My husband and I booked the end of June thru the first week of July for our anniversary; we loved the condo. The condo was recently remodeled and everything new and very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was great and stocked with pots & pans for cooking. There is a grocery store 5minutes away in Redhook; we took Safari there and taxi back.
The location of the condo was great, short walk to pool, beach, and Slice restaurant; very good food. We didn’t rent a car and rode Safari as much as possible $1-$2 per person depending on how far you go. Safari travels a one direction loop on the island and the stop is at the top of the resort & travels toward Redhook. We took a taxi from/to airport.
We took a ferry to Water Island and went to the beach and also a ferry to St John; short hike from Cruz Bay to Honeymoon Beach on St. John; ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL BEACH and WATER!!! Very beautiful beaches on St. John.
Sapphire Village was well kept and had laundry facilities on site. Sapphire Beach was beautiful too; would recommend water shoes, a bit rocky upon initial entrance into water. The only negative would be the WiFi password wasn’t included in our email and we had no WiFi in the condo; no real negative for us since we enjoyed stepping away from all the phone distractions and being present with each other.
Overall we had a wonderful trip, would stay at this condo again if we returned to St. Thomas.
Thank you so much for your fantastic and most informative review. I’m so sorry for the miscommunication. Hi speed free WiFi is provided in all of our units. The modem is located on the dresser and the code is located under the modem.
Very clean and renovated
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The condo was extremely clean and you could tell it had been recently renovated. The owner provides everything you need from beach towels to beach chairs. We had no problem finding the condo since we have visited ST multiple times. Close to the beach and there is a pizza place on site.
Now's for the cons...
The bed was very hard and uncomfortable for our liking. And there is a view but we would have preferred to have a better one.
With all that said the price is great for this condo given that majority are not near as clear and taken care of. If you're looking for a place for just the two of you and dont want to break the bank this is it.
So sorry we were only able to receive 3 stars in spite of your mostly quite positive review. Regarding the water view, we have had had three other customers this year write reviews claiming that they were quite happy with the direct water views. With regard to the bed situation, I’m beginning to realize that when it comes to mattress preferences, everyone has their own particular preference. Two other guests this year wrote very favorable reviews on how comfortable the bed was. The unit has a top of the line Stearns & Foster mattress that was just bought this past December 2018. We are considering buying an extra additional cushioning pad to have it available for those customers that are apparently used to a very soft type mattress.
Great view and wonderful condo
Great condo. My husband and I had a wonderful time. The condo had everything we needed to cook and make our own drinks. The view was gorgeous we had breakfast and dinner out on the balcony every morning and evening. The bed was a little hard for us but that is personal preference. Definitely could of used some black out curtains with the sun rising early it was harder to sleep in. There were some renovations going on in some other condos and the workers did nit adhere to the quiet time rule. They would start moving things around 6am. Definitely would rent the condo again.
Thank you for your recent review.
We will be adding an additional layer of blackout material to the curtain to further darken the room as needed.
We installed brand new modern curtains last December with what were supposed to be room darkening linen curtains. They are apparently not blocking out enough light.
Regarding, bed preference, just a few months ago another guest indicated to me that the bed in the unit was too soft. So it unfortunately appears that when it comes to a preferred mattress type, it’s all a matter of personal preference. I also do not like mattresses that are too firm. and just this past December replaced the previous mattress with a top quality Stearns and Foster mattress .
Wish you would have contacted me regarding any quiet hours construction noise. The Sapphire management is very strict about enforcing a no noise policy to prevent any after hours unit renovation noises. Thankfully, the great majority of the post hurricane Sapphire renovations are behind us.
Thanks again and best regards,
Exactly what I needed!
What a great view!! I couldn't ask for a better view~ Nice to sit on the balcony and just relax. What a great condo. Sapphire Village was a great place to stay, we had everything we needed to cook a few meals. The condo had all of the essentials - very comfortable, clean big enough to spend time in if you have too much fun in the sun! The pool is just a few steps out the door. Red Hook is just one stop away on the Safari bus - for $1, $2 to get to Charlotte Amalie. It is so easy to go to town to pick up whatever you need or if you want to eat, but I suggest Slice that in on property~ Sean the owner/chef is AMAZING! Everything on the menu is fantastic- great food, great people. I found everyone at Sapphire to be so friendly and helpful - such a great place to visit, I will come back and stay at Sapphire Village again. The only thing I will tell you - bring good walking shoes - there are lots of hills, you will get a workout, but the views are worth it. The beach is beautiful, great location. Thanks so much for a great vacation!
Thank you so much for your most thorough review.
We enjoyed having you visit our beautiful Virgin Islands
and look forward to your return.
Perfect Place for Vacation
This studio has a balcony with a beautiful view of water. It's higher up so we kept the sliding door open with the screened closed and the breezes kept the place comfortable. We only had to turn on the air conditioner three of the nights of our stay. The kitchen was well stocked with everything thing we needed including a coffee pot and blender (we didn't use the blender but it's still available). The queen size bed was very comfortable and perfectly positioned to wake up to the view. There is a nice sized TV with cable included which we enjoyed after long relaxing days on the beach and a day of rain. The beach is down the hill which is a steep three to five minute walk, sometime's we drove the car down. The beach is beautiful. There is a cafe that serves light breakfast options and great coffee and also a beach bar serves food and drinks and has wonderful live music on certain days of the weeks. There is also a restaurant on the premises but the food was hit or miss for us. The location is perfect as it was only a five to ten minute drive to Red Hook, which has great food and drink options and about twenty minutes to Charlotte Amalie and Magens Bay.
We felt very safe here as they have security guards and it's a gated community.
The owner was very helpful and was easily accessible. We would definitely recommend this beautiful condo and stay here again.
Thank you for your very complete review of our unit.
It was a real pleasure having you all stay with us.
Please come back soon.
Warmest personal regards,
Wonderful studio in a great location
The condo was perfect for our 6 day stay. Comfortable bed and couch, clean, and AC kept the place cool at night. Kitchen had all of the basics that we needed to have a few meals in. Lourdes has beach towels, chairs, and a cooler that we used for beach days. Red Hook is a 5 minute taxi ride. The taxi stand on the property made it very easy to get around the island for a couple of first-timers! The beach bar and Slice were great options to have nearby for a drink or meal. Overall, this place was perfect for our trip!
We are glad you all had a great time and that the unit was to your liking.
Thank you for visiting our beautiful US Virgin Islands.
