"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
"My boyfriend and I traveled to STT for our babymoon in March 2014 (5 nights). We stayed at the Morningstar Villa Efficiency Suite and LOVED every minute there. Perfect for a couple. It was clean, beautiful, comfortable and easy to locate and the Brownings were very helpful and made us feel right at home during our stay. The view is lovely. We rented a Jeep and found this to be a great way to get around and explore the island. Would love to come back. We hope to take a trip on Mr. Browning's boat next time we visit. Would highly recommend this place- better than we expected!"Guest: Emily C. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: June 20, 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
"My family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed here for 5 days and had the best time! The condo is oceanfront with a huge balcony and the view is AMAZING!!! There was plenty of room for the 4 of us and the condo was very nice and clean! My children spent most of their time swimming in the pool, which we had to ourselves 80 percent of the time! My husband and daughter rented snorkel gear next door and snorkeled all around the bay! I could sit on the balcony and watch them! The condo is in the perfect location! It's on the top floor and the view is gorgeous! The property is quiet, safe and relaxing! We ate at Iggies beach bar (located next door / 2 minute walk on the beach) and at Mims (located right next to the pool)! Iggies had a band several evenings during the week and the kids enjoyed dancing with everyone next to the beach. . We could also hear the band from our balcony, which was nice (you could not hear it inside, so it did not bother our sleeping kiddos)! They offer beach volleyball, bean bag toss and a few other games. We did not rent a car for the first 2 days and only needed one to get groceries and visit some of the other beaches on the island. Our vacation was fabulous and we cannot wait to visit again!"Guest: Carrie Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 15, 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.
