Guestbook comments from the owner

St. Thomas wedding

Best place to stay on St. Thomas



This condo was even better than we expected. It was very clean and spacious. The location is excellent as it close to downtown Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook for a variety of restaurants. It has a well stocked kitchen for eating in as well. There were plenty of bath towels and beach towels and the beds were comfortable. It is right on the beach with fantastic views of the ocean and pool. The beach is not crowded and has two restaurants. You can book catamaran tours that leave right from the beach. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner Earl. He even called us the first day to make sure we made it there OK. We will definately return. We have rented other condos on St. Thomas from other owners in the past and have been disappointed. Not here! Thanks Earl.

Looking for paradise? Here it is....

  • 5 of 5

For our family's first trip to St Thomas, we struck gold with this condo. When we booked the time, we received a package in the mail from Mr. Thomas that provided directions on getting there from the airport, where the closest store was, phone numbers for taxis, and general information about the area that proved to be extremely helpful when we arrived. The condo itself was in immaculate shape, with a view from the balcony that was postcard perfect. Everything we needed such as pots and pans were provided, as well as beach towels and even a few folding chairs for us to bring to the beach.

We chose to rent a car, which if you're like us and want to explore the islands, I do recommend. But be forewarned, driving on the left does take some getting use to, as does the pace in which some folks navigate the incredibly hilly and winding roads, but it was better than having to wait for taxis.

The people of St Thomas were extremely warm and friendly, with a quick smile and a "Good Morning, or Good Afternoon greeting.

The condo's proximity to the Bolongo Beach Resort proved to be very convenient. We took advantage of the beach bar at Iggy's on more than one occasion. I highly suggest going on Wednesday, when they offer an all you can eat buffet and some fantastic albeit unusual live entertainment.

We spent alot of our time snorkeling right off the beach in front of the condo, where we were fortunate enough to swim with some sea turtles. However, if swimming in the ocean is a little daunting, the condo does offer a lovely pool area, with umbrellas and deck chairs that allows you to catch all the rays you can, and cool off periodically when needed.

All too soon, our time was done and we had to come home. But we left with great memories, a nice tan, and plans to one day return to St Thomas, and this condo.

Spectacular views, cozy

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our 6 and 3 year old girls and I stayed at Earl's condo for 8 nights. The views of Bolongo bay are spectacular from the 2nd floor, ocean facing unit. Mims restaurant is just below, and Iggies is 100 yards down the beach. Our girls spent many hours in the condo's pool and were entranced by the many Iguanas.

Bolongo bay itself is pretty but not the best for swimming, as it's rocky and has a lot of sea urchins. Nearby Abi beach is great for swimming and lounging (and has a bar with food), and Secret Harbor beach, a bit East, has the best snorkling in the area.

The condo had some basics on hand and Food Center is a short drive east, toward Red Hook. Would stay again if we revisit St. Thomas.

Owner's Response: Hi Brian, thanks for taking the time to post your reflections on visiting with us in St.Thomas. It's such a pleasure to hear from my guests about how much they enjoyed their visit with us. Our beach has a lot to offer beach lovers with varying interests. Obviously, just relaxing in such a beautiful tropical beach setting is satisfying on its own. Nevertheless, the best area for swimming is located about 500 feet down the beach adjacent to the Resort. Many of my guests report on the magnificent snorkeling right outside our door. Some comments from a previous guest: "We loved the wild life that lived in Bolongo Bay- 3-4 sea turtles, beautiful manaray, squid and loads of colorful fish. The sea grass and giant bolders provide a habitat that out weighed any of the other beaches we visited on either island. The beach had a moderate number of people, but never to crowded. There are 3 delicious restraurants along the beach. When you eat at Mim's plan to eat around sunset, it is absolutely breath taking." Thanks again Brian, hope to have you back soon for another visit. Earl

Great first trip to St. Thomas!

  • 5 of 5

This was a birthday getaway for myself and a friend, and we had an absolute blast! Mr. Thomas equipped us well with a great place to stay and suggestions of things to do. The view from the condo balcony is fabulous and so relaxing. We felt very comfortable during our stay. We enjoyed great food at 3 restaraunts right on the beach. We took a ferry to St. John, did a little shopping, and also enjoyed a day trip to Megan's Bay. We so appreciated Mr. Thomas' hospitality. I definitely want to return to St. Thomas, and take my husband and would stay in this condo again. Thank you again for making this a trip to remember!

Home away from home. Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Steps from the pool and 2 mins from both the famous Mims and Iggies beach bar/restaurant. Lobster grill is 5 min walk down the beach.

This beautiful condo is over looking the ocean. We love to cook and eat on the balcony. You will find everything is here for you.

The owner Earl is a wonderful and caring person. He will send links to check out. These have information on everything on the Island and if you still have questions he is only a phone call away.

Don't forget to take a water taxi to Water Island. I had the best fish tacos there. The beach is beautiful and bring a cooler along or buy food and drink there.

So much to do or not, it's up to you.

The best ever

  • 5 of 5

I cannot compliment Mr. Thomas enough. I had a scheduling problem with his condo due to a serious family illness. Mr. Thomas was willing to work through the problem to my satisfaction. All during the process of booking and payment he has been such a joy to work with. I highly recommend Mr. Thomas, and his St Thomas condo. I will be staying there in the fall.
