The perfect escape, with perfect accommodations...

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!
