About Mary Logue

My husband and I fell in love with the ocean when we moved from Minnesota to Miami upon graduating from University. We now enjoy our life in North Carolina between the mountains and the beach. We first vacationed as a family in St. Thomas at the suggestion of our son, Eric, who is certified in deep sea diving, in the spring of 1999. It was so incredibly beautiful and enjoyable that we purchased a villa at the lovely Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina. I have since retired from teaching art and my husband has retired to Professor Emeritus status at Duke Medical Center here in Durham, NC. Eric now has a Healthcare Consultant business and is living in Atlanta, GA, enjoying direct flights to STT. Our other son, Sean, a manager at IBM in NC, has joined in this wonderful experience. We all make regular trips to Sapphire Beach together and with friends. Last year, we celebrated the holiday season and our anniversary there and watched the fireworks being set off at St. John on New Year's Eve from our balcony. It remains the best get-away ever!

Mary Logue purchased this condo in 1999

Why Mary Logue chose East End

St.Thomas is that rare place that we enjoy returning to again and again without ever running out of interesting and enjoyable things to do and see. Sapphire Beach is conveniently located for access to shopping, restaurants and other Islands. We have explored St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Tortola, Virgin Gorda plus the caves of Norman Island and love all of the Virgin Islands. We always are happy to return to the incredibly beautiful Sapphire Beach. It's a wonderful place to begin and end each day.

What makes this condo unique

We love our top floor condo in E building for its spectacular view, ocean breezes, and quiet, calming environment. This spacious, well-designed, two-story condo affords us flexibility and comfort. There is no one else above or below the bedroom. One can sleep or work upstairs while another watches TV or enjoys an early morning cup of coffee downstairs. Building E is convenient to the marina, laundry facility, pool, coral reef, and restaurant.

Owner's Response: This couple was also very well prepared. They traveled across the country with parents and young children and succeeded in having an enjoyable stay at Sapphire Beach. I'm grateful to them and happy for them. I hope they will plan a repeat trip in the future. Mary

Another Fantastic Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to one of our favorite places to stay: Cheeseburger in Paradise! The condo is so relaxing and easy to settle in. We love sitting on the deck as the view is incredible and entertaining. We continue to enjoy each and every trip there and experience new and different activities. From all day sailing trips around the island to sitting in Charlotte Amalie Palm Passage outdoor bar to relaxing on Sapphire Beach. Looking forward to our next visit!

Owner's Response: It's wonderful to have guests who return year after year to spend their vacation in our condo. With this special couple, we feel like we're sharing with friends. Since they know what to expect, we're always confident that they will enjoy their stay. We look forward to their next visit as well. Mary and Patrick

Owner's Response: A response such as this is our primary objective. As first time visitors to St. Thomas, this family of four felt the magic of Sapphire Beach and the island. With every visit over the past 16 years, we still feel it as well. We are so very pleased that they have plans to be annual guests at our condo. Relationships formed with repeat guests are very satisfying and rewarding. Mary and Pat

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sapphire Beach for a long weekend and had an absolutely amazing time! The location was perfect and we found it extremely difficult to leave. The condo was exactly what we were looking for and the description on the website was 100% correct. The Condo was clean, provided towels, snorkel gear, comfortable sleeping arrangements, ect. Mary was extremely accomodating before and throughout our stay at her condo, which made the experience that much easier.

The views are beautiful from the condo and you are located near anything you could possibly want to do (shop, eat, boat, ferry to St. John). I highly recommend staying at this location and hope to come back soon! Thanks again Mary for letting us stay at your Condo!

Owner's Response: I am so very pleased to know that our condo met the needs and expectations of this group of women friends. I am careful to provide photos and information that are thorough and accurate to attract guests who want what I have to offer. During the exterior renovation of building E this summer, I am scheduling interior refurbishment and redecorating. The gorgeous beach and view will remain. I hope these young women will return for another stay at this place I love. Mary

The perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

It sure was hard to leave this condo. All week, we kept saying, “we chose the best place, with the best view”. Absolutely amazing view! And only 5 minutes' drive or taxi to Red Hook's shopping, dining, and the ferry to St. John! It's not too far to walk, but I wouldn't recommend it at night because the road has no shoulders, sidewalks, or streetlights. (We rented a car from Discount Car Rental and were very pleased.)

