About The Owner

Grew up vacationing in St Thomas so great familiarity with the area. Currently residing with husband, 18 year old son and 2 cattle dogs in Pittsburgh but love to return to the Caribbean as much as possible.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1968

Why The Owner chose St. Thomas

My parents vacationed on St Thomas. Loved it and eventually bought at Cowpet Bay. Cowpet is on a lovely part of the island- next to the Ritz Carltonand minutes from the town of Red Hook where there are restaurants, shopping and the ferries to St John and British Virgin Islands.

What makes this condo unique

Relaxing on the veranda is a favorite. Watching activity at the St Thomas Yacht Club. Watching the sun rise or the moon shining over the bay. It's all about the view- binoculars incuded! The ultimate R'n R!

Perfect Location! Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our college-aged daughter and niece, stayed at Connie's condo for 10 days. We were everywhere on the island during our vacation and each day, we commented how Cowpet Bay was the perfect location. The bay is beautiful, the 1 minute walk to the beach is easy (you do have to be able to go up and down quite a few stairs) and the 5 minute drive to Red Hook, with its nice variety of restaurants, bars, grocery stores (go to Moe's - they have everything you may need), and easy access to the St. John Ferry, was great. Also it is not a very far drive to 2 of STT most popular beaches, Sapphire and Magen's Bay. The condo is very clean, comfortable and well-appointed, and literally has everything you might need. We felt right at home the minute we walked in. Spent most of our time at the condo sitting on the large balcony enjoying the view of the bay and all the ships. The condo development does not have a pool but we truly did not miss having one at all - not with the beach a minute down the hill. Plenty of chairs on the beach, too - never a problem to get one. There are also 2 restaurants on the beach, as well as a small water sports concession (can rent snorkels, etc.). Highly recommend this condo and we would definitely stay here again!! Thanks Connie!

Cozy & Private Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year I've gone down at stayed at Connie's place for Easter - and it's wonderful! The condo is spacious with plenty of room for 4. Views are spectacular and ocean breezes are lovely. The beach is also top-notch for STT!

Highly recommend this condo - great owner / property manager and if there are any issues while in the islands, she has a wonderful lady named Patsy who can help!

Great condo, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a really nice stay at this condo. We normally stay in hotels, but really enjoyed the condo. It is spacious, has a great balcony overlooking the bay, and is very clean and comfortable.

We had a car which made our stay much easier. St John is really great, and it is great that the condo is so close to the ferry.

would definitely recommend this condo. One thing to watch out for: there is no internet in the apartment.

thanks Paul & Ashley

Beautiful views, beautiful breezes, great beach access

  • 5 of 5

This Cowpet Bay condo exceeded our expectations - the views were beautiful, the beds were comfortable, and it had everything we needed and more. Perfect for our family of four to settle in to as our "home away from home" while we enjoyed swimming at the private beach, sitting under the palm trees, and eating lunch at the beach-side restaurant. Even the little things were there -- for example, I forgot to pack a cooler and a deck of cards - both were there for our use.

Great access to Red Hook, Sapphire Beach, and Coki Beach/Coral World, yet tucked away in a secure, private area when we wanted a "down day." We hated to leave and hope to return again soon!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our daughter and granddaughter stayed here for 8 days over Christmas. It was perfect for the four of us. We had Christmas breakfast on the balcony watching the boats in the bay. The condo has great ambience. It was like staying in someone's nicely appointed home. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen nicely equipped. We liked the location near Red Hook. It was convenient to the ferry for island hopping, and the condo development sits on a nice beach, with a couple of restaurants right on the beach. It was hard to find - I didn't get specific driving directions first, and most roads are unmarked. There was a problem with the hot water heater the night we arrived, and Connie had Patsy and Mutuba working on it right away. It was replaced the next day. Patsy dropped by to check on things several times, and led us to the grocery store the day after we got there. She really went out of her way to make sure things were right and we were happy.

You will need a car here, and a 4 wheel drive is probably the best way to go. We didn't have one and kept bumping the front end on steep entries into stores, etc. We highly recommend this condo and would stay here again.
