“Sheri's by the Sea in Crystal Cove”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

My family had a great place to stay on beautiful Sapphire Bay in St. Thomas, USVI at Sheri's by the Sea. The condo comfortably accommodated my wife, 2 girls and I for 9 days. We enjoyed a scenic view of the crystal clear waters of Sapphire Bay from our living room. The family enjoyed daily snorkeling trips to the beach that was only 75 yards from our front door. The beach offers a full service water sports desk to rent trips and equipment for just about anything you would want to do. Sapphire beach is particularly blessed with a substantial Sea Turtle population thanks to its abundant sea grass patches they feed on. Sheri's by the Sea is a couple of miles from Red Hook Bay which rightfully boasts a lively night life, shopping and eateries.

My husband and I are lucky enough to travel often and have numerous experiences in different lodgings. We visited St. Thomas previously and had a nice visit, but wanted something "more". Trip Advisor has not steered me wrong, and the reviews on B-11 were right on target. Our stay here was July 26-Aug 1, 2012. What a great experience!! Truly a fantastic deal on a great place! The owners, Honey and Steve obviously work hard to make their vacation home warm and welcoming. Steve was very communicative and thorough will all the details. We arrived to a clean, cool, and spacious unit that has a nice view of the ocean -- you are literally a hundred steps from the sand! So awesome. It truly felt like I was visiting someone's home - the unit itself is a nice size, featuring a king size bed (very comfortable), 2 murphy beds (twin size, also thick plush mattresses) and a futon in the bedroom. There are two full sized bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a shower/bathtub (VERY important I have a bathtub to soak in on vacation!). This place has a small but very ample kitchen, including many extras - pots/pans, dishes, coffee maker, etc. They even have a BRAND new stove. We cooked several meals. Also another super plus is the full sized washer/dryer in the unit - I was able to wash clothes and come home with no laundry to do! Steve and Honey graciously provide many extras - lots of beach towels, pool toys, snorkel equipment, extra blankets/pillows (clean/fresh/new). They have a huge DVD library and many many books for extra entertainment; we spent our late nights watching "Planet Earth" and "Finding Nemo" on the big screen TV in the living area. There is also a nice patio area in the back to hang wet swimsuits and towels. Included in this unit is an outside grill - we did not grill but noticed lots of other families. The location itself is gorgeous - Sapphire Beach is beautiful and clean. We enjoyed great snorkeling right off the beach, swimming with 2 sea turtles, a sting ray, and a baby barracuda! There are also (free for guests, but it's good to tip the attendant) beach chairs that are clean and plentiful. We had such a great time we are hoping to make this a yearly trip. I just hope they're not all booked up, because this is a super place to stay!! Thank you, Steve and Honey, for allowing us to visit your beautiful home. PS. The area is gated, and we felt super safe, even in the late evenings.

Room Tip: Stay in B-11 (no doubt)

We visited St. Thomas a few years ago and stayed at the Ritz Carlton and the Marriott Frenchman's Reef. My wife and I are in agreement that this was a more enjoyable experience. It felt like we were at home. We had a nice kitchen with all the cooking utensils and spices we needed to be able to cook healthy, less expensive meals. We were 100 steps from the beach. The beach was very well taken care of with plenty of shade from the mangrove trees, nice lounge chairs, and a nice cantina with excellent rum punch just a short walk away. We just got home yesterday and are already planning our next trip back to the Virgin Islands. B-11 will be part of our plans from now on. No housekeeping services or someone knocking on your door for a tip 3 times a day. Some may not like this, but we loved it!

Room Tip: Large 1 room villa that sleeps 5 comfortably.

Truly a "bargain on the beach"! We stayed in B-11 from July 2nd - 9th and had a wonderful time. It was not our first trip to St. Thomas but was our first time staying in B-11. We chose B-11 because of all the great reviews and we were not disappointed. The owners, Honey and Steve are wonderful and will quickly respond to any questions or concerns you may have. The unit was clean and nicely decorated and stocked with everything you will need. We had a great vacation and would not hesitate to come back to B-11.

An important part of being a teacher is summer vacation! Each year a group of friends head out for some beach time as soon as school is out. This year we chose St. Thomas. We couldn't have been more pleased with our rental of unit B-11. When Steve and Honey say it is fully stocked they MEAN it. Plenty of linens, beach towels, snorkel gear for all! We also enjoyed the books and movies they provided. This unit is clean and well kept. We were provided with tons of information before our trip to help with our planning. We chose not to rent a car, and next time we probably will. Since we are all very active and walk/run we thought getting into Red Hook on foot wouldn't be a problem. The distance was no problem, it was the safety that kept us from walking. There are very narrow shoulders on the road and cars drive very fast. We found a taxi driver we could call and he readily came and got us. We also took the "safari" bus in several times. Thanks Steve and Honey! B-11 was perfect!

Just got back from a great week-long stay at unit B-11 at Crystal Cove. The unit was just as advertised on HomeAway (Listing# 245229) and was fully stocked with everything our family needed. The unit was clean and well-maintained and came complete with tons of snorkel gear, beach towels, floats, and a huge selection of movies and books. The owners, Steve and Honey, really care about the condition of their unit and about everyone staying there having a wonderful experience. They provided us a wealth of information before our trip and checked in on us during our stay to make sure everything was going well.

B-11 is right on Sapphire Beach. It was our two boy's first time to snorkel and we couldn't have picked a better spot for their first experience. We saw sea turtles, eagle rays, sting rays, and tons of reef fish right off the beach. The nearby marina also had jet ski rentals and parasailing. I would definitely recommend Sapphire and B-11 to anyone looking for a great unit on a postcard perfect beach.
