About the property

2 Person Studio with Balcony Water Views! Gorgeous turquoise waters beckon you!

This 2 person studio condominium with full kitchen offers a luxury resort at non-resort prices. Kick back, relax, mix a drink and take in the wonderful views from the private balcony while you listen to the music of the islands. About 100 feet away from the condo is a lovely freshwater pool. A new restaurant Slice VI Craft Pizza and Cafe has opened next to the pool and has received some very good reviews (it is closed on Mondays until the Fall 2017). For some beach style cocktails and sandwiches take a 5 minute walk to Sapphire Beach where you will find the newly opened Sapphire Beach Bar and Grill which is located next to the dive shop. An additional pool is located just up the street. Nearby Sapphire Beach Marina offers day charters or sunset cruises for those who love to be on a boat or in the water. Lovely Sapphire Beach is a 5 minute walk and offers relaxation and wonderful snorkeling with plenty of fish. Kick back with a tropical drink and RELAX as you take it all in....or hop on a ferry at the nearby town of Red Hook and travel to St. John, St. Croix or visit the British Virgin Islands (Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda). Red Hook also offers several great restaurants as well as grocery shopping and American Yacht Marina. It is all about location and this area just about has it all-great beach, snorkeling/diving, fishing, boating, sunshine and some very nice trade wind breezes. You can also catch a taxi or take your rental car and visit the rest of St. Thomas, catch a ferry to Water Island or may be a sea plane to St. Croix! The capitol city of Charlotte Amalie has numerous duty free shops as well as several fine dining establishments. Quaint Frenchtown also offers some great restaurants and water views.

About Patrick Brown

We love the water, boats, fishing, diving and of course hitting the beach. We have invested in this property and truly love it and the surrounding area and take pride in our ownership. We know you will enjoy our home and all that is available for you to do while on vacation.

Patrick Brown purchased this studio in 2015

Why Patrick Brown chose East End

My wife and I chose to buy here because we simply love the USVI/BVI and love to travel throughout the islands. This area offers plenty for those who love the water and all that is associated with it. Nearby town of Red Hook is great and the Ferry Terminal is such an advantage to have close by for those who want to visit the other islands. We are proud owners and really enjoy the atmosphere poolside at Sapphire Village as well as visiting Sapphire Beach where there is some very good snorkeling. Just up the road is Coki Beach which has some wonderful beach diving as well as snorkeling. It really is great owning a piece of paradise!

What makes this studio unique

Yes, it is the view, no doubt about it. As soon as you walk in you just fall in love all over again! We truly enjoy sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the early evening taking in the turquoise hues and colors, the waters are really that vibrant. Usually it is a very clear view and it really is great to watch the boats come and go as well as para-sailing right nearby the studio.

Worst part was leaving

  • 4 of 5

This condo was the best choice we could have made for our 4 day USVI vacation. If you are wanting to be near the east end beaches, Red Hook, or plan on using the ferry to get to other islands this is the perfect place to stay. You can catch the safari bus at the entrance to the complex to ride all over the island for a $1, $2 if you are going to the city; it comes by multiple times an hour.

On the complex grounds you can find a pool that has a bar and pizza place (sells more than pizza) with a great happy hour of buy a beer get a free slice. Walking distance away is the marina along with sapphire beach.

But by far the best part of this condo is easily Patrick. He made himself available to contact whenever my girlfriend and I had questions or concerns. Either by email or text, all of our questions get answered and her had great recommendations for all over the island, in all price ranges, and in all different settings.

Last note, if you visit USVI make sure to carve a day out for just St. John. We went there for 7 hours one day and it was not enough; ever beach has its own unique quality and we could only make it to 4 different ones. On St. Thomas we made it to about 4 beaches and the best (in our option) was secret harbor, especially if you want to see some good view for snorkeling.

Beautiful view in a simply little apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Quiet and a short walk to (in our opinion) the prettiest beach on the island. Convenient - Right down the road from shops and restaurants. Awesome view from the balcony and you are provided everything you need for a weeks stay. Thanks!

Sapphire Village Studio

  • 4 of 5

The studio condo at Sapphire Village is all we really needed, certainly not fancy, but kitchen and a bed and a good view worked out well and very affordable. We could access wifi down near the office, but not at the condo. The location was good - close to Red Hook and groceries, easy to hop on the safari bus or take a taxi and the beach was right there. Sapphire Beach was great, not crowded, an easy walk down the hill (at least for us). I liked the condo's location in the middle of the bank of buildings - in the St. Marten Building. The owner was great to work with! We did a different beach everyday!.

Perfect Vacation Rental for a Couple

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sapphire village in Patrick's rental. The view is absolutely astonishing. The rental is very clean. Sapphire village is safe and within walking distance to sapphire Beach. We absolutely loved this studio rental, it was the perfect size for the two of us. Patrick has really thought of every little detail to help make your stay enjoyable On the island. There are towels, a cooler, two chairs, and two sets of snorkel gear all waiting for you. My husband and I would both definitely rent from Patrick again in the future.

No Better Place to Stay in St. Thomas - Safe, Beautiful, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

I'll keep it short.

My wife and I enjoyed 8 days at the condo with 0 hiccups. If you do your research on St. Thomas, you will find that Sapphire Village is the safest place on the island and Sapphire Beach is touted as the most beautiful place to snorkel and spend the day.

The Condo.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the place. From the guard gates at the front of the community, to the freshly painted, beautifully decorated inside of the condo, this is the place to stay. The view is second to none for the island and the people that live in Sapphire Village or work at the marina are as nice as any.

If that isn't enough, Patrick (the owner), went above and beyond to find out what our hobbies were to steer us in the right direction -- sending pages of information on St. Thomas and St. John's, food options, beautiful beaches, and island do's and don'ts.

The island is beautiful and when we return we hope our new favorite vacation spot isn't booked!

Thank you for a remarkable experience and a relaxing island vacation.

Sincerely,

Garrett and Kristen

Great location, everything we needed for a short vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 days in St. Thomas, thanks to Patrick and this great property. We loved walking down to Sapphire Beach, which had great snorkeling, and appreciated the use of beach chairs and snorkel equipment. I also loved the proximity to Red Hook, which has lots of good little restaurants. It is also a main point for the ferry on the island. Thus, it was very easy to tcatch the $7 ferry to St. John (15 minute ride) and other destinations as well as book day trips that left from the area (scuba diving, sailing etc.) Patrick was great to work with! I definitely recommend this property.
