About the owner: Hi World! I am from St. Croix, US, Virgin Islands and currently live in San Antonio, TX. The picture is of me in front of the house in the mid 70's with my horse. Now I am married with 9 grandchildren. We love to travel and experience places the way locals do. I am former military and my husband is retired from the Army. I am a Navy brat, a Star Trek fan and work in the IT industry. I go between our house in San Antonio and Mango House, where I grew-up. My father was a Naval photographer and you will see some of his work in the hallway and other places in the house. If by chance you recognize anything in his pictures I would love to hear about it. My motto in life is 'To build something wonderful, you have to start by doing it right.'
Why the Owner Chose Frederiksted, St. Croix, USVI:
No matter where my life took me, I have returned to STX every year. Now I am bringing my grandchildren when they reach 11 to make sure we preserve our heritage and they understand the magic of our Island. When my father died in 2011, I inherited this house. My parents built the house in 1972. I use to go with my dad to the architects office in Frederiksted. Most Caribbean houses tend to have small rooms, specially back then. My Dad was claustrophobic so he needed to make sure the house was as open as possible. While it was being built they put in a wall between the living room and dining room. My dad told them it had to go. In the end that is why you will see that short wall between those two rooms. My father had an obsession with mango's. He'd plant a tree from seed and if he did not like the fruit (yrs later) he had it cut down. If he did like the fruit then it stayed and no one could touch them no matter how big they got. We have trees that are around 80'. After he passed away I had 10 mango trees removed (we still have 14) and most of the others pruned. We all felt like he was going to come back from the grave to chew me out. :-) We have travelled to many places in the world but none of them compare to the raw beauty of this Island we call home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to just about everything! Hurricane Hugo caused destruction in much of St. Croix in 1989. Mango House became a refuge for 13 people. All 13 survived in the guest bathroom. Mango House is built with cinder blocks inside and out, and concrete. Working generator just in case it's needed.
