A relaxing, quiet place to stay while enjoying the beautiful Virgin Islands! We provide our guests with a welcome package including a list of our favorite things to do (Help us add to the list by providing us with your favorites), helpful hints and directions, allowing you the freedom to explore all the islands have to offer at your own pace.

The only way to truly see and explore is to rent a car! Pack up the cooler, the beach chairs and the snorkel gear and take them with you while exploring St. Thomas or take the car ferry to St. John for the day, stopping at all the beautiful beaches our islands offer.

Before your stay, provide us with a list and we will be happy to stock the fridge for you.

After a 5 minute drive to Red Hook, there are ferries to St. John (no passport required) and to Tortola, Jost Van Dyke and other islands in the BVI (passport required). Take the car ferry to St. John packed with your beach supplies and spend the day exploring and enjoying the beautiful beaches of St. John.

About Xaverie & Daniel Hull

The Virgin Islands is now our home. We love exploring and enjoying the beautiful beaches of all the Islands. After traveling the world as Military Brats, we finally found a place that we can call our home and we love that we get to share it with others.

Xaverie & Daniel Hull purchased this condo in 2010

Why Xaverie & Daniel Hull chose East End

We purchased Tortuga Del Mar for our personal enjoyment but wanted to share with others as we love it so much. We ended up buying another one for us to live in! We get the best of both worlds, being at home and being on vacation at the same time! Point Pleasant provides us with a quiet place to relax away from our busy schedules and is the perfect place to unwind.

What makes this condo unique

Close to Red Hook and the ferries to both St. John and the British Virgin Islands and even closer to our favorite beach - Lindquist Beach - a 2 minute drive down the road.

Property was beautiful and location was great!

  • 4 of 5

The best feature of our experience was the extremely friendly and helpful condo owners. They were readily available when needed to help when we had questions about the island and even went out of the way to let us know about a festival that was going on one day on the island so that we didn't happen upon it by chance and be stuck in traffic, disrupting other plans. The only issue we experienced was that the bathroom had a sulfur odor at times, which I assume was related to the treatment of the water. Otherwise, the condo was very well stocked with necessities in case we forgot anything, the view was great, the proximity to the pool was perfect, and all in all our choice to utilize this place really enhanced our experience on St. Thomas!

Every Thing We Needed

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay at Tortuga Del Mar. Owners were vey helpful with great communication, directions, locale information, and speedy responses to requests.

The unit is very comfortable, very well stocked, and has an awesome view.

Point Pleasant was as nice resort and with our 4 night, 5day stay we were not able to take advantage of everything it had to offer. We did, however, frequent the resorts Shoreline restaurant and, although quaint and small, it was likely our favorite restaurant on the island. Margaretville is just next door and easily reached by a nice walk on the beach. The resort is about an 5 minute drive from Redhook where you can ferry (car or person) to St John. Do not miss St John, we changed our plans and went twice. The Jeep book about day trips to St John, although a bit dated, was extremely helpful and is in the condo.

There was lots of extras that came with this unit, I would not think twice of booking with them again when we return, and we would recommend them to our friends. It was evident they cared and wanted those who stayed in their home to be welcomed.

Spectacular View!

  • 5 of 5

Third trip to St. Thomas and it never disappoints. First time stay at Point Pleasant. The condo was immaculate, easy to find and the view from the balcony was spectacular. I loved the updated unit. Kitchen was nicely stocked as well (we cooked every meal). It was very comfortable for our week stay. Did I mention the views were spectacular :)

At home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Tortuga Del Mar for the THIRD time now! Walking into the condo this time especially gave us the feeling of returning home ;). Xaverie and Daniel are super accommodating and helpful as always. The view that we love became even better due to some trees being cut down (kinda sad, I know). Always love our relaxing moments on that balcony! It's great staying somewhere that we can cook our own meals so we don't have to eat out all the time. We make most of our own breakfasts and pack lunches to take on our daily adventures. They have a cooler and beach chairs which makes it so easy to have awesome day trips! This is definitely our fav vacation spot!
