About Scott Meyer:


I just wanted to attempt a quick message to you even though I realize you've requested a retired couple.  BUT, I've lived in St John, USVI from 2010-2015 and have been back periodically to help some businesses and friends.  I had to come back to NC to renovate/rent my house using airbnb and get it sold in Aug 2020.  I'm in the perfect transitional period until I help open our next gym in November here in WIlmington, NC.  Based on my situation of profiting on the house sale as well as on unemployment, this allows me to help you on the island without issues.  I am a very healthy, fit, 45 yr old who preps his meals, doesn't smoke or drink, runs and exercises daily, am very detail oriented, have the hospitality mindset with guests and property caretaking, and have plentiful references from the island and mainland.  I would be honored to maintain your property.  I would even be happy to fly out there to meet you prior for you to get a better feel.  I do hope you consider a solo caretaker as i've had the experience of actually living thru tropical storms/ hurricanes on st john and the coast of NC.
