This is the GORGEOUS view right off our balcony.
Welcome to Sapphire Village, a quiet residential condo complex with resort amenities.
This gives you an idea about our condo. We remodeled it a few years ago and its beautiful.
Here is another shot, mostly of the living room, and that view from our balcony.
Living room, with newer La-Z-Boy furniture, including Queen sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress.
Dining/kitchen area
Kitchen is fully stocked and beautifully appointed with natural quartzite counters and SS appliances
More balcony view shots. That's Tortola in the distance.
This is looking down at the Marina/beach.

Lots of closets space and room for your luggage.
Remodeled vanity area with solid granite.
Remodeled tub/shower area with oiled bronze fixtures (and a mermaid girl)
Our closet is stocked with everything you need: chairs, coolers, floaties, hats, bags, umbrellas...
We also have a ton of snorkel gear. That will save you a LOT of money in rentals (or luggage space).
We have TWO pools. This is a view of the lower pool. Its ~40 steps from our unit.
Here is a view of the pool, taken from the edge of the poolside restaurant.
How close to the beach? Very close. Just a short walk to the marina and the beach is adjacent.
At the adjoining marina, you can book jet skis, parasail, fishing tours, sailing/power boat tours...
This is our location. Right next to tours. Short walk to beautiful beach and great snorkeling.
Slice VI is our poolside restaurant.
Here is the bar at Slice, where you can mingle with the friendly local residents.

A great breakfast option is the Beach Buzz, located at Sapphire Beach, just a short walk away.

Another shot of Sapphire -- I don't tire of the view!! Look, never a crowd.
Here is a yacht that decided to hang out at Sapphire. I took this picture by the pool.
Yet another shot of Sapphire. Have to keep showing it because its so gorgeous.
If you're lizard lovers, you're in for a treat. These guys (iguanas actually) hang by the marina.

One of the premier sites in the condo complex. Great view of the ocean and marina, plus the pool and bar just to the right, (corner unit on top floor). Very convenient with office and laundry in the same building. Remodel was really well done with classy high end features throughout. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and felt right at home the entire time. Could not find even a minor complaint or nit pick. Also appreciated the helpful hints from the owner on driving directions, restaurants, and things to do. Thanks Michelle!!!

“Amazing.....”

I surprised my wife with a trip to St. Thomas to celebrate our 15 year anniversary and chose this unit based on its location and pictures of the newly remodeled interior. Once we booked, Michelle (the owner) was EXTREEMLY responsive and easy to work with. She provides you with all the information that you could possibly need to prepare you for your stay.

Once we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised that the pictures exactly represented the unit. The only problem was that the pictures didn’t so the real thing justice. The views from the balcony are just spectacular…. Everything in the unit was great and exactly as described. Anything you could possibly need for a day at the beach was in the unit ready for to use.

We didn’t rent a car, took a taxi from the Airport (30-40 min ride) and then used the open air island dollar taxi to get back and forth from Red Hook (these are an adventure by themselves). Sapphire beach is incredible and we spent two full days there snorkeling and lounging on the beach. We did visit in the off season (Aug) but never felt crowded while we were at Sapphire. We took the opportunity to explore several other beaches on St. Thomas (highly recommend Secret Harbor for a nice quiet soak – make sure to try the spicy vodka at the bar) as well as taking the ferry over to St. John’s for a day. Each beach had great snorkeling and we were lucky to see all manner of tropical fish, rays, skates, sea turtles and reef squid (amazing).

Our 6 days went WAY to fast but was full of spectacular sights and sounds. I could go on and on about our trip, but I will close with this unit is a great rental in a great location - You can’t go wrong. We are already planning on our trip back as soon as possible (as soon as this year).

Michelle,
Sorry for the delay in the review, but again – thanks for ALL of your help making our trip absolutely amazing!

“Felt like home!”
Reviewed January 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2015

Beautiful condo with breathtaking views from the balcony. Interior was very cozy and really made you feel at home. Nice things to borrow - hats, snorkeling gear, books etc. Feel free to leave your own stuff behind for somebody else to use!
Everything was clean, well thought out, the condo had everything we needed - and then some. It felt like a lot of love was put into decorating and remodeling this condo.
Close to Sapphire grill, the pool, the BBQ truck, the bus stop and the beach.
Highly recommended!

Thank you for your review. And yes, a lot of love (and $$) has been put into our renovations. When we bought the place 5 years ago, it was the original 70's decor. Our goal was to make this a beautiful and modern tropical oasis for us and our guests. Our vision has been coming to life! I'm glad you enjoyed your visit and took the time to share this positive experience with others! Hope you'll come back.

“Great condo, great owner.”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The condo was exactly as described. Michelle provided some great tips and information about the east end where the condo is located. She was always very prompt in replying to our questions. We were only there a couple of days before our sailing trip but really enjoyed it. The condo was clean, well kept, and stocked with the basics. The pool was great and we found everything we needed in Red Hook which was a short $1 safari ride away. However, unless you want to take a very long ride on the safari loop around the east end, you need to take a taxi back to the condo. Don't miss Off The Grid BBQ for lunch right at the entrance of Sapphire Village. Great BBQ!

This was my first trip to the Virgin Islands and it couldn't have been better. This condo was beautifully remodeled, all the details are perfect. And that VIEW! Good gracious. Hard to beat. Amazing to see the ocean every morning, and we liked seeing the boats in the marina too. I really appreciated how hospitable Michele was. She wrote out a great list prior to our arrival of recommendations for beaches, food, activities. It was extremely helpful for first timers! The condo was so comfortable and convenient. Great location, with an easy walk to Sapphire Beach and a quick cab ride to several other great beaches on the East End. Michele was very responsive to emails/texts too. The condo is well stocked with beach gear and kitchen essentials. My boyfriend and I feel so lucky to have had the chance to stay here, and we can't wait to return! Thank you!!

Lee -I'm so glad you had a great time. THanks for mentioning the list of recommendations I provide. I do this for everyong, understanding that most people probably don't know what to do, and I'm glad you found it useful. I try to provide my guests with everything I would want to have, from stocking the condo well, to giving insights and advice. I'm so glad it hit the mark with you. And please do come back next year for longer!!

Although the condo is not large it was totally equipped with everything you would need; very neat and clean. It was very comfortable, good internet connection, and homey. It was extremely quiet, just what we wanted, and the view was spectacular. If we go to St Thomas again we will definitely stay there. It was easy to take the Safari into Red Hook and then taxi back, which is about a mile. If you stay, don't miss the BBQ truck at the entrance, 'Off the Grid.' You need to get there by 2:00pm to get the the food you want. We liked the Fish Trap restaurant best. Thank you Michelle for answering all of our questions!
