Just rent it!
Unit is exactly as described (which is not always the case!). Very clean, tasteful and not over the top. Although this is a studio unit, there is also a good sized closet to stash suitcases, shoes, etc so that the unit does not get overwhelmed with 'stuff'. Unit for a studio is very spacious and direct view of the bay with constant sea breezes and a patio with a table/2 chairs. Galley kitchen with stove, sink, full fridge/freezer, as well as toaster, Mr Coffee type coffee pot, blender, utensils, pans. The bathroom is also adequate size AND CLEAN!! Towels provided were nice quality as well.
There were also beach towels, snorkels, masks available for use.
Few negatives but know before you go that the wifi is non-existent in most of the unit. It does work in the kitchen area and that was it. Owners have included that in their listing so it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Just know that they are NOT kidding. This would not make a good unit if you are planning on doing any significant internet work BUT AT&T cell/data service on the island is really good and it is all considered 'domestic' if you're traveling from the states.
The unit is ground level very near the pool. There are however flights of stairs to negotiate, so not exactly a 'walk in' unit.
We did experience a guest with small, rambunctious little ones who went to the pool EARLY one morning. This is not something that the owners can control. Otherwise there were no issues with the pool patrons.The pool and area around it are very clean and nicely landscaped. Plenty of lounge chairs available poolside as well.
There is a restaurant /bar onsite (Mim's- also just a few yards from the room) that does a nice dinner. They were not doing lunch. Although there seemed to be people celebrating every evening, it had always calmed down by 9 or 10 pm. Iggies restaurant/bar just a 5-10 minute walk down the beach does 3 meals and is less expensive. Nightly music (you won't hear this in the unit btw). Other restaurants just down the road in Red Hook along with groceries. Laundry onsite. This is one of few units with tasteful security bars on windows/patio door. You won't really notice them but do make the unit more secure.
The water is beautiful but still a lot of erosion after the hurricanes. You will need water shoes to really use this 'beach' (still very beautiful tho!).
Overall, if you're thinking of renting this unit-DO IT. It is very lovely and overall a peaceful spot.
Vacation March 2019
I have been going to St Thomas since the 1990's. I enjoyed this property and all it includes. Two walking restaurants, music and fun folks around.
The unit was clean and ready to move into to enjoy my time on island. Close to many other places you will want to see while visiting. It was exactly what I expected and I truly enjoyed relaxing on and off the property.
I highly recommend any of Mr and & Mrs's Browning's units.
This property was clean & fresh everywhere! I'm talking the shelves inside kitchen cabinets, inside the kitchen drawers, even under the furniture!! Well stocked kitchen. Very thoughtful to include snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, and cooler. Super location for access to the pool and Mim's. The restaurant was never too loud, too late.
Great Family Vacation
My family and I rented both the two and three bedroom condos from Scott and Leah Browning. The condos were as advertised and more. The condos have modern amenities such as flat screen televisions and wi-fi. Both necessities when entertaining a 7 year old. The Brownings provided leisure items like floats, snorkeling gear and pool toys. We have had to rent these items at other locations we have stayed. From the initial contact through the end of our stay, Scott and Leah could not have been more helpful. They guided us throughout the process of booking and made everything so simple. We even booked Captain Scott's boat, Rock On, for a charter. My family and I enjoyed every minute of our vacation thanks to Scott and Leah. We will be returning to the St. Thomas and staying with them again! Thanks for helping us make great memories! Jesse, Tara and Temperance.
Great Condo Location!
The condo location is great (if you have a rental car, which we did). Nice being able to relax on the patio, have great access to near by beach, restaurants, water activities (340 Water Sports) and felt it was safe/private area. Like the other reviews the condo was set up nicely and the kitchen had the basics and a plus was the dish washer that worked and they had dish soap. Was also nice that the AC units worked well! Big bonus that you can walk to the beach bar and Mim's! Didn't have any problems with Mim's being to loud as they close at 10 pm. You need to eat at Mim's at least once while you are there....mighty good.
We did rent jet skies from 340 Sports and for 30 minutes for each jet it was $75....worth it!
Scott was great to work with an everything we need was in the unit when we got there. The only complaint our group had while there the week was the internet only works on the patio. We did spend most of our time on the patio as its so beautiful out, but it would have been nice to have it within the unit. With having the poor wifi is why I gave them 4 stars. Other than that if we are to go back we would most likely come to one of Scott's units.
We love Rental 307427
The condo location and position is wonderful. - the perfect combination of relaxing privacy and accessibility to beach activities, necessities, and restaurants. Condo is fully equipped with many amenities. We snorkeled with sea turtles and rays right off the condo beach! The pool was a bonus and large enough to swim laps. The restaurant food was very good and reasonably priced and next time we would pack a suitcase with nonperishable food items to cut on grocery store costs. Scott and Leah are very professional and provide intensive pre-trip advice with more info binders in the unit. We traveled with a 17 and 20 year old and they loved it too! Easy access to and from the airport. Many places to sight see, shop and snorkel on St. Thomas and the Ferry ride to St. John is a must with breathtaking sights and beaches, shopping, restaurants and activities as well - really a fantastic 2 for 1 vacation!
