Overview

St. Thomas Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio with King Bed, sleeps 2

Enjoy the view of Cowpet Beach and Bay in the Caribbean from your own private balcony, or even from the room itself, located at Wyndham’s Elysian Resort. There you can relax, unwind, take in the extraordinary, soothing beauty and consider the opportunities before you. We are in a prime location, between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club ten miles from the airport on the east end of the island.

Do you need extreme relaxation? You don’t have to leave the Elysian – everything you need is right on site! Here you’re not a prisoner of the resort, but you may simply choose to spend most of your vacation on premises!

It’s an easy walk from our unit to our beautiful, fully outfitted palm treed white sand beach for swimming, resting, sunbathing, and snorkeling. You’ll also find right next to the beach a beautiful landscaped pool with hot tub, two fabulous beachside restaurants, three bars, fitness room, spa, water sport rental shack, tennis court and sundries store.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Clean and conveinent to beach - not far from Red Hook Ferry Docks

  • 3 of 5

The Room is basically a standard hotel room with a balcony so calling it a "villa" is a bit of a stretch. It was clean but very modestly equipped with a microwave, small cooler, and a coffee maker. Bathroom could use a little maintenance. The distant view of the bay is correctly shown but the immediate view below the balcony is a parking lot. This is NOT a place for anyone with a walking restriction as it two flights of stairs down to the room from the parking area and another three flights to the pool / beach level. The pool area is spacious and not crowded. The Caribbean Fish Market restaurant has excellent food but reservations are necessary. Taxis are readily available and the staff is friendly.

Owner's Response: I appreciate that these Guests took the time to Review the property.I think the comments are accurate for the most part, but I do feel the need to respond and emphasize some things. I describe the rental to potential Guests as follows: “Our unit consists of a hotel style room with a King bed, small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. We have a great view of the Caribbean from the inside and the balcony, AC, a full bathroom and cable TV. We also provide internet (DSL) for our Guests.” I provide a Video of this room. I am genuinely sorry if despite all this information our Guest was disappointed in the “modestness” of the room. I NEVER would intentional misrepresent our Condo, which is nice enough to not need that. S/he notes the room was clean but the bathroom could use “maintenance”. We are obsessed with cleanliness/quality throughout and I wish the Guest would have revealed the maintenance s/he notes. I explicitly request the following in my arrival instructions: “... Settle in and check that everything is ok. All should be in good order, but our housekeeper will return if anything needs attention. Also if anything comes up along the way please let us know immediately. We will want to tend to it immediately both for your comfort, and for our future guests…” I am puzzled by the “View” comments. - First, we send a Video showing everything, including the View. This Video clearly shows the parking lot and the beautiful beach and bay the Guest characterizes as “distant”. What it is is clear in the Video. - I have never thought myself, nor has any of hundreds of Guests ever referred to it as “distant”. It is about 50 yards away +/-. Guests (many returning) over and over reference that they love our “postcard view.” - The parking lot is visible from our unit, but you must make an effort to see it if you are sitting on the balcony or in the room. The View is overwhelmingly beautiful Caribbean Beach and Water. (The restaurants and services beachside are very good and island residents and Guests at other resorts drive in, and they park next to the restaurants. We were there in December and due to my wife’s health/mobility situation we drove the 10 seconds from our unit to the beach, and I was happy to have a place for my car.). Likely I am overreacting as we are obsessed with doing all we can to help our Guests have a great time, a that didn’t jump out in this Guest’s comments. I am really sorry for that.

Nos encantó la estadía. El único problema fue llegar porque llegamos de noche. Pero marcamos la dirección en el gps y después no tuvimos problemas. El resort es bonito, bien preparado, todo estaba limpio. Tenía necesitas de playa, flotadores, snorkel, chancletas para utilizarla, aunque nosotros nos llevamos las nuestras y no las utilizamos. Excelente para ir con la familia.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lot of the outdoors on St. Thomas and St. John so we did not spend a large amount of time in the room. But the room was perfect for that. It is extermemly convenient to Red Hook and all the dining and ferries. The pool, grounds and beach at the resort was lovely. I would LOVE to stay there again.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect! I was born on St. Thomas and now live in WV. This was my husband's first time on St. Thomas. And it was a perfect vacation. The condo is clean, everything worked and the balcony is a perfect place for coffee in the morning and a relaxing drink in the evening. Paul was wonderful and easy to make the arrangements with and everything he said was spot on. We will be back soon!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had an amazing and relaxing time. The apartment was clean and very nice. We loved the balcony with an ocean view! Beach is beautiful. Picture doesn't do it justice. Making arrangements with Paul was extremely easy and everything went as we had agreed on. Would definitely recommend. Thank you :)
