Overview

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condominium, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 7)

See the spectacular views from our top floor 1,700 sq. ft. three bedroom, four full bath, non-smoking condominium at the Wyndham's Elysian Beach Resort overlooking beautiful Cowpet Bay (also see our two bedroom condo, VRBO #146165 or HomeAway #248171, at the same resort). Our top floor condo has all the features that you would want in a vacation condo as we stay there several weeks per year. The living area has a sectional sofa, a 50-inch TV, a DVD/CD player/stereo with iPod player and wireless internet service. It has a covered balcony with table, chairs, and Weber electric BBQ grill. The dining area has a table that seats six. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances (refrigerator, oven/cooktop, dishwasher, microwave), granite countertop, and an eating bar with three chairs.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor, both with a king beds and one has an additional single bed. The third bedroom is in a loft setting with a king bed. Also available is a port-a-crib. All three bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, individual quiet split air conditioning units, ceiling fans, large TVs with DVD players, dressers, and closets. Each bedroom has a private bath with two sinks (one in loft) and shower. The fourth bathroom has a combination tub/shower. All have private balconies with great views of Cowpet Bay and nearby islands. The loft deck is over-sized (12'x18') and is perfect for enjoying the views, socializing, sunbathing and star gazing.

It only takes 3 to 4 minutes to walk to the beautiful palm tree lined beach where there are complimentary beach and lounge chairs. Here you can bask in the sun or lay in the shade of a palm or seagrape tree. We even have a complimentary beach towel service. The beach has a large protected swimming area and an area where you can snorkel. Next to the beach is a large beautifully landscaped pool with hot tub. There is also a beach bar and two great restaurants, Caribbean Fish Market, serving lunch and dinner and Sangria's serving breakfast, and sandwiches and pizza for lunch and dinner. On site we have a tennis court, exercise room (fee), Health/Beauty/Massage Spa (fee) and water-sport rentals (fee). The water sport hut personnel can arrange boating excursions for you.

In the nearby town of Red Hook, you can take a ferry to St. John and the British Virgin Islands (passport required). The town has a dozen restaurants, a grocery store, gift and specialty shops, and a large marina. All of this is within a mile and a half of our condominium.

About Rick & Susan Taylor

Susan and Rick Taylor live in Wilmington DE, where they were born and raised. We also lived in Tulsa OK for 15 years. We have three married daughters and each of them gave us a grandchild in 2008, one in 2010, two more in July 2011 and one in January 2014.

Rick & Susan Taylor purchased this condo in 2005

Why Rick & Susan Taylor chose East End

We spent our 30th wedding anniversary with our family in St. Thomas and fell in love with the island. After visiting many other islands, we returned a year later looking for real estate. We stayed at the Elysian and realized the location on island, beach, facilities, and condos couldn't be beat. The rest is history.

What makes this condo unique

The property is very well maintain. On site there are two great restaurants, a beautiful uncrowded palm tree lined beach, a large swimming pool with hot tub and pool bar, a tennis court, an exercise facility (fee), a beauty/health/massage spa (fee), and a sports equipment rental hut.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome vacation, great choice on this condo, worked out perfectly, and enjoyed the beautiful view. Nothing crowded on any of the islands.Learning to drive on the left was fun. The car ferry ride to St John was worth it. Snorkeled at two great places, Trunk Bay and Haulover Bay.Did the jet skis at Sapphire and Double Header fishing trip, caught yellowtail snapper, mackerel and Roberts Grill cooked it for us.Had a wonderful trip with Break Away to Virgin Gorda, Marina Cay, Diamond Reef, and Jost Van Dyke’s Soggy Dollar Bar.On our rainy day we got in some tennis, snorkeled at Sapphire, not good visibility but cloudy day and then drove the island to Magen’s Bay.Food was all good! East End upscale, Halian was good, Iggy’s all you can eat crab night was so good! Delicious! Visited Duffy’s afterward for drinks and dancing. Celebrated a birthday at Room With A View, nice place!! Senor Pizza was good for a casual night, no atmosphere but decent pizza.Enjoyed tennis!! and tennis channel. Our last day was spent snorkeling at Coki Beach and Karaoke at Iggy’s, too fun!Now back to reality – Ugh! Thanks for a great time!

Another Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
There is a reason Richard and Susan's spot is now going 33/33 full five stars-- they make the experience absolutely terrific.

My family and I (4 kids, 16 to 8 years old) rented over the Thanksgiving holiday, and it was perfect. Richard and Susan have thought of everything to make the trip easy. Their condo is gorgeous, well appointed, and convenient. We've always stayed nearer to Charlotte Amalie and this was our first venture to the Red Hook area. We loved it; it is convenient to everything. However, do rent a car, and don't worry about the left hand driving-- everyone drives slow. Bring a GPS.

The other reviews have great restaurant tips, we agree with them all. They have an outside closet filled with beach stuff-- pool toys, snorkel gear, coolers, everything you'd need for the beach or pool. They have laid out brochures and pamphlets about restaurants in the area, their wifi code, and even a link to the pretty paintings on the condo's wall.

The resort is very nice, the pool is clean with a bar (great bar food). The view from the condo is amazing. We will be coming back to rent this specific condo.

Do not hesitate to rent from these folks. You will be glad you did.

