The Dive In shop on the beach is back open for business. Here you can rent kayaks and foam beach floats, or buy some basic beach sundries like sun block, lotions, sunglasses and the like.

We are also on Facebook where we are friends with many of the merchants, boat captains, restaurants etc on our island as well as our surrounding islands. We try to post current activities and happenings around the islands. So if you need ideas on what to do, or what's going on while your visiting our gorgeous paradise check us out. www.facebook.com/Kathie.jankowski.1

The town of Red Hook is just about 1/2 mile from the condo and boasts many restaurants, shops, bars, marinas and of course the Ferry dock. Check out this video of the town -

Some of the amenities at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina~

So many options as you plan your day. Go for a swim, nap on the sand under a tree or in the sun, snorkel right off the beach, volleyball, para-sailing, rent a Wave Runner, go for a PADI dive, snorkeling tour, or a deep sea fishing charter from the Sapphire Marina just steps away...the day is yours to relax and enjoy as you wish in the warm Caribbean sun! Then, you may want to wind down with a nice relaxing sunset cruise. Be sure to check out the marina we have so much to offer!!

We also have gorgeous multi-level cascading freshwater pool which is surrounded by the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Grab a book and relax while watching the tranquil blue waters lap up on the shore surrounding the sparkling clear pool. Or sit back and relax while watching the boats coming in and out of the marina.

Currently at Sapphire, the “Banana Cabana” -located between B and C buildings-offers food, soda and frozen drinks, and the Sapphire Grill offers lunch and dinner -a short walk up the hill past the marina and 'F' building. Both places also provide beach service, so you don’t even need to get out of your chair.

If you’re really tired after the day Senor Pizza is a phone call away and will deliver right to your room. Menus for other local restaurants are also located inside an information booklet inside the condo.

If you're in the mood to explore~ The Virgin Islands National Park on St John is easily accessible by ferry from Red Hook. Catch a cab at Cruz Bay dock and go explore the park, soak in the beauty of Trunk Bay, Caneel Bay, Cinnamon Bay or hike any one of the 22 trails. You may want to check out the ruins of Annaberg Plantation where they produced sugar, molasses and rum. Participate in a demonstration on basket weaving or bread baking. The ruins are fairly extensive and well preserved.

So bring your bikinis and flip flops and be ready to relax and unwind in the beautiful Caribbean sun!

Sapphire Beach, St Thomas, USVI - Beautiful.

About Kathie Jankowski

We have been coming to Sapphire Beach for over 10 years. The clear blue water, powder white sand, the gorgeous pool are like a dream! Its not over-crowded, the people are the friendliest we ever met and every time we come, we say.....we wish we could stay here forever!

When the opportunity arose that we were able to actually buy one of these beautiful condos we jumped! Now we come a few times a year and thoroughly enjoy every moment we are here. We are happy that we can share our place with you and I know you will love it as much as we do.

Kathie Jankowski purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kathie Jankowski chose East End

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina has the best oceanfront condominiums on the island. We are the only community that is located directly on the beach. All others are at best a 'short walk'.

Granted, we aren't here simply for the accommodations, we are here for the beach, the sun, the sand, the island. Here you will experience this beautiful paradise up close and with our toes in the sand. You can't get any closer to the water than here at Sapphire Beach Resort.

What makes this condo unique

Offered on the beach:

Arrange for a professional massage

Snorkel right off the beach.

Yoga classes offered a few times a week.

Fresh water pool for registered guests and owners only!

We Love Sapphire Beach

  • 5 out of 5
We came and renewed our vows at sunset on Sapphire Beach.
Everything was perfect! We were married here 10 years ago. It was so romantic, we even had fresh flowers when we arrived. Thanks Kathie, nice touch!
You could tell the condo was well cared for. It was clean, well stocked. The sheets and towels smelled so fresh. Yes, these are the thing that made me happy.
We ate out most of the time, trying to sample all of the local cuisine. Fish Tails in Red Hook was awesome as was the Italian place, I don't remember the name of it, but food was fantastic.
The beach here wasn't ever crowded. The water was warm but refreshing and like everyone else is saying- the snorkeling was great! We didn't see any turtles, but the coral and the hundreds of colorful fish we did see, made for a successful adventure out!
Be sure to rent through an owner. We picked a gem.
We'll be back again for our 20 year celebration!!

Elaine and Jake ~ 10 years and still going strong <3

Great condo, great location.

