Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in East End

Condominium, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 7)

See the spectacular views from our quiet top floor 1,800 sq. ft. three bedroom, four full bath, non-smoking condominium at the Wyndham's Elysian Beach Resort overlooking beautiful Cowpet Bay (also see our other three bedroom condo, VRBO #837004 or HomeAway #837004vb, and 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 50-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 or eat on the balcony 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, two more in July 2011 and one in January 2014.

Rick & Susan Taylor purchased this condo in 2005

Why Rick & Susan Taylor chose St. Thomas

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!

Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

This condo is gorgeous and very comfortable like a beautiful home away from home. There is a fully equipped kitchen if guests want to cook meals and save a little money plus nice restaurants on the resort and more nearby in the area. The beach is beautiful, never crowded, and chairs/towels are provided. Great snorkeling right here on the resort. We loved the fitness center with plenty of state of the art equipment. I highly recommend staying here.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time in St Thomas with family. We had 7 people stay here and it was the perfect size! They had everything we needed in the kitchen, towels, pool/beach stuff, even the sheets were great! There were so many outdoor patios to use, everyone had their own! A grocery store was near by, the pool/beach didn't have to many people and the restaurants at the hotel were nice. Definitely would reccomend to rent a car to get around the island and explore. We were lucky to get there when the seaweed was not on the beach by the condo, it showed up a couple of days in. Just went to other beaches and enjoyed the pool. Condo was in a good location and safe area, nice community and staff. Owners were extremely helpful and made the whole process super easy to rent, they even gave us their personal phone numbers so we can text or call with any questions. Our first time renting from this site and are appreciative of their kindness.

Spectacular!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 10 days at the condo for our wedding and it couldn't have been better. The roof-top deck was the perfect setting for pre-ceremony pictures. The bathrooms were amazing and the view from all balconies spectacular.

The unit has everything you need and was very comfortable. Rick was very responsive both prior to the visit as well as answering any questions we had once there. I've stayed at other units at Elysian and they don't compare to this one. I would highly recommend this property for your vacation.
