Cowpet Bay condo description

Welcome to East End Eden I, our 1 bedroom, 2 bath luxury beachfront condominium just steps from the beach at the Elysian Beach Resort on secluded Cowpet Bay. See Our Property Website Link Below for rate details and more information. The only true one bedroom condo at the Elysian available for rent, it has a fully equipped kitchen and two full baths. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or a family vacation with 1-2 young children, the condo has everything you need for that special trip. The condo comfortably accommodates 2-4 guests. Located only 100 yards from the white sand beach on Cowpet Bay, the condo’s two private balconies offer spectacular views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. The bedroom has a king-size bed with Tempur-pedic mattress, full bath with tub/shower, a private balcony, flat screen LCD TV and DVD player. The living room has a queen-size Murphy bed with a comfortable mattress, a private balcony, TV, DVD player and a stereo with iPod dock. There is a second full bath off the kitchen and a laundry closet with full size washer and dryer.


As our guests, you have access to all of the amenities at the Elysian including the pool with its grotto, waterfall and hot tub, tennis court, and water sport rental shack. There is wonderful snorkeling on the reef immediately offshore in Cowpet Bay. We have several sets of snorkeling equipment in various sizes for our guests to use. Other sets may be rented at the Elysian beach shack. Lounge chairs are provided at no charge on the palm-lined beach, which also has ample shade for those who need it. Beach towels are also provided at no charge from the Elysian. There are two restaurants on the resort property. Sangria's Beachside Bistro offers a more casual menu. Caribbean Fish Market offers a more upscale dining experience.

                      The condo is located just 11 miles from the airport and only two miles from Red Hook with its many shops and restaurants. The ferries to St. John and the British Virgin Islands leave regularly from the docks in Red Hook. There are also numerous other recreational opportunities on the East End including deep-sea sport fishing, para sailing, jet skiing, and eco-kayaking. Charlotte Amalie, near the airport, is the main town on the island and is famous as the shopping mecca of the Caribbean.

                      Other Activities: Shopping, Take a kayaking/snorkeling adventure with VI Ecotours, Visit world famous Magens Bay Beach

                      Golf: Enjoy a round of golf on scenic, challenging, Fazio designed Mahogany Run Golf Course, home of The Devil's Triangle. The golf course is located approximately 20 minutes from the Elysian Beach Resort.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We live outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We first visited St. Thomas in March 2007 and immediately fell in love with the Island. After two more trips, all of which were spent at the Elysian in a colleague's condo, we decided we needed our own place. We purchased a 2 bedroom unit in 2009 (VRBO # 231249) and we've had so much fun meeting new guests (if only by phone or email)and helping them have a great Caribbean vacation, that we decided to buy a one bedroom unit in 2010. Eventually we intend to spend large portions of our retirement years in our condos, but for now we enjoy frequent vacations there and helping create memorable vacations for our guests.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cowpet Bay:
                      From the moment we set foot on Cowpet Bay Beach we could feel the tensions leave us and we knew that this was the place we wanted to own a vacation home. St. Thomas is a US territory and easily accessible from the East Coast and most of the mainland US. The seclusion of Cowpet Bay and the gentle waves make it ideal for relaxing and recharging! But if you want a go-go vacation there are so many great beaches on St. Thomas and nearby St. John and the variety of restaurants on St. Thomas is amazing for an island that is only about 38 square miles. In short, we found our East End Eden so we decided to buy a condo or two!
