Watch stingrays jump out of the water or iguanas sunning on the rocks below the private balcony spanning the water-side of the condo and accessible from the living/dining room and master bedroom. The sunrise is magnificent from the balcony and a great place for a slow and relaxing breakfast.
The swaying palm trees, the lush local flora and sail boats floating in the bay help you to take that deep breath and 'relax'. The condo is part of the Watergate Villas East condo association and the two completely separate bedroom/bath combinations is perfect for two couples or a family to share.
Bolongo Bay has a wonderful blend of tranquility and action with a relaxed ambience perfect for vacations, holidays and weddings. Three beachfront restaurants are a short walk from the condo, including the famous Iggie's. The Bolongo Bay Beach Resort is just a short walk down the beach and has all the water activities and toys for rent that you could possibly want -- sailing, jet skiing, kayaking, parasailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, etc.
Or just enjoy the shared pools of the three sister condo associations available to our guests--Watergate Villas' is beside the Caribbean Sea and is a short walk from the condo, Sea Cliff Villas' overlooks the Caribbean Sea to the east for a wonderful view of the sunset and the cruise ships leaving Charlotte Amalie, and Regatta Point's is at the very top of the hill for lots of sunshine and tropical views.
The condo is furnished with wicker and rattan furniture and features a fully-equipped kitchen and all the amenities you may need for your vacation. Fully air-conditioned if you wish, or feel like a true resident of the Tropics by letting the Caribbean sea breeze from the soft tradewinds blowing direct from Portugal caress you each day and lull you to sleep each night.
With the added airline costs for bags, pack less and use our in-condo washer and dryer. If you want suggestions, we have a condo guestbook providing instructions for all condo amenities as well as favorite restaurants, beaches, snorkeling, scenic, picture-perfect views of Paradise, etc.
We love our Condo and sharing it with our family and friends. We hope you enjoy our Caribbean Paradise as much as we do.

About Nikki Graham
We live in South Point, OH, which is the southern-most point of Ohio on the Ohio River across from West Virginia and Kentucky. In our spare time, we have designed and built six homes. After we bought our condo, Ed served on the condo association board because we wanted the opportunity to help the association improve the property and ensure the quality of our new vacation home. The condo association property is very tropical and beautiful and the infrastructure is outstanding and well-maintained. Because we want to make sure your vacation is the best ever, we are available by e-mail or cell phone anytime to answer any question.
Nikki Graham purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Nikki Graham chose Estate Bolongo
In 1998, while on a cruise, we discovered and fell in love with snorkeling and Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas. The beautiful colors of the waters, the white buildings and red roofs and of course, the beautiful fish fulfilled the dream of Paradise. We enjoyed several more cruises through the years, but wanted to spend longer on the island. So in 2002, we decided to spend a week on St. Thomas. That is when we found Bolongo Bay with not only condos right on the water, but restaurants, pools and a beach within walking distance. We found our condo in Paradise in 2003 and now we can just walk down to snorkel our bay.
What makes this Condo unique
From our balcony, we can watch the sunrise, weddings on the beach, sailboats, catamarans, jet skis and hobie cats plying the beautiful blue waters, cruise ships leaving at night like a small city with all the lights on, falling stars, stingrays jumping out of the water, flying fish skimming the bay, pelicans soaring past and diving into the water, hummingbirds & sugarbirds & banana quits gorging on nectar, palm trees swaying in the breeze and because of that breeze we are never bothered by insects. Bolongo Bay is situated half-way between Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook so we have a multitude of choices for shopping and restaurants.

The place was as described and very clean and spacious! Ed and Nikki were very accommodating. Would highly recommend and stay again.
We appreciate this guest who had booked with us prior to the Hurricanes Irma and Maria destroying our island. She decided to not cancel and give our island a chance to recover. We are so happy that we are again able to offer our Paradise Home to others. Thank you.
We absolutely loved our stay at paradise found. The owners are VERY responsive to questions and full of helpful tips. Our entire family (two early 20'ies daughters) fell in love with Bolongo bay - Iggy's was fun (try the rum punch during happy hour). Having the snorkel gear, beach mats, and beach chairs saved us a lot of money. We stopped by the grocery store ( Pueblos) and grabbed stuff for breakfast and lunch so we had more time on the beaches. the only thing I would recommend would be water shoes if you want to swim in bolongo bay as parts of the beach can be a little rocky till you get out about 10 feet. The views were fantastic from the balcony. Absolutely perfect!
We really appreciate the information provided above by these guests. At one time there were lots of water shoes in the storage box on our balcony. We have not been on island in several months, so it may be that all those shoes have disappeared -- through wear and tear or lost on the beach, etc. We have found in our time on the island, the sand comes and goes and sometimes the rocks are more exposed than others.
We loved our stay at this condo. The view is amazing! I highly recommend it. They have plenty of beach towels, a couple beach chairs and even snorkeling gear.
Beach is Not kid friendly
The condo itself was as described. The beach towels and beach chairs were great and we appreciated having those. The beach unfortunately was so bad that we had to pay to relocate to another condo at Sapphire Beach. If we had known that you couldn't access the beach water due to all the rocks we would have never picked this condo. We asked for a refund due to this inaccurate description and were told no.
We are very disappointed with this rating. The renter chose Instant Booking without any questions or feedback and advised they were 4 adults and one child looking for fun activities. At no point did she request information or ask any questions before or after we provided our fourteen-page Welcome Letter. We have reviewed our condo listing and our Welcome Letter and there is absolutely nothing that alleges that Bolongo Bay Beach is “kid-friendly”. In fact, we mostly advertise and discuss the snorkeling, the turtles and other sealife of the bay. We have had many families with children stay who have left great reviews. And the nearby resort has children at the same beach all the time. We have reviewed all conversations and text messages from these renters and there was never a mention about a problem with the beach. They just sent a message that the condo wasn’t what they were expecting, that they were leaving and said “if possible, refund the nights we are not using.” We advised our policy is stated clearly in the Rental Agreement that there is no refund for shortened stays.
It was indeed paradise found. The unit had everything we could have asked for. The unit was nice and clean. We would be happy to stay there again.
Tropical waterfront condo was perfect for my stay. I loved the fact that the condo is an end unit and on the third floor of the building. The breeze coming off of the beach was comforting, relaxing and was a lullaby every night! The condo itself is spacious enough for 2 or 4 people. It was clean, and all amenities listed were available and working. The washing machine and dryer were an added bonus for me; clean clothes for the return trip home. :)
Overall, I enjoyed my stay and will stay here again if available.
20 Min. from Airport. Between Charlotte Amalie & Red Hook. Convenient to Coki and Sapphire Beaches. Other Activities: Boating, kayaking, shopping, zip lining.
