East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condominium, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Start with what Frommer’s Guide says are Sapphire Beach’s 'Jawdropping Views' and you won't get closer to the water than this listing unless you rent a boat.

Add the taste of two New York designers whose clients, past and present, include Ralph Lauren, Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani. Vintage bamboo furniture with white upholstery, blue and white Chinese porcelains, white tile floors and a framed collection of 1940's black and white sailing photos. With the key component of total privacy from passersby or neighbors, and the luxury of enough space to allow you to catch some quiet moments completely to yourself.

A two level duplex with connecting mahogany staircase, each level with it's own terrace, floor to ceiling 14 foot wide walls of glass with breathtaking views and pure white curtains pulled to the sides. No children, unfortunately, allowed.

From inside the apartment, you will not see anything but turquoise and sapphire blue water - as if you are sailing on an ocean liner with your own balconies. The photos tell the story.

Downstairs, a comfortable living room with an optional sleeping couch and armchair, an indoor dining table for four, a desk and bureaus. Sliding mahogany doors can separate your kitchen area. A downstairs bathroom comes complete with two-sink vanity and shower. Generous baskets filled with luxurious Polo beach towels. Large new Flatscreen cable TV with DVD and video and all channels. A Bose dock for your i pod.

Outside on the 11 X 14 foot terrace, three chaises lounges with total privacy. No one looking down from balconies above you or up from the beach below, allows morning to midday sunbathing with total privacy. The downstairs terrace has a tropical mosquito net to allow sleeping outdoors in the moonlight if you wish to really live out your island fantasy.

An outdoor breakfast/lunch table for two. Oiled louvered tropical wood side walls add the luxury of Caribbean style. Constant cooling tradewind breezes.

Upstairs, the Master Suite at the top of the mahogany stairs is crowned with a 18 foot high cathedral ceiling. Hurricane lamps, white ceiling fan, vintage bamboo furniture, tropical wood doors, blue and white Chinese porcelains and upholstery, a black and white vintage sailing image gallery, and a huge king size bed to get lost in. Second Flatscreen TV, DVD, video, free WIFI. Another wall of floor to ceiling glass with extraordinary views of the British Virgin Islands, St. John and the Cays, not to mention the turquoise and sapphire water of your imagination and the covers of travel magazines.

Each evening, open a great bottle of wine, tax free in the USVI, go out on the upstairs terrace to watch the sunset coloring the clouds and the moonrise over British Tortola. After dark, light the candles inside and on the terraces, turn off the lights, and sit listening to the waves below. Watch the lights glittering on the islands, the ferries going to and from Cruz Bay, the glow of the restaurants at Caneel Bay, a million stars above you. Bliss.

Everything that you could wish to do will be waiting for you each morning. Swimming on your half mile sugar white beach in turquoise water. Snorkeling on the reefs directly under your terraces. Floating in your inner tubes. Sunning on your terrace chaises or by the magnificently sited fresh water pool. Reading in the shade of the palm trees. Wandering the docks of the marina looking at yachts and talking to the fishermen back with their day’s catch.

About Owner/Manager

My family has owned a home on St Thomas since the 1960's up on Crown Mountain in Caret Bay. My wife and I saw Sapphire on a visit to see family, and we realized that the 'hotel' was in fact condos. The search was on. We are both designers and have poured time and money into the place. Our guests appreciate what we have done and say so in their wonderful reviews.

Owner/Manager purchased this condo in 2005

Why Owner/Manager chose East End

No other beach on St Thomas has our views, and the ability to have a condo literally right on the sand 30'-0' from the water's edge was just irresistible for us. Plus the separation of sleeping and living was important. We didn't want to spend ALL of our time every day in the same room. Sometimes privacy is a great thing.

What makes this condo unique

We think the most magical quality of the condo is that you are above the ocean and so close that you literally look down into the clear water and see fish at times. That is unreal. Plus the magnificent colors of everything. The view is astounding, and the endless soft sound of the waves on the sand is totally relaxing. And there is EVERYTHING to do here. Shopping in Charlotte Amalia is legendary for it's bargains, restaurants that are amazing in their range of cost and atmosphere, hiking, kayaking, snorkeling that is the best on St Thomas right on our beach, swimming, a magnificently sited pool, beautiful buildings and architecture, 18'-0' high mahogany ceiling in the bedroom, two terraces that are pure heaven with cool breezes and simply unbeatable views. Total privacy from anyone seeing you on the terrace or in the condo.....

