This condominium has been owned by our family which has been enjoying the magic of Sapphire for over fifty years. It was largely renovated and offered for rental for the first time in late 2007. The condo is located just minutes from Red Hook where you can find groceries, restaurants, shopping and access to the ferries which can whisk you away to St. John or the British Virgin Islands.
The condo is only one hundred and fifty steps from the front door to the beach. While on the beach you can see St John and the British Virgin Islands. Because the unit is on the lower level, when you arrive you park at the rear of the unit and bring your luggage and groceries into the unit by walking about thirty-five feet from your car and up just four steps, rather than lugging them around to the front of the building and up a flight of stairs
The unit retains the original floor plan, except that the original front porch has been enclosed and now expands the already large living/dining room, and a large fenestration has been cut between the kitchen and living/dining area.
The unit contains its own front-loading washer and matching dryer. For drying wet towels and such, there is a solar powered 'clothesline' just outside the rear door. There are two televisions, and 'basic digital cable' (a total of approximately twenty channels) is included. Local phone service and Wi-Fi internet access are included.
In late 2007, the unit was 'stripped', repainted, partially redecorated, and many improvements made. The following were replaced with brand new units: refrigerator, oven, gas stove, air-conditioner compressor, bedroom and living room ceiling fans, bedroom mattress, front and rear doors,shower fixtures, and almost all kitchen utensils and small appliances.
Refinished furniture was obtained to replace most of the original living room furniture, and the frame of the Murphy bed was repainted. The original 'Futon' has been reupholstered. There is a 52 inch TV in front and and a 19 i inch TV in the bedroom two DVD players (one Blu-Ray), and and two stereo systems.
The locks have been removed from all closet doors, except for one-half of one closet.. We do our best to keep 'starter supplies' of non-perishable essentials in the unit, so you won't have to begin your stay buying things like coffee filters and dish detergent.
Please note: Because we keep improving B~11 faster then we can take new photographs, most of the photographs are somewhat obsolete. The only change that may be the slightest bit controversial is that we have removed the dining table by the front window which served primarily as a workbench for Steve when we were in B~11—the round dining table accommodates five without any problems.. This enabled us to move futon-like couch from the bedroom to under the front window. There were two reasons for this. First, it will sometime allow more rational sleeping arrangements when there are five occupants. Secondly, It frees up space in the bedroom which Steve will use to construct a “storage wall unit” which will also have space for a larger television. I am sure that you will agree that all other changes that we have made are a functional and/or aesthetic improvement.
To ensure continued enjoyment by all occupants, smoking and pets are not permitted.
