"The home was perfect! We enjoyed it immensely... it was clean, had a great views and completely equipped with everything we needed to make our stay an enjoyable one, from bottles of cruzan rum to spare eye contact solution (they cover every angle). Property manager met us at the airport and made us feel like VIP's every step of the way. We had many of our meals out on the deck which was great. Thank you very much for sharing your slice of paradise with us! Can't wait till next time!"Guest: Pesante Family Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 31, 2014View listing
"Beautiful property, steps to the beach, beautiful large balconies (3 of them), not crowded, wonderful twice a day maid service, nice beds, linens, robes, safe, perfect condo kitchen, 3 baths, I could go on and on. Just a wonderful place to stay for the most relaxing vacation in paradise. I Hope I'm lucky enough to go again soon. The owner was easy to work with and fair on pricing also. One more comment, get some groceries delivered and eat breakfast and lunch in the room. When going out or eating at the Ritz gets too expensive, order pizza delivery from Red Hook (Señor Pizza). Good pizza and salad and probably the best deal too."Guest: Jayne Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 30, 2014View listing
"This condo is the perfect place to unwind and experience the perfect relaxing vacation. First of all, I cannot say enough about Peter and Kim...they were so welcoming and helpful with directions and advice! They even dropped by before our arrival to turn on the AC for us! The condo itself was extremely clean and stocked with everything you'd need for the beach! (Snorkeling gear, beach towels, several coolers, chairs and even binoculars!) The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, pans, and everything you'd need for cooking or blending frozen drinks! The condo also came equipped with wifi, satellite TV, DVD player, books and games....basically everything you'd need to feel right at home! The unit comes equipped with two awesome AC units and a bed that is just heavenly!! We slept better than we have in years! As for the outside, there are two separate balconies for eating breakfast or waking to have coffee off your bedroom....both have AMAZING views! We always felt very safe at the location! It's the perfect spot as it's a five minute trip into Red Hook and has several really nice beaches within walking distance! We would recommend the beach at Secret Harbour which is right up the street! If you rent a car, which was a huge plus, then it's a short drive into town to take the car ferry to St. John (a must do) I know for a fact that if....I mean WHEN we return to St. Thomas, we will call Peter and Kim and stay here again! It was the perfect getaway!"Guest: Sheri Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 4, 2014View listing
"Emi, Thank you, I had a wonderful time. Your unit is beautiful. Family members that rented 3 other units were in awe over your unit, the size of the TV and the complete stove with an oven. We returned home with many great memories."Guest: Holly Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 26, 2014View listing
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.
