Overview

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The overwhelming physical beauty of Sapphire Beach: 20 feet from the water's edge; the music of the surf to relax you; the constant tradewinds to cool you; white sands at your doorstep; a palm tree to call your own. An island vista uninterrupted from Atlantic to Caribbean--the ultimate in relaxation.

Situated at the windward (Eastern) end of St. Thomas, Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is just five minutes away from the nautical village of Red Hook, with the St. John and BVI ferry docks, the fabulous Marina Market with its gourmet wines, meats and deli, the succulent lobster to be found at many village restaurants, all kinds of interesting little shops and the constant party at Duffy's Love Shack.

GREETINGS FROM YOUR PERSONAL PROPERTY MANAGER:

The peacefulness of your vacation will be in the personal hands of Kathleen Browne and Gordon Jones, the Hammock in Heaven's onsite managers. Both of these unusual people will give you great comfort and security during your stay. Makes friends when you arrive and have friends for life. These are people you can count on.

YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME:

Featuring a huge wrap-around terrace and an uninterrupted view from Atlantic to Caribbean over St. John and the British Virgin Islands, your condominium is a premier unit at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina, a gated community with 24-7 security. (Many guests who have visited and seen what Sapphire Beach has to offer have said this unit occupies Sapphire's best location.)

The condominium is an extra-large (752-foot) fully air-conditioned studio that can be divided to create two sleeping areas by a sliding, louvered wood partition. The 'master' sleeping area presents a king-sized bed with a brand new Pillow-Top mattress providing exquisite sleeping comfort and, at the foot of the bed, a flat-screen HD, LCD cable TV. The living/dining area, with its brand new tropical furniture (including sofa bed), provides a second full-channel cable TV. Both areas have air conditioning and ceiling fans.

The kitchen is sleek and modern, with a full-sized fridge, stove and microwave. And the bath, with its Moen fixtures and double sinks, will delight you. The outside deck is a premier feature because it is so huge. It contains a dining area, a lounge area and, of course, the Heavenly Hammock pictured above.

THE SAPPHIRE BEACH MARINA (75 feet down the beach):

A wonderland of island water activities. Daysail to St. John, Caneel Bay and Trunk Bay. Cruise a catamaran to Jost Van Dyke in the BVI, home of Foxy's and the Soggy Dollar Bar. Speedboat to Virgin Gorda and The Baths. Dive PADI. Jetski. Fish the North and South Drops with the very best. Or just hang out and watch the resident school of 50-pound tarpon play in the Marina. (**The Owner has negotiated serious discounts on most of these excursions and adventures for your benefit.**)

FREE LOUNGE CHAIRS AND SNORKEL EQUIPMENT ON SAPPHIRE BEACH:

A one-mile, 'drop-dead' beach with every water toy imaginable. A two-tier freshwater pool. A bar and grille serving both the pool and at the main beach. Concierge and car rental services in the lobby. Complimentary lounge chairs and snorkeling equipment at the Dive Shop. Snorkel with turtles, rays and a kaleidoscope of fishes right off the beach.

Your satisfaction with his 'Hammock in Heaven' is his greatest pleasure. He knows St. Thomas well and can answer all of your questions.

This is a continuously evolving set of notes on everything you need to know to have a great time at Sapphire. It is based upon the Owner's experiences and those of his guests.

About Peter Rosenbaum

Peter Rosenbaum, the owner of your vacation condo, is dedicated to making your vacation perfect. He visits St Thomas often to maintain this condo in tip-top condition. Your satisfaction with his 'Hammock in Heaven' is his greatest pleasure. He knows St. Thomas well and can answer all of your questions.

Peter Rosenbaum purchased this condo in 2004

Why Peter Rosenbaum chose East End

Sapphire Beach is arguably the most beautiful beach venue in the Caribbean. On the breezy East End of St. Thomas, Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina lies at the center of the on-the-water and in-the-water activities for which St. Thomas, St. John and the British Virgin Islands are world-renowned. The very best of these activities start right in the Sapphire Beach Marina, 100' from my doorstep. Red Hook, a lazy nautical town, with shops, good restaurants, lively night life, not to mention being the ferry hub for service to St. John and the BVI, is but 3-4 minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

Guests who stay at my 'Hammock in Heaven' enjoy many unique amenities, including 1) the management services of of Kathleen and Gordon, free lounge chairs and snorkel equipment, free ensuite wifi, gift coupons providing significant discounts for adventures from the marina, free hurricane insurance, and an informative and personal booklet prepared by me especially for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The following comments were sent to me as a letter from guests who loved their visit. So many people email me with questions about things to do and adventures to undertake, that I think it is a very good idea to share interesting letters, even when they do not say much about the Hammocks in Heaven, one way or the other. Donna F.'s is such a letter. Hope you find it useful. Peter Rosenbaum







"Dear Peter,



We had a wonderful stay at Sapphire. Sam was a pleasure to meet and gave us quite a round about tour of St. Thomas on our way from the airport since we were right in rush hour. I am sure you are happy to have him in at your service. We also met his wife and two of the children when they were cleaning up one of your units and we went over and looked at both of the Hammocks in Heaven units for reference for future stays.



