Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 2 people

At Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina the view is absolutely breathtaking, offering a post card view of St John and the British Virgin Islands. Our condo is located about fifteen feet from the waters edge on the second floor. The view makes it look as though you are floating on the Caribbean Sea. You may spend your evenings sitting on the chairs on the balcony and taking in the view, the lights on the other islands twinkling in the distance and the pleasure boats entering and departing the marina. The resort offers two fine beaches; one for swimming and the other in front of our building which is better suited for snorkeling. The fresh water pool is only 150 feet away.

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is located at the East End of the Island, we are approximately 12 miles from Cyril E. King Airport (45 minute ride), we are known as the shopping capital of the Caribbean offering Duty Free shopping in Charlotte Amalie 30 minutes away. In the section of the island known as Red Hook, five minutes away from the condo, you can catch the Ferry to St. John, Tortorla, Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke. Attractions offered by the island include Atlantis Submarine, BOB Underwater Adventure three and a half hour aboard 60 foot yacht, diving and snorkeling, Coral World, Divi Carina Bay Casino, Casino in St. Croix, Pistarckle Theater, Theater in Tillett Gardens, Air conditioned theater with more than 100 seats, Skyride to Paradise Point, and V.I. National Park on St. John. For the golfers in the group Mahogany Run, 18 hole golf course.

About Marsha Heller

My husband and I have been married for 39 years now, we have two daughters and 8 grandsons and 3 granddaughters. My husband is retired from the Bridgeport, Ct fire department but owns a construction company which pours concrete for house foundations and additions. I work for eleven different small building companies doing bookkeeping. We have owned at Sapphire Beach for 22 years now and still continue to love it.

Marsha Heller purchased this condo in 1989

Why Marsha Heller chose East End

Went there on a vacation with our children 23 years ago now, they were still in the process of building the condo's. We fell in love with the peacefullness and beauty of the area. When you sit in the condo it looks like your on a cruise ship and your just floating on the water, that's how close you are to the beach. Now our grandchildren love going, in fact they think we can't go without them.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, peaceful, beauty, most of the year a wonderful breeze. The friendliness of the local people. The activities available jet skiing,fishing, snorkeling and diving. I can still stay in contact with the world with the high speed internet service, so I'm able to continue working.

Awesome views

  • 5 of 5

We loved Marsha's condo! It is very comfortable, clean, cheerful and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well equiped and we enjoyed cooking some of our meals. The bathroom is spacious and we especially liked the double sink and the large step-in shower with new tiles. The king size bed was very comfortable. We had our morning coffee and an evening drink every day in the high back chairs on the balcony and admired the ocean and beautiful islands. The beach is very quiet but the ocean was still chilly in March on the east side of the island so we swam in the pool.

We did not think that we would feel comfortable driving on the left so we did not rent a car. Sam was very helpful: he picked us up at the airport and took us to the supermarket to buy groceries on the way to our condo.We were within walking distance from the restaurant and bars in Red Hook but the roads are narrow with no shoulder so we hopped on the little open air bus that runs right by Sapphire Beach Resort.

It was a wonderful, peaceful vacation and we would rent Marsha's condo again.

Very very good

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very beautiful. It was remodeled, mattress was very comfortable, bathroom was big enough for two. It is located nearby the marine restaurants which was great for us. It has a great view. The only setback was that some buildings in the complex are under construction. Great apartment.

Stay at Sapphire

There were no surprises in the accommodations. The place was immaculate, with the promised spectacular view of St. John and the BVIs. I will definitely come again!
