About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Feel the breeze and gaze at St. John from the porch of this newly renovated condo. A 15 step distance to the waters edge to enjoy a swim or snorkel in one of the most breathtaking coral reefs in St. Thomas. If you would like to go fishing or enjoy a boat ride around the islands, there is a marina right next to the condo. All kinds of kid friendly activities will keep the young ones amused while you enjoy a fruity drink next to the 2-tier pool that overlooks the ocean. Your waterfront suite comes fully equipped; custom kitchen with new appliances and cabinets; newly tiled bathroom with updated fixtures; flat screen televisions; new sliding glass doors and screens; and many other upgrades. Sapphire Beach resort and marina are situated on the eastern end of the island. Just minutes to the town Red Hook where you can find fine dining, shopping, a grocery store, sports bar, pizza, and live music. For the adventurous type there are many attractions including Blackbeard's Castle, sky tram, underwater submarine tour, and a hands-on aquarium. There are many boat excursions and ferries to the BVI and other islands for a day hike or other activities. So much to do and see or just feel the breeze and sun in this awesome island oasis.

Why lee passios chose St. Thomas

My brother and his family have been coming to Sapphire Beach for many years and convinced us to join him this year. I could barely contain myself when I saw the view and put my feet in the water(as angel fish swam around me). My 6 year old went snorkeling and saw sea turtles and sting rays in their natural habitat. My 12 year old met some new friends; they played volleyball and swam together joining in an immediate friendship. I knew I found paradise and a place to call my own.

What makes this condo unique

Great restaurants and shopping nearby. Local attractions including an aquarium with hands-on exhibits. Safe environment for families with children. Many weddings have been accommodated on the 'point' overlooking the coral reef.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In response to this 1 bad review after 3 years of renting, my belief is that this couple are miserable to begin with. They stayed 2 hours. They never gave Sapphire a chance, and experienced its TRUE beauty. When they arrived there were keys in the door and the cleaning lady was next store. If they had bothered to bring a copy of their contract which contains all the pertinent information, they would have know this. I never pretended to be the Ritz- Carlton. This is a quiet waterfront condo that has its own security staff. The water is pristine with a thriving reef in front. Sapphire is a very special place. I am not sure what these renters standards are?! I am down there every 4 to 6 months. I bring quality towels, linens, knives etc. Just read all my past reviews and you will see how awesome Sapphire really is. Sincerely, Lee the owner

Sapphire Beach Resorts

  • 5 of 5

We have been to STT almost 20 yrs., renting at Sapphire Beach Resort. Lee is the best host and answers our every need promptly. Could not ask for better. We love the ground floor unit with easy access to beach and pool.

As far as this area is concerned: best snorkeling on the island less than 100 yds away, very quiet beach at our door, lovely patio for sunning and a roof to help when the occasional sun shower creeps up. Snorkelers see rays swimming and jumping out of the water, many reef fish and turtles.

At the other side of the resort (within 400 yds) is a white sand beach with crystal clear water and gradual sandy bottom. A fresh water swimming pool is 200 yds away with great views.

Next door is a marina from which fishing charters, parasailing, sail boats or jet skis can be rented. Everything you can imagine to make a great vacation.

Dollar bus is short walk so there is really no need for a car.

Have already made plans to come back.

Great room, spectacular view. It is great to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean.

Owner's Response: There is nothing more soothing than falling asleep to the oceans sound. Sapphire is a special place in that you are not only waterfront but close enough to listen to the waves. It is one of the main reasons I bought the condo 6years ago. Look forward to your return. Sincerely, lee

Breathtaking view!

  • 4 of 5

The condo itself was very nice, clean and updated. The view from our room was spectacular! No obstruction of views of the several islands & water that we could see from the condo. The best on the island!! We loved the location of our condo too. Not only the views, but we spent a lot of time next door at the marina, looking for/at crabs, fish & iguanas. Also, it was a very convenient to walk over to parasail. Super fun! And we were also close to the laundry room which I like to do towards the end of our vacation to take home clean clothes. Being so close to the beach, we did some snorkeling there. We had a lot of fun feeding the fish. I was, however, very disappointed in the condition of the Sapphire Beach property. I was there 15 years ago and it was so lively and well kept. The two restaurants were closed and run down & the pool has seen better days. Fortunately, we had daily plans to visit other beaches and weren't focused on that. Beautiful condo and location was definitely worth staying there though. We would definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed the condo! The view from building E is exceptional as well as the warm breeze that blows off of St. John all day. There are many changes happening over the next year at Sapphire. The restaurants will reopen as the new owners renovate and get settled in. We have seen many changes at Sapphire in the past years. Each building has been completely re done and next is the actual property. I hope you will come back to see the changes. Sincerely, lee

Great spot with direct water access...

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful spot though beach lounging and swimming is better a short walk up the beach, for snorkeling...great spot. Close access to a pool/patio area was a plus. The unit itself was very well appointed and equipped...this was our 4th visit to Sapphire Beach, although hurricane season, the weather was great if not too our experience, best time to visit Dec-April. Was a nice touch to have an on-island contact/property manager who was very accomodating.

Owner's Response: thank you for the review. The snorkeling is amazing, and to be able to walk out the door and jump in is what makes Sapphire such a special place. I look forward to hosting you for a 5th visit. Sincerely, lee

Amazing view and condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect to be able to sit right at the beach and enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sunset. It is just the right size, has all the amenities one would need, and the owner Lee is so friendly and helpful and truly wants her guests happy.

We didn't rent a car and it's right next door to a marina where you can walk to catch a sunset cruise or excursion. A quick taxi ride takes you to lots of tours, restaurants and great beaches.

We will be returning for sure!

Owner's Response: There is nothing better than enjoying your coffee watching the sun come up over St. John. I am so happy I could accommodate you after all your flight cancellations (due to hurricane Matthew). I look forward to your return. Sincerely, lee
