Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in East End

2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 5.

Enjoy our beautifully renovated, top floor, 1,300 sq. ft. two bedroom, three full bath, non-smoking condominium at the Wyndham Elysian Beach Resort overlooking beautiful Cowpet Bay (also see our three bedroom, VRBO #76523 or HomeAway #248170, at the same resort). This 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, chaise lounge and Weber electric BBQ grill. The dining area has a table that seats six. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances (refrigertor, oven/cooktop, dishwasher, microwave), granite countertop, and an eating bar with four chairs.

There is one bedroom on the main floor with a king bed. The second bedroom is in a loft setting with a king bed and a twin bed in an adjoining alcove. Also available is a Pak-N-Play. The bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, individual quiet split air conditioning units, ceiling fans, 32' TV’s with DVD players, dressers and closets. Each bedroom has a private bath with sink (two sinks in master) and combination tub/shower. Both have private balconies with views of Cowpet Bay. The loft balcony is over-sized (14’x20’) and is perfect for enjoying the views, socializing, sunbathing and star gazing.

It only takes 2 to 3 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 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 2007

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

What a glorious place! The condo is wonderful and so nicely decorated and equipped. Our family enjoyed all of the island! Snorkeling was wonderful on St Thomas and St John. We hope to return again. Thanks so much! A honeymoon with the children.

Susan

  • 5 out of 5
For our thirtieth anniversary, we wanted to go back to St. Thomas with our college-aged children. Rick & Susan's condo was perfect for our family. The kids spread out upstairs and we had our space downstairs. The condo is well-equipped with more than basic necessities, well maintained and very comfortable. The information on grocery stores, activities, restaurants and the like was detailed, informative, practical and helpful. We enjoyed kayaking, snorkeling, zip lining, hiking and discovering private beaches. The upper deck was also a nice retreat. It was semi-private and offered views of the bay and nighttime sky. What memories we made!! Perfect location for a perfect vacation! Thanks for making it available. We're ready to go back.

Condo with Everything

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent Condo-So much room and privacy, clean, stocked, convenient. I have rented many units and this unit was perfect. The kitchen was clean, organized, stocked, and not overstocked with useless things. The resort was perfect, restaurants right at the water's edge; grounds were well-maintained, front desk was helpful. This is a perfect find. Thank you Rick!

A Perfect Fit for Us

  • 5 out of 5
Everything positive you have read in other reviews about this property and Rick and Susan, is true! We selected this property for our family of four, with two adult children ages 19 and 25 initially because of the advertised accommodations. Rick and Susan provided in writing detailed information about so many of the important aspects needed to help us feel secure in our decision to visit St. Thomas and to make the vacation work so well. The place is roomy enough for all to have their own space and private time after a long day at the beach or experiencing all the island has to offer. We were able to save quite a bit of money making breakfasts and lunches in the completely equipped updated, open and spacious kitchen. One bit of advice I would provide is that you get to this condo before heading to the grocery store as it really is equipped with so much of what you will need to feel like you have all the comforts of home. Having separate balconies in several locations was also a huge plus. The views were wonderful especially at night where we had an unobstructed view of the sky from the top balcony! We rented a car and were very glad that we did as it allowed us to explore the island, visit Charlotte Amalie, Mountain View for spectacular views of the island, snorkel at Cokie Beach (get there early), take the ferry to St. John's (take the earliest ferry!), dine in Red Hook and shop for food and snacks as necessary. It was great to have two restaurants on premises. Our kids opted for the more casual Sangria's one night, while we dined steps away in the upscale Caribbean Fish Market. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the ambiance and the fact that it was in walking distance. At night we watched movies from the condo's collection which included comedies and thrillers. Never heard anyone say they were bored!!! A huge plus when travelling with kids!! Lastly, the gym was under construction, but we managed to take a very nice 50 minute walk almost every day travelling two times around between our complex through the Cowpet Bay West complex and the St. Thomas Yacht Club. Thank you Rick and Susan for all of your input and helping to make this a memorable vacation for my whole family.

Perfect Condo for a perfect vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you Rick and Susan for letting us stay in your beautiful condo. We had a wonderful time! The condo was just perfect. It had everything you needed. The beach was very nice. Sangria's restaurant was delicious. My girls loved the smoothies! The mixed drinks were very yummy too! All just steps from the beach! The swimming pool was great! Had a blast watching all the iguanas! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a nice, clean place to stay. The resort was kept very clean. It was a very relaxing vacation. Hated to leave! Thanks again for everything!

Another fantastic vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
We recently spent a week at Rick & Susan's condo and once again, it was a fabulous vacation with great weather! This is the third time we have stayed here and already are planning on returning next year. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone.....it is equipped with everything you could possibly need and is always impeccably clean. Our bed was so comfortable that I had to email Rick to find out what kind it was! The Elysian is a great spot - quiet little bay with sun & shade, no cruise ship visitors and plenty of chairs. Red Hook is just down the street where you can catch a ferry to anywhere. This year we booked a trip with The Bad Kitty and visited Virgin Gorda, Cooper Island, Norman Island and ended the day at Jost at the Soggy Dollar - highly recommend that trip....that boat can really move! Best part was coming back to the condo at the end of every day....can't wait to return! Thanks Rick & Susan!

Fun in the sun!!

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a week long vacation in St. Thomas at Rick and Susan's condo. Let me first start by saying that the condo is beautiful! It is very clean and well equipped! All the pots and pans are in perfect condition, there is everything you need to make a full meal - a good way to save some money, we ate breakfast in the condo every morning and made lunch (which we packed in the cooler they have in the closet to take with us on our daily excursions!). We decided to make dinner a couple of nights as well! We enjoyed eating out on the balcony and having our morning coffee out there! My two college aged kids loved the bedroom loft area and their own patio area, where they hung out almost every night when my husband and I went to bed! The area, we thought was the best on the island, we rented a jeep and went all over, exploring all the beaches and the views from the top of the mountains...beautiful!! Red Hook area was fun with lots of restaurants and places to get a cocktail but we really loved going back to the "east end" and it turned out that one of our favorite places (that Rick suggested to us)was close by the condo called Latitude 18...it was so much fun, a little hard to find at first but totally worth it! The food was good and the entertainment was VERY entertaining!!!
We heard a lot of mixed reviews about St. Thomas but it turned out to be one of favorite places to go, just avoid the downtown area when there are a lot of cruise ships in town, there are so many other places to go anyway!...we all agreed we would definitely go back there and hopefully be able to rent Susan and Ricks condo again!! Thanks so much Susan and Rick our family really loved it!
