About Mike and Dawn Rehling

Thanks to our careers as an airline professional and elementary school teacher we have been visiting the Caribbean for many years. We discovered St. Thomas and our beloved Sapphire Beach a few years ago and it has been a dream of ours to own a piece of this heavenly place. When the opportunity came for us to purchase a part of our Bliss we knew we had to jump on it. We have a great deal of knowledge about St. Thomas, Sapphire Beach and the surrounding islands. Let us help you make your vacation one to remember. Please e-mail us and we can help you to plan an itinerary that will make Our Bliss, Your Bliss!

Mike and Dawn Rehling purchased this condo in 2014

Why Mike and Dawn Rehling chose East End

Being seasoned travelers throughout the Caribbean and after staying at several different resorts on St. Thomas, we knew that this was where we wanted to be. Our condo is actually on the beach. There is a beautiful sandy portion perfect for pulling up a chair and basking in the sun. When it’s time to cool off we can don our snorkel gear and head out to the center of the beach in the grassy area and hang with the sea turtles (we always see Green Sea Turtles and have also seen Hawksbill Sea Turtles, both of which are endangered species). After a quick visit with the sea turtles and stingrays, you can swim to either the right or the left and you will be near the coral reefs surrounding the beach. You are assured to see beautiful fish, amazing coral, squid, spotted eagle rays and a variety of other interesting sea creatures. After a day in the sun and a quick shower in the amazing condo you can go a mile down the road to Red Hook and find an array of wonderful restaurants to enjoy some refreshments and then a tasty meal.

What makes this condo unique

Location, Location, Location! That's the saying anyway, and Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina lives up to that in every way. The perfect condo, on the perfect beach, with the perfect reef. It doesn't get any better than Our Sapphire Bliss. Located in Building C means your right in the middle of the action at Sapphire. The beach is less than a 100 steps away, the pool is adjacent to building C and the Marina is less than 100 yards from your front door. The Banana Cabana is right next to you or if you prefer a more casual atmosphere you can take the short stroll up to The Sapphire Grill and have lunch or dinner poolside. For the more adventurous you can 'hike' up the hill for some awesome bbq from Off The Grid.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo for 5 nights and had a wonderful vacation! The condo is just like the pictures and everything we had hoped it would be. The owners were quite helpful and always got back to us in a timely manner as this was the first time we had rented through VRBO and had a few questions. Dawn even called me and talked to me for an hour about everything there is to do on the island. You can tell that they take great pride in their condo and want your stay to be the best vacation it can be. There are no negetives for this place and if you are waivering on th booking it..do it! You will not be disapointed! We can not wait to go back!

A Beautiful Condo on a Beautiful Beach on a Beautiful Island! Everything as Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, extended three-week stay at Our Sapphire Bliss in January 2015. We used a travel agent to book our stay, wanting to rely on her experience to ensure that the condo was not misrepresented and to minimize any disappointments. Using an agent was totally unnecessary and the only disappointment was that we only had three weeks at this wonderful place! We found the condo exactly as it was described on the website right down to the snorkeling gear. It was clean and recently updated.

The thing that we liked the most about the condo was the guest book that Mike and Dawn e-mailed to us prior to our arrival. This book clarified many questions we had about the condo, complex, and area, and helped us make some decisions that made our stay more enjoyable. For example, after googling some of the recommended shopping and dining establishments, it became apparent that we would need to catch a number of taxis during our stay or rent a car (walking the shoulderless roads, even to nearby Red Hook, is not an option- especially at night). We opted for the car which, while pricey for a 3-week stay, allowed us the freedom to come and go and explore the entire island (from the left lane, naturally!). After reading the guest book, many individuals that we met on the beach or at the pool thought that we were locals!

We visited all seven of St. Thomas’ beaches that were listed in a guidebook, but felt that Sapphire Beach was the most beautiful. The condo complex and adjacent marina provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy water activities of all kinds and we found everything to be well maintained. We appreciated Mike & Dawn’s thoughtfulness and attention to detail which makes their guests comfortable and allows them to relax and immerse themselves in the tropical lushness of Our Sapphire Bliss. We are looking forward to more time in this paradise.

