Hurricane Update - PLEASE READ!

-------------------------------------------------------

Miraculously, my studio survived both Hurricane Irma (Sept 6th) & Hurricane Maria (Sept 20th)! Unfortunately, the USVI's and BVI's got hit real hard. Currently, as of mid-October, there is no power to my unit, nor any units in Sapphire Village. If other owners tell you that they have power in their unit, they are misleading you! That means, no A/C, no fans, no hot water, etc. The island of St Thomas, USVI has only 20% power restored. Owners of Sapphire Village are hopeful that power will be restored by Christmas. Although my unit survived, guests should expect to hear plenty of construction-related noise during daytime hours, for several months, since many units that were damaged, need to be restored to Pre-Hurricane conditions.

Since there are many unknowns at this point, if you wish to discuss a reservation, I have blocked out dates up to December 29, 2017. I have unblocked dates starting December 30, 2017, with the hope that power will be restored to Sapphire Village by then. I will not accept reservations for dates prior to power restoration.

I am confident the island will rebuild, and be stronger and more beautiful than ever! VISTRONG!

Life's a Beach Rental!

Welcome to this beautifully furnished condominium with ocean views one can only dream about. If you are looking for paradise; look no further- you have found it! If you have done your research on vacation rental properties, it's time to forget the rest... and stay at the best!!!

This immaculate studio for two is located on top of a hill in Sapphire Village, on the East End of St.Thomas, USVI, in the most awesome location on the island, near Red Hook. The studio comes with ever amenity you can think of, to make it YOUR tropical island dream home, away from home. Whether you prefer to wake up and smell the coffee to a Caribbean sunrise or to chill out and relax with a blender full of tropical daiquiris, this place has it all!

This amazing studio for two is located on Sapphire Hill, a quick 5 minute walk to stunning Sapphire Beach - a half mile stretch of soft white sand and turquoise waters...Caribbean Paradise! Footsteps from the condo, there are two swimming pools to choose from in Sapphire Village.

Why the Owner Chose Sapphire Village:

I chose to buy a condo in Sapphire Village because of it's perfect location, with the most awesome views of the ocean and neighboring islands. Sapphire Village is close to everything!

Footsteps from the condo, there are two swimming pools to choose from in Sapphire Village.

Sapphire Beach - Things To Do...: Between the condo and the beach is a Marina, where there are wave runners to rent, boats to rent, and/or you can catch a day trip to various British Virgin Islands (BVIs)

Walking past the Marina, you will discover Sapphire Beach, where you can pick out your favorite tree for shade, relax, sunbath, snorkel, or rent a kayak or paddle-board.

Speaking of snorkeling, Sapphire Beach has so many varieties of friendly fish that swim right up to you! Snorkel around the reef and discover an underwater paradise! There's also kayaks available for rent ($20 per hour), plus wave-runners, and day-sail trips to the British Virgin Islands (BVI's).

Red Hook is a $2 Safari Taxi ride away. Here you will find many local bars, clubs, and restaurants, with plenty of culinary delights to eat, and live music to be heard. At the Red Hook Ferry Terminal, pay $7 per person each way, and catch a wonderful 15 minute cruise over to the neighboring island of beautiful St. John.

I am confident that you will absolutely love my condo. It's situated in such a great location... a 5-minute stroll to the beach and a 10-minute walk to the town of Red Hook, where there's good food, drink, and entertainment, as well as the ferry to St. John (2/3rds of the island is preserved National Park).

I have a King Size Bed, 39' HDTV, and DVD player with free DVDs in the condo office. I have all the appliances you need.. Blender, coffee maker, microwave, hairdryer, iron, etc. I have plenty of beach towels, beach lounge chairs, a cooler, etc., etc.

For Internet access, in my building, there is a condo association office, where my guests can pick up a signal. Footsteps away from my condo are 2 swimming pools as well. There's also a laundry room that accepts tokens for washing and drying.

Once you reserve, I will send you all sorts of important information about my condo, as well as fun things to do, places to go, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wowie! What a fantastic time we had here staying in your condo! The view was just breath taking! We took enough pictures to look at every day for at least two years; it was so beautiful. The beach was so pretty. The water was warm and bright blue; and the sand was soft and white just like the clouds in the sky! Thank you very much for putting activities and restaurants in the binder. It was very helpful! Thank you for the hospitality! You made sure we had a truly terrific time! God Bless, Kaylee & Christie

  • 5 of 5

This was are second time staying in Tom's condo. We love Sapphire Beach and Tom's condo at Sapphire Village. Tom will provide you with all the information you need to have a great stay. Everything you need to cook all your meals if you choose is available. Beach towels, chairs and toys, even a cooler are also included. Amazing view from your balcony. We love being so close to Red Hook and the ferry to St. John. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip.

Great Condo and Location

  • 4 of 5

Spent 16 days at this condo in February and loved it. The location is any easy walk from the beach, very close to the pool, laundry and Slice restaurant. Tom was great from booking right through to deposit return with immediate replies to any questions we had along the way. Everything you'll need from coolers to beach chairs are supplied in the condo. It is a short drive or 2 dollar Safari taxi to Red Hook for the Ferry, groceries or many bars for a drink or a bite to eat. Highly recommend this property and we will return someday.

Christmas on St Thomas

  • 5 of 5

Hello & Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us, & I should add very clean also. Everything we needed was there. We spent every morning making smoothies & having coffee on the deck while overlooking the ocean. The breeze came in so nice that we didn't need AC all week. We ventured out some & took the ferry to St John but the best beach we found was right on St Thomas, Magens beach, all the amenities & great sand! The restaurant "Slice" located down from the condo in the pool area has great food & very friendly staff. Marina was also a highlight for taking walks. And Tom you were great to work with & supplied us with tons of info for our trip. I just can't say enough! Thanks Tom & Happy New Year to you. Greg & Karen-

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I was interested in renting this property, the owner Tom supplied me with all the information that I needed for our stay. This was our first trip to St. Thomas and it was everything I always dreamed of and more. The area where Tom's condo is located is in the perfect location. Close to the beach, Red Hook and the ferry to go over to St. John island. The condo was just perfect for the two of us and Tom made sure that he supplied us with information on where to shop, eat and snorkel. A great stay and I would certainly rent this condo again. We just loved our vacation.

Perfect couples getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect place for my husband and I to get away for the week & celebrate our anniversary! It was quite, clean, and in a safe location! We enjoyed the amazing view from our balcony and the short walk to Sapphire Beach!!! It was nice to park our rental car right in front of our room and not have to climb stairs with our luggage! The condo had all the amenities we needed and more! It was in the perfect location for catching the ferry to St John, shopping & eating at Red Hook, or visiting the beautiful nearby beaches! We visited Sapphire Beach, Smith Bay, Coki Beach, and Magens Bay on St Thomas! We also caught the ferry to St John and drove to Trunk Bay, and Waterlemon for snorkeling! If you are looking for a place to stay and not venture out, the condo has a bar and grill, a beautiful pool, and Sapphire beach is a beautiful place to spend the day! Tom was very helpful in providing us with all the info we needed to enjoy our stay! We were very pleased to find such an affordable condo this nice! We definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for an affordable perfect place to stay!
