Overview

East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

This condo is the most dazzling units on Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina. Everything is new and of luxury quality. This just recently renovated condo for two persons has an ultra modern granite kitchen with designer appliances, cookware and utensils, an exquisite all marble and glass tile bath with walk in shower and designer towels. The living room has a large sectional leather sofa, hand made designer furniture and two flat screen televisions. Mahogany is utilized in the bedroom with hand made designer bed, dresser, flat screen television and high count linen.

The condo is literally a stone's throw from the Caribbean Sea and directly on the beach. What makes the 'Glass House on the Sea' so special is that it is are located on the coveted trade wind side (eastern) of the Sapphire Beach property where there is always a breeze with perfect temperature. The condo is on the second floor of building E with a 270 degree view that faces both east and south/north (most units at Sapphire have a 180 degree view with neighbors on both sides). This gives one the advantage of a spectacular view of the sun and moon rising and setting each day. The condo is also a corner units with no neighbors to their south/north which allows for more privacy and a very special vista of the marina. 'The Glass House on the Sea', unlike most condos on Sapphire Beach, has it all - contemporary luxury, the sea, a view of St. John and the British Virgin Islands, sunrise/sunset, the moon coming over the mountain (St. John), the marina and more square footage and privacy (corner units).

Being only 20 feet from the water's edge on the second floor gives one the impression of floating on a ship. The 'Glass House on the Sea' is a premier condo in a gated community and fully equipped with all the conveniences of home. The beachfront condo has been completely renovated in a very contemporary style from floor to ceiling. Designer bath towels and linen add to the luxury. The living rooms are all sliding glass doors on two sides and opens to a large and fully furnished balcony where one can dine or just relax with a stunning backdrop of the sea and the marina. This condo is the most beautiful unit at Sapphire - both interior and exterior.

Sapphire Beach has two beaches, a fresh water pool and many beach amenities. The village of Red Hook is only five minutes away and compliments the resort with restaurants, food market, shopping and boat excursions to many nearby islands.

For those who desire more space one can also rent 'Hammock in Heaven'. When renting both, one has the capacity for four persons with the luxury of double interior space and double balcony space.

So come and enjoy the privacy, the trade winds, the beauty of the vista and the music of the surf.

Wonderful place and perfect location !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay so much. The Sapphire location is close to everything we wanted and the ocean lapping right outside is perfect. Quiet and restful I like the spot. Marina next door is cool and offers a lot of things to do and see. Beach time was laid back and beautiful. I would recommend it to anyone and will be back. Thanks for being a great host.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Glass Houses on the Sea was just perfect. When we opened the door, the view just took our breath away. The condo was spotless and very comfortable.

Sapphire Beach was just lovely. The water is so nice. Although we didn't snorkel, there were quite a few that did, and they said they saw loads of fish and turtle sightings.

The condo is close to Red Hook. We ate at Pesce twice. Very good. We also took the ferry to St. John and had a wonderful dinner at Vista Mare.

We would highly recommend Glass Houses.

Very nice, relaxing stay with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Lodging was everything you would expect, nothing disappointing. Views and sounds of ocean is so relaxing. Eating opportunities are numerous and taxi rides are so inexpensive to anywhere on the island. Accommodations are just what you need. Great place to stay.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This owner spares no expense, we truly felt at home in this beautiful, fully updated and modern condo. Soft towels, wonderful bedding, nice beach towels and more to make our stay comfortable.

We loved the privacy of the 2nd floor with the view of the ocean out front and the beautiful marina from the side. We loved the proximity to Red Hook for food and fun from this location on Sapphire Beach. Sapphire Beach offered great snorkeling and if you didn't have lunch plans you could grab delicious food from the beach shack right there on the beach. You could find shade under the trees on the beach or lay out on one of the free beach chairs that come with the condo rental. Enjoy!

We had the best corner view condo in the whole complex!

  • 5 of 5

Saphire Beach Resort Marina is located in a very convenient location. There was not one glitch from planning... check-in... checkout and getting groceries! Thanks to the owner's preparation of a welcome letter with suggestions... It was a comfortable experience! Condo was clean, updated, with a Beatiful view! We plan to return! Checkin & Checkout was very convenient. We liked the code locks instead of using keys!
