About Susan Armstrong

My husband and I have been visiting the Caribbean for over 25 years. We discovered St. Croix on a trip in 1990 and fell in love. We have owned a home on this island since 2007 and plan as many trips as possible from our home outside Boston. We plan to eventually retire to St. Croix, but in the mean time choose to share our home with family, friends and guests who will care for and enjoy our home.

Susan Armstrong purchased this villa in 2015

Why Susan Armstrong chose Estate Shoys

We always wanted a home in the gated community of Shoys. Our second pre-requisite was to have views of the Caribbean. When we stepped into the villa we knew it was THE ONE! We named her Serendipity because we felt it was our good fortune to find her. The furnishings are elegant and the decor is exquisite. I plan on picking up music again on the beautiful grand piano. We know that this is the home of our dreams.

What makes this villa unique

Love to entertain? Our villa has a great outdoor lanai, pool with table and chairs, outdoor kitchen, and ample lounge chairs so you can relax in the sun or shade. Play the piano? Play your favorite songs on our grand piano in the great room. Want to relax? Grab your favorite book and lounge by the pool sipping a lemonade (or beverage of your choice) and experience the soft breezes, warm sunshine and spectacular views. Love the Beach? Shoys beach is less than 1/2 mile from our home. Grab a chair and your towel and head down for a swim and some sun. Like to work out? Walk or run the hills and valleys in the gated Shoys neighborhood or walk over to the Buccaneer Hotel to enjoy their walking/running trail through the golf course and along the water.

Private Boat with Captain Roger

  • 5 of 5

We were married on the island over our trip and saved the private boat ride for our last night in the island. Roger was so awesome! We chose the sunset cruise and left at 4, he brought drinks and snorkel gear, even offered to take us fishing while we were out. We arrived to a private Buck Island, it was incredible being alone in such a beautiful place. We snorkeled around the rocks on the NW side of the beach and saw so many beautiful fish and what could be easily described as a conch shell graveyard. We hiked along the beach before heading back to the boat for a beer and went to float in the sand for awhile. As Roger boarded the boat we swam out for a refill, pool noodles and rum shots! We had the best time chatting with him, learning about his life while floating with our beers. The sunset was never-ending, I felt like we were there for hours without the sun setting an inch....then it disappeared. Heading back to the dock we rode up front with our legs over the edge, music blaring, having the litteral time of our lives. Really enjoying some let loose time with my new husband in a magical place, with a few drinks, and an awesome Capitan! Easily one of the best nights of our life. Thank you so much for such a fun, beautiful and amazing memory!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that we could accommodate your family at our villa for your special island wedding. I know you had some special gatherings by the pool looking out at the Caribbean. We try to make our guest's visit memorable and the boat trip to Buck Island is often the top on the list. So pleased that you and your husband could enjoy this as a special time for just the two of you. Come back and visit for your anniversary!

2016 vacation break from snow and cold.

  • 5 of 5

The property is everything described and you must be there to experience the beauty of the gardens around the house as well as inside with openness of the rooms detailed with many amenities . The view from the outside deck and pool area of the marina below and off into the Caribbean sea is spectacular . An afternoon flew by relaxing by the pool and watching numerous power and sail boats float off into the sea. The afternoon sailing out to Buck Island was a special trip to enjoy the water , beaches and other vacationers . The property is walking distance to an excellent beach and walking trail thru the area . Had a great time and will have to plan a return trip . Thanks for the opportunity to stay and enjoy .

Owner's Response: Our goal is to make your trip to St. Croix memorable. We planted palms, ficus, xiora, bougainvillea, flamboyants and other lovely tropical plants around the property to offer our guests beauty and privacy. I love going out to my gardens to cut fresh flowers to arrange in the villa. Relaxing by the pool is so nice after a fun day at the beach. We are so glad that you enjoyed your trip. Come visit again. Susan
