  • Felt At Home

    "My husband and I visited St Thomas for the first time to celebrate his 40th. The unit was ideally located to visit the most popular beaches on the island and was a short drive to St John Ferry to see the national park. The security on the premises was much appreciated since they handled a little situation between us and another tourist who hit our parked car. They took very good care of us. I appreciated very much the unit's art, location, comfort and cleanliness. It was so very quiet and serene. We ate at Panga's which is just down a few set of stairs and enjoyed the views. Also Redhook spots were so easily accessible. Perhaps we can return again."

  • Fantastic getaway

    "My husband and I honeymooned at Sea Glass at Sapphire Beach during mid-September, and it was a beautiful experience. We rented snorkel gear from the resort's dive shop for the entire week and had so much fun just walking out the door each morning to swim with the fish, rays, and (our favorite) sea turtles! I loved being so close to the water, and it was incredibly relaxing sitting on the spacious porch to read a good book. I often caught myself simply staring off into the water or across the way to beautiful St. John. September is technically the "off season," and I was a little concerned about the weather, but we had no issues at all. It rained VERY briefly for about 5-10 minutes each day, which is pretty standard beach weather. Otherwise, it was all sunny skies. The island was pretty quiet, which suited us just fine. We had a blast going into Red Hook for dinner (or to catch a couple football games). Everyone was extremely friendly. We took the Safari taxis around ($1 fare pp) as much as possible, but they only run during daylight hours. Otherwise, normal taxis are extremely accessible. Most of our time was spent around the condo and resort area relaxing, but we took a couple of excursions. Highly recommend the Bad Kitty day cruise to see quite a few spots around the islands and see some beaches it would be difficult to get to otherwise. We finally went to St. John our last day, and I wish we had gone sooner! We had SO much fun renting a Jeep and cruising around the exotic island. The condo was very comfortable and had everything we could have needed. We picked up some supplies at the Kmart and had snacks, coffee, and a couple meals around the place. Highly recommend Sea Glass at Sapphire! Already dreaming of going back one day."

  • Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!!!

    "This villa is clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a perfect vacation; it's private, quiet, great beds, well stocked kitchen, private pool, beach towels and chairs and the best view you will find from both the inside and outside. It is close to Red Hook and everything you may want to see and/or do. The outdoor area with the deck, pool, bar and grill are perfect for having relaxing days. We spent several days just lounging around on the deck; grilling, swimming and watching the boats go by. We had 2 couples and my brother has stage 4 lung cancer and is on oxygen. Although there were a few stairs getting down to the villa, he didn't really have trouble and was able to enjoy the deck and outdoor space. There were plenty of outdoor chairs and loungers to use, along with an outdoor dining set. The owners were quick to respond to our inquiries and were extremely helpful. Due to weather delays, our flight arrived about 10:30 pm instead of 2:00 pm. Although good directions were provided, given the late hour and long day we had, we had trouble finding the villa and had to call the owners for help. Although it was after midnight and I hated to call them that late, they answered the phone quickly and happily helped us. I can't imagine finding a better place on the island to spend your vacation. It was perfect!!"

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.
