About Albion & Ann Sewer

I was born and raised on St. John. As a 5th generation St. Johnian, I am very proud of my heritage and my island home. My wife Ann began teaching on St. John in the early 1970s and retired after 43 years. We have a wealth of knowledge and favorite places to share with our Bluebitch guests to ensure this vacation will be one of your best and most memorable.

Why Albion & Ann Sewer chose Cruz Bay

We began building our home in 2002 out of bluebitch stone, a native stone quarried on St. John. It's been a "labor of love" and a "dream come true" for us!

What makes this estate unique

Our 'All Inclusive Property' includes Airport to Airport Arrival & Departure PickUp, St.John Ferry Boat Arrival & Departure an automatic 4X4 SUV, special discounted rates on day sails for Bluebitch Guests

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bluebitch is beautiful!! And part of the beauty stems from the amount of love that has been put into the craftmanship of this villa. Private beach has been the pre-bedtime stop every night.

Ten days is not enough.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 22 days at Bluebitch. The property has gorgeous views and is well equipped with everything you need for a pleasant stay. The hosts live upstairs. They were friendly, informative and helpful. I can't say too much about what wonderful people Ann and Albion Sewer are. I now view them as life long friends. St. John's is a beautiful island and the people are friendly. Bluebitch is no exception. They have a car available to rent for the duration of the stay which is convenient. A car is a necessity to get around the island. They also provided transportation to and from the airport to the ferry on St. Thomas. All in all, we highly recommend this property. Can't wait to go back!

Just perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Where to begin? My husband and I went to St. John for the first time a few weeks ago and I can't tell you how much we not only loved the island but also loved Bluebitch. The house is so comfortable (and beautiful) and the attention to detail was so appreciated. Albion taught my husband how to line fish- throwing a baited hook and line out without a rod! And they caught fish!. Ann and Albion are perfect hosts and we really appreciated the book in the house where all guests write a synopsis of their stay and the activities and restaurants and was so helpful to read about. We loved this place so much we have already booked for 2018! With drink in hand and the waves breaking, we watched every sunset from the private beach provided with Bluebitch. Heaven! Thank you Ann and Albion for a glorious stay!

The perfect spot for a romantic getaway to St John

  • 5 of 5

BlueBitch was the perfect place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. This property is 110% as advertised. It offers the best of both worlds, romantic/secluded getaway yet minutes away from all that Cruz Bay has to offer and the access roads to the entire island. Try as you may, you will never find more gracious, accommodating hosts than Ann and Albion.

Peace and beauty on St. Johns

  • 5 of 5

Bluebitch offers a very comfortable and beautiful retreat on St. Johns. The pictures are true. Albion and Ann are the ultimate hosts. They want their quests to experience the best of St Johns, and do all they can to make that happen. Tanya picked us up at the airport and expertly chose the best route to make the next ferry to Cruz Bay, where Albion was waiting. Extraordinary hospitality.

Gracious hospitality

  • 5 of 5

From our first email and phone contact before our travel, the owners here (Ann and Albion) provided everything we needed, imagined and unimagined. They gave us travel information, Al met us at the ferry and took us to the local market for provisions, helped us with our luggage, then Ann gave us a thorough tour of the lovely property. The photos on the Internet represent the accommodation perfectly... No disappointments there. The villa is immaculately clean with many small touches and supplies that we could possibly need. We used their car and advise for exploration and day trips to make the most of our stay on this beautiful island. Ann and Al were available for help and to answer questions, but were never "heavy handed" respecting our privacy.

We whole heartedly recommend a booking here.

Owner's Response: Your thoughtful review is most appreciated as we believe future guests will find your experience helpful in deciding if Bluebitch meets their needs. One of our goals is to make our guests' Bluebitch St. John vacation is smooth and hassle free ... from the initial inquiry/booking, to the STJ arrival, for a memorable stay and a feeling this vacation provided rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, exercise, adventure, pictures to share and memories to remember .... until they return to pick up where they left off. Thank you Trenna!

Simply fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We keep coming back to St. John, Bluebitch and its wonderful owners! The house is only a few minutes away (by car) from downtown Cruz Bay and its restaurants. It's a relatively quick drive to get to the series of public beaches (Hawksnest, Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay). The property is well maintained and clean. It has everything for a comfortable stay (washer, dryer, full kitchen, microwave, etc). The private beach is a treat! One cannot wish for a better customer service. The owners, Ann and Albion, are very quick to response to any concerns/questions. We highly recommend this property!
