Property description

Why fight the crowds and pay top season prices and risk "iffy" weather patterns when instead you can enjoy off season prices in sub tropical splendor?
June, July & August bookings are eligible to receive $100 or even more off on stays of at least 6 nights.
This corner marina front walk-in level condo was the 'builder's unit' meaning it was retained by the builder developer as his own due to the location. I've always figured the builder as a pretty good judge. Dominica building features the shortest distance (approx 1100 feet) to the beach with the least vertical climb (25 feet +/-)
Close to beach, office, pool, restaurant, lending library, outdoor shower, mail room, marina services and laundry. Close to everything but quiet.
Private and free in-condo high speed wireless network. I-pod dock and Bluetooth stereo speakers, flat screen Hi-def TV.
End unit is especially nice because nobody will be disturbing you by walking by your door. End unit porches also have a side window for more light and air flow.

ALL NEW KITCHEN AND TILE IN LIVING ROOM FOR THE 2014-15 SEASON.

This spacious, tastefully furnished one bedroom end unit condominium is located overlooking a quiet marina with stunning down-island views of St. John, the BVI and many other islands.

Watch the yachts come and go while lounging on your private balcony or take a short 1500 foot stroll to beautiful world-renowned Sapphire Beach. The air conditioned walk in level condo sleeps four with a king-size bed in the bedroom and a pullout queen in the living area. Nicely appointed kitchen and open dining area.

Sapphire village offers two pools, one just steps from your door alongside the Sapphire Bar & Grill, the on-site restaurant. The marina offers almost every Water Sport under the sun from BVI or sun set cruise to fishing, para-sailing. Dive shop is on the beach about 700 strides from your door. The dive boat leaves from the Marina below your private patio.

Red hook is less then a mile down the road with boutiques, numerous restaurants, a grocery store and the ferry to nearby St. John.

Summers are a great time to visit, crowds are light, the beaches are delightful and the weather is near perfect. Even in the heat of summer the V.I. has never recorded a temperature above 99 degrees. Give the V.I. a visit in the off season, you won't regret it.

We now also offer a newly remodeled marina front studio with many similar features just 75 feet away. Please contact us for details.
