Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, Full Bath, Queen bed

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.

Amazing place, amazing views, amazing time!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of this rental. The owner was more then helpful with recommendations or anything else we could need. The location is perfect, 2 minutes from Red Hook and on the beach, just minutes from everything else, cabs were typically waiting up by the entrance. Everything was as advertised, beautiful views, pool and beach just a few steps away. Place is very clean and well stocked. Only bad part of the trip was when we had to leave. We will 100% be going back next year.

We have been coming here since 2005 nothing has changed literally

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in buildings d&e on the ground level since 2005 in many of the units I can't think of a place on st Thomas where you can walk a few yards and be in the water and on top of that have breathtaking view this unit d103 is very modern inside and one of the nicest well presented units that we have stayed in the only issue I have with this unit is there isn't much breeze when not on the beach we spend all of our time on the porch the first couple of visits to this property we did all of the touristy stuff now the only time we leave the property is to go to the grocery

The parking lot and the buildings by the pool are still horrible but they always have been the owners of the condos have no control of that we can stay most anywhere we want but always come back to sapphire

WHY because it is outstanding and one the most gorgeous views in the islands!!!!!!!!

Fantastic setting. Breathtaking. Resort is "tired."

  • 3 of 5

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!

Great location and nice unit

  • 5 of 5

I am a fellow owner at Sapphire and rented this unit for my mother. It was a perfect place for her to stay and all was perfect. The location by the pool is amazing and we enjoyed some nice times on the porch with the amazing view. Will not hesitate renting again in the future.

Thank you

Beautiful Ocean View Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Sadly, we had to leave this quaint condo to head back to the winter snow! We stayed the week after Christmas and enjoyed every minute of the condo, the resort, and the community. Whenever I had questions, Chris, the condo owner was quick to reply. The patio is perfect as you sit and watch the palm trees sway while watching the ocean waves. We spent a lot of time by the pool and at the beach. The marina was a few steps away and it is where we were able to book a full-day charted trip to visit other islands. It was incredible fun, and my husband and I will cherish the memories! Perfect location for a couple looking to get away and enjoy the sunshine. Everyone we met was wonderful and we miss it already~

Highly Recommended Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

Simply put, this was an excellent property. Quiet, clean and comfortable. Well equipped - from kitchen gear to snorkeling gear. Owner was extremely responsive to my requests. Great proximity to Redhook. That meant access to several good restaurants (watering holes/restaurants). Shower easily accommodated 2 people.

If you're there for 5 or more days, take the car to St. John for the day. We got on line at 6:45 for the 7:30 ferry, the first of the morning. We missed the first ferry by 3 cars, but the 2nd ferry was there in 15 minutes. 7:30 ferry was actually 8:30, so glad i got there early as the line was looong when we left.. While you wait, go to the ferry terminal and have a breakfast unlike what you're used to. Pate and a beer. If all you want to do is go to St. John for Trunk Bay. or other snorkeling areas - take a taxi on St. John and skip taking the car over. We went to several beaches and the old sugar cane plantation. Had a weird lunch at Skinny Legs, food was OK but the overall experience was a little strange. As with the morning ferry, you will have a wait until they can wedge you on a ferry for the ride back to Redhook.

Owner has a car for rent - RENT IT. We took a taxi to and from the airport, but had a car the remaining time. Whether it was just a short ride to Redhook for food/drink or supplies, having the car was a good thing. And the cost was cheaper than established companies, all without the hassle. Made our vacation EASY!

Only con? Only 2 beach towels. There was a laundry facility, but I didn't want to waste time with laundry. So, unless you decide to swim with your towel, or fall in with a towel around your waste, you can live with it.

Must see? Brewers Bay, just past the University to snorkel/dive with the turtles. Saw so many munching on seagrass in 15 feet of water., just 25-35 yards off-shore. 30+ in 45-50 minutes.

Overall, great value for the buck. Referred by my brother. He's been here twice. Have a feeling I'll be back.
