About the property

2 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 2-8

In this exquisitely decorated two bedroom condo, each room has a state of the art split A/C unit, ceiling fans, cable TV, IPod docking station and 3 private bathrooms, two bathrooms have walk-in-showers, each bathroom is equipped with a hair dryer. Also: a big bin of water toys, sand & beach toys for the kids to enjoy. The condo contains one king, two queens, one drop-down queen Murphy bed, and a twin inflatable mattress with built in inflate/deflate pump. Central to the condo is a fully equipped renovated kitchen with breakfast bar, dining area, and living room. The condo includes three private furnished balconies with views of beach and ocean.

As a direct guest of the owner (through this website), you will be provided the best rates and a private check-in that allows you to bypass the front-desk process. All linens are provided.

On site amenities include, Tennis, Spa, and the beautiful Elysian Pool and Hot Tub. The resort is just two miles from Red Hook, the center of St. Thomas's popular east end activity and ferry transports to the other nearby islands.

The Resort: Come and enjoy the exclusive and immaculately manicured Elysian Beach Resort where the aqua blue Caribbean water of Cowpet Bay will be ever present in your views from the living room, the bedrooms, or any one of the three private balconies of this exquisite condo.

The Elysian is located just 12.5 scenic miles from the Cyril E. King airport (STT) on the east end of St. Thomas where it rises from its secluded beach to offer a most magnificent setting tucked quietly between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club.

From the moment you enter the resort you will begin to relax as you discover that most all of your vacation needs can be satisfied just steps from the condo door, right on the premises.

If partaking of island rum is on your agenda, visit one of the three resort bars. Make sure to ask for the ever popular 'Pain-Killer' drink invented on the island of Jost Van Dyke - a short ferry ride from Red Hook :)

The Beach and the Elysian Pool and Hot Tub: Enjoy the beautifully secluded white sand beach, where, in the shade of the palm trees, you will find complimentary use of beach furniture and a sports concession stand that offers a variety of water toys such as paddle boats, single and double kayaks, windsurfers, float-mats, and snorkeling gear.

For a change of scenery, with reading material in hand, consider spending an afternoon sitting at the Elysian freshwater swimming pool; one of the most exquisitely designed and landscaped pools on the island, complete with rock grotto waterfall and hot tub.

Relaxing on the beach: Enjoy a quiet day on the beach while watch the iguanas sunbathing.

Start your day with a fresh cup of coffee on one of the three balconies and get started on that book you've been wanting to read! If coffee and a book is not your style, consider a game of tennis on a court surrounded by palm trees.

About Nancy

This Elysian Beach Resort condo on Cowpet Bay Beach is owned by two families who love St. Thomas. We hope to someday spend several months at a time on the island.

Nancy purchased this condo in 2008

Why Nancy chose St. Thomas

After visiting many islands throughout the Caribbean, we settled on buying property at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach on St. Thomas because of the large variety of activities in the area. We choose to purchase on the East End of the island for easy access to the people/car ferry and other boating activities available in Red Hook.

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven stayed the week between Christmas and New Years. The condo was clean, spacious and all amenities to cook meals and wash clothes. It had more than enough room for all of use to sleep. Beach access was very close. On property restaurants and bars were amazing. Pool was very nice, even though the hot tub was broken. We had a blast. Beach was full, but not over-crowded. We never had a hard time getting enough beach chairs for all of us. Close to Red Hook for shopping and dining. Ferry access to St. John was close. No problems at all traveling there. All of Nancy's recommendations for boat charter and car rental were spot on. Would highly recommend.

Pleasant, but a bit lacking . . .

  • 4 of 5

Owner review: Nancy was professional and efficient to work with right from the start. She promptly responded to every one of our emails and was very patient in her dealings with us. We also appreciated her policy of charging the deposit on our cc if and only when it was necessary.

Location of unit in resort and on the island: The Elysian is located in the eastern part of St. Thomas. It is about 20-30 mins by car (depending on traffic) from the hustle and bustle of Charlotte Amelie ("downtown"). It is in the quieter part of the island and just a 5 min drive to Red Hook where the ferry to St. John is located. Red Hook does have a fair amount of dining options if you do not want to make the trek to Charlotte Amelie. We stayed in unit E which overlooks the parking lot, but does have a beautiful view of the ocean beyond. If you want to overlook the pool, then inquire about unit B or C. Unit E is located on the bottom floor of a 3 floor building which in this case means that you will walk down a flight of stairs (2nd floor is the ground floor). There is ample parking so no need to worry about hurrying back from a night out.

