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 USVI/St. Thomas

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!!

What a great place

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic close to everything and has a view you won't believe, everything you need is there for you, the place was clean and the pictures do not do it justice. Your host Donna keeps you informed and was most helpful , I would certainly recommend anyone to contact Donna and book yourself a getaway at this great spot. Sapphire beach - snorkeling - parasailing - cruises - jet skis its all at your doorstep. Red Hook which has a great range of options for dining out and is just a short walk or $1.00 by local Safari. Thank you Donna we had a great holiday

Nice condo and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I like staying at Sapphire Village and this condo did not disappoint. Very clean and a nice location. I was a little concerned about the view with this unit not being directly over the marina but I was pleasantly surprised at how grand a view it is. The best part is not being directly over the marina. There was no noise from the tour boats starting early in the morning. I love Sapphire Village as its location cannot be beat. Close to Red Hook, the restaurants, ferry (easy access to St. John), Sapphire beach is basically right there, and if interested in doing an excursion the marina is right there. The snorkeling is fun and so convenient. Thank you for renting your condo. It is very nice.

Clean, safe, & affordable

  • 3 of 5

The unit nearly met my expectations - it was clean, in a safe area, affordable, and allowed me to be near other people I was traveling with. The wifi did not work and the owner didn't resolve the issue when I contacted her mid trip. I was not compensated for the lost amenity, which was annoying since I had counted on being able to use wifi.

Flight delays/cancellations prevented me from getting to the destination for 2 days and the owner was unsympathetic (which was disappointing since friends who I traveled with staying at unit in the same complex were given extra nights and welcome gift by their owner). I don't expect the owner to necessarily do anything, but I was certainly jealous of my friends who happened to work with an owner who went above and beyond their customer service obligation.

Nice accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

I found the unit exactly as described. It was clean, modern, and functional. Quiet, relaxing environment in this condo complex. Great view of marina and distant BVI’s from the balcony. These condos are built on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean, so be prepared for some uphill/downhill walking in the complex. Generally, all these islands are mountainous, so hills are part of the package. Owner responds quickly to any problems. Initially, there was a technical problem with the WiFi, texted Donna and she had it fixed within 24hrs. The laundry room is downstairs on the other side of the building beside the condo office. If doing laundry, you will need to buy tokens for the machines from the condo office. The office is only open during weekdays, not on weekends. Red Hook is the closest town, about a mile away down a steep hill with winding road and has several restaurants, bars, grocery store, and ferry to St John and other islands. I walked the road to Red Hook several times (both directions), but wouldn’t advise walking it due to fast moving traffic along winding roads with steep embankments and no sidewalk. Near the condo complex gate you can catch the Safari (local open air taxi) to Red Hook for a couple of bucks. However, Safari only goes in one direction so you will have to pay slightly more (around $6 per person) for the return trip to the condos.

as advertized

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from St Thomas. This was a very nice rental. The description and photos were accurate. The owner provided all necessary information. Access was easy. Sapphire beach is a good east end location for any activities. We enjoyed the balcony view the pools and on site restaurant. Recommended and would stay again.

Condo was immaculate and precisely as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Condo was immaculate and precisely as advertised. Well stocked kitchen, lots of towels, 2 beach chairs, lots of hangers, ice chest etc...location is perfect and beach is exquisite. Google "Sapphire in the sun webcam" to see a live picture of the beach. The beach has coral with lots of colorful fish just a few feet offshore and grassy areas with large turtles about 100 feet off shore. The beach bar is great.
