Overview

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 2-8

In this exquisitely decorated two bedroom condo, each room has a state of the art split A/C unit, ceiling fans, cable TV, IPod docking station and 3 private bathrooms, two bathrooms have walk-in-showers, each bathroom is equipped with a hair dryer. Also: a big bucket of water toys, sand & beach toys for the kids to enjoy. The condo contains one king, two queens, one drop-down queen Murphy bed, and a twin inflatable mattress with built in inflate/deflate pump. Central to the condo is a fully equipped renovated kitchen with breakfast bar, dining area, and living room. The condo includes three private furnished balconies with views of beach and ocean.

As a direct guest of the owner (through this website), you will be provided the best rates and a private check-in that allows you to bypass the front-desk process. All linens are provided.

On site amenities include, Tennis, Spa, and the beautiful Elysian Pool and Hot Tub. The resort is just two miles from Red Hook, the center of St. Thomas's popular east end activity and ferry transports to the other nearby islands.

The Resort: Come and enjoy the exclusive and immaculately manicured Elysian Beach Resort where the aqua blue Caribbean water of Cowpet Bay will be ever present in your views from the living room, the bedrooms, or any one of the three private balconies of this exquisite condo.

The Elysian is located just 12.5 scenic miles from the Cyril E. King airport (STT) on the east end of St. Thomas where it rises from its secluded beach to offer a most magnificent setting tucked quietly between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club.

From the moment you enter the resort you will begin to relax as you discover that most all of your vacation needs can be satisfied just steps from the condo door, right on the premises.

If partaking of island rum is on your agenda, visit one of the three resort bars. Make sure to ask for the ever popular 'Pain-Killer' drink invented on the island of Jost Van Dyke - a short ferry ride from Red Hook :)

The Beach and the Elysian Pool and Hot Tub: Enjoy the beautifully secluded white sand beach, where, in the shade of the palm trees, you will find complimentary use of beach furniture and a sports concession stand that offers a variety of water toys such as paddle boats, single and double kayaks, windsurfers, float-mats, and snorkeling gear.

For a change of scenery, with reading material in hand, consider spending an afternoon sitting at the Elysian freshwater swimming pool; one of the most exquisitely designed and landscaped pools on the island, complete with rock grotto waterfall and hot tub.

Relaxing on the beach: Enjoy a quiet day on the beach while watch the iguanas sunbathing.

Start your day with a fresh cup of coffee on one of the three balconies and get started on that book you've been wanting to read! If coffee and a book is not your style, consider a game of tennis on a court surrounded by palm trees.

About Nancy

This Elysian Beach Resort condo on Cowpet Bay Beach is owned by two families who love St. Thomas. We hope to someday spend several months at a time on the island.

Nancy purchased this condo in 2008

Why Nancy chose East End

After visiting many islands throughout the Caribbean, we settled on buying property at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach on St. Thomas because of the large variety of activities in the area. We choose to purchase on the East End of the island for easy access to the people/car ferry and other boating activities available in Red Hook.

Excellent Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay and seriously did NOT want to leave! The condo was clean, airy, and pleasant. We appreciated all the modern updates to the kitchen and bathrooms. The location was fabulous - everything you would need was right on-site. Cowpet Bay beach is very nice and there is a lot of shade. The Caribbean Fish Market was one of the best meals we had on the island, and considering it was right there, that made it the best. The pool is fabulous. Getting around the island was easy from Cowpet Bay. As a travel agent, I appreciated how professionally all of the logistics of the stay were managed. I also appreciate all of the steps they take to ensure the property is clean and safe. The condo does need a new blender and better outdoor chairs, but these things were so minor that we still enjoyed our stay immensely. We hope to return soon and would definitely recommend the property to anyone considering a vacation in the Caribbean. Thank you, Nancy, for a fabulous vacation!

