  • Luxury 3 Bedroom Ritz Carlton St. Thomas

    "Spacious, beautifully appointed unit! Three separate balconies, separate master baths provide privacy and lots of room to enjoy. The unit is clean, well-maintained and luxuriously appointed. The resort provides great luncheon options on-site, as well as a great gym and spa. Great restaurants in nearby Red Hook. Overall a wonderful experience. Highly recommended!!!"

  • Perfect vacation rental!

    "My wife and I stayed at Eamon's vacation rental in Sapphire Village for one week in mid August, 2014. Sapphire Village is a resort, located just minutes from Red Hook and Charlotte Amalie. The location is absolutely superb whether you want to relax at the resort which features two pools, a bar/grill pub style restaurant, a marina, and a beach, all within minutes walking distance. If you don't want to stay on the resort, I recommend you rent a vehicle; you can get anywhere on the island within an hour drive, allowing you to visit all the beautiful beaches. One thing to note is that the resort is built on a giant hill, so if you go to the beach, be prepared to hike back up that hill! The rental itself was perfect for the two of us. Unlike some properties listed on VRBO, Eamon's place is *exactly* as pictured. The unit was very clean when we arrived and had no bugs. The unit includes a full (small) kitchen, so cooking meals is very easy to do, and much cheaper than eating out several times a day. However, the grocery stores (Cost-U-Less, Walgreens, K-Mart, and Food Center) are all about 15 minutes away, so you'll have to plan accordingly. The rental is also well stocked with items for activities, including a small library of books (including a *very* useful Frommer's guide to the Virgin Islands), and snorkel gear. We had brought our own masks and snorkels, but being able to borrow fins for free was a very generous and unexpected perk! While visiting, we were able to visit Magens Bay, Hull Bay, Sapphire Beach, Coki Beach, Lindquist Bay, Turtle Cove (Buck Island) and Bolongo Bay. Of those, our favorite local snorkel destination was Coki Beach, the water was beautiful and the reefs were plentiful; however, Lindquist, Sapphire, Hull, and Turtle Cove were very close runners up. Many beaches offer water sport rentals (snorkel sets, kayaks, stand-up-paddle board, etc.), but Bolongo Bay was the only location that rented small sailboats (Hobie Catamarans). I rated this rental with 5 stars because it truly met or exceeded all our expectations, and Eamon (and Alice, the property manager) were both very helpful. We would recommend this rental to anyone considering visiting the island."

  • Excellent rental in St Thomas!

    "Spent a week at this outstanding property in St Thomas. Tim was very responsive to our e-mail, answered our questions promptly, and arranged a seamless stay at the Ritz Carlton Club. Thanks to Tim's efforts, we were upgraded to a 3 bedroom unit, which was fantastic. This setup is ideal for families -- bedrooms with ample space, each with its own bath, balconies overlooking the water, and full kitchen. We have small kids and stayed on the resort for most of our stay. With 4 restaurants, 3 pools, and a huge beach, there was plenty to do, and plenty of room for guests. The resort was busy while we were there, yet we had no trouble getting good beach chairs or a table for dinner. We highly recommend working with Tim -- our stay cost about as much as a hotel room for the same period and was a far better option for us."

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.
