It’s always fun to chat with guests staying at Flamboyan Resort.

Recently, we met up with Katie and Mark Cuhlman of Toledo, Ohio.  They were enjoying a colorful Caribbean sunset on the pool deck.

We found out Katie teaches choir to seventh and eighth-grade students and Mark is a financial advisor.

Married for three years, the couple told us their first visit to St. Thomas was on a ten-day cruise in December of 2019.  Ports of call included St. Kitts, St. Lucia, Antigua, and Barbados.

Said Katie, “When we were here last time, we discovered Magens Beach and decided it’s our ‘Happy Place.’ That’s the reason we decided to stay at Flamboyan — it’s so close to Magens.”

Added Mark, “I’m glad we did. We love it here. Everyone is so friendly. The staff is great. Lori and Tracy are awesome.” 

In addition to returning to their ‘Happy Place’ on several occasions during a week-long stay, the Cuhlmans also snorkeled on St. John at Honeymoon Beach.

One of their favorite dining-out experiences was Prime at Paradise Point. 

While on a downtown shopping excursion, the couple also reported how much they enjoyed the local cuisine at Gladys’ Cafe.

Although they regretted getting ready to leave St. Thomas, Mark said, “It’s time to relieve my parents of their babysitting duties.” With a warm smile, he added, “They’re watching Reno, our golden retriever.”

With conviction in their voices, the duo added in unison, “We will be back.”
