About Charlette Wernig
Mom & I are the two faces at Sonnenskuss these days since dad's passing in '05. Dad was a champion swimmer, and, with the help of a letter from Gene Tunney, was able to pick Key West, Fla. as his venue of choice to teach aquatic warfare during WWII. Mom, born in Germany (hence,Sonnenskuss), was a beautiful young ballet dancer. Two physical specimens, and just married, the newlyweds were able to live together off base. Dad loved his active duty in Key West (their first son was born at the naval hospital). He loved the heat & the water. Decades later, mom & dad (George & Charlette) began taking regular winter cruises throughout the Caribbean on the 'Bremen'. In '67 mom read about Cinnamon Bay in the NY Times, followed by consecutive annual stays at the campground. Our family fell in love with St. John, purchased a Serendip condo unit ('72-'73), and began the search for an ideal location to design & build a home in paradise. Mom & dad were always a 'perfect team' - proactive with enthusiasm - so, dad designed Sonnenskuss, loaded two 40' containers on L.I. (all bldg. materials, appliances, jeep, etc.) and commenced building in '79. The apartment was never touched by a '96 hurricane which purged the house of it's wooden structure. Rebuilt in masonry in '98, Sonnenskuss winter seasons provided infinite joy for my parents & friends - and continue to provide for guests new & old. Welcome!
