Why John Duncan chose Estate Nazareth
This is actually our third condo in St Thomas. Our friends and family love it here so much, we keep needing more room! From the turquoise ocean and the incredible sunset views, to the lush vegetation that grows on the island, we are head over heels in love with St. Thomas. The climate is great and the people that live here are the friendliest and most laid back you'll find.
What makes this Condo unique
The best thing about this space is the view. It's just breathtaking, and the terrace gives you true indoor/outdoor living space. The condo is spacious, so no one feels cramped which is ideal when trying to relax. And the complex has everything you need, really no reason to leave!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Updates are needed
This condo needs updating. The pictures are misleading. There are bugs in the home and we ran out of supplies like tissue and trash bags. Be prepared to strip beds, take out trash and clean the home prior to departure.
I'm not sure what to say. You're the first to leave such a damning review. I wish you'd have contacted me at some point either during or after your stay. Based on my cleaners report and photos of how you left the condo, it seems you guys 'partied like rockstars' :)
On a serious note though, I could've easily rectified your issues with trash bags and toilet paper. They were under the kitchen sink. We don't expect the guests to clean anything. We ask they take out the trash, but the cleaning fee that is paid means it is purely a request, not an instruction. We do have Pest control that comes regularly, however it is the tropics, bugs do exist, we keep bugs out by keeping the condo clean and having Ocean Pest Control come regularly. With regards to the pictures, I had the condo photographed literally two weeks ago. I'm not sure how to respond to that portion of your review.
I'd love to have you back so we could perhaps show you a different experience, however I'm not sure based on your review, how we could live up to your expectations.
Stay before and after sail
This condo was absolutely perfect for our group. Having 3 bedrooms and 3 baths was perfect for the 3 couples. The kitchen was perfectly appointed with everything we needed to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner. We used the grill twice and appreciated having access to the grill. The property was very clean and easy to find from the airport. Being so close to Red Hook and the grocery store was perfect. The beach was beautiful with shade trees for those of us that can’t stay in the sun too long. The pool was also a nice option for our group. Working with John, the property owner, was a breeze. He was very accommodating to an early check in on our return from our sail and was very, very prompt in responding to our requests. We all committed that we would definitely stay at this property again in the future.
The condo had everything we needed and we couldnt have asked for a better view. We had a few minor setbacks with the tv in the master bedroom and one if the rokus in one of the bedrooms, but nothing that was detrimental. There was sand toys which was a nice surprise. There is a restaurant on the beach within walking distance. We rented the SUV which was the best decision because taxi rides are very expensive. The beach was super close and easy to access. We wished we would have brought water shoes. Our 7 year old stepped on a sea urchin at the beach. We didnt know to look for those, but after talking with a couple grounds keepers, they said usually the urchins are on the rocks and not where people swim. I guess she found a stray one. Luckily, we found vinegar in the condo and soaked her foot. Aside from that, we had an excellent stay and would definitely choose to stay here again.
Thanks for the glowing review. Glad we had vinegar!
awesome relaxing time
really glad we rented the car too
Best Trip Ever
Can't say enough. The amenities were excellent. Very clean with very nice linens. The space was perfect for our 6 guests with 3 rooms and 2 balconies. The view is excellent, just high enough to see over the trees on the beach. It's a 1 minute walk to the beach, Pool, and the restaurant. We took advantage of eating in twice and found everything we needed plus a over-sized grill to use. We also took advantage of the rental car. It was ready to go full of fuel and very convenient. The location of the condo is about 5 minutes from everything we needed. The marina, redhook, restaurants, bars, shopping, and a couple grocery stores . Overall we had an excellent time and were very impressed with how easy everything was. John has making you feel like family figured out! Don't hesitate to take him up on enjoying his little piece of paradise. Hope to be back soon.
