As they travel the beach, B build is the fourth building shown.

FROM A LONG TIME RENTER:

I have been going to Sapphire Beach for about 20 years. It is my guaranteed good weather, fun getaway on an annual basis. I’ve mostly stayed at one of the Parkes’ condominiums either at the beach or overlooking the harbor (a short, pleasant walk from the beach). The condos themselves are beautiful and well-furnished in tasteful island décor, made the more so by Barbara, co-hostess. The kitchen, baths and master suite are to die for and can accommodate the guests with two separate sleep sofas as well, if needed.

The beach itself is clean, white sand with an expansive view of the entire bay, the ships and St John, a short ferry ride away (for down-home shopping and snorkeling and dining treats). There is great snorkeling right at Sapphire as well. The Sapphire Beach community also has a sport hut for snorkel gear and fish food. There is ample food and drink accessibility through the Banana Cabana which makes sunning the more enjoyable on chaises by the water or under the row of shade trees. You can relax at either venue easily and comfortably. Or you can use the pool between the beach and the harbor if you prefer. It is equally lovely and the island breezes keep you refreshed, along with the occasional dip in either the pool or the sea.

I also treasure the day sail and fishing adventures from the local boats at the harbor there. They range from hosting two people to dozens of guests, depending on size of the boat, but all are enjoyable. Meals and drinks are served on board, and some take you through the British Virgin Islands to view the “Baths” on Virgin Gorda or to the famous “Soggy Dollar” seaside bar.

Then too, just down the hill, is the local town of Red Hook which boasts great dining, shopping (not crowded as it is in downtown Charlotte Amalie) and a huge fishing boat harbor. All in all, Sapphire Beach is ideal for a vacation and is ideally located. I love it and am headed back again in November. Can’t wait.

DETAILS: This totally renovated, 1100 square foot, 2 story, corner unit, condo with wrap around balcony on each floor. The unit is located in the B building. Only 50' to the best part of Sapphire Beach for swimming. Your view is spectacular from the private balconies. Your view includes St. John, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, Hans Lollick, and several cays. Most special is the colors of the crystal clear sapphire blue water.

The lower floor has a full kitchen, with a convection microwave oven, sitting area, bar, flat screen TV, queen sleep sofa, full bath.

The top floor features wood cathedral ceilings. There is a new king size bed, TV, a sitting area with a queen size sleep sofa, desk and full bath.

The unit has central air conditioning, cable, ceiling fans, wi-fi, and a nearby multi level pool.

A fully equipped dive shop has snorkel gear, they can arrange scuba excursions, offer floats, windsurfing lessons, and kayak rentals. You can also enjoy a game of beach volleyball on the sandy beach.

The marina at Sapphire Beach offers day cruises including snorkeling excursions, trips to the BVI, and deep-sea fishing. You have a choice of power, or sail boats. You can also rent a jet ski or go parasailing.

Restaurants nearby offer everything from Italian, Mexican, fresh fish, pub food, and local favorites Marina Market in Red Hook is conveniently located and there is also a supermarket (The Food Center) further down the road where you can find a wider selection.

If you don't want to leave the beach, there is also a small refreshment stand between buildings B&C at Sapphire serving hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, soft drinks, beer and tropical drinks(hours: 11AM-4PM).

Sapphire Grill located at Sapphire Village is a short walk away.

Golfing enthusiasts can play at nearby Mahogany Run, and challenge the 'devils triangle'.

About Tiffany Higginson - Owner's daughter

I AM AN ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR FOR A FIRM IN UPPER STATE NEW YORK AND SO ENJOY THE WARMTH IN ST. THOMAS DURING THE VERY COLD NEW YORK WINTERS.

Tiffany Higginson - Owner's daughter purchased this villa in 1991

Why Tiffany Higginson - Owner's daughter chose East End

OUR DAUGHTER WAS CHRONICALLY ILL WITH SEVER ASTHMA (AND A NURSE REGISTERED IN 48 STATES) FOUND THE CARIBBEAN AIR EASIER TO BREATH. WE BOUGHT THE CONDO FOR HER TO LIVE IN WHILE WORKING AT THE US VIRGIN ISLANDS HOSPITAL. HOWEVER, JUST BEFORE HER MOVE TO USVI SHE HAD AN ASTHMA ATTACK THAT TOOK HER LIFE, AT THE AGE OF 32. IN HER MEMORY OUR WHOLE FAMILY DECIDED TO KEEP THE PLACE AND ENJOY THE AREA SHE LOVED.

