The unit was nice and the location being near the Ferry in Red Hook for day trips to St Johns Island was great. Great views. Nice water. Unit owner was pleasant and easy to work with. On the down side, we had to send a reminder to get our mid-week unit cleaning service and the balcony which was very nice in general had a wood lattice above the door full of mold growth and the above unit sweep a bunch on sand down on our balcony.

Owner response: David and Mary, Thank you for your stay in e-208. I will address the issue with my neighbor above to be more respectful of guest below during the cleaning process. This is a consideration that should always be in affect. The cleaning was as scheduled for a 10 day stay and was immediate the day of request. I also included a gift credit for any inconvenience that the scheduling might have had. I hope you enjoyed your stay and will come again. Maureen
Excellent condo, well located with beautiful view

My husband and I rented this condo from 12/21/13 through 1/3/14. The property is very clean, nicely decorated, and has a nicely appointed kitchen with full fridge, microwave, and cooktop (no oven or dishwasher, common in the islands). The owner Maureen was very helpful prior to our trip and got right back to us about a question we had while we were there. Also, there is a local property manager (Kathleen) who is very nice and helpful and the round trip taxi service from the airport takes the stress out of arrival and departure. The owner also includes beach chairs, snorkeling gear, and floats from the on-site beach shop, which is a very nice amenity. Highly recommended! We stayed at Sapphire Beach back in 2003. The property has since been converted from a full-service resort to a privately-owned condo development. We were a little concerned about this, but it was nothing to worry about. There is a cart that provides breakfast, lunch, and drinks right on the beach; that was sufficient to meet our needs. The only big disappointment is that the on-site dive shop (DiveIn) was not operational for SCUBA diving during our stay. Luckily we had a car so we were able to drive to Coki Beach and Red Hook and dive with local operators there. Not quite as convenient as walking out our condo and getting on the boat, but not too bad. I would definitely recommend renting a car for at least part of your stay. Sapphire Beach is only a half mile or so from Red Hook and there are taxis and a local bus available if you don't want to drive, but having a car dramatically expands your options on where you can go and when.

Great USVI vacation
Great USVI vacation
My wife and I stayed in this wonderful condo the week of 3/2/13-3/9/13. The condo made for a great base camp for our vacation as it was close to the restaurants of Red Hook. We did the trip half the week with a car and half without. The only issue without a car is that the taxis will charge at least $8 to and back from Red Hook. There is a food truck on property which we tried and it was actually pretty good as far as BBQ goes. The highlights were our day trip to St. John via the Red Hook ferry and our boat trip to the BVI via Bad Kitty. Also the snorkeling right in front of your condo is hard to surpass. We swam within two feet of a sea turtle and also saw multiple sting rays including an eagle spotted ray. If we ever choose to return to St. Thomas I would not hesitate to rent this unit again. The owner Maureen has thought of everything and it was a pleasure to rent from her.

The Holidays in Paradise
We stayed at Bella Blue Breeze over the holidays and truly enjoyed it. The condo was furnished very nicely and had an extremely comfortable bed. We spent most of our time at the condo on the patio, looking out at the beautiful view. The patio is not furnished like the current photos show, it is better. We loved the comfortable chairs on the patio. The only thing that we had a problem with was the poor internet service (which is important to us), it would cut in and out constantly. Not sure if this was a normal problem or not. We loved being on the second floor where you did not have to worry about closing curtains for privacy. Can not tell you about TV service as it was never turned on, which is a sign that we were have a good time. The condo was well furnished with towels, and dishes. There is no oven, but that never mattered to us. We have decided that we would come back to St. Thomas, and that our favorite area of the island is Sapphire beach / Red Hook and that we would stay at Bella Blue Breeze again. Loved the Place, Thanks!

beautiful condo, absolutely breathtaking views of Pillsbury Sound, St. John, and the BVI's...couldn't have asked for anything more. Interior nicely decorated, in great condition, comfy bed & furnishings...kitchen appliances worked well...nice TV, but never turned it on once (the sign of a true vacation)!!! Nice beach right out in front (not the best for swimming, a lot of coral), but great for snorkeling, and also quieter than the better swimming beach a short walk away. Pool only a short walk away if that's your preference. Highly recommended and hope to return soon!!!

The Bella Blue Breeze condo is the ideal location for a stay in St. Thomas. Everywhere you turn, the condo is beautifully decorated in the highest quality to make vacationers feel at home. The view from the deck is nothing short of breathtaking. We spent most of our time on the deck gazing out at the island views and enjoying the luxurious furniture and lighting that Maureen provided. Not to mention, the gorgeous beach and pool at Sapphire are just a short walk away. We snorkeled right outside our door and the experience was amazing! A big thanks to Maureen who had great restaurant suggestions and of course, the Breakaway Charters' British Virgin Islands boat excursion! This day trip shows travelers the best of the BVIs and is adventurous, but relaxing! We will definitely return to Bella Blue Breeze, and I recommend it to everyone! Awesome trip!

