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 Contant & Contant Farms

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.

Incredible trip! Survived Hurricane Irma because of Ann and Albion at Bluebitch St John!

  • 5 of 5

After 5 delightful days, Hurricane Irma directly hit St John. This storm's fury decimated the island- with few exceptions, it suffered near total devastation. But Bluebitch St John is the manifestation of the love and dedication of Ann and Albion. Made by their skilled and loving hands, this home SAVED OUR LIVES. In the aftermath, we all worked together to clear rubble-nearly everything other than the 1 foot thick bluebitch stone walls and blue roof was lost- except our lives. The people of St. John are amazingly resilient. With time and hard work, they will one day rebuild. Because of Bluebitch St John , I have my life and new lifelong friends- The "things" were ALL gone within hours- yet caring, companionship, memories, and fortitude are immeasurably constant. Unable to leave the island for almost a week after Irma, we all worked to begin to nurture the wounds of Bluebitch Saint John. When we were finally able to hastily depart on a refugee boat to Puerto Rico, it was painful to leave. During our 12 days on St John, we not only swam with turtles, snorkelled, and visited the delightful and historic sites- we had a shared tragedy that brought all together as one on the island. After Irma, we shared relief, hugs, tears... then water and food - and a glimmer of hope. Please remember St John , all of the US Virgin Islands and all the islands affected in the Caribbean in your prayers and in your future plans. They are rebuilding their lives- but we all need to help. They have shared their beautiful island with visitors for many, many years- it is time for us to share our gratitude and certainly our time and assets to help them. May God Bless Bluebitch St John's family and the people of the islands.

Owner's Response: Cheryl & Domonic, it has been our pleasure to meet you and an honor to have shared our home with you pre-Irma. Unfortunately we also shared Irma's historic visit to St. John. There aren't words to express our gratitude & appreciation for all you have done for us from securing what valuables & other items that could be saved, to cleaning up the MASSIVE amount of debris inside Bluebitch, to clearing the road of trees, roofs, sharp sheets of galvanize roofing material to preparing our first, post-Irma delightful & uplifting steak, egg & fruit breakfast. More than that you have provided us with a life-line so we could be in contact with our children, sisters, family, friends and our Bluebitch extended family in the States by giving us your Verizon cell phone to use as we wait for AT&T to be restored. This life-line phone has given us some peace of mind and made our post-Irma life easier. Your phone is our most cherished possession, along with our stone walls & partial roof. Today is better than yesterday and tomorrow will be better than today. Thanks for continuing to be there for us as you wait in Puerto Rico to return to Ohio after planning your "surprise" vacation ... a once in a lifetime surprise vacation!

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bluebitch for 8 nights in May and had an unbelievable time. This was our 6th trip to St.John (our 40th wedding anniversary) and our 3rd with Ann and Albion. We visit Ann and Albion @ Bluebitch every two years and that will continue hopefully for a long time! We will not stay anywhere on the island except Bluebitch. Not only is Bluebitch paradise, but Ann and Albion have truly become friends. They are as beautiful as Bluebitch!

The new all inclusive option is great! It took the hassle out of getting a from/to STT to Red Hook and then the ferry over to St.John. As always the beach area is truly special. We snorkled right off the Bluebitch beach! Sunsets are spectacular from waterfront pier built by Albion. Our favorite though is just grilling, having a few drinks and watching the boats and the sunset from the deck after a day at the many spectacular beaches.

We loved Joe's Rum Hut ($3 happy hour, any drink), Beach Bar, Lime Inn. I think we did Happy Hour 5 or 6 nights on our way home from the beach!

We really enjoyed our private boat trip with Cleve ( Local Flavor Charters) to the BVI'S. Cleve not only took us to several special places ( Diamond reef, Sandy Spit, Soggy Dollar, Foxy's) he provided a history lesson of the islands along the way. It was a day we will never forget.

Thanks to Carlo and Rosa for taking good care of us during our stay. It was great to see Sanka with his new buddy Hey Guy.

We'll see you guys on our next visit. Thank you for being YOU!

Wonderful

We stayed 8 nights, and could have stayed longer. Ann and Albion are very gracious hosts. Bluebitch has everything you need, especially the view, and your private beach for sunsets.

Sincerely,

Fred & Debbie

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
