Overview

Photos and Description of this Red Hook holiday condo

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Feel the breeze and gaze at St. John from the porch of this newly renovated condo. A 15 step distance to the waters edge to enjoy a swim or snorkel in one of the most breathtaking coral reefs in St. Thomas. If you would like to go fishing or enjoy a boat ride around the islands, there is a marina right next to the condo. All kinds of kid friendly activities will keep the young ones amused while you enjoy a fruity drink next to the 2-tier pool that overlooks the ocean.

Great restaurants and shopping nearby. Local attractions including an aquarium with hands-on exhibits. Safe environment for families with children. Many weddings have been accommodated on the 'point' overlooking the coral reef

All kinds of kid friendly activities will keep the young ones amused while you enjoy a fruity drink next to the 2-tier pool that overlooks the ocean. Your waterfront suite comes fully equipped; custom kitchen with new appliances and cabinets; newly tiled bathroom with updated fixtures; flat screen televisions; new sliding glass doors and screens; and many other upgrades. Sapphire Beach resort and marina are situated on the eastern end of the island. Just minutes to the the town Red Hook where you can find fine dining, shopping, a grocery store, sports bar, pizza, and live music. For the adventurous type there are many attractions including Blackbeard's Castle, sky tram, underwater submarine tour, and a hands-on aquarium. There are many boat excursions and ferries to the BVI and other islands for a day hike or other activities. So much to do and see or just feel the breeze and sun in this awesome island oasis.

About Lee Passios

I live in Connecticut with my 2 children..11 and 16.

Lee Passios purchased this condo in 2011

Why Lee Passios chose East End

There is something very special about Sapphire beach. Within 4 months of my first visit to sapphire i was back down buying a unit in building E

What makes this condo unique

I go down every 4/5 months and make sure the condo is up to my standards. It is very important to me that this feels like 'home' to my guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In response to this 1 bad review after 3 years of renting, my belief is that this couple are miserable to begin with. They stayed 2 hours. They never gave Sapphire a chance, and experienced its TRUE beauty. When they arrived there were keys in the door and the cleaning lady was next store. If they had bothered to bring a copy of their contract which contains all the pertinent information, they would have know this. I never pretended to be the Ritz- Carlton. This is a quiet waterfront condo that has its own security staff. The water is pristine with a thriving reef in front. Sapphire is a very special place. I am not sure what these renters standards are?! I am down there every 4 to 6 months. I bring quality towels, linens, knives etc. Just read all my past reviews and you will see how awesome Sapphire really is. Sincerely, Lee the owner

Great spot with direct water access...

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful spot though beach lounging and swimming is better a short walk up the beach, for snorkeling...great spot. Close access to a pool/patio area was a plus. The unit itself was very well appointed and equipped...this was our 4th visit to Sapphire Beach, although hurricane season, the weather was great if not too humid...in our experience, best time to visit Dec-April. Was a nice touch to have an on-island contact/property manager who was very accomodating.

Owner's Response: thank you for the review. The snorkeling is amazing, and to be able to walk out the door and jump in is what makes Sapphire such a special place. I look forward to hosting you for a 5th visit. Sincerely, lee

Amazing view and condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect to be able to sit right at the beach and enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sunset. It is just the right size, has all the amenities one would need, and the owner Lee is so friendly and helpful and truly wants her guests happy.

We didn't rent a car and it's right next door to a marina where you can walk to catch a sunset cruise or excursion. A quick taxi ride takes you to lots of tours, restaurants and great beaches.

We will be returning for sure!

Owner's Response: There is nothing better than enjoying your coffee watching the sun come up over St. John. I am so happy I could accommodate you after all your flight cancellations (due to hurricane Matthew). I look forward to your return. Sincerely, lee

Great View, Great Snorkling, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property is a great communicator and she genuinely seems to care about the guests who rent from her. To me, that is always the most important factor when renting a place via a website like this.

The view of St. Johns and other Islands from this location is amazing. Some parts of this complex is under renovation but the beach and views were not affected and this unit is pretty far way from the construction area. You can snorkel in the water that you see in these pictures. This location is about 5 minutes away from the Ritz-Carlton or about a $10 cab ride.

I suggest planning ahead with the grocery shopping since it does require a cab ride.

Safire beach condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this beautiful beach condo. We especially enjoyed being right on the beach and close to the pool. We just wished there was a breakfast Cafe or restaurant on the property. But we had a blast!

Owner's Response: Sapphire is growing and renovating with each year. Soon enough there will be a restaurant at the pool and by building A. St. Thomas runs on "island time'" so things take a little longer but the changes have begun. i hope you will come back in a year or two and see the results. Thank you for the review. Sincerely, lee

Even better than our high exectations

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, excellent place for a family of four (two teenagers) who wanted to open our doors and walk out onto a gorgeous beach. Lee is an excellent owner who takes care of her place and her customers.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the taking the time to review. Having teenagers myself i know how difficult planning a vacation with them can be. I am glad you had some family time and look forward to you coming back in the future. Sincerely, Lee

Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

Condo was nice and clean. Beautiful view and access to beach. The only problem was the "hard-as-a-rock" mattress which was horrible. It's a shame that the complex is deteriorating because it's a great condo and great location. It could really be something.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review. I'm sorry that you did not find the mattress to be comfortable. Buying a mattress for a rental can be a tricky purchase. What is a perfect match for one is sometimes the worst for another. Sapphire is undergoing a renovation. The buildings are getting their facelift and the property as a whole will be seeing many changes. I hope you come back to see its progress. Sincerely, lee
