Overview

Bolongo Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

This tastefully remodeled condominium is a true home away from home. It contains all of the household necessities you will need and more. The oceanfront location allows you to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the waves. One can take a picture of the sunrise without getting out of bed.

It is truly a prime location on the island, since one can spend the entire vacation without leaving Bolongo Bay. Bolongo has three of the most popular restaurants on St.Thomas: Lobster Grill, Iggies, and Mims. Lobster Grill features live music and a romantic ambiance, Iggies has all you can eat days and karaoke nights, and Mims (a family owned and operated authentic caribbean seafood restaurant) serves by far the best lobster on the Island. Bolongo Bay also has its own Diving Club, which provides a full range of services, for example: diving instruction/excursions, snorkeling excursions, and equipment rentals. Additionally on the beach, you can find jet ski rentals and excursions. In addition there is are 2 tennis court, 3 pools, a beach volleyball court, and a small cave for exploring at the Eastern tip of the bay.

There is also a small family operated hotel carrying the name of the Bay, Bolongo Bay and Beach Resort. It is known for hosintg lavish weddings on the beach and planning catamaran trips (boat named: Heavenly Days; docked on Bolongo Bay).

However if you are interested in exploring the rest of the island, you are very close to most points of interest. (see map) Additionally there are ferries which take you to other US and British Virgin Islands from Crown Bay Marina and Red Hook Marina.

About Steven Berdichevsky

We are from New York and feel that our winters have been getting colder, or perhaps we are getting older and more cold intolerant. We found a true second home here on St.Thomas and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. We like ourselves and our guests to be as comfortable as possible. So our place is fully renovated with a brand new kitchen, kitchen appliances, bathrooms, and furniture. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Steven Berdichevsky purchased this condo in 2010

Why Steven Berdichevsky chose Southside

We first came to St. Thomas aboard the Infinity Cruise line. Magens Bay on St. Thomas seemed to be the most memorable beach of the entire trip. We subsequently returned to vacation on the island itself and found beaches far more spectacular than Magens Bay. Our family always seems to forget the camera when we go for vacation, but not when we are on St Thomas.

What makes this condo unique

Let the sun caress your skin and the sand seep between your toes.

Let the island treat you to exquisite cuisine and picturesque views from lofty vistas.

Let the rolling waves hush you to sleep.

Let St. Thomas envelope you in luxury.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awsome!!!

I always read through lads of reviews before making my desitions so here is my contribution:

I must say we really enjoyed our stay.

I am a picky mom of two little boys and we traveled with them. This condo had everything we needed. It took us about 20 minutes to get to the complex from the airport. The owners gave us clear instructions and finding it was easy.

Condo itself: Had a master bedroom with a nice comfortable bed. The second bedroom was perfect for our boys, the two twin beds can be pulled together to make a king-size bed for a second adult couple if needed. tehre were all nesessary pots and pend and utencilas, as wellas a large clean fridge. Everything i needed to cook was there. Overall, the apartment has been completely renovated and has new furniture.

Shopping: A 15 minute drive away, we found this huge supermarket called CostYouLess on rt 38 it has a nice selection and good prices. There is also a movie theatre on the same plaza on rt38.

Beach: we are beach goers and the beach was great. The location is great because its on the carribian sea side. The beach is called Balonga Bay, there are plenty of beach chairs on the beach, they belong to the hotel and outside people are required to pay $5 per chair, but nobody asked us. (there are 2 chairs in the condo if you want to bring your own) Close by there is a beach called Smith Bay, during the week its completely empty and is awsome.

Restaurants: We ended up going to Iggies alot, its right on the beach, has all you can eat nights, its affordable and is very kid friendly, a dinner for 4 cost us $74. Inside the development that the building is in, there is Mim's, its one of the most popular restaurants on the island, the food was pretty good there as well. Also, all the fast food places that we are used to in us are nearby.

We are still excited about our trip and will defientely use this condo again. the owners are very pleasant people to deal with and we loved every minute of our trip.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to St. Thomas to attend a funeral. So of course our visit was a short notice. Steve was very accommodating and sensitive to my needs. The Condo was exactly as pictured. Beautiful. I had some questions before and during my stay and Steve was readily available. I would definitely rent his unit again next time I visit St. Thomas. I will also recommend this to family and friends.

Nice unit but needs some basic TLC

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo complex and we enjoy the view and the proximity to all that the island has too offer. However this unit being very comfortable and well equipped was in need of some basic TLC. Upon arrival we noticed a window screen at the entrance and also a broken one on the balcony.This however was not a problem because the windows in the kitchen and second bedroom were seized shut due to the salt air also both large sliding screen doors are in need of new screens. The sliding screen door in the living room also did not close properly and was very difficult to one and close due to a build up of rust and debris in the track. The clothes washer did not work and the microwave worked once in a while. When we contacted the owner about the problems on Wednesday we were told that maintenance would be contacted,when we left on Saturday we had still not seen anyone. I do not want to come across as a negative report, we did very much enjoy our stay and the unit is very nice just in need of some basic TLC

Owner's Response: We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. As long time owners of this property we have regularly put time and money into renovating the problems that arise with light wear. As much as we strive for perfection the speed with which we can accomplish repairs on the island is not comparable with how fast we could take care of something similar on the main land. Thank you for bringing these issue to our attention. Nevertheless, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had he opportunity to visit St Thomas for a week. We enjoyed the location and tried all 3 restaraunts located in and around the property and they were all very good, Lobster Grille was an excellent night out for my wife and I. We all enjoyed the snorkleing and my 3 kids (12, 10, 8) all enjoyed all the wildlife. The view from the condo is wonderful and the owners were very helpful.

Perfectly Met Our Needs

  • 5 of 5

This condo and the site were perfect for our family's of 5 needs. Recently updated bath and bedrooms, easy access to pool, dining and water sports. View from balcony was spectacular, far enough away from town to be quiet and laidback ... close enough to make an easy run for dinner in Red Hook or an afternoon at Megan's Bay. Steve's help with logistics and getting us situated made it an easy stay all around. Thx.

excellent stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the condo for 6 days in May 2014. We had a wonderful stay! The location was perfect; easy short walk to beach, restaurants and the dive shop. We dove everyday with the st Thomas diving club at bolongo bay and they were great. There are so many good meal choices at the 3 restaurants at bolongo bay- mims, lobster grille and iggys- we really didn't need to leave bongo. The condo was spotless with beautiful views. Would definitely stay at location again!