Unit E: This unit has a good amount of space with two bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. The living room was spacious enough for my 3 children (5, 8, and 13 years old), and the balcony off this common space was a perfect extension. There is a dining area which felt a bit tight, but we mainly used the counter space so it was not a problem for us. If you plan to stay in most meals then it might get a bit annoying. The kitchen itself is roomy enough that two adults can work comfortably in it. Pots and pans need to be updated as many of them had a great deal of wear and tear (scratches, peeling, and chipping). We also could've used a few extra mugs for our morning coffee and tea. The bathrooms have been updated and were clean and spacious. We do think that toilet paper and paper towels should be provided throughout our stay (owner provides an initial supply). The bedrooms were both spacious, and the beds were comfortable (albeit very high up, you'll see what we mean). Although we tend not to spend as much time watching TV when on vacation at a place like St. Thomas, we will say that the TV units in the bedrooms really need to be updated to flat screens.

Overall, we had a very nice experience staying at the Elysian in Nancy's condo. We would recommend it, but with reservations as we felt that it needed some updates.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Nancy is very easy to work with and everything occurred as planned. The condo was very clean with nice appointments and furniture, large bedrooms, and large bathrooms. The condo's balconies overlook the beach with its 2 restaurants and pool, with the condo is centrally located in the resort, a perfect location. WiFi, cable TV with many channels, and kitchen appliances worked well throughout our stay. The resort is very close to Red Hook with shopping, restaurants, and St. John ferry. A grocery store and parasailing are also close to the resort. A rental car, with driving on the left side of the road, is convenient for getting to the resort, traveling to Red Hook and visiting other sites. If you are planning a vacation in St. Thomas, Nancy's condos are highly recommended. When coming to St. Thomas, we will always stay in one of Nancy's condos. And, of course, the tropical weather was great.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

For the most part the condo is clean. The space is great!I loved where the washer and dryer were located.The view is beautiful!!There were plenty of lounge chairs at the pool and beach. Beach toys are great but a couple of folding chairs for the other beaches would have been an added plus. I wouldn't expect paper products such as toilet paper, paper towels to be supplied for the length of the stay but it would be nice if at least a 1/2 roll of toilet paper would be provided for each bathroom. There were no paper towels at all.If at the last minute I had not thrown a couple of rolls of toilet paper in the suitcase I would have had to go shopping the first thing the next morning after we arrived. The only real negative thing I could see about the condo is that the walls really need to be painted.Some paint and up dated living room furniture would make this condo exceptional.We would rent this condo again.

It is a great place to stay in St Thomas! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay .

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

After checking reviews we decided to go with Nancy's Condos. Nancy is on top of everything and made the arrangements easy. We stayed in Unit E which was immaculate, comfortable and has a great view of the beach. The condo is great with privacy even for multiple couples. The amenities on the resort are great and you should take advantage of the information resources in the main office. The resort has a very nice beach, lots of beautiful Palms and is in a great location close to Redhook and Charlotte Amalie. There are lots of extra little things in the condo available for your use, i.e.. coolers for your day at the beach, an ice machine close by, spices, books, movies in the office, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and working with Nancy and will stay with Nancy's again. Thanks Nancy!

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Nancy's condos several times, and are always happy! Nancy is very easy to work with, very organized, and on top of everything.The condo itself is gorgeous, and is situated in the center of the complex overlooking the pool and beach. Although the resort has a lot of steps, Nancy's condo is ideally located with the fewest steps to the pool and beach. My 92 year old mother had no problem navigating to the beach! The condo is immaculately clean, and well stocked with everything you will need in the kitchen. The rooms are very spacious, so a big family can really spread out and feel comfortable. There is a lovely breeze coming through the condo, since each room has its own balcony overlooking the water. Each room also has its own new high end air conditioner. The resort is very family friendly, and feels extremely safe. Lots of families with kids! There were plenty of lounge chairs at the pool and beach, so we never had a problem getting one no matter what time we went. Folding lounge chairs for the other beaches would have been an added plus, since we had to rent chairs at Coki Beach and Megans Bay, two spots you don't want to miss! It would also be an added plus if paper products such as toilet paper, paper towels and tissues were supplied for the length of the stay (only a starter supply is given). In summary, this condo will definitely exceed your expectations, and is a great place to stay in St Thomas!

