Recent East End property reviews

  • Upstairs condo at Sapphire Beach, Crystal Cove

    "Fantastic!! Would highly recommend this to anyone. Working with the owner was great. Very nice, clean condo. Would definitely request this same condo again. The management on the property was excellent too, if we had any problem or concern they were on it immediately! The beach is so close. Quality, affordable condos near Red Hook, like this one, are the best and safest places to be on the island. This is our 2nd year in coming here and this is where I would prefer to stay for sure!"

  • Perfect St. Thomas Experience

    "We had a wonderful time in Sapphire Village. The condo has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. We used the kitchen to make breakfast every morning and had everything we needed. The balcony was perfect for enjoying the amazing view and enjoying meals and drinks. Sapphire was a short 5 minute walk and a very nice beach. For lunch make sure to check out the "Off The Grid" food truck at the entrance of Sapphire Village for some amazing BBQ. Red Hook is a short cab ride or drive and has great restaurants and easy access to the ferry to St. John. We will definitely come back!"

  • WOW is the only way to describe the view from this unit. It’s breath taking

    "WOW is the only way to describe the view from this unit. It’s breath taking. Everything you‘ll need to spend the day at the beach is inside the condo beach chairs, cooler, snorkel gear and towels. If you are unlucky enough like us to have stay in due to rain storm during the evening don’t worry there is everything you need to make some painkillers cook a meal and listen to some music, I do advise bringing an auxiliary cable if you have a newer iPhone model . The condo is impeccably clean and well maintained; sugar beach is less than a minute walk from the condo also Panga’s and one of the 3 pools are within 2 minute walk. The staff that runs the Point Pleasant property now is extremely helpful as I just found out upon arrival they just took over on April 1st 2014. They assisted us with grocery shopping and even picking us up a few times from the red hook area. They operate a shuttle starting from 8am the latest we called for was around 8pm so not sure till what time the shuttle runs. Also they will pick you up from your condo and take you wherever they can drive within the property if you do not feel like walking or have limited mobility. Now about the booking process Ben was extremely helpful and it was very quick and simple no hassles. What you see in pictures does not do the condo justice really. It is closest to red hook out of all the areas to hang out and taking the ferry over to St. John is very easy. Also if you have any activities planned for early in the morning arrange your taxis the day ahead. I stayed for 4 nights with my 2 sisters and as you know us women can over pack. There was enough room for all our things. I will definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you for an amazing stay!!"

  • Wonderful week on the beach...

    "I took my two grown children and my grown grandson. We had a great week. The attention to detail really made a difference in navigating a new place and making each day enjoyable. My girls gave it a 10. Would recommend to everyone. It's a beautiful place."

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.

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.
