Cowpet Bay condo description
Only 30 steps will put you at the waters edge! A well decorated, clean and comfortable beachfront condo will make you feel that you are at the perfect island home away from home. Located in the gated condominium complex of the Anchorage, this condo's view of the beach is easily among the best in the complex. Whether you are sitting on the living room sofa, cooking in the kitchen, chilling on the balcony, or relaxing in the master bedroom....you can view the boats ( from the adjacent St. Thomas Yatch Club ) dancing in the water as the cool island breezes circulate throughout the unit. The covered patio is perfect for breakfast at sunrise or you may prefer to dine in the central air conditioned dining room. Or you can take up residence on the balcony and just simply let the views captivate your mind while you count the neighboring islands that seem so close...you could almost touch them !. If you prefer lounging by the pool, it is located right next to the beach and includes a covered lanai.
The grounds are meticulously maintained and include tennis courts that you can play day or night and bike paths and a Gym. The complex has approximately 70 units with 50 percent of the units being occupied by full time residents. The master bedroom has a king size bed, two twin beds in the second bedroom and the living room has a sofa and chair that converts to another double and twin bed. There are new appliances in the kitchen, a flat screen TV in the living room, and a small TV in master BR with cable included. Should you wish maid service, a call is all that is required. Local calls are included and Wi-Fi internet service is available.
A short drive to nearby Red Hook takes you to the easily accessible Ferry Terminal where you can start your island hopping adventure to the other U.S. and British Virgin Islands, just 30-60 minutes away. In Red Hook, you'll also find several popular restaurants & bars, banks, transportation services and supermarkets. A 15 minute drive from the Anchorage will take you to the spectacular Mahogany Run Golf Course with 18 holes that easily ranks among the best ( even a 'Tiger' has been challenged by it ). St. Thomas is known as a shopper's paradise - a 20 minute ride to downtown Charlotte Amalie will present you with great selections.
We look forward to having you over at ' Idle Awhile ' so come soak up the island experience in a very private and intimate setting on America's paradise...St. Thomas, USVI

This review is long overdue...! It's been almost a year my friend and I visited St. Thomas (and St. John's) and recently I have been thinking of the four days lived on the island. My friend and I had previously visited St. Thomas, but we were on a cruise and only spent a few hours. We were so enamored with the island's blue waters - we knew we would return. This time we flew from NYC to St. Thomas. Upon arrival, we rented a car and drove from the airport to the condo (it was approximately a 40-minute drive). I am sure it is shorter drive for a native, but the roads were new to us and driving on the right-side was an adjustment. Initially, we were confused since the instructions led us to a condominium complex to pick up the keys, but we had to drive approximately five minutes to the actual condo where we would be staying. However, one of the attendants offered for us to drive behind him so we could follow him to our final destination. When we arrived there available parking spaces and the apt. was being cleaned -but we were okay with that and the housekeeper was friendly and accommodating. The condo is exactly as pictured. It has two bedrooms, large living area and each bedroom has its own bathroom. I slept well in the yellow room with the twin beds. It was dark and quiet. Slept soundly. Every morning we enjoyed eating breakfast on the terrace and savored the view of the bay. The apartment itself is comfortable and well-equipped. One afternoon we also enjoyed laying out by the pool. One night we visited the Ritz Hotel and had a lovely dinner. Megan's Bay (a well-know beach) was one of the highlights of the trip! We spent the day on this pristine beach, had some fried food from the nearby restaurant --a perfect day. The other days we drove around the island, went window shopping, and admired the colonial architecture of the buildings. On a different day we took the ferry to St. John's (the ferry is very close to the condominium). At St. John's we took a hike and visited the local beaches, and went to the V.I. be store, and bought a silver, coral red ring, which has become one of my favorites. It was a lovely long-extended weekend. I highly recommend this place for your stay. I look forward to return (and I will like to stay here, if I can)!!!!!

My stay at the Anchorage in February was great! If you want to stay at a condo that is clean, secure, quiet and lovely the Anchorage is it. It boasts a pool and tennis court not to mention the private beach that is in view from the balcony. What is really great is that it is minutes from the "happenings" in Redhook. You are also very close to many beach club bars and restaurants. The Ritz Carlton is one of them. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay!

Just got back from St. Thomas a couple weeks ago, and I'm ready to book this condo again for my next trip down to the Virgin Islands this summer. The unit exceeded all our expectations, extremely clean, looks just like the pictures and it had everything we needed to feel at home. The best feature was the condo's location steps away from the beach, commnunity pool and tennis courts you couldn't get closer if you tried. The views of St. John are awesome as well we went home with great pictures and memories. The condo was in a very safe neighborhood close to Red Hook with tons of eatting options and nightlife, I would suggest renting a car to get aroun. The complex is gated and had plenty of parking. Looking forward to my next trip already can't say enough how pleased we were.

My Visit To St. Thomas
My Visit To St. Thomas
A friend of mine and I went to St. Thomas in September of this yea, we stayed at the Anchorage. We expected to find a hotel atmosphere; however, we were pleasantly surprised to find a “home” ambiance; clean, spacious, nicely decorated with all appliances included. The condo was great; we were able to cook some meals, which is a tremendous plus; eating out can be costly on the Island. The pool and the beach area were never crowded, so we had it to ourselves most of the time. This is a clean, enjoyable and secluded beach; a bit rocky nonetheless you can still enjoy the water and the wonderful view. As per leisure, you cannot beat the panorama provided by Cowpet bay. The place is located next to the St. Thomas Yacht Club, so scenery is full with boats anchored nearby its delightful. A rental car is definitely necessary to get around the area, especially if you want to experience the magic of this Island in its fullness; there are several beaches, shopping areas, and breathtaking views. Overall, I loved the Anchorage and will return again and again. Ana, New York
