Dear Michael,



I just wanted to write to you and let you know how pleased we were about our stay at the Condo. It was absolutely perfect! It was very clean and accommodating! Everyone we encountered while on the beach was kind including the iguana! We look forward to returning to Sapphire Beach in the future. Thank you so much! You were a joy to do business with!

Excellent vacation

  • 5 out of 5
I love Caribbean, and I think, I probably visited most of the places. Belize, Cancun, Dominican republic and etc. I usually go for 4 or 5 star all inclusive resorts, and cruises where you don't have to think about anything : food, entertainment essentially, you don't have to think of anything and this time, I decided to do something different. I wanted to try St. Thomas. Everyone is raving about St. Thomas , so I decided to give it a try and now I have to say, that was the best vacation, I ever had.
Beautiful views- first of all, the island looks different, I think it has volcanic origin, so it is surrounded by green mountains and it looks amazing. The condo is right on the beach and the views are amazing. .

Because the island is surrounded by other islands that act as wave breakers, there are no waves. That is why it is great for snorkeling, it has coral reefs, tons of fish that swim right around you and spotted sting ray. I stayed at Sapphire beach condo C-204 unit and the owner left two pairs of professional snorkeling equipment free to use. Since there are no waves, it is a perfect place for water paddling or kayaking. Kayak rental costs $15 per hour.

The water- The water was amazing, it is so clear and warm, you can literally go into the water and stay there for 2 hours. The temperature itself is very comfortable and there is always a little breeze. When I stayed there the temperature was 84 degrees, and we had the doors to the balcony open, and we didn't even have to use air conditioner it was that comfortable.


The condo itself was great, It had new kitchen it had two LCD tvs, with cable channels, including Cinemax . The kitchen comes equipped with electric oven, microwave and big fridge. It has everything you need to cook, pans, plates, cups. The food shopping is relatively nearby, but I took a taxi anyway to Food Court, it is a big store it has a better selection and great prices for liquor. Don't buy anything at the airport their prices about 30% higher.

Overall, like I said it was the best lazy vacation, I ever took. The nature is so beautiful, the water, the ambiance of the place and it was not crowded at all.

I loved the place, I loved the condo, and big thanks to MIchael for providing excellent service and thanks for our best vacation

JUST WHAT WE WANTED!

  • 5 out of 5
This vacation was just what we needed. The condo was great - just as pictured and described. It's well maintained, with tastefully added features such as a Keurig machine in the kitchen, a lavish duvet cover, and really comfortable goose down pillows. We were really able to relax and enjoy ourselves. The view from the condo is truly that of a paradise; we breakfasted on the patio, looking out onto the beach, watching the sapphire blue waters glitter under the sparkling sun. The beach is quiet and very relaxing, with natural shade provided by the sea grapes trees. We chose to cook our own meals, which was easy as the condo has a full kitchen with cook top and convection oven. If you wanted to avoid cooking, however, you can be served lunch beach-side from the "Banana Cabana" located right on the beach. They take orders from where ever you are on the beach, and bring it to you, from drinks to meals. Michael's, (the owner) on site assistant was very accommodating. Both were responsive to our requests, and helpful with providing needed information. We went into Red Hook for some grocery shopping, which is also full of many great restaurants. We also took the Safari bus, the local public transportation into Charlotte Amalie, the downtown area full of great shopping and site seeing. As we learned from some of the other guests on the beach, not all of the condos are renovated as they are privately owned, and at the discretion of the owner. This condo is fully renovated with an updated bathroom, kitchen, floor tiles, TV, and kitchen appliances - truly a great deal. We had our best vacation here, very peaceful and relaxing.

