A bit small but good value for the price

  • 4 of 5

Great location really close to Red Hook and all the East end amenities. There are two pools in the village. A small one was close to our unit and was great for an afternoon dip. Great views from the balcony. The "redecoration" was a bit cluttered for my taste and the unit overall was a bit on the small side, but OK for one or two people. The unit was clean with solid appliances and pretty much everything you needed for a short stay. Considering the price, it was a very good value for East end. The beach at Sapphire Resort was OK. There was a lot of construction going on but not much else.

8 nights not enough!

  • 5 of 5

We used Gail and Gary's condo for a home base while we visited many possible wedding reception venues. It was very clean and cozy, the views from the rear patio were inspiring and cool because of the breezes, and it had almost everything we needed to make our stay feel just like being home (except having the views of course.) The bed and the pull out couch that our 6 year old daughter loved was comfortable. We didn't utilize the snorkeling equipment but we did get a chance to use the beach chairs at beautiful Linquist Beach just up the road, and the pool is very close to the unit. A trip to St. Thomas wouldn't be complete without going to Duffy's Love Shack and Island Time Pub. We highly recommend this condo. Thank you Gail and Gary for working with us as we plan our impending nuptials.

As Expected

  • 4 of 5

The Studio was well maintained and had plenty of room for 2. Our 2 week stay included a lot of not so great weather so our overall impression of St Thomas was you need sunshine to really enjoy your visit which obviously can't be predicted. Our one comment and it is not a criticism as we knew it ahead of time is that if you don't have a car the walk to the beach is down and then up 3 very steep inclines which could be a problem especially carrying all the beach gear. The 2 pools were easy to walk to although we really spent our time at the beach which was nice with plenty of shade, a plus if the sun is out.There were beach chairs and a cooler for our use which was great as once we went to the beach we stayed for the day, also snorkels,masks and fins.

We had no problems and Gail was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and tips to make our stay trouble free before we arrived.

Owner's Response: Good Morning Diane, Thank you for the good review..we strive to provide a clean and comfortable condo to enjoy your vacation, not to mention those outstanding views! We have had guests with and without cars and it's really a matter of personal preference. We also have had guests who enjoy the beautiful walk to and from the beach, as we do when we're there! I am so happy our conversations prior to your stay were helpful! Unfortunately, we have no control over the weather, but I will say what you experienced is rare , as we have been there every month and enjoyed beautiful sunshine...Warm Regards, Gail and Gary

Perfect Paradise Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a sun filled week in St Thomas 1/23/16 - 1/29/16. We had been to St Thomas before but this was the first time we stayed on the island instead of a cruise ship. We could not have picked a better location than this condo. Our entire vacation was threatened by an impending major snowstorm that forced us to begin our vacation 2 days early in San Juan. We appreciated that Gail followed up with us to make sure we made it to the condo without any problems. The unit had everything we needed and the wifi was a great bonus. We took in the great view from the balcony every morning while having breakfast. Nice beach & pools and the grounds were well maintained. Everyone we met was very friendly and security was not an issue. From the upper pool area we could see & hear the ferry boats going to St John. We went over to St John several evenings for drinks at The Beach Bar - which also has the best frozen coconut mojitos and fish tacos! Moe's Market in Red Hook is a great place to pick up some groceries. They have a deli, salad bar, fresh produce and baked goods and of course wine, beer, etc. We would definitely stay in this unit again if traveling to St Thomas. Thanks Gail & Gary for a your great hospitality and wonderful home away from home.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week in St Thomas. We could not have asked for a better place to stay than Gail & Gary's. Its roomy, has everything we needed and is within walking distance to Red Hook. Red Hook is where the ferry to St John is and also offers a lively variety of restaurants and bars, something for everyone. (just a 15 minute walk) We took the safari bus for a couple of bucks and its great, but we also rented a car for a few days to do what we wanted to do, when we wanted to do it.

Did I mention the view?? No?? well that is one of the best parts. From the moment we stepped out onto the balcony you can feel the stress of travel, work, whatever and you just say "Ahhhhhhh" Chillaxing is what we did. The Sapphire Beach is beautiful and a short walk from the condo. There are two pools kept clean, plenty of lounge chairs ... we did not find any "towel people" here. You know the ones, run down at 5am to put a towel to save chairs. Nope, no need at these pools. There is a restaurant/bar right below the condo where one of the pools is located. The food was good and so were the drinks.

Gail responds quickly to questions and checked in with us a couple of times to make sure we were having a good time and had everything we needed. You don't find that everywhere!

I highly recommend this condo, though I don't want to because I want to make sure its available when we decide to go again!

Thanks again for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank You so much for your wonderful review! When we first started coming here 7 years ago we knew there was something so special about this place, and we are so happy you both enjoyed your stay here. Our goal is always to provide a clean and relaxing condo for our guests to enjoy, and there are no words to describe the view! After 7 plus years, every time I walk in to our condo, I walk out onto the balcony and realize how blessed we are to enjoy this amazing view! We are close to so many wonderful restaurants and other beaches, although Sapphire does have some of the best snorkeling and views. Again, we thank you for your kinds words and are happy you enjoyed a wonderful vacation here!! Regards, Gary and Gailo

A week of beautiful weather

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. Easy communication with the owners prior to the trip. Clean accommodations and great location close to the safari stop ($1-2 each way) which we took during the day, we did walk to Red Hook a couple times but not the safest considering no sidewalks and curvy roadways. Highly recommend St. John’s which is a quick ferry ride from Red Hook. The only downfall that we could find is that the pool down at the point on the beach was unkept along with what must’ve been a bar and grill at one time, but considering there were 3 others up by the villas we weren't really disappointed too much.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for the excellent review. Just a note the pool at Sapphire Beach is not our pool. There has been lots of problems at the lower resort Sapphire Beach. Our 2 pools & restaurant at Sapphire Village are well maintained & the best on the island. Gary & Gail
