Perfect Week in Paradise

Stayed: January 2013
Our family just returned from a week at Sherri's condo in beautiful St Thomas. We shared the condo with another family with a small child (total 4 adults and 2 babies). Prior to our arrival, Sherri was readily available via email for our numerous questions that arose before we travelled.
Sherri was there to greet us once we arrived at the condo. She was very helpful in briefing us about the local attractions, restaurants, etc, as well as how things are done "island style." The accommodations were pristine. Sherri has thought of everything when it comes to this unit. It is both tastefully decorated and well-appointed. Sherri has provided binders of information regarding local attractions and activities, as well as practical information for your stay (i.e. garbage drop off, using the a/c, etc). As we were travelling with two infants, there were a lot of additional needs for our trip. Sherri provided a pack and play, and was kind enough to locate an extra high chair for us to use during our stay. A toddler car seat was available (we didn't use it, as we had gotten car seats with our rental car). She also had a variety of sand toys available to be used. We rented additional equipment/toys from Caribbean Nanny.
The beach and pool at the condo are lovely and well-maintained. It was not busy and overrun with cruiseship guests, which you will find on some of the larger beaches. Unfortunately, the hot tub was not working at the time. The condo property is also very well-maintained, with constant gardening work underway. The property is very quiet and peaceful at night. At nighttime, the front gates are manned by security.
We visited Coral World with our two small children, who both enjoyed the animals. We went to Sapphire Beach, but found it much too crowded. While there, we rented jet skis. A warning to anyone doing this: make sure you thoroughly check your jet ski before you leave!! They tried to pin damage to a jet ski on us and charge us an exorbitant amount, even though the cracked area in question was covered in duct tape!! Buyer beware!!
I would absolutely recommend this rental to friends and family. In fact, we're hoping to go back again next year!!

Owner's Response: Hi Sue,
Thanks so much for the outstanding review of the condo. I truly appreciate that you took time to write a detailed review to help other guests make informed decisions. I'm sure you're busy with your baby girl, hubby, and working as a doctor. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My best, Sherri
