I am a small business owner and I designed, built, and now manage our family villa, AcquaBlu. The M. family has been in love with St. John for over 50 years. Dale has been coming to the Virgin Islands since the days of the first Pan Am service in the 1960's. Janet has been coming to St. John since the early eighties. Now St. John has grown up, but it is still pristine since 3/4 of the island is US National Park. We built our first house on Gifft Hill in 1989. We used it as a rental house and traveled back and forth between Connecticut and St. John. Our daughter Megan grew up between our two worlds. Finally in 1995 we decided to move down here permanently. AcquaBlu is our second St. John home, completed in 2005. We lived there for several years before deciding to rent her and travel the world.
