Property description

The overwhelming physical beauty of Sapphire Beach: 20 feet from the water's edge; the music of the surf to relax you; the constant tradewinds to cool you; white sands at your doorstep; a palm tree to call your own. An island vista uninterrupted from Atlantic to Caribbean--the ultimate in relaxation.

Situated at the windward (Eastern) end of St. Thomas, Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is just five minutes away from the nautical village of Red Hook, with the St. John and BVI ferry docks, the fabulous Moe's Market with its gourmet wines, meats and deli, the succulent lobster to be found at many village restaurants, all kinds of interesting little shops and the constant party at Duffy's Love Shack.

GREETINGS FROM YOUR PERSONAL PROPERTY MANAGER:
The peacefulness of your vacation will be in the personal hands of Kathleen Browne., the Hammock in Heaven's onsite manager. Kathleen will give you great comfort and security during your stay.

YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME:
Featuring a huge wrap-around terrace and an uninterrupted view from Atlantic to Caribbean over St. John and the British Virgin Islands, your condominium is a premier unit at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina, a gated community with 24-7 security. (Many guests who have visited and seen what Sapphire Beach has to offer have said this unit occupies Sapphire's best location.)

The condominium and balcony is an extra-large (1200 sq. ft.) fully air-conditioned studio that can be divided to create two sleeping areas by a sliding, louvered wood partition. The 'master' sleeping area presents a king-sized bed with a brand new Pillow-Top mattress providing exquisite sleeping comfort and, at the foot of the bed, a flat-screen HD, LCD cable TV.

The kitchen is sleek and modern, with a full-sized fridge, stove and microwave. The outside deck is a premier feature because it is so huge. It contains a dining area, a lounge area and, of course, the Heavenly Hammock pictured above.

THE SAPPHIRE BEACH MARINA (75 feet down the beach):
A wonderland of island water activities. Daysail to St. John, Caneel Bay and Trunk Bay. Cruise a catamaran to Jost Van Dyke in the BVI, home of Foxy's and the Soggy Dollar Bar. Speedboat to Virgin Gorda and The Baths. Dive PADI. Jetski. Fish the North and South Drops with the very best. Or just hang out and watch the resident school of 50-pound tarpon play in the Marina.

FREE LOUNGE CHAIRS AND SNORKEL EQUIPMENT :
A one-mile, 'drop-dead' beach with every water toy imaginable. A two-tier freshwater pool. Banana Cabana, a bar and grille serving both the pool and at the main beach. Complimentary lounge chairs and snorkeling equipment. Snorkel with turtles, rays and a kaleidoscope of fishes right off the beach.

Why the Owner Chose East End, St Thomas, USVI:
Sapphire Beach is arguably the most beautiful beach venue in the Caribbean. On the breezy East End of St. Thomas, Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina lies at the center of the on-the-water and in-the-water activities for which St. Thomas, St. John and the British Virgin Islands are world-renowned. The very best of these activities start right in the Sapphire Beach Marina, 100' from my doorstep. Red Hook, a lazy nautical town, with shops, good restaurants, lively night life, not to mention being the ferry hub for service to St. John and the BVI, is but 3-4 minutes away.

Guests who stay at my 'Hammock in Heaven' enjoy many unique amenities, including 1) the management services of of Kathleen Browne. free lounge chairs and snorkel equipment, free ensuite wifi, free hurricane insurance, and an informative and personal booklet prepared by me especially for you.
