New Restaurant Coming to Coral Bay

Cruz Bay restaurateur’s Scott Wilkies and Hillary Tittle, owners of the fabulous Rhumb Lines have set their sites on Coral Bay!

 

The former home of Donkey Diner and Sputnik’s bar is in the process of being transformed.  A major renovation is underway and the results are going to be amazing.  I was able to get a tour of this exciting eatery from Scott.  The outside dining decks and bar and the interior layout offers fabulous seating arrangements for socializing and more intimate lunch & dinner experiences.  Whether you choose to dine al fresco, or not, rest assured that this experience will be a great addition to Coral Bay.

Our Favorite Island in the Caribbean

There are so many islands in the Caribbean to visit. Most have beaches, but not all. Some have great shopping, but not all. The thing about St John compared to so many other islands is that it has a little bit of everything for everyone. There are some great restaurants, some fine shops and galleries, and some of the best beaches in the world. The fact that most of the island is a National Park keeps it from being over developed, but then we have Cruz Bay for the fun restaurant, shops and waterfront bar scene. There are some rustic island style homes that you would see on postcards or in movies and then we have many very large high end homes with all of the finest amenities. There is plenty of exploring to do here between the many hikes and beaches. If you feel the need to explore off of St John, the BVI’s are right on our doorstep and either a ferry ride or rental boat away. Great day tripping for the whole family. Once you have settled in you may realize how convenient St Thomas is if you feel the need for the mega stores like Home Depot, KMart and Office Max. Basically, St John has it ALL. It isnt just a great place to visit, it is a great place to LIVE. We have an infrastructure, a bus system, a power grid, several grocery stores, and so much more than most other islands in the Caribbean. The best thing is that it is a US territory so you have many of the same privileges that you might have stateside, like being able to work, own property, own a business and come and go as you please. No work permits necessary for US citizens. No local partner needed to open a business or invest. It just doesnt get any better! To own a home in St John is just like owning a piece of Paradise. If you would like to follow your intuition and make the move down, we can help you. We will be happy to introduce you to the many areas of St John and what those different areas have to offer. Do you prefer to have the convenience of town and St Thomas views, or would you rather be on the quiet east end with stunning down island views? We can assist you with with whatever your desire is.
