2 Person Studio with Balcony Water Views - 3 Minute Walk to Sapphire Beach

Our lovely condo is waiting for your arrival! Thankfully Sapphire Village continues to update the grounds and we look forward to each and every step along the way. The pools are filled and one is just a short walk from our condo. An additional pool is located just up the street behind the Barbados building. Our 2 person studio condominium with full kitchen has a queen bed, blow up mattress, 2 ceiling fans and window air conditioner and offers a near luxury resort type of feel 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. The restaurant Slice VI Craft Pizza and Cafe is available for your dining pleasure and is located next to the lower pool. Lovely Sapphire Beach also is the location of the wonderful Sapphire Beach Bar and Grill where you can find tasty burgers and other sandwiches along with a variety of libations to enjoy (they are open 11-5 or so). This establishment is located next to the dive shop (Dive In) where you can rent kayaks, SUPs, beach chairs and dive equipment. Nearby Sapphire Beach Marina offers day charters or sunset cruises for those who love to be on a boat or in the water. Sapphire Beach is close by and a 3 minute walk from the condo 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 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 Harbour 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 Estate Smith Bay

My wife and I chose to buy here because we simply love the USVI/BVI and love to travel throughout the islands. We do have a local presence as well as our caretaker lives nearby and is available in case you need something taken care of while staying in our home. Yes, the views are wonderful and we find ourselves sitting on the balcony quite a bit just staring at the gorgeous water and incredible mountains in the distance! 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 Lindquist and Coki Beach which has some wonderful beach diving as well as snorkeling. It really is great owning a piece of paradise! 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.

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. Its also great having our caretaker nearby just in case something needs attention. Also its wonderful to be just a few steps away from a lovely pool and restaurant and gorgeous Sapphire Beach.

The condo is clean and well outfitted with everything you'd need. I didn't use the snorkel gear, but there are two sets available. The views are outstanding from the deck and Sapphire beach is just down the hill. I'll be looking to stay here again on my next vacation to St. Thomas.

                                                                  One note, you'll want to bring breakfast items with you, the restaurant doesn't open until noon and coffee is hard to come by unless you make your own (coffee maker is in room).

                                                                  Wonderful

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Maria, I think your one word review sums it up quite nicely! Thanks for choosing my home for your vacation and we look forward to your return.

                                                                  This is a perfect Studio condo.

                                                                  Mary S.

                                                                  This is a perfect clean studio condo, it was supplied with everything that you could think of such as; bath and hand towels, beach towels, beach chairs, snorkeling gear and other beach gear, all of the kitchen utensils you need. The patio scenery was awesome. This condo was in a perfect location, it is near Red Hook where you can catch the ferry to go to St John's, and plenty of places to eat drink, listen to live and sports bars. The grocery store is a little expensive but alcohol was about the same price.

                                                                  We did not rent a car but there were always taxis and Safaris available for transportation to go to the beaches and to go shopping. You also can catch the Safari down the hill to go to other Islands such as water Island and other shops.

                                                                  The sapphire grounds where the condo is located is safe, quiet, clean, and has a great Beach and friendly people.

                                                                  By far this was the best vacation ever.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

I know first hand how wonderful it is to simply enjoy the lovely views on the balcony as you watch the world go by sipping a glass of wine! We look forward to having you as our guest for your next visit, thanks once again for choosing my home for your vacation.

                                                                  Wonderful!

                                                                  We had power which we weren't expecting. Our condo was perfect. I loved being in the Red Hook area. Our owner, Patrick, kept us well informed.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Property was excellent and very well kept. Condo was well maintained with all needed amenities

                                                                  Overall property and condo was excellent! Plenty of room in studio and layout was comfortable. Great view from the deck of the beautiful ocean, boats and great for sunrise and sunset. Breakfast overlooking the water was really enjoyable! All needed amenities in condo and local grocery stores made shopping easily. Owners also did an excellent job in providing detailed information of local attractions, restaurants, beaches and things to do. Can't wait to spend more time for another visit.

                                                                  Owner's Response:
