Overview

East End Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Upscale, romantic, LUXURY.PRIVATE..HONEYMOON.ANNIVERSARY.Nature. Birds,Snorkelin

If you are looking for a serene and romantic tropical hide away in a luxury renovated cottage, you have found it.

Recommended as the 'most romantic' place to the stay in the Virgin Islands, Pavilions & Pools has been written about in Fodors Guide as a place where you could disappear, undisturbed, and never be seen until you leave. You can be free in your own BBQ and relax.

The Secret has been the subject of a tasteful gut renovation and has been restored, with an eye to every detail, to a private, just-for-two, luxury destination.

2 TV's. with a full TV package of channels including movies, sports and news. Beautiful new kitchen with dishwasher and stainless steel fridge. Four ring glass stove top.Bar with pretty honeycomb tile detail. Faux finishes and beautiful original art.

Once you enter through your gate you are in another world, far away from the demands of life so that you focus on your partner, or the novel you are writing and total, undisturbed relaxation.

Your pool is refreshing during the day and a perfect spot for a midnight dip. You are located next to a swath of the original easter caribbean dry jungle which is home to interesting birds and wildlife. Beyond it is the sea and some of the best beaches on the island. You can walk down to Sapphire and Pelican Beach or walk or drive along the road to Lindquist Beach in the National Park.

Here, beneath the shade or your gazebo, you can sip your morning coffee or cocktail and see some of our native birds: the yellow breasted bananaquit or hummingbirds. The now rare, native parrot can sometimes be seen in the beautifully landscaped tropical grounds.

Walk to Pelican Beach, beyond the jungle, to experience some of the island's best snorkeling in the coral canyons along the edge of Pelican Point. From here you wan walk along almost a golden mile of Sapphire Beach to the Sapphire Beach Marina. The boats here can be the launch to your own personal water borne adventure.

Breakaway leaves from here and is the best way to see all of the 50 plus islands in the archipelago in one day. You will be visiting the famous Baths at Virgin Gorda and dining on another island and visiting the Soggy Dollar Bay on Jost Van Dyke, so bring your passport. Stay closer to home and choose one of the day sails to the national park of St. John. Snorkel. Lunch at Honeymoon Beach. Take a romantic dinner sale. You can now rent kayaks at the Marina.

For those who like action some of the best scuba diving is to be found around these islands so visit Red Hook Dive, 5 minutes away. The marina also offers one of the best deep sea fishing experiences if you would like to try your hand at catching a Wahoo.

Time to eat, so throw your fish or steak on your barbecue in your garden and chill out in the pool as the delicious aroma rises.

It's the most convenience place to cool down. You don't have to walk around carrying towels and bother with taking your clothes on an off. You are already right at home.

Don't feel like cooking on the grill or in your gourmet kitchen? Then walk down the path through the tropical gardens outside of your personal preserve to visit or new restaurant Vicars Bar and Grill which serves traditional island cuisine and more. Our restaurant owner and chef hails from the Ritz Carlton. From here you have a view of the twinkling lights of Cruz Bay in St. John, looking across Pillsbury Sound.

You can also visit Red Hook, the centre of the island's night life, just 5 minutes drive away. There is something for everyone here with over a dozen bars and restaurants to choose from. Call or text us to ask what might be right for you or for any other recommendations.

There are several unusual aspects to your accommodations here that are very rare but which will make your life very comfortable. 2 AC units gives you separate controls and air conditioning units for your living area and bedroom. When you retire you can switch off your living room unit and retire to your cosy bedroom with your own remote control for the AC in your bedroom to guarantee your sleeping comfort.

Again you have 2 TV's: one on your living room and one in your bedroom. We have more channels here than most other places. WI Fi is available on a LAN at a nominal cost.

New BBQ grill allows you to cook al fresco.

This is your personal hideaway with you, unscripted, yet with the convenience of any service you need, just a phone call away. Your private home comes with help at any time from on island owners.

About Chris

I have lived on an off the island for over 20 years.

30 years experience in hospitality. I have worked at the Ritz Carlton and Hilton and some famous island hotels.

My emphasis is on personal service.

Chris purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Chris chose East End

To the best of my knowledge this is the most upgraded cottage at Pavilions & Pools.

It is one of only a few with a glimpse of the sea beyond the jungle from our bridge.

What makes this cottage unique

Updated.

Privacy.

Perfect romantic retreat.

Perfect Honeymoon Location

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property with quick access to everywhere! Chris is an absolute gift to the islands with her knowledge and suggestions, everything was spot on. The space is super private, clean, and luxuriously decorated from the amazing shower right down to the linens. If you are looking for a secluded romantic getaway with access to everything this is your property. We will stay here again !!

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well maintained. Chris was a wonderful and attentive host, who made sure all of the details were covered. The unit was private, quite and secure. Evenings spent enjoying wine poolside and grilling the catch of the day. Looking forward to our trip back next year.

Perfect for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

I searched all over the internet trying to find a place for my honeymoon and this place had everything that we wanted! This was our first time renting through homeaway so we were a little leary, but Chris was extremely helpful and a joy to work with as we planned our trip.

The pictures posted here are exactly what you will find. The home is beautiful. The pool and sunken shower were amazing amenities. The privacy of the home was great for us too.

We found the home to be in an excellent location as we frequently walked to Sapphire beach, Lindquist beach and Red Hook.

We are definitely planning to stay here again if/when we come back to the Virgin Islands.

Thanks again Chris!

Cute, w/all you need for a great island visit.

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Chris did everything possible to ensure that my wife and I had a great visit.

I strongly recommend this property to anyone who really wants a private, romantic getaway vacation. We are planning on soming back either next year or 2015.

The beaches over on St John were beautiful and I got a chance to do some nice snorkling over there.

One restaurant we found and will go back to was Glady's in downtown St Thomas.

We left with several weeks of wonderful memories compressed into 1 week.

Terrific Romantic Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I work for the airlines & have traveled to a lot of different places. Chris' place was just what we were looking for. Beautiful beaches, good restaurants, and plenty of alone time. If you enjoy some night life just walk out the gate & in a few steps is a friendly tavern called Cheers. Tina the owner will make you anything you ask for, or just sit & relax with a cocktail, & enjoy the beautiful view. Chris is very helpful with directions to beautiful beaches, good restaurants, & grocery stores. Chris' place was exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of privacy with all the amenities of home. We can't wait to return. Thanks Chris

This is a great location for a two center eco and ocean vacation.

The location of the cottage is close to the tip of St. Thomas where it almost touches St. John. You can take the 'people ferry' over to Cruz Bay for dinner or to listen to music or, if you have a car , take it across Pillsbury Sound on the 'barge' to explore the National Park for the day. You can walk across to the Sapphire Beach Marina to take the most amazing power boat trip around the BVI and see the famous rock formations at Virgin Gorda' or to take a snorkeling day sail to the St John National Park or a sunset sail around the beaches and islands.

Your view is towards Pelican Beach and Pelican Point across a swathe of protected eastern caribbean jungle that is rich in flora and fauna, with the islands of Tortola and St. John beyond.

Although hidden away and surrounded by nature you are only 5 minutes from Red Hook, the centre of dining and night life on the island. Hidden away, no one will know you are there but if you want to go out at night you are close to everything and can have a lot of fun.

You are also next door to part of the Saint Thomas National Park.

Lindquist Beach (Smith beach) is perhaps the prettiest, most unspoiled beach on the island. You can relax on your beach chair in the shade of a sea grape tree, sipping your drink and put your toes in the clear water. Ah...paradise.
