Great Beach, Lovely Condo
Great Beach, Lovely Condo
My husband and I are still talking about our time at Sapphire Beach! The condo was wonderful..everything new, clean and quiet. Unit was well stocked with anything need for cooking. Each day we had Breakfast on the PRIVATE balcony, overlooking the beautiful beach. We were able to enjoy our daily local and national newspapers with our coffee because of the wifi. Spent many hours relaxing on the beach loungers ideally located under the natural shade of the mangrove trees. There are 2 beach areas, beautiful water and snorkeling on the reef with owner supplied equipment! There is a lovely pool, with many lounge chairs available. The beach and pool area were never crowded. The Banana Cabana had good lunch sandwiches and drinks. Within walking distant is a local restaurant / bar for lunch, dinner, drinks and music. We even walked up the hill to eat at the local food truck..yum! A short taxi ride away was Red Hook where we enjoyed dinner at good restaurants. Visiting St John is an quick ferry ride from Red Hook. The owner of this condo were wonderful, answered all our questions and were very accommodating with our schedule. The condo is exactly as advertised, quality all the way. The only problem.... We couldn't say longer!

We hope to be your vacation host next time you visit St. Thomas. Warm Regards, Dave & Lynn
Great stay at beautiful Sapphire Beach
Great stay at beautiful Sapphire Beach
We love Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina and are already plotting our return. It is paradise and if you crave beachfront views, the sound of crashing waves, and walkout convenience, I do not know of a better spot. The owners of this unit were wonderful to work with, and their local agent was very responsive. Read a sampling of all the positive reviews for this complex, and think of it as an efficiency condo rather than a resort, and you will be delighted! There are some longstanding issues that result in the Dive Shop being closed (and the adjacent building, where a nice beachfront restaurant belongs, looking instead like an abandoned building in Mexico), but the silver lining is that the hordes from the cruise ships coming to the island no longer taxi to this beach for the day. And the lack of amenities contributes to the very reasonable rates. (Probably 1/3 of the nearby Ritz Carlton starting rate, with twice as much room and right on the water.) From this unit, you look out on a very tranquil beach. The views are spectacular and the big decisions of the day revolve around leaving the balcony for the beach chairs owned by this unit and sitting right by the water. The best swimming is a few minutes walk down the beach. You can stand in the water wearing goggles, put your face in the water and see fish, or the condo owner will supply snorkeling equipment. In terms of food on site, there is a hamburger shack next to the building that serves drinks, a really good barbecue food truck at the top of the hill, cheap taxis and buses into Red Hook for nightlife, and everything you need to make basic meals right in the condo. Everything was just redone inside this unit. Low key and nice...not fancy, but clean and thoughtful and beachy. My hubby and I loved it. My parents and sister rented equally nice units in other buildings...do your homework and rent from an owner. Double check to make sure there will not be remodeling construction - they are halfway through re-doing the exteriors, building by building. This one is a winner.

Manager response: Julie, Lynn and I are delighted you and your husband had such a wonderful vacation at Sapphire Beach and acknowledged the great value over other commercial offerings on the island. It is truly a diamond in the rough. We are happy you two enjoyed the condo & all of its new furnishings. We are also so fortunate to have such a resourceful & knowledgable property manager, that insures that our guests have the best vacation possible. She is the Best! Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. We look forward to having you back next year when the outside of Building B is completly re-furbished this summer in 2014!
What a lovely getaway spot from start to finish! Starting with the glorious sunshine that welcomed our arrival, to the cooling breeze, lovely water with the most amazing colors, friendly locals and beautiful sunsets, EVERY night! And ending with an effortless trip back over the mountain (with spectacular views) to the airport. Now for everything in between, the condo is efficient, wonderfully clean with a fantastically comfortable KING bed, if one chooses to cook all kitchen needs are met easily. The terrace looks right onto the beach, and the beach is RIGHT there!!! It was wonderful to fall asleep to and wake up to the sounds of the ocean. The pool is lovely, and multi leveled which is great for young kids, the lounge chairs around the pool are plentiful, and the way it is designed you can have great privacy even poolside! There is a wonderful grocery store about 2 miles away, if you dont rent a car, which we didn't, there are taxis at the ready, we had a favorite driver who met our every need within 3 minutes!!! Car rental available either at the airport or on the grounds of Sapphire Beach. There is a great little restaurant/bar within walking distance, which we took advantage of on several occasions, which had the best ahi tuna ever! The staff there were so nice, and the music was so fun. There are tons of restaurants in town which offer a variety of foods. All within walking distance of eachother, although requiring a car to get to town, again only about 2 miles. Nevermind the fabulous snorkeling, the ferry to St. John and the dramically fantastic views right from the beach. During our stay a couple was married on the point, it was beautiful. As you can see my husband and I had a wonderful getaway to this paradise, the condo was delightful, TV's, all newly renovated, fresh and cheerful decor, don't pass this one up, it is truly a treasure!!

Manager response: Thank you Stephanie for your kind and thoughtful comments about our beach home, our beautiful complex and the nearby amenities. We are so happy you and Jim enjoyed your vacation in our little slice of paradise. We hope you'll come back and be our guests next year after our building is totally rennovated on the outside next summer. Then our unit and the building will essentially be new inside and out. However, you certainly can't change or renovate the beauty and ambiance that Mother Nature has created at Sapphire Beach. We're pleased it captured you like it did us last summer when we purchased our beach escape.
We enjoyed our two week stay at this great corner beachfront condo. To our surprise the complete furniture and appliances were new. Wifi was available. We did not have to leave this second floor corner balcony most of the time and enjoyed the large ocean view and the soft cool eastern breeze. This condo is centrally located on the Sapphire beach and we only had to walk a few yards to the water when we are ready to take a dip in the ocean. The owner is very friendly and answered all questions. Also a resident manager was available for advice. We are looking forward to going back to the same unit next year

Year Purchased: 2013
About: Having lived in Colorado for over 30 years, we set out to find a beach property that we would want to come back to year after year. Our search started 7 years ago (2007). We scheduled a trip in April, 2013 to St. Thomas/Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina booking one of the properties using Home Away. We walked onto the beach that was just 20 feet away from our outdoor sitting area. My husband said 'my love, I think we just found what we have been looking for'. We closed on this unit 1.5 months later. We returned over the 4th of July, donated all the furnishings that had come with the condo & started all over. Everything is brand new. We hope you enjoy our new beach home as much as we do! Our goal was to think of everything so you want for nothing as our guests.
Why Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina:
This is the most beautiful secluded beach we have ever seen in all of our travels. We wanted property in the US and it does not get any better than this. Walk a few steps from the condo & you can do some amazing snorkeling. There are two coral reefs. The sands are pure white.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Walking the beach morning & night, beautiful sunsets, afternoon rains, iguanas, crystal clear, warm water, beautiful fish, not crowded, 2-tier infinity pool that is framed on all sides by the ocean (see pictures). Take a day trip on one of the sailboats docked at the marina there on the property. St. John's is a quick 10 minute ferry ride.
