About the property

Gorgeous Private residence with Elysian Beach Resort pool access.

Spend your sandy beach filled days, lathered with suntan oil, reclining on the gorgeous Caribbean Ocean... your nights entertaining companions in minimalist, hip luxury. The Condo in St. Thomas is a one of a kind island experience encompassing the elegance of a New York City flat filled with the best of current hospitality amenities.

Located in an end unit at the respected Cowpet Bay West Condominium community, adjacent to the Elysian Beach Resort; The Condo in St. Thomas is an incredible vacation destination. Stroll down the beach to restaurants, pool (included), cabana bar, water activities and sun bathing.

Note: The condo is guaranteed fresh, thanks to CENTRAL A/C and CENTRAL DEHUMIDIFIER.

The Condo's eastern ocean front exposure bathes its private balcony with warm trades and rays, without the hot afternoon sun. It is the perfect place for that slow start to your next adventure on island. Or, change your mind and stick around to enjoy the shady double lounge setting to read a good book, while overlooking the yacht club maritime action.

Serve martini's and a cheese board on your unobstructed, ocean front balcony, drinking in that amazing crystal clear blue ocean view. Later, close the doors on your gourmet galley kitchen after preparing your culinary delights that would make an even an executive chef smile. Turn in to your private, bedroom suite complete with high end touches including plush beds, full thread count sheets, and thick thirsty towels.

About Lisa Benson

With 30 years of property management experience in Dallas, I decided to diversify my portfolio and lifestyle, with a small investment asset group on St. Thomas in the USVI. Currently, I own and manage three condominium properties, both here at Cowpet Bay West and Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina. Please visit to view my other assets.

My decision to invest in the USVI, starting in 2013, has been both challenging and interesting. My first 9 months was a bit torturous, even with being on island collectively more than four months. Navigating and managing the plethora of contractors and suppliers, each with their local flare, was the biggest challenge. Once engaged and encouraged, my island crew began and continues to deliver high marks for speed and service.

My approach to ownership and my guest experience is "Comfortable Elegance", providing high quality, functional and reliable residences at a competitive value. My reviews validate our personal commitment to a professionally managed experience, representative of the photos presented.

St. Thomas is know for its world class beaches, but it also offers great dining, outbound excursions and activities to enjoy during your stay. Take a few moments to view my insider's guide, or let's get on the phone and chat. Be assured, I will only recommend experiences that I know are fun, memorable and safe.

Lisa Benson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Lisa Benson chose St. Thomas

I love St. Thomas, it is my second home. The place is paradise, the people are wonderful and there is so much to do. I am an east end girl, as there is so much to do right nearby, and you can't match the beauty of Cowpet Beach. I pick CBW Condos because it is the effectively managed and well respected by owners, locals and visitors alike. The best part of this is place is being able to enjoy resort style living with the serenity of a private home. To me, and my guests, the place is just perfect!

What makes this condo unique

This ocean front home is crammed with advanced features! Starting with the central a/c and dehumidifier, Sonos Wi-Fi Hi-Fi integrated throughout the home. Finished with the best cookware, linens and guest support. The pool is just a short walk down the beach, just far enough to enjoy, but not be bothered by the noise when you are tired of the sun. Though Cowpet beach is fantastic and the cabana bar has great drinks and lunch, the Ritz Carlton is just 5 minutes away and they would love to entertain you for the day! The Red Hook Ferry to St. John is 10 minutes down the highway, so island hop your lunch. Be adventuresome and bring your passport to plan a daytrip the British Virgin Islands.

