Live in Ireland and like to get away to the sun as often as possible.

Why Eamon Guilfoyle chose East End

Came to work in St Thomas as a Scuba Instructor in 2003 and loved the place. Have regularly returned as St Thomas is a magical place.

What makes this studio unique

The view is spectacular. Lots of Islands in the distance and the blue water just make it for me.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. Glad you had a great time. I do try to describe the Condo as you should expect to find it. Sapphire Beach is one of the nicest beaches is St Thomas and probably best for snorkeling. Come back again.

This place worked out great for us. Close proximity to Red Hook with easy walk to restaurant, 2 pools, office, beach, and catching the safari buses.

Great base camp for a weeks stay.

  • 5 of 5

Nice place to call home while on the island. Has all your basic amenities needed. We slept and made breakfast at condo and it worked well. Good location with nice beach. Not a Hilton style place but no where near the cost of that. Very reasonable cost. Stores and attractions close by. Driving takes a little getting used to on island. Enjoy!!

Felt like home

  • 4 of 5

We walked into a super clean studio with awesome views! Loved the location and amenities at Sapphire Village. Slice has excellent pizza which is a 2 minute walk from condo. Red Hook is less than 5 minite drive Would definitely stay again and hated to leave. If you love to snorkel its a good beach for that as well. Eamon is very responsive and gave great advice about the area.

Studio Splendor

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time on the island, with all the restaurants, sightseeing, beaches and snorkeling! We loved where we stayed, close to Red Hook and easy to get to other areas we wanted to visit. We met several people who rent/own condo's in the same village and they gave us great information on where to get groceries and local restaurants to eat at. Thank you so much Eamon, we loved this experience and we will definitely come back and book with you again!!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a Great Time, I certainly do when I get to go down to St Thomas. Some people find the Island way of life strange, but others love it. I do try to describe the Condo as you will find it. Its nice to hear from people who shares our experience of the Islands. Eamon

Not what I expected...cleanliness huge issue

  • 2 of 5

After reading so many positive reviews, I was shocked to find this condo so dirty and in need of repair. The only reason I gave 2 stars was the location was great and Sapphire beach is amazing and so close. It is a shame that this property has not been updated or cleaned well. The bathroom was totally disgusting, the tub was filthy, faucets old and rusty, grout had huge black mold spots. The bed was extremely uncomfortable, quality of linens awful, mattress was full of huge brown stains which we saw unfortunetly due to the sheets coming off as they were all stretched out and did not stay put on the bed. The couch used barely has any cushion on it and the pattern that was is totally gone. The air conditioner is loud and does not adequelty cool the room, the bed is not near the a/c and it gets warm at night. There as rust in the freezer and the fridge was old and dirty. The tile floor throughout the condo was again filty, as I wiped a small water spill the paper towel was black with dirt. The balcony furniture is very old and shabby and there are rusty water stains and cracks in the tile on the balcony. It is a shame that the owner is letting this property go as the location is wonderful, close to the bus and Red Hook. The internet did not work for 2 days, we had to call and were told that the condo has had issues with the internet recently. I guess you get what you pay for...if you want clean, don't stay here. I can't imagine others thinking this was acceptable, I am not unreasonable and understand that the rate was lower that others in Sapphire Village, but for what we paid I expected better conditions. I would not recommend this condo and informed the owner with pictures of the conditions we stayed in for a week. Never again....

Owner's Response: I am disappointed that you differ from most of my guests who give me good reviews. I get good reviews because I offer value for money and a great view and location. Condo is typical design of its time in St Thomas. Some people love St Thomas and others find it tatty and behind what they consider are the times. You obviously would prefer the Ritz. I suggest you go to the Ritz next time and pay Ritz prices.
