The resort is located five minutes away from the shops, diverse restaurants and ferries located in Red Hook. This first floor condo is fully air-conditioned and features a king sized bed, a living area with pull-out couch, a fully equipped efficiency kitchen and your own private balcony. The bedroom area can be partitioned off for privacy if you wish. You are on the beach and steps to the water, for swimming, sunning and fantastic snorkeling.

Sapphire Resort is not the Ritz Carlton (and priced accordingly) but if you are looking for great water sports, the Marina at Sapphire Beach Resort is the only full Marina at a resort on St. Thomas. The local dive shop Dive In offers certification for beginners to Divemaster, one and two tank drive trips as well as tank and snorkel gear rental.

New Horizons also offers a day sail snorkel adventure as well as sunset and dinner cruises. S/V Nightwind offers custom day sail trips for your family and you can also rent a power boat from Pocket Yachts to create your own adventure. Foxy’s and the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands are the places to party on the weekend. From there you can boat over to the William Thornton (or Willie T’s), a floating ship at Norman Island for drinks and dancing. Be sure to bring your passport if you are planning to go to the BVI’s.

Red Hook is just a few minutes away where you have your choice of over 15 restaurants and night spots. From elegant to ultra casual you’ll find fine dining, quaint bistros and burger shacks such as The Cellar, XO Wine Bar, the Big Kahuna, Duffy’s Love Shack, East End Café, Molly Malones and many others. You will want to spend at least a couple of nights finding just the right place for you.

I moved to St. Thomas twenty years ago, and decided to stay. I have a Civil Engineering and Land Surveying business on St. John and do design and construction management projects on St. John, St. Thomas and St. Croix. I go back to the states frequently but I usually am ready to come back to Paradise after a week or so away.

I bought a condo at SBR&M because it has the nicest beach and views on St. Thomas. It is also the one resort with a full service marina on the property. I live in Nazareth and use the Condo at Sapphire for friends and family vacations as well as rent it.

I am very spoiled because I live here year round and don't stay in the Condo at Sapphire but I do go to the beach to swim and snorkel and go fishing with Double Header. We always do very well, the captains are very good a lot of fun to fish with.

If you like the beach, this is the place!

  • 5 of 5
I won’t repeat all the positive comments so far, but can confirm they’re all true. Greg has a great, clean little place here and you can’t beat the location. He’s stocked a good supply of books if it’s just a few days on the beach catching a tan, and if you didn’t bring your own gear, he’s got a good stash of snorkel gear in the closet. Another huge plus, the snorkeling is fantastic here right off the beach. Our routine: wake up, snorkel, eat lunch, lie in the sun, snorkel, lie in the sun with a cocktail, hit the pool, head into town to find dinner – repeat 5 times.
For some time out on the water, along with Greg’s recommendations for charters, I’ll add Yacht Nightwind which is also just across the parking lot in the marina.
If you don’t rent a car, be sure to get a cab to take you the ¾ mile into Red Hook (cabs are not a problem here), stop in at Island Time Pub, split a salad and some wings and take home a 16” pizza for breakfast. Food Center also has some good roasted chicken as well as some local favorite dishes.
We had a great time Greg, thanks for the perfect week. Be back in a couple months.

Perfect Honeymoon!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time traveling to the Caribbean and was extra special because it was our honeymoon. We were very fortunate to have stumbled upon this wonderful condo for our stay; we couldn't have found a better place for the price.
The best thing about this condo is the absolutely gorgeous view you are treated to every time you look out the window facing the beach area; it truly feels like you are in the middle of paradise. Sapphire Beach is beautiful and the water is perfect for snorkeling. The pool is one of the best we have ever been in, and we often went out to lounge with a few drinks for hours at a time.
The condo itself had everything we needed:
• The kitchen has a dual cook top, microwave, full size refrigerator with freezer, toaster, toaster over, and coffee maker. It is also stocked with plates, bowls, cups, mugs, silverware, pots/pans, and utensils. This was a huge plus because we didn’t have to worry about where to go to eat if we wanted to lounge around all day.
• The bathroom has dual sinks and a modern dual headed shower that can fit two people.
• King size bed with extra pillows
• Patio area with table and chairs. Was great to sit out any time of day to drink, eat, and enjoy the view. Patio area also has a concrete water trough so you can wash the sand off your feet before entering the condo.
One thing to note is that there is not a “restaurant” on site. There is a small snack stand, however, but they are only open until around 4:00. They do serve drinks too!
Red Hook is a quick 5-10 minute drive and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. The first day we were there we went to a few grocery stores to pick up supplies for sandwiches, drinks, etc.
Another plus is that there is a Budget car rental desk on the property, so you can rent a car for a day here and there if you need it. We found that it was cheaper to rent the car for the week. We highly recommend getting a car when staying here. It allowed us freedom to tour the island at our own pace without having to worry about when a “safari” bus would drive by. It is also cheaper to rent a car in St Thomas and then take a car ferry over to St John for the day, rather than taking a people ferry over and renting a car while on St John.
Overall, we definitely recommend this unit to anyone considering staying here. When we get the chance to come back it is definitely on the top of our list!!!

