Great host!

  • 5 of 5

Terrance is a terrific host. The condo association was performing repairs on the balcony and it looked like they wouldn't finish before our arrival. He reacted quickly and found us another unit to stay in a few days before our check-in. He's an example of what hosting is all about. What could have been a nightmare of a stay turned out to be just what we expected thanks to him.

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect. It was right near the restaurant (which we ate at twice) and the pool. My husband and I enjoyed the view of the marina. The beach was just a short walk. We took the safari buses all over the island but always returned via a taxi. The condo had everything we needed! A stocked kitchen was provided but we ate all our meals out. The restaurants are fabulous and so many to choose from! This is definitely the place to stay on St. Thomas. Thank you!

We loved our week at Sapphire Desire!

Sapphire Desire lived up to all expectations. The condo was beautiful and was an ideal location to visit anywhere on the island. We loved being at the marina. We hope to return soon

Paradise Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed the last week of April for our Anniversary. I can't say enough about this cozy little studio with amazing marina and island views. The unit has more than you will need, from the beach chairs and coolers to the bathroom linens and kitchen extras. Had a minor issue with a door handle breaking due to the salt air corrosion... emailed Stacy... and the next day it was fixed. Talk about quick responses. The bed was very comfortable and there were plenty of pillows and extra blankets if needed. In the email when you rent Stacy tells you to close the bathroom sliders at night if you have the AC on... don't over look this advice, it makes a huge difference plus it allows you to run the AC shorter.

The views are amazing as described. Nothing like sitting on the balcony having coffee early in the morning watching the boats leave the marina... could totally get used to island life living. We interacted with several of the residents in this building and on the Sapphire property and found all to be welcoming and knowledgeable.

Directly across the parking lot is a really nice pool and a little restaurant that serves very good cuisine, pizza, pub food... and the coldest beers we found on the island.

The new Sapphire Bar & Grill on the beach is awesome... you never have to leave the resort... even had live music a couple of afternoons. Make sure you check out the man on da beach... Thomas... can't miss him he hand makes cool things out of palms and coconuts, is very reasonable... and has some great stories of the islands.

Just want to say thanks to Terrance and Stacy for sharing your perfect slice of paradise with us.
