Overview

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!

About Gregg and Aimee Dodd

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.

Gregg and Aimee Dodd purchased this condo in 2010

Why Gregg and Aimee Dodd chose East End

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.

What makes this condo unique

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!

PARADISE !!!

  • 5 of 5

Apr 2017. Gregg and Aimee, what a gem of a corner unit you have. First floor access to beach, 37 steps, was even more beautiful than your pics or VRBO description. Sapphire Beach has always been one of my favorite travel destinations and my sister and myself will be back again soon. Can't get anymore relaxing.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Recently just got back from staying at Gregg and Aimee's place "37 Steps". The place is gorgeous and absolutely perfect in so many ways. Inside is the condo has all been re-done perfectly. It's right on the beach. You wake up and walk right into the water. It's a perfect location because you have a great snorkeling beach out front, a marina which gives you access to excursions, the ferry dock 2 minutes away, and downtown dinning. I would highly recommend 37 Steps and would stay here again in a heart beat. Thanks again Gregg and Aimee! -Patrick

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Gregg and Aimee were AMAZING!! If we had a question they got back to us right away. Location was absolutely fantastic!! We stayed for 10 days and want to go back, but it is already booked for the time we usually go. Could not ask for more!! Kitchen was stocked with all the supplies you will need for your stay. Bed was comfortable and sitting areas were perfect! Great people to work with! Housekeeper was VERY accommodating!!!

Nicely updated. Comfortable. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

37 steps is the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. Even though it is on the first floor you have plenty of privacy as it is on the quiet end of the beach. If you want more action just walk to the other end of the beach. Plenty of people, nice beach, fun bar and plenty of water toys to rent. Very clean and updated. Patio is amazing but the furniture is very uncomfortable. Loved being able to just walk right out to the beach. Only a few minutes to red hook. Lots of places to eat there. Taxi stand right in resort. $4 per person each way to redhook. Beats walking up the steep hill and on the narrow road with no sidewalk. Really enjoyed our stay there and will definitely be back!
