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.

About Bill Sands

Hello my name is Bill Sands. I have owned vacation rentals on St Thomas for over 15 years and have helped many guest make memories that will last a lifetime! Many of our guests have come back year after year and have become good friends. This property I own with my Sister Ann, husband Maurice and my partner Jerry. We recently renovated it, so its the ultimate in style and comfort.

Bill Sands purchased this condo in 2016

Why Bill Sands chose East End

We purchased this unit because its arguably one of the best locations you will find! What a view ! We are in the St. Vincent Building , which is waterfront with the marina, beach and ocean at your doorsteps. Other units may look appealing, but trust me there is a big difference in the views and location. 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. We understand you have many choices in where you stay, but give us a chance to impress you!

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.

Awesome condo, Amazing view, perfect location, many amenities, just wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

My four night stay at this well appointed studio could not have been better. Clean and well kept, the views from the unit's balcony are amazing. As if the panoramic view of turquoise ocean wasn't enough, in the near distance to the right you can see St. John and off to the left of that you can see Tortolla, as well as some of the other small islands farther left. A short 90-second stroll down the street and you have one of the village's pools and restaurant, called Slice, with great food, pizza and craft beer. Go down the steps in front of the condo and you're at the marina, with jet skis and charter boats available for rental. A few more steps and you're at the oceanfront pools and beach. Flip a coin figuring out which one you want to spend time at, because they are both dream spots out of a movie. The beach, spacious with plenty of both sun and palm trees, has great snorkeling down past the bar. The bar is very nice and they serve great food and reasonably priced beverages (especially beer!). The pool, which is situated at a "point" in the island and is something out of the front page of a luxury travel magazine, juts out to sweeping views of St. John and the British Virgin Islands. The pool's view will keep you here late in the day, which will prove no mistake as the setting sun behind you will give way to the twinkling lights of Cruz Bay in St. John. At night, I went downtown to Red Hook all four nights. It's walkable, but I called the Red Hook taxi and they came within 7 minutes of me calling, all four nights, and it was only 5 bucks for the ride. Red Hook has many restaurants and bars to choose from, all within one block! And they were great bars. Sapphire Village is so great because of the beach, views, and location in proximity to Red Hook which made it easy to get a ferry to St. John or the other islands, which is what I did one of the days. The last day there I went down to the marina at 7am and got on a charter boat with 30 other people (reservations are actually recommended), and the boat went to Virga Gorda for "The Baths", a very beautiful, iconic oceanfront spot with huge boulders and saltwater pools, as well as three other spots including Jost Van Dyke, home of the famous Soggy Dollar Bar, snorkeling, and a restaurant called Pussers on an island in the middle of the water. All-in-all, the condo in this great village set the tone for a fabulous vacation. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and I'm sure you will !

Owner's Response: Donna we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Everyone says " we don't want to leave" including us! Our view is why we invested in this particular unit. There are lots of units available but it's my opinion this is the best view you will find. I've owned in this community for 16 years and had the opportunity to visit many units first hand so I feel confident I can make that statement. We looking forward to having you back soon! Thank you Bill

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!
