Overview

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

2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 5.

Enjoy our beautifully renovated, quiet top floor, 1,450 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 condos, VRBO #76523 or HomeAway #248170 and VRBO #837004 or HomeAway #837004vb, at the same resort). Just up 8 steps to this quiet top floor condo which 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, two more in July 2011 and the last one in January 2014.

Rick & Susan Taylor purchased this condo in 2007

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

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.

Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the condo was great. It had everything we needed for the week. The location is great and very close to Red Hook which has a lot of restaurants and the ferry to St. John. The beach at the resort was very nice and the staff was very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Excellent Condo, Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo unit was very clean and comfortable for 5 adults. Fully equipped kitchen, and basic supplies, sugar, plastic sandwich bags, etc. Coolers and some snorkel gear was available for our use. We found the location perfect for us. Very nice beach, pool, on site restaurants (Sangria's, Caribean Fish Market) and close to Red Hook, St John ferry, popular beaches. The owners made the process easy with good info prior to the visit. We took advantage of the three balconies with beach views for our breakfast coffee and star gazing at night. We would definatly recommend this unit and stay here again.

Great location and nice resort

  • 5 of 5

The condo unit is very nice. Three balconies with beach views, full kitchen and washer / dryer. The owners have supplied a nice amount of beach toys and basic amenities like laundry detergent, dish soap, and some basic foods. There were even a few beers in the fridge when we arrived. The location is great - just a short drive to two of our favorite locations Red Hook and Coki beach. We will be staying here again

Superb!!!

  • 5 of 5

Condo exceeded my expectations. The pictures do not do justice. The condo is very spacious with 3 Amazing decks all with a view of the water and swaying palm trees. The Master bedroom and bath so comfortable. Very clean.

Close to a great beach and nice accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and one tween enjoyed our stay at this condo. We had room to spread out and the condo can easily hold a family of 4-6 with plenty of sleeping room and full baths. There are three balconies which have gorgeous views of the water. It is just a few steps away from a nice beach area where you can rent snorkels, paddle boards, sea kayaks, etc. We never felt that the beach was crowded and there were always plenty of complimentary beach chairs to use. We opened the windows at night and enjoyed the ocean breezes without needing to turn on the AC. For the most part, it is a quiet complex. Although we did experience two noisy nights with other guests enjoying their balconies into the early morning hours. However, this was addressed by the security officer on duty.

We appreciated the service we received from the owners Rick and Susan and were thankful they accepted credit card payments via VRBO. They were responsive to our emails and questions. It is obvious that they care about guest experiences. As an aside, we had looked at another property near the Yacht Club before we found this one and the owners wanted us to send them a check for the full amount which we were not comfortable with. The owners were also very rude to us when we told them we weren't comfortable with sending a check in the mail. All the more reason we were thankful to work with Rick and Susan!

Both restaurants on-site are good and we visited them several times. We arrived at the condo at 11 p.m. and the restaurants closed at 10 p.m. So, if you're catching a red-eye, you may want to stop somewhere along the way for a bite to eat or pack a snack in your luggage (especially if you have kids!) because the restaurants at the resort are not open after 10 p.m.

All in all, we had a great time exploring St. Thomas, St. John and some British Virgin Islands. We plan to visit again!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. The unit is very spacious with three full bathrooms, two lovely balconies, and one rooftop balcony that is spectacular at night (nothing but stars above you). There's a nice beach on the property, many nice beaches in the area, and the town of Red Hook is not far. I'd recommend having a car--opens up the whole island to you. The two problems we had --with the phone and the internet not working when we arrived--were handled graciously and quickly by Rick and Susan, who were a delight to work with. Highly recommend.
