For those of you who can’t get enough of St. John, there’s a new villa blog in town.
Lori S. of New York recently purchased Windswept, a four-bedroom villa in Estate Hard Labor in Coral Bay. Closing on the house last Friday, Lori decided to create a blog about her experiences in becoming a homeowner on St. John.
“After a long time thinking about it, and a crazy weekend of looking, we made an offer on a house on the island of St John in the USVI,” Lori wrote on the blog. “The offer was accepted and now we have a house…. The house needs work…. and so this blog is the ‘story’ of our renovation process as we prepare the house for friends, family and eventually renters (if we ever get that far!)”
In her first post, Lori admits that the house “had issues” but even she was surprised about some of the findings during her first few days as a St. John homeowner. Did you know that rodents like to gnaw on kitchen cabinets? Neither did I.
The blog is called HardLaborSTJ – Renovating a House … Let the Hijinks Begin. Sounds like it will be a good one. Check it out here.
