Overview

East End Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Villa featuring 180 degree oceanviews! Best Views on Resort!

FREE WI-FI in condo! BelleKarma is a newly (2014) updated villa with amazing St John and BVI views from 50' wrap around deck! Same view from inside Villa! You will notice that this is a Point Pleasant 'Superior' unit which now has a divided bedroom/living room. We felt our guests needed more privacy especially when traveling with children.

Upon your arrival you will want to relax and take in the view, waiting for you will be rum & coke just the perfect way to start your vacation.

After unpacking you will probably want to shower and get ready for the evening..I've got a starter shampoo/body lotion combo ready for you just in case you left yours home!

I have 2 beach chairs, 2 sets of snorkel equipment and 2 tennis rackets for you to use. (bring tennis balls if you intend to play...)

Located cliff side at Point Pleasant Resort. The front entrance of the resort is gated and security is present 24/7, Point Pleasant features nature trails, private beach, casual restaurant/bar on property. A laundry room is also on property.

St Thomas has lots of mountains, beaches and turquoise waters. I recommend you rent a car so you don't miss any of the beautiful scenery.

New kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances! Everything you need if you want to play in the kitchen for a nice dinner..or just make your own breakfast and start your day enjoying the view! Of course if you like great restaurants there are many close by that I'd be happy to recommend.

The living room has a brand new 42' flat screen TV...DVD player as well...

You can walk to Coki beach if you want to snorkel and watch the beautiful fish! Coral World is also located at Coki...a fabulous aquarium, food and gift shop.

If fishing is your desire... for a great reference (the captains are locals and know these waters.If you decide to rent a boat why not venture to the BVI's (passport required) and visit Jost Van Dyke you'll party at The Soggy Dollar and Foxy's...on the way back snorkel at the 'Indians'..a cave adventure...

Best of all...no passport required in the USVI unless of course if you want to visit the BVI's on your trip, you will need to bring one.

We drive on the left..'shoulder to shoulder' is the motto...every beach on St Thomas is public so you might want to go beach hopping for the day....it's hard to decide on a favorite!!!

Effective April 1, 2014 Point Pleasant has a new hotel management company on property. My unit is considered 'self managed' and my guests are able to use the property shuttle.

Customer Service? I consider this a priority...I am available by e-mail, text or phone ready to help you make your vacation experience amazing!

Point Pleasant Lives Up To Its Name!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say we had an amazing time in St. Thomas and the property was just as great as the photos and descriptions Barb has posted. The location of the resort is great, quick drive to Red Hook, and Lundquist beach, and a short 15 min drive to our favorite Magen's Bay! The information pack that Barb sends was really helpful, made life much easier. We did rent a car, found it to be easy to get around the island, just don't explore at night makes it harder to find any references, and there are very few street signs. Loved our time and look forward to going back to such a great property.

The Best of Both Islands

  • 5 of 5

Nine great days spent at the wonderful Bella Karma in Point Pleasant. We arrived home earlier this week and have just been dreaming about going back since.

The property in and of itself is great. The condo is updated, large, and gave us many of the freedoms you would not find in a hotel room. That said, we chose not to use the kitchen a single time. There was just too much good eating out and about that we chose to partake in. Point Pleasant staff was great. They provided a shuttle service that took us to and from Red Hook (St. John ferry location) and local beaches, and it was all at no cost to us...only gratuity. The location of the condo is great if you think you may want to spend a fair amount of time on St. John. In our case, once we went to St. John, we didn't want to leave. That said, we wouldn't have chose to stay anywhere else...even on St. John. The ferry ride over is 15 minutes, and it is very enjoyable. During our trip we went to St. John and back four times. Point Pleasant is a little bit less conveniently located if you're looking to spend a lot of time downtown in Charlotte Amalie, but to be honest, we couldn't spend more than a few hours there. Mostly shopping. Point Pleasant also offered three pools on site, a restaurant (Panga - pretty pricey, not great food), a small private beach (Sugar Beach - where we started almost every morning off), and again, the staff was more than helpful and friendly.

Without repeating too much of what Barb and Jim have put in their description (which is all right on), it was just all around a great place and property. Great for anyone looking to explore and take in all that St. Thomas and St. John have to offer. Can't wait to go back.

Thanks for hosting us.

