Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + 2 Convertible beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

If you’re searching for a spacious, luxurious Caribbean vacation condo that’s ON the beach (not just close to the beach or up the hill from the beach), this is what you’ve been looking for!

Totally remodeled from top to bottom in the summer of 2014, this 900 sq. ft., 2 level villa is located directly on Sapphire Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on St. Thomas, and is one of Sapphire Beach Resorts premier private rentals!

You will enjoy spectacular panoramic views from our two private balconies overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Ocean, St. John and the British Virgin Islands, where you are just steps away from the half mile long, white sandy beach and crystal clear aqua waters of Sapphire Beach. There is great snorkeling right on our own reef, where you can see an abundance of tropical fish, coral, sea turtles and stingray, and a two level pool is provided for guest use only.

Remodel includes:

• New porcelain floor tile – both levels

• New kitchen and bathroom cabinetry

• New quartz countertops – kitchen and both bathrooms

• New tiled kitchen backsplash

• New 4 door stainless steel refrigerator with ice maker and filtered water dispenser

• New stainless steel automatic dishwasher

• New 4 burner ceramic cooktop

• New convection microwave oven

• New coffee makers (one on each level)

• New garbage disposal

• New tiled walk-in showers both levels

• New plumbing fixtures and toilets

• New direct and indirect LED lighting

• New furniture

• New Murphy bed

• New bamboo curtains – both levels

• New flat screen TV’s – both levels

In addition, Building A underwent a complete renovation of the exterior in 2013.

Imagine sitting on one of your two private balconies enjoying your morning coffee or afternoon cocktails (It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!) in a lush tropical setting, listening to the soothing sound of the ocean right in front of your condo!

You enter to the main floor, which has its own large bathroom, full kitchen, dining table, and living room with a queen sofa sleeper, recliner, 46” flat screen TV and private balcony overlooking the beach and palm trees with amazing views of St. John and the British Virgin Islands. The quartz countertop kitchen is fully equipped with a full size refrigerator (with ice maker and filtered water), convection microwave, 4 burner ceramic cook top, dishwasher, garbage disposal, coffee maker, toaster, crock-pot, blender and plenty of cookware, dishes, utensils, stemware and silverware.

Stairs from the main level lead up to the spacious master suite. This upper level, with an 18 ft. cathedral ceiling, also has its own large bathroom with two sinks and shower, a new King Size bed, sitting area with sofa, a Murphy bed that folds down to a Queen Size pillow-top mattress, 43" flat screen TV and another private balcony with even more spectacular views.

63 channel cable TV is provided on both levels. Both levels have their own air conditioning with separate thermostats; but the ceiling fans and ocean breezes are often all you need!

This unit can comfortably sleep six people. It is perfect for a couple with children, but it also provides ample privacy for two couples or three adults.

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is located on the East End of the island, only half a mile from the nautical village of Red Hook and American Yacht Harbor, which has shopping, numerous casual and upscale restaurants and bars, boating and diving adventures and the ferries to St. John.

The Sapphire Beach Marina, located on property, offers sailing trips, power boat trips, fishing trips, parasailing and Jet-Ski rentals. Beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels and free Wi-Fi are all included with your rental.

The Dive In shop is located right on the beach. They rent kayaks, SUP Boards, life jackets and foam beach floats, and you can also purchase some basic beach sundries like sun block, lotions, sunglasses, etc.

The Sapphire Beach Bar, also located on the property, cooks up hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, tuna or mahi sandwiches and salads, along with a variety of beers wines and tropical drinks. You can eat at the bar, or they will deliver right to your beach chair! The VI Slice restaurant is a short walk up from the Marina, and offers gourmet pizza along with other daily specials.

The resort has 24 hour security with a gated entrance, cameras and uniformed personnel available at all times.

This luxurious condo is managed by Dionne Nelthropp who owns Hibiscus Homes Realty. Dionne grew up in St. Thomas and has been in the Real Estate industry for more than ten years. The owners consider this a tremendous advantage over other rentals you find on VRBO, as it is professionally managed by a local who absolutely loves these islands and will do everything possible to make sure you have the perfect vacation rental.

We use our own reliable housekeeping to assure the unit is extremely clean for your arrival. We provide fresh linens and extra towels for you. Mid-week cleanings are available upon request for an extra charge, as is stocking of groceries or other needs you may have.

Be sure and check our reviews to see what other are saying.

We would like to continue to help you plan your vacation even if you do not select this unit, as we have other units available. Please give us a call.

Why Property Manager chose East End

Sapphire Beach in St. Thomas has been our favorite Caribbean destination for many years thanks to the location, beautiful beach and views, and the laid back, friendly atmosphere. We were fortunate to purchase this property for our second home a few years an have made every effort to make it beautiful and comfortable for ourselves and our guests.

Isle Be Back – Elegantly Remodeled Two Level Villa on Sapphire Beach
average rating of 4.888889 based on 27 reviews

Isle Be Back on Sapphire Beach was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The condo and beach property were well cared for. The condo remodeling was very nice. Beach is close. Views are spectacular. Amenities were good. An issue with the wifi for the first couple of days, but the property manager Dionne was wonderful to work with, responsive and very helpful in resolving. Loved the little features like having a keypad lock on the door and not worry about who has the key; a foot brush at the door to brush off the sand; snorkel gear and coolers to use at the beaches. Very close to Red Hook, Lindquist Beach, Coki Beach and others. A car is highly recommended to get around. And I hope "Isle Be Back"!

Winfield, Il

Wonderful location, stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Isle be back condo was everything you described and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo. We have stayed very many VRBO locations, and this one exceeded our expectations. The condo is immaculate, updated and comfortable! The views are amazing! The book on the coffee table was very helpful. We ended up Visiting the restaurant VO Slice on more than one occasion and the food was delicious. We also enjoyed the location of the condo and it's proximity to Red Hook. People were exceptionally friendly who were also staying in this location, at night it got very quiet which we loved! If you are looking for partying or nightlife you could just drive to Red Hook five minutes away. Thank you for a very restful week!

The condo was amazing. Only one small issue with the air conditioner upstairs. Other than that the trip was perfect.

They property was more then accommodating. We took advantage of every opportunity, tons of activities on site and in town, all within a short cab ride. I am truly appreciative of the opportunity to stay in an amazing villa with fantastic beach employees. My children and i will be back thank you!

Our family of five had the best time staying at "Isle Be Back" for Christmas this year!! The condo was beautiful and the beach was amazing and right out our doorstep! We rented a car and drove all over St Thomas eating at some of the best restaurants and even took the car ferry over to St John one day to rent dinghys. Our boys were just thrilled and ready to come back! We had no complaints other than the AC was a tad warm when we got there on Christmas Eve and even though I told her it was ok and we'd be fine they had maintenance out THAT DAY to add freeon! I was really impressed with the quick customer service and pleasant folks who maintain this condo. It was spotless and had snorkeling gear etc you can borrow. Highly recommend this property - and I NEVER leave reviews because I always forget - however this was just an amazing spot and the people were great so I wanted to let others know how happy we were. We DEFINITELY are already planning when we can go back! ;)

Slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a lovely week at Isle Be Back and the name certainly sums it up. We can't wait to come back to this wonderful condo and bring friends next time! The condo has everything you could wish for, even a small coffee machine upstairs because why would you want to walk more than 10 feet to coffee when you're in paradise! :) it could easily sleep 3 couples or a family with children. It is beautifully remodeled and in an excellent location in building A. The views from the upstairs balcony are spectacular and being beach front doesn't get any better. Thanks Dionne and Isle Be Back!
