About Darryl and Debbie Dauenhauer
We used to live in Las Vegas, but now we own two condos at Sapphire Beach; we live in one and we rent this beautiful condo to share with others our love of the island of St. Thomas. We love having such a beautiful beach right outside our door. Swimming, snorkeling, or just relaxing, Sapphire Beach is the best place for all of it and now we have the best of both worlds with a ground floor condo with a direct beach access as well as a two-level villa overlooking St. John that we live in. We hope our guests find Sapphire as enjoyable as we do. We are committed to making sure our guests have a terrific and worry-free vacation, so don't hesitate to contact us if anything needs our attention or if you need any assistance.

Why Darryl and Debbie Dauenhauer chose Estate Smith Bay
You can't get closer to the water than the condos at Sapphire Beach. We love the ground floor convenience of being able to walk right out of your patio door onto the beach. And the soft sand beach access to the beautiful waters is just steps away. Also conveniently located next to the condo is the Sapphire Beach Bar and Beach Buzz coffee shop for quick breakfast and lunch items and island cocktails. And the pool is nearby as well next to Building D. Building A faces north, so you get a great view of Jost Van Dyke and the surrounding islands.
What makes this Condo unique
The proximity to the beach and the overall beauty of Sapphire Beach sold us on "H2Oh What a Beach!" Condo. The convenience of walking right outside your door onto the beach cannot be beat. Lots of great snorkeling right outside your door with a wide variety of colorful tropical fish and other sea creatures (including sea turtles and stingrays) around the reef. And don't forget the land and air creatures that are always there to greet you, including the iguanas, ducks, chickens, roosters, pelicans, laughing gulls, and the neighborhood kitty named "Ocean" - you are never without friends at Sapphire!

These two are definitely super hosts. Their place was clean, well stocked and in paradise They enusured that anything you could think of was in their unit. Very welcoming. Am a clean freak and thier unit was very clean. They were also very responsive to our messages. Would give them more stars if I could. Will recommend this place to our friends. You can tell they take pride in their home.
Thank you, Matt, for the kind words and for staying with us. We are delighted that you enjoyed our condo and we look forward to hosting you again soon.
H2O Oh, WOW!
We loved everything about this unit, except the fact that we only stayed for 2 nights after returning from St John.
Everything in the unit is good quality, well taken care of, and everything you need is included. We loved the welcome package!
We can't wait to stay here again!
Thanks so much for your kind words, Lynn, and we definitely look forward to hosting you for a longer visit next time!
Cannot say enough good things about this listing. Sapphire Beach is gorgeous , and the little condo was very well-equipped and spotlessly clean! From what we could tell, this unit was one of the best-maintained on the property. Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed being able to walk straight out the sliding doors, and across the patio on to the white sands of Sapphire Beach. And the jewel in the crown of this property are the owners. Darryl and Deb absolutely went above and beyond to help our visit to Sapphire Beach and the surrounding area be as special as possible. They seem to think of everything, and they truly want their guests to have a wonderful experience. We look forward to being back next year and staying in this unit again!
H2O is Oh So Beyond Awesome
Best experience ever and we have been multiple times! We loved Sapphire Resort before, but Deb & Darryl made it even more! Highly highly recommend!
Thanks so much for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Do not miss this incredible experience!
This property is the absolutely best location on the island and on the beach. You’re 1 mile from restaurants and the grocery store in Red Hook but honestly you never have to leave the property. There are 3 restaurants super close to the condo. One is beachfront and has live music certain days. The condo is updated and comfortable. Daryl picked us up from the airport for no fee and even had drinks and snacks waiting for us on our arrival. He and Deb made sure we had everything we needed and were wonderful hosts. I can’t wait to go back!
Thanks so much for staying with us, Stephenie. It was great to be able to host you and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Better than the photos!
This condo is a great place to stay on St. Thomas. I walked into the unit and the first view is of the truly sapphire ocean through the sliding glass doors. Fully equipped with all amenities you could need for your stay - beach chairs, towels, snacks, safe, everything needed for cooking. Highly recommend!
Thanks so much for staying with us, Karen. We are delighted you had a good time and enjoyed our condo and the beach!
Located on the east end of St. Thomas, Sapphire Beach is just a mile from Red Hook where you can catch ferries to St. John, British Virgin Islands and other islands. There is a marina right on Sapphire that offers many excursions including deep sea and sport fishing, sailing, tours of other islands, parasailing, jet ski rentals, and sunset cruises. Walking distance to Sapphire Beach Bar and Beach Buzz coffee shop as well as Slice VI restaurant in the neighboring condo complex. Less than a mile from Red Hook featuring many restaurants island ferries and convenient shopping and a market. Just three miles away from more shopping in Tutu Park Mall. Condo is far enough away from Charlotte Amalie so that Sapphire is a peaceful beach, but close enough for quick trips downtown for shopping, more great restaurants, and partying if you like.
