Guestbook comments from the owner

We chose this condo after reading lots of reviews about the property itself and this E-107 condo in particular. While we had some reservations as to the general condition of the property, when we opened the door and stepped inside this condo, we knew we had made the right decision. There was a beautiful welcome basket left on the table acknowledging our 25th Anniversary which was such a surprise. The view from the living area was quite spectacular and the water was a mere 30 feet away as described.

The photos of the condo do not do it justice. It is everything and much, much more. It is very evident that the owners care very much about guests having a great experience. We did not want for anything. Susan keeps this condo is great shape, very clean and well-stocked.

While planning for our trip, Susan answered all of our questions, offered some great advice and suggestions, all in a timely manner. She even called us after arrival to be sure we arrived and were happy.

We have already reserved our stay for next year and look forward to making this an annual trip. Thank you Susan and Mark! FIVE STARS

Great vacation, can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week in the condo. We had many choices of where to stay, but after talking with the owner Susan we knew we had to stay here. The owner Susan called to check in on us Upon arrival which was quite comforting! She's very familiar with the island. We had a well stocked kitchen and plenty of linens for the week. To be able to open your slider and walk out onto the beach is heaven. The condo had beach chairs designated to it, so no having to hunt out a spot on the beach. It even a George Forman grill on the patio to cook under the stars and a new large TV in the living room. Snorkel gear was provided in the condo, so all we had to do was walk out our slider and 30feet away were the most colorful fish, sea turtles and coral! I highly recommend this condo!!

OK Location side beach front

  • 3 of 5

Apartment we finally rented was another one similar, provided by owner as the original one selected had an issue and was not available for our dates.

The overall apartment is OK, the beach in front of the apartment cannot be used as there are trees and corals, you need to walk 5min inside same complex to get to the beach

Parking lot, looks like the moon, full of craters, and some other apartments were under renovation, construction.

Overall I would say it was OK, but for us it seems little be overprice for what it is

Beachfront memories

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Three Palms condo for a week. We found the condo to be everything that was advertised and more. The view is simply spectacular, so much so that instead of going out to dinner every night like we would normally do while on vacation, we got take out, or cooked in the kitchen and ate dinner on the patio while watching and listening to the waves.

Susan is extremely well organised, and was very helpful instructing us to rent a car instead of taking taxis. The parking at Red Hook can be tricky, but after a few trips you catch on as to where to find spots.

If you are looking to book a condo in USVI, stop looking, you have found the place.

Owner's Response: Mark & Maria, So happy that you enjoyed your stay at our condo at Sapphire Beach. I always tell guests that they can fill their itineraries with as many activities as they want but once you settle in, you can also do nothing at all but relax and count the sails go by. The choice is yours and we're happy you found your own paradise. Please come back to visit again.... Mark & Susan

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks in January and loved it. The condo is well equipped and had everything we needed. View is amazing. Quiet location steps from the water, pool and marina. I didn't snorkel directly in front of the condo because of the rocks, but others did and said it was great. Snorkeling from the beach in front of the A building was good too. Red Hook is only a mile away and has lots of great restaurants. We went to St John one day, but next time I will leave the car on St Thomas and just do a taxi on St John. We are already talking about going back!

Owner's Response: Hi Becca, So happy to hear you and your family had a great time at our condo. Snorkeling is one of the highlights our guests enjoy and what you have is some of the best on St Thomas, right at Sapphire Beach in front of the condo! Thank you for sharing and do come back again. Mark & Susan

Great view, nice location

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was nice, great location. Pool is lovely,but the complex is under construction and you need to go to the neighboring beach to swim in the ocean because of sharp coral.

Owner's Response: Hi Joseph. Yes, we did have some refurbishment to our property going on during the off-season months. As with anyone who lives on a destination island vacation spot, we have to carefully choose when to do our remodeling and that seems to be the slower months. I am sorry that you had to experience this, but I hope you will be happy with the improvements when you return. As for the coral being "sharp", this indicates you were likely walked on the reef.... A HUGE "No-No" in our world. Coral reefs are very fragile as well as home to many varieties of sea life. We try to do whatever we can to stay off the coral reefs so that others can enjoy this fragile eco-system for generations to come. Please do some research on this subject and do come back again. Mark & Susan
