Your Piece of Paradise at Crystal Cove!

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This newly remodeled property commands unblocked views of Crystal Cove, St. John, and the British Virgin Islands. Your choices of how to spend your time are unlimited---bask in the tropical sun on the white, sandy beach, or sit in the shade of a sea grape tree with a warm breeze blowing over you while you read that book you've been saving, or hop in one of the local 'dollar taxis' and make the trip to Red Hook for shopping or lunch or dinner.

If you are a serious shopper, you are only 20 minutes from Havensight--a mecca for tax free jewelry and clothing shopping. Dozens and dozens of stores are waiting for you to come and negotiate your best price for well-known brands!! From there you can walk to the newly-completed Yacht Haven Grande--view the cruise ships as you dine or shop in this amazing oasis of style and great food.

When you come back to your condo, you can refresh yourself in the newly renovated bathrooms which include granite topped vanities and a glass block shower. The completely equipped kitchen allows you to demonstrate your own cooking skills on all new appliances (and new cabinets and granite counter tops) or just stow all the snacks you need to carry you over until you go to nearby restaurants.

The choices are all yours!!

Why Nancy and Bob Biroc chose East End

We fell in love with Crystal Cove because of its beautiful beach, its inspiring views of St John and BVI's and its great location to the marina which is a short walk away and its proximity to the ferry to all of the islands. We love to snorkel, scuba dive , windsurf and fish. Crystal Cove offers all of these activities.When we are not having fun enjoying the sun and surf, Crystal Cove has a quiet and relaxing calmness about which truly makes this place very special.

Hidden Gem. Very nice place to stay with 3 children 7-12 yr old.

  • 5 of 5

The beach is wonderful we went snorkeling 6-10 times a day right out front and it's top notch snorkeling. The beach is great and not crowded when we were there. The large unit was very nice and clean obviously the owners have their renters in mind as most things you might want or need are there.

I stayed at the property December 2015 for an all girls trip to celebrate my birthday. The property was well maintained and the owners made sure all of our needs were met. The keys were sent well in advance. We enjoyed being able to wake up to a wonderful view in the morning and walk right down to the beach. I had friends who slept on the murphy bed and sofa bed and there were no complaints. There were extra pillows and comforters/sheets. The property is very close to Red Hook where we drove a few minutes for dinner and nights out. Parking was never an issue. Inside the condo we had all the amenities we needed. We went grocery shopping at the beginning of the trip and was able to cook a few good meals. We also utilized the blender for frozen drinks. I would enjoy staying at this property again!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to stay on St. Thomas. We are a retired couple who have traveled extensively and lived abroad. We can say that this is a world class vacation rental. We were looking for a somewhat impromptu get away for our wedding anniversary. Our previous experience with the Virgin islands was a family camping vacation on St. John over 20 years ago. We have aged out of camping but still wanted something that would give us the opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the islands without the distractions of a resort or the remoteness of a mountain cottage. We rented unit C-14 for one week at the end of October and it met our expectations perfectly. The rental experience was completely hassle free and personable. No hidden charges or surprises. The condo unit is up to date and very well equipped. There is a breathtaking view across a saltwater lagoon to the beach with St John and Tortola visible across the water. A few steps to the beautiful beach with some of the best snorkeling anywhere. Beach chairs are provided and there is plenty of shade. There is also a beach bar/grill at one end of the beach but we never tried it. Convenient to Red Hook for ferry to St. John for an easy day trip. Red Hook also has a reasonable selection of restaurants though we preferred cooking for ourselves.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

I never write reviews, but wanted to share how wonderful our vacation was here, can't wait to come back! The condo itself was completely updated and immaculate. It was stocked with every necessity and luxury possible. There was plenty of cool sand toys and noodles for my 7 year old son, and all the scuba equipment for my teen girls! Perfect unit location, only a few steps from the beach!!!! The owner gave us her own little typed booklet, packed with restaurant suggestions, as well as places to shop, go on adventures, etc... This was huge for us because we didn't have to waste one minute of our time. We knew where to grab breakfast, dinner, fruit for the beach, the best ice cream, where all the great snorkel spots were to see turtles, stingrays, etc... She also explained in detail the best way to hop over to St John, we loved it so much, we went there twice. The beach, which was directly in front of condo, was amazing! Perfectly calm, soft sand, free beach chairs, not crowded, and everyone was super friendly. There was so much to do, we really enjoyed every minute here!!!

You won't reget staying here!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting the USVI, and having this condo made this a wonderful experience. The condo is equiped with food prep equipment all the way to beach equipment. Great views out front window, and even out back window you can see the hills. The condo was clean with lots of room, and even 2 full baths! Nancy sent an envelope containing alot of info about the area, not only for sightseeing, but also stores to buy food, taxi service, and directions to places.

Don't wait, book it...YOLO!!!

This was our first trip to the USVI, and now I wish we would of went sooner. Can't say enough about the owners Nancy & Bob, so helpful! They would email us back or return our calls within minutes. They even called on the 3rd day to see how things were going and if we needed anything. Had a great chat, felt like we knew them already. The Condo literally has everything you need for a great beach vaca. Just 2 adults in mid 30s traveling, no kids on this vaca but condo was equipped w/ kid friendly stuff. As a Nurse I felt this condo was very clean, and definitely roomy. We almost felt guilty we did not invite 2 more people to come along because there was more than enough space. Wished we would of packed much lighter since the stackable washer/dryer (which looked new) in unit was a PLUS! Kitchen had everything you need to cook with just like home. We made breakfast in every morning & drank lunch on the beach, then went out for dinner at night. Lunch is available right on the beach though, you will see people walking around to take orders for food/tropical drinks/beer from the Banana Cabana or Sapphire Grill. Usually takes like 15 min or so and they bring it right to you. Cooler in the unit to use on the beach which we packed with beer/snacks to take to beach daily. Condo has beautiful updated kitchen, bathrooms were very clean and nice for its purpose, furniture clean and comfy, large kitchen table w/6 chairs, king size bed mattress wasn't that hard to us. The exhaustion of vaca put us fast to sleep every night anyway. But who cares about the indoors when you have all that beauty outdoors! Best beach view that we have ever seen while lounging and sunbathing ocean side, and we've been to our fare share of beaches! Diane the beach attendant always pulls your chairs to the spot you want. We tipped her few bucks since we seen others doing it. Always tons of chairs there daily so no need to get out at the crack of dawn. Condo we feel had the best view of all the units seriously. Other units were turned and had views of just the buildings and 1/2 the beach. So seriously who wants to see that when you could have a panoramic view like this! The amount of steps to the beach compared to the closer ones was just a few! Don't even worry about paying more for closer ones, its just a waste. Pool is salt water but very clean, no one was hanging out there so nice and quiet. Tennis court nice, kept up as well. Always felt safe at the condo, security guard by gate at night too!
