  • Pool and Beauty

    "This place was amazing! It had it all: 1. A stones throw from Red Hook, Ferries to St. John and other locations, Safire Beach, restaurants, etc. 2. You have your own pool, patio, and grill. All of which are completely private. 3. Nice flowers and plants around patio and pool. 4. The unit has floor to ceiling windows for half of the walls letting in plenty of light and letting you see the beauty from your bed, living room, and kitchen. 5. Chris, the owner, is very helpful and can help guide you to the best of the island attractions and make your trip more enjoyable."

  • Comfortable home away from home

    "We enjoyed our stay at Crystal Cove. The proximity to the beach was a plus and it was fun catching sight of the iguanas. If we were to do it again, we'd rent a car. It was just not safe to walk into town (Red Hook) because the traffic on the road is nuts and there is no place to walk. The Safari (local bus-$1 per person) is a great option but it only goes INTO town ... you need to get a cab back @ $5 per person. Closest grocery store is about 2 miles and very expensive. Again, you take the Safari there but have to take a cab back. Our favorite place to eat in Red Hook was Tap & Still.....great hamburgers and only $7. Great happy hour prices too! We also took the ferry to St. John. Wish we'd gone earlier in the day though.....so much to do and not enough time to do it. Only negative we had with the condo was the bed. While it was nice to have a king size bed, for us, the mattress was just too hard and the sheets slippery because of the type of mattress pad on the bed. It would have been nice to have room-darkening shades on the bedroom windows too because of the light coming from the parking lot behind the condo. Minor discomforts but enough to make a comment about. I would recommend this condo if you like hard beds because the rest of the stay was great."

  • Great place at a great value.

    "Had a great stay in LeeAnn's condo this past week. We were a group of 6, 4 adults and 2 small children. The condo was just as advertised and looks like it does in the pictures. The upstairs bedroom was very nice with its private balcony and the downstairs sofa had a hideaway bed so plenty of room for all of us. The bottom floor also had a nice balcony with a table and chair. The onsite 2 level pool was nice and clean and the condo staff were friendly and always busy maintaining the property. At the time we were there the dive shop, lobby and extra parking lot was closed due to differences between dive shop owner and COA. This actually worked to our advantage because it kept the cruisers out and sapphire beach nice and quiet. I would highly recommend C308 and I hope to return some day again. Also LeeAnn, Caryl and Smitty were great with answering questions and helping us out."

  • Perfect condo

    "My husband and 2 children spent 5 days in d30 we loved it, we have no complaints, it was very spacious,clean, modern! The property managers alice and Bernie were right on site, we got beach towels extra sheets blankets easily. If I had to suggest 1 thing for improvement it would be to have beach chairs that we could pack in the jeep and take with us to other islands."

East End Travel Tips

Situated just east of Puerto Rico, the small Caribbean Island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands is known for its beautiful beaches, shopping and dining. The quieter East End area makes a pleasant contrast with the busy capital and port of Charlotte Amalie. The quiet town of Red Hook with its red-tiled homes overlooking Pillsbury Sound has a relaxed atmosphere, uncrowded beaches and spectacular dive sites. Along the streets of this charming town, the Havensight Mall offers great Caribbean wares at duty-free prices and there is a surprisingly vibrant nightlife after dark. Red Hook lodging is a great place to find a cold drink, casual dining and party music.

Enjoy Staying at East End St. Thomas Vacation Rentals

While some parts of St. Thomas offer only five-star hotels, the East End is much more relaxed and laid-back. It is the perfect place to rent a vacation rental home and live the island life. Vacation rentals are well located within easy reach of the local beaches and often have great views. Choose a small private villa or share the cost with family and friends and book one of the larger villas, often with their own swimming pool, terrace or gardens. The charming East End town of Red Hook has plenty of supermarkets to stock up on food and drink. There are also many local restaurants for those who do not want to cook. East End vacation rentals are the perfect ways to experience the more intimate side of Caribbean living.

Things to do Around East End St. Thomas Villas

During the day, most visitors head for the beach. Relax in the sunshine and swim in the crystal-clear water on one of the beaches below the town of Red Hook. Bluebeard Beach and Sapphire Beach are both family-friendly destinations with powdery sands bordered by blue Caribbean waters. Pillsbury Sound on St. Thomas’s East end is one of the best areas for active watersports with snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing and deep sea fishing. Coral World Ocean park offers a great day out. It has more than 150,000 gallons of aquariums and the Underwater Observatory gives great views of coral reefs and brightly colored fish.

The rocky trails around Vessup Bay are popular with hikers. You can also take a stroll along the water’s edge at Secret Harbor Beach. Golf, boating, parasailing, snorkeling, diving and horseback riding are all available or you can visit a local beauty spa for a day of pampering.
