Overview

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Need a break from the daily grind? It's time to reclaim your sanity with a stay at this gem of Caribbean living. With wholesale renovations completed in January 2009, this glimmering East-End unit offers unobstructed and truly stunning views across Pillsbury Sound to Jost Van Dyke, Tortola & St. John. Have your morning coffee on the porch as Caribbean waves roll soothingly into the shore thirty feet below, and watch sea turtles paddle in the bay as lazy iguanas sun themselves in the trees. Take a two-minute stroll down a natural path to a protected beach that you'll usually have all to yourself. Enjoy a short walk for your choice of frozen coladas and a Mahi sandwich at the waterside Panga Bar & Grill. Inside, you'll find furnishings comparable to those at the Caribbean's best 5-star resorts. Outside, it offers breathtaking views and excellent proximity to spectacular beaches & many local attractions.

This property is a private residence within a gated resort located approximately five minutes northwest of Red Hook. From the balcony, even the athletically challenged can toss a stone into the blue-green waves of Water Bay, which roll into shore 30 feet below. Many listings exaggerate their unit's proximity to the water. This one is the real deal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Really enjoyed staying at this unit, which is in the best possible location at the resort. Could practically fish off the deck if I wanted to, the waves were almost right underneath us. And the resort's beach, though small, was awesome and usually empty - it was like we had our own private beach for a week! Interior was as described--clean, well-stocked and modern. Looking forward to coming back next year.

Oh goodness. This place is amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to begin with this rental. It is simply amazing! We traveled with my little family (2 adults one 3 year old) to the VI for Christmas this year and it was perfect. The amenities are good - big shower (all the towels you will ever need), big comfortable bed (and a pull out bed to boot), kitchen table, stove top, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, dishes, flat screen TV....HUGE windows!!!!!! Honestly, they were open the whole time we were there - the view is worth every stinking penny!! I spent so much time on the deck, I contemplated sleeping there. We spent time at the nearby Lindquist beach - you have to pay a little, but there are no cruise ship tourists there (worth it!!). Coki beach was a little crowded, as was Magens bay (go early, before the tourist buses arrive and you will be great) but the little beach on the property proved to be nice for short trips to the beach. There is grocery shopping within a 10 minute drive in both directions (Red Hook a little more expensive). Ben was awesome to work with, and there was even a little Christmas tree in the room for us - such a nice added touch!! If you go here, you will not be disappointed. There are three pools on the property, which were nice if you didn't want the beach. The on-site restaurant was closed for renovations when we were there, but not a big deal. If you have a hard time with hills or stairs, this property could be challenging. But if you have a car it's no big deal. I loved hiking the stairs every day for exercise. I would recommend renting a car on the island, unless you really like to walk. Overall, I hope to visit this place again - It was a true joy! My 3 year old keeps asking when we can go back to St. Thomas.... :) Success!!

The Views are Indescribable!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated a milestone birthday in St. Thomas and had the pleasure of staying in this condo and it was PERFECT!! The condo has everything that you will need, clean, updated, comfortable...My zen, was the porch!! To open the slide glass doors and have an open view was breathtaking. We didn't want to leave, it was a perfect condo, a perfect vacation. Ben was awesome, accommodating and promptly responded to ALL of my questions :)

Thanks Ben for allowing us to stay in your piece of paradise, you must include a panoramic view/video of the porch, words just simply can't describe the beauty!

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this Condo and had a great time. It was beautiful, well decorated, comfortable, and we loved hanging out on the balcony with the great view. This was my first time using VRBO and I was slightly concerned because there were no recent reviews, but I was not disappointed. There were tons more amazing reviews in the guest book on the coffee table in the living room. The location was great and it was easy to to get to lindquist beach/smith bay park and coki beach, st john ferry, secret harbour beach/bar, and some nice/reasonably priced restaurants in red hook. We enjoyed cooking breakfast and packing lunch to bring to the beach every day, which saved alot of money. It was nice to have access to the beach chairs, cooler, and snorkel gear. We enjoyed the on-site spa (point wellness) and pool on our last day, but didn't care for the on site restaurant Panga. The only time we had to drive more than 5 minutes was the the airport, charlotte amalie, and magens bay. I would definitely stay here again!

