Overview

About the property

This unit has been 100% updated with all new high end furnishings and fixtures.

Welcome to Point Pleasant, a unique "condotel" community on the East End of St. Thomas! To see a video of this property, click on the "Video" tab at the top of the picture shown above (and please ignore the construction noise in the background, it was a temporary renovation and is over now!)...then contact us to book it!

Blue Dreams Villa is managed by us, the owners! The biggest and best difference between renting with us and a unit only available for rent through the resort hotel operator is that we’re able to focus on just one rental at a time – YOURS! We can also GUARANTEE that THIS is the property you'll get when you arrive, no matter how long you stay. Please keep in mind that all units on Point Pleasant are independently owned so no two are alike. With our location, layout, renovation, and furnishings we strongly feel we're competitively priced and a great value, and we hope you think so too!

We realize the resort hotel operator currently provides off-site taxi transportation for their guests; however, as our guest you'll have access to hire an exclusive personal driver with over thirty years experience and rates that are competitive with taxis but with much better customer service and white glove treatment. When he works with our guests he's available on an on-call basis, and his reviews are exceptional. If you're worried about driving on the left-hand side of the road, then forgo a rental car and hire our exclusive driver, and save money as well!

When creating your vacation rental, our goal was to provide you with a luxurious but comfortable rental villa, and we’ve taken great care to create a relaxing environment where you can feel completely at home with decorative touches, high-end furnishings, luxurious linens, commercial grade patio furniture, a fully equipped kitchen…all the conveniences and feel of home and maybe even more!

Since we only have one unit to focus on, it’s easy to maintain our high standards and make sure everything will be in order for you upon arrival to ensure a delightful experience during your stay. Our guests have thanked us over and over for the helpful and timely customer service that we’re happy to provide both before your arrival and during your stay; in fact, they often say we go “above and beyond!” Since we’ve created such a high quality guest experience, the onsite resort management company asked us to include our villa in their “Executive Villa” program, and while we are appreciative of the compliment we prefer to manage our villa ourselves because we truly enjoy interacting with our guests and hearing that what we’ve created has made an impact on their lives.

We’ve spent a lot of time on St. Thomas exploring the island to discover the hidden gems, trying a multitude of restaurants to find those we can personally recommend, and going on excursions to seek out those that offer our guests the best experience, excellent value and customer service so we can be your personal concierge and share our findings with you!

We’re also happy to provide items for your exclusive personal use that aren’t shared with the guests of dozens of villas participating in the resort hotel program rental pool, among which are complimentary use of your own snorkel gear, beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, pool floats, and yoga mats and CDs during your stay. Regardless, just like everyone else on the resort you'll have access to all three pools, the beach, restaurant, and on-site shuttle service.

The Point Pleasant hotel charges their guests a Resort Fee, but why pay for things you have no intention of using and feeling like you're stuck from going elsewhere since since you've already paid for them? As our guest you'll feel you have the flexibility of checking out the water activities available at locations all around the island and explore numerous different beaches and experience more of what St. Thomas and St. John have to offer!

Since April 2014 we spent almost three months renovating and replacing everything in our villa so it’s practically brand new! You’ve probably seen other villas for rent at Point Pleasant as well as other resorts on St. Thomas, but I’d like to point out all the things we have to offer that makes us UNIQUE (other units may have some of these things, but we have them ALL!). Our villa has:

• An on-island representative available for your assistance

• Access to a private driver with incredibly reasonable rates for off-site transportation

• Been totally renovated in June 2014 so EVERYTHING is updated! (over $60k renovation)

• A private balcony

• Is located on “The Hilltop” and catches the trade wind breeze so you don’t need the air conditioner as often, and the view is to die for!

• Travertine floors throughout

• An oversize shower with a tankless hot water unit (no running out of hot water!)

• Complimentary salon quality Bumble & Bumble shampoo and conditioner provided

• A 30’ peaked ceiling with exposed beams for a wonderful West Indian atmosphere

• A loft bedroom with an ocean view from your West Indian four poster king size bed

• A Simmons Envy Plush comforpedic king size memory foam mattress (delivered 10/7/15)

• The air conditioner unit on the wall directly above the bed and a ceiling fan right over the bed, all for your cooling comfort needs

• A secure digital front entry lock with your unique code – the ultimate in security with no need to keep track of keys

• High end designer furnishings throughout

• Even the locals are in awe of our unique Great Room ceiling fan!

• An oh-so-comfortable commercial grade patio furniture sectional with thick cushions – a wonderful spot for morning coffee, afternoon nap or evening cocktail

• A bar height patio table with four swivel chairs so you can see over the railing for an unobstructed view while you enjoy your meals and/or cocktails

• An extremely comfortable American Leather Comfort Sleeper queen size sleeper sofa with a gel mattress

• An insanely equipped kitchen with a 24” ceramic cooktop range and everything a gourmet chef will need

• Complimentary Gevalia coffee provided for delicious coffee every morning

• A 50” Samsung HD TV with sound bar

• A chest full of pool and beach toys galore, including very nice snorkel gear

• Free WiFi

• A sound machine by the bed for light sleepers (yes, it plays surf sounds too!)

• Light diffusing window treatments so you don’t wake up at 6:00 AM!

