About Mel & Nadine Spelde

Nadine and I retired in 2000 and spent the next 10 years living and traveling full time in our motor coach(s). After 250,000 miles on 5 coaches and another 250,000 miles on 3 cars we settled in the desert (La Quinta) of California until 2014 when we moved to St. Thomas. We remain avid travelers and mission field workers where our capacities meet the needs.

Mel & Nadine Spelde purchased this condo in 2014

Why Mel & Nadine Spelde chose USVI/St. Thomas

Nadine and I have been sailing the Virgin Islands for years and decided to spend some land time on St. Thomas and happened upon Sapphire Beach and simply fell in love with the property. It is clearly the best beach front property we have seen in our years of traveling around the world!

What makes this condo unique

This property is quiet, comfortable, steps from either the beach or the pool, has easy world wide access and has a huge number of recreational and dining choices.

Wonderful Family Christmas Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Sapphire beach is lovely! It is our second time coming to the island.

Our three children now know why we like it so much here.

The weather was a little windy for snorkeling, but we were entertained by all of the kite surfers on the beach.

Definitely take the opportunity to eat at the new restaurant SLICE! So good and something for everyone.

The new beach bar is also a great addition!!

I am an absolute beach lover and there was easy access to both the beach and the pool from this unit!! My family enjoyed the stay here and loved the views!! The construction in the next building did not impact us at all, but do wish they would do something with what looks like it's supposed to be a bar in the pool area. This was our 3rd year back to St. Thomas and it gets better every time!!! There was a bit of a hiccup with the AC in the unit leaking, it worked but trying to keep the leak cleaned up and controlled was a bit of an inconvenience. In spite of this little issue Mel and Nadine were completely helpful and determined to do everything possible to rectify the situation, make us as comfortable as possible and went above and beyond to make sure that at the end of our stay we were happy and satisfied. If we do not venture elsewhere and return to St. Thomas I will be reserving the unit for our vacation next year!!! Thank you Mel and Nadine for your hospitality and a great stay!!

Owner's Response: Shannon and family were great! Sadly the a/c condensate drain failed and repairman determined the hall ceiling would have to be removed to resolve the matter. The family decided they could deal with the leak until they left and we compensated them for their inconvenience. We try so hard to make sure that everything is perfect for our guests, but sometimes despite our best efforts stuff happens. We are pleased the family recognized our efforts and glad they enjoyed their stay and will return.

Just adequate

  • 2 of 5

Having "resort" in the name of this property is very misleading. It is strictly a condominium complex with zero amenities. The private pool and beach were fine if you could look passed the old, abandoned structure that used to be a restaurant/snack bar. Oh and the constant drilling and construction during the day was pretty disturbing.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that Janine did not find our Sapphire Beach condo to meet her expectations. We spoke beforehand about the improvement project underway and even offered to totally refund her money right up to the beginning of her stay. Sapphire is NOT a resort and we make no claim to such in our listing, but it IS an amazing place to stay RIGHT on the water and our recently remodeled two story condo has been well received by our guests as you can see from the other reviews.

The perfect place on the Water!

  • 5 of 5

I am a fellow owner at Sapphire and rented this amazing unit for 10 days while I was doing some work on my condo. Truly a wow! Mel and Nadine are so helpful and the place is in amazing shape. They know how to be hospitable and are keeping their condo in perfect shape. I really enjoyed the amazing views of St. John and the other islands. The sunrise in the morning was my daily highlight! I strongly endorse this unit as one of the perfect stays on Sapphire Beach. I am sure all guests of Mel and Nadine will always be satisfied.

Owner's Response: Peter & Linda we welcome you as neighbors and friends and thank you for your kind words describing our condo. It truly is an awesome view and place to wake up to the soft sounds of the ocean and birds and the incredible sunrise. We spend a lot of time at Sapphire and wouldn't think of missing the sunrise with our coffee. We were delighted to have you and will always welcome you or your friends who need a place to stay at Sapphire.

Beautiful Views, right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five, two adults and three children under 12, stayed here for two weeks. I was impressed by the quality of the condo...beautiful decor, updated bathrooms, nice kitchen with stove-top and convection oven and big fridge! The upstairs bedroom is really big and has a king size bed and pull out couch. It had everything you could need dishes, pots and pans, spices, etc. The best part was the view and the easy beach location. Both the upstairs and downstairs had a patio overlooking the ocean and pool. What a view! My only negative might be that I wished there was a bigger outdoor table on the patio to be able to eat outside as family. There is a two top table but with a family of five we needed to eat inside. I did, however, enjoy my coffee or wine morning and evening on that patio! Sapphire beach was really beautiful. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Sapphire and our condo. It sounds like you took full advantage of what the unit and the St. Thomas has to offer. We are sorry that our patio table was not large enough to accommodate your family. We had a larger table that was damaged by a previous guest and replacement furniture is very difficult and time consuming to acquire. We promise to have this rectified soon. We hope that you will return again soon.

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in Mel and Nadine's Sapphire Beach condo. The condo has been remodeled very nicely and we loved having 2 balconies. The beach was not too busy and were able to snorkel with the gear provided in the condo. We ate out in nearby Red Hook some and cooked at home some. It was fantastic and Mel & Nadine were prompt and helpful when we had questions.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind remarks. We know that people plan sometimes for years to vacation in St. Thomas and we want to do everything we can for them to enjoy the experience. We are so glad you chose us for your accommodations and hope you will return again soon.
