When you are not at the beach enjoy a refreshing swim in one of our community's two fresh water pools or dinner and drinks at the Slice; the trendy new restaurant poolside.

You will enjoy the convenience of being located only a 1/2 mile from American Yacht Harbor and the Village of Red Hook where you can shop, dine, enjoy cocktails or hop on the ferryboat for a short ride over to the Island of St. John. While on St. John, explore the shops and dining in Cruz Bay town or explore the U.S. National Park and beaches on its North Shore.

Our condo is well maintained, affordable, clean and loved by all who visit. It's privately positioned for quiet enjoyment with complimentary parking during your stay.

Your linens and cleaning fees are also included making this one of the best values!

About Bill Sands

I am a real estate broker with over 30 years experience and 15 years of vacation home hospitality rental business. This unit is a personally owned and cherished by us.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve been vacationing in St. Thomas for almost 15 years and this was our best stay yet. We rented previously at Sugar Bay, Sapphire Beach Resort, and other condos at Sapphire Village, but this unit was the best! The condo is stylishly decorated, clean, and very comfortable. The ocean view from the condo balcony is spectacular and we really enjoyed looking at the boats in the marina. Sapphire Village is well kept and has 2 pools and a great restaurant on site. Absolutely love the location. Just a short walk to Sapphire Beach for snorkeling and there is even a beach bar. Enjoyed the close proximity to Red Hook where we had dinner, got groceries, and was able to take the ferry to St. John where we snorkeled at Trunk Bay. Absolutely recommend this unit!

Where do you live?

This studio is everything the owner said it would be. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I did not want to pay the price of a full 1 bedroom condo, so I started looking for a studio. This Studio unit is great. From the moment you walk in the door, everything is clean, organized and ready to enjoy. The owner has you up and going the next morning with complimentary coffee and water. No worries on your stay, just have fun and relax. Ready to stay at this Studio again!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. I agree, our studio offers you a better value . We have the larger Studio configuration so our guests can enjoy a comfortable full living room, and a spacious deck/balcony to relax and take in the views. Personally I love the ocean views from almost every vantage point inside the condo! We are travelers ourselves so we offer our guest everything you need for a relaxing vacation . Clean is the most important thing.. We don't skimp on our housekeeping. We use a top notch service to assure our guest piece of mind! I appreciated your comments on how clean everything was when you arrived. We hope to see you back on Island soon!

Awesome experience in St. Thomas!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice clean accommodations, great location & view. Condo very well equipped, including beach chairs and towels. Everything was as advertised in the VRBO descriptions. Bill does a fantastic job in providing information and communications about the whole rental experience and logistics. His recommendations are very good. So many beautiful beaches and things to do - one week is not enough - so book longer if you can - you won't regret it! We had a fabulous time!

Owner's Response: Tom thank for choosing our vacation villa for your recent trip to St Thomas. You have many choices in accommodations so we are honored that you selected us! We are travelers to and know what we like and expect in a good travel experience. Our goal is to raise the bar even higher to exceed your expectations! Your comment ; "Everything as Advertised" was much appreciated. The booking experience for our guest is geared to a book with confidence that the description is accurate and photos taken by us are authentic not a professional portrayal as with some hotels. The informative documents that we send to you prior to your arrival combined with the guest liaison on Island are geared to take all the anxiety and guess work out of traveling. The more information you have about the best beaches, ferry schedules to St John, transfer shuttles from the airport, restaurants and shopping the more time you have to relax and recharge! We hope to see you back soon! Thank you! Bill

Great property & location

  • 5 of 5

My wife was I thoroughly enjoyed the condo. The condo was clean and efficient and had a great view. Before we arrived we received a very informative email which answered most of our questions before we arrived. At the condo there was additional helpful information provided in a notebook for our review. We enjoyed the balcony and the view of the marina and the water. The condo had all of the essentials for a wonderful stay. The beach was just a short stroll away. It was close to the marina where you could rent jet skis or book varies water trips. If we had any questions, the onsite representative, was available and was immediately responsive via text.

The property is exactly as represented in the photos. The unit has a small kitchenette but has all the essentials to cook. The condo is located less than a mile from Red Hook, which made it convenient to catch a ferry to one of the other islands.

Overall we have a very good experience staying at this condo and will consider it in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your visit with us. We believe the more information that we can provide our guest the less stress they will have once your arrive. We want you are guest to feel at home and relax. I appreciated your comments on how accurate our photos are online this is so important. We took the photos are self, not a professional so you can see what you are getting before your book. We had the kitchen designed for us in the fall of 2016 so its brand new and very functional . I love breakfast on the deck overlooking the Caribbean, the boats and St John in the distance.... nothing better. We look forward to having you back in the near future! Enjoy your retirement!

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Great location and view. The condo had everything we needed from kitchen utensils to beach chairs, beach towels and cooler. Absolutely loved Slice VI food. So convenient to have a restaurant, restroom facilities right at the pool. Sapphire beach was delightful and a short walk from the condo. Highly recommend staying here!

Lovely Property! Exceeded my Expectations! Will stay again! Very relaxing, clean and quite!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this quite and relaxing location. The pictures of the condo and view does not do justice to seeing this place in person. Everyone on the property was real nice. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away and the view of the ocean is breathtaking. We will keep this place in mind for our future stay on the island.

Simply the best location. Your unit faces eastwardly to take in one of the most gorgeous views you will find anywhere. You are a very short walk within the community to Sapphire Beach which offers some of the best snorkeling on Island. It's a great beach to explore and sunbathe. You are adjacent to the Sapphire Marina for a sunset sail, or jet skiing! Best of all you are only a 1/2 mile from Red Hook where you will find dozens of great restaurants, bars, shopping and groceries. The ferry boat terminal is also located in Red Hook for your excursion over to St John for restaurants, shopping or exploring the US National Park. St John is only a 30 minute ride over to Cruz Bay St John. It's most enjoyable to ride the ferry over for dinner and gaze at the stars on your journey back to St Thomas!
