Overview

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.

Bedroom:

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.

Kitchen:

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.

FREE WiFi:

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.

Balcony:

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.

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

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!

The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great! It was always quiet since we were at the end of the resort. The view of the bay and the other islands is amazing. The shoreline grill is 2 minutes away and the food was great. This place is convenient to all the places you will want to see. I would stay here again.

Really pleased with our stay in St. Thomas. VERY relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at this villa and we were sad to see the week come to an end. The villa is located on the NICE side of the island, away from a lot of the hustle and bustle but VERY close to many attractions and ferries. The view, as stated, is fantastic. We enjoyed the sunrise each morning and most sunsets (when we were around). Use of a full kitchen was great and the other amenities were nice too (wifi, snorkeling gear, cable tv, etc.) We rented a Jeep Wrangler the full week (highly recommended) to get around both St. Thomas and St. John. It's not cheap, but made the most sense (as taxis can get expensive).

Parking to the villa was super easy and convenient. The pools and nature path around the resort is a nice addition.

Overall, a really great experience and would consider choosing this location again!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you would expect/as advertised. Great location, views, nicely decorated. Shawn responded promptly to a question I had while there. Unit is located on dead end, so there was always a parking spot and quiet.

Enjoyed Sugar Beach (little beach east of unit) which I nicknamed Sandbar Beach, because that's all it basically is. My husband, who has been a scuba diver for 30 years and logged over 200 dives, snorkeled at the little beach and saw squid for the first time. I also found some sea glass. Nice quiet little beach. Upper pool, which is a little walk mostly stairs, is quiet too with view of Pillsbury Sound.

Shoreline Bar is a short walk west of unit, nice employees...say "hey" to Amber she's great!

Yes, I would book this unit again!

Gorgeous views, nice property on the side of the mountain

  • 4 of 5

We liked staying at Point Pleasant. The condo was suitable for what we needed. The owner was easy to reach and provided good suggestions for places to eat and visit. A little maintenance would go a long way though. The screens for the doors didn't work and a fresh coat of paint would work wonders. The bed was amazing. Overall, for no more than we were in our condo, it worked.

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 !!!
