Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a getaway for my 50th birthday. Having lived on St. Thomas previously, we knew we wanted something close to Red Hook, restaurants and night life while at the same time being quiet with direct beach access. We wanted to wake and fall asleep to the sound of of the ocean waves. Lise’s condo was exactly what we were looking for and did not disappoint! It had everything we needed, was clean, modern, and the views from each deck were amazing. We loved having coffee off the bedroom deck each morning and dinner off the lower deck after a day at the beach in the evening. Also loved the set up of the unit with the gorgeous bedroom on the second level.

Sapphire Beach Bar was great as well. Close enough to grab lunch/drinks and listen to great music during the day but still enough distance away from the unit for quiet if that’s what you’re looking for.

Lise was great to work with as well. Very friendly, helpful and easy going. We had one issue while there that was completely out of her control but she took immediate action to help remedy the situation as quickly as possible.

I had a wonderful birthday celebration in St. Thomas at a wonderful beachfront condo. We look forward to going back (sooner than later!).

Thank you, Lise, for sharing your condo with us.

Terrific condo with amazing views!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is very well kept, very clean and sits right on the beach. Both balconies are amazing and the views are simply incredible!

The recovery from the hurricane is well underway.

For us, we like relaxing and making our own meals so this place was perfect. It was everything promised as advertised.

Some of the grounds buildings are still not fully functional however the beach bar and grill is up and running and the pool looks terrific. We will be coming back again for sure!!

Beautiful and just as expected

  • 4 of 5

The place was just as expected in the pictures. The place was clean and well cared for and well stocked with everything we needed to cook. The property had some damage to bar by pool and restaurant from the hurricanes but everything was usable. The only negative was that we thought we would be able to walk to town to go to the grocery store and go hang out in Redhook however there were very narrow roads and no area to walk next to the road and cars coming fast around corners so almost impossible to walk to town. We did not Rent-A-Car because we thought this but in retrospect Having a car would’ve been a better idea. We really just wanted to hang out at the beach and swim so this was perfect for us. We did do a couple of excursions and left right out of the Sapphire Bay Marina with breakaway and new horizons and the owner had coupons for the breakaway so it was less expensive. This was really a great experience. I would highly recommend. Any Questions that I had I just texted the owner and she got back to me within the hour with answers so this was really great. I would recommend this place without reservation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments I’m so glad you enjoyed our condo for your vacation. The main restaurant and bar, Sapphire Beach Bar located right on the beach is up and running, I hope you had a chance to enjoy it. The pool bar needs to undergo renovation. But does not take away from the beauty of the pool that is located right on the beach overlooking St John, One of my favorite places to spend the morning! I would love to have you return in the future, it was a pleasure to have you as our guests.

Good times in the Islands!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lise's condo mid January and as in the past, had a fantastic time. We had to postpone our week from Thanksgiving, but Lise was completely accomodating and the process went smoothly. We've reserved rooms thru VRBO previously and have always had excellent results. Lise's room is beautifully furnished and maintained. We felt like we were in the islands as soon as we got thru the door. The kitchen and stone showers are a pleasure to use, and I never get tired of the beautiful blue sky reflected views of " el Carribe " from both balconies ! The grounds have recovered well from the hurricanes and the Island has greened up nicely. Obviously there was damage but the Islands have always come back, and time heals all wounds. Sappihire Beach is a unique location on an island of many beautiful places. What it lacks in amenities ( you will have to leave the resort for most meals other than lunch ), but I will easily trade that for being litteraly a stones throw from the Carribean ! Snorkling is very good to the right of the beach, and the swimming pool is clean and very cool. My kids spent an equal amount of time in both and we never get bored when were down here. Again, we had nothing but good times in Lise's condo and can't wait to return!

Sapphire Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We found this property at Sapphire Beach after the hotel we originally booked for our wedding was damaged by the hurricanes that ripped through St. Thomas. You can imagine our hesitation not knowing what we were getting into, but we didn't want to change our location. Lise was the most communicative and supportive which calmed our nerves almost immediately. We had an amazing experience and got married right on the pier that is on the beach the property was on. Our views were gorgeous to where we would enjoy our coffee or wine right there on the patio and stare at the water. We made friends with some locals that would frequent the beach bar and one even became our witness and signed off on our marriage certificate! We definitely felt very welcomed. Everything was in great working order and we loved the two levels as it allowed us to get ready for our ceremony in different parts of the house. The one drawback for us, we didn't spend enough time at the beach!!! We recommend this to anyone wanting to visit St. Thomas. Relax on the patio(s), swim in the ocean, go to the beach bar and visit Red Hook!

A perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely perfect for an easy vacation! The kitchen is well-equipped and our family had no trouble cooking most meals at home - grocery stores are a quick drive into Red Hook. We put the snorkeling equipment to good use, and were happy to have it available. Plenty of blankets, pillows, coolers for picnics, beach chairs too. There is everything to recommend a stay at Sapphire Beach!
