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....

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very Gracious Owner

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect vacation condo for our family!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Would do it again next week if I could...

  • 5 of 5

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

AMAZING GIRLS TRIP IN PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was everything we imagined and more. The villa is located right on the beach and they have a wonderful pool and lounge area. Upon our arrival the first thing we noticed was the spectacular view of the beach/pool as well as a cute little tiki bar where we enjoyed a lovely dinner. If you walk a little down the shore you will find Another bar and grill - iggys's. The kitchen was squeaky clean! Which was great since we decided to cook almost all of our meals. There was a coffee machine (essential), plates, cups, forks,knives, a dishwasher, as well as many cleaning tools.. Pretty much everything you need in a kitchen. The living room area was super comfortable and the couch was a pull out! There are two rooms, a master bedroom and a smaller room with two twin beds. Both rooms and living room had AC but only the master bedroom had a beach view.No complaints about the bathroom and there was always hot water. This place was very cozy and well maintained. My friends and I are extremely happy about our stay here at Bolongo Bay and we will most certainly be retuning :) !
