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 Estate Smith Bay

We chose Sapphire Beach because it is absolutely the most beautiful beach on the island. The building exteriors were all renovated outside in 2016/2017-and the views cannot be beat. The water is crystal clear and excellent for snorkeling, swimming or just floating the day away.

We are a short 1/2 mile from downtown Red Hook for the convenience of dining out, shopping and the ferry to take you to our surrounding islands. 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-

We are located ON THE BEACH! A Caribbean Island Beach! 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.

Perfect location and wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent 9 days here over the holidays and had a wonderful stay!!! Kathie, the owner, went above and beyond to make sure we had all the info we needed before we arrived and then sent a message to check in with is the night of our arrival. She helped with suggestions for places to eat, called the grocery store to see if they would be open when we arrived on Christmas Day and even called several people to help us find a way to get to Jost Van Dyke since things still aren't back to normal post hurricanes. Her housekeeper did some light shopping for us before we arrived and had everything I had asked for waiting in the condo when we arrived. The condo was lovely, clean and well equipped. It's location right on the beach is awesome! The grounds people were friendly and the beach bar serves great drinks, cheeseburgers and hotdogs. We were only 5 minutes to Red Hook with several good restaurants. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend this condo! Thanks Kathie!

Great property! Very clean and recently updated. The pictures do not do it justice. Owner is quick to respond. We had very short notice. Less than a day to be exact and she was very accommodating. We were very lucky this condo was still available for our stay. The condo is in a great location and the view is georgeous!! We look forward to returning again!!

The condo was well appointed, clean, and the location was excellent. The exterior grounds on the beach side were well maintained. We would stay here again.
