About Rob Low

Im from La Jolla California where after high school I move to Idaho where I attended Boise State University majoring in art metals. I worked in the jewelry industry as a designer/goldsmith in Boise, Twin Falls and Ketchum Idaho. The store in Ketchum 'Gem Expose' also had a store in St. Croix. In 1985 I went to work at Gem Expose in St. Croix and in 1989 purchased The Gold Shop.

Several years later renaming the store Nelthropp & Low Diamonds and Fine Jewelry. located in Christiansted. In 2001 I purchased the waterfront lot where I built Island Time Villa as a vacation rental.

Then in 2009 I opened up the old Comanche Mill on the Christiansted Boardwalk as a bar. I have always enjoyed being on the water so I finally realized my dream to own a catamaran and in 2010 I purchased a 43' Leopard catamaran SV Iditarum which we charter out for day sails and multi day trips to the British Virgin Islands.

Rob Low purchased this villa in 2001

What a place. They have thought of everything. What a great design for two couples or a couple with kids. Two great bedroom/bath suites, one at each end, living and dining in the middle, all with direct access out to the pool patio, all with spectacular view. Unreal design and siting. Every single thing you could want is already in place in the kitchen, laundry room, at the pool, etc. Beach chairs, pool equipment, etc. Makes you feel like you're at home. A fantastic huge new Kitchenaid propane grill plumbed into the house gas system so you don't run out because the guest before you drained it down. We can't say enough good things about it. Oh yes, can't forget the site, and the view. For long days just sitting at poolside or in the pool, there's always someone coming or going in Teague Bay, as it is the site of the St. Croix yacht club. Many boats at dock or moored, or just stopping in. Then there's the kids' group with the Optima sailing club and the afternoon regatta right off the back yard. Unreal. If you like the East End (who doesn't?) you will love this house for a small group or two couples. We can't wait to go back.

Private Villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This Villa has it all, the private pool, kitchen, location and view! The property is nice and private, yet just minutes from everything in Christiansted. The view from this Villa cannot be beat, you don't only feel as if you are in paradise, YOU ARE!!!!!! I love this Villa so much, I came back a second time with friends, and they did not want to leave. I will be back again very soon!

Stunning view and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfectly located to provide a sense of seclusion yet provides easy access to Christiansted, evening dining, shopping and everything you need. The view looking out over the bay and toward Buck Island is spectacular every day. The sun sets across the bay over the mountain and every evening is a different array of color and amazement. It is the perfect Villa if your intent is to disconnect and relax. It never disappoints. I have recommended Island Time to many friends but hope they never go so it is always available when we want to visit.

Lovely views but no beach

  • 4 of 5

We spent a nice week at Island Time in February. It was a great winter get-away with beautiful weather in St Croix. The views of the sea and Buck Island are beautiful as described. The pool and lanai were a perfect spot to enjoy those views. The house is perfect design for two couples to share. With a little TLC the house could be lovely.

My reason for not rating 5 stars is the location description is a bit misleading. The property is waterfront but not on a beach. There is a line of tress at the water's edge and not a sandy beach as shown in the photo captioned "view of Buck Island from our beach."

Excellent Villa! Pool, View and Location. Well stocked (many villa we have stayed didn't have basics of salt pepper, coffee filters) and appointed. Like that it wasn't bare of small items. We used some and left more. This is so much better than having to buy every little thing. We will rent again!

Thank Rob!

Incredible Island Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Island Time for an anniversary vacation. This was our first visit to St. Croix and Island Time Villa was perfect for the relaxing-laid-back vacation we were looking for.

The owners were very pleasant to deal with and the house was everything we had hoped for and more. The pictures do not do the villa justice. Watching the sunset from the patio has to be experienced. The Villa is very safe and private, with its own private/gated driveway off of the main road, but it is close enough to restaurants and other activities. There is a BBQ place, "Good Spirits", less than a mile from the house and we went there almost every day for food/happy hour drinks.

My wife and I hated to leave this paradise but we will definetely be back one day. Thanks again to the owners for making it such an incredible vacation.
