About Billy Sinaplidis
My love and desire for the water started in my childhood years, growing up on the South Shore of Long Island. The water inspires me in every which way, and I knew that I always wanted my own piece of waterfront paradise. My professional background is in Real Estate - I own and am responsible for dozens of rentals across the NYC metro area. After traveling outside of the U.S., which include destinations in Europe, South America & Caribbean, I decided to take all of my experience and passion to pursue my dream on the beautiful island of St. Thomas.

The location was close to everything.
Nice quiet area
What an amazing trip. Billy the owner of the unit we rented gave us this 5 page welcome letter and let me tell you it was like our mini guide. The room is located in the perfect spot because the higher up you are the more stairs you have to climb and at pt pleasant there are ALOT of stairs. But we didnt mind. The view was amazing , location in the middle of everything . The room was updated and clean with a very nice view. Shoreline bar was amazing and only 2 sets of stairs below us which was super convenient for if we wanted to grab something to eat and snack. We will for sure be back again! Thank you Billy.
This was our first time to St. Thomas and the location of the condo was perfect. It was a little hard to find at first due to the resort layout however; once we mastered it we loved it. Close to things to do and yet a bit secluded. It was a short walk to Coki Beach was a plus. They condo was the perfect size for two people any more than that it may be too small. The staff was very nice and helpful and the restaurants were great. Would definitely recommend it to any couple planning on going there.
Not what we expected
We were very disappointed upon arrival. Many of the amenities listed were under repair and had we known we would have booked elsewhere. The pool and bar & grill near our condo were both closed due to repairs. Due to the nature of the resort, climbing the hill to get to the other pools didn't interest us. There was no in resort transportation service as stated that we were aware of (saw or told about). The beaches on or near the property were not what I would call user friendly beaches. The one outside was Margaritaville was loaded in seaweed and the excavators were out there daily by 7:00 am trying to clean it up. It was a bit tricky to get to as well because it is not on the property but the adjacent property. We managed to go to the Margaritaville restaurant by walking along the rocky beach line and crossing a narrow water stream. The other "beach," a short walking distance from our condo, was very small with some sand but lots of rocks. Not a really a place to swim. We ended up going to Coki Beach twice (nice) via a car because again walking would have been a hike given the terrain of the resort. All in all, the first 24 hours at the condo was a bit of panic and disappoint until we resolved ourselves to finding a car rental so we could do other things around the island. The condo itself was ok. However, we couldn't get the TV to work for our entire stay and at night the room was very stuffy. We really never got a good night's sleep as the bed was not comfortable and too hard for us.
The island and the people were wonderful! Even though the island is still under a lot of repair, Red Hook was a great town to hang out at. Magen's Beach was absolutely beautiful. If you go to the island, definitely rent a car. Safari buses are ok and much cheaper but make getting places long.
Excellent and clean efficiency
My husband and I stayed here for 9 days in June 2018-and loved it! The room had everything the VRBO website stated-it was clean and fully working. The room description is accurately portrayed and well represented. We especially appreciated the condo's location because it is centrally located on the island and easy to get to restaurants, stores, & activities to do such as great beaches for great snorkeling, Coral World, Ecotours, beautiful beaches, sailboat & boating cruises, Top of the Mountain, shopping, safari buses, island hopping ferries, etc., and did I mention great snorkeling? :) The room itself is well described-it has every needed convenience for you-including a clean kitchenette that offers everything required if you do decide to cook. The owner Billy was very helpful and prompt to respond to all of our questions and needs. Going a bit further than most, he also provided us with a fully detailed handout of rental expectations, helpful island suggestions, and nearby restaurant options available to you. We had an excellent experience with no surprises and only positive memories of a wonderful vacation stay. We absolutely loved this place and highly recommend the place and its owner.
Such a great condo!
We really enjoyed our stay. Home away from home but with amazing views!
