About Kathie Jankowski

We have been coming to Sapphire Beach for over 10 years. The clear blue water, powder white sand, the gorgeous pool all make up our idea of Paradise. Its not over-crowded, the people are the friendliest we've ever met and every time we come, we say.....we wish we could stay here forever!

When the opportunity arose that we were able to actually buy one of these beautiful condos we jumped! Now we come a few times a year and thoroughly enjoy every moment we are here. We are happy that we can share our place with you and I know you will love it as much as we do.

Kathie Jankowski purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kathie Jankowski chose St. Thomas

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina has the best oceanfront condominiums on the island. We are the only community that is located directly on the beach. All others are at best a 'short walk'.

Granted, we aren't here simply for the accommodations, we are here for the beach, the sun, the sand, the island. Here you will experience this beautiful paradise up close and with your toes in the sand. You can't get any closer to the water than here at Sapphire Beach Resort.

What makes this condo unique

Offered on the beach:

Arrange for a professional massage

Snorkeling right off the beach.

Yoga classes offered a few times a week.

Fresh water pool for registered guests and owners only!

On site, beachfront Dive In store. Renting water equipment and toys.

No fighting or reserving beach chairs. Each guest will have their own lounge chair.

The new Sapphire Beach Bar opened July 2016. Come sit at the bar or the wait staff will come to you on the beach. Get those drinks and food delivered right to you.

Beautiful condo, beach and weather!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, plenty of towels and had each toys/beach bag available for use. We had easy access to the ocean even though we were on the 2nd floor. Our building was right next to a cute bar/restaurant. The vanilla killer was delicious at the bar and I would highly recommend it. Beach chairs were available from the attendant and he placed them anywhere we wanted. I would rent this condo again if we return to St. Thomas.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo and made use of all the toys and necessities during your beach vacation. Having the beach bar on property is a wonderful convenience and since they are not open late into the evening we reap all the benefits without having any "bar noise" to deal with! Can't wait to have you back again! Thanks so much! Kathie

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you loved your stay! We absolutely love sharing this piece of paradise! My apologies regarding the towel shortage. It was an error on our part not leaving two sets of towels for each of you upon your arrival. That's standard for us and we dropped the ball! Once it was brought to our attention though we did bring out the additional towels right away. It was our pleasure having you stay and we sincerely hope to have you back soon! We promise there will be no towel shortage!!! Thanks again! Kathie

Stay at Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5

The stay was great! We used the taxi service recommended to us by the owner (Jimmy) and he was great - he arranged taxi pickup from the airport and drop off. The condo was clean and right on the beach, with access to taxis right outside the door. Communication to the owner was easy and my questions were responded to quickly. The beach was very nice, and not a "ton" of people were there on a day to day basis. The pool bar was under renovation so we were on the actual beach most of the stay. Nice location and away from the loudness of town but close enough where if we wanted to go to Red Hook or into town it was a short cab ride away! Would definitely recommend this place and stay here again. One downside was the table on the porch is low, so in the morning we didn't get a great view of the ocean with the wood from the patio in our line of vision.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. JImmy with Marley Taxi Services does provide outstanding service. I'm glad you were happy with him. I am on the lookout for a high top table and chairs for the patio. We hate to miss even a sliver of that gorgeous view! Hope to see you back again soon. Kathie

Perfect. Take advantage of my obsessive compulsion for research and book this place.

  • 5 of 5

Kathie was quick to respond to any questions and everything about the listing was accurate. Clean, comfortable, air-conditioned, well-stocked kitchen supplies. Two sets of snorkeling gear in the closet. We walked in the room, looked out to the beach, and couldn't believe that places like this exist in the real world.

This room is on the second floor, in building A (of five buildings). Definitely the best end of the beach - the other end, toward the marina, is rockier and has more coral in the water, which means hanging out on the beach/in the water is not as easy and carefree.

I purposely booked the second-floor room and am happy I did. We were here the last week of October 2016 and the beach was practically empty. Check the cruise ship schedules to see how many extra people will be in St. Thomas because they bus passengers to this beach. The day we left there were almost 12,000 passengers in port, but still there were maybe only 50 or so people on the beach. The rest of the week there were 700 - 2,800 passengers in port each day (except my birthday, when there were no ships in port, so we spent that day on the beach), and never more than 25 or so people on the beach, and only for a couple hours at a time in the late morning.

There's a pool on the other end of the complex, but we didn't use it. Not sure why you would when the beautiful beach, with buoyant, clear turquoise water as warm or warmer than the pool, is right outside your door.

Plenty of easy parking near the room. This place is about a 2-minute drive from Red Hook, where the ferry to St. John is (you want to go there), as well as several places to eat. Shop for groceries at Moe's, avoid The Food Center.

I would have loved to have been able to walk to Red Hook, but it's too dangerous: no shoulders and a winding road (and so, so humid). Saw a couple walking along the side of the road, heard sirens a few minutes later. Don't know what happened, but the medics were talking to the visibly upset woman, there was an ambulance and an empty stretcher, but no sign of the man.

Get a Bushwacker from the beach bar next door, then drink it while you're bobbing in the ocean mere feet from your room. Heaven. I'm searching for that particular recipe (the best of a few Bushwackers I had on St. Thomas, and there are lots of different recipes--this one had chocolate syrup swirled on the sides of the glass) and would love it if anyone could pass it along.

Highly recommend and hope to go back

Great place to to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful condo for a week. Like the other reviewers have stated, this condo is very comfortable, clean, well appointed, and in a great location. The pride in ownership is also very apparent.

We were very pleased to book a day charter and be able to walk, just a few minutes, from the condo to the Marina for our day out on the water. We spent a lot of time in Redhook which was an easy 5 minute taxi ride.

Thank you Kathie for letting us enjoy your home and for that great bottle of wine and fresh flowers that created us after a long, long day of travel!

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is located on the east end of the island next to Red Hook. It is the perfect place for any type of vacation – from adventurous, to fun in the sun, to relaxing by the pool. You don't have to leave Sapphire Beach Resort, everything you need for a memorable vacation is right on-site.

Join a game of beach volleyball then cool off by diving into the ocean or into the sparkling multi-level freshwater pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea.

Sapphire Beach Resort is located in a lovely landscaped tropical garden atmosphere among palms, sea grape and banana trees. You can snorkel right off the shores of Sapphire Beach, sail, windsurf, parasail or jet ski. The marina is only steps away from your porch and offers boats for rent, or arrange for a planned excursion to adjacent islands including St. John and the British Virgin Islands. Deep sea fishing and the best scuba diving is also available on St. Thomas. For golfers, you can't beat the nearby prestigious 18 hole Mahogany Run Golf Course.

You may choose to rent a vehicle thru one of the airport car rental locations. If you would rather leave the driving to someone else, taxi cabs are readily available anywhere on the island as well as the open air safari cabs that only charge $1 per person no matter where you're island adventures take you!

The picturesque, small yachting and boating village of Red Hook is located one-half mile away. You can reach it with a leisurely walk or use one of the air-conditioned cabs always available to take you to any of the nearby attractions. Red Hook has great restaurants, nightlife (Duffy's Love Shack is an island favorite) , gift stores, and a ferry that will take you to the nearby island of Saint John.

For those that like to explore, St. Thomas offers a wide variety of spectacular sights to see and activities to enjoy, including Coral World, air conditioned theaters and gaming casinos, historic buildings, boat tours, a sky ride, zip-line, and ecotours to name just a few. Of course, there is plenty of shopping and amazing restaurants for you to try too. Or, you can just sit, relax and enjoy the gorgeous beauty of the many public beaches tucked away in the bays of St Thomas.
