  • Great condo for St. Thomas getaway

    "My husband visited St. Thomas for Spring Break, and really enjoyed our stay at the Nightwind. Pros: -Located in very nice condomenium with nice amenities (beach within walking distance, next to pool and bar & grill) -Owners came and visited our first night to make sure we were settled and answer any questions -Condo fully stocked with kitchen supplies for up to 4 people. There is also a collection of dry goods/alcohol/toiletries left over from previous guests. Be sure to take an inventory before you go and purchase anything. -Only a 5 minute drive to Red Hook (bars and restaurants) -Condo clean upon arrival (towels smelled fresh) -Condo also had beach towels, chairs, and snorkel equipment in the storage nook next to the TV -Great view and ocean breeze from patio (we fell asleep on the patio chairs one afternoon) Cons: -None! The condo came with everything we needed for our vacation, and we would love to return."

  • Sapphire Condo Rental

    "The unit was nice and the location being near the Ferry in Red Hook for day trips to St Johns Island was great. Great views. Nice water. Unit owner was pleasant and easy to work with. On the down side, we had to send a reminder to get our mid-week unit cleaning service and the balcony which was very nice in general had a wood lattice above the door full of mold growth and the above unit sweep a bunch on sand down on our balcony."

  • Love this place!

    "Right on the beach and such a nice peaceful spot. We loved this room and the fact that we could walk right out on the beach to swim or just sit on the back patio and watch the day go by. This was our first time to visit St Thomas and we will definitely stay here again. We shopped at nearby Food Center and the kitchen was stocked with what we needed. The bed was very comfortable. Freshwater pool just steps away."

  • Pool and Beauty

    "This place was amazing! It had it all: 1. A stones throw from Red Hook, Ferries to St. John and other locations, Safire Beach, restaurants, etc. 2. You have your own pool, patio, and grill. All of which are completely private. 3. Nice flowers and plants around patio and pool. 4. The unit has floor to ceiling windows for half of the walls letting in plenty of light and letting you see the beauty from your bed, living room, and kitchen. 5. Chris, the owner, is very helpful and can help guide you to the best of the island attractions and make your trip more enjoyable."

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.
