Space 600 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, Full Bath, Queen bed

Sapphire Beach is the finest beach on St Thomas, and this unit is a professionally renovated condo on the first floor. The glass wall faces the beach and ocean - you walk out the wall to wall patio doors onto the beach sand. The ocean is 100 feet away, the unit is next to the pool for family or sunbathing convenience, and the view out of the full wall glass doors is tropical paradise. Lite lunch and restaurant facilities are available on site and within walking distance. Red Hook is one mile away - a very short car or taxi ride to a town which is active both day and night for restaurants, pubs, shopping, music, and if you want to travel further, Red Hook has the ferry service to other islands. And by the way, if you need a car - and we highly recommend getting one - we have one to rent.

Amazing place, amazing views, amazing time!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of this rental. The owner was more then helpful with recommendations or anything else we could need. The location is perfect, 2 minutes from Red Hook and on the beach, just minutes from everything else, cabs were typically waiting up by the entrance. Everything was as advertised, beautiful views, pool and beach just a few steps away. Place is very clean and well stocked. Only bad part of the trip was when we had to leave. We will 100% be going back next year.

The condo was excellent, the resort property could use more updates and maintainece

  • 5 of 5

The condo was awesome,clean,cool decor,spectacular veiw,and location.could be stocked with more toilet paper when your there for 9days as we were ,but thats minor.the snorkeling on the reefs right off the beach was very good,some of the best ive done ,and i have done quite a bit,the wild life iguanas, crabs,lizards,birds,and a little duck that came to our patio every morning was so cool our 5 and 7 year old girls loved that and the pool,which was good but could be maintained with better water quality.the ocean beautiful colors and waves very soft,beach combing was fun theres some shells awesome coral and some seaglass.having the rental car from chris was a must and a excellent extra (thanks chris!) People at resort are super friendly its a community atmosphere. Our experience with chris and his condo was perfect, replies quickly to questions and concerns and condo was a pleasure to stay.if you have an island wide power failure as we did keep fridge,and condo closed up as much as possible,take the patio chairs,snacks and drinks 6feet out into the sand and listen to the ocean,and look at the thousands of stars it is an incredible and rare experience! Shopping, restaurants, are super close .the only suggestions i could give would be to the management of the resort would be to update and maintain it,the tennis courts not useable, parking lot is full of big holes and rough driving,and there is an abandoned building with the pool that looks like it was once a restaurant, bar,that is semi boarded up run down and access blocked by piled up old chairs.thats an eyesore and certainly takes away from the gorgeous area...but we just pretended it was an old pirate hide know make lemonaid out of anyway my wife,my 2 girls 5&7 and myself had a wonderful, beautiful, family vacation,and are planning on returning next year or sooner....and that in its self speaks volumes because we love to go different locations for new experiences oh yeah for you snorkelers we swam with spotted eagle ray,Caribbean reef squid,trunk fish,barracuda, sting rays,small jelly fish out by the tip of the peninsula, and so many other fish,damsels,snapper,wrasse's,ect it was awesome FYI.thank you again to chris and all involved in making our vacation the best one yet!!!!!

We've been to St Thomas numerous times, and this trip was one of our absolute favorites. The location of the suite was just perfect, close to all amenities and the ferry to St. John. I would recommend this vacation destination to anyone and everyone. We're definitely going back again !

Beautiful unit, awesome view!

  • 4 of 5

This is a relatively fresh renovation unit. The complex is a little run down, but this unit is very nice. The convenience of being able to walk out of your unit right onto the sand is fantastic, and the view is spectacular. You can see St Johns every day, and the British Virgin Islands in the background. It is located close to Red Hook, which has many dining options (we had pizza at Island Time Pub - which was fantastic, with a great view, and we had Italian at Pisano's which was very good.) It is also conveniently located near the ferry that takes you to St. Johns, and elsewhere. St. Johns is only $7 each way, and goes every hour on the hour. We spent a few days exploring St Johns, as it was so convenient to get to. There is also a taxi area on the grounds of the association. The majority of the time there were taxi's waiting there, or only a short wait until one arrived. And we went during the "off" season - the week of Memorial Day. I would definitely recommend the unit, and the Islands are a hidden jewel in the Caribbean.

The owner offers a vehicle for rental - we didn't take him up on the offer. In retrospect, it may have been a good idea. The taxi's are always available, but run $10 (with tip) each way for two people to get into Red Hook, and get more expensive the further you go. If you intend to explore the island, definitely take them up on the Car. You cannot really walk into Red Hook. I am a runner, and the issue isn't distance. The issue is the streets are narrow, lots of curves (you become hidden to the drivers until last second) and there are NO sidewalks here. A dirt trail runs a portion of the distance to Red Hook, but it is very narrow, and doesn't avoid all the curves and blind spots. If you don't have a car, you will need to take taxi's.

We have been coming here since 2005 nothing has changed literally

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in buildings d&e on the ground level since 2005 in many of the units I can't think of a place on st Thomas where you can walk a few yards and be in the water and on top of that have breathtaking view this unit d103 is very modern inside and one of the nicest well presented units that we have stayed in the only issue I have with this unit is there isn't much breeze when not on the beach we spend all of our time on the porch the first couple of visits to this property we did all of the touristy stuff now the only time we leave the property is to go to the grocery

The parking lot and the buildings by the pool are still horrible but they always have been the owners of the condos have no control of that we can stay most anywhere we want but always come back to sapphire

WHY because it is outstanding and one the most gorgeous views in the islands!!!!!!!!

Fantastic setting. Breathtaking. Resort is "tired."

  • 3 of 5

If someone were to bring this resort back up to its original glory, it would be one of the top destinations in the world. Nevertheless, the incredible beauty of the setting more than compensates. Had a lovely time!
