Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina condo description
This unit is a professionally renovated one bedroom condo on the first floor at Sapphire Beach. Walk out onto the sand through the wall to wall glass doors from the living space of the unit - the view is incredible. We are located next to the pool, facing the ocean, and adjacent to a stone jetty/peninsula which has great snorkeling. This unit and the general location is great for honeymoons, romantic getaways, fun in the sun, and pure relaxation. Two minutes away is Red Hook - there you can find ferries to St John, endless restaurants, and night dancing....
We are basically set up for couples.
Car rentals and airport pickups can be arranged. If you need a car we have a Toyota Corolla. Driving is on the left - be prepared for some new, self taught, occasionally nerve racking driving lessons if it's your first time - but be aware - if you are planning to get around a lot, driving is less expensive than taxis.
Check out the availability calendar below - if you miss by a day I can arrange an overnight in a nearby unit - make your move to take your vacation in the best unit in Sapphire....
There are a lot of nice places to rent around St Thomas, but Sapphire has the best beach, the best general location, and this unit is the best available !!!
Hope to hear from you.........

Long-delayed review for excellent visit
Long-delayed review for excellent visit
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and it was perfect! Pete is quick with communication, and keeps a very well-stocked, well-maintained, and clean condo. You can tell he uses the property often himself and it's not just an investment. The local property manager picked us up from the airport and even stopped at the grocery store on the way to the condo so we could get provisions. We used the grill every day of our stay. Pete allows the use of his car (a necessity because of the location) for a very reasonable $25 a day. We would definitely want to stay here if we come back to Sapphire Beach.

Unbelievable vacation time.
Unbelievable vacation time.
We stayed at peter's place and was exactly what he advertised it as. The condo was clean and was most enjoyable as we were able to walk straight to the pool or to the beach and swim and snorkel. This was the most relaxing vacation that we have had in years. The outside of the condo is being renovated and we would love to see the finished product. It was tough to say goodbye to st. Thomas yesterday! We would go back and ask for this condo again.

What an amazing experience and wonderful accomodations. Cannot say enough about how wonderful this Condo was - we loved every minute of our stay. The condo was extremely clean and much better than the pics. Waking up each morning and walking out of the sliding glass doors to the beach/pool/sand/sunshine - it had everything. Snorkeling was great. The staff throughout Sapphire Beach were so wonderful and so friendly. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting to relax and simply enjoy the beauty of the island.

We stayed 1 week in this fully furnished condo, right on the beach. The views were spectacular. The owner provided excellent information prior to our arrival and had resources available for us on arrival. Renting his car made our trip even better. The area is beautiful, safe and very relaxing. We would definitely return for another visit at this location.

The way to relax!
The way to relax!
We chose D103 based on the recommendation of friends, and our high expectations were exceeded. FIRST, this condo was clean and very well maintained. You would be hard-pressed to find a nicer kitchen in a rental; the bathroom is awesome; the decorations and color schemes are very nice; the wifi speed is good (and probably as good as you get on St. Thomas); there is a safe to lock away valuables, etc. It is the perfect size for a couple's get-away, and had we brought a small child or two, the same would be true. NEXT, snorkeling Sapphire Bay is amazing--we swam with spotted eagle rays; turtles, and all kinds of beautiful fish. PLUS, this is a great spot because you are so close to lots of fun spots at Red Hook, and with the car associated with the unit, you are read to explore. We are not night-people, but even for us, Red Hook had a great deal to offer, including good food (exception was Molly Malone's--way over-priced for average food); a day sail (highly recommend Rumbaba); and ferry's for a day-trip to St. John. OF NOTE, , timing and weather are obviously key. We booked the last week of August--prime hurricane time--but our luck held, and our weather was beautiful, and we pretty much had Sapphire Bay all to ourselves on days without cruise ships--and even in the mornings and afternoon's of cruise ship visits. In fact, everywhere we went on both St. Thomas and St. John, we pretty much had the bays, cays, and beaches to ourselves; I'd take this and the risk of a hurricane (with trip insurance for the flight, of course) over crowded bays, cays and beaches any day. LASTLY, if someone tells you Sapphire is rundown (we were told this by a well meaning individual), don't be deterred from this unit--D103. There may be some truth to the statement as applied to other units, but not this one. You are not getting a full spa with this property, but you are getting a slice of paradise. We could not have been happier with the quality of the unit and the great price. The property is accurately described and the owner is great and very responsive to calls and emails. We heartily recommend this property--we stayed four nights, and would go back in a heartbeat.

My husband just got back home from the best vacation ever! The condo is just as you see it in the photos. The view from the patio is breath taking. I am so happy I came across Pete's listing. He was vry helpful from my first phone call. He arranged for someone to pick us and take us back to the airport. They even took us to the grocery store on our way in. I have nothing negative to say at all. I am already planning my next trip back!!!! :) Thanks Pete for sharing your condo with us!!!

