About the property

Great Time to be in the Islands! -Check out our Spring Specials!

Welcome to our Blue Waters I Villa, 1 Bedroom/1Bath at Point Pleasant. We are happy to invite you to enjoy your stay at beautiful Blue Waters I. Come for the weather but stay for the views. Point Pleasant is located on a hillside on the East End of St Thomas with fabulous views from the wrap around porches in our villa. On a clear day, which is about every day, you can see as far away as the British Virgin Islands.

Our unit can comfortably sleep 4, with a king sized bed and a queen sized sleeper Sofa. Views from every room! The balcony wraps from the entrance to the bedroom, across the living and dining rooms. The bedroom can be left open or closed off for privacy with expandable shutter doors. A separate locking door keeps the balcony private for dining, cocktails, morning coffee, and just relaxing and taking in the views.

The unit has a fully stocked kitchen, including coffee maker, toaster, and the all-important blender. Easy for cooking meals if you choose, or enjoy the onsite Mirador Restaurant which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Walk next door to Margaritaville for evening entertainment and dining. You can also take the short drive to Red Hook where you will find many restaurants and bars ranging from Duffy’s Love Shack for casual to the more romantic XO Bistro. Tap & Still for the best burgers and fries, and a selection of microbrews.

Red Hook has ferries to St. John (no passport required) and to Tortola 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. Or leave the car and enjoy a leisurely stroll to the many shops and restaurants.

If you want additional shopping, head downtown to Havensight, or to the beautiful Galleria shops at Yacht Haven Grande for great deals on jewelry, cameras, electronics and souvenirs for your friends and family. Beside the lower costs, all purchases are tax free!

Your hosts provides a cooler, beach chairs, and snorkel equipment free of charge. While taxis are available, your hosts recommend renting a car during your stay for greater flexibility.

Choose between one of the 3 pools at Point Pleasant, with a unique view from every one. Also, take one of the many nature trails on the property for even more amazing views of St John and the BVI. One of the paths will lead you down to the resorts secluded Sugar Beach, a great place to relax and watch the sunrise.

Or try to pick a favorite from among St Thomas’ world class beaches. Lindquist Beach (Smith Bay Park) is a quick 3 minute drive to the east, but has limited facilities, so feel free to pack the cooler and beach chairs, provided in our villa. For a beach with more amenities, travel 15 minutes to Magens Bay voted one of worlds top 10 beaches.

About Vicki and John Baran

Its never too early to start thinking about how you want to spend your retirement. We have always loved the islands and the water, and having a great view from the moment you lift your head off the pillow in the morning. Our Houston home has a lake view, and I can't imagine not having a water view in our Island Paradise home. We plan to spend more and more time in St Thomas each year until we can stay as long as we want.

Vicki and John Baran purchased this condo in 2014

Why Vicki and John Baran chose Smith Bay

We looked at several properties but kept coming back to Point Pleasant. Its truly one of a kind, up on the hilltop with spectacular views and waterfront also! And close enough to several beautiful beaches.

Paradise found!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely wonderful!! Everything you need is there & the owners are fabulous. Grounds are perfect for strolling down to Sugar Beach for sunset or Margaritaville for lunch. You can even cross over to Coki Beach. Pools provide awesome views. The condo is perfect & photos don't do it justice. Couldn't have found a better honeymoon spot!! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. Also, for the animal lovers, there is a sweet, black cat that visits the balcony each night. 👍

Beautiful View, warm breezes

  • 4 of 5

The pictures you see on the site for this room are accurate, it over looks a bay of perfectly aquamarine water. You get a lovely cool breeze daily because of it's location and there is no need for the airconditioner even though there is one. You will whine like a baby when you have to leave this island. Hummingbirds visit on a regular basis to take a sip out of the flowers. The area is hilly - actually very hilly so take your time getting up and down hills. The pools on site are gorgeous and while not heated they are very comfortable. There is a waterside restaurants with a decent menu and great cocktails. The king size bed is very comfortables with enough pillows to satisfy a sultan. There are full sliding doors on two sides of the condo that give you a great view of the bay and mountain areas. Kayak, snorkel gear and paddle board rentals are available on site. Very pretty views and fairly easy access to other attractions and restaurants on the island. Vicki and John are very helpful if you have questions. There is a tiny beach for this resort but a trip to Maegens Bay is a must, it's breathtaking.

Dated and disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Would have been nice to had more information where to find beach chairs, snorkel equipment, etc. Misleading as far as what is included everything is extra or not included because we rented from a private owner. Tub but no plug, toilet grew algae 2nd day we were there, bed was not comfortable, kitchen and bathroom very dated, lost power several times, tv reception was no signal or weak several times, enjoyed the spa, didn't mind the walking very hilly, enjoyed the upper pool was quiet and refreshing.we really enjoyed the island people and weather was great the 2 1/2 weeks. Took our car to St. John for a fun day.

Owner's Response: I am so saddened to hear this. I strive my best to ensure all of my guests have everything they might need in our condo. I provide information to all of my guests including my phone number, for calls or texts, and of course you can always email me via the website. I even request that when you arrive you let me know if there are any issues with the condo. Also, I have an onsite housekeeper and others that live there full time at the resort that can quickly respond to any problems that might arise. When you rent from any private owner the resort privileges are not included, but you also do not pay the resort fee, and our rates are typically lower for these reasons. As for power, the island does from time to time lose power on some or even all of the island. This is unfortunate but also out of my control. The TV reception could have been due to the power outage, but again if I had been made aware I could have had someone help to resolve the issue. Glad to hear that enjoyed the Island and the people and that the weather was, as always -Great.