What makes this villa unique

OUR CONDOS ARE BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED, 50' FROM THE BEACH (AND ANOTHER 50' FROM THE HARBOR), LARGE WRAP AROUND PORCHES, GLASS TOP PATIO TABLES, DINE AT THE BEACH, VIEWING THE BEACH OR IN THE CONDOS.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been to many tropical beach vacations, but this one trumped them all. We absolutely fell in love with Sapphire Beach. Great sand for building sand castles, large level beach, and crystal clear water for swimming and snorkeling. The small tropical fish were gorgeous and plentiful – we even saw sea turtles grazing on the sea grass. The views from the beach were spectacular. We also enjoyed watching the boats coming in and out of the marina.

The condo was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and well equipped with everything we could possibly need. It was a home away from home.

We stayed for a week and definitely could have stayed longer… many wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.

Excellent Unit and Location!

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough good things about this unit and it's location on the property. Where to start... Sapphire Beach is located on the East End of the island and is within a mile of Red Hook which is packed with great restaurants, bars (Duffy's) and the ferry to St. John. Sapphire Beach in our opinion is the best beach on the island. It has it all...small crowds, great snorkeling, soft sand, shade trees, a snack/drink shack, a pool and a marina with fishing charters, parasailing, sailing charters and PWC's. The best part of all is this unit is located right in front of the best part of the beach.

As for the unit...It is located in the "B" building and occupies the top two stories. It is also a corner unit so both the 1st and 2nd floor have a wrap around balcony. The inside of the unit is completely remodeled and very inviting. The 1st floor has a full tile bathroom, kitchen complete with all the appliances, a pull out sleeper sofa and chair, TV, a dining table and a full set of patio furniture on the balcony. On the 2nd floor there is another full tile bath, king bed, pull out sleeper sofa and chair, TV and dresser. There is plenty of storage for your weeks worth of clothes and purchases.

You really can't go wrong with this unit. We'll be back soon for sure.

If this unit is booked the owners also have a two story corner unit in the F building which overlooks the marina and St. John.

Thanks for sharing your paradise with us!

For the beach!

  • 4 of 5
If you are going for the beach Sapphire is the place! The water was calm all week, great for snorkeling and its super convenient to have the beach only a few steps from the hotel room. No need to bring your own chairs or snorkeling equipment, what they provided was great. We saw turtles, stingrays and a bunch of great fish in the bay. The room was clean and the wrap around porch was very nice. The only complaint we had was that the pull out couches are not very comfortable, thin mattresses. This place is perfect for 2 people with the king size bed being awesome! Red Hook is a $1-$4 cab ride away which was very convenient if you didnt want to drive to grab dinner or drinks. We really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a wonderful stay! I so wish that you would have mentioned the pull out mattress problem to me or the staff on sight. They are air mattresses. The powered pump is left in plain sight on the end table. We could have very easily solved that problem for you.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the owner's other condo in building F by the marina. We thoroughly enjoy all the boating activity go goes on in the early morning. We sit on the desk with coffees and bloody marys and it is so relaxing. The pictures of the condo do not do it justices. It is so much more beautiful in person. This is the second time we have stayed there and just love the place. The sandy beaches are very close by and Sapphire Beach bay has the most beautiful water colors you'll every see. Red Hook is very close by and easy to drive or taxi to for food and drinks. The owner was very easy to work with in arranging dates we could stay. Would highly recommend this unit !!!

Absolutely fantastic vacation. The condo made it for us...clean, nicely decorated and homey. The view from the balcony was like a post card. We were very comfortable just hanging out in the condo and watching movies, fixing breakfast or whatever. The staff was very friendly and catered to our needs above and beyond expectations. Everywhere we went as we talking with people and telling them where we were staying they would always comment about Sapphire Beach being the best beach in St. Thomas. The restaurants in Red Hook were awesome and very close by. Our favorite turned out to be Latitude 18 which was a little tough to get to but very much worth it. We went twice. There is no question that when we go back to St. Thomas we are staying in the same place which is what we now refer to our "St. Thomas home."

Beautiful and comfortable place!!

  • 5 of 5
The description is more than accurate! You are within walking distance of the beautiful white sand beach, and this bay is a snorkeler's paradise! We got up early each morning at sunrise (breathtaking!) and walked to the beach. Quiet and peaceful - the staff is very attentive to anything you need. It is the perfect place to stay in St. Thomas - easy to find, excellent accomodations - we would return in a heartbeat! And definitely will!
