Overview

St. Thomas Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

New to VRBO, enjoyed primarily by family and friends, we invite you to experience our little piece of paradise!

Welcome to the Caribbean and thank you for taking the time to discover the beauty of St Thomas. Upon arrival at the Elysian Beach Resort, one will be delighted with the extensive use of flora and fauna that wraps around the soft pink exterior of this island architecture. Our well maintained, NON-SMOKING unit is located on the 3rd floor with 2 flights of stairs (1 down, with 8 steps and 1 up, 8 steps). Once inside you will find a causal space decorated in classic blue and white, local art and bamboo furniture that inspire an island lifestyle. Our condo has 2 bedrooms, 3 baths, a fully equipped kitchen (small appliances and quality cookware) and 3 private balconies. The master suite has a king four poster bamboo bed dressed with quality designer quilts, vanity and bench, flat screen TV, private dressing area and bath with ceramic tub/shower combo. The guest bedroom features 2 double beds dressed with designer quilts, vanity and beach, flat screen TV, private dressing area and bath with a ceramic tub/shower combo. The center of the condo contains the fully equipped kitchen and dining area with table and custom West Indian stone work. The living room has a flat screen TV, iPod dock, bookcase with interesting beach reads, and a queen size Murphy bed that can be easily stowed away with little effort. The seating is comfy, with cushioned rattan chairs and a Braxton Culler seagrass sofa that helps create an easy laid- back feeling. For added convenience, a third bathroom is located off the hall with a dressing area and bath with a ceramic tub/shower combo. Each room has its own AC unit and ceiling fans with ocean views. This tiled condo is perfect for 3 couples or 2 small families because privacy can be created between rooms via lock out doors.

For a truly one of a kind island adventure check out our 44'Catamaran listing #418958 and combine it with this condo.

The Wyndham Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay consists of 180 units which house a lively community of island residents, second home owners, world wide vacationers and a limited number of timeshare occupants. The majority of units are privately owned; therefore decor is a reflection of the owners taste. The resort is neighbored by the St Thomas Yacht Club that hosts the famed Rolex Regatta each year and the Ritz Carlton. As a guest you will have access to our beautiful white sand beach scattered with sea grape and palm trees while enjoying the comfort of complimentary chairs and loungers. Cowpet beach has a large protected swim area that's also great for snorkeling. A short walk from the beach (2 min) and you will find a beautifully landscaped pool and Jacuzzi with chairs, umbrellas and a bar that serves frozen concoctions and spirits. This is a resort with restaurants, micro-spa for hair and nails and water sports without having to pay for all the extras that a full service resort would charge. If you are looking for a spa experience then a short walk to the Ritz next door will suffice.

Located on the popular east end of the island, the Elysian is less than 2 miles from Red Hook. This village town is known for its easy access to other islands via the ferry terminal and large marina. Red Hook also has several restaurants, bars, shops and two markets for food and island essentials.

The Elysian is located on the popular east end of the island and 30-40 min. from airport.

Car rentals are very popular and cheaper than taxis but drivers must remember to 'keep left' when driving.

Keywords: Oceanfront condo resort in St Thomas with beautiful views in a casual island retreat. This is a perfect property for families, couples and friend getaways for an island vacation.

About Betsy Hinson

Well traveled couple that loves art, history, architecture and the beach. We love traveling throughout the US, Mexico, Europe and the Caribbean. We like unique lodging experiences and getting to know the local population of an area. We reside by the ocean in Myrtle Beach where we own a small vacation rental company. St Thomas is our second home and a place we can relax and enjoy reconnecting with friends in a casual uncomplicated setting.

Betsy Hinson purchased this condo in 2001

Why Betsy Hinson chose St. Thomas

I visited St Thomas for the first time in the early 90's and stayed at the Elysian a year after it was completed. Much to my surprise in 2001, while on vacation we discovered that a few condos were available for sell and we jumped at the chance! Today, we visit several times a year and have an annual retreat with family and friends.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite place to read a book is on our beach! Island hopping and days filled with sailing! Enjoy coffee at sunrise and a glass of wine at sunset, perfection!

Great set up

  • 5 of 5

This unit is great because it has room for so many people. I live on island and had family staying for a family reunion. They loved the unit and really felt it was comfortable for all 4 adults. The owners were great to work with and everything was easy from start to finish.

very nicely decorated and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Great location at a nice resort. We got very spoiled exchanging wet beach towels for clean, dry towels as often as needed. Close by Red Hook for dinner, drinks, and groceries. Red Hook is also where you can take the ferry to St. John's for nice day trips. Pool with beach side restaurants also very handy.

Best Regards,

Mark t.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great condo!! This condo was perfect for four of us, plenty of room so we never felt crowded. Loved having three bathrooms. Our favorite spot was the lanai off the living room. Perfect for morning coffee and evening cocktails. The condo was stocked with everything we needed. The resort was perfect with it's own beach, 2 restaurants, pool and hot tub. The location was great and close to most of our activities. Can't wait to return!!
