This is a lovely one-bedroom apt in downtown Christiansted. Located in the heart of the shopping and restaurants. We are also minutes away from the boardwalk and the beach.
This is a lovely apartment that is very centrally located . This is 18th century historic complex that has been modified over the years. It comprises of three buildings. Two cottages and a two-story main building that faces Company St. This unit is located in the top of the main building and the complex is a mix of residents, vacation rentals and a restaurant on the ground floor.
Guests have access to the apartment and surrounding courtyard.
We love to meet our guests, although we are not always able to do so upon your arrival. If we can, we will welcome you at the apt, if we can't or if you prefer to self-check-in we will provide you with the code for the keypad on the door.
My husband is a musician and I am a visual artist. Although my family is originally from Barbados & Trinidad & Tobago I grew up in the Virgin Islands (both St. Thomas & St. Croix). I left to study at Columbia University in NY and then later at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba where I met my future husband who at the time was studying to be an opera singer. We met my third day in Havana and have been inseparable ever since.
I currently teach at the University of the Virgin Islands, work as a professional artist and manage our real estate investments. My husband works as a jeweler at Crucian Gold and has his own salsa band and Latin jazz trio. Since leaving Cuba in 2005, we have traveled to many places in the world, but both agree that St. Croix is something special. That's why we have chosen to build our lives and raise a family here.
We were attracted to this property because we were looking for our own space to teach our salsa classes. We saw it on a Friday afternoon and had an offer in on Monday morning. We love the location and the historical architectural details. We did 80% of the work ourselves, but in true Caribbean form many friends have helped us along the way. This has been a project of a lifetime and a dream come true for both of us. But most of all we are happy to bring more joy and beauty into our community and share it with locals and visitors alike. I am a proud Virgin Islander and look forward to showing our guests why.
