About Crystal Gillich

After living on the Island of St. John in the 1990's Captain/Caretaker Michael and his wife Crystal spent a year sailing the Caribbean from Florida to Trinidad and to back to the US Virgin Islands on our Catamaran Dancing Dolphin. We are now blessed to be able to call Great St. James our private corner of paradise.

Why Crystal Gillich chose East End

This unique Private Sanctuary gives its visitors an exclusive place to relax away from the crowds of neighboring Islands. Explore nature's beauty, swim and play in her azure waters, Hike and explore historic ruins or just relax on our pristine palm lined beaches. The 5 bedroom villa is the perfect place for a private wedding, quiet retreat, family reunion, or romantic get-away.

What makes this villa unique

Nestled between St. Thomas and St. John, this exclusive property allows you to enjoy as much or as little exposure and participation with the many activities and attractions of the US and British Virgin Islands. Your stay includes one round trip boat ride per day to either Cruz Bay St. John or Red Hook, St. Thomas.

Simply Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the extreme pleasure of staying on Great St James for our most recent family vacation. Hands down the best vacation we have ever taken! Mike and Crystal were the most gracious hosts. The island is so beautiful and offers everything anyone would want to do; from swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, to just simply relaxing. The bungalows were very clean and comfortable. Waking up every morning to the exquisite scenery was breath taking. This place is a retreat for the tired soul needing peace and rejuvenation! We explored everything the island had to offer and greatly appreciated our time there!

Our fabulous getaway!

  • 5 of 5

In 2010 we had the pleasure of staying with hosts Crystal & Michael Gillich aboard their sailing vessel the Dancing Dolphin. The accommodations were spotless and most comfortable and we shared time between the sailboat and a small home in Cruz Bay. They took us to the best & most scenic beaches, and local bars with music. They have been "cruisers" down there so long that their knowledge of the islands is really an asset. They arranged a sailing trip to the British Virgin Islands where we met "Foxy" at his famous bar, and visited the famous Soggy Dollar Bar. Crystal & Mike impressed us with their lobster hunting skills and had plenty of water sports equipment on hand for us to use. It was an unforgettable trip with super fun hosts! Thank you Crystal & Michael for showing us such a great time in your neck of the woods! We can't wait to visit you on this amazing island, as we will surely return!