We celebrated our 25th anniversary at Bella Blue Breeze and we couldn't have had a more perfect week! This condo is exceptional! It is everything the pictures depict and more - one of the nicest properties at Sapphire, if not THE nicest. We loved the location on a more private stretch of beach and we also loved the close proximity to Red Hook for restaurants and the ferry to St. John. HIGHLY recommend this beautiful condo!

My husband and I just returned for a wonderful stay at E208! The pictures do not do the condo or it's surrounding accommodations credit! We desperately needed a relaxing vacation and this was just the place to do it. We read books, ate at local Red Hook spots, and enjoyed a few day trips while we were there. Our favorite trip was to Jost Van Dyke (pronounced Yost Van Dyke). Foxy's Bar and the Soggy Dollar Bar were truly unique. We have only been home a few days and we already miss it like it was years ago. The owner provides detailed 'things to do and see' and her property manager made the trip easy and stress-free! We highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a quite get-away with options for fun and adventure.

Maureen, Thank you so much for your hospitality and for providing such a beautiful place for our stay! The pictures online are amazing, but we were ecstatic to actually walk into the condo and see that everything had been taken care of. The decorations are gorgeous and the touches that you have added to the condo were awesome - the frozen glasses in the freezer, the CD player with iPod hookup, the big beach towels and beach bag, the comfy bed...everything made us feel right at home. The beach and pool were outstanding. The thing that topped everything off was of course, the balcony. What a view! We'd end nearly every night sitting out there - breeze in our hair, listening to the waves and sipping a cool drink out of those frozen glasses! Such a great experience, and a very relaxing, fun vacation. We also can't say enough about Sam. He picked us up at the airport with his big friendly smile and we just adored him! He made sure we felt right at home, and of course gave us the scoop on where to go and what to do on the island. He was just amazing, and we are so happy to have met him, and we miss him already! We took your advice and Sam's as well on eateries...went to Molly Molones a few times (their BBC's are great!), The Cellar, Oceana (we LOVED it!!), went to Caribbean Saloon to watch some football, to mention a few. The day trip we took to St. John was outstanding. We rented a Jeep and just puttered around the island. Ate at Island Blues - this is a must - what great views of Coral Bay! We loved Hawksnest Bay, too - and you were right...no tourists, just a couple locals and us....we loved it! We saw it on the way in, and after we'd explored the island we came back to Hawksnest, swam and snorkeled a bit and then fell asleep in the sand until we had to head back to the ferry. To sum it up, we could not have asked for a better vacation. The condo was great, Sam was great, the pool/views/beaches were just lovely. I think we've told everyone we know about E208 at Sapphire so expect some new reservation referrals from the Whites! Thanks so much! Beau and Jennifer White

This was our first trip to St.Thomas and we could have not found a better place to stay for our vacation.Starting with a complimentary pick-up from the airport to walking into a wonderfully decorated condo set the stage for a great vacation. The snorkeling was great right of the beach in front of the condo with more tropical fish and coral reef then all the other places we visited on the island.There were never more then two or three people on the sandy beach in front of the condo which felt like that we had our own private beach. Our daughter, son in law and granddaughter rented the corner condo next to us which combined balconies and provided a breathtaking view of the Marina next door to the right,St. John in the middle and the BV islands to the left.We would certainly stay there again the next time we visit St.Thomas.

Can I just say WOW? We spent our honeymoon in this condo and can not even imagine a better location. The place is beautiful, and the property managers Sam & Mona were amazing. We were a little concerned about the property because of reviews we had read online, and we admit, the property itself is so-so... but the E-208 is a four star place to to stay. We can't say enough about how beautifully decorated and comfortable this place was.. and the location close to Red Hook could not be beat (especially since we liked to island hop.. Can't wait to come back!!

This condo, resort, and beach were FANTASTIC! My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there and it was even BETTER than advertised! Beautiful, clean, modern condo, phenomenal view, beautiful beach with many accommodations, and the location was perfect for catching the ferry to St. John (a MUST) or eating at Red Hook. Condo owner is great and a wealth of information, and Sam the property manager was so kind and helpful. We would definitely rent this unit again!

