Beautifully Remodeled Studio With Mesmerizing Views To St. John And The BVI.
About John White
Jean and I (John) both grew up in the New York metro area but have lived in northern Vermont for almost 30 years now. We met in Manhattan the early 1980's when we both worked for the same company. About 15 years ago Jean gave up corporate work to teach yoga full-time – quite a change, but a very rewarding one. I have recently retired after working for almost 20 years for a wonderful company called Gardener's Supply. We live near Lake Champlain and enjoy sailing during the very short period that constitutes Summer in this latitude. We have two beautiful and spirited granddaughters who keep us busy. And amused.
John White purchased this Studio in 2014
Why John White chose Estate Smith Bay
Sapphire Hill Village is a well kept, well managed complex in a spectacular location. On site we have two pools with lounge chairs and tiki tables, a restaurant/bar and laundry. A car is not mandatory (although we usually rent one for convenience). Sapphire Beach, with lovely sand, great snorkeling and equipment rentals is right next door. So too is the Sapphire Marina where you can find day sails, fishing charters, BVI day trips and boat rentals. Red Hook - with restaurants, clubs, groceries, banking, shopping and BVI or St. John ferries - is a a half-mile away. There is a bus/taxi stop at the Sapphire Hill Village entrance and taxis are readily available.
What makes this Studio unique
We bought Seabreeze because we wanted to be near Red Hook, we liked Sapphire Hill Village and the view is to die for. After we bought it, we quickly found that - since it faces east - we not only get a daily show at sunrise, but also have a virtually continuous breeze from the easterly trade-winds. Seabreeze needed extensive renovation. We had heard some horror stories about similar undertakings and expected the worst. But we were very, very lucky. The builder we hired turned out to be fantastic. He managed the whole project and gave us great advice and guidance. We hired a very talented cabinet maker who built ans installed the custom cabinets and vanity on time and on budget. The result is a very pretty and pleasant place that we have great affection for. So far, our guests have agreed.

Highly recommend Seabreeze!
Exactly as described
Will definitely visit Seabreeze again!!! ❤️
Beautiful and relaxing
the view...wow! Every single morning we had our coffee and breakfast out on the balcony, with the incredible view of Saint John and the surrounding Cays. The condo is the perfect size and equipped with everything that you could possibly need. The neighborhood in which the condo resides is very well kept and feels extremely safe. It’s just a 2 minute drive into red hook, where we took the ferry almost every day into Saint John. I would 100% recommend this condo for a beautiful, relaxing, and affordable trip!
Perfect Location and Fantastic View
We are so glad that we chose to stay at Seabreeze in Sapphire Village. The minute we enter the door, we are surprised by the breathtaking view even we saw pictures. We watched sun rise from the balcony everyday. The location is perfect. Sapphire beach is minutes walking away. The beach is one of the most beautiful beach in the island and nice snorkeling beach. It is very close to Red Hook. Just one stop by Safari bus and $5/person by taxi. It is very easy to catch Safari bus or get a taxi.
John, the owner was very helpful providing information. I mentioned I couldn't rent a car , he immediately sent me Safari bus route map and information. We want to thank John for letting us stay at his studio. Also the room is decorated nicely and very comfortable.
This property was just right for us. Right size, right location and right price.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at John's Seabreeze condo. Had a fantastic view, very clean and well appointed and was located on the east end of St. Thomas, close to some of the best beaches. The ferry to St John was just 5 minutes away at Red Hook just down the hill. We rented a Jeep but decided at the end that the taxi services were so good on the island that we could have done without the headache of the rental car.
Good location with a gorgeous view! We enjoyed our week long stay at this 1 bed studio condo. It has everything you need plus beach chairs & a cooler to go hangout at the nearby beautiful Sapphire Beach. Restaurant onsite was just ok, the pizza was good. Getting around is a little difficult, the safari bus only goes one way into Red Hook so you have to walk the road with no shoulder or take a taxi back. This place was fairly empty probably due to the construction going on from the hurricanes. This bldg & a nearby building had roof/gutter repairs going on which woke us up every morning at 7a, so there was no sleeping in... also the bed squeaked with any little movement but that should be an easy fix by the owner. If you hangout on the balcony around dark, use mosquito repellent :)
Overall it was a nice place for the money & an enjoyable experience.
Great spot with amazing views
Very clean and well organized rental. Great location minutes from Red Hook. Views from balcony are amazing, pool and restaurant are just steps away.
