About Rick Lawrence

We were semi-retired professionals looking for our little slice of paradise. We found it here, we eat a leisurely breakfast most mornings on our deck overlooking the ocean. We are lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the waves. We have lived on island for over nine years now and still find it our slice of paradise.

Rick Lawrence purchased this condo in 2008

Why Rick Lawrence chose Southside

We wanted oceanfront property that had easy access to the beach with nothing to restrict our tropical ocean view. The pool and a short green area and then down the stairs and you are on the beach. We are within walking distance to Iggie's, Mim's and the Lobster Grille. We enjoy going over and meeting friends at Iggie's and just walking home along the beach. Each morning I walk the beach to get my local island paper to enjoy with breakfast.

What makes this condo unique

We live on island year round with our vacation property located in the same complex as our own personal unit. We love the weather, the flowers, the hummingbirds, the bananaquits, the scenery, the proximity of the pool and beach. We still haven't done it all ! So much to see and do and things changing all the time.

Best 5 days ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cute studio condo for 5 days and loved every minute of it. The unit was clean and well maintained and the owners were right next door if needed - but not at all intrusive. After touring the entire island we decided that Bolongo was absolutely the perfect location, lots to do right at the resort but also centrally located. Taxis were easily accessible and we did not at all regret not renting a car.

As a side note, we absolutely loved taking the Heavenly Days Catamaran out for the swim with the turtles...next time (and there will be a next time, soon, I hope) we'll definitely do the all day one.

Comfortable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this studio for the first time; many other trips to the same complex, so we are familiar with the buildings and surroundings. The unit was perfect for my wife and I; sleeping with the doors open to the bay, listening to the waves hitting the beach...awesome. The unit is well equipped, and the owners were very supportive with information and anything we needed. The location is great, with 3 nearby restaurants and good access to the east and St John with a car. We spent many days just relaxing in the unit, on the deck, or at the pool. We highly recommend this unit and owners for a cost effective, relaxing vacation.

We were looking for a quiet get-away for 10 days and could not have chosen a better place. Rick & Linda do a wonderful job thinking about everything you would need for a great stay! They live on the property so contacting them was simple. We did not have a reason to contact them but if we did, they were there.

The unit was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. The view is spectacular. There are wonderful restaurants on the property so, if you wanted to, you would not have to leave. We are planning on returning in the fall and look forward to the same property, maybe their two bedroom because we would like to share it with others.

Thank You Rick and Linda
