Patricia (Trish) Rhodes hales from the North Star State Minnesota, no kidding. From early on, always reading about places where Palm Trees just would grow, and not in a pot in a building, I always leaned towards finding a way South. I sailed down to St Croix on a 46 foot Venus Catch rigged sail boat named “Zingara”. Great adventure, took us 9 months to make the trip, of course we stopped at every island on the way for a Pina Colada. This was during the Gulf war time and so the Coast Guard stopped us several times. They were just protecting our borders. Got to St Croix, fell in love with island, and lived aboard “Zingara” in Green Cay Marina for 8 years.
Then we sold the sail boat, and I took up Sport Fishing and am currently on the BOD of the Golden Hook Fishing Club and have been for 13 years. The Golden Hook Fishing Club runs 4 structured tournaments a year and 2 tournaments with St Thomas each year as well as one or two jungle rule spur of the moment tournaments. We just love fishing! The Golden Hook web page is fishstx.com.
Going into Real Estate in 1994 on St Croix was a challenge. This is a wonderful island with roads mostly laid out by the Danes who never laid eyes on the island. They were pretty smart though. When driving our main streets, you will see some of our streets signs are still written in Danish. The other streets may or may not be marked, it is kind of like a Treasure Hunt selling Real Estate in the Islands. I just love it!
Now Calabash Real Estate is my happy home. I hope you will consider me, Trish Rhodes when looking for your new happy home, or selling the place in Paradise that you so loved, here on St Croix.
P.S. Don’t forget to wear sun screen!
