About the property

2 Level Condo, 2 Bathrooms, Directly On The Beach, Unbelievable Views

Blue Ocean View Villa, located directly on beautiful Sapphire Beach provides our guests with panoramic, breathtaking views of the Carribean Sea.

Located in the desirable 'D' building our villa is close to the pool, the more private beach and only a few steps more to the 'busier' beach.

The villa can sleep up to 7 guests by providing 1 king bed, 1 queen sofa sleeper, 1 new twin foldout bed and bathroom upstairs and 1 queen sofa sleeper and bathroom downstairs. There is a balcony on each level providing stunning views of St John, British Virgin Islands, the beach and the Sea. The balconies are the perfect place to drink your morning coffee or to enjoy your meals. We also provide a grill on the main balcony for our guests to enjoy.

The main level has been updated with new cupboards, granite countertops, new tile and the bathroom shower has been newly tiled. New bamboo blinds provide the option to close and sleep in or open to awaken to the sun rising. We prefer to have all the doors open for the natural trade winds as opposed to running the A/C but the option is yours to choose.

The updated kitchen is stocked with new pots and pans, dishes, ninja blender, and many spices.

Guests are provided beach towels for their stay and beach chairs are also free for our renters to use on the beach.

The dive shop, marina and beach restaurant The Banana Cabana are all located very near the condo.

Wifi is also provided free of charge to our guests, it can be somewhat unreliable at times but it is improving.

If this is your first visit to St Thomas we strongly suggest getting a ride to the condo from the airport. It will save you time and a fair amount of stress getting to the villa. settled. If you are feeling adventurous we can provide detailed instructions on getting to Sapphire Beach. .We have done our best to provide our guest with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. Sapphire is not an all inclusive 5 star resort but it will provide you with some of the most beautiful views and beaches you have ever seen and you will never want to leave.

We try our best to be available at all times to answer questions or help with problems during your stay.

We look forward to sharing our villa with you and we know you will love Blue Ocean View Villa at Sapphire Beach as much as we do.

If you are interested in a smaller unit we also have a studio available for rent

About Kurt and Michelle Mitthun

We first came to St. Thomas on a cruise in 2002. We fell in love with the island and come back at least twice a year(which isn't enough) since then. We have been to many places and we love St. Thomas and Sapphire beach the most.

Kurt and Michelle Mitthun purchased this villa in 2014

Why Kurt and Michelle Mitthun chose East End

There are many beautiful beaches in St Thomas but Sapphire is the best beach you can 'stay' on. You cant beat the view or the beach. Other resorts may have more amenities but if you want a great beach and relaxing place to stay Sapphire is for you.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy sitting on the balcony and drinking our morning coffee. It would be a very rare occasion for us to dine inside. We have every meal on the balcony, You have the choice to relax at the pool, enjoy the quiet beach to one side or the busier beach to the other side. You cant be disappointed.

Myrtle beach, sc

awesome ocean views!!

  • 5 of 5

You will not get a better ocean view anywhere else. i knew from decription and other reviews that this was not a true resort. if you want pampered, this is not for you. accommodations were perfect for my family of 5 (me, wife and 3 teenage kids). 1 king bed and 2 couch beds and roll out bed. 2 full bathrooms and full kitchen. The 2 ocean front balconies are unbelievable. I had my morning coffee every morning and was just in awe of the views. The pool was good for the kids and well maintained. chairs are provided beach front and even carried to location of choice by sapphire employee. we rented snorkel equipment for $10 per day and was awesome. The beach in front of condo is rocky but just a short walk down on property is wide and very nice. we ate one day at outside bar area and food was fantastic (burgers, saiad, sandwiches) and drinks tasty as well. The van (even tho nothing special) served our purpose and was a great addition to the rental. We used everyday and every evening. We did zipline, Megans Bay and shopping by cruise ships. We spent 2 days right at condo relaxing at beach. We ate nightly in Redhook, which has great restaurants. Red hook was literally 2 minute drive from condo. I thought driving on left side would be more challenging but was not. i downloaded waze app on phone, recommended by other reviewer and is a must. it is a gps that works awesome on island. took us to everywhere we needed go. Highly reccomend!!!!

Wonderful stay...expectations exceeded! Would love to return.

