About Sue and Bruce Davis

We live outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We first visited St. Thomas in March 2007 and immediately fell in love with the Island. After two more trips, all of which were spent at the Elysian in a colleague's condo, we decided we needed our own place. We purchased a 2 bedroom unit in 2009 (VRBO # 231249) and we've had so much fun meeting new guests (if only by phone or email)and helping them have a great Caribbean vacation, that we decided to buy a one bedroom unit in 2010. Eventually we intend to spend large portions of our retirement years in our condos, but for now we enjoy frequent vacations there and helping create memorable vacations for our guests.

Sue and Bruce Davis purchased this condo in 2010

Why Sue and Bruce Davis chose East End

From the moment we set foot on Cowpet Bay Beach we could feel the tensions leave us and we knew that this was the place we wanted to own a vacation home. St. Thomas is a US territory and easily accessible from the East Coast and most of the mainland US. The seclusion of Cowpet Bay and the gentle waves make it ideal for relaxing and recharging! But if you want a go-go vacation there are so many great beaches on St. Thomas and nearby St. John and the variety of restaurants on St. Thomas is amazing for an island that is only about 38 square miles. In short, we found our East End Eden so we decided to buy a condo or two!

This was our second stay in Bruce and Sue's condo at the Elysian Resort on Cowpet Bay, and we loved every minute! There are times when you return to a place for a second time and experience a bit of a let-down...but that was not the case during our second stay. The condo is as advertised, complete in every detail.

Red Hook, the tiny town and inter-island ferry terminal, is a five minute drive away. The American Marina, several very good restaurants, and not-to-be missed Duffy's Love Shack reside in Red Hook. Stock up on groceries at a market about a mile outside Red Hook, or take a short drive to the town of TuTu for grocery shopping which is a bit less expensive.

There are two restaurants right on Elysian Resort property...walk to either. Only steps away enjoy your own private beach with a beautiful view of Cowpet Bay and the Caribbean. Your beach is unspoiled and uncrowded.

Pick up a rental car at the airport. That will work much better for you than hiring cabs during your stay. As St Thomas is a small island, your road trips will be short but the Virgin Islands are full of low mountains and roads sometimes have steep inclines. Not to worry though, blazing speed on St Thomas equals 20-25 miles per hour.

From your Cowpet Bay condo you are minutes away from some spectacular beaches: Megans Bay on St Thomas and Trunk Bay on St John enjoy world renown. Take a fifteen minute ferry ride to St. John from Red Hook. Explore St John, catch some rays at any of its spectacular beaches, then stop by one of its relaxed restaurants/bars for a sunset dinner.

Pack your bags, then unpack half your stuff. A couple changes of clothes, a few bathing suits and flip-flops are your essentials. During the day, everything is laid back in informal. After sunset you might add a collared shirt for the men and something similar for the ladies. Your condo contains a state of the art washer/dryer set up, so you can pack less.

Long story short, you will enjoy your stay on St Thomas, and having access to this excellent condo at Cowpet Bay will have you planning you next stay even before its time to return home. It truly is an EastEnd Eden.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo for a week and were absolutely thrilled with all its amenities. The views from both decks are beautiful, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked with all the necessary cooking utensils, both beds are very comfortable and the overall condo is beautifully decorated. They also provide beach toys and snorkeling equipment. The Elysian Resort offers two very good restaurants, one more upscale and the other casual. The beach is picture perfect-we saw sea turtles while kayaking around it. We are definitely going back! Thanks Bruce and Sue!!

Christmas in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
To celebrate Christmas as well as our 20th anniversary, we took our two kids (12 & 18) to stay in this terrific condo for the holiday week. I've stayed at the Elysian before but it was the first time in this unit and we made ourselves at home immediately. This place is super comfortable, wonderfully outfitted, and the location simply can't be beat! It's convenient to everything, full of amenities (but not the crowds), and laid back in a way that makes you stretch out on one of the hammocks with a frosty drink in hand, a beautiful vista in sight, and a contented "ahhh" filling your soul... best nap *ever*. Thank you once again for creating such a cheerful "home" to return to after each happy day in paradise! It was so hard to leave... :0)

Great condo, great location and very nice renters

  • 4 of 5
East End Eden is a great condo and a great value. For the price we paid, it definitely exceeded our expectations. To our surprise, the condo was nicely stocked with a bunch of items we'd otherwise have to buy like sunscreens, sugar, cooking spices, etc. Also somewhat to our surprise, the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable and we slept extremely well every night. I've stayed in a lot of rental properties with uncomfortable beds and rock hard pillows so this was a really a pleasant surprise. We also took advantage of the washer/dryer and those were great.

