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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice location and view

  • 4 of 5

The vacation rental is very clean and well decorated. The kitchen had everything you need and included quality cookware. The property manager is very nice and responds promptly back to questions. We had an issue with the coffee pot not fitting the coffee maker. I sent her an email and a woman delivered a brand new coffeemaker that afternoon. The king size bed was very comfortable. The location is on the first floor, you are steps from the ocean. Every morning we sat on the patio and looked out to the beautiful blue Caribbean ocean. The beach is beautiful with white sand and we went snorkeling every day. I was very happy with the location being less than a mile from the town of Red Hook. Most restaurants are located there.

I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental and would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for such a nice review. I do my best to make sure everything is “just right”, and believe me, a coffee maker that isn’t working properly can ruin anyone’s morning and I wasn’t having any of that!!!! The snorkeling here is awesome and I’m so happy you were able to enjoy it. I hope to have you back soon!! Kathie

Honeymoon Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This location seemed like a dream. From the very beginning Kathy was very accommodating! We were greeted with a bottle of wine and a warm welcome! We really enjoyed watching the ocean in the morning and drinking a nice cup of coffee! The rental shop is right next door where you can enjoy paddle boarding, snorkeling, and etc. We were steps from the beach bar where all the staff were very friendly! Thank you so much for a beautiful honeymoon, and sorry for the late review! We cannot wait to come back to St. Thomas in the future.

Better thank expected

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as described or better. We really enjoyed talking with the neighbors and the abilith to walk directly out the patio onto the beach. Found some great restaurants nearby and also cooked some meals in. Most relaxing vacation in years (except roads are poorly marked on the island).

Beautiful Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The beach was gorgeous! Perfect blue water. The view from the condo was amazing. Right in front of the condo, there was a nice sandy bottom for entry into the water. Also had some good snorkeling areas. The condo was very comfortable and everything we needed. We loved everything! The pool was very nice as well. Next to the building was a bar and snack bar which we enjoyed a few times. We were really happy with Sapphire Beach Resort and this condo. Very beautiful. The town of Red Hook is a super quick taxi ride away where there is a nice grocery store and had beer, wine and liquor as well. The ferry over to St. John is in Red Hook too. We enjoyed the short ferry ride over to spend a little time on St. John. The owner of the condo was great to work with. Very quick to respond when setting up this vacation and sent us some helpful information about the area. I would definitely recommend this condo and Sapphire Beach Resort and would stay here again when back in St. Thomas!

Fabulous Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in Jan. 2018 (4 months after the 2 big hurricanes). Our condo was perfect, no damage. You can see damage in surrounding areas (and you can see they are working on repairs). When we were there the tennis courts still needed repair along with the bar by the pool. The pool was undamaged. The bar by the place where you can rent paddle boards, kayaks, etc. was open serving drinks and food. The rental place was also open. The water is beautiful, clear, and warm. There are fewer trees now than in the pictures (for me it was a plus). The view is wonderful. It was easy snorkeling here. You don’t have to go that far out to see underwater life.

The people working there were friendly and helpful. Thy will bring over lounge chairs to where ever you want them on the beach. They collect the chairs again at dusk.

Red Hook is very close. You could walk there except there isn’t a sidewalk or shoulder, so it would be dangerous. It is a short cab ride. There is a good pizza place that delivers to the condo (along with a couple of other delivery services).

The condo has a perfect patio where you can sit have a drink, eat, or whatever in the shade while you look out over the beach at the water. Or take a step out and you are right on the beach. They have a handy little cement pool at the edge of the patio to wash the sand off your feet, so you don’t bring it up on your patio.

Inside the condo was clean, bright, and well laid out. Everything you might need is provided (including beach items including some snorkeling). The bed was very comfortable. One evening the neighbors were noisy. All we had to do was shut the sliding glass door and we couldn’t hear them anymore. The condo was very quiet.

We would absolutely stay here again if we go back to St Thomas.

Excellant and Beautiful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is absolutely beautiful inside. Granite counter tops, fully equipped kitchen, nice couch with coffee table facing the TV and a separate dining table as well. Bed very comfortable. The bathroom has a great walk in shower, and his and her sinks. Despite the hurricanes, AC, WiFi, TV and internet all good. Walk out thru the sliding glass doors right to the beach! We sat on the patio having coffee every morning with a fabulous view of Sapphire Beach.

The property is only minutes away from Red Hook, great dining, shops, and groceries at Moe's Market. Also close to Lindquist Beach, Coki Beach, and Secret Harbor for swimming and snorkeling.

Last but not least there is a wonderful pool to enjoy.

I would highly recommend this property, we really enjoyed out vacation here!
