About Jerry Style
My name is Jerry Style. I am a tax and financial planner. Obviously, I work very hard during the winter. But, that is to your benefit, because when I am not enjoying my piece of paradise, YOU CAN!!! I live in New York, but get to Crystal Cove whenever I can. I love its relaxed atmosphere, the beach and especially the snorkling. I'm not much of a shopper, but I have purchased some beautiful jewelry there for my girlfriend at very reasonable prices. Shopping there is actually interesting, but don't tell my girlfriend that.
Jerry Style purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Jerry Style chose Estate Smith Bay
When the real estate broker took me to Crystal Cove, I could not believe my eyes!!! Never did I think that I would own a piece of paradise like this!!! But, as it worked out, I bought it, and someday, maybe 7 or eight years from now, I will retire here. In the mean time, I go whenever I can, and rent it out when I cannot make it there.
What makes this Condo unique
The great things about Crystal Cove are many: - First and foremost, Sapphire Beach is the perfect getaway where you can just relax amidst beautiful scenery at serene seaside beach. - It is the USA, and you don't even need a passport to get there. We of course use the US dollar. - It is the Caribbean, and the temperature here is remarkably consistant. The highs and the lows from the winter to the summer vary by only about 5 degrees. - There is a natural air conditioning at Crystal Cove, with a trade wind that constantly blows gently across your skin. It is the Caribbean, so rain is always in the forecast, but wait a few minutes, and the rain will be gone. - Our Unit is D-36. It is as close to the beach as you can get. However, since the pathways from the other units lead in differing directions, D-36 is one of the most secluded and private units in the complex. - The snorkling is among the best I done throughout the Caribbean. - There are many great restaurants in nearby Red Hook. - The best meals we have though are those we prepare and dine on our porch overlooking our magnificent beach with romantic music playing in the background. - The staff, both management, beach attendents and maintenance crew are all spectacular. - WE ARE NOW GREEN!!! The electricity is now solar powered!

We love staying at Crystal Cove - one of the most beautiful places in the Caribbean! We love that Jerry has some snorkels and fins available for people to borrow, as there is some nice snorkeling right off the beach. We'll be back!
Spacious condo , excellent location
We enjoyed a spacious , well kept condo at Sapphire Beach West , Crystal Cove. The furniture was comfy and king size bed a plus. The kitchen was well supplied with anything needed for fixing delicious meals and dining on the porch with views of the water. We made good use of the charcoal grill.
The location was excellent with only a few yards walking to the white, sandy beach. The beach attendant was most helpful setting up our chairs in the exact location we wanted on our private beach.
The internet worked great as did the Direct TV .
The owner , Jerry , was attentive to any personal request. He kept close contact with the manager, Norma , who was a delight to meet, and offered details to make our stay most enjoyable.
Beautiful! Stunning views! As close to the beach as you can get!
The condo had everything we could possibly need.
We will book again.
You couldn't ask for a better location!
It's a short walk from the condo to Sapphire Beach! We spent many sunrises and sunsets at the beach. It's a short drive to Red Hook area for local restaurants, coffee shop and more! Everyone in the complex was very friendly. A couple of nights the beach bar next door had live music and food. Snorkeling and a beautiful view of St John too! Can't wait to come back and enjoy the islands again!
Crystal Cove is our favorite location, and Sapphire beach is beautiful, but this unit is bare bones. I wouldn't recommend it for traveling with children. Cable and internet not working, half the stove doesn't work, 1 of 3 chairs for sitting and eating was out of commission, and the futon for sleeping is fine for small kids in terms of size, but it's on a patio that isn't actually part of the house, so I wouldn't have small children sleep out there. 1 adult and 3 small children were fine, as the kids fit on the couch. I can't complain about the trip, because a caribbean vacation is always great, but for 7 days as a family, this was tough. Hard to entertain kids on a rainy day, or early in the morning and late evening, before and after beach time. Luckily we were traveling with another family, and were able to hang out in their unit to eat, watch TV, and use our laptops for downtime.
I'm sorry to say this, but some people are impossible to please. EVERYONE knows that the islands just experienced not one but TWO category 5 hurricanes. The island was without power for months. Cable is still down almost everywhere and internet is spotty. ALL OF THIS WAS KNOWN by this guest prior to her arrival. It baffles me as to how people can be bored in paradise. Have we come so far as a society that we cannot exist without technology? Seems so, sorry to say.
Our place is beautiful, and you are supposed to come to St Thomas for the beautiful beaches, not for the TV of the internet!
Have you been searching for that perfect place to escape to where you can just relax and recharge? Well, you've found it!
Welcome to paradise, and the beautiful sunshine that gives you that gorgeous tan will also provide power for your comfort. That's right! Our condo is now solar powered! So, help the Caribbean stay as beautiful as she is by using the power of the sun that made her that way!
Sapphire Beach offers some of the best snorkeling in the US Virgin Islands. There are three separate coral reefs loaded with tropical fish and even octopus! The coral of many varieties abound, including brain coral, elk horn coral, pilar coral and much more. Centered between the coral reefs is a large grassy area where green sea turtles graze all day long, and you will see sting rays and even our favorite, the Spotted Eagle Ray.
There is no need to bring your own snorkle equipment. WE SUPPLY SNORKEL EQUIPMENT OF VARYING SIZES.
And all of this is just a few steps from the condo, a condo that is now GREEN!!!
