East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom +2 Convertible beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Welcome to Crystal Cove on the east end of St. Thomas. It is the perfect blend of Caribbean beauty and beaches and the United States of America.

Now get ready for one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see, ONLY STEPS FROM YOUR DOOR!!! Sapphire Beach boasts a beautiful panoramic view of St. John and other islands and keys as you stand on a white sandy beach under the shade of sea grape trees. It has the most calm, warm and crystal clear waters you will encounter in the Caribbean. Better yet, the snorkeling is about the best anywhere, and you will regularly meet sea turtles, coral and a countless variety and abundance of reef fish. A beach attendant will set up your complimentary beach chair and make sure you are comfortable. If that’s not enough, you can swim in our private swimming pool or play tennis on our own lit courts. And yes, we supply towels, snorkel equipment and tennis rackets.

Our spacious 1,000 square feet, one bedroom apartment is Unit D-36. We feel that our location provides the best combination of privacy and proximity to the beach, which is only steps away. Our kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator, small appliances, microwave, dishes, tableware and cooking utensils so you can enjoy a homemade meal on the porch while overlooking our beautiful beach. Our living room is adorned with comfortable couches and chairs and cable TV and DVD player. We also have a nice collection of movies for your enjoyment. Our bedroom has luxurious a king size bed, and there are two pull our couches with queen beds in the living room and enclosed porch. There are two full bathrooms, fully stocked with towels, and yes, we provide beach towels, too, and there is a washer/dryer available on the property.

Since you are at this website, you already know the benefits of vacationing on St. Thomas, with its wonderful shopping, sightseeing and dining. We are ten minutes from Redhook, boasting at least a dozen restaurants and the ferry to St. John. Upon booking, we will send you our own “St. Thomas Tour,” detailing the apartment, how and where to snorkel, and our favorite restaurants.

Other services are available for an extra fee, including private airport pickup, personal attendant grocery shopping, extra housekeeping, car rentals, wind surfing, scuba, jet ski and more.

About Jerry Style

My name is Jerry Style.

I am a tax and financial planner. Obviously, I work very hard during the winter. But, that is to your benefit, because when I am not enjoying my piece of paradise, YOU CAN!!!

I live in New York, but get to Crystal Cove whenever I can. I love its relaxed atmosphere, the beach and especially the snorkling.

I'm not much of a shopper, but I have purchased some beautiful jewelry there for my girlfriend at very reasonable prices. Shopping there is actually interesting, but don't tell my girlfriend that.

Jerry Style purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jerry Style chose East End

When the real estate broker took me to Crystal Cove, I could not believe my eyes!!! Never did I think that I would own a piece of paradise like this!!! But, as it worked out, I bought it, and someday, maybe 7 or eight years from now, I will retire here. In the mean time, I go whenever I can, and rent it out when I cannot make it there.

What makes this condo unique

The great things about Crystal Cove are many:

- It is the USA, and you don't even need a passport to get there. We of course use the US dollar.

- It is the Caribbean, and the temperature here is remarkably consistant. The highs and the lows from the winter to the summer vary by only about 5 degrees.

- There is a natural air conditioning at Crystal Cove, with a trade wind that constantly blows gently across your skin. It is the Caribbean, so rain is always in the forecast, but wait a few minutes, and the rain will be gone.

- Our Unit is D-36. It is as close to the beach as you can get. However, since the pathways from the other units lead in differing directions, D-36 is one of the most secluded and private units in the complex.

- The snorkling is among the best I done throughout the Caribbean.

- There are many great restaurants in nearby Red Hook.

- The best meals we have though are those we prepare and dine on our porch overlooking our magnificent beach with romantic music playing in the background.

- The staff, both management, beach attendents and maintenance crew are all spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jerry,

Words are not enough to thank you for the wonderful stay at your beautiful condo on St. Thomas! It made our honeymoon very special. Not only was the setting beautiful, but the people, your friends, matched that beauty with their warmth and friendship. You laid the groundwork for how they accepted us with open arms.

Norma was like a mother hen to both of us, especially when she went above and beyond the normal call of duty. As you know, I had a heart issue and had to be taken to the hospital. The hospital care was spectacular, even better than our hospital in New York. But Norma stayed with us and saw to it that we received the best of care. She brought us blankets, made sure we were well fed, and even arranged for our transportation back to the condo when I was discharged.

Norma, her friends and her staff are wonderful examples of what the world could be and should be like.

And even though our trip got off to this rough start, the remainder of our trip was wonderful! The condo was warm and comfortable. The staff on the property were friendly and accommodating. And Sapphire Beach is beautiful beyond compare.

Jerry! Thank You!!! Thank You!!! Thank You!!!

With our love,

George and Connie

(Owner's note: George and Connie are both in their 80's. They just got married and chose our place to celebrate their honeymoon. They are a wonderful couple!)

Upstairs condo at Sapphire Beach, Crystal Cove

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic!! Would highly recommend this to anyone. Working with the owner was great. Very nice, clean condo. Would definitely request this same condo again. The management on the property was excellent too, if we had any problem or concern they were on it immediately! The beach is so close. Quality, affordable condos near Red Hook, like this one, are the best and safest places to be on the island. This is our 2nd year in coming here and this is where I would prefer to stay for sure!

