St. Thomas Condos For Rent


Renting a condo on St. Thomas marks the best way to stay on the island for many travelers. Let's explore both the pros and cons for those looking to either rent a St. Thomas condo or stay in a hotel and compare accommodations options. While the choice ends up a personal decision based on which features mean the most to you, upon a detailed review many who started their plans thinking of a hotel may end up booking a condo rental.

More space in a condo deservedly starts the analysis. Even a studio condominium offers greater square footage than a hotel room and sometimes double or triple the area. Move up to a rental condo with several bedrooms and the find yourself with space equal to five or more hotel rooms. Spread out, enjoy comfortable seating and relax. With one area to gather and watch TV, another to eat and separate sleeping quarters you'll feel more at home while in St. Thomas. This extra space comes with a bonus advantage. Due to the floor space reserved for your own unit, by definition, any noisy neighbors end up further away. The larger your family the more a condo makes sense. No more sharing beds or rollaways cramming into one room. When you try to double space in a hotel room you can get an adjoining room, but that doubles the price too. The marginal cost of renting a 2 bedroom condo versus a studio should not run anywhere close to twice the price.

Looking at the cost of renting a St. Thomas condo in more depth yields even more pleasant news. When looking at larger units, renting a condominium often ends up cheaper than a basic hotel room. Travelers needing accommodations for a larger family discover condo rental budgets at a fraction of multiple hotel rooms. In one recent comparison a full week at a four bedroom St. Thomas condo cost about the same as a two nights in a luxury hotel given the number of rooms required. Travelers with families typically envision a condominium rental as a unit with 2 to 4 bedrooms that accommodates the entire group on vacation all in one spot. For a family reunion or Caribbean Wedding even a place with multiple condos for rent so that all guests can stay in the same place. In the USVI on St. Thomas the rental condos at Cowpet Bay come to mind as matching this description first. Located near Frenchman's Reef and Red Hook, both the Cowpet Bay East and Cowpet Bay West complexes offer great rooms and a nice beach. Units present themselves with pride ranging from a state of upscale comfort to over the top luxury. The complex staff understands the needs of people on a short term vacation and works hard to insure they enjoy their visit.

Smaller groups, individuals and couples looking to save some money should consider renting a studio or 1 bedroom condo at either Bluebeard's Beach Club or Bluebeard's Castle. While the two unrelated properties share a name and the type of accommodations, they stand apart and on their own in every other way. Bluebeard's Beach Club lies right on the Caribbean Sea with its own beach. The Wyndham group manages Bluebeards' Beach Club and insures rooms meet the expectations of upscale travelers. Bluebeard's Castle rests on a hill overlooking downtown Charlotte Amalie. Those who appreciate walks with steep hills back to their condo can access both downtown Charlotte Amalie and the Havensight Mall area by foot from Bluebeard's Castle. Once at the castle enjoy the features of a full resort including a pool, restaurant, fitness room and concierge. Unless your trip centers around business downtown or St. Thomas jewelry store shopping, you may find between these two Bluebeard's the Beach Club emerges as both the more upscale as well as the more expensive of the pair.

On the north shore between Megan's Bay and Red Hook find a string of condos either with direct beachfront access, or more likely a short hike to the beach; these include Point Pleasant, Pavilions And Pools, Sapphire Beach and Secret Harbor condominiums. On the plus side, these condos may be rented like hotel rooms without minimum stays or cleaning fees with rates that often total lower than a hotel stay. Booking can take place online using the same software commonly expected for hotels. The same hotel type booking system applies to the two Bluebeards already discussed as well. Travelers will find most of these rental condos provide great views too. On the minus side, the accommodations you receive depend on the exact unit you end up in with as each condo remains individually owned without much centralized quality control. This means some guests may end up in a newly renovated condominium while others face an outdated room.

The savings by renting a condo in St. Thomas continue when figuring the money spent on food. With a hotel room one faces eating out for all meals. Trips taking advantage of a condo rental provide the advantage of cooking in the condo all the time or occasionally depending on your preferences. Most people will find substantial savings on food. The same theory extends to your liquor expenses too.
