I have visited St Thomas for over 20 years with friends from SOCAL, who own a waterfront home. . I still love it here. Favorite thing is to vist other islands,

nearby in a powerboat. Let me recommend my favorite dining out spots, things to do, and places to see while you are here with us. Just ask for info on this.

Juliet H Smith purchased this condo in 2006

My Realtor kept showing me condos each visit. Then I finally fell in love with this one. Now I can return again and again, and share with friends and family, as well. I love the Islands

Outstanding views, to the ocean beyond and the British Virgin Islands to the east. Panga, the on site waterfront restaurant is now serving excellent burgers, wraps, salads and daily specials. There are three pools on the property. Great beach within walking distance next door at Pineapple Beach, at the soon to be opened Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville Resort.

We are located a short walk to Coral World Undersea Aquarium, which will soon be offering a dolphin experience! Centrally located, with short drive to Red Hook of 10 minutes, or ease of catching public transportation. Friendly, helpful staff. Watersports Desk.

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
Part 1
As a "surprise" for my wife's 50th birthday, I began planning a return to the USVI in April 2009. At all other trips, we had stayed on St. John, preferring the tranquil, low key setting and great beaches. We were under the false impression that St. Thomas was the "Party Island".

While certainly St. Thomas has a nightlife that eclipses St. John, if you are looking for a spot to enjoy great beaches, good people and value, you can't beat Paul's Caribbean Escape. And you can find your little corner to enjoy as much of the nightlife as you desire.

We arrived late in STT on 3 June and had arranged for Bernadette to pick us up (she is the housekeeper). As soon as we exited to baggage claim, there she was waiting. A short trip to the other end of the island and we found ourselves in an unexpected paradise. My wife and I have traveled to many destinations (Mexico, South America, and Asia) and have stayed at some the most exclusive properties but Paul's Caribbean Escape is at the top of our list. Beyond providing a complete kitchen, living room bed & bath, all of the necessities you will need were also there (blender, complimentary rum, coconut milk, pineapple juice and ice). We had even arranged with Bernadette to pick-up some groceries (for which we paid her on arrival and she got everything we requested) so we wouldn't have to rush out in the am next day.

But the biggest surprise was the morning next day. While we had seen some of the pictures of the views, not one can really depict the incredible vistas the property enjoys. This more than any other reason makes the property an incredible value. To the left a beautiful unobstructed view of Pineapple beach. Straight north, you can see the charter boats gently bobbing in the serene bay. The eastern view is of particular beauty as you gaze across the channel to the outward islands. The balcony alone is worth the entire price of the rental!

After a breakfast in the condo, we arranged for a rental jeep (needed), quickly found our way to Marina (grocery) and stocked up on the balance of our "necessities". We then asked where the best local beaches were and unbelievably Smith's Beach was right on the way back (on the right). This beach easily compares to the best beaches on St. John.

WOW

  • 5 of 5
What can I say really that hasn't already been said? This place was simply fantastic! We arrived here on the 2nd of June for our honeymoon and couldn't have been more blown away. This unit is perfect with everything that you may need for your trip. A full size fridge with a stove and oven make cooking simple. The washer and dryer located within the unit were an absolute life-saver. Everything you need is thought of including dishes, silver wear, pots and pans, and even a coffee pot. There was nothing better than brewing a fresh pot of coffee and sitting on the balcony to watch the ocean come in. The place was spotless upon arrival and the bed couldn't have been more comfortable. The owner and property manager were there when we needed them and were excellent to work with. I would absolutely recommend this hideaway to anybody.

It was awesome to have chairs and snorkeling equipment there and available to use instead of having to rent them from somebody. While you're there definitely check out Panga, it's located about 300 feet away from the condo and they have FANTASTIC steak tacos! Others have said that they lost power and this was true for us. We lost it once for about two hours but it was definitely at no fault of the owner or the resort. This is an island wide problem and didn't impact our trip at all. Definitely check out the Walgreens in town. It's a little bit of a drive but it's awesome and new, plus it has all the essentials to do some cooking and they are much cheaper than the food center in Red Hook. You will need to go to the food center if you want to pick up meat however.

Again, I could not say more good things about this unit and the owner. He was extremely helpful in helping us find things to do around the island and also if we had any questions.

Owner's Response: Wow is right, we are so glad all went so smoothly and your honeymoon was such a success. Thanks for the tip on Walgreen's, we'll be sure to have future guests consider it as an alternative to the expensive Food Center. Unfortunately, since everything is imported, food and sundry items are expensive and it's good to have an alternative to the Food Center! We are so pleased you had all you needed in this Slice of Paradise! Yes, the washer/dryer is really convenient, makes packing a breeze and you need to bring so much less from home. Congratulations and best wished for a long and successful marriage and we're glad you chose to spend you special first days with us and we look forward to your return.

ONE OF THE BEST I'VE BEEN TO

  • 5 of 5
The place was immaculate! 180º view of the bay and mountains. Walking distance from a water-side pub. It exceptionally well-kept, and had every possible amenity you could need. Even had a Play Station and wireless.

Paul and Bernadette were always a phone-call away, and provided us with an endless list of activities and places to visit. Water was blue for miles, and weather was never bad.

The folks there were very friendly and helpful. My wife and I had a difficult time returning home.

Just remember: They drive on the LEFT side of the road.

