About the Property

Beachfront, Building E, Unit 308, Top Two Floors, Sleeps 6

Directly On Sapphire Beach, Unit E308 offers Spectacular Views overlooking St.John and the British Virgin Islands. The exterior and interior of this condo have been completely renovated, refurbished and redecorated. The property has a Marina, Water Sports Rentals, White Sand Beach, Swimming Area, Coral Reefs, an Oceanfront Pool and a Beach Bar. This Ideal East End Location is less than a mile from Red Hook with Restaurants, Harbor and Ferry Service to other Islands. Our Condo is on the third and fourth floors at the Top of Building E, at the quiet end of the Beach, convenient to the Marina. Building E faces East allowing for lovely Breezes and Gorgeous Views. From this location, so close to the water, you have an unobstructed, panoramic View of the Sapphire Blue Caribbean Sea and Colorful, ever-changing Skies from Sunrise to Sunset. St. John and the British Virgin Islands form the backdrop and provide dots of Sparkling Lights at night. The Boats coming in and out of the Marina are beautiful and calming.

With its two floors, our condo offers comfort and flexibility for couples or families. Both levels of this condo have Full Bathrooms with Showers and hair dryers, Sleeping and Living space, and Balconies with Tables and seating. The Full Kitchen is equipped with Stainless Steel Appliances, Glass Cooktop, Cookware, Dinnerware and Electric Grill. Food and Drinks can be enjoyed at the Indoor Table, on the Balcony or at the Beachfront Bar. Quiet, Top Floor Workspace with a Toshiba computer and unlimited WiFi is provided for work or socializing without giving up the View. The main floor has a 50" Sony Smart TV with Netflix Streaming Video, a Sony Play Station 3 with Games for all ages, a DVD Player with a large selection of Movies and a Bose SoundTouch Music system. The Bedroom Suite on the top floor has a 42" Toshiba, LCD, Flat-Screen TV, Sony Play Station 2 with Games, Netflix, and a Sony DVD Player with Movies. For your sleeping comfort are a King size Bed upstairs, featuring a Therapedic Memory Foam Pillow Top Mattress and Queen size Sofa Beds on both 3rd and 4th floors that are new, highly rated, easy to use models.

Snorkeling is great fun at the Coral Reef in Crystal Clear water in front of E Building. High Quality Snorkel Gear for 6, in two sizes, is stored in this condo for guest use. Sea Grape trees, along the water's edge, provide shade allowing for hours of relaxation while enjoying the sound of the waves and the gentle breezes. Beach Loungers are provided for all guests. Adjacent to Building E, the Sapphire Beach Marina offers Boating, Diving, Snorkeling, Sailing, Island Hopping and Fishing trips to meet all purposes of visitors.

Sapphire Beach Bar, oceanfront on Sapphire Beach, serves drinks, salads and sandwiches. Their Sunday Fundays often include live music. VI Slice, a restaurant by the Sapphire Village pool, is easily walkable from Building E. Less than a mile away is the village of Red Hook where you will find most anything you want or need plus the American Yacht Harbor with Ferry service to St. John (pedestrian and auto) and the British Virgin Islands.

St. Thomas has many attractions and activities within easy driving distance such as Mahogany Run Golf Course, Magens Bay, Coral World, Zip-Lining, Hiking Trails, Sky-Lift, Botanical Gardens, Drake's Seat, and more. Colorful downtown Charlotte Amalie, the capital city, is a 25-minute drive and offers duty-free shopping. A 20 minute ferry ride will take you to St. John and a 30-minute seaplane flight or a longer, but usually pleasant, ferry ride will take you to historic St. Croix.

St. Thomas’ temperatures hover around a pleasant 80 degrees all year. You can adjust your indoor temperature with thermostats on both levels and Central Air Conditioning/ Heat. Ceiling fans and ocean breezes add to the comfort of tropical living. The island topography is hilly and absolutely gorgeous with lush foliage and ocean views from almost everywhere.

No passport is needed by American citizens to visit the US Virgin Islands of St.Thomas, St.John, Water Island or St.Croix. Bring one if you want to make side trips to the British Virgin Islands of Tortola, Jost van Dyke or Virgin Gorda.

Thank you for your interest in our condo. This is a non-smoking unit. Required minimum age of responsible guest is 25. Sapphire Beach has a strong Security System in place with lighting, cameras and personnel available 24 hours a day. When you book with us, we will send you an extensive list of information and recommendations to help make your vacation successful. Mary and Patrick, Owners, E308 SBRM

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with the ocean when we moved from Minnesota to Miami upon graduating from University. We now enjoy our life in North Carolina between the mountains and the beach. We first vacationed as a family in St. Thomas at the suggestion of our son, Eric, who is certified in deep sea diving, in the spring of 1999. It was so incredibly beautiful and enjoyable that we purchased a villa at the lovely Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina. I have since retired from teaching art and my husband has retired to Professor Emeritus status at Duke Medical Center here in Durham, NC. Eric now owns Logue Healthcare Consulting Company and is living in Atlanta, GA, enjoying direct flights to STT. Our other son, Sean, a manager of software engineering at IBM in NC, has joined in this wonderful experience. We all make regular trips to Sapphire Beach together and with friends. We like to celebrate our anniversary there and watch the fireworks being set off at St. John on New Year's Eve from our balcony. It remains the best get-away ever!

Why the Owner Chose Estate Smith Bay, Saint Thomas, USVI:
St.Thomas is that rare place that we enjoy returning to again and again without ever running out of interesting and enjoyable things to do and see. Sapphire Beach is conveniently located for access to shopping, restaurants and other Islands. We have explored St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Tortola, Virgin Gorda plus the caves of Norman Island and love all of the Virgin Islands. We always are happy to return to the incredibly beautiful Sapphire Beach. It's a wonderful place to begin and end each day.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love our top floor condo in E building for its spectacular view, ocean breezes, and quiet, calming environment. This spacious, well-designed, two-story condo affords us flexibility and comfort. One can sleep or work upstairs while another watches TV or enjoys an early morning cup of coffee downstairs. There is no one else above or below the bedroom and no one else looking down on our balconies or looking in from the beach. Building E is at the quiet end of the beach and is convenient to the marina, laundry facility, pool, coral reef, and restaurant.
