GORGEOUS BEACHFRONT CONDO ST THOMAS VACATION RENTAL BY OWNER ELYSIAN COWPET BAY

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 2-9

In this exquisitely decorated two bedroom condo, each room has a new state of the art split A/C unit, ceiling fans, cable TV, IPod docking station and 3 private bathrooms, each 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 electric inflate/deflate. 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.

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

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.

GREAT STAY!

  • 4 of 5
This is a very nice condo, we were there with our two daughters in their 20's, so the layout was perfect. The resort is great, we loved the pool and the beach. We rented a car which was nice since we were able to drive and get groceries at the Food Mart and go into Red Hook. We ate at the Caribbean Fish Market which was wonderful. Enjoyed watching all the iguanas.

GREAT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in June 2014. The location and condo were terrific. It was accurately represented in the description and photos. We called the owner with a couple questions about restaurants and shopping and they were super friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to a friend and hope to go back ourselves.

KLEMCKE/TAPIA WEDDING GROUP

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed your condo + facilities. Very spacious & comfortable for the 8 of us. We had a great time viewing the island but recommend rental of a vehicle to see the island+ all the beaches + St John's. Condo was great to return to: very comfy, each evening after going all day long!! Be sure to enjoy coffee in the AM on the balconies that are available. Nancy was very easy to work with; always just an E mail or phone call away. We stayed in her E unit. We would definitely recommend her + her condos to all.

FABULOUS CONDO IN A GORGEOUS SETTING

  • 5 of 5
This condo was fabulous, tastefully decorated with everything you would want or need. AC was great, but you really didn't need it much with the endless ocean breezes. Elysian Beach Resort is a beautiful resort, manicured, great view, spacious beach, and a terrific pool. Red Hook was a quick cab ride with endless restaurant choices. Elysian has a couple choices which were fine.Nancy was very responsive to our needs, always prompt to reply and help.

Lots of stairs throughout the resort. Yes there are iguanas, particularly at the pool, but they don't bother you. Actually, they are very entertaining. The pool is amazing with the grotto, curving irregular shape and tropical landscaping. Dave the bartender at the the pool bar took very good care of us.

GREAT CHOICE!!

  • 5 of 5
We went down for a destination wedding, and rented two condos from Nancy. From the first contact and inquiry, it was a pleasant "breeze".
On arrival, (after surviving the taxi ride from the airport, having paid for rides at theme parks that paled in white-knuckle comparison :-))we found ourselves checking in to two wonderfully appointed condos. Furnishings were complete in every sense. The pool was great. The beach was fabulous. The onsite restaurants were as good as any place we tried on three different islands. Not sure why the pool bar was closed, as that would have been a nice addition for evening enjoyment.
Our week there was amazing.
My best advice: Find a good taxi driver and get his card! We happened upon a great guy named Austin Duncan, and he accommodated us all week long- morning, noon and night. He was a very safe and aware driver, with a most pleasant demeanor.
We'll be going back, and the first arrangement we make will be to secure this condo(s).

FAMILY VACATION OF A LIFETIME

  • 5 of 5
To be honest with you all I was a little frightened! I never travel anywhere out of the US anymore. I am age 54, a widow with 5 children and 4 grandchildren. My son was getting married and I had NO CHOICE! I will tell you that once I walked into my condo, and out to the sea, I never wanted to leave! First the flight was no problem! All I could picture was running thru airports~ hours of waiting, losing kids and arriving at a tiny weird unfriendly place... (I've been to some places where I needed military personnel being a well traveled military wife!) This was paradise plus, especially for me! The airport was small, no deal !!! really and quite user friendly! My kids and I did rent a few cars ~ because we were set up very well by Nancy and her husband ~ who actually called ME a few times and talked me through so many details. I ended up not really needing mine because I stayed at the Elysium the entire time just walking back and forth between condos (and the Ritz ~next cove up the wedding locale) My children ate most meals in the condo which had everything to include plenty of laundry detergent! The decor is awesome and even though you are there as a family you feel special, tropical and pampered. There is so much to discover right there! Renting from Nancy was the way to go. One of my kids rented from the actual Elysium and when she walked in our place ie Nancy's ~she could not conceal her envy!! The pool, the beach, the restaurants the wait staff all so great. I loved going up to Redhook for dinner and snorkeling in St Johns. I cannot tell you how much I am going to recommend this to my friends. There is no crowding, we went in April, perfect temps. I will go back one day! Thank you from my heart Nancy, you did make it so easy on me! and for our little key mishap! you never lost your head! ;)
I had difficulty with the internet but it really was not an issue that could not be solved at all! And AT&T charged no fees whatsoever for calls and texting. I believe we also used the condo phones to call each other between rooms and Ritz so that made everything so compatible!! Plenty of room and bathrooms are gorgeous! Loved the makeup area. **********

Nancy's Condos 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 condos 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 condo 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, rented with him when we were in St Thomas in August 2012 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.
