Another Successful Closing At Islandia

   “Sea Palms” in the upscale  neighborhood of Great Cruz Bay  closed this week with a list price of  $1.679M.  The  seller was the original owner and sad to have to part with this beautiful home.  We trust the new owners will enjoy it just as much.  Sales so far this year are about on a par with last years sales, numbers wise , but selling prices have increased a bit.  Islandia is still leading the pack on St John in listing volume as well as sales.  Our parent company, Sea Glass properties is leader is sales for the Virgin Islands as a whole.

Our newest wild donkey

Welcome to the world little one.

We have a new member of our donkey population here on St John. Donkeys are wild on St John and have been here since the Spaniards brought them as work animals back in the 1700′s. As you can see by the photo, they are thriving here. A male donkey is called a Jack, a female donkey is called a Jenny and baby is called a foal. A donkey can live as long a 50 years. Adult donkeys have an established territory and may be dominated by one Jack. A donkey’s bray can be heard as far as three miles. The gestation period for a donkey is 12 months. If you breed a Jack with a Mare( female horse) you get a Mule. If you bred a donkey with a zebra it is called a Zonkey. Although the donkeys may be cute to look at, and seem docile, they can be dangerous. They bite and kick so be careful when you approach them. You may notice some fat rolls on some of the older donkeys and that is from poor eating habits (like human food from tourists). Please do NOT feed the wild donkeys, they have plenty of organic foods to eat provided by Mother Nature. They do not require the same amount of water that a horse does, but they still need some water. In dry season you may find them in Coral Bay from time to time drinking collected rain water out of the beached dinghys. We hope that when you visit ST John you have the opportunity to see our wild donkeys.When you visit, also give us a call and we would be delighted to help you find a nice piece of real estate and maybe get to see a donkey or two.

St. John USVI

Its another beautiful day here in Paradise. The water is warm and clear and the skies are blue with white puffy clouds. There is a nice gentle breeze to keep things cool. There are so many options for enjoying the day. The Landing in downtown Cruz Bay serves up a great breakfast with awesome coffee and view of the ferries, taxis and park, then maybe browse some shops in Mongoose Junction while digesting. Enjoy some time laying on the white sand beach for a while before a snorkel at one of the world famous beaches. Turtles abound and pelicans diving for the millions of minnows below. Lunchtime is approaching and Shipwreck Landing in Coral Bay serves up a great burger. Shop for some tee shirts at Tall Ship Trading Company located right next door. If a little hike sounds of interest, Salt Pond Bay is an excellent choice because it offers a nice diversity of landscapes and goes all the way out to the point of Rams Head for a spectacular view. A short swim at the beach before heading back to take a nap in a hammock to rest up for dinner somewhere along the waterfront back in downtown Cruz Bay. That would conclude one of many perfect days here on St John.
Wouldn’t it be nice to return from this kind of day to your own home, your own hammock, your own bed? Maybe never leave? We can help you make this day possible. Come visit us in St John, maybe stay a while. Please contact Susan or Mark Baron and we will be delighted to assist you in finding that perfect island retreat.
