Overview

East End Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Private Pool, Walk To Beach

The Secret Suite is your private island getaway whether it be for a relaxing trip with your family, a honeymoon, or just you and your friends going to the islands for some down time. The Secret Suite, located on the lower level of our property, is your gateway to paradise.

Our luxurious two bedroom, two bathroom air-conditioned suite with a fully equipped kitchen offers you the best that the island has to offer without the hassles (and the added fees) of staying at a hotel. Located steps away from Secret Harbour Beach, the Secret Suite is perched on a slight hill overlooking Nazareth Bay and the Caribbean Sea. The suite offers stunning daytime views and picturesque evenings as you watch cruise ships in the distance leaving for their next port of call.

When it comes to visiting St. Thomas there are a few things that can make your vacation smooth and comfortable- location and amenities. The Secret Suite is located less than 5 minutes away from the ferry to St. John- a must visit to experience one of the top ten most beautiful beaches at Trunk Bay. Stunning Meagen’s Bay (another top ten beach- the Virgin Islands has two) is 15 minutes away. Red Hook, a popular location for dining, nightlife, and shopping is located less than 5 minutes away from the Secret Suite. If jewelry (at amazing prices) and historic Danish architecture is on your list, Charlotte Amalie is 20 minutes away.

The Secret Suite is beautifully decorated with one Eurotop king size bed in the master bedroom and one Eurotop queen size bed in the second bedroom. The living room and dining area feature a flatscreen television with satellite reception and premium channels. The entire property is equipped with high-speed wireless internet so if you want to stay connected you can do it from the sofa, the bed, the hammock, or poolside. The pool is private and for your enjoyment.

Dining In? We have a fully equipped modern kitchen, with stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and gas grill.

Don’t feeling like cooking? We also have on hand menus (and our thoughts) on the best of island dining, takeout, and delivery.

Renting a car is highly recommended during your stay on St. Thomas. Taxi’s are available at charge of $10-15 per person per trip. Beyond the national chains there are some local companies that we can put you in contact with that often give better rates.

We have developed lots of recommendations from living here, and we can ensure that you have a seamless vacation experience. If you’d like let us know of anything you’d like to do and we can help put you in contact with folks that are going to treat your properly and give you a great experience.

About KJ Neilson

We left Boston in 2014 for a change of pace in the Caribbean. After renting for a short while we knew we wanted to call St. Thomas home.

KJ Neilson purchased this apartment in 2014

Why KJ Neilson chose East End

This property was an instant hit. The comfort and newness of the spaces on the property where unlike most other properties we viewed on St. Thomas. During the day we can enjoy the amazing stillness of the sea as far as our eyes can see. At night one of our favorite activities after the amazing sunsets is to watch the illuminated cruise ships out in the distance headed for another island.

What makes this apartment unique

There is nothing more relaxing than spending a nice day at the beach below and then taking a nap in the shaded hammock, or spending an evening in the private pool relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends. Or you can just curl up on the lounge chair and watch the sea from the comforts of your own space.

Outstanding!!

Great hosts! The house was clean and well maintained. We walked in to a bottle of wine and some complimentary tea. And we were able to walk to Secret Harbour without a bunch of gear! David and Andrew definitely helped make our vacation relaxing! Andrew was even willing to get my lost luggage from the delivery guy since we had left the suite for a little bit.

Wow, Fantastic Set-Up, Incredible Location, Great Time

  • 5 of 5
Sorry for the delay in getting this done....better late than never....I hope.

I believe that it is actually better than the pics on vrbo...especially the view.

We had an awesome time at the Secret Suite. It's sort of having your own private villa on the hillside above St Thomas' best cove-style beach.

Loved that we had the whole pool deck area as a private retreat. I have some incredible star pics from there...Orion framed by a moonlit palm tree.

David was great to work with...super responsive and helpful.

Beds and furnishings much newer and of higher quality than one usually finds in a vacation rental.

Great bar / restaurant right down the hill.

The Secret Suite is a Secret Gem!

I was planning on going to St. Thomas with two other friends and we initially were looking into hotels, but found it very difficult to find a place at a reasonable price, with Wifi, on the East End of the island. Just days before the trip, I contacted David and everything turned around. Not only was David incredibly friendly from the get go, but he also provided all the information we would need to have a great stay.

And the place... just wow. We pulled up to the house and automatically felt like, this is the vacation we were hoping for. The pool has an amazing view and is maintained every day. We had the grill and outdoor tables and pool chairs all to ourselves. In the morning we would wake up with a swim and breakfast on the deck looking out into the ocean, and at night we would light the torches and eat dinner by the pool.

Inside the unit was equally as comfortable. The kitchen has all the appliances and utensils you could need and the couches, TV, and beds all seem relatively new. We could turn the A/C on at night and got a great nights sleep. Strong WiFi, all the cable channels I was looking for, just an all-out fully equipped place.

The location is also great. You are minutes away from Secret Harbor Beach (we would drive because we had a car, not sure what the walk is like, but it's still close) and also a few minutes drive from the Ritz and Caribbean Fish Market (a great restaurant!). Also a few minutes drive to Food Center, which is where we would get groceries, as well as the Red Hook Ferry port, which we took to St. John, and all the Red Hook restaurants and bars (really liked Fishtails for a fun,casual brunch or lunch with great food- try their homemade wine vinegar dipping sauce!). Overall, I would highly recommend a car in St. Thomas, there really are almost no sidewalks and very narrow roads. However, make sure you get a car that can handle steep hills (lots of people have Jeeps) because there are many!

During this whole time, any time we had a question, David was so quick to respond and so helpful, and he just made me feel at ease.

I would recommend the Secret Suite to anyone and when we go back to St. Thomas, this is where we are staying! Thank you David and Andrew for making our trip so wonderful and memorable!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I stayed here for 1 week. It was better than we expected. Fit for 2 couples. It is beautiful, comfortable, and a home away from home. We enjoyed every moment of our trip. We found much comfort here with the pool and especially the hammock when we were not out exploring or sun bathing at the beautiful beaches. The owners, David and Andrew, are more than friendly! This unit is equipped with many appliances and cooking tools if you do not feel like dining out every night. It is very close to Red Hook where there are several restaurants. Walking is not recommended! You NEED to rent a vehicle on this island! We are looking forward to staying here on our next visit without a doubt!

David and Andrew, thank you again for the warm and welcoming hospitality! We are very excited to plan our next return here at the Secret Suite!

Car: recommended

Located on the East End of Saint Thomas our property is the ideal location to experience the best that St. Thomas has to offer. Secret Harbour Beach is an eight minute walk from your suite (although it is along a busy road, literally 2 mins by car) The Ritz Carlton, Vessup Bay, Cowpet Bay, and Cabrite Point beaches are within a three minute drive. Red Hook, an area of restaurants, shopping, groceries, charter boats, and ferries to St. John and the British Virgin Islands is also within a three minute drive. You can travel to one of the world's top ten beaches, Megan's Bay, within 15 minutes, and another top ten beach on St John, Trunk Bay, is just a short ferry ride away. Downtown Charlotte Amalie, home to historic Dutch architecture, duty free shopping, and historic sights is a 20 minute drive.
