This is one of two condos that we advertise on VRBO. Click on 'See All My Rental Listings' below to see our other condo or Google 'Nancys Condos'.

Central to the condo is a fully equipped kitchen,dining area, and living room, All linens are provided. 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.

The Island: You have come to the right island if you want to explore some of the most beautiful sights in the world, partake in virtually any water/boating activity, lounge at several of the world’s most beautiful beaches, or enjoy extraordinary restaurants.

Take day trips to St. John or the British Virgin Islands, shop in world renowned & duty-free Charlotte Amalie, golf in a Caribbean paradise at Mahogany Run, or visit the infamous Udder Delight roadside stand next to the St. Thomas Dairy for a Kahlua Milkshake ... and the list goes on and on! It’s all here for you on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, a U.S. Territory.

The Resort: Come and enjoy the exclusive and immaculately manicured Elysian Beach Resort where the aqua blue Caribbean water of Cowpet Bay will be ever present in your views from the living room, the bedrooms, or any one of this exquisite condo's three private balconies.

The Elysian is located just 12.5 scenic miles from the Cyril E. King airport (STT) on the east end of St. Thomas where it rises from its secluded beach to offer a most magnificent setting tucked quietly between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club.

From the moment you enter the resort you will begin to relax as you discover that most all of your vacation needs can be satisfied within a few hundred feet of the condo.

Start your day with a fresh cup of coffee on one of the three balconies where you can sit in the fresh morning air and get started on that book you've been wanting to read. If coffee and a book is not your style, consider a game of tennis on a court surrounded by palm trees.

Later in the morning, enjoy the beautifully secluded white sand beach, where, in the shade of the palm trees, beach furniture and a sports concession stand that offers a variety of water toys such as paddle boats, single and double kayaks, windsurfers, float-mats, and snorkeling gear. Beach towls will be given out at the front office.

Enjoy a quiet day on the beach while you watch the iguanas sunbathing. (See our FAQ for information about feeding the iguanas.)

If partaking of island rum is also on your agenda, make sure to ask for the ever popular 'Pain-Killer' drink invented and made famous at Soggy Dollar Bar on the island of Jost Van Dyke. (Better yet, take the ferry from Red Hook to Jost Van Dyke by way of Soppers Hole in Tortola where you can clear BVI customs ... take your passport.)

For a change of scenery, with reading material in hand, consider spending an afternoon sitting at the Elysian freshwater swimming pool; one of the most exquisitely designed and landscaped pools on the island, complete with rock grotto waterfall and 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 Beach Side Bistro, a casual beach bar serving breakfast, lunch and dinner and 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.

The resort is just two miles from Red Hook, the center of St. Thomas's popular east end activity and ferry transports to the other islands in the area (USVI and BVI). In Red Hook you will also find boutiques and groceries, and several marinas where you can rent powerboats or sailboats. Red Hook also has many popular restaurants and nightclubs.

Come ... relax ... enjoy ... the Elysian Beach Resort.

When renting at the Elysian Beach Resort there are two things you absolutely need to know:

1) Are you renting a single room unit? Most of the units are 450-500 square feet. Our condo is actually three combined units with approximately 1,500 square feet in which to spread out!

2) The Elysian Beach Resort is built on a hillside. One of the most common questions we get asked is 'How many stairs do I need to traverse to/from the beach and swimming pool?' Our condo is near the bottom of the hill and is one of the closest to the beach and pool, and we still have great views. We have the fewest number of stairs to traverse than anywhere else in the resort. Our unit is about a 60-second walk to the beach; the pool is closer.

Nancy's vacation rentals are located within the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach on the highly desirable East End of St. Thomas, USVI near the village of Red Hook between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club.

I now have multiple vacation rentals at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach, all of which have been upgraded with new kitchens, bathrooms, cabinetry, and air conditioning.

From Beaching, scuba diving, snorkeling, SNUBA, ecotours, sailing, yachting, powerboating, submarining, rafting, jetskiing, parasailing, kayaking, horseback riding, parasailing, duty free shopping, dining (an abundance of excellent restaurants on the island), drinking, fishing, golfing, and tennis ... to visiting Paradise Point, Coral World, the St. Thomas Skyride ... to sight seeing (guided or unguided tours) ... to getting married ... or just relaxing on the condo deck and enjoying the view of the Caribbean Sea.

