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

If you are looking to unwind/relax from the typical stresses of the world go no further.

  • 5 of 5

Susan and Mark have a lovely condo in a very prime location on St. Thomas USVI. The ability to walk directly out to the beach from our 1st floor unit was ideal. Additionally, the condo is in one of the quietest complexes of all the resort community located on Sapphire Beach.

Our 1 year anniversary trip to St. Thomas was incredible. We both have very high pressure and mentally taxing careers, which this trip was the dose of medicine needed to recalibrate our thoughts to move forward with our lifelong goals and aspirations. Overall, if you are looking to unwind/relax from the typical stresses of the world go no further.

Accommodation Highlights:

• First and foremost, the owners of this property are refreshingly welcoming. I was 100% at ease, and ready to move forward with the reservation after talking with Susan over the phone. The phone call was very unexpected, but I was confident in our final decision after the brief introductory call. After our commitment was made we received a very useful packet of information about St. Thomas and things to do on the island.

• The unit was very clean, and appeared to have been updated/remodeled from initial construction

• We always felt safe with a security checkpoint to enter the resort community, in addition to a guard walking the property during the day. The security overall was effective and non-evasive.

• There were ample towels/clothes during our week stay.

• Electric Grill - We used the electric grill located on the balcony daily, which we were able to cook some exquisite meals during our stay.

Location Benefits:

• The local grocery store (Food Center) was in close proximity the condo, and also on the way from the STT airport.

• Day Say Excursion:

○ The NewHorizon's day-sail, which we highly recommend, is within walking distance to this condo (marina is next to condo complex).

• St. John (Cinnamon Bay, Trunk Bay)

○ The ferry from Redhook (St. Thomas) to Cruz Bay (St. John) is within 5 minutes of the Condo

○ Ferry/Wait time to Trunk Bay was about 1 hr, which was well worth the journey. Trunk Bay was our favorite beach. (Top 10 beach in the world per Discover Travel Channel)

• Megans Beach Only 15 minutes away. (Top 10 beach in the world per Discover Travel Channel)

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.

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

This is a nice property with an excellent location. You are right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing holiday over the Christmas break. We were sent plenty of information by the owner, and there are all the amenities in the condo you would expect and want. Being right next to the Marina was a bonus when booking trips for snorkeling or dinner cruises on a sail boat. Do look in the condo for discount flyers. We did not find them until after, and they were 20% off, which would have been a considerable saving. The owner, Sue, sent plenty of information on the area and restaurants, which really helped orient us to the local area. Burgers in the Tap and Stile were excellent. Two minor gripes: The safe did not work, for the whole time we were there. And the internet access was terrible. Overall though and excellent holiday and we would go back!

Owner's Response: Hi Lori, So happy that you enjoyed your stay at the condo at Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina. Glad that you were able to take advantage of the sailing excursions offered right at Sapphire. These sailing trip can be loads of fun and it's a good way to see the natural beauty and meet new friends. As far as the safe not working, I wish I had known this when you first discovered it. I always tell guests not to hesitate to call me or our housekeeper anytime if you need anything at all during your stay. We certainly could have resolved the issue immediately for you if we had known you were having an issue with the safe. Next time, please remember that we are always there 24/7 for our guests. Internet access and the sometimes intermittent service is a part of our living on island. Sorry the service wasn't what you expected. Please keep us in mind for your next trip. We would love to have you back as our guests... Susan

Breathe taking view!!!

  • 5 of 5

E-107 was everything I expected and more. The view from the back porch was amazing. Waking up to the sounds of the waves and relaxing in the evening wind blowing and the sounds of the waves was absolutely amazing. Very Relaxing. Great amenities. Very comfortable bed. The kitchen was well stocked. We couldn't be happier. We will definitely be returning.
