Island Profiles: St. John Resident Launches New Business

Mary Bartolucci, a longtime St. John resident, has a launched new property management business.

St. John is filled with so many interesting people. I’ve received a lot of emails suggesting that I start to profile some of our residents, and I think that’s a fabulous idea. Today I’m starting with Mary Bartolucci, a 27-year resident who has launched a great new business.

Many of you have likely heard Mary’s name before or perhaps you’ve seen her work. Mary owned the highly successful business Island Style Weddings for 20 years before selling it in 2022. During that time, Mary planned more than 2,000 weddings, and her work has been featured in numerous popular publications including Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, and more.

The weddings Mary created were simply spectacular from the design and decor to the lighting and layout, and that’s a credit to her vision, personable service, and attention to detail. Mary is taking those attributes and applying them to her newest business venture – MCB Management.

MCB Management offers complete property management services, including maintenance, housekeeping, pool service, bookings and more. Prior to living in St. John, Mary spent 17 years working in hotels as a director of sales and marketing. Her background in hotel management and wedding planning is sure to make MCB Management a success.

Mary currently manages The Maho Bay House, a stunning four-bedroom villa that overlooks the sparkling waters of Maho Bay on St. John’s North Shore. She put her personal touch on the villa, adding local artwork, new decor, and more.

Mary is looking to add a handful of villas to her portfolio. She plans to only manage a small number of homes, so each owner and guest can continue to receive her personalized attention. Mary believes in quality over quantity. Some of the services Mary offers include:

  • Booking coordination
  • Provision management
  • Enhancements to guest experience
  • Guest activities & service options
  • Targeted & collaborative marketing, including refresh and renew (new photos, branded gifts, etc.)

Whether you prioritize attentive guest experiences, efficient booking coordination, or comprehensive marketing strategies, Mary, along with MCB Management, is committed to aligning its services with your goals.
