Eric Lambert is the owner and builder of Blue Aweigh Cottage. He and Paula Lambert purchased the property (land) in 1980 and built their own home. Then in 1992 built a cottage for Paula's parents to retire in.
Hurricane Marilyn blew it all down in September 1995. Including the main house.
We rebuilt our home and finished it in 1997, but did not get around to rebuilding the cottage until 2006.
Paula's parents left the island in November 1995 with no desire to come back (who can blame them). But Eric and Paula have deep roots here and finally were able to rebuild the cottage. It is named Blue Aweigh which is a play on words because it literally BLEW AWAY!
Both homes are constructed of solid concrete now, and were designed to take the whatever the elements dish out!
Our children were born and raised here. Eric is an avid SCUBA diver and fisherman with his best buddy Captain CC Kreglo.
Paula is a bookkeeper and has her office at home. Our children are grown and live in Illinois. So, when we can we are there spending as much time as possible with them and our grand children.
We have been on St John since July 1979, and even though the hurricanes were devastating, we cannot think of anywhere we'd rather live.
Eric built 30 homes on St John and is now busy managing our properties-we also own SAMBA AZUL-a 2 bedroom villa, VRBO #554121-check it out!
We purchased the lot for the view. Period.
The view is amazing, the location is quiet and safe. The cottage is cozy and comfortable-affording sunrise view and the pool deck is a great place to enjoy the sunset.
We always have cooling tradewinds and the night skies are full of stars.
The pool and hot tub are entirely for the use of our guests. The cottage has open beam ceilings, and open spacious floor plan.
When we are here and not travelling we are available to help with any questions, or issues that guests may have. And can address any random stuff that may arise-filling a propane tank for the grill for example.
