About Tami Healey

My husband and I visited St Croix for Valentines Day from Atlanta, GA. We absolutely fell in love with the island and the people here. This is the US best kept secret.

Tami Healey purchased this house in 2014

Why Tami Healey chose USVI/St. Croix

This home offers a private sandy beach, pool and views of Buck Island. The view is one that you can't describe. Location is everything and the home is close to restaurants, the marinas and downtown Christiansted. This home is one of few that is located directly on the beach.

What makes this house unique

Privacy, privacy, privacy!!

Great week at an amazing beach home in St. Croix

  • 5 of 5

Four couples from Wisconsin had a great week in April 2017 at his beachfront home. The pictures are 100% accurate for what you will see upon arrival but the view from the deck, pool and beach make the long trip from cold Wisconsin well worth it. We were able to rent a van that accommodated our group of 8 plus luggage and had no issues driving on the other side of the road. Having Castway's and Ziggy's a short 2 minute walk for a drink/something to eat or supplies was nice but it was just short drive into town to a larger grocery store that allowed us to stock up for the week (in addition to eating at some great places downtown). We spent most days at the pool or on the beach enjoying the weather and cool drinks. The beachfront home met all of our needs and then some. We had a great time and would highly recommend this property to others considering St. Croix. Thank you Tami and Mark.

Owner's Response: We have always said if you are going to visit the islands the most important thing is being on the beach and a postcard view.

nice location

  • 4 of 5

This home is not as fancy as many of the island homes that we have rented but the décor is tasteful unlike the wild tropical colors that some owners think they need because they are on an island. The beach only had 2 homes on it so it was very private. It was located near several good restaurants and only 15 minutes from town. If the wind stops you will have issues with insects but most of the time there is a nice breeze. We had a very nice week there.

Owner's Response: We wanted to keep the house in a casual beach style to compliment the million dollar view. We will continue to add to the property and welcome all suggestions. The location as mentioned is close to everything that you need but offers the privacy that most guests desire. As for the "no seeums" they can be a pest on any of the islands and unfortunately there is little we can do except encourage visitors to wear deet for protection.

Great house, excellent location, your own resort

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with 3 other couples stayed 5 nights in this house during the 3rd week of Oct. The house is very spacious and spread out. The photos of the interior are accurate. It was very clean and you can tell it's been well taken care of. The photos of the outside don't do it justice, it's truly amazing. The deck views are awesome w/ Buck Island in the background. The pool and pool area are large so your entire party can hang out. Plenty of seating for all. We spent the majority of our time down on the beach. It's a very spacious and private. The owners supply water shoes, floats, coolers, snorkel equipment, kayaks, beach towels, etc. Another thing we loved was the covered bar on the beach. It all lights up at night. We had dinner and drinks there multiple nights. The caretaker Matt, who lives on the property, was great, we saw him daily and he answered all the questions we had. The house is a ten. The one and only recommendation I do have would be a fan or fans in the main living room as well as the outdoor sitting area directly when you walk out dinning room doors. Within walking distance (3 minutes) are Ziggy's and Castaways. Ziggys is a convenience store with a grill. Great breakfast and lunch sandwiches. Castaways is an outdoor bar/restaurant. It doesn't look like much but the food and atmosphere are great. They do take out and deliver. We actually ate there 3 nights! Christiansted is a great little town on the water, its about a 15 - 20 minute car ride. Shupes, Rum Runners, and Angry Nates are some good places to grab a drink or a bite to eat. If you want to snorkel go with Big Beards. We took a trip to Buck Island with them, everyone in the group had a blast. We also had an awesome fishing trip with Hook & Sun charters. I have to give credit to Tami for recommending Sandy Point. It's a good haul from the house (prob 45 minute ride) but totally worth it. One if the most beautiful beaches I've seen. St Croix as a whole is easy to navigate around, the roads are rough but that was expected. We all felt safe and comfortable at all times. Like anywhere just be smart and use good judgement. In regards to cell phones AT&T worked well everywhere. Verizon worked in the towns but was useless elsewhere. The house has wireless which was great. We're already talking about a return trip to St. Croix and this house, you can't go wrong!!

Owner's Response: Yes, this is an exceptional property and we work hard to make sure we meet everyone's expectations. The island offers a beautiful background and with Buck Island as your back yard, how can you go wrong? As you said, the photos do the property little justice but that's the great surprise for everyone that stays here!

Loved this house, the beach was breathtaking and we were close to activities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house in May 2016 and it was fantastic. Our group consisted of 6 adults and two kids and this house was grand! It was spacious, beautifully decorated and very clean. The views of the beach were even better then the photos show. We were able to snorkel right from the house and two in our group used the kayaks to paddle to Buck Island. The kids (and adults) loved the pool and sitting around the pool, looking out at the beach was unforgettable. One of our favorite things was to take a walk on the beach and hunt for sea glass, and then have necklaces made from it it at a shop in Christiansted. Christiansted was a short 15 minute drive away and we enjoyed going there to walk around, looking at the old government buildings and of course the shops and restaurants.

Gorgeous home and pool with private beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved the spectacular home. The master bedroom is huge with a very spacious walk in shower. The kitchen was great!! We spent a lot of time on the full house length deck in the evenings. The pool was perfect for our kids. The private beach was wonderful. We spent many lazy days relaxing on the beach or at the beach bar. The kayaks provided an activity break when ever one was needed. The night home lighting was spectacular. The on site groundskeeper was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this home to any group of 8 or less.
