The Neighborhood Crystal Cove is located on the east end of St Thomas, near the small “town” of Red Hook, just a mile from the gates where you can enjoy numerous award winning restaurants and bars. If you are feeling adventurous, the passenger and car ferries to St John are located in Redhook as well and deliver you to the white sand beaches of the quaintest virgin isle, St John. Redhook also offers great shopping, day charter boat tours to the BVIs, fishing excursions for big game fish, and diving tours for those seeking some more fun and sun while visiting. There are also 4 amazing beaches nearby. The property sits on Sapphire Beach, but famous Lyndquist Beach is only .5 miles west, and there is Secret Harbor and Great Bay just on the other side of Redhook about 5 minutes away. Getting AroundUpon arrival at the airport guests can take a taxi to the villa or rent a car. A car rental is highly recommended and will be more cost effective over the course of your stay. We have negotiated a 10% discount for our guests with Budget of St Thomas. Depending on your comfort level with driving on the LEFT HAND side, you can choose to rent a car and explore St Thomas on your own. Having your own vehicle will provide more freedom and driving on the LEFT HAND side of the road is only weird for the first few minutes For those not looking for the excitement of driving on roads over dormant volcanic hills, we can suggest taking a taxi to the property, or we can have a taxi familiar with the property pick you up. Once on the property, you can take the islands preferred method of transport as well, the SAFARI bus. Modified pickup trucks with covered seating in the pickup bed run the entire length of the island for only $2. They stop just outside of the gate on the main road and can quickly take you to Redhook for $1. The loop is clockwise on the island and they stop running around 7:30pm, so you would have to take a taxi back from Redhook to the villa.
