  • Cowpet Bay West Condo

    "We loved our stay in Carla's beautiful condo. The beds were super comfortable and the furnishings were great. Loved the architectural details of the building with the arched doors and the big solid bedroom doors. The balcony was super big with the best view. We had a wonderful dinner on the balcony one evening. Did not get to use the bbq grill but would have loved to grill out if we had the time. Marcella the housekeeper was very friendly and accomodating as well. The restaurants in the complex were awesome. The grocery store in Redhook had everything you could want probably twice the cost of the US though. There was another food store west on 32 heading to the airport that I heard was less expensive. The grounds were beautiful the only drawback is they don't have privileges to the pool at the Elysian although our sister was staying there so we piggybacked into the pool with her key. Great pool bar and the bartender David was very informative. The ferry to St John was convenient and well worth the price to visit the island. We took the car ferry and the only caveat is returning you may have to wait since the ferry gets busy at around 4 pm. Would highly recommend Carla's condo and she was very responsive by email if we had any questions, we would love to return if we have the opportunity."

  • Paradise on St. Thomas!

    "We are a family of 4 who stayed at Beachtops for 5 nights. This place is wonderful! It is technically a 3 bedroom unit, but we only used 2 of the bedrooms and closed off the upstairs bedroom, and she prices depending on how many bedrooms will be needed. This unit had everything we needed, was very clean and nicely furnished, and the owner was wonderful to deal with. There are plenty of bath and beach towels. There is a washer and dryer, a dishwasher, and a grill on the porch (electric). There is also an area to eat and relax out on the porch, as well as plenty of room to hang towels and wet bathing suits at the end of the day. There is also snorkel gear, although 2 of the masks had broken straps (which I forgot to mention to June) but we made one of them work for one of the kids, floats, beach chairs and coolers/ice packs. The views from this unit overlooking Cowpet Bay are beautiful, and it is literally less than a 1 minute walk to the beach. You also have rights to the pool at the Elysian, which is the property right next door, and the pool is probably a 2 minute walk from this unit. The pool is very nice, big and has a hot tub and beach bar for the adults, and my kids loved the iguana that lives there! There are also 2 restaurants on the property. Cowpet Bay is about a 5 minute drive from Red Hook where there are more restaurants, shops, and a grocery store. Red Hook is also where you can catch the ferry over to St. John (but the parking lot fills up quickly in the morning so you may need to park across the street). This condo is a 10 min drive to Coki Beach or Lindquist Beach, about 30 min to Magens Bay, about 30 min to the Ziplines, and about 30 min to Charlotte Amalie. We did have a car which was very convenient, but you certainly don't need one if you want to just relax on the property or walk over to the Ritz. Overall, this place was great. June was lovely, very helpful in making recommendations for restaurants, stores, etc., and she even brought us a plant from a tree in her yard that blooms every night at 7:07. It wasn't much to look at before it blooms, sort of looks like a ripe banana, but watching it bloom and the flower that emerges is amazing! It was sweet of her to share that with us:) I would recommend this condo to anyone coming to St. Thomas, it was great for our family, but would work for 2 or 3 couples as well."

  • Incredible Location

    "My family just returned from St. Thomas for the first time and we can't wait to go back. We stayed at Cowpet West and the location was incredible. We were steps from the beach with a pool, hot tub, several restaurants/bars. The Ritz was a 5 min walk where we enjoyed their delicious restaurants as well. I recommend a car. Glenn was fantastic with communication/information for our stay. Very professional. A cleaner came to clean our villa mid week which was very nice. Wonderful thing is Glenn has multiple Villas so you can choose depending on your budget. My budget was a little tight so my villa was a little dated but very clean and adequate. Great AC, TV's, plenty of beach towels, beach toys, snorkel gear. I'd definitely recommend booking with VIP Rentals."

  • Great Owner and property is ideal for a quiet vacay!

    "My 12 year old grand sailed in a regatta at the St Thomas Yacht Club that is just paces from the pool at the Anchorage. I asked her to comment on the condo and she said, "pretty" and "Amazing!" The view is spectacular from this 3rd floor unit and the condo is large with 3 bedrooms. The furnishings are just fine for a beach place and they are cute. The large porch is perfect for reading, watching the sailing and just being quiet. 12 days without car noise, pollution, and all of the hurried confusion of a city in this quiet place was terrific, clean, lots of towels (beach and bath), games, books to read, great TV and Cable (a must when you have kids). New front loading W/D and good dishwasher were a plus and it is located within a mile of Red Hook and great pizza and home made ice cream! The tennis courts are in great shape and there is a gym as well. We had a car (very cheap through Thrifty) and used it to go to St. John for a day trip and many trips to Red Hook for casual suppers, shopping for groceries and sun tan spray at Moes. Made one trip to KMart. Picked up friends at the airport. Tiny island really and while the distance is short the windy roads and slower traffic made for a 40 min drive to the airport. About the owner: Don Norkus is without a doubt the nicest and most patient owner ever. We had a zillion questions and an a/c issue and he was right on top of all that was going on. After the A/C issue was fixed, he treated us to a fancy dinner at the nicest place about 5 min away from the condo.I would definitely want to rent his unit again. About the APP: Definitely a great way to communicate and have all information you need at your fingertips (WiFi passwords, contacts, recommendations for restuarants, etc)."
