About Owner/Property Manager
I welcome you to Marina Sea Views and the name says it all! Overlooking the Marina with stunning ocean and island views I couldn't resist purchasing my home in Paradise after living in it as a renter for one year. My dream came true when the seller listed the property for sale and I immediately bought it! I'm so happy living here and it is a pleasure to share it with you when I am away. I want you to enjoy it as much as I do. Even though you may be in this home for a short time you will cherish the memories of meals on the balcony overlooking the marina. I love my morning coffee as the sun rises each day. I watch the water views for hours while relaxing in the chaise lounge and pretending to read but instead finding myself mesmerized by the views or dozing off lulled by the sound of the water lapping against the boats docked below. I travel often for business and my travels are reflected in the artwork collected and displayed in the home and, as an artist myself, my personal art pieces are inspired by the beauty of the Virgin Islands.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Owner/Property Manager chose Estate Smith Bay
This condo is ideally located near the beach and the gorgeous pools that make this a life in Paradise. People are friendly and Sapphire Village is visited by people from all over the world.

What makes this Condo unique

The unit is also a short walk to the laundry room and the pool; just a short stroll to the beach; or a 2 minute ride by taxi to Red Hook village. We have constant, cooling ocean breezes from the balcony as an added plus!
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
The property had amazing views of the marina and St. John. Easy access to freshwater pools and nice beaches. Easy access to taxis to Red Hook and back ranging from $1 to $5 each way.
Bed was very comfortable and the condo was cozy. The unit is on the end of the bldg so plenty of quiet and privacy.
Perfect Condo in St. Thomas
We stayed in this Sapphire Village condo for a month and it was perfect for us. The location of Sapphire Bay is centrally located to Red Hook, Smith Bay beaches, Downtown and the North beaches of Magens Bay and Hull Bay. The "home" beach at Sapphire is wonderful also, with a beach bar and live music a couple of times a week and special Sunday menus.
The condo itself is also located perfectly within the complex. Marina front, with beautiful sunrises from your private balcony, across from the pool, the office for mail, the laundry room, and "Slice VI" the restaurant and bar.
The unit is quaint and cozy. The owner, Marie, supplies everything you can think of, including beach chairs, a cooler, beach towels, toiletries, a welcome basket and a chilled bottle of wine!
The kitchen and bathroom could stand some updating, but they were more than sufficient for our needs.
Marie was friendly and very responsive throughout the entire rental process.
Enjoyed our stay!
We totally enjoyed our stay.
Thank you Marie!
You were fabulous guests! Thank you for the kind words! Thanks for letting me know about the chipped glas so that I can replace it quickly! I’m glad you trusted our speedy recovery at Sapphire Village after the storms. I was happy you had a great time!
Well Appointed Condo!
We really enjoyed this condo. It had everything you could need on a beach vacation and more (towels, snorkels, sunscreen, beach chairs, etc). The kitchen was also very well suited for cooking. Marie left us a bottle of wine for our arrival. There were also water bottles available for us. The condo had all the comforts of a home, and it was easy to tell that Marie put in a lot of effort to make it this way. The Sapphire Village pool was very nice, and the condo was very close to it and the restaurant. The beach was about a 5-8 minute walk away. The only minor complaint we had was that the TV in the bedroom did not have cable. It did have netflix, but the island internet was spotty and didn't always work for us. Thank you for providing us with such a lovely and cute place to stay on St. Thomas!
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! It was a pleasure to host you! Thank you for the feedback about the TV in the bedroom. Most of my guests surveyed said they were exhausted at the end of the day in the sun and rarely watched TV in bed so to keep the rental fee at a minimum Roku is provided in the bedroom to watch preferred internet provider programs such as Netflix, HULU, etc. Other upgrades are in progress in the unit this Spring and I hope you will return to enjoy another vacation here!
Perfect, Relaxing and Fun
What a view, serenity at it's best. The unit offered everything you could want. Restaurant just steps away, with great food. Highly recommend
this property!!! Marie is a gracious Host, she provides things even you forget!! Thank you Marie for sharing with us.
Thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure to extend the condo and you were such great guests!!! Best wishes to you in all your travels!
We loved this condo... it was perfect, in the right location and very private. The welcome basket was a nice touch upon our arrival. The kitchen was lovely and fully equipped - a true home away from home. Marie was hospitable and definitely thought of everything, because the the condo was very organized and true to its standard. I was glad we didn't have to worry about where we stayed, considering we were visiting to participate in a large, stressful event. I really hated to leave the condo..the water view was so serene and peaceful, esp early morning and night when we got home to rest.
It was a pleasure to share the condo and I thank you for giving me valuable feedback! You were excellent guests and I hope you come again!
