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.

Nice condo, right on the beach, exactly what we wanted.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Incredible experience

  • 5 of 5

The pictures for this location do not do it justice. The view from the back porch is amazing, the beach is right at your feet and the condo is clean, spacious, and very comfortable.

During the day, the restaurant next door is open and available for great food and any drink you might want. At night, the grounds are quiet and calm, my wife and I walked along the beach at night amazed by the beautiful view of St. John and the fact we had the beach to ourselves.

The unit is stocked with snorkling gear, beach chairs, coolers, etc.

If you like snorkling, Sapphire beach had some of the best we found all week.

Red Hook is half a mile away and there are plenty of restaurants and nightlife to keep you entertained. This is where the ferry is located to travel to St. John, which is another added convenience.

Every day we were down we commented how glad we were that we stayed where we did. I highly recommend this location and this unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review. We agree location is everything, and ourloction is top notch. You just can't beat the views and the privacy! That feeling of having the beach all to yourself is priceless. Being so close to town yet feeling like you're on your own private island. That's what we consider perfection. I'm so glad you were happy with your choice of our condo. We hope to have you back again sometime soon! Kathie

Great stay in a good location!

  • 3 of 5

Our stay at Kathy's condo at Saphire beach was very nice. The condo is very clean and in a great location, just steps from the Sea and a quick cab ride to Red hook. We look forward to a return here in the future. Be aware when the cruise ships come in, the beach gets extremely crowded in front of condo A. My husband and I took the opportunity to swim in the pool until the beach was quiet.

Looking Forward to our Next Stay

  • 4 of 5

We love love the size of the room, the view from the patio was beautiful. We were impressed with the response time it took to replace an in operative safe. The bathroom towels were a little musty however the Hot water in the bathroom was excellent. I enjoy sitting on the balcony and hearing the wave crashing onto the beach while having breakfast. I did wish I could secure balcony door from the outside instead of going through the front door, than having to go around the building. We were impressed with all the amenities the room came with. Kathy was a pleasure to work with. The only thing wrong with our trip, was that our stay was too short....We look forward to our future stay. Hernandez

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We try to have everything perfect for everybody but we do ocassionally experience these little glitches- like a safe that doesn't work. I'm thankful for an staff that is on top of everything and will go out of their way to replace or fix whatever is needed on the spot. That safe wasn't going to get the best of us! Replaced within two hours. No problem! Smooth sailing after that and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Can't wait to have you back. Thanks again!

Super Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo - awesome location - right where it's all happening! It's a lovely and quiet beach overall and yet it has a little shop and a small grill and bar right on the water (bar not in view of the condo which is good, but just a tiny walk which is nice). All the best swimming and sandy beach area is directly behind this A building condo. What a great relaxing vacation! Thanks!!!
