Property description

Our sweet Sapphire Village studio, with its almost 180* view of the Caribbean Sea, was COMPLETELY RENOVATED, stem to stern, in the fall of 2010. PLUS updates: chairs, beach chairs, kitchen ware, window treatments in 2015. We replaced it all - ceilings, ceiling fans, furniture, cabinets, bathroom, kitchen, linens, you name it! - it's ALL NEW, fresh, squeaky clean and modern. We personally chose the furnishings at Hickory Furniture Mart in NC and had it all shipped down. Now we're SHIP SHAPE and ready for you!

This is where you really want to be!
Make sure you know the difference between Sapphire Village Condominiums and Sapphire Beach Resort. Our breezy studio is on top of the hill in the Barbados building, between two pools, right above the NEW Sapphire Grill at 6700 Sapphire Village Condos (on Smith Bay Road, Red Hook), not in the Resort.

CHECK THE CALENDAR - we keep it current. AND... if you don't see the dates that you want to come, please check www.vrbo.com/477709, another one of our condos.

{Please note that some of our information, such as 'Why We Chose Sapphire Village,' and 'Unique Benefits of this Studio' may not fully open on your iPad or mobile device.}

Welcome! Come, refresh yourself on gorgeous St Thomas!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We married seven years ago and live in Sapphire Village part time. When 'on island' we attend Calvary Baptist Church in Charlotte Amalie or Community Baptist, across from Sugar Bay Resort. We like to rise early to enjoy the beach, dine very well, and always marvel at the beautiful view!

Why the Owner Chose Sapphire Village:
We bought this studio to share with family and friends. We love meeting the locals and soaking up the lovely Caribbean accent! Everyone is so friendly and ready to help you find your way around. John likes to do his walking and swimming at dawn and Cathryn loves to meet friends and shop in Red Hook. We both enjoy photography excursions to St John, Tortola and Virgin Gorda. Bring your passport for travels to the British Virgin Islands! We know you'll love Sapphire Village as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
We have one of the VERY BEST views on all of St Thomas, evidenced by the fact that island tour drivers always stop near the Sapphire Village entrance to let oogling visitors take a few million pictures! Sapphire Village Condominiums is a secure, gated community with two pools maintained daily, plus easy access to beaches, shopping, and restaurants. Hop on a safari (an open-air taxi) for a dollar ride to Red Hook or Tutu Park Mall for all your provisions. Two dollars will buy your hilly ride to Charlotte Amalie - the heart of town on colorful St Thomas - gateway to all the tourist attractions dangled before you. Sapphire Marina offers day sailing, jet-skiing, deep-sea fishing and sunset tours. Waiters in beach attire will happily deliver lunch and drinks to you right on the beach, from Banana Cabana or Sapphire Grill! Your studio balcony faces northeast, so it's always draped with pleasing indirect sunlight.. perfect for morning coffees, watching seagulls and sailboats glide gracefully over clear blue waters, and stunning Caribbean sunsets. Quite often you can hear the wind whistling low through sailboat masts in the marina. This is the most attractive studio in all of Sapphire Village: uncluttered, clean, fresh.. 'easy on the eyes.' You might not want to leave!
