**ALL GOOD FROM THE RECENT HURRICANES...we are taking reservation and our condo was undamaged.

From your first sight of sapphire beach resorts you will know your at a special place where you can play or just relax and unwind.

Our condominium's location is considered one of the prime spots within the resort. Located right on the beach & only a few footsteps away from the multi-tiered pool and ocean. The condominium offers spectacular views of st. John's United States Virgin Islands & the British Virgin Islands.

In the evening, sit out on your private patio with someone special and watch St John's come to life or head to town and party with the locals. Please read our wonderful reviews and then come see for yourself why everyone loves our place and why we consider it Paradise!

Imagine yourself on a beautiful Caribbean island far away from all distractions of everyday life. You may choose to start your day lying on the beach with a tropical drink in hand and cool trade winds brushing your side. From there you may simply meander to a spot by the pool, or take a dip in the warm waters off Sapphire Beach and do some snorkeling with turtles, tropical fish, and rays. Or, you may choose to simply sit out on the deck and catch up on some reading and occasionally glimpse out to catch the beautiful views of the turquoise Caribbean waters, world-renowned white-sand Sapphire Beach, St. John, and Tortola. This is all before you head out to do some water sports at the onsite Sapphire Beach Marina, world-class shopping, or other island activities.

This dream can become a reality when you stay at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina.

Take in the breathtaking views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean and the surrounding islands from your private patio. Relax and enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning and your favorite beverage in the evening while watching the boats come in and out of the marina. The pool is located just steps away from our condo!

Our cozy condo is the perfect place to get away from it all. With a king sized bed and a queen sized Basset sleeper sofa, a newly remodeled bathroom, along with a work station, kitchen and the beach at our door step you will never want to leave.

Clean, comfortable private corner unit with enough activity for entertainment and plenty of quiet for your enjoyment.

Whether you crave excitement or relaxation Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina is the perfect location!

Our condo is located beach level in D building, just a few steps away from our multilevel cascading freshwater pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea and the beach!

First rule is to relax and enjoy. I suggest copious amount of sunscreen and chill time and hydration fluids served alongside good food. Beach is a 1500 foot stroll with no traffic to contend with.

Our beautiful condo has recent renovations and is tastefully decorated with the conveniences of home -equipped kitchen with convection/microwave oven, glass cook top, coffee maker, toaster, blender, full size refrigerator and all the utensils and pans that you can ever need to feel like cooking at home! In order to bring home to you, we also provide all the basic spices- salt, pepper, garlic powder, condiments, coffee filters, sweeteners and creamer.

To make it really fun, we also equipped our patio with a George Foreman grill!

Our newly renovated bathroom, with a stoned tiled shower and double sink awaits you stocked with plush bath towels, beach towels, hotel sized soaps, shampoos, conditioner, bath gel and a hair dryer all!

The bedroom area includes a beautiful king size bed (which has the most beautiful view- in the back you can see the beach), flat screen TV, DVD. The living area has the most comfortable sofa pull out bed queen size bed and of course, a second flat screen TV. The living area also has a teak dining set and a dining table for four which overlooks to the amazing views from the patio! Being a corner unit our condo has the advantage and at the same time gives you the opportunity to see the beach from two sides!

But the best part of our condo is our comfortable hammock located on our patio from where you enjoy both beaches from our resort!

We equip the place with 3 snorkel gear, beach chairs, outing coolers , beach floats and noodles!

Snorkel, wind-surf, floats and sea kayaks are available steps away at the Dive-in dive shop. Go to on-site Marina to take a boat or wave runner out!

Award winning snorkeling, the marina and water sports are only footsteps away from this condo in paradise. Take the ferry to St. John or a day trip to the BVI.

The resort itself is located on one of the world's most beautiful Caribbean beaches. The resort is right on the beach- the beautiful Sapphire Beach, shaded with palms, and majestic in its beautiful jewel-toned water from aquamarine water near the beach to deep sapphire blue in the distance. There are two beaches on the property-half-mile white sandy beach and coral beach. If you like snorkeling, you will have chance to see not only Caribbean fish, but also see turtles and sting ray. All this from our beach!

There is also a multilevel cascading freshwater pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea. Also you can relax while watching the boats coming in and out of the marina.

Enjoy complimentary beach chairs (ask attendant), beach towels and snorkeling gear available in the unit. Other beach activities available in on-site water sport center include snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and sunset sailing. Also you can take a charter to the BVI or deep sea fish. Sunset cruises or day sailing adventures are available. Day sail over to St. John, and Trunk Bay. You can cruise a catamaran to Jost Van Dyke in the BVI, and the famous Soggy Dollar Bar. Also if you wish you can take a speedboat to Virgin Gorda and The Baths.

Sapphire Beach is located on the east end of the island five minutes from Red Hook. Red Hook provides all conveniences and grocery shopping, along with many additional dining options. Ferry service to St. John and the British Virgin Islands is also available from Red Hook.

ABOUT THE SAPPHIRE BEACH RESORT AND MARINA:

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina (SBRM) is the only property that is located right on the Sapphire Beach. It is considered a residential condominium property at an awesome location. Our condo is in the 'D' building, on the beach.

