I miss it already!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was fantastic! Kitchen and bathroom have been renovated, so it is a lot nicer than some of the other condos in this complex. We rented three condos for a family event, so two parents and two kids stayed in this one. The kitchen has lots of counterspace, an oven, and a small dishwasher; the location toward the end of the B building was very convenient, and in my opinion, had the absolute best views in the resort! Some snorkeling gear was available for us to use, which was great because Sapphire Beach is a prime location for snorkeling on St. Thomas. The biggest bonus of this condo is that it's a first-floor unit with direct access to the beach. The kids ran around all vacation--into the ocean, back to the condos, throwing a ball on the beach, to the pool--such a great trip! Furthermore, the beach is not crowded and the resort is quite safe. There is a small cabana for breakfast and lunch (good food), and servers will bring it right to you on the beach if you want. The water is warm and lovely and the views are breathtaking. Loved it! Try renting jetskis in the marina on site--the owner/operator is great! Red Hook is a 5-minute drive (or bus ride) away. We finally got our rental cars for shopping and getting around the island, but be forewarned--if you arrive at night and aren't familiar with St. Thomas (they drive on the left and roads are very narrow, steep, and curvy), take a cab to the resort and rent a car the next day. I will totally go back to Sapphire Beach!! Thanks Chuy, for sharing your fantastic condo with us!!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

My apologies for taking so long to write this review but the delay is no reflection of our experience. I must admit that when looking at the pictures on VRBO I wondered if any of the pictures had been photo shopped. After all, could the view from the patio really be so beautiful and the ocean so close? Let me tell you that the pictures are 100% authentic. The unit was exactly as pictured and described. It had everything you could ask for. It was the perfect amount of space for my husband and I.

Everyone we encountered at Sapphire Beach was so warm and friendly. I personally enjoyed the proximity of the condo to the Banana Cabana where I could get a Tropical Explosion cocktail every day. Even though the pool restaurant was closed for renovation, the pool is open. I loved to relax by the pool watching the boats go in and out of the marinas. It was also a wonderful place to watch the St John 4th of July fireworks. The actual beach at Sapphire is gorgeous too. We particularly enjoyed the trees so we could get out of the sun. My husband did lots of snorkeling in the area right in front of the unit.

Red Hook is a 5 minute drive away. Lots of great restaurants and shops there. We had a great time at the Tree Limin Zipline on St Thomas. I was a bit concerned since we are generally a couple of couch potatoes but it was a great experience. The guides are lots of fun but also very safety conscious. We also took the car ferry over to St John for a day. More beautiful beaches, yummy food and shopping.

This was our third trip to St Thomas but previously we had stayed at Secret Harbor. I have nothing negative to say about SH but we have already decided that we will stay at this same unit at Sapphire Beach during our next trip.

Chuy was always quick to respond to emails before, during and after our vacation. I especially want to thank him for being so gracious when we had to reschedule our trip at the last minute due to a medical emergency.

incredible palm beach views!

  • 4 of 5

Thanks Chuy for a pleasant stay at your unit! We really enjoyed the incredible beautiful palm tree beach views! Hassle-free check-in and check-out process. Everything was as described here on the website. Great condo, and awesome artwork! Very good communication with owner, always replied immediately to all emails/questions!

As for getting around (to see the island), we would recommend renting a car or use the inexpensive dollar taxis ($2 per person) that stop every 15 minutes at the resorts bus stop. A beach bar is on site right next to the unit, if you need a small breakfast or lunch. Also good for cocktails/drinks. Good restaurants and Urgent Care Medical Family Practice (with a doctor always on call, went there when our son sustained an injury) in Red Hook (about 1 1/2 miles away).

Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

Great owners, exceptionally helpful and responsive. The beach, bay and view are outstanding. The unit is a solid value especially in light of what lies in front of you. Get over to St. John with your Jeep for a day. Then charter a boat to take you around it and into the best bays for snorkeling. Incredible. Thank you Chuy.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Just can't describe how beautiful! We had an amazing time. The unit had everything we needed and was very clean. Check-in and check-out was simple and convenient. The view is breathtaking. Location was great and Red Hook was very close by with great restaurants, plenty of shopping and friendly people. My friends and I were very sad we had to leave. I'm already planning my next trip here!
