"My boyfriend and I found this place on a whim when we had to scramble to find a location after a trip to Belize fell through. We decided on this unit immediately after looking at the listing. We could not have asked for more. The pictures of the unit are very accurate, it is clean, modern, and comfortable. The location is on the far end of St. Thomas on the east end closest to St John. We did not rent a car, but getting around in taxis is easy and Red Hook is a 3 minute cab ride or a 10 minute walk. From Red Hook the Ferry to other islands is super easy and affordable. The condo complex (Sapphire Bay) is quite large but for the size is surprisingly quiet. This unit is on the ground floor and literally opens right to the bay and the water is right there. We were told by several other visitors that the complex was at one point in the late 80's quite the party destination. It has since quieted down which is exactly what we were looking for. It clearly has not been kept up well as a whole property - the restaurants and bars of the past are boarded up and closed. The large pool is still maintained for use, but it is nothing more than a pool with some random lounge chairs about. The beach for Sapphire guests is a pretty good size and the swimming is beautiful as is the snorkeling right in this bay. This unit was a perfect point for us to call home base and get around to other places and return for quiet and relaxation and almost a private beach experience every night. I recommend HIGHLY visiting St. John. It is by far a more tropical destination as most of the island is US National Park land. The Ferry ride is 10 minutes and 8.00 US per person in each direction. Red Hook restaurants are AWESOME (go to the Tap and Still for burgers and hand cut fries). The owner of this unit was was easy to reach and email with when we had a couple questions about getting on the WIFI and some random other items. For the price, this place is an absolute dream and we will likely return in the future. THANKS!"

"We stayed at the OK Villa for five days and the only issue was that our stay wasn’t long enough! When we arrived on the island in the middle of a rainstorm, Gail and Curlson met us in Red Hook and led us to the villa. Once we made it up the hill and into the house, they took their time to give us a tour and explain many of the things in the house, as well as to tell us about some of the restaurants that we should try. The layout of the villa allows someone to watch television in the living room without disturbing someone resting in the bedroom. Speaking of, the bed is amazingly comfortable! You’ll have to pry yourself out just to get out and enjoy the island.
The location was super convenient to the ferry terminal and to Red Hook in general. There are plenty of restaurants and a grocery store less than 5 minutes from the villa. Trips into Charlotte Amalie took about 20-25 minutes, and yes, you quickly get used to driving on the left side of the road. The drive up the hills to the villa takes some getting used to, but the view is definitely worth it.
Back to the villa, the closet is huge and well-stocked with plenty of towels. The kitchen is very modern and we enjoyed cooking in it. There are also several tables on the covered patio, so it was great to be able to cook our own breakfasts and dine al fresco. The private pool and spa were relaxing and added to an already awesome experience. If you don’t feel like going outside or happen to visit during the rainy season, a full cable channel lineup, DVD player, and excellent wi-fi are also present. Each morning, we were able to text Gail and ask questions without us feeling as though we were bothering her. Although she and Curlson were directly upstairs from us, we really did not see or hear them, and they respected our privacy. The villa is well-maintained and we cannot say enough about the view! A trip to St. Thomas in the future would definitely mean that we stay with Gail and Curlson again!"

"Our Condo at Crystal Cove was really great. Nice and clean. Very spacious and well furnished. Had plenty of kitchen supplies. Great location, easy access to beach. A walk up the driveway led to access for the Safari Buses. Easy access on the Safari to downtown shops and restaurants. Short ride to catch Ferry to St. John. They have a patio out back with chair and bar-b-que grill. Nice King size bed and two bathrooms. It was a great vacation, looking forward to going back next year."

"From the time we arrived at Kava 3403 until the day we left everything was perfect. The residence was just as Deb described it . We had myself and my husband , my son and daughter n law and my daughter and her boyfriend. We enjoyed the facilities the Ritz offered as well as several meals on site. The staff was amazing. We had our condo provisioned with a few items to start and the ventured out to the store during the week in our rental car. The propery is just beautiful . I would highly recommend it to anyone."
