Good times in the Islands!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lise's condo mid January and as in the past, had a fantastic time. We had to postpone our week from Thanksgiving, but Lise was completely accomodating and the process went smoothly. We've reserved rooms thru VRBO previously and have always had excellent results. Lise's room is beautifully furnished and maintained. We felt like we were in the islands as soon as we got thru the door. The kitchen and stone showers are a pleasure to use, and I never get tired of the beautiful blue sky reflected views of " el Carribe " from both balconies ! The grounds have recovered well from the hurricanes and the Island has greened up nicely. Obviously there was damage but the Islands have always come back, and time heals all wounds. Sappihire Beach is a unique location on an island of many beautiful places. What it lacks in amenities ( you will have to leave the resort for most meals other than lunch ), but I will easily trade that for being litteraly a stones throw from the Carribean ! Snorkling is very good to the right of the beach, and the swimming pool is clean and very cool. My kids spent an equal amount of time in both and we never get bored when were down here. Again, we had nothing but good times in Lise's condo and can't wait to return!

Sapphire Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We found this property at Sapphire Beach after the hotel we originally booked for our wedding was damaged by the hurricanes that ripped through St. Thomas. You can imagine our hesitation not knowing what we were getting into, but we didn't want to change our location. Lise was the most communicative and supportive which calmed our nerves almost immediately. We had an amazing experience and got married right on the pier that is on the beach the property was on. Our views were gorgeous to where we would enjoy our coffee or wine right there on the patio and stare at the water. We made friends with some locals that would frequent the beach bar and one even became our witness and signed off on our marriage certificate! We definitely felt very welcomed. Everything was in great working order and we loved the two levels as it allowed us to get ready for our ceremony in different parts of the house. The one drawback for us, we didn't spend enough time at the beach!!! We recommend this to anyone wanting to visit St. Thomas. Relax on the patio(s), swim in the ocean, go to the beach bar and visit Red Hook!

A perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely perfect for an easy vacation! The kitchen is well-equipped and our family had no trouble cooking most meals at home - grocery stores are a quick drive into Red Hook. We put the snorkeling equipment to good use, and were happy to have it available. Plenty of blankets, pillows, coolers for picnics, beach chairs too. There is everything to recommend a stay at Sapphire Beach!

Photos are forrrrrrr real.... Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

Sapphire Beach Resort and this condo are the perfect base location for your St Thomas/St John vacation. The pictures of the unit are very accurate, not doctored at all. Staying here, you will be about a mile from Red Hook restaurants, Ferry to St John which has great beaches and restaurants, and an awesome beach at Sapphire right out your door step.

Condo amenities are all there. Electric Grill on deck, full functioning kitchen to prepare meals in house, lounge chairs for the beach, coolers, snorkels and fins. (Some restaurants to try: Duffys Love Shack, XO Bistro, Cup and Kettle-breakfast, Fish Tails, Banana Deck-St John, Gladys-Charlotte Amalie)

Lise is a great owner who is very attentive to your needs. We had a mild incident with the upstairs A/C unit after a power outage on the island. Once contacted, she immediately had a A/C tech out to resolve the issue and stayed in contact with us to make sure we were in the know on repairs.

The great outweighs the couple of things we would like to see improved at the condo complex. Would be great if the parking area was paved as it is gravel with ruts from use that will fill with water when it rains. Also the grill/lounge area by the pool was affected by a fire years ago and still needs repair so there is no place to get food or drink by the pool. There is a bar/grill by the beach that could use an aesthetic update. We did not eat there so can not comment on the food. You can wash/dry clothes at the Marina office area ($4/each to wash and dry). Would be nice if complex was NO SMOKING as some times on the deck we had to get up due to smoking from other units below and around us. Verizon phone service is sketchy on St Thomas. Sprint and AT&T work well.

Heard people go back and forth on renting a vehicle. My vote is go for it, rent a car. You will get use to driving on the left side of road quickly and to have that freedom of transportation is a plus. The hills and curves you will experience will give you memories of theme parks at times but believe you will handle fine.

Overall would recommend this place over and over again. Looking forward to booking this unit for future stays to St Thomas.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments. I'm glad you enjoyed our condo and had a great vacation. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests. Thank you for letting me know that people were smoking. It is against the law to smoke in public areas and condos in the Virgin Islands. You can not smoke within 20 feet of the building. I wish you had told me I would've called security. I have let our COA manager know that this is going on. Our COA is on the last phase of renovations to our condo complex, the parking lot is included in these renovations and will be the last to be done. We also have potential investors looking to open up a restaurant at the pool. I look forward to your return in the future!

A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful and the views absolutely breathtaking. We felt right at home and especially enjoyed being able to just walk to the beach right in front. Even though we went out sightseeing to other areas, we spent our last day just relaxing right at "home" lounging at Sapphire Beach, snorkeling right out front and swimming in the pool. The condominium has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation, including snorkeling gear, local guide info and good beach novels. There is also an outdoor beach bar just down the beach.

Lise was exceptionally responsive to any questions or concerns, no matter how small. We would highly recommend Lise and her condominium.

A few activities we enjoyed: ferry to St John (we had a rental car and took the car ferry for ease of getting around), snorkeling at Sapphire and Magen's Bay, ziplining, day trip to Virgin Gorda, carnival night (Wednesdays) at Iggy's Beach Bar. Iggy's has a dinner buffet, but you can go to enjoy the Wednesday entertainment (fire dancer, stilt walker, fun band, limbo) for free. Iggy's is right on the beach about 20 minutes from the condo.

If you're looking for an inexpensive place for lunch or dinner, we recommend Tap & Still (about 5 minutes from the condo). Lots of locals and best prices we found anywhere for burgers, fries, etc. Great casual atmosphere.

You can't go wrong if you book this condo with Lise. Thank you Lise for a great vacation for our family!

This place was AMAZING! The condo was super clean, had everything you needed, comfortable bed, and the most GOURGEOUS view! Location was Perfect. Not far from airport, close to restaurants and stores. Sapphire beach has the best view and the best snorkling on St. Thomas without a doubt. We have been to St. Thomas before but did not stay at the beach. So happy we got a place at the beach this time, to be able to just walk straight to beach when we woke up, and take a walk there in the evening before going to bed was such a joy. We ate every meal outside on the balcony listening to the waves. You could not ask for anything more. The owner of the condo was beyond helpful and kind. I Highly recommend this place to anybody, you will not find a better place.