Nice condo in a great location on St. Thomas

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five with 3 teenagers really enjoyed this condo in Cowpet Bay West. The two bedroom setup worked great for us, and the view of the beach and bay from the balcony is beautiful. In the morning, we could see the sunrise from behind St. James island, and in the evening the balcony was shaded with the sun setting the other direction. The condo was clean and well maintained, and the owner was very responsive to our texts with questions about the condo and the islands. The beach area at Cowpet Bay is small but comfortable and quiet and a nice place to spend a relaxing day. It is a short walk from the condo with access to the Elysian pool and pool bar, Sangria's bar & restaurant and the Caribbean Fish Market Restaurant -- all right there next to the beach and the food & drinks were great. The location on the east end of St. Thomas was convenient for taking the car barge over to St. John for a day trip (beautiful and a must see) and close to the Ritz Carlton (enjoyed the Grand Palazzo Club restaurant next door to the Ritz with a bar overlooking the Bay). It's a short drive from the condo to Red Hook area and Sapphire Bay & Marina. We did a dinner cruise and snorkeling cruise on the New Horizon sailboat from Sapphire and both were great (thanks to Captain Wes, Anna and crew!). Would highly recommend this condo.

Lovely well appointed condo with a nice view in quiet area.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is right on the water and a short walk to a small beach at the Elysian Resort. In the same area there were 2 restaurants to choose from. The area seemed very safe and very low key. We also walked over to The Ritz a couple of times for lunch. A great location if you want to stay in a quiet area with another option of a short drive to Red Hook for more action. Lisa was very helpful and quick to respond.

Lisa's condo was very nice and had everything we could possibly need.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed St. Thomas and Lisa's beautiful condo. The east end of the island was a very convenient area to be at. Close to the ferry and great restaurants. Grocery stores were close by for supply's. We enjoyed going over to St. John also. Mosquitos were a major problem on both islands. Couldn't get away from them even in the condo. I would highly recommend zip lining on St. Thomas. our favorite restaurant was The Old Farmhouse.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments! Yes, the exceptionally heavy fall rain has caused the mosquitoes to go crazy this year. But, it will get better as the winter trade winds pick up. Remember to get indoors once the sun hits the horizon and remain there until pitch dark, about 1-1.5 hours, and you will be fine. There is also plenty of bug spray in the condo. P.S. Just one aggressive female mosquito can bite numerous times, making it feel like a swarm!

Our home on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Cowpet Bay West is the place to stay on STT. Off the beaten path and next door to the Ritz. We went on many excursions that were all about 5 to 10 minutes away. The beach is clean and private and the Elysian pool is quiet and comfortable.

The owner was always available before, during, and after the trip like a virtual tour guide to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed all that this condo and location had to offer.

The views from the patio were mezmorizing and relaxing watching the sun rise and the activity at the yacht club, never seeing another person unless we went to the beach. You can see St. John's island and Great St. James island from the deck.

With the Krups ice crusher, there is no reason not to have margaritas and coladas every evening. The ladies seemed comfortable in the full kitchen cooking fresh Mahi Mahi, Grouper, and Snapper bought off of the docks that day.

This condo was a great choice for our party of 6 and I can't think of anything that would have made the condo a more comfortable stay. The technology in the condo was convenient and easy to use with the Nest thermostat, wi-fi, Sonos, and Netflix. We would return to this condo and recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to provide a detailed review with such great commentary! As an owner I know how important guest perceptions are and the reviews are a key influencer in prospective renters decision making. I am left at a bit of a loss for the missing star, resulting in a "good" rating, perhaps it was an incorrect click of the mouse? I am certainly interested in hearing the justification on the variance in message and the rating provided.

Great Condo and amazing view

  • 5 of 5

I had family stay here while visiting me a for a family party. I live on island and have been in many different condos in Cowpet. This one is well maintained and equipped with loads of cool extras - the Sonos sound system being my favorite! The condo really wowed my guests and Lisa was great to work with. I highly recommend this unit - you can't go wrong with the unit or the view.

Cowpet Bay Beach

Located between the Ritz Carlton and Secret Harbor on Ridge Road, the Cowpet Bay condominiums are located right on the beach on the bay. The Elysian Beachfront Resort is next door, and the Condo comes with pool access and arrangements for Tennis court use. It is the perfect place for quick in town access, but with the security and privacy of a gated community.
