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 Smith Bay

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

What a wonderful condo!! The view is amazing! Waking up and looking out at the islands....there is nothing better. We stayed mid January it was my husband, 7 yr old son and myself, we had a fantastic time. The condo is perfect. Plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen was great for cooking breakfast and making lunches to take to the beach everyday. We enjoyed sitting on the deck looking down at the fish and turtles. Even the iguanas hanging in the trees made for great fun watching them. The condo is in a great location to red hook, we ate dinner there every night. Thank you for a perfect stay Shawn we hope to be back next year

Paradise Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Even after two back-to-back hurricanes this is still a paradise. Absolutely perfect get-a-way- St. Thomas vacation for an adult couple. My wife an I have been coming to Point Pleasant for 15 years and this is one of the best times we have had. We spent our entire time there and had no need to go elsewhere.

Amazing View & Breeze

  • 5 of 5

This is a very efficient condo with a spectacular view. Shawn was an exceptional host that was very helpful with all the info on St Thomas. Location is very quiet with plenty of privacy. There are a few things that could use attention but it did not inconvenience our stay. We never had the air because the breeze was all we needed. We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Glad you loved the spectacular view and thought I was an exceptional host. My apologies that the cable TV was out then, but it is back on now. For clarification, the AC works great and the point was they "didn't have the air 'on' because the breeze was all they needed". The breeze right there on the water is amazing!

Magazine worthy views!

  • 4 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here the first week that the resort was open following Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Shawn could not have been any nicer or more accommodating considering power had only been turned back on 3 days prior. He is an absolute pleasure to work with (very responsive) and went way above and beyond to make sure everything was clean, ready and working to our liking.

His place was the perfect size for two people. It has modern amenities, was clean and has rocking air conditioning!!!! The kitchen was well stocked with all the dishes, pots and pans, and glasses one would need to enjoy an incredible stay. There is an amazing television in the condo along with some awesome DVDs!

In addition, he has plenty of quality beach towels (I am a towel snob!), 2 beach chairs, a small cooler, and other little beach items that we utilized.

The natural beauty of this location is breathtaking! The breeze, view and nature of the property made for the perfect vacation!

Owner's Response: This may have been a 4 star rating, but wow read that review! You do have magazine worthy views from bed, the couch, the kitchen and the porch! I always go above and beyond for all my guests, so book this villa and know you are getting the best service of any owner! The villa has brand new sheets, towels and all kitchenware. The TV is huge at 55" and a great selection of DVDs for you, plus the AC is rocking (awesome)! I promise that you will LOVE your stay in this villa!

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 daughters and I stayed in this villa 8/10-8/17/17. The place is gorgeous! Just as it looks in the pictures. A few minute drive to Red Hook, Coki Beach, Lindquist Beach, etc. We did rent a car, which I feel is a must... the resort is big and on the side of a cliff. Shawn's villa is perfectly located between the pool/Shoreline Bar and Grille and the private beach access. The beach is very small, but we loved it. There was great snorkeling there and (just to name a few cool ones) we saw Puffer Fish, enormous Tarpin, conch, etc. Much more relaxed snorkeling experience than Coki which is a huge place for tourists and you are constantly bumping into people.

The view from the balcony is amazing.. I got up earlier than everyone else every morning just to go sit out there and drink my coffee and take in the view. Shawn was extremely helpful with tips... told me I should get up early and watch the sunrise.... which is did (alone lol!), and it was AMAZING and totally worth it.

There is a lot of beach/snorkel accessories in the closet. Snorkels, masks, fins, 2 soft sided coolers (small and medium sized), noodles, beach chairs... even though we brought our own stuff, we still dug into his stash and it was nice to have!! He seems to have it all covered!!

My husband and I both feel the place was perfect for us and can't wait to return!

Now, having said that there are a few things that were minor but I feel I should mention (and as you could tell by the 5 star rating it didn't effect the outcome of our trip AT ALL, but should be noted)...

1. The photos show 2 tables/chair sets and 2 loungers on the patio... that is not the case. There were 2 tables (one broken) and 2 chairs... no loungers. So for a room that held 4, only 2 of us had seating outside at a time. Loungers, or at least 4 chairs would have been SWEET.

2. The safe was broken.

3. The owner supplies shampoo/conditioner for the unit, however we got there and it was a 1/4 bottle of baby shampoo and a bottle of conditioner... not enough for 4 people for the week. If I had known, I would have brought my own. Not a big deal at all, we went and bought some more (and left it there).. but just a heads up if you are particular with what you use.

4. The screen door was broken, but we just left the sliders open without it and there were zero bugs so it was fine...

Can't wait to go back, miss it already!

Owner's Response: The place is perfect with the beaches and amazing water everywhere from the moment you look out the sliding doors, and that breeze is incredible the second you open the doors. So glad you loved it.
