  • 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!!!"

  • Beautiful condo and beach

    "This condo was amazing. Not only was it right on the beach but the amenities were fantastic. Everything was immaculate. A/C worked great for the hot days (when not lounging on the beach). The kitchen had everything I have at home so cooking in was easy. So close to great restaurants, bars, and market in Redhook. We will definitely be going back to this unit in the future."

  • Home away from home for the holiday was perfect

    "Our 2015 Christmas in a white castle on Water Island provided plenty of “white” that we hardly missed our Minnesota snow at all—from the white towels and bedding to the white sandy beach of Honeymoon Bay! Our entire family of 16, including: young grandchildren, teen cousins, adult siblings, spouses, and grandparents enjoyed our close to 2-week stay and all of the memories made. Activities together were plenty--patio card games, pool floating, sunbathing, beach relaxing, fishing, cooking fresh caught fish, Dinghy’s events, horseshoes with the locals, karaoke, snorkeling, swimming by sea turtles, hermit crabs, TV movies, Vikings football, ferry rides, touring Water Island on golf carts and touring St. Thomas with the $1 shuttle rides. The morning view of sailboats in blue water and the evening view of white twinkling St. Thomas lights were spectacular. And the short rain showers brought double rainbows. Crown Bay Marina on St. Thomas by the ferry has a really good ice cream shop, Tickles pub, souvenir shops, and groceries. (A tip to save grocery trips: We had planned some meals ahead and brought extra suitcases with items like: frozen meats, salami, cheese, trail mixes, and boxed wine.) The Gourmet grocery store by the ferry had anything else we needed. We did go through many tortilla wraps, bagels, and snack crackers. Dinners at Dinghy’s were delightful too, including the Lionfish and their French fries. Home away from home for the holiday was perfect. Thanks Lisa for offering such a great vacation palace on a fun little island!"

  • 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!!"
