Welcome to East End Eden I, our one bedroom, two bath luxury beachfront condominium just steps from the beach at the Elysian Beach Resort on secluded Cowpet Bay. The kitchen and baths were completely renovated in late 2016. The Elysian Beach Resort is conveniently located two miles from the East End town of Red Hook.See Our Property Website Link Below for rate details and more information. One of only two one bedroom condos at the Elysian available for rent (we also own the other, VRBO/HA 3862794), it has a fully equipped kitchen and two full baths. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or a family vacation with 1-2 young children, the condo has everything you need for that special trip. The condo comfortably accommodates 2-4 guests. Located approximately 100 yards from the white sand beach on Cowpet Bay, the condo’s two private balconies offer spectacular views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. The bedroom has a king-size bed with Tempur-pedic mattress, full bath with tub/shower, a private balcony, flat screen LCD TV and DVD player. The living room has a queen-size Murphy bed with a comfortable mattress, a private balcony, TV, DVD player and a stereo with iPod dock. There is a second full bath off the kitchen and a laundry closet with full size washer and dryer.
As our guests, you have access to all of the amenities at the Elysian including the pool with its grotto, waterfall and hot tub, tennis court, and water sport rental shack. There is wonderful snorkeling on the reef immediately offshore in Cowpet Bay. We have several sets of snorkeling equipment in various sizes for our guests to use. Other sets may be rented at the Elysian beach shack. Lounge chairs are provided at no charge on the palm-lined beach, which also has ample shade for those who need it. Beach towels are also provided at no charge from the Elysian. There are two restaurants on the resort property. Sangria's Beachside Bistro offers a more casual menu. The Caribbean Fish Market offers a more upscale dining experience. And pull up a seat for a cool drink at the poolside/beachside bar!
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
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!
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.
The condo was very clean, comfortable, and well-stocked with various extras for snorkeling, etc. The owners were very helpful in answering various questions. We greatly enjoyed the stay, and will likely visit again.
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
The condo is located just 11 miles from the airport and only two miles from Red Hook with its many shops and restaurants. The ferries to St. John and the British Virgin Islands leave regularly from the docks in Red Hook. There are also numerous other recreational opportunities on the East End including deep-sea sport fishing, para sailing, jet skiing, and eco-kayaking. Charlotte Amalie, near the airport, is the main town on the island and is famous as the shopping mecca of the Caribbean.
Other Activities: Shopping, Take a kayaking/snorkeling adventure with VI Ecotours, Visit world famous Magens Bay Beach
