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 East End

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 at 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Ms.Zundel,

It was great staying at your place. The movies, snorkeling equipments are very thoughtful. Besides the mosquitoes, everything was good. Thanks!

Nice clean great location

  • 5 of 5

Very cute place.

Complex had beautiful tropical trees and flowers. Very quiet complex. Everything was very clean inside and out. Would definitely stay again.

Saphire beach was one of the best in the island. Nice shade trees over the sand and good snorkling with the equipment in the condo.

We loved it.

Great deal for the price.

A week at Sapphire

  • 4 of 5

The pictures perfectly portray what you will be getting into. The condo is on the first floor of the building but since you are on a steep hill it provides you with the opportunity of a view over the condos lower on the hill. The AC isn't the best ever but there are plenty of fans in the room to keep the air flowing at the least. The fridge is equipped enough to prepare a variety of good food. It is a mismatch of utensils to cook with but that is just what you get at rentals usually; it makes due. The freezer has two ice trays. Watch out for the cabinets in the hall way, they are not kind to tall people! The cabinet in the bathroom has various toiletries you might need if you are in a pinch but not everything. There is not wifi in the condo but the office has some wifi. Also we had a Verizion and a Sprint phone; Verizon was generally not getting any reception at all but Sprint had LTE reception almost everywhere albeit a bit slower than the USA LTE service. (service also worked onto St John for navigation purposes only and got pretty slow on the far side).

The walk down to the beach is hilly but paved, you can even drive your car down to the lowest parking area and walk from there eliminating 2 steep hills.

The only thing that could have made the place any better is a balcony, so if that is a deal breaker for your than you will have to look elsewhere. Great bang for your buck here though.