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a great experience! Now you can understand why I get so excited sharing my unit with guests! Point Pleasant is located near Redhook which gives you the real "local feel" of the island experience. Thanks for choosing Bellekarma for you stay! Barb

Our vacation was....Amazing!! Thank you so much Barbara for all of the info that was very helpful. The condo is just wonderful! It is so very well thought of! The resort itself is beautiful:) We took walks...swam...sightseeing..Morning Star boat ride to Honeymoon beach (just beautiful!)....ate (very well lol) We didn't rent a car...we used the taxis and the shuttle service provided by the resort. It was great and relaxing! We are def planning our next trip for next year and staying in Barbara's condo. We wouldn't change a thing! We picked a great time of the year to go because it was like we had the resort to ourselves! The staff was so helpful:) We love Mr. Charlie and Mr. Willie...Aaron and the girls at the front desk:) We love St. Thomas! Thanks again, Barbara!:))

8 Days in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My fanily and I (there are four of us) stayed here for a wonderful eight days. The place was all it was billed to be and more. The view was woderful and it was close to pretty much anything we wanted to do. The owner of the unit was very helpful and flexible from My first conversation wih her and any other time that I needed to get in touch with her. She provided great instructions in a guide she has created that is a must have if you are going to St. Thomas. I am very happy that we chose this place to stay on our visit to St. Thomas. If I could rate this as a 10 I would but I can only go to 5. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!

BellaKarma a hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Bellkarma for our honeymoon from upstate New York. We has an absolutely wonderful time. The condo was very clean and nicely decorated. The both the bed and couch were comfortable, and they make a very good use of the small space. They have a wraparound porch that is absolutely wonderful to sit out on and enjoy the island views. Barbra had everything we could possibly need at the condo from a blender, to a 42 inch flat screen tv and snorkeling gear.

During our stay we visited many of the other hotels for dinners and swimming, and Point Pleasant is one of the best values. The other hotels at this price point looked to be in a bit of disrepair. Point Pleasant is quite charming and you can tell that the new managers are putting lot of effort into sprucing up the property. I look forward to visiting again once the spa and the new restaurant (Blue Agave) opens.

I also looked at many of the individual condos at Point Pleasant (Sapphire Beach and Secret Harbour) and this one is one of the nicest. Barbra was wonderful, she sent over a guide book listing out all of the local hot spots and her recommendations.

My personal travel tips:

Rent a car- You’ll be able to travel the island much faster and get more of an authentic experience. If you try to stay on the property the entire time, you might get a bit bored. Taxis also seemed expensive at $6 or more per person per trip. If you do drive, it will take a bit to acclimate to the windy roads, but stick to the speed limit and you’ll get the hang of it after a day or two.

If you can’t stand to “unplug” bring your own internet hot spot- The internet was spotty. I think this is an island wide issue with their service.

Coral Word Aquarium and Underwater Observatory located at Coki Beach is a must! Beautiful marine life and lots of staff to answer your questions. After your walk through at the aquarium you can swim at their beach and see up close all the tropical fish as they surround you as you snorkel! Coki also offers a shore dive for those that like to dive.

Lindquist Beach at Smith Bay Park is stunning as far as view goes..long white sandy beach with shallow water that is absolutely crystal clear..

Redhook is our nearby town...it's central point is American Yacht Harbor Marina. The dock is public so you can take a leisurly walk and drool over all the yachts. The town has quaint shops, dive shop, and ice cream or coffee shops! They've got some fun restaurants and fancy restaurants. Walk in medical facility, post office, bank and pharmacy.

Ferry dock is located in Redhook...you can catch the ferry to St John from here if you're planning a day trip.

After passing through Redhook you can drive a few minutes then take the left fork up the hill and now you've got Lattitude 18...a very local restaurant/bar with music every night! Their chicken Roti is my favorite! Or...continue a minute further and take a right to Secret Harbor...once again more beach, more snorkeling, great restaurant that makes the best ahi tuna nachos you've ever tasted.

If eco-friendly is your passion..why not visit Eco-Tours and kayak through the mangroves..they offer tours that include kayaking, snorkeling and hiking! Lots of fun.

If history is your liking you can visit downtown Charlotte Amalie...St Thomas has a strong Danish presence and boasts wonderful historical walking tours.

The island now has a zipling for adventure seekers, a cable car to see fantastic views, Horsebck Riding,guided running tours, Daysails and Powerboat trips, fishing trips, Jeep rentals.

Full refund if cancellation is more than 60 days before check in.
