Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or a family vacation with 1-2 young children, the condo has everything you need for that special trip. The condo comfortably accommodates 2-4 guests. Located only 100 yards from the white sand beach on Cowpet Bay, the condo’s two private balconies offer spectacular views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

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!

Fantastic Vacation Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Hat's off to Sue and Bruce Davis! It is hard to add to the accolades they receive in all their reviews. Their condos (we were lucky to experience both Condos I and II) and the overall setting at Elysian are welcoming to anyone looking forward to an exceptional experience. And great weather seems to be a given. Amenities lack for nothing including very comfortable beds, a nicely equipped kitchen, useable outdoor balconies, great views of a lovely beach, easy access to two on-site restaurants and a 5 minute ride to Red Hook (numerous bars/restaurants, groceries and ferries/excursions to other islands). Extras are well documented by many reviewers (lot's of snorkel equipment in each condo, coolers for the beach, noodles for the pool, washer/dryer, etc) and they all add simplicity to your stay and value for your money. By the way, their were as many people enjoying the sun at the beach as their were sitting under the many palm trees just reading and relaxing. It was obvious from our first communication with Sue and Bruce that they also visit the island often to ensure that everything is wonderfully maintained. Their summary of what to pack and things to do (sent with the keys two weeks prior) was spot on and helpful. We are experienced travelers and the Davis's rank with the best! We would highly recommend this property and this part of the island to friends and family, and look forward to a return visit ourselves. As Bob Hope always said - Thanks for the memories!

East End Eden and the Elysian are Truly Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to spend our 25th wedding anniversary at East End Eden. It was an amazing week. From the beginning, Bruce and Sue were wonderful to work with. The condo was so comfortable and had all of the amenities of home. The beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, snorkel gear, and collection of books came in handy for our beach days. The washer and dryer was helpful as we brought all clean clothes home with us. We spent a day at Magen's Bay, Lindquist Beach and Cinnamon Beach on St. John - each beach is more beautiful than the next. We spent much time at the Elysian Beach. It was not ever crowded and the shade of the palm trees was much needed at times. The weather all week was gorgeous! We ate at both restaurants at the Elysian and both provided good food, service, and tropical drinks. We met a lot of nice, friendly people at the beach and pool bar. The condo location is perfect and just a short drive to Red Hook where we ate at Pesce's, Molly Malone's, and the Caribbean Saloon - we would highly recommend all of these restaurants. We took the car ferry to St. John. We chartered a power boat at the Red Hook Marina with Sea & Ski and went island hopping - highly recommended! We snorkeled the Caves and the Indian. We ate lunch at Willy T's near Norman Island. We watched the sunset at the Marriott at Frenchman's Cove - stunning! Driving on the island is a little crazy. We rented a jeep wrangler which was a good investment. Be careful. We hope to visit St. Thomas again and would definitely stay at East End Eden. Thanks again Bruce and Sue!

We loved the condo and the resort.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice. It was clean, well stocked and a great place to spend a week or more. We loved the location and resort. The service and the owners' recommendations were like having our own private island guide book. We hope to be back soon!

Absolutely PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an all-around great family vacation, look no further than this fabulous East End Eden condo. The condo, which is exactly as depicted in the photos, offers absolutely everything you might need in a vacation home. The condo, originally two separate units, offers a good flow and distinct, separate spaces for parents and kids. The murphy bed was just perfect, easily storing during the day to open up the living area. The bright colors and casual decor are perfect for the Caribbean setting.

The resort itself is very well located and offers a lovely pool, nice sand beach and two decent restaurants. Given it's size and the location of the unit, you can easily go back and forth from your room and the pool or beach area, which is a refreshing change. There are numerous dining options on the main access road leading up to the resort and still others in the town of Red Hook. For those who prefer to dine in, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need for cooking. There are two markets very close to the condo, including a great market in the town of Red Hook.

We will definitely return to this little slice of paradise in St Thomas!!!

Perfect accommodations !!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean, beautifully decorated, with everything you could possibly need. There were games for the Grands (whose family rented Condo II) snorkeling gear, coolers, noodles for beach & pool, great selection of movies, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable bedding. Was more beautiful in person than pictures (and they are great). Two patios with comfy furniture and beautiful views. Was nice having two baths so we could both be getting ready at the same time. We had no problem getting beach towels every day from the office. Sangria's was a great place to eat, good food and fair prices, excellent staff and atmosphere. We ate there every night other than the night we went to Duffy's Love Shack in Red Hook. My daughters family rented Condo II and we were only a building apart. Right in front of our building was the ice and soda machines. Sue & Bruce were excellent to work with. She answered any questions we had, gave us information sheets, which were very helpful. Was nice to have a phone to call rest of family in the other unit. Food Center grocery store was a short drive from the complex - some prices higher, some about the same as home, but the convenience of being close was worth it. We used Amalie Car Rental which I would recommend. Amy picked us up right at the dock, since we were coming from St. John. Also met us at the airport when we were leaving - very convenient and brand new vehicle. The rental process was very easy at East End Eden.. We actually met Sue there, since she was on sight taking possession of Condo III, their new unit. I would highly recommend any of her units...could not have been more pleased. So happy I found their listing on VRBO !! You will not be disappointed - this was a great experience - we felt so at home, didn't want to leave.

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.
