Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Location location location

From your first sight of sapphire beach resorts you will know your at a special place where you can play or just relax and unwind.

Our condominium's location is considered one of the prime spots within the resort. Located right on the beach & only a few footsteps away from the multi-tiered pool and ocean. The condominium offers spectacular views of st. John's United States Virgin Islands & the British Virgin Islands.

In the evening, sit out on your private patio with someone special and watch St John's come to life or head to town and party with the locals. Please read our wonderful reviews and then come see for yourself why everyone loves our place and why we consider it Paradise!

Imagine yourself on a beautiful Caribbean island far away from all distractions of everyday life. You may choose to start your day lying on the beach with a tropical drink in hand and cool trade winds brushing your side. From there you may simply meander to a spot by the pool, or take a dip in the warm waters off Sapphire Beach and do some snorkeling with turtles, tropical fish, and rays. Or, you may choose to simply sit out on the deck and catch up on some reading and occasionally glimpse out to catch the beautiful views of the turquoise Caribbean waters, world-renowned white-sand Sapphire Beach, St. John, and Tortola. This is all before you head out to do some water sports at the onsite Sapphire Beach Marina, world-class shopping, or other island activities.

This dream can become a reality when you stay at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina.

Take in the breathtaking views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean and the surrounding islands from your private patio. Relax and enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning and your favorite beverage in the evening while watching the boats come in and out of the marina. The pool is located just steps away from our condo!

Our cozy condo is the perfect place to get away from it all. With a king sized bed and a queen sized Basset sleeper sofa, a newly remodeled bathroom, along with a work station, kitchen and the beach at our door step you will never want to leave.

Clean, comfortable private corner unit with enough activity for entertainment and plenty of quiet for your enjoyment.

Whether you crave excitement or relaxation Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina is the perfect location!

Our condo is located beach level in D building, just a few steps away from our multilevel cascading freshwater pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea and the beach!

First rule is to relax and enjoy. I suggest copious amount of sunscreen and chill time and hydration fluids served alongside good food. Beach is a 1500 foot stroll with no traffic to contend with.

Our beautiful condo has recent renovations and is tastefully decorated with the conveniences of home -equipped kitchen with convection/microwave oven, glass cook top, coffee maker, toaster, blender, full size refrigerator and all the utensils and pans that you can ever need to feel like cooking at home! In order to bring home to you, we also provide all the basic spices- salt, pepper, garlic powder, condiments, coffee filters, sweeteners and creamer.

To make it really fun, we also equipped our patio with a George Foreman grill!

Our newly renovated bathroom, with a stoned tiled shower and double sink awaits you stocked with plush bath towels, beach towels, hotel sized soaps, shampoos, conditioner, bath gel and a hair dryer all!

The bedroom area includes a beautiful king size bed (which has the most beautiful view- in the back you can see the beach), flat screen TV, DVD. The living area has the most comfortable sofa pull out bed queen size bed and of course, a second flat screen TV. The living area also has a teak dining set and a dining table for four which overlooks to the amazing views from the patio! Being a corner unit our condo has the advantage and at the same time gives you the opportunity to see the beach from two sides!

But the best part of our condo is our comfortable hammock located on our patio from where you enjoy both beaches from our resort!

We equip the place with 3 snorkel gear, beach chairs, outing coolers , beach floats and noodles!

Snorkel, wind-surf, floats and sea kayaks are available steps away at the Dive-in dive shop. Go to on-site Marina to take a boat or wave runner out!

Award winning snorkeling, the marina and water sports are only footsteps away from this condo in paradise. Take the ferry to St. John or a day trip to the BVI.

The resort itself is located on one of the world's most beautiful Caribbean beaches. The resort is right on the beach- the beautiful Sapphire Beach, shaded with palms, and majestic in its beautiful jewel-toned water from aquamarine water near the beach to deep sapphire blue in the distance. There are two beaches on the property-half-mile white sandy beach and coral beach. If you like snorkeling, you will have chance to see not only Caribbean fish, but also see turtles and sting ray. All this from our beach!

There is also a multilevel cascading freshwater pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea. Also you can relax while watching the boats coming in and out of the marina.

