Sapphire Village is a nice place with magnificent views. It is close to Sapphire Beach and it has a small marina as well. We rented that condo so we can have a living room and separated bedroom. The pictures show you what you are going to get. It is absolutely basic furnished. We used it only to sleep in. St. Thomas and St. John beaches were our destinations for two wonderful weeks. If you are planning to stay inside you will not be enjoying any comfort or luxury. We had some problems with the air conditioner in the living room and the refrigerator that was making horrible noises. The owner was very helpful and responsive. He even offered us to use his other unit for free for one week till he was fixing the problems. The sofa bed in the living room is very uncomfortable to slip on. If you are not planning to use it you will be fine. There is a restaurant under the unit with nice Mahi-Mahi sandwiches and it was our beer provider. ? Sometimes they had nice life music…you keep the door open and enjoy it. The location of the village is the best. For $1/pp you can get to Red Hook in 5 min; take a ferry for $12/pp and in 20 min you are in St. John… We were there for the incredible snorkeling, golden sand, blue water and fun time. We had it all! Take a mosquito propeller with you everywhere. After sunset the mosquitos will eat you for dinner.

1. The refrigerator and a/c have since been replaced.
2. I cleared out and gave her a studio apartment in addition to the 1 bed for a week for free. You think she would have at least given me 4 stars for the effort.
3. There is a foam-posturepedic-type mattress add-on that makes the coach pretty comfortable. It's still a couch, not a bed, but I talked to her about it going in. She refused to try and/or use it.
3. I've rented 2 units for many years, and as you might get an inkling of from the review, she would not make my list of easy-going, easy to deal with clients. You have to understand when vacationing in the Caribbean that face-paced, I need it now, is not in the vocabulary. Both the fridge and the a/c were loaners because the next ship wouldn't be in til after New Year's-Home Depot won't have larger room a/c's in til March. As my reviews in this and my other unit state, I work very hard to fix any problems. It just may not be done in 5 minutes , or to absolute perfection. I think the reviewer would have been happier in a hotel, which would have suited her needs better, but that probably would have more than double her costs with me.
