Designed by world-renowned architects George and Tom Fazio and opened in 1980, the 6000 yard Mahogany Run Golf Course attracts thousands of visitors each year – golfers and non-golfers, celebrities, and Presidents alike – to its challenging fairways and lush greens. Carved from Blue-Bit stone and nestled between the beautiful hills and breathtaking shoreline of St. Thomas’ scenic North side, the course provides an opportunity to experience our island’s amazing wildlife – from iguanas, mongoose, white-tailed hawks, and pelicans to the seasonal migrations of humpback whales, you’re sure to have a memorable sighting to share with your friends and family.

Despite its friendly length of just over 6,000 yards, Mahogany Run yields par-70 grudgingly...players that exchange distance for accuracy will be richly rewarded. Perhaps most awe-inspiring, the course includes the world famous Devil’s Triangle, a three hole stretch sure to challenge the best of players. Included in the Devil’s Triangle is the par-3, 14th hole situated 200 feet above a rocky inlet of the Atlantic Ocean and offering breathtaking views of the neighboring U.S. and British Virgin Islands – an experience not soon forgotten.

Open 7 days a week, Mahogany Run Golf Course caters to the traveling guest by offering complete equipment rental packages, including new sets of the latest Taylor Made clubs (available in right or left handed for men, women, and seniors), as well as new FootJoy golf shoes, towels, and name brand balls.

Renting a Car is Recommended.

Other activities: kayaking, parasailing, paddle boarding, boating, day cruises, shopping.

Charlotte Amalie is the capital of Duty Free shopping. It's approximately a 30 minute drive.

About Dave & Lynn

Having lived in Colorado for over 37 years, we set out to find a beach property that we would want to come back to year after year. Our search started in 2007. We scheduled a trip in April, 2013 to St. Thomas/Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina booking one of the properties using Home Away. We walked onto the beach that was just 20 feet away from our outdoor sitting area. My husband said "I think we just found what we have been looking for". We hope you enjoy our new beach home as much as we do! Our goal was to think of everything so you want for nothing as our guests.

Dave & Lynn purchased this condo in 2013

Why Dave & Lynn chose East End

This is the most beautiful secluded beach we have ever seen in all of our travels. We wanted property in the US and it does not get any better than this. Walk a few steps from the condo & you can do some amazing snorkeling. There are two coral reefs. The sands are pure white.

What makes this condo unique

Walking the beach morning & night, beautiful sunsets, afternoon rains, iguanas, crystal clear, warm water, beautiful fish, not crowded, 2-tier infinity pool that is framed on all sides by the ocean (see pictures). Take a day trip on one of the sailboats docked at the marina there on the property. St. John's is a quick 10 minute ferry ride.

St Thomas - The most beautiful place we've ever been to

  • 5 of 5

Where do we even start with this review. Everything about our stay here was 5 stars! Hands down the best place to ever go on vacation. The condo we stayed in was very well taken care of and the owners have incredible pride of ownership. Sitting on the patio and listening to the waves on the beach was absolutely stunning. The water at Sapphire Beach was the most beautiful water I have ever seen. Crystal blue. We would highly recommend renting this gorgeous unit at Sapphire Beach in St Thomas. My husband and I will for sure go back and rent this unit again. They even had snorkeling equipment in the unit for the guests to use. That's a huge perk! The beach here offers shade or sun, your choice, and the beach attendant will even put your beach chair out for you in the morning and put them away in the evening. The amenities inside this unit were modern and very comfortable for our stay. The air conditioning in this unit was superb and very refreshing after a hot day on the beach. The evening was very peaceful on the patio with the cool ocean breeze coming off the water. If you are looking for a once in a lifetime experience, we highly recommend renting Dave & Lynn's gorgeous unit.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Have enjoyed staying at Sapphire Beach every year now. Always look forward to our stay and the beautiful beach, right at our doorstep. We stayed in two different condos this year and would highly recommend either one. They are clean and well-cared for with every convenience.

