Back in October, we told you how a television crew was in town filming an upcoming episode of HGTV’s Caribbean Life. Well the episode aired last night, and we have to say, it was definitely one of the better shows that’s featured St. John in a while in terms of getting it right.
The show featured Joe and Karina, owners of The Beach Bar, and followed them around the island as they looked to purchase a home. Now here’s a little secret about these shows: When they come in and film, it’s after the fact. So if you happen to know the people featured on these shows, you already know the outcome. But it’s still super fun to watch.
So last night’s show started out with Joe and Karina telling the backstory of how they met in New York City and how they decided to leave the hustle and bustle of Manhattan for the island life. The couple immediately hopped on Rock & Rolla and quickly featured Iggie, who captains the boat and also bar tends at The Beach Bar.
They then went on to check out three houses along with realtor Eric Bauman. They looked at homes in Chocolate Hole, Carolina and in Coral Bay. We don’t want to give too much away, so you’ll have to watch the show to see which they picked … if any.
The show ended with a few shots from some of our favorite spots on island – Gallows Point, Cruz Bay beach and, of course, The Beach Bar.
The episode airs again on April 28th at 3:30 p.m. EST and on May 17th at 9 p.m. EST on HGTV. You can watch the episode online now by clicking this link.
