About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 2-5; Full Kitchen; 50 Yards From The Beach


Whether you’re looking for a relaxing time at the beach, fun family activities, fine dining and shopping nearby, or some combination of these, you’ve found the perfect place to stay. Our ground-floor, one bedroom, two bathroom condo on beautiful Sapphire Beach has a fully-equipped kitchen, two fold-out sofa beds, and a magnificent view of St. John and the British Virgin Islands.

Step out front to the clean, white-sand beach where lounge chairs are provided, snorkeling equipment is available, and food and drinks can be delivered to you in the shade of sea grape trees. Out the back door are lighted tennis courts and a private swimming pool. This quiet, gated community with on-premise security offers privacy and protection yet is close to restaurants, shops, local attractions, and the ferry to other island destinations.

A five-minute walk takes you to the Sapphire Beach Marina, where you can arrange sailing, fishing, or snorkeling adventures, day trips down island, sunset dinner cruises, and jet ski rentals. Parking is just outside the back door. If you don't want to rent a car, taxis are easily called, or take the local safari-style bus that circles the island which stops at the end of the driveway.

Happy condo for a happy stay

  • 5 of 5

Rental was an entire condo- full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, etc.. Complex was well located- dollar bus at the door for transportation, good snorkeling, trees for shade on the beach.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo if you like to cook for yourself and enjoy a quiet beach. Very friendly and accommedating management. Make sure you tell the taxi at the airport you want to be dropped off at Crystal Cove West located next to Sapphire, not Sapphire resort and make sure they take you down the hill to the gate. Warning about the taxis at the airport; take one with others, not private. The cost for a private taxi is $90 vs approximately $20 with a group. It won't take much longer. This property is about 35 minutes from the airport on the East side of the island, so plan on being in the taxi for a nice drive.

My ONLY Choice when I go on vacation... 9 years...

  • 5 of 5

Crystal Cove is the Only place I go on vacation for the last 9 years and counting. I was even married there on "the point" 4 years ago and am eager to return this July. The locals are the best, the beach is effectively private... then not to mention Amber and Dianne there on the beach both brighter than the sun with their great smiles and willingness to help. They are as welcome an addition as the mango trees giving fresh fruit all day long. Spend hours there snorkeling or just enjoying the ebb and flow. Get there. See you in July

Just can't say enough about how beautiful the landscaping is around the grounds, the private beach was absolutely beautiful and the snorkeling right there was amazing! The Condo B-19 was in need of a couple small repairs, and needed updating, not nearly as nice as the pictures shown in the previews, so we were a little disappointed in that for the price. All that said, we would absolutely do it again!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This condo was perfectly located though a little outdated and in need of some updating. Having said that we were perfectly happy being able to access the beach and Red Hook quite easily and venturing out daily so only spent a short time in the condo itself. It really was good value for money.
