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.

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This condo was perfectly located though a little outdated and in need of some updating.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.

An Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our party of four stayed here for a week and had an amazing time. Red Hook is just a short taxi ride away for great food and entertainment. We were able to wake up each morning and step right onto the beach. Definitely a recommended vacation rental!

Exquisite Beach is Just Yards Away

  • 5 of 5

Imagine being steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Sapphire's clear aqua-colored water, white sand, and amazing view of tropical islands are there for you at sunset, sunrise, and all times in between---and the beach is private and uncrowded as well. Just being this close to this gorgeous beach makes it a superb vacation opportunity.

The condo is very comfortable. Having two full bathrooms is a big plus. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped. On St. Thomas you can really save money by having some meals at home. There is plenty of room for a family, and it's great for a couple also. The master BR is lovely and private, with lots of closet space.

Staying in the East End area is also great for avoiding the traffic of Charlotte Amalie, while having direct & easy access to St John trips, other beaches, snorkeling and boat hires. There's a good selection of restaurants nearby, as well as shopping and a gourmet food store.

The reason above all that I would highly recommend this vacation rental, is to be right next to the incredibly beautiful Sapphire Bay beach.
