Is anyone in the market for a private island? All you need is a mere $25 million and a beautiful one right near Cruz Bay can be yours!
I had an impromptu boat trip with Flyaway Charters yesterday afternoon, and we were cruising around the cays north of St. John. When we passed Thatch Cay, I mentioned how it’s listed for $25 million. Leah, the owner of Flyaway Charters, was surprised and hadn’t heard that, so I figured many of you probably haven’t either. So here are the details…
Thatch Cay is located northwest of Cruz Bay. It is 230 acres and is one of the last private islands in the US Virgin Islands. It is completely undeveloped but has dramatic views and a beautiful rugged coastline.
The island is dotted with Tyre Palms throughout, which is the island’s namesake. The Tyre Palm, also known as a thatch palm, is the only remaining native palm tree in the US Virgin Islands.
(Fun fact: Leah’s son is named Thatch. He will enter preschool at Gifft Hill in the fall.)
The island is currently zoned for residential development, which allows up to six dwellings across three parcels.
I took a little video for you all yesterday. Please check it out:
Maybe if we all chipped in about $1,000, we could buy this together! What do you think??!! 🙂
