Property description

Stunning video of Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina! http://youtu.be/oax7iPSHtAQ
As they travel the beach, B build is the fourth building shown.

FROM A LONG TIME RENTER:
I have been going to Sapphire Beach for about 20 years. It is my guaranteed good weather, fun getaway on an annual basis. I’ve mostly stayed at one of the Parkes’ condominiums either at the beach or overlooking the harbor (a short, pleasant walk from the beach). The condos themselves are beautiful and well-furnished in tasteful island décor, made the more so by Barbara, co-hostess. The kitchen, baths and master suite are to die for and can accommodate the guests with two separate sleep sofas as well, if needed.

The beach itself is clean, white sand with an expansive view of the entire bay, the ships and St John, a short ferry ride away (for down-home shopping and snorkeling and dining treats). There is great snorkeling right at Sapphire as well. The Sapphire Beach community also has a sport hut for snorkel gear and fish food. There is ample food and drink accessibility through the Banana Cabana which makes sunning the more enjoyable on chaises by the water or under the row of shade trees. You can relax at either venue easily and comfortably. Or you can use the pool between the beach and the harbor if you prefer. It is equally lovely and the island breezes keep you refreshed, along with the occasional dip in either the pool or the sea.

I also treasure the day sail and fishing adventures from the local boats at the harbor there. They range from hosting two people to dozens of guests, depending on size of the boat, but all are enjoyable. Meals and drinks are served on board, and some take you through the British Virgin Islands to view the “Baths” on Virgin Gorda or to the famous “Soggy Dollar” seaside bar.

Then too, just down the hill, is the local town of Red Hook which boasts great dining, shopping (not crowded as it is in downtown Charlotte Amalie) and a huge fishing boat harbor. All in all, Sapphire Beach is ideal for a vacation and is ideally located. I love it and am headed back again in November. Can’t wait.

DETAILS: This totally renovated, 1100 square foot, 2 story, corner unit, condo with wrap around balcony on each floor. The unit is located in the B building. Only 50' to the best part of Sapphire Beach for swimming. Your view is spectacular from the private balconies. Your view includes St. John, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, Hans Lollick, and several cays. Most special is the colors of the crystal clear sapphire blue water.

The lower floor has a full kitchen, with a convection microwave oven, sitting area, bar, flat screen TV, queen sleep sofa, full bath.

The top floor features wood cathedral ceilings. There is a new king size bed, TV, a sitting area with a queen size sleep sofa, desk and full bath.

The unit has central air conditioning, cable, ceiling fans, wi-fi, and a nearby multi level pool.


A fully equipped dive shop has snorkel gear, they can arrange scuba excursions, offer floats, windsurfing lessons, and kayak rentals. You can also enjoy a game of beach volleyball on the sandy beach.

The marina at Sapphire Beach offers day cruises including snorkeling excursions, trips to the BVI, and deep-sea fishing. You have a choice of power, or sail boats. You can also rent a jet ski or go parasailing.

Restaurants nearby offer everything from Italian, Mexican, fresh fish, pub food, and local favorites Marina Market in Red Hook is conveniently located and there is also a supermarket (The Food Center) further down the road where you can find a wider selection.

If you don't want to leave the beach, there is also a small refreshment stand between buildings B&C at Sapphire serving hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, soft drinks, beer and tropical drinks(hours: 11AM-4PM).

Sapphire Grill located at Sapphire Village is a short walk away.

Golfing enthusiasts can play at nearby Mahogany Run, and challenge the 'devils triangle'.
