  • 3 Generation Christmas Present

    "We stayed at this property over the week of New Year's as our family Christmas present and it was perfect! My oldest daughter and her two sons took up residence in the loft, my husband and I slept in the master bedroom, and our other daughter had the other bedroom on the main floor. The view from the living room and patio was wonderful as you looked to the water and several islands. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was very helpful and there were an adequate number of beach towels, a cooler, beach toys, etc for picnics at the beaches. The only thing we wished we had known earlier in the week was that the yacht club next door had a restaurant and bar open to anyone. The location was good for us as we generally don't like to be in crowded, overly commercialized areas, this end of the island is quieter but still very close to Red Hook with the ferry service to St. John, and Coki beach, along with several other pretty beaches with good snorkeling. Should we has an opportunity to return to St. Thomas, we will definitely stay at this property."

  • 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!"

  • Amazing property, amazing views!!!

    "My husband and I rented this villa while we were in St. Thomas for our destination wedding. We thought this would be a nice getaway for both of our families (who had never met each other before the trip) to get to know each other in a relaxed setting. The photos online looked amazing, but in person, the property was simply beautiful. From the start, the owner, Joanne, was very responsive and flexible. Her property manager gave us detailed information before we arrived and one of her staff met us when we landed and guided us to the house (super helpful!!). The location was perfect for us, 5 minutes from Red Hook (shops, restaurants and grocery store) and 5 minutes from Lindquist Beach where we had our wedding ceremony. The villa was spotless and a fruit basket and bottle of rum awaited us in the kitchen which was well-equipped; this was a relief because we cooked most of our meals. Joanne also allowed us to have a small meet-and-greet at the villa and all of our guests loved the home and wished they could have stayed there with us. The large outdoor patio, grill, stocked bar, and indoor/outdoor music system were perfect for hosting our gathering. Our families liked that the home was big enough that they could hang out wherever they wanted but the common areas felt homey enough for when we spent time together. Watching the sunset down at the jetty in the evenings was relaxing and we enjoyed the gardens as well. We tried a little snorkeling but there weren't enough goggles and the snorkels leaked water (maybe an upgrade is in order?). The only downside to our visit was that the infinity feature on the pool wasn't working. We were told that someone would come by during our stay to fix it but that didn't happen. The water level also ran low but the landscaper added water when he visited. We got to chatting with him and learned that the Bay Rum leaf (which is grown on the property), when broken, helps to ward off mosquitoes (great for those who don't like spraying on repellent)!! Regardless, we enjoyed the pool for several hours each day. All in all, we had an amazing time and we were definitely more relaxed on our wedding day than if we had stayed at a resort. I would do it all over again, without hesitation. Thank you, Joanne (and staff) for making our first trip to St. Thomas such an enjoyable experience!"

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.
