|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
Our Bolongo Bay condominium located at 1626 Watergate Villas E. is a fully air-conditioned, two-bedroom, two-bath, non-smoking, privately owned, vacation rental located in a private oceanfront complex on the south shore. Enjoy gorgeous views of the Caribbean, swaying palms, and the coast from our beachfront balcony and from the living room, bedroom, and kitchen windows.
This beachfront condominium has some of the best views on the island and you can open the sliding glass doors to let in the gentle tropical breeze. The relaxing sounds of the surf will ease you to sleep at night. The pool sits just over the beach and you can walk to three beachfront restaurants.
Choose from a wide variety of activities and then spend your time as busy or relaxed as you would like. This island is perfectly suited for both, with endless dining, duty-free shopping, and sporting options as well as a few of the Caribbean’s best beaches, not often more than a few minutes from your Bolongo Bay villas door.

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.

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.
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.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel our travel due to illness, and with fairly short notice. The owner could not have been nicer, very understanding. He offered and then gave us a full refund!! Amazing! I'm so sorry we weren't able to complete our travel plans. But, believe me, we will rent from him again, anytime! And will recommend him to our friends!
We had a wonderful vacation at Bolongo Bay and this particular condo was perfect for our family. We have three kids, 13, 11 and 8 years old. We made breakfast and lunch in the condo and ate out every night. Our condo was clean and well-cared for. Mr. Thomas checked in with us and helped with every detail of our trip. We had a few issues with the TV but we did not vacation to St. Thomas to watch movies!
We enjoyed going to Iggies almost every night and attended a wedding at Bolongo Bay beach resort that was absolutely beautiful.
We hope to return to St. Thomas again and I would definitely stay at this condo again in the future!
Let's face it. There are many rental properties to choose from and you can pay a little or a lot. This condo, at its very reasonable price, provides everything you could possibly need and the owner is a sweetheart of a man. From day one Earl Thomas was courteous, informative and so very kind. Earl kept in touch with us from time to time during our stay just to see how we were. He was always available and responsive when we did have a question.
My husband and I traveled to St. Thomas with our 18 year old daughter and her friend. It was perfect for everyone. The view from the master bedroom is exactly as the picture shows - same view from living room. It also overlooks one of the pools and MIM's seaside bistro which is literally sea-side dining. The staff were super-friendly and accommodating and the food was amazing! I had the tuna and am craving it now! Guests at Watergate have full access to the Beach Resort down the beach; just a few minute walk in the sand. Iggie's restaurant is very casual with music nightly. Also enjoyable was the Lobster Grille and swim-up bar. We snorkeled at Turtle Cove from Heavenly Days right from the resort – our best day on the island. I recommend renting a car as you will want to check out Magen's Bay for sure and its pristine, crystal clear water. The property to me is in the perfect location. You don't have to leave at all if you don't want, but if you do want to explore, other areas of interest are only a short drive. At the condo, we found available for our use, a few coolers, a boogie board, beach chairs and plenty of beach towels. A few more thoughts - the condo was clean, quiet, the kitchen had everything one could want, the beds were very comfortable, the water pressure wonderful and the sound of the waves at night unbeatable. You won't be sorry if you choose to rent with Earl. – Michelle Barry, Massachusetts
Our villa is a great location for explorers: the nature-lovers paradise of Saint John or the British Virgin Islands is just a quick ferry ride away.
