Over 10 years on St. John — Cimmaron St. John — our beginnings and today
Cimmaron St. John is a leader in St. John villa management companies based primarily upon our unique and comprehensive expertise gained as a General Contractor providing high quality general construction and building services throughout St. John. Over a ten year period, Cimmaron Builders, Inc. achieved a stellar reputation for impeccable service and expert home renovations.
David Conro and Robin Eldridge Conro were the principles of Cimmaron Builders, Inc. and are the founders and owners of Cimmaron Property Management, Inc. d/b/a Cimmaron St. John.
While engaged in the building construction business in the early to mid 2000’s, Dave and Robin observed thatmany of the vacation rental properties that they were providing general contracting services for werein continuous and varing stages of disrepair. It became apparent that the underlying cause of this was due to a general lack of routine and preventative maintenanceby the various property managers/booking agents who were representingproperties on St. John. It did not take long to realize that there wassignificant need for a quality, professionalproperty management and maintenance service on St. John. In response to this need to assist homeowners in preserving their valuable assets and to enable those villas in the short-term rental market to compete in this expandingmarket, Dave and Robin formed Cimmaron Property Management in early 2004. The original goal was to provide professional propertymanagement, maintenance andfinancialservices to property owners on St. John working toinsure that properties under our management were the best maintained on St. John and that visitors staying in our managed villas would look forward to their return visit. We have succeeded far beyond our original expectations!
As the ‘coconut telegraph’ on St. John spread the word that there was a professional property management alternative now available,Cimmaron Property Managementgrew to a point where Dave and Robinmade the decision in early 2009todiscontinue the successful general contracting side of their business in orderto focus exclusively on full-timepropertymanagement.Whether St. Johnhomes are in short or long term rentalornot in the rentalmarket at all, today Cimmaron Property Management, Inc. is the only professional property managementcompany on St. John offering a variety ofmaintenance and management services to property owners 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you are a St. John homeowner (or a ‘wanna be’ St. John homeowner), go to www.cimmaronpropertymanagement.com for more information on our full property management services. Our owners find that, once theirproperty is under management with Cimmaron,when theycome to St. John for a visit they will have to ‘go to the beach’ or ‘relax and enjoy’ their vacation home instead of working to fix or repair problemsat the property.
In mid-2010 Cimmaron began the process to expand its successful property management business to include vacation villa rental services for our managed properties. We have now developed a dynamic internet based reservation system which will be the vehicle to promote and sell our managed vacation villas, homesand condoson St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, to travelers worldwide.

WHAT THE OWNERS OF YOUR RENTAL PROPERTY ARE SAYINGABOUT CIMMARON
“David and Robin — and their entire team — are absolutely superb! In our experience they offer outstanding services and are always willing and able to help problem solve any of our toughest issues. We have a large and complicated property that gets lots of use (and sometimes abuse) and they are always on top of the issues no matter what time of day or night. Our rental guests get quick, and pleasant, responses to their issues. We are delighted to have “found” them.”
“I hired Cimmaron (Dave & Robin Conro) as the property manager for our St. John villa in October of 2006. As on off-island villa owner who books my property by myself, I needed an on-island management company who could accomplish 3 critical tasks for me: keep my property well-maintained and spotlessly clean; keep my guests happy with a very hospitable and helpful “meet & greet” and prompt response to any problems that may arise; pay local bills and email me clear, timely accounting statements. David and Robin accomplish these 3 tasks superbly, with great attention to detail, good communication, and the requisite amount of grace and humor when necessary. Thank you not only to David and Robin but also their great staff.”
“Cimmaron Property Management is a great company to do business with. David and Robin head up an outstanding team that always responds in a timely and professional manner and takes care of all the details for me and my guests. I highly recommend them!”
“I have entrusted David and Robin to maintain my million dollar investment while I live a couple thousand miles away.
