Amazing location and view!
My husband and our son stayed for five nights. This was our third time staying at this condo. We love it. The bathroom and kitchen have both been updated and look wonderful! You walk right out the patio door to the beach. We always rent a car while staying so we can drive around at our leisure but a car is not necessary. Our favorite part of this particular stay was going into Red Hook and taking the ferry to Jost Van Dyke! Our son got to spend his 16th birthday on the island for the day. I would highly recommend staying at this condo while in St. Thomas. Very close to other beaches and restaurants.
Great location, great beach, great condo
We loved every minute in this lovely property. We highly recommend staying here. Mick and Jeannette are superb hosts and the covered porch is just perfect for morning breakfast and evening rum punch. The snorkeling here is the best we found on st Thomas. Another great thing about this condo is that it is close enough to the beach activities if you wish to partake and yet far enough away that none of the noise will be an issue. If you are going to st Thomas you cannot beat a stay here. Thank you Mick and Jeannette
Beautiful Sapphire Beach condo!
We had a terrific stay in A109. The unit is so cute and perfectly appointed! Everything you need is already here. We absolutely loved being just steps from the beautiful beach. The snorkeling here was great...we even saw squid right by the reef. Thank you Jeannette for an amazing stay. We will be back!!
Great Hosts and Property!
The condo is very clean and comfortable. The location in Building A is excellent. In my opinion, the beach in front of Buildings A and B is much better than the other buildings. The recent renovations look great also. Was beyond impressed with the customer service provided by Mick and Jeanette. Before I made the reservation, I asked them a lot of questions and they patiently answered all of them. They checked in with us on the day we arrived to make sure everything was ok. They also sent an e-mail on the day of our departure. They really want to make sure you have the best time possible. Our family really appreciated that! Thanks for being wonderful hosts!
Canadians enjoy St. Thomas!
The condo was exceptionally clean and comfortable. It's location right on the beach was wonderful, and we enjoyed the scuba equipment and beach chairs provided by this owner.
Amazing condo , amazing owners, amazing time!
What another amazing stay in A109 can't wait to come again.
Honeymoon spent on Sapphire Beach!!
We decided to visit St Thomas for our honeymoon, and after looking and looking we picked A109 and so glad we did. Mick and Jeanette were wonderful from the beginning and we even changed our dates a couple of times and they were so polite about that as well. The condo does come equipped with everything you need, we didn't have to bother them once.
Some pointers for future guest that may not know anything about the island like we didn't.
1. Have small bills, mainly $1 bills for the Safari, 1$ per person to Red Hook
2. When you look up that bill hill going back up the drive way to catch the safari, don't worry, walk across the dirt road by the cab stand, you will come to black top and take a left and bam! your at the safari stop, make sure you greet the locals when getting on "good morning, good afternoon, good evening" it goes a long way with them
3. Visit ST JOHN!!! take the ferry to St John and catch a cab from there to Trunk Bay. you will not be disappointed, read trip advisor about Trunk Bay a lot of great info
4. Go to Slice next door and get the brownie (lol)and if their catch of the day is Mahi Mahi get it!
5. Order a pizza from Senor Pizza, good and convenience
6. Prior guest have left a lot of toiletries, so don't worry if you think you might forget anything
7. OH HOW COULD I FORGET - the lights go out a lot, they say this is very common in St Thomas, no worries though they will be right back on!!
8. If you want a great burger and wings go to Tap N Still in Red Hook
9. Fatty's is great sports bar if you want to catch some while you're out there.
10. Throw away your watch, you are truly on island time, no one has a worry in the world
You really can't go wrong in St Thomas or this condo
8 Days in Paradise Christmas 2016
Just returned from 8 days in PARADISE…. What a Christmas vacation!! Having never been to St Thomas we did our research and found Mick and Jeanette’s condo. It truly was a great find and we could not have been happier with the newly remodeled condo. But better than that was their location on Sapphire Beach. There unit is in the first floor of the A building on the corner of the building, as everyone says in real estate it is all about location…. location… location and this one is perfect!
Both Mick and Jeanette were supper to work with in the rental process and made everything easy. These two are the perfect owners to work with.
As far as the condo their pictures say it all no need to elaborate. The location to the beach and the water also shown in the pictures is exactly accurate as depicted.
You are close to Red Hook maybe 1-1.5 miles. We did not rent a vehicle as I did not want to deal with driving on the oppose side of the road. This was not an issue as there is a taxi stand right on the property and A building is closest to it…. Rides to Red Hook were $4.00 per adult and the best thing is you are dropped at the front door of the restaurant, no looking for a parking place.
