Overview

East End Studio Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

Located in the beautiful Virgin Islands, on the East End of St. Thomas, the Cowpet Bay Garden Room is a lovely alternative to an impersonal hotel room.

This locally owned and meticulous studio apartment is available to anyone interested in a relaxed, 'no worries' approach to a paradise vacation.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm

Great place, lovely host!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little studio on the ground level of a condo complex that is right on the beach. It shares a beach with The Elysian, so you have access to all of those amenities, such as restaurants, beach chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, and other rentals. It's also a 3 minute walk to the Ritz Carlton, which has some great dining and drinks (I recommend the ginger martini!), as well as a taxi stand that we used. It's a 5 minute drive from Red Hook, where there are lots of dining options and the ferry to St. John. Everything was clean and to our liking. Sophia was also an awesome and very accommodating host. If you don't need a place where you plan on spending much time inside, you can't beat this for the hospitality and the price!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Sophia is a very nice host. She met us on the arrival day and showed the room we were renting. The room was very clean and had all the basic things you would need for your stay (paper towels, shampoo and conditioner, soap, clean towels, some plates and utensils, etc.). The location is very nice too, you have Ritz Carlton in 5 min walk with several classy restaurants and a beech bar. Rentals. like kayaks and snorkeling equipment, are available too. Then there is also an Elysian Resort beech in 3 min walk, where you may see the carnival show every Tuesday night. The beech is public and has several bars and restaurants, all in 2 mins walk from each other, so its very convenient. I would stay there again and recommend it to everybody who goes to St. Thomas!

Great place and friendly owners!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful Place & Great People

  • 5 of 5

After looking at several hotels and vacation rentals, my girlfriend and I decided to rent this room for our week in St. Thomas and it turned out to be a great decision. The location of the room is great, in Cowpet Bay East and a short walk to a beautiful resort beach with free chairs and umbrellas already set out (not to mention a beachside bar that makes a mean Painkiller). Not only does this beach cater to their visitors but it is also a pretty good place to snorkel as well.

As for the room, it has everything you need to feel comfortable during your trip; a king sized bed, big bathroom, separated sink, microwave and toaster oven. Like most people on vacation, we spent little time in the room but when we were there it was nice to be in a clean, comfortable, and safe environment. The owners, John and Sophia, are extremely nice and helpful and I would highly recommend this room to anyone looking to enjoy some peaceful time on the beautiful island of St. Thomas.

Great place to lay your head

  • 4 of 5

We rented this place for some friends that decided to come on vacation with us and condo was full. It was a great little place for two people. No phone but very well equiped with mini frig and micro wave. Nice big bathroom and king size room. Short walk to beach and restaurants and beach bar. Very friendly owners and very helpful. Only two miles to Red Hook and easy to get a taxi if needed.Would highly recommend if you did not need alot of room and did not spend alot of time in your room. Why would you if your in St. Thomas. Would recommend that you rent a car to stay at this location. 30 mins to capatial or about any where else on island.Can explore alot more of the island without paying for taxis once you figure out how to drive on the wrong side of the road. Cow Pet bay is a beautiful beach and no cruise ship crowd. The restaurent (Robert's) was a little spendy but food was good and the beach bar and pool bar were great. Half price drinks every day from 3:30 to 7:00 if moved from bar to bar.Red Hook had many great resturants and entertainment. Also had use of hotel pool and hot tub.
