We had a great 10 days here at Sapphire Village. First off thank you for having coffee here so we didn't have to run to the store straight off. The condo was exactly as we expected. There was a beautiful view from the patio. Down below is the Sapphire bar and grill where the food, drink and people were awesome. They have a pool right outside the condo but we chose to go to the pool by the bar, always some friendly residents hanging around. Of course the beach here was beautiful.
Gail (condo owner) was fab about emailing and giving advice on local things to do. I did get a painkiller from where she suggested on the beach and it was very good, he even had a little grater for the nutmeg that goes on top of the drink.
Red Hook is a short drive from the condo where there are some great bars and restaurants. We really liked Pesce, ate there 3 times...You can catch the ferry here also for $12.00 RT to St John, make sure you do this it is breathtaking and Trunk Bay is beyond words. Gail keeps a lot of brochures for excursions and dining in the condo for you to look at.
You can either rent a car or take the safari around the island which is very cheap, only problem is it only goes in one direction. We did both; we rented the car right on the beach at the condo, very convenient. There were quite a few places closed at this time of the year though, but we didn't mind because there is still plenty that stayed opened. Our favorite bar was Fatty's in Red Hook, real comfortable and bartenders were really fun...food was great too. On Monday they make BBQ ribs right on the grill on their patio. We happened to be there on Monday and the owner was outside grilling away.
I thought it was sweet that she wanted some kind of contact upon arrival to assure you made it and got inside. Gail you have the best sheets we have ever slept on (1000 thread count).
The only advise I would give anyone is to bring a big bottle of Off or Skin So Soft. Holy cow did the mosquito's and no see' ems love me. We did leave our leftover bottle of Off under the bathroom sink. It was a little pricey here so buy a bottle before you come down, or use what we left.
I would defiantly come back here and recommend to friends. I can't post any pics here so I am also posting on Trip Advisor soon, my reviewer name is booboolicious! I will post it under Sapphire Village,so check it out so you can see for yourself.
Thanks again Gail we really had a great time!!!
Joey and Jeanette