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Paradise welcomed our family!!! Sapphire Bay West at Crystal Cove was truly a Beautiful & Breathtaking location just as it was described by it's owner, Jerry. Condo unit was situated literally by Sapphire Beach with it's welcoming blue/green waters. Condo was perfect for our family, unit was well maintained, very roomy, and had everything needed at your finger tips. Besides the beautiful beach we also took advantage of the quiet pool which was very big with lots of lounge chairs and tables. We also used the tennis courts right next to the pool. Highly recommend eating at Duffy's Love Shack (delicious food & drinks) and Fattys (quick lunch) in Red Hook. For a fun filled evening with entertainment and all you can eat Caribbean food, must go to Iggies at Bolongo Bay. It was definitely memorable and you won't regret it. Coki Beach has the clearest blue water and right next to it is Coral World (similar to an aquarium) which the children enjoyed. A ferry trip from Red Hook to St. John is also a must where we ate breakfast at Jakes (very economical) and dinner at the Banana Deck simply delicious. Then off to Trunk Bay where you are literally in a magical paradise, the beach is to die for with clear blue water and white sand (it was a hit with the children). I can go on and on, but I left the best for last, Jerry was definitely accommodating to all of our needs and very prompt with responding to our inquiries and we loved all the write-up and helpful tips he provided about St. Thomas. In addition, our hats off to Norma who was so gracious with her services and made sure we had our groceries at the condo upon our arrival and checked in with us from time to time to make sure all was well. We definitely recommend this Piece of Paradise to all vacationers. THANK YOU JERRY..YOUR FRIENDS FROM NEW YORK CITY...

Great condo, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Good support from Jerry the owner. He answered all my questions quickly and accurately. He also has a little orientation pamphlet that was very helpful.

The condo itself was actually bigger than I was expecting from the pictures. Big bedroom and roomy living room - two bathrooms. We used both pull-out couches and everyone (myself, wife, two kids - 10 & 13) slept comfortably. The pull-out beds had typically thin mattresses, but there was an extra mattress available to double-up on one of the beds. For the other bed, we put the couch cushions under the mattress for added padding. I thought this made both pull-out beds equally comfortable, but my kids fought over who got the double mattress. Either the double mattress is especially comfortable or my kids just like to fight.

The beach is amazing! Perfect white sand, gentle wave action, not too crowded, and incredibly peaceful. The grape trees (is that what they're called?) provide some much needed shade. There is a reef off to one side for snorkeling and some sea grass that provides habitat for sea turtles. The view of the other islands is superb. Diane is the beach attendant and is friendly and helpful.

It's also close to the Sapphire Bay Marina. We walked to the marina twice to catch a fishing charter (Double Header) and a sail/snorkel trip (Nightwind). Both were great.

One drawback: There's a burger stand on the beach open for lunch, but no restaurant nearby for dinner. Sure, you can cook in the condo (and we grilled freshly-caught fish on the Weber - fantastic!), but it's your vacation, and eating out is part of the experience. It would be nice to have one within walking distance.

When it came to rental car/taxis, we debated for a while before deciding to rent a car. I'm glad we did. Certainly if you stick to the beach/marina and cook your own dinners, you won't ever need to leave. But we found ourselves running around almost every day: heading to the grocery store, going out to a restaurant, checking out some touristy thing. Having a car was a big help.

I would absolutely stay here again. It was a great condo with everything we needed and a fantastic location.

Excellent trip and stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in St. Thomas and loved staying at Crystal Cove!

The unit was exactly as described in the listing and the photos were all accurate.

The end unit was close to the beach with a great view off the porch, plus it was quiet, which we loved. Having all the necessary kitchen utensils was great, as was having use of the grill. The snorkel equipment and floats, plus the chairs and the cooler, were a great bonus.

The owner had recently purchased a new TV as well, which was just the icing on the cake.

We had a wonderful trip and can't wait to return!

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly what we were looking for. Clean, spacious, a gorgeous view and a couple steps from the beach. Not to mention the convenience of being next to Red hook for dining and entertainment. Will definitely try to make it back next year!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo! The condo is an end unit on the second floor and a few yards from the beach, with a great view from the condo of the ocean. The condo itself was spacious, and it was really convenient to have two bathrooms. The pull-out couch in the living room worked well for one to sleep on, as was the king bed in the bedroom. There were lots of utensils, dishware, and cookware. The air conditioning was great to have. We used the snorkel equipment, which came in really handy. Having a car was important to us so we could explore the island, and parking was not an issue. It was also nice to have laundry facilities on the property, which we used ($3 to wash and $3 to dry per load). The owner was great to work with and provided a really nice summary of things to do and see. All in all, it was a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it to others.

Sapphire Beach offers some of the best snorkeling in the US Virgin Islands. There are three separate coral reefs loaded with tropical fish and even octopus! The coral of many varieties abound, including brain coral, elk horn coral, pilar coral and much more. Centered between the coral reefs is a large grassy area where green sea turtles graze all day long, and you will see sting rays and even our favorite, the Spotted Eagle Ray.

There is no need to bring your own snorkle equipment. WE SUPPLY SNORKEL EQUIPMENT OF VARYING SIZES.

And all of this is just a few steps from the condo!!!
