Perfect Condo In Paradise
Great experience renting this condo. Very clean and well kept, pictures are exactly as shown. Jeannette & Mick were wonderful to work with. A+ for communications. We have stayed in several condo's at Sapphire Beach and all were good. We are ocean people so this location close to the beach was perfect for us. We never made it to the pool, we can swim in a pool at home but we can't swim in the ocean at home. End unit is nice for extra patio space. The unit manager lives in the next building and was wonderful to work with. Beautiful views and a lot of memories made here. Red Hook was close with a lot of eating choices. Great variety. Make sure you have insect spray, the "no see ums" loved to bite me and they never touched my husband. Our yearly trip to Paradise was amazing, Thank you Jeannette & Mick.
We cannot say enough about this property...Very well maintained and decorated, thoughtfully stocked with everything from kitchen items & spices to shampoo & beach gear. Honestly, all you need is your bathing suit & toothbrush! More importantly, Jeannette & Mick are "Angels". After injuring my foot in St John on day 2 of our 10 day vacation....., we either were going home or making one last effort to relocate to a property that was conducive to walking with crutches...Lucky for us, we hit the jackpot when we connected with them! Not only was their property perfect, they went out of their way to offer assistance with medical care & supplies, an amazing Taxi service that enabled us to get around town in spite of my injury, and daily emails checking on us to see if all was well! We will be forever grateful for their kindness and compassion. Dawn & Gerry Livonia, MI

Beautiful Week as Usual
We stayed with Mick and Jeannette from June 14 to 21. This was our sixth stay at Sapphire Beach and was one of the best. Mick and Jeannette are great to work with. They communicate well and respond quickly to any question. This was a truly hassle free visit. The apartment is well appointed and the snorkeling and beach supplies are especially welcome. We always rent a car, so going out to eat is no problem. We often at lunch on the patio though, just to continue to enjoy the beach. We will definitely stay with Mick and Jeannette again.
Nice condo on the beach
This was our first trip to Sapphire Beach and we enjoyed our time there. This condo is on the first floor and only about 100 feet from the water. Near the water is a line of trees that provide shade. So you have the option of sun or shade. The coral is only a few feet away, so if you like to snorkel, you will get to see plenty of colorful fish and coral. The resort itself is very quiet and they have a marina that offers many boating excursions. Red Hook is nearby and is only a $4 tax ride away. It provides many restaurants, another marina and a ferry that will take you to St. John. The condo itself is very well kept with a beautiful, what looks like a newly remodeled bathroom. The bed is very comfortable and the deck is great during the day or evening. If you are looking for a nice condo, quiet area, great beach and snorkeling, then this is the place for you.
Great warm getaway
WE have been going to Sapphire Beach for the past six years so you can tell we love it. Two years ago we found your rental and we call it our home away from home. Great condo, close to the water and right on the beach which we really enjoy. Beach is not crowded and most everyone is friendly.
Absolutely love this place! Great location, amazing views! Extremely well kept, wonderfully stocked. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Location, Beautiful Views!
We were looking for a place to relax and definitely hit the jackpot! We could wake up each morning with a wonderful view of the white sand and blue waters. The condo had everything we needed, including snorkelling equipment. It was close to Red Hook, where we went to get groceries and we did catch the ferry to St John one day. But mostly we just soaked up the sun right out in front of the condo. Jeanette was great to work with and answered all my questions within minutes. Would love to return some day. This was our first visit to St Thomas and it was everything we had hoped for and more.

Perfect vacation spot!
I can't say enough about this beautiful spot. My husband and I spent a quiet week away and everything was perfect! The condo is exactly as described, clean, modern, and well stocked. Mick and Jeannette were very quick to respond to any and all questions when we were first considering renting and checked in with us when we arrived and before we departed. The beach is amazing!!! We had it almost to ourselves every day. Even with a cruise ship in town there were only a few extra people and they were gone by afternoon. The snorkeling, just yards from the condo, was some of the best we've seen and the water is indescribable. If you stay at Saphire Beach you shouldn't consider any other unit. The location, patio, and view were perfect. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your paradise. I hope we can return some day.