I could go on.. Get in touch with Mick and Jeanette and enjoy time in their island paradise!
First trip to USVI and our decision to stay at Jeannette and Mick's condo on Sapphire Beach did not disappoint! Everything was as described - mere steps to a gorgeous beach and beautiful, well appointed condo inside and out (especially with the kitchen remodel). Owners were easy to work with and provided all the information we were looking for in advance of our trip. Would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend to others.
Kevin & Debbie
Our stay at Jeannette & Micks was perfect. The condo is very clean and well taken care of. The island motif just lends itself to being in paradise. Having coffee on the patio and walking a few hundred feet to the water was ideal. The reservation confirmation letter they sent us before we arrived was so full of details about the condo and the area it answered our questions before we asked them. The cold six pack in the fridge and the coffee in the cupboard were a nice touch. We rented a car so the short ride to the town of Red Hook was no problem. Stay Left ! The town had everything we needed from groceries to bars and restaurants. Even an ice cream shop. We took the ferry to St Johns. The views and swimming were incredible and we enjoyed them but our favorite times were hanging out on the beach at Sapphire . The beach bar was fun . We cant wait to go back and will definitely stay @ Jeannette & Micks.
Jeanette & Mick's condo was everything we hoped it would be! The location is perfect, the condo was clean, updated and well taken care of, and the view was amazing! We especially liked being able to walk right off the patio onto the beach ! The condo has everything we needed or could want on vacation. Having coffee supplied for the week was a nice touch! Mick and Jeanette were a pleasure to work with. Everything we needed to know was very clearly explained to us. We did not rent a car and found this location perfect for easy access to Red Hook. We took the local Safari bus to Red Hook for $1pp and would cab home for $4pp. Red Hook had a grocery store and many bars and restaurants to please all different tastes. We loved Sapphire Beach leaving it only twice - once to St John and once to the British Virgin Islands. We would absolutely recommend anyone to stay here! Best location on Sapphire Beach.
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.
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
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. 🌴⛱🌞🍯🍹
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 snorkeling 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 socialize, 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 red hook aren't $2 like everyone yelled you. We went everyday 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 are 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 apologizing 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 .
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 is 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 remodeled 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 snorkeled every day, and visited our favorite restaurants in Red Hook. XO Bistro and Pecce 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 in 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. Snorkeling 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 snorkeling. 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!
The condo was beautiful. The bathroom remodel is awesome! The fact that we could walk out the sliding door and be right on the beach was wonderful. The owners are very gracious- checked to make sure we arrived safely. Would highly recommend this rental.My daughter and I were in St Thomas for a wedding. It was so nice to have Frantz pick us up at the airport and drop us off when we departed.
Great Place to stay.
My husband and I stayed here for a week. Mick and Jeannette were very helpful. The condo is very nice, and well equipped. Walking directly out to the beach was great. We have been to STT several times before, so we just went into Red Hook daily, Charlotte Amalie once and ST John twice. Actually got to meet Jeannette, which was a real treat. She came down the day we left. Very nice. They have a wonderful management Team. Brenda and Frantz picked us up at the airport and dropped us off when we left. They are both very nice, helpful, and great conversationalists. Had a very nice week.
Taylor and Debbie
Wonderful beach getaway
Enjoyed Mick and Jeanette wonderful condo for our 35th Anniversary. Condo extremely clean and location can not be surpassed. Beach view is beautiful and shade available under Seagrape trees. Enjoyed snorkeling everyday - seeing turtles, eagle rays, squid, and lots of tropical fish. Owners want your trip to be special and they really go the extra mile to make that happen. Very responsive to emails/phone. Special thanks also to MSP - for transportation to/from airport and our special anniversary dinner with Chef. Condo great for a couple or couple with small kids. Safari trucks - easy to use to get to Red Hook during the day - for $1.00 pp. Just catch at the top of the property by pointing down at the road and they will stop and pick you up. Enjoy a meal in town and then catch a taxi back for $5pp. Kitchen is nicely equipt with everything for meals in. Condo is located 1/2 mile from Red Hook and Ferry to St.Johns. We used Red Hook dive center for scuba diving - just 5 minutes from condo.
Thanks again for everything - hope to be able to return again.
Taylor and Debbie
Jeannette & Mick were outstanding to my (now) wife and I as we worked with them to plan our honeymoon. Any questions I had were answered right away - they know their stuff about the VI!
Brenda & Frantz picked us up at the airport and took us to the grocery store for our wedding present. (I would recommend checking a suitcase at the airport with as much dry foods as you can - it will be cheaper than getting groceries while there). It's an awesome team between Mick & Jeannette and Brenda & Frantz; Frantz is even considered the Bob Ross of the VI, really talented painter & teacher.
