Dear Kerry & Kevin,



A couple of words I would use to describe our vacation here at Crystal Cove would be... beautiful, wonderful, relaxing, & fun-filled! Our overall experience was awesome and exactly what we were hoping for.



We have stayed in another unit in Crystal Cove before and the condo was nice and acceptable but when planning our next vacation to St Thomas we will make sure we stay in Unit B-5 again. Kerry & Kevin. you have not overlooked one detail. From the fresh towels, to the snorkeling gear, to the rum & cokes greeting you on the table for when you first arrive to the condo. Not one thoughtful detail has been forgotten!



As wonderful as our “home away from home” was, we did not spend a lot of time there because the outdoors were calling. Crystal Cove, Sapphire beach, is amazing and has everything for everyone to enjoy. For our party of five, we were never bored. We snorkeled, we suntanned, we sat in the shade of the Sea Grape trees & we watched the ducks waddle by. The iguanas were a sight to see. Some of us observing them from a greater distance than others, ..hahaha! And we drank and than drank some more! Most nights we took a short cab ride into Redhook and enjoyed the nightlife there. Other nights we took a 10 minute walk (a 15 minute walk if you have a drink in your hand) to Sapphire Bar and Grill, which was excellent.



There was a ton more things we could have done or seen, but we ended up doing exactly what we felt like. Overall our vacation was amazing and are already planning to come back to B-5 for a longer stay!



Thank you & Best wishes!

another great stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this condo and the owners are great to deal with. We just love the Sapphire Beach area and Crystal Cove Condos are exactly what me and my family look for. They are spacious so your family can spread out over some of the smaller studio condos nearby. You have 2 bath rooms with plenty hot water so getting everyone showered up and ready for dinner is fairly quick. The washer and dryer comes in handy when traveling light. The kitchen had everything you need, we typically ate breakfast and lunch at the condo and then headed out for dinner. Red Hook is just around the corner with plenty of dining options and there is Moe's Market in Red Hook for quick stops for groceries however a little further down Red Hook rd. you will find the Food Center which we have found to have more variety and better prices. We've been to St. Thomas many times and wouldn't hesitate to rent this condos again.

Awesome family condo on relaxing Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5

The location of Crystal Cove is absolutely great--a little walk to Sapphire beach which is clean and well tended, generally not overcrowded and the swimming and snorkeling were great. The grounds of the complex are beautiful with many types of flowers, trees and shrubs around a salt water pond. Lots of wildlife viewing: iguana, herons, pelicans, crabs, many kinds of fish and even a stingray! Beautiful sunrises over the palm trees on the East side of the cove while watching the pelicans dive for breakfast. The condo is great for a family--we had four and never felt overcrowded. Decor in whites and blues is pretty and "beachy". Having an extra bathroom is what sold us on booking this condo. The condo had pretty much everything we needed--we ate breakfasts and several lunches and a couple dinners in (visited the grocery in Red Hook multiple times). The location is perfect for day trips, dinners in Red Hook, and to get to the ferry we took to St. John for a day. Didn't swim in the pool but it looked nice, and the tennis courts were serviceable. There is a beach bar/cafe at the nearby Sapphire Beach resort, a very short walk and wait staff moseyed down with a menu and took our order and delivered. We rented a car so we could travel to the sights, but I guess the "Safari Bus" is cheap and easy to catch (BE CAREFUL driving or standing near the road). Security was great: gated complex, good locks and a safe in the unit. The neighborhood was quiet and the people friendly. The owners were great to work with. Norma was available if we needed anything, but we really didn't. Overall a great value. Thanks for a wonderful week!

paradise in St. Thomas

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year in a row to stay in this condo at Sapphire Beach. It is truly the best price and place to stay in St. Thomas! The owners are very helpful and quick to respond as is Norma, the house keeper. The property is exactly as described. There are five in our family and we have always had plenty of room. Having two bathrooms and a washer/dryer is fabulous. Snorkel gear and huge , fluffy beach towels are provided. Our family prefers a quiet, uncrowded atmosphere and that's exactly what you get in this condo. You can walk out the door and be in the beautiful, carribean water in seconds. There is a full kitchen for eating in, and a travel cooler for beach picnics which we used every day and for day trips to St. John. The property is literally a few minutes to Red Hook. It also has a large pool and security gate on the property. If you're looking for the best bargain in paradise...THIS IS IT!!!

Welcome to the Tropics!

  • 5 of 5

All we wanted was to swim in some beautiful blue water. We got that and so much more! The property was just as described on the website, spacious and clean. We loved having a full refrigerator and kitchen. The King bed seemed enormous and the pullout murphy beds were extremely comfortable. Kerry, Kim and Kevin were available to answer our questions as was Norma the house keeper. Norma supplied us with a crib, pac-n-play and a high chair to further accommodate our travels with an 8-month old baby. Sapphire Beach was stunning. We could have stayed there every day, but wanted to explore. Favorite excursions include: Coki Beach/Coral World, Magen's Bay, Red Hook and a trip to St. John's. Red Hook is extremely accessible with some great restaurants as well as a barge and ferry to St. John's. Restaurants to check out: Latitude 18 (live music, bring bug spray), Fish Tails (my absolute fav! for service and food), Tap & Still and Molly Mallone's (wifi and a great breakfast as well as dinner). Did I mention the beaches are incredible? We can't wait to go back. Thanks Kerry, Kim and Kevin for all your help!

Relaxing spring break

  • 5 of 5

We spent my daughter's spring break in St. Thomas. We had visited the island from a cruise ship but wanted to have more time to enjoy the beautiful beaches. This was my first time using VRBO. I found the unit via an internet search - finding a unit with walk to beach access, 2 baths, and three beds was not easy (I try to avoid pull outs). Everything went very smoothly. The unit was just as shown in the photos. Very easy short walk to the beautiful beach.

While we ate dinner in Red Hook most nights the grill, charcoal, and starter fluid made for a fun grill night. We selected the unit because of the 2 murphy beds. They were surprisingly comfortable - such a nice change from pull out couches. It was also appreciated that when opened there was still a way to walk past.

While the weather could have been better being so close to the beach let us enjoy it despite liquid sunshine. The in unit dryer came in handful the one time we stayed out and everything got soaked. Diane made sure that we had chairs in the shade and made us feel welcome.

The owners were very helpful. Answering my questions and providing detailed driving directions from the airport. The small touches (rum and coke on the table, beach towels, well appointed kitchen) were very much appreciated.

Casual Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great. Exactly what we needed for our week stay in St. Thomas. The beach was absolutely beautiful. Never very crowded. We rented a jeep for a week so it was a good base to,go out exploring. We went to a few of local beaches. This was was our favorite. The owners responded quickly to any questions we had. Place was clean and exactly as advertised. The rum and coke was a nice welcoming gift. Loved that it was close to red hook. We went there every evening for dinner and drinks.
