About Linda Rosskothen

We love the Virgin Islands and the location of our condo in St. Thomas. It is so relaxing! We enjoy going to the beach all day and doing very little, mostly reading and swimming. At night time we often go to a restaurant, the dining choices are incredible (our favorites are Alexander's Bella Bleu in French Town, Pesce in Red Hook or a night out in St. John). Our daughters are big fans of the area and enjoy spending the time with us, Duffy's Love shack is their favorite hang out at night!

We have enjoyed updating our condo over the last few years, everything is brand new and we especially love the fact that we now have two bedrooms for our guests and family. Enjoy! Linda & Peter

Excellent Location and Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in your beautiful condo. It is in the most excellent location. The condo affords beautiful views from the decks of not only Sapphire Beach but the islands of St. John and beyond. We were close to the dive center for our dive trip and close to Sapphire Marina where we took our charter trip to snorkel in the BVI. I was comfortable with our teenage children going out to the beach by themselves if we wanted to hang out on the deck. The condo had everything we needed. This was our third trip staying on St. Thomas and I can highly recommend this VRBO vacation home as an excellent place to stay.

Best condo in this price range, period.

  • 5 of 5

What a great location, the pictures just don't do it justice... and the pictures are fabulous. It's right on the beach! We stayed in a condo in a different location last year and had a good time, but this is much better. The beach is outstanding, with a small beach bar and a rental shop for kayaks, snorkel gear, etc. Chairs were provided for condo residents and guests, and we learned right away to get a spot with shade early in the day. The beach chair guy will carry them to your spot, you hold them with your towels, and you're good for the day to come and go as you like. The people in the management office were nice and helpful (it's where you get your beach towels). With the condo just 50 feet from our spot, what could be better? We found out that Tuesday was going to be the busiest for taxi-loads of people from the cruise ships, so we picked that day to go to St. John (Trunk Bay is busy on cruise ship days, but there's so much more to explore).

Did I mention that the condo is right on the beach?? We never did use the pool. It's a longer walk to the pool than the beach, so why bother. Two bedroom condos at a decent price are few and far between, and this one was recently remodeled and is well taken care of. Full kitchen is well supplied, except for soup bowls. Housekeepers came in half way through our week and changed linens. TV has a full line up of channels, but the only time it was on all week was Sunday so that our daughter could watch Walking Dead. The owners added lots of nice touches, like books and games to play. There was coffee and filters in the cabinet, and ice already made in the freezer. Only 2 (minor) issues: the screen doors are hard to open and close, and I wish we could use the washer and dryer. There's laundry available across the parking lot at the marina, however.

Thank you Peter and Linda for the use of your condo, it was great. Even our teenage daughter had a good time. We'll be back!

Excellent Time

  • 5 of 5

Great condo with large lanai featuring fantastic views. Great location close to Red Hook. Friendly staff in the management office and at the beach. No beach peddlers like you see in Mexico, which makes it relaxing while at the beach.

Another great stay.

  • 5 of 5

Fifth year staying at this wonderful condo. Close to Red Hook, great beach, best snorkeling. Condo is nicely decorated, kitchen is well equipped, extra beach needs ( soft cooler, chairs,floaties) available. Great view of STJ and other islands from both decks. Master bedroom is nice but 2nd bedroom is smallish, fine for kids. Very secure, gate guard and beach security. SUP, jet ski and kayak rentals adjacent. On site restaurant and daytime beach bar at hand. Owners are easy to work with. One of very few 2 bedroom options at the most desirable location on the island.

Paradise with a view!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at the Rosskothen's condo for a quick getaway from a very cold and snowy winter. The condo was absolutely perfect, very clean and inviting. The views from the deck were absolutely breathtaking.

The owners supplied beach chairs, cooler and snorkel gear for a day at the beach. The beach and pool are right out your back door. Having the 2 bedroom unit was very convient when traveling with kids and the beds were really comfortable. The unit has been updated recently and you can tell the owners put a lot of time and effort into it. Whenever we had any questions they were very quick to respond. I wish we had stayed longer to enjoy all the condo and the resort had to offer. I would recommend staying at this condo. Can't wait to return to Sapphire Beach!
