"My husband and I have now stayed two times at this lovely condo. We felt right at home. Everything we could have needed was provided for our comfort needs. The view is fantastic and the residents are friendly and helpful.Steps away from the crystal pool and Sapphire Grill. Complete with beautiful weather...what more could one ask for?!"Guest: Deborah F.

"Having the condo as a home base to our stay was fantastic. The apt had everything we needed and then some. We were pleasantly surprised to find a few extras that really added to the comfort of our stay. Loved having such an equipped kitchen(saving $$ on meals), beach chairs, snorkel equipment, access to bbq on the grounds and a choice of 2 beautiful pools to jump in after a long day at the beach. We enjoyed an amazing view and breakfast every morning on the terrace. We can't wait to stay here again."Guest: Tami & Kenny Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 27, 2014View listing
"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!"Guest: Barbara C.

"Had a great stay in LeeAnn's condo this past week. We were a group of 6, 4 adults and 2 small children. The condo was just as advertised and looks like it does in the pictures. The upstairs bedroom was very nice with its private balcony and the downstairs sofa had a hideaway bed so plenty of room for all of us. The bottom floor also had a nice balcony with a table and chair. The onsite 2 level pool was nice and clean and the condo staff were friendly and always busy maintaining the property. At the time we were there the dive shop, lobby and extra parking lot was closed due to differences between dive shop owner and COA. This actually worked to our advantage because it kept the cruisers out and sapphire beach nice and quiet. I would highly recommend C308 and I hope to return some day again. Also LeeAnn, Caryl and Smitty were great with answering questions and helping us out."Guest: David B. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: February 25, 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.
