Perfect Location, Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed staying in this condo. It had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable..and the VIEWS from both balconies....AMAZING! This stay truly felt like a vacation with everything that was provided! The reference list and discounts to supplies of all sorts, made the stay flawless! We loved the convenience of this location to everything too. We had accessibility to snorkeling, paddle boats, jet skis, parasailing, the pool, etc within steps. The Banana Cabana, downstairs was very convenient and offered good burgers! Sapphire Marina was also within steps for all types of excursions. Our favorite little spot became the Sapphire Bar and Grill. It reminded us of the Cheers tv show, where everybody knows your name. lol Great friendly service, great stories, and awesome wings and chicken strips! The marina manager also gave my kids the a tip about how to call the fish to you when snorkeling---dog biscuits...and it works!! hahaha Also the proximity to the American Yacht Harbor was great. Here we found other restaurants, shopping, coffee etc! We couldn't have been happier staying here! I wish we could have stayed longer! There was so much to see and do and time just went by too fast! Thank you Lise for sharing your villa in paradise!

Amazing Condo with Breathtaking View and Beach

  • 5 of 5

I tend to keep things short and sweet so here we go...

You couldn't ask for a more attentive host than Lise. She responds quickly and with accurate and professional information or advise. The condo is exactly as listed and more. It is clean, has all of the amenities needed to cook, enjoy the beach, etc. The location of the condo was perfect for our stay... all of the great beaches were very close and we liked the community of Red Hook. Our mornings were spent on the patio enjoying the view and my daughter made "friends" during our stay with the gecko that would come and see us each morning as well as a friendly morning dove that would eat potato chips out of her hand... she named them "Gek" and "Chippy". The beach at Sapphire is fantastic for swimming and snorkeling and we felt blessed to be staying someplace that would allow us to enjoy and walk right back to our room when needed! The only complaint that I have about Sapphire is the pool area which is very run down. The pool itself is fine but the surroundings are drab... It appears that there used to be a beach bar attached but it is no longer running. With this said, I was initially worried because my 4 year old normally likes pools better than the ocean but this was not the case in St. Thomas because the ocean water was so warm and clear and she loved swimming with the fish. Therefore, I only mention this to be honest, but it would not deter our trip to this condo even if there were no pool at all! Thank you for renting your condo to us, Lise. We WILL be back!

Owner's Response: I am so happy you and your family had a wonderful vacation and loved your stay at our condo. Thank you for the nice comments. I am in complete agreement about the closed pool bar/ resturant. Our COA does not own that piece of property but are trying to work with the owner to rent it out and bring it back to life. The pool itself is beautiful located right on the ocean with beautiful views of St John and the British Virgin Islands, I look forward to your return in the future.

Fun in the sun!!

  • 5 of 5

Wake up. Drink coffee and have breakfast on your balcony overlooking the palm trees, crystal blue waters, mangrove trees, and islands in the distance. Put on your bathing suit and head to the beach for sun, snorkeling, swimming, or beach hop all day-- rinse, repeat!!

The condo was exactly as described. My husband, his son (27) and I spent five nights and could not have been more comfortable. Son stayed on the first level and we were upstairs. The balcony was heaven for sitting in the morning with a cup of coffee. One small suggestion is to place a small "hightop" table on the second level balcony between the two chairs for placing coffee cup, because I liked having my breakfast out here too. We stacked the two smaller ones and that was fine. Loved that the chairs were high to allow the full view.

Full kitchen with convection oven (we didn't cook meals- used oven as mircowave a few times), but plenty of dishes and utensils. Having the beach chairs and coolers was wonderful, to take along to the beaches. We brought our own snorkeling masks, but there are plenty available. Wii-fi worked fine in the condo. DISH//satellite was experiencing some difficulty affecting the entire complex. The bed was comfortable and lots of space in the bathrooms. No issues with hot water or water pressure.

The complex is on a beautiful beach, we really couldn't believe how pristine it was every morning looking down on it from the balcony. I say "complex" because even though the Sapphire bills itself as a resort in name there are not a lot of amenities as one would expect at a resort. Our expectations were in line with this. If you need full beach service every day and a pretty pool, it might not be for you. There is the Banana Cabana (great frozen drinks!!), and it is good, definitely on "island time". Lise provided so much information that we knew exactly what to expect. We started referring to her document as "Lise's list" and would not leave home without it! You could not ask for a more responsive owner- she gives new meaning to "insta-reply"!

Some days the far left side of the beach can be heavy with cruise ship passengers, but they don't stay long, and the attendants guide them away from the condo areas. Renting a car made it so easy to explore other beaches, shop, go out to eat, ferry to St. John and exploring beaches there. But the beach you will be on is perfectly lovely also!!! Still craving the milkshakes from "udder delite"!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the nice comments! I'm glad you enjoyed our condo. Good idea for a small hightop table for the upstairs deck, I'll have to start looking for one. I look forward to your next trip back to Sapphire, it was our pleasure having you as our guests!

St Thomas condo review - March 2016

  • 5 of 5

The condo was right on the beach with spectacular views. We never went to the pool but it looked nice. The 2 BA, upstairs/downstairs set up was perfect for our needs. Our 23 year old daughter slept downstairs, while my wife and I slept upstairs. Very un-crowded the entire trip and we had lots of space to ourselves on the beach. Condo was really nice with everything we needed. Took our car on the ferry to St Thomas and it was a great trip. We loved everything about St. Thomas, St. John and this condo. All the info supplied by Lise regarding things to see and do was very helpful. - - Matt from Roswell, GA
