About our home

Our home is comfortable and cosy with lots of windows to catch the sea breezes and each room has a ceiling fan. The kitchen has all new appliances and the kitchen and dining room are an open floor plan . There is a king size bed in the master bedroom and the second bedroom has a double bed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with a large tiled shower. Our solar hot water system gives us continuous hot water.

We have a large covered porch with outdoor furniture to enjoy the tropical landscape of an acre of land with colorful plantings, mango trees and banana palms. Our outdoor shower in a secluded courtyard is perfect for rinsing off sand after a day at the beach and taking a moonlit shower under the stars at night is a tropical experience not to be missed!

We have two family pets - very friendly sister cats who come and go as they please.

More about us

  1. We are an active couple with our youngest of four children currently in his fourth year of college. Our grown children live in California, New York, and New Hampshire and, much to our delight, have given us 6 grandchildren ranging in ages 1 year to 13 years old.

    Mark retired after a 41 year teaching career and is a competitive biker and runner. Sasha is a child and family therapist and works in a private school. Our family has lived in St. Croix for over 45 years. We love our island community with its diverse cultural heritage and bask in the year round warm temperatures and the many outdoor activities.

    We love to travel and have had wonderful home exchange experiences. Our spare time is often spent gardening and landscaping. We enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, and snorkeling.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We live in St. Croix, the largest of the Virgin Islands, but more secluded and with fewer cruise ships. We're ten minutes from the nearest town of Christiansted, in a quiet area, the last of three houses on a short unpaved road. We live near a salt pond nature preserve, so we are visited by many species of tropical birds, including large herons and egrets . We are five minutes by car from a beach with excellent snorkeling - many tropical fish and colorful corals in clear ocean water - and also five minutes by car from a world class hotel, golf course, and tennis courts.

St. Croix has beautiful white sand beaches which are perfect for long walks, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and picnicking. There's a beach for everyone - secluded ones that are fun to hike to, family oriented ones with water sport activities and shallow waves just right for young children to jump in, and beaches with lots of shade for lounging in beach chairs and beach side restaurants.

St. Croix has several marinas and day sails are very popular, especially to Buck Island which is a national park with an underwater snorkeling trail in one of the finest marine gardens in the Caribbean Sea. Sunset sails are also popular. St. Croix is a world class dive site and offers dive certification classes and dive tours.

On St. Croix you can also visit a 16 acre Botanical Garden with over a thousand exotic plants and trees, a restored sugar plantation museum, and lots of places for hiking and exploring. We are a multi-cultural island with West Indian, Hispanic, Arab, Danish, and American populations.
