Southside Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6) Wireless Included

NO PASSPORT REQUIRED FOR ST. THOMAS FOR US CITIZENS!

All linens provided and cleaning fee is included in the rental price!

Our condo which is located in building 16 in the Watergate division of Bolongo Bay is centrally located to everything you need on the island. Charlotte Amalie is a short 10-minute ride to the west. Here you can find many great places to eat and the international market place where you can experience the best duty-free shopping in the islands. The airport is approximately 20 minutes away and is an easy drive. To the east about a 10-minute drive you will find Red Hook. Here you can find great places to eat like Island Time Pizza and Tap and Still. Red Hook is also your key to the charter boats and ferries. You can take a car or person ferry to St John. Ferries are also available to go to Jost van Dyke and Tortola and other locations in the BVI.

The 2 bedroom / 2-bathroom condo is a spacious 1100 sq feet. Each of the 2 bedrooms is designed for privacy and are air conditioned as is the living room. There is a washer and dryer in the condo for your convenience. The second bedroom has 2 twins that can be made up as king one depending on your needs. The sofa pullout is available for an extra guest if needed. The condo is situated right on the ocean and has amazing views that you will enjoy daily. All linens, sheets and towels, are provided at no extra charge. The fully equipped kitchen allows guests to enjoy ocean view dinner right in the comforts of home. The condo was recently remodeled throughout and is a beautiful place for you to enjoy your vacation.

There are three great restaurants for you to enjoy during your stay at the resort.

1. Mim’s Seaside Bistro offers amazing outdoor and indoor seating and is situated right on the ocean for amazing views while dining. They offer several specials including an all you can eat shrimp on Thursday. Seafood bisque, coconut curry lobster and filet mignon are few of the favorites.

2. Iggies Beach Bar offers great food and drink so grab a barstool, breathe in the fresh ocean air, meet locals, mingle with visitors, order a bucket of VooDoo juice and let the good times begin! Located a few feet from the water’s edge, Iggies Beach Bar & Grill is an island hot-spot both day and night. Iggies is the only place on St. Thomas where you’ll find live entertainment 365 days a year. You might be here for one of our famous “Bands in the Sand” concerts, or some other special event such as our Super Bowl Tailgate Party or our weekly Carnival Extravaganza. Whatever the reason, good times are waiting for you here at Iggies Beach Bar.

3. The Lobster Grille provides a relaxing atmosphere for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The two-story, open-air restaurant edges our beachfront pool and offers beautiful ocean views. Start your morning with a hearty hello from Viola, our Bolongo Bay ambassador, and coffee or Mimosas (you are on vacation). Fuel up with Caribbean Eggs Benedict or Banana Foster Pancakes, or go light with a fruit and yogurt parfait or slice of our fresh-baked banana mango nut bread. For lunch, try one of our fresh salads, lobster flatbread pizza, or French Town Dip. Join us for happy hour (served 4 to 6 pm daily) and toast the day with a martini or glass of wine selected from our unique wine list. At night, dine on one of our restaurant’s famous fresh Caribbean lobster dishes – stuffed with crab, baked, seasoned and grilled, sautéed over pasta and more. Or enjoy fresh fish or juicy steaks paired with seasonal vegetables, island rice or roasted red bliss potatoes. Just make sure to save room for the evening’s assortment of decadent desserts or at least a Bushwacker – the famous blended drink is dessert with a kick and served in a coconut mug.

Plan the perfect St. Thomas date night for someone special!

Start your magical evening with a Sunset Sail around beautiful Charlotte Amalie Harbor on Heavenly Days. Watch the skyline turn into brilliant shades of red and orange while you sip Champagne or cocktails from the open bar and nibble on light hors d’oeuvres. After returning to Bolongo Bay stop by The Lobster Grille for dinner, or head down to Iggies for lighter fare and live music.

Our condo is located in the best location for easy access to everything. Make sure to enjoy the beautiful ocean front pool just steps from the condo. Everything you need is right there at your leisure.

Enjoy St Thomas, St Johns and Jost Van Dyke. Make sure to stop by the Soggy Dollar Bar and The One Love Bar located on the beach of White Bay.

