About the property

Luxurios Upscale Studio Waterfront Condo

Imagine relaxing and soaking in this 180 degree view from this extraordinary top floor end unit condo!

A place were times stands still. Unwind in paradise where the soothing sounds will lull you to sleep in this luxurious king sized bed. Wake to a brilliant vista of the sparkling turquoise waters. Imagine enjoying coffee on the Balcony and getting lost daydreaming into the views.

Enjoy your sun drenched days at the beach then return to your spa like walk in tiled shower with pebble stone floor for a soothing shower. You will enjoy the convenience of the large granite top dressing vanity as your get ready for a night out on the town for a scrumptious dinner. Good cuisine is nearby in Red Hook were you will find an array of wonderful restaurants to choose. If your tired and don't feel like dinner out, no worries the Sapphire Grill is across from the condo at the main complex pool. Your condo accommodations also offers a new kitchenette should you desire to fix your own meals. If you are fitness enthusiast as I am, you will enjoy the diversity of options to keep fit while on holiday. There is a wonderful 1/4 mile cardio loop within the Sapphire Village Resort community. Enjoy swimming laps in one of the two community fresh water pools, or travel the short distance down the road to Sugar Bay Journey Day Spa and Fitness Center ( modest fee required ) for a more extensive workout or massage.

You can easily get around by renting a Jeep or car for your stay week at the airport or take the public 'dollar ride' known by locals as the 'Safari'.

If you enjoy snorkeling or open water diving St Thomas offers a unique diversity of reef and wreck dives in addition to a wide spectrum of colorful marine life to keep you enthused. There are many beaches that offer World class beach dives, and snorkeling without going on a boat! I suggest a sunset sailboat cruise or a day trip to St John or the British Virgin Island. Charter boats, and Jet skis rentals are available from the Sapphire Marina. Enjoy the US National Park and beaches of St John. You are just a 1/2 mile from the ferry terminal located in Red Hook.

Everything is literally at your fingertips!

Experience the Caribbean in style.... Book your vacation today! 3 night minimum, 21 night maximum rental.

Beautiful Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo in mid-January 2017. It was beautiful and comfortable. Perfect location to access pool, restaurant and beaches. Perfectly decorated and nice space. The owner and hospitality manager were very helpful and made contact with us in advance and once we had arrived to make sure everything was good. Would highly recommend this condo. We will be returning to St. Thomas soon and will rent this condo again!! Thank you for a lovely experience!

Made our vacation great!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this unit due to condition, location and amenities. I booked this unit at the last minute when my original accommodations fell through and was very pleased with the friendliness of the owner and the liaison person in St Thomas. The booking process was very easy and I felt secure with the detailed instructions that were sent directly to me email.

When we arrived at the condo it was clean and very comfortable. The view is amazing and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the boats and feeling the breeze each morning while we had breakfast. The unit is located directly across from the community pool, small grill and shop. The pool was very clean and the residents were welcoming and provided good conversation and many suggestions for activities in the area. The location is perfect as it is close to Red Hook where there is shopping, dining and the ferry to St John. We also took a boat trip on The Breakaway which sails from the marina right outside this unit. The unit is stocked with chairs, a cooler, and misc items that made it feel like home. I had never been to USVI but after visiting this unit I know this will be top on my list of vacation destinations. I would also recommend having a rental car as it really made it enjoyable to see a lot of the island and not have to wait for the bus or have the expense of taking taxis.

Great Value, Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Upon arriving at our condo, we experienced everything we expected as shown in photos on the VRBO website. The place was clean and updated. The decor was cute and, most of all, the view was beautiful from our balcony! We loved watching the ships leave every morning while having our breakfast. Every evening the party ships and fishermen would return. Convenient for taking an excursion and walking home after! We did the Double Header fishing and Breakaway charters tours and they both were top notch.

Also, the main pool is right out the back door from the condo. It has a modest bar and restaurant. It is also an easy walk to Sapphire beach - beach towels and beach chairs are provided.

Rita, the property manager, was available anytime and checked in a couple times over e-mail to make sure we had what we needed. The WiFi was nice to have, too.

Nice Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice place to stay. Great view out off the balcony and the condo was nicely updated. Short walk to the beach where you can rent snorkeling equiptment and other watersport activities. Snorkeling was surprisingly good right on sapphire beach when the water is calm. There are some charters that take off right out of the marina. We took one of them to tour the BVI and it was great (breakaway). Overall a nice vacation spot, and close to red hook.

Just as Presented!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back after ten days in this very well done condo. The view is great and also very entertaining watching the fishing charters come and go and unloading/cleaning the catch. There is a local bird that waits at the entry for them to return and hops on the boat as soon as they enter the harbor to eat any scraps. You would not think it was a wild bird and it gets a lot of pictures taken of it. Also watching the very nice yachts and sailboats go in and out can be entertaining. There is a sailboat called Night Wind in the harbor that does a great trip with full sails to St John to snorkel. It is great to just walk down and hop an board. I snorkeled all of both St Thomas and St John and Sapphire Beach was as good or better than any of them.

The on site restaurant is way too expensive in my opinion, $19 for fish and chips?!? As others have pointed out the Off the Grid food truck is good and a deal. $12 for a pound of hot smoked meat that will feed two easy or all you can eat for $15. The Tap & Still in Red Hook does great burgers for just $7 for a single but take it home as the drinks are expensive. The local Subway is also good even for breakfast. Food at the grocery stores is very expensive and can making dining out not so bad. I rented a car from Avis and saved money by picking it up downtown rather than at the airport. You are allowed to return it to the airport though so just one cab ride when you arrive at a cost of $12. I saved well over a hundred dollars. I found driving on the islands no problem and St John roads are even better for the most part. It is critical to remember to stay between the lines though as the road at times can drop two feet right at the edge. Stay between the lines, watch for potholes and speed bumps! No need for four wheel drive in my opinion, I had a Toyota Yaris and got around great. Actually the smaller the car the better.

The staff for the condo property are less than helpful in my opinion but Rita for the unit is always very responsive. Remember the code to the lock box and test it just in case you forget your key as the condo staff charge a $50 fee to get you back in.

I should also point out that the owner was very easy to work with and making the payment was no problem at all.

Not only will I stay here again if in the area but will highly recommend it to everyone I know!

Owner's Response: The Sapphire Village Condominium office has NOTHING to do with any rental unilt in the complex. They post a note on the office door instructing all visitors, if there are any problems, to contact the owner or liaison manager for the property. The lock box on the door is NOT intended as a storage place for the keys to the unit. After getting into the unit, maintaining possession of the keys inside the unit becomes the responsibility of the guest. If the guest uses the lock box to store the keys and the lock box malfunctions, getting the SV office to open the door and the associated charge becomes the responsibility of the guest. Integrity regarding the facts of an incident on initial presentation to the liaison goes beyond common courtesy. Sapphire Village Condominium complex is a friendly place to stay, however, guests have to be responsible with the unit keys.