Nancy's vacation rentals are located within the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach on the highly desirable East End of St. Thomas, USVI near the village of Red Hook between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club.

I now have multiple vacation rentals at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach, all of which have been upgraded with new kitchens, bathrooms, cabinetry, and air conditioning.

From Beaching, scuba diving, snorkeling, SNUBA, ecotours, sailing, yachting, powerboating, submarining, rafting, jetskiing, parasailing, kayaking, horseback riding, parasailing, duty free shopping, dining (an abundance of excellent restaurants on the island), drinking, fishing, golfing, and tennis ... to visiting Paradise Point, Coral World, the St. Thomas Skyride ... to sight seeing (guided or unguided tours) ... to getting married ... or just relaxing on the condo deck and enjoying the view of the Caribbean Sea.

There is a LOT to do on the islands. Although there are plenty of things to do right on the island of St Thomas USVI, the great thing about being on the East End of St Thomas is that you have the ability to easily get off St Thomas to explore St Johns and the British Virgin Islands! Having been to St Thomas many times, the following remain my favorite things to do. They are not to be missed!

Visit Trunk Bay Beach on St Johns to relax and/or snorkel. To get there, take the Red Hook ferry to St Johns and then grab a cab to Trunk Bay beach.

Take your rental jeep on the car barge (to the left of the ferry terminal) to explore the island of St. John's. Visit the remote beaches on the far side such as Lampshur Bay. Eat at a roadside restaurant.

Rent a powerboat w/Captain in Red Hook and head out to Jost Van Dyke. The captain will help you with the best method to clear British customs. Visit Soggy Dollar Bar and enjoy a Painkiller #5 in White Bay. While there, also visit Ivan's Stress Free Bar and play bartender. Then hop over to Great Harbor to visit world famous Foxy's for another Painkiller! If you have time, get your captain to take you to Little Harbour and enjoy a meal at Sidney's Peace and Love. Make a day of Jost Van Dyke.

Have a Banana Daiquiri at Mountain Top on St. Thomas or enjoy an Adult Flavored milkshake at Udder Delight at the St. Thomas Dairy.

Red Hook is the place to go if you are looking for an evening of fun. This is where you will find the island-style party vibe that captures the whole block. This area offers lots of variety and many options in the way of nightlife. If bar-hopping is your style, this is a stop you don’t want to miss!

Check out Duffy's Love Shack - located in Red Hook Plaza parking lot opposite the Ferry dock.

All beaches in the Virgin Islands are open to the public. Non-hotel guests can usually rent chairs and water sports equipment at beach resorts. There are a LOT of great beaches on St. Thomas.

Out of the 44 beaches on the island, I prefer the beaches that have decent snorkeling, with a bar that serves Painkillers, and iguanas sunbathing. The beach that is right in front of the vacation rental is Cowpet Bay Beach and is a favorite with frequent island travelers.

For your first vacation to the USVIs, I recommend that you limit your island hopping to St. Thomas, St. John, and Jost Van Dyke. It will be all you can do to see and enjoy these islands. After visiting the islands many times over the years, I still enjoy these islands the most.

You will need to visit Tortola to clear British customs in order to go to Jost Van Dyke. While you are in Tortola, it is worth having drinks and lunch at Pusser's Landing.

I HIGHLY recommend you book a boat through John at St Thomas Boat Rental. We, the owners, have rented with him multiple times while in St Thomas and had a fantastic time. John took eight of us wherever we wanted to go and gave us a history lesson along the way. He even picked us up right at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach. We just packed a cooler. He provided snorkel equipment on the boat.

St. Thomas Boat Rental offers you a private boat for the day or half day. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride while St. Thomas Boat Rental’s captain handles the rest. Enjoy the beauty of the Virgin Islands at your pace, on your schedule with St. Thomas Boat Rental.

Walk across the street from the Elysian Beach Resort and set sail aboard The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas' own catamaran, the Lady Lynsey, offering day snorkel sails and sunset sails.

Or, enjoy one of the many charters available at the American Yacht Harbor in the village of Red Hook on the East End of St. Thomas, where you can discover the beauty of the Caribbean Sea as you explore white-sand beaches and snorkel through live coral reefs or 'The Caves' of Norman Island.

There are several island-hopping party destinations that are worth the trip such as any of the many bars on White Bay on Jost Van Dyke; generally rated G - Mild-to-Wild drunken behavior.
