There are exciting new options for visiting the islands of St Croix, Anegada and Virgin Gorda starting this month.
More often than not, when we chat about homes for sale here on St. John, there is some form of island-centric trait that makes a home quaint and charming, but maybe not as functional as one would prefer. But, today I have to share with you an INCREDIBLE Coral Bay villa that absolutely has it all! Quaint island charm meets high tech efficiency and luxurious Caribbean living in the beloved and beautiful four bedroom and four-bathroom villa. Let’s take a closer look at Coral Rays….
Happy Friday! When the sun sets on St. John, there are plenty of places to eat, drink, sing, and dance the night away in Cruz Bay. Lunch options during the day however… much more limited. That’s why we were thrilled to learn that Lovango Rum Bar, which serves hands down some of the best pizza and craft cocktails on Island, is opening for lunch starting Monday, April 3rd.
Good Morning, Good Morning! It has been a LONG time since we have seen an elevated culinary event on St. John! Anyone out there remember the Taste of St. John that happened annually at the Westin? Well, it was one of my favorite evenings of the year but hasn’t occurred since before Hurricane Irma. And, while this weekend of culinary festivities on Lovango Cay may look a bit different than Taste of St. John did, this three-day celebration of renowned chefs, fine foods, locally crafted spirits and elevated wines promises to be a fantastic way to spend a day or an evening (or three!) celebrating the arts of food and drink in style.
Good Morning, Good Morning! I’m reporting to all of you out there from a space that has likely been a beloved watering hole for each and every one of you over the years. A space with a panoramic view of the Cruz Bay waterfront from each and every bar stool and lounge table in the house. A space, once home a renowned $3 you call it happy hour, that now boasts deliciously fresh food and thoughtful craft cocktails with frozen drinks on tap. A space within stumbling distance from the ferry dock and sandy white shore of Cruz Bay. Ladies and Gentlemen, Rum Hut has undergone some incredible menu expansions and improvements over the past few months under the watchful eye of its new husband-and-wife management and culinary team. And, today, I want to shed some light on the amazingness happening in this beloved corner of your favorite island.
Good Morning, Good Morning! We all know that there are a TON of power charter boat companies operating out of St. Thomas and St. John, right? And when it comes time to choose which company to invest your one day on the water with, the choices can be way past overwhelming (especially if it is your first time!), correct? Ok, well, today I’m going to help you narrow down your selection of charter boat operators for your next trip around the USVI or the BVI. Sunshine Daydream Charters is owned and operated by someone who has spent a decade on St. John, the entire team of Captains are extremely knowledgeable about the Virgin Islands and the waters that surround us and, with four uber comfortable twin-hulled power boats to choose from for your day, they can accommodate any size group from two to forty-two!
One of the most important aspects of a community is the accessibility to health and wellness. Practicing yoga – whether at home or in a class, has a multitude of health benefits such as reducing stress, improving cardiovascular health, increasing flexibility, and encouraging mindfulness. It also creates a space to build community and share a collective energy through practice.
Certified instructor and creator of Love City Yoga, Corey Thomas recognized the need for organized, consistent yoga classes on island when she moved here from St. Thomas, four years ago. She started Love City Yoga last season, bringing much needed weekly classes to the Island. I went to one of the first classes, and it’s been beautiful to watch Love City Yoga grow over the last year.
Good Morning, Good Morning! Our regular time together here is coming to an end shortly, unfortunately. But I will be checking in with you regularly right here on News of St. John in between our adventures at sea on Asante. So, I thought it might be fitting to leave you all with a little info on what we will be up to on Asante in this next chapter of life so you can check in with us when you are visiting next!
Sonic Charters, a family owned and St. Thomas based company, has expanded their fleet and their charter destinations this season just in time for the holidays! This charter company, established in 2013, was formed by Morgan and Carrie Locke (And named for their pup Sonic!), after they migrated from St. Croix to St. Thomas in 2009. When they started, Sonic was just a four-year-old pup! And now their furry friend, and their business, have grown for nearly ten years and Sonic’s namesake company has expanded, in that time, from one boat to six! And they are venturing into the British Virgin Islands once again as well!
