LUXURIOUS CONDO AT ELYSIAN BEACH RESORT

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 5.

Enjoy our beautifully renovated, top floor, 1,300 sq. ft. two bedroom, three full bath, non-smoking condominium at the Wyndham Elysian Beach Resort overlooking beautiful Cowpet Bay (also see our three bedroom, VRBO #76523 or HomeAway #248170, at the same resort). This 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 42-inch TV, a DVD/CD player/stereo with iPod player and wireless internet service. It has a covered balcony with table, chairs, chaise lounge and Weber electric BBQ grill. The dining area has a table that seats six. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances (refrigertor, oven/cooktop, dishwasher, microwave), granite countertop, and an eating bar with four chairs.

There is one bedroom on the main floor with a king bed. The second bedroom is in a loft setting with a king bed and a twin bed in an adjoining alcove. Also available is a Pak-N-Play. The bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, individual quiet split air conditioning units, ceiling fans, 32' TV’s with DVD players, dressers and closets. Each bedroom has a private bath with sink (two sinks in master) and combination tub/shower. Both have private balconies with views of Cowpet Bay. The loft balcony is over-sized (14’x20’) and is perfect for enjoying the views, socializing, sunbathing and star gazing.

It only takes 2 to 3 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 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
What a glorious place! The condo is wonderful and so nicely decorated and equipped. Our family enjoyed all of the island! Snorkeling was wonderful on St Thomas and St John. We hope to return again. Thanks so much! A honeymoon with the children.

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 and two more in July 2011.

Rick & Susan Taylor purchased this condo in 2007

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.

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.

PERFECT CONDO FOR A PERFECT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Rick and Susan for letting us stay in your beautiful condo. We had a wonderful time! The condo was just perfect. It had everything you needed. The beach was very nice. Sangria's restaurant was delicious. My girls loved the smoothies! The mixed drinks were very yummy too! All just steps from the beach! The swimming pool was great! Had a blast watching all the iguanas! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a nice, clean place to stay. The resort was kept very clean. It was a very relaxing vacation. Hated to leave! Thanks again for everything!

ANOTHER FANTASTIC VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week at Rick & Susan's condo and once again, it was a fabulous vacation with great weather! This is the third time we have stayed here and already are planning on returning next year. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone.....it is equipped with everything you could possibly need and is always impeccably clean. Our bed was so comfortable that I had to email Rick to find out what kind it was! The Elysian is a great spot - quiet little bay with sun & shade, no cruise ship visitors and plenty of chairs. Red Hook is just down the street where you can catch a ferry to anywhere. This year we booked a trip with The Bad Kitty and visited Virgin Gorda, Cooper Island, Norman Island and ended the day at Jost at the Soggy Dollar - highly recommend that trip....that boat can really move! Best part was coming back to the condo at the end of every day....can't wait to return! Thanks Rick & Susan!

FUN IN THE SUN!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week long vacation in St. Thomas at Rick and Susan's condo. Let me first start by saying that the condo is beautiful! It is very clean and well equipped! All the pots and pans are in perfect condition, there is everything you need to make a full meal - a good way to save some money, we ate breakfast in the condo every morning and made lunch (which we packed in the cooler they have in the closet to take with us on our daily excursions!). We decided to make dinner a couple of nights as well! We enjoyed eating out on the balcony and having our morning coffee out there! My two college aged kids loved the bedroom loft area and their own patio area, where they hung out almost every night when my husband and I went to bed! The area, we thought was the best on the island, we rented a jeep and went all over, exploring all the beaches and the views from the top of the mountains...beautiful!! Red Hook area was fun with lots of restaurants and places to get a cocktail but we really loved going back to the "east end" and it turned out that one of our favorite places (that Rick suggested to us)was close by the condo called Latitude 18...it was so much fun, a little hard to find at first but totally worth it! The food was good and the entertainment was VERY entertaining!!!
We heard a lot of mixed reviews about St. Thomas but it turned out to be one of favorite places to go, just avoid the downtown area when there are a lot of cruise ships in town, there are so many other places to go anyway!...we all agreed we would definitely go back there and hopefully be able to rent Susan and Ricks condo again!! Thanks so much Susan and Rick our family really loved it!

PERFECT LOCATION, PERFECT HOME AWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was our 5th time to St. Thomas, the first time at the Elysian and Rick and Susan's condo, and it was the best ever! The condo is spacious, clean and has everything you could need during your stay. The Elysian has one of the best beaches on the island and the two restauants on the property really give you that true resort feel. We liked so much that we're coming back in March!

GREAT FAMILY TRIP!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time using a private rental property and I would definitely do it again. Rick's condo is very spacious, clean and well appointed. The kitchen had great accessories. The local supermarket was great , although everything was more expensive. There was even some snorkeling equipment and a cooler to use at the beach. Having a 3rd bathroom was really nice. Rick is very organized and all the light switches are labeled and he sends you a great intro letter, including information on an amazing Shake shack near Magen Bay. The Elysian Beach resort was great, We really loved the flexibility of having two restaurants on property to chose from when we were too lazy to go out or cook at home. Sangria's is great for lighter fare and The Fish Market was a lovely , high end meal where we celebrated our final night in St. Thomas. We liked it better than our meal at the Ritz, which is right next door to the Elysian. We stayed on property for about 1 1/2 days and explored the rest of the island and St. John the other days. The highlight was the sailing trip that we took that was offered by the Elysian. Great snorkeling that day, with spotted eagle rays, stingrays, squid, barracudas and lots of other beautiful underwater life. It included a nice lunch and the captain allowed my 13 to steer the boat! I have already recommended this property to a friend. We were there with our two sons, ages 13 and 15. We did rent a car, as the cost of taxis for 4 people would quickly add up. Driving on the left side of the road was interesting, but we survived! Road signs are not the greatest, but the island is small enough that it was fun when we got lost. Another highlight in town was the open air, sandy floor synagogue. All in all, it was a wonderful week. Rent this unit! You will be glad that you did.

The condo was perfect for our vacation. We just bought food at the grocery store for about 4 nights to eat at the condo. It rained about every other day, but this did not interrupt anything we had planned. WE REALLY ENJOYED OUR TIME HERE.