ANYWAYS, we got to the condo (right on Sapphire beach) and you can't believe the beauty. The water was perfect every day and only once was their an afternoon rain. Having met running track in college, my wife and I were able to run to Red Hook whenever we wanted dinner. It was a 6min run or 12min walk. Just watch for cars, stay to the side of the road and you'll be fine.
We saw several massive stingrays while snorkeling and really enjoyed getting in the water every day. The only time we looked at a clock during our stay was on the last day to verify the time Brenda & Frantz would be back to take us to the airport.
PLEASE do yourself a favor and avoid the headaches of staying at cheap and lame hotels / condos on the island. Jeannette & Mick go above and beyond their call of duty. It was a fantastic honeymoon, a trip we will remember forever and a destination (and condo) which we will certainly return to in the future!!
THANK YOU JEANETTE & MICK, and GO CATS (K-STATE)!!!!!!!
Perfect location, right on the beach. Amazing view. Very clean, cute condo with lots of personal touches to make it a home away from home. Owners are very helpful and responsive. We ate breakfasts on the patio looking out at the gorgeous water. We would move in if we could! We will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful trip. I would highly recommend this property. The owners were great to work with. Snorkeled every day and the best was on Sapphire beach
Our Amazing 1st Family Vacation
This was my first time back in 18 yrs and my wife's 2nd time and 3 1/2 yr old daughters 1st. Our vacation was amazing. Mic and Jeannete couldn't have made us feel any more welcome. The condo was phenomenal. You can't get any closer to the beach, if you could you'd be in the water. The amenities were terrific and we didn't need a thing. The property was clean and 24hr security made us feel safe. We ate breakfast in and had a couple dinners in as well. Red Hook is super close and a great place to spend an afternoon, and even into the night if your one of those late night people as there are plenty of bars and restaurants to visit. The other beautiful thing is that the St. John ferry is right in Red Hook and you could feasibly go from your door to cruz bay in 30 min or less. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking to stay on St. Thomas. Thank you again Mic & Jeannette for a wonderful relaxing vacation. Your hospitality made it a vacation we will never forget and look forward to getting back again next year.
We were met at airport by a Sapphire Beach rep who deals with Michael and Jeanette great tour of island on way to Sapphire Beach.we were Visiting our son who lives on St Thomas with his girlfriend.
Our stay was fun .the condo is well equipped but were disappointed in the pool closing and watersports area also closed. The staff however was most pleasant and could not have been more helpful.
The location is a awesome and beach wide and gorgeous..
Having we been here some 30 plus years ago did see some changes.....hopefully the association will return the resort to,it's prime.
That being said we loved the condo and location to red Hook for all great restaurants. Our son had a car so getting around not an issue. Public transportation is right there too.
We just got back from our 12 day vacation at this property. It was wonderful and I highly recommend it. Was great to walk out to the beach right from the condo. We snorkeled every day and sometimes three times a day. We went to three other beaches but this beach was the best for snorkeling. The best place to eat was at the top of the hill at the BBQ place and the painkiller drinks were the best. The Mango Tango's at the cabana were excellent. The owners were great to work with and the condo was excellent. Very clean and the keyless entry was wonderful. You did not have to worry about a key. We ate at Duffy's Love Shack for burgers and they were very good. Fish Tail's was good also. Island Time Pub was also good. I would stay here again the next time we come. LOVED IT!!!!!!!
Great spot to spend a week
We just got home from a week at Sapphire in this unit and it was a home run of a vacation. This unit is exactly as pictured on the owners page, sparkling clean, provides all the kitchen appliances and amenities you need to get started; coffee creamer, spices, mustard, ketchup, etc. They even left beer and water! There were lots of beach toys: for children (sand pails, shovels, boogie boards,) and adults (noodles, beach paddle, snorkels and masks). The bed was very comfortable, the free Wi-Fi worked fine 99% of the time, and the one time it failed to work, the owner responded quickly to walk us through the easy fix. The owners are terrific to deal with, very helpful, warm and friendly. Being an end unit, the patio is larger than the usual and gave us options to sit in sun/shade, breezy or still air. You can't beat that! As we did not rent a car, the ride to and from the airport was a real plus. Of course you need to provide a generous gratuity, but the drivers were so helpful and friendly, it was like driving around with a friend, rather than just another cab driver. The folks in the unit next to us were a little disappointed with their accommodations, and we recommended that they consider this condo next time they visit St. Thomas. Thanks to our hosts for a terrific week. We'll be back !
My husband and I were extremely pleased with our stay! Fantastic location with an unbelievable view!!! The owners included some very warm touches that really impressed us. With airport transfers, there was no hassle getting to and from. We breezed through our vacation.