Paradise St. Thomas-Elysian Resort at Rick/Susan's

Driving In St. Thomas is somewhat of an "Experience" to say the least. There are no road signs, so be sure to print Richard's Directions from the Airport, which were perfect. When we arrived at the Guard House to the Condo, what a surprise. We were greeted by a very Friendly Security Guard that showed us right where to park for our Stay. Once we opened the door to the Condo, we were greeted with an incredible view, of Cowpet Bay, and an immaculate home away from home for the next 8 days. It is very obvious that Richard and Susan have done their best to think of everything you will need for an incredible vacation. All of the King Size beds were extremely comfortable, with super luxurious linens. Each Bedroom has a Balcony that opens up to amazing views of the Bay. All of the appliances are Top Quality, and well appointed as well. We were 5 Adults, and never felt like we were cramped at all. The Condo is 2 Stories, and each BR has ample space to move freely about. We enjoyed Red Hook, and took a Boat Trip to Tortola, Jost van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, and Cooper Island with Capt. Pogan(highly recommend looking him up). We dined in Red Hook at XO(food was good), then trekked to Thirteen and to the Old Stone Farmhouse(Amazing Food at both Restaurants)! Again, be sure your GPS is working well!! In Red Hook, a new Super Market has opened, Moe's Market. It has a Fresh Butcher Shop, with Prime USDA Beef. Their Produce and Fruit was awesome. Highly recommend Moe's!! We visited many of the beaches on St. Thomas and none of them will disappoint!!. St. John and Cinnamon Bay were great as well. The Pool at the Elysian Resort, is AWESOME, and with the Bay/Beach, there is really no need to go anywhere!! Elysian Staff is very friendly, accommodating and willing to go out of their way for their Guests. I know Rick and Susan are proud of their St. Thomas Home, and I would recommend either of their Properties. This was a Great Place to Vacation and we look forward to our next trip back. Thank you very much for sharing your home with our family,

Spectacular View!

  • 5 of 5
What a View! This beautiful condo was described perfectly by the owners. It was very clean and well kept. The two restaurants on the property, located right on the beach were perfect for either casual or fine dining.
We enjoyed the large pool and hot tub as well as the pool bar. Good snorkeling right off of the beach, along with kayaks and paddle boats.
We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this condo to friends and family!

Best vacation ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 6 adults arrived ready to have fun. This place does not disappoint!!
The condo is gorgeous. It is decorated very well. No tacky hotel type stuff.The extra amenities provided, such as laundry soap, coolers, linens, great cookware, blow dryers, right down to chip clips, really made the stay wonderful. The condo is equipped like your own home, so you feel right at home. Any of the 4 balconies are a great place for morning coffee, or to watch the sunset. All of the info and tips the owners provider were very helpful. We really enjoyed reading the previous visitor comments in the guest book. It was helpful to have guidance on what restaurants to try, where to pick up groceries, when to get the ferry to St. Johns, and even what day trips are the best. We had lots of great food while on our trip to St. Thomas. We met lots of wonderful people. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The beach and pool at the condo are nice. The bartender at the pool bar was nice enough to pick up food from Sangria's twice for us so we didn't have to leave the pool area. Plus he makes a great painkiller. As good as the Soggy Dollar Bar painkillers.
Can't wait to go back!!! Thanks for everything

This condo is awesome; the pictures doesn't do it justice. From we entered the condo we were happy with our choice. Everything was there to make our stay comfortable; it was home away from home. After our day out it was always exciting to return to the condo. Staying at this condo add to our experience of having a great vacation. The view from the balcony was breathtaking; I took some amazing pictures. I felt like I was at a beach home in the movies. The owners were really helpful and provided needful information that helped us navigate the island. This was my best vacation ever!!!! Thanks Rick & Susan.

PERFECT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we stepped in the door, we knew it was going to be a great vacation! Being a family of 6 (2 teenagers, parents & grandparents) it's not always easy to find a home to rent with ideal sleeping arrangements. WE FOUND IT! 3 King Bedroom suites with large full bathrooms in each (plus an extra full bath off the kitchen) made it easy for everyone to have their own space. Beds were comfy and we loved the Egyptian cotton sheets on all the beds too! Each room had it's own separate AC unit which was great seeing that some of us like it cooler at night than others! And every bedroom had a flatscreen TV (one of the TVs wasn't working, but honestly... who goes on vacation to paradise to watch TV?) The view was fabulous from the 3 large balconies (sunrises and sunsets were beautiful each day). We have vacationed in St. Thomas several times over the years, and by far the location of this condo was awesome! Close to many restaurants, bars, beaches, shopping and the Red Hook Ferry made getting around quick and easy. The kitchen is cozy but has everything you need to whip up great meals. Tons of beach supplies are available in the storage closet including several different size coolers, floats/noodles, snorkel gear, beach toys for kids, etc... Beach chairs would have been great to have, but you can rent beach chairs at almost every beach for about $5 each. The owners even supply you with laundry detergent for the full size washer & dryer. Clean beach towels are available at the resort lobby at no charge. Staff in and around the Resort were very friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and pretty large plus there was a poolside bar that served food as well. The Restaurant on the property was a little pricey so we didn't partake, however, there are so many great places to dine out within minutes by car (Molly Mallones, XO Bistro are both great). Señor Pizza delivers within 30 minutes right to the condo door (that was fabulous). Didn't care so much for the beach at the resort... sand fleas and jellyfish made it undesirable for us but I'm not sure if that was just the time of year. Coki Beach, Sapphire Beach & Magans Bay are not to be missed. Take the Red Hook Ferry (about a 20'ish minute ride) to St. John -- Trunk Bay is like heaven on earth. All-in-all this was a perfect family vacation, and we will definitely rent here again next year!