The owners have always been a pleasure to work with and give recommendations for food shopping and dining out. We were also pleased to see the new beach bar that serves limited, but excellent food. See you next year!

Fabulous Vacation on the best beach on St. Thomas!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at B-209 could not have been more perfect! As we drove our rental car (on the left side of the road) which was no big deal, we encountered some pretty heavy traffic near Price Smart. We ended up circling around and going back into to town to drive the coastal route from Charlotte Amalie to Red Hook and we were pretty surprised at the state of the island with lots of homes in disrepair, old junk cars and trash everywhere and trash even spilling out of dumpsters onto the street in some areas. We were wondering what we had gotten ourselves into until we arrived at the cute little town of Red Hook. Just a mile or so past Red Hook, we found the lovely Sapphire Beach Marina and Condos. The condos were nicely landscaped and the wood has been refinished. Our condo is across a little bridge and just half a flight upstairs from the parking lot so it provided easy access to bring in our luggage from the car.

What a spectacular view! It really was the best view on the whole island. The condo was clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed (blender, coffee maker, filters, toaster, wine bottle opener, pots and pans, utensils (both metal and plastic), dishes and wine glasses. The king sized bed with a tempurpedic style topper was super comfortable. There are 4 towel sets and also 2 beach towels provided. There are 4 sets of snorkel gear with fins, noodles, and a little cooler. The wifi worked perfectly. Scott is a perfect gentleman who is right downstairs between B and C buildings that will put your beach chairs wherever you want them. There is also a Cabana with food service during the day right between B and C buildings. If you look the right off the balcony you will see them. They are not noisy or intrusive at all. We bought local fish at Moe’s Market and cooked our meals at home-we didn’t want to leave our spectacular view.

The condo's residents were very quiet- no loud parties or any disturbances all week. Three cruise ships came to bring passengers on two of our days-the beach got busy but was never crowded. The water is the PERFECT temperature and the best part is that the best snorkeling reef is just off the beach right in front of your condo! You are literally swimming with fish within 20 feet of the shore in front of C Building.

We took the car ferry to St. John for $50 round trip right in Red Hook and had a wonderful tour of St. John.

We can't wait to return!

Beautiful, Peaceful, and Easily Accessible!

  • 5 of 5

Dave, Lynn, and property manager Jeanne could not have been more accommodating! The condo was well decorated, sunny, and comfortable not to mention the million-dollar views from your deck. Snorkeling steps from the condo I was able to see stingray, turtles, an octopus, cuttlefish and more! The condo was well equipped with all the kitchen essentials, plenty of towels, snorkel gear, hangers in the closet, and keyless entry. I wish all vacation rentals had this entry system - so much less stress about forgetting keys! I felt safe inside Sapphire Beach Resort - the guards were very friendly. Greeting everyone on the island with a smile accompanied by a "Good morning!", "Good Afternoon!" or "Good Evening!" will go a long way. I wouldn't hesitate to rent Dave and Lynn's condo again or recommend it to a friend.

Very nice corner unit with a large deck on the second floor.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this studio. Comfortable king size bed, wi-fi, snorkel equipment, many upgrades including a nice shower floor guaranteed not to slip, 2 flat screen TV's, etc. Right on the water with great views of other islands. great clear water for swimming or to snorkel. Very safe complex and this unit is right in the middle. We would not hesitate to go back and rent this unit again. The pool is very nice and individuals were around it all day long. Some complaints about the food area being boarded up. We felt that this was fine as it was nice and quiet verse a rowdy bar crowd.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just what we needed. Everything clean and in good condition. Very roomy and comfortable for the two of us. We love the view from the balcony. We really like this Resort as the waters are calm enough for good swimming and the breach in front of the units is so nice having the trees at the edge of the water and the palms scattered. You can always find shade if you want it. It felt completely safe. If you looked out any evening you could see the Security walking the area. Beach chairs were always available and put out for you by very friendly staff. We would definitely recommend this condo and look forward to returning.