The whole thing is just too much to describe. We love it here.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in many different condos on Sapphire (the best beach in St. Thomas) because our son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren live there. We feel that we have now found a home away from home and will stay at this fabulous condo every trip.
There are wonderful design details, great colors and the view is amazing!

absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
i can't even say enough about our week stay at Peter and Beverly's Sapphire Beach condo...!! location, perfect...everything inside, perfect...the weather while there, perfect...the snorkeling, perfect... this condo is stocked with every single thing you can think of, including candles and binoculars!! and of course snorkeling gear and noodles! there is nothing they haven't thought of!! the inside is as beautiful as the outside!! we so loved our nights on the balcony sipping wine or fruity frozen drinks made in the best blender i've ever had on vacation, candles flickering, the sound of gentle waves and the lights of St. John in the distance...this is not a commercial looking beach..it's small, feels personal, and is absolutely gorgeous... i leterally cried almost every morning there at the sheer beauty of it all... just watching the pelicans diving every morning was another favorite way to start our day...it was also super easy to catch the $1 safari into Red Hook to catch the ferry into St. John, as well as just enjoying what became some of our favorite places right in Red Hook...Peter was always very quick and helpful to answer any question i had before our arrival and having Smitty pick us up from the airport, stop at the grocery store, and take us back the day of departure was also just perfect!! this was truly a magical vacation for us and we so can't wait to go back!! we have caught island fever and i don't want a cure!!

Truly Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I decided to go a little off season in September. We had the most fabulous time, your home is awesome and the view awe inspiring!

We love all of the candles, used 'em out on the terrace the 1st night we arrived. We dined on sandwiches we bought at O'Hare & a bottle of wine purchased at Pueblos on the way from the airport. We got a little lost but stopped to ask directions...we love our little adventures. Although I highly recommend passing Sapphire Beach and going to Food Center instead.

We snorkeled every day, right out front on Sapphire Beach 3-4 days, Magen's Bay 1 day, a snorkeling charter, then a day on St John's beaches. We snorkeled with turtle, barracuda, sting ray (we were careful). This was exactly what we were looking for. We cannot wait to come back!

Thank so much for everything Peter!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
This condo is truly wonderful! Beautiful decor, clean, fully stocked and in a perfect location. The bed is comfortable, the towels are fluffy and the Redken hair products are a nice touch! The views from the two balconies are breathtaking. At night the lights shine on St. John and it's so gorgeous. Sapphire beach is also gorgeous, so many shades of blue and crystal clear. The pool at the condo is a nice size and overlooks the ocean. I loved the Banana Cabana that is in between two of the condo buildings, delicious food and drinks! My husband and I visited for our one year wedding anniversary and it was the best vacation we've ever been on. Couldn't have asked for anything more perfect than this condo! We definitely hope to come back!

Stylish Condo in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
After searching for hours for the perfect place to stay while in St. Thomas, we came across the unit owned by Peter and Beverly. We knew immediately that this stylishly decorated condo with a "Pottery Barn Look" was the one for us. The pictures do not do it justice. When we arrived and walked in, it was everything and more than we had expected. My husband and I travel often and we have never stayed anywhere that was so well stocked with every comfort imaginable. Even in the nicest hotels, no one has ever been more concerned than Peter with our travel details. He made certain everything was taken care of throughout our stay, thus allowing us to relax and enjoy. The view from the upstairs balcony is magnificent and the water is so close you feel that you are on the bow of a boat. We spent mornings at the pool and afternoons on Saphire Beach. With it's white sand and turquoise water it is quite irresistible! We never got tired of the beautiful view and pinched ourself often to make sure that we were not dreaming we were in paradise.

Wonderful week on the beach...

  • 5 of 5
I took my two grown children and my grown grandson. We had a great week. The attention to detail really made a difference in navigating a new place and making each day enjoyable. My girls gave it a 10. Would recommend to everyone. It's a beautiful place.
