About John McLeod

Cathryn and I married seven years ago, residing in Asheville NC, where I have my business. We love our second home in Sapphire Village, where we stay as often as possible. When 'on island' we attend Calvary Baptist Church, rise early to enjoy the beach and pool, dine very well, and continuously marvel at the outrageous view.

John McLeod purchased this studio in 2007

Why John McLeod chose East End

We bought this Studio to share with family and friends. When 'on island,' we love meeting locals and soaking up the lovely Caribbean accent! Everyone is so friendly and ready to help you find your way around. I like to do my walking, jogging and swimming soon after dawn, and Cathryn loves to meet friends and shop in Red Hook. We both enjoy photography excursions to St John, Tortola and Virgin Gorda. Bring your passport for travels to the British Virgin Islands. Meet your neighbors around the pool and at Sapphire Grill. We know you'll love Sapphire as much as we do.

What makes this studio unique

Outrageously beautiful view, quick access to Sapphire Beach, secure gated community with two pools maintained daily. We have on site condo property management, and a dedicated crew that maintains the Caribbean landscaping. Easy access to beaches, shopping and restaurants around the island. Hop on a Safari (an open-air taxi) at the entrance to the Village for a dollar ride to Red Hook, or Tutu Park Mall for all your provisions at KMart and Plaza Extra, new Walgreen's pharmacy grocery. Another grocery store is Food Mart less than a ten minute drive. Two dollars will buy your hilly ride to Charlotte Amalie - the heart of town on colorful St Thomas - gateway to all the tourist attractions dangles before you. Sapphire Marina offers day sailing (we can personally recommend the 'Northwind'), jet-skiing, deep-sea fishing and sunset tours. The dive shop on Sapphire Beach rents lounge chairs, or take the ones we provide, snorkel equipment and kayaks. Hamburgers, fries and drinks from Banana Cabana at the beach or from Sapphire Grill next to the pool! Your Studio balcony faces northeast, so it's always draped with pleasing indirect sunlight... perfect for morning coffees, watching seagulls and sailboats glide gracefully over clear blue waters, and stunning Caribbean sunsets. Quite often you can hear the wind whistling low through sailboat masts in the marina. This is the most attractive Studio in all of Sapphire Village: uncluttered, clean, fresh... 'easy on the eyes.' You might not want to leave!

Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed almost 1 month at this condo. Very clean - well maintained studio. The view on the 2nd floor patio

of the marina was fantastic !!! We had a rental car while we were there but won't when we return. There are

other options. Loved watching all the boats coming & going. Owner John was at their other condo & very nice.

We highly recommend this condo & will come back! Love this condo! THANK YOU for a great vacation!

Condo gem in the carribean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderfully comforting condo for a month. As soon as you open the door, the view wows you!. The wonderful patio with new comfortable furniture was our favorite eating spot. We had breakfast there every morning, watching the boats come and go. After a day at the beach this became a good spot for a cold beverage. I can,t say enough about the view, with St. John's and Totola in the distance. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need for cooking. The bed was very comfortable, and the decorating in the unit was extremely nice. There was plenty of storage for our things in the closet, in the drawers, and a huge medicine cabinet and storage under the vanity. We loved it. We were very close to the pool and a very short walk to the beach at saphire. We meet a lot of very nice people, some local and some visitors like us. We have acquired some friendships that will last a lifetime. The taxi services were great, we didn't,t rent a car, but used the island transportation system of safari buses and the vitran bus. This systems were reasonable and you traveled with a lot of island people, and got emerged into the culture. We meet so many nice people. I highly recommend this condo, because it was newly remodeled, and we felt very safe there. The location could not be beat. Had the best time ever.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned 4/24 /14 from a week in this great studio. The location was terrific . It was 3rd floor with views of St Johns and Tortola and several smaller Cays. A cup of coffee on the deck in the morning looking over the boats and masts in the marina was the best! Great snorkeling right at Sapphire beach was just a short walk. We also went to the National Park every morning to jog and walk(about 1 1/2 miles ride) Just on the other side of RedHook. We have been to Sapphire several times before and stayed at Sapphire Village and Sapphire Resort. This unit is a great Value for the location , the view, and the cost- it's a winner.

We went to St Johns twice . Once renting a 13' dingy with a 50hp from Calypso for $195/day. and Snorkeled the Best-Leinster Bay(watermelon Cay) and Brown Beach). We also took our car over to St Johns another day($50 on the car barge-no charge for occupants). A great value Its $14 a person rt on the regular ferry out of RedHook. Anyway we went to Woody's in town for happy Hour -$1 for well drinks . Skinny Legs out by Coral Bay is a must for lunch. You can rent scooters or a jeep in Town - Cruz Bay.

In RedHook we went to Latitude 18 for drinks and dinner and live music every nite( a bit roughed but fun). Duffy's Love Shack also Fun. Lot's of choices for dinner and drinks around the East end.

Everything we could have asked go

  • 5 of 5

The extra's like beach towels, kitchen supplies, etc were all there. Nothing to do but enjoy the beautiful sunrise and view from our balcony. Close to the nice pool, also to the ferry boat terminal. Would return in a second!

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed on St. Thomas as Sapphire Village from the 9th thru the 15th of January. We found the property to be perfectly situated with 3 separate pools, a bar and grill and a beautiful beach. The rental was very reasonable and the owners were great communicators. I would definitely go back again. This is my second time staying at Sapphire and I cannot recommend it enough!
