About Albion & Ann Sewer

I was born and raised on St. John. As a 5th generation St. Johnian, I am very proud of my heritage and my island home. My wife Ann began teaching on St. John in the early 1970s and retired after 43 years. We have a wealth of knowledge and favorite places to share with our Bluebitch guests to ensure this vacation will be one of your best and most memorable.

Why Albion & Ann Sewer chose Cruz Bay

We began building our home in 2002 out of bluebitch stone, a native stone quarried on St. John. It's been a "labor of love" and a "dream come true" for us!

What makes this estate unique

Our 'All Inclusive Property' includes Airport to Airport Arrival & Departure PickUp, St.John Ferry Boat Arrival & Departure an automatic 4X4 SUV, special discounted rates on day sails for Bluebitch Guests

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bluebitch is beautiful!! And part of the beauty stems from the amount of love that has been put into the craftmanship of this villa. Private beach has been the pre-bedtime stop every night.

Ten days is not enough.

Better Than Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh year in a row staying at the Bluebitch and it was our best vacation so far.

Ann and Albion make small changes every year to make it better. Maybe a new lamp, new furniture in the living room or new chairs on the terrace deck but the BB always feel like returning home. You feel so comfortable there and relaxed.

A big change would be the outdoor spaces. The BB always had a park like feeling but with the work of Carlo, the grounds keeper, the grounds seem more spacious with more unobstructed views of the ocean.

St. John is a special place but so are the people of St. John. They are always very friendly and always ready to give a smile to make you feel at home.

Next year will be number eight and I know it will be the best stay at the BB ever.

Thank You Ann & Albion for a great vacation, Al & Deb

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 22 days at Bluebitch. The property has gorgeous views and is well equipped with everything you need for a pleasant stay. The hosts live upstairs. They were friendly, informative and helpful. I can't say too much about what wonderful people Ann and Albion Sewer are. I now view them as life long friends. St. John's is a beautiful island and the people are friendly. Bluebitch is no exception. They have a car available to rent for the duration of the stay which is convenient. A car is a necessity to get around the island. They also provided transportation to and from the airport to the ferry on St. Thomas. All in all, we highly recommend this property. Can't wait to go back!

Just perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Where to begin? My husband and I went to St. John for the first time a few weeks ago and I can't tell you how much we not only loved the island but also loved Bluebitch. The house is so comfortable (and beautiful) and the attention to detail was so appreciated. Albion taught my husband how to line fish- throwing a baited hook and line out without a rod! And they caught fish!. Ann and Albion are perfect hosts and we really appreciated the book in the house where all guests write a synopsis of their stay and the activities and restaurants and was so helpful to read about. We loved this place so much we have already booked for 2018! With drink in hand and the waves breaking, we watched every sunset from the private beach provided with Bluebitch. Heaven! Thank you Ann and Albion for a glorious stay!

The perfect spot for a romantic getaway to St John

  • 5 of 5

BlueBitch was the perfect place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. This property is 110% as advertised. It offers the best of both worlds, romantic/secluded getaway yet minutes away from all that Cruz Bay has to offer and the access roads to the entire island. Try as you may, you will never find more gracious, accommodating hosts than Ann and Albion.
