Mahogany sliding panels can provide bedroom privacy if needed.Cable TV, WiFi, and a large selection of dvd's and vcr tapes are there for you enjoyment.

Golf at Mahogany Run or if you 'desire' to do some serious shopping Charlotte Amalie is for you (20 minutes from the resort). Duty free shopping at it's finest.

But, 'nothin could be finer' then spending a restful day on our beautiful white sand beach at Sapphire enjoying your favorite drink and sandwiches provided by our own 'Banana Cabana'.

I assure you, you will never be bored at Sapphire on beautiful St. Thomas.

About William R. Bjork

I reside in 'tropical ' Chicago (yea right) and although we have beautiful Lake Michigan, frozen over a bit of the year, there is nothing like the Caribbean!!

William R. Bjork purchased this condo in 2014

Why William R. Bjork chose East End

I never before stayed in a condo that you could hear the melody of ocean so clearly. Walk out of your unit onto the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Large, peaceful,beach with great views from every angle as far as the eye can see.

Wow! What can we say? We had the pleasure to spend christmas and new years week at Bill's place. The bed was very comfortable. The moment you walk in, you are quickly welcomed by the AMAZING view of the beach, palm trees, and ocean. The wrap around porch is great. Bill has board games and cards in his place. We brought our chessboard along with us and played chess out in the patio as we took in the setting sun.

The amenities are great. He has beach chairs...towels..snorkels...coolers..floaties...even an iron and ironing board. The unit felt like home and a place you never want to leave behind. Looking forward to our next visit. Thanks, Bill for providing us with an enjoyable vacation.

I love Bill's place but ..

I love Bill's place. Its clean and has the home touch and the location is great. It's the best place I've found to relax and forget about everyday problems. I just don't want YOU to go there. I want to keep his place for myself :)

Quiet Beachfront Balcony

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as expected -- clean and quaint, with a gorgeous balcony overlooking a relatively quiet beach, with pretty good snorkeling right in your front yard. The restaurant and pool were out of commission, but there is a nice grill stand where you can get lunch and drinks during the day. Red Hook bars and restaurants are very close, but do not try to walk! The road is way too steep, narrow, and curvy to safely walk. Fortunately there's a cab stand at the resort that operates for much of the day, and it is also easy to call a taxi when needed. Long and short: we will almost certainly stay here again if we go back!

The Caribbean Jewel is a Jewel!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a week stay at this condo unit located on the beach at Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina in St. Thomas. It was wonderful. More than we had hoped for. The condo is brightly decorated and very comfortably furnished. It was also very clean and obviously well maintained. The view of the beach and Caribbean Sea from inside the unit and when on the deck is stunning. It was a wonderful view to wake up to every morning! Because this condo is a second floor end unit located towards one end of the beach it had a special sense of privacy which was very nice. We visited most of the big name beaches during our stay including one’s on St. John Island but my wife and I felt Sapphire Beach ranked right up there with the rest. It is a beautiful resort complex and thanks to the owner Bill, the condo came outfitted with everything you need to enjoy yourself during your stay including snorkeling equipment, beach lounges and chairs, and other equipment. Sapphire Beach has great snorkeling and there is also a small surf shop on site that rents kayaks and other watersport equipment which was a wonderful plus. Another thing we really liked is the location. The town of Red Hook and the ferry to St. John and the other islands was about a half mile down the road from the resort. This made things really handy! Other than that, Bill was great to communicate with when we were making arrangements for our visit. He also provided written information about restaurants and the sights to see on St. Thomas which was very helpful. Our stay could not have been made better. Thank you Bill!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the condo. The view is unbelievable, the condo is fully stocked, and check in/check out was a breeze. Three adults stayed here extremely comfortably and we could have probably fit one more. Definitely recommend staying here if you're coming to St. Thomas.

Comfy, cute, everything provided, overlooking the beach

  • 4 of 5

No complaints! Bathroom is nice, decor reflects Carribean style, had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. (I do wish there had been a phone in the unit to make calling local establishments convenient and so as to not use roaming on my cell phone....The stove is kind of old but works fine.) The view from the balcony is so nice. Love Sapphire Beach. Enjoyed the stay!
