About Mary Logue

My husband and I fell in love with the ocean when we moved from Minnesota to Miami upon graduating from University. We now enjoy our life in North Carolina between the mountains and the beach. We first vacationed as a family in St. Thomas at the suggestion of our son, Eric, who is certified in deep sea diving, in the spring of 1999. It was so incredibly beautiful and enjoyable that we purchased a villa at the lovely Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina. I have since retired from teaching art and my husband has retired to Professor Emeritus status at Duke Medical Center here in Durham, NC. Eric now owns Logue Healthcare Consulting Company and is living in Atlanta, GA, enjoying direct flights to STT. Our other son, Sean, a manager of software engineering at IBM in NC, has joined in this wonderful experience. We all make regular trips to Sapphire Beach together and with friends. We like to celebrate our anniversary there and watch the fireworks being set off at St. John on New Year's Eve from our balcony. It remains the best get-away ever!

Mary Logue purchased this condo in 1999

Why Mary Logue chose St. Thomas

St.Thomas is that rare place that we enjoy returning to again and again without ever running out of interesting and enjoyable things to do and see. Sapphire Beach is conveniently located for access to shopping, restaurants and other Islands. We have explored St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Tortola, Virgin Gorda plus the caves of Norman Island and love all of the Virgin Islands. We always are happy to return to the incredibly beautiful Sapphire Beach. It's a wonderful place to begin and end each day.

What makes this condo unique

We love our top floor condo in E building for its spectacular view, ocean breezes, and quiet, calming environment. This spacious, well-designed, two-story condo affords us flexibility and comfort. One can sleep or work upstairs while another watches TV or enjoys an early morning cup of coffee downstairs. There is no one else above or below the bedroom and no one else looking down on our balconies or looking in from the beach. Building E is at the quiet end of the beach and is convenient to the marina, laundry facility, pool, coral reef, and restaurant.

Nice one bedroom condo on the beach with great views of the islands.

  • 4 of 5

The condo has an excellent location on the island and is right on the beach. You can snorkel from Sapphire beach and enjoy all the fantastic scenery the islands have to offer. Red hook is very close, making any needed amenities easy to find.

Mary was very helpful and accessible. We will be back! We truly enjoyed visiting St Thomas.

  • 4 of 5

Walk out of condo complex and you are at the beach, great snorkeling out the front door, safe environment for teens, pool was nice, some construction on other buildings but didn't cause any distraction. Condo was clean and roomy and nicely decorated. WiFi, Netflix and Xboxes in condo. Beach towels and snorkeling equipment there also. It was a wonderful place!

Beautiful Location - Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sapphire Beach in Mary’s condo has been voted our absolute favorite vacation! My husband and I traveled with my college aged son and his friend and we loved it here. The beach and the snorkeling are wonderful and the easy access to the marina for some excursions was perfect. The condo area is quiet and peaceful with the most beautiful views.

Even with two young men sharing the downstairs, the space was great. My son slept on the air bed and his friend slept on the pull-out couch which was as comfortable as any bed with the added mattress topper that Mary provides. Each evening we would go upstairs to our own balcony view and let the boys do their own thing downstairs and it was just a perfect arrangement!

We cooked breakfast most days at the condo. The kitchen has everything you need. We also used the outdoor grill and loved the lack of pressure from figuring out where to eat. Definitely take advantage of the Fresh Foods VI delivery service and stock your refrigerator and kitchen before you arrive. Kathleen was great to work with them on the delivery and after a day of travel, we checked in and hit the beach.

All of Mary’s recommendations are so helpful. We visited her recommended beaches and several restaurants. We loved Fish Tails and XO Bistro and on our day trip to St. John we ate at Sun Dog Café in Mongoose Junction and it was fabulous! Tried the grill at Sapphire beach for a lunch and a breakfast and it was good food and very convenient to walk up the beach and get take out.

Traveling with two young men meant lots of excursions. We zip lined at Tree Limin Extreme and this was a great, well run zip lining experience especially for first timers. We charted a boat with Palm Tree Charters and spent a day of snorkeling in the British VI around Norman Island. Hands down the best place to snorkel is the Virgin Islands. We also parasailed and both of these excursions picked us up steps out our door at the Sapphire dock. Blue Reef Water Sports has closed. We found Parasail Virgin Islands in the Sapphire Marina and Mike and Matt gave us a great trip….probably my favorite excursion. We also did a kayaking excursion with VI Eco tours. Mary is the perfect owner to work with for a great trip! She will answer your questions immediately and take care of your every need. Used the snorkel gear everywhere we went. Glad we rented a Jeep. We will come back St. Thomas and Mary’s condo….beats Costa Rica and Hawaii hands down! Thank you Mary!

Owner's Response: This guest has a generosity of spirit that is demonstrated here. She took time to share her family's choices for activities and restaurants that they enjoyed to help others enjoy their vacations in St.Thomas. They appreciated our efforts to provide a well furnished condo and we appreciated them. Mary and Pat

A great week!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great. It was well stocked and clean, we really appreciate the daily towel service, beach towels and snorkel gear. Snorkeling at Sapphire was top notch, we saw squid and a barracuda. The view was outstanding. Thanks Mary for a great week.

BEAUTIFUL WITH AMAZING SEA VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

This was our third consecutive stay at Cheeseburger in Paradise and one of our best stays on St Thomas. We arrived to find remodeled bathrooms, new furniture throughout the condo as well as new dinnerware, curtains and lighting. There was also a bottle of Cruzan Rum and Mixed Berry Juice in the fridge (very nice).

Mary pays attention to every detail, from providing two umbrellas should you need them for an island rain shower; magnifying mirror in the bathroom; dish detergent; paper towels; candles for ambiance; starter soap, shampoo and conditioner; flashlight; coolers for a day at the beach and portable beach chairs, for beach or island hopping. The daily towel exchange is nice and two large baskets are available for placing used towels, to keep them out of the way. The kitchen cabinets are stocked with plenty of plates, glassware, wine glasses, coffee mugs and large and small acrylic cups.

Mary has brought the beauty of nature from Sapphire Beach, and surrounding area, to the walls of her condo. Beautiful canvas prints are hung throughout and are a nice addition to the décor.

The two sliding glass doors have light filtering blinds that provide just the right balance of sunlight and privacy. Closing the blinds and turning up the AC when you leave each morning for the beach will keep the condo cool and comfy for your afternoon return. A late afternoon cocktail on the deck is perfect for watching the ferries and sail boats pass by.

My dining recommends are Iggie’s; Cruzan Beach Club; Sunset Grill; Sangria’s; Oceana Grand Cru (my favorite); Mim’s Seaside Bistro; Ocean Grill and High Tide Bar and Grill on St John. Catching a sunset from the beach or patio at High Tide is spectacular and should not be missed!

On busy cruise ship days, take the car barge (if you’ve rented a car) or the people ferry to St John for the day. If Cinnamon Bay, Trunk Bay and Honeymoon Beach are crowded, find your way to Salt Pond. Salt Pond is great for snorkeling and you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to catch the amazing view and a banana daiquiri at Mountain Top. We find the best time of day is 3:00 – 5:00 when cruise ships are not in port.

Food Center and Moe’s Fresh Market have a great selection of fresh meats and seafood. You can find a 5% off coupon for Food Center on vinow.com.

Book your stay at Cheeseburger in Paradise. You won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: I love sharing our vacation home with this lovely couple and am glad they like the remodeling and redecorating that we recently had done. Their recommendations for restaurants and activities are particularly valuable to me and to future guests given their years of vacationing at Sapphire Beach and exploring the islands. We hope to have them back for next year's anniversary celebration. Mary and Pat
