About Tom Hay
I am a scientist, grandparent, scuba diver, and proponent of sustainable living. I like finding creative solutions to challenges. My wife and I live in Virginia and like to travel to see old friends and make new ones. I grew up in Albuquerque, went to graduate school in California, and lived in Toronto for 20 years.
Tom Hay purchased this House in 2007
Why Tom Hay chose Oranjestad
We went to Statia on our honeymoon and really loved the place. I found the perfect piece of land to build a house and spent several years creating a unique vacation spot. Four ocean shipping containers carried recycled materials, furniture, fencing, fixtures and tools and then became components of the house. We have electricity, water, internet, and air-conditioned bedrooms and also catch rain water for the plants, recycle grey water for the banana trees, enjoy the natural breezes, and look out for the endangered Antilles iguanas on the property. Our acre-plus has landscaped areas and wild spaces, and some of the best views on the island.
