The covered patio overlooks the gorgeous white sands and the calm crystal clear waters of Sapphire Beach. In the distance you can see our neighboring islands including St John, Jost Van Dyke and other British Virgin Islands.

Catch the sunrise over St John while sipping your coffee at the pool deck, and at the end of your day, catch the sunset with a bottle of wine while sitting on the patio.

Our completely renovated condo has a bright open floor plan and includes all the comforts of home. Our condo sleeps 2 very comfortably, with a brand new king size bed in the bedroom. It also features two flat screen TV’s-one in the bedroom and one in the living area .

The spacious bathroom is completely renovated too , with a new tile shower, two sinks and plenty of shelves and counter space. We have thick, plush bath towels, hotel sized soaps and shampoos and a hair dryer all included for your convenience.

Our rental comes with over-sized beach towels, a beach bag, a small insulated cooler and water noodles -all located inside the condo and beach ready.

About Kathie Jankowski

We just recently purchased our second condo here at Sapphire Beach. We love our first one so much, we wanted to expand!! We have been coming to St Thomas for over 10 years. Its our paradise and we would love to make it yours too.

Kathie Jankowski purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kathie Jankowski chose East End

We chose Sapphire Beach because it is the absolute most beautiful beach on the island. The building exteriors were all renovated outside in 2016-and the views cannot be beat. The water is crystal clear and excellent for snorkeling, swimming or just floating the day away. We feel this is the closest to paradise that we can possible be. It is our pleasure to be able to share it with you!

What makes this condo unique

Highlights of our rental-

The views!!!!!! You will feel an immediate calming sensation when you see the view!!!

On site marina for perfect access to water activities.

On site beach bar/restaurant.

Fresh water pool.

Convenient to shopping, restaurants and ferry.

Wonderful room

  • 5 of 5

As we have stayed in this unit before and were very happy, we re-booked for this year. Again, we were very happy. It is a clean, well maintained unit. The owners have furnished this unit with everything we could possibly need during our stay. We will definitely stay here again.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Sapphire Beach resort was wonderful. The unit was clean and well stocked. We had absolutely no problems at all. Kathie was wonderful through out the booking process and answered any questions that I had. She made herself available throughout our whole stay, which was very comforting. This was our first time visiting St. Thomas and it was fantastic! I will be returning and also utilizing Kathie's services again one day!

Condo is beautifull and well kept. Attention to detail is amazing. We did loose power a few times but it was brief and affected the entire resort. Owner has thought of everything, had a small flash lite on the night table. Unit even had beach bags, hard & soft cooler and folding beach chairs. Just in case you want to leave this beach, which you won't. Suggest guest check out condo before grocery shopping, you may buy items that are already provided. Most days the beach was busier than I've seen. Probably due to the re-opening of the beach bar, and access to the beach for visitors is very close to this unit. I found the beach bar pricey. Chicken sandwich had nothing but mayo and cheese, 3 plain hot dogs and 1 beer was $44.00. But they do make a great Pain Killer. Lots of great places to eat in Red Hook. Mollie Malones and Latitude 18 was my fav. Grocery shopping at the Food Center in Red Hook is convenient and for the most part cost no more than Pueblos, which is downtown. Take the Safari bus if you don't mind it making a few stops, cost $2.00 to get to town. Just need to walk to the street which looks like a difficult walk up hill but really isn't bad.

Thank you for sharing your beautifull condo with us

Owner's Response: Thanks you so much for this great review. We really enjoy sharing this treasure with others. You make a very good point, many condiments will be available, being left by recent guests. Ketchup, mayo, mustard and salad dressing especially. Those items are bought and many times just used once, sometime not at all, so we don't throw them out. This condo is pretty much front and center, close proximity to both the beach and the beach bar and just a very short walk over to the pool. We love the convenience of having everything within a few steps. We appreciate you staying with us and being such good guests! Hope to see you again real soon! Kathie

Beautiful Condo, just step from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our condo at Sapphire Beach. Comfortable furnishings, friendly staff, and the beach was just a few steps from our door. I recommend this unit to anyone.

Accommodations were just as described

  • 5 of 5

It was unexpected to walk in and have a bottle of wine and fresh flowers waiting!. Thank you Kathy, that was a very nice gesture after a long plane ride. The condo was just as described with all the amenities you will need. We had rented a car from the airport and ventured out the first night to get groceries. Quite convenient being 1/2 mile down the road from Red Hook. We did our major shopping at Plaza Extra in Tutu the following day. The water and weather was very beautiful, but was surprised that it rained some almost every day, but never a washout. We took the car ferry over to St Johns and learned WHY people rent a jeep instead of a car for the islands (with all the steep, winding roads). The view/beaches were gorgeous and not very crowded when we were there (no cruise ships in port that day). Aside from a very noisy group of guys staying in the condo two doors down who were up partying all night, the stay was very enjoyable. Someone must have complained to management because on day #3, they were asked to leave and were escorted off the property much to the relief of many tenants nearby. Everyone was courteous and helpful to those not familiar with the island. We enjoyed a sailboat excursion and again with a dinner cruise. The Beach Bar on site closes early (about 600-630pm), but drinks are very tasty and staff is friendly. We would recommend your condo to anyone who wants to get away, relax, and enjoy the same amenities as you would at home. Thank you for sharing your home with us. (First time in years that I've had the opportunity to read 4 books...who needs rest when you have the sound of the ocean to lull you to sleep).

Owner's Response: Sounds like the perfect vacation. We do love that it's so convenient to town for shopping or the ferry to St John yet so peaceful and relaxing to be right on the beach. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see back again someday soon! Thank you!
