About Cheri DZio

The owners of this unit fell in love with Sapphire Beach the moment they stepped foot on the property. The complex is well maintained and peaceful. Waking up to the sounds of the birds and ocean is so relaxing and recharges their minds, body and soul. Come and see what they fell in love with. You will too.

Cheri DZio purchased this condo in 2011

Why Cheri DZio chose East End

There are very few properties in St Thomas that offer a beach so close to your unit. Sapphire Bay Condos is also small. We are only two stories and the views are unmatched.

What makes this condo unique

Wake up and walk to the beach and have your coffee. Go snorkeling right on Sapphire beach! YES! we have two very nice reefs. There is a dive shop and a recently opened beach bar. We are one mile to Red Hook and so taxi's are cheap to get back and forth. We are also on the Safari Route so getting to town is very cheap too.

Nice Clean Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

Overall my stay at Starfish Studio was very nice. I was on St Thomas for business and stayed for 11 nights. The unit was clean, the bed was comfortable, the chairs and couch were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was nicely appointed, modern, clean and had everything you could need. Most people are probably not here to work, but the condo had a nice work space, strong wifi, and an awesome flat screen HDTV with Netflix.

The location is great and even the drive to downtown Charlotte Amalie of 20 minutes each day was totally worth it. The grounds are very nice and it is a short (1 min) walk to the beach. Plenty of free beach chairs. The salt water pool is really nice and there are 2 newly resurfaced tennis courts. I think I read an earlier review that complained about the grounds and tennis courts being in bad shape. As of April 2017, the grounds are in great shape and look beautiful.

Cheri is a great host was very responsive to any requests that I made for help or suggestions. Note that I never put the bed in the up position, there was plenty of room to move around and it is a real mattress, not something like a pull out sfoa

Great condo on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 nights in May 2016 at the Starfish Studio and loved every minute. The location is great and the studio itself is beautiful. The floors, decor, kitchen, bathroom, everything is very updated and clean. The owner is very responsive and was able to promptly resolve a few small "hiccups" that arose during our stay. We loved our stay at Starfish Studio and would definitely recommend to others! We plan to go back. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality!

Starfish Studio

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from St. Thomas. Can't wait to go again. The Starfish Studio was just great. It was everything we needed and so clean and comfortable. It was like a touch of paradise to be at the beach with St. John's so close by. The snorkeling was fun and we saw many turtles and sting rays. We rented a jeep so we could travel whenever we wanted. It's a little bit crazy driving on the wrong side of the road, but my husband adjusted quickly!! Looking forward to booking the same place again on our next trip.

Fantastic place to stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Starfish Studio is the perfect place to stay for us year after year. It is beautifully decorated with a fantastic view of Sapphire beach which is located just yards away. We think it's one of the most beautiful beaches on St. Thomas. It is very close to all the fantastic resturants and shops in Red Hook and the ferry to St. John. This property has a pool and tennis courts and complimentary beach chairs. We are staying at Starfish Studio when we visit again in August. The owners are so accommodating and the maid service is a plus.
