About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Location! Location! Location! Sapphire Beach is simply the best place to stay on St. Thomas. Why drive to the beach when you can have it as your front yard? Sapphire is the best all-around beach on St. Thomas, offering white sand, shade and great snorkeling. Our unit is totally remodeled and waiting for you. Need side-by side units? Our neighbor has also updated; we will be glad to check availability.

St. Thomas - Everything You're Looking For: Duty Free Shopping
Beautiful Beaches and Mountain Views
Excursions to St. John and British Virgin Islands
Water Sports

Need a car or jeep for all or part of your stay? We highly recommend Zip Rentals. We've used them many times. They're happy to meet us at the airport or deliver the car right to Sapphire. Their prices are competitive and the service is great. Call Lisa @ 340.715.1501

The second largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Thomas spans 32 square miles of tropical paradise and lies off the coast of Puerto Rico. The island embraces the Atlantic Ocean on the North side and the Caribbean Sea on the South. It is located in the northwest corner of the US Virgin Islands. Its mountainous peaks rise to 1,550 feet above sea level, providing breathtaking views from almost every direction. Drake's Seat is particularly famous for its vistas. The capital of the Virgin Islands is Charlotte Amalie, a charming and gracious town named in 1692 for the Queen of Denmark. A natural deep water port, it has one of the most stunning harbors in the world. It is also known as a mecca for duty-free shopping in the Caribbean Islands. Our newly remodeled condo is located on beautiful Sapphire Beach which boasts a wide white sand beach and great snorkeling.

St. Thomas can be a quiet retreat or a destination for visitors who enjoy the bustle of duty-free Shopping, fine dining, and exciting nightlife. Sports and activities are abundant on St. Thomas. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the George and Tom Fazio-designed Mahogany Run course. St. Thomas is also well known for its world-class yachting and sport fishing. A number of dive shops serve the island and provide a safe, comfortable scuba experience for beginners or experienced divers. Advanced certification courses are available here, as well as complete instruction for beginners

Car: Recommended

Why Sapphire Beach? Because it's the best one, of course. We've been vacationing in St. Thomas for many years. When it was time to buy we knew where we wanted to be. We've completely remodeled and updated; we know you'll be comfortable here. White sands and good snorkeling, a beautiful view of St. John, convenience to Red Hook and ferries to surrounding islands, close to shopping and fine dining and yet in a secluded gated resort. We chose the second floor so we could leave the sliders open at night and enjoy the sounds of the surf and the island breeze. Leave your daily stresses behind. Our guests enjoy free use of wi-fi, beach chairs and snorkel equipment.

Other Activities: Coral World is a short drive away. This is an educational fun day enjoyed by all ages. Of course St. Thomas is known world wide for the duty free shopping in Charlotte Amalie.

Golf: Mahogany Run Golf Course is well known. A convenient drive from Sapphire.

Zip lining is now available nearby.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: We retired early as we'd much rather travel than go to an office each day. We are by no means wealthy and owning apiece of paradise doesn't come cheaply. Renting our condo when we can't be here helps us meet expenses and we know our guests will love it here. Many return year after year and become part of our extended Sapphire family.

Why Estate Smith Bay, Saint Thomas, USVI:
After visiting this beautiful island twice on a cruise we decided a longer stay was in order. After coming a few years for a one week stay we decided that wasn't enough time either. So, the search was on. We looked at properties all over the island and decided no place but Sapphire would do as a second home. We haven't regretted our decision for a moment. The beautiful white sand beach that greets us each morning, the great snorkeling and million dollar views make this a place we love coming home to again and again.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Sapphire Beach has it all: beautiful white sand, great snorkeling and million dollar views. We have Seagrape trees for those who crave the shade, a wide sand beach for those who want the sun. There's a marina on site with charter boats for day or sunset sails and power boats for fishing or going to other islands or snorkeling spots. Or rent a pocket yacht and go on your own. There's also para sailing and jet skis available.