Great Snorkeling at Elysian Cowpet Bay

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. The condo had so much room for just the four of us and was well furnished. We did find a few items needing some attention such as the dryer, dishwasher, balcony furniture, dining room table chair, as well as the need for a functioning blender. There was a sign that the air conditioner didn't work, but Nancy assured us it was working and it definitely worked fine. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend renting a car. Taxi services on the island were unreliable. Some of the best snorkeling experience was basically right there on Elysian Cowpet Bay. We saw everything from barracuda, stingray, squid, and more. The kitchen was wonderful with an open floor plan for visiting. We would definitely stay in this unit again. Having a balcony off each area was so accommodating. Thank you Nancy for a wonderful experience!

Perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

As others have mentioned, the E unit was exactly as advertised and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The showers in the bedroom units were recently updated, which was nice. With an 84 year old along with us, who uses a cane, we were able to get around relatively well (she managed the steps fine with our help). We enjoyed Sangria's and the pool bar for several happy hours / lunches and also went to the upscale restaurant once (very good). Wireless worked well and the unit was supplied with everything we needed. We would definitely stay again!

First Class Accomodations, location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay at this unit in the Elysian Beach Resort!. This is the place to stay! Unit was well appointed, clean and fully functional with a great layout. The pricing was very reasonable and it was well worth it. It is certainly one of the better resorts around with well maintained grounds, access to the beach, good food and a convenient pool. There are tons of things to do, and places to go if you choose to wander out and about.

There are some "must see" places to go while you are there such as the Soggy Dollar and/or Sydney's Peace & Love on Yost Van Dyke. There was some very good snorkeling at multiple places with all kinds of interesting pelagic life such as spotted rays, turtles, octopus .. you name it. To get there, check out St Thomas Boat Rental for great transportation.

Try the out of the way restaurants and bars ....for a different twist on the traditional Dairy Queen, a good stop is a little ramshackle place called the Udder Delight at Magan's Bay for a milkshake with some island rum thrown in ... maybe even a couple of stops there are warranted.

Loved the place. Loved the service. Loved the people.

Awesome trip, we will stay at Nancy's Condo again

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and will be back. Our unit was clean, well maintained and well furnished (with wireless). The ocean view from our unit was better than the pictures. The Elysian Beach Resort is one of the nicer resorts on the island. We had several meals and drinks at restaurants at the Elysian and all were great. It was a tough choice pool or beach as both were excellent.

We also did a few day trips. Nancy’s choices of suggested activities were awesome. We tried spear gun fishing with Captain Rick. Awesome time, it is not as challenging as it sounds, try it. We also went to St John by ferry with our car. The other trip was by boat to Yost Van Dyke. We chartered a boat through St. Thomas Boat rental. Our captain was outstanding. The Soggy Dollar is the place to go. We also snorkeled at several stops along the way.

I would suggest a car although you can get around without one. We cooked in and ate out over the course of the trip. Red Hook is a short drive with many restaurants and bars. If you are near Magan’s Bay, stop by Famous Delite (formerly Udder Delite ) for adult milkshakes.

Can’t wait to go back again. Nancy has it all covered!

A piece of home in heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was HUGE! the master bedrooms were beautifully appointed and each had a spacious balcony. The living room was very comfortable, with it's own balcony where everyone congregated for morning coffee or cocktails in the afternoons. The kitchen was completely stocked and the wine rack was over stocked with leftover bottles - just in CASE you might run out :)

The beach is beautiful with plenty of chaise lounges - as was the pool.

We ate at Sangria's a few times - the food was wonderful and it overlooks the beach and water. We didn't eat at the seafood restaurant. The pool has a snack bar where you can get hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks.

The best part - the location. Just minutes to Red hook and all the great dining and bars.

We got caught in a small hurricane and "hunkered down" that day, but had a blast. The condo was so comfortable we played all sorts of games and had a wonderful time.

Many thanks to Nancy for her prompt communications and early warning for the hurricane.

We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Nancy's vacation rentals are located within the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach on the highly desirable East End of St. Thomas, USVI near the village of Red Hook between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club.

I now have multiple vacation rentals at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach, all of which have been upgraded with new kitchens, bathrooms, cabinetry, and air conditioning.

