As you can see from the pictures
above, Dawn and I love to travel! We work very hard...just so we can
spend all of our money on traveling! We have been all over the
world, but what is nearest and dearest to our hearts are tropical
destinations. Of all the places we have traveled together, St. Croix
was the place that we truly fell in love with. We love to swim,
snorkel, SCUBA dive (St. Croix has some of the best diving
anywhere), sail, eat, drink, shop, eat and drink some more...St.
Croix has it all!
We visited St. Croix for
the first time in 1998. We had already been to many of the Caribbean
Islands, as well as many other tropical destinations, so we thought
we would give St. Croix a try. We invited my parents to come with us
and rented a villa not too far from where Villa Dawn is located. One
day during this fateful trip, after my Dad and I probably had one
too many Rum drinks, I sat looking out at the view and dreamed of
one day owning a home of my own on St. Croix. I told my wife that I
had been calculating....if we used all of our savings we just might
be able to buy a house on St. Croix and rent it enough to pay the
bills. She said, "That's a nice idea but I don't think so!" The next
morning, as I was sitting out on the deck nursing a terrible
headache, she came over and said, "You know, I've been thinking,
you're probably right, we could do it" to which I replied "Do what?"
I didn't remember the conversation at all! Several months later we
were on a Caribbean Cruise with Dawn's Mom and St. Croix was one of
the Ports of Call. We decided to look at some real estate...just for
the fun of it. By noon that day we found Villa Dawn, a mere shadow
of what it is today, and put in an offer. The next day we were
docked on St. Thomas. We called the real estate agent on St. Croix
from a phone on the beach. "Did they accept our offer?" we asked.
YES! was the reply! OH...MY...GOSH! WHAT DID WE DO! The rest
We decided to build a
business on St. Croix so that some day we might retire there and
rest our weary bones on a beautiful, warm and sunny St. Croix
Dawn and I married in 1989
and hope to be able to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary together on St.
Croix! We have no children, except for our cat, our fish and of
course our homes on St. Croix! We live in Colorado...another
beautiful place. Our life together has been blessed in so many ways
that we hope we can pass some of our good fortune on to you in the
form of a wonderful, relaxing vacation. Whether you are two love
birds on a romantic getaway, taking a family vacation , or
going with a bunch of friends having the time of your lives, we pledge
that we will do everything we can to make your stay at our
properties and your visit to St. Croix the best vacation you have
ever had. We hope that you will enjoy Caribbean Dream, Villa Dawn
and Caribbean Breeze as much as we do!
