We have now stayed at Nancy's condos three times over the past six years. Each time we have had a wonderful vacation. The units are very clean, well maintained and quiet. Elysian is a nice resort with many features: a cozy beach, large pool, restaurants and sports equipment and activities.
We had a wonderful family vacation (2 parents and 3 young adult children). The unit was very spacious and comfortable. It had all the necessities for cooking and was well stocked. The only thing missing was a blender...we were looking forward to making frozen drinks. We thought the location of this condo was the best in the resort. It was an end unit on the third floor with an easy walk to the pool, restaurants, ocean, gym and tennis courts. The beach was wonderful, but there was a storm at sea and the water was a bit rocky with some seaweed. Excellent for snorkeling! We enjoyed many meals at Sangria's, the Fish Market was a bit too expensive for a family of five, but enjoyed the live music every night at their bar. We rented a car and were very happy we did. The location of the resort is close to Red Hook. We did our groceries at Moe's and enjoyed many meals at the local restaurants. The Moe's grocery store was a little more expensive that the big Food Center, but it was so convenient to stop in after lunch/dinner to get what we needed. We would definitely recommend this condo unit and hope to return some day.
Five girlfriends celebrating their fiftieth birthdays was the occasion for our trip and we were not disappointed one bit! Nancy is super easy to communicate with over the details before and during our trip. Condo was perfect, great set up, awesome views. Convenient to pool and beach. We ate at Sangrias several times which is right in the resort, great breakfasts! We went down one night to the Fish Restaurant on the property with a live band and had a fabulous time! We did not rent a car, just called Lennox anytime we needed to go anywhere, he was awesome and we felt very safe with him. A couple girls took the ferry to St John for the day and also to the BVI for a day, but the rest of us barely left the resort! We had everything we needed there! We went to Moe's for groceries a few times, which is about five minutes away. Food is quite expensive but liquor is cheap so it all works out! Can't wait to go back!
This condo was perfect for our girl's trip of 4. Nancy was fanstatic and easy to work with. She answered all our questions (which were numerous), thoroughly and efficiently. Her condo is beautiful and a super location to all the beaches, restaurants and shopping-only minutes from Red Hook and grocery stores. The unit is very clean and has amazing views of the water and pool (we ate everyday on the outside deck). We played tennis each morning, booked a boat for the day (picked us up on the beach in front of condo) and used the condos snorkel gear for snorkeling. It would have been nice if there was a working safe in the condo (it was broken), so we could have locked up extra cash, credit cards and passports. Also, the kitchen needs a blender for "fun" drinks. Neither of these would deter us from staying there again-we had a blast and highly recommend this gorgeous condo for the perfect getaway.
We enjoyed our stay as we used the condo for our base for over a week. Without a car, just ask the desk for Sebastian's # & he will take or pick you up anywhere on St. Thomas. He runs the resort taxi service & his service is spectacular. The unit was clean, well stocked, & comfortable. Not sure if it is in line with rates with others in the area as I maybe did not take enough time to compare. I thought the rate per night was a bit high. Would recommend though as it is a great place & we had no other issues.
