"We enjoyed are stay. After driving all over the island and experiencing some of the roads to other locations, I realized that this location is perfect. Our niece lives on the island and gave us the grand tour. Thanks Aaron for the clean and quiet condo!!"Guest: Steve Harrison Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 18, 2014View listing
"I just returned from a week at Andrew's condo with my girlfriend and have to say, wow.. this is easily one of the most memorable places I've ever been! First off, the location is amazing. The property is walking distance to three good restaurants, one of which (Mim's) was recommended to me by several locals as the best seafood on the island. Iggy's has live music nightly, great atmosphere, and just a great overall vibe.. Next door, the Bolongo Bay Resort has a full suite of watersport rentals, and tons to do: a sunset-cruise sailboat charter, hobie-cat rentals, full-service PADI dive shop, snorkel rentals, etc--all within walking distance. We snorkeled right off the beach in Bolongo Bay almost every day, and really enjoyed this area.. nearby is the town of Red Hook where we took the ferry to St John, and found some of the prettiest beaches I've ever seen. The condo itself is very well appointed, comfortable, and very clean. The kitchen has all amenities, and we felt right at home. Andrew keeps this property up-to-date, and all the conveniences make you feel comfortable right away. The balcony and view of the beach/bay is probably my favorite feature, and where we found ourselves spending most of our time.. My girlfriend could not get over listening to the waves that crash on the beach literally a stones throw away, and we both enjoyed the constant tradewinds.. the warm breeze off the ocean that you really miss when you get back stateside - and one of the many things that makes this island getaway truly memorable!"Guest: Wilson Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 5, 2014View listing
"This condo is amazing for the price! We just arrived a day ago and it has been nothing but fabulous! The food at iggies was great, sitting by the ocean at night listening music what a vacation! But a rental car is a must we got ours for $56 a day beats the $80 we spent yesterday just to get here and go to the grocery store! Food is expensive at the grocery store as well so I would say eat at home and eat out It would probably come out the same seeing you won't eat a big bulk of food if your here for a week. Cindy was helpful providing all the information to make a trip amazing and took time to call and give me all the info when booking the rental!The view is amazing it's pretty quiet and we are really enjoying it! We will most definitely will return!!!"Guest: Shawna S. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 18, 2014View listing
"This condo was clean and well appointed and it is located on the 3rd level, just 30 feet above the crashing surf. The view over Bolongo Bay and resort was breathtaking. There are three restaurants within short walking distance and the food/drinks were outstanding. Music every night (plays until 10pm) and seen 6 weddings during our 9 days there. Miss Virgin Islands Gabby was our waitress one morning when we ate breakfast out at Lobster Grill (one of the 3 restuarants). The owner's were extremely friendly and answered any questions that came up quickly. This was our 5th stay on the island (we like to try different ones/areas) and this was our 1st at Nikki & Ed’s villa. Location was outstanding. We love this side of the island (easiest driving) and this villa was located half way to Red Hook or half way back to Havensight shopping area (perfect for what we wanted to do). With having 4 adults in this unit, we had no problems moving about, plenty of space except cooking, smaller kitchen made for 2 people only (that being the men). Plenty of towels, beach items, supplies and plenty of hot water. Drinks each morning and night out on the large balcony with plenty of seating. Birds visited us daily including humming birds. Beds very comfy with large closets and plenty of dresser space. Our last night we made it up to the hilltop pool to watch the amazing sunset with a cruise ship leaving, simply gorgeous. We also left our patio door open all night to hear the waves crashing in, amazing sound to hear all night long. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone and everyone including ourselves again."Guest: Renee E. Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 27, 2014View listing
South Side Travel Tips
The Advantages of Staying at South Side St. Thomas Vacation Rentals
St. Thomas is a beautiful island in the Caribbean which is particularly popular as a cruise ship port destination. The capital of St. Thomas and also the U.S. Virgin Islands is Charlotte Amalie; it is well known for its unrivalled shopping, particularly for jewelry and precious stones.
St. Thomas has some of the most beautiful white sand beaches around its shores and the calm clear waters at Magens Bay are considered some of the best in the world for scuba diving.
Renting a vacation home at South Side St. Thomas often appeals to those who are enjoying a family vacation. With a relaxed lifestyle, it can be easier for those with children to stay independently rather than in a hotel. Vacation rentals have as many bedrooms and bathrooms as you require, making it easy for everyone to enjoy their own private space.
Vacation homes often have their own private swimming pool, sun terrace and gardens which are ideal for sitting out and enjoying breakfast before heading for the beach. An afternoon siesta for little ones is a great idea and much easier in a vacation rental home than in a resort.
Those looking for a romantic vacation or quiet honeymoon will also enjoy the privacy that a private villa affords. Comfortable, well located and fully equipped, vacation rentals are often the best way to enjoy your stay on St Thomas.
Things to do Around South Side St. Thomas Resort Rentals
Although most people think shopping in Charlotte Amalie or spending time on the beach are all that St. Thomas has to offer, there are a host of things to do for those who like to combine a little adventure with their travels.
There are beautiful panoramas from Drake’s Seat, Blackbeard’s Castle, the Tramway and other beauty spots around St Thomas. Charlotte Amalie has some interesting Colonial architecture, several museums and a large aquarium. The Seven Arches historic home is a pleasant attraction on Government Hill which incidentally you can climb up. The steps are known as 99 steps but if you count, you will find there are actually 103!
Getting to the Beautiful South Side St. Thomas Villas
The main airport serving St. Thomas is the Cyril E. King Airport to the west of Charlotte Amalie. It is very easy to get a taxi from the airport to your South Side vacation rental.
Direct flights are available from New York City and take three hours and 45 minutes while Miami has a shorter flight of just two hours and 30 minutes. Connecting flights via San Juan, Puerto Rico are available but they are generally more expensive.
American Airlines, Delta, Cape Air, United and Continental Airlines all fly direct to the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Places to Visit Around St Thomas
A day in the busy capital city, Charlotte Amalie, is a must during your vacation. The red-roofed, whitewashed houses make a charming sight. As well as excellent shopping, the town has many historic sights. Fort Christian is an interesting 17th-century building which was constructed by the Danes. Indeed much of the island’s cultural past is reflected in its architecture with Spanish patios, Dutch-style doors, Danish red-tile roofs and French wrought iron grills.
A pleasant escape from the busy resorts on St. Thomas is available just a ferry-ride away on St. John which is a far more laid-back and uncommercial island. Take a taxi tour around the island or relax on Trunk Bay Beach.
Honeymoon Beach is a palm-shaded area offering excellent snorkeling, swimming, waterskiing and other beach activities. Take the ferry from Crown Bay Marina across to Water Island and enjoy a perfect day on the beach.
