Meet The Branner Family

Billy, Toni, Jenna, Will, and Jake
Our journey to find our tropical home began in the Bahamas, and led us to explore Florida, the Virgin Islands, the Mediterranean, the Hawaiian Islands, the Mexican Riviera, and most of the Caribbean Islands before deciding on St. John… July, 2013

Our search for a tropical home, featured on HGTV’s HouseHunters International, ended in 2009 on St. John with an anniversary trip to Caneel Bay.  After exploring the natural beauty of the island, researching the opportunities and realizing the benefits of owning a piece of paradise there, we jumped at the chance to make our dream come true.  With incredible help from the friendly residents of St. John, we purchased “The Temptress”.  Built in 1981 on a half acre in a great location, this bright yellow masonry home that had survived hurricanes like Hugo and Marilyn (and now Irma and Maria) was in bad need of a makeover.

We renovated, repaired and refurnished it inside and out, changing colors, adding landscaping and replacing furniture.  We renamed our place “Magic,” because that is what happens when our family gets together.

When not in paradise, Billy takes care of his patients in his Ophthalmology practice, Toni runs her Fitness and Nutrition enterprise, and they stay busy with their family.  And when not dancing, Jenna travels and promotes their Health Made Simple business in Charlotte with her husband Jake, while Will performs, creates and works in New York City.
