Jeff and Tamara Katko love the life they've built for their family of four in comfortable Perrysburg, Ohio. There's only one thing missing; wintertime sunshine. For that, they're heading to the U.S. Virgin Islands in search of a vacation home that's sure to deliver. They'd like a two or three bedroom, two bathroom condo that's fully furnished, with a nice patio or deck, and that is within walking distance to a beach. If they could score an actual water view, they'd be delighted. Their budget is $350,000 - $450,000, which actually won't go a very long way in St. Croix, so this could be tough. Sales Associate Kerry Waldo is ready for the challenge. The first place she shows them is listed for $379,000. It has three bedrooms and two large decks, but is far from the beach. The second condo, listed at $460,000, is just steps from the sand, but only has two bedrooms, which means the Katko boys would have to share a room. The third condo also has just two bedrooms, and it's not close to the beach, but it's part of a lush golf course resort, and is listed for the more comfortable price of $350,000. What are Jeff and Tamara willing to compromise on? Walking distance to the beach? A third bedroom? Or price? Find out as House Hunters International travels to tropical St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