Great location, pretty beach
Beautiful beach. Clean and well kept condo. Very close to Red Hook so the ferry is nearby and there are plenty of places to eat. The owners provide snorkel gear for you to use. There's a coral reef not even 40 yards from your back door. Take the ferry to St John and go to Trunk Bay, it's worth it. If you like to drink and socialise, Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke is the place to go, especially during the offseason. The only knocks I have- the condo complex has been involved in litigation and everything is shut down there. I was told that it just got resolved and they were renovating the pool bar and the cafe near the scuba and snorkel rental place, but don't be surprised if it takes a while. The truck taxis into the red hook aren't $2 like everyone yelled you. We went every day and used a different person every time, it's $4 a person. Not a big deal at all, just good to know if you're carrying $1's around for that.- none of these is in the control of the condo owners. The only knock I have against the owners is the first morning we were there I emailed them to tell them that their blinds facing the beach were broken and do not roll back up. She immediately responded apologising saying that they would send their property manager over to fix it. We stayed 5 days and never heard another word from them until the day we left, nor was the problem fixed. We paid extra for a bottom floor with that view and we didn't get the view. Outside of that, it was a very pleasant trip.

BEST VACATION IN YEARS! We LOVED Sapphire!
This trip was very special to us. I celebrated my 33rd birthday and my boyfriend celebrated the BIG 4-0! It was nice to have a chance to relax and enjoy each other. This condo came highly recommended by a friend of ours who stayed here last year. She showed me pictures of the unit, but words can not express how amazing it was to see in person. Mick & Jeannette are fabulous hosts and they went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. The frig had a 6 pack of beer when we arrived! Ahhh....sitting on the porch with my honey staring out at that view with a beer in hand was a perfect way to begin our trip. Our first night we read the guest book which gave us a lot of great ideas on what to do while we were there. I have to say that renting a car was a smart idea. Driving was definitely an adventure! Lol We ate at the Sunset Grill, Mafolie's, and Pesce's. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. We checked out the Mountain Top, Coral Bay, Bolongo Bay (we rode the giant bicycle on the water), and St. John. The banana cabana had great sandwiches and yummy frozen drinks. My boyfriend and I met a lot of great people and we can't wait to go back. We loved the brand new bathroom. Everything in the condo was so clean and the decor was really cute. Great job Mick & Jeannette! We will be referring many people to you!
Excellent! Not a single thing I would change!
Stayed at this property for 6 nights and found it to be stocked with everything one could possibly need to enjoy the condo as well as the beach. The owners thought of EVERYTHING, checked in with us via phone when we arrived at the condo and during any and all communication were super friendly and helpful! The condo was very clean and the location was absolutely perfect! We enjoyed their patio ON the beach quite a few nights and the whole family was super happy with the condo and it's amenities.
Just wanted to thank you for letting my wife & I stay at your Little Slice of Paradise . We had a great time. Your condo has the best view on the beach. Other renters remarked how lucky we were to say in A-109. thank you again, Jeannette and Mick, the condo is beautiful . Alex& Michelle
Best location on St Thomas and best unit at the Sapphire!
For us, this was the best place for us to stay on St Thomas during our trip, and was the best unit at the Sapphire! We were there during February school vacation week, and while the island was probably very busy and crowded, we never felt that way here. Everyone writes "words cannot describe the view..." and now I know why. It's true! Every morning all we had to do was slide open our curtains and we had the most beautiful view every second, while packing for the day, during meals, during games, for whatever! Having the most spectacular part of the beach just steps away was perfect. The kids were always busy - they could snorkel, walk the beach, play on the wide open sand, and my husband and I could join them or not. We could sit on the large patio, never having to rush to get a certain spot on the beach, shade or not. It was the most relaxed place we have ever stayed. The unit was stocked with everything we needed and help was just a call or text away if we ever needed anything. The condo is so spacious and comfortable. We had 4 staying and sleeping there for 8 nights without any problems. The bathroom and shower are also spacious! Red Hook was so close and there are SO many places to eat even without going into Charlotte Amalie. Of course, a day trip to St John is a must, no matter where you stay! Thank you for a great trip! I truly hope our travels bring us back to St Thomas again, in which case we would definitely love to stay in your condo again!!
