Our Sapphire Bliss allows for quick, easy access to the some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean as well as all of the Virgin Island attractions. Explore the two coral reefs teeming with marine life. Explore nearby Coral World or the quaint marina and wharf in Red Hook a short 3 minutes away.

At the end of a day of adventure, Our Sapphire Bliss will be your haven. Relax in our simple but comfortable living room. Curl up on the sofa and read your favorite book while the cool Caribbean breeze caresses your senses.

Watch a movie on our 40 inch flat screen TV or listen to your favorite playlist on our wireless Bluetooth speaker. Prefer nightlife? Then venture out to nearby Red Hook and the Island Time Pub, Duffy’s Love Shack, or Senor Frogs.

When you are ready to retire, rest easy on our pillow-top, king size mattress with pillows for every taste. At Our Sapphire Bliss you will find space for up to 4 adults to sleep.

About Mike and Dawn Rehling

Thanks to our careers as an airline professional and elementary school teacher we have been visiting the Caribbean for many years. We discovered St. Thomas and our beloved Sapphire Beach a few years ago and it has been a dream of ours to own a piece of this heavenly place. When the opportunity came for us to purchase a part of our Bliss we knew we had to jump on it. We have a great deal of knowledge about St. Thomas, Sapphire Beach and the surrounding islands. Let us help you make your vacation one to remember. Please e-mail us and we can help you to plan an itinerary that will make Our Bliss, Your Bliss!

Mike and Dawn Rehling purchased this condo in 2014

Why Mike and Dawn Rehling chose St. Thomas

Being seasoned travelers throughout the Caribbean and after staying at several different resorts on St. Thomas, we knew that this was where we wanted to be. Our condo is actually on the beach. There is a beautiful sandy portion perfect for pulling up a chair and basking in the sun. When it’s time to cool off we can don our snorkel gear and head out to the center of the beach in the grassy area and hang with the sea turtles (we always see Green Sea Turtles and have also seen Hawksbill Sea Turtles, both of which are endangered species). After a quick visit with the sea turtles and stingrays, you can swim to either the right or the left and you will be near the coral reefs surrounding the beach. You are assured to see beautiful fish, amazing coral, squid, spotted eagle rays and a variety of other interesting sea creatures. After a day in the sun and a quick shower in the amazing condo you can go a mile down the road to Red Hook and find an array of wonderful restaurants to enjoy some refreshments and then a tasty meal.

What makes this condo unique

Location, Location, Location! That's the saying anyway, and Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina lives up to that in every way. The perfect condo, on the perfect beach, with the perfect reef. It doesn't get any better than Our Sapphire Bliss. Located in Building C means your right in the middle of the action at Sapphire. The beach is less than a 50 steps away, the pool is adjacent to building C and the Marina is less than 100 yards from your front door. The Banana Cabana is right next to you or if you prefer a more casual atmosphere you can take the short stroll up to The Sapphire Grill and have lunch or dinner poolside. For the more adventurous you can 'hike' up the hill for some awesome bbq from Off The Grid.

Best Valentnes Ever

  • 5 of 5

How fortunate we were to stay in this property .. it was perfect in every way , quiet, good central location. The decor was beachy and fun..

We didn't lack for anything.. The book about the property and other info about the Islands was up to date and accurate .. we relied on it a lot.. Once again we can't express our appreciation enough to the care the owners have taken to think of everything .. we do recommend 2 things .. 1 hit a grocery store in town before you go out there .. the one in redhook was expensive and we were warned about this but went for the convenience ., Bring yourselves those sit down floaties for the water .. they have them at Target ..love, love, loved it ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Perfect location on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Great beach front condo within walking distance to Red Hook and the St. John ferry. Condo had everything that was needed for our trip and was very clean upon arrival. Mike and Dawn made sure that we had everything we needed ahead of time including a digital book of the area. The restaurant by the marina has recently changed to Slice VI and we had one of the better dinners (freshly caught Wahoo) we've had in a long time. Great gourmet pizzas as well! Would highly recommend this condo.

Thank you Mike & Dawn for helping make this mini / spontaneous vacation an easy, relaxing, & memorable one.

A wonderful time at "Our Sapphire Bliss"

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mike and Dawn's unit, due to their careful attention to details. There were ample towels, snorkel gear, chairs, coolers, etc... for my family of 4. We loved the beach theme of their unit and felt relaxed and at home whenever we returned to the room. Since we were a family of 4, it was great to be able to make our breakfasts and lunches in the room, saving us time and money. Then, we were able to enjoy going out for dinner in the many restaurants within a few minute drive. Mike and Dawn's attention to detail in providing great directions to local food markets, great restaurants, etc... was extremely helpful in preparing our trip and giving us additional ideas once we were there.

Mike and Dawn's unit is directly on the beach on the 2nd floor, providing for amazing views morning and night, with the security and privacy of being up one floor. Snorkeling at Sapphire is excellent, and the kids loved the small waves, and also spending time at the pool, which is a stone's throw from the unit. Sapphire is less than a mile from Red Hook, which has great restaurants, and also the Red Hook Dive Center, which my husband used to go diving 3x and loved it! It is also less than a 20 min. drive to Magen's Bay, and less than 10 to Coki Beach, 2 other great snorkeling sites we enjoyed during our trip.

If we are able to visit St. Thomas again, we will definitely see if Dawn and Mike have availability, as they would be our first choice.

We always appreciate when our efforts are recognized in a way that lets us know that all the hard work is making a difference in our guests experience.

We really enjoyed helping you navigate your way through the numerous things all first time visitors have questions about and putting your mind at ease as a first time customer of VRBO and the booking process. We hope we will see you again in the future! Mike and Dawn Rehling -Owners-Our Sapphire Bliss-
