ELYSIAN BEACH RESORT

ST. THOMAS | US VIRGIN ISLANDS

About Elysian Beach Resort

There is a vitality about the Elysian that the three other condominium complexes which share the Cowpet Bay waterfront don’t quite have.  The Elysian has been a resort destination – a hotel service used to operate for owners who chose to rent – so there’s a spa, a hair salon (CHECK!), a large ocean-side pool, a tennis court, a mini  convenience store, as well as two restaurants on the property.  It’s got it all, not to mention, proximity to Red Hook, where services abound. 
 
The residences at the Elysian, also known as Cowpet Beach Resort, are designed with a rental option in mind.  Each bedroom has a porch facing the ocean, and a door to the outside.  The common living area can be used as a studio, and the door accessing the bedroom can be locked to enable the owner to rent the bedroom, which includes a full bath, and a station for a mini fridge.   Most units have a bedroom flanking both sides of the common living area, essentially providing for two rentals, while the owner enjoys a studio with a full kitchen, full bath and a laundry room.  Some Elysian units have a loft bedroom/bathroom, with a large balcony.  If being able to host guests or earn rental income is important, you may still enjoy plenty of living area, even if you’ve sectioned off a bedroom or two for private use.
 
Architecturally, the Elysian is perhaps the most attractive of the Cowpet area condominiums.  Some units require you to climb a couple flights of stairs from the parking lot.  Views from the Elysian can be somewhat removed from the ocean.  Many units overlook the parking lot, or the buildings housing the resort’s amenities.  But palm trees abound, a pool adds some cache to the vista, and regardless of what comes first, the sandy beach and blue ocean are where your gaze lands, and they provide a welcome sight as you sip morning coffee or evening drinks from your porch.

Amenities

  • Gated – Although the Elysian gate is often open during the day, there is a guard during the evening monitoring the traffic, which draws many outside guests to the restaurants.
     
  • Dogs – This is one complex that will permit a small dog, with association permission.
     
  • Auto Generator – If the power goes out, your world doesn’t shut down.  And power outages are frequent on St Thomas.  
     
  • Flexibility – Because the Elysian has been known as a resort destination, owners can piggy-back on that reputation and launch their units into a rental program, either by owner or through a service, and hopefully secure some high-income, high-season weekly rentals.

Local Info

  • Ritz Carlton – The luxury hotel is literally a stone’s throw away, a few minutes by sidewalk, and if offers additional restaurant choices as well as  a lovely breach (all beaches are public) with good snorkeling.
     
  • St. Thomas Yacht Club – The Club is walking distance from the Elysian.  It’s welcoming of newcomers who do or do not own boats, but who enjoy reclining on a seaside deck for lunch, dinner and brunch on Sunday.  STYC is a haven for adults and children interested in finding a relaxed social environment.
     
  • Red Hook – You are a 5-minute drive from the heart of the East End – Red Hook.   It’s a vibrant center offering good restaurants, a good grocery store, a hardware store, a medical practice,  a pharmacy, a video store and clothing stores, not to mention the ferry to St. John and the British Virgin Islands.
