Guestbook comments from the owner

We chose this condo after reading lots of reviews about the property itself and this E-107 condo in particular. While we had some reservations as to the general condition of the property, when we opened the door and stepped inside this condo, we knew we had made the right decision. There was a beautiful welcome basket left on the table acknowledging our 25th Anniversary which was such a surprise. The view from the living area was quite spectacular and the water was a mere 30 feet away as described.

The photos of the condo do not do it justice. It is everything and much, much more. It is very evident that the owners care very much about guests having a great experience. We did not want for anything. Susan keeps this condo is great shape, very clean and well-stocked.

While planning for our trip, Susan answered all of our questions, offered some great advice and suggestions, all in a timely manner. She even called us after arrival to be sure we arrived and were happy.

We have already reserved our stay for next year and look forward to making this an annual trip. Thank you Susan and Mark! FIVE STARS

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful 35th Anniversary week in St. Thomas. The condo was ideal, right on the beach and on the first floor. The patio was fantastic, covered from the sun, a nice table and chairs, and the sound of the waves. There's a great view to St. John's and beyond. Red Hook is nearby for essentials and entertainment. All food markets are very close if you drive. We brought our own masks and snorkels and spent an afternoon checking out the reef right out the patio door. Numerous fish to see.You can rent if needed. At night we just lay back in bed and saw the twinkling lights of Cruz Bay, St. John's. Very scenic. The condo was well furnished, even a special request for a cold bottle of bubbly was waiting for our arrival, thanks Susan, my wife loved it! The unit was very clean and well maintained. A very comfy bed. The satellite tv had everything you could want, we watched the first rounds of March Madness.

Unit E is ideal for those who like the ocean nearby, no trees blocking the view, and set aside from all the other units. Units A - C had the main beach out front, but the beach was much wider and at the waters edge the view was blocked by all of the trees. It's a much busier area.

As far as the entire facility, there is a definite need to update the pool area and scuba/snorkel rental shack. The pool is very nice, but the pool building was roped off. Not sure if construction was due, or not. A nice on site bar/pub would have been fantastic, no need to leave. All meals were either in the condo, or in Red Hook and beyond (we had a car). I recommend renting a car if you want to see the island. We had a very nice dinner at A Room With A View at Bluebeard's Resort in town (not the one on the beach) for our special dinner.

The Charlotte Amalie airport is a bit deceiving, small, and easily traveled on your inbound flight, but quite hectic on departure (8:00 a.m.). Arriving 90 minutes early, we stood in line to check bags (American Airlines), stood in line for customs, and stood in line for security. At these stops no one seemed concerned about speed. We just made the flight with minutes to spare, not sure about those arriving later than us. Our flight was not full. Advice, get there early. The car rental return was so easy, a drop box for keys.

I'd recommend this unit for a beautiful vacation, quiet, scenic, yet close to the the main beach and more activity if that's your thing. The small beach out front wast perfect for us.

Perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just like the pictures on line. The water was just 20 steps from the patio. Quiet and relaxing yet close to the action in Rehook. We rented a car which gave us freedom to explore the island and also go over t St. John. This condo is perfect for a relaxing getaway. You can cook if you want or go out. We bought fresh fish from the boats at the marina next to our condo and grilled it on the grill that was provided. Local grocery store had everything we needed. I highly recommend this property to get away from it all

Great Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Very Nice property in a great location next to Red Hook, convenient for dining/drinks, shopping and ferry rides to St. John. The condo was well stocked, clean, cozy and 30 steps to the ocean. It sits on a nice quiet beach with white sand and clear water.

We just can't stop coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We've enjoyed the hospitality of Mark and Susan for many years at Sapphire Beach. They're the most attentive hosts in the world, insuring that our stay at their condo is most enjoyable. The condo is always immaculate and constantly upgraded to make guests as comfortable as possible. It is our tropical home away from home. If you need food and wine/spirits, visit the new Moe's Fresh Market in Red Hook.

Owner's Response: Hi Bill & Dianne. Thank you for your wonderful review and for coming back every year. We are happy that you find the condo so comfortable. It's always our pleasure to have you. Thank you for choosing to stay at Condo E-107. And yes, we agree that Moe's market is a nice addition to the Red Hook area. Prices may be a bit higher than the larger markets but it is well stocked with fresh quality products and so close to Sapphire Beach. Thanks for taking such good care of our beach home. Look forward to having you back next year.... Mark & Susan

Me and My Friend

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Condo to find a nice laid out floor plan that flowed right to the glass sliders looking at the beach. The condo was very clean with all items we needed easily found. The call from sue after we got there to see if we needed anything that she could direct us to was a nice touch. Owners were very easy to deal with and the beach was priceless. Can't wait to return!!! We took the public transportation everywhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review Cheryl. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Sapphire Beach. It's a great place for a girl's getaway. There's always so much to see and do and we find that guests want to come back time and again to explore some more. Please feel free to come back anytime you need another getaway. And thanks for taking such good care of our condo while you were there... Mark & Susan

A beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Susan,

We would like to thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful condo in June. We had such a great time there and were amazed at how we'll stocked the unit was. We didn't need anything! You answered all of our questions beforehand and were so knowledgable. The restaurants you suggested quickly became our favorite spots! We will be emailing you soon for another vacation this year! Thank you!!
