Our condominium is located directly on Sapphire Beach in building 'A' with the balcony overlooking the beautiful white sands and tranquil blue waters. The gentle breezes off the water are amazing.

We also have gorgeous multi-level cascading freshwater pool which is surrounded by the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Grab a book and relax while watching the tranquil blue waters lap up on the shore surrounding the sparkling clear pool. Or sit back and relax while watching the boats coming in and out of the marina.

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 Estate Smith Bay

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.

St Thomas Review- Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5

St. Thomas USVI has been a delightful island. Even with the recent hurricane, the people have a great sense of gratitude, hospitality and want tourists to know they are open for business! Our stay at this particular condo on Sapphire beach has been wonderful. All amenities are present from inside the condo to outside. The condo is well maintained, has amenities for cooking, spices, appliances. Thank you for the nice touch of wine bottle on arrival! Owner was very responsive and always in touch as needed. Thank you! There are taxis on the resort that are always present, so no need for a car. There is a beach bar that is open until 6pm and some live music at times. There are beach chairs available and the beach is never too crowded. We did an day of excursion with a person named David, who was an absolute treasure.....he was full of life and knowledge like about thehistory of the island. Highly recommend him! . Loved being here and hope to return.

Very nice unit, great location and great views.

  • 4 of 5

The complex is located on a very nice bay with great beach. Unit is also close to Red Hook for shopping and dinning. The unit itself is in great condition, with plenty of room for a small group. The complex common area is under construction and in need of updating. Overall nice experience during the visit.

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.
