The second largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Thomas spans 32 square miles of tropical paradise and lies off the coast of Puerto Rico. The island embraces the Atlantic Ocean on the North side and the Caribbean Sea on the South. It is located in the northwest corner of the US Virgin Islands. Its mountainous peaks rise to 1,550 feet above sea level, providing breathtaking views from almost every direction. Drake's Seat is particularly famous for its vistas. The capital of the Virgin Islands is Charlotte Amalie, a charming and gracious town named in 1692 for the Queen of Denmark. A natural deep water port, it has one of the most stunning harbors in the world. It is also known as a mecca for duty-free shopping in the Caribbean Islands. Our newly remodeled condo is located on beautiful Sapphire Beach which boasts a wide white sand beach and great snorkeling.

St. Thomas can be a quiet retreat or a destination for visitors who enjoy the bustle of duty-free Shopping, fine dining, and exciting nightlife. Sports and activities are abundant on St. Thomas. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the George and Tom Fazio-designed Mahogany Run course. St. Thomas is also well known for its world-class yachting and sport fishing. A number of dive shops serve the island and provide a safe, comfortable scuba experience for beginners or experienced divers. Advanced certification courses are available here, as well as complete instruction for beginners

We retired early as we'd much rather travel than go to an office each day. We are by no means wealthy and owning apiece of paradise doesn't come cheaply. Renting our condo when we can't be here helps us meet expenses and we know our guests will love it here. Many return year after year and become part of our extended Sapphire family.

Marsha Evans-Mielke purchased this condo in 2007

After visiting this beautiful island twice on a cruise we decided a longer stay was in order. After coming a few years for a one week stay we decided that wasn't enough time either. So, the search was on. We looked at properties all over the island and decided no place but Sapphire would do as a second home. We haven't regretted our decision for a moment. The beautiful white sand beach that greets us each morning, the great snorkeling and million dollar views make this a place we love coming home to again and again.

Sapphire Beach has it all: beautiful white sand, great snorkeling and million dollar views. We have Seagrape trees for those who crave the shade, a wide sand beach for those who want the sun. There's a marina on site with charter boats for day or sunset sails and power boats for fishing or going to other islands or snorkeling spots. Or rent a pocket yacht and go on your own. There's also para sailing and jet skis available.

We had a lovely time at this condo. It is on one of the most beautiful beaches on St. Thomas and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. Your close to the water, the Dive shop has chairs, floats, and even wind surfers you can use for free, and the location is great. You can hear the waves from the condo, and you're only a 5 minute ride from red hook or a 2 minute walk from the Marina.
The condo had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The cooler that was provided was very handy on more than one occasion, and the bed was very comfortable. My husband and I would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: We love hearing our guests had a great time and found everything they needed in our condo. We provide free rentals of beach loungers, snorkel gear and floats. There should have been a charge for the wind surfer.

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is without a doubt the most gorgeous place we have ever been. The condo is very well-maintained and we really appreciate all the work the owners have put into it. It has a beautifully remodeled kitchen and bathroom. Nice new king size bed, you can leave the sliding door open and let the ocean waves to lull you to sleep. And, of course the balcony that is just yards away from the ocean. There was very nice snorkel equipment in the condo.

There is a bar and grill within walking distance and during the day a food truck just up the hill called Off The Grid that serves BBQ. If you want other dining options there is a quaint village called Red Hook a mile down the road with many dining options. This is also where you can catch the ferry to St. John. We rented a car so we took the car barge but you can still ferry over there and then take the bus around St. John. You can easily take the bus right from Sapphire Beach around the island too.

The Sapphire Marina offers many options for day sails, dinner cruises, jet ski rental, fishing trips, and more.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone interested in relaxation on the beach.
Owner's Response: It always thrills us to hear that our guests have enjoyed our condo as much as we do,

Still basking in the glow from a wonderful 10 day stay @ Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina.... Couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. The description on the website was totally accurate. The unit is clean,well maintained and recently renovated as well as very very comfortable. The view off the terrace is breathtaking & there's nothing like the sound of the surf to lull you to sleep every night. The beach is right outside & never crowded. The pool is beautiful with a fabulous view of St John & the surrounding smaller islands. Security personnel make regular rounds & are very friendly. The Sapphire Grill halfway up the hill @ Sapphire Villiage served delicious reasonable meals & great Happy Hour cocktails. Don't miss the conch fritters with the mango sauce. Yummy! Marsha, the owner was easily accessible & Jeanne,the resident manager was delightful.

Really enjoyed a day trip to St John on the ferry. The beaches there are the best I've ever seen. Coral world & Coki Point were also great. And there are tons of really good restaurants nearby. Especially enjoyed Pesce & Fishtails in Redhook.

The one thing I will do differently next year is rent a car,at least for a few days, now that I'm learning my way around the island. I would definitely recommend this island & this rental unit.

Why Sapphire Beach? Because it's the best one, of course. We've been vacationing in St. Thomas for many years. When it was time to buy we knew where we wanted to be. We've completely remodeled and updated; we know you'll be comfortable here. White sands and good snorkeling, a beautiful view of St. John, convenience to Red Hook and ferries to surrounding islands, close to shopping and fine dining and yet in a secluded gated resort. We chose the second floor so we could leave the sliders open at night and enjoy the sounds of the surf and the island breeze. Leave your daily stresses behind. We will greet you with a welcome basket of drinks & snacks. Guests staying 5 nights or more will have a mid-week towel exchange. Our guests enjoy free use of wi-fi, beach chairs and snorkel equipment.

Other Activities: Coral World is a short drive away. This is an educational fun day enjoyed by all ages. Of course St. Thomas is known world wide for the duty free shopping in Charlotte Amalie.

Golf: Mahogany Run Golf Course is well known. A convenient drive from Sapphire.

Zip lining is now available nearby.