A trip to remember
I want to say that I have been gonefor 24 hours and I want to be back there already. I want to go and never leave. In regards to the rental it is everything you could possibly ask for. The owners do a first class job in making you feel welcome and getting you set up. This rental has everything you could possible need. If you are looking for a place to stay look no further. And the ride back and forth to the airport was icing on the cake. Brenda and her husband were as nice as you could possibly be. When I go back to St. Thomas I am calling Mick and Jeannette. Thank you so much for being one of the best rental properties I have experienced. I will tell everyone about you. P. S. adventurers might want to take a ferry to St. john. the ferry is around the block and its a 7 dollar / 15 minute ride. St. John is a great place to spend the day. The beach in front of Mick and Jeannette's place is as good as it gets. Enjoy everyone ! I know my family did.
Clean. Comfortable. Relaxing.
Perfect Location - LOVED IT!
We absolutely loved this condo! Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. They even had cold beer and water in the refrigerator! Very refreshing while we unpacked. The condo had everything we needed, and having access to all the amenities was great. The snorkeling was awsome- saw lots of fish, turtles, barracudas and rays. The location was perfect for people watching, but was quiet enough for a good night's sleep. We loved being able to go back and forth to the beach in just a few steps. Having the ride to the airport was the perfect ending to the perfect vacation! I can't wait to go again! I can't thank Mick and Jeannette enough for all their help!
Perfect spot for vacation!
We spent 12 nights here in May and June and had a great time. The condo is just steps to the beach. The condo was just as pictured and had eveything you would need. The owners were available by phone and email.Everything was clean and working properly. We went to St John three times and visited different beaches with Maho being our favorite and check out the great deli in Mongoose Junction, also took the Breakaway day trip to the British Virgin Islands AMAZING !! leaves out of Sapphire marina right there on the property. Amazing trip to the islands and a great vacation. Thankyou!! Shelli
Absolutely Loved It!
We loved our stay at Mick & Jeannette's! The location was perfect - close to Red Hook (delicious restaurants and fun night life) and being on one of St. Thomas' best beaches was everything we were looking for and then some. It was perfect to pick up the makings for breakfast to eat at home in the mornings then enjoy food from the on-site restaurant for lunch. From Frantz picking us up at the airport up until the minute we left, we loved our stay here. Mick & Jeannette were very helpful with the coordination and planning of our trip as well. We have already recommended this condo to our friends who will be visiting St. Thomas later this year.
Condo was as described. Very clean and had everything you needed and then some!. Great service of being picked up at airport and delivered to the condo. GREAT GREAT GREAT location!!! Didnt want to leave and cant wait to go back!! Snorkeled right off the beach straight out infront of the condo everyday! Sapphire grill was delicious and very convient.
We just finished spending 13 nights at Jeanette & Mick's GREAT condo. Excellent location, close to everything, yet no one infringing on your privacy. The end unit offers more privacy then other units. Everything was spotless and all the amenities are provided, and more. Fantastic owners to deal with and their property Mangers equally helpful. We locked the safe without following instructions properly, our mistake. Frantz and Brenda arrived quickly to rectify. Brenda picked us up at the airport and returned us.The proximity to Red Hook makes it a great home base to visit other US & BVI. We visited 7. Utilizing ferries out of Red hook and Horizons II tours right next door at Sapphire Marina. We also flew to St Croix for a day drip. Excellent beaches everywhere and so much to do. Great restaurants in Redhook, Big Bamboo, Latitude 18 a little out of the way but well worth, go preferably Thurs, Friday & Sat live entertainment. Duffy's, Island time Pub and fish tails also good value, Wed Carnival night at Iggies, Bolong Bay. Spyglass on St John Cruz harbour, and Room with View Bluebeard's also great. Highly recommend renting here. Thanks again Jeanette & Mick
My wife and I and our two kids (16 & 19) stayed just after Christmas. This condo is in the perfect location. The beautiful beach and bay are literally right outside your front door. The views and the ocean breeze are to die for. The dive shop, pool, and beach side grill (they will wait on you on the beach) are all close by. Are the photo's accurate? No way! It's much better than that! You can't capture it with photos!
My wife and I stayed here 20 years ago in a unit back by the marina and while that was a wonderful trip, we dreamed of what it would be like to stay at such a beautiful place in a unit where you could walk right out onto the beach. Well, Mick and Jeanette's condo is just the place we dreamed of.
The condo is well-equipped, clean, and in good shape. The owners where very helpful and easy to work with and were generous in offering us an early checkin which really extented our stay. The condo was perfect for us. I would recommend it to anyone.
