"The condo was in very good condition, right on the beach, on second floor, but only 6 steps up with a wonderful view of St John and it's only 5 minutes away from the town of Red Hook. The beach is good for swimming and great for snorkeling, saw many different types of fish, small squid and turtles eating in the sea grass just off shore."Guest: Vacation Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 22, 2014View listing
"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."Guest: Grandma Sue Date of Stay: December 2013 Review Submitted: January 10, 2014View listing
"We just got back and already miss the place. The condo was very clean, the bed was comfortable and had a perfect view. My 3 year old grandson first walked in the door and stated we have to go to the beach. He knew he was in paradise. Everyone was nice and helpfull. We met many people from all over and had a great time. Hopefully we will be back soon. Thank you for the use of your condo, it was just right."Guest: Mare Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 6, 2014View listing
"Paradise !! - the beach, the view, the location, the accommodations - everything was perfect! The condo was clean, nicely updated kitchen, huge and beautifully remolded bathroom. The King size bed was very comfortable - everything was super! Chairs and snorkel gear where generously provided by Hong! Many many thanks! Saw sea turtles, stingrays and Nemo too!! There is a small grill type restaurant on the beach which is convenient for lunch and drinks. Some disarray is visible as areas are cautioned taped off where a restaurant used to be as well as the dive shop. There was talk on the beach and evidence of work on getting the dive shop open soon. I certainly hope so. We spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool! We had plans on visiting St John; however, everything we needed was right there. Breathtaking views. Pictures just don't do justice. Loved to sit out on the patio every night to enjoy a rum drink while listening to the waves. Absolutely perfect. Morning sunrises were just beautiful. Its a great location. You will not be disappointed. We will be back !! I would highly recommend this condo to everyone and anyone I know.....and plan on doing just that. . Thank you Hong for sharing your Island home and making this a vacation full of memories!!"Guest: kim Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 25, 2014View listing
