Welcome to Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina. These are individually owned condos. And while the name says "resort" we lack most all the amenities that you would find at a typical resort. For example, there is not a restaurant on site, no spa, no tennis, no cabana boy....but you do get to be in a condo that is closest to the beach in all of St Thomas. You are literally step to the beach with an awesome unobstructed view and the sunrise over St John is unbelievable.

For more pics and a travel guide on Sapphire Beach and Beachtacular! You can access my web site via the links in VRBO. Most all questions you may have can be answered in the travel/vacation guide that is published on my web site. The travel/vacation guide is 10 pages of very useful information that is a must read for those that are new to the US Virgin Islands and Sapphire Beach.

Building E has wonderful views of the sunrise; you will love waking up each morning to a beachtacular sunrise whether in bed, or on the patio, simply amazing!

This beach front one bedroom condo is on the ground floor at Sapphire Beach. The patio steps onto the white sandy beach (its a little rocky as you enter the water, so either bring water shoes or walk to the other side of the complex for snorkeling). Our ground floor building E beach front suite offers a king bed plus a full-size pullout sofa bed. The suite includes a bedroom area, sitting area with cable and TV, new kitchen with new appliances including convection-microwave oven, tile bathroom with tub, shower and double sinks. The private patio looks out to beautiful St. John. Beautiful! Listen to the gentle waves in the background as you dine on your patio or relax in your comfortable accommodations.

Wake up and look out your door and see the beautiful sunrise, white sandy beach and blue water. Enjoy the wonderful snorkeling just steps from your door. The location is great for honeymoons, romantic getaways, fun in the sun, and pure relaxation. Step right out to the quiet beach or take a very short walk to the pool or marina - slip rentals and day trips are available. Red Hook and the ferry to St. John are just minutes away. Red Hook and St. John have great dining opportunities and plenty of nightly dancing and fun...

Sapphire Beach is the best beach on St. Thomas - great snorkeling!!

Beachtacular! has a George Foreman grill. Sapphire Beach does not allow for charcoal or gas grills on the property.

Contact us for availability. We would love to have you!

About Bernard J Arroyo

We are from San Diego and love spending time in the US Virgin Islands/St Thomas.

Bernard J Arroyo purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bernard J Arroyo chose East End

We enjoyed being directly on the beach. We previously rented at Sapphire and loved it so much we decided to purchase a unit.

What makes this condo unique

On the beach. You will be surprised how close the beach is to the patio. Perfect while enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Bernard,

We've arrived and really love your beachfront condo, thanks for sharing it with us! I'm so appreciative of all the little things you have thought to keep here to make the stay comfortable in a place where things are not as easy to get and a lot more expensive. Thanks for the great info upfront and for the YouTube videos, too. Simple and useful! I have a long shot question for you (try not to roll your eyes on this one!). Is there any place around here where one might borrow or rent a yoga mat? It was the one thing that, due to weight restrictions on the flight, I reluctantly left behind and this condo is the perfect spot for practicing - I am regretting that I left it behind. Like I said, I know it's a long shot but so was the happenstance that the place we stayed earlier in the week had one in the closet (that was an absolute first!). So, just thought I'd ask but my primary purpose for writing was to say "thanks". We love it here!

Relaxing with scenic views! Very convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

I have always loved Sapphire, having been coming to the Island for 15 years now. I finallly think I've found the perfect condo! It's on the quiet side of Sapphire, just feet away from the water. The sound of the gentle waves and the breeze through the condo were two of the many things we loved about Beachtacular. We like to use St Thomas Boat Rental, and they leave right out of the marina just a few more steps away from this condo. Bernard has an extremely helpful packet that we very much appreciated!

Being so close to Redhook with its restaurants, stores, nightlife and of course, the ferry is perfect. The condo comes well stocked, which many others do not, and no need to bring snorkel gear! He has it available for guests to use. The king size bed, large shower, and double sinks make it perfect for a couple, especially when one of you is tall! There is a sofa bed, which we did not use, but would be perfect for two other people, if needed. Highly recommend if you'd like convenience and being steps from the water! It's a cozy condo that gives you the best bang for your buck!

It doesn't get any better than this!🌴☀️

  • 5 of 5

This condo is "as advertised!" We have been to St Thomas several times and you can't pick a better beach and location! This place has everything you need & the view can't be beat! We really enjoyed the main beach area, bar and cafe. Outstanding food, drinks & service! It is also very nice being so close to Red Hook, with Fish Tails being our favorite restaurant! Thank you Bernard for all the hospitality!

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time at Sapphire Beach in building E, our first time staying in Bernard's vacation home. This condo is exactly like the pictures inside and out, beautiful scenery and cozy inside. Being on ground level is a perfect choice, everything you need is just a few steps away. The condo was very clean and ready to move right in for your stay. The beach in front of building E is very quiet, low-key and relaxing. We are looking forward to booking our vacation for next year. Thank you Bernard for sharing your piece of paradise with us, we will definitely be back! Brett & Jody Walters

Fantastic vacation, Condo was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo! Just perfect. We had such a beautiful vacation. This unit is right on the beach, beautiful views! Bernard was very accommodating, provided a lot of great information about getting around, taxis, groceries and things to do in the area. The beach out front is a little rocky as stated but just a short walk over by building A and its the most beautiful beach with great snorkeling. We loved our vacation so much, would highly recommend this unit. Thank you Bernard!!!
