About the property

Oceanfront spacious one bedroom condo

Come see the secret that we’ve been keeping to ourselves.

As soon as you walk in the front door you’ll find our condo opens up into a lovely living area, but the first thing you will notice is the beautiful sweeping ocean and down island views right out in front of you! Our condo is as close as you can get to waters edge – nothing between you and the gently rolling Caribbean surf. Let the sights, sounds, and breeze lull you into tranquility!

Our beautiful home sits on the quiet and less crowded beach and offers two floors with ample space for your family members to spread out. Both floors have brand new patios with full wall sliding doors that open up to airy balconies with awesome views of St. John and the British Virgin Islands.

On the main floor you’ll find a full kitchen, dining area, living room (with Queen-sized sleeper sofa), and full bathroom. Our kitchen and dining area provide you with everything thing you need to make a wonderful family meal, all the while enjoying the ocean right in front of you. For your ease, we stock our kitchen with all the utensils, cookware, and common staples such as coffee, sugar, creamer, spices, oil, vinegar, etc.

Upstairs provides a comfortable, relaxing master suite with beautiful view of the ocean from the second story balcony, a brand new TemperPedic King-sized bed, a sitting area that includes another Queen-sized sleeper sofa with brand new mattress, and another full sized bathroom.

You’ll find our condo is fully equipped with cable television on both floors, high-quality linens and towels (both bath and beach), hair dryers in both bathrooms, as well as beach chairs, snorkeling gear, and a cooler for your trips to the beach.

Sapphire Beach is one of the most gorgeous beaches on St. Thomas offering you some of the best snorkeling around. If you feel like something besides the ocean, we also have a beautiful fresh water bi-level pool that sits on the edge of the water. Just outside our door you’ll also find the Sapphire Marina, which conveniently offers numerous excursions and charters.

Our condo complex is a gated property with 24/7 security and is located a mile from Red Hook, which offers numerous restaurants and shops, as well as the ferry dock for trips to St. John and the BVI. If you don’t feel like leaving your chair there is the Sapphire Beach Bar that offers food and drinks, and will serve you right at your chair.

About Jeanne

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in St. Thomas and fell in love with this wonderful place. We came back several times through the years! Sapphire Beach is a magical place and to us it will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Jeanne purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jeanne chose East End

The views from our condo will blow you away - from the beautiful shades of blue water and expansive views of St. John and British Virgin Islands.

You can't get any closer to the water than our'll feel like you're on your own private yacht!

A place in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic, the accommodations were clean and wonderful. The owner was very pleasant to work with and easy to access if needed. The view from the 2 decks is absolutely breathtaking - you may think you died and went to heaven.

If you're looking for a place to unwind and slow down this is the place, you can't help but to completely relax!

Fantastic location and views!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time at this condo. We were only there 2 nights as we were headed to St. John but wished that we could have stayed longer here. Sapphire Beach is the best place to swim and snorkel on the island and its proximity to great restaurants and the ferry to St. John were ideal. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms and kitchen were great, views from the balcony spectacular and the A/C made it all very comfortable. Jeanne also gave me helpful info about the ferry too. We'll be back again!

Good Quality with an Excellent View

  • 5 of 5

This property was described perfectly and priced for our budget - and what a view!! We had (2) adult couples staying, the two floors made it convenient for both to have personal space and a bathroom. Bathroom and kitchen had been updated nicely. Photos are accurate. Only criticism was that we couldn't ever get the internet to work. The password was shown and the internet read as full bars, but wouldn't ever work. Would never have cared - we are in paradise an who needs a phone or internet - but was hoping to use it to get around as cellular can get expensive down here! Best part was having coffee on the balcony and being so close to the waves. There was a bar close enough to walk to, but not much else within walking distance - only beautiful ocean and pool! Found a grocery within a reasonable distance - you would definitely need a car!! The owner was awesome to talk to and super communicative!!

Owner's Response: The internet works but must not be moved or the signal can be lost. It worked fine both before and after their stay. Cellular is normal in St. Thomas as we are part of the national network.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for a quite low key beach stop this condo is for you! At first the kids were upset not to have the all inclusive experience that they are used to but slowly realized how nice it was to have peace and quite ! Red Hook is just a close taxi ride away and you can get whatever you want there. The condo itself is great , the master bedroom bed is to die for SO comfy , only bummer was having to go to the pier to wash and leaving property to eat other than that A DEFINATE MUST STAY!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We never advertised we had a washer and dryer for guest use. I explained when you asked before arrival about washers a few steps away in the Marina building. Sapphire has never been an all inclusive resort, we are a condo resort, hence no all inclusive experience. We also have the Sapphire Beach Grill open until sunset.

Nice size,views and good location for beach/snorkling

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice and seems to have been remodeled recently. We were two couples and it worked fine, even with one of the couples sleeping on the pull out bed downstairs. With two bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs everyone had enough privacy. If you are looking for a great beach/snorkeling location you cant go wrong for the price! This would be a good condo for a family of 4, parents in the master suit upstairs and kids in the comfortable pull out bed downstairs.

Great a spot to enjoy some time in St. Thomas

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this unit. It is perfect for us. Its clean, pleasantly furnished, comfortable....its a home away from home! There are decks off the master bedroom upstairs and off the living room / dinning / kitchen area. The breeze is heavenly. We never use the AC while we are there! It has everything you need. There is free wifi. You can cook if you like or eat out. Its only 1 mile to Red Hook where there are a lot of restaurants. Ferry over to St. John is also there. A perfect location. Beach is lovely as well. We highly recommend it.
