SURVIVED THE HURRICANES AND LOOKING FABULOUS!!
Begun in 2005 and completed in the fall of 2012, Surewinds Estate has been a labor of love. It is designed for carefree island living…… no worries, barefeet, open windows and gentle breezes. The architectural style is classic Caribbean, (think masonry construction, ceiling fans, and colonial stonework ), updated with tropical hardwoods, an open floor plan, contemporary finishes and expansive outdoor living spaces.
Surewinds Estate, as its name implies, was sited to fully capture the cooling trade winds, which bathe the house in a continual ocean breeze. There is no greater luxury than living in an open air home where you can truly experience the sights and sounds of your natural surroundings. (Just in case the wind changes, the bedrooms are air conditioned.) From sunrise to sunset there are views to excite the eye and calm the senses.
Green Cay Plantation is on the south side of St. Thomas in Frenchman’s Bay Estate, centrally located between Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook. The house and attached apartment, overlook the beach at Bolongo Bay which is the home of the USVI Diving Club. There are no neighbors, no street lights and no traffic. Green Cay Plantation is a newly gated community featuring both luxury villas and year round island homes. The plantation roads are wide and safe for jogging, biking and kids at play. Surewinds is located at the end of a cul-de-sac so a stray car seldom passes by.
The four story, 4,500 sf layout of this property invites all sorts of possibilities. It is ideal for 4 couples, a large family seeking a separate in-law apartment, 2 family units, or a wedding party. With 4 ½ bathrooms, 2 ½ kitchens and sleeping space for up to 16 guests both privacy and convenience are well served. WE ALSO OFFER THE OPTION OF RENTING JUST THE MAIN HOUSE FOR GROUPS OF LESS THAN 11 GUESTS. THIS INCLUDES THE POOL AREA, ONLY THE LOWER LEVEL APARTMENT WOULD BE GATED OFF. SEE THE SEPARATE LISTING UNDER VILLA SUREWINDS.)
The Surewinds décor can be described as “put your feet up” casual. White slip covers are easily bleached. The watchword here is “clean and simple”. There is little clutter, so there’s less to worry about. The stainless modern kitchens are fully supplied for “real” cooking , and the electronics are state-of-the art (so you don’t get tooooo relaxed)! There is great space for entertaining, both indoor and out (as in a wedding). In-house catering by a noted island chef is available at an additional cost.

Finally here are some details to consider as you plan your vacation:
*This is a quiet, private setting. You will have to find your hustle and bustle elsewhere.
*We have done our best to make the house “child-safe” by gating the pool area, but nothing can replace parental supervision in a home that’s perched on a hill.
*Only the Main House / Main Floor is accessible without climbing at least a dozen stairs. There is a single stair at the front entrance, so wheelchair access is limited. If you are traveling with children, we suggest this house for Ages 3+, but we will let you be the judge.
*There are ceiling fans in every room, the 4 main bedrooms are air-conditioned. The breeze is fabulous!
* The 11’x 14’ pool is 9’ at the deep end, and about 3’ at the shallow end. It’s great for lounging, quick cool downs and some active pool play, but it’s NOT for diving or swimming laps (unless your laps are very short!).
