Point Pleasant condo description

This stunning waterfront condo is blessed with the absolute best location in all of the Point Pleasant Resort. With its corner location and its huge wrap-around balcony, the condo provides a spectacular view of 13 additional Virgin Islands (8 are U.S. and 5 are British). Each seems more beautiful than the next (and only 4 are inhabited). See list below*
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Simply stated, this unique and spacious 1BR condo delivers the best that Point Pleasant has to offer. The best location, the best view, the best layout, and easily the best ambiance -- all provided in a relaxed, low key and comfortable environment.

Situated at waterside, our superior unit enjoys an ideal corner location on the 3rd floor of a 4-level building (only 2 condos per floor). It's unique location is further enhanced by sliding glass doors that extend the full length of both exterior walls. These glass 'sliders' are seldom closed except in inclement weather, as they open onto large, fully covered patios. The result is an open and airy living space that is dominated by views you will remember for the rest of your life!

A full renovation/restoration of the condo was completed by new owners in 2010, and it is furnished in a tropical Asian style. The decor contributes to a relaxed environment of casual warmth and comfort. Nice as they may be, however, the tropical furnishings go almost unnoticed compared to the incredible views from both the East and North-facing balconies.

The East (Windward) view features the famed North Shore of St. John (seemingly closer than the actual 5 miles over water). Just a fractional turn of the head exposes the spectacular 'down island' view of Tortola and the beautiful British Virgin Islands. Alternatively, the view from our North-facing balcony displays the adjacent Pineapple Beach, with numerous sailboats at anchor in the multi-colored waters of beautiful Water Bay.

The Condo's corner location and wrap-around design will enable you to enjoy ocean breezes that enter on one side of the condo and exit on the other. Elegant, yet comfortable, outdoor furniture virtually assures that guests will gravitate to the covered patios as their favored living and dining areas.

Beyond their traditional role as cool and sunny lounging areas, these covered patios are an ideal place to experience the breathtaking daily vista of a Caribbean sunrise over water. Further, virtually any clear night will deliver the romantic spectacle of 'moonlight over water'.

Whether “dining out” on the patio, or simply relaxing with a favorite cocktail, the ever-changing panorama of ocean views will not cease to amaze you. With its unique glass enclosed design, its preferred waterside location and it's covered balconies - it's no surprise that this delightful condo has become the most sought after one-bedroom at Point Pleasant.

The Point Pleasant Resort itself features a full range of amenities and activities, not the least of which is one popular restaurant and its three beautiful pools - each sporting a world class view of its own (one is situated directly below the condo’s East balcony).

Excellent snorkeling is literally steps away at Sugar, Coki, Smith Bay Park and Pineapple beaches, with kayaking, wind surfing, day-sail charters, parasailing and jet skis all less than a five-minute walk away. In addition, Point Pleasant’s own scenic hiking trail weaves throughout the grounds.

Other major attractions in the immediate vicinity are St. Thomas’s renowned Coral World Underwater Marine Park (less than a half mile away), and scenic Magen's Bay - it's the largest beach on the island and is ranked as one of the ten most beautiful in the world (less than 15 minutes away).

* The 12 islands included in the breathtaking view from our East-facing balcony are (from left to right): Thatch Cay, Sandy Cay (BVI), Guana Island (BVI), Tortola (BVI), Grass Cay, Mingo Cay, Great Thatch (BVI), Congo Cay, Lovango Cay, Whistling Cay (BVI), St John, Ramgoat Cay and Henley Cay).

              The Bear sends his greetings from Point Pleasant, USVI! 04/17/2007

              VRBO Bear stayed here:


              It's hard to imagine a better view than the one you get from virtually anywhere in this Virgin Islands condo. The entire north and east walls are floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors. Every morning, I got up, opened the doors to create a light breeze throughout the unit and had breakfast on the lovely patio overlooking the pool, the bay, St John, and Tortuga (BVI).

              Jim, the owner, has created a unique ambiance by furnishing the condo with furniture and accessories from Bali and the far east. It's a tranquil and relaxing environment. Fungi's, a restaurant serving traditional West Indian cuisine is steps below, right on the beach area so there's no need to feel pressured to drive to dinner, if you don't want to fix your own. If you do want to dine out there are a number of fine restaurants within a few miles.

              It is a bit of a challenge to find this place the first time but it's time well-spent as the seclusion and quiet make it an ideal home base for a Virgin Islands vacation. It is very close to Red Hook and the ferry to St John and far enough from the airport to have little, if any noise. My evenings were spent on the patio reading, watching the birds and boats rocking, and listening to the waves a hundred feet away.

              This is a great place, and a bear from the mountains could get used to staying here for a long time!

St John is most famous for its series of white sand beaches, each more beautiful than the other, but it has also gained prominence for its artist population and its many unique shops.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About: We are a semi-retired couple living in the Georgetown section of Washington, DC. St. Thomas has truly become our 'second home', and we enjoy spending time in either or both of our side-by-side condos here at the beautiful Point Pleasant Resort. Work permitting, we try to spend up to three months a year here (normally spread over 4 trips). We are happy to have you share either or both of our Condos, and we hope you will enjoy them, just as we do. Most important during your stay is to simply relax and enjoy both our multi-faceted Island and our fantastic year-round weather. Whatever you choose to do with your time here, we strongly encourage you to dedicate at least one day to visiting nearby St. John. It is 3/4 National Park and is both stunningly beautiful and very well kept. At the same time, it is incredibly peaceful. We often tell friends who visit that 'Whatever drop in pace you experience in coming from your home to St. Thomas, you will experience an equivalent drop when you get off the ferry (either car or passenger), in St. John. ' Our second major recommendation is that you spend a day on the water aboard one of the many day-sail charters that are available. All of them are sure to deliver both a relaxing day and a memorable experience. Our personal favorites are Coconut and Daydreamer, both of which are anchored just off the balcony. Fortunately, we are long time friends with the owners, and they never fail to provide a discount to our guests. We hope you will enjoy your stay, and possibly come back to visit again. Please feel free to provide us feedback on your stay - either by making an entry in our guest book, talking to our Manager, Dionne, or by providing a review via VRBO. In any case, we hope you will truly enjoy both our Island and our home away from home. Thank you for your consideration! PS: Our photo was taken three years at the end of a fantastic 3-mile hike on the Reef Bay Trail in St John. We highly recommend it as well.

              Why Point Pleasant:
              Our Condo is located on by far the nicest end of the island, and we also own the smaller unit next door (VRBO #267936). Beyond that, we never cease to be amazed by the combination of spectacular view, morning sun, cooling ocean breezes and the seemingly ideal location of our two condos. In addition, for families or friends traveling together, we are pleased to be able to provide an opportunity for the entire group to be close together in adjoining condos (we even have a door connecting the two patios that is only unlocked for such groups).
