Our condo, located on the beautiful unspoiled north shore, is just 15 minutes from the airport, although it seems much further, is by no means your typical Caribbean beach front condo. First of all you are 50 feet from the surf! The sound is incredible, especially while lying in bed. This is by far the best unit in the complex because of the location, view, size, and it was just fully remodeled and furnished.
Next, all but two of the 32 units there are lived in year round by it's inhabitants. All the neighbors know each other and are very friendly. Most will realize you are staying in our place, so don?t be shy asking for directions or a beer. This is not a resort, but absolutely feels like a sanctuary or retreat. There are wild chickens and roosters, as well as the occasional iguana running around. Well kept but not manicured, nothing feels forced.
The beach, 50 feet from our living room, is usually deserted, as everyone living there in Dorothea is at work. If there happens to be a horse on the beach or in the water don’t worry, sometimes they break out to go for a swim! If you want to hike to another beautiful quiet, deserted beach where there are no buildings or anything but white sand, you can hike to Neltjeberg (pr. nelteeberg). It’s a little less than a half a mile walk on a spectacular forest trail that includes an ocean cliff section directly adjacent to the property. It’s a local’s favorite, deserted most weekdays. If you want something more traditional, world famous Megan’s Bay is only two bays over, about a 7 minute drive from Dorothea. There are 53 other public beaches. Typical this is not.
It’s a small island so everything is close, including the ferries to St John, Tortolla, Virgin Gorda and many others. Day trips are easy and inexpensive
.Owning this exact condo was Dori?s dream before ever meeting me in Connecticut, so after we got together I bought it for us. I now understand why it was her dream and I think you will too.
Dori and I live in Connecticut where we each have businesses. Dori is a psychotherapist in private practice in West Hartford and I have a mortgage company in Farmington. In fact, I recently received my lending license from the Virgin Islands so I can work as well as vacation in Saint Thomas now. We were recently married right on the beach in front of the condo!