Beautiful Views AND Comforts of Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for my family. This is a great condo for those traveling with kids, or anyone that wants the comforts of home. The view every morning was breathtaking. I could make the kids breakfast and sit on the patio and watch the waves roll in while I sipped my tea. It was pure bliss. The kitchen will save you lots of money! All the food is expensive because you're on an island, but still better for us to prepare as many meals in the condo as possible. I loved being so close to Iggies. Wednesday night was great (carnival night) and it's literally a 3 minute stroll down the beach. I took the kids down there every night to play games in the sand. Their food and drinks are great too and reasonably priced. The other thing that I really loved was the air conditioning! We traveled from the desert of Southern California and we know heat, but I have never experienced humidity like this! Thank God for good air conditioning. We were very comfortable in the condo. I was also happy with the location. Although we couldn't get in the water right in front of the condo, you can go down the beach towards the other resort and get in. There are too many sea urchins right in front. We highly recommend Coki Beach and Secret Harbor. These beaches are best on non cruise ship days. There was hardly anyone on the beach when we went. Overall this property was perfect for our family and I would highly recommend it.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, everything was well above what we expected. The condo was clean, neat, and stocked with everything we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Scott, the property manager, was more than helpful and generous. There was action and excitement literally just a few steps away from the patio. Wonderful experience and would definitely stay here again. Thanks much for an awesome vacation. Jackie

I would stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

Booking was easy. James answered all my questions really quickly. Pictures are legit what the condo looks like. Literally 2 seconds to the pool and maybe 30 seconds to the beach. The kitchen is fully stocked which was a plus for eating leftovers from restaurants. (We went to 2 grocery stores but I do not recommend either of them.) I recommend XO Bistro restaurant if you go up to Red Hook to catch the ferry one day. (Someone in the guest book recommended it to us, loved it.) Or if you are not adventurous, you could totally never leave this condo the whole week. There are 3 restaurants on site. Carnival night on Wednesday was super cool. We are 6 27-32 aged females and we didn't have a problem sharing the beds/bathrooms/space. Pack some sample detergents in case you want to wash towels half way through the trip, that's what we did.

Ocean Side Walk Out

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a condo with a great view, and pretty much everything you need right there look no further. Our group enjoyed our stay at Bonologo Bay very much. It was very nice to be able to walk right to the pool. Scott the property manager was awesome! very helpful with suggestions on where to go on the island, we went to Secret Harbor, XO Bistro and Duffy's all on his suggestion and they were all awesome! Definitely check out Iggie's right on the beach at the condo and get a burger they were so good!!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was PERFECT for our group of four adults traveling to St. Thomas for five days. The condo was immaculate and we loved the layout, with each bedroom (sleeping 2 people each) having its own bathroom. We took advantage of having a washer and dryer in the unit, and did laundry throughout our stay. ACs worked great, bathrooms look like they were newly remodeled. The living room was great with plenty of seating, and we spent a ton of time on the patio too. Kitchen was well equipped. It's a two second walk to the pool and beach area, and overlooking Mims (the restaurant on the property) didn't bother us one bit. Both the owner and property manager were great to work with and answered any questions we had.

We would absolutely stay at this rental unit again, we had a blast!

Great condo & awesome area!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 11 nights over x-mas week & had a terrific time. I was a little apprehensive after reading some of the reviews but it is a clean & pretty well appointed condo. The best things about it were: the view, central island location, beachfront/pool access, good beds, nice bathrooms, the washer/dryer in unit came in handy, good wifi, & the readily amenities in Bolongo bay; restaurants, live beachside music & games @ iggys every night, dive shop, catamaran excursions, & pretty good snorkeling in the bay. We saw sea turtles, lobsters, some coral, & other cool stuff right off the shore! Everything is there that you need to have a great vacation & you probably wouldn't even need to leave the area if you didn't want to. The only negatives were the porch overlooks mims restaurant so it was a little awkward feeling like you were watching people eat dinner @ night, the sliding glass door is difficult to open/close & in need of replacement (which seemed ridiculous for a beachfront vacation rental), some days the tv would continuously turn itself off which I thought was amusing but frustrated the kids, the off balance ceiling fan in master made it squeaky & unusable, it seemed like some of the stove burners wouldn't lay flat, & I would have appreciated a good non stick pan or 2 so my eggs would have cooked properly. All of these issues are obviously 1st world problems that a handyman could knock out in a day & they didn't put much of a damper on our trip but they would be great improvements before our next visit & we'll probably be back next year! I was also a little concerned about sending my money to a property manager in North Carolina but everything worked out flawlessly & he is legit. The onsite property manager Scott was excellent too! He called the 1st day to make sure we were all set & got 1 of the window units replaced the next day when it happened to die during our stay. Bottom line is that I recommend this place so do it...

Owner's Response: First thanks for the good review. We appreciate the notes. Because of it we are: 1. Hanging a new flat screen on the wall. 2. Putting some non stick pans in the kitchen this week. 3. The maintenance people were called today for the sliding glass door. 4. The ceiling fan is being fixed or replaced. Again thanks, without your eyes we would not know of these issues.
