Description of the Sapphire Beach vacation condo rental
Why does B~11 get all those great reviews?

It's not because it's the closest unit to the beach-although it's just a short and pleasant stroll.

It's not because it has the best view. The view is not at all bad, but it's not anything special. You can see it in one of the photos in this listing.

It's not because it is the most fully renovated. We are working on it, but we need a few more years.

It's not because the rates are the lowest-although they are close to the very lowest.

And as hard as we try to be the best hosts, there are many others that are just as good, and probably a few that are better!

So here is our secret formula.

First we try to offer the best value in the area. We know that there are more desirable units, and there are less expensive units. We strive to approach the quality of the very best units while remaining priced only slightly higher than the least expensive.

Then, we strive to describe both the condominium and our unit as accurately as we can. We do not promise what we cannot provide. If there are surprises for our guests, we want them to be good ones.

We do not try to provide a "hotel experience". When our guests arrive at B~11, we want them to feel that they have arrived at their own vacation home.

We try to make B~11 as comfortable and convenient as we can. This includes providing almost everything that we reasonably can, so our guests need to schlepp as little as possible.

We do what we reasonably can to furnish our guests the best vacation that we are able to. Problems inevitably arise, but when they do we try to get them resolved as soon as possible. We do not follow the "Golden Rule"; we try to treat our guests better than we would want to be treated.

And, finally, a few days after our guests (not including friends and family) leave B~11, we email them and ask them to leave a review.

We hope that you will join the many happy guests who have shared B~11 with us and leave another glowing review.

PLEASE READ: Scammers abound. Before sending any money to reserve this unit confirm the authenticity by phoning me AT THE PHONE NUMBER ON THIS LISTING PAGE.
Area Information
This condominium has been owned by our family which has been enjoying the magic of Sapphire for over fifty years. It was largely renovated and offered for rental for the first time in late 2007. The condo is located just minutes from Red Hook where you can find groceries, restaurants, shopping and access to the ferries which can whisk you away to St. John or the British Virgin Islands.

The condo is only one hundred and fifty steps from the front door to the beach. While on the beach you can see St John and the British Virgin Islands. Because the unit is on the lower level, when you arrive you park at the rear of the unit and bring your luggage and groceries into the unit by walking about thirty-five feet from your car and up just four steps, rather than lugging them around to the front of the building and up a flight of stairs

The unit retains the original floor plan, except that the original front porch has been enclosed and now expands the already large living/dining room, and a large fenestration has been cut between the kitchen and living/dining area.

The unit contains its own front-loading washer and matching dryer. For drying wet towels and such, there is a solar powered 'clothesline' just outside the rear door. There are two televisions, and 'expanded digital cable' (a total of approximately teventy channels) and Showtime are included. Local phone service and Wi-Fi internet access are included.

There is a 52 inch TV in front and and a '32 inch class' in the bedroom two DVD players (one Blu-Ray), and and two stereo systems.

The locks have been removed from all closet doors, except for one-half of one closet.. We do our best to keep 'starter supplies' of non-perishable essentials in the unit, so you won't have to begin your stay buying things like coffee filters and dish detergent.

Please note: Because we keep improving B~11 faster then we can take new photographs, most of the photographs are somewhat obsolete. The only change that may be the slightest bit controversial is that we have removed the dining table by the front window which served primarily as a workbench for Steve when we were in B~11-the round dining table accommodates five without any problems.. This enabled us to move futon-like couch from the bedroom to under the front window. There were two reasons for this. First, it will sometime allow more rational sleeping arrangements when there are five occupants. Secondly, It frees up space in the bedroom which Steve will use to construct a "storage wall unit" which will also have space for a larger television. I am sure that you will agree that all other changes that we have made are a functional and/or aesthetic improvement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What makes your vacation rental special?
A: We try to supply almost everything that we reasonably can. You should only have to bring some clothing, a couple of swimsuits, toiletries, any medications that you require, and personal items. (Unless you are bringing food) if you have to check any baggage, you have brought too much.
