Our condo is a corner unit which gives you the opportunity to see the beach from two sides and also offers the opportunity to relax in our confortable hammock!

The Dive Shop on the beach is open for business. Here you can rent kayaks, stand up paddle (SUP) boards, wave runners and foam beach floats, or buy some basic beach sundries like sun block, lotions, sunglasses etc.

So many options as you plan your day.

We also have gorgeous multi-level cascading pool which is surrounded by the beautiful Caribbean Sea.

Or sit back and relax while watching the boats coming in and out of the marina.

Currently on property there is a snack bar " Banana Cabana"- located between B and C buildings serving hamburgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches along with a variety of drinks, and Sapphire Grill offers lunch and dinner- a short walk up the hill past the marina and 'F' building. Both places also provide beach service, so you don't need to get out of your chair.

If you're really tired after the day Señor Pizza is a phone call away and will deliver right to your room.

Menus for other local restaurants are also located inside an information booklet inside the condo.

If you're in the mood to explore- The Virgin Islands National Park on St. John is easily accessible by ferry from Red Hook. Catch a crab Cruz Bay dock and go explore the park, soak in the beauty of Trunk bay, Caneel Bay, Cinnamon Bay or hike any one of the 22 trails.

Sand chairs are included in the rental. You may want to check out the ruins of the Annaberg Plantation where they produced sugar, molasses and rum. Participate in a demonstration on basket weaving or bread baking.

So bring your bikinis and flip flops and be ready to relax on the beautiful Caribbean sun!

Why Mihaela Cozma chose St. Thomas

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina- We have always lobed Sapphire beach for the gorgeous waters and the exceptional snorkeling. The reefs are amazing. The beach front offers plenty well having shade trees off to one side for that quick afternoon nap. No other community closer to the water. The water edge is literally fewer than 30 steps from our patio. Cannot get any better than this!!!

What makes this condo unique

Yoga classes on the beach twice a week. Volleyball net on the beach. Arrange for a massage Spa2go VI either on the beach or in your own room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in D101. The condo was spectacular in every way. The views were wonderful from every window. Rosanne has equipped the condo with every convenience. We were so comfortable during hurricane Irene. The pool area was so convenient from our lanai....the hammock was so appropriate for easy living and comfort. If you want excellence and detail in every way the unit was the greatest. We hope to return after the first of the year. Thanks again Rosanne and Darrell

Beachfront Gem

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for my son during his stay on the island. The property and setting are every bit as good as all the reviews suggest. The condo is spotless, with much attention to detail inside and out. Mihaela has made certain the condo has everything to make your stay perfect, and the location has so much to offer. She was a pleasure to work with and quick to respond to my questions while booking and prior to our arrival. I highly recommend this condo if you need to unplug and relax on a beautiful beach. We will definitely visit again!

Amazing Time!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for our honeymoon and it was exactly what we were looking for. The condo is exactly as it is listed and it contained a lot of extra's. The owner was also very nice and was willing to answer any questions that we had. The owner also gives you several pages of information to help you get around town. This condo is amazing and we only left a few days ago and I already miss it.

One of the best places I've stayed - will definitely be back!

  • 5 of 5

I almost hesitate to write this glowing review because I want to keep this place a secret, but really it was the perfect island getaway. As for the location of this specific unit, it could NOT be more perfect: end unit, wide patio (with hammock), direct access to beach and (very clean) pool, and super quiet. I just strolled out the patio door with my coffee every morning to watch the sunrise over the water, and it was like something out of a movie. Oh, and the property itself is ideally close to the ferry dock (literally right down the road) as well as some yummy restaurants/bars and an awesome grocery store (Moe's).

Inside, everything was clean and neat, and I was so impressed by the care and attention to detail. There were clear instructions for everything in the unit, as well as suggestions for food, adventure and fun. A huge selection of guidebooks (all current for 2016) offered ideas for every adventure level, along with maps of the islands and magazines with all the information a visitor could possibly need. In addition, the towels were fresh and soft, the bed super comfy, the bathroom spacious (and the shower nice and hot), the kitchen clean and well-stocked, and the living area cozy with a big TV. We felt so at home! :)

My only wish is that the bar/restaurant by the pool had been open, but it looked like they were undergoing some renovation. All in all though, this place was an absolute gem. and we will certainly be returning. Thank you for an incredible stay!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice place to stay. The accommodations were exactly as I had expected, and I really appreciated the mid-week towel change and when they brought in extra necessity's. I found this was really a must since you really don't care to pack and bring beach towels on vacation and yet after using them repeatedly it gets to the point were you really need fresh ones.

Met all my expectations

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our one week stay and the only thing I can think about is being able to book a return trip as soon as possible! It is an absolutely beautiful location with amazing views all around! Everything was very clean and well equipped for all needs! The location is equally amazing with the proximity to Red Hook and to be able to drive all the way up to Magen's Bay in a short amount of time. Evenings laying in the hammock listening to the waves and looking at the lights of St. John were spectacular! Mihaela was extremely responsive anytime I had a question or encountered an issue. Also, she provided amazing information before we arrived in terms of things to do, restaurants to try and where everything was located in the condo and how to access it. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone and I will undoubtedly return in the future. Looking forward to it!!
