This vacation was just what we needed. The condo was great - just as pictured and described. It's well maintained, with tastefully added features such as a Keurig machine in the kitchen, a lavish duvet cover, and really comfortable goose down pillows. We were really able to relax and enjoy ourselves. The view from the condo is truly that of a paradise; we breakfasted on the patio, looking out onto the beach, watching the sapphire blue waters glitter under the sparkling sun. The beach is quiet and very relaxing, with natural shade provided by the sea grapes trees. We chose to cook our own meals, which was easy as the condo has a full kitchen with cook top and convection oven. If you wanted to avoid cooking, however, you can be served lunch beach-side from the "Banana Cabana" located right on the beach. They take orders from where ever you are on the beach, and bring it to you, from drinks to meals. Michael's, (the owner) on site assistant was very accommodating. Both were responsive to our requests, and helpful with providing needed information. We went into Red Hook for some grocery shopping, which is also full of many great restaurants. We also took the Safari bus, the local public transportation into Charlotte Amalie, the downtown area full of great shopping and site seeing. As we learned from some of the other guests on the beach, not all of the condos are renovated as they are privately owned, and at the discretion of the owner. This condo is fully renovated with an updated bathroom, kitchen, floor tiles, TV, and kitchen appliances - truly a great deal. We had our best vacation here, very peaceful and relaxing.
