Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina condo description

'Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy a ticket to St Thomas, which is kind of the same thing'

This condo is a great year-round rental. Summertime is great because my unit directly faces the incoming breeze. Open my sliding doors and the front door and a beautiful tropical breeze blows through all day. In the winter the temperature in St Thomas averages a daily high of 86 degrees. The view from the condo is a constant reminder that winter is nowhere to be found.

I took all of the photographs on this page. They are all from a typical week in a beautiful St Thomas vacation. The first photograph and the last 5 photos are all from the deck of my beach condo.

This property has a wonderful view and is in the best location at Sapphire Beach. It has great access to the wonders that are the US Virgin Islands. The condo is completely remodeled and looks and feels great.

WIFI is included!

You will be gently serenaded to sleep every night with the sound of the ocean waves just 20 feet from the deck.

There is a 50 inch HighDef television, cable and Bluray/DVD player.

Full size kitchen with microwave and convection oven.

King size bed with summer down comforter and oversized pillows.

Featured at no additional charge is a beautiful sunrise every morning that you can watch without getting out of bed.

                            The view and proximity to the ocean doesn't get much better than this impeccable condo. My husband and I had a wonderful stay and were delighted that we chose this unit (thanks Peggy and Mark!). We were also thrilled with the general location....close to Red Hook restaurants and ferry....and after exploring both St Thomas and St John we concluded that Sapphire Beach is the nicest of all!

                            My wife and I visited the islands for the first time the last week of February 2014 (we are in our mid 30’s and take a beach vacation without the kids every winter). We had an amazing experience with the condo, fantastic weather and beautiful sites. I’ll start with the condo. It is exactly as described and pictured. Mark was incredible to work with too (very nice and accommodating guy). Our favorite things about the condo were the view, sounds of the waves, the kitchen and the bed (we got great sleep in the condo!). We enjoyed many sunrises from the deck. The condo is also stocked with coolers and beach gear. It truly was a home away from home for us and we wouldn’t hesitate to go back if we chose to stay in St. Thomas again. Mark also provided us with some helpful tips of what to do and how to get around. We like to stay busy and found there were many things to do. We enjoyed the beautiful Sapphire Beach where the condo is located. We also visited St. John by ferry 2 days. St. John is amazing! We enjoyed several beautiful beaches (our favorites were Hawk’s Nest, Trunk Bay, Cinnamon and Salt Pond). Woody’s is a must for their happy hour (3-6 pm with $1 beers). We were also fortunate enough travel a majority of the island by jeep one day. What an experience! Do this if you can. It is such a clean and beautiful island. We also took a charter to BVI through Breakaway (the Marina is a short 1 minute walk from the condo). Amazing and worth every single penny! We visited the Bathes, had a beautiful lunch in Marina Kay, snorkeled off Diamond Reef and played at Soggy Dollar. Again, this is a must! We spent many nights in Redhook. Duffy’s Love Shack, Island Time Pizza and the Tap Brewery (best burgers!) were our favorites. And you absolutely have to go to Off the Grid. It’s a food truck at the top of the road from the condo. They have the best BBQ’d food and the guys are so nice. Everyone we talked to raved and loved this place. Overall we had an incredible experience and would recommend renting from Mark. If we don’t try staying in St John next time we visit the islands, this will be the first place on our list.

                            I spent 11 nights at Mark and Peggy 's condo with my 3 children (ages 8, 15, and 18). We had a wonderful time. The location and view was beautiful and convenient. We rented a car the first 3 days and then walked to Red Hook, used the safari shuttle, as well as a taxi for our activities. Peggy and Mark provided me with timely responses to my questions prior to and during our trip. The condo was well equipped for our many needs (chairs, cooking supplies, snorkel gear, beach towels, etc.). There was one king bed and a queen air mattress that we used for our sleeping arrangements. The air mattress was fine, but not obviously as desirable as the king bed. The pool and beach area were clean and convenient; there were a variety of children and a family oriented atmosphere. We felt safe and secure in our location (2nd floor condo was ideal as well for security). The condo was clean and neat, the large flat screen tv was a plus for our relaxing evenings, and we had all of the supplies we needed. We made an initial trip to the grocery store and found that the Kmart was an affordable resource for snacks and light meal items. The pool was open, but a large area around the pool was blocked off for future construction purposes (did not pose a problem for us). Activities included ferry to Saint John with sight seeing and half the day at Trunk Bay; day trip to Coki Beach where there was great snorkeling (dog bones for sale there which were used to attract tropical fish); zip lining with great mountain views (St. Thomas); Magen's Bay for fun waves and snorkeling; shopping at Mountain Top; many days just hanging out on Sapphire Beach and/or at the pool. We had a great time and I would highly recommend this condo and location on St. Thomas.

