About the Property
Quiet neighborhood retreat. A special 1/1 overlooking the sea.
Our seaview retreat is a fully furnished 1 bedroom/1 bath extension to our house in a peaceful residential neighborhood. It has a private entrance, paved parking, pocket meditation garden, pool access, and refreshing tropical breezes with a wrap-around sea view. A beautiful 5-minute walk takes you to a pristine beach that you’re most likely to have all to yourself. There are lounge chairs in the shade, and even a small snorkeling reef right off the beach. When you return, an outdoor shower lets you wash away the sand while still gazing at the sea.The retreat has been completely remodeled and refurbished in a crisp, breezy tropical motif. It sleeps 1 to 4, featuring a comfy queen size bed in the bedroom and a full-size futon in the living room. The kitchen has all you need to prepare meals and tropical drinks that you can enjoy indoors or al fresco looking out to sea. The retreat promises you a peaceful, nurturing environment just moments away from all the island attractions.

Our dog is large and rambunctiously friendly, with free access to the pool area, so children not accustomed to big dogs might be uncomfortable.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Martha and Peter are delighted to welcome you to their beautiful island retreat. Peter is originally from Miami, Florida, and Martha from Austin, Texas. They relocated to St. Croix after a year of cruising the Caribbean aboard their 40-foot sailboat Lightheart. At every island they asked each other: “Could you imagine us living here?” Only on St. Croix did the answer come back yes. Absolutely, enthusiastically yes! Peter had a stellar 26-year career as an attorney, practicing primarily in Sarasota, Florida. His greater love, however, was his sailboat racing career which took him all over the world gathering championships and training younger sailors. Peter has also been a commercial and test pilot, lifeguard on Miami Beach, firefighter, school teacher and personal life coach. He currently is thrilled to be taking charter clients for daysailing trips around St. Croix and extended cruising trips on Lightheart, as well as teaching sailing through his association with the American Sailing Association. Martha practiced law in Austin for a few years, but the bulk of her career has been as a facilitator of personal growth and professional development experiences for both individuals and business clients. She has done much of her work in experiential “adventure learning” environments from sailboats to mountain tops; and she also loves delighting her business clients with extraordinarily effective business meetings delivered in the context of an island vacation. Martha offers personal life coaching and executive coaching island retreats, and also coaches via telephone and internet from her breezy tropical perch on a hill overlooking the Caribbean.
Why the Owner Chose Green Cay, St. Croix, USVI:
We searched the entire island, but knew the instant we saw this property that it had what we wanted. The views and easy access to the sea were paramount, but the bones of a great home were present too. We developed - and continue to develop the property to reflect our values of beauty, privacy, peace, comfort, convenience, and harmony with nature. If that’s what you’d like as your base from which to explore all that St. Croix has to offer, we think you've just found your place too.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We love the short walk to several contiguous beaches, the easy access to the marina and to Christiansted, the peace, quiet and friendliness of our neighborhood, the sound of the surf lulling us to sleep, the constant trade breezes coming through our windows, and the expansive views of the Caribbean Sea. We love living in concert with nature and her gifts, conserving and contributing however we can.