WOW is the only way to describe the view from this unit. It’s breath taking

  • 5 of 5

WOW is the only way to describe the view from this unit. It’s breath taking. Everything you‘ll need to spend the day at the beach is inside the condo beach chairs, cooler, snorkel gear and towels. If you are unlucky enough like us to have stay in due to rain storm during the evening don’t worry there is everything you need to make some painkillers cook a meal and listen to some music, I do advise bringing an auxiliary cable if you have a newer iPhone model . The condo is impeccably clean and well maintained; sugar beach is less than a minute walk from the condo also Panga’s and one of the 3 pools are within 2 minute walk. The staff that runs the Point Pleasant property now is extremely helpful as I just found out upon arrival they just took over on April 1st 2014. They assisted us with grocery shopping and even picking us up a few times from the red hook area. They operate a shuttle starting from 8am the latest we called for was around 8pm so not sure till what time the shuttle runs. Also they will pick you up from your condo and take you wherever they can drive within the property if you do not feel like walking or have limited mobility. Now about the booking process Ben was extremely helpful and it was very quick and simple no hassles. What you see in pictures does not do the condo justice really. It is closest to red hook out of all the areas to hang out and taking the ferry over to St. John is very easy. Also if you have any activities planned for early in the morning arrange your taxis the day ahead. I stayed for 4 nights with my 2 sisters and as you know us women can over pack. There was enough room for all our things. I will definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you for an amazing stay!!

Heaven.

  • 5 of 5

Words really are not enough to describe this property. My husband and I have come to the condo for two consecutive years - both were nothing short of fantastic vacations. The condo itself is situated in perhaps the most perfect location in Point Pleasant. The last condo before the path to the private (no one ever there) beach, Sugar Bay. The views are amazing and the perfect way to start and end your day. The water and it's constantly varying colors are so close you could touch them. The condo is renovated and impeccably maintained. Deliciously comfortable bed, flawless bathroom, updated kitchen - I could go on and on. Additionally, all of the small details are attended to - from the blender down to the straws for the pina coladas or pain killers. There is even snorkeling gear and beach chairs, coolers, etc for guests. Red Hook is a 5 minute drive - full size grocery store - less than 10. Bar, restaurant, pool, even a sailing charter are all accessed from reception or Panga's. Ferry to St. John and BVI just around the corner. If you are looking for a quiet time in a serene setting, look no further - this is it. If you're looking for a fun place to play and shake your rump in Red Hook - this is it. A more relaxing place to work / write - whatever - the wireless internet is available and works well. Whatever your mood - this is heaven. We hope to continue to come back year after year.

Besides, what's not to love about a place where you don't need heat or air conditioning and the only sounds you fall asleep and wake up to are the sounds of the waves hitting the shore?

Best view in the islands with great attention to detail on he inside!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this property several times and love it! First of all, the pictures of the condo do not even do it justice. The place is impeccably furnished, and it feels fresh, clean, and very recently renovated. We loved the river stone flooring in the shower and the shower had a wide shower head as well and the sink is a modern glass vessel sink. Although the bedroom is not a separate room, the sleeping alcove is great because you can see the lovely views while lying in bed. The king size bed is very comfortable and the linens are good quality. Our favorite thing to do is to sit on the terrace and enjoy the nice breeze. The sunrises are beautiful and the terrace is in the shade after 10:30 am. We loved the small Sugar Beach which is only a few minutes down the path from the condo. The beach has nice sand and there are hardly any other people using it. The location is convenient to Red Hook, Lindquist Beach, Sapphire Beach and Coki Beach, which is walkable. We have stayed all over the Caribbean, and this is one of our favorite spots to relax and feel at home in wonderful surroundings. The pools also have great views. The kitchen has everything you need and it was a pleasure to be able to prep coffee, breakfast and snacks there. The location is also a great launching point to explore St. John and BVI. There are several boat companies operating charter's right from the bay below the condo and the St. John ferry is only 5 minutes away. We are going back for our 5th stay in a few months and can't wait!
