Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Cathryn and I married seven years ago, residing in Asheville NC, where I have my business. We love our second home in Sapphire Village, where we stay as often as possible. When 'on island' we attend Calvary Baptist Church, rise early to enjoy the beach and pool, dine very well, and continuously marvel at the outrageous view.

Why the Owner Chose Sapphire Village:
We bought this Studio to share with family and friends. When 'on island,' we love meeting locals and soaking up the lovely Caribbean accent! Everyone is so friendly and ready to help you find your way around. I like to do my walking, jogging and swimming soon after 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. Meet your neighbors around the pool and at Sapphire Grill. We know you'll love Sapphire as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Outrageously beautiful view, quick access to Sapphire Beach, secure gated community with two pools maintained daily. We have on site condo property management, and a dedicated crew that maintains the Caribbean landscaping. Easy access to beaches, shopping and restaurants around the island. Hop on a Safari (an open-air taxi) at the entrance to the Village for a dollar ride to Red Hook, or Tutu Park Mall for all your provisions at KMart and Plaza Extra, new Walgreen's pharmacy grocery. Another grocery store is Food Mart less than a ten minute drive. Two dollars will buy your hilly ride to Charlotte Amalie - the heart of town on colorful St Thomas - gateway to all the tourist attractions dangles before you. Sapphire Marina offers day sailing (we can personally recommend the 'Northwind'), jet-skiing, deep-sea fishing and sunset tours. The dive shop on Sapphire Beach rents lounge chairs, or take the ones we provide, snorkel equipment and kayaks. Hamburgers, fries and drinks from Banana Cabana at the beach or from Sapphire Grill next to the pool! 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!
