Beautiful Vacation Rental apartment Located in Red-Hook Quarters, St. Thomas, VI
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Great location and price

  • 4 of 5

I had an excellent stay at this house. The owner's could not be nicer and were very easy to deal with. On my first day they even drove me to the supermarket so I could pick up a few things. I mainly used this as a base of operations to explore the other Virgin Islands. For that purpose, this place was perfect. It is a short 10 minute walk to the Red Hook ferry and to the bars and restaurants of the Red Hook area. There is also a beautiful beach in Nazareth Bay that is an easy 5 minute walk the opposite way. As for the apartment, everything was as advertised in the pictures. It is a spacious 1 bedroom apartment with a balcony that has an picturesque view of the Red Hook Bay and beyond to St John. I really don't have any complaints with the place. If you are looking to be pampered in the lap of luxury, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for an inexpensive, clean, safe, and convenient place to enjoy this beautiful area, it is perfect.
