Pavilions and Pools cottage description
Frommer's Guide calls Pavilions & Pools:'the premier choice for a romantic getaway'. Your private villa features floor to ceiling glass doors opening onto your very own private pool. It goes on to say that: 'It's perfect for those who want to run around nude as Adam and Eve; Eve and Eve or Adam and Adam'. With a privacy wall and gate to your villa you do not have to see another person until you leave.
Everything you need to have a good time is in your private villa is here. Two comfortable sofas; new Serta perfect sleeper mattress on your king four poster bed.
Enjoy your morning coffee with your feet up around your private pool as you watch humming birds and bananaquits sipping on tropical flowers.
Later if you wish you can enjoy drinks and a poolside Barbecue. Your view on one side is of lush, tropical jungle and beyond it, the sea and islands.
Enjoy a relaxing freshwater shower in your new exotic sunken garden bathroom.
Cook at home in a well equipped kitchen and relax in front of a flat screen TV with movie and sports channels. Sign up for our internet service and check your email at your convenience without having to leave your cottage.
If you don't feel like cooking stroll down a landscaped pathway to our lively and inexpensive english pub/restaurant Cheers Mate.
You can walk to some of the island's most beautiful beaches in 5 minutes. Turn left out of the gate to get to Sapphire Beach. Pelican Beach, next door to it, boasts some of the most dramatic coral reefs to snorkel.
Walk over to the Sapphire Beach to the Marina to take a day sail to St. John or a spectacular power boat trip around the British Virgin islands or take a sail over the National Park in St. John.
Try your hand at deep fishing, bring your catch home and BBQ them in the garden
Immediately to the north of the resort is the National Park with pristine Lindquist (Smith) Beach. Sit under a the shade of a seagrape tree and enjoy the perfect white coral crescent beach and the sea in four shades of blue. It's beautiful and always quiet. Lindquist Beach is the prettiest unspoiled beach on the island and there is nothing but jungle behind you.
You are only 5 minutes away from the lively night life of Red Hook and a wide variety of restaurants and bars. There is also a grocery store, secretarial service, doctor, a dive shop and musical entertainment.
The only hourly ferry shuttle runs from Red Hook to Cruz Bay so that you can go over to St. John for dinner or to listen to music. There is also a drive-on/drive-off ferry (the barge) so that you can drive around the island of St John and make it a two center vacation.
You will want to visit St. John at least twice because there are more world class beaches there than you can visit in one day. You can also take an interesting tour of the old Sugar Mill at Annaberg.
This is the perfect location for anyone who does not want to drive. It's $1 to Red Hook on the dollar bus! You can easily walk to the beaches. There are no hills and steps here. You are only 5 minutes from Red Hook and new ferry terminal so you can take trips to St. John and explore the BVI. We are on the dollar bus route so this is one of the few locations on island near beaches where you can save big by not renting a car.

ReviewsWrite a review
Pavilions and Pools is a combination of hotel-owned and privately-owned condo units. The concept interested me (a private pool), but I had read reviews on hotel-review sites that the units were showing their age. This particular unit is privately owned by a fabulous lady (Chris), who promised that the unit had been updated. She did not disappoint! The King Size bed was very comfortable, with very nice sheets. The remodeled bathroom was terrific, as were the spacious living area and pool area. We ate out frequently, so I can't tell you about the kitchen. TV with cable, and internet access available for a small fee, but very slow (I hear that is common on St Thomas). The location was handy -- walking access to nice beaches, and to the Sapphire Marina (try New Horizons for the BVI/Baths trip ... fun crew). Red Hook, with restaurants, a larger marina, and the ferry to St Johns, is a few minutes away by car or taxi. I agree with everything in the posting, with the exception of local snorkeling. Visit St Johns for that activity. In summary, a highly recommended property.

Best stay ! Privacy !!!!
Best stay ! Privacy !!!!
I stayed at Chris's private pools and pavilion location and it was exactly as she described ! The place was clean and very comfortable. Beach towels were provided and the pool area was very clean. The grill was perfect, grilled out every day and midnight swims were perfect. The price I paid was very reasonable and well worth it considering the other places offered much less for the money. Chris was always available if I needed anyhting and helped with recommendations on the best places to see and visit. I would definetly recommend this place to anyone looking for value and comfort. Plus, how cool is it to take a dip in private anytime you want !

Just recently stayed at Pavilions and Pools. Thanks Chris for making it so easy from start to finish at staying at your quiet villa. You were able to help us in giving us all the to dos in the area. Although Hurricane Isaac did not cooperate with the weather, we still enjoyed swimming in the pool during the heavy rain and walking down to the beach (only 5 minutes away) to watch the waves and listen to the wind blow. You have a nice property and I would recommend a relaxing stay in your villa.

Truly Wonderful Experience!
Truly Wonderful Experience!
This stay was fantastic! The room was extremely spacious, private and very cozy - perfect for an island getaway! I stayed with two other individuals, and we found the place to be perfect for our needs. The kitchen and deck area were such a treat for the three of us; we found ourselves cooking breakfast and making coffee as we pleased and enjoying it out on the deck before starting our day. Chris was very helpful and accommodating, always offering any tips/helpful advice as we needed. She was great about letting us do our thing while only checking in to make sure we found everything we needed. Overall, a highly recommended stay - I would definitely come back again!

About the owner: I have worked in the hospitality field for many years and have been an island resident for 20 years. I have traveled extensively throughout the islands and offer you a complimentary 24/7 concierge service so that you will get the most out of your vacation. You will arrive with a clear plan of what you want to see and do. My promise is that you will never miss anything that would special to you. You will also save time and money along the way. Let me show you around our beautiful islands.........
Why the Owner Chose Pavilions and Pools:
Because sometimes do not want to navigate the steps and hills at other east end resorts. At Pavilions & Pools you can manage without a car and can walk to the beach on flat land. There are no steps here! Also some people on honeymoons want to be private. The villas here are famous for their seclusion. Pavilions & Pools is the only condo I know where barbeques are permitted. At your private villa you can do what you want. At the same time you are as close as can be to Red Hook for groceries and its' lively night life. You are also close to the new ferry terminal with its shuttle ferry service to St John and ferries to other islands in the BVI.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
PRIVACY! QUIET,ROMANTIC, ECO COTTAGE ON EDGE OF NATIONAL PARK. See Hummingbirds, butterflies, deer, chickens and all kinds of wild life and wild flowers.
