About the property

Tortuga Del Mar - 1BR/1BA Couples Retreat - Owner Operated

We were so fortunate unlike others and Tortuga Del Mar suffered minimal damage after Hurricanes Irma and Maria*** (please read below). But we, along with most at Point Pleasant have electricity, cable and WiFi! We have a Smart TV and you can sign into Netflix or any of your streaming services to watch tv when you relax after your adventurous days.

Tortuga Del Mar is perfectly suited as a Couples Retreat or for Couples with Small Children. Tortuga Del Mar is a 1 bedroom junior suite and owner-operated as we take great pleasure in offering our condo to you for your vacation. Our property is an independently operated villa rental located within the Point Pleasant Villa Owners Association (PPVOA) Condominium Property but is not part of the Resort Hotel Program. The biggest and best difference between renting directly with us and a unit only available through the Resort Hotel Program is that we’re able to focus on just one rental at a time – YOURS! We can also GUARANTEE that THIS is the property you'll get when you arrive.

A relaxing, quiet place to stay while adventuring out and enjoying our beautiful Virgin Islands! We provide our guests with a welcome package including a list of our favorite things to do (Help us add to the list by providing us with your favorites), helpful hints and directions, allowing you the freedom to explore all the islands have to offer at your own pace.

The only way to truly see and explore is to rent a car! Pack up the cooler, the beach chairs and the snorkel gear and take them with you while exploring St. Thomas or take the car ferry to St. John for the day, stopping at all the beautiful beaches our islands offer.

Our villa is the Perfect size for couples or couples with small children! We have completely remodeled our condo with new floors and granite counter-tops in the kitchen and bath. New AC and New Stove. New Smart TV to watch your favorite Netflix or Hulu shows (from your own subscription). New Mattresses with an additional memory foam topper for the bed.

Enjoy Food and Drinks and Mirador Restaurant with amazing views from the Bar area or carry your cocktails down to the Terrace Pool with Views to the BVI!

Junior suite on the first floor! No steps to maneuver. New furniture and linens and tastefully decorated with all the amenities of home.

Point Pleasant has 3 pools located throughout the property with amazing views everywhere you turn. A nature trail takes you to a beautiful gazebo with views to St. John and the BVIs; a different path will lead you down to a secluded little “postcard” of a beach. This is one of our favorite places to watch the sunrise. 24-hour security. The villa is cleaned before and after your stay but for a small additional fee can be freshened up for you as needed.

Cable TV and Complimentary upgraded Wi-Fi in the Condo.

Beach chairs, a cooler and snorkeling gear are provided for your use and enjoyment in the condo.

• Balcony with outdoor table overlooking the grounds and Water Bay – perfect for having morning coffee or an evening cocktail.

• Full kitchen with granite counter-tops and all you need to cook and eat-in when you wish.

• 24 hour security

• In room safe

• Brand New Queen bed in bedroom and a comfy queen pull-out sofa, memory foam toppers.

Enjoy intimate Sugar Beach, watch the sunrise and bring your snorkel gear and head right out to watch turtles munching on sea grass. Walk to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville for drinks and dinner.

Coki Beach is a short drive (or a short walk) and has some of the best snorkeling with its crystal clear blue water. Dive lessons and equipment are available right on Coki Beach. You can see many varieties of coral as well as turtles and many types of tropical fish. Coral World is right next to Coki, where you can even explore underwater without getting wet!.

Beautiful Lindquist Beach (Smith Bay Park) is a 2 minute drive down the road and the Point Pleasant owners’ favorite beach to relax. Bring the beach chairs provided for you, a cooler (also provided) stocked with lunch and libations and relax, swim, snorkel or even nap. Plenty of sun or shade can be found at Picturesque Lindquist Beach.

World Famous Magens Bay is a short 10 minute drive away offering calm waters, Paddle Board Rentals, snack bar, beach boutique, and relaxing in the Sun or Shade. Family oriented.

If your into Dining and/or Nightlife there are many options available. Drive to Red Hook; just a 5 minute car ride away where you will find many bars and restaurants including our favorites, Island Time Pub (with great Pizza) and Tap & Still for Yummy Burgers and Fries. A romantic dinner can be had at XO Bistro. Try out the newest restaurant in Red Hook, Thali Indian Grille - you will not be disappointed! Stop at Rockstone Grille for lunch or dinner, with an array of burgers and good food, located at Tillett Gardens! Several Shops have handmade Local VI made items! Had a long day at the beach? Stay in and cook in our full kitchen. Don't want to go grocery shopping? New delivery services are available at a reasonable cost.

After a 5 minute drive to Red Hook, there are ferries to St. John (no passport required) and to Tortola, Jost Van Dyke and other islands in the BVI (passport required). Take the car ferry to St. John packed with your beach supplies and spend the day exploring and enjoying the beautiful beaches of St. John.

Did someone say shopping? Don’t forget to head downtown, Havensight, or to the beautiful Galleria shops at Yacht Haven Grande and snap up great deals on jewelry, cameras, electronics and souvenirs for your friends and family. Beside the lower cost, all purchases are tax free!

About Xaverie & Daniel Hull

The Virgin Islands is now our home. We love exploring and enjoying the beautiful beaches of all the Islands. After traveling the world as Military Brats, we finally found a place that we can call our home and we love that we get to share it with others.

Xaverie & Daniel Hull purchased this condo in 2010

Why Xaverie & Daniel Hull chose Smith Bay

We purchased Tortuga Del Mar for our personal enjoyment but wanted to share with others as we love it so much. We ended up buying another one for us to live in! We get the best of both worlds, being at home and being on vacation at the same time!

What makes this condo unique

Close to Red Hook and the ferries to both St. John and the British Virgin Islands and even closer to our favorite beach - Lindquist Beach - a 2 minute drive down the road. We can walk to Coki Beach in the morning or down to intimate Sugar Beach right on the property!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and a very relaxing vacation . This was the first one with the baby and the condo was perfect for our little family.

One of the beaches we enjoyed the most was the Smith Bay Beach which was so close and enough private for us.

Owner's Response: Azem, It was our pleasure to host your family in our condo and to meet you in person. Our favorite beach is Smith Bay Beach too! It is also known as Lindquist Beach. We hope that you will make the Virgin Islands an annual family tradition! Come back and visit us anytime. We provide all of our returning guests with a discount. Xaverie

Great condo!

  • 4 of 5

I visited St. Thomas recently and stayed at Point Pleasant. It's in a good location. It's walking distance from Coqui Beach and just a short taxi ride to Sapphire Beach. The condo is nice and Xaverie was responsive to any questions or concerns we had. I would recommend it for anyone considering St. Thomas.

This property did not have a NICE VIEW or a swimmable beach.

  • 2 of 5

This property did not live up to our expectations, limited view and no real swimmable beach. On the plus side, the unit was clean and centrally located.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to St. Thomas. This unit was very clean, has a nice angled view of the bay and the lush foliage provides privacy. This unit is located at the back of the development which lends it to being quite and low traffic. The kitchen was sufficient for our week stay. The kitchen and bath have been updated. The location of Point Pleasant is very convenient to Red Hook and Charlotte Amalie. You will enjoy this development, unit and location.

Lovely property with beautiful views. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Hosts Xaverie and Daniel are on top of everything. We would not hesitate to recommend them or to come back.
