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.

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.

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.

ENJOYING MY STAY AT SAPPHIRE!

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 !

LOVED THIS BEACH.

  • 5 out of 5
I loved this place. It was my first time to St Thomas. Didnt rent a car but chose to take the safari cabs and taxis everywhere we went. It worked out fine. We stayed close to the condo property anyway most of the time.
The beach was perfect, no big waves, pretty calm most all the time. Not too crowded either which I really liked. Kathie had noodles in the condo that we took into the water and just floated for hours. It was so relaxing!
The condo was really nice. Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine greeted us on arrival. There was even some bottled water in the fridge which was great because we hadn't gone grocery shopping yet.
Kathie gave us tips on where to shop for food which really helped since I had no idea where to go. Cost U Less worked out great. We cooked breakfast everyday but ate in Red Hook most every night. Duffy's Love Shack, Molly Malone's and the Caribbean Grill were awesome. Subway and Taco Hell filled the void when we wanted a quick bite to take back to our room. There's a little coffee shop on the second floor overlooking the marina and that was really nice. All the locals were there in the mornings talking about what they would be doing that day. Kind of fun to listen and make friends.
The condo unit A205 and the information from the owner were all great and useful. It sure helped to have big beach towels there, a cooler for drinks and the snorkel equipment- snorkeling was was awesome!!!
I have to mention the waiter on the beach- what a character! He was always ready to to take our food or drink order, and always had a joke to tell. His beach attire was ridiculously funny, as was he!

A205 is the place to book if youre planning on going to Sapphire Beach. We found it on both Homeaway and VRBO and it was exactly as pictured.
We will be back,
Thanks Kathie for everything!

It always makes me feel good to hear that our guests had a great time and enjoyed our place! Honeymooners especially!!
Glad the car rental-or lack thereof-worked out for you. The transportation services on the island really are exceptional.
Im happy that you're happy! We love Sapphire Beach too!

NICE TIME AT THE BEACH

  • 4 out of 5
-How to get there-
Sapphire Beach was our last destination on our travel across the VI. Coming from St. John, the resort is very close, so it wasn't a big deal to get there. If you don't have a car to buy your food there is a Mini Mart providing the most important stuff, otherwise you can try to go to the foodcenter supermarket by Safari Taxi. If you want to travel back home by plane there you will always find a taxi standing in front of the condos, taking you there in less than half an hour for a good price!

-The condo-
The condo itself provides everything you need and is quite luxurious: full kitchen with coffee machine, fans and air condition, a big balcony with ocean view and two big tv screens. There are also beach chairs and snorkel gear so that the corals can be easily enjoyed! To get to the beach you just have to go around the building and its never too full. The only thing that is regrettable are the former gift shop and beach bar which are now closed and run-down. But there is still a snack bar close which delivers snacks and drinks directly to you place.

-Conclusion-
If you want to pass some relaxing days at the beach with a certain standard of living, the Sapphire Beach Condo is just the right place to be! Kathie is a very nice and careful host who will help you if there are any problems.
Nevertheless, the condo is no place for travellers with a small budget. If you want to use your stay for an exploration of the island, I would recommend a more central and more hostel-like place.
For me, it is a place I definitely would visit again if I had the possibility!

Owner's Response: Thank you Johannes for your review of our place on the beach!
I'm so glad you included us in your travels.
I'm also happy that I was able to get you checked in a bit earlier than you expected. I always try to accommodate whenever I possibly can!!
I agree groceries here a bit expensive and everyone should be aware of this. The cost of shipping to stock the stores is high, so unfortunately it's the price we all have to pay to be on a fairly remote island. It's no too too bad though.
We are undergoing some renovations here. All to improve the place for everyone's enjoyment. The pool bar is anticipated to be completed by November 2014. It's been closed for many years, but we see the light at the end of the tunnel now and it will be fabulous once it's all done! Until then our very own Banana Cabana is doing a wonderful job dishing up food and serving island refreshments!! Glad you got the chance to enjoy their hospitality while you were here!
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo and hope we have the chance to have you back again someday soon!! -Kathie

BEAUTIFUL CONDO, AMAZING VIEW...MAGICAL

  • 5 out of 5
Everyone should experience this lovely location. Listening to the ocean as you go to sleep and wake up each day is truly amazing. Kathie's condo is beautiful & immaculate. Very comfortable king bed and pullout couch. Fully stocked kitchen to prepare your meals & huge bathroom with plenty of towels. The beach towels are big and fluffy. Right from the first booking to our arrival, Kathie was always ready to provide any information or suggestions. If there was anything amiss in the condo, she made sure it was taken care of immediately (two lightbulbs were out and within an hour they were replaced). The beach is stunning and oh so quiet. The pool is the go to place for ultimate peace. Each day the hardest decision we had was : beach or pool or both?
With respect to dining options, there is the local Banana Cabana between the condos which serves up great burgers & other items and drinks, etc. You can order from Pedro's Pizza right on the beach or have it delivered to the condo. The Sapphire Bar & Grill behind the marina has excellent food and live music each night. Nothing like dancing in the warm tropical air. There's a great food truck at the top of the hill called The Grid which serves up delicious BBQ pulled pork, ribs, chicken etc. for lunch. It's very easy to get to Red Hook to eat at Fish Tails, excellent seafood, or you can go into Charlotte Amalie to partake in other great eateries like Greenko's Mexican Food. For groceries, there are many options. We took the Safari Taxis often to the Tutu Mall where there is a large grocery store and KMart but there is also the Food Centre and other places. Kathie is awesome in providing more shopping options.
In summary, if you are a "hotel" person and like lots of close eateries and entertainment, this might not be the place for you. But if you enjoy peace, beauty & relaxation while you create your own delicious meals, then look no further. Relishing the view on the balcony while enjoying that glass of wine & great home-cooked food is priceless. And if you still feel the need for bustling activities and nightlife, then Charlotte Amalie is only a cab ride away.
Thank you Kathie for a truly magical vacation.

BEAUTIFUL CONDO ON A BEAUTIFUL BEACH!!!

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at Sapphire January 11-18, 2014. This condo was absolutely beautiful. Kathie, the owner of the condo, was wonderful to work with. The condo was exactly as the pictures showed. It felt as if we were staying in a hotel because when we arrived they had fresh flowers on the table and a bottle of wine waiting to welcome us. This property is located on such a beautiful beach. The first thing you see when you wake up in the morning is the ocean. I would definitely recommend this condo. It was perfect for the two of us and I can't say enough about this condo.

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.
