Excellent location. Onsite pool and walking distance to beach. Close to restaurants,shopping and water transportation to St. John, St. Croix, Puerto Rico and British Virgin Islands. Pam (onsite manager for Thomas and Ann) is extremely friendly and helpful with directions and information on the island attractions and activities. Had a great time!
I really should have posted this review sooner. We really enjoyed our stay in Thomas and Ann's condo. It is very nicely furnished and the location is nearly perfect. The view of the marina from the balcony is beautiful. It was nice that the excursion we took to the BVI left from there. The walk to the beach was a little long but the beach was very nice and the snorkeling was great. It was also nice to be able to park just steps from the door. There was an issue with our neighbor, but the manager took care of it quickly.
The island is wonderful and I highly recommend a visit. Driving is a bit of a challenge, but you get used to it. There are some great restaurants (both pricey and reasonable) and rum is plentiful and cheap. The weather was almost perfect. I also highly recommend an excursion to the BVI (bring your passport). There is one golf course on St. Thomas and it was fun to play and not super expensive (play after 1:00). If you decide to go to St. Thomas, consider staying at Thomas and Ann's condo. You won't regret it.
Excellent accomodations with extremely attentive owners. They made sure all details including directions and recommended shopping locations. Beach is wonderful and you're close to the ferry to St John's. Highly recommend this condo if it's available.
Sapphire beach location is perfect, walk to beach, pools and even a bar/pizza restaurant in the complex.
View from the balcony was terrific, St John and neighboring islands as well as marina with boats going in an out, truly priceless view!
Condo filled with necessities in the kitchen, closets etc.
Snorkeling equipment, beach chairs as well as many kitchen staples provided.
Owners checked in to make sure all was well and again after we left to make sure we had a nice stay.
My husband and I were looking for a weeklong relaxing get away from the cold weather and work. The Sapphire Jewel was everything we wanted. The owners were hepful and responsive. We found it and got in easily. As soon as we opened the door, we were immediately taken with the view from the balcony. It was better than the pictures. We spent a lot of time on the balcony just soaking in the harbor, ocean and breezes. We never turned the ac on. The fans and breeze kept it very comfortable. The condo was clean, plenty of space, and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. Wifi worked easily. We only left the property twice. Once to grocery shop at the Food Center in Red Hook - a five minute taxi ride away. Good selection and prices weren't too bad for Island groceries. The second time we took the ferry over to St. John's and had lunch and did some shopping. It couldn't of been easier to do and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We spent time at both pools on the property and brought chairs down to the beach every night. People were friendly and if you wanted to do more, there was plenty to do. Very easy, enjoyable trip. Totally relaxing and lots of sun.
