This was my husband and my first trip to St Thomas and definitely will not be our last. After lots of research, I decided that the Red Hook area sounded perfect for us, and then I discovered Crystal Cove Condos online (bestbeach.com) and I knew we had our spot! It’s about a 30-40 minute taxi ride from the airport ($15 cab fare per person including luggage). When we got there, the outside of the condos do look a little run down, but the inside is very modern, clean and spacious and the bed was very comfortable and Building A is beach front! We had everything we needed and more in the full kitchen, so we could have breakfast and few lunches there, as well as make our pina coladas and other drinks for the beach. Once we settled in, we took the dollar bus (just walk up to the top of the entrance) to the Food Center (just a couple miles up the road). We found everything we needed for breakfast, lunch and snacks, as well as liquor and wine. Prices are a little higher, but it’s tax free. I made the best pina coladas using Cruzan Aged Rum, Cruzan Banana rum, Coco Lopez and 1 banana! The staff at the Food Center was so friendly. We learned from them that Dollar (safari) bus only travels in one direction on the island, so they called us a cab back to the condo ($12.00). The cab driver recommended Fish Tails in Red Hook for dinner, so we took his advise and went there (great seafood) and then went to Duffy’s Love Shack (Wednesday night Ladies drink here). Duffy’s was definitely one of our favorite spots! It’s a hole in the wall in a parking lot, but tons of fun and great dance music! We felt very safe in Red Hook and walking around condo area in the dark. Our first morning is when I realized just how beautiful Sapphire Beach is. It was completely breathtaking, probably one of the prettiest beaches I’ve been to in the Caribbean! I took a walk on the beach while my husband slept and discovered a great little vendor in the parking lot of Sapphire Beach resort that had really good coffee (also served breakfast, lunch and mixed drinks). The condo will supply beach chairs and towels. The beach is fairly quiet, at times, I felt like it was our own private beach. There is great snorkeling in the water and a place to rent snorkeling gear and other water stuff. If you want to go to St John’s the Ferry is like a ½ mile or less away. We walked there from the condo. Some suggestions for St John - go to Woodys Seafood and try Shark bites and there is a small market around the corner to enjoy rum and coconut water out of fresh coconuts). We also did a British Virgin Island excursion with New Horizons and Breakaway Charter (highly recommended) and the Sapphire Marine where the excursion starts is just a walk down the beach. If you want to go to Charlotte Amaile – take the dollar bus there. It will take about 20-30 minutes, but you get to enjoy seeing parts of St Thomas on the way. You will have to take a taxi back though. We will definitely be returning next year to St Thomas and stay at Crystal Cove Condos. The owner, Dave, was wonderful to work with. I didn’t get the pleasure of meeting Norma, the housekeeper, but our place was left very clean on the Thursday and Friday we were there. So, if you are looking for a wonderful location in St Thomas, that is reasonably priced, very safe, close to restaurants, bars, grocery store, ferry, etc. and just a hop in a taxi or dollar bus to anywhere else on the island, then I highly recommend Crystal Cove Condos, Building A (go to bestbeach.com to book!)

“Simply the best...AGAIN”
Reviewed 23 March 2011 for a stay in February 2011

We returned to St. Thomas over Presidents Week vacation, and stayed in the A Unit at Crystal Cove. Dave Paresky is the owner and he is such a pleasure to deal with. The unit was top notch and only a couple of giant steps from the beach. We had a great time at Crystal Cove, as well as travelling to St. John and taking a trip to the Baths. We've done this twice now, but it's so good we might have to make this a yearly thing...

“Awesome beach, Best location in St. Thomas condo terrific!!!”
Reviewed 16 March 2011 for a stay in March 2011

The condo is in "A" building with the best views and closest location to the beach. Beach is literally 20 steps away from your condo door. The condo A4 was magnificent! All the amenities you need to have a super time. The housekeeper Norma is the best in all of St. Thomas! Greeting you with a smile and a welcoming hug and is at your call for whatever you might need. Recommendations for great places to eat, offering a cooler if you are on a day trip, or always being available to answer any questions you might have.
Have been a return guest for many years and will continue to go to Crystal Cove Condominiums (especially "A" building) for many years to come.