                            We stayed the week before Christmas and weren't sure how busy it would be. It was really nice and the beach never really seemed crowded, even when ships were in. The cruise ship people stayed mostly in front of the water sports shop. The little grill on site had pretty decent food for an easy lunch option. The condo itself was very nicely furnished. We did quite a lot of cooking and found that we had most of what was needed. The only thing about the condo that I can recall as needing attention was the ceiling fan in the bathroom. It was quite loud and sounds like it needs replacing. If we weren't showering we usually opted to use the other lights in the bathroom so as not to run the ceiling fan. All in all this is a really nice place to stay in St. Thomas and this condo in particular is definitely worth serious consideration. Oh, and if you don't have a car, it is a reasonable distance to walk to Red Hook, but it's quite a scary walk as there is NO shoulder in some places with blind turns and fast cars. Be careful!!

                            Couldn't have asked for a better place, or a better beach! Thank you, Mark & Peggy for sharing your island get-away. It was exactly as promised - neat and clean, with everything you'd need, and with the most fantastic view. Sunrises are spectacular, the sounds of the ocean lull you to sleep, and the breeze keeps you cool and comfortable. Thank you for being so helpful while we were there. It was everything we hoped it would be, and can't wait to come back for another winter escape. What we loved: sunrises from the deck, the beach, pool on site, snorkeling right off the beach, beautiful colors of the water, listening to the waves, waving to family (all over the world) on the beach-cam on Christmas day, the fully stocked kitchen (especially the blender!!), the views, being down the hill from "Off The Grid" food truck, Duffy's in Red Hook, day at Magen's Bay, finding roadside vendors selling local veggies, Walgreens and Plaza Extra in Anna's Retreat (godsend), the palm tree in front of the condo, the smell of the ocean, did I mention the sunrises?, conch fritters everywhere, and PAINKILLERS!!!

                            We had a great stay at Sapphire Beach! The unit is just as it looks in the pictures. Yes, the view is that good! While we enjoyed snorkeling and relaxing on the main beach, we spent most of our time on the beach right in front of the E Building, as it too had a great view and was less crowded than the main beach. Plenty of chairs were available and we easily made friends with some of our neighbors for the week! Red Hook restaurants and bars did not disappoint. Definitely check out Island Time Pub (we went twice!!) and Duffy's Love Shack. We also had a nice evening at the Sapphire Bar and Grille, watching football and listening to live music. Definitely pop over to St. John if you have a chance. The ferry ride is very short and the beaches are worth the trip. Cinnamon Bay was definitely our favorite, about a 20 minute drive from Cruz Bay. We were able to rent a car from Budget at Sapphire Beach but wish we had rented one for the entire trip. We took taxis and the safari bus and both were fine but having the car was just a little more convenient. We had a great, relaxing time. Definitely check this place out!

                            The condo was wonderful and clean, with an amazing view of St. John to wake up to. It's right on the beach and there is snorkle gear, coolers and chairs at the unit for you to use and take on day trips. It's also located next to the Sapphire Bay Marina where you can pick up an amazing day trip through BVI with Break A Way (recommended by the owners, and was one of the highlights of our trip). Also super close to Red Hook if you want to take the ferries to the other islands or grab a bite to eat. The unit has a great kitchen - a full size fridge, stove top, toaster, coffee machine, blender, etc. making it easy to cook meals at home. The owners were VERY responsive, and I never felt out of touch. We wouldn't have picked a different place to stay. The owners were very easy to work with, the rate for this unit was extremely reasonable and the space was clean with a beautiful view. Don't think you can find a better view on the island! Highly recommend.

                            To our benefit it was the slow season so not crowded. It picks up in November so it is livelier then. As it was We had a peaceful, relaxing stay. The condo was beautiful with everything you need while you are there. The sofa is more comfortable to sleep on than the airbed and the Queen bed is very comfortable.The view from the condo is amazing!!!! The sunrise is glorious and begs you to wake up and come out to play! the water is divine and the beach itself is outstandingly beautiful. The taxis are right there to take you anywhere you want to go and Red Hook is just 5 minutes away. The marina is next door and lovely and this is definitely a place to recommend to friends. Stop at a store on your way in or stop at the small shack Banana Cabana before 4pm to pick up some beer and wine so that when you arrive you can sit and sip and take in the ocean view for awhile before you get busy playing in paradise. The owner is easy to reach; the condo is as described in ads; it was very clean; I recommend Red Hook restaurants (Fish Tails, Pesce; XO! All of them!) Super nice place!

                            Mark is so easy to work with, he goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable! Everything is just as he describes. This was our 4th trip to Sapphire Beach so it was like coming back home again. The view is breathtaking, we loved waking up to the sunrise over St. John and listening to the waves. Being so close to Red Hook is a plus for dinner, shopping and the Ferry to St. John. The weather was awesome, we didn't want to leave. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be renting from Mark again real soon!

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: My name is Mark Miner. I love St Thomas and Sapphire Beach. It is very important to me that you have a wonderful time at Sapphire Beach and my condo. I will do everything I can to make sure you have a wonderful and relaxing vacation. I am constantly available to answer questions and help in any way. -Mark-

                          Why the Owner Chose Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina:
                          My Condo at Sapphire Beach was a carefully thought out choice of beauty and convenience. E202 enjoys a beautiful breeze and magnificent views year round. The morning sunrise over St John is a breathtaking daily event. Full moon rise from the deck is a monthly spectacle worth planning your visit to St Thomas around.
