No need to ever leave Bolongo Bay. 3 excellent restaurants. Iggies's bar and grill for late night entertainment. Bolongo Bay resort for beach chairs, fine dining and water toys to rent. Day and sunset sails available aboard Heavenly Days. A dive shop and our own beautiful pool. Anything else you might want or need?

Oh I forgot, pet iguanas to watch off the balcony for those of us that miss our pets on vacation.

Hi Karen,



I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much we enjoyed our Thanksgiving vacation in your condo, there in beautiful St. Thomas! Being able to not only see, but also to hear the ocean tide was so relaxing and incredibly beautiful. We actually met some people from Chicago at Iggie's while there. I spoke to them today and we are looking at perhaps trying to do it again next Thanksgiving and meet up with them there! They wanted me to ask you if you knew any of the other condo owners there at Watergate that they could call directly to check out availability and pricing for their family? We would of course want to stay at your place again, if it is available. Thanks in advance for any info that you can offer, and thanks again for working with us on the late check out time...greatly appreciated!!

Recently retired after 25 years in Real Estate in Atlanta, Georgia. I was born and raised in upstate New York. Moved to Atlanta in 1977 to get warm. Not warm enough and oh, no ocean. I now reside half in Atlanta and half in St Thomas. Friends and family keep me in Atlanta but my heart takes me to Bolongo Bay.

Karen Smith purchased this condo in 2006

I bought this property the minute I walked on the balcony. My dream has always been to lie in bed and hear the waves. I found it. Morning sunrise, coffee on the balcony, morning swim in the pool, snorkeling in Bolongo Bay. Dinner on the beach. No more needed. This is the life.

Dear Karen,
I am SO glad we were finally able to get to St Thomas for a week instead of a few hours. It is a beautiful place, and even driving on the "wrong side" was fun. The eight of us want to let the world know that Bolongo Bay and your condo (and Andrew's) are the perfect places to explore the islands, play on the beaches, and relax all your cares away. (We spent loads of time in both of the units!) You have decorated a lovely island retreat and it made our stay even more wonderful.
We're all back home, but dreaming of sunrises over the water and dinners in the soft breezes at Bolongo Bay. 'Til next time.... our heartfelt thanks! Jerry, Mary Jane, Lamar, Cheryl, Leonard, Vicki, Alan, and Melonye

ANOTHER WONDERFUL VISIT

  • 5 of 5
Since this was our third trip to Karen's condo she knows we love it. The view from the balcony is just gorgeous. The condo is very well equipped with everything you could need. We love walking every morning before heading off for a day sail or to explore a new beach. We love Iggies, the open air beach front restaurant and there is also Mim's and Lobster Grille at Bolongo Beach Resort which is just a short walk down the beach. We like to take the ferry to St. John's for the day or check new restaurants on the island. It's location about half way between downtown shopping and Red Hook is perfectly situated. We have been coming to St. Thomas for several years but when we discovered Karen's condo 3 years ago we now think of it as our home away from home. Thanks Karen for sharing your piece of paradise.

JUST GOT HOME

  • 5 of 5
We just got home after a week in the condo. It was wonderful beyond belief. Every night we watched rays and turtles from the balcony.The view of the open ocean from there was perfect. Everything worked, was clean and just as explained in the listing.The ocean breezes were amazing.
With three good restaurants to walk to we never would have had to leave Bolongo Bay, although with the rental car we traversed the island every day. The beach is a bit rocky but good for snorkelling and the parasailing was a hit with our daughter and my husband. There are kayaks and other water toys available at the resort. There are tours available on "Heavenly Days", the catamaran.
We hit Lobster Grille the first night for the local lobster, Iggy's on Carnival night and Mim's on all you can eat shrimp night. All of the places are clearly explained in Karen's welcome packet. She suggested a grocery which was awesome and we found a new bakery on the way.
We were sad to leave our new-found friends and home away from home on St. Thomas yesterday. Thanks Karen for sharing your little hideaway with us, we will have to go back again someday.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!!!

  • 5 of 5
You know how sometimes you don't really know what you're going to get went you book "online"? Well... this vacation home exceeded our expectations. We agree with the previous January visitors, the pictures didn't show how roomy and how "right on the water" it is. (I see some pictures have since been added to convey that now.) We've been visiting St. Thomas since 1988. While many of the other island properties are in a steady and sad decline, this complex (and this unit) is in excellent repair. No bugs, well landscaped and exceptionally clean. The washer/dryer unit definitely allowed us to pack less and avoid those costly "checked bag" fees. We lacked for nothing. We cooked most of our meals in the well stocked kitchen. The previous guests even left a few "welcome" beverages in the fridge! (thank you!) So now we're back in the snow and thinking fondly of the sunrises on our breezy balcony and the evening beach entertainment down at Iggies. We'll definitely stay again. Our only mistake was going alone. It sleeps 6!! We're for sure having friends come with us next time!

REVIEW OF 92851 UNIT

  • 5 of 5
Hi All,
My wife & I as well as her cousin & her husband just returned from Bolongo Bay. The unit was better than I had expected. The pictures do not show the roominess of the condo. There was more than enough of room and storage area for all our items.
The view was nice, but better yet was the constant breeze off the water day and night. We never needed the a/c. One other amenity was the lack of bugs in the unit! On the beach at night sand flies (no-see-ums) come out and bug repellant is necessary. We had none of that in the condo. It was high enough from the beach and the constant offshore breeze kept them away.
Other than breakfast we took all meals out. We did eat mostly at Iggies & The Lobster Bar which had a large assortment of choices. The mushroom caps stuffed with crab meat in a special sauce was my favorite. Should we have desired to eat in, the kitchen was well supplied with stove, refridge, dishes, glasses, pots, etc. We did use the clothes washer & dryer as well as the abundant supply of towels, beach towels, etc.
We did sign up and take the tours advertised at the Bolongo Beach Club at the other end of the beach. They are definatly worth looking into.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for letting us rent your condo, Karen. We couldn't have found a better location for the activities that went on with the wedding we attended. Nearly everything was within walking distance.

We were so glad that Iggie's Beach Bar was on our beach. It provided the perfect atmosphere for the bachelor/bachelorette parties on Saturday, and the girls had a great time getting onstage to sing karaoke.

Breakfast at the Lobster Grille was wonderful! We all had the Heavenly Days meal, and the portion size was just right.

I wish my husband and I had more time to take in the SCUBA diving that was offered next to Iggie's. If we make it back down to St. Thomas, that's at the top of our list.

I loved walking down our beach on the last day we were there just checking out the sea life. We saw sea urchins, snails, fish, and loads of plant life. St. Thomas truly has the clearest water I have ever seen!

As for the condo itself, other than a few cracked floor/bathroom tiles, the place was great! The beds were very inviting, and the linens were comfortable. We were never without or felt anything was missing...except maybe a shot glass or two. :) We were so grateful that maintenance was able to get in and out when they came to fix the toilet. The view from your condo was spectacular, and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the balcony eating breakfast, reading, and watching it rain.

Again, thank you so much, and if we ever plan another trip to St. Thomas, we hope that your condo will be available.