  • 5 of 5

This unit is top notch! Two stories of breath taking views, large balconies we enjoyed having breakfast and lunch on. Fully stocked kitchen, we made frozen drinks in the NINJA blender saved us $! Bed was comfy, we liked the 1st floor shower better than upstairs so we used that one. Nice breeze during day and at night, but if too hot we used the AC. The van was a major plus whether heading to the ferry, red hook, or just to Moes grocery it made the vacation so easy. Michelle was great any minor issue that came up she responded within a few minutes, always put our mind at ease knowing she was on top of everything. No major issues at all, there is construction, but with the views, beach, great snorkeling, who cares! The staff was so courteous and security on site was professional and made us feel safe at all times.

This place is a diamond in the rough, we've traveled all over...but for the price and quality this is just what we needed. It is impossible not to relax here. The pool could use some love, but so much potential for the grounds. Water was always warm, pool was clean and functional. Chairs were readily available at the beach, pool, or to watch the sunset. We got especially lucky when we chartered a boat and captain and the marina was 500 feet from Sapphire resort, we just walked over and went sailing for the day. Incredible. We ate at Tap & Still in Redhook twice loved the atmosphere and my husband couldn't get enough of the burger in the bag. We ate at Fishtales also good, island pizza good as well. In St. John we tried out Barefoot cowboy great brisket, and Rum Lines wonderful coconut shrimp and drinks were fresh and original! Loved our stay thank you for sharing your home with us. Very fun, relaxing, a trip to never forget!

Paradise...plain & simple! You can't ask for better views! It's absolutely gorgeous! It's everything you read about or have seen in pictures. And YES the water is that clear and blue :) The villa has everything you need and the balcony on both levels make it a priceless view. We traveled throughout the island but found Sapphire Beach the best! It has security at the entrance and the beach is private. We return in December for a longer visit and cannot wait. Thanks to Kurt & Michelle, the owners - they have your best interests at heart!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo and are excited to have you and your family back in December! I agree it is nice to have the security walking the beach. Although all beaches in St Thomas are public, it does help to keep Sapphire a little more private.

Amazing view!! Believe the hype!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is just as great as all of the reviews say and you get a complimentary mini van!! Think of how much you'll save by not having to rent a car or rely on taxis. Also, having the mini van allowed us to get out and explore the island on our own, instead of having to sit on a tour bus with a bunch of tourists. Loved this place and have been recommending it to all of our friends and family.

Oh, almost forgot to mention that the owners are very responsive and genuinely care about you having a great time while staying in their condo. Couldn't ask for better hospitality!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Bryan. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the car. Before we purchased vehicles for our condos we were left without a car for one of our trips because they frequently over rent them especially in busy season. We didn't ever want it to happen to us again or any of our renters!!

Just got back from our stay in St Thomas and we were not disappointed. Its truly a paradise there. Sapphire beach is beautiful and the villa we stayed in was equally as beautiful. It was updated and decorated nicely. The owners were very responsive every time we needed anything at all. Kathleen, their manager is very sweet and kind also. We had a great time and visited other beaches as well but preferred to be at Sapphire beach. This villa has 1 balcony on each level too. I really cant say enough. It was awesome. Thanks Kurt and Michelle for sharing your place!!

Excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in this 2 floor condo. The bedroom was very spacious, we loved the vaulted ceilings and 2nd balcony. It was perfect for the adults to have separation from the teenager at the end of a long day of snorkleing. Sapphire beach was beautiful as was the view of it from the balconies. It is so close to the water! The pool was close too. We wished there were more food options on property but Red Hook was a quick and easy drive for dinner in the evening (the van was a huge bonus). The condo was clean, we'll furnished and the owners were extremely responsive and helpful. Great place that we would definitely visit again.

Car: recommended

Blue Ocean View Villa is conveniently located a very short distance from Red Hook where you can do anything from picking up supplies, groceries,souvenirs or grab something to eat at one of the many restaurants. Some of our favorite places to eat in Red Hook are Duffys Love Shack, Molly Malones, and Senor Pizza (which also delivers to Sapphire). Red Hook is also where you catch the ferry if you want to head over to St John, (a must do trip), When you arrive in St John there are many places to shop and eat or you can just head to one of their beaches. We like Cinnamon Beach and Trunk Bay.
