We stayed at Cheeseburger in Paridise from 7/1 - 7/8 and absolutely loved it. Mary was extremely attentive to our needs, responding promptly to questions in the weeks leading up to our trip and during our stay.
We are a family of 5 avid snorkelers with 3 boys ranging from 20 to 10. We have visited 12 islands in the Caribbean, and chose to return to Sapphire Beach for the incomparable off shore snorkeling. Sapphire Beach is unique in that you have amazing and diverse sea life just steps from your condo. We swam with sea turtles, spotted eagle rays, sting rays, squid, and a wide variety of fish on a daily basis.
Since we were with extended family who also stayed at Sapphire, we were able to compare our condo with two other units. Here are a few amenities that set this condo apart: beautiful, well stocked kitchen with granite countertops, land line for making local calls, free wifi and use of a lap top if you need it, high quality snorkeling masks and fins, a wide selection of movies and video games, safe, and keyless entry. It was so convenient to enter our own PIN to access the condo, instead of having to bring a key to the beach or pool. Building E gets a gentle breeze and has an amazing view of St. John. We were able to watch the fireworks on July 4th on St. John from our balcony. We were so enamored with our view from the condo, we took to ordering out from Duffy's or Fish Tales in nearby Red Hook, making our own rum cocktails, and eating on the balcony instead of going out to dinner. We did eat one dinner out at the Caribbean Fish Market, which was very nice.
Building E is right next to the marina. Huge tarpon feed every night around 6 pm off the dock - fun to watch. Fishing and snorkeling charters leave right from the marina which is so convenient. We did one excursion with Aqua Blue to Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Norman Island, The Caves, and The Indians. I highly recommend Aqua Blue. We also took the car barge over to St. John one day and visited Trunk Bay, Water Lemon Cay, and Coral Bay.
If you're looking for a relaxing, tropical vacation with gentle breezes, jaw dropping views and amazing snorkeling at your doorstep, look no further than Cheeseburger in Paradise.
