On the southeastern end of St. Thomas, lies the private beach of Cowpet Bay. Our villa is surrounded by lush tropical plantings and has an expansive view of the surrounding sapphire seas and neighboring islands.
Whether you are looking for an intimate island hideaway or a well-situated home base from which to go forth on adventures and exotic explorations, our Cowpet villa is for you. Cowpet's beach offers swimming, snorkeling, sunfish rentals, and kayaking. Chairs and chaise lounges are provided, along with plenty of sun or shade under the palm trees lining the beach.
Our villa is spacious for a couple, roomy for two couples, or well suited for a family of four. The view is sensational! A seaside gallery provides an open-air covered balcony with both outdoor dining for four and comfortable seating from which to gaze out to the scattered islands of St. James, St. John, and Tortola. The British Islands are our neighbors and water taxi services, rental boats, or ferries can easily transport you to their nearby shores.
Cowpet Bay is conveniently located within walking distance to the Caribbean Fish Market, an open-air restaurant on the beach serving breakfast, lunch and dinner and to Sangria's beach cafe. The elegant resort hotel, The Ritz Carlton, is also within walking distance. The nearby village of Redhook is minutes away by car where fishing charters, boat rentals, restaurants, bars, and markets provide access to every amenity. Catch the local ferry departing every hour from the Redhook dock for a day or evening of fun on St. John.
In downtown St. Thomas, the town of Charlotte Amalie located along the waterfront, provides the most exciting shopping in the world where duty-free status affords remarkable pricing for bargain hunters of the finest names in crystal, china, jewelry, watches, cameras, clothing, and more.
A 15-minute drive from Cowpet will take you to the spectacular Mahogany Run Golf Course. Cliff-side tee boxes, tropical forests, lakes, and unparalleled ocean views create a dramatically challenging, 27-hole course for your enjoyment.
We know you will enjoy your island vacation in our spectacular seaside villa.

We love coming to St. Thomas for a bit of wind-down time of fun and relaxation. In addition to our own fabulous beach, our favorite places include the beaches in St. John, Lindquist Bay, a day at Maegan's Bay - followed by a milkshake stop at the dairy on the way out; and a fun-filled day of island hopping and snorkeling by boat which can be rented by the day.
Carla Garcia-Harrell purchased this villa in 1968
Our family has owned our place in St. Thomas since its construction in the late 1960s. Our parents brought us here as children and now we enjoy bringing our children, as well. It has been our home away from home for many years and we have very fond memories of Cowpet Bay and the neighboring smaller islands before they became popular tourist destinations.
We enjoy our own beautiful beach and the wonderful amenities, particularly the restaurant and beach cafe. Red Hook is just minutes away making an easy trip to St. John via ferry.
We loved our stay in Carla's beautiful condo. The beds were super comfortable and the furnishings were great. Loved the architectural details of the building with the arched doors and the big solid bedroom doors. The balcony was super big with the best view. We had a wonderful dinner on the balcony one evening. Did not get to use the bbq grill but would have loved to grill out if we had the time. Marcella the housekeeper was very friendly and accomodating as well. The restaurants in the complex were awesome. The grocery store in Redhook had everything you could want probably twice the cost of the US though. There was another food store west on 32 heading to the airport that I heard was less expensive. The grounds were beautiful the only drawback is they don't have privileges to the pool at the Elysian although our sister was staying there so we piggybacked into the pool with her key. Great pool bar and the bartender David was very informative. The ferry to St John was convenient and well worth the price to visit the island. We took the car ferry and the only caveat is returning you may have to wait since the ferry gets busy at around 4 pm. Would highly recommend Carla's condo and she was very responsive by email if we had any questions, we would love to return if we have the opportunity.
We are so glad we stayed in Red Hook, instead of Charlotte Amalie. This villa has old furnishings and eclectic decor, but was clean, extremely quiet, and has the perfect view from the porch. If you are looking for simplicity and something less expensive, than this place is for you. We were disappointed only one room has an ocean view, but Carla let us know that in advance. We enjoyed the small bit of beach at the base of the villas. The grounds are beautiful. Carla was very receptive to questions with fast responses. The house is set up well for families with children, or a couples getaway like we enjoyed. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Best for families as opposed to romantic getaways.
Me and my husband loved this property it was so close to the beach. We will be going back!!
This was our second time staying in Cowpet Bay and it was lovely yet again. The beach is close by and there are a couple places to eat if you don't want to wander too far away. The condo has everything you need, including a pack and play for younger children. It was very spacious with everything you need. The view of the bay is beautiful and so relaxing to wake up to. Will definitely look forward to coming back next year.
Cowpet is our favorite location to stay on St. Thomas, and this condo is tastefully equipped with everything you need for a stress-free island vacation! This is our second time renting this unit, and it will definitely be at the top of our list the next time we are lucky enough to vacation in the USVI. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. The grounds of the resort complex are beautifully manicured, staff at the nearby restaurant/bar were friendly and helpful with recommendations.
Cowpet is ideally located for those vacationers who wish to visit the nearby restaurants and shops in Red Hook and very convenient for ferry-goers wishing to go to St. John.
Family of 4 greatly enjoyed our stay. I enjoyed watching the boats & sailboats from our great view of the bay. Highest veranda in the complex. Reserved parking spot close by. Highly recommend.