ABOUT THE ISLAND OF ST. THOMAS: The condo is located on the East End of St. Thomas, USVI.

Sapphire beach is known for its pristine marine life, white sand beach and breathtaking views of turquoise Smith Bay. St. Thomas is a 32-square mile island in the Caribbean. It boats world famous beaches and duty free shopping.

Sapphire beach is half a mile turquoise sandy beach where you enjoy all your water sports or you can relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of the ocean waves on the white beach, or if you want to shop. The capital of Charlotte Amalie has what you are looking for. This deep water port, home to cruise ships from around the world, is known for its duty free shops with jewelry, electronics, liquor, perfumes, purses and plenty more.

The USVI offers the perfect combination of history, stunning Caribbean nature and opportunities to explore all the Virgin Islands to make the most of your vacation in the USVI. On St. Thomas, you'll want to make sure and visit downtown Charlotte Amalie for historic sites including restored 17th Century Warehouse, The 99 Steps' leading up to Blackbeard's Tower, Bluebeard's Castle, the Seven Arches Museum, or Fort Christian Museum which was built in 1672 and is the oldest building in St. Thomas.

GETTING AROUND:

You can catch a taxi to and from resort beaches. Other beaches can be accessed by taxi however you may need to arrange return pick-up. Public transportation is an option for some. Beach hopping by rental car is super easy; the East End beaches are all within 2-10 minutes driving time from each other.

You can also rent a car at the airport or Sapphire Beach. A car is certainly no necessary but handy. You won't put many miles on your car, but it will save time. The cars travel on the left side of the road, so be careful if you rent one. Of course the island has plenty of taxis

Taxis are available at the taxi site on site.

THINGS TO DO: This condo boats prime beachfront location next to the pool. Convenient location; less than one mile from Red Hook shops, grocery stores, restaurants, and car/passenger ferry dock to St. John and BVI's.

For breakfast, lunch or beach drinks, there is even a bar/grill located on the property which serves tropical refreshments as well as hamburgers, hot dogs and special Caribbean Drinks. New lunch-time Beach Bar Sapphire just opened on the beach close to the Dive Shop featuring the beast ma-hi ma-hi sandwich and live band music on Sunday's. Another great restaurant/bar is at the neighboring 'green roof' condominium resort, a short 5-min walk above the marina.

Currently on property there is a snack bar "Banana Cabana"- located between B and C buildings serving hot dogs, hamburgers and lots of sandwiches along with a variety of drinks- cold drinks, cocktails, etc.

If you' want to stay indoor Domino & Señor Pizza is a phone call away and will deliver right to your room. Inside of our condo we have menus from other local restaurants!

Washer and dryer about 80 feet away alongside the property office. Buy tokens/soap at the office during business hours, laundry is always open.

Free parking permit must be obtained from office during business hours if you have a rental car.

Interaction with Guests

I am available by phone for any questions or concerns regarding the condo and will respond promptly. I have a maintenance man nearby if a repair were needed. Easy to rent and not to want to leave!

If you like to travel with family, we can open the patio doors between the units and so you can enjoy the large patio of both units together!

Please call us anytime, if you are interested

Beautiful place - owner was warm and friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay at Sapphire Beach. It was just steps away from the pool and beach. The condo was newly renovated and very tasteful and cozy.

Sapphire Beach

  • 3 of 5

We only stayed at this condo for two days, and that was long enough. While the location was beautiful, the overall property was in disrepair and looked run down, except for the pool. I don't know if it was because we were there in the "off" season. The condo was nice, especially the renovated bathroom, except for the broken towel rack. The kitchen had just about everything you need, lots of condiments, but no kitchen towels or dish brushes. I washed our dishes with a bath towel. The bed was comfy, but overall the condo seemed dark and heavy. It needs to be brightened up, did not have airy "Caribbean" feel. The hallway light was out, so you could not see into the closets. The outside patio was very nice, with great views of the water, but bad views of the closed beach bar right in front. However, it was quiet since that was closed, a positive! Mihaela was pleasant to work with, and had we stayed longer I would have contacted her about light fixture and kitchen towels, I am sure she would have addressed these issues. The condo had close proximity to Red Hook restaurants, and the ferry to St. John, which was very convenient. The resident iguanas were fun to watch!

Nice location, great service

  • 5 of 5

We like this resort, very good for the price on St. Thomas. Wonderful responsive service from Mihaela when we called her at the last minute (7:30pm the night of) to see if room was available. This unit has been nicely updated.

This is the best place that I saw to stay on St Thomas

  • 5 of 5

The condo was only steps from the ocean as advertised. We enjoyed our time at the condo just as much as our excursions. Take advantage of having morning coffee on the patio and watching the sunrise over St John. The iguanas and ducks will come and visit you right there on the patio. You're on Sapphire Beach, groceries are only a 10 minute drive away, ferry to St John is only a 5 minute drive, and Sapphire Marina is a 1 minute walk. If I go back to St Thomas, we will stay in this condo again based on our experience there.
