Flex MLS describes the hotel as a boutique, eco-friendly beachfront Caribbean resort, coming ready with a turnkey operation that includes a restaurant, bars and spa, and 11 newly constructed rooms complimenting the historic renovation, for a total of 23 guest rooms.

The property sits on a 0.94-acre lot, and treats its guests with the beautiful waterfront views of Frederiksted.
It was not clear why the owners were selling, but it is believed that at least one of the two men had left the island after one was kidnapped at gunpoint and driven to multiple ATMs to withdraw cash. He was later released by the kidnappers.
