About the property

The best place on the island for the price.

This villa is sits right on the water! You are 20 feet above the water and look at fish swim by, and hear the gentle sounds of the waves day and night. For 2016 we are upgrading you to 1,200 thread count sheets for incredible comfort. The reviews tell you how AMAZING this villa is; how you receive the best Island Tips from me; plus I am always available by phone or email if you have questions during your stay.

AMAZING Villa at an AMAZING Price:

This Villa sits right on the water so you hear the gentle sounds of the waves below day and night; and spectacular views from inside and the porch. It has a newly remodeled kitchen and bath which are both gorgeous, new furniture and spectacular views. You will sleep on 1,200 thread count Egyptian Cotton sheets, and use high-end towels, beach towels, surf the web on FREE WiFi right in the Villa. You will also have many complimentary items waiting for you to include a few drinks, sodas, waters and snacks to get you started - plus soap, shampoo, conditioner and a hair dryer so you don't need to pack those.


A King sized teak canopy bed. Sleep soundly on the comfortable new mattress with great views of the Caribbean from your bed. A large Air Conditioner keeps the entire place cool. An 8 foot closet with shelf space plus a beautiful dresser.


Open floor plan to the dining and living room creating a great room effect. New cabinets, an exotic ocean rock counter, stainless steel appliances and an automatic ice-maker. Includes a stove top, a microwave, coffee maker and complimentary coffee and tea. Amazing views from the kitchen.


Fully renovated bath that is absolutely gorgeous. The shower was completely done in river rock with a glass panel wall.

Living Room:

An excellent room that starts in the kitchen, has a great pub table with comfortable chairs; flows into the living room with a sleeper sofa, side chairs, coffee table plus a NEW 39' Flat Screen TV with cable. Tall speaker tower to dock your iPod or iPhone to play your favorite music.


Surf the web briefly in the morning; upload photos of your days adventures the same night. Work remotely for a few hours if you need to. It's an excellent signal.


You can see 9 islands from the 24 foot wide balcony including St John, Tortola, and more. The sun rises off the front so you will see many of the best sunrises you'll ever see. You are only 20 feet over the water so you hear the gentle waves below - day and night. You see turtles in the water, iguanas in trees, plus pelicans and hummingbirds from the balcony. Guests call it 'A Million Dollar View'.

The Spectacular Views:

The view off the front is great, but the 'side yard' is a stunningly beautiful bay as well. You also have a great view through the 8 foot wide window in the living room over looking Water Bay.

Other Accessories:

Brand new pots and pans; plates and silverware; and real glasses although some are likely to break. Beach towels, snorkel gear and beach chairs.

Overall Quality:

The highest quality finishing and furnishings throughout the villa. Sleeping on 1,200 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets feels so nice after a long day in the sun. It's the heavenly sleep you deserve on vacation.

About Shawn

I love to travel and love the islands. I was lucky enough to read about the East End of St Thomas one day and how easy it is to take a ferry or charter to other islands, then to come visit and find this amazing Villa in what is truly Paradise.

Shawn purchased this villa in 2012

Why Shawn chose East End

I've been to 20 islands and loved them all until I found the East End of St Thomas - and had a chance to experience the Virgin Islands - which made all other islands pale by comparison.

What makes this villa unique

Walk 3 mins to sit on the beach or go snorkeling. Walk 1 min to sit at the pool or hang at the waterside restaurant. Take kayaks; rent jet skis; or... visit Magens Bay the #1 beach on St Thomas (and top 3 in the VI). Go 1 mile down the road to Lindquist beach which is amazing, and since so few know of it you'll see almost no one there - seriously and amazing beach in paradise almost to yourself.

Easy access to Trunk Bay the #1 Beach in all the VI and a top 5 in the world; plus many more islands. I'll gladly tell ya how to get to take day trips to other islands such as Jost van Dyke to Soggy Dollar (#1 beach bar in the world 6 years straight); Tortola (to Cane Garden Bay or Nanny Cay); or Virgin Gorda to 'the Baths' which is also referred to as the 8th Wonder of the World. We are so close to all this, I've seen most of it already on my current trip - all you need to do it get up and go.

I can recommend different day charters that will include a stop on an island or two, include a snorkel stop and then good music and an open bar. I've gone on many of them, and can attest that the day trips are fun for all on board.

I'll be glad to give you the details on exactly what you need to know and where to go for anything you think you'd like to do

The view is amazing from room. Location perfect! Beaches nearby are seriously amazing with the clearest waters. Owner is very nice and amazingly helpful. Only recommendation is to get new utensils for cooking, it could use an update. We went with our 4 year old and she loved it. The parking is right in front of room very conveninent. Place is located literally on the mountain with the most spectacular views and pools are nice. The marghaRitaville next door is convenient for fun and the restaurant on premise with amazing views and amazing drinks!

Point Pleasant

  • 4 of 5

The property views are excellent. The bed was phenomenal, so comfortable. When we arrived there were snacks and some beer, which was helpful. It's a very nice condo. However getting to the property up and down hills wasn't always easy especially at night. The outside lights on the porch weren't working at all and one of the two outside lights in front was out.It would have been nice to have lights especially leaving the property at night. My recommendation is to get two lounge chairs for the porch for people to relax out there and take a nap. Overall it was a pleasurable stay

Location is great. View is outstanding.

  • 3 of 5

The view from this property is absolutely gorgeous. Walking through the resort is not easy...very steep hills or too many stairs. May be difficult for older people to navigate easily. The food and service at the Shoreline restaurant on the property were excellent.

