About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 2-8
As a direct guest of the owner (through this website), you will be provided the best rates and a private check-in that allows you to bypass the front-desk process. All linens are provided.
On site amenities include, Tennis, Spa, and the beautiful Elysian Pool and Hot Tub. The resort is just two miles from Red Hook, the center of St. Thomas's popular east end activity and ferry transports to the other nearby islands.
The Resort: Come and enjoy the exclusive and immaculately manicured Elysian Beach Resort where the aqua blue Caribbean water of Cowpet Bay will be ever present in your views from the living room, the bedrooms, or any one of the three private balconies of this exquisite condo.
The Elysian is located just 12.5 scenic miles from the Cyril E. King airport (STT) on the east end of St. Thomas where it rises from its secluded beach to offer a most magnificent setting tucked quietly between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club.
From the moment you enter the resort you will begin to relax as you discover that most all of your vacation needs can be satisfied just steps from the condo door, right on the premises.
If partaking of island rum is on your agenda, visit one of the three resort bars. Make sure to ask for the ever popular 'Pain-Killer' drink invented on the island of Jost Van Dyke - a short ferry ride from Red Hook :)
The Beach and the Elysian Pool and Hot Tub: Enjoy the beautifully secluded white sand beach, where, in the shade of the palm trees, you will find complimentary use of beach furniture and a sports concession stand that offers a variety of water toys such as paddle boats, single and double kayaks, windsurfers, float-mats, and snorkeling gear.
For a change of scenery, with reading material in hand, consider spending an afternoon sitting at the Elysian freshwater swimming pool; one of the most exquisitely designed and landscaped pools on the island, complete with rock grotto waterfall and hot tub.
Relaxing on the beach: Enjoy a quiet day on the beach while watch the iguanas sunbathing.
Start your day with a fresh cup of coffee on one of the three balconies and get started on that book you've been wanting to read! If coffee and a book is not your style, consider a game of tennis on a court surrounded by palm trees.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

Nancy's vacation rentals are located within the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach on the highly desirable East End of St. Thomas, USVI near the village of Red Hook between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club.
I now have multiple vacation rentals at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach, all of which have been upgraded with new kitchens, bathrooms, cabinetry, and air conditioning.
From Beaching, scuba diving, snorkeling, SNUBA, ecotours, sailing, yachting, powerboating, submarining, rafting, jetskiing, parasailing, kayaking, horseback riding, parasailing, duty free shopping, dining (an abundance of excellent restaurants on the island), drinking, fishing, golfing, and tennis ... to visiting Paradise Point, Coral World, the St. Thomas Skyride ... to sight seeing (guided or unguided tours) ... to getting married ... or just relaxing on the condo deck and enjoying the view of the Caribbean Sea.
There is a LOT to do on the islands. Although there are plenty of things to do right on the island of St Thomas USVI, the great thing about being on the East End of St Thomas is that you have the ability to easily get off St Thomas to explore St Johns and the British Virgin Islands! Having been to St Thomas many times, the following remain my favorite things to do. They are not to be missed!
Visit Trunk Bay Beach on St Johns to relax and/or snorkel. To get there, take the Red Hook ferry to St Johns and then grab a cab to Trunk Bay beach.
Take your rental jeep on the car barge (to the left of the ferry terminal) to explore the island of St. John's. Visit the remote beaches on the far side such as Lampshur Bay. Eat at a roadside restaurant.
Rent a powerboat w/Captain in Red Hook and head out to Jost Van Dyke. The captain will help you with the best method to clear British customs. Visit Soggy Dollar Bar and enjoy a Painkiller #5 in White Bay. While there, also visit Ivan's Stress Free Bar and play bartender. Then hop over to Great Harbor to visit world famous Foxy's for another Painkiller! If you have time, get your captain to take you to Little Harbour and enjoy a meal at Sidney's Peace and Love. Make a day of Jost Van Dyke.
Have a Banana Daiquiri at Mountain Top on St. Thomas or enjoy an Adult Flavored milkshake at Udder Delight at the St. Thomas Dairy.
Red Hook is the place to go if you are looking for an evening of fun. This is where you will find the island-style party vibe that captures the whole block. This area offers lots of variety and many options in the way of nightlife. If bar-hopping is your style, this is a stop you don’t want to miss!
Check out Duffy's Love Shack - located in Red Hook Plaza parking lot opposite the Ferry dock.
All beaches in the Virgin Islands are open to the public. Non-hotel guests can usually rent chairs and water sports equipment at beach resorts. There are a LOT of great beaches on St. Thomas.
Out of the 44 beaches on the island, I prefer the beaches that have decent snorkeling, with a bar that serves Painkillers, and iguanas sunbathing. The beach that is right in front of the vacation rental is Cowpet Bay Beach and is a favorite with frequent island travelers.
For your first vacation to the USVIs, I recommend that you limit your island hopping to St. Thomas, St. John, and Jost Van Dyke. It will be all you can do to see and enjoy these islands. After visiting the islands many times over the years, I still enjoy these islands the most.
You will need to visit Tortola to clear British customs in order to go to Jost Van Dyke. While you are in Tortola, it is worth having drinks and lunch at Pusser's Landing.
I HIGHLY recommend you book a boat through John at St Thomas Boat Rental. We, the owners, have rented with him multiple times while in St Thomas and had a fantastic time. John took eight of us wherever we wanted to go and gave us a history lesson along the way. He even picked us up right at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach. We just packed a cooler. He provided snorkel equipment on the boat.
St. Thomas Boat Rental offers you a private boat for the day or half day. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride while St. Thomas Boat Rental’s captain handles the rest. Enjoy the beauty of the Virgin Islands at your pace, on your schedule with St. Thomas Boat Rental.
Walk across the street from the Elysian Beach Resort and set sail aboard The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas' own catamaran, the Lady Lynsey, offering day snorkel sails and sunset sails.
Or, enjoy one of the many charters available at the American Yacht Harbor in the village of Red Hook on the East End of St. Thomas, where you can discover the beauty of the Caribbean Sea as you explore white-sand beaches and snorkel through live coral reefs or 'The Caves' of Norman Island.
There are several island-hopping party destinations that are worth the trip such as any of the many bars on White Bay on Jost Van Dyke; generally rated G - Mild-to-Wild drunken behavior.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: This Elysian Beach Resort condo on Cowpet Bay Beach is owned by two families who love St. Thomas. We hope to someday spend several months at a time on the island.
Why the Owner Chose East End, St Thomas, USVI:
After visiting many islands throughout the Caribbean, we settled on buying property at the Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach on St. Thomas because of the large variety of activities in the area. We choose to purchase on the East End of the island for easy access to the people/car ferry and other boating activities available in Red Hook.
