The best place on the island for the price.
- english, polish
I love to travel and love the islands. I was lucky enough to read about the East End of St Thomas one day and how easy it is to take a ferry or charter to other islands, then to come visit and find this amazing Villa in what is truly Paradise.
Shawn purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Shawn chose Estate Smith Bay
I've been to 20 islands and loved them all until I found the East End of St Thomas - and had a chance to experience the Virgin Islands - which made all other islands pale by comparison.
What makes this Villa unique
Walk 3 mins to sit on the beach or go snorkeling. Walk 1 min to sit at the pool or hang at the waterside restaurant. Take kayaks; rent jet skis; or... visit Magens Bay the #1 beach on St Thomas (and top 3 in the VI). Go 1 mile down the road to Lindquist beach which is amazing, and since so few know of it you'll see almost no one there - seriously and amazing beach in paradise almost to yourself. Easy access to Trunk Bay the #1 Beach in all the VI and a top 5 in the world; plus many more islands. I'll gladly tell ya how to get to take day trips to other islands such as Jost van Dyke to Soggy Dollar (#1 beach bar in the world 6 years straight); Tortola (to Cane Garden Bay or Nanny Cay); or Virgin Gorda to 'the Baths' which is also referred to as the 8th Wonder of the World. We are so close to all this, I've seen most of it already on my current trip - all you need to do it get up and go. I can recommend different day charters that will include a stop on an island or two, include a snorkel stop and then good music and an open bar. I've gone on many of them, and can attest that the day trips are fun for all on board. I'll be glad to give you the details on exactly what you need to know and where to go for anything you think you'd like to do

I don't know quite where to begin. Everything about this property was perfect. Shawn was a fabulous host! No better could be found I don't think. Helpful beyond words. I will most definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone. The sun rise was exquisite, his suggestions were spot on, he had snacks and beverages waiting my arrival. Turtles, multi colored fish, iguanas, great food and drinks all as promised. Who could ask for more? I wasn't ready to leave paradise!
2nd time staying here, and still great...
I stayed at this property in 2018 for two weeks and loved it. I decided to come back again this year, and am happy I did. The villa worked out great for a working vacation, as it did last year.
The Point Pleasant resort has made improvements since last year, when they were still recovering from the two Cat 5 hurricanes of 2017.
And like last year, Shawn was quick to get back to me if I had any questions before or during my stay. I highly recommend renting from Shawn!
The place was exactly as Shawn described it, only better because of the ocean breeze on the porch. We spent SO much time just looking out at the water watching the little turtles come up for air and then seeing the huge iguanas sunning themselves down in the shrubs, so cool! The sunrises were spectacular, I took so many pictures! Everything else was great: the kitchen, the bed, bath, furnishings...couldn’t have asked for a better place! Thank you Shawn!

So glad you loved it, and yes it, it is so much more amazing than photos can describe. The breeze, the turtles, fish, iguanas, the beach steps away, a pool and restaurant steps away. The perfect place!
We enjoyed a spectacular week at the property in Smith Bay. Shawn was a great host who was always available and quick to respond. He even sent us tons of suggestions. Many places within walking distance including the beautiful beach. The patio was perfect for reading, relaxing and enjoying the amazing views. 10/10 would stay again.
Gorgeous vacay spot
This condo is an awesome place to stay with breath taking views. We were so close to the private beach in the resort and restaurants. Shawn was very detailed in providing great info on places to visit and a great host.
Nature Lover's Paradise!
Third visit to Point Pleasant Resort in St. Thomas and first time staying at Shawn's condo. We were thrilled with the location which sat one unit above the ocean and had a lovely eastern exposure. All the comforts of home were there for us; even snorkeling gear! Yes there is cookware/barware, wifi, coffee pot, blender and many linens. Shawn has a nice line up of movies for the large screen TV however we never even touched it. All we wanted was the beach! Every morning we woke early to watch the sun come up over the BVI. Each evening was perfect for sky watching and counting numerous falling stars. The sound of the ocean was soothing, the sunlight healing and the salt air therapeutic. Parking was just steps away from the condo. Everything was comfortable and beyond our expectations! Nice appliances and I loved the shower! The condo is close to the beach and also the pool.
If you have never been to Point Pleasant Resort, this is clearly a nature lover's paradise. Point Pleasant has a very rugged landscape and is uniquely tucked into the cliffs. You are surrounded by nature. From the balcony you will see iguanas and pelicans in the trees right next to you. Many types of birds, lizards, several friendly felines stopped by to say hello and at night we seen a stray dog, who was rather friendly, but quite shy. Animal lover? This is the place for you!
Point Pleasant has a very small beach. A wooden boardwalk will take you to the white sandy area tucked beneath the cliffs. Snorkeling is good there. There are three swimming pools on site and two restaurants. We only went to Shoreline Grill which sat right above the water. Loved it! They have the best bartenders and the cook prepared a yummy gluten free entrée just for me!
The resort is close to the east end of the island and is adjacent to the Margaritaville Resort. Beaches are open to the public as long as you have direct access to the oceanfront, which you do. From Point Pleasant's Shoreline Grill, feel free to wander along Margaritaville's beach and from there make your way to Coki beach and Coral World.
Many thanks to Shawn for having such a lovely place for us to rent!!
Perfectly located on the East End of St Thomas just 3 miles west of Red Hook which has great restaurants, bars and the ferry docks to the other islands. Very close to Coki Beach, Lindquist Beach and Sapphire Beach, with Magen's Bay an easy drive; plus Trunk Bay an easy ferry ride. You can also take a Day Sail with Morningstar Sail Charters which is ranked as the #1 day sail on St Thomas - they run their trips from our property everyday at 10am (check with them for rates). You also have a great waterside restaurant and bar in Jack's Bight only a min from the Villa.
I'll be glad to help you with anything you need in planning your trip !!!
