Probably the best unit at Sapphire Beach !

  • 5 of 5

The spectacular view from Sapphire Beach is one of the best in the world - definitely the best view from St. Thomas ! The beach is crescent shaped with white sand, some coral reef and clear gorgeous blue water.

The resort has been dragged down by a dispute and stalemate between the land owner and the property owners. So some amenities you might expect are not there, or are there in disrepair. There is no permanent restaurant or bar. The public bathroom is not so nice. But if you go for the nice accommodations, the gorgeous beach and especially the exotic spectacular view, you will be happy. We LOVED it !

NOTES FYI : The C building is being renovated with jack-hammering during the day. This was not a bother to us, but avoid end units in B and D which are too close to C. We read reviews of pumping trucks making a lot of noise at all hours. We did not see or hear this at all. There's a new little makeshift outdoor restaurant by the beach for lunch (only) and drinks which is nice.

Wonderful - perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at Sapphire Beach. Each time we've rented a different unit. This was our favorite unit for certain. It is in beautiful shape - nicely updated. The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware and all you could possibly need. The bed was perfection. There was a definite feel of being welcome by the little touches left by the owner. The owner was very responsive and helpful in advance of the rental. The view - as with all the Sapphire rentals - is incredible, probably the best on the island. Highly recommended rental.

Sapphire Beach Resort is in poor condition

  • 2 of 5

The resort has deteriorated over time due to an ongoing legal battle between the condo owners and the developer. As a result, many of the common facilities are boarded up, in disrepair, and/or closed....such as the swimming pool bar, the beach cabaña, etc., etc. A septic truck pumps the sewer a couple of times a day making lots of noise because of the dispute. The area just does not feel loved and cared for. Our condo unit was nice enough except the air conditioning did not cool…. making for some restless nights. And, the access code provided by the owner on Home Away did not work. Fortunately the on-site property manager rectified the access issue by giving us a new code. However, the air conditioning repairs were short lived. The coolant re-charge leaked and the temperature immediately rose. The TV remote control was broken and some of the light bulbs were burned out. The location is convenient and the beach is beautiful. However, the accommodations were not up to our expectations.

Relaxing & Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our 1st trip to STT and it was wonderful. Unit is clean and efficient use of space. Comparable to an upscale hotel. Bed was incredibly comfortable. We took taxi's to Red Hook for great restaurants & grocery shopping. We enjoyed the rum left in the room and we donated some too! Snorkeling was great. The beach is an easy walk from the unit. Not enough words to express the gorgeous views. Don't miss the panoramic look out point! We will be back!

Georgeous and Conveinent!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautifully decorated and had absolutely everything we needed for our stay. We are beach lovers, so being steps away from the turquoise water was nothing less than perfect! Having a full kitchen available for our use made having our 5 year old with us much easier and allowed us to prepare our own breakfasts and lunches for the beach. There are plenty of delicious dinner dining options in the area since it is only a couple minutes drive from Red Hook (Duffy's Love Shack was fun!). This close proximity to Red Hook was great since that's where the ferry goes out of to get to St. John. We spent several days at our own relaxing Sapphire Beach but also went to Coki Beach (water trampoline, hair braiding, beach bar/food service) and twice to St. John beaches. Overall, the vacation could not h ave been any better!

My husband and I've just returned from 5 fabulous nights @ Sapphire by the Sea-Blue. We went to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday, and while prior to our departure, I had many sleepless nights of guilt for not taking our children, etc., it turned out to be just what the doctor ordered. The condo is a quick drive from the airport (maybe 30-40 min) and is only a 3-minute drive into Red Hook. The condo is fantastic. Lovely décor, very comfortable mattress, extra supplies and touches to make us feel comfortable, UNBEATABLE view, safe....just ideal! When we first arrived I was concerned about having a 2nd floor condo vs ground level and hoped it wouldn't prove to be inconvenient for beach access/quick run in for drinks, etc. Once we got down to the beach, we realized it was so much better than a ground floor unit (Unless our kids were with us--then ground would have been helpful). The 2nd floor offers views above the trees, which aren't available to the ground floor. Breakfast and drinks on the deck with that view? Ahhhh..... Additionally, Building B is the way to go! Parts of Building A are obscured by the beach rental building, plus there's probably noise in the a.m. Building B has the benefit of being on an unobscured beach with white sandy swimmable beach 30 feet to the left and nice snorkeling beach 30 feet to the right. Buildings C-E are on a snorkeling only beach. I also heard that some cruise ship people are bused to Sapphire Beach--that never happened while we were there and there were plenty of cruise ships in port during our vacation. The location to Red Hook is so ideal. We rented a car and therefore never used the taxi service, but if you don't mind a steep uphill climb to the road, the taxi service does come frequently. The condo was super clean, excellent shower--just perfect. The owners of the condo are actually the in-laws to the original condo I wanted to rent (which is located next door and can have an adjoining patio if you want to unlock the doors) and therefore much of my interaction was with Joanne. She was the most helpful, kindest VRBO owner I've dealt with yet. She answered numerous emails I sent w/ questions galore and had some great advice for us. Just a great person!! You will not regret a decision to rent this condo!!