We enjoy sailing so you’ll notice we’ve decorated with subtle nautical touches here and there, and the color selection was inspired by the mesmerizing ever changing view that’s the focal point of our condo (the walls are the color of shallow water and the floors are the colors of sand).

As the owners of your villa, we are 100% invested in YOUR experience and doing everything we can to ensure you have everything you need to have an amazing vacation. We’re very proud of our villa and we hope you’ll settle in, relax, unwind and create memories that will last a lifetime. Our goal is to create such an exceptional experience that you never want to leave, but we'll be excited and honored to welcome you back year after year!

Welcome home!

About Robin Hurley

David and I have been married for since 1997 and currently live in Edmond, OK but plan on relocating to St. Thomas in a few years. It’s just the two of us, no kids, because by the time we got married, travelled and just had fun together, we decided it was too late so we’re that couple that our friends want to ask us to babysit or adopt us as their kids’ Aunt and Uncle, but we foster rescue dogs for the Central Oklahoma Humane Society instead!

David grew up in Cincinnati, OH and moved to Oklahoma in 1985 with the US Air Force. Shortly after arriving he learned how to windsurf and his love of sailing was born. When he later bought a 14’ hobie cat, I quickly became hooked on the thrill of “riding the hull” and MY love of sailing began. We took our first sailing charter in the Virgin Islands in 2003 on the Ayacanora and absolutely fell in love with the Virgin Islands and have been back many times since then.

In 2009 we started our own sailing charter business on Lake Hefner in OKC and have welcomed more than 1500 guests aboard. This experience has honed our skills at providing outstanding customer service which we feel has successfully translated into managing our vacation rental property.

I grew up in Lawrence, KS and besides sailing my other passion is home renovating and decorating. We’d been talking about buying property on St. Thomas for a while, so after a trip in January 2014 we found the perfect place on Point Pleasant and made an offer! I arrived on-island in April 2014 and spent the next ten weeks renovating, doing a lot of the work ourselves. The condo was built in the late 1970s and hadn’t been touched in decades so we got rid of everything, made a lot of improvements and cosmetic changes and bought all new furnishings, fixtures and household items and are very proud of the result. We love our island home-away-from-home and feel we’ve created the perfect retreat not just for us but for you as well and hope you feel as comfortable there as we do!

Robin Hurley purchased this condo in 2014

Why Robin Hurley chose Smith Bay

We chose Point Pleasant because it had several features that set it apart from other properties on the island that makes it unique. Consider these features and see if they’re what you’re looking for as well (then call me to book our villa!):

• Point Pleasant was built on the hillside of Mt. Pleasant, and since the units are grouped into numerous separate buildings it has more of a resort setting environment rather than a large hotel atmosphere or the feel of an apartment complex.

• Even though you think it might be really cool to rent a property right on the beach, the benefits of renting a hillside property are: the breezes are wonderful (especially in the hilltop units) so it’s rare to feel the need to run the a/c; privacy on your balcony and in your unit (I confess when I walk by a unit on the beach I look in the windows to see how it’s decorated, and when there’s people inside I feel like a peeping Tom!); you don’t need to worry about going to the gym, just walk the hillside for buns of steel (so you can feel free to eat as much as you want!); and the views are breathtakingly beautiful!

• Most units have a wide expanse of windows which means a better view and bigger living space (unlike the “tunnel” effect at other resort properties with less than half the width).

• 24 hour security guards at the property entrance, not just at night.

• Small but private beach where more often than not you will be the only guests there!

• You have the use of three pools at different levels of the property, each with its own distinct feel and view, but your Hilltop pool is a very short walk away and situated where you won’t hear any noise, and often times you’ll have it all to yourself.

• A nature trail planned for and built by the original owners of Point Pleasant.

• Onsite shuttle service just a phone call away (for those of us who don’t want to work on our buns on vacation!).

What makes this condo unique

You’ve probably seen other villas for rent at Point Pleasant as well as other resorts on St. Thomas, but I’d like to point out all the things we have to offer that makes us unique (other units may have some of these things, but we have them all!). Our unit has:

• Been totally renovated in June 2014 so EVERYTHING is updated! (over $60k renovation)

• A private balcony…just sayin’!

• A hilltop location that catches the breeze so you don’t need the air conditioner as often, and the view is to die for!

• Travertine floors throughout

• An oversize shower with a tankless hot water unit

• A 30’ peaked ceiling with exposed beams for a wonderful West Indian atmosphere

Honeymoon in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying at the condo for our Honeymoon! Everything was beautiful, clean, and definitely gave off a "welcome to paradise" feel to it. The view was gorgeous and you got a lovely breeze off the water when you opened the sliding glass doors, helping to keep the condo relatively cool without using the AC. We had all the kitchen tools that we needed to make dinner as well as a thick binder full of great restaurant recommendations for when we wanted to eat out. We hope that we will be able to return to the Virgin Islands soon!

OMG!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were lost for words when we walked into our DREAM villa, our home for 5 days. This is the first vacation that I didn't a full agenda planned everyday and I'm so glad I didn't. Blue Dreams Villa was so nice and the view so beautiful the majority of our time was spent on the balcony. Robin was AMAZING...she takes very good care of her guest and make sure you have everything you need and all questions answered ahead of time. This was the BEST condo/villa/home-away that I have every stayed in. OMG, it was absolutely beautiful and amazing. Point Pleasant staff was top notch as well!!!
