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.

ABOUT THE OWNER:

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.

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!

Beautiful and bare, just the way we like it!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay! The condo is literally 10 steps from the ocean! The property is beautiful and bare, just the way we wanted. Sleep, snorkel, read a book, meditate, reflect, etc- the place is ideal for anything. Hearing the sound of waves at night was the perfect way to end the day.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We just spent 2 weeks in Hammock in Heaven and had a wonderful time. We like peace and quiet and relaxing places and this was it. We snorkeled right off the beach in front of the condo and found it to be some of the best snorkeling in St. Thomas. The owner, Peter, was wonderful and gave us lots of information. My husband hurt his back before we left and I emailed Peter about my concern. He immediately emailed me back with numbers in case we needed them including an orthopedic doctor. This condo is not in the middle of everything so if you are there to party be prepared to rent a car or take taxi's. But if you are like us and like your vacation spot to be quiet then this is the place for you. I highly recommend Peter and his hammock in heaven

First visit to Island

  • 3 of 5
The condo its self was nice and the view from the balcony was amazing. Peter was a great help and very nice to work with. You definitely need a car to get around the island as there is no food or drinks close by outside business hours. Off the Grid was our favorite meal by far and extremely cheap for the amount of food you get. While Peters condo was nice the grounds were disappointing. We loved St. John and will be staying there on our next visit.

Awesome Oceanfront location

  • 4 of 5
You can't ask for a condo closer to the ocean than this. You could throw a rock from the deck and hit the ocean. The hammock is a wonderful, relaxing touch. We had a wonderful stay. That being said, you should be aware that if modern and luxury are what you are after, this might not be the unit for you. The unit is clean, comfortable, and functional. The decor, furniture, and kitchen are dated. For me, the location meant everything. I didn't need the other. Peter is very helpful and informative about the island. He promptly answers questions and give you suggestions and tips. You can snorkel right off the beach. Would recommend!

Everything I Was hoping for and more

  • 5 of 5
Oh yeah! This place is great. Peter has taken great pains to keep it up, and Sapphire Beach is beautiful beyond description. You could throw a rock into the water from the hammock, it's that close, and the views are mesmerizing. Condo is comfy, kitchen is fully functional, and three eateries are within walking distance.

The Dive shop is closed - but an easy work-around. Condo comes with snorkel gear and beach chairs. Bring an air mattress is you like. There's a food tent/ bar right on the beach near the pool, which is wonderful.

Sapphire is a quiet area, family friendly, lots of solitude, easy access to ferries from Red Hook.
