Far Niente, from an Italian phrase that romantically translated means “without a care.” Here at Villa Far Niente, you’ll enjoy the perfect tropical beach vacation in a recently renovated 2-story villa condo. Brand new to the Sapphire Beach rental market, Villa Far Niente is located in the coveted E Building, located directly on the beach. The views from this villa are nothing less than breathtaking, looking out directly onto the crystal clear blue water with St. John and the British Virgin Islands in the distance. No other building at Sapphire Beach is as close to the water as E building, giving you the feeling of being on a cruise ship as you look out the windows from the balcony on both levels.
E-307 is a fully renovated 2-story villa that sleeps up to 6, and is ideally suited for a couple or family. The first floor of this 960 square-foot air conditioned villa features a newly renovated full kitchen with slab-granite countertops, high-end cherry cabinets, designer pendant lighting, new stainless steel refrigerator, stainless steel convection microwave oven, glass 4-burner cooktop, coffee maker, and blender. Our new kitchen features a breakfast bar with 3 stools along with a dining table that seats 4. Enjoy the widescreen HD TV (with complementary cable and DVD/VCR) from either the dining area or living room area which also includes a queen-sized sofa bed. The entire first floor has been updated with stone tile. The first floor bathroom has also been renovated with tiled floors and walls, double sinks, and a newly tiled shower. Free wi-fi with unlimited data access is provided for your convenience.
The second floor master suite features an 18-foot high cathedral wood ceiling, a king-sized bed with luxurious linens, and a separate living area including a queen-size sofa bed. The second floor full bathroom has also been renovated to include new floor and wall tiles. Both bathrooms include hair dryers and plush towels.
A brand new HD TV complements the second floor bedroom along with an iPod dock to enjoy your favorite music. The private balcony with new lounge chairs invites you to enjoy the views of nearby St. John and the BVI by day, or enjoy a glass of wine while you count the shooting stars at night. The view from E307 of the moon rising over St. John is magnificent!
Next to the comfort you’ll enjoy in Villa Far Niente, the highlight of your stay will be Sapphire Beach itself, one of the most spectacular beaches in all of the Caribbean. Sapphire Beach includes 2 beaches that offer sugar white sand, crystal clear blue/turquoise water, and world-class snorkeling. The E building sits directly on its own beach and offers privacy and quiet, yet is only steps from the pool and the watersports pavilion. Included in the price of your stay are beach towels, beach chairs and snorkeling equipment. Sapphire Beach is unique in that it provides spectacular snorkeling over coral reefs that are accessible within 25 yards of the beach. While snorkeling on either of the two coral reefs, you are guaranteed to see some of the best coral and fish to be found anywhere in the Virgin Islands. The resident sea turtles and rays will amaze you (don’t forget to bring an underwater camera!).
Whether you just want to float in the water, soak up the sun, snorkel, wind surf, or rent a jet ski, it’s all available at Sapphire Beach. The full service Watersports Pavilion and Dive shop directly on Sapphire Beach, along with Sapphire Beach Marina directly adjacent to the E building, can provide you with everything to get out onto the water – scuba, parasailing, power-boat rentals, wave runners, and Day Sails to St. John and the BVI. Lunch and drinks are available on the beach daily by the friendly staff at the Banana Cabana, located between the B and C buildings.
Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is conveniently located on the East End of St. Thomas and less than 5 minutes from the town of Red Hook, providing access to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping, marinas, and nightlife. You can also catch the ferry from Red Hook for the quick trip to St. John. The marina facility at Red Hook also offers Day Sails, boat rentals, and excursions to the BVI. Also within easy access is the magnificent golf course at Mahogany Run. Free parking is provided directly in front of E Building and rental cars and taxis are readily available at the Sapphire Beach main desk.
