"Unfortunately we lost a day due to weather over Florida. We loved the house and the pool. The roads are a bit scary as is true for St. Thomas as a whole. Lots of birds. We saw an iguana in front of the house! We would definitely recommend this location!!"Guest: bb Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 16, 2014View listing
"A great place to spend a week or few days! Everything was as we expected it to be and the position is perfect. Loved having 3 restaurants within walking distance and especially liked the Lobster Grill at the far end of the beach at Bolongo Bay Resort. Enjoyed the half day sail to Turtle Cove on the catamaran too. Definitely recommend hiring a car as there are lots of other bays and beaches to explore. We went to Avis downtown and had no problem."Guest: Barb Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 3, 2014View listing
"The home was great, wrap around deck overlooking the Caribbean was fantastic. We were even able to see St. Croix and Vieques on a few of the days from the deck. You get privacy and convenience to Charlotte Amalie and Redhook. Karen was easy to work with and Joma was very helpful when needed. The home was everything we needed. We would recommend this home! I would recommend renting a car, we were happy we had one."Guest: Chris H. Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 25, 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
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.
