Well folks, it’s pretty clear that the crew over at HGTV really loves St. John because they were back on island yesterday filming a new episode of Caribbean Life.
According to its website, Caribbean Life follows “families as they leave the mainland behind and head to the Caribbean to live on island time. Join their search for an affordable slice of heaven, touring gorgeous homes on white sandy beaches.” This latest episode follows Dana and Troy Neil.
Troy is part owner of Cruz Bay Watersports. The couple has a very adorable son named Tucker.
Dana and Troy filmed at Joe’s Rum Hut on Cruz Bay beach yesterday for several hours alongside realtor Amanda Arquit. Amanda is a realtor with Cruz Bay Realty.
This is the third time that HGTV has filmed on island over the past year. Julie Hoy and David Thomeczek, managers of Coconut Coast Villas, filmed an episode last November. That episode should air soon. Liz and Steve Horner, owners of Barefoot Cowboy, also filmed back in 2016. Their episode aired January 1st.
We’ll keep you posted on when this latest episode will air.
(Side note: I know there will be several people who will not be happy about the filming. We get these comments a lot. But please remember, that these shows promote our island and subsequently bring visitors here. Tourism is what this island runs on. So these shows are a blessing for us, not a curse.)
