This condo is a perfect home base in St. Thomas & to St. John and surrounding islands. Within ten minutes by taxi or rental car are grocery stores, K-Mart, duty-free shopping in Charlotte Amalie, Saint John ferry in Red Hook, championship golf course, Magen's Bay, and the airport. St John is a must see and is only a short ferry ride via car or person ferry from Red Hook (a nice day is packing the cooler, beach towels and portable chairs provided in the condo and taking your rental car to St. John to explore & snorkel all the beaches).

An added benefit for St. Thomas is that No Passport is Required for US Citizens to the US Virgin Islands!!! All you need is a US birth certificate.

This is WHERE YOU WANT TO BE - our solid concrete construction and protected Southside location were spared more than any other location. This could be your BEST vacation yet to support our island, noting that it's possible that cable TV, phone and internet may not be restored for your visit this winter, but there are hot spots around and AT&T phones work well in St. Thomas for you to tether. We have secured a MI-FI device available for internet. We are pushing and continuously working on options for this and have already adjusted our rates based on this missing amenity.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! We had a great time on our first trip to St. Thomas and hope to return soon! We loved everything. Very happy with our pick of places. Some cool things we did: day trip to St. John (took the car ferry, snorkeling, at Leinster Bay was awesome (Waterlemon Cay)! Beaches can be crowded on Sundays though. Swimming with turtles just off of Bolongo, Parasailing (very very cool), went to Magens Bay on a day with no cruise ships; went to Coki (nice snorkel; crowded though), and Sapphire. Our favorite places to eat were Mim’s, Iggies, Agave Terrace (fresh seafood) and Amigos (Red Hook). If you’re looking for a gym, try the Jackson Complex at Antille’s school – very friendly, A/C and lots of equipment. We found the best grocery prices at K-mart and Plaza Extra. Overall, we had a great time, beautiful weather and a much needed getaway from the everyday. Can’t wait to come back and best wishes to everyone!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented both the two and three bedroom condos from Scott and Leah Browning. The condos were as advertised and more. The condos have modern amenities such as flat screen televisions and wi-fi. Both necessities when entertaining a 7 year old. The Brownings provided leisure items like floats, snorkeling gear and pool toys. We have had to rent these items at other locations we have stayed. From the initial contact through the end of our stay, Scott and Leah could not have been more helpful. They guided us throughout the process of booking and made everything so simple. We even booked Captain Scott's boat, Rock On, for a charter. My family and I enjoyed every minute of our vacation thanks to Scott and Leah. We will be returning to the St. Thomas and staying with them again! Thanks for helping us make great memories! Jesse, Tara and Temperance.

Best trip ever

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo! The location was perfect for us. We have visited the islands 4 times before but had the best time this past trip due to the accomodations and the very helpful books they have compliled about ideas of places to go and things to do. We read about your suggestion to take the car ferry to St. John and we decided to give it a try. As a result, we had an amazing time visiting beaches that we would never have otherwise seen.

The condo's location within the complex (10 steps to the pool & 20 steps to Mim's) made the trip extremely relaxing. We weill be returning to STT and will hope that the same condo will be available for us to rent again!!! Thanks

  • 5 of 5

The condo location and position is wonderful. - the perfect combination of relaxing privacy and accessibility to beach activities, necessities, and restaurants. Condo is fully equipped with many amenities. We snorkeled with sea turtles and rays right off the condo beach! The pool was a bonus and large enough to swim laps. The restaurant food was very good and reasonably priced and next time we would pack a suitcase with nonperishable food items to cut on grocery store costs. Scott and Leah are very professional and provide intensive pre-trip advice with more info binders in the unit. We traveled with a 17 and 20 year old and they loved it too! Easy access to and from the airport. Many places to sight see, shop and snorkel on St. Thomas and the Ferry ride to St. John is a must with breathtaking sights and beaches, shopping, restaurants and activities as well - really a fantastic 2 for 1 vacation!

Nice Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and step daughter stayed at the browning’s condo and had a great time. The condo is centrally located to all the spots on the island. There are three restaurants within walking distance of the condo Iggy’s, Lobster Grill and Mins. We tried all three and were quite pleased. The condo itself met are needs. I would say that it needs a few upgrades to the screens and the bathroom. But overall it was clean and confortable for our family. The pool was right outside our unit, which we used every day. Never very crowded. The Browning’s were very attentive to our needs and were quick to respond to any questions or problems we had. In order to truly enjoy the island, rent a car. I adjusted pretty easily to driving the narrow, winding roads of St Thomas. The first time driving on the left side of the road. Just remember to keep your left shoulder to the left side of the road and you will be fine. Every day we would visit a different beach. The beach at Bolongo is rocky and not a lot of sand. Bring your aqua socks if you go into the water. We took a tour of St Johns and it was the highlight of the trip. Great snorkeling at Trunk Bay. For a family laid back vacation, the Browning’s condo will meet your needs. Bring bug spray as the sand fleas and mosquitoes are really bad.

We had a wonderful trip to the island of St. Thomas. The location is the best thing about this unit. It was clean and comfortable. It had everything you might need for your stay including beach towels, snorkel gear, cooler for the beach trips, beach chairs and more. We enjoy snorkeling out our front door, pool and resturants too. Only thing we miss was sunsets but had beautiful sunrises to view from our balcony. Taxi into Red Hook for a little nightlife if you want a change of pace. A car is a must to see everyting. Would love to stay here again.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! Condo was clean, well appointed and in a perfect location. Five of us spent 2 glorious weeks here and never felt crowded. Prepared many fine meals right in the comfort of our condo's kitchen. We were a bit disappointed with Mim's, definitely let down at Lobster Grille but delighted with Iggies! Also found great food and drinks at Magen's Bay had a blast being entertained by The Fiddler at Latitude 18. The highlight of our stay was 2 days spent on the Browning's boat, Rock On! And Rock we did! Day one was spent with Scot and Leah and day 2 with Scot and Rickey. Both days were an absolute blast and we were treated like royalty by some of the most down to earth and fun people you can imagine! We feel like we've known them forever and will be returning to this piece of paradise. If you want to relax or party down, this is the place to be! Can't say enough good about our experience or all the new friends we made...can't wait to return!
