Welcome to Paradise! Location? This is IT! Our 2 BR/2 BA condo is literally steps from the Caribbean Sea on beautiful, family-friendly, relaxed Bolongo Bay. When we are on-island, this is our home and we are certain that you will enjoy the many 'extras' we make available to you: 300-count organic cotton sheets, air sanitizers, eco-friendly toiletries, plush over-sized beach towels...we want our guests to be as comfortable as we like to be.
The Master Bath has a beautiful, over-sized walk-in shower. The second bathroom provides a tub/shower combo - perfect for a bubble bath! The Master Bedroom is beautifully appointed with a king-sized bed, and features sliders which open up to the glorious Caribbean Sea.
The second bedroom can be arranged as 2 twin beds or one king - you choose. The fully equipped kitchen and tropical Living Area open onto a 30' balcony...perfect for dining al fresco, or cocktails. Three pools, three restaurants, a PADI dive shop, and water sports...enjoy!
Welcome to Paradise in the US Virgin Islands!
The Caribbean brings to mind balmy breezes, crystal blue water, swaying palms, sandy beaches - effortless relaxation. Many people imagine it as the location sung about in 'Margaritaville'...'boat drinks', endless sunshine, secluded harbors.
Johnny Depp fans seek locales once frequented by the Pirates of the Caribbean. Whatever your imagination conjures up as you consider the Caribbean, be assured that you will find it here, on the multi-faceted island of St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands. Pirates?
The islands' capital, Charlotte Amalie, still has alleyways pirates roamed. Today they are home to exquisite duty-free shops and charming restaurants - but it is easy to envision Capt. Jack Sparrow here.
Margaritaville has been referred to as 'a state of mind'. If a swim-up beach bar, golfing above the sea, or lounging in a hammock while sipping a cold one is your Margaritaville - St. Thomas provides. We invite you to visit our tropical Paradise on Bolongo Bay.
Down by the Bay... Our 2BR/2BA suite is located at Watergate Villas East on Bolongo Bay. This location affords so many advantages! The bay is beautiful and has a large sandy beach - great for families. In the suite you will find plenty of beach 'toys' suitable for adults and children, guaranteeing fun in the sun and the sea. Sunfish, paddle boats, float mats, kayaks and swim vests can be rented at the bayside Beach Hut.
The onsite PADI dive shop and dive boat allows you to explore the undersea world w/o leaving 'home'. You will be staying steps from the sand, and our onsite Caribbean restaurant, Mim's Seaside Bistro. A short walk along the shore brings you to one of the 'Caribbean's Best Beach Bars' - Iggie's!
Their casual menus, weekly Caribbean Night Celebration (fire eater! glass walker!) and All-You-Can-Eat Crab Nights make them popular with visitors and local families. A bit further is the Lobster Grille, all day service and elegant seaside dining. Bolongo Bay has something for everyone!
Your place in Paradise... Step in to your non-smoking Paradise and immediately relax! The air is refreshing (UV air sanitizer). Walk through the tropical Living Area, open the slider and step onto your 30' long balcony. To the left? Bolongo Bay Beach and your oceanfront pool, turn right towards the vast Caribbean.
Inside, down the hall is your Master Suite and a beautiful king bed. Open the slider, lie down for a moment and allow the trade winds to caress you. This is Island Life - surrounded by artwork created by local artists, dark wood furnishings with tropical finesse, and a wall of glass with the turquoise sea beyond. Welcome to Paradise!
As your travel companions settle in to the large second bedroom, take a look around your bathroom - thick cotton towels, organic toiletries, your walk-in tile shower. The Guest Bath is equally lovely, the vanity area spacious and bright. The hall closet reveals chairs, coolers, towels and toys. You find your swimsuit and walk to the beach. Unpacking can wait!

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: About us: We come from very different backgrounds...the Connecticut boy who discovered a love of fishing, and the San Diego girl who longed for the warmth of the sun on the sand, a real ocean and definite "Changes in Latitudes"...without the congestion and pollution. After years spent cruising to nearly every Caribbean port, Paradise has become our family's island home (much to our two daughters' delight!). Joe is in charge of the mechanical improvements (the new security-code lock, new entry area, etc.), Sue oversees the interior upgrades, creating an allergen-free environment. Daughters Arden and Olivia remind us that the new beach towels, chairs, and coolers were purchased for a reason; that there are fish awaiting our dog biscuits just outside; and that we need to take advantage of this "One Particular Harbour" as often as possible!
Why the Owner Chose Bolongo Bay: Sue's initial plan was to find a place to purchase on St. John - the beaches are so beautiful! So, she rented a car and drove from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay - on the curviest, narrowest road she had ever driven on - and decided then and there that St. John would be the perfect place for a day trip from her island home on St. Thomas! But, where on St. Thomas? Time for research! She brought her pals Peggy (real estate agent) and Wendy (the voice of reason) to the island, leaving Joe at home. We visited nearly every beach and the surrounding properties - very serious work! The perfect place would have a beach hut, clean sand, a place to get food, a beach bar, a safe place for children to swim, and a welcoming "feel" to it. After much exploration and evaluation we decided that our Home Base for our research - Bolongo Bay - was the best place to be! The Offer to Purchase was signed while wearing bathing suits on the sand...Paradise!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: After seeing many vacation properties, this was the one that caused us to pause and say "This is IT!". The non-stop views; the gentle breeze coming into the Living Area, Kitchen, and the Master Bedroom; and the glorious Caribbean right outside - a fantastic location! This particular condo is so beautifully appointed and, at the same time, extremely comfortable...a casual elegance with a tropical vibe. We have added a few touches to create an allergen-free environment so that the molds and mildew that are prevalent in the tropics won't grow here. The 100% cotton bedding (organic, if you wish), plush cotton towels, and large variety of pillows transport you to a level of comfort not often experienced in "rental units"...because this is not a rental property. This is our island home and we welcome you to share it when we are not on-island. Enjoy!
