What makes Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina so special? It is located directly on one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. You are literally steps from the beach with an amazing coral reef and great snorkeling! We have tried many other places, but none had as pretty a beach, the great breezes, or such great snorkeling right outside our door. With the marina at the resort and the ferry from Red Hood close by, it is perfect for island hopping to St John or the British Virgin Islands. Enjoy tropical drinks and a burger or mahi sandwich at the Banana Cabana located on the beach, open during the day for lunch and snacks. The dive shop on site rents snorkeling equipment and kayaks. The views of St John and the British Virgin Islands are simply spectacular! If you want to have a spacious, comfortable suite with an incredible view right on a stunningly beautiful beach, this is it!


What makes Sea Glass at Sapphire (E206) so wonderful? We purchased this condo in 2012 and have renovated and updated almost everything in the condo! It sleeps up to 4 (2 adults plus 2 children - age 12 or under). We want your family to be comfortable, so we have HEAVENLY BED KING MATTRESS AND BOX SPRINGS, queen sofa sleeper, oversized chair, NEW bar height patio table and chairs, Biltmore 600 and 800 thread count linens, luxury bath linens and beach towels, dinnerware with embossed shells, new rugs, new light fixtures including ceiling fans, new lamps and COMPLETELY RENOVATED BATHROOM. The bathroom has a new tile shower with pebble flooring, pebble accents, new tile floors, and granite countertops. The unit has been freshly painted throughout! Sapphire Beach Resort has 5 Buildings that are on the beach--A,B,C,D and E. My husband and I have stayed in every building, and the thing we love about the E building is that it offers spectacular views of the turquoise blue water as well as direct views of St John and the British Virgin Islands. It is also more private than some of the other buildings, as several of the buildings are on the busier 'main' beach. Here, you can enjoy the activities on the main beach and then come back to the privacy of your condo when you are ready to chill. One of my favorite things about being in the E building is watching the twinkling lights on St John at night...absolutely magical!

All of the first and second floor units at Sapphire Beach Resort are Studio suites, while the third and fourth floors are the two-story Villa units. We feel some of the advantages that the second floor units have compared to the first floor units are better views and more privacy.

We love the snorkeling here! We regularly see turtles and rays in the grass bed in the middle of Sapphire Beach, and the reef on both sides and around the point is breathtakingl! It is quite a show of purple fans, yellow corals, and beautiful fish! I have even seen a spotted eagle ray here! We can give you some great recommendations for snorkeling spots on St John and in the BVIs as well.

The living area features a queen sleeper sofa, over-sized chair, coffee table, flat screen TV, and a full kitchen. The sliding glass doors off of the living area open onto the spacious patio with bar height dining table for four. Blue tooth speaker. BEACH TOWELS ARE PROVIDED.

There are many great restaurants throughout St Thomas and St John, and we have listed some of our favorites in the welcome emails we send.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live in Greenville, South Carolina and have three children...two boys and a girl. I am a real estate agent, and my husband is an engineer. We love to travel, and Sapphire Beach is our favorite! Click on the satellite link on the map below to see the water colors and the reefs at Sapphire!

Why the Owner Chose East End, St Thomas, USVI:
We fell in love with Sapphire Beach Resort the first time we stepped onto the white sands in 2004. We have visited many resorts throughout the US and British Virgin Islands, but Sapphire has always been our favorite. It was our dream to own a place here!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love being able to snorkel every day right outside of the condo, hanging out in a lounge chair on the beach, and being able to see the turquoise water from every vantage point in the room! We love going over to St John on the car ferry (only a mile down the road) and snorkeling different places there. We love exploring the British Virgin Islands, too! The Baths are a must see! There are many great snorkeling spots in the British Virgin Islands as well.
