About Sue and Bruce Davis

We live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We first visited St. Thomas in March 2007 and immediately fell in love with the Island. After two more trips, all of which were spent at the Elysian Beach Resort in a colleague's condo, we decided we needed our own place. We purchased a 2 bedroom unit in 2009 (VRBO # 231249/HA #241811) and we've had so much fun meeting new guests (if only by phone or email)and helping them have a great Caribbean vacation, that we decided to buy a one bedroom/two bath unit in 2010. In 2014 we purchased a second one bedroom/two bath unit(HA/VRBO #3862794). Eventually we intend to spend large portions of our retirement years in our condos, but for now we enjoy frequent vacations there and helping create memorable vacations for our guests.

Sue and Bruce Davis purchased this condo in 2010

Why Sue and Bruce Davis chose St. Thomas

From the moment we set foot on Cowpet Bay Beach at the Elysian Beach Resort we could feel the tensions leave us and we knew that this was the place we wanted to own a vacation home. St. Thomas is a US territory and easily accessible from the East Coast and most of the mainland US. The seclusion of Cowpet Bay and the gentle waves make it ideal for relaxing and recharging! But if you want an active vacation there are so many great beaches on St. Thomas and nearby St. John and the variety of restaurants on St. Thomas is amazing for an island that is only about 38 square miles. In short, we found our East End Eden so we decided to buy a condo or three!

What makes this condo unique

For less than the price of many hotel rooms on island you can relax and spread out in our one bedroom/two bath condo with all the comforts of home.

This well maintained condo was very roomy and stocked with everything you would ever need.

  • 5 of 5

We loved that our private beach and beautiful pool and 2 restaurants were less than 100 yards from our condo. Our rented jeep was conveniently parked outside our door. The owners were wonderful to work with and sent a very informative letter prior to our stay. We highly recommend this home away from home.

Wonderfull and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time both in the condo and the resort. Everything was clean, the beach was wonderful. Service was great at all of the restaurants and the pool bar too. For a short stay you would never have to leave. Plenty of bars, and restaurants down the road at Red Hook. (A short drive) We rented paddleboards, and kayak and had a blast. The water was very clear and clean! I would come back! Mike O

lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo at the Elysian Resort in January 2016. It was perfect for my husband and I. Lovely furnishings with a full kitchen with anything you would need if you wanted to cook in. There was everything we needed including snorkeling gear, coolers for the beach and even pool floats. The resort and beach are very nice with two wonderful restaurants on site. Would highly recommend either dining option. The condo was very clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. The pool is very nice and the pool bar even better! We really could not have asked for more.! We loved sitting and having coffee on the patio each morning while watching the ferrys go by. I would highly recommend staying here. The location is 5 minutes to Red Hook and the St. John ferry.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Elysian! Great location. Just 5 minute taxi ride to Red Hook. The restaurants on site were awesome. The beach bar was a fantastic place to grab a drink, chat with Dave and they even grilled up some burgers and such! Sangrias...oh my the fish tacos! The Carribean Fish Market was one of our favorite meals while we were on St. Thomas. The staff was so friendly here. Great service every time!

Our condo was just what we needed! The owners were so nice to send us helpful hints and things to do while we were there. Also, we really liked that they had great snorkel equipment we could use. That way we didn't have to rent cheap gear everywhere we went. Our favorite was of course Trunk Bay on St. John!

A special thank you to Bruce and Sue! We were stranded in St. Thomas due to the snow up north and Bruce called us and gave us information on where else we could rent since the next renters were already on the island. I thought that was so nice to care about us and making sure we found another place.

I would definitely rent this condo again! I just wish we could go back next week!

Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay in Bruce and Sue's condo and would not hesitate to request another week at another time. The condo was in excellent condition and we did not lack any essentials while spending the holidays. We also feel the Elysian is an excellent facility in a very nice part of the island.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful condo that provided all amenities to live there full-time! Beach is beautiful, restaurants and pool bar are great as well. Very good snorkeling to the left side of the bay along the rocks and coral... LOTS of fish as well as an octopus. An easy walk to the Ritz-Carlton to rent their sailboats and snorkel a different bay. We opted not to rent a car, and had Joseph Thomas (taxi- maroon van) haul us around during the week. What a great guy... very knowledgeable and accommodating. Be sure to go into Red Hook and take the ferry to St. John for a day of sailing and snorkeling over there on the Island Spirit (leaves from the Westin Resort). Again, I can't say enough of how nice the condo was and what a great week we had!
