About Rick Lawrence

We were semi-retired professionals looking for our little slice of paradise. We found it here, we eat a leisurely breakfast most mornings on our deck overlooking the ocean. We are lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the waves. We have lived on island for over nine years now and still find it our slice of paradise.

Rick Lawrence purchased this condo in 2008

Why Rick Lawrence chose St. Thomas

We wanted oceanfront property that had easy access to the beach with nothing to restrict our tropical ocean view. The pool and a short green area and then down the stairs and you are on the beach. We are within walking distance to Iggie's, Mim's and the Lobster Grille. We enjoy going over and meeting friends at Iggie's and just walking home along the beach. Each morning I walk the beach to get my local island paper to enjoy with breakfast.

What makes this condo unique

We live on island year round with our vacation property located in the same complex as our own personal unit. We love the weather, the flowers, the hummingbirds, the bananaquits, the scenery, the proximity of the pool and beach. We still haven't done it all ! So much to see and do and things changing all the time.

Lovely stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

March, 2017. We just spend one week at Rick and Linda's apartment. We enjoyed every minute and was very please with the apartment, which was well equipped and clean. The view from the balcony, with a butifull view over the sea, was magnificent. Also the location is good, just a quarter drive from Charlotte Amalie to the west and a quarter drive away the wonderful beaches to the east. Rick and Linda did a great job introducing us to the apartment and the area. We hope to come back and can only recommend the place. Kind regards, Hanne and Jesper

Incredible rental option in St Thomas!

  • 5 of 5

In short, the studio was a perfect fit for us during our time in St. Thomas. The location is ideal with very good restaurants within walking distance. We spent a lot of time enjoying the wonderful view from the studio's balcony. We met Linda and Rick, who were more than accommodating when it came to answering our questions. Our daughter lives in St Thomas, and she, through the recommendations of others, suggested we try this property out! Surely glad that we did, and when we return for our next visit, we'll again rent this property! Thanks Linda and Rick for all your efforts in providing a clean and inviting studio!

Fantastic introduction to the USVI!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our week in Rick & Linda's condo - would definitely head back there the next time we're in town! Iggy's is a blast, with good bar food (get the peel and eat shrimp!), fun cocktails and music every night. There are 2 other great restaurants to choose from at the same spot - you can't go wrong. The pool's great, the hosts were very helpful in a super-nice laid back way, and we just walked the short distance across the beach to Bolongo Bay whenever we wanted an ATM, hammock, or jet ski ride ;-)

The place was spotless and for us as first-timers to St. Thomas it couldn't have been easier to get around from there and explore. This was a second honeymoon for us, and it was such a perfect experience!

My husband and I stayed for 12 nights . The location was central to everything we wanted . The people at the Villas , both guests and the management were so friendly . We sat on our deck watching the sun come up ,listening to the waves lap up on the shore . Our unit was perfect for the two of us . We want to bring our adult kids back next time , we got to see a 2 bedroom unit ,it was so nice , just want we want for our next trip to St Thomas .
