About Crandall on St John - Vacation Rental Business

We (Laurie & Craig Crandall) came to St. John in 1982 with a vision of starting a business. I decided on a gift shop catering to boaters and the island folk. Tamarind Tilles. Tamarind for the beautiful Tamarind trees here on St John and Tillie for a large wooden doll that my father had carved out of wood for me. I worked for Gallows Point in bookkeeping for a year before my parents (Maurice and Beverly Poulin), Maurice, known as Mr. Moe, moved to St. John and started developing. Lavender Hill, Century Hill, Wharfside Village, mini storage units, the islands only Dry Cleaners, among other developments in St. John.

We lived and managed Century Hill Estates with my family until leaving the island in 1994 for a better education for our two girls. Century Hill Estates went to long-term renters during our absence. In 2007, Craig and I and our youngest daughter moved back home (St John) when we started Crandall on St John property management and vacation rentals.

Today, Craig and I work together with the help of a great team in this family-owned business while our daughter pursued her career as a massage therapist to many tourists as well as locals. Crandall on St John continues to grow the business, now serving more than 25 condos at Grande Bay Resort and a few other properties on St John. We work with other property managers, so if we don’t have what you want, we will find the perfect rental for you.

Thank you for choosing Crandall on St. John as your destination for your upcoming vacation, business, or wedding endeavors. We look forward to seeing you here on the beautiful island of St John USVI.

Kind regards!

Craig and Laurie Crandall
