Recent East End reviews

  • priced perfectly

    "perfect location, huge patio us only, sooooo close to the beach and snorkel! plenty of room for our 2 adults and 3 kids. True 2 bedrooms unlike other condos. Yes, interior/electronics are dated, but, we didn't expect high end resort amenities anyway. And it was priced as so. How much time do you stay in a room on a beach vacation? we just used it to sleep and cook and shower. Internet was slpotchy, however, AT&T smart phone service was great."

  • Best Vacation Ever!

    "This was probably the best vacation my family and I have ever experienced. The view from the condo was absolutely amazing and I couldn't have asked for better. The location to the beach was also great. Right next to the door to the condo was a set of steps taking you right down onto the white sandy beach, which was so convenient. All of the little touches in the condo is what really set this property apart. Not only were beach towels provided, but also water toys, sunscreen, spices, plus many other things (too many to mention). We really enjoyed the private beach which was never crowded and my kids really enjoyed the freeform pool with the cave/waterfall. This condo and location far exceeded our expectations. Thanks Bill!"

  • Beautiful family vacation

    "This was our first time to St.Thomas. The location was perfect. My husband and 2 kids ( 4 and 11) had a great time. The view in the morning is amazing while enjoying your coffee! We took a boat trip to British Virgin Islands to snorkel and see Virgin Gorda (totally worth the money). We ended up having such a great time so we booked an all day sailboat trip to St. Johns to snorkel some more. The boat trips pick you up right outside the condo. The beach at the condo is white sand and crystal blue water. We went on this vacation with another family that stayed next door (also owned by Phil and Angela). Our patios were connected by balcony door ( that we just left open ). It was such a bonus to be able to be able to visit with each other, eat breakfast on the patio together, but also still have our own place. We rented a car in St. Thomas and drove around the island, dinners, grocery, etc. We put our car on the ferry and took it to St. Johns for the day to explore that island and all the wonderful secluded beaches it has to offer. ( FYI There is only 1 rental car company that lets you take your car on the car ferry) We had professional family pictures taken on the beach right outside the condo- it was a beautiful location. My kids loved the 2 level pool at the condo with a view right into sapphire beach. Special thanks to Phil and Angela- their place was very nice and clean and they have thought of everything! Beach chairs, coolers, towels and all the kitchen appliances you would need. This was an awesome family vacation."

  • Beautiful view, comfortable home

    "There were six of us, 2 seniors, 2 40's and 7 and 5 year old boys. This home had very few steps, which is saying something since it is on a hill. It is very quiet and has a wonderful breeze all the time. The kitchen is very complete. The owners provide beach chairs, towels and snorkel gear. It is convenient to Red Hook Restaurants and several beaches on the east end."

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.

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.
