About the property

Great Time to be in the Islands-Check our our rates!

Welcome to our Island Paradise Villa. We are new owners and are happy to invite you to enjoy your stay in the beautiful Point Pleasant Resort. Come for the weather, stay for the views. This unique resort 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 full sized pull out couch. 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 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 open air Shoreline Bar & Grill open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Or 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 or Pesce. A fairly new addition is The Tap & Still Brew pub 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 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, and the Activities Center offers information on a variety of other activities on the island. While taxis and shuttles 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. There you can enjoy chair rentals, shower facilities, snack bar and gift shop, not to mention bar service at the water's edge. Coki beach, a 10 minute walk boasts some of the best snorkeling and diving on the Island. Dive equipment is available for rent on Coki, and you can see many varieties of coral as well as turtles, eagle rays and several types of tropical fish.

St. Thomas has many other attractions available such as: Golf at Mahogany Run, Zip Line Tours (Tree Limin Extreme), Coral World Ocean Park for snuba diving, shark encounters, Sea Lion Swim, and Turtle encounters, not to mention plenty of fishing, and boating opportunities.

Our villa is cleaned before and after your stay but for a small additional fee can be cleaned every other day. Cable TV and FREE wi-fi internet in the villa.

• Balcony with outdoor furniture overlooking the grounds and Water Bay – perfect for having morning coffee or an evening cocktail.

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 East End

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 close enough to several beautiful beaches.

Great, Easy, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say what a great stay that we had. this condo is so close to Margaritaville, and just about everything you would want to explore in St Thomas. our personally favorite thing about this condo was that it was close to red hook and a short ferry ride to Cruz Bay, St John. We made the trip over to St Johns twice and got a chance to explore both islands. The condo has everything you need to cook your own food and the balcony is great. also very silent at night just overall a great community.

The property was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here at Point Pleasant! The wrap around porch was beautiful and the unit was clean and well stocked if you wanted to cook! We didn't! The restaurant that was on property was limited, but everything we had there was delicious, and the staff there were WONDERFUL, and so friendly! All in all, we will definitely be back!

Condo is reasonably priced. Enjoyed our six day vacation at Point Pleasant.

  • 3 of 5

Point Pleasant Resort is more like a gated community than a resort. True, it has three pool, on-site water front bar/restaurant and a small beach but lacks the personal services of a resort. Of course the lower rental price is reflective of missing amenities. Vicki, the condo owner, was very responsive and easy to work with even though she lives off-island. Condo was clean but furnishings and interior are dated. A key lock safe was in the condo and it was much appreciated. I think the condo is best suited for a couple versus a family of four. Studio couch is in middle of family room with no blinds to block morning sun and neighbors on their patio. View from L shaped patio is spectacular. Dead bolt entrance gate to condo provides good security and allows you to leave sliding doors open at night to hear the wave crash on the beach and allows for the night breeze to cool the condo without having to use the air conditioner.

In order to make your stay enjoyable and to get to the various beaches and island restaurants, a rental car is a must. Point Pleasant is on the side of a mountain, so access to the beach, upper pools, registration office and laundry is a considerable hike. Condo is several hundred feet above the sea. Walking down to bar/restaurant and lower pool on uneven stone steps could be a challenge for someone not sure of foot. Climb back up took our breath way, but we are senior citizens. One other thing you should be aware of is the Wyndham Margaritaville Resort is next door and they are building phase II. The building under construction is within 100 feet and they start work promptly at 7 AM. If you're not an early riser, you could be disappoint with this condo until construction is complete sometime later this spring.

Sugar Beach on the resort property is a neat little beach; only about 80 feet wide. Get there early because there are only three sunning beds and the mountain blocks the sun around 1 PM. Best beach we found was Lindquist Beach. Only a 5 minute drive from the condo. Cost is $10 but it is spectacular. Take the bag chairs, snorkel gear and refreshment coolers from the condo to the beach.

Shoreline bar/restaurant in the resort has very reasonable priced drinks and a good sandwich and breakfast menus. Dinners are not so great. Margaritaville is a short walk and a must for at least one dinner and has live entertainment. Fish Tails in Red Hooks, Sunset Grill and Mim's are good sea side restaurants.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was PERFECT for my girlfriend getaway. It was beautiful with the wrap around porch and scenic views. The 3 pools on the property were beautiful and the proximity to Coki beach was perfect! We had a car so getting to and from the condo was a breeze. A mattress pad on the pull out would be ideal, but it still wasn't an uncomfortable sleep. The king bed in the main bedroom was super comfy. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the condo don't do it justice. The wrap around balcony and its views were perfect. We did not use the air conditioner once, all the breeze was enough for day and night. We rented a car and found our favorite beaches where we spent all day on, number one was Magen's. Loved this condo, and St Thomas.
