Guestbook comments from the owner

Lorraine & Bill:

Diane, Megan, Lindsey and I had a great time! Your place was great. I told my wife she did great finding it. Cowpet Bay is beautiful. We took a day sail snorkeling at St. John and St. James. Took the car over to St. John and spent time snorkeling at Trunk Bay, then drove down and had lunch at Skinny Legs. My wife and kids fell in love with the wild donkeys.

Just a great 5 days! We're already talking about the next trip. Thanks so much for sharing your place with us.

Perfect view!

Nothing better then waking up from your cozy comfortable bed and being able to go sit out on an amazing balcony to drink your coffee and watch the sunrise over the ocean.Water's edge is great location. The unit is clean and well maintained. If an issue does arise there are plenty of on island numbers to call on for Service. I have a son who lives on the island so I plan to rent the unit again when I visit him next time.

Nice place but the beds were awful.

  • 3 of 5

The condo was really nice. The resort was lovely as well. The big problem was the beds. They were so uncomfortable that it was like sleeping on a table. When on vacation you want to be able to have a nice bed and this really put a negative on the trip. All in all the place was really nice and the pool and beach area were lovely.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your feedback. Guest enjoyment of our condo is important to us. Mattress preferences vary considerably and are really individual. We have actually had several guests comment on how comfortable they felt the beds are. The master bedroom has a medium-firm pillow-top mattress and all beds have quilted mattress covers.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation rental for our visit to St Thomas. The condo had everything we needed for 2 adults and two teenage girls. Beautiful views, convenient to a couple of beach restaurants (good food), Red Hook, and the local grocery store. LOVED listening to the surf day and night. Otherwise condo was very peaceful. Enough room for us to relax and spread out when we wanted. We took full advantage of the kitchen and supplies, and weren't lacking anything. Patio was perfect for evening cocktails, with great breezes. Beach is nice, water clear. There is some sea grass but it is shallow and the water is very swimmable, with soft sand. Not crowded at all. I highly recommend a rental car for this area. It was not as hard as I thought to drive on the left side of the road - just concentrate and pay attention! Very much enjoyed our stay!

We had a terrific time in Cowpet Bay. The condo at Water's Edge was perfectly located just steps away from a gorgeous beach with two terrific restaurants, a beach bar, and a swimming pool and hot tub. Bill and Lorraine were very helpful and their place had all the amenities to truly make it a home away from home. Highlights included a visit to Coral World and Koki beach and snorkelling through the underwater trail at Trunk Bay on St. John. This place is paradise.

Great property with amazing view, great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in this beautiful condo, that was so close to all of the action yet provided a beautiful beach that felt like it was just for us. The owners were very nice and accommodating and made everything go smoothly. This was our third year to stay at Cowpet Bay West and the first in this condo but we will definitely be back.

Winter Bliss

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very nice with a perfect location perfect overlooking Cowpet Bay with the boats/ships moored offshore. Loved sitting on the balcony. The condo certainly lived up to our expectations. Access to the beach and pool at Elysian was very convenient. Was nice that the beach seemed to be mainly used by people staying there, not overrun by cruise passengers or others like is the case at Sapphire or Coki beaches. Would certainly stay at this unit again if/when we return to St. Thomas.
