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 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.

Best location in St Croix!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 people and were looking for a house on St Croix. One of the people in our party had lived on St Croix for 2 years back in 89/90, so she knew the island well. She helped in our search for the house, and after looking at several great homes on St Croix, we chose this house. The view of Buck Island and the beach in your own "yard" were the main reasons.

Like the other reviewers have said, and it's true, despite the pics showing the great views, they don't do the house justice. It feels much larger than the pics project, being very long to maximize the ocean views. We were lucky enough to be the couple with the master suite, which has an amazing view of the ocean and island, oversized bedroom (with an adjoining, albeit empty, exercise/yoga room). There's even an office with a printer and hi speed wifi throughout the house (cell reception varied based on carrier, altho none were great). The rest of the house is large and accommodating too, with only one bedroom that doesn't have ocean view.

We were most impressed with the great kitchen, which we utilized for all but a couple meals for our entire week. The kitchen table looks out onto Buck Island, but if you want to sit outside, which we did a lot, there's a whole other dining room table on the extremely large deck. If you want to hang out and enjoy time with a group, this is an amazing house to do so.

There's tons to do on the island, we snorkeled with Big Beards Tour and scuba dived with Dive Experience, highly recommend both places. Christiansted (shops and tourist activities) is within 15 min, and there's a great grocery store called Seaside Market that was within 8 min. We shopped there for all our grocery needs, a lil pricey (seemed like everything was a $1 or $2 more than back home) but lots of variety, including alcohol. Speaking of that, there's a small bar called Castaways that you can literally walk to that is just past the home. They had open mic night on Thursday night and it was a blast. Plus they have $5 cheeseburgers that were really good!

Sorry this review is so long, but everyone in our group loved this house and the location, if you can be so lucky as to stay here, you should do it, you'll be glad you did!

You will never want to leave this home!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our grown children, son-in-law and grandson to St. Croix for a week's vacation. Writing a review for this property is actually difficult, as it so spectacular it is hard to put into words the beauty of this home! The photos of this property are great, but actually experiencing it is oh so much more wonderful! You could just stay at the home all week and be completely satisfied. The views from the entire home are amazing, the pool and beach are fabulous, and the array of amenities are unbelievable. The location couldn't be any better-close to shopping, sites, and great restaurants. Waking up in the master bedroom, you just need to lift your head off of the pillow and look at the most amazing view! And that's before you even get out of bed! (And the bed is soooo comfortable!) We spent a lot of time on the outdoor patio, just hanging out. Our grandson never wanted to leave the pool! The beach is so private and beautiful, both day and night. But do force yourself to leave and experience the rest of the island. The islanders are friendly, the sites are fun to visit (don't miss the fort in Christiansted) and the restaurants are worth the visit. (Duggans, The Greek Pickle are great!) We have wonderful memories from our family vacation that we will never forget. Thank you Tami and Mark for providing an amazing vacation haven for us! All I can say is this home is pure perfection!

More than we expected.

  • 4 of 5

We could tell from the photo's that this home would make for a relaxing and exciting vacation, but they didn't do the home and setting justice. The home is clean and spacious, plenty of room for everyone. It had all the conveniences and I can speak from personal experience.......the master bed is extremely comfortable. The setting of the home on a large lot waterfront site gave us the privacy we expected and more. You can truly sit on the beach all day and not see a sole. I will hopefully be back.

Owner's Response: The home is exactly what we promise...Solitude. The home and setting is so inviting it is hard to leave the home to explore the rest of the island.
