As another reviewer stated, my wife and I also looked at other places, some within Cowpet Bay and some further out. We made our decision to rent this property and it was a great decision. Not even a 5 minute walk down to the beach! Free chairs and umbrellas at the beach are a definite plus and since beaches are public, there's no issue with adjacent resorts. The restaurants next door at the Elysian were great and staffed with super friendly people. Considering we planned on spending little time in the room and most of our time at the beach, the room was perfect for us. It has everything you need: an incredibly comfortable king size bed, roomy bathroom, microwave, coffee maker and toaster oven. Sophia and John, the owners, are super nice and helpful. We would highly recommend this room during your St. Thomas visit. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful and safe place, this is it!
