Graduation trip for son and girlfriend
Planned this trip rather hastily as grad gift for son and girlfriend from college. Ended up being amazing family trip for both sons and their girlfriends. Rather new to home rental, but felt would be more enjoyable than 3 hotel rooms. Best decision! Home was perfect for all involved with own personal space but nice kitchen, living room and decks. Great location with beautiful bay with very good snorkel, good food and drinks and easy access to Red Hook for food/drinks and ferry to St. Johns. Loved the extras of beach chairs, ice chest, extra masks/snorkels and even some bug spray and sunscreen available. Felt like our own home and Amy was present with unit immaculate when we arrived and communicated regularly with information and any needed updates. Would definitely recommend w/o hesitation.
Thanks for the review and recommendation Brian! It was a pleasure meeting you all and hosting your family vacation! We are so glad to hear your stay at Beachside Escape, with its great views and convenient location, was amazing!
St Thomas Escape
My husband and our three teen children stayed at this lovely condo for a week. We were very comfortable. Everything we needed was at the condo. We have visited several times before and stayed at other east end locations but I will stay here whenever I return. The garden entrance is beautiful, the property is gated, and the parking is right up the path from the condo. The beach is a few steps away. There are chairs and hammocks available and the beach is not crowded. Two restaurants are on the property. The pool and hot tub and also a short walk away.
The balcony was wonderful. It is large enough for all five of us to enjoy dinner and the stars on. The seating is comfortable.
The unit has plenty of room for your party to spread out. The beds are comfortable. Upstairs bedroom has a private balcony. There is a full size washer, dryer, and even detergent. Plenty of beach towels, chairs, coolers, snorkel masks, bags and noodles. The kitchen has everything to prepare meals and a full size dishwasher. The unit is directly on the beach. The WIfi worked our entire trip and the power never went out due to the generator. We stayed a few days without a car and had everything we needed but we were glad to have a rental for the rest of the trip to explore the island in.
Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review Kelly! It was a joy to host your family and we are so happy to hear you thoroughly enjoyed this fully-equipped condo! The location is definitely ideal... so close to the beach and other amenities. We hope you return again some day!
Very nice property ! Caribbean Fish Market and Sangria's are very convenient.
Property well maintained and stocked with all the tools & equipment you would ever need
on vacation. The TV down stairs is very difficult to use: connecting to cable, find channel
3, hold selector pointing down, push guild repeatedly. I used up stairs TV to view Fox News
in morning only, easy to use.
We are glad you enjoyed all this condo and resort have to offer! The restaurants on site are a big plus! I am sorry to hear you had trouble navigating the main TV, even after our conversation with my instructions. I always have the TV on a cable music station for guests' arrival to try to eliminate any confusion from the start, but I will be sure to leave printed instructions for future guests for easier use. Thank you for the feedback!
Beautiful condo, great space and condition, wonderful views!!
My family was very satisfied with the condition, amenities, and views of this condo. We enjoyed our visit and will consider it again when we come back to St.Thomas!
Thanks Sue! We are glad you enjoyed the condo and all its amenities! We would love to have you back again some day!
Perfect home base
Amy's property was the perfect place for my recent stay in St. Thomas. I was there for work and really enjoyed all the comforts of home that came with Amy's well-appointed condo. All of the little things were provided which made making meals quick and easy. She really thinks of everything, from bug spray to laundry detergent. The setting is gorgeous, secluded and with two restaurants and a pool bar on the property, it has everything you need. When my co-workers and I got a break and some time off, we took full advantage of Cowpet and all of its amenities and couldn't have been happier. Would most definitely book again. Thanks, Amy!
Thanks Anthony! It was a pleasure hosting you all and I am so glad the condo was accommodating during your work project. The owners and myself ensure we think of everything you could possibly need for a wonderful stay at Beachside Escape!! I love Cowpet and all the amenities just steps from your door! We hope you all stay with us again for future work trips!
The villa and Amy were amazing! The views of Cowpet Bay were gorgeous and we all enjoyed having our morning coffee or afternoon happy hour from the balconies. The condo was the perfect size for our two families: 4 adults, 3 teenagers, and an 8 year old. Amy was incredible and helped us book two water excursions that were truly our favorite days during our stay. The kitchen was fully equipped with what we needed. I especially liked that the condo came with all the "extras" - beach chairs, towels, a cooler, noodles, snorkeling gear, and sand toys. Also any items that previous guests have left behind are there for the next guest to use (sunscreen, bug spray, sugar, coffee, etc). This was particularly useful when we ran out of sunscreen! The beach is just a short walk away and my little one loved swimming at the pool and watching the iguanas. My husband and 8 year old snorkled along the rocks of the bay the morning that we were leaving and saw a ton of fish and even a spotted eagle ray. If we should happen to return to St Thomas, we will definitely stay here again.
It was a pleasure meeting you Jenn and helping you plan a spectacular vacation!! I am happy to hear that you all enjoyed the condo so much and it's amazing views! It indeed is fully equipped with everything you need for a fun beach vacation! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review! We would love to host you again in the future at the delightful Beachside Escape!
