Best Beach Experience ever!
The place was as advertised and much more! It is less than 10 steps to the beach from the rear door and you could not ask for a better location. The kitchen has everything you want to cook and the grill is perfect! The beach side cafe, near the kayak rental, is great for a cold beverage and bite to eat. The condo is close to many restaurants. At the top of the hill try VI Slice or go into Red Hook which is less than a 5 minute drive for more restaurant and bar options.
The views from the rear door/patio are fantastic and the snorkeling is some of the most amazing I have ever seen and we have been to a lot of islands in the Caribbean. I would recommend this condo and will definitely return to this place. The host was very responsive and helpful.
Great location. Loved the Beach service.
It was a nice unit, great location.
good place to stay
in the description of this property, the troyers were very honest and accurate in their description. the unit had every pot, pan glass and dish needed to make your own dinners, along with an electric b-b-q grill out side. the unit is clean and well appointed. since it is a ground floor unit, it is has easy access to the beach and pool, this is definately a plus. there is now a beach bar down on the beach, not far from the unit, good food and good drinks reasonably priced. i only have two complaints, one was the very poor tv reception in the unit, and the second was the poor sealing wooden front door that let in many a mosquito. so if you rent this place, take plenty of bug repellant, cutter worked the best for us, and enjoy your time there.
We always enjoy when guest enjoy their stay on the beach. The TV is a satellite TV with the reception provided by the Condo Association. Like any satellite reception it can be disrupted by several variables beyond anyone's control. The island does not "worry" much how well doors and window seal the weather from the outside, it is pretty much the same temperature year round day and night. Insects are a "problem" in the tropics which we let people know about when they inquire about our condo. It is a small price to pay to visit such a beautiful island!
The property was good.
The beach was rocky and you couldn't swim right in front of the condo. You had to walk in front of the buildings next door. It wasn't a long walk, but still it wasn't 10 feet away from the door. You have to rent a car and the cab from the Red Hook ferry dock cost three of s $20 to go one mile! There is no walking on the road! Too narrow and windy and no sidewalks.
The Caribbean water is about 30-40' from the rear door and is usually where people snorkel......some people do swim there, but if you are looking for a sandy bottom you have to walk about 80-100' down the beach where lounge are available at no cost to guests. The swimming pool is about 20-30' from the rear of the patio. If you plan to go several places renting a car is the best choice. The taxi's charge a standard rate from different places to your destination which is same as stateside. We have seen people walking the one mile from Red Hook, but have never done it ourselves.....the road is as described and we always rent a car. We had heard from the guest while they were there 3 days and they said they were having a great time.
We rented this condo for our first visit to the USVI. We were budget minded and not expecting nor wanting the resort/hotel atmosphere. The condo was exactly as we expected and we enjoyed a fabulous vacation! We enjoyed making our own breakfast and eating on the patio every morning as well as being so close to the ocean. We snorkeled at Sapphire Beach every day and after enjoying several beaches, it was one of the best. Steve was very responsive to all of my questions/requests. I would rent this condo again. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the bathroom could use a minor update and more towels/blankets would be good. That said, we could have asked from them and received them during our stay so it's not really a negative. I'm so happy, our family created some amazing memories on this trip! Thanks a million Steve!
We really enjoy when guests have a great time! We provide the same amount of towels to all guest (same as a hotel) and have not heard there were not enough. There are two blankets and throws in the closet, which has usually been sufficient when you are in 75-80 degree weather. Since we are not on island we are always available if we are contacted to try and meet guests needs.
We put I new shower tile this past year....not sure what needs to be updated but will contact guest......the salt air is not good on materials in the Caribbean.
Breathtaking view....relax ....reconnect...
Wow! What a beautiful view we had from this property. This was our first vacation with a VRBO and it was a good one; all of our questions were answered in a timely manner,all the pictures on the site were accurate (although I don't believe pictures can do this view justice), the rooms and patio were clean and comfortable and since we had a kitchen we were able to enjoy several meals right on the beach! The only bad thing was the pool area (bar-snack shack) was under construction and or run down. One of our favorite things to do is snorkel and on the clear days it was great right there on Sapphire Beach!
Sapphire Beach is located on the prestigious East End of St. Thomas with exciting island night life and restaurants close by in Red Hook. Rated as one of the top views and beach on the Island of St. Thomas. Several other beaches and shopping within minutes away by Taxi, ferry, or boat excursions. Sure to be one of the best Caribbean vacations ever!
