About Xaverie & Daniel Hull

The Virgin Islands is now our home. We love exploring and enjoying the beautiful beaches of all the Islands. After traveling the world as Military Brats, we finally found a place that we can call our home and we love that we get to share it with others.

Xaverie & Daniel Hull purchased this condo in 2010

Why Xaverie & Daniel Hull chose East End

We purchased the condo for our personal enjoyment but wanted to share with others as we love it so much. We ended up buying another one for us to live in! We get the best of both worlds, being at home and being on vacation at the same time! Point Pleasant provides us with a quiet place to relax away from our busy schedules and is the perfect place to unwind.

What makes this condo unique

Close to Red Hook and the ferries to both St. John and the British Virgin Islands and even closer to our favorite beach - Lindquist Beach - a 2 minute drive down the road.

At home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Tortuga Del Mar for the THIRD time now! Walking into the condo this time especially gave us the feeling of returning home ;). Xaverie and Daniel are super accommodating and helpful as always. The view that we love became even better due to some trees being cut down (kinda sad, I know). Always love our relaxing moments on that balcony! It's great staying somewhere that we can cook our own meals so we don't have to eat out all the time. We make most of our own breakfasts and pack lunches to take on our daily adventures. They have a cooler and beach chairs which makes it so easy to have awesome day trips! This is definitely our fav vacation spot!

Point Pleasant, Tortuga Del Mar and Coral Ridge Realty are the bomb!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Christmas Holiday staying at Tortuga Del Mar. We stayed for a week, and the condo was perfect. Everything we needed and things we didn't know we needed were there waiting for us. Sitting out on the deck for morning coffee enjoying the peaceful view was a perfect setup for the day. The condo was clean, well equipped and just beautiful. The resort is beautiful too, the nature trail was a great morning walking place, and the grounds are kept very well. The condo owners Xaverie and Daniel could not have been more gracious and answered any questions we had, and were friendly and made renting the condo very easy and accommodating. They gave us great recommendations on restaurants, the best beaches, the best day trips to take. Really we couldn't ask for more. Point Pleasant is a hidden gem, quiet, peaceful, grown up. We can't wait to go back.

An amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience! Point Pleasant is lovely, close to Red Hook, Lindquist beach and Maegen's Bay. Our host was so gracious and had thought of everything. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to St thomas. And there will definitely be many more trips to St Thomas :)

Great home base to explore the islands!

  • 4 of 5

First off, Xaverie and Daniel are great hosts! The room was very clean and put together when we arrived. They pay attention to the details and assured our room was stocked and ready for a weeks stay. The only reason I give it a 4 out of 5 instead of a 5 stars was some power issues. These were out if Xaverie and Daniel's control as it was the whole building that lost power, 2 nights in a row. No storms during the power loss so likely just some power quality issues the Resort needs to address and spend some $$$ to resolve. The condo is in short walking distance to Coki Beach, the best beach on the island in my opinion. Dushi By The Sea is a great fishshack right in front of Coki Beach and a must for anyone to visit while staying here.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you and your family had a great time here! Those darn power issues - it was not only the entire building, it was the entire island that was out each time! We hope that you make our place or Point Pleasant Resort your vacation go-to every year!

Great 5-Star experience in Smith Bay!

  • 5 of 5

The Hull's were attentive, helpful hosts for any questions for our visit. This property is ideal for a couple or a couple with a youth - the kitchen's fully equipped, right down to the Cuba Libre ingredients in the fridge! :) These buildings are perched on a steep hill, but this unit has street-level entry, making it perfect if you're concerned about the many flights of stairs on the resort property. The full kitchen coupled with Cost-U-Less and Plaza Extra markets in Tutu nearby are a must for us as we find most island food overpriced, mediocre, and a little bland for our tastes. Those markets also offer shipping boxes for a couple of bucks and $7 #1Cruzan Rum for taking home (6L/person OK and no bag fees). We find that a small FWD rental car (for both St. Thomas AND St. John's hilly roads) are must-haves to fully experience these two islands on your own schedule. Provided were a 40" Sony TV with HDMI for reviewing your movies and photos, BRAND NEW modem/router with streaming speed, clean and comfortable furniture, mattress, bedding, towels, etc. This unit does not provide a BBQ (only electric BBQ grills are permitted at Point Pleasant, no propane or charcoal) and we could not locate a broiler pan in the cabinets. The AC worked quite well without issue, keeping the ENTIRE unit comfortable and restful. The balcony was handy for drying out all our gear after each day out. The pool and on-the-water bar below the resort are your left-turn to the beachfront path for Margaritaville Resort (GOOD FOOD!) and a short walk across the street past the dive shop to Coki Beach. We are hard-core snorkelers and spent many hours each day underwater at the islands beaches, and having Coki a short walk away was perfect and we gave it a second visit too! Bring your medium-sized dog biscuits and experience hundreds of tropical fish eating right out of your hand. Close in town, the waterfront and Charlotte Amalie's duty-free shopping is fun with 2-hour free parking, fair prices, and plenty of both local vendors and brick-&-mortar shops. After those 99 Steps, visit the Dane Mall where Darius at his Royal Anchor Bar will offer you a seat to rest your feet, fine craft beer, and his famous pierogis. The ferries to Virgin Gorda & BVI are right there with $5 all-day parking, and a DIY day trip to The Baths and Devils Bay are highly recommended vs. the go-go-go charters full of drunks. Overall, the Hull's provided us a memorable stay here of great value in Smith Bay, STT.

Very Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't being to tell how awesome this place was. The condo was the tops, and the view was outstanding. The storage on the patio had absolutely everything you would need to go to the beach. Ideally located near the best beaches in the world. The resort was a beautiful place to visit, the pools there were awesome and had views that dropped your jaw. Xaverie and Daniel were wonderful to us and made the trip memorable. Oh yeah, driving a car there...what an experience. Loved it!
