About Sheila

I lived in St. Thomas for two years 35 years ago. I am an avid traveller but didn't make it back to the Virgin Islands until 10 years ago. Having been around the world, I appreciated the beauty of St. Thomas much more. The view from my balcony is more beautiful than anywhere I have been. I now live here year round and have never tired of the views or the wonderful weather.

Sheila purchased this condo in 2007

Why Sheila chose St. Thomas

Sapphire Beach is one of the best beaches on St. Thomas and in the world. The views are beyond compare. The snorkeling is great.

What makes this condo unique

This is a great place to enjoy the beautiful swimming beach and great snorkeling right outside your door. It is conveniently located just 3 minutes from Red Hook with great restaurants, shopping and the ferry to St. John and the British Virgin Islands.

What a find!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from Sheila and Jim's villa. I have been to St. Thomas many, many times but this has to be the best trip ever. Loved the location. It's right on the beach and next to the pool. The pictures are right on and every imaginable amenity is there. While deciding on our dates, the owners were very helpful answering questions and giving us ideas for dining and activities. Can't wait to return. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Family Vacation in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and let me tell ya... Amazing condo!!! Updated everything, amazing breezes, breathtaking views and right on the beach!!! Sheila & Jim were the most amazing hosts. A huge plus is that they live on the property year round. Beach towels were provided as well as plentiful bath towels. All the cookware & utensils you need were also provided. AC was super. There is a laundry facility onsite. Wifi was excellent, TV options were good...but we didn't come here to watch tv ;)

Waking up to the turquoise waters every morning was unreal... Red Hook is a few minutes away - Fill up the fridge & pantry with a few essentials and you are gold.

We stayed with our two kids (5 & 8). They enjoyed the clean pool as much as the ocean. We were able to snorkel right off the beach, it was beautiful. On the left side, past the grassy area you will find a beautiful live coral reef. We saw a multitude of fish, they will eat right out of your hands :) We visited Coki beach, it was beautiful, but honestly, I could have stayed at Sapphire all week - it was gorgeous!

We took a charter boat out to BVI to experience the baths. 2 hours ride - a bit bumpy but worth the trip! There is a new botanic garden close to Mountain Top - just opened 6 months ago - go! It's phenomenal & very lush.

We highly recommend staying in this unit - or the one next door to this one - same owners (or both! The balconies open to each other if you rent both - great idea for double family vacation!)

Sheila & Jim, thank you for an amazing time! We will be back for sure!!!

Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Wow. What a perfect place for a honeymoon. Quiet and peaceful with an incredible view of the ocean and St. John. The condo was perfect for us. We enjoyed sitting on the veranda in the morning with our coffee watching the parasailing and other boats go by. We walked just down the beach to go snorkeling...it truly was like being in an aquarium. You don't have to go too far out to find beautiful coral and colorful fish. The beach was very clean and we had chairs brought to spot of choice. It was so relaxing and tranquil. At night we sat on the veranda and watched the lights of St. John twinkling in the distance. It was hard to leave that great place.

Sheila was great on sending emails about places to go and things to do. She and Jim were very accommodating.

I would highly recommend staying at Sheila's condo when traveling to this part of the world.

Thank you Sheila and Jim.

Wintering in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Val and I did not want to do another winter in NY and what better place for us but Sapphire Beach, St Thomas. This condo that we rented is in D building which is on the pool side of the beach away from where all the cruise people are brought. Beautiful views of St. John and the many islands that surround the area. Three months is a long time to stay at a vacation spot but Sheila & Jim live there and were always available should a problem arise. Many people have asked us what we did for three months and believe me the time went really fast. The island has many beaches to check out as well as all the beaches on St John. The ferry is less than a mile away. However as for me there is no better beach for snorkeling or the views than Sapphire! Go into Redhook which is less than a mile away for lunch, happy hour, dinner or live entertainment at night. No need to go further. Some places you want to check out are Tap & Still, Molly Malones, XO, Pesce and Latitudes. If all that is not enough you are next to a marina that offers many boat excursions. Oh and what else is there to do, well we checked out the Island for real estate and we are purchasing a condo right there on Sapphire for future winters! Thanks Sheila and Jim for sharing your condo and your beach with us. We look forward to being neighbors.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 16 who rented 5 condos at Sapphire Beach Resort. We rented both of Sheila's condos that are next to each other. It was so nice to open up the patio between the two to make a large area that many nights our full group would hang out.

The condos were perfect and had everything that we needed for our stay. To wake up to the view each morning was heavenly and the beach was great.

We ate at Fish Tails, Caribbean Fish Market, Sunset Grille and Oceana and all were very good.

Sheila answered tons of my questions in a timely manner and gave me great information that I used throughout our trip. She really does care that you have a good time on vacation.

Thanks Sheila, and I hope we can come back soon!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

The view was incredible from the balcony! And that would have been enough to get the 5 stars, you are 20 ft from the ocean, you can hear the surf at night. Sunrise is directly in front of you and rises over St. John.

The condo is clean, and nicely decorated. The king bed, fantastic. There are wooden room dividers that you can pull closed for privacy, or move out of the way for an ocean view. Everything was well maintained and new. Nice stone tile in the bathroom, well ventilated and no bad island smells.

We felt so comfortable here. Just loved it!

Sheila sent us a long email with information on where to eat and places to visit. We went to fish tails and Molly Maloney. Although we were going to go to Coki beach, we ended up just staying at Saphire beach for the 2 days we were here. It is beautiful, there were free chairs and snorkeling equipment, places to sit in the shade on the waters edge, great snorkeling and a nice pool.there is a restaurant by the pool up the hill from the marina, (not far). That had the best fish and chips! The fish was locally caught and so delicious. You have to try it.

I will definitely return. Thanks for creating a great place in paradise.
