"Condo was exceptionally clean, well maintained and handy to beach. Drawbacks making this good but not exceptional were the poorly regulated AC that was essentially all "on" or "off" making it either too cold in the middle of the night or to hot if turned off. The master bedroom pillows were old and worn out - bring your own! The kingsize mattress was acceptable but not as good as what we were used to. If these three items were improved it would have been excellent."Guest: Bob Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 22, 2014View listing
"We were looking for a relaxing vacation with a great view. Papaya Ridge meet all those requirements and more. The Villa is near the end of a quiet road which provided privacy and tranquility. The unit is set up exactly as shown on their web site. We spend hours on the deck each day soaking up the sun and looking at the passing boats, turtles, fish and distant islands. We rented a car for the week (a car is a must because of the Villa location) and explored St Thomas and went snorkeling at many of the beaches. We even took the car ferry over to St Johns for some lunch and snorkeling at Salt Pond Bay (Best of the trip). The many close restaurants, to include Latitude 18, gave us the casual "island" meals we desired. The owners were awesome and answered all our questions before and after we arrived to include the best places to eat and shop. We are already talking about going back."Guest: Anne B.

"This condo is amazing for the price! We just arrived a day ago and it has been nothing but fabulous! The food at iggies was great, sitting by the ocean at night listening music what a vacation! But a rental car is a must we got ours for $56 a day beats the $80 we spent yesterday just to get here and go to the grocery store! Food is expensive at the grocery store as well so I would say eat at home and eat out It would probably come out the same seeing you won't eat a big bulk of food if your here for a week. Cindy was helpful providing all the information to make a trip amazing and took time to call and give me all the info when booking the rental!The view is amazing it's pretty quiet and we are really enjoying it! We will most definitely will return!!!"Guest: Shawna S. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 18, 2014View listing
"My wife and I stayed at Eamon's vacation rental in Sapphire Village for one week in mid August, 2014. Sapphire Village is a resort, located just minutes from Red Hook and Charlotte Amalie. The location is absolutely superb whether you want to relax at the resort which features two pools, a bar/grill pub style restaurant, a marina, and a beach, all within minutes walking distance. If you don't want to stay on the resort, I recommend you rent a vehicle; you can get anywhere on the island within an hour drive, allowing you to visit all the beautiful beaches. One thing to note is that the resort is built on a giant hill, so if you go to the beach, be prepared to hike back up that hill! The rental itself was perfect for the two of us. Unlike some properties listed on VRBO, Eamon's place is *exactly* as pictured. The unit was very clean when we arrived and had no bugs. The unit includes a full (small) kitchen, so cooking meals is very easy to do, and much cheaper than eating out several times a day. However, the grocery stores (Cost-U-Less, Walgreens, K-Mart, and Food Center) are all about 15 minutes away, so you'll have to plan accordingly. The rental is also well stocked with items for activities, including a small library of books (including a *very* useful Frommer's guide to the Virgin Islands), and snorkel gear. We had brought our own masks and snorkels, but being able to borrow fins for free was a very generous and unexpected perk! While visiting, we were able to visit Magens Bay, Hull Bay, Sapphire Beach, Coki Beach, Lindquist Bay, Turtle Cove (Buck Island) and Bolongo Bay. Of those, our favorite local snorkel destination was Coki Beach, the water was beautiful and the reefs were plentiful; however, Lindquist, Sapphire, Hull, and Turtle Cove were very close runners up. Many beaches offer water sport rentals (snorkel sets, kayaks, stand-up-paddle board, etc.), but Bolongo Bay was the only location that rented small sailboats (Hobie Catamarans). I rated this rental with 5 stars because it truly met or exceeded all our expectations, and Eamon (and Alice, the property manager) were both very helpful. We would recommend this rental to anyone considering visiting the island."Guest: William L. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 16, 2014View listing
