  • We love this condo.

    "My friends and I have just finished our third extended stay at this condo. The unit is very clean, quiet and contains everything you need for a fabulous vacation including WiFi and cable TV. The condo itself is even better than the picture and has a million dollar view of the Caribbean and St. John. The pool and beach are a very short walk and are kept very clean. Beach chairs and cooler is furnished in condo for your use. The beach is great for swimming and snorkeling. Food is available on the beach at a open air cabana for breakfast, lunch and a variety of drinks. The Sapphire grill, a short walk up the hill, also serves lunch and dinner and has music many nights. The town of Red Hook is only a short taxi ride away and has an array of food, drinks and entertainment. Many grocery stores are a short ride away. We do not rent a car and have no trouble getting around. The $1.00 safari bus is available on the main road about every 15 minutes. With a little practice you can get almost everywhere on this affordable means of travel. This is an island of tourist so taxies are everywhere. Even though the taxi stand on site has been closed you can call one anytime of the night or day. Phone number for taxies available in condo. The rates are very reasonable. If you do rent a car ample parking is available on site. The resort is under renovation but this has no effect on your everyday activities and the end result will be worth it. AT&T has the only cell towers on the islands. All other companies must pay roaming charges which is very expensive. I bought a used AT&T Go phone for use on the island. The east end location of this condo is your gateway to St. John. A short ferry ride from Red Hook will take you to Cruz Bay and the beaches of St. John. It's like getting two islands for the price of one. The marina in front of unit has many boat tours available at a reasonable rate. We always take at least one boat tour on every visit. We have found the people are very friendly and see the same people come back every year. We feel extremely safe with the security at the entrance and security constantly walking the grounds. We love this condo and plan on visiting for many years to come."

  • Good experience

    "This was our first time in doing a VRBO. Greg was very responsive to both email and telephone. A major problem was the lack of wireless. I called Greg and told him and he had a firm come out and fix it the next day. It was fine after that. The condo was fine. It was clean and everything was functional. It was about 25 steps from the water which we snorkled in three times. We were not happy with the bed, but we have had worse in hotels. The bed was long enough but narrower than a true king. The condo is a studio with a kitchen. All appliances worked just fine and the utensils were good. All tile floor. I had problems with the lock and could not get it, but my wife got it on the first try. My glasses were stolen from the back table on our patio. The power went out once and the telephone did not work. I do not blame Greg or Aimee for that, rather it is life on the Virgin Islands. I called Greg about the power going out and it turns out that he keeps matches and a lighter and candles for that reason. In general we would have given it an A+ except for the bed."

  • another fabulous month in paradise

    "The Hideaway made my month in St. Thomas this year even more memorable. It's exactly as you see it, and what you can't see are the stars at night, the sunsets, the view from bed across the deck out to the Caribbean. And the quiet, the quiet nights (versus in town at Red Hook!). Just above Secret Harbour, good for a walk down and a swim every afternoon. Jan is a gracious hostess and will help in any way she can if you have any problems or questions. Or join her, she has a busy life, always up to something exciting, and enjoys company. She is always available of you need something. Property location is ideal, near Red Hook and the ferries to St. John and the BVI, restaurants and etc. Hated to leave. Already planning the next escape. I recommend a car on St. Thomas but actually you could do without at the Hideaway. Red Hook and Secret Harbour are close enough to be walkable even given the hills and the road widths. Just be prepared to step off into the bushes! Try the night kayaking at Marriott Frenchman's Cove (you would need a car) or new this year, at St. John Cruz Bay. Fish Tails in Red Hook always good too. Thanks again, Jan!"

  • Couldn't ask for anything more!

    "Not only is Pete great but his condo is FANTASTIC! It is wonderfully decorated, fully renovated, clean, absolutely beautiful and relaxing. Step off the back deck and you are on the beach, directly in front of the pool. He has EVERYTHING you could imagine, from gourmet cooking utensils/pots/spices to beach toys. I have no intention of staying anywhere else when I am in STT. My aunt was staying at a separate condo at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina, she basically stated she would be renting from Pete from now on. Thank you, Pete, for helping to make my short, yet eventful vacay a great one! Also, the manager, Kathleen, is the sweetest person."

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.
