Bedrooms 1
Space 70 m²
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

As beautiful as Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina are the use of the word resort would tend to indicate something else. The amenities that you would find at an all inclusive are not available at Sapphire. There are no tennis courts or spa. Each condo is individually owned. There is a beachy restaurant at the other end of Sapphire for drinks and pub food. Sapphire is a no-nonsense, peaceful area with some of the best snorkeling and marine life around. The views are unobstructed and the sunrises over St. John are breathtaking. If this is your kind off vacation than this is the place for you. If you would like to go fishing or enjoy a boat ride around the islands, there is a marina right next to the condo. The town of Red Hook is 1/4 mile away where there are many restaurants, nightlife, shopping, grocery store and the ferry to other destinations. It is just that easy for you to 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

Your waterfront condo 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, ZipLining, 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.

Sapphire Beach Delight

  • 5 of 5

My two college-aged children and I very much enjoyed our stay at Sapphire Beach Resort. The well-kept condo is located on along a beautiful beach front with facilities for snacks/drinks and water sports. A great pizza restaurant is located above the property. The condo's location near Red Hook is certainly a plus as is its location near other gorgeous beaches.

A Special Place...

  • 5 of 5

Took my two boys here for a week and couldn't have ask for more!!! Steps from the beach, the pool, the marina next store with amazing views of St. Johns every moment just outside the door. Forget the hotel chains and truly enjoy a home away from home with all the amenities..

Beautiful walk-out unit on lovely Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5

The unit was tastefully decorated, very organized and had all the items that one would need (kitchen accessories, beach towels). The outdoor space is also nice with a table for eating as well as two lounge chairs. You literally walk out of the door and take 5 steps and there is the ocean. The sound of the waves is so soothing. If you are an ocean lover, there is no place in closer proximity.

Sapphire is back!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week here and finalized all little things that needed to be repaired before I rent it out. The power is on! The internet is on! The A/C is on. New couch cushions are on. I have slashed prices in order to get people down here. The restaurants are ready hit the “rent it” button and come down. Lee

PERFECT LOCATION, clean & nicely equipped!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I researched many properties on the ST Thomas USVI and this one was by far exactly what we were looking for. My two MUST HAVES for this stay was easy pool and beach access. The beach was literally stepping off the porch and the water another 20 steps. PERFECT. At first we thought it was a little small (the beach area) but walked down to our left and found the bigger beach (past the pool) with soft sands. But honestly, it was nice to be tucked away from the bulk of the people, and only have a 3 minute walk to more action. The marina is RIGHT next door, which made catching our boat to parasail super easy. (note to self: next time take anti nausea meds prior to sailing!) Thes first pool area doesn't have a bar area. It was actually a little dumpy looking for a 'resort', like it was under construction, which other visitors had said they had been coming for a few years and it had always been like that. Though they kept the pool immaculate . Not having a bar/grille there wasn't a deal breaker, it just would have been sweeter to have that. That being said, there IS a bar/grille by the second pool if you walk up the hill around the marina. It's called Slice. We did that twice and hung around the pool there. (I did like the pool closer to the condo better though. ) As for the condo itself, it was perfect. Lee had everything there needed, cooking supplies, coolers if we wanted to pack things to go to the pool or beach, snorkel gear (though it didn't fit around our faces properly so maybe bring your own?), boogie boards. Snorkeling is AWESOME right there out the back door! We forgot to take the GoPro out to get some images but, you gotta try that! The condo was very clean, bed was comfortable, bath and beach towels provided, and even a pack n play if you have a little one. It really was perfect. We sat on the porch every day and just listened to the waves. What a great landing spot! We walked up the very steep hill to catch the open air local taxi/bus for $1 into Red Hook (5 min ride) and had dinner and shopped and then went to the grocery store to get things for the week so we didn't eat out every meal. Take a regular taxi back because the bus only goes one way around the island and doesn't come down the hill into resort area. (unless you have your own car). We recommend Iggies on a Wednesday night after 7 for fun and entertainment for the whole family. Condo was perfect location, perfectly equipped, and planning a trip again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Julie- Things continue to improve at Sapphire but it is a slow process on this island. This is the reason I address the usage of "resort" in the paragraph describing sapphire on my website. I do look forward to the opening of the pool bar although it will make the pool noiser and more crowded so it is a double-edged sword. I look forward to your return in the future and am glad your trip was a huge success. Sincerely, lee

Excellent location and beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better stocked condo with the perfect beach location. The owner and property manager were fast to respond and super helpful. I've stayed in many units at Sapphire and this is my favorite. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

About Lee Passios

I live in Connecticut with my 2 children..14 and 19

Lee Passios purchased this condo in 2010

Why Lee Passios chose Red Hook

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