The Elysian/Cowpet Bay property is great and the beach area is really nice. There are tons of beach chairs and I saw staff out there cleaning the beach and raking the sand every morning. Plus, there are two restaurants and a bar, so it's easy to spend the whole day there if that's what you want to do. We traveled down for our wedding and had a number of guests staying in different condos throughout the complex. Having a good beach area for everyone to get together really made things fun.

It also can't be overstated that if you don't rent a car while you're on St. Thomas (I drove but driving is not for the faint hearted there), you need to be able to get a taxi easily. Either of the restaurants at the beach can call you a cab, which usually showed up within minutes. This is definitely NOT the experience some of my other guests had who stayed at more out-of-the-way locations.

Although it's a bit of a hike from the airport, being near Red Hook was really great, not only because there are always cabs in the area to take you places, but also because it makes it easy to jump over to St. John on the ferry or head to any of the other islands in the area.

There were only a few minor things that caused me to give less than a 5-star review and I think they're really very minor. First was that there was very little toilet paper. Neither bathroom had a full roll when we checked in and there were no spares. Although there was lots of nice beach stuff including coolers, there were no beach towels, only the bathroom towels. The final thing was that the internet (WiFi) was really spotty and usually very slow when it did work. Since we were coordinating our wedding, we needed to get online and that was a bit frustrating.

But overall the condo was great and I would recommend it to anyone! Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of East End Eden. We certainly get a lot of positive comments about our Tempur-pedic beds and feather pillows! However we are disappointed that you did not have a 5-star stay at East End Eden like all of our other guest reviewers. As we note in the guest information packet provided to all of our guests, the Elysian Resort provides beach towels free of charge to our guests at their front desk. We provide a starter supply of paper products, including an extra roll of toilet paper for each bathroom. We apologize if our housekeeper forgot to leave extra rolls for your stay. Finally, we are pleased to provide free internet access to our guests, which many owners do not. Unfortunately, those familiar with St. Thomas know that the local internet service provider is sometimes short of reliable. We hope you will stay with us again in the future so we can provide you with our usual 5-star experience!

What a wonderful way to spend our 10 year anniversary!

  • 5 of 5
We had been to the Elysian a few months ago and decided to go back for our anniversary. The resort is perfect for us, with everything you need right there. This was the first time staying in this unit and will definitely make it again. The unit is very well equipped, down to the high quality snorkeling equipment which you can use right in the cove. We stayed on the beach everyday as the cool eastern breeze made if very comfortable. Tons of shade too as the sun can get pretty intense. This is a 2 unit rental, one unit contains a VERY comfortable king size bed, a small fridge, full bath and a balcony with gorgeous views of the ocean. The other unit is a full size kitchen, living area with Murphy and another full bath. It was only the 2 of us but you can fit either another couple or kids as there are double lock out doors between the units and access to the outside from both so you have your privacy. The main unit also had a great balcony too, big enough to eat dinner on if you choose to cook, as there is a very well equipped kitchen. Just a few steps away outside is an ice machine and drink machine. There are steps to go down to the beach and pool but not a deterrent, you need a little exercise! The 2 restaurants on the site, Sangria's, where we ate twice, and the fancier one, are so convenient, you don't have to leave. They also have a sports hut where you can book trips to other islands or snorkel. This resort is on the east side of St Thomas within a few miles of Red Hook and the ferry to take you to so many places, I would never want to stay any where else on the island. My favorite restaurant in Red Hook was Pesce's, also XO's for their appy's. There is a pizza place above the American Yacht Club stores that is local and comfortable. Don't forget Bubba's Fish Shack for a really fun time. Loved all the food here! One of the best parts of this trip was our hosts. When you travel for the first time to a place, you worry what it will be like but Sue and Bruce were so gracious and communication was awesome, information was provided to make our trip so much better. October is a fantastic month to go, high 80's during the day and high 70's at night and NOT busy at the airport. In Spring PLEASE leave time to get through customs and though we rented a car, please be careful as you drive on the left side of the road and it is a very hilly island. You will notice everyone has dents on their cars!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week celebrating our anniversary at East End Eden Condo I! The unit is cheerfully decorated and incredibly well stocked. They thought of most everything! The bed is a nice surprise: Tempur-Pedic! The Elysian itself is very inviting with two restaurants, plenty of chairs on the beach and an amazing pool area.