We couldn't have been more pleased with the location and amenities at Sapphire. We did take the New Horizon trip and it was wonderful. We only had eight people! It was quite personal. We had great calm sunny weather all week. We ate once at the grill and it was adequate and we enjoyed the pool and the Sunday Reggae party at the pavilion.



I loved having the Grocery Goddesses shop for us and have the frig full when we arrived. We brought some nonperishable food with us and we didn't need to go to the market all week. We did stop in the Marine Market in Red Hook and look at all the gourmet foods available and bought some rum to bring home. We managed fine with taxis and never even ventured into the shopping and cruise ship area, which seems like another world compared to the east side of the island.



We spent one day on St. John and went to the Annanburg (sp) ruins and Waterlemon Cay. But we did receive this one tip from a local helping with a wedding at the ruins. If you are going to post this letter on your website, I can't tell you where this magic spot is, because if everyone knew, the coral would undoubtedly suffer damage from too much observation. The anwer is: Go to Watermelon Cay, find a local, ask.



With so many beaches left unexplored I am sure that we will want to return and would definitely hope to find a time to use one of your condominiums. My friend, Jo Anne, was quite impressed with everything and might be contacting you in the future about a stay with her husband next spring.



Thank you again for offering us such great service that made our trip perfect in every way. We hope your up

Absolutely Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Before I review "Hammock inn Heaven", I just want to say how wonderful it was to work with the owner, Peter, during the planning of the trip and during our stay. I cannot think of a more attentive and responsive host to colloborate with for a vacation. Peter gave us many suggestions in his Island Guide and also many other suggestions to my questions. So to Peter, we want to give a big thanks! The condo was a wonderful place to call home for 10 days. Peter provides everything that anyone could need to make for a great vacation. We took advantage of Peter's deals with the dive shop and snorkeled on a number of occasions and it was alot of fun. The beach at Sapphire is a wonderful place to either just relax or take in the many water activities that are offered. We found ourselves doing both nearly everyday, but the relaxation under the sea greape trees in the afternoon was a particular treat. The proximity of Sapphire Beach to Red Hook made day trips to St John a breeze. We went over several times and fell in love with Cinammon Bay. We went to several others such as Trunk Bay and Honeymoon Beach, but found Cinammon beautiful (but all of them really are!). Peter's suggestion of a cruise on the Daydreamer catamaran to Jost Van Dyke was also a great one. We had a blast on the all day cruise and were mesmerized by the waters of White Bay. Finally, what will be hard to describe in words, is the spectacular view from the balcony at the condo. We found ourselves every evening just relaxing overlooking Pillsbury Sound just amazed at the views and it was also alot of fun to watch all the boats sailing by. We are still telling our friends and family about what you get to just marvel at while sitting in a comfy chair or laying in the hammock while enjoying a nice drink and the cool tradewinds which are so refreshing after a day in the sun. So two big thumbs up first to Peter and if you decide to stay at the Hammock in Heaven, you will not go wrong. We have vacationed at many other places around the globe and traveled many places in our 20 years in the military and I can assure you this was one of the most relaxing places we have been. Thanks Peter!

AWESOME VACATION AND RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5

If you appreciate falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves caressing the shores,waking up to the gentle lapping of waves on the shore, and the peace and serenity of being at one with nature Hammock Heaven is the place for you. Momentarily forgetting time and being soothed by the warmth of the sun. Be it laying in the lounge chairs on the shore or relaxing in the hammock on the shaded patio with paradise just steps away from the fully furnished, very welcoming condo. The condo itself has a very tropical feel and is fully equipped with all necessities. This was definitely one of my best vacation's ever. Peter was such a pleasure to work with. He made sure we had everything upon our arrival. I will be staying at the Hammock in the future!!!!!!

Pure Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We arrived here in the beginning of March and had the pleasure of staying here for 6 glorious days. Peter was a pleasure to work with and made sure all of questions were answered every time I emailed him. While we stayed in his condo everyone was very kind to us, it was clean and had everything that we needed. It was close to everything we needed, great food, the ferry to St. John and the worlds best beaches. We will definitely be staying here again!!

Hammock in Heaven #1

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a two week stay at "Hammock In Heaven" for the seventh time, we never get tired of it! It is just a wonderful experience from the views, the breeze, and the sound of the waves lapping up on the beach. As usual everything is clean and orderly. Kathleen, the one who is responsible for the care of Peter's unit, does an incredible job. Always as clean as possible, plenty of clean towels, and always available to assist. Peter starts our visit with an email with a very helpful list of " to do's" as well as useful phone numbers, restaurant reviews, shopping information, always useful. If any questions were to arise, Peter is always available to help. I can not say enough about "Hammock In Heaven", Kathleen, and the owner Peter, a real winning combination. I will again, as in the past, highly recommend a stay at " Hammock In Heaven", try it, you'll come back!

Honeymoon Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was my husband and I first trip as newlyweds, and first trip to St. Thomas. Our AWESOME and amazing experience we had wouldn't have been possible without Peter. He was so informative and helpful from the second we stepped off the plane. And also, his property was beyond our expectations. It is truly a hammock in heaven. I wouldn't have had our honeymoon any other way. Thanks Peter, we will see you soon!
