A (bargain?) Peter Bay villa auction

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Get out your checkbook and mark June 13 on your calendar. That’s the auction date for Villa Rivendell in Peter Bay.

And you might get the buy of a lifetime. Well, relatively speaking.

This villa’s been on the market for north of $6 million. It appears bidding starts at $2.5 million.

We’ve written about Rivendell before. It’s at the top of our list of all the villas we’ve been in and we’ve been in a lot of them. It’s our “if we win the lottery” villa. (Unfortunately we haven’t, so you won’t compete against us.)

It rents for as much as $2,500 A NIGHT, and it rents well. That’s what a villa with a walk to the beach goes for in Peter Bay.

We shot video of it several years ago, and a newer video has since been shot since a 2012 renovation.

Here’s some auction information. Good luck.

You’ll need caretakers, so give us a call.

St. John’s King of Drones

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Meet Jason Hubert, the guy who has been shooting much of the awesome drone videos of St. John you’ve been seeing.

If you’re a longtime OSJ reader, you actually met Jason about six years ago, when he moved to St. John from Baltimore for a long break before law school.

Since then, Jason returned to DC to get his law degree and is now back on St. John preparing to take the Virgin Islands Bar this summer.

He has also mastered the art of the drone, and is shooting charter boats, villas, weddings and anything else you can think of. Click here if you have a project for him.

Shooting drone video is not easy. “I waited until I had about 100 hours of flight time before I took it over the water,” Jason says, “and I still get nervous every time.”

Check out the amazing sample of Jason’s St. John drone videos, below…

All Aboard for the Virgin Islands (1937)

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Here’s a fun British tourism video from 1937 for the Virgin Islands, featuring St. Thomas.

Bluebird’s Castle is “the principle hotel, as modern as the other fellow’s motor car and run by the government.”

“In this Earthly paradise, one of the greatest joys is bathing. In winter as well as summer – and that’s the long and the short of it.”
