                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 1999

                                  About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with the ocean when we moved from Minnesota to Miami upon graduating from University. We now enjoy our life in North Carolina between the mountains and the beach. We first vacationed as a family in St. Thomas at the suggestion of our son, Eric, who is certified in deep sea diving, in the spring of 1999. It was so incredibly beautiful and enjoyable that we purchased a villa at the lovely Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina. I have since retired from teaching art and my husband has retired to Professor Emeritus status at Duke Medical Center here in Durham, NC. Eric now has a Healthcare Consultant business and is living in Atlanta, GA, enjoying direct flights to STT. Our other son, Sean, a manager at IBM in NC, has joined in this wonderful experience. We all make regular trips to Sapphire Beach together and with friends. Last year, we celebrated the holiday season and our anniversary there and watched the fireworks being set off at St. John on New Year's Eve from our balcony. It remains the best get-away ever!

                                  Why the Owner Chose Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina:
                                  St.Thomas is that rare place that we enjoy returning to again and again without ever running out of interesting and enjoyable things to do and see. Sapphire Beach is conveniently located for access to shopping, restaurants and other Islands. We have explored St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Tortola, Virgin Gorda plus the caves of Norman Island and love all of the Virgin Islands. We always are happy to return to the incredibly beautiful Sapphire Beach. It's a wonderful place to begin and end each day.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                                  We love our penthouse condo in E building for its spectacular view, ocean breezes, and quiet, calming environment. This spacious, well-designed, two-story condo affords us flexibility and comfort. There is no one else above or below the bedroom. One can sleep or work upstairs while another watches TV or makes an early morning pot of coffee. Building E is convenient to the marina, laundry facility, pool, coral reef, and restaurant.
