About Bill Rynne

My wife and I would love to spend six or seven months a year here if we could bring our dog. We live west of Boston, MA and although we love the changing seasons, life at our condo at Sapphire is very special for us.

I am not always very good at expressing to my wife how very special she is and how much I love her. I am also not very romantic, but somehow I came up with a very special moment for my wife while we were at Sapphire a few years ago

.

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law (my wife's maid of honor at our wedding) , were staying with us at the condo at the same time as our fortieth wedding anniversary. I secretly arranged for a surprise vow renewal at the point at Sapphire. I worked with a local wedding coordinator to help with the arrangements and I secretly flew my kids in and hid them out until the night of our anniversary. I lured everyone to the point at sunset and sprung the surprise. She was completely surprised. When she realized what was going on and saw the kids the tears started. It was a very special evening!

A funny moment occurred before the actual ceremony. I got down on one knee and proposed, again. and again, and again. .....She refused to answer me! She claims she was confused and trying to comprehend what was happening, but I have serious doubts. I think she was mulling alternatives but I guess I will never know for sure. She eventually said yes.

That is just one reason that Sapphire is so meaningful for us. We hope you can create your own memories on your vacation.

Bill Rynne purchased this condo in 1988

Why Bill Rynne chose USVI/St. Thomas

We had visited many Caribbean islands before we came to Sapphire Beach. Just about the minute we walked out on the beach we knew we had found our beach. At that time, the early 80's, we stayed nearby as the resort had not been built. We saw some tentative plans and made a reservation for our unit. The construction was not completed until 1988, which is when we took title.

St. Thomas is easy to get to from the East coast with direct flights of four hours or less from Boston, NY, and Miami.

It is an American territory so money, electricity, and language require no special arrangements. Probably the major difference from the states are that they drive on the left.

While nothing is guaranteed you usually have warm sunny days, with light breezes on every visit

What makes this condo unique

Our family has sun lovers and shade sitters. Sapphire Beach has an abundance of both sunny and shady beach areas.

The swimming beach is literally steps from our door, so going back to the condo for lunch,drinks, bathroom, etc is a piece of cake.

Many choose to spend the day on the beach enjoying the beautiful view of St. John. Jost Van Dyke, Tortolla, and the many nearby cays. You can count on watching the Pelicans diving from the sky to catch fish, and walk the half mile beach now and then.

There is a nice reef for snorkeling on the right side of the beach. It is a shallow reef so is very safe and yet has many different varieties of fish of all sizes and colors.

For the more adventuresome there is an area of seagrass out deeper that usually has turtles, rays, and, squid.

There is a dive shop on the beach with all sorts of gear and toys. There are floats, snorkeling equipment, wind surfers, kayaks, scuba, scuba lessons, and both shore and boat dives.

Sapphire has an on site marina and there are many tour boats of all types in the marina that go to St. John, Jost Van Dyke, and the Baths at Virgin Gorda. There are several fishing boats in the marina as well.

Be sure to ask about my special discounts on any New Horizon boat trips or sunset cruises.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Bill,

Just trying to catch my breath back home but wanted to let you know what a great time we had. The views from the condo were FABULOUS! AWESOME! BREATHTAKING! PERFECT location...perfect amenities...staff was perfect....condo was perfect! I just can't say enough wonderful things about your place. The information you sent us was PERFECT! So very helpful and informative. We just didn't stay long enough....the beach was beautiful and the very best snorkeling. We went to St. John one day using the car ferry. We visited all the beaches mentioned on both islands. We rented a car from Avis and had no problems. The folks you mentioned were very nice but didn't have a small car available.





Your condo had every single thing we needed. The location was the very best on the island and so convenient to the market and Food Center. I don't know what the bathrooms looked like before but they sure are beautiful with the rock showers. I did talk to someone on the beach and the condo they rented had not been updated. The ONLY thing, which I hesitate to even mention, was that the remote downstairs did not work with the TV. The back was missing from the remote. The office staff put new batteries in it for us but still didn't work.Never was a problem but thought you would like to know. We tried using the remote from upstairs downstairs but wouldn't work.





I don't know how you can stay away from there till January. We ate all of our meals on the porch as we listened to the birds and surf. We watched a little hummingbird in that gorgeous orange flowered tree every day. We only ate one meal out which was Mother's Day and that was at Molly Malone's. We had salad and cottage pie which was delicious and one meal would have fed us both.So, we brought the leftovers back to the condo and had a meal for Mon. night! We ate lunch one day at Tap & Still. You were right. It was like a 5 Guys and very good. We ate lunch in Charlotte Amalie one day and had tacos. All the other meals I cooked.





Thank you so much for working with me on the dates. We had such a wonderful time and wouldn't hesitate to recommend your place. Back to the real world now.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering renting this unit- DO IT. I can't get over how lovely, spacious and comfortable Bill's condo was. After staying here for 3 night, we went to a "luxury" condo on STJ- and I missed Bill's place! This was our first time staying at Sapphire Beach, and we loved it. The proximity to Red Hook can't be beat. The beach was fantastic as well. Just days before our arrival, a new beach bar had opened up- and there is an adjacent grill where you can get sandwiches, etc.. We loved our time at Bill's place, and hope to return soon! He was so easy to work with too!

Sapphire beach resort exceeded my expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks four the use of your place Bill. The views are like in the movies. Nices place I ever stayed in my life. Next to a marina where we took a day sail to St. John. Which was so much fun. Close to red hook we even walked once and it has many restaurant choices. Also good little grocery store named moes

The beach is so beautiful and has some amazing snorkeling. Wonderfull corals and vibrant fish. Right in your own back yard! We got to swim with turtles straight out from the condo which was amazing

The snack bar is so convenient with decent food. Scott the beach chair guy is a character and very friendly. Ferry to other islands is 2 minutes away. Couldn't ask for better. We loved it so much. Thanks Bill! Hope to return.
