Free Parking on Site

The Sapphire Beach Resort itself is located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The beach is a white sandy beach which is literally steps from your front door and both balconies overlook it. There are palm trees and seagrape trees to offer shade from the hot tropical sun when needed. If you like to snorkel, you won't be disappointed at Sapphire!! There are so many colorful tropical fish, sea turtles and sea rays! You don't even need to swim far to see the fish. There is a multi-level pool on site. There are free beach chairs at the entrance to the beach, just ask the attendant and he will set them up for you. (Your unit also comes with chairs if you prefer to bring them down). There are 4 sets of snorkel gear included in this unit, but if you want more beach activities, you can rent kayaks, paddle boards, and windsurf boards on-site. There is a marina on-site as well to book daily excursions to the British Virgin Islands, rent jet skis, sunset cruises, deep sea fishing and so much more.

The condo is also equipped with beach towels, bath towels and bed linens. Folding beach chairs (4), beach volley ball, noodle to float around in the Caribbean and beach coolers.

Good Word of Advice: Every unit in the Sapphire Beach Resort Community is individually owned. The condition and amenities of each unit vary widely!! Our two story end unit has been carefully finished with high quality materials and a beautiful designer touch. By having a second floor master bedroom, you have complete privacy in your own bedroom and private terrace. The pullout bed on the lower level adds space for other guests while still ensuring privacy. We could easily add another pullout couch to fit more people, but to be realistically comfortable we choose to cap it at 4 guests.

You do not necessarily need a car to get around the island. You can walk up the fairly steep hill at Sapphire's entrance to the main road and catch a "safari" taxi (open air bus style taxi) for $2. This safari will take you to Red Hook in about 2 minutes where you can go to many different bars and restaurants, do some shopping and catch the ferry to St. John. It will also take you to downtown Charlotte Amalie which is a bit further (maybe 20-25 minutes) where you'll find a lot more shopping, restaurants and bars. The safaris are very convenient, but if you want to see a lot more of the island and not rely on public transportation, renting a car is a great option. It's very easy to drive around the island, just stay to the left.

About Carrie Renzi

After years of traveling to St. Thomas and always ending up at Sapphire Beach because of its beauty,white sandy beaches, and awesome snorkeling, we decided to purchase a unit of our own. Had no idea it would be the most beautiful in the area! Carrie and Dan were not selling but I begged her enough and we got to be really good friends, so she finally sold! I scraped up as much as I could for my dream and to honor my mom...We know you will love this condo as much as we do!!

Carrie Renzi purchased this condo in 2017

Why Carrie Renzi chose Estate Smith Bay

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is located right on Sapphire Beach. You are only a few steps from your front door to the beach. The beach is wide, the sand is so white against the turquoise blue Caribbean Sea. The snorkeling is amazing - coral, fish, sting rays and sea turtles have been spotted!! We survived 2, category 5 hurricanes the month of Sept. and our little bay seems to have Gods hand protecting us! ONE LOVE

What makes this condo unique

No traffic or freeway noise, no sirens, just beautiful ocean waves, small enough to swim and snorkel, but enough to hear and relax with! Relax and enjoy ; )

What a View!

  • 5 of 5

Debi's Beach House was everything it was advertised and more! The condo itself is completely renovated and extremely well done. We had several other couples that traveled with us and stayed in other nearby properties who were extremely jealous of our unit. Having a balcony with a view was important to us and this unit provides it twice! This corner unit is directly in front of the best part of Sapphire Beach. The snorkeling was very good (a large variety of fish, schools of reef squid, spotted eagle rays, and even a very harmless nurse shark).The beachside bar & grill is only steps to the west and was surprisingly good. We were a little worried about getting to and fro for lunches, but found ourselves enjoying the beach and atmosphere so much during the day that we were very pleased with the onsite grill. The unit is well stocked with beach supplies (snorkel, fins & masks; cooler, 4 beach chairs, etc.). One additional huge plus for us was the washer/dryer. We didn't need to use it much, but just having it there was great. Special thanks to Carrie who was very accessible and offered great suggestions on restaurants, grocery stores, transportation, etc. One other suggestion - if you want a great 6-hour sailing/snorkeling adventure - contact Simplicity Charters.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

I do not even know where to begin, this condo was perfect! It was clean, spacious and the location is unbeatable. The view from both balconies are breathtaking..I could have sat there all day staring at the ocean. The bed was extremely comfortable which is super important to us.

We went for my husbands 30th birthday and Carrie the owner went above and beyond to help me make our trip memorable. She stocked the fridge with some items for me upon request and hung some banners for me. It was super sweet. Carrie was also very quick to reply to any questions I had or ready to give suggestions!

The location is super close to Red hook which is full of really good food options and a great little grocery store called moes.

Taxis are also at the property and ready to transport if you do not rent a car.

We would stay here again in a heart beat and highly suggest it!

If there is a more stunning place---I can't imagine! The view from this condo is UNBELIEVABLE and looks just like the pictures. It is a short walk to the beach--they have nice lounge chairs at the beach. A guy places them wherever you want and puts them up as well. We went here for our honeymoon--we had tons of privacy,, but right down the beach at the grill, there was plenty going on so we could people watch! A place was also there for any parasail, paddle board, etc...also a marina for sunset cruises right there at the condo. GORGEOUS POOL and tons of places to take pics!!!!!! The unit was clean, and very nice!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE...OH!...also Carrie that owns the condo was VERY nice and got back with me quickly for any questions I had...even sent me a list of nearby grocery stores, excursions, etc. VERY NICE!

Loved Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, just as advertised (which we appreciated). Would definitely stay here again! Proximity to Sapphire beach & chairs a huge plus, as well as proximity to Red Hook/Ferry to explore St. John. Carrie was nice & accommodating. She had great instructions (we're not used to smart homes), as well as local amenities like shopping, dining & activities.

Top Notch Amenities in St. Thomas

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in St. Thomas. The view was breathtaking and the water was pristine. Carrie was the absolute BEST to deal with. She went above and beyond informing us about all of the activities and recommended places to eat on the island. Unfortunately, our vacation was cut a little short due to cancelled airline flights, so we didn't get to explore the island as much as we would have liked. However, we totally enjoyed the condo and views. We really enjoyed the fact that they had a small restaurant/grill and also beach waitresses that would bring you food and drinks! The food was affordable and so were the drinks. My boys loved the Strawberry smoothies. We met a lot of great people from different areas while staying there. I miss it already. Would definitely rent this condo again and would recommend it to anyone.

Lucky us!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time traveling and even though we arrived in the rain nothing could spoil the beauty of this island! The condo had everything we needed and more. The view was amazing and doubled by the fact that it's a corner unit. The beach was perfect for us with a combination of sun and shade. For active vacationers there is snorkeling and kite boarding right outside the door. For those of us who are happy to read a book and soak up the sun Carrie provides beach chairs, or do as we did and tip the man on the beach to put a chaise in any location you choose for the day! The Sapphire Beach Bar was a great option for lunch. May we suggest the grilled marinated chicken sandwich with pineapple and bacon??? The smoothies and piña coladas were a nice addition also! THE SLICE is also a nice option for lunch or dinner. It is a casual open restaurant just a short walk past Sapphire Beach Marina. It's also a short drive to Red Hook for the ferry to St John which we did one of the days. Beautiful! Our original plan was to never spend a vacation at a place we'd already been to but we're already rethinking that. This place is beautiful and Carrie is wonderful to work with. We would absolutely suggest this condo for others and might even return ourselves someday. Thank you Carrie and Dan.
