Recent East End reviews

  • We love this condo.

    "My friends and I have just finished our third extended stay at this condo. The unit is very clean, quiet and contains everything you need for a fabulous vacation including WiFi and cable TV. The condo itself is even better than the picture and has a million dollar view of the Caribbean and St. John. The pool and beach are a very short walk and are kept very clean. Beach chairs and cooler is furnished in condo for your use. The beach is great for swimming and snorkeling. Food is available on the beach at a open air cabana for breakfast, lunch and a variety of drinks. The Sapphire grill, a short walk up the hill, also serves lunch and dinner and has music many nights. The town of Red Hook is only a short taxi ride away and has an array of food, drinks and entertainment. Many grocery stores are a short ride away. We do not rent a car and have no trouble getting around. The $1.00 safari bus is available on the main road about every 15 minutes. With a little practice you can get almost everywhere on this affordable means of travel. This is an island of tourist so taxies are everywhere. Even though the taxi stand on site has been closed you can call one anytime of the night or day. Phone number for taxies available in condo. The rates are very reasonable. If you do rent a car ample parking is available on site. The resort is under renovation but this has no effect on your everyday activities and the end result will be worth it. AT&T has the only cell towers on the islands. All other companies must pay roaming charges which is very expensive. I bought a used AT&T Go phone for use on the island. The east end location of this condo is your gateway to St. John. A short ferry ride from Red Hook will take you to Cruz Bay and the beaches of St. John. It's like getting two islands for the price of one. The marina in front of unit has many boat tours available at a reasonable rate. We always take at least one boat tour on every visit. We have found the people are very friendly and see the same people come back every year. We feel extremely safe with the security at the entrance and security constantly walking the grounds. We love this condo and plan on visiting for many years to come."

  • Outstanding house

    "We came to st thomas for my son's wedding and could not have chosen a better house. Calypso realty was fantastic to work with, ensured that all of our needs were met. This was one of the best appointed houses I have ever rented, and we have rented many. It was spacious, each couple had their own space and their own air conditioner. The pool was outstanding, easily accessible for my 86 yr old mother. The kitchen was outstanding and meals were easy and there was plenty of room to work. There was more than ample seating around the pool and we found ourselves outside most of the time. For those that like adventure, the track down to the ocean offered a great workout. Having maid service midweek just added to our relaxation. Cannot wait to go back for a week of pure rest and relaxation, without the hectic preparations for a wedding"

  • Wonderful week in St. Thomas

    "Let me start by saying this property has a million dollar view..wow...it was breathtaking! Everything you could need for a wonderful vacation is provided. One of the best days we had was sailing to the BVI via the Daydreamer charter and this was all thanks to Joanie's recommendation. We hope to visit again soon!"

  • Great place to wake up to

    "My husband and I traveled staying in "Paradise" for a week with our little one in tow. The first morning we woke up to a beautiful sunrise and clear blue skies over the marina. The place was really quiet, and the neighbors were super friendly. The place was clean and comfortable. We made full use of the snorkel and beach chairs that our host so kindly left in the rental for use.The beach area was lots of fun with great activities or just to lounge. The location was great because it was just a stone throw from the ferries which travels to St. John, Tortorla. My husband jogged the beach and down the fill to the ferry doc several mornings. And if you every venture down to the Ferry docs there is a little eatery stand inside that sells the BEST I've ever tasted patties (there are two stands right next to each other the 1st is the absolute best in taste and service). There is so much to discover on the island and around the red hook location - one week just wasn't enough. Thanks Gary for your patience with me with all my questions - your answers were very helpful - I never got lost - not once LOL."

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.
