About: My wife and I would love to spend six or seven months a year here if we could bring our dog. We live west of Boston, MA and although we love the changing seasons, life at our condo at Sapphire is very special for us.
I am not always very good at expressing to my wife how very special she is and how much I love her. I am also not very romantic, but somehow I came up with a very special moment for my wife while we were at Sapphire a few years ago
My brother-in-law and sister-in-law (my wife's maid of honor at our wedding) , were staying with us at the condo at the same time as our fortieth wedding anniversary. I secretly arranged for a surprise vow renewal at the point at Sapphire. I worked with a local wedding coordinator to help with the arrangements and I secretly flew my kids in and hid them out until the night of our anniversary. I lured everyone to the point at sunset and sprung the surprise. She was completely surprised. When she realized what was going on and saw the kids the tears started. It was a very special evening!
A funny moment occurred before the actual ceremony. I got down on one knee and proposed, again. and again, and again. .....She refused to answer me! She claims she was confused and trying to comprehend what was happening, but I have serious doubts. I think she was mulling alternatives but I guess I will never know for sure. She eventually said yes.
That is just one reason that Sapphire is so meaningful for us. We hope you can create your own memories on your vacation.
Why Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina: We had visited many Caribbean islands before we came to Sapphire Beach. Just about the minute we walked out on the beach we knew we had found our beach. At that time, the early 80's, we stayed nearby as the resort had not been built. We saw some tentative plans and made a reservation for our unit. The construction was not completed until 1988, which is when we took title.
St. Thomas is easy to get to from the East coast with direct flights of four hours or less from Boston, NY, and Miami.
It is an American territory so money, electricity, and language require no special arrangements. Probably the major difference from the states are that they drive on the left.
While nothing is guaranteed you usually have warm sunny days, with light breezes on every visit
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Our family has sun lovers and shade sitters. Sapphire Beach has an abundance of both sunny and shady beach areas.
The swimming beach is literally steps from our door, so going back to the condo for lunch,drinks, bathroom, etc is a piece of cake.
Many choose to spend the day on the beach enjoying the beautiful view of St. John. Jost Van Dyke, Tortolla, and the many nearby cays. You can count on watching the Pelicans diving from the sky to catch fish, and walk the half mile beach now and then.
There is a nice reef for snorkeling on the right side of the beach. It is a shallow reef so is very safe and yet has many different varieties of fish of all sizes and colors.
For the more adventuresome there is an area of seagrass out deeper that usually has turtles, rays, and, squid.
There is a dive shop on the beach with all sorts of gear and toys. There are floats, snorkeling equipment, wind surfers, kayaks, scuba, scuba lessons, and both shore and boat dives.
Sapphire has an on site marina and there are many tour boats of all types in the marina that go to St. John, Jost Van Dyke, and the Baths at Virgin Gorda. There are several fishing boats in the marina as well.
Be sure to ask about my special discounts on any New Horizon boat trips or sunset cruises.
