Overview

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Stunning views of gorgeous Sapphire Beach and St. John! Bright aqua blue water right outside your door. The sound of ocean waves against the shore, constant breezes blowing through the palm trees. Welcome to paradise! FREE WIFI!!! FREE lounge chairs and snorkel gear at Dive In dive shop, on site!

What makes Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina so special? It is located directly on one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. The water must be 15 shades of blue! You are literally right on the sand, and you can see the beautiful blue water from all places in the condo, even in the bed! Some of the other places we have stayed did not have as nice a beach, did not have the great breezes, or did not have good snorkeling. We have it all here! It is located close to the Red Hook ferry, so it is easy to get to St John or the British Virgin Islands. We are close to some great restaurants and grocery stores at Red Hook. Walk to the marina on site and take a day sail to St John or a powerboat trip to the British Virgin Islands, or rent jet skis

Enjoy tropical drinks and a burger or mahi sandwich at the Banana Cabana located on the beach, open during the day for lunch and snacks. The full kitchen allows us to buy groceries and eat breakfast and some other meals in the room, saving time and money. The dive shop on site rents snorkeling equipment and kayaks. The views of St John and the British Virgin Islands are world class. We have stayed in many resorts and villas throughout the US and British Virgin Islands, and we kept coming back to Sapphire Beach Resort. If you want a full-service resort with several restaurants, this is not the place for you. If you want to have an incredible view right on a world-famous beach, this is it!

What makes this unit so wonderful? We just purchased this condo in Spring 2012, and we completely renovated it! The bathroom has been completely renovated and has a new tile shower, new tile floor, new cabinets and granite countertops. New HEAVENLY King Mattress and box springs, new high thread-count linens, new queen sleeper sofa, new patio furniture, fresh paint and new light fixtures! New dinnerware and accessories! New appliances and kitchenware. Sapphire Beach Resort has 5 Buildings that are on the beach--A,B,C,D and E. My husband and I have stayed in almost every building, and the thing we love about the E building is that it offers spectacular views of the crystal blue water as well as direct views of St John and the British Virgin Islands. It is also more private than some of the other buildings, as several of the buildings are on the busier 'main' beach. Here, you can enjoy the activities on the main beach and then come back to the privacy of your condo when you are ready to chill. One of my favorite things about being in the E building is watching the twinkling lights on St John at night...absolutely magical!

We love to snorkel, and some of our favorite snorkeling is right outside the door! We regularly see turtles and rays in the grass bed in the middle of Sapphire Beach, and the reef on both sides and around the point between the C and D building...Prettyklip Point...is beautiful! It is quite a show of purple fans, yellow elkhorn and other coral, and lots of beautiful fish! I have even seen a spotted eagle ray here! We can give you some great recommendations for snorkeling spots on St John and in the BVIs as well.

There are many great restaurants throughout St Thomas and St John, and we have listed some of our favorites in our Information Book at the condo.

How to get here: We are located near Red Hook on the East End of St Thomas. From the airport, you can rent a car or take a taxi to Sapphire Beach. We prefer having a car so we can take the car ferry to St John. If you want to take a car to St John for the day, be sure to check with the rental car company...not all of them allow you to take the cars to St John.

We want your experience to be as magical for you as it has been for us!

Absolutely perfect place!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for our family get together. We also rented unit 205 right next door which could be connected by opening up the patio doors. This made for a great set up. We definitely wanted Sapphire Beach but there were 6 of us and not many places that would accommodate all of us and we wanted to be close. A king bed and pull out couch in both places, and we had plenty of room. The views are amazing and loved being so close to the beach and pool. We have gone on many beach vacations and this is the perfect place if you like being close to the water. Great snorkeling. Close to Red Hook and good restaurants. Went to St John twice, we rented a car and took the ferry. We enjoyed having our own car so we could come and go as we wanted. It was nice having a car in St John. I cannot say enough about this place. It was clean, staff was friendly and we have absolutely no complaints. You cannot go wrong with renting this place. You will not be disappointed.

Easy to see why Sea Glass has gotten 5 stars from previous renters

  • 5 of 5
Phil and Angela were very easy to work with. Excellent communication (email, text and phone) from beginning to end. Recommendations for restaurants, beaches, shopping, excursions, rental car vs taxi very helpful and made stay stress free. Condo shows pride of ownership with quality furnishings and linens. Excellent snorkeling a few steps away. Recommend this condo with no hestitation.

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I honeymooned at Sea Glass at Sapphire Beach during mid-September, and it was a beautiful experience. We rented snorkel gear from the resort's dive shop for the entire week and had so much fun just walking out the door each morning to swim with the fish, rays, and (our favorite) sea turtles!

