ABOUT THE SAPPHIRE BEACH RESORT AND MARINA

There is only ONE property that is located right on Sapphire Beach beach/ocean front. It is Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina (SBRM). There are other properties nearby that are not right on the beach, such as Sapphire Village (On the hill with blue roofs) and older Crystal Cove. Make sure you know which property you are reviewing. SBRM it is not a 5 star 'Resort Hotel' with room service like the Ritz Carlton, it is more like a residential condominium property at an awesome location.

SBRM consists of 6 buildings (A-F), five of which (A-E) are on the beach. 'F' faces the marina. This duplex villa is in the 'A' building, on the beach. 'A' and 'D' buildings were fully renovated in 2013 featuring new woodwork, pergolas, entrance and balcony doors, balcony and entrance tails. Walls were re-sealed and newly painted.

EVERY unit at SBRM is a studio or 1 bedroom. The 1st level and 2nd level units are single level 'suites' (not true 1 BR), with the top 2 floors being 2-story 'villas' with almost twice the floor space as the suites. In the villas, the bedroom is upstairs with a bath, and the living room, kitchen, and bath down stairs. Some villas have 2 beds in the bedroom and/or a couch/futon in the living room, but all villa duplex units on top 2 floors are officially 1 bedroom like OURS.

Most of the units at SBRM are individually owned. The furnishings and conditions of the units can vary WIDELY. Some have been significantly upgraded while others are in basic 'rental' state. There is a hotel-type operation on the property that manages units for some owners. Those units are mostly basic and not upgraded.

This unit is a spacious, significantly remodeled, duplex villa where you can leave the wide sliding glass doors open and listen to the ocean all day/night long.

Sprint and AT&T consider the USVI to be just like the mainland, there are no roaming or long distance fees, whether calling locally or back to the mainland.

The town of Red Hook with lots of bars, restaurants and a grocery store is 1/2 mile away.

GUEST REVIEWS:

5 stars by Daniel, Date of stay 02/16/14
First things first, that view is unreal. There's two balconies that look straight onto the beach, and the view is breathtaking. The beach is pristine, the pool is great, the town is a short walk away. The place is renovated, modern, sleek, comfortable, with WiFi, nice shower, etc.. I love cooking and had a ball in the kitchen! Really top-notch. I'd go back in a heartbeat! Tip: There's a delicious BBQ place right at the entrance of the complex. :)