Enjoy complimentary beach chairs (ask attendant), beach towels and snorkeling gear available in the unit. Other beach activities available in on-site water sport center include snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and sunset sailing. Also you can take a charter to the BVI or deep sea fish. Sunset cruises or day sailing adventures are available. Day sail over to St. John, and Trunk Bay. You can cruise a catamaran to Jost Van Dyke in the BVI, and the famous Soggy Dollar Bar. Also if you wish you can take a speedboat to Virgin Gorda and The Baths.

Sapphire Beach is located on the east end of the island five minutes from Red Hook. Red Hook provides all conveniences and grocery shopping, along with many additional dining options. Ferry service to St. John and the British Virgin Islands is also available from Red Hook.

ABOUT THE SAPPHIRE BEACH RESORT AND MARINA:

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina (SBRM) is the only property that is located right on the Sapphire Beach. It is considered a residential condominium property at an awesome location. Our condo is in the 'D' building, on the beach.

ABOUT THE ISLAND OF ST. THOMAS: The condo is located on the East End of St. Thomas, USVI.

Sapphire beach is known for its pristine marine life, white sand beach and breathtaking views of turquoise Smith Bay. St. Thomas is a 32-square mile island in the Caribbean. It boats world famous beaches and duty free shopping.

Sapphire beach is half a mile turquoise sandy beach where you enjoy all your water sports or you can relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of the ocean waves on the white beach, or if you want to shop. The capital of Charlotte Amalie has what you are looking for. This deep water port, home to cruise ships from around the world, is known for its duty free shops with jewelry, electronics, liquor, perfumes, purses and plenty more.

The USVI offers the perfect combination of history, stunning Caribbean nature and opportunities to explore all the Virgin Islands to make the most of your vacation in the USVI. On St. Thomas, you'll want to make sure and visit downtown Charlotte Amalie for historic sites including restored 17th Century Warehouse, The 99 Steps' leading up to Blackbeard's Tower, Bluebeard's Castle, the Seven Arches Museum, or Fort Christian Museum which was built in 1672 and is the oldest building in St. Thomas.

GETTING AROUND:

You can catch a taxi to and from resort beaches. Other beaches can be accessed by taxi however you may need to arrange return pick-up. Public transportation is an option for some. Beach hopping by rental car is super easy; the East End beaches are all within 2-10 minutes driving time from each other.

You can also rent a car at the airport or Sapphire Beach. A car is certainly no necessary but handy. You won't put many miles on your car, but it will save time. The cars travel on the left side of the road, so be careful if you rent one. Of course the island has plenty of taxis

Taxis are available at the taxi site on site.

THINGS TO DO: This condo boats prime beachfront location next to the pool. Convenient location; less than one mile from Red Hook shops, grocery stores, restaurants, and car/passenger ferry dock to St. John and BVI's.

For breakfast, lunch or beach drinks, there is even a bar/grill located on the property which serves tropical refreshments as well as hamburgers, hot dogs and special Caribbean Drinks. New lunch-time Beach Bar Sapphire just opened on the beach close to the Dive Shop featuring the beast ma-hi ma-hi sandwich and live band music on Sunday's. Another great restaurant/bar is at the neighboring 'green roof' condominium resort, a short 5-min walk above the marina.

Currently on property there is a snack bar "Banana Cabana"- located between B and C buildings serving hot dogs, hamburgers and lots of sandwiches along with a variety of drinks- cold drinks, cocktails, etc.

If you' want to stay indoor Domino & Señor Pizza is a phone call away and will deliver right to your room. Inside of our condo we have menus from other local restaurants!

Washer and dryer about 80 feet away alongside the property office. Buy tokens/soap at the office during business hours, laundry is always open.

Free parking permit must be obtained from office during business hours if you have a rental car.

Interaction with Guests

I am available by phone for any questions or concerns regarding the condo and will respond promptly. I have a maintenance man nearby if a repair were needed. Easy to rent and not to want to leave!

If you like to travel with family, we can open the patio doors between the units and so you can enjoy the large patio of both units together!

Please call us anytime, if you are interested in booking with us!

We own the adjoining unit also!

