About Samantha

We are the 'Zundels'. Welcome to our little piece of Heaven on earth. Ron works construction and I (Samantha) spends time with our three children. We are a homeschooling family that likes to spend our vacations together on the beautiful island of St, Thomas. We lived on the island during a construction project a few years back and had to return. The island is our home away from home. The Caribbean calls to us just as it will you. The sand is always between our toes and the salt air sweetly fills our lungs.

Samantha purchased this studio in 2012

Why Samantha chose St. Thomas

This year Ron and I (Samantha) celebrated our 20 year wedding anniversary in the Sapphire Village condos. We had the anniversary of a lifetime. Together we made the decision to purchase a condo. The five of us vacation together in our little piece of paradise. The kids can play at the pools or snorkel in the ocean. The stocked kitchenette makes breakfast, lunch, and dinners a snap.

We love the location of Sapphire Beach and the prestigious town of Redhook. The easy drive to the ferry docks makes it all the better.

Vacation with us and create your vacation of a lifetime. Your 'SECRETS' are safe with us.

What makes this studio unique

Why SECRETS@SAPPHIRE? Economical! Do the Caribbean the economical way. Stay here once and you will see. Our condo has everything you need to create a once in a lifetime vacation at a very affordable price. Spend your hard earned money on beach activities, exploring, touring the BVIs, snorkeling on St. John, visiting the duty-free shop downtown, and whatever else your heart desires.

Great place to stay while in Island Paradise

  • 3 of 5

Secrets at Sapphire was the perfect place to stay. My sister and I enjoyed this studio apartment very much. It was the perfect size for two people. I really enjoyed having two pool choices walking distance in the complex. It was very nice to have a restaurant/bar available to us for the days we were too tired from adventuring all day to go out for a meal. The apartment had everything we needed: including snorkel gear, towels, and fully stocked kitchen for cooking. Secrets even has an entertainment closet full of movies, books, and information for planning your day & night adventures. Sapphire marina and beach are just a short walk from the apartment. My sister and I had a great stay at your place. We would definitely stay here again. I recommend snorkeling, zip lining, para sailing and checking out other beaches on the island (Maegan's Bay was gorgeous)! The location is close to the ferry in Redhook, along with all your shopping and restaurant needs. Getting around in taxi's was easy. Thank you for sharing your lovely oasis with us. You helped my sister and I make memories that will last a lifetime.

~ We loved our stay! April

great location on St Thomas

  • 4 of 5

Nice studio in a great development. Great location on STT.

Redhook is down the street for dining, groceries, shopping and ferry service/charter boats elsewhere.

Sapphire beach and marina offer lots of activities or just a great spot to relax.

The village has two nice pools with food and drink service

Cozy, friendly, and cost effective.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this was a very positive experience for us. we stayed five nights in Sapphire Village, and we enjoyed it very much. Pertinent positives include proximity to the beach, plenty of fresh towels and linens, and a well-cleaned and well-maintained appearance. Most negatives were well beyond the control of the owners and property managers. For instance, our power went out, but it was the entire east end of the island that went out, and it had nothing to do with failures of the property owners. I texted Samantha once we found the power was out, and she responded very quickly.

One thing to note is that this is very quiet community. There is a bar and restaurant on property, but we were disappointed to find that it closes early (midnight or earlier). The bartender told us that the primary residents were an older crowd and had recently complained about the bar being open late. We and the other young(ish) couples had to find our late night party farther from our doorstep than anticipated.

We did not rent a vehicle, but cabbed everywhere, and it was fairly inexpensive. Usually four dollars a person from Sapphire Village to Red Hook. While Red Hook is only a mile or so away, it is on a twisty, hilly, narrow road, and we found paying for dollars for the convenience was well worth not risking our lives.

If you want an expensive, fancy dinner one night, I recommend Old Stone Farmhouse over the Bleuwater inside the nearby Ritz Carlton. The food, wine, and service is better there. If you plan on exploring the British Virgin Isles, I recommend booking with the Bad Kitty, which is faster, nicer, and friendlier than the standard ferries, they take you through customs without making you wait in line, and they have an open bar!

It was about six or seven minute walk to Sapphire Beach, and I highly recommend the short, cheap cab ride to Coki Beach, which is gorgeous and has "Coral World," where you can do guided snorkeling, scuba, or "snuba" (basically scuba with the air tank floating above you, and depth limited to 20 feet).

Saint thomas/secrets

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a really wonderful stay at secrets. Our place was clean, spacious, and had plenty of information for local things to do. Everything was as detailed and better than expected. Whatever we needed secrets had from cookware to snorkeling gear! The view from our window was amazing! Really close to red hook and the ferry. There is a short walk to the beach but we enjoyed the little pathway to it in the mornings. The staff is very friendly! Far from cruise ship flock! But close to everything that's happening. Many yummy restaurants to choose from in red hook area. I would most def recommend this place!

Shouldn't be a Secret

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well equipped with beach towels, snorkeling gear, day coolers, etc. It was the perfect hub for our usvi vacation. Close to Red Hook where you can take the ferry over to St. John or grab some pizza at Island Time Pub.

The condo is located right on Sapphire Beach which is one of the best beaches on the island. Excellent snorkeling. ..especially if you are a good swimmer and can reach the point all the way on the left side as you are facing the water.

The owners were very easy to work with. Enjoy your stay!
