There is too much I want to write as to how beautiful this place is, I could write a novel that goes on forever........ As many have said, the pictures you see on any site of Sapphire Beach and especially the Sapphire web cam, do not do this unit justice. You are in the best possible location you can imagine! You are out of the crowd on heavy cruise ships days, but can "people watch" all of them if you want from each of the two floors, but the passengers are all at buildings A, B, and a little at the start of C. It is so easy to have your own "private" like beach, or go down and mingle with people on the heavy cruise ship days. There is only about 2 heavy cruise ships days for a week and you really do not notice the difference, PERFECT location! The beach for buildings D and E is not nearly as nice. If you want complete quiet go to D and E, but from this corner unit of C you have EVERYTHING! Views, people to mingle with if you want, people watching, snorkeling, quiet if you want...... it's just perfect!
I am not a big time experienced world traveler yet, but I went with 3 others who are. When we first walked in and walked out to the HUGE balcony of the first floor they were all in awe. I still hear them talking on the phone to people about how they could sit there forever on the deck and just look out all day at the beauty! (this includes all of the Hawaiian islands, Aruba, Bahamas, Australia, Majorca and many other places)
The silverware/cooking utensils are stocked more than my kitchen at home and I like to cook!
Red Hook is so close!
Ferries to go almost anywhere are right in Red Hook, so close!
3 seniors in my group, 2 very unactive, do not let the 3rd and 4th floor scare you. You really only go up 1 set of steps to get in and it is very easy!
Very safe snorkeling, even when the waves/wind is up! If you just take a step or two in with goggles on and stick your head underwater you will see colorful fish, lots of them! If you want to go out more it is just as easy and you walk right in and go! It is quite amazing for a walk in beach, nothing like Florida, including the keys. I was amazed with what you can see just knee high!
"THE VIEW"! Unreal, can't state it enough but I have plenty of pictures and video!
The balcony on the first level is HUGE and WONDERFUL!
Duffy's Love Shack, a shack in the middle of stores, some of the best flavors you will find in food!