The condo we stayed in has some deferred maintenance issues that need to be addressed. There is absolutely not one outside light that works, making return to the unit after dark very difficult. A table on the deck was so rusted and falling apart, that it shed itself daily leaving broken sharp points on the deck. The entrance to the condo has 6 4-foot glass sliding doors, only 2 of which move. All screens and their frames are broken, rusted and torn, and kept us from opening up to enjoy the wonderful breezes. The living (TV) room and the bedroom share one lamp, which made reading in the evening next to impossible. The safe was broken and not useable. A 3-light fixture over the bathroom sink had one burned out bulb, one incandescent bulb, and one spiral energy-saving bulb. Another major concern was the lack of responsiveness from the owner when we pointed out these issues. We e-mailed him upon arrival, and didn't hear back from him for over a week, upon our return home.

This was our first VRBO experience, and we are not sure we would want to take another chance renting from a VRBO owner.

Beautiful setting, wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from staying at Shawn's condo in Pt. Pleasant. Definitely rates as one of the best vacations we have ever had. Even before we arrived, Shawn sent us 4 or 5 pages of recommendations of things to do, places to eat, and must see's to visit. All of these were spot on. Our favorite recommendations of his were eating pizza at Island Time and dinner at XO Bistro. These were both great. We also took Shawn's recommendation and booked a tour with Morningstar charters for an afternoon of sailing and snorkling. Mike and Bridgette were our hosts and they were awesome. The property itself is very well kept and Shawn's condo has breathtaking views. We even texted him a few times during our stay and he was quick to answer. As promised, he had snacks and beverages awaiting our arrival. It was also nice to have extra sunscreen, beach towels, and a cooler available for our use. The screen door has rusted out over the years and needs to be replaced, but other than that this place was perfect. When we visit St. Thomas again we will definitely be renting Shawn's villa!

Unbeleivable 30 Year Anniversary !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the time of our life ! Could be in the top 5 of all our trips ! The condo Shawn had for us was the best for location, view to the East, cleanliness, modern finishes and amenities, and overall BANG FOR THE BUCK ! Point Pleasant staff was very helpful too ! We stayed busy everyday going from one end of the island to the other ! Rental Car a MUST ! No problem driving as I caught onto the left lane fast ! We took the Bad Kitty trip to The Baths, and Jost Van Dyke and another day we went fishing with a charter captain out of Hull Bay. We took the rental car over to St. John and spend one day there from Trunk Bay to the downtown district. Everyone we encountered there were superb and very friendly. No problems anywhere we went. We ate breakfast at the condo every morning and packed the Condo Cooler and Condo snorkeling gear and chairs each day we headed out. That was great having those items to use as we ventured to the many beaches. Every beach has its own Cantina grill so we ate lunch at these beach Cantinas' and a lite dinner close by the Condo. We will be back !

Exceptional view and relaxing vacay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Shawn's condo for a week with my mother. It was our first time in St. Thomas and we had a difficult travel day to the island. I admit that driving on the left side of the road, at night, while exhausted in a new place was extremely taxing and by the time we made it to the condo, I wasn't leaving anytime soon! Unfortunately, we hadn't eaten anything and were very hungry, so we were grateful that Shawn had some snacks provided at his place (some of the foods were old and needed tossing, while others were fine). We also stopped by the lobby and bought some chips and dip to make it through the night. The condo was clean and quiet with the most remarkable view! Honestly, I've traveled quite a bit and I don't think that I have ever stayed somewhere with such an exceptional view. The sound of the waves was so beautiful and relaxing; they could even be heard inside the unit with all of the doors and windows closed. Every day we spotted iguanas in the brush around the balcony and loved that. At night, we could plainly hear live music coming from Margaritaville. While it didn't bother us, it might bother those who like it very quiet at night. The kitchen inside the condo does not have an oven, but there is a stove, microwave, and full size fridge. We literally ate every meal in the condo, except one dinner out, and that helped us save a lot of money. We shopped at Moe's Market in Red Hook (about a 5 minute drive) for our groceries. As is typical of any island, the prices are about double what you'd spend in the continental US, so be prepared for that. I slept on the main bed and while it was fairly comfortable, I did notice that it kind of sinks in in the middle. The AC worked fine for us up until the last day/night of the trip; when we tried to turn it on, it would come on for a couple of minutes and then shut off and couldn't be turned on again for a long while (in which the pattern was repeated). You can't set the temperature of the AC and it's on some kind of timer... I never quite understood it. Anyhow, the last day and night of our trip was pretty warm and my mom didn't handle it with ease. Overall the condo was great for our needs and I loved the location. I felt it was a great choice for our vacation. I often texted Shawn throughout the trip with questions and he always answered them and had plenty of suggestions and advice. He is a great host. Thanks for sharing your space with us, Shawn! I hope to return to gorgeous St. Thomas.

Owner's Response: You are welcome! I hear from many people that is is the best view of any place they have ever stayed. So glad you and your mom loved it. The AC hasn't been an issue before, so I will have that looked at immediately. Welcome to stay ANYTIME !!!

Perfectly located on the East End of St Thomas just 3 miles west of Red Hook which has great restaurants, bars and the ferry docks to the other islands. Very close to Coki Beach, Lindquist Beach and Sapphire Beach, with Magen's Bay an easy drive; plus Trunk Bay an easy ferry ride. You can also take a Day Sail with Morningstar Sail Charters which is ranked as the #1 day sail on St Thomas - they run their trips from our property everyday at 10am (check with them for rates). You also have a great waterside restaurant and bar in Jack's Bight only a min from the Villa.

I'll be glad to help you with anything you need in planning your trip !!!
