  • CLEAN, QUIET, AND PICTURESQUE

    "The home was perfect! We enjoyed it immensely... it was clean, had a great views and completely equipped with everything we needed to make our stay an enjoyable one, from bottles of cruzan rum to spare eye contact solution (they cover every angle). Property manager met us at the airport and made us feel like VIP's every step of the way. We had many of our meals out on the deck which was great. Thank you very much for sharing your slice of paradise with us! Can't wait till next time!"

  • 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 villa for a group

    "Secret Haven was amazing! It was welcoming, clean, and so convenient (just a short cab ride) to Red Hook and local attractions. The owner gave us some great advice about local hot spots (we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at XO!), plus she was flexible and accommodating. We were blown away by her hospitality. Our group of nine had a great time relaxing by the pool and drinking sangria on the wrap-around deck. The views of the ocean are amazing, especially when you're looking out from the unbelievably comfortable bed in the Master bedroom. This villa was everything we could have hoped for."

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.
