"We had the most amazing time staying at your condo, enjoying St. Thomas and all the activities, islands, and amenities located nearby! The condo was very clean,comfortable,and well stocked with everything we could have possibly needed or desired. I never like to travel with nail polish remover. The attractive island decor of the unit, with beautiful tropical design bedspread and shams(on a very comfortable bed of course) and new sofa made us feel relaxed and welcome when we arrived! We wished we could have taken the bedding home so we could still feel like we were in Saba! Those floor mats with the Sapphire Beach scene were something else I would have liked to have packed into my suitcase as well. I don't know where you find these things,Carole, but all the special touches reflect how much you love your place(and we do too). The view from your balcony, overlooking the islands and the marina, presented an ever changing scene that one could watch all day long. When there's a change in weather things, became even more interesting!! We loved being part of the Sapphire Village and beach community if only for 9 days. We met friendly people at the pool, beach, the marina...wherever we went who loved to share travel tips and stories. One afternoon I briefly talked to a shy gentleman who said he was here to "write". He could be someone famous! We met your delightful Victoria who keeps "things in order" and sang her praises too. I could write a few more paragraphs about our memorable time. You can bet we're already planning to return to your condo. To sum things up, we went to the BVIs on the Breakaway,took a St. Thomas island tour(Chicago and Chesterfield),did a St John island tour with Douglas and enjoyed the beaches and Cruz Bay restaurants 420 on Center,and Sea glass on the waterfront, ate at Off the Grid on the top of Sapphire Hill, ate at Secret Harbor, enjoyed a dinner and watching the Pats win at the Sapphire Grill(great bartender Matt), dined at Island Time in Redhook(Pizza heaven),took up lots of space at Sapphire Beach,shopped Redhook and Charlotte Amalie,bought fresh Yellowtail at our marina, used #50 sunscreen, sampled good drink and food at Banana Cabana(Sapphire Beach). The one mistake I made in booking our vacation, was I should have booked 2 weeks...one to be the "go everywhere do everything tourist", and one week to just relax! Thanks Carole, for being a gracious and attentive host. You made us feel like family!"
