Bolongo Bay condo description

Paradise Too!, one of the few studios located on Bolongo Bay, is our Island Home when it is "just us". Purchased in the spring of 2010, this gem has been completely refurbished, redecorated, and updated to our specifications. Because it is our personal retreat, we have added touches that we enjoy in our home on the mainland: a tiled walk-in shower, fluffy 100% cotton towels, CuisinArt stainless cookware, luxurious 100% cotton 300 ct. bedding, a Dressing Area, gorgeous artwork by St. Thomas resident Jonna White. Decorative items and restful, tropical fabrics blend to create a casually elegant and wonderfully restful Tropical Retreat for honeymooners, that "special anniversary", or two people needing to escape from it all.

Walk out the oversized sliding glass door (yes, also new!) and onto your personal patio. Sit at the glass-topped table with your morning coffee, surrounded by the striking fan palms and the sound of the gentle waves. This is Paradise Too! With a view of the Caribbean most people can only dream about, you will lack for nothing in your lovely poolside vacation home. You will have access to three pools - all very different.

Along the waterfront are three restaurants. Mim's Seafood Bistro is famous for her lobster and all you can eat shrimp nights. The Lobster Grille serves scrumptious breakfasts, lunch, and dinner. Iggie's Beach Bar and Grill is popular island-wide for its all you can eat crab nights and the Caribbean Buffet and Show. Iggies always has something entertaining going on in the evening!

An array of activities are available to our Guests. Tennis courts and basketball courts are onsite. Walk down 6 steps from the oceanfront pool and you will find yourself on a sandy path. Follow the shoreline to the large sandy beach of Bolongo Bay. A PADI dive shop provides free scuba lessons, equipment rentals, and diving and snorkeling excursions. At the dock is the pride of the Resort, Heavenly Days - a 53' catamaran.

The resort's Activities Desk is happy to book a sunset sail or snorkel trip aboard this cat. A well-stocked Beach Hut is available for rentals of a large variety of non-motorized water sports (kayaks, windsurfers, hobie cats, etc.). Your beach days are no problem as you will find everything you might need in your Paradise Too! Beach chairs, oversized towels, masks and snorkels, coolers and noodles are just waiting to hit the sand! Sea turtles and rays are frequently seen when snorkeling on the reef - don't forget the water camera!

Your location on Bolongo Bay puts you in the most central location on the island! An 8 mile drive west and you are in Charlotte Amalie. The capitol of the USVI, this is now one of the largest duty-free shopping areas in the world! Walking down the narrow alleys and the centuries-old architecture will conjure up visions of the pirates that roamed these byways. Just past the shopping area lies Frenchtown...and some of the best cafes and restaurants on the island.

Leave Bolongo and drive 8 miles north to arrive in the quaint town of Red Hook - the yachting capitol of St. Thomas. Ferries to St. John and the BVI depart from here. Most charter boats (fishing, sailing, etc.) are docked here. Red Hook also is home to a large variety of restaurants and shops. Past Red Hook lies the Fazio designed Mahogany Run Golf Course. Open to the public, Mahogany Run features the Devils Triangle - a golfer's challenge. Magen's Bay, recognized as one of the Ten Most Beautiful Beaches in the World is located 30 minutes west of Bolongo Bay.

With so much to see and do, you will need to remember to relax! Welcome to Paradise Too!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: She is a beach gal from San Diego that longed for the sun, sand, and sea. He is a New England native that discovered a love of fishing. He promised that she would not grow old shoveling snow, and so the search began to find that "one particular harbor". After visiting many of the Caribbean islands, and much discussion, a decision was reached...the USVI would be perfect! He was the handyman, she was the decorator, and our Island Home is now a reality!

                      Why the Owner Chose Bolongo Bay:
                      Our initial thought was to buy on St. John. We rented a car and drove the narrow, winding road from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay. One daughter complained of car-sickness, Sue was amazed at how long it took ("It looks so short on the map!") and we changed plans then and there...St. Thomas would be our Island Home! A Search Party consisting of Sue and her pals Peggy (the real estate agent) and Wendy (the voice of reason), visited every waterfront condo on the island and decided that Bolongo Bay made the most sense as it had the most to offer. A year later, Sue and Peggy returned in search of a studio and Paradise Too! caught our eye as it was near the sand and the pool...what more could we want?

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      This is our Island Home when it is "just us". We love waking up and looking out over the sea, the leisurely morning coffee on the private patio as we watch the sailboats go by and the hummingbirds zoom from feeder to feeder, and being the first footprints in the sand during our morning walk along the shore. It is so relaxing! Of course we also love watching the fire eater, glass walker, and moko jumby during Iggie's Caribbean Show every week, and all you can eat shrimp night at Mim's Seaside Bistro at the water's edge! With three very different pools, the three restaurants, and the many activities available on Bolongo Bay, we really don't have to leave to have a great time!
