Rows of chairs for rent dominate Coki Beach on St. Thomas, leaving little room for those who want to enjoy the seaside without paying.

Dear editor,

First, let me say how much my husband and I love St. Thomas. It has definitely become our home away from home. We have been vacationing on St. Thomas for the past 21 years. In 1998, we purchased a timeshare at Megans Point and in 2007, we began purchasing timeshares at Bluebeard’s Castle. We are now owners of four timeshares and waiting for our deeds for two additional timeshares; all of which are at Bluebeard’s Castle.
