The second largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Thomas spans 32 square miles of tropical paradise and lies off the coast of Puerto Rico. The island embraces the Atlantic Ocean on the North side and the Caribbean Sea on the South. It is located in the northwest corner of the US Virgin Islands. Its mountainous peaks rise to 1,550 feet above sea level, providing breathtaking views from almost every direction. Drake's Seat is particularly famous for its vistas. The capital of the Virgin Islands is Charlotte Amalie, a charming and gracious town named in 1692 for the Queen of Denmark. A natural deep water port, it has one of the most stunning harbors in the world. It is also known as a mecca for duty-free shopping in the Caribbean Islands. Our newly remodeled condo is located on beautiful Sapphire Beach which boasts a wide white sand beach and great snorkeling.
St. Thomas can be a quiet retreat or a destination for visitors who enjoy the bustle of duty-free Shopping, fine dining, and exciting nightlife. Sports and activities are abundant on St. Thomas. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the George and Tom Fazio-designed Mahogany Run course. St. Thomas is also well known for its world-class yachting and sport fishing. A number of dive shops serve the island and provide a safe, comfortable scuba experience for beginners or experienced divers. Advanced certification courses are available here, as well as complete instruction for beginners
We retired early as we'd much rather travel than go to an office each day. We are by no means wealthy and owning apiece of paradise doesn't come cheaply. Renting our condo when we can't be here helps us meet expenses and we know our guests will love it here. Many return year after year and become part of our extended Sapphire family.

After visiting this beautiful island twice on a cruise we decided a longer stay was in order. After coming a few years for a one week stay we decided that wasn't enough time either. So, the search was on. We looked at properties all over the island and decided no place but Sapphire would do as a second home. We haven't regretted our decision for a moment. The beautiful white sand beach that greets us each morning, the great snorkeling and million dollar views make this a place we love coming home to again and again.
Sapphire Beach has it all: beautiful white sand, great snorkeling and million dollar views. We have Seagrape trees for those who crave the shade, a wide sand beach for those who want the sun. There's a marina on site with charter boats for day or sunset sails and power boats for fishing or going to other islands or snorkeling spots. Or rent a pocket yacht and go on your own. There's also para sailing and jet skis available.
Wonderful family vacation

Sapphire Beach is beautiful, and the condo is great. Since many of the other reviewers were couples, I'll provide the "traveling with kids" perspective. We have two children, 8 and 10. The air mattress in the living room was fine for them--they loved to lie there and watch the ocean! The condo is just as described and shown in the pictures--very clean, and everything in working order. The view is EXACTLY as described, and can't be beat! Marsha provides nice extras like DVD's, a cooler with ice packs for picnics, and of course the use of snorkeling equipment and beach chairs from the local dive shop is a great benefit. If you like to snorkel, the rental costs could really add up otherwise. Speaking of snorkeling--Sapphire is a very good place for this, whether you are a beginner or experienced. We saw tons of fish, a green turtle--even a little moray eel! For those who prefer the pool, it is lovely. There's a separate shallow pool (3 feet) for little ones, and then a five foot pool, right on the ocean.
I would recommend renting a car for at least part of your stay, Budget rental is right on the premises. Red Hook is walking distance (not even a mile) but the roads are narrow and not really walker-friendly. The other option is taxis, which are expensive.
The best thing about Sapphire is that it is very quiet--no nearby bars or restaurants going at all hours. You can easily get to Red Hook if that's what you like, but if you want to fall asleep listening to the waves on the shore and the wind in the palms . . . this is your place!

We had a lovely time at this condo. It is on one of the most beautiful beaches on St. Thomas and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. Your close to the water, the Dive shop has chairs, floats, and even wind surfers you can use for free, and the location is great. You can hear the waves from the condo, and you're only a 5 minute ride from red hook or a 2 minute walk from the Marina.
The condo had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The cooler that was provided was very handy on more than one occasion, and the bed was very comfortable. My husband and I would definitely stay here again!
The property was beautiful. It was clean, had a great view, and all of the appliances worked. It is a great spot to spend your vacation as Sapphire beach is close to Red Hook, where there is restaurants and bars, right on the beach, and has easy access to taxis.
This was wonderful!!! The condo was Exactly as described and couldn't have been happier. Really hope to return again. Soon. Thank you for your letting me "borrow" your Paradise ! Property was well maintained . The beach couldn't have been any closer. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a home away from home!
Wonderful place to stay with very good snorkeling gear and a great selection of movies to watch and well equipped condo. Convenient location to beach, lower pool and marina. Would recommend this unit and area of St. Thomas.
We enjoyed our week at the Sapphire Resort very much, The condo we rented was as described by the owner. I was clean, comfortable and was well equipped with anything you could need. The beach was at your door step and the beach attendant would put your lounge chairs wherever you asked him to. The view from your deck is beautiful but the best is going to sleep with the sound of the ocean waves.
I would highly recommend this unit to anyone.
The only down side to the trip is there is only one restaurant you can walk to.
The condo was very comfortable with every amenity we could have wanted. The view off the balcony with the sound of the waves and breeze putting us to sleep nightly was priceless. This property exceeded our expectations. After viewing many of the other properties during our stay, we agreed we really lucked out to find such a perfect property for our stay. Thank you for an easy rental process and many wonderful memories.

Why Sapphire Beach? Because it's the best one, of course. We've been vacationing in St. Thomas for many years. When it was time to buy we knew where we wanted to be. We've completely remodeled and updated; we know you'll be comfortable here. White sands and good snorkeling, a beautiful view of St. John, convenience to Red Hook and ferries to surrounding islands, close to shopping and fine dining and yet in a secluded gated resort. We chose the second floor so we could leave the sliders open at night and enjoy the sounds of the surf and the island breeze. Leave your daily stresses behind. Our guests enjoy free use of wi-fi, beach chairs and snorkel equipment.
Other Activities: Coral World is a short drive away. This is an educational fun day enjoyed by all ages. Of course St. Thomas is known world wide for the duty free shopping in Charlotte Amalie.
Golf: Mahogany Run Golf Course is well known. A convenient drive from Sapphire.
