Recent Sapphire Beach reviews

  • This condo was perfect for our island getaway!

    "First - wow. The location of this condo couldn't be better. We were immediately taken with the jaw-dropping views from the two balconies. As stated, this unit is in Building "E" at the resort, which offers the best views of St. John and all the beautiful turquoise water between St. Thomas and St. John. Only the 3rd floor units (like this one) are bi-level and have two balconies, and Building E has it's own little beach - most of it rocky, but there is a 50' or so stretch of sand. It's a very short walk to Sapphire Beach proper, behind Buildings A-D, and what a beautiful beach it is. So the unit gets a big, fat A+ for location. As I mentioned, it is on the 3rd floor, so you will need to lug your suitcases up a few flights of steps, and the Master bedroom is on the 4th level, so more stairs. But only once coming and going so it's over with quick. Inside, the decor is very tasteful and beachy. But the true life of this condo is lived on those glorious balconies, where we enjoyed morning coffee, and every meal that we didn't go out for. Every day we watched the graceful pelicans gliding by our balconies as they floated over the water 50' away and nose-dived for fishy snacks. It was so cool watching them!! Getting there: We took Peter's recommendation and had Miss Brown's service meet us at the airport and take us to Food Center before going to the condo, for a total of $70. It was nice but a regular taxi will take 2 people with bags to the condo for $30, which I advise doing before going grocery shopping. The reason is that you can take stock of what's already in the pantry and fridge before you buy things like coffee, condiments, etc. There's a fair amount of stuff already there. We bought coffee and filters for instance and there was already plenty in the pantry. Also, there is a pretty good liquor collection there already, so again, take stock before you buy. I left well over half a bottle of Johnny Walker Black for someone to appreciate later on. Having this wonderful dwelling to return to after the beach or any other excursions was magical. It is very convenient to get to the St. John ferry in Red Hook - a $4 ride per person. Taxis are very easy to get, but if you plan a lot of trips to Charlotte Amalie or the North shore, you might want to consider renting a car. The taxis do add up. We are already looking ahead to the next time we will have an opportunity to vacation in St. Thomas, and hope Peter and Beverly will have us back!"

  • Beautiful sapphire beach

    "We enjoyed our stay. The condo had room for 2 adults and 2 kids. The beach is beautiful and good snorkeling there. There is pool available, it is unfortunate that the bar / grill by pool is boarded up and perhaps destroyed in storm...I hope they fix it up. The condo is in good shape and Bianca was available for any questions. The power goes out often which was a challenge for us the night it lasted 2 hours. Thankfully there were 2 flashlights available in the bathroom. The kids loved putting dog bones in water on beach to attract fish."

  • Great property, right on the beach

    "My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay! The home was clean and comfortable. Good sized bed and kitchen stocked with all the appliances you need. We made breakfast at home everyday and spent many hours on the beach, which was amazing. It feels like a private beach because it's mostly just the people from the condo units, they give you free lounge chairs, and the four condo buildings are pretty much the only ones on this beach. We especially liked being in this building D because it's on the quieter side of the beach so not much foot traffic outside. We could sit on our balcony for hours just feasting our eyes on the beach and ocean."

  • A Great Anniversary Getaway

    "Thoroughly enjoyed this corner unit overlooking the bi level pool, St. John's Island & the adjacent marina. Once we arrived, we turned off the air conditioning & completely opened windows & sliding doors for the whole week. The cross breeze was perfect in this building & falling asleep to the sound of the waves was exactly what we were looking for. We snorkelled most mornings right out front of the unit. Made many trips back & forth from the pool to make our own drinks......there were actually 2 blenders provided. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare meals at any given time of the day. Bought fish right from a fishing charter to cook in our unit one evening. This unit was very clean. Provided plenty of towels for kitchen & bath for the week. The king size bed was also very comfortable especially being able to open the side window right next to it. (only the corner units offer this because of the exterior wall of the building). A more appealing feature, the owners also own the adjacent unit which allows the balcony divider to open between them & expand the visiting area. Something we will certainly consider in the future. The property appears to make progressive improvements each time we've stayed at Sapphire. A great bar & grill is operating next to the dive shop now instead of under the canopy between buildings. It would be nice to see the pool bar renovated & operating by our next visit. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home away from home."
