East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 2 people

At Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina the view is absolutely breathtaking, offering a post card view of St John and the British Virgin Islands. Our condo is located about fifteen feet from the waters edge on the second floor. The view makes it look as though you are floating on the Caribbean Sea. You may spend your evenings sitting on the chairs on the balcony and taking in the view, the lights on the other islands twinkling in the distance and the pleasure boats entering and departing the marina. The resort offers two fine beaches; one for swimming and the other in front of our building which is better suited for snorkeling. The fresh water pool is only 150 feet away.

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is located at the East End of the Island, we are approximately 12 miles from Cyril E. King Airport (45 minute ride), we are known as the shopping capital of the Caribbean offering Duty Free shopping in Charlotte Amalie 30 minutes away. In the section of the island known as Red Hook, five minutes away from the condo, you can catch the Ferry to St. John, Tortorla, Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke. Attractions offered by the island include Atlantis Submarine, BOB Underwater Adventure three and a half hour aboard 60 foot yacht, diving and snorkeling, Coral World, Divi Carina Bay Casino, Casino in St. Croix, Pistarckle Theater, Theater in Tillett Gardens, Air conditioned theater with more than 100 seats, Skyride to Paradise Point, and V.I. National Park on St. John. For the golfers in the group Mahogany Run, 18 hole golf course.

About The Owner

My husband and I have been married for 39 years now, we have two daughters and 8 grandsons and 3 granddaughters. My husband is retired from the Bridgeport, Ct fire department but owns a construction company which pours concrete for house foundations and additions. I work for eleven different small building companies doing bookkeeping. We have owned at Sapphire Beach for 22 years now and still continue to love it.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1989

Why The Owner chose East End

Went there on a vacation with our children 23 years ago now, they were still in the process of building the condo's. We fell in love with the peacefullness and beauty of the area. When you sit in the condo it looks like your on a cruise ship and your just floating on the water, that's how close you are to the beach. Now our grandchildren love going, in fact they think we can't go without them.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, peaceful, beauty, most of the year a wonderful breeze. The friendliness of the local people. The activities available jet skiing,fishing, snorkeling and diving. I can still stay in contact with the world with the high speed internet service, so I'm able to continue working.

Awesome views

We loved Marsha's condo! It is very comfortable, clean, cheerful and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well equiped and we enjoyed cooking some of our meals. The bathroom is spacious and we especially liked the double sink and the large step-in shower with new tiles. The king size bed was very comfortable. We had our morning coffee and an evening drink every day in the high back chairs on the balcony and admired the ocean and beautiful islands. The beach is very quiet but the ocean was still chilly in March on the east side of the island so we swam in the pool.
We did not think that we would feel comfortable driving on the left so we did not rent a car. Sam was very helpful: he picked us up at the airport and took us to the supermarket to buy groceries on the way to our condo.We were within walking distance from the restaurant and bars in Red Hook but the roads are narrow with no shoulder so we hopped on the little open air bus that runs right by Sapphire Beach Resort.
It was a wonderful, peaceful vacation and we would rent Marsha's condo again.

Wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5
Our first time to the Virgin Islands was one to remember. This wonderful condo was a major part of that. How the owner represents their property is spot on, especially since one can't put into words just how beautiful it really is there. Marsha is excellent in all things related to renting a condo. If you are looking for simplicity, quiet, and "peaceful with a gorgeous view", then this is truly to place for you.

Dining can be accomplished in several ways. We did cab rides into Red Hook as well as using the 'walkable' choices near the unit. "Off the Grid" food truck at the top of the hill was awesome, definitely recommend at least one visit there. "Banana Cabana" was great for lunch, right there on the beach, and nice selections.

We are still on "island time"! We really enjoyed this condo! It was perfect for us:)! The snorkeling was great. Everything is right there. Just hop on a safari taxi and you are in Red Hook. You can even take it to Charlotte Amalie for a shopping day! Owners are helpful and easy to work with. Thank You Marsha and Bill:)!!!

The condo is located on the more quiet side of the beach next to the marina. It is close to the water with a lovely view of St. John. The deck is equipped with a table, 3 chairs and a lounge chair and is shaded in the afternoons. The unit is quiet comfortable. The wifi speed is rather slow, making streaming of video difficult. There is no dishwasher and was no pad to use to scrub dishes, though there was dishwashing liquid. This was only a minor inconvenience. The fact that housekeeping services were not provided during my stay was not an inconvenience, but I learned from others renting in the complex that this was not the norm. Off the Grid (food van) up the hill from the condo was awesome. The Sapphire Bar and Grill above the marina was convenient and friendly with acceptable food and good drinks.

Just as I had it pictured!

My husband and I stayed the last week of February and everything was exactly as it appears online. It has a gorgeous view, right on the ocean. The condo has a nice kitchen, bath and outdoor patio. Bed was a little hard for us, but we slept fine. Great location, close to Red Hook but you cannot walk there! The property is a little run down on the outside, but we loved the fact that it wasn't busy. Met some nice people also staying there and the snorkeling is good, we just tried to go in right in front of the condo and it was too rough and didn't want to step on the coral. I guess the better spot is down on the other side of the pool. Very peaceful, quiet and felt very safe with security around all the time. If you want a lot of action, stay somewhere else. The harbor is awesome and so beautiful to watch the boats coming and going and we did buy some fish from a fishing excursion. Sapphire Beach itself is nice and they keep it clean, woke up the first morning to a worker raking the beach. Good food at the Banana Cabana and we would definitely go back to the same spot if we ever go again. Trunk Bay in St. John is a must see! The most beautiful beach we have ever seen! We loved St. John and the ferry is very close in Red Hook and inexpensive to ride over and back. Owners are helpful and answered all of our questions. The worst part of the trip was flight delays and ended up getting there a day late. I would suggest staying at least 10 days if you are going to travel that far.

This property is exactly as described. Very clean, well maintained and comfortable. Right on the beach with an excellent view from the balcony!! Very close to snorkel beach, pool, and swim beach. If you aren't renting a car, be prepared for several taxi rides. Although there is not a restaurant on the property, since there is a full kitchen, once you make it to the grocery store, that's not a problem. The owners were wonderful, answered every question. I highly recommend this property to family and friends.
