Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Just walk out your door and your on the beach. Quiet and plenty of shade. Nice beach. Just a short taxi ride to Red Hook. Fish Tails was a great place for dinner.

Great location, view & snorkeling

  • 4 of 5

My husband, 8 year old daughter and I just took a quick vacation to St Thomas over New Year's and had a great time. The condo was a great size for the 3 of us. The ability to walk out directly on the beach was fantastic! The view was unreal. We loved that we could enjoy great snorkeling just a few feet from our condo. The beach attendant was super helpful as well. The location was very convenient to Red Hook but if you felt like hanging at the resort, you can grab lunch at the beach bar or dinner at Slice.

There were a couple of drawbacks. This is a bare bones condo. It provides the necessities but if you are looking for comfortable furniture, beds, and pillows, this might not be your pick. Also, the resort is not smoke-free. Our neighbor kept smoking on the patio so we had to retreat back into the condo and close it up multiple times to avoid it.

Overall, it was a great resort and we will likely go back.

Great place for a get-away

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in this condo and had a wonderful time. This unit is a true walkout onto the beach. It was recently updated and was very comfortable. The bay water is fairly quiet so we could snorkel and kayak easily from our beach and there is coral literally within walking distance of shore. The town of Red Hook is just minutes away with enough bars/grills/restaurants to keep you satisfied for your visit. Although we also really enjoyed the beachside bar/grill. It was nice to lounge on the beach and have a waitress come by to take our order for drinks/sandwiches. It felt very indulgent. Red Hook is also the location of the passenger and car ferries to St. Johns for convenient day trips to another amazing island.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week, the condo is great, the beach is awesome. We really liked the location, Red Hook is a lot of fun, close to St John ferry. We would plan our next trip around staying here again.

Location Great Five Star - Apartment Good

  • 3 of 5

Right on the beach - can't beat location as Sapphire is a great beach. Can get a little busy on days with lots of cruise ships but the passengers mostly stay down the other end of the beach.

Great little ground floor apartment with access directly on the beach. Owners kindly left cool box and mask and fins, there is couple of sun loungers to use too.

Very small niggles were cooking is tricky - I would say have brekkie and possibly lunch/sandwiches here and nip out to red hook for dinner (but hey your on holiday right!). AC was a little underpowered but fine for us.

Major thing really was there was pumping going on 24/7 in the car park directly behind the apartment for the whole time we were there which did kind of spoil the relaxing vibe - that took our rating the apartment from 4 stars to 3 stars unfortunately.

Saying that I would definitely book again - Owner is really helpful and responds quickly.

"Just What We Needed"

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful vacation on Sapphire Beach!! We wanted peace and quiet as well as sun and relaxation. That we got!! The condo was as described in the pictures and reviews. Chuy was a pleasure to work with while making our reservation. He was kind enough to answer all of our questions in a speedy manner. The condo was clean and cozy. The appliances all worked well and the large screen TV was perfect to watch The Open Golf Championship. The beach and views are awesome ! For seven days there were no more than 50 people on the beach at one time. A few days maybe less than 20. Plenty of shade if you get too hot. We saw no need to rent a car. There was always a taxi out front and the price was cheap. We Had provisions such as beer ,wine, soft drinks and snacks delivered by Fresh Foods Vi .com which really worked out well for us. If you want to save some money take some provisions for dinner via cooler. We ate out three times in Red Hook. Fish Tails was good. Try the lobster! Go shopping on days when there are no cruise ships in port. Also, well worth spending a day at the beach in St. John. Remember that you are not staying at an all inclusive 5 star resort. You will pay for bath towel service as well as cleaning service. We washed our towels at the Marina laundry and cleaned house to save money. Worked well for us. Beach towel service is free and Chuy has two beach chairs that you get to use. I picked up snorkel gear my first day at the front desk and returned it at check out. Overall, we had a 5 star experience. Thanks again Chuy for allowing us to stay and experience your home away from home....
