Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Watch stingrays jump out of the water or iguanas sunning on the rocks below the private balcony spanning the water-side of the condo and accessible from the living/dining room and master bedroom. The sunrise is magnificent from the balcony and a great place for a slow and relaxing breakfast.

The swaying palm trees, the lush local flora and sail boats floating in the bay help you to take that deep breath and 'relax'. The condo is part of the Watergate Villas East condo association and the two completely separate bedroom/bath combinations is perfect for two couples or a family to share.

Bolongo Bay has a wonderful blend of tranquility and action with a relaxed ambience perfect for vacations, holidays and weddings. Three beachfront restaurants are a short walk from the condo, including the famous Iggie's. The Bolongo Bay Beach Resort is just a short walk down the beach and has all the water activities and toys for rent that you could possibly want -- sailing, jet skiing, kayaking, parasailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, etc.

Or just enjoy the shared pools of the three sister condo associations available to our guests--Watergate Villas' is beside the Caribbean Sea and is a short walk from the condo, Sea Cliff Villas' overlooks the Caribbean Sea to the east for a wonderful view of the sunset and the cruise ships leaving Charlotte Amalie, and Regatta Point's is at the very top of the hill for lots of sunshine and tropical views.

The condo is furnished with wicker and rattan furniture and features a fully-equipped kitchen and all the amenities you may need for your vacation. Fully air-conditioned if you wish, or feel like a true resident of the Tropics by letting the Caribbean sea breeze from the soft tradewinds blowing direct from Portugal caress you each day and lull you to sleep each night.

With the added airline costs for bags, pack less and use our in-condo washer and dryer. If you want suggestions, we have a condo guestbook providing instructions for all condo amenities as well as favorite restaurants, beaches, snorkeling, scenic, picture-perfect views of Paradise, etc.

We love our Condo and sharing it with our family and friends. We hope you enjoy our Caribbean Paradise as much as we do.

About Nikki Graham

We live in South Point, OH, which is the southern-most point of Ohio on the Ohio River across from West Virginia and Kentucky. In our spare time, we have designed and built six homes. After we bought our condo, Ed served on the condo association board because we wanted the opportunity to help the association improve the property and ensure the quality of our new vacation home. The condo association property is very tropical and beautiful and the infrastructure is outstanding and well-maintained. Because we want to make sure your vacation is the best ever, we are available by e-mail or cell phone anytime to answer any question.

Nikki Graham purchased this condo in 2003

Why Nikki Graham chose Southside

In 1998, while on a cruise, we discovered and fell in love with snorkeling and Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas. The beautiful colors of the waters, the white buildings and red roofs and of course, the beautiful fish fulfilled the dream of Paradise. We enjoyed several more cruises through the years, but wanted to spend longer on the island. So in 2002, we decided to spend a week on St. Thomas. That is when we found Bolongo Bay with not only condos right on the water, but restaurants, pools and a beach within walking distance. We found our condo in Paradise in 2003 and now we can just walk down to snorkel our bay.

What makes this condo unique

From our balcony, we can watch the sunrise, weddings on the beach, sailboats, catamarans, jet skis and hobie cats plying the beautiful blue waters, cruise ships leaving at night like a small city with all the lights on, falling stars, stingrays jumping out of the water, flying fish skimming the bay, pelicans soaring past and diving into the water, hummingbirds & sugarbirds & banana quits gorging on nectar, palm trees swaying in the breeze and because of that breeze we are never bothered by insects. Bolongo Bay is situated half-way between Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook so we have a multitude of choices for shopping and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just want to say how much we enjoyed your condo on St Thomas and really appreciate your allowing us to get in early on Wednesday. The unit is lovely and was very comfortable for the four of us. A nice location and a lovely view. We hope to go back in the future and we just hope your unit is available at that time. Your information package was outstanding and very helpful.

Paradise Found? Definitely!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had an amazing trip to St. Thomas. Paradise Found is a great condo. Clean, updated, so comfortable. We loved having 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a TV in each room. My daughter is a bit of a princess and doesn't like to share! Nikki gives so many invaluable tips in her condo book and welcome letter. It helped us to plan our daily activities and must-sees. It was great to be right on the beach and have the pool so easily accessible. Iggies restaurant was our go-to for fish tacos (the best!!) and evening entertainment. We hit 6 beaches and 4 shopping areas for the week. Everything fell together so well. The only advice I would give is make sure you get to the airport 2-3 hours in advance. We missed our flight as we got to check in 59minutes before take off and they wouldn't let us through. Needed another night in St. Thomas. But, Nikki to the rescue. No one was coming after us . I called and she allowed us to stay another night.

GREAT STAY IN PARADISE!!!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this condo. The owner was wonderful to work with, including condo book and welcome letter that helps with restaurants and shopping. The condo is very clean and has everything you need there.

The view of the bay is fantastic and having several restaurants close by also. Iggie's had some type of entertainment nightly, fun place and good food. I didn't rent a car but wish I had, to explore the island more. The taxi's were available anytime with no problem. Hope to be back soon!! Elaine (Ohio)

The view from the condo is beautiful!!

  • 4 of 5

We had 3 wonderful nights at the condo. Nikki was fantastic about quickly answering my emails/questions before we arrived which was SO helpful. Their welcome letter explained everything really well and made it so easy to move right in and start enjoying the beginning of our vacation. The view from the kitchen and porch was breath taking. I wish I could be looking out over the bay/water right now!

It was a nice area ~ close to everything, good restaurants in walking distance or an easy drive, the pools were nice, a grocery store was 5 min away, we did rent a car which allowed us to explore the Island, the beach was a bit of a disappointment but there were lovely beaches close by, the condo was very comfortable and had everything that we needed and we would go back.

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

Nikki and Ed's Belongo Bay condo is beautifully situated between Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the waves. Fully equipped kitchen and beach towels, chairs, and snorkeling gear available. They left much helpful info regarding the accommodations and the island. Highly recommend it and would definitely stay again.
