A great vacation in the Islands

  • 5 of 5
Enjoy St Thomas, St John and the BVI from your home base at Sapphire Beach. Location , beach and accommodations are terrific . You can enjoy everything at your own pace. Stay in and relax with home cooked dinner on your private patio looking across at St John, or taxi into Red Hook for the nightlife. The owner is a pleasure to work with - ensures your comfort and maintains the unit. Highly recommend this VRBO property.

So beautiful

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here and had such a wonderful time. The room was clean and you can't beat the view for the price. The only thing that would of made our stay better, was if the restaurant was still open on the beach.

Lone Traveler

  • 5 of 5
My 14 day stay at Sapphire Beach was a retirement gift to myself...and a way to get out of our long Ohio deep freeze. As a single female, I felt safe on the compound. The staff are helpful and unobtrusive. John, the owner, was pleasant and easy to work with. He is prompt with responses to questions. I found if he has not responded to inquiries within a day or two, there's a "glitch" in in the the communication and to re-communicate to him. The unit is very clean, and a little dated,but with new paint and accessories. (Reportedly this fairly new owner has future plans for more updates). I liked not being directly "on" the beach (one floor up) for both security and avoidance for bringing sand into the unit. This is the quietest end of the beach which is just steps away. The view of St. John off the balcony is beautiful, and I was lucky enough to have a gorgeous view of the largest full moon just coming up over St. John. The sound of the waves is hypnotic when you leave balcony doors open. The kitchen has enough gadgets and tools to prepare meals. I appreciated having enough paper towels, dish soap, coffee filters, spices, etc to get started until I was able to shop for my own. Taxi's ( found on the complex) and the locals' $2 jitney (found just up the steep hill) are available if you aren't renting a car. The foodie truck up that same hill is reasonable ($) and has tasty smoked/grilled selections that I really enjoyed. Red Hook is close by, with numerous restaurants and the ferry to St. John readily available. The unit is quiet, but that was challenged by 2 young particularly rowdy couples in the next unit that thankfully only stayed a few days. As a "birder", I was sorry not to have brought my binoculars. I would definitely consider another stay in this rental.

Review @ Sapphire Beach

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this unit @ Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina for 5 nights for our 2nd honeymoon. The location was SPECTACULAR! We could see the water from our balcony and the beautiful beach. From our unit to Red Hook was less than a 5 minute drive...2 minutes to the main road, then 2 minutes to Red Hook. There are nice restaurants there including Fish Tails and The Love Shack. Happy Hour is the time to go, as prices are slashed. The unit was nice and included a safe. Previous renters had left shampoo, conditioner, a bottle of liquor and sunscreen, which all were very useful. Bath towels and beach towels were provided, too. We could leave our doors to the balcony open all night to hear the waves...very calming. The bed was very soft, but comfortable. We felt very safe there. Each time we drove into the resort, we were asked our unit number. The unit was nice, but you can tell it is well used. We would stay there again, mainly due to the location. A few minor furnishing updates would make it spectacular.

Exactly as described. Modest accommodations with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5
I had a great time staying here. First I will get the negatives out of the way (obviously they were not that negative since I gave them FIVE STARS!!!).... the wi-fi connection goes in and out. This was actually a good thing after i got over the frustration because I was forced NOT to do any work. The dive shop closed shortly before we arrived. This meant no ability to rent chairs or any water sport stuff (aka snorkels, kayaks, parasailing, etc). The owner let us use their snorkel equipment in the closet, but it would have been nice having the store. Lastly, the decor was a little dated, but honestly, who stays inside when you are in a place like this!!!!

The positives outweighed the negatives! The view was fabulous... exactly as described and their condo was located in a quiet part of the beach. I loved it. The towels provided are softer and more plush than the towels I have in my own home. They were so luxurious!!! The condo itself was a great layout and was a perfect size for my boyfriend and I. It was in a perfect location on the island for adventures to some of the best beaches and to the ferry to St Johns (A MUST!... Trunk Bay was the best place we visited). All in all, our stay was fabulous. We would probably rent a car next time as the taxi fees got high after a while, but I would probably be scared driving there lol (hills and steep roads and they drive on the left). I would DEFINITELY stay in this condo again. John and Sally were wonderful leading up to the trip as well!

So close to the water, from the balcony it looked like we were on a boat!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this unit the second week we were at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina - we extended our stay after a week in another unit (in the B building, this one is in E) and are already plotting our return. (So some of this review is duplicated in another review I just did of the other unit.) What we loved about this unit is that it is on the un-busy end of the beach, with no one in sight other than a scattered few from this building. Paradise. The beach is rockier at this end, and this building basically has a private cove (and just past the pebbly rocks, right in front of the unit, maybe twenty paces into the water, great snorkeling.) If you crave waterfront views, the sound of crashing waves, and walkout convenience, I do not know of a better spot. The owner of this unit was responsive and very easy to work with. Read a sampling of all the positive reviews for this complex, and think of it as an efficiency condo rather than a resort, and you will be delighted! There are some longstanding issues that result in the Dive Shop being closed (and the adjacent building, where a nice beachfront restaurant belongs, looking instead like an abandoned building in Mexico), but the silver lining is that the hordes from the cruise ships coming to the island no longer taxi to this beach for the day. And the lack of amenities contributes to the very reasonable rates. (Probably 1/3 or less of the nearby Ritz Carlton's starting rate, with twice as much room and right on the water. Still, if you value resort amenities over a "sweet beachfront shack" vibe, this is not for you.) The best sand beach swimming is a few minutes' walk down to the other end of the complex. In terms of food, there is a hamburger shack onsite that serves drinks, a really good barbecue food truck at the top of the hill, cheap taxis and buses into Red Hook for nightlife, and everything you need to make simple meals right in the condo. This unit was basic...not fancy, not new, but clean, very serviceable and pleasant. A bonus: three big fluffy white towels for each of us, unusual in the VRBO world. The marina next door has nice laundry facilities - less than a minute's walk. You can also book some day trips departing from the marina. Do your homework and rent from an owner. Double check to make sure there will not be remodeling construction - they are halfway through re-doing the exteriors, building by building. This condo is a winner. Thanks, John, for sharing it with us.
