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.

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 St. Thomas

We chose Sapphire Beach because it is the absolute most beautiful beach on the island. The buildings are all being renovated outside-almost complete with this project-and the views are to die for, they 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!


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Beautifully remodeled condo with full view of beach

  • 4 of 5

Walk out the door and right into the water. Loved sitting on the porch with coffee and watching the waves. The condo was very modern and extremely clean. Everything was provided for a comfortable stay. I especially appreciated the owner providing such things as coffee filters, plastic wrap and spices. It made for an easy stay. Very close to Red Hook so convenient for dinner and ferry to St. John. On the last day we discovered amazing snorkeling off to the left of the beach.

I would have given it 5 stars except one day the beach was very crowded. We were told it was cruise ship excursions to the beach. It was not a problem we just moved our chairs back from the beach and sat in front of the condo.

Can't say enough good things about the condo owner. Thank you Kathy

Owner's Response: Thank you Sally for that wonderful review. We take great pride in being clean and comfortable with everything you would need for a relaxing stay on the beach. Unfortunately Sapphire Beach is a public beach, as are all the beaches on St Thomas. We cannot guarantee that every day you would have the beach to yourself, one or two days a week, we do have to share, darn it! Those are the days we recommend maybe a day trip over to St John to discover their beautiful beaches and shopping. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to have you back soon! Kathie

Would return in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this property enough - we had such a fantastic time in St. Thomas! Kathie, the owner, was extremely responsive in all communications and such a pleasure to work with.

Upon arrival and entering the unit, you were immediately greeted with a clean space not only in presentation, but in smell as well. We were with 2 other couples who had 2 separate units, and they all commented on how clean our unit smelled! It's a small touch, but went a long way in setting us off on the right foot to enjoying our stay.

The direct access to the beach that is literally steps off the patio was such a benefit. We took a boat ride/tour to snorkel with sea turtles and site see, and it was just a short walk to the neighboring Marina to hop on our boat. We mostly visited Red Hook for dinner, which was as simple as stepping out of the condo and catching one of the cabs that were waiting on property.

Hopefully we can get back to St Thomas soon - our stay was everything we expected and more!

Doesn't get much better than this for a stay on St. Thomas

  • 5 of 5

Clean! Convenient, literally ON the beach (a bit of foot traffic in front of this particular unit, as it is a public beach). So nice to have the option of shade trees on the beach if you're not a sun worshipper. Well appointed condo, missing nothing in terms of making our stay very, very easy. Kathy, the owner, did a great job communicating with us and was full of recommendations for grocery shopping and dining over our Christmas holiday stay. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it wholeheartedly. The ONLY suggestion I have is to replace the fitted bottom sheet on the bed, it seems to have lost its elastic to stay in place....... it's such a minor thing, I hesitate to even mention it! Bravo for this great place!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. My goal is a completely satisfied guest., so even though you consider the bedding minor, it has already been replaced. We do this on a regular basis. Your next visit will be flawless, my promise to you! Thank you! We look forward to your return. Kathie

Exactly like the pictures on the website. Very happy with the condo.

  • 5 of 5

I loved the main level with patio that opens up to the sand and beach. Love the beach. Easy to get to the Sapphire, felt safe as it has security Shack at entrance. Close parking to the room. The room was clean, most everything needed to cook with if you wanted to bring groceries and make meals. I think I would have liked to have more towels in the room so we didn't have to go find the laundry area to wash the couple of towels that were supplied. I wish the couch was cleaner and more comfortable as it was rattan with some not so comfortable cushions. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice. We mostly used the beach or beach hopped. I thought we would use the tennis courts until I saw them- very ratty looking. I really liked staying here and liked not having to 'check in and check out' , no lines to wait in. Our 'neighbors' for the week said they have stayed at this resort many times. I would recommend staying here to my friends. Close restaurants and some shops and a grocery store as well as the ferry to St. Johns. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived, very welcoming after the long flight, thank you Kathy!

Very relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property has great access to Sapphire Beach. Sapphire Beach was great for relaxing, swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. Everything was well cared for and clean. Many conveniences were included such as snorkeling gear, beach chairs and noodles. Very easy access to Red Hook and the ferry to St. John. The restaurants and stores in Red Hook were nice and convenient. We relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Amazing Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our stay at Sapphire @ Kathie's Place. You cannot ask for a better place to be if you want to wake up every day to your own personal paradise and plan your day as you see fit. There is so much beauty on these islands and so much right in front of you as you wake up each day. First... Kathie recommended a taxi service to pick us up at the airport.... Jimmy @ Marley Taxi. He was there when we arrived... our driver Dennis took us on a beautiful tour of the island. He set the tone for our next 7 days of the beauty we were going to experience. When we arrived, the condo was immaculate. As if it had been prepared just for our arrival! Our 7 days consisted of peaceful evenings and waking up to our own personal paradise... opening the sliding glass doors, listening to the waves while we lazily sipped our coffee, planning our day. We visited St. John twice and seven different beaches during our time here and each day was amazing...but it was always the comfort of our stay at Sapphire that made it feel like home away from home. Our only concerns were...taxis are somewhat expensive, if you do not rent a car... you might look at a map and think you can walk there... 1/4 mile... but it is steep uphill all the way with no sidewalks... better be in shape ;) Groceries are expensive... liquor is cheap. But you can buy them both in the same place. Plan accordingly ;) All this being said.... this was an ABSOLUTELY amazing vacation. These islands stay with you, they feel like home in a short time.... and Kathie's Place will make you want to come back. We are already planning our next trip!! Thank You Kathie for memories we will never forget!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit. We do our best to make sure every guest is comfortable and feels at home. Marley Taxi Service does a superb job in accommodating our guests. The island tour really gets you in the mood and gives you the feel of the island so you can proceed with making your plans for the week. Thanks so much for staying with us. Hope to see you again soon!