Enjoyable beach and nice people

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 40th anniversary during our 10-day stay. The condo looks like the photos, but is not remodeled with quality. Air conditioning proved a problem at the start, and after 3 days and 80 degree temps in the unit it was repaired. All unit lights did not work. One bathroom sink had a very slow drain. Patio has a roof with slats where crumbs from the above condo would slip threw to our deck. Ducks, seagulls, doves, and iguanas were quite entertaining from the deck. There was an outdated, dirty, torn binder in the unit showing things to do that no longer were in operation - tennis courts with cracked surface and weeds sprouting everywhere, marina under renovation since January, restaurant by pool closed many years now, and phone numbers that did not pertain to this condo. We walked up a very steep hill to catch a local "bus" truck for $1 each to go about 1.5 miles to Red Hook - a one-way mode of transportation. Had to taxi back to the resort for $14 per couple. A food store is a mile or so further from Red Hook so we would take the bus there to shop and taxi back for $16 per couple. Food prices are very high. Enjoyed our ferry ride to St. John's where we snorkeled from a non-touristy beach. Spent most of our days sitting on a lounge chair reading along the Sapphire beach, or snorkeling. We saw a couple sea turtles and a sting ray with colorful fish over 8 days of snorkeling. Even though the coral had been damaged by humans, it was fun to do this activity. It felt like a resort that in its day was really something, suffered a decline, and is being slowly revived. It would have been helpful if we brought our laptop for searching what to do, where to eat, where to shop, etc. We felt at a loss when it came to planning adventures, so resorted to a restful time. You can eat light meals and drinks at two small outdoor canteens - one on the way to the beach and the other a BBQ area at the top of the hill where you wait for a bus. They closed by 4 p.m. each day. There is no room service or housekeeping. If you are okay with a quiet vacation, this place is for you. This was my husband's best vacation ever!

Perfect Condo for wonderful vacation

  • 5 out of 5
Me, my wife and our 12y/o daughter spent 6 days at this condo and could not have been happier with our choice. Just perfect!

The owner Michael was extremely helpful with any information and advises he gave us.
Norma (condo manager) was also very responsive and informative too regarding any questions we had during our stay.

The Condo
The condo was exactly as described and more. It is very clean, provides everything to make your own meals, nicely tiled shower with a seat and inviting island like furniture and colors. 2 TVs with dozens of channels and DVD player are available.

The balcony itself has wonderful north east view of Sapphire beach and St. John.
Condo also offers a safe and snorkeling equipment, which I strongly recommend to use while there. Don't forget the sunscreen! 50+

There is nice multi level pool with a view on the east side.

Sapphire Beach
To snorkel there you don't have to be good swimmer or not swimmer at all if you wear life jacket. There are no waves and you can enjoy watching the corals and various tropical fish in water up to your waist. If you skirt along the coral reef starting from building A and going East you will see various coral, fish, occasionally small sting rays, squids and small barracudas. Or you can just hang on the white sanded beach and have a drink while watching an iguana taking casual stroll along the trees.


Sea Turtles
The easiest way to spot sea turtle was Bolongo Bay(by taxi), small beach left from the dock in the middle. Grassy ocean bottom about 20-30 feet in (5-6ft deep) snorkel around until you spot them. Magnificent 3-4 feet long 'flying' in the water :)

Transportation
If you don't rent a car main form of transportation on the VI is taxi. The rate is per person. Most of them are Ford vans. There is another form of taxi called safari or dollar taxi. They look like pickup truck with seats and roof wielded on. These are your best way of transportation to Red Hook, Tutu Mall etc. They go round clockwise and cost you a dollar per person.
In Red Hook there is a ferry to other VIs. 7$ to St. John(must see!).

Shopping
If you planning making your own meals and don't want to waste money get a safari to Tutu mall. There is K-Mart and big food/grocery/beer store and its prices are twice less than Food Center store. If you want to shop for souvenirs, jewelry, etc.. taxi to Charlotte Amalie is your best bet.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed her for a short 3 night trip. Lovely condo just steps from the water. Condo was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We had a car and enjoyed traveling on the steep, curvy roads exploring St Thomas. We packed a lot into our short visit. Thank you so much for your communication and making this an easy transaction. Highly recommend!!

Great Condo

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I had amazing time at Sapphire and at Michael's Condo.
Everythink in the condo was the way was descreibed by the owner.
We liked to have our meals at the deck facing the beach and enjoy the view of the beach.

Sapphire Beach is very unique and special. We have traveled a lot around the world and I would say Sapphire is on the top of list.

The condo location is perfect about thirty five feet away from the beach. You can jump in the water and see amazing coral reefs and aqua life.

Michael we will certainly be back. Cannot wait to come back.
