Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

As beautiful as Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina are, the use of the word resort would tend to indicate something else. The amenities that you may find at all-inclusive are not available at Sapphire. This is a no-nonsense, laid back, beachfront condo with the waters edge just feet away. There are no tennis courts or spas. There is 1 small, beachy restaurant on the other end of Sapphire for drinks and some pub food. Each condo is individually owned and managed by that person. Sapphire does have the most amazing snorkeling and marine life. The sunrises over St. John with unobstructed views are breathtaking. It is a peaceful, zen-like experience. If this sounds good to you then this is your vacation spot! Sapphire Beach resort and marina are situated on the eastern end of the island. Just minutes to the town Red Hook where you can find fine dining, shopping, a grocery store, sports bar, pizza, and live music. For the adventurous type there are many attractions including Blackbeard's Castle, sky tram, underwater submarine tour, and a hands-on aquarium. There are many boat excursions and ferries to the BVI and other islands for a day hike. So much to do and see or just feel the breeze and sun in this awesome island oasis.

Keywords: direct waterfront unit with newly renovated kitchen and bath.

Why lee passios chose Estate Smith Bay

My brother and his family have been coming to Sapphire Beach for many years and convinced us to join him this year. I could barely contain myself when I saw the view and put my feet in the water(as angel fish swam around me). My 6 year old went snorkeling and saw sea turtles and sting rays in their natural habitat. My 12 year old met some new friends; they played volleyball and swam together joining in an immediate friendship. I knew I found paradise and a place to call my own.

What makes this condo unique

Great restaurants and shopping nearby. Local attractions including an aquarium with hands-on exhibits. Safe environment for families with children. Many weddings have been accommodated on the 'point' overlooking the coral reef.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In response to this 1 bad review after 3 years of renting, my belief is that this couple are miserable to begin with. They stayed 2 hours. They never gave Sapphire a chance, and experienced its TRUE beauty. When they arrived there were keys in the door and the cleaning lady was next store. If they had bothered to bring a copy of their contract which contains all the pertinent information, they would have know this. I never pretended to be the Ritz- Carlton. This is a quiet waterfront condo that has its own security staff. The water is pristine with a thriving reef in front. Sapphire is a very special place. I am not sure what these renters standards are?! I am down there every 4 to 6 months. I bring quality towels, linens, knives etc. Just read all my past reviews and you will see how awesome Sapphire really is. Sincerely, Lee the owner

Gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It was everything we wanted and then some! The ocean is literally steps away off the back porch! We enjoyed just relaxing and laying out by the water. If we wanted a quick bite, the Sapphire beach bar had awesome burgers, which was just a quick walk down the beach from the condo. The room was clean, comfortable, and kitchen was equipped with all the necessities. Lee was so helpful in booking our stay and gave us great recommendations! My husband and I will definitely be back for our anniversary!

A Special Place...

  • 5 of 5

Took my two boys here for a week and couldn't have ask for more!!! Steps from the beach, the pool, the marina next store with amazing views of St. Johns every moment just outside the door. Forget the hotel chains and truly enjoy a home away from home with all the amenities..

Quaint, quiet and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for me, my hubby and 2 teenage girls. Very open layout right on the water. Beach area directly in front isn’t ideal for swimming but the main beach and pool area are fabulous. This spot has a great view and is so peaceful. Owner stocked lots of basics so we didn’t have to buy things like coffee filters. Very thoughtful! 1bedroom suite with pull out couch and privacy panels (but not super private between rooms if you’re looking for that ;). Very clean and stocked with all the kitchen items you need to cook with. Very nice bathroom with modern shower - great pressure and plenty of hot water. We will be back. It’s an amazing spot with an amazing view!

Amazing neer warterfront Condo, nice place Sapphir

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the design and location of the condo. Despite Horican Irma who hit in September 2017, all infrastructure, transport, wifi, power ect worked perfectly. There is the most beautiful view of St. John, Cruz Bay from the balcony. Out in the water, 7 meters from the balcony, you snorkel on the reef among Caribbean fish and stingrays. On the swimming pool wall lies Leguanes (Iguana) - and look at us - Amazing. it was a pleasure to rent this Condo.

Beautiful walk-out unit on lovely Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5

The unit was tastefully decorated, very organized and had all the items that one would need (kitchen accessories, beach towels). The outdoor space is also nice with a table for eating as well as two lounge chairs. You literally walk out of the door and take 5 steps and there is the ocean. The sound of the waves is so soothing. If you are an ocean lover, there is no place in closer proximity.

Sapphire is back!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week here and finalized all little things that needed to be repaired before I rent it out. The power is on! The internet is on! The A/C is on. New couch cushions are on. I have slashed prices in order to get people down here. The restaurants are ready hit the “rent it” button and come down. Lee
