Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay at Sapphire Beach was excellent. lt was in a great location to the ferry for St John. Not too far to Coki Beach and Meghans Bay. I was a bit disappointed that there was no laundry in unit and no where to hang towels to dry since there was no laundry in unit. I would have liked to have like a vacuum to pick up all the sand as well. Overall it was a great vacation and a great place to stay.

Clean, Convenient, Minutes from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Very nice unit in a great location, just a short easy 5-minute walk to the beautiful Sapphire Beach, and a very short drive down into the town of Red Hook which offers groceries, shops, SCUBA diving charters, and a variety of restaurants. The unit was clean, and the owners were very accommodating and friendly to rent from. They answered questions prior to our stay and were always prompt and pleasant with responses. The unit has AC, a fridge, oven, balcony overlooking the marina, and enough dishes and utensils for our family of 4. Separate bedroom and two futons provided plenty of space for sleeping for our family.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this condo. It's in a perfect location to enjoy the island. You really must rent a car though. Otherwise you will waste so much time waiting on safaris or taxis. We spent every evening in Red Hook. Only a 2 minute drive home. The pool is very close and it's perfect to cool off in. Close to Coki Beach, Magen's Bay and Secret Harbour, which are my favorite beaches. Easy to jump on ferry to St John. Stocked with all the necessary supplies.

Clean, quiet and close to great beaches

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very nice. Close to Red Hook, Coki Beach (great dive shop here), and Magen's Bay. Furnishings were comfortable. Felt like home away from home. Got a chance to talk to the owner. Though I was in a panicked state with a late arrival and got lost, she was able to help me figure things out.

Recommendations for future travelers

. When the owners send the welcome email, make sure you find it. Mine was in the spam folder and made for an anxious arrival.

. Make sure you have a paper map of the island (you cannot buy one

there). Cell service is at best 2G (so google maps didn't always

work for me) and street markings are not what you are used to. (I

realize there are only two or three roads on the island, but it can get

confusing with the twists and turns).

. You don't really need a car. At times I was glad to have one, at others, I didn't really need it. The paradise buses run frequently. As long as you can plan your outings, it should work.

. Food in general is a little more expensive, but Cruzan Bay rum is cheaper, so it balances out. :)

. 'Attractions' tend to close early (4 pm), so go early then relax on the beach afterwards.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with Homeaway and it was great. Amy and Howard's apartment is perfect for some beach time, snorkeling and visit Red Hook. Everything was as described and the information "package" they left us was very detailed and accurate. I highly recommend them. We surely come back.
