This updated condo has luxurious bedding, tasteful decor, and comfortable deck furniture so that you can luxuriate in the tropical breeze that flows through the unit and enjoy the breathtaking views from the balcony. At the request of my guests I have added a grill on the balcony. Bolongo Bay is on the south side of ST. Thomas. It is about 20 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from Havensight (cruise ship doc) and 10 minutes from Red Hook where you catch the ferry to the BVI and ST. John. No need to ever leave Bolongo Bay. 3 excellent restaurants. Iggies's bar and grill for late night entertainment. Bolongo Bay resort for beach chairs, fine dining and water toys to rent. Day and sunset sails available aboard Heavenly Days. A dive shop and our own beautiful pool. Anything else you might want or need?
Oh I forgot, pet iguanas to watch off the balcony for those of us that miss our pets on vacation.

About Karen Smith
Recently retired after 25 years in Real Estate in Atlanta, Georgia. I was born and raised in upstate New York. Moved to Atlanta in 1977 to get warm. Not warm enough and oh, no ocean. I now reside half in Atlanta and half in St Thomas. Friends and family keep me in Atlanta but my heart takes me to Bolongo Bay.
Karen Smith purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Karen Smith chose Estate Bolongo
I bought this property the minute I walked on the balcony. My dream has always been to lie in bed and hear the waves. I found it. Morning sunrise, coffee on the balcony, morning swim in the pool, snorkeling in Bolongo Bay. Dinner on the beach. No more needed. This is the life.
What makes this Condo unique
We are the only property on St Thomas where the balcony hangs over the Carribbean. You can view Bolongo Bay and the mountains from the balcony. Building this close to the water is no longer allowed but after surviving Hugo, Marilyn, Irma and Maria we are secure and safe in our piece of paradise. Beware this does not inspire you to get out and explore. It is hard to leave the balcony.

I have stayed at several condos at Watergate previously , this experience was not quite the same .
Condo needs to be updated and also needs a deep cleaning . I was disappointed overall in the appearance and upkeep of this condo . Had to bleach down bathrooms and wash sheets on beds before we used them . Also kitchen was not very sanitary .
Thank you so much for your input. I was forced to try a new Cleaning crew. They have been replaced. Also thanks for leaving my home so clean.
Normally we do all-inclusive resorts.... so this was a new experience...we loved it... the only thing we would do different is we would’ve rented a car... we spent a lot of time in taxis...but also met an awesome man...Bill with VI taxi service...he was amazing..always early and a very kind man! He also has great stories to tell about his life...very interesting! We met nice people ..and Watergate Villas has great neighbors! We will definitely do this again...we missed Iggies....but it’s coming back and we’ll be back to enjoy it!
Location location, perfect spot
This property was in the center of everything, it was well equipped with everything needed for a family vacation,, steps away from bolongo bay beach and resort and the famous Iggie's beach bar , not to mention we were steps away from mim's onsite restaurant, would totally recommend,
Paradise in paradise
We stayed 10 days in Karen's condo on Bolongo Bay and what a great stay we had! You are maybe 30 feet away from the ocean and the deck outside which spans the width of the condo was our go to place in the mornings and evenings watching and listening to the ocean.The condo is centrally located to really get anywhere on the island in 20 minutes and it is a couple minutes walk to two great places to eat and drink (Iggies and Mim's) and a highly recommended scuba diving shop (St. Thomas Diving Club). We had one small issue with the toilets not flushing and the same day Karen had the management team at the condo's in to get them back up and working.
The kitchen is very well outfitted with anything you would need and the blender came in very useful for making frozen drinks. The Wi-Fi was also much appreciated by my two teenage daughters which worked fairly well (one or two restarts during our stay) compared to what I was expecting.
I would highly recommend anyone to stay at Karen's condo and hopefully we will be able to get back in the future. For location, amenities and price you can't beat this property! Thanks Karen for making our vacation one to remember.

Perfect location with great amenities!
This was my 3rd time to St Thomas and I wish I knew about this place sooner! It was close to town and had a pool and beach onsite. The owner, Karen, was welcoming and extremely helpful with making our stay pleasant. Absolutely loved it!
Perfect guests. Fun, adventurous, clean, and neat. Please come again.
