You will enjoy Italian floor tiles throughout the unit, remodeled bathrooms, beautiful new kitchen with distressed alder cabinets, and new appliances. We have installed beautiful new light fixtures, ceiling fans, and gorgeous off-white drapes for the new fourteen foot sliding glass doors. We have decorated the unit with many mirrors to optimize the view of the crystal clear turquoise Caribbean water that can be enjoyed from almost any vantage point in the condo. At night you can light the candles throughout the unit and terrace, turn off the lights, and enjoy the moonlight sparkling on the water below. Or relax on the outdoor white-covered couch, gazing at the stars as your listen to the waves……such a romantic setting!
The condo has been decorated to provide ultimate relaxation after a long day at the beach or exploring. The main living area has a large, white slipcovered, over stuffed couch and ottoman . The flat screen 42 inch TV has been mounted on the wall for easy viewing and beautiful white porcelain lamps surround the living area for romantic lighting. The upstairs master bedroom has been decorated in mostly white with beautiful blue sapphire accents. A new top-of –the- line king pillow top mattress has been purchased to provide for a great night’s sleep. The condo is furnished with great quality linens and towels.
The villa is located at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina. Sapphire Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island and has great snorkeling. You can swim with the sea turtles and other local sea life directly in front of the unit which sits less than 30 yards from the front of the building. Our unit sits in one of the two buildings located closest to the water
so the views are exceptional. The small town of Redhook is located less than a half mile from the unit where you will find many bars and restaurants including the famous “Duffy’s Love Shack”. In addition, there is a great small grocery store called Marina Market where you will be able to purchase made to order sandwiches and salads for your trip to the beach or your adventure to the British Virgin Islands and St. John. The ferry terminal to St. John and Tortola are also located in Redhook.
My husband and I and our four children live in Seattle, Washington. We love to travel and have spent much of our free time traveling across the globe. We love outdoor activities such as boating, skiing, swimming, snorkeling and hiking.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2011
My family and I fell in love with St. Thomas when we first visited it on a Carribean cruise in August of 2010. We knew we wanted to come back. In January of 2011 we made a return trip to St. Thomas to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We stayed at Sapphire Beach and decided we needed to make it our second home. We purchased our unit a month later and I have been renovating it since. Finally, it is finished......and beautiful.
Where do I begin. Cheri's condo is truly a beautiful and comfortable place. It was all that we expected and more. Cheri has made it such a welcoming and exceptional experience. So well appointed with the touches of home. The colors are well coordinated and so many updates galor. My favorite place was the comfy sofas on the deck and listening to the waves and watching the activity on the water. We were so fortunate to witness the most beautiful sunrises and moon rises over St John. We really enjoyed the beach at the condo plus Lindquist beach so close by. We spent 2 days at St John and rented a car. Interesting to drive on the left side of the road but so worth having wheels to see so much. Trunk bay and Cinnamon bay are a must and the snorkeling was amazing. Cheri has even provided the snorkel Gear and coolers to take on your day trips. From the first contact with Cheri things went so smoothly . Cheri is easy to talk to and so accommodating to answer any question. We will definitely try to plan another trip and will recommend to all our friends and family. The Ferguson's from Greer SC
My Husband and I had the most wonderful vacation at Sapphire Beach!!! I have never seen such beautiful waters. Cheri's condo is very nice and has everything you need. Snorkeling is so much fun and the ocean is so clear you can see everything. Unfortunately after my 3rd day I tripped and fell on the black rocks in front of the Dive Shop and had 14 stitches in my knee so my water days were over. Even with my mishap I would not trade this vacation for the world. We are definitely coming back!!!!!!!! Thank You Cheri for the wonderful room. I love the CARIBBEAN.
I chose this condo because of the beautiful pictures in the listing. I was not disappointed. I love the overall color scheme, the tasteful design and the spacious layout of the condo. There are no words to describe the views of the aquamarine turquoise waters that are breath taking, therapeutic, and together with the comfortable surroundings of the condo creates a great romantic get-a-way. Cheri thought of everything. We also found great support from the condo's caretaker. The location is perfect, we could see the marina, St. John and the most beautiful sunset in the Caribbean. It's been over two months and a comfortable warm and fuzzy smile appears every time I think of our stay there. Book and enjoy!
