Located on St. Thomas' desirable East End, we are a mile from the village of Red Hook with its shops and ferry terminal. Choose dining in or out. Many popular restaurants and a complete grocery market are nearby, within a 10-minute drive. From the Red Hook ferry terminal, you can take day excursions to St. John and the British Virgin Islands of Tortola and Virgin Gorda. Or have dinner and watch the sunset from St. John. Then take the 20-minute ferry back.

St. Thomas island itself is 32 sq. miles—about the size of the island of Manhattan—some 13 miles long from East to West and three miles north to south. It is divided lengthwise by a low mountain range that offers some spectacular views.

If you choose to rent a car, there is convenient parking right outside the apartment's back door. If you prefer not to drive, taxis are readily available and will come when you call. The local $2 open-air (safari-style) mini-bus stops frequently at the end of the complex's driveway.

Charlotte Amalie, with its shop-after-shop of duty-free delights, historic buildings and spectacular views, is just 20 minutes away depending on traffic.
