About the property

Jaw-Dropping Caribbean Views, 4 Beaches/3 Pools, Sleeps 6-8

MELT STRESS AWAY THE MINUTE YOU STEP INTO THIS ABSOLUTE PARADISE!! You'll never want to go home! Enjoy a magnificent Virgin Islands vacation, while giving back to the men and women who serve our nation. Through our partnership with military charity, Wish for Our Heroes (a national 501(c)(3)), when you reserve this condo, your dollars also benefit U.S. active-duty military families, and may even allow them to vacation in the same condo at a future date! This spacious Caribbean villa-style suite sits in a romantic vacation setting with views that are out of this world!

Why cram into a hotel room when you can have a spacious, 2-bedroom condo overlooking the Caribbean? Enjoy the wonderful views and breezes from one of the few spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath condos at our resort. Relax on one of 4 beaches, including our private beach at the end of the nature trail in the 15-acre island preserve. Three intimate pools and sun decks are nestled among the lush hillside, hidden high above the horizon. You'll enjoy "fun" dining at Shoreline Bar & Grill, where you can literally dip your toes in the Caribbean!

Some of the best snorkeling on the island is right outside your door! Scuba, jet ski, swim, or just take in the views from one of the prettiest spots on St. Thomas. While St. Thomas is the most convenient and commercial of the US Virgin Islands, our resort is nestled on the eastern side of island (near Red Hook), makes you feel like you're isolated in a tropical jungle paradise. A private beach, nature trails, wild life, immaculate landscaping, and most importantly, the best views and the bluest water on the island of St. Thomas, make our resort one of the coolest destinations in the Virgin Islands.

Our calendar is updated, our rate information is accurate, and you will receive a response to your inquiry within 3 hours. We value your time, and we thank your for your interest in our home.

RECENT UPDATES (as of 1/8/16) - newly remodeled kitchen, new sleeper sofa sectional, new oven range, new master king mattress, new blinds, curtains, ceiling fan, kitchen ware, towels, lawn chairs, coolers and more!

About Jeff or Kristen Wells

We fell in love with St. Thomas on our first trip in 2009. Two years later, we were married on Magen's and bought a condo! We decided to share our condo with folks like you who want to enjoy all the VI's have to offer. We think you'll enjoy our special getaway just as much as we do!

Jeff or Kristen Wells purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jeff or Kristen Wells chose Smith Bay

The laid-back feel of the resort is contagious, yet there are so many things to do! From enjoying 3 pools to 2 beaches, and enjoying the fabulous restaurant on premises, makes everything so convenient. And did I mention the views? Walking into our living room seeing a panorama of BLUE from our front door just never gets old.

What makes this condo unique

Aside from enjoying the wonderful island of St. Thomas, and all the amenities that go with it (swimming, snorkeling, boating, and RELAXING), when you stay at our property, you are helping military families. Through our partnership with Wish For Our Heroes, you can ensure a military family will get to visit St. Thomas, too. With deployments, long hours and ever-changing duty stations and moves, military families sometimes just need some time together to reconnect. Your rental will assist us in providing that opportunity to military families that may not otherwise be able to afford a vacation, or travel to the Virgin Islands. It's just one small way to give back to the men and women that sacrifice so much for us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to thank my hosts Kristen & Jeff for a wonderful vacation for my family. This was my first time using this site and the experience was straightforward. It was a last minute travel and Kristen worked with me to make it happen. The condo view is just breathtaking from the moment you walk in the room. All pictures displayed are exactly as the condo looks, just beautiful. I was able to place a grocery food order prior to our arrival and the kitchen was stocked when we arrived. We were able to secure a Jeep to visit all the nearby beaches and take a day trip to St. John’s. I highly recommend securing a vehicle to travel freely around St. Thomas. All information regarding the resort and St. Thomas was well displayed in a binder on arrival and correspondence sent in advance from Kristen via e-mail. There was a cooler, beach chairs and snorkel gear available for use as well as a cell phone. Everything was taken care of including a parking pass for our stay. My family fell in love with the island and we looking forward to going back to Paradise next year. Thank you again Kristen and Jeff for a great first experience in your beautiful Condo.

The best time!

  • 5 of 5

Point Pleasant and this unit were wonderful! We had our family of 6 (including 4 children) and my elderly father stay here. The view is absolutely as beautiful as it is pictured! You can see Jost Van Dyke, Tortola and St. John quite clearly. Either Point Pleasant was not hit as hard as everyone else, or they have worked very hard to get everything back to working order after the hurricanes, because the property is absolutely beautiful! You will most definitely need a rental car if you stay because you are surrounded by hills. All three pools are up and running and we had a great time there. Mirador (their restaurant) is open. I highly recommend the snapper or steak. The Shoreline restaurant was not open yet, but Mirador serves 3 meals a day if needed. I cannot recommend this unit more! We had so much space, even with 7 of us there. The beds were comfortable and we greatly appreciated the AC units in both of the bedrooms. They have a really comfortable sectional sofa in the living room that fit us all! The unit also comes completely equipped with any kitchen utensils or appliances that you would need too. St. Thomas is ready for visitors again! The beaches are gorgeous and the greenery is coming back and they are rebuilding. We were able to visit Lindquist, Coki and Magan's Bay while we were there. The water, six feet in, was clear to the bottom. There is great snorkeling at all 3 places. We were able to feed the fish out of our hands at Coki. My daughter was able to snorkle with turtles on Magan's. We trekked over to St. John for a day. Cruz Bay is open as well as all the other beaches, but unfortunately a lot of the rest of the island is still rebuilding. But you know how the USVI will rebuild faster-if they have folks who love the island to come back and visit! So come and make memories of a lifetime!