Always a Great Visit at Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5
This was our sixth time staying at Sapphire Beach. It was our first stay with Greg, but definitely not our last. The condo was just exactly what we expected and Greg was very helpful in answering our questions and helping us make plans. I can recommend this property for a comfortable stay for anyone that is interested.

Our third perfect vacation in this condo on Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5
This was our third time to stay in this unit. At the risk of sounding redundant, I have to write that we just returned from another perfect vacation in this condo at Sapphire Beach. Nothing compares to staying right on this beautiful beach. The snorkeling is fantastic. Water sports and boat charters are just down the beach at the marina. The condo isn't fancy but it is spotlessly clean, everything works and it has everthing we needed for simple meal prep . . . and its only about 30 steps from the blender to the beautiful water. We rent a car, but it would be a pretty easy stay without a car because of its close proximity to the ferry dock and Red Hook stores/restaurants.
I've never met the owner (Greg) in person but he is easy to communicate with and makes the booking process easy. Thanks again, Greg!
I hope I don't have to wait a year to go back!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Greg's unit for a week in January 2013. The unit far exceeded our expectations, given the reasonable rate charged. It is RIGHT ON THE BEACH. Sapphire Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in St. Thomas, and this alone is a perk rarely found, to be directly on it.

The condo was absolutely spotless. As a clean freak myself, that meant a lot. The bathroom was remodeled with a double shower head, and was really nice and roomy, and again, spotless.

The bed was nice and firm. The dressers in the bedroom provided plenty of space for all our stuff, as well as closet space. We used the pocket doors at night to separate the bedroom from the kitchen/living area. During the day, we opened them up to let the sunlight in.

During the 2 days we stayed at Sapphire for the day, we opened the back door, turned the AC off, and used the (lockable) screen doors, front and back, to let the breezes flow thru the unit. The AC worked great, but we really only needed it on a few of the days, the breezes from the ocean were so nice. The living room furniture was comfortable, clean, and on the newer side. The sofa is a sleeper, but we didn't open it. It would be a good unit to come to with a couple kids who could sleep on the sleeper. The pool area was beautiful. The patio was large, the table and chairs were nice, and there's a little area below for two sunbeds, as well as a brick water bucket outside each unit to rinse the sand off your feet. :-)

The kitchen is remodeled and has a double cook top, a blender, microwave, coffeemaker, and full-size refrigerator and all the cooking utensils, pots/pans you would need. We made dinner and dined on the patio 4 out of 7 nights, and we loved being right on the beach. The area is super quiet at night, and having a few glasses of wine and dining on the patio, with the sound of the ocean and the moonlight -- unbeatable. This is what makes this condo so special.
I would not hesitate to stay here again. In fact, we plan on it. The pictures absolutely do not do the unit justice.

I do think that having a car is a must if staying in Sapphire Beach Resort. We did our food shopping at Food Center, outside of Red Hook, and saved a lot of money stocking up there.

Another perfect vacation at Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time that we have rented this unit at Sapphire Beach and, again, it was just perfect.
The condo is very clean and perfectly located. There is nothing like being ground level, right on the best beach on St Thomas. Its also very close to the restaurants of Red Hook and the ferry to St. John.
We had a great week and hope that it isn't another year before we get to go back.
