About Lee Passios

I live in Connecticut with my 2 children..11 and 16.

Lee Passios purchased this condo in 2011

Why Lee Passios chose East End

There is something very special about Sapphire beach. Within 4 months of my first visit to sapphire i was back down buying a unit in building E

What makes this condo unique

I go down every 4/5 months and make sure the condo is up to my standards. It is very important to me that this feels like 'home' to my guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In response to this 1 bad review after 3 years of renting, my belief is that this couple are miserable to begin with. They stayed 2 hours. They never gave Sapphire a chance, and experienced its TRUE beauty. When they arrived there were keys in the door and the cleaning lady was next store. If they had bothered to bring a copy of their contract which contains all the pertinent information, they would have know this. I never pretended to be the Ritz- Carlton. This is a quiet waterfront condo that has its own security staff. The water is pristine with a thriving reef in front. Sapphire is a very special place. I am not sure what these renters standards are?! I am down there every 4 to 6 months. I bring quality towels, linens, knives etc. Just read all my past reviews and you will see how awesome Sapphire really is. Sincerely, Lee the owner

Lee was extremely correct when she said on our last day we would not want to come home! We had an amazing vacation during the off season in St. Thomas and St. John. The condo was great! We used the pool as well as snorkeled right outside the condo! We saw big beautiful fish and coral. Redhook is so close! A 2 minute car ride to all the ferries and restaurants. We are already planning our trip back to Lee's place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review the condo. I am glad that you mentioned off-season in St. Thomas. Many people don't know how awesome the weather is there during September and really all year round. I look forward to your return and hearing about your stay. Sincerely, Lee

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our stay at Sapphire Beach and we're already planning our next trip! The condo was perfect for me, my husband, and our almost 2 year old daughter. We loved being right on the beach and so close to restaurants and shopping. We spent our days exploring nearby beaches, relaxing in the pool, and trying different restaurants in Red Hook. One of our favorite eats was Off the Grid - a food truck parked right at the entrance of Sapphire Resort. Amazing BBQ and side dishes!
Working with Lee was a dream. We planned our trip on very short notice, and Lee was not only helpful, but genuinely excited to help us make the trip a reality. She even called the day we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed. Caryl, the property manager, was very friendly and even gave us some coupons to use on our visit to Coral World.
This was our first trip to St. Thomas, but it certainly won't be our last. We had a wonderful time and look forward to working with Lee in the future!

Unbelievably close to the water!

  • 5 of 5
We only had one criteria for a St. Thomas condo....close to the water. This condo is not only a few steps to the water but it is really nice. We ate every meal on the covered porch and hung out there at night watching the moon over St John. The beds were super comfortable and the big bathroom was perfect for our teenage daughters. We loved how the condo was so stocked with everything from candles to spices! Truly home away from home. Building E is the best....quiet beach, great snorkeling and best breeze. The resort is very quiet. Not a lot of amenities available but that was fine with us because it meant less cruise ship people stopping there. The beach in front of A was great for swimming as was the pool. We would definitely go back to Sapphire and we would DEFINITELY stay at this condo again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 10 days in Dec. 2011. My wife, Daughter, Sister in law and Myself. went all over the USVI and BVI from this condo. Red Hook is very close and you can use the ferry to go over to St. John which is what you are looking at from your patio. Moon setting over St. John was Great! This was the only time I have ben to the USVI and I will never forget it. Lee is a very nice person and honest the day long. She just wants you to be as happy as she is when she is there and we were. Thank You Lee. When you are in the VI you must understand that things are a lot slower and all is not perfect like in the upscale hoods of the U.S. Thank God! Don't read too much into what some might say this place is great. The funny thing is, we did not swim in the water until the last day of our stay and found it to be the best snorkeling of all and that includes most of the VI including the BVI which I love. Rent this condo without any fear at all and let the place enlighten you! I have not spoken to Lee since our trip 2 years ago, I'm thinking of returning and I read this review and had to put in my 2 cents. btw I have stayed in many places in My 54 years on the planet and I would pick this place above all of them. Thanx Lee.....Steve

Never Again

  • 1 of 5
When I arrived I found I could not get ahold of the property manager. I was given the wrong phone number by Lee. I asked at the main office and they would not help me. I tried to call Lee and got no answer. My wife was really starting to wonder what to do. I started knocking on doors and found a maid who told me the keys were in the door. When we finally got in the condo it was what the pictures showed. Then we went outside. The pictures of the beach in front of the condo do not show all of the rocks.The beach was horrible. We could not even walk down to the water here were so many rocks. The condo building next door was under renovation. There were workers and caution tape. The whole Sapphire Beach Condos were very run down and in need of major repairs. The beach was nasty dirty, the parking lot was horrible, the tennis courts were unusable and the pool was in need of repair. My wife and daughter and I did not even stay one night. We did not feel safe as there were very few people around and the parking lot was poorly lit. I was hoping to have a beach like at Magens Bay or Trunk Bay. Everyone said that Sapphire Beach was wonderful but we were very disappointed.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 6 nights here on our honeymoon. We have never rented from VRBO and probably would have ended up at an expensive hotel. Good thing we looked around and found this condo. The price to stay here is a steal. Everything about the condo is amazing. The pictures and listing description are 100% accurate.

The condo is extremely well kept. All the amenities are covered. Fridge, stove, oven, coffee maker, microwave. Like new bathroom. Nicely decorated. Not that you should be watching TV, but there are 2 in excellent working order. We ate a couple of meals in the condo just like we would at home. We saved money doing so, as the restaurants any where on the island can be a bit pricey.

The condo is situated on the quiet corner of Sapphire Beach and Marina and gets plenty of cool trade wind breeze. The view is one of the best on the island. You have an amazing view of St. John and some of the BVIs. We rented a car and drove to Bongolo Bay, Magens Bay, and Coki Beach. Sapphire Beach was the best. Private, quiet, amazing snorkeling. Every time we went to another beach, we wished we would have stayed at the condo. The snorkeling is just steps from the door. We saw squid, a huge sting ray, and plenty of species of fish.

The condo is mere yards from the marina where you can charter a boat to St. John or the BVI. As a side note, we highly recommend the New Horizons II that goes to the BVI each day right from the Sapphire Marina. The condo is also extremely close to Red Hook, not even 2 minutes down the road. Open taxi is 1 dollar each way. Very nice restaurants (The Cellar and Coco Blue).

The owner was extremely responsive. She was very quick to respond to our request to rent, even while stuck in the middle of a snow storm. The week prior to arriving we were so rushed that we didn't get the information about how to get into the property. We called the owner who picked up immediately and got us into the property in seconds. Absolutely no problems.

We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else on the island and we would love to stay here again!!
