About the property

1 Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

I've been an owner here at Sapphire Village for ten years, but this gem is a new studio for me, purchased Nov.26th 2014, located in the St. Maarten Building at Sapphire Village. It is the second building on the left when you enter the property. It is on the third,top, floor, 525 sq. ft. studio with a patio, plenty of room for a couple. Besides the comfortable queen size bed, the couch folds out to a full size with a very comfortable and sturdy air mattress for your comfort. There is also a dinner table and chairs set. The unit has a new shower. A small kitchen includes a refrigerator, stove/oven, and microwave, a toaster, coffee maker, blender, along with some new pans, dishes, etc. The unit has a blow dryer, iron, brand new linens and bedding, and two sand chairs. The unit has air conditioning and three ceiling fans.We are very fortunate to have our own restaurant, opened for lunch and dinner daily, steps from the unit. Sapphire Village also boast two pools, one right next to the restaurant.

Steps from the studio is Sapphire Beach, a gorgeous beach with, of course, sapphire blue crystal clear water. You can see colorful tropical fish, peaceful sea turtles, and graceful rays when you snorkel right off the beach. At the beach, the girls at the Banana Cabana keep things loose and tasty. The trade winds, perfect temperature, and glorious water make you feel like you are in paradise!

At the Sapphire Beach Marina you can rent jet skiis, charter a fishing or snorkel day excursions, embark on a sunset cruise, or arrange to go parasailing!

Less than a mile from Sapphire Village is the town of Redhook. There, you can find a variety of restaurants, shops, grocery store, marina, and ferries to St. John and the British Virgin Islands (Passports needed for BVI)

St. Thomas has many attractions. In Charlotte Amalie there is everything from the straw market deals to the diamond and gold center. Havensight is also home to many duty-free shops. It is located at the heart of the cruise ship port of call. You must have a Caribbean drink at Mountain Top, with the cool shops and spectacular views.

There are many water activities and beaches on St. Thomas: Megan's Bay and Coki Beach to name a few. It's a lot of fun to take the ferry to St. John and visit for the day, many great beaches, shops, restaurants. Of course we are partial to our own Sapphire Beach, just down the hill from our unit.

About Donna Moody

I am a retired schoolteacher, relaxing and enjoying life. I live in seasonal Connecticut, but love to get away in the winter months to sunny St. Thomas.

Donna Moody purchased this condo in 2014

Why Donna Moody chose Estate Smith Bay

I have always loved tropical paradise and was so happy to learn of the condos at Sapphire Village. I purchased my first unit 10 years ago. I have most recently moved to a new unit with an even better view! This is the perfect spot for me: year round paradise in a safe and quiet adult community. I love it here! I've enjoyed the beautiful Sapphire Beach and Marina, steps from the unit, as well as the restaurants and fun in Redhook, minutes away. Also in Redhook, are ferries to other USVI and BVI. Great location! I couldn't be happier!

What makes this condo unique

Steps from the unit at Sapphire Beach, you will bask in the sun while the trade winds caress you. The water is a crystal clear sapphire blue, the perfect temperature, and the beach offers snorkeling coral reefs for fish and coral as well as sea grass pastures for sea turtles. After a heavenly day at the beach, walk back to the unit, shower, have a glass of wine, and enjoy the evening watching the boats come into the marina or at a bar/restaurant steps from the unit right at Sapphire Village...or you might hop on the safari ride to Redhook and have a pizza or delicious shrimp cocktail at Island Town Pub! Enjoy!!

Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this studio - the location, the amenities and the studio itself. The views are terrific. It was very clean with plenty of towels and beach towels, beach chairs, etc. We enjoyed the beach and the pool, taxi'd everywhere (it's about as close as you can get to Red Hook but there is no sidewalk on part of the trek there so I would not recommend walking into town - just take the jitney for a few dollars). I highly recommend Lindquist Beach, also close by and one of the best in STT. I would definitely return to this studio on another visit!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property is at a great location with a wonderful view. Just a short walk to the beach. The pool and restaurant on the property is awesome.

My sister says she slept better is this bed than her own bed. Comfy..

Furnishings are nice, perfectly placed Donna was extremely nice and meet our needs ten times considering we had to stay an additional night.

I will rebook here again. Loved all the islands, needed more time to see the rest of them. I'll be back.

This condo unit was as advertised. The owner provided all the necessary information for a wonderful vacation on St. Thomas. I would most certainly rent this unit in the future.

Perfect spot in Sapphire Village!

  • 5 of 5

Donna has a perfect spot here in the Village above the marina! Sitting on the balcony, looking out to the islands was so relaxing! She has thought of everything one would need for comfort during their stay. Tons of towels, beach chairs, kitchen amenities, toiletries, etc. Will definitely be looking to book here upon any future return to St. Thomas! The on-site restaurant, Slice VI, is a major selling point, too!