Being next to the small, very attractive marina was fantastic. Besides watching the beautiful boats coming and going, there are numerous charter trips out of the marina...fishing, sightseeing, sailing,etc. We took the New Horizons/Breakaway cruise to the British Virgin Islands… had a really fun time and saw more incredible scenery. Beware, on the islands, rum is cheaper than the mixers, so they make the drinks strong...and dangerously delicious!

We snorkeled in 4 different places: 1) right out front, 2) off the larger Sapphire Beach, 3) Coki Beach, and 4) near Marina Cay on the NewHorizons/Breakaway cruise. While the coral wasn’t as pretty and the water wasn't quite as clear, we saw a wider variety, and more, fish right in front of the condo. Our daughter loved the cute trunk fish…which we didn’t see anywhere else.

One day, we took the 20 minute ferry to St. John and did a jitney sightseeing tour…very nice way to get an overview of that beautiful island. The ferry is $14 round trip. The tour was $25/person + tip. Lunch at High Tide and dinner at Rhumb Lines - excellent.

We want to thank you, Mary, for sharing your condo with us and for all you did to make our stay relaxing and comfortable…like supplying the paper products, the spices, Brita filter, coffees, beach towels, snorkel gear, etc. …and of course the Cruzan and mixer! What a great surprise (and fun way to start off the vacation) that was! This was the best-outfitted accommodations we've ever experienced. The only complaint I can think of was the sleep sofa in the living room. It's attractive and great for sitting on, but like most older sleep sofas, it sagged when opened into a bed. It was fine for our daughter, but my wife and I would not have been able to sleep on it.

Whenever we can afford another Virgin Island vacation, we'll be staying here. Hopefully, when we return, the renovations to Sapphire Beach's pool bar and beach cabana will be completed.

Owner's Response: My family and I still find it hard to leave with every visit. There is something magical about looking out over that expanse of ocean and watching the ever changing skies. We, too, enjoy having the marina adjacent to E building for its beauty and available activities. You did the research, asked good questions, and made some smart choices that resulted in an enjoyable and memorable vacation. I was happy to provide support for this purpose. I recently purchased a new, thicker foam/gel mattress for the sofa bed that my husband and I slept on comfortably. I will have the supporting structure checked out. Thank you for alerting me to this as my guests' comfort is important to me. Your favorable assessment and excellent recommendations are greatly appreciated. I do hope you, your wife, and daughter will return for another stay in my condo at Sapphire Beach. I love the happy photo of the three of you. Thank you! Mary

Beautiful condo, weather, and location!! Perfect Honeymoon trip!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a place to go on our honeymoon and came across Mary's listing. From the pictures it looked really good but upon arrival it was perfect! There were all the amenities in the unit that it made it feel like home...but with a much better view!!! Right on the beach with quick access to snorkeling to see the reefs (just a few steps into the sea), snorkeling gear that she graciously provides, and a full binder of local places to visit and some of the "short cuts" to make the vacation go smoothly. Though we didn't get to see much of the islands the notes in the binder helped greatly. Red Hook is a great place to grab a drink, a bite to eat, catch either the car or passenger ferries, and quick access to groceries. We recommend Moe's Market right in town to get items for meals as well as their well stocked liquor store. The bottle of wine and card that she and her husband left us was an extra special touch that never expected but was more than we could have asked for and greatly appreciated. The only thing you need to worry about when staying here is relaxing. Leave the worries at home. We want to come back to St. Thomas again to explore more (barely made a dent in all there is to see in 4 days) and when we do we'll definitely be staying at Mary's condo again!!

Owner's Response: I am always happy to have guests celebrate special occasions at my condo and am pleased to have played host to this charming couple. Although the visit was relatively short, they appreciated what St. Thomas and Sapphire Beach has to offer. I hope to have them back for anniversaries or whenever they want to feel the sunshine of the tropics. My goal is to have guests who love being here as much as I do.
