Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I just returned from here yesterday and had such an AMAZING time! The condo was perfect - Point Pleasant is a wonderful location, slightly off the beaten path with the most down to earth, fun staff and beautiful scenery. We attended a wedding at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef, which is referred to as one of the nicest hotels on the island, but we were so glad we stayed here instead. The condo was so much nicer than staying in a hotel room, we felt we were truly guests of the owners and were really taken care of. They are very thoughtful with the amenities that are provided and do have a beautiful place. We would most definitely stay again. If you stay here though you simply MUST book a day sail on the Morningstar - just go down to Fungi's and book it at We Be Jammin' - you will not regret it!

Happy Travels!

this place is better than expected

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Point Pleasant was amazing. The view from the condo was spectacular. The condo itself was very clean and enjoyable. It was well kept and tidy and we had full access to the pools. There were also different beaches nearby. The kitchen was small but had everything we needed including the necessary plates and silverware. The balcony had chairs and a small table with a beautiful view. The bathroom was very clean and the A.C. worked well. It was never too hot in the condo, because of the ocean breeze. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this condo for anyone looking for a fun getaway. Special thanks for the manager of the condo who helped us with our lost packages at USPS. The island has small markets where we bought delicious fresh fish and local grown fruits. If you are organic, non GMO food eater you better shop at local small markets, which are everywhere on the island. Do not shop at grocery stores. The atmosphere in the resort is very quiet and not crowded at all. Sometimes we had the entire resort beach or pool all to ourselves. I would definitely recommend this condo for couples any age and families with kids who are tired of fast pacing everyday life.

Thanks to owner Jacques for an excellent place for an excellent price.

Amazing View!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for an entire week with 2 teenagers. Pull out sofa bed was fine for them. Bed very comfortable. Blowup mattress,we were unsure of how it worked as there were no directions. Grill was missing from our balcony but this was the property managers job to discover before we got there (so we cooked steaks on the stove). Water will go away for several hours in the morning as well. We didn't mind these things as Jean-Pierre was AWESOME from start to finish.

We loved everything and look forward to coming back as just a couple. Thank you so much.

Wonderful Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

My Fiance and I stayed at the condo for a week. We had the time of our lives visiting the island! The condo was clean and comfortable. Although we did not use the items in the condo it appeared well stocked with pots, beach chairs, snorkel gear, cooler, etc. I can't imagine having a better experience staying at a hotel on the island we would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I rented this condo for a week vacation and we could not have had a better experience. The condo was a perfect size, comfortable and stocked with tons of information about the island. The view from the balcony was beyond beautiful and the three pools and tiny private beach area were very clean and perfect for relaxing all day in the sun! We ate lunch one day at Jack's restaurant, right on the water, and the food was great and the view was even better. We could have spent all day just pool hopping and exploring in Point Pleasant itself. It was very easy to walk across the beach over to Coki Beach, just across the bay, as well as catch a $1 safari cab into Redhook. I would definitely love to return here as the owners really do a nice job of making sure their renters are equipped with all of their vacation needs! We were honestly sad to leave!
