The Property The property is a gated community with 24-hr security.

There is a salt water pool available for those that would rather opt for a pool setting. There is a shuffle board set on the sand and tennis courts for those looking to enjoy a game or two. The unit has a washer and dryer that guests can use complimentary once per stay, but there is also a coin operated laundromat on the property to make quick work of those bigger loads as needed. Just a short walk down the beach is Dive-In, a place to rent snorkel gear, kayaks, and SUP boards. There is also a beach volleyball court in case you are in the mood for some bump action.
Guest Interaction We will do everything we can to make your trip a memorable one. If you have any questions or would like us to arrange activities while you are visiting please let us know before your arrival and we can make those arrangements. We have discounts negotiated for our guests with tour operators, so if you want to take a sunset sail, or a day trip to the BVIs on a power boat, we can help! The property manager will greet you at the villa at time of your arrival to answer any questions and show you around the villa. They will also be your personal concierge during your stay and available to assist with questions, or to make recommendations while you are on island, or help out if there are any issues during your stay.
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 Around Upon 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 even have a 10% discount negotiated with Budget of St Thomas. Depending on your adventurousness, 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 meet you at the airport for an additional fee. 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.