There is a LOT to do on the islands. Although there are plenty of things to do right on the island of St Thomas USVI, the great thing about being on the East End of St Thomas is that you have the ability to easily get off St Thomas to explore St Johns and the British Virgin Islands! Having been to St Thomas many times, the following remain my favorite things to do. They are not to be missed!

Visit Trunk Bay Beach on St Johns to relax and/or snorkel. To get there, take the Red Hook ferry to St Johns and then grab a cab to Trunk Bay beach.

Take your rental jeep on the car barge (to the left of the ferry terminal) to explore the island of St. John's. Visit the remote beaches on the far side such as Lampshur Bay. Eat at a roadside restaurant.

Rent a powerboat w/Captain in Red Hook and head out to Jost Van Dyke. The captain will help you with the best method to clear British customs. Visit Soggy Dollar Bar and enjoy a Painkiller #5 in White Bay. While there, also visit Ivan's Stress Free Bar and play bartender. Then hop over to Great Harbor to visit world famous Foxy's for another Painkiller! If you have time, get your captain to take you to Little Harbour and enjoy a meal at Sidney's Peace and Love. Make a day of Jost Van Dyke.

Have a Banana Daiquiri at Mountain Top on St. Thomas or enjoy an Adult Flavored milkshake at Udder Delight at the St. Thomas Dairy.

Red Hook is the place to go if you are looking for an evening of fun. This is where you will find the island-style party vibe that captures the whole block. This area offers lots of variety and many options in the way of nightlife. If bar-hopping is your style, this is a stop you don’t want to miss!

Check out Duffy's Love Shack - located in Red Hook Plaza parking lot opposite the Ferry dock.

All beaches in the Virgin Islands are open to the public. Non-hotel guests can usually rent chairs and water sports equipment at beach resorts. There are a LOT of great beaches on St. Thomas.

Out of the 44 beaches on the island, I prefer the beaches that have decent snorkeling, with a bar that serves Painkillers, and iguanas sunbathing. The beach that is right in front of the vacation rental is Cowpet Bay Beach and is a favorite with frequent island travelers.

For your first vacation to the USVIs, I recommend that you limit your island hopping to St. Thomas, St. John, and Jost Van Dyke. It will be all you can do to see and enjoy these islands. After visiting the islands many times over the years, I still enjoy these islands the most.

You will need to visit Tortola to clear British customs in order to go to Jost Van Dyke. While you are in Tortola, it is worth having drinks and lunch at Pusser's Landing.

I HIGHLY recommend you book a boat through John at St Thomas Boat Rental. We, the owners, have rented with him multiple times while in St Thomas and had a fantastic time. John took eight of us wherever we wanted to go and gave us a history lesson along the way. He even picked us up right at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach. We just packed a cooler. He provided snorkel equipment on the boat.

St. Thomas Boat Rental offers you a private boat for the day or half day. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride while St. Thomas Boat Rental’s captain handles the rest. Enjoy the beauty of the Virgin Islands at your pace, on your schedule with St. Thomas Boat Rental.

Walk across the street from the Elysian Beach Resort and set sail aboard The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas' own catamaran, the Lady Lynsey, offering day snorkel sails and sunset sails.

Or, enjoy one of the many charters available at the American Yacht Harbor in the village of Red Hook on the East End of St. Thomas, where you can discover the beauty of the Caribbean Sea as you explore white-sand beaches and snorkel through live coral reefs or 'The Caves' of Norman Island.

There are several island-hopping party destinations that are worth the trip such as any of the many bars on White Bay on Jost Van Dyke; generally rated G - Mild-to-Wild drunken behavior

Why the Owner Chose Cowpet Bay:
After visiting many islands throughout the Caribbean, we settled on buying property in Cowpet Bay on St. Thomas because of the large variety of activities in the area. We choose to purchase on the East End of the island for easy access to the people/car ferry and other boating activities available in Red Hook.
