.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

The property description says it all but still falls short of adequately describing this villa and the views. The grounds are so lush and beautiful with mature landscaping that feels so natural. The palm trees all around make a beautiful sound when the wind blows, which was the entire time we were there. Combine that with the sounds of the waves and the glistening sea below that stretches into infinity and you will not want to leave. We spent countless hours outside just gazing at the view and stars at night. We did not do many of the things planned because this property is so amazing and we just wanted to stay there and enjoy it. From the moment we met with the agent to the time we left was an enjoyable and positive experience. There were a couple of minor issues such as the DISH not working because of a storm that had just blown through but these issues were dealt with promptly and professionally. I was a bit hesitant to book this property because normally I like to be on the beach, but I am so glad I did. Being on the side of the mountain was a truly unique and serene experience and one thoroughly enjoyed. The villa is well stocked with many items for use such as sunscreen, bug spray, kitchen spices, etc. Love Love Love Sunflower!

Unparalleled Views and Ocean Breeze

  • 5 of 5

An amazing home on the cliffs overlooking the ocean with full 180 degree views of the ocean and bay. The cool ocean breeze racing up the side of the cliff is wonderful and keeps you cool even in the hottest parts of the day. We left the doors open in the main house and in each of the bedrooms. If you want, you can even turn on an A/C (individual ones in each room). What a wonderful rental home!!!

Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from St. Croix and stayed at the sunflower villa. We were a group of 7 (ages ranging from 3 to 75) and really enjoyed our stay. You do need a rental car to reach the property but rates (car rentals) are reasonable on St. Croix. Overall, we really liked the concept of having separate living areas with a shared common room. This place has up-to-date amenities; no complaints at all. The people in charge of this rental are very accommodating and eager to help. Somewhat strange that the lower apartment did not have AC. That seemed out of place. Other than that, we had an impeccable stay. I already miss the views... If I ever return back to St. Croix, this will be on the top of my list...

The Best View On The Island!

  • 5 of 5

The Sunflower Villa is truly a home away from home (which is not easy to find). My wife and our two children (4 & 6) spent a wonderful week at this beautiful home, my brother and his wife joined us. Because of the property layout (separate buildings) we had plenty of privacy and the views are incredible. The property itself is like a resort, nicely landscaped, gated drive, pool, with all the amenities that you are accustom to at home (for less cost than a resort stay!). The surrounding area is very safe and well kept which was very important to us. Driving around the island was a breeze, the home is very close to Cane Bay (our favorite beach on St. Croix) and Christiansted is not far. Sharon the property manager was a joy to work with and made our stay and experience even better. Our entire family wanted to stay longer, which is always a good sign. We would highly recommend the property and look forward to returning in the future!
