The location of this condo is steps from the beach. The owners, Marc and Nancy, do a wonderful job to assure a pleasant stay. Very clean and well maintained by the caretaker, Norma, who will assist you in any way she can to make sure you have everything you need.
The views of St. John, and other nearby islands are fabulous. Being on the East end of the island, you can enjoy spectacular sunrises in the morning, go swimming, or rent snorkel gear, kayaks, or paddle boards right there on beautiful Sapphire Beach. The marina is within walking distance where you could charter boats for excursions. The town of Red Hook is about a mile away, where you could take the ferry to other islands, eat and drink, or go shopping. I had an amazing time during my stay here and I would recommend this condo rental to anyone who is looking for a nice pleasant stay on St. Thomas. I would definitely love to return again myself.
Just getting settled back in from a late flight last night and already miss the lovely condo we stayed at Crystal Cove and Sapphire Beach (Unit D5). This was a super clean and well appointed condo unit and best of all, there were two separate bathrooms. The unit is very large with a separate front entry area that greets you with two fantastic and comfortable wicker chairs and ottomans to settle in and look out over the bird pond and Sapphire Beach in the distance. The living room area was very comfortable when settling in for a quiet evening and watching TV or listening to music or checking out a good book and DVD provided with the condo. The kitchen is large and there is a full size refrigerator and stove. All the kitchen needs are fully provided and in good working condition. There was ample storage in the hallway closets and plenty of towels both bathroom towels as well as beach towels provided. The bedroom was large as was the very large bed and it had a full on-suite bathroom. The stackable washer and dryer also came in handy. Norma who is the onsite property manager greeted us upon arrival and was very friendly and helpful. The only thing we forgot to check was the safe in the bedroom closet as it was closed and we could not use it and Norma was not sure how to open it. Also would have been nice to have beach chairs provided for day trips to other beaches and perhaps they were but we could not locate them. There is also a back door entry and private gated small back yard with a BBQ if you like to cook on the grill though we did not on this particular stay. Sapphire Beach is just steps away down a walking path and beach chairs are provided at that location and made available at not cost to renters at Crystal Cove. In summary, we HIGHLY recommend this property not only for a romantic couples getaway but also for a family with children given all the storage space and the two bathrooms. We would even recommend it for elderly as the unit is located on the ground level, is spacious, and easy to move around.
Location is great! Condo very clean!! Norma very helpful no problems no complaints highly recommend your unit! Thanks for letting us rent it.
We just returned from another fabulous vacation at Crystal Cove. From the time we booked with Nancy until the time we returned everything was perfect. Upon our arrival everything was open, clean and ready for our stay. Norma was wonderful taking care of any needs we had. We can't wait to go back next year.
My husband and I spent a week at this beautiful condo at Crystal Cove. It is spacious, updated and very well equipped. The furniture is attractive and comfortable. The white tile floors, counters and updated bathrooms are a plus! The owners were gracious and responded promptly to our questions. They have compiled a very informative folder that answers all your questions about local activities, restaurants and shopping. Great for first time visitors! The condo location is just east of Red Hook, so there is easy access to the ferries to St. John. We rented a car, but the local bus stops at the top of the driveway and cabs are available. The beautiful beach is just steps away! It's perfect for any vacation!
I took my girlfriend to St. Thomas for our anniversary and we were looking for a condo near the beach. I found this condo and it looked perfect. We love to cook so we wanted a nice kitchen and it was definitely great for that. The condo was clean and cozy and we had everything that we needed there. It was a very short walk to the beach and we felt like we had the beach to ourselves. There's also a little bar/sandwich spot on the beach too. We checked out a few other beaches on our trip but our beach was definitely the nicest. It was helpful to be near the dollar taxi too to take us to the ferry and into Red Hook for the restaurants, bars and markets since we didn't rent a car. I would highly recommend this place to anyone! It's perfect for two couples or a family. I can't wait to get back for another anniversary!
My husband and our three young daughters stayed three nights as part of our trip before heading off to the sailing part of our vacation on BVI. I had selected the rental based on its proximity to the beach and the high ratings for the owners and the unit. It did not disappoint because the unit was sparkling and the beach was a very short distance away, visible from the front door of the condo. The location was great because it was 17 minutes walk, or 3 minutes on the Dollar Bus that comes every 15 minutes, to shopping and dining. It was close to the ferry that we needed. The beach was very safe as we had to leave snorkel gear there unattended (although I don't recommend this, but we had no trouble). The owners were very helpful and patient. The place was spotless.
