Lcation Location Location
If you are looking for the perfect oceanfront location - look no further. This property is on the most beautiful beach on St. Thomas. Every time we explored other beaches, our whole family (teenagers included) would want to go back to "our" beach. It has beautiful water with a mosaic of color, the best snorkeling, sun AND shade - thanks to the grape trees, an AMAZING view along with plenty of beach chairs and no crowds! Even better is the fact that you can walk just a bit up the beach to a nice beach bar/restaurant with an amazing view. (You can go in your barefeet.) A little further up is the Marina which we all loved strolling to at night to check out the boats and it was super easy to walk over to jet ski, parasasil or take a day adventure. Also Red Hook ferry is VERY close and convenient so you can take a trip to other islands and we loved eating at Sudhi's which is also just up the beach and very casual.
It was great for our teen boys to be able to explore a bit on their own vs being confined to one house/property - they loved it!
The owners are great and attended to our every need before and during our trip. They answered a ton of questions and were SUPER accommodating.
The vibe here is friendly and chill - very relaxing - all of the other condo owners seemed nice and welcoming.
We mis it already!
Gorgeous location for our winter getaway
This condo was perfect for escaping winter! This condo is just as it says - ground floor100 feet from the beach. Paradise Beach is quiet with a great reef for amazing snorkeling just a short swim from shore. It was shallow enough that even my husband, who hasn't in the past enjoyed snorkeling, was comfortable enough to enjoy the large variety of fish and coral. We were pleased that there was someone in charge of the beach who kept it clean and quiet - no cruise people invading for the day. It's a just short drive to Red Hook for dinner and the ferry to St. John.
The condo itself was decorated in blues and whites, very beachy. The furniture was comfy and the kitchen was equipped for cooking, although all we did was breakfast and lunches, and those we had on the lanai enjoying the beach feel even there. The owners provided information about the area and were very responsive to our questions. It really was a wonderful place to "unthaw", relax and enjoy the warm, sunny days and the beach!
Thank you very much for your kind words. We agree Sapphire Beach is Paradise. We like to think of it as our little piece of paradisewe. We are happy to share our piece of paradise with our guests because we know how much it means to them when they are looking for a winter getaway.
My favorite experiences snorkeling along Sapphire beach's reef is seeing turtles and Eagle Rays. There is somthing special about floating along watching the turtles in their natural enviorment and occasionally seeing a Eagle Ray fly.
Convenient but needs TLC
Beautiful beach, good location, but property needs updating and TLC.
Breezy beach with beautiful views compensates for lackluster accommodations.
As vacationers at this beach condo complex for nearly 40 years we went back for its tranquil tropical setting, clear and calm turquoise waters, refreshing breezes, and verdant views of nearby St. John and the British VI. By that measure we got the expected - save the multiple noisy and lengthy heavy equipment visits to deliver and remove beachside construction size dumpsters filled with massive quantities of sea weed (over which no one obviusly had any control).
Unexpected however was the worn, outdated and less than clean condition of the unit - ceiling light fixtures with quantities of dead bugs collected inside, a tub of fetid water under kitchen sink due to inoperable, leaky garbage disposal on arrival, broken/missing vertical blinds, non-functioning & rusty nightstand reading lamp, broken sliding glass patio door handle, rusted Murphy bed mattress springs, accumulated dust and grit in bathroom medicine cabinets, unbearably noisy bathroom exhaust fan, lack of properly working ceiling light fixture in bedroom, poorly re-painted control panel on the vintage electric stove, the living/dining area quite cramped with mismatched furnishings, the late-night heavy footsteps and sounds of furniture being moved around in the unit above - a mention of which to management brought relief, for one night - and the unkempt and damaged parking area behind the unit, to name few. While aware before arriving that there was no dishwasher (not an issue since we took most meals out), that 'modern amenity' is probably overdue.
Having stayed at and otherwise seen a good number of other units in the complex, given these issues, this one by far ranks at the low end of our experience. We have enjoyed much, much better in the past, and would not rent this unit again.
We are very sorry that your vacation was not completely satisfying. We really wish that you had taken advantage of the contact information, phone numbers and email address, that we supplied in our welcoming package. We are very committed to making our guest as comfortable as possible. Had you made us aware of your concerns we would have address then at once. We feel confident that we could have made your stay more contorfable. We base our confident on our track record with our previous guests. We have 40 reviews on HomwAway 35 of them are 5 star reviews the other 5 reviews are 4 star teviews. When given the operentuy we must be doing something right.
Perfect size room - with everything we needed.
The beach was right outside the door. Did not make it to the pool, but it did look clean and inviting as well. Looking forward to staying here again!
Enjoyed the accommodations and access to beach and sapphire beach bar. Great location, easy to get around, and lots of options for food, drinks and beach/water activities. I could do without the roosters crowing early in morning and construction workers starting at 8:00 on roof.
