  • New Years Perfection

    "We are very lucky to celebrate New Years aboard Catalyst this year. This is our 7th return to Catalyst, but this was our first New Year trip. Although some may think "what's left to see or do" , we can honestly say each vacation has been unique and Captain Al has introduced us to new islands, anchorages, dive sites each visit. Captain Al has been here for more than 10 years and his knowledge of the area, history and current going on's is very helpful. He knows all the best places, and the best times to go visit them (to avoid cruise shippers or has weather extra). He is an easy going Captain, let's us change up the day Or direction on the fly, is always willing to seek out one more dive site or activity for us. In terms of the food ... We usually do the half board charter which allows us to feast in Chef Al meals on board and then try out local restaurants on some islands. To be sure, Capatin Al's meals are top notch masterpieces and many of our most memorable meals have been served on Catalyst. The boat itself is a classic Catamaran, with the interior having nice wood work, comfortable spaces. catalyst has all the water toys, snorkel dive gear you will need, big fluffy sun bed on the trampoline and plenty of shady spaces to escape to. Every time we come back the boat is looking better then we remembered,..very well maintained, new upgrades to keep her looking great and modern. This year when we arrived we found a new rattan wicker couch on the front of the boats!! A couch on a boat... That is how much room there is up there. !! Writing this review makes me miss Catalyst and Captain Al so much... We can't wait for our next Adventure!!"

  • Lovely property, great stay

    "We spent a week at this property, after spending a few days on St. John. The property is lovely. There is a large patio with tables and chairs where we sat in the morning and drank our coffee while listening to the birds and the sounds of the town waking up. There are trees right by the patio, so it is always shaded, and plenty of birds and hummingbirds. It gave a feeling of being away from the town, but the property is very close to town. There is a full kitchen, a bedroom, and a bathroom. All very clean and everything we needed was there. The hosts made sure we were taken care of. Chris met us at the plaza when we arrived and led us up to the property. We had one minor mechanical issue during our stay and Chris took care of it immediately. Maxine gave us recommendations for restaurants, beaches, and things to do (and also steered us away from a couple of things we were thinking of, which was also appreciated). It was a very relaxing week, I would not hesitate to stay here again."

  • Stunning

    "My husband and I had the good fortune to spend 4 weeks at Peter and Beverly's absolutely beautiful condo on Sapphire Beach. Our late evening arrival made it difficult to get a good look at our surroundings but upon opening the door to the condo we walked into the beautifully decorated condo that appears exactly as it does on the VRBO website. The kitchen is fully stocked with every utensil and gadget you can think of, as well as dinnerware, glassware, pots and pans. We used the small George Foreman for steaks, burgers, hotdogs, chops, etc. We had most of our meals in house and with the full size frig it was easy to stock up for a week at a time. Baths were more than adequate as well - great water pressure and shower heads, and Redken hair products. Those may seem like silly comments but how many times have you stayed somewhere with a lousy shower? The views from the two decks are simply indescribable. The water is gorgeous, you can see the marina and watch the boats move in and out; Shark Island, St. John, and many other islands are part of the landscape. We saw many weddings on the point as it is a beautiful venue for a memorable day. Building E is prime for views and privacy. We also preferred to be on the upper floors as it assured complete quiet (except for the sound of the surf) and privacy. The condo itself is exactly what I would want if I were so fortunate to have a vacation home. The decorating is up to date and isn't a throwback to the 80's or 90's. In two words - tasteful and classy. Comfortable and relaxing as well. I just can't say enough. We spent the day at St. John and would highly recommend. Enjoyed the ferry ride over and be sure and sit upstairs on the deck outside. Shopped at Havensight (okay) and had a manicure at The Four Seasons (beautiful grounds but not our style). Too foo-foo for us. The grounds at Sapphire are beautiful and natural to island life. Had dinner at Pesce's and Fish Tails. Great meal at Pesce's and the location at Fish Tails is great - you're right on the water. We were blessed with perfect weather for all four weeks; high 83, lows 73-76; rained at night a few times. Breezy. We hated to leave Sapphire and have been home for a week. We had such a wonderful time we are going back next year for another 4 weeks! Peter and Beverly are so easy to work with and always available to assist with any question you might have. We highly, highly recommend this property!!!"

  • Great value and view at Sapphire Beach

    "My family of four really enjoyed this Sapphire Beach condo rental. The view was perfect looking out at the boats with a direct view of St. John, amazing at night. The condo is small but had everything we needed, especially since our goal wasn't to hang out indoors. The location is perfect, a half-mile from the Red Hook ferry and grocery store. There are taxis at the property for easy access to St. Thomas beaches, and in case you don't want to walk to Red Hook. However, you could spend the whole vacation just at Sapphire Beach if you wanted, with beautiful sand, water, and snorkeling. We also chartered a boat for a BVI day trip right from the dock in front of the condo. This is the perfect home base for a week in the USVI."