Wow. I don't really want to share how' wonderful our experience was at this condo, in fear that it will never be available again when we want to book!! My family and I have vacationed at Sapphire Beach Resort numerous times, but this was our first time in Cheri's unit. It is, BY FAR, the most beautiful, peaceful, and comfortable condo we have stayed in at SBR. They have thought of everything, And, just when you realize you have forgotten something (sunblock, beach toys, a little vodka for a martini, etc.) you find it there in the condo! My husband and I took our two boys, and it was perfect for the four of us, but it could fit 6 comfortable with the two pull-outs. Words cannot describe the views and luxurious seating on the patios. It is like you are on an island all alone (which is why it would also be great for a romantic getaway). It is the little details, like relaxing candles, in dramatic glass vases, that protect them from the ocean breezes. Lots of cozy blankets, a zillion towels, comfortable beds, a beautiful kitchen (which, believe me, is unlike ANYTHING else you will find in SBR), and everything you would need to make a home cooked meal, if you don't want to go out. We never ate out (even though Cheri provided plenty of information on restaurants, in a cool guide she put together). Why leave the heavenly veranda with plenty of seating for everyone. The local market in Red Hook is EXTREMELY overpriced. So stop somewhere on the way from the airport to pick up your food supplies. We actually bring most of our stuff, and just get our fresh foods (veggies, eggs, milk) at the little market in Red Hook. Red Hook is walk able (about 10 mins walk from SBR), but I wouldn't advise it at night, if you have kids. The road is a little dark and windy...but fine for adults. There is a trolley you can catch as well, for like 50 cents. Cabs are readily available at the "lobby", if you don't have a rental car. I will have to agree with some of the other reviews that say that the amenities are not 5 star. But, if you even have time to think about the very few negative things, like the lack of a proper restaurant on property, then you probably are staying in the wrong condo, or you are nuts. If you haven't been to SBR, you are missing out on a best kept secret. It is paradise. And we live in Florida, so we have nice beaches everywhere! This is different, and so is this unit. If it is available, reserve it!! It;s amazing. Thanks Cheri!
This one (large) bedroom condo is a beautiful place to spend a week at St. Thomas' best beach. Sapphire Beach has a marvelous, quiet beach AND the best snorkeling reef we found after trying 4 other beaches on the island. The marina adjoins the property making for easy scheduling of fishing and pleasure trips. And this gorgeous condo itself is in the quietest area of the resort, but with quick easy access to the pool. It also has the best view the sunrise and of St. John. We'll go back!
My husband and I stayed in Cheri's condo 2/2/2013-2/8/2013. The condo was beautiful. The views are awesome. She has decorated it very tastefully. We used the candles out on the deck a couple nights. The upstairs has a deck with vaulted ceilings. The condo was spacious. She has everything you could possibly need for your stay...no kidding! The chairs, cooler, and snorkel gear came in handy. The beach charges for the chairs and snorkel gear. I have a hard time with hotel beds because I have a bad back...her bed was so comfortable! You can walk to the top of the hill and take a safari or taxi to anywhere you may want. We didn't rent a car. Sapphire bar and grill is just past the marina and they had good food with happy hour 3-6 everyday. We met many locals there that had great advice. The location was nice because it wasn't crowded. You can take a quick trip into Redhook and eat at many different restaurants. Cruise ships do taxi people into Sapphire beach, but it is a large beach. If you want to be away from the people you can just sit at the beach in front of the condo. You can get food and drinks served to you on the beach closer to unit A and B. The best grocery store was the Food Center. They had more selection and the prices were better. Take a safari there and a private taxi back...so you don't have to walk down the steep hill. Sapphire beach had awesome snorkeling. I thought it was better than Coki beach. Make sure you take a day and go over to St. John. Trunk Bay has a beautiful beach. We went sailing with Captain Tom on H.B. Welch and had an outstanding time. He Is right there at the marina, so you don't have to get up early and take a taxi. He will let you set the sails and steer the boat. He brought us to a quiet area to snorkel. I saw sting ray and many beautiful fish. I would highly recommend staying at Cheri's condo. It felt like home. The best part was getting to know the locals. They treated us like they had known us for years.