Owner's Response: Megan, thank you SOOO much for your kind words and feedback regarding the VI's hurricane recovery! We do our best to provide updates to guests, but there is nothing better than hearing real-time experiences from other guests. These islands are the crown jewels of the Caribbean, and your last point was exactly right. The more people come to see these spectacular places, the faster they will recover! Thank you SO MUCH for helping in that cause! We will see you again soon!

When can we come back? Beautiful--even after the hurricanes!

  • 5 of 5

Point Pleasant and especially this unit were wonderful! We had a great visit and would definitely come back to this unit! The view is just as beautiful as everyone says. The unit was very nice and had everything we needed--pots, pans, blow-up air mattress, plus pull-out couch and even some beach toys. The bedrooms have A/C and the beds were comfortable. It was spacious and fit our family of 6 (4 children), plus visiting father, just fine. St. Thomas is still in recovery-mode from the hurricanes, but the beaches are still just as beautiful. Point Pleasant looks wonderful. All 3 pools were up and functioning and provided our children with a lot of entertainment. If you rent here, you will definitely need a car! Those hills, while beautiful, would be a bear to try and walk up and down each day! Point Pleasant is a beautifully-landscaped resort with well-kept walking trails that you just had to stand and take a moment to enjoy everything surrounding you. Mirador is open and was very tasty--I recommend the snapper (if available) and/or steak! There are laundry facilities on site if needed as well. We were able to drive to visit Coki Beach, Lindquist Beach (our favorite) and Magan's Bay. I suppose if you were a strong swimmer, you could swim from the Point Pleasant beach cove to the others, but that would be a long swim--so rent a car! Just a wonderful visit overall--I am glad we were able to come and help contribute to the recovery efforts by being there.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We loves our stay at this condo. Location was great, not far from grocery stores and shops. Condo had lots of space. Plenty of room for 4 adults and one toddler and we didn’t feel crammed at all.

Still Paradise even after Irma

  • 5 of 5

I rented this unit for a week starting on 1/1/2018. I was concerned about damage from Irma.

This unit has zero damage. The building had zero damage. The resort had some damage but when I arrived the workers were gardening. The resort has been all cleaned up so they are back to the gardening.

The resort pool was fully functional and had an incredible view. The onsite restaurants food was excellent and yes it also has an incredible view.

I drove all over St Thomas and St John. St John is like Chicago in March since it has a lot of pot holes. Almost all the restaurants are open in both St John and St Thomas, the bars are all open and the beaches are all clean and perfect.

Personally, I would recommend Cokie Beach. It is a short walk from the unit with only one real issue. Walking by Margarittaville without stopping for a cold drink in each direction. :)

Therefore, if you want to spend time in Paradise without the crowds now is the time. This unit is the right place since the view from the front room is outstanding and the resort is landscaped like a garden.

Great Condo, Great Views, Great for large families on a budget!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is clean, and in a great location. From the condo balcony you have a beautiful view, where you can also see Coral World, which is a very short drive. You can Dive, do a Helmet Dive, or ever Snuba there. Decently priced and our entire family did the Snuba. Our family of 6 had PLENTY of space in the condo and enjoyed every single day. Everything you might need is available for use. From towels, to extra sheets and blankets, pans, etc. There is a very nice, kind of secluded beach for $5 per person called Lindquist Beach. Beautiful clear waters and white sands. Not as busy as the world famous Magens Bay, just be sure to avoid Magens Bay on cruise ship days! The restaurant on site is AMAZING. The staff, food, and bar drinks were equally as amazing. There is a pool and small beach area on site for the days you don't want to drive. We rented a Van, took us a full day to get used to driving on the opposite side of the roads, and the hills/sharp turns were scary at first. But if you want to be able to do want you want without having to wait on transportation, I recommend you rent your own vehicle. If you chose this condo for your St Thomas vacation, you won't regret it. We've used VRBO/Home Away.com several times, and this is my favorite condo we've rented. I could also recommend Bad Kitty Tour, it's a little expensive, but very worth every penny. Bring passports for BVI tours.

Perfect and surreal

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away at the top of the hill, this condo provided a view that takes your breath away every time you see it! Everything was clean and ready upon arrival and the care was incredible :) you are in walking distance to some of the best beaches like Coki beach, and just a short shuttle from the hidden gem, Lindquist Beach!! Didn't have a rental car and we managed to stay busy because everything is so close!

The rooms and bathrooms were more than accommodating for us 6 girls that stayed in the condo! They even have supplies for the pool/ocean. Best vacation rental!!
