Enjoyed ocean and sand views from the kitchen while sitting at table. Really nice.
The kitchen could use some more pans. All in all a great visit and will return to Sapphire.
We had a great experience. I was traveling with my husband and teenage daughter and her friend. We had plenty of space with privacy for all. The condo is steps from the beach and the snorkeling is great. Also loved that we were connected to the Marina and able to take a charter sail from there. I would highly recommend for families.
The resort is somewhat dated and the pool needs work, but we had a great experience nonetheless, and could easily overlook these things.
Location, location, location! This townhouse was exactly as advertised. Sapphire Beach is either the best or 2nd best beach on the island for families (also enjoyed koki beach). My family of 4 greatly enjoyed our 2 week visit. My in laws came for a few days and their was plenty of room for everybody. My one email to Gregg was returned within minutes. Having a kitchen was great. We were able to enjoy sapphire beach and go up to the room for lunch. Security was constantly walking around so we found the resort to be very safe. Scott on the beach was a very friendly guy who made sure our chairs were out every morning.
A few things I would recommend: visit St John for at least a day. Wonderful place and the ferry only took 20 minutes or so from Red Hook
Rent a car: Gregg had suggested I rent one and I didn't. I wish I would've listened to him as taxi cabs cost a small fortune on this island.
Moe's shopping mart for meat: priced like home and always fresh meats. I would however bring as much dry stuff to eat as you can pack. Besides meat groceries are very expensive.
I would highly recommend staying here. Thank you Gregg and Aimee for a wonderful stay. We might just be back next year!
Ok first the good actually very good: I think this unit is in the best possible location on the island down to the very building its in. IMO Sapphire beach is the best beach on the island I visited. While Magens is more well known, it gets crowded and I think the water on Sapphire is more turquoise. In addition because there is coral right off the shore, you have tropical fish right there near shore you can snorkel and see. You don't need a boat, just put your mask on, walk in the water, and you are good. Right there we saw dogfish sharks, beautiful fish, small stingrays, other people saw turtles etc. The A building this unit is in is the best one as its right on the center of the beach near the refreshment stand where you can get great drinks and some chips etc.
Red hook is a fantastic location itself as you are right there by the ferry to explore other islands, and it has some great restaurants and shops in addition. There are always cabs in the parking lot for convenience if you don't rent a car.
Great location, great beach, great building
Now the not so good: The unit itself needs renovation badly. Other than the new flat screen TV's on both floors, it all seems very old. The floors are stained, kitchen seems ancient, and I was concerned about the air conditioning vents as they were starting to look black. The filters need changing badly and I would check for air quality. Water pressure in toilets and showers is great though. Upstairs cedar cathedral ceiling is very nice. Outside deck furniture needs to be changed as it is discolored and I was concerned about mold
Overall I think the pros outweighed the cons with this unit and considering the price is fair for an on the beach condo, would definitely recommend.
We had no problems with our 4 day stay, It had all the necessities for our visit.
I would suggest that more bath towels be furnished since there is no laundry available to launder dirty ones.
The sleeper sofa is not designed for a comfortable sleep, the thin mattress does not keep one from feeling the wire springs.
The Sapphire Beach Resort has not spent much on renovations, Freshening up the whole complex is over due,