I loved being so close to the water, and it was incredibly relaxing sitting on the spacious porch to read a good book. I often caught myself simply staring off into the water or across the way to beautiful St. John. September is technically the "off season," and I was a little concerned about the weather, but we had no issues at all. It rained VERY briefly for about 5-10 minutes each day, which is pretty standard beach weather. Otherwise, it was all sunny skies. The island was pretty quiet, which suited us just fine.

We had a blast going into Red Hook for dinner (or to catch a couple football games). Everyone was extremely friendly. We took the Safari taxis around ($1 fare pp) as much as possible, but they only run during daylight hours. Otherwise, normal taxis are extremely accessible.

Most of our time was spent around the condo and resort area relaxing, but we took a couple of excursions. Highly recommend the Bad Kitty day cruise to see quite a few spots around the islands and see some beaches it would be difficult to get to otherwise. We finally went to St. John our last day, and I wish we had gone sooner! We had SO much fun renting a Jeep and cruising around the exotic island.

The condo was very comfortable and had everything we could have needed. We picked up some supplies at the Kmart and had snacks, coffee, and a couple meals around the place.

Highly recommend Sea Glass at Sapphire! Already dreaming of going back one day.

Wanna get away? We did and loved every minute of it

  • 5 of 5
Condo is just as it is pictured, great views from the deck, very close to the Redhook area. Bed slept better than our super expensive bed at home. We cooked breakfast, lunches and 1 dinner at the condo, had a night of frozen drinks using the blender and walking in the sand on the beach. Water is fantastic, best beach we found on our trip.
V&K from Dallas Texas. Plenty to do and see.

Beautiful family vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to St.Thomas. The location was perfect. My husband and 2 kids ( 4 and 11) had a great time. The view in the morning is amazing while enjoying your coffee! We took a boat trip to British Virgin Islands to snorkel and see Virgin Gorda (totally worth the money). We ended up having such a great time so we booked an all day sailboat trip to St. Johns to snorkel some more. The boat trips pick you up right outside the condo. The beach at the condo is white sand and crystal blue water.
We went on this vacation with another family that stayed next door (also owned by Phil and Angela). Our patios were connected by balcony door ( that we just left open ). It was such a bonus to be able to be able to visit with each other, eat breakfast on the patio together, but also still have our own place.

We rented a car in St. Thomas and drove around the island, dinners, grocery, etc. We put our car on the ferry and took it to St. Johns for the day to explore that island and all the wonderful secluded beaches it has to offer. ( FYI There is only 1 rental car company that lets you take your car on the car ferry)
We had professional family pictures taken on the beach right outside the condo- it was a beautiful location. My kids loved the 2 level pool at the condo with a view right into sapphire beach.
Special thanks to Phil and Angela- their place was very nice and clean and they have thought of everything! Beach chairs, coolers, towels and all the kitchen appliances you would need.
This was an awesome family vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Daneille! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and that having the two condos together worked out well! The boat trips to the BVIs and St John are amazing...part of the experience in the islands that we love as well. Please come back and stay with us!!!!!! :)

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd stay at Sea Glass at Sapphire Beach and we absolutely love the place. Phil and Angela are excellent hosts and offer plenty of advice to help you find things and have a great stay. Everything was clean and ready for relaxation when we arrived. The views from this place are just incredible. I can't stop looking at the water from the patio. One of my favorite things to do at Sea Glass is watch the sunrise every morning. It's always beautiful. It rises right in the center of your view of St John and Tortola from your patio seat. It's great with coffee! You get a front row seat to a spectacular beginning of your day. It's well worth the effort. We really enjoy Fish Tails and Island Time Pub in Red Hook. Fish Tails has the best Seafood we've found and it's so convenient. We ate there twice and it was great both times. Island Time Pub pizza is outstanding. Nice relaxing atmosphere as well. We spent more time on St John on this trip than we were able to last time and that was great. We like browsing around and eating in the shops and dining areas of Mongoose Junction. We ate at The Ocean Grill and Deli Grotto a couple of times each. Good stuff! We also discovered a new place called Rhumb Lines that was outstanding. It's an oriental fusion Thai kind of place and the food was fantastic. It seemed to be the trendy place to be but was still a laid back atmosphere like anywhere on St John. We snorkeled a few places and found a bunch of Sea Turtles grazing in the shallow waters of Maho Bay. That was fun! I was determined to find turtles on this trip and wasn't disappointed. My favorite overall place to snorkel was right there at Sapphire Beach. There is plenty to see if you are experienced, and it's a good place to learn how if you are a beginner. Our favorite Day of our trip was a Day-Sail trip to the British Virgin Islands on the Breakaway, located right next door in the Sapphire Beach marina. I can't imagine going back to the Islands and NOT taking at least one day-sail somewhere. It's the best way to see a lot of stuff in a short time. We will definitely be going back to Sea Glass as soon as we get another opportunity. It's located in the most convenient location we could ask for on St Thomas. Everything we like is nearby. Thanks Phil and Angela!
