Overview

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom + Queen Sleep Sofa, one Bath, Covered Balcony y

Along with its waterfront location and spectacular views, this cozy 1BR condo positively exudes comfort and charm. It was fully renovated and redecorated following a change of ownership in 2011, The result is a compact unit that is bright, airy and inviting - while featuring all the comforts of home.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Situated just above a sandy beach on one side, and a large panoramic pool on the other, the condo is a stone's throw from the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. Views are nothing short of spectacular throughout the entire day.

Our guests begin most mornings by enjoying a beautiful sunrise over neighboring St. John. That experience is soon replaced by a stunning 'down island' view of Tortola and the British Virgin Islands for the balance of the day. After sunset on clear nights, guests can relax with a cocktail on our covered balcony while enjoying a captivating view of 'moonlight on the water'.

Previously part of a bungalow-style tropical hotel known for its charm and character, the condo has been gradually returned to that standard by its new owners. Little more than swimwear and a toothbrush are required to enable guests to immediately relax, unwind and simply enjoy the tropical surroundings. It's just what the doctor ordered for a couple seeking a romantic get-away, or a small family hoping for the vacation of a lifetime(our queen size sofa bed can accomodate children or a third adult).

The Point Pleasant Resort itself features a full range of amenities and activities, not the least of which is one popular restaurant and its three beautiful pools (one of which is located just below the condo's balcony). Excellent snorkeling is available literally steps away at Sugar, Coki and Pineapple beaches. Ocean kayaking, wind surfing, day sail charters, parasailing and jet ski rentals are all less than a five-minute walk away. In addition, Point Pleasant's own scenic hiking trail provides either an excellent workout or just a beautiful stroll for those who are interested.

Another 5 - 7 minute stroll will take you to the Island's renowned indoor Coral World facility. There, you can see a broad range of Caribbean marine life. After exiting Coral World, you are only steps away from the white sands and crystal clear waters of Coki Beach. Take a refreshing swim, enjoy excellent snorkeling or, alternatively, just relax and enjoy lunch or refreshments -- all without ever having to move from your lounge chair.

Our professional managers are available 24/7 to assist with any questions or with booking reservations. Some guests are able to fully enjoy their vacation without having their own transportation, but we recommend that you rent a car for at least part of your trip. You will quickly find that it greatly expands your ability to explore the island's many beaches and other beautiful sites -- not only on St. Thomas, but on neighboring St. John as well.

A day trip to St. John is an absolute must for anyone who visits St. Thomas, and inexpensive hourly ferries (in addition to frequent car ferries) enable visitors to greatly enrich their island experience.

Multiple restaurants of all types are a short drive or taxi ride away, and will surely tempt your taste buds. Alternatively, you are welcome to prepare meals in the unit. All necessary utensils are provided, and any provisions you need are available from nearby stores. If you enjoy fresh fish, many local varieties that have only been 'out of the ocean' for only a few hours are widely available - either in local stores, or simply at roadside stands.

About Property Manager

We are a semi-retired couple living in the Georgetown section of Washington, DC. St. Thomas has truly become our 'second home', and we enjoy spending time in either or both of our side-by-side condos here at the beautiful Point Pleasant Resort. Work permitting, we try to spend up to three months a year here (normally spread over 4 trips). We are happy to have you share either or both of our Condos, and we hope you will enjoy them, just as we do.

Most important during your stay is to simply relax and enjoy both our multi-faceted Island and our fantastic year-round weather. Whatever you choose to do with your time here, we strongly encourage you to dedicate at least one day to visiting nearby St. John. It is 3/4 National Park and is both stunningly beautiful and very well kept. At the same time, it is incredibly peaceful. We often tell friends who visit that 'Whatever drop in pace you experience in coming from your home to St. Thomas, you will experience an equivalent drop when you get off the ferry (either car or passenger), in St. John.'

Our second major recommendation is that you spend a day on the water aboard one of the many day-sail charters that are available. All of them are sure to deliver both a relaxing day and a memorable experience. Our personal favorites are Coconut and Daydreamer, both of which are anchored just off the balcony. Fortunately, we are long time friends with the owners, and they never fail to provide a discount to our guests.

We hope you will enjoy your stay, and possibly come back to visit again. Please feel free to provide us feedback on your stay - either by talking to our Manager, Dionne, or by providing a review via VRBO. In any case, we hope you will truly enjoy both our Island and our home away from home.

Thank you for your consideration!

PS: Our photo was taken a couple years back at the end of a fantastic 3-mile hike on the Reef Bay Trail in St John. We highly recommend it as well.