FABULOUS!! Just back from a weeks stay and it was truly one of the best & most relaxing vacations we've had.The condo is without a doubt the nicest at Sapphire-just as depicted in the photo's with top of the line furnishings and the VIEWS! It really does take your breath away.Every morning was spent sipping coffee on the private 2nd floor lanai overlooking the ocean and in the evening you could enjoy a glass of wine looking out over the water & lights of St. John. Sapphire resort does not have much in the way of amenities but the beach is one of the best in St. Thomas.We snorkeled almost every day and the clarity and variety of fish was excellent.Lounge chairs are provided as is 2hrs of snorkel gear per day. Loved the East End location just minutes from the Red Hook Ferry to St. John and the amazing north shore beaches. Many wonderful restaurants in the area.Maureen the owner was very responsive and has thought of everything.Stereo with ipod connection,wonderful towels & bedding,frozen glasses,indoor & outdoor furniture as comfortable as it is beautiful,etc.etc. Don't hesitate to book this condo-you won't be disappointed!!

I highly recommend this condo for your vacation! The minute you open the door to the condo you are overwhelmed by the beauty inside the condo and the bright blue water views. It takes a minute or two to take it all in. After you spend a day or two at the condo, you then notice and appreciate all the attention to the details; the professional decor, the beach towels, the comfortable mattress, the frozen glasses in the freezer, high-quality linens, the radio with great CDs to play, etc, etc. The water activities are conveniently located outside your front door; snorkeling, swimming at the pool, parasailing, day sail to spend the day at the different islands or just relaxing with a beach chair on the beach in front of the condo. This condo sets a very high standard for a vacation rental. You work hard all year waiting to take those precious days of vacation. You deserve to give yourself the best! This condo does not disappoint.

We will return to the beautiful and fully stocked condo. My husband and I did not want to leave - the views were stunning, the condo was very clean, the furnishings were top of the line and comfortable. The bed almost came home with me. Maureen was so helpful during the booking process and with all her suggestions - she was right on. She suggested many restaurants for us - our favorites were Molly Malones, Agave Terrace, and Off the Hook. I have recommended this vacation spot to at least 5 friends already and more to come for sure! While visiting St. Thomas - you have to go to Magen's Bay and to Trunk Bay on St. John - those are 'must do's'. Thank you Maureen for the beautiful place to stay - we will be back!

Just returned from a stay in this wonderful condo. I read many reviews and I find people have different views of "good" or"great". My favorite stay is a Marriott or better.In St.Thomas I wanted something bigger than a motel room. E208 exceeded my expectations-it is perfect -not just ocean view -but ocean front.Details matter and not one thing was missing. The Sapphire Resort is not four or five star- but the condo is -and you can't go wrong staying there.

We had an absolutely amazing holiday in St Thomas, and this wonderful condo played a huge part in that. It is beautifully and extensively decorated with top quality furnishings and equipment. Numerous ornaments and pictures contribute to the 'Beach' theme that the owner has captured brilliantly. Not to mention that the bed is the comfiest we'd ever slept in by far! The view from the condo is spectacular, you can never tire of looking out over the azure water towards the charming island of St John, which is itself only a short ferry ride from nearby Red Hook. Sapphire is a lovely beach with excellent snorkelling and there is a great pool and bar. The owner, Maureen was a pleasure to deal with, answering all my queries quickly, thoroughly and in a friendly fashion. Sam was also extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and took care of everything we needed. I would certainly echo previous comments about the British Virgin Islands day trip - a fantastic experience and a definite must in my opinion. Overall we would highly recommend this condo, from what we saw it is by far the best accommodation at Sapphire, there really is no contest with the standard ones. What a find - we can't wait to go back!

if you're looking for a place on Sapphire beach, stop looking. You can't go wrong w/ this condo. The location is great - very close to Red Hook w/ all the shops and restaurants. The view is amazing - you can see St John and the BVIs. The beach is amazing and the snorkeling right on the beach out front is very very good! Maureen was very responsive to all my questions and everything she told me was right on. Sam was great - it was a real bonus having him pick us up at the airport because he gave us all sorts of tips as to what we might enjoy and he was 100% right - day trip to St John, trip to Jost Van Dyke, White Bay and the Soggy Dollar bar.... we had a great time. The bed was super comfortable, the towels were plush and soft, the frozen glasses in the freezer, the place had everything you need. Just take your bathing suits, sandals and sun screen and enjoy!

We stayed in E208 and the description doesn't describe it enough..everything is top notch. Lived on the deck Christmas week. Views were spectacular.The furnishings are to die for. Kitchen was well equipped and even frozen glassware in the freezer. You will love staying here. Wish my house was decorated same. The yacht marina is right out the door and could watch the parasailing and wave runners from the balcony. Hated to leave. Definitely a must to go. Was a wonderful week. Took a boat trip on the New Horizon..great trip to Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke. Would recommend to anybody. (don't do the units at the hotel...they don't come close in comparison).
