Really nice property!
My husband and I stayed here the first week in July, and absolutely loved it! The unit is exactly what the pictures show and is everything it leads you to believe it is. The unit was clean, and very well appointed. Everything the description says is there, really is there. The kitchen had everything needed to make simple meals, and even had a hot air popcorn popper (I mention this, as popcorn is one of my favorite snacks, and had I known it was there, I would have brought kernels with me). It was nice, and convenient, to have a cooler and beach chairs available. The bed was comfortable, and the linens and towels were all soft. The owner, Chuck, was very responsive when I needed to learn how to work the AC when we first got there. I texted him, and he got back to me in less than five minutes. He also sent a letter about a week before giving very detailed information, not only about the property, but information for getting around the island, where to get food, some restaurant suggestions, and local customs and norms. Now, some tips and tricks for anyone looking to go. Nothing seems to happen early in the morning here, so it’s a great time to hit the beaches. We went to Coki beach around 9 am, and had the place entirely to ourselves, except for folks that work there, until about 11:30. It was amazing! The snorkeling was cool, and when there is no one else around, it felt truly like paradise. One of the highlights of our trip. It's a popular destination for cruise ship passengers, so once they got there, it was too crowded to enjoy. Also, because we do tend to get up early, most mornings we packed some things in a cooler and headed to Sapphire beach. Again, generally had the place to ourselves for quite awhile before people started showing up. We did run into a bit of a problem our first morning there, trying to get some groceries. We took the Safari, and had to sit up front with the driver, as it was packed. I told him we wanted to go to Moe’s for some groceries, he nodded, and I thought he understood. Apparently not, as he drove right through Red Hook. I then saw the larger grocery store, just a bit further away, and asked if he could stop, so we could shop there. He shook his head and kept going. He took us into Charlotte Amalie, pulled over at a Pueblo grocery store, simply saying “groceries here.” Not sure what that was all about, so just be aware. I would absolutely recommend this property, and if we find ourselves back in St
Fabulous marina and ocean views.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Sapphire Beach condos. Our unit was just as pictured. We had a great view of the ocean from our room and the balcony. The landscaping throughout the property was lovely. We enjoyed the pool one afternoon with only 2 other guests there at the same time. The unit itself has an updated shower and kitchen that are in great shape. All of the furniture was clean and comfortable. We were able to AC the room quickly and comfortably. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to my friends. There was also an oscillating fan if needed for those who use one to sleep. I noticed this because I travel with a relative who sleeps with one and this made me think of her.
What a great unit! The condo was immaculate, comfortable and perfectly located in the complex. The attention to detail and the comfort of their guests was much appreciated by us. Just steps from the pool and Slice IV restaurant made it even more wonderful. Having a delicious place to eat on the property was an added bonus. Would highly recommend staying here, we will stay again!
5 stars all around! At the airport now wishing I was not leaving!!
I’m going to try to be descriptive as possible in helping you get a feel for your vacay! This place is a little slice of Heaven. Chuck was extremely responsive, informative, & an all around great host. The moment you walk in, draw back the curtains, & take in the view for the first time is breathtaking. We spent several mornings & evenings on the deck watching the marina & the water. The bed was super comfortable & the entire place was spotless. The kitchen was fully stocked, although we did no cooking, he had everything you could possibly need down to clips for chip bags & extra sandwich bags. I was a little worried that we were so close to the pool, but the pool is across the parking lot & further from the condo than I expected. We actually never heard any noise from it! Right next to the pool is Slice. We ate here several times on our stay due to it being so convenient. We greatly enjoyed the buffalo chicken pizza, the chicken sandwich, & a bushwhacker to drink. We ended up getting a rental car after reading several reviews & were very happy we did. Solely due to the convenience of not having to wait for a cab or the safari bus was well worth it. I will say they do drive on the left side of the road here, so that was an adjustment, but also..the roads here are very different. Lots of pot holes, super sharp turns, very few stop lights & stop signs (unless you’re downtown), & extremely narrow roads with your tire maybe a few feet from the edge of a cliff. It definitely was a little nerve wrecking driving from the airport to the condo, but once you get on the two laned paved roads, it’s fine! Definitely recommend renting a car! The town of Red Hook is maybe a five minute (if that) drive from the condo. We went to Moe’s for groceries. It wasn’t as expensive as we had thought. The restaurants in Red Hook were reasonably priced. Maybe a few dollars more expensive than restaurants back home. You have to go to Duffy’s for a drink. Their drinks come in take home mugs & overall have a fun atmosphere! You have to try a burger & fries at Tap and Still! We also enjoyed Island Time Pub for pizza & drinks. That place has a great view of the marina & even has Kenny Chesney’s boat parked in it! Checkout Ocean Surfari for snorkel gear. Only a 5 minute walk to Sapphirre beach. This beach had a bar & live music somedays. Lindquist beach was a five minute drive. Very calm and great snorkeling! Neither beach was overcrowded and gorgeous views at both! Great trip!!!
Holly - we are more than pleased to read about your great time staying with us at Sapphire Village, the unit accommodations and the terrific/valuable information you took time to share with future guests regarding restaurants, Red Hook, car rental, and the beaches. Thank you and pray if your travels ever bring you back to St. Thomas you will consider staying with us again.
Great location being in the Saba building. Close to pool and restaurant along with the beach. Good accommodations with beach chairs, towels and coolers. Owner is very responsive to questions or concerns.
We are pleased you described the accommodations as "GREAT" - inside and out of the unit - with no problems or negative reports. We strive to make everything perfect for our guests and a FIVE STAR rating - as our previous reviews.
My husband and I came here for an early 30th anniversary trip. Can't say enough great things about this property. The views from the balcony are gorgeous and being on the third floor, end unit is a plus. The condo itself was clean, well stocked, and spacious enough for 2 for the week. Another huge plus is the use of beach chairs and a cooler, game changer.
Sapphire Village is well maintained and the beach is crystal clear. The pools are also great. The beach bar has a great atmosphere (although they do close the kitchen a little too early) with live entertainment a couple of nights per week. Very convenient to get to Red Hook by safari and then the ferry to St Johns.
Overall I would give it an A+ and we look forward to coming back next year.
Beläget i den önskvärda östra änden av ön, mindre än en mil från Red Hook - platsen för färjan till St. John och många restauranger och nattklubbar.
