Celebrating “Olde Year’s Night” CRUZIAN STYLE! I watched the news this morning and learned that there will be about a million people in Times Square tonight – and the temperature will be around 20 degrees. You would have to take me there at gun point……but I hope those of you brave enough to be out in that crowd and in those temps have a great night! If you’re wondering how we Cruzians ring in the new year, I’ll tell ya!  Tonight, there will be music playing most everywhere, great food and drink specials, and hugs and love spread unselfishly about as we say goodbye to 2013 and welcome in 2014.  Most of the festivities will be outdoors and include eating, drinking, and wearing flipflops or going barefoot!  It will be a balmy 75 degrees, which is cool by our standards.  But most definitely...

Maybe you don’t want to deal with moving internationally.  Then consider St Croix!  Matt Bauer, president of BetterWorld Telecom in Reston, Virginia, did!  ”It’s part of the United States, so you don’t even need a passport to go  there – you just need a driver’s license,” he said. “It’s like moving to another state … And at 5 PM you walk out the front door and run off  the pier and jump into the Caribbean ocean.” St. Croix also boasts another feature that will make it appealing to  anyone looking for a picturesque place to set up a new office. It wants  to become a hub for remote workers. Three of the Internet’s biggest cables connect here, so it’s sitting on a huge portion of the Internet. Local authorities are currently putting in about $300 million  worth of new infrastructure to exp...

Dancing in the Moonlight….    St Croix is always beautiful, but when the moon is full, it is magical.  You can literally read by the full moonlight outside, and the sky is such a gorgeous blue!  Last night, some friends and I enjoyed a moonlight sail on Caribbean Sea Adventure’s JOLLY MON catamaran (which I have listed for sale), drank some rum punch, and listened and danced to the smooth and funky sounds of “Rhythm and Groove” as they performed live for us right on the boat.  It was just delightful!  I couldn’t help thinking that if you bought this business, you’d actually be earning money from these outings.  Man…..and I though I had a great job!!!! Seems a lot of folks here have figured out that work doesn’t have to be drudgery.  Sailing, snorkeling, diving, and hiking are but a few ...

Yes, you read that right…not Island hopping, which is very much fun, but Island hoping, as in hoping that someday you can live here!! An old friend of mine recently visited the island with his girlfriend, for about the third year in a row, and they finally decided to look at some condos while they were here. See, they are HOPING to someday make St Croix their home.  It was so great to see them, and see how much they love this place, and share in their dream of someday moving to St Croix. And while they are not “ready” yet – they are fueling their dream by looking at places and making some decisions about WHERE on the island they’d want to live.  That’s an important step!  I call it “putting some feet in your dreams!”   Now, some Realtors may consider this a waste of their time; these fo...

There is absolutely NOTHING that will get me moving faster than seeing a sleek grey fin come out of the water in front of my condo.  This morning around 7:00 a.m., as I was still half-asleep and stumbling toward the kitchen to make coffee, I saw that familiar site just feet from the shore right in front of my condo.  Talk about springing into action!!!  Like a mad woman I was grabbing bathing suit tops and bottoms (never mind that they didn’t come close to matching) and heading for the door.  I keep my fins and snorkel right by my door for just such an occasion, so I was off and running and in the water within about 2 minutes of seeing them!   I swam like my life depended on it, but today, I didn’t catch up with them.  I have, several times in the past, but not today.  Oh well, it sure ...

Q&A About Some of the Potentially “Unfamiliar” Information Displayed in ST CROIX, USVI Listings   Our MLS listings provide quite a bit of useful information to a potential homebuyer. However, a lot of it is different than what you’d see in the states, and you may wonder what some of the information means.  Below are some questions from a customer, with my answers.  I also included some other general questions/answers that you might find useful.  Hope this is helpful! Approximately how long would it take to drive from Christiansted to, say, the Cane Bay area, or to Frederiksted. To drive from the westernmost tip of STX to the easternmost is about an hour.  Driving from Christiansted to the North Shore (Cane Bay area) takes about 30 – 40 minutes, and it’s about the same between the two to...

It’s probably nice and sunny where ever you are right now, but in about six months, you may be longing for some sand, sea, and warm temperatures. With the prices here at an all time low, and interest rates poised to go up, now is a great time to come to St Croix for “condo shopping!” We have nearly 200 condos on the market (inventory is lower now than in the 8 years I’ve been here), ranging in price from $39,000 to about 1.5 million. Unfortunately, we don’t have any “new” condo developments here, but many of the units have been remodeled, or are waiting to be – and with Home Depot here now, that’s not such a difficult task. I get a lot of inquiries on condos; people find it hard to believe you can get an ocean front 2 bedroom 2 bath unit for under $100,000, and they want to know more! E...

Four things you ladies may have to give up if you move to the VI:   1.  Make-up. Unless you are a fan of the "raccoon look", or will be inside all day, a lot of make-up just does not work here!  But hey, NO one wears it, so you'll "blend". We are very real here - and the culture is very accepting.  It's much more cool to be cool and be able to take a dip at a moment's notice and not worry about raccoon eyes!   2.  Long hair.  Yes, it's beautiful.  And yes, you can put it up and be cool.  But let's face it, it's a pain in the butt and you will be SO much more comfortable with short, sassy, easy hair here.  Anyway, short hair makes you look younger, so get over yourself and cut that hair!   3.  I'm not even sure they still make these, it's been so long since I've seen, worn, or needed the...

Immeasurable Riches in the USVI   As I floated in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea yesterday (yeah, that's FEBRUARY 17th), I reflected upon the many ways that I am blessed to live here.   First of all, it's February and many of you are freezing your butts off, even in the Southern states. I am toasty and warm, wearing flip-flops and a sundress. The weather here is pretty much perfect, all year long.   I can go swimming ANY DAY of the year here, and most days, get to enjoy the gorgeous sunshine and warm tropical breezes.   I never have to put on socks or shoes. I really like that!! And I get a "natural" pedicure from walking in the sand!!   My wardrobe is very simple, and inexpensive. I don't own an ironing board, iron, or anything that needs to be dry cleaned! And I still manag...
