Sapphire Village condo description

Caribbean art and decor line the walls of this lovely, well appointed, 2 bedroom; 2 bath suite; which we named Kiribe. We are part of Sapphire Village (up on the hill), in the Tobago Building. Kiribe's two double private balconies overlook Sapphire Beach, Grass, Mingo and Thatch Cays, as well as the British Virgin Islands of Tortola, and Jost Van Dyke. This unit has two completely separate bedroom/bath combinations and is perfect for two couples or a family to share. We have a full kitchen with all the utensils you will need to eat in or use our charcoal grill. Between May 2010 and January 2011 we completely refurnished our living room with classic wicker furniture. In January 2011 we put in a new LCD flat screen to go with our CD player and an Ipod port for the steel drum music you long to hear. You can keep cool with our three air conditioners, most recently put in in July 2012 but better yet, have the prevailing sea breeze keep you cool. While taking in the ocean breeze you will note that the perfectly manicured grounds with lush local flora, coupled with the breathtaking view of the turquoise Caribbean Sea, will leave no doubt that you are in Paradise.

Sapphire Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on St. Thomas, is a 5 minute walk down a tree lined hill. Snorkel Sapphire Beach and discover turtles, stingrays, eagle rays, puffer fish, squid, conch, and thousands of reef fish. For those who want a close by spot to rest or test the water, a lovely pool and restaurant are attached to the building.

For the young and young at heart, the marina next door offers sailing, boating and fishing charters as well as jet ski rentals. For scuba divers, we highly recommend the pros at Red Hook Dive Center 340-777-3483. It's right down the hill in nearby Red Hook. Ask for Wayne and tell him Steve sent you. They'll take great care of you.

Red Hook Village, with several bars (including the famous Duffy's Love Shack), numerous restaurants, and the ferry to St. John, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda and Tortola is less than 1/2 mile away. Red Hook also has a drug store, ATM, and several retail shops and boutiques.

There is a very good restaurant, Sapphire Grill, about 75 steps from our door. There food is excellent and you can't beat the location. There are also several great spots to eat in nearby Red Hook and throughout the island. . We list several or our favorites, along with directions, in our exclusive 16 page visitors' guide that we update annually. You will get that with your booking. Of course, like we said, you can always barbeque on our grill or use our full kitchen.

For music lovers there are several great acts and venues at Latitude 18, Iggies and other places. Sapphire Grill is fast becoming the place to be, particularly on Sunday nights with a great jazz combo.

We love Kiribe and love sharing it with our own family and friends and invite you to enjoy our Caribbean home. We a proud of our place and encourage you to look carefully at the great reviews we have earned. So, whether you want to sample all of what the East end of St. Thomas and other islands have to offer or just relax with family and friends Kiribe is the best deal on the Island. Book today - you won't regret it.
