Guestbook comments from the owner

St. Thomas wedding

Best place to stay on St. Thomas

This condo was even better than we expected. It was very clean and spacious. The location is excellent as it close to downtown Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook for a variety of restaurants. It has a well stocked kitchen for eating in as well. There were plenty of bath towels and beach towels and the beds were comfortable. It is right on the beach with fantastic views of the ocean and pool. The beach is not crowded and has two restaurants. You can book catamaran tours that leave right from the beach. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner Earl. He even called us the first day to make sure we made it there OK. We will definately return. We have rented other condos on St. Thomas from other owners in the past and have been disappointed. Not here! Thanks Earl.

Looking for paradise? Here it is....

For our family's first trip to St Thomas, we struck gold with this condo. When we booked the time, we received a package in the mail from Mr. Thomas that provided directions on getting there from the airport, where the closest store was, phone numbers for taxis, and general information about the area that proved to be extremely helpful when we arrived. The condo itself was in immaculate shape, with a view from the balcony that was postcard perfect. Everything we needed such as pots and pans were provided, as well as beach towels and even a few folding chairs for us to bring to the beach.

We chose to rent a car, which if you're like us and want to explore the islands, I do recommend. But be forewarned, driving on the left does take some getting use to, as does the pace in which some folks navigate the incredibly hilly and winding roads, but it was better than having to wait for taxis.

The people of St Thomas were extremely warm and friendly, with a quick smile and a "Good Morning, or Good Afternoon greeting.

The condo's proximity to the Bolongo Beach Resort proved to be very convenient. We took advantage of the beach bar at Iggy's on more than one occasion. I highly suggest going on Wednesday, when they offer an all you can eat buffet and some fantastic albeit unusual live entertainment.

We spent alot of our time snorkeling right off the beach in front of the condo, where we were fortunate enough to swim with some sea turtles. However, if swimming in the ocean is a little daunting, the condo does offer a lovely pool area, with umbrellas and deck chairs that allows you to catch all the rays you can, and cool off periodically when needed.

All too soon, our time was done and we had to come home. But we left with great memories, a nice tan, and plans to one day return to St Thomas, and this condo.

Home away from home. Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Steps from the pool and 2 mins from both the famous Mims and Iggies beach bar/restaurant. Lobster grill is 5 min walk down the beach.

This beautiful condo is over looking the ocean. We love to cook and eat on the balcony. You will find everything is here for you.

The owner Earl is a wonderful and caring person. He will send links to check out. These have information on everything on the Island and if you still have questions he is only a phone call away.

Don't forget to take a water taxi to Water Island. I had the best fish tacos there. The beach is beautiful and bring a cooler along or buy food and drink there.

So much to do or not, it's up to you.

The best ever

  • 5 of 5

I cannot compliment Mr. Thomas enough. I had a scheduling problem with his condo due to a serious family illness. Mr. Thomas was willing to work through the problem to my satisfaction. All during the process of booking and payment he has been such a joy to work with. I highly recommend Mr. Thomas, and his St Thomas condo. I will be staying there in the fall.

A wonderful property and a very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Earl's condo immensely. It was quite a nice unit. We had two couples stay in it with separate bedrooms and bathrooms. The Bolongo Bay beach was not the greatest as it had a rocky shore. But other than that Bolongo Bay was a perfect place to stay. Sand everywhere, 3 different restaurants to choose from and some beach activities. Earl provided much-needed info regarding the area concerning things to do, taxis, day trips etc. Earl even called to check on us a couple times just to see if we needed anything. He is quite obviously a very nice man who is concerned that his renters have an enjoyable experience. And WE DID!!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the 2016 Christmas holiday. I read every review and agree with all, the condo is very comfortable, in a beautiful location and has everything a group needs to make the stay enjoyable. What I truly appreciated is the owner's time and attention to us. He handled the rental process with great professionalism, his advice and help was invaluable and he truly cared that we were having a good vacation. He called us to make sure we had what we needed and made it clear he was available if anything came up. It is a big leap of faith to rent a place you have never seen. Our family had looked forward to this vacation for several months, so to arrive and see that we had been provided with what was promised and to have a person who really cared that our trip was a success made it that much more enjoyable. I wish Earl owned a place in every state, we would rent from him exclusively. Thank you!

Myself, along with my husband and two friends, thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The condo description and amenities, as listed out on HomeAway, were on point. We were pleased to be provided with all of the little things you enjoy daily at home (toilet paper, paper towels, etc.), along with all of the kitchen tools needed to properly cook. The owner of this property was also easily reachable, and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable during our stay.

This location is perfect for those who want to lay out by the beach or pool (less than a minute walk) or enjoy the nightlife (Iggies is just a 5 minute walk down the beach). When we weren't exploring the island, we enjoyed being by the beautiful pool and beach. Additionally, it was nice to go to happy hour and out at night, at Iggies, without having to worry about getting behind the wheel of a car. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to have an enjoyable, safe, and relaxing vacation on St. Thomas.
