BEAUTIFUL OCEANFRONT CONDO

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, Full Bath, Queen bed

Sapphire Beach is the finest beach on St Thomas, and this unit is a professionally renovated condo on the first floor. The glass wall faces the beach and ocean - you walk out the wall to wall patio doors onto the beach sand. The ocean is 100 feet away, the unit is next to the pool for family or sunbathing convenience, and the view out of the full wall glass doors is tropical paradise. Lite lunch and restaurant facilities are available on site and within walking distance. Red Hook is one mile away - a very short car or taxi ride to a town which is active both day and night for restaurants, pubs, shopping, music, and if you want to travel further, Red Hook has the ferry service to other islands. And by the way, if you need a car - and we highly recommend getting one - we have one to rent.

Suitability:
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome

COULDN'T ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE!

Couldn't ask for anything more!

Not only is Pete great but his condo is FANTASTIC! It is wonderfully decorated, fully renovated, clean, absolutely beautiful and relaxing. Step off the back deck and you are on the beach, directly in front of the pool. He has EVERYTHING you could imagine, from gourmet cooking utensils/pots/spices to beach toys. I have no intention of staying anywhere else when I am in STT. My aunt was staying at a separate condo at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina, she basically stated she would be renting from Pete from now on. Thank you, Pete, for helping to make my short, yet eventful vacay a great one! Also, the manager, Kathleen, is the sweetest person.

Another magnificent week a sapphire. Pete is a terrific owner. And his manager Kathleen is top shelf as well. Brand new bed. A/C just serviced and cleaned. Can wait to go back in July and staying here again of course. Thx again Pete and Kathleen for a great week.

SIMPLY THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5
Sapphire Beach is where we spent our honeymoon years ago as well a return visit 10 years ago. On our third visit to the island, this is where we wanted to stay again, as this is the best beach overall. On this visit, however, we decided to book through VRBO because this is the only way to really know what you’re going to get. All condos are not equal! After reading a number of reviews we decided on Pete’s unit, as it looked like a no-brainer. And it was.

I won’t be redundant by repeating the numerous praises others have left about Pete’s unit here, but will validate them. Call the U.S. for free from the unit? Check. Use his car at a very reasonable rate? Check. Free pickup and drop-off at the airport? Check. (But you must tip Ibu!) Dishes, pots and pans, coffee, spices, oil, and more in the unit? Yes. Wi-fi, beach towels, George Foreman grill? Yep!

And Pete is simply a first-class guy! He’s generous, friendly, and cares very much about the quality of your stay. He stays here regularly, so is sharing his home with you. Anything in the unit is yours to use (with the exception of what he's locked away). And it feels like a home, not a hotel room.

You are well taken care of by Kathleen and Ibu, both of whom regularly checked in on us. Why would you stay anywhere else?

A quick note on the beach and resort, which has gotten some attention lately in online reviews. The public but privately-owned facilities (restaurant, chair rentals, snorkeling rentals, etc.) were temporarily shut down on our visit. Pete has a snorkeling mask in the unit, but if you want full gear at this beach -- and if these facilities are still closed (so inquire) -- bring your own. It was no big deal to us, as we mainly love sitting by the water and just occasionally swimming. The condo association has some beach lounge chairs for residents’ use only. (Pete has two chairs for your use.) The upside of this is that the cruise ships aren’t bringing people here anymore, so the beach is uncrowded.

When we return next year, we’ll stay in Pete’s unit again. No brainer.

WONDERFUL STAY AT SAPPHIRE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned home from our 7 night stay at Sapphire Beach Resort. Peter was really easy to coordinate with pre-arrival. Kathleen is the on-site manager and stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed. She was able to arrange a pack and play for our 4 month old daughter for our stay and provided a housekeeping mid-stay to freshen up the linens. The condo was very clean and tastefully appointed. There were plenty of pantry basics (oil, vinegar, spices, coffee) available for use and nice kitchen equipment and dishes for those who want to cook meals at home. We took advantage of renting Pete’s car for the stay which was really convenient and we really appreciated the airport pick up/drop off. Our driver, Ibu, was very pleasant, pointing things out of interest and providing directions along the way. The condo also has wi-fi which is nice for those of us who don’t completely want to disconnect from home. We also really liked being on the first floor, it made life easier with the stroller and it was wonderful literally being a couple of steps from the beach. I would definitely recommend staying here.

FANTASTIC VACATION SPOT ON ST. THOMAS!

  • 4 of 5
We just spent 10 fabulous days on Sapphire Beach and really enjoyed this unit. The location was better than we imagined, just steps from the pool and the beach, and although it was on the ground level we still felt that our privacy was not compromised. The unit was very clean with an updated bath. The updated kitchen was well-stocked with many extras such as spices and nice quality dishes and cookware. The owner, Peter, was very easy to work with and responded quickly to any concern or questions we may have had. Kathleen, the manager, is a pleasure to work with as well!
This location is so convenient, just a short distance from the ferry, shopping, and a nice variety of restaurants. Our view of St. John and other islands in the distance presented a beautiful backdrop for relaxation, and the snorkeling was really great right from our own beach! The beach and pool never felt crowded. The marina was close by for day sailing trips and fishing and power boat charters.
We definitely rate this vacation 9 out of 10 and would return to this unit and this location without hesitation!

LONG-DELAYED REVIEW FOR EXCELLENT VISIT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and it was perfect! Pete is quick with communication, and keeps a very well-stocked, well-maintained, and clean condo. You can tell he uses the property often himself and it's not just an investment.
The local property manager picked us up from the airport and even stopped at the grocery store on the way to the condo so we could get provisions. We used the grill every day of our stay.
Pete allows the use of his car (a necessity because of the location) for a very reasonable $25 a day. We would definitely want to stay here if we come back to Sapphire Beach.
