Sapphire Beach is the finest beach on St Thomas, and this unit is a professionally renovated condo on the first floor. The glass wall faces the beach and ocean - you walk out the wall to wall patio doors onto the beach sand. The ocean is 100 feet away, the unit is next to the pool for family or sunbathing convenience, and the view out of the full wall glass doors is tropical paradise. Lite lunch and restaurant facilities are available on site and within walking distance. Red Hook is one mile away - a very short car or taxi ride to a town which is active both day and night for restaurants, pubs, shopping, music, and if you want to travel further, Red Hook has the ferry service to other islands. And by the way, if you need a car - and we highly recommend getting one - we have one to rent.

Stayed here for 7 days for our honeymoon. It was perfect! Loved sitting on the patio in the morning w/ coffee and being visited by the resident Iguana and small lizards. Having the ocean view right outside our door and the coral reef a short walk away was great! We went snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding right there! Having the car Chris provided for a small rental fee was nice for quick trips to Redhook for meals and groceries. We walked to Redhook once -NOT SAFE!! Roads are very narrow with no side walks. We took the ferry over to St John one day for lunch and a nice hike to Honeymoon beach. Didn't take the car but you can if you want to explore more of the island. The resort is rundown and in need of some updating but we had everything we needed and enjoyed every minute. The condo had everything we could want. Loved the big shower! Bed was awesome! Highly recommend this place!
Fantastic setting. Breathtaking. Resort is "tired."
If someone were to bring this resort back up to its original glory, it would be one of the top destinations in the world. Nevertheless, the incredible beauty of the setting more than compensates. Had a lovely time!
St thomas saphire beach vacation
Awesome the best place loved it but would of liked room service and a softer bed would definitely stay again
Fantastic vacation spot on St. Thomas!
We just spent 10 fabulous days on Sapphire Beach and really enjoyed this unit. The location was better than we imagined, just steps from the pool and the beach, and although it was on the ground level we still felt that our privacy was not compromised. The unit was very clean with an updated bath. The updated kitchen was well-stocked with many extras such as spices and nice quality dishes and cookware. The owner, Peter, was very easy to work with and responded quickly to any concern or questions we may have had. Kathleen, the manager, is a pleasure to work with as well!
This location is so convenient, just a short distance from the ferry, shopping, and a nice variety of restaurants. Our view of St. John and other islands in the distance presented a beautiful backdrop for relaxation, and the snorkeling was really great right from our own beach! The beach and pool never felt crowded. The marina was close by for day sailing trips and fishing and power boat charters.
We definitely rate this vacation 9 out of 10 and would return to this unit and this location without hesitation!
What a wonderful place to stay in St. Thomas! My boyfriend and I couldn't have asked for a better place. First, the condo is perfect. Peter sets up a beautiful condo that is clean and well equipped. Every morning, we had breakfast on the patio looking out to the ocean. The kitchen is all new with all the appliances you need to cook during your stay. Also, the cleaning ladies come in every day and refresh your towels which is great. Although Sapphire resort was a bit quiet, the beach was amazing. We walked down toward the snorkle gear and it was great and had the perfect amount of people on it (not too crowded not to quite).
Peter arranges a great deal where you get free lounge chairs, snorkel gear and floats for the water (which is amazing). At first I was worried there was no food places near the beach for during the day; however I was wrongly mistaken. Two different restaurants have constant waiters on the beach taking food and drink orders, which I loved.
The condo is in a great location. Very close to the ferry and center of town. Duffy's love shack is a must especially on Wednesdays- Ladies drink free! Also, I highly recommend taking the ferry to St Johns. During our stay we also took the Bad Kittie boat which is full day adventure with an open bar going to 4 different British virgin islands. it was AMAZING!!! You get to go to Virgin Gorda, the Bathes, and Jose Van Dyke which is a great little island. It really is a great way to do some island hopping!
If you are looking for restaurants outside of Red Hook, we went to a great one at the Marriott called Havana Blue overlooking the beach.
Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better trip!! Peter really sets up a great atmosphere for vacationers. The condo is clean, nicely decorated and in a safe location. Also, Peter does a great job in leaving a lot of information/magazines in order for vacationers to gain info. on whats the best things to do during your stay. Not to mention- Sam, who picks you up from the airport is EXTREMELY Helpful and nice! He is the best!
Definitely stay here if you want to have a relaxing yet fun vacation in your own private condo right on the beach!!
Thanks again Pete!
Best on St. Thomas
My husband and I just got back from St. thomas..celebrated 15th anniv. there....let me say that we drove the entire island and found NO BETTER PLACE TO STAY than on Sapphire Beach..and Pete's condo is exactly like the pictures show!!....there's something to be said about WALKING OUT ONTO THE BEACH every day!! snorkeling is fantastic here, views are the best on the island, the beach is clean and the Banana Cabana will take care of your drink orders and food while you enjoy the sun..you never have to move!....Sam took care of us and was a pleasure to meet....this really is NO HASSLE vacationing!! promptly picked us up at airport, had the keys to Pete's car, gave us pointers on where to go and what to do, and then gave us a ride back to airport when it was time to leave.....We THOROUGHLY enjoyed Pete's suggested place to hang out at Latitude 18......went there 4 times....food was FANTASTIC, locals and wait staff a true joy to meet.....local bands lots of fun!!....also highly recommend BVI tour on Bad Kitty....highlight of our trip that day!!..this truly is the quieter and more scenic side of the island, so DON'T HESITATE to book your trip here!! Red Hook is a minutes drive away with great bars, restaurants and some shopping...the ferry is RIGHT THERE so you are close to any island hopping you wish to do...>St. John is fabulous and we spent some time over there as well...fabulous beaches and Cruz Bay has places not to be missed! Quiet Mon Pub with bartender Kenny!!!.....We can't say enough about our trip...would go again in a heartbeat!! Thanks Pete and Sam for making it so memorable!!!!
This tastefully updated condo looks across the Caribbean to St John and neighboring islands and sits just steps from the waters edge.
