SPECTACULAR VIEWS AT ELYSIAN BEACH RESORT

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in East End - Elysian Beach Resort

Condominium, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 7)

See the spectacular views from our top floor 1,700 sq. ft. three bedroom, four full bath, non-smoking condominium at the Wyndham's Elysian Beach Resort overlooking beautiful Cowpet Bay (also see our two bedroom condo, VRBO #146165 or HomeAway #248171, at the same resort). Our top floor condo has all the features that you would want in a vacation condo as we stay there several weeks per year. The living area has a sectional sofa, a 42-inch TV, a DVD/CD player/stereo with iPod player and wireless internet service. It has a covered balcony with table, chairs, and Weber electric BBQ grill. The dining area has a table that seats six. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances (refrigerator, oven/cooktop, dishwasher, microwave), granite countertop, and an eating bar with three chairs.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor, both with a king beds and one has an additional single bed. The third bedroom is in a loft setting with a king bed. Also available is a port-a-crib. All three bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, individual quiet split air conditioning units, ceiling fans, large TVs with DVD players, dressers, and closets. Each bedroom has a private bath with two sinks (one in loft) and shower. The fourth bathroom has a combination tub/shower. All have private balconies with great views of Cowpet Bay and nearby islands. The loft deck is over-sized (12'x18') and is perfect for enjoying the views, socializing, sunbathing and star gazing.

It only takes 3 to 4 minutes to walk to the beautiful palm tree lined beach where there are complimentary beach and lounge chairs. Here you can bask in the sun or lay in the shade of a palm or seagrape tree. We even have a complimentary beach towel service. The beach has a large protected swimming area and an area where you can snorkel. Next to the beach is a large beautifully landscaped pool with hot tub. There is also a beach bar and two great restaurants, Caribbean Fish Market, serving lunch and dinner and Sangria's serving breakfast, and sandwiches and pizza for lunch and dinner. On site we have a tennis court, exercise room (fee), Health/Beauty/Massage Spa (fee) and water-sport rentals (fee). The water sport hut personnel can arrange boating excursions for you.

In the nearby town of Red Hook, you can take a ferry to St. John and the British Virgin Islands (passport required). The town has a dozen restaurants, a grocery store, gift and specialty shops, and a large marina. All of this is within a mile and a half of our condominium.

About Rick & Susan Taylor

Susan and Rick Taylor live in Wilmington DE, where they were born and raised. We also lived in Tulsa OK for 15 years. We have three married daughters and each of them gave us a grandchild in 2008, one in 2010 and two more in July 2011.

Rick & Susan Taylor purchased this condo in 2005

Why Rick & Susan Taylor chose East End

We spent our 30th wedding anniversary with our family in St. Thomas and fell in love with the island. After visiting many other islands, we returned a year later looking for real estate. We stayed at the Elysian and realized the location on island, beach, facilities, and condos couldn't be beat. The rest is history.

What makes this condo unique

The property is very well maintain. On site there are two great restaurants, a beautiful uncrowded palm tree lined beach, a large swimming pool with hot tub and pool bar, a tennis court, an exercise facility (fee), a beauty/health/massage spa (fee), and a sports equipment rental hut.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome vacation, great choice on this condo, worked out perfectly, and enjoyed the beautiful view. Nothing crowded on any of the islands.Learning to drive on the left was fun. The car ferry ride to St John was worth it. Snorkeled at two great places, Trunk Bay and Haulover Bay.Did the jet skis at Sapphire and Double Header fishing trip, caught yellowtail snapper, mackerel and Roberts Grill cooked it for us.Had a wonderful trip with Break Away to Virgin Gorda, Marina Cay, Diamond Reef, and Jost Van Dyke’s Soggy Dollar Bar.On our rainy day we got in some tennis, snorkeled at Sapphire, not good visibility but cloudy day and then drove the island to Magen’s Bay.Food was all good! East End upscale, Halian was good, Iggy’s all you can eat crab night was so good! Delicious! Visited Duffy’s afterward for drinks and dancing. Celebrated a birthday at Room With A View, nice place!! Senor Pizza was good for a casual night, no atmosphere but decent pizza.Enjoyed tennis!! and tennis channel. Our last day was spent snorkeling at Coki Beach and Karaoke at Iggy’s, too fun!Now back to reality – Ugh! Thanks for a great time!

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 out of 5
I have rented many vacation homes through VRBO in many different locations and I have to say this was not only one of the nicest homes in one of the most beautiful locations, but also the best experience in terms of making arrangements with the homeowner. Richard was so organized and made everything so easy for us! The home itself is actually even nicer in person than it is in the pictures! We were a party of 5 (family of 4 plus my mother in law) and we easily had more than enough room. The kids absolutely loved the upstairs loft and private rooftop deck and I liked that all of the sleeping areas were separate from one another and they all had their own private balcony with fantastic views. The location of the condo is excellent- it is just a 4 or 5 minute drive from Red Hook with its fun restaurants and the ferry to the other islands. The kids enjoyed the Elysian Resort pool and found the staff around the pool and on-site restaurants to be extremely friendly. The grocery store was about 10 minutes from the condo. Our favorite activities on our trip were: visiting St John (Trunk Bay is spectacular and should not be missed), taking a catamaran to swim with sea turtles (we arranged through the Bolongo Bay Beach resort), shopping in Cruz Bay on St John and exploring different beaches on St Thomas(Magens Bay lived up to its reputation but we also liked Sapphire Beach and Coki for the great snorkeling). If we ever go again, we will take the time to venture to Virgin Gorda for The Baths. This was a wonderful vacation and everyone on the island was so friendly!! Thanks Richard for making your wonderful condo our home away from home!

Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
My 50th Birthday with my family was Paradise. The condo was awesome. Everything you could imagine and more. Pool, beach, hot tub, restaurants. I wish I had brought binoculars because there is so much to see and explore. Taking the Ferry to St. John and renting a dingy from Noah's little Arks was a favorite. We stopped along the different beaches and had a wonderful day. Trunk Bay Beach was the favorite. A stingray swam by while I was snorkeling. For an affordable delicious lunch or dinner I recommend The Grill at Mahogany Run Golf Course.

Wonderful Condo - Great resort

  • 5 out of 5
THANK YOU!

We just returned from an amazing trip in at this condo. The condo was accurately pictured and even better in person.

The views were amazing from all decks, especially from the top floor! The kitchen was very well equipped with anything you need to make meals at home, which we do quite a bit in order to save money on eating out so we can spend it on all the activities we want to do while there. The bedrooms are all large and have large private baths. By having separate ac units in all rooms, including the living room, we could cool the house quickly, but still turn off the units when we were out and about. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was wonderful, especially due to traveling with an infant!

If traveling with small children, there is a pack and play as well as a small crib and a child seat for feeding (that was a nice surprise!) including sheets and small blankets. You can tell that their grandchildren really do/did stay there.

The beach was great and had plenty of amenities for all family members. The pool was nice. We would rather hang out on the beach but did spend some time with the baby in the pool as well. Both areas had plenty of seating/loungers. Should you like snorkeling and don't want to go on an excursion, it was pretty good right off of the Elysian beach. Nice size reef and rock formation that allowed for plenty of viewing.

Great onsite restaurants as well as water sport hut for any water tours. All employees we had contact with were courteous as were the residents we met while there.

If you are not familiar with St. Thomas, all of the steps leading around the property may be a bit of a shock, but that is just St. Thomas. We managed just fine getting all of our belonging and 1 year old down to the beach/pool area; however we expected the steps and are fairly used to that environment. We did see several other individuals taking advantage of the golf carts driven by employees should you not want/able to deal with the steps.

We would always recommend renting a car if you are wanting to sightsee a lot while there as taxi's are a bit expensive if using them everyday. The roads are very narrow and you do drive on the other side of the road, so if that makes you uncomfortable, you may want to take taxi's or the sightseeing shuttles.

We would 100% return to this property and can't wait to plan our next trip.

One of our best trips ever

  • 5 out of 5
What a place! We just got back from a week long trip and had a wonderful time. Rick & Sue are such helpful hosts with many great suggestions for dining and activities. We took a Breakaway Charter to the British Virgin Islands that they suggested and it was the highlight of our trip. Their place is just beautiful with spectacular views. I can't say enough about the whole experience. I will definitely return!!

Perfect St Thomas vacation condo

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week at this St Thomas condo and it was perfect for us in just about every way. Firstly, Rick and Susan have the rental process completely figured out - everything from our last minute reservation, provision of detailed instructions, offers of help, and prepaid envelope to return the keys was seemless. The condo itself had convenient parking and was certainly plenty spacious enough for our family (2 adults, 2 young kids, nanny) and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay (all the usual amenities and many more - our final 'test' was to check if there was an oven thermometer for our roast chicken - never seen one in a rental before, but there was one here!). The location is also ideal - close to the small town of Red Hook (with a few nice restaurants, coffee shop, ice cream parlors, grocery store) and with easy access to the ferry to island hop if you are so inclined. It's also a short drive to Coral World which is great for a morning, and it's easy enough to get anywhere else on the island from here. But best of all was the resort itself - be aware that there are a number of steps (50 / 60 ?) from the condo down to the center of the resort (tricky for us with young kids, but manageable), but once there you will find a couple of great restaurants, an excellent pool / lounging area and the most perfect beach for people who want to just relax by / in the water and soak up the sun (and in our case watch the kids play). Magens Bay beach was certainly nice, but super-crowded and in our opinion there was no real need to leave the beach and pool at the resort. We're so glad we stumbled across this vacation condo, and it comes highly recommended!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 out of 5
It is hard to find something different to say than all of the other reviews, but there is a reason that everyone gives this property and its owners, Rick and Susan 5 stars. The apartment is gorgeous and spacious with magnificent views! We were a party of six, and the apartment is so big that we never felt that we were on top of each other. No one had to wait for a bathroom, a shower, a tv, or a balcony! With every room having its own balcony it was so easy for those of us who liked to stay up late to sit outside and talk without disturbing the others. The apartment has everything you need and then some. We did not want to leave! We loved the place and loved both St. Thomas and St. John! The apartment is in a perfect location for getting around and we will definitely stay in this condo again. Thank you for a great vacation Rick and Susan!