Sorry it took so long, we stayed at your condo during Thanksgiving 2011, Your place worked out splendid. The location was perfect. We enjoyed being able to sit on the lanai and just watch the boats come in and out of the harbor and to see the lights of St. John every night. There was everything we needed in the condo, and it was great having the car, we did allot of exploring. The beach area was only a short walk away and the snorkeling was fabulous. We were amazed at seeing all the turtles and eagle rays right on our beach. If we ever come to St. Thomas again we would absolutely try to get this condo again. Thank you for making your place so comfortable Diane & Bob

What a wonderful place to stay in St. Thomas! My boyfriend and I couldn't have asked for a better place. First, the condo is perfect. Peter sets up a beautiful condo that is clean and well equipped. Every morning, we had breakfast on the patio looking out to the ocean. The kitchen is all new with all the appliances you need to cook during your stay. Also, the cleaning ladies come in every day and refresh your towels which is great. Although Sapphire resort was a bit quiet, the beach was amazing. We walked down toward the snorkle gear and it was great and had the perfect amount of people on it (not too crowded not to quite). Peter arranges a great deal where you get free lounge chairs, snorkel gear and floats for the water (which is amazing). At first I was worried there was no food places near the beach for during the day; however I was wrongly mistaken. Two different restaurants have constant waiters on the beach taking food and drink orders, which I loved. The condo is in a great location. Very close to the ferry and center of town. Duffy's love shack is a must especially on Wednesdays- Ladies drink free! Also, I highly recommend taking the ferry to St Johns. During our stay we also took the Bad Kittie boat which is full day adventure with an open bar going to 4 different British virgin islands. it was AMAZING!!! You get to go to Virgin Gorda, the Bathes, and Jose Van Dyke which is a great little island. It really is a great way to do some island hopping! If you are looking for restaurants outside of Red Hook, we went to a great one at the Marriott called Havana Blue overlooking the beach. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better trip!! Peter really sets up a great atmosphere for vacationers. The condo is clean, nicely decorated and in a safe location. Also, Peter does a great job in leaving a lot of information/magazines in order for vacationers to gain info. on whats the best things to do during your stay. Not to mention- Sam, who picks you up from the airport is EXTREMELY Helpful and nice! He is the best! Definitely stay here if you want to have a relaxing yet fun vacation in your own private condo right on the beach!! Thanks again Pete!

Great Condo - Great Location

Wow! Condo was clean & well-equipped. One of the few with a 2nd TV in the bedroom (we like to fall asleep to it). Bed was very comfortable. Living area is very usable & comfy too. The free land-line saved us a lot of money since verizon was going to charge $2 a minute. The condo's wi-fi & tv channels were a plus. We were able to watch our local teams while other guests had to go somewhere else. The condo's location was perfect for us. My husband prefers the pool, while I want to snorkel & float in the blue carribean sea. Both were just steps away from the back slider. The resort itself is in need of some repairs: for instance the pool bar/grill isn't open; but no worries since this is one of the closest condos to the pool & you have (hopefully) stocked your refrigerator. The condo has a nice cuisinart blender by the way. Water is safe & drinkable. We had the 3 T's: fresh towels, TP and trash emptied every day. Not true for the other folks we met. I think the maids would have done more had we asked. As far as tipping them; there are different maids each day so don't wait until the end. The snorkeling and beach are fantastic. Long beach, nice for a good walk. Lots of iguanas but not many shells. I saw an eagle ray, turtles and countless fish/coral right off the beach on both sides of the reef. The guys at the dive-in are friendly & will tell you where the best spots are. There are 5-6 ft Tarpon that hang out in the marine next door. We'd see them everytime we walked to the bar/grill up the hill. We took a day trip with capt Tom from "Pocket Yatchs". He was very knowledgable & took us to some great, private spots for snorkeling. Be sure to take your passport or birth certificate with a raised seal. We wished we had because everyone seems to go to the BVI. We went to St Johns. Very clean & cute & well worth a visit. I dove with Red Hook dive company. Nice & friendly. We spoke with many people who return to this resort over & over again. One of the reasons is that many areas of the island do not get a breeze & it's too hot to be out. Pete's place is a perfect location for getting a nice breeze right off the point. Pete was awesome & very attentive. He really wants his guest to have a good time. We rented his car which is definitely the way to go. His is a better car than some of the ones offered by Budget and the convenience can't be beat.

Pete: My wife and I just returned from St. Thomas and would like to thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay in your condo. It met and exceeded all we expected. Sam was very curtious and a wealth of information regarding the island. The use of your rental car is an absolute must with the many adventures into Red Hook for the nightlife. The beach is great for snorkeling as well as simply laying around and soaking up the sun with a full glass of our favorite beverage. The resort itself could use a little TLC and I am sure that is in the works but the condo space was perfect. Recommedations to future occupants would be the Horizon II boat excursion is a must do. The ferry to St. John is a piece of cake given the location and one of our favorite nights was dinner at Pools and Pavilions, a short 5 min drive from the condo. Red Hook is great for nighlife with a number of good restaurants as well. Overall, I would give our vacation a 9 out of 10 with the only downfall being the travel back to the mainland. Thank you again and I look forward to coming back very soon.