Most relaxing spot to vacation.
We just returned from our second year in Mick and Jeannette's condo at Sapphire Beach and it was all we had been looking forward to in the year since we first stayed in their unit. The condo is pristine, every nook and cranny clean and shiny. A newly remodelled bathroom is really lovely, double sinks, large shower and tile floor. The owners are very easy to work with, and even checked in with us after a couple of days, just to make sure we were doing ok and having fun! We enjoyed hours of sitting on the covered patio reading, relaxing and enjoying not having to make the mad dash for cover whenever the odd shower would hit. The covered patio is a real plus that units on the second and third floors don't have. We swam and snorkelled every day, and visited our favourite restaurants in Red Hook. XO Bistro and Peace are both worth a visit. Being able to make a quick breakfast and lunch in the well-appointed kitchen area was great, and we also made dinner for several nights. A chill-axing way to end a lazy day. Riding to and from the condo on our travel days with Franz was a treat. He is a charming guy, and a delight to talk with. We haven't met Brenda yet, but hope to next time...and there will be a next time! Thanks, Mick and Jeannette for sharing your slice of paradise with us.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat. The property is as described and the pictures are genuine. You are on the best end of the beach and having a corner unit gives you a more open feeling than you would otherwise have with other units. We had breakfast on the patio every morning. Everything you need to make you feel at home is included. I must compliment the cleaning service as the condo was spotless. We did not have any trouble with anything. Unpacked and went to the beach. The owners could not have been more attentive. You will receive a welcome packet with island information to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Jeannette contacted us via text when we arrived to welcome us and make sure everything was acceptable and then again when we were departing. Snorkelling was great, I went every day anywhere I could. The staff on the grounds were very pleasant. We did see security several times which eases the mind. We took a boat excursion to the BVI which was fantastic. the marina is right next door and I can't tell how valuable that is. You only need to walk over there to go on your excursions. I suggest taking the ferry to St. John and spend the day there. It's beautiful.I didn't think lunch/dinner pricing was too high especially if you keep in mind you are on an island. We did not rent a car and didn't need one. Getting around on the Safari Bus for $1 or $2 is the way to go. If needed the cabs are not that expensive $6 per person. Try finding that in Chicago. We had a wonderful time and will certainly be back. First floor, beachfront, well equipped and tastefully decorated, you will not find a better-located condo in the resort. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us.
What more could you ask for?
Our biggest problem was sand in our beds....that's how close you are to the beach. Wake up, walk out and have your morning beverage overlooking the beautiful turquoise ocean. The snorkeling right off the beach was amazing...I came VERY close to a 3 1/2 foot barracuda, amazing tropical fish and rays---never needed to leave to get our snorkeling fix. The condo had all the comforts of home and the contact numbers and support people in place never left you hanging. We needed a vacation that involved lots of rest and down time- we have never had a vacation so rejuvenating. Moonlight massages, walks on the beach, Sunday afternoon Bocce with the "regulars", friendly neighbors and wait staff. The view was spectacular and like no where else in the world- so so pretty and relaxing. Great BBQ cart on site with ribs, chicken, pulled pork, small sandwich/drink/breakfast stand too. Redhook is really close and offers tons of dining options- but the lack of sidewalks/hills/crazy driving makes walking near impossible- need to rely on cabs/driver/shuttle or safari.
Heaven on the beach.
My fiancee and I rented Jeannette and Mick's condo for almost 10 days and we absolutely loved it. The location couldn't have been more perfect as Sapphire Beach seems to be the best beach for snorkelling. We just walked out on the patio and there was the beach...can't get any closer than that! Jeannette checked with us upon arrival to make sure we were safe and that we had everything we needed. She genuinely cares and wants to make sure the experience is nothing short of amazing. The condo was very clean, the kitchen well equipped and the bathroom was beautiful. When Jeannette found out we got engaged on St. John, her and Mick sent us a nice bottle of champagne to the condo, it was so thoughtful. We definitely recommend this little "slice of paradise" to anyone out there and we hope to come back there soon for our honeymoon. Thank you, Mick & Jeannette, for making this an unforgettable vacation!
