Great location! Great amount of space for our family of 5. Love the large patio

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and it's location. The condo has a nice lay out and plenty of space. The kitchen was well equiped for cooking and the large patio was the perfect place to eat most of our meals, while enjoying the view of the sea. The beach is great, and we enjoyed swimming and snorkeling. I would highly recommend this location.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 stayed here last week. The owner was responsive and communication was easy. The condo was mostly as described. Very clean, bright and roomy. Kitchen was well equipped. Air conditioning worked perfectly. Plenty of hot water and water pressure in the showers. Now.....the location. Oh my goodness! PERFECT! The large patio allowed us plenty of space to lounge around and visit, while watching the water. The patio chairs could be updated, but that is about the only issue I can think of. The beach is steps away from the door. Snorkeled right off the beach! This is the best condo location on Sapphire Beach! We hope to go back next year and will definitely stay here again!

Great beach, large condo, nice patio!

  • 5 of 5

Love the location of this condo! We spent a lot of time lounging on the beach just steps from our front door. It was nice to have the beach bar and restaurants right there!

The condo had a lot of space and four bathrooms! Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy our vacation. We cooked a few meals in and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Eating and reading on the patio was very relaxing and private.

We usually just pass through St. Thomas on our way to St. John, but stayed a few nights on St. Thomas for the first time this year. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

We'll be back!!!

Great location and family friendly property

  • 4 of 5

Our family just wanted a nice beach focused vacation and this property was perfect for it. The location is terrific being just steps from the beach. The beach itself was not very crowded, mostly older couples and families, with plenty of swimming and snorkeling in a sheltered bay. You can walk to a couple of restaurants if need be and groceries were just a short drive away. The house was perfect for our family, not too fancy, but clean and functional. It may be a bit dated for some tastes but we didn't mind. The owner was communicative and helpful. Would gladly rent again.
