GUESTBOOK COMMENTS

★★★★★ 5 stars by Sandra, June 2015

“My husband and I stayed in the amazing unit on our honeymoon and words can hardly describe how incredible this condo is! Going asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean waves every day was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life, I’ve never slept better! The huge comfortable bed definitely helped too. The pictures are spot on, but they don’t even do it justice to the real thing. It was all of the comforts of home, plus some with a million dollar view. The owners provide you with snorkeling equipment too! So every day we’d walk 20 yards from the unit and jump in the ocean and snorkel for hours. It’s one of the best spots on the island to snorkel; we saw hundreds of tropical fish, sting rays, sea urchins, and beautiful coral….and it was ALL right in front of our beach. The water was like bath water, it was never under 80 degrees, even at night. We also really enjoyed soaking in the sun and having beach waiters bring us Caribbean cocktails during the afternoon. It was so nice preparing meals in the upgraded kitchen, then eating on the balcony and watching the waves. The main grocery store (which is extensively stocked) is a couple of miles away, so we were able to jump in the rental car and save some money by eating in the privacy of the condo for a couple of the days. The first night we had dinner at the resort and I had the best chicken roulade I’ve ever tasted. The location was perfect! It’s about a mile from the town of Red Hook where there were fantastic restaurants and fun bars. Everyone we talked to in Red Hook was very nice, especially the bartenders and servers; we were able to get some great advice for places to check out while we were waiting for our ferry to St. John. We ended up never having to drive to Red Hook and took taxis instead, which conveniently wait outside of the unit all hours of the day/evening. The owners were so nice and very easy to get ahold before and during our stay. They made sure we were comfortable and had a great time! We can’t wait to come back and stay here again! The hardest part of our trip was leaving this beautiful paradise. ”

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE OUR CONDO

All units at the resort are individually owned. You will stay at the residential condo like at home without a daily maid service. Note that the furnishings and conditions of the units can vary WIDELY. Our two-story 'villa' is almost twice the floor space as the other suites on Sapphire Beach. We added a Murphy bed at the lower level so we can be considered as a 2BR residence. It's like being in Paradise!

PLEASE SEE ALSO OUR NEW LISTING FOR 2nd FULLY RENOVATED LUX CONDO (SMALLER UNIT) on VRBO, LISTING NO. 680238: http://www.vrbo.com/680238

We would like to take a moment to say 'thank you' for choosing our home away from home at Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina on St. Thomas. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments along the way.

Thank you for your consideration.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great host with an amazing packet of information sent to me in advance. The host is amazing and as described. It is literally right on the beach as part of a private group of condos. All the fixtures are new and the house is well stocked with utensils and beach towels and beach toys. It was a great stay and I appreciate how much the host went out of her way to accommodate me.

Great stay on sapphire beach

  • 5 of 5

Clean condo on the beach, close to red hook which makes it convenient to go to St. John. Pesce was the best restaurant we ate at by far. Also the cup n kettle was a great place for breakfast and had amazing smoothies! Unfortunately the pool bar was closed for renovation, but I am sure when it gets back up it will be great! Thanks Bianca!!

Beautiful Modern Condo on Beach with Access to Restaurants and Boat Charters

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Sapphire Beach earlier this week. The unit is in great condition and as described, and Bianca and Paul were on top of all of the details to make sure our stay was as pleasant as could be, and were very accommodating to a few last minute wrinkles and needs for our trip. The beach is beautiful, and will be even nicer once the renovations are complete. Location offers a 2 minute drive to restaurant options in Red Hook, which was nice since we did not want to drive the hilly island roads at night. Walking distance to the marina for easy charters to BVI or ferry to St. John. Would highly recommend!!!

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo twice this past year - once in March & then this past October. The condo is absolutely beautiful, very clean & has amazing views. Being that I used to live on the island - staying in the condo with all the amenities - including A/C was fabulous. The owners Paul & Bianca are so easy to deal with & very informative. We did have a little mix up this last time we came with not having enough pillows & blankets to accommodate all guests but one quick phone call to Paul & everything was taken care of. I definitely will recommend this condo to my friends & family if they are planning a trip to STT not only because of how beautiful the condo is but how nice the owners are. Thanks again Paul & Bianca for letting us share in on your little piece of heaven on Sapphire Beach!!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful, comfortable, and in a great location. We loved the pool at night, and after doing a beach tour of both St Thomas and St John, we were happy to see that one of the nicest beaches was right out our door. There are plenty of activities, bars, and restaurants a mere stones throw away (eat at the Off The Grid food truck!). The owners were very responsive, friendly, and helpful when we had any questions or problems. My only complaint is that we have to leave. I will definitely rent this condo again.

Breathtaking views from a Modern beachfront apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 3 year old daughter and I stayed 3 nights in this gorgeously renovated beachfront villa. It is clear that no detail was spared - from the furniture to the kitchen to the electronics, this place is all bells and whistles, and the 3 of us absolutely LOVED our stay here. The photos just cannot do justice to the views from this property - they are exquisite! The beach is wonderful and we snorkeled with the gear that was kindly provided by the owners every day. The pool is magnificent and all 3 of us, but particularly my daughter, couldn't wait to have our morning swim there. The owners were prompt with their communication and provided everything. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
