GREAT DEAL FOR A SUMMER VACAY: ELYSIAN-$200 OFF AVAILABLE WEEKS IN MAY & JUNE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in East End - Elysian Beach Resort

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

New to VRBO, enjoyed primarily by family and friends, we invite you to experience our little piece of paradise!

Welcome to the Caribbean and thank you for taking the time to discover the beauty of St Thomas. Upon arrival at the Elysian Beach Resort, one will be delighted with the extensive use of flora and fauna that wraps around the soft pink exterior of this island architecture. Our well maintained, NON-SMOKING unit is located on the 3rd floor with 2 flights of stairs (1 down, with 8 steps and 1 up, 8 steps). Once inside you will find a causal space decorated in classic blue and white, local art and bamboo furniture that inspire an island lifestyle. Our condo has 2 bedrooms, 3 baths, a fully equipped kitchen (small appliances and quality cookware) and 3 private balconies. The master suite has a king four poster bamboo bed dressed with quality designer quilts, vanity and bench, flat screen TV, private dressing area and bath with ceramic tub/shower combo. The guest bedroom features 2 double beds dressed with designer quilts, vanity and beach, flat screen TV, private dressing area and bath with a ceramic tub/shower combo. The center of the condo contains the fully equipped kitchen and dining area with table and breakfast bar. The living room has a flat screen TV, iPod dock, bookcase with interesting beach reads, and a queen size Murphy bed that can be easily stowed away with little effort. The seating is comfy, with cushioned rattan chairs and a Braxton Culler seagrass sofa that helps create an easy laid- back feeling. For added convenience, a third bathroom is located off the hall with a dressing area and bath with a ceramic tub/shower combo. Each room has its own AC unit and ceiling fans with ocean views. This tiled condo is perfect for 3 couples or 2 small families because privacy can be created between rooms via lock out doors.

For a truly one of a kind island adventure check out our 44'Catamaran listing #418958 and combine it with this condo.

The Wyndham Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay consists of 180 units which house a lively community of island residents, second home owners, world wide vacationers and a limited number of timeshare occupants. The majority of units are privately owned; therefore decor is a reflection of the owners taste. The resort is neighbored by the St Thomas Yacht Club that hosts the famed Rolex Regatta each year and the Ritz Carlton. As a guest you will have access to our beautiful white sand beach scattered with sea grape and palm trees while enjoying the comfort of complimentary chairs and loungers. Cowpet beach has a large protected swim area that's also great for snorkeling. A short walk from the beach (2 min) and you will find a beautifully landscaped pool and Jacuzzi with chairs, umbrellas and a bar that serves frozen concoctions and spirits. This is a resort with restaurants, micro-spa for hair and nails and water sports without having to pay for all the extras that a full service resort would charge. If you are looking for a spa experience then a short walk to the Ritz next door will suffice.

Located on the popular east end of the island, the Elysian is less than 2 miles from Red Hook. This village town is known for its easy access to other islands via the ferry terminal and large marina. Red Hook also has several restaurants, bars, shops and two markets for food and island essentials.

The Elysian is located on the popular east end of the island and 30-40 min. from airport.

Car rentals are very popular and cheaper than taxis but drivers must remember to 'keep left' when driving.

Keywords: Oceanfront condo resort in St Thomas with beautiful views in a casual island retreat. This is a perfect property for families, couples and friend getaways for an island vacation.

Well traveled couple that loves art, history, architecture and the beach. We love traveling throughout the US, Mexico, Europe and the Caribbean. We like unique lodging experiences and getting to know the local population of an area. We reside by the ocean in Myrtle Beach where we own a small vacation rental company. St Thomas is our second home and a place we can relax and enjoy reconnecting with friends in a casual uncomplicated setting.

Betsy Hinson purchased this condo in 2001

I visited St Thomas for the first time in the early 90's and stayed at the Elysian a year after it was completed. Much to my surprise in 2001, while on vacation we discovered that a few condos were available for sell and we jumped at the chance! Today, we visit several times a year and have an annual retreat with family and friends.

