As a direct guest of the owner (through this website), you will be provided the best rates and a private check-in that allows you to bypass the front-desk process. This is not a hotel room but an entire condo, hotel rooms are between 450 and 500 square feet. Our condo is actually three combined units with approximately 1500 square feet in which to spread out!

The Elysian Beach Resort is built on a hillside. Our condo is near the beach only about a 60-second walk; the pool is even closer. The beach, lined with palm trees, has a large protected swim area and an area where you can snorkel. There is very little wave action so a great, safe beach for children.

Next to the beach is a beautifully landscaped pool with hot tub. Adjacent to the pool is a wonderful island “Pool Bar” that features “happy hour” each afternoon and any time it rains it is 'happy hour”. There are two restaurants on the property, Sangria’s, a casual beach bar and restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner and has video gaming machines. Caribbean Fish Market, an award winning restaurant with plenty of outdoor seating so you can enjoy the palm tree lined beach while you dine. It is open 7 nights a week for dinner and Sunday brunch.

On site, we have a tennis court, exercise room (fee), health/beauty/massage spa (fee) and water sports rentals (fee). The Elysian is home of ROSIE WELLS-Permanent cosmetics if you really want to indulge yourself. The water-sport hut can arrange boating excursions for you to the BVI or St. John.

In the nearby town of Red Hook(less than 2 miles), you can take the ferry and explore St. John or to the British Virgin Islands (passport required). Red Hook has a grocery store, gift and specialty shops and a large marina. Red Hook is also home to some very good restaurants, Pesce (Italian and fresh seafood) and The Cellar Restaurant and Lounge.

About Judi Kromenhoek

I live with my husband on St. Thomas, right next door to the Elysian. We have lived here for 17 years, love the island and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Judi Kromenhoek purchased this condo in 1989

Why Judi Kromenhoek chose US Virgin Islands

We purchased the condo at the Elysian when it was being built. We had a condo next door at Cowpet Bay West and really loved the area. My children and now grandchildren have grown up visiting here and all love our island.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo has three terraces with plenty of seating. It is amazing to go outside for your morning coffee and watch the boats go by.

The two bedrooms have newly installed window shades to keep the morning sun out.

The condo is perfect. Judi has thought of everything from all kitchen ware to beach toys. The resort has several great restaurants and bars, and there are always chairs available on the beach. There is WiFi for the kids, and a blender for the adults. :) Some of the best beaches are located within minutes of the condo, as well as stores, groceries, and snorkel rental. The condo looks exactly like the photos--you will not be disappointed. Best vacation ever!!!!

Upgraded, comfortable, convenient, great location

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families with an 8 day stay at the condo. The condo is lovely, immaculate and upgraded. There are 3 balconies and the beachfront view can be enjoyed from both bedrooms and the living room. The pictures do not do justice to how beautiful the views are.

There are extra linen and the kitchen is well equipped.

The pool on the property is fantastic and the beach is wonderful to swim. They were both never too crowded.

The location of the property is great. It's less than a 5 minute drive from red Hook and the restaurants and the grocery or drugstore. The restaurants at the resort are great.

Judy, the owner was very responsive and helpful with any questions we had and it was a pleasure staying at her Condo for our first trip to virgin islands.

We had a great vacation to Virgin islands and the condo was a great choice. We would certainly stay here again.

Very nice. Would stay there again, no argument.

  • 4 of 5

Location great, but you need a rental car for shopping and spontaneous touring. Taxis would be less good. Parking at the villa was good. Good small beach, low traffic, nearly private. Pool very nice. Friends were staying next door at the Ritz-Carlton villas and said they liked ours better. Restaurants at the resort were good. Informal beach cafe/bar needs a slightly bigger menu. Fancier restaurant was excellent. Other restaurants nearby are very good for our family's style. We have been to St. Thomas 4 times, usually staying with family at their nearby home, but that was not possible on this trip. This villa was a very good alternative for us. We entertained and cooked for 11 people one night. Children sat at counter inside and adults were fine at the two tables on the large balcony. Also was nice to have the smaller balconies off each of the two bedrooms for a little privacy. Owner was responsive to help with a couple of small problems, one with the condo and one with the family. Definitely recommended.

Judith's condo was beautiful and spacious. The bedrooms were very large and comfortable , each one having its own very large bathroom. The kitchen had everything you could need and the living room was big enough for all of us. The whole condo has been updated and done very nice. My family and myself couldn't ask for anything more and we would love to stay here again if we come back to Staint Thomas.

Beautiful and spacious property on the quiet Elysian Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to the Elysian Beach Resort. Judi takes great care of her property and has everything you could need available for use, including beach toys, coolers for the beach, beach towels, and a well stocked kitchen. The condo is large and the two queen beds in the second room make it a great place for a family to be together, but still have room of their own. The views from the room are gorgeous from all three balconies. Comfortable seating and dining are available on each of the patios as well.

The pool at the resort has a wonderful design and a nice cove feature. The two restaurants on property are convenient and delicious. The beach is so cozy and picturesque with hammocks and shaded huts, twinkle lights strung by Sangrias restaurant, and games on the beach (giant Connect Four, Checkers, and bags). On Wednesday nights they show a family friendly movie on the beach on an inflatable screen. There is a beach shack on property where you can rent equipment and schedule excursions as well (the New Horizons day sail and snorkel trip was a highlight of our vacation).

We were undecided about whether or not to rent a car while on the island, and are happy we decided to do so. There are many beautiful beaches on the island and it's convenient to drive to restaurants, grocery stores, beaches, shopping, etc.. You can also take your rental car on the car barge to St. John for a day to see what that island has to offer.

We would highly recommend Judi's condo. She is easy to work with and her property was everything we were looking for.

Car: not necessary

Condo is about 2 miles from Red Hook, a charming little town with very good restaurants, small shops and a nice marina. Have a nice dinner at Pesce or Raw or Melt and then walk the docks to see some of the beautiful boats.

About 5 miles away is Coral World, you can swim with sharks and learn all about the sea life in St. Thomas.

We have some amazing duty-free shopping in downtown Charlotte Amalia (about 10 miles). You may want to take advantage of the good jewelry prices and very low priced liquor and perfume.
