Well known & unique surf hotel business with a proven track record, solid reputation & as a result a very good cash flow + growing profits.
Established 6 years ago it has been an instant hit with clients. The business can accommodate 22 clients maximum at any given time, and during the 8 month long high season the occupancy is normally between 15 and 22 people.
Even in 'low season' the business is still profitable. This has been achieved with a superb web presence, excellent customer reviews & a large social media presence. The location of the business means that the water sports we cater to are available year-round.
The business has been set up with all paper work in perfect order and can be easily transferred without hassle to foreigners, even on a tourist visa.
If you want to live the life; surf, kitesurf, windsurf, paddle surf in year round warm weather & water in a stable country AND make very healthy profit this is the business for you. New owners do not have to live in the country full time, or even part time, current owners live full-time in Europe. Excellent management and staff has been in place for several years.
* The price is non negotiable, at the current price this would give a new owner 27% ROI.
** When inquiring about this business, please provide background information on yourself; current residence, past employment or business experience, timeframe etc.

If you are ready to live on St. John and own an established, profitable business, this is the one. (Note that this opportunity will require full time residence on St. John, potential buyers must have already have visited the US Virgin Islands.)
St. John is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. There are very few businesses on St. John equal its size. It is not a hotel, nor a bar/restaurant. It does not take specialized knowledge to run this business.
This business has been very successful, net income for Jan and Feb 2015 is up 30%, and yet there are specific actions that will increase sales even greater.
$1,467,884 in inventory/assets.
The buyer must have available one million in cash or more of their own funds at closing. The NDA will require a statement certifying that the potential buyer has at least the one million available of their own funding at closing, before any confidential information is released.
Seller's financing may be available up to $400,000 and the seller's financing will be secured with the $1,400,000 of assets.
Confidentiality is critical. Since the location has been made publicly known, we cannot release the industry until our NDA is signed.

Christiansted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I., VI
Profitable Automotive Service Center and Tire Warehouse on St. Croix in the United States Virgin Islands.
This is truly a remarkable deal! You can buy this entire business that generates over $100,000 a year in profits for little more than the value of the property, inventory, and other assets. The owners no longer live on St. Croix and would love to see a new owner take over and prosper. With the recently announced economic projects on St. Croix starting in early 2015, this is an incredible opportunity to take advantage of the growing economy and expand the profitability of the company.
Thinking of retiring to the Caribbean, but not ready to completely retire? This is a business that has been running for the last two years with absentee owners (both owners moved to the states for health reasons).
Although the business is doing well, St. Croix is getting ready to undergo a major economic expansion, with a new owner of the major refinery there getting ready to start up production again as well as a new resort that has been approved and funded which will be breaking ground in early 2015. These two projects will provide a major economic boost for a small island of less than 50,000 residents and it will take a more active owner to fully take advantage of this economic growth for the business' advantage.
The business has been running itself with absentee owners for the last 18 months so the new owner can live on the island full or part time, but it would probably be best if an owner was there most of the time. The staff is great and there aren't any problems - its just that any business does better when the owner is active in the business.
The business has a strong repeat customer base and has a great reputation on the island for great service and quality work. Most of our employees have been with us since we opened. With the two major projects starting up, there will be a lot of opportunity for growth and expansion of the customer base as the projects will bring a lot of new people to the island as well as providing a major economic boost for existing businesses.

To arrive on St John it is necessary to come by boat. Located within steps of arrival and departing ferries makes Turquoise Turtle Boutique an easy choice. We are at Wharfside Landing, on the waterfront.
Many items are exclusive such as the original St John Hook Bracelet, Water Candy jewelry, swimwear, sandals, hats, clothing, sunglasses, paintings, even ukuleles!
Turquoise Turtle has front and back doors which open to the beach and nearby restaurants serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Cafe Livin' is in the courtyard out the front door and High Tide is out the back. The good energy of the store is a draw for repeat cliental who stop by each visit to see what is new, pick up something for the beach or just to say hi.
Because the shop is small, approximately 400 sq. ft, there is always a one to one intimacy which makes showcasing goods for sale just part of the visit. Only one person is needed to operate the shop, so it is easy to work yourself and attract talented staff.
We are open 10am to 9pm Monday - Saturday and 11am to 8pm on Sundays. Because all the stores and restaurants in the Wharfside area are on similar times, it gives customers choices and a fun, safe experience.
I have enjoyed meeting people and working the shop for 12 years. I am now late 60s and ready to retire and see what comes up next in life.
The lease and license are transferrable, and suppliers will be happy to maintain exclusivity with the new owner. There are 8 years remaining on the current lease. There is a very comfortable return on sales, making this shop profitable every year. Inventory less jewelry is included in the $125,000 price.

Situated in the heart of Grace Bay, about a block from the beach, Grace Bay Townhomes offers a reasonably priced alternative to the more expensive beachfront resorts, creating a huge market for vacationers who want to experience this high end destination. Built in accordance with stringent building codes, the physical structure is luxurious and very well maintained.
Grace Bay Townhomes is a community owned by a corporation having several partners. All parties desire to sell, primarily for retirement reasons. The corporation was created to generate and protect income. Originally renting to long-term tenants, the owners/managers have created a successful short term vacation rental property over the last three years. The excellent location of the community located in the heart of the tourist district has contributed to a high occupancy and a sustained net income growth.
The vacation rental business is run as a self-catering vacation rental which minimizes guest service requirements for the manager. The excellent reputation earned by the existing managers minimizes start-up risk for the new owners who will benefit from existing systems.
The current owners/managers of the property are available for questions during the transition period and are happy to advise about island logistics and requirements.
Please note that the stated income is for the rental of three homes. One of the townhomes included in the sale is owner occupied.
