We had a great stay. The unit we stayed in was convenient and very clean. The beach was a couple minute walk which was perfect. The trips we went on had the friendliest people and we met people from all over the country. Taxi service was reasonably priced and for us better and cheaper than renting a car. I would definitely rent the condo we stayed in and would highly recommend it. Thank you for everything:)
We had a amazing time here. The location is perfect for excursions. Close to Red Hook and easy to get to just about any where you need to go. Sapphire beach was great. We also took a boat trip to the British Virgin Islands and snorkeling right from Sapphire Marina. The condo was just perfect for what we needed.
Everything you need to relax and enjoy your vacation. And everything works as it should. This is a well cared for home comfortable and close to the beach and Red Hook. The owners are quick to respond and very helpful. Thanks for everything!!!
Unit was very clean and well equipped. Having the grill/restaurant/bar on the property is very convenient if you are not up for going out. The pool area is nice but little shade. The beach is a short walk. It is a PUBLIC Beach. At first we felt that perhaps it was really the beach belonging to the other Sapphire Property (red roofs) but we were assured it was public. Lounge chairs are available for rent $9 for the day. The unit was supplied with folding chairs so we just took those and found nice shade under a tree on the beach. There is a Dive Shop where you can purchase snacks, beer as well as rent snorkel gear etc. Again, our Unit was equipped with snorkel gear and fins so we were all set. On Tuesday, the beach was very crowded as a Carnival Cruise ship dropped their passengers off - public beach, remember?
The unit was on the lower level, facing the marina. So there was a view, but it was mostly of the hedge surrounding the marina and the boats. Also we were surprised by the number of mosquitos given how nice and breezy it was - so be prepared for some bites.
Having the marina right there is a plus as you can walk over and book a boat tour, parasail or jet skis.
Red Hook is very near by. We went in twice for dinner and once for the ferry to St John. We rented a car which we found to be very convenient. You must KEEP LEFT and beware that the road are very narrow and can have steep hills. We did fine with a Toyota Corolla, didn't need a Jeep.
The round trip on the ferry was $50. It is a barge ferry - you drive on and stay in your car. Driving on St John is more VERY STEEP hills and switch backs. We went to Cinnamon Beach which was fabulous. You can rent paddle boards and Hobie Cats there.
I was there during a tropical storm and felt completely safe. It was close to places to eat and even the bar on the property was open to make sure that we could eat and were informed. Everything was as mentioned. Condo was clean and we truly enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely rent again if I ever return to St. Thomas. Wonderful view.