My favorite place to read a book is on our beach! Island hopping and days filled with sailing! Enjoy coffee at sunrise and a glass of wine at sunset, perfection!

Our stay at the Elysian

We had a wonderful time in St Thomas and enjoyed this condo at the Elysian. The accommodations couldn't have been nicer. We enjoyed the tennis courts (they provide the rackets and balls), the pool--along with the friendly Iguana, watching the Super Bowl at the ocean side bar and grill and lounging by the sea. This condo is the best deal for your money. They steps were no problem and we were told if we wanted a ride around the complex, they would sent a golf cart anytime to assist us. We would love to visit once a year...but we'll see about that...:)
Owner's Response: Thank you Linda for the kind review, we appreciate you taking the time to give such a descriptive review. We look forward to your return visit.

What a grand trip we had to St. Thomas, which is surely an island paradise! And I feel sure there is not a better place to stay than at Betsy and Keith's beautiful and spacious condo, which feels more like home than a hotel room. Beds in the 2 bedrooms are extremely comfy with lovely furnishings and the 3 bathrooms are a real plus. Middle room with full, well equipped kitchen became our place to hang and chat about the days activities. So much to do and see here and the location on the East End was ideal. The inspiring view from the 3 balconies made it a great spot for sipping morning coffee and planning our day. The condo was immaculate and well maintained as was the whole property. The 3 of us (age 55+) loved sitting on the beach basking in the wonderful island breezes, whether sunning or just enjoying the shade of the palm trees. Enjoyed swimming in the crystal clear water at the beach as well as in the picturesque pool complete with waterfall.

Betsy and Keith's recommendations for places to eat and enjoy island cocktails were spot on, and we had a wonderful birthday celebration at the exquisite HAVANA BLUE, with its spectacular sunset! Particularly loved the XO BISTRO in Red Hook which we would not have found by ourselves as it is in a strip shopping center and doesn't look like much from the outside. Renting a car was great although a bit scary as they drive on the left but my husband proved up to the task so we were able to enjoy the entire island. And Captain Toby took us for the boat ride of our lives to enjoy all the scenery of the islands, particularly St. John. What a glorious and relaxing week we spent here; we eagerly await the opportunity to return!

Great family vacation

The condo was exactly as described- great and newly redcorated!. We had our twin 7 year old daughters and our 20 something daughters. They all shared the second bedroom with the double beds. With 3 full bathrooms in the condo, showering was never a problem. The beach was great. The 7 year olds LOVED the pool. The 20 year olds loved the pool bar :) My husband loved the snorkeling right there off the beach. I enjoyed the beach chairs in the shade. We rented a car- he was able to "stay left" and became comfortable driving but scared ALL OF US! Red Hook is right around the corner. We went out to eat there several times. We really liked IGGY's on the beach at Bolongo bay. We also took the car ferry to St Johns for the day. Skinny Legs was a nice(local) place to each. If you can stomach the drive. The New Horizon sailing adventure was everyone's favorite. 10-4pm Great Lunch!- fun snorkeling. We saw turtles, sting rays, and barracudas! You can sign up at the activity hut at the beach by the condo. WE LOVED IT! The twins even loved counting the stairs- there are 60 of them down to the beach... but we didn't mind at all. The 20 year olds thought it was a "good workout" for them. I wouldn't recommend it for older people with bad hips, but for active people- it's no problem. Our family loves playing games like charades and cards. We forgot to bring our own games- That is the one thing I would recommend. Board games in the room. (but you can use the ones at the activity hut from 10-5pm) We had a blast. Thanks Betsy!

We come to St. Thomas annually. This condo is at a great resort. Betsy and Chris were easy to deal with and were very helpful during our stay. The pictures don't do the unit justice.The resort is beautiful and has plenty to do. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
