About the Property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

You can't get any closer to the water! Oceanfront ground floor condo. 37 steps from the water. Enjoy your stay at what I think is one of the world's most beautiful beaches with the ease of accessing your condo at any time.
Enjoy swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing in the warm crystal clear water of Sapphire Beach. Whether you just want to relax, or have a more adventurous time, we have it all. The marina is just around the other side of the building to rent jet skis, para sail, book a snorkel or scuba adventure, or charter a romantic sunset cruise.
Enjoy just relaxing on the beach with beautiful views of St. John or the other islands. I'm sure someone will be by soon to offer you a drink, or perhaps a snack.
We provide beach chairs and snorkel gear!
We also have a beautiful pool, the Banana Cabana for a frozen beverage and fantastic food, and of course the local iguana population!
Need to check email, post your photos, research a restaurant or check flight status? We now have free wireless internet access available in our condo.
Sapphire Beach has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Paradise!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Aimee and I live in Pittsburgh, PA and try to get to St. Thomas as often as possible. With a kid and two dogs, it's not always that easy.

Why the Owner Chose East End, St Thomas, USVI:
After spending our honeymoon at Sapphire Beach Resort in 2000, we knew this was one of the nicest beaches we had been to. We traveled to Aruba, Mexico, Bahamas, Punt Cana, and all of the other popular vacation spots but we kept coming back to Sapphire Beach. There is something to be said about feeling safe, and still being in the US helps. Everyone is friendly and there is always something to do.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This condo truly is the best location at Sapphire. You are far enough from the main beach and pool that you get to relax at all times. Conversely, take 40 or 50 steps and you are at the pool. Walk a little further and you are at the marina. You are centrally located with easy access to everything. We go shopping as soon as we arrive and usually eat breakfast and lunch in the condo. Aimee and I are beach people, so being at the beach is what it is all about for us. At night we head into Red Hook to one of the restaurants. Duffy's Love Shack is a must visit, but don't go too early. The party has to wind itself up!
