★★★★★ 5 stars by Pattii

The view from the condo balcony was even more stunning than the picture! With the balcony doors open or closed you can hear the waves crashing onto the beach. The balcony also has a view of the pool. The condo was clean and included convenient items like paper towels and bottle openers. Check in and check out was not traditional however it was very easy.

★★★★★ 5 stars by Marietta

Had a (short but) wonderful stay at this unit! We've stayed at one of the Sapphire Beach properties maybe 3 or 4 times, and this was easily the nicest place we've stayed in - recent renovation was excellent! That way, we never have to worry about tracking sand in from the beach, and can feel safer leaving the AC off, and the balcony screen door open to listen to the surf all night. We bought breakfast supplies at a Red Hook grocery store, and ate out for all other meals, but would not hesitate to cook in the well equipped kitchen if we were there for a longer visit. Thank you! Would love to stay here on our next visit.

★★★★★ 5 stars by Kate

We enjoyed our mornings and looking at St. John. Beautiful, spotless and newly renovated condo on the one of the best snorkeling Sapphire Beach. You have a feeling that you are at a five start hotel, where everything is new starting from beach towels to the bedding and furniture. Gorgeous renovated bathroom and kitchen. This condo is very conveniently located. I recommended this property to all my friends and acquaintances as the best place for amazing family vacation.


All units at the resort are individually owned. You will stay at the residential condo like at home without a daily maid service. Note when looking for similar accommodations - the furnishings and conditions of the units can vary WIDELY. Our unit is a spacious, fully remodeled condo, where you can leave the wide sliding glass doors open and listen to the ocean all day/night long. You will feel like being in Paradise.

About Sapphire Vacations

We are a couple live and work as engineer and designer in New York City. We frequently vacationed in Caribbean islands for over a decade and decided to own our own vacation home.

As with our previous purchase of Villa in 2013 ( VRBO LISTING NO.821560 ), we tried our best to remodel modern feel to this new condo. I hope you would enjoy and share this amazing beauty with us. We would like to take a moment to say 'thank you' for choosing our home away from home at Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina on St. Thomas. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments along the way. Thank you for your consideration.

Beautiful apartment on SAPPHIRE Beach with perfect view of St. John island!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this amazing apartment in one of the nicest condo units on St Thomas as far as we could see from our various boat trips to some of the close-by islands. The apartment is very well maintained, modern furniture, a couch on the patio, fully equipped kitchen, very nice bathroom and shower. SAPPHIRE Beach resort has its own beach bar with live music on Sundays and Holidays, good burgers and beer and a selection of mixed drinks.

We stayed for 10 days and went into close-by Red Hook almost every day for dinner or diving excursions. The Red Hook Diving center has great diving services and came recommended by our host. On the beach, Mangrove trees provide shade. Beach chairs are provided for free, just log your condo number. Other water sports equipment is available for rent. We had a great time in this really nice apartment!

Perfect Spot for Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four nights here is February and were very happy with the condo location and condition. Very close to Redhook which means easy access to the ferry and lots of restaurants, including a couple of our favorites; Fishtails and XO Bistro.

The condo is recently redecorated and in great shape. The view from the porch is spectacular and there is a wonderful beach with snorkeling from shore. We had some travel delays due to weather in Boston and Bianca and Paul were very flexible and accommodating in helping us extend our stay by a day.

Great place to stay.

Beautiful sapphire beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The condo had room for 2 adults and 2 kids. The beach is beautiful and good snorkeling there. There is pool available, it is unfortunate that the bar / grill by pool is boarded up and perhaps destroyed in storm...I hope they fix it up. The condo is in good shape and Bianca was available for any questions. The power goes out often which was a challenge for us the night it lasted 2 hours. Thankfully there were 2 flashlights available in the bathroom. The kids loved putting dog bones in water on beach to attract fish.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed 3 nights. Comfortable, well equipped unit overlooking beach and pool. Great views of St John from balcony. Red Hook is nearby- drive or take bus or cab- good restaurants and grocery stores. Excellent pizza (mission fig!) an easy walk away.

Bianca was in touch with us to make sure everything was OK. Other than one of the 2 TVs not working the unit was in good shape.

Condo complex itself is in need of care. Pool bar is closed and in shambles. Restaurant also closed, and doesn't look like it will reopen anytime soon.

Owner's Response: Our condo is right on the beach and TV's are first to go. Sometimes, things get broken. All solved, second TV is getting replaced. We have two :) Our resort went through amazing three years of revival and you can see it everywhere. All buildings, except F building are totally renovated and marina as well. New beach bar is opened and we hope the pool bar will be open as well soon. Come and enjoy staying with us :) All pictures are real and guests are saying that in reality, views are even better...

Very clean and nice.

  • 4 of 5

Nice place and very clean. Views were perfect. My only minor complaint is the dish soap and hand soap that was provided was like water. Very water down. But that's minor. I would definitely stay here again.