Sapphire bay is beautilful for snorkeling, swiming, sitting on the beach or by the pool. We took a day trip to St. John which is a must if you come here.
Great for quiet get away.
My husaband and I visited St Thomas in September 2012. The condo was clean and neat. It had all the appliances that we needed to keep our visit cost effective by eating in during the day. It was close to Red Hook and nice resturants for the evening. Security was visible and interactive the entire week we were there. Mick and Jeanette were available by phone before and during our stay and had a contact person on the island for any issues that came up. There resort is a bit secluded so if you like night life it is not the place for you; however, if you like quiet and nature, it is great. We had a great time "catching up with our souls" here. Snorkleing was great on sapphire bay. The pool is nice, but there is no bar or store anywhere in walking distance. You need to take your cell phone access to phone service is not available like in a hotel. Overall, it was a great experience. We would definitely stay there again. Mick and Jeanette were great hosts.
Right on Beach
Place was just as in the pics. It is right on the beach which is nice. The owners were in constant contact if you needed them. Very helpful. Great condo for the price and very close to Red Hook.
Wonderful stay in every way!!
Thank you Mick and Jeannette for condo #a109, it was truly like walking into a beautiful picture! Words cannot describe the beauty and we can see how you fell in love with these islands and condo as we did too.. My wife,two girls and I thought the condo to be immaculate and comfortable with everything in excellent working condition. Thanks again for both of you being so available to answer any questions we had before and during our trip, we really did make memories to last a lifetime!! We are already talking about returning to St. Thomas and looking forward to talking to the both of you again... With Great Thanks, JMH
I never grow tired looking at this amazing water!!
This was our fourth time staying at Sapphire Beach Resort and we loved A109!! The pictures are spot on and the description of the place very acurate!
Jeannette and Mick are great hosts to their "slice of paradise" and were very helpful in all the little things they did to make our vaca a great one!!
I would definately recommend their condo to my friends and family and I hope to be back next year!
The fun thing about staying in the A building is watching the cruise ship people and also being where the action is!!
Thank you Jeannette and Mick, it was a pleasure staying in your "slice of paradise" and I hope to visit again!!!

We loved our stay at the Sapphire beach resort. The place is in a great location and just steps away from great snorkeling/swimming and water sports. The place had everything you need to make food which we found to be very beneficial. The place is very clean and well kept. We would return again.
The best place to stay on the island!
A109 was perfect! Sapphire beach is the place to stay in St. Thomas. It is safe, the unit was clean and was perfect for our family of three. You are steps from the beach and really good snorkeling--you can see turtles, sting rays, and a variety of fish and coral. We rented a jeep and drove to other beaches on the island-- Sapphire couldnt be beat. It is easily the best place on St. Thomas. As for A109 -- we loved it. It was quiet and the folks at the rental shop beside the unit are friendly and always willing to help. The owners are wonderful to work with and called after we arrived just to check and make sure we had made it ok and had everything we needed! Defintely recommend Mick and Jeannette and A109!!!!
This was our first time getting a place to stay through VRBO, and we couldn't have been happier.
Jeannette and Mick had a concierge and take us to their condo. The location of this condo is fantastic, It's worth knowing which building your staying in when on Sapphire Beach Resort an this is in Building A, first floor on the corner, the back slidin glass opens to the sand and a short 30 step walk to the crystal clear waters of Sapphire Beach. The A building is closest to the Dive In shop and only one building away from Banana Cabana which has fantastic drinks and food (Try the Da Lime in Da Coconut!)
Jeannette and Mick's pride of ownership is obvious with the condition of the condo. The wood on the patio is newly treated, the bathroom has a motion sensor light that automatically comes on when you enter, and the condo is fully stocked with everything needed, coffee maker, micro, fridge, and don't forget the blender! The front door has a keyless entry which is perfect for those beach days and no lost key!
We ate breakfast and lunches in the condo or on the beach, then often went to Red Hook for dinner. You must try Coco Blue in Red Hook, I had the best steak there, it was so thick and cooked just right. There is a grocery store named Food Center just a little past Red Hood where we stocked up on essentials. It was fun, it made us feel like locals going to the store with everyone else
We spent many days snorkeling right off the beach and we saw more sea life right there than on an expensive snorkel trip we took. We saw Sea Turtles, sting rays, squid, trumpet fish, fan coral, and other fish that I don't know their name! Absolutely loved being able to snorkel right off the beach. Oh by the way, snorkel gear was included.
Jeannette and Mick, THANK YOU for providing such prompt, professional service and replies to all my questions!! We're so glad we chose to stay with you and yes we will be back !
