About Richard Simnett

We are a NJ family and have been coming down to St Thomas since our children were little. We share this paradise with our family and now we'd love to share it with yours.

We're a semi-retired couple with two grown children who help us manage this rental.

Enjoy our condo paradise!

Kind Regards,

Richard, Ursula, Carolyn and Rick

Richard Simnett purchased this condo in 1988

Why Richard Simnett chose East End

Ease of access - accessible to even the handicapped. Our parents were getting older and needed a vacation home that was close to the beach and friendly on the knees - my father in law could hardly walk, but he could make it the few flat steps to the beach from this rental.

Beauty - the water is so clear we can see our feet.

Fun for the kids - our children begged to go back every year, no matter what age.

What makes this condo unique

Convenient - 2 minute walk to the beach

Easy Recreation - Swimming pool and tennis courts on the property

Our favorite ritual is a morning walk on the beach, enjoying the fresh sea breeze and the white sand on our feet.

Clean, safe, beautiful and easy!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in a few other units at Crystal Cove in the past, but this one was our favorite. Clean, large, updated kitchen and living room areas with modern appliances. Two fill LARGE bedrooms, three full bathrooms - it just can't be beat. On-site attention by Norma the property manager was top notch, friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this unit for a safe, friendly, quiet family stay!

Beach style comfort

  • 3 of 5

The condo provides plenty of space for a family. We enjoyed our stay and loved the location. The condo itself is great for low key people who don't fuss too much about up-to-date appliances or furniture. The beds were comfortable and linen clean. The floors, walls, bathrooms and living room furniture left a lot to be desired in terms of cleanliness but we were able to enjoy ourselves none the less.

Beautiful Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was much more then we expected! It has two bedrooms of good size, and the king size bed has two small trundel's under it. The sofa has a sleeping pad on it, and we found it comfortable. The view is amazing, and the walk to the beach is perfect. Sidewalks all the way down to the most beautiful beach! The distance from the beachgoers was perfect. There was nothing lacking in our stay, and I would be most pleased to visit again!!

As I look out on paradise found from the condo .

  • 5 of 5

This place is quite large and beautiful inside. The pictures of the unit do not do it justice. We loved it and were very impressed by Norma , the caretaker, who was a joy to meet and deal with.

I also hesitate to tell people how great this place is because I want to come again. As Richard advised us we brought food, meat , breakfast items etc. and saved ourselves a bundle. Our trip to St Thomas was made so much more enjoyable due to Richard and Norma working with us so willingly when we had to make changes in our travel plans.

What a wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

I write this review sitting in the condo looking at a picture postcard of what the Carribean is supposed to be! I also write with trepedation, since I don't want demand here to be so great that we can't get back!!

The eye-popping first impression as you enter the door of this property was a joy to behold. It is just as the pictures in the listing show, only better! The warmth of the island contact that Richard uses (Norma!) was just a joy. The fact that she was so helpful and willing to spend time with us outlining the island attractions was an unexected pleasure.

I also should note that when we encountered travel difficulty, Richard was so willing to do everything he was able so as to help us have this terriffic vacation.

To be fair, there were a couple of minor items that we encountered, but the owner/overseerer addressed our minor issues immediately. Absent those minor things, this was perfect! Frankly, I'd rather be here that at the Ritz.

We've used VRBO several times over the years, and we have been lucky to encounter so many folks at their best. What a wonderful way to see the world!