100% Island Time - Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We have 4 kids. After a crazy year of sports, coaching, work, and limited "adult time, my wife and I booked a spur-of-the-moment trip to St. Thomas using VRBO. We love the Caribbean and the chill time it inherently provides to a busy working couple. After booking the room, there was immediate response from the owners and any questions we had were answered. They were always there to ask questions about the island, things to do, and most importantly advice on activities, adventures, and cool things to do on the island. We received the Sapphire Bliss brochure and everything they stated in it was up to date and helped us plan our days. The condo was exceptionally clean, all the appliances were in perfect working order, and we had no problems at all. The snorkeling equipment was clean and worked well. Sapphire Beach was amazing (one of the best on the island) and we had plenty of room to park a beach chair and hang out in whatever spot we picked. We did not feel like we were just a tenant for the week. Because of the great communication from the owners and the genuine concern for us to have a good time, we felt like they were happy to have us there. If you choose to stay here, I believe you would be treated the same. St. Thomas is already a great spot to vacation and staying at such a wonderful place only enhanced our visit. We LOVED being on 100% Island Time! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! -Rich & Jessica

Great Vacation at Sapphire Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

We spent beautiful 14 days at Sapphire Beach. Mike and Dawn were fabulous to work with, their Sapphire Bliss was well-equipped, clean and yes that bed is very comfy. This was our 25th anniversary present to ourselves and now I’m thinking that because anniversaries come every year, we need to keep coming back.

The Sapphire Bliss picture of the view out the door to the patio is exactly what you see all the time, absolutely gorgeous. In fact, all of the photos are very well representative of what you get. It’s a very comfortable and well-maintained unit.

We rented a car and like to move around and explore. We went to some great beaches and experienced some great night life with Red Hook being so close. We did a day sail with the Daydreamer to Jost Van Dyke, went diving with Red Hook Dive Center and took two day trips to St. John. No matter where we went though it really seemed like coming home when we got back. I’m going to have to play recordings of the waves lapping up on shore just to remind me of waking up to that scene.

The snorkeling at Sapphire was great. We started to figure out where and when to find the rays and sea turtles and could see them on every time out. Now it’s back to winter, stare at all of our pictures and plan out how to do this again. Thanks, Mike and Dawn.

50th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited St. Thomas in celebration of my 50TH birthday. We really enjoyed our stay at Our Sapphire Bliss, it was fantastic. The Owners, Mike and Dawn were top notch and offered advice to my wife through the entire process, they even checked in with us upon our initial arrival! Being located directly on the beach was a true delight. Having the coral reef, pool and food hut all within a few steps, literally, made our stay one of the most relaxing and pleasant experiences we have enjoyed over the years. The view and ocean breeze from patio was awesome. The condo was well maintained and very clean. It was fully stocked with kitchen supplies, toiletries etc. It also had beach towels, chairs, and snorkel equipment. Being located only a few minutes drive from Red Hook (grocery store, bars and restaurants) was also a great convenience. The condo came with everything we needed for our vacation, and we would love to return. Thank you for the memories, Tim and Teresa.

Absolutely Wonderful Condo Steps from the Water!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I just returned from five awesome days at Our Sapphire Bliss! We loved everything about this beautifully done condo. The pictures on vrbo are exactly what you get when you arrive but they really cannot capture how nice this unit truely is. The view off the balcony is simply breathtaking. Loved sitting out there in the morning sipping our coffee.

We have never rented via vrbo or anything like it so we had apprehensions about the whole process. My boyfriend made most of the arrangements and spoke with the owner Mike many times. He was so helpful with all of our questions leading up to us booking the unit. This really made us feel at ease.

The book they have in the condo was a life saver. We have never been to St Thomas and the book has so much information in it about restaurants, things to do, beaches, water island and even has maps of the islands to the various places mentioned in the book including how to get to the grocery store. We loved the free wifi and all of the beach stuff they provide. The king size bed was so comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed. I could go on and on. We will probably never stay in a hotel again. What a great experience. Can’t wait to come back!
