Raf is a native St. Johnian, who grew up in the quiet village of Coral Bay. Thia came to live on St. John in the early 90's and eventually they met and fell in love. After pursuing careers in California for fourteen years, they returned to their beloved island with their two daughters, Missy and Allegra, in order for their children to be closer to their grandparents and to grow up in the wonderful community and natural environment that St. John offers.
Buying property on St. John allowed us to pursue our dream of returning to St. John with our children. It took us almost 4 years to bring that dream to fruition, and renting the house to travelers helped us save the funds necessary for the move. It's been great fun to help travelers with accommodations, while lending a hand with travel advice and suggestions for what to do on the island.
Currently the Muilenburgs are living in Florida part-time and are on St. John whenever possible.
