About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

An added benefit for St. Thomas is that No Passport is required for US Citizens to visit the US Virgin Islands!!!

This one bedroom apartment with modern kitchen with gas stove and oven, Dish HD Satellite TVs, comfortable furniture, queen bed, plus a full sized pull out sofa bed and large shower with bench, will relax you after a long fun day at beach. Automatic generator to run all aspects of apartment if power goes out. Strong WIFI signal. Large wooden deck with an ocean view. The best feature of this apartment is the location location. Stay in an apartment setting while enjoying the amenities of a beach resort right across the street which include 2 restaurants, occasional live entertainment, Beach hut with floats, Hobie Cats, Standup Paddles boards, Wind Surfers and a 52 Catamaran Sailboat. A perfect home base in St. Thomas & to St. John and surrounding islands. Within fifteen minutes by taxi or rental car are grocery stores, K-Mart, duty-free shopping in Charlotte Amalie, St. John ferry in Red Hook, 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 taking your rental car to St. John to explore & snorkel all the beaches).

Tasting and experiencing what St. Thomas has to offer is easy to do when you stay at my apartment. Two open-air seaside restaurants are among the most popular on St. Thomas where guests and locals gather day and night. Sit down for a full breakfast, lunchtime favorites or dinner with beautiful ocean views at Iggies Oasis located by the beachfront pool. Or head over to Mimms for dinner. When you’re thirsty, we have plenty of options. Swim up to the poolside bar & sip cocktails or toast with friends at Iggie's Oasis Bar.

Enjoy St Thomas, St John and Jost Van Dyke. Make sure to stop by the Soggy Dollar Bar and The One Love Bar located on the beach of White Bay.

Here are just a few of our top Virgin Islands adventures:

• Snorkel and swim with sea turtles on Heavenly Days Catamaran sail boat.

• Scuba dive with the St. Thomas Diving Club, they offer beginning and advanced courses.

About Paul Doumeng

I first moved to St. Thomas in 1968 with my family from New York. My family started a houseboat business here and later in 1974 bought into a Beach Resort that we still own and manage. After a short time of living in San Francisco, where I was married, my wife Colleen and I moved back to St. Thomas and started our family. With a couple kids in college we decided to rent out our newly remodeled one bedroom apartment.

Paul Doumeng purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Paul Doumeng chose Bolongo

My apartment offers a home style vacation with all the resort amenities across the street as an option.

What makes this apartment unique

Commonly used as a retreat if family staying at the resort for perhaps a wedding, you can play and return to your private space.

Awesome apartment with outstanding amenities

  • 5 of 5

Paul's apartment across from Bolongo Bay Resort was amazing! The apartment itself was spacious, quiet, and comfortable; it had everything we needed for our St. Thomas home-away-from-home. In addition, having access to the Bolongo Bay Resort facilities just across the street meant we had a swimming pool, beach equipment like kayaks and even a sailboat, not to mention snorkel equipment, beach towels, and paddleboards. Finally, the two on-site restaurants were handy for the meals we chose not to prepare for ourselves in the apartment's fully-equipped kitchen. Paul and the Bolongo staff were gracious, friendly, and welcoming. I'd definitely recommend this apartment for your St. Thomas stay and would eagerly book it again if we return to St. Thomas.

Simply Fantastic! Wonderful people, spacious apartment with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This a simply lovely, lovely place! My friend and I stayed here for a week and never left the resort! Fantastic views from the apartment and delicious food at the Lobster Grille!!! The snorkeling was very cool, we could see all sorts of fish in Bolongo Bay itself and got to see Sea Turtles and more fish on the "Heavenly Days" Catamaran boat trip! We went snorkeling every day!

Paul and Colleen are just wonderful warm, welcoming, friendly, considerate, thoughtful, kind, and open hearted people! They were extremely kind to us and provided everything we needed. They went over and beyond the call of duty! You are sure to love this place and all the wonderful, friendly and helpful people who work at the resort! "007" makes fantastic drinks at the swim up bar in the swimming pool!! A Leprechaun, named "Keith" is a hoot to talk with and very helpful, but can vanish in a flash if your luggage looks like it is from the "Invasion of Normandy!"

The resort has all sorts of fun water equipment to use, like paddle boards, pedal water tricycles, sea kayaks, wind surf boards, and snorkeling equipment that you can use for free from 8AM to 4:30PM. There are taxis that can take you anywhere on the island for minimal charges.

There is also a beach bar, called "Iggies" with live music some nights where you can dance in the sand as well as play volley ball and other games. I just wish they had music every night.

One thought, the hill is a bit steep that the apartment is on, so make sure to bring some supportive walking shoes. Also, water shoes are a real benefit at the beach, but the gift shop at the resort sells them.

Beautiful and clean, great snorkeling, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The place was beautiful and clean. It was right across from Iggies and the Bolongo Bay resort. We had the best meal at Bolongo Bay (seafood linguine with lobster sauce - yum). The snorkeling was great (go to the left side to see more). Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. After I had left an expensive item there, they went above and beyond to return it to me. The price to stay there was very reasonable. I recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay (no need for a car - everything is right there) in St. Thomas.
