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

Fantastic room, great owner, the best time of our lives

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were came here to celebrate the completion of her M.S. Degree, I'm going to list what I loved about this room.

Amazing location

Great beach and close to the pool

The owner was quick with responses to questions

Sapphire beach was amazing, there were tons of fish by the coral, a shark, stingrays everything you would expect from this kind of vacation!

Having the dock a 30 second walk away was the best part. The excursions are so fun and the views are unbelievable

Close to restaurants

There was nothing wrong with this room, it was clean, we were able to cook and store food, everything was beyond what I expected

It was such a good time, we are planing to return for our next vacation

Great Accomodations

  • 4 of 5

The condo was furnished nicely and well-located. We were steps from the beach and I really enjoyed laying the hammock on the patio reading. Mihaela was great as providing us with information prior to our arrival and was very responsive during the trip. There area several amenities in the room to keep you busy, if you so desire, we spent most of our days out enjoying the island. I wish the property managers would step up to improve the overall property as the restaurant no longer exists and the area around the pool has been neglected.

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.