Property Manager purchased this condo in 2011

Why Property Manager chose East End

Location, location, location - the condo is out of the mainstream on by far the nicest end of the island. We visit a lot ourselves, and we are fortunate enoujgh to own the own the unit next door as well (VRBO #103297). We never cease to be amazed by the unique combination of spectacular views, morning sun, cooling ocean breezes and the seemingly ideal location of our two condos. In addition, for families or friends traveling together, we are very pleased to now be able to provide an opportunity for the entire group to be together in adjoining condos (we even have a door connecting the two patios that remains locked except for such groups - see photo).

View is superior, beds not comfortable

  • 3 of 5

The good: the view is absolutely wonderful, the aquarium and Coki beach are close by. Updated bathroom and kitchen.

Note: Staying through VRBO you will not have access to some of the resort amenities.

The bed was really uncomfortable and lumpy. The sheets for the pullout and main bed mismatched to each other and the bed. Odd size coffee maker with impossible to find filters.

Honest review

  • 3 of 5

The view was great. The one small air conditioner was not adequate to cool room. There was a lot of noise in the morning due to construction. The music on some nights was incredibly loud and lasted until 3am. The couch should be cleaned as it had an unpleasant smell. It would have been nice to have the resort restaurant open, but it was not. The matress is for one, but having two people it tends to sink in the middle.

The resort staff was very nice. The grounds were neat and clean. Overall, we made the most of our time, but it would have been nice to be more comfortable.

Owner's Response: Owner's Response: We thank our recent guests for taking the time to submit a review (despite it's 3-star rating and several negative comments - all of which we disagree with). First, to put the guest review in perspective, it is the worst one we have ever gotten. In fact, it is the only negative review we have received, (and also the only one with less than a 4-star rating). We invite our prospective guests to scroll down further to confirm this for themselves. We take pride in both our condos (we also own the unit next door, VRBO # 103297), and thus we take all guest complaints seriously. As a result, we have elected to respond to each and every concern expressed in the review. First, in that regard, are those three over which we have absolutely no control (construction noise, adjacent restaurant noise and an on-property restaurant that is temporarily closed). A new "Margaritaville" resort has just opened in our bay, and some construction is on-going (limited to Mon-Fri, 8:30 am - 5 pm). This situation is clearly temporary. The "noise" from Margaritaville is occasional quality live music, which contractually ceases by 10 pm. The only other music is a once-monthly, admittedly late-runnning Full-Moon party from Coki Point (which is almost a mile away). Our recent restaurant closing was a shock to all of us, and a re-opening under new management is targeted for November. In the meantime, Margaritaville's restaurant is only a 5-7 minute walk away. The remaining three concerns - none of which were brought to our manager or housekeeper's attention - are addressed below. Not only have we not received a single complaint regarding any of them in the past, I personally spent six nights in the unit only two weeks after these folks departed, and encountered no problems whatsoever. Mattress: The mattress is not "for one" as alleged, but rather is a full queen - as can be easily discerned from the photos on the website (and receipts for bedding, etc). Small Air Conditioner: The a/c unit is just over a year old and is working well. It is the same unit that is in our adjacent condo and easily half of the units at Point Pleasant Resort. Perhaps these guests were not operating it optimally, in which case a call to our staff would have quickly solved the problem. Despite that, we have had it fully serviced post review. Sofa not Clean: Quite the contrary, the sofa was clean with no unpleasant odors (I spent a good amount of time on it during my recen

Great vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time enjoying the island life while staying at this condo. It's a one-bedroom condo, just right for a couple. The kitchen is small, but we made easy meals or went out, so it worked fine for us. It had great views of the ocean. The condo building was at the bottom of the hill making it a short walk to the Panga restaurant down by the ocean or to the lower level pool. We enjoyed the short walk across Pineapple Beach to Coki Beach, where we spent numerous afternoons lounging, snorkeling, and relaxing. The staff at Point Pleasant was very helpful and pleasant. We were able to obtain free snorkel gear for the day at the hotel lobby rather than renting it at the beach. They offered lots of suggestions for whatever we wanted to see, do or eat. The free shuttle service that Point Pleasant offers is a wonderful amenity. We spent way less on taxis and the shuttles than we would have for the car rent. And we didn't have to deal with driving on the left side of the curvy, hilly roads. There is a sahara taxi that drives by the resort every few minutes. It follows a route, which includes Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook and only costs about $2 one way. We did a day trip on the DayDreamer catamaran. Lots of fun! We also took a ferry ride to St. John where we spent a very enjoyable day.