Thanks for a great week, Paul. - Jay and Maria

PICTURES DON'T DO THIS PLACE JUSTICE!

Pictures don't do this place justice!
  • 5 of 5
Loved loved loved this place! Great location, amazing views, good breezes, 3 pools, a restaurant/bar on site, and good security/piece of mind on property. Juliet was so helpful and gave us tons of additional information to help plan our trip. This place is a little slice of heaven I wish I could call my own!

We arrived at the condo after dark due to flight delays and Budget Rental car hassles. The road inside Point Pleasant is very steep and scary but definitely worth it! We entered the condo and were pleasantly surprised! It was a little larger than we expected and had all these glass sliding doors to allow a 180 degree view and breezes. Unfortunately, we couldn't see our view at night so we had to wait until sunrise...which we did because we were so excited! And it was well worth it! Awesome view of the bay, mountains and other islands, the water has so many shades of turquoise and blue! We pretty much lived on the patio while at the condo to soak in every minute. We never even turned on the TV!

Bed was very comfy, A/C in bedroom worked extremely well (plus there's a ceiling fan), bathroom and kitchen were a little small but fine for 2 people. Hot water was touch and go but cold feels good after sun all day. Lost power once briefly but lit candles and it was romantic. Condo was clean, accurately described.

We took advantage of the ice chest, beach towels, and snorkel gear provided. We explored many of the spectacular beaches on STT and STJ, with Magen's and Lindquist being a fav on STT, and Trunk and Cinnamon on STJ. We took the jeep over to STJ one day, which was fun to explore and beach hop, but you have to leave on the last ferry at 6 pm, so we took the people ferry over the 2nd time to STJ so we could watch the sunset and hang out at the Beach Bar later into the night. Word of advice, go to Magen's or Trunk on a non-busy cruise day (not Tuesday/Wednesday!)... makes the world of difference in the whole vibe/serenity and pics. Thankfully we experienced the breathtaking beaches on STT and STJ first time without the cruisers!

Some recommended places that we visited and enjoyed.... Iggie's, Lattitude 18, XO Bistro, Duffy's, Sunset Grille, Sails at the Ritz, Virgilio's Italian in Frenchtown. On STJ: Spyglass for sunset drinks and/or the Beach Bar.

We stayed 7 nights but could've stayed much longer! We were EXTREMELY pleased that we chose this condo and would recommend it to friends and family! We would definitely stay here again! Enjoy

GORGEOUS VIEWS AND A GREAT VACATION WITH FAMILY

  • 4 of 5
We arrived at the condo to stay for a week with our little boy (4 years) and myself and my husband. We were pleased with the gorgeous view and the supply of beach towels, chairs, and cooler to use while we stayed there. The condo is very nice with everything you will need for a week. The location is good for getting to many beaches as well as the nearby town of Red Hook and the ferries. The roads you drive on and the hill the condo is on is quite high and we rented a jeep and were happy we did with the condition of many of the roads. Our son slept on the pull out in the living area and the one negative we will say is there are no blinds and he woke up with the sun every day. We did wish there were blinds so he could sleep in a little longer. We used the kitchen and grill for some meals and did all of our breakfasts in the condo and packed lunches in the cooler on all days to take with us for exploring. The pools on the resort are nothing special but our son did swim one day. I preferred to be ocean side at the beach enjoying the beautiful water and ocean. I would highly recommend the New Horizon day sail/snorkel trip and it was a highlight to our trip as well as St. John day trip. The only other thing that happened to us twice while at the condo was the water went out for about 15 minutes. One time it was while we were washing dishes and the other we were showering. Not sure if it is daily occurrence but we were very happy it came back on! Also there are many little small bugs around the island and they found their way into the condo. We got bit by the no seem bugs while staying there and I wish I would have brought bug spray with. I believe this would happen at any place you stay though as they are around the entire island. We would return to the condo and were pleased with our stay there and the location. It was very clean and well kept up. Thank you!

GREAT VIEW AND SEA BREEZE

  • 5 of 5
Property was clean and very comfortable including beach chairs and snorkeling equipment. Has A/C but not needed at all with constant sea breeze in January. Slept with wrap around sliding doors open every night for 2 weeks. Private Sugar Beach very handy. Close to Red Hook for ferries. Coki beach is a short walk and has the cruise ship crowd if you like people watching. Very good food at Pranga waterside restaurant/bar in the resort. Owner says in touch during stay, nice. Beware of parking scam at Coral World next to Coki Beach
I would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: We strive to provide all the comforts of home and agree, January has the wonderful Christmas winds, so there is no need for AC and we can leave the doors open to hear the waves below, lull us to sleep. Glad to hear you enjoyed the food at Panga, our newly remodeled waterside bar and grill and hopefully when you return, you can try their upscale dining at our full service restaurant, Blue Agave. We do like to stay in touch, to ensure that our guests are fully and completely satisfied with their accomodations. Thank you.

Notes:
Our rental is very popular with our guests. many of them return to stay with us 2-3 years in a row. This is a peaceful & private location, as you are high in the air, and once the entry door is closed to the stair well; you are in a world of your own, with the amazing ocean views out. Lots of comfortable seating on the deck, everything we can think of to provide for a week stay. We have a washer dryer in our rental, a stack unit in the kitchen area. Very rare feature for this resort.
