One of my bucket list items was to go to St. Thomas and St. John and stay longer than the few hours you get when you are on a cruise ship. Luckily, I stumbled upon unit B-11 in Sapphire Beach Condominiums West. The unit was large and clean and incredibly well stocked with everything you might need to make your beach vacation the best. This unit is on the lower floor----a big plus----- and it is literally a 100 feet from the beach. You even have chair attendants when you get to the beach that monitor and care for the section of the beach in front of Sapphire and provide you with several varieties of lounge chairs. There is plenty of shade, sand, sun, and surf. If you want to snorkel there are reefs on the right and left hand side of the beach and I know some beach goers saw sea life in the sea grass right out in front of the condo .If you rent this unit, the owner will send you, via e-mail, the B-11 Bible, which is a compilation of all the things you need to know about the condo, the area you are in, and the whole of St. Thomas. I referred to this document a lot during our stay with great results. There were comments about restaurants, shopping, getting around, and the various attractions on the island. It was great to have a heads up about the island and all the things to do and possibly not to do while you in St. Thomas.
I would like to recommend to travelers, if you have the means, rent a Jeep. My husband and I really appreciated this vehicle with 4 wheel drive as the roads are steep in some places, but the "dollah bus" does stop on the road right outside the condo if you are unable to secure a car and it runs frequently.
Another great plus about this unit is it's proximity to Red Hook, which is the small village on the east end of the island where you can get the car ferry. or pedestrian ferry to St. John. The car ferry is $54.00 round trip and the beaches on St. John are pristine and well worth the price of the trip. There are also a lot of nice local restaurants and a Food Center grocery store in Red Hook that makes it easy to shop and eat without the hustle and bustle of Charlotte Amalie. I am recommending this condo to my family and friends who want to vacation in St. Thomas. It is much cheaper to rent a condo on a great beach than deal with the high cost of a resort.
Oh, I for got to mention the property has a very nice and very large salt water pool with lounge chairs in either the sun or shade. The owner sent us numerous pictures of the condo and grounds and pool before we arrived, but I was truly surprised by how nice it really is when you get there.
