  • Description


    I have a Large Home in St. John, US Virgin Islands....I have been here raising my family for over 32 years...I consider it almost Paradise. I do long and short term rentals on premises. I am looking for help to maintain my place and doing light construction, landscaping and gardening. I, Capt Buck, recently lost most of my vision so contacting me via phone is preferred.

  • Help


    My property is on sloping ground and we do small concrete work for footings and walkways..The help is varied and changing. There is an ongoing need for maintenance as things degrade quickly in our tropical climate. Carpentry skills, electrical, plumbing are all helpful, as well as landscaping and general handy person skills.
