IRMA.

Saturday 30

A quick update.

Solar field at Leeward is providing power to the house except for AC.

A team of 6 has been working all week to restore the gardens.

Minor roof repairs to the Great Room start on Monday.

We have decided to rebuild the pergola and that will occur in the next few weeks.

We have received some cancellations and all those deposits have been repaid in full, with just a few administrative hold ups for those that didn't go via VRBO.

Progress is being made on St John, so please be patient before altering travel plans.

Anyone who wishes to roll forward their stay at Leeward are very welcome to do so.

Thursday 14.

Relief efforts on St John are moving up a gear, which is gratifying.

This is not a blog, but an attempt to keep those with bookings at Leeward up to date.

We have had numerous messages of support and we are very appreciative . Thank you all.

On a practical note, we will refund any deposits for those that wish to cancel on the back of Irma.

I am not putting any time limit on that, so please do not feel you have to rush to make that decision.

No one with reservations at Leeward has to adhere to a cancellation policy.

All cancellation policy requirements are voided.

This means we can all wait for as long as possible before deciding whether to travel,or not.

Automated requests for second payments that usually occur 60 days out, should be ignored.

Those additional payments can be made when you arrive.

We will look at discounting those additional payments as a way to stimulate the local economy.

At the moment we don't have access to bank accounts on St John but we will refund from our personal accounts in the meantime.

Tuesday 12

Leeward is home to 6 people on St John at the moment who have had to vacate their own badly damaged homes.

We suffered some tile damage, and lost the pool pavilion roof.

Otherwise the house held up well.

All reservations through October are cancelled.

We will make a call on November when we can assess progress being made on island.

Please be assured that we are doing all we can to assist the aid effort on St John.

Leeward's largely superficial repairs will occur in due time.

To be honest there are more pressing concerns at this time.

As most observers will know, power is the crucial element. Solar and back up generators need to be supported by the grid, and that may take time.

I have asked people to be patient whilst St John is nursed back to health. It will recover, the only question is the length of time.

All rental deposits are covered, so please do not fret about that.

We will honour all such payments.

LEEWARD ST JOHN is a luxury modern villa beautifully situated on the South shore of St. John. Overlooking the tranquil Rendezvous Bay, the house is only an 8 minute drive from Cruz Bay town centre making this the perfect location for your stay in St. John.

Leeward is positioned to capture some of the best views on the island, with all rooms and the deck enjoying fantastic vistas of the south shore of St. John, the Caribbean Sea and St. Croix 40 miles away.

An arched entranceway with an impressive 9 ft solid mahogany door leads you to the spacious kitchen and indoor dining area, with vaulted ceilings and full height windows allowing you to drink in the breathtaking Rendezvous Bay below. With Thermador appliances, breakfast bar and Subzero wine fridge, the kitchen is fully equipped for even the most discerning chef's needs.

The views continue from the vaulted Great Room, which with comfortable seating and 60 inch TV provides the perfect space for relaxing indoors. From here, French doors open onto the expansive coral stone deck. Within the outdoor Pavilion is a shaded seating area as well as a bar and grill, whilst the deck has space for plenty of sun loungers. The south facing aspect ensures you can enjoy the Caribbean sun long into the late afternoon.

The best vistas are perhaps enjoyed from within the inviting 47 ft infinity edge pool, which steps from 4ft to 6 ft in depth, and appears to join the ocean below.

Leeward's four bedrooms are furnished with king sized beds and 42 inch TVs. All are ensuite, which are beautifully tiled and fitted with rain shower heads. The two upper floor bedrooms have covered balconies which create the perfect spot for your morning coffee or a moment of solitude looking out over the bay.

The house has A/C throughout with numerous ceiling fans ensuring comfortable temperatures.

We are environmentally conscious at Leeward, and a large array of solar panels are fitted out of sight beneath the house. Rain water and grey water is captured and used to water the luscious garden, in which we take pride. Power outages do occasionally occur in the USVI, so the house is equipped with state of the art battery back up power.

In summary, Leeward is a beautiful family house with well crafted details and upscale furnishings to ensure your vacation is a memorable one. We and numerous returning guests have enjoyed Leeward for 16 years, and with the recent remodelling we are extremely confident that it will continue to provide premium accommodation for those visiting St. John.
