Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina condo description

A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF COMFORT, TRANQUILITY AND ACTIVITIES!

When you dream of a tropical paradise, do you dream of a place where a white sand beach stretches out in front of you? Or of a world where the water is a kaleidoscope of turquoise and aquamarine hues?

If that’s your ideal vacation, then come enjoy our home while vacationing in Paradise! This spectacular 3rd and 4th floor condominium is located in the B-building directly on Sapphire beach, with breathtaking 180° views from each floor of the ocean and the neighboring islands (St John and British Virgin Islands). To us, this is the “Good Life” or “Bonne Vie”!

Just imagine...sitting back on one of the two private balconies enjoying your morning coffee (or afternoon cocktails) in a lush tropical setting listening to the calming sounds of the ocean lapping at the sand! As you sit looking out, you contemplate a dip in the water or a leisurely stroll down to the pristine beach, feeling the sugary white sand between your toes and admiring the incredible blue Caribbean water. All of this is located right in front of our home…we must warn you, you’ll have to pinch yourself or you'll think you've gone to heaven!

Our Condo…
We are proud to share our private paradise – Villa Bonne Vie - with you! Capture the splendor of the ocean within arms reach, as your worries and cares fade away. Our newly remodeled condo is tastefully set up as our home-away-from-home and comes complete for anyone to walk in and be more than comfortable.

The condo boasts floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that open onto two private balconies with awesome views of Sapphire Beach and the Caribbean. The condo is fully air-conditioned (separate controls on each floor) and completely furnished with cookware, luxury bed and bath linens, beach towels, and a cooler for your trips to other beaches.

On the main floor there is a living room with a Queen sleeper-sofa, dining area, large flat screen TV, cable, stereo w/iPod dock, renovated full bathroom, and a brand new kitchen that has everything to make life easy – solid granite counter with breakfast bar, new wood cabinets with plenty of storage, microwave/convection oven, smooth cook-top, refrigerator with ice-maker, toaster oven, blender, coffee-maker, and espresso/cappuccino machine.

The top floor is the master bedroom suite with a second renovated full bathroom and a gorgeous ocean view to enjoy right from our comfortable King-size bed! If more sleeping space is needed, there is a Queen sleeper-sofa in the master suite sitting area. There is another large flat screen TV and cable upstairs.

To make sure you’re connected to the outside world (if you want;), we offer Broadband Wi-Fi throughout the condo, a large flat screen TV with cable on each floor, and an AT&T cell phone for local and US calls.

We can arrange for pre-ordered grocery delivery or a personal chef – just let us know what you need.

Amenities at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina…
You'll have no shortage of options as you plan your day. Go for a swim, nap on the sand, snorkel right off the beach, volleyball, parasailing, rent a Wave Runner, go for a PADI dive, snorkeling tour, or a deep sea fishing charter from the Sapphire Marina just steps away...the day is yours to relax and enjoy as you wish in the warm Caribbean sun...and that’s just at Sapphire Beach!!!

As part of your package, you'll have full use of the owner's chaise lounges on the beach and we provide outside games, floats and noodles, and snorkeling equipment.

If you feel like something other than the beach, Sapphire also offers a multi-level cascading freshwater pool on the edge of the Caribbean Sea.

Currently at Sapphire, the “Banana Cabana” offers food, soda and freezy drinks (located between B and C buildings) and the Sapphire Grill offers lunch and dinner (a short stroll up the hill past the Marina and F building). Both places also provide beach service, so you don’t even need to get out of your chair:). If you’re really tired after the day, the Grill offers room service and Senor Pizza delivers to Sapphire.

Saint Thomas…
We are blessed with one of the most pleasant climates in the world, which is kept comfortable year round by gentle trade winds – the average daytime summer temperatures are around 85° and 80° during winter months. The great thing is that Americans don’t need a passport – all of this beauty is part of the United States.

There are numerous options of things to see and do on St. Thomas and the surrounding islands, including the many beaches (the real gems of the Caribbean), Mahogany Run golf course with the “Devil’s Triangle”, shopping in Charlotte Amalie (each visitor can take up to $1,600 worth of duty-free imports), the restaurants, and excursions out of Sapphire Marina and Red Hook. Once you book your stay, we will send you our “Villa Bonne Vie Guest Guidebook” that provides information on our condo and suggestions on the island.

Whether you want to sample all of the Islands or just relax with family and friends, our condo offers it all. Relax and enjoy the comfort and ambiance of Villa Bonne Vie that is guaranteed to provide a good life and make you wish you never had to leave!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      Why the Owner Chose Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina:
                      After traveling to numerous Caribbean islands, my husband and I found our jewel! Even in the best hotels, we could never get as close to the ocean as we have at our Sapphire condo. We invite you to enjoy the splendor of Sapphire Beach from Villa Bonne Vie - if it's beauty you want...you won't be disappointed.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Please note - the REAL attraction at Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina is the ocean! As many have mentioned, the restaurants on-site are closed (except for the Banana Cabana during the day). This is a condominium complex, as such Sapphire is more low-key than a resort and each unit is individually owned and maintained. If you want bars and parties, this IS NOT the place for you. If you want Paradise, Villa Bonne Vie IS the place for you!!!
