  • Another beautiful stay at Crystal Cove

    "Thank you again for another fantastic stay at your beautiful condo at Crystal Cove. After a 10 day sail trip we were very happy to have long showers, a big comfy bed and air conditioning! Your condo is even better than pictured and the accessibility to the most beautiful beach and bay on the island is fantastic. Everything is very clean and well maintained. It feels like you are staying at a relatives home. Norma leaves basics/staples in the cabinets and refrigerator which is a nice touch. We have no need to leave the property once we arrive and are content to make our own meals in a kitchen that has everything you need. We love to take a cooler to the beach to waste away the day gazing out at St. John and the most beautiful blue water you have ever seen. The snorkeling in the bay this year was fantastic with many large turtles and rays seen. We hope to return in 2 years to again enjoy your fabulous accommodations."

  • Beautiful Beach Vacation

    "We are a family of 5 with 3 kids, ages 4, 8, and 10 years. We wanted a beautiful beach for snorkeling with the amenities of home. We found it at Sapphire Beach! The condo was comfortable with some up-grades, but it had all that we needed. The air conditioning, washer and dryer and kitchen appliances worked well. The rooms were spacious and it was great to have 3 full baths. But the location really took the cake. The beach was gorgeous with lots of opportunities for beginner snorkelers. The condo is also well situated. It is close to Red Hook where you can get the ferry to St. John and where there are plenty of restaurants. It is about 45 minutes from the airport and Charlotte Amelie. It is about 15 minutes to Coral World which was a fun morning activity with kids. The weather was gorgeous: 85 degrees and sunny the whole week. After the touch winter in the Northeast, it was just what our family needed."

  • Great Vacation!

    "We just arrived back home from a 16 wonderful day stay at this Sapphire Beach Marina Condo. The condo and facilities were some of the best that we have had on a vacation and we have stayed all over the world - using VRBO rentals. The condo is stocked with the upscaled necessities that make a home away from home feel and the view out to the marina, ocean, and other islands is incredible. We rented a car for 6 days, but found that the Restaurant/Grill on site with good food and quality entertainment every night or short trip into Red Hook was pretty much what we found to be the best! We will go back and will stay here again!"

  • Very Happy!!!!

    "In a nutshell our stay was great. Our room was very nice and clean. Plenty of room for 4 of us. View was great along with the trade winds at night. Loved sitting outside at night watching the boats head to and from St. John. The beach itself is really great for snorkeling and just relaxing along with some rocks for searching for star fish etc. There seemed to be at one time a bar at the pool but it is now shut down whichs makes it very quiet. Would have been nice for some night life. Van was very pleasant to talk to and answer any questions we had. The listing tells it like it is no surprises. Keep in mind this is not like going to a five star hotel but if you want peace and quiet and and being right on the beach with great views this is the place for you. Highly recomended."

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.
