About Lee Morris

Lee grew up in Rhode Island, moved to California after marrying Bill Morris, lived in Germany 2 yrs, and England 7 yrs. After raising their 3 children in Southern california, they moved to beautiful, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. She loves to make music - singing and playing her grand piano and at times, the organ at her church. She still works full time and loves it, and can't imagine ever being retired! She belongs to several groups, Secretary in the St. John Yacht Club, singing with the St. John Singers, and her little children's picture books came out last year! The title is: 'Marshmellow Little Cloud Discovers an Island.' (St. John, of course.) And 'Marshmellow Little Cloud Discovers England.' And her husband Bill has written a terrific children's math book 'A Math Primer With Emphasis on Fractions And Primes.' You can get them from her, which she will autograph with the child's name, and a little message to the child. She is also a proud member of the MAM's Group! Meaning 'Middle Age Majorettes'. We practice a dance routine and march in the 4th of July parade, St Patrick's Day parade and a Christmas Parade - in interesting costumes! Come on out and enjoy our beautiful parades! She likes to work out and exercise.

Lee Morris purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Lee Morris chose Cruz Bay

We bought our land in 1991, then moved here permanently in 1994, and built our beautiful home. Bill was an avid sailor, and the beauty, scenery and sailing here are spectacular! So, why NOT move here? Bill had many many years of wonderful sailing, up and down the island chains and delivering boats to and from the states. And we LOVE our spectacular 180 degree view! Sunsets every night, islands abound all around, boats going back and forth - it's never ending sight!

What makes this apartment unique

We love the quiet, peacefulness and beauty of the area! St. Thomas is across the Pillsbury Sound, with lots and lots of islands all around in the beautiful shimmering blue sea! Sail boats, motor boats, fishing boats, ferries and car barges all going about their business in the Sound. The sun sets over St. Thomas and is gorgeous every night! We see lots of rainbows too. We have 180 degree views. FANTASTIC! Sunsets, rainbows - the whole works! (We often see the 'Green Flash' too, when the air is really clear!) I'll show you how to see it!! Also our house is at the END of the road! No cars or vehicles whizzing by!!

Incredible Views and Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both of Lee's units over the holidays and we cannot say enough good things about her or the property. Everything was clean, kitchen stocked with everything you need to prepare your own meals if you want. She even provided coolers and beach chairs! We really loved the large screened in porches. Note: You will definitely need a car as she lives on a large hill over looking Cruz Bay. She is a wonderful lady and we loved hearing her play the piano when we were coming and going. We have already planned our next trip and we definitely will be staying with her again. Don't pass her up!

Great Place to Stay While in St. John!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a pleasant stay (my teenage daughter, her best friend, and I). We rented both units, and had more than enough room and amenities. You made us feel very welcome, even before we arrived. You were prompt in answering my questions and concerns, so when we came, we were ready to hit the ground, running (and swimming, snorkeling, sightseeing, etc.). The story of how your place came to be, and your support for our military personnel is inspiring, and I thank you for that. The girls adored Gigi, and vice versa. She was full of love, the whole time we were there, and added to our enjoyment. On behalf of the three of us, thank you so much for a memorable stay! Looking forward to our next visit, hopefully very soon, and seeing God's wonderful creation above and below sea level at St. John.

My fabulous week at Sugar Bird Dreams

  • 5 of 5

I spent a wonderful week at Lee Morris's Sugar Bird Dreams from 1/22-1/29/13. The studio was absolutely perfect, clean, comfortable, safe, just as advertised. There is a beautiful view overlooking the town of Cruz Bay and over towards St. Thomas. Reaching Lee's home is very easy from town (less than 5 minute drive), no switchbacks and the home is gated as well. More than this, Lee is a genuine, lovely hostess with a heart of gold. She invited me out one night and then another night we had wine and pizza in her home with lovely friends as she played her piano and sang for us. Lee's little rescue dog Gigi was delightful, she would come visit everyday. Being home just a week, I miss the island of St. John and it's wonderful people. Please don't think twice about renting either Sugar Bird Nest or Dreams or both, you will not be disappointed, Lee's hospitality is unmatched. I hope to return soon :)

A little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Sugar Bird Nest is a wonderful place & Lee is a terrific host. Everything we could think of was available including beach chairs & coolers. The apartment is lovely and fully equipped. The view is amazing. Perfect for a small family, close to everything including 2 grocery stores and the car ferry docks. We will be back!

From the minute I arrived at Sugar Bird Nest you made me feel so at home. If you are looking for a quiet, surreal place to be then this is the place. I told Lee more than once that she should just rent me her apartment on a permanent basis and I would move right in. I enjoyed Gigi coming down every morning to see if I was up and loved the fact that she liked to cuddle on the couch with me until I was ready to get up. It was so much fun on the last night we were there when we sat on your patio with Livy & Patty and had our "girl time". And your hot tub....OH MY.....I tried out all the seats.....just so I could say I sat where Kenny Chesney was.....since it used to be his hot tub! (hehe). Lee, I cannot wait to come back to visit you again but until then please know that you are in this Indiana girls thoughts and I Love You!! Thank you for a very memorable stay at your Sugar Bird Nest.

We had such a great time staying at Sugar Bird Nest over the 4th of July holiday! Lee took such good care of us and we had everything we needed for a fabulous family vacation. It was fun to wake up each day and give the sugar birds their morning sugar. I never saw so many birds race over to get their sugar fix! The large apt. patio has a partial view of the ocean but we were welcomed upstairs to enjoy her panoramic full view of St. Thomas and Cruz Bay! We loved to grill on the patio or call Ronnie's Pizza for delivery. The gated entry is a nice feature to have too and sitting in the hot tub was great after a long day of snorkeling. Plus Lee is a fabulous piano player and singer so we were totally entertained while watching the beautiful sunset.

Lee also has the cutest little dog named Gigi and our boys loved playing with her. You can't beat the view and the price and so close to Starfish Market, restaurants and shopping. I highly recommend Sugar Bird Nest but secretly don't want you to know about this hidden gem on the top of the hill so it won't get booked up the week I want to return!! Oh well, I'll have to take my chances . . .
