Return to Paradise
Stayed at Cowpet Bay about 30 years ago. Decided to come back. Sophia's condo was perfect for what we needed. Bed was very comfortable. Condo had a Microwave, toaster oven, fridge, and dish TV. There were plenty of beach and bath towels. Two minute walk to a beautiful beach. No matter what time we went to the beach there was always plenty of lounge chairs in either sun or shade. Several restaurants on site plus by the pool was a bar and food cooked on a grill. Prices were very reasonable. Loved the area of the island. ton of things to do in Red Hook. Took boat tour to Virgin Gorda and Yost Van Dyke. Sophia's price was very reasonable and allows you to spend more on fun things. Would recommend this rental to anyone who wants to stay in Paradise for an affordable price.
Suite on the beach, Paradise!
Full disclosure, I've been friends with Sophia for 15 years but I think that makes me extra-qualified to speak to what a great host she is!
Recently, rented her room for a stay in St. Thomas. The photos don't do it justice! The unit is right on the beach, just a short walk through the condo gardens and down some steps and you have a drink in your hand and sand in between your toes!
The beds is really comfortable and the King can be split into two singles which worked well for my Mom and I during our visit. There is AC but we really didn't need it, the unit stays cool. Sophia provided plenty of towels for both the bathroom and the beach.
The beach had several restaurants and a bar as well as chairs and a shower station to rinse off. We had a great time and can't wait to come back!
We recently stayed at this property (May 2015). We met Sophia when we checked in, she was very nice and accommodating about giving us the key. The room was clean and had everything you could need (shampoo, towels, air conditioning). We had not planned on spending much time in the room and we didn't- a few hours each night to sleep. There's so much to see on the island and with the beach a few hundred yards away there's really no reason to be in the in the room. The beach was really close, right down the walkway and around the front of the building. Plenty of chairs and a small bar/restaurant. Parking at the condo wasn't an issue, there are several guest spots or you can park in the assigned spot for the room.
The only downside I will point out is that the walls are very thin so you can hear the noise from next door. I wouldn't let this deter you. For the price, cleanliness and location it really is a good deal. Happy travels!
Great place, lovely host!
This is a great little studio on the ground level of a condo complex that is right on the beach. It shares a beach with The Elysian, so you have access to all of those amenities, such as restaurants, beach chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, and other rentals. It's also a 3 minute walk to the Ritz Carlton, which has some great dining and drinks (I recommend the ginger martini!), as well as a taxi stand that we used. It's a 5 minute drive from Red Hook, where there are lots of dining options and the ferry to St. John. Everything was clean and to our liking. Sophia was also an awesome and very accommodating host. If you don't need a place where you plan on spending much time inside, you can't beat this for the hospitality and the price!
Steps away from The Ritz Carlton and Elysian Resorts providing a choice of five different restaurants and four beaches. Cowpet Bay East is also five minute drive from Red Hook that has great shopping and an abundance of restaurants and bars. Other Activities: we offer kite boarding, wind surfing and sailing lessons