From Beaching, scuba diving, snorkeling, SNUBA, ecotours, sailing, yachting, powerboating, submarining, rafting, jetskiing, parasailing, kayaking, horseback riding, parasailing, duty free shopping, dining (an abundance of excellent restaurants on the island), drinking, fishing, golfing, and tennis ... to visiting Paradise Point, Coral World, the St. Thomas Skyride ... to sight seeing (guided or unguided tours) ... to getting married ... or just relaxing on the condo deck and enjoying the view of the Caribbean Sea.

There is a LOT to do on the islands. Although there are plenty of things to do right on the island of St Thomas USVI, the great thing about being on the East End of St Thomas is that you have the ability to easily get off St Thomas to explore St Johns and the British Virgin Islands! Having been to St Thomas many times, the following remain my favorite things to do. They are not to be missed!

Visit Trunk Bay Beach on St Johns to relax and/or snorkel. To get there, take the Red Hook ferry to St Johns and then grab a cab to Trunk Bay beach.

Take your rental jeep on the car barge (to the left of the ferry terminal) to explore the island of St. John's. Visit the remote beaches on the far side such as Lampshur Bay. Eat at a roadside restaurant.

Rent a powerboat w/Captain in Red Hook and head out to Jost Van Dyke. The captain will help you with the best method to clear British customs. Visit Soggy Dollar Bar and enjoy a Painkiller #5 in White Bay. While there, also visit Ivan's Stress Free Bar and play bartender. Then hop over to Great Harbor to visit world famous Foxy's for another Painkiller! If you have time, get your captain to take you to Little Harbour and enjoy a meal at Sidney's Peace and Love. Make a day of Jost Van Dyke.

Have a Banana Daiquiri at Mountain Top on St. Thomas or enjoy an Adult Flavored milkshake at Udder Delight at the St. Thomas Dairy.

Red Hook is the place to go if you are looking for an evening of fun. This is where you will find the island-style party vibe that captures the whole block. This area offers lots of variety and many options in the way of nightlife. If bar-hopping is your style, this is a stop you don’t want to miss!

Check out Duffy's Love Shack - located in Red Hook Plaza parking lot opposite the Ferry dock.

All beaches in the Virgin Islands are open to the public. Non-hotel guests can usually rent chairs and water sports equipment at beach resorts. There are a LOT of great beaches on St. Thomas.

Out of the 44 beaches on the island, I prefer the beaches that have decent snorkeling, with a bar that serves Painkillers, and iguanas sunbathing. The beach that is right in front of the vacation rental is Cowpet Bay Beach and is a favorite with frequent island travelers.

For your first vacation to the USVIs, I recommend that you limit your island hopping to St. Thomas, St. John, and Jost Van Dyke. It will be all you can do to see and enjoy these islands. After visiting the islands many times over the years, I still enjoy these islands the most.

You will need to visit Tortola to clear British customs in order to go to Jost Van Dyke. While you are in Tortola, it is worth having drinks and lunch at Pusser's Landing.

I HIGHLY recommend you book a boat through John at St Thomas Boat Rental. We, the owners, have rented with him multiple times while in St Thomas and had a fantastic time. John took eight of us wherever we wanted to go and gave us a history lesson along the way. He even picked us up right at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach. We just packed a cooler. He provided snorkel equipment on the boat.

St. Thomas Boat Rental offers you a private boat for the day or half day. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride while St. Thomas Boat Rental’s captain handles the rest. Enjoy the beauty of the Virgin Islands at your pace, on your schedule with St. Thomas Boat Rental.

Walk across the street from the Elysian Beach Resort and set sail aboard The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas' own catamaran, the Lady Lynsey, offering day snorkel sails and sunset sails.

Or, enjoy one of the many charters available at the American Yacht Harbor in the village of Red Hook on the East End of St. Thomas, where you can discover the beauty of the Caribbean Sea as you explore white-sand beaches and snorkel through live coral reefs or 'The Caves' of Norman Island.

There are several island-hopping party destinations that are worth the trip such as any of the many bars on White Bay on Jost Van Dyke; generally rated G - Mild-to-Wild drunken behavior.
