David wins the prize for the first guest at Calichi at Picture Point.  While the Tower Villa is still not ready for prime time, we had a bunch of activity on the site getting it ready for glamping.  Here’s what it looked like on Thursday.

With a strong effort from the entire crew, we got most of our goals accomplished before David’s visit.   Here’s a glimpse at what the Tower Villa looks like today, with more to come in the near future!

Love the range hood!

We were missing a piece from the pendant dining area light, but we found it on Saturday!  Trust me, it’s beautiful.

The living area features a large, comfortable couch, along with a 55″, flatscreen TV.  The grey pieces on the right of the photo are planters and will be going outside!  IMG_7525

I think I could get used to this setting.

And to close out the week, a few Cami shots and a shot of one of the butterflies that have been all over the island for the past few weeks!

This is the bougainvillea that lived at the bottom of our pool for 60 days after the storms. Then, it survived for a month on the side of a hill where I tossed it after getting it out of the pool.  We finally planted it.  What a survivor!

Have a great week everyone!

  2. Oh, that view! Your beautiful pictures keep me going through a rather rough time here in Indiana. We go to St. John at least once a year and Calichi is now on my list must-stay-there list 🙂 I love the Coral Bay side of the island. This year, it looks like we won’t make it, as we’re helping our 27-year-old daughter get back to health after being diagnosed with brain cancer (incurable, but treatable). Next year, we will celebrate getting through this and bring both daughters and sons-in-law with us! I am looking at my daughter’s situation much like the island’s recovery from two Cat 5 hurricanes: It’s devastating, it changes things, but it can’t change the beauty and the view. I cannot wait to see Calichi in person some day!

    I love to watch this project come together and precious little Cami grow up! It just warms my heart!