Why Mihaela Cozma chose East End

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

Our stay at D101

  • 4 of 5

We came back to Sapphire Beach after about 20 years from our last visit and stayed in D101 from 7/12-7/19. I was so excited to see the gorgeous beach and views of St. John right from the patio of this unit! The corner first level of D101 is a perfect location, right in the middle of the resort so accessibility to the soft beach, the pool and the marina are all just steps away! We loved the hammock and the visiting 'wildlife'...iguanas and ducks came by every day! Mihaela was extremely attentive and quick to respond with whatever type of message I sent her-text, email, phone call, you name it, she was right on it. You will not find a more gracious host! We had a bit of a problem with the a/c, it only seemed to be working in the back half (bedroom area) of the condo, it was addressed by maintenance guy but not really "fixed". We had our 16 year old daughter and her best friend staying on the pull out and Lord knows, teenagers can sleep under any circumstances, so no biggie. The kitchen was nicely appointed/stocked with everything we needed, we used the Forman grill ALOT, almost every night, but did go into Red Hook once for dinner, ate at the Tap and Stein for amazing burgers and ordered pizza delivery on the last night. We lost power for a couple of hours one day and concerned about our groceries going bad but luckily, it came back before we lost anything.

The snorkeling on Sapphire Beach is amazing, I was out there almost every day! Just have to watch those darn sea urchins! DO NOT STAND ON THE CORAL REEF and you will be able to avoid their spores. They are not poisonous but can leave splinters not easily extracted and can be painful, as my daughter's friend found out. Eventually, as our skin sheds naturally, they make their way to the surface and can be plucked or their make-up of mostly calcium is absorbed into the body. The biggest issue with sea urchins occurs if the site gets infected, but that is with any puncture wound. My daughter's friend is absolutley fine but will never stand up on a reef ever! I loved the condo overall and if you are wanting to stay on Sapphire Beach, I highly recommend D101. I did have some issues with the grounds, but my memory goes back to when it was a resort 20 years ago. Understanding that the old pool bar, for instance, is not part of the condo association and therefore currently abandoned and in distress was something I expected but still saddened by. Still hope to return, thanks:)

Location was FABULOUS!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the location of this unit- situated across from the pool with amazing views and wonderful breeze when sitting outside. It was very clean and had every amenity you could even imagine you would need. Mihaela was attentive and wonderful with texts and emails to make certain we knew where we were going and that we had access when needed. The bathroom has been updated, but not much else, and the price per night reflects that-we could have cared less. The only negative I would say is that the a/c did not work very well, it really never got below 76. We were not certain if this is because it is an end unit or if it needed serviced. We were there for such a short time that we did not bother them about it- just dealt with it. I would highly recommend renting this unit!

Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for my first vacation get away as a single mom with my 3 children. It provided everything we needed for a relaxing, stress free time away from real life. The views were just stunning, the water is amazing and my children really enjoyed snorkeling with the provided gear.

Great view and access to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great except for a few things. The second bedroom was a living area with a hide a bed The hide a bed was very small and the springs were broken and the mattress was very old. I am 6 foot tall and had to sleep at an angle to fit on the mattress. You can't fit 2 people comfortably.

There needs to be more empty cabinet space so the tenant can put food and grocery items away instead of putting them on the countertop and having no room for anything.

We had construction above us for 4 days making noise during the day. They had a water leak and it ran down our bathroom wall getting things wet. Our landlord was on top of things and very apologetic throughout the ordeal. It wasnt her fault. Overall we would come back if some items were addressed.

Owner's Response: Hi, Amy! I'm so sorry to hear that you had problems with the pull out couch in the living room! Usually, the adults should sleep in the bedroom where we have a king size bed and very comfortable. The pull out sofa bed from the living room is for 1 or 2 children, or 1 or 2 teenagers. The mattress from the pull out sofa bed in the living room is a thinner version of a full mattress and is not so comfortable for an adult. I already sent the property manager to replace the mattress, but still will not be comfortable for an adult! Also, you rented the place from me for 2 adults and 1 child and I think you should have slept on the king size bed and avoided not being comfortable. The leak in the bathroom was fixed on the day of your departure and the whole bathroom was repainted. The apartment above us has finished the construction while you being there. I'm sorry for the inconvenience with the water leak that was nothing that I could have prevented from happening! I wish you and all your family all the best and hope to see you again! Best regards, Mihaela Cozma

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything we wanted or needed it to be! The views were beautiful and I'm pretty sure this condo had one of the best views of all of the condos. We really enjoyed the hammock each morning while listening to the waves. We did have one small glitch with the AC after the power went out (which happens occasionally at the resort), but Mihaela and Christopher fixed it ASAP. We couldn't have asked for better hosts. This condo will definitely not disappoint! We cannot wait to go back again.