  • 5 out of 5
This was not our first visit to Sapphire Beach but it was definitely the best. The condo itself was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The bed was very comfortable and the couch was an actual full sized comfortable piece of furniture. I can't say that about some of the other units we've stayed in.
The grounds and all the buildings are being improved during the summer months, which we were told is considered their slow season. They seem to be bringing this place back to its full glory. Can't wait for the pool bar to reopen. Although we were able to get drinks and food from Banana Cabana which was just steps from the pool.

The best day of our vacations was spent on one of the day cruises out of the marina. We snorkeled and swam right off the boat, then stopped at one of the island bars. We made a few new friends and had a great day.

We snorkeled almost every day and saw a lot of coral, one turtle, and many unknown fish but they were all beautiful.

Great trip, great condo. Would recommend to everyone.
We will return and when we do, we will stay in this condo.
Thanks Kathy for paying attention to the details. It made a world of difference!

I too hope the pool bar will be open next time you come.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
We had an amazing vacation in St. Thomas! In the past, we have stayed at several units here at Sapphire Beach and this was by far the best. The unit was very clean, updated and super comfortable. The owner was very accommodating and even surprised us with a birthday cake for my son upon arrival. The beach was incredible. We snorkeled every day right off the beach. Great drinks and food were available from the Banana Cabana. We enjoyed our stay so much we'll be back again next year! Thanks Kathie for a wonderful time!

I truly appreciated the extra amenities, such as snorkeling gear, towels, and noodles that Kathie provided. She was very attentive and very accessible to me. She responded very quickly to my queries. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and highly recommend this condo to everyone!

Beautiful condo, beautiful beach

  • 5 out of 5
We booked very last minute due to a cancellation in this condo. The condo was clean and very comfortable. We were looking for something right on the beach and found it here.
We spent 2 entire days snorkeling and another day kayaking, right here at Sapphire. We saw some amazingly colorful fish and a lot of coral.
The guys at the surf shop on the beach were very helpful and friendly, as were the ladies working at the small food stand here.
We did go over to St John one day to check out a few beaches over there, also very nice. Sapphire is our favorite though. It wasn't very crowded so we were able to relax and enjoy our time.
Again, thanks for accepting us on such notice, we sure got lucky finding this place!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that we connected at just the right time and we were able to accommodate you! You can't get any closer to beachfront then right here! The staff on the beach are indeed a friendly bunch! I'm so happy that you were able to enjoy the kayaking and snorkeling. It's what we are known for!! Hope to see you back someday real soon. Thanks !

Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is located on the east end of the island next to Red Hook. It is the perfect place for any type of vacation – from adventurous, to fun in the sun, to relaxing by the pool. You don't have to leave Sapphire Beach Resort, everything you need for a memorable vacation is right on-site.

Join a game of beach volleyball then cool off by diving into the ocean or into the sparkling multi-level freshwater pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea.

Sapphire Beach Resort is located in a lovely landscaped tropical garden atmosphere among palms, sea grape and banana trees. You can snorkel right off the shores of Sapphire Beach, sail, windsurf, parasail or jet ski. The marina is only steps away from your porch and offers boats for rent, or arrange for a planned excursion to adjacent islands including St. John and the British Virgin Islands. Deep sea fishing and the best scuba diving is also available on St. Thomas. For golfers, you can't beat the nearby prestigious 18 hole Mahogany Run Golf Course.

You may choose to rent a vehicle thru one of the airport car rental locations. If you would rather leave the driving to someone else, taxi cabs are readily available anywhere on the island as well as the open air safari cabs that only charge $1 per person no matter where you're island adventures take you!

The picturesque, small yachting and boating village of Red Hook is located one-half mile away. You can reach it with a leisurely walk or use one of the air-conditioned cabs always available to take you to any of the nearby attractions. Red Hook has great restaurants, nightlife (Duffy's Love Shack is an island favorite) , gift stores, and a ferry that will take you to the nearby island of Saint John.

For those that like to explore, St. Thomas offers a wide variety of spectacular sights to see and activities to enjoy, including Coral World, air conditioned theaters and gaming casinos, historic buildings, boat tours, a sky ride, zip-line, and ecotours to name just a few. Of course, there is plenty of shopping and amazing restaurants for you to try too. Or, you can just sit, relax and enjoy the gorgeous beauty of the many public beaches tucked away in the bays of St Thomas.
