  • priced perfectly

    "perfect location, huge patio us only, sooooo close to the beach and snorkel! plenty of room for our 2 adults and 3 kids. True 2 bedrooms unlike other condos. Yes, interior/electronics are dated, but, we didn't expect high end resort amenities anyway. And it was priced as so. How much time do you stay in a room on a beach vacation? we just used it to sleep and cook and shower. Internet was slpotchy, however, AT&T smart phone service was great."

  • AMAZING CONDO IN ST THOMAS!

    "This condo was the perfect place for us to stay at during our first trip to the US Virgin Islands. We arrived to a spotless condo with all of the amenities that you'll need for a relaxing vacation, including kitchen supplies/appliances, free Wifi, and the best part, a hammock on the porch! The condo is located on Sapphire Beach, which offers some of the best snorkeling on the island. It was located very close to Red Hook (~3 minute drive) where you can find plenty of restaurants and have easy access to the ferry to St. John. We definitely recommend staying at this condo, and are looking forward to our next stay!"

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.
