Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

About the owner: My grandparents moved to St. Croix in 1965. Five years later, I was baptized on the island as an infant. The property has remained in the family all these years, and our connection to it is deeply personal. It's our sincere wish that anyone staying at Grapetree Escape also feel that sense of belonging...and a desire to come back, time-and-time-again!
