St. Thomas wedding

Best place to stay on St. Thomas



This condo was even better than we expected. It was very clean and spacious. The location is excellent as it close to downtown Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook for a variety of restaurants. It has a well stocked kitchen for eating in as well. There were plenty of bath towels and beach towels and the beds were comfortable. It is right on the beach with fantastic views of the ocean and pool. The beach is not crowded and has two restaurants. You can book catamaran tours that leave right from the beach. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner Earl. He even called us the first day to make sure we made it there OK. We will definately return. We have rented other condos on St. Thomas from other owners in the past and have been disappointed. Not here! Thanks Earl.

Looking for paradise? Here it is....

  • 5 of 5

For our family's first trip to St Thomas, we struck gold with this condo. When we booked the time, we received a package in the mail from Mr. Thomas that provided directions on getting there from the airport, where the closest store was, phone numbers for taxis, and general information about the area that proved to be extremely helpful when we arrived. The condo itself was in immaculate shape, with a view from the balcony that was postcard perfect. Everything we needed such as pots and pans were provided, as well as beach towels and even a few folding chairs for us to bring to the beach.

We chose to rent a car, which if you're like us and want to explore the islands, I do recommend. But be forewarned, driving on the left does take some getting use to, as does the pace in which some folks navigate the incredibly hilly and winding roads, but it was better than having to wait for taxis.

The people of St Thomas were extremely warm and friendly, with a quick smile and a "Good Morning, or Good Afternoon greeting.

The condo's proximity to the Bolongo Beach Resort proved to be very convenient. We took advantage of the beach bar at Iggy's on more than one occasion. I highly suggest going on Wednesday, when they offer an all you can eat buffet and some fantastic albeit unusual live entertainment.

We spent alot of our time snorkeling right off the beach in front of the condo, where we were fortunate enough to swim with some sea turtles. However, if swimming in the ocean is a little daunting, the condo does offer a lovely pool area, with umbrellas and deck chairs that allows you to catch all the rays you can, and cool off periodically when needed.

All too soon, our time was done and we had to come home. But we left with great memories, a nice tan, and plans to one day return to St Thomas, and this condo.

My husband and I very much enjoyed Earl Thomas' Watergate condo Jan. 12 - Feb. 2, 2010. Throughout the entire process of booking through stay, Mr. Thomas was most gracious, dependable, prompt. He always replies to queries in a timely and pleasant manner, and it is indeed a pleasure to work with him! The wonderful gift basket upon arrival was so appreciated, and we enjoyed its contents throughout our visit. Mr. Thomas called several times to check on us and our stay. He is truly concerned with his guests' comfort and enjoyment. The condo is attractive, furnished well with comfortable bedding, and is so delightfully clean and well maintained. The housekeeper is conscientious and excellent. This was our 4th stay at Watergate, but our first at this condo, and we will definitely return to this particular condo and Mr. Thomas. We had done the sights, beach hopping, and trips on other visits, so this year spent considerable time enjoying the pool and the warm, friendly owners and guests at the complex, many of whom we had met on previous visits. Some nights we ate on the condo balcony, enjoying the view; many nights we enjoyed local restaurants such as Roberts, Room with A View, North Side Bistro, Wikked, Shipwreck, Jacks, Tickles, Hook-Line and Sinker. Our 3 weeks passed very quickly, and already I miss not being lulled to sleep by the gentle waves. Snow and cold here in Ohio cannot compete with this balmy paradise.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

My two teenage daughters and I had a great stay at the condo. My 19 year old went as far as saying that this was the best vacation ever. The location was ideal -- close to Charlotte Amelie but quiet and relaxing. One of the best features was having Iggy's on the beach, so we were able to sit outside and have frozen drinks every night while listening to the ocean waves as well as the live music. It was ideal since we could then walk home and not be concerned with driving. We did rent a car, which was great for exploring the island, although driving on the left side was interesting. The condo was lovely, and just as pictured. And Earl's information before the trip was invaluable to a relaxing and fun stay. We would highly recommend staying here!

Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Bolongo Bay. This property is very convenient to Red Hook and Charlotte Amalie. Our unit was not ornate but was still beautiful. Our balcony looked directly out on the ocean. There are two really good, on site, restaurants Iggy's and Mimms. Iggy's has a Carnival Night on Wednesday that includes a buffett and Carribean show. This is a great place and we will visit again.

Very comfortable, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is about 50 feet from the water's edge, which is great for viewing and relaxing. We loved sitting out on the balcony, catching those lovely breezes. It's very comfortable, just like you're staying in a friend's home. There are 3 restaurants very close. We did not rent a car, just took cabs which was a good decision for us (We walked over to the Bolongo Bay Resort front desk and there was either a cab already there or they called one for us.).

In spite of the breezes, we were grateful to have air conditioning.

There was Wi-Fi. Television was a little hit or miss in terms of keeping up on US news, but we were on vacation so that wasn't a priority for us.

We called the owner as soon as we got inside and he provided us with the Wi-Fi password and answered some of our questions. He also sent lots of information about St. Thomas prior to our arrival. I was happy that he mentioned we should get a porter at the airport on the way home as that definitely saved us some time on a frantic Saturday afternoon.

We went on the Sky Ride, took the ferry to St. John, toured downtown Charlotte Amalie, spent some time at the pool, rented kayaks and watched the iguanas.

A lovely place.

Earl's waterfront property on the beach at Bolongo

  • 4 of 5

Earl's property on Bolongo Beach in St Thomas is exactly as described.

It is a well appointed, clean and very functional 2 Bedroom Apartment ( 2 bedrooms and 2 baths-1 king and two twins ) right above the pool facing the beach, and also above Mim's Seafood Rest.

Everything worked fine, including the apart. lock entry, and getting the internet and cable Roku-TV working. No issues at all. The sofa was already made up for a guest.

Since we were coming off of a sailing charter in the BVI, we were there in the apart . for only one night, and had to leave promptly in the morning to fly back from St THomas airport, after our 1 overnight stay, so I have very limited experience.

We only ate one meal, at Iggys next door, which is OK for a burger, fried stuff, nachos etc and drinks...though really a bar...not the cleanest place....Mim's may be better, based on looks, though we didn't have time to eat there.

The taxi ride from the apartment took us about 30 minutes to the airport , since it was inauguration day, and traffic thru Charlotte Amalie was all tied up. Our Taxi from Charlotte Amalie was only 15 minutes and about $10.00 per person...

One thing I would recommend to get is to have a non stick fry pan in the apartment, since the pans are a bit old and not suitable for eggs etc. in the morning.

Other than this, in the kitchen there were some left over good rum,. coffee, sugar and spices to use...so we didn't really need to buy much other than breakfast food.

Earl was a very good communicator and all of the details of our stay were tied off very well.

We had No issues with our deposit.

Definitely A very good, though short, stay at Earl's Bolongo Bay Condo.
