Property description

The first thing you will notice are the spectacular views from our two balconies overlooking the beautiful Caribbean. Being just 20 yards from the ocean, you have the white sand at your feet and the music of the surf allowing for a most relaxing time in our villa while enjoying America’s Caribbean. Remember no passport is required for US citizens, unless you decide to jump over to the British Virgin Islands for a day of fun in the sun and water.

Our building is blessed with daily trade winds that keep you cool and enjoyable year round. It is seldom that you will turn on either of the AC units while enjoying our villa. The two beaches at Sapphire offer different types of swimming and snorkeling daily. The northern beach will provide great snorkeling for the beginners that would like to venture out and see the Rays or Turtles that feed in the grassy areas. The Windward (Eastern) beach will provide some great coral, fish and swimming.

Our unit, Villa Santa Cruz, has been updated with a new king bed, sleeper couch, furniture, carpets, WiFi, 2 TVs, cable and other conveniences that you would expect to find in any luxury hotel. If you need something, chances are we have it for you in the villa. Hair dryers, check. Beach towels, check. Beach chairs, check. Cooler, check. 2 snorkel sets, check. You get the idea.

Sapphire Beach is a low key and quite condominium property located on the east end of St. Thomas, USVI. We are blessed to be next to Sapphire Beach marina where you can book fishing trips with the Double Header boats and Chris or arrange any of the day trips to Josh Van Dyke or the other BVI islands. The complex is a gated community with security offered 24/7.

Villa Santa Cruz is perfect for 2 adults that are seeking a very special romantic getaway. The unit is a two story villa that provides a very casual atmosphere while also world class views from all decks and balconies. We live in this unit 5 to 7 months a year, so we expect the best just like you.

Airport pickup and drop-off service is available to and from our Villa and we can also help you plan any very special island moments that you may be dreaming of. We have a commitment to your satisfaction when you stay with us at Villa Santa Cruz, Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina, St. Thomas, VI. Try us and SEA why we are rated 5 Star by guests just like you!

Car: Recommended

You should find plenty to do when visiting Sapphire Beach and Saint Thomas, USVI. Swimming, snorkeling, diving, wind surfing, jet skiing, fishing, sailing, boat trips to other islands are just some of the outdoor pleasures offered here.

Then you can take a trip to Charlotte Amailie, the main town and cruise ship center for shopping or sightseeing. On the north side of the island you will find Magan's Bay, considered one of the finest beaches in the world by National Geographic and others.

Take a ferry over to Saint John island or even the British Virgin islands for that matter. Take a trip to coral world and enjoy underwater views of fish, coral and sharks.

Eating is fun and artful on the east end. Going to Redhook will afford you many wonderful eating establishments, including Fish Tales, Coco Blue and Duffy's Love Shack, plus others. The food is good, the atmosphere is fun and the views are fantastic.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We were married on the beach at Sapphire many years ago. Started coming to Sapphire Beach in 1981, over 33 years ago and have never regretted a day spent here. A very special place for us!

Why the Owner Chose Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina:
We have enjoyed many parts of the world and still feel the views and swimming at Sapphire Beach are as good, or better than anything we have experienced anywhere else in the world. The only exception would be our beautiful home on the Monterrey Bay, California.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Beach Front. Yes, this is as close as you can get to the ocean without being on a Cruise Ship in the Owner's Suite. Two great swimming beaches with plenty of coral and fish. Wonderful trade winds with cooling breezes and abundant beauty with each turn and direction.
