You can rent a car directly from the airport. I can give you a name of someone who does Airport Transportation. A lot of my guests use Him. Taxis are readily available at the airport and throughout the Island. You can be adventurous and use the local transportation The Safari I

Owner Supplied Testimonials

My family and I truly enjoyed staying in this condo. It had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable..and the VIEWS from both balconies....AMAZING! This stay truly felt like a vacation with everything that was provided! The reference list and discounts to supplies of all sorts, made the stay flawless! We loved the convenience of this location to everything too. We had accessibility to snorkeling, paddle boats, jet skis, parasailing, the pool, etc within steps. The Banana Cabana, downstairs was very convenient and offered good burgers! Sapphire Marina was also within steps for all types of excursions. Our favorite little spot became the Sapphire Bar and Grill. It reminded us of the Cheers tv show, where everybody knows your name. lol Great friendly service, great stories, and awesome wings and chicken strips! The marina manager also gave my kids the a tip about how to call the fish to you when snorkeling---dog biscuits...and it works!! hahaha Also the proximity to the American Yacht Harbor was great. Here we found other restaurants, shopping, coffee etc! We couldn't have been happier staying here! I wish we could have stayed longer! There was so much to see and do and time just went by too fast! Thank you Lise for sharing your villa in paradise!

We have made staying here a tradition. We can go straight to vacation mode. it has everything you need, with great places to go for dinner just a short drive away! We plan on going same time next year! Thanks for sharing your Villa in Paradise! Definitely a great place to get away, only problem is you don't want to go back home.

Lise's condo, and Sapphire Beach were the best possible blend for our AWESOME vacation. The unit itself is perfectly laid out - wonderful to have separate sleeping area upstairs and living area down stairs for our family of my husband, our 12-year-old son, and me. We had everything we needed (coolers, beach chairs, a blender, dishes, coffee pot - and even a lot of extras like salt and pepper, straws, paper towels, etc.). We were there a week, of this time we spent two days on the beach at Sapphire, we did eat from the beach lunch place on property, which was very good! The snorkeling is great here and there is swimming, and a nice bonus that she keeps the gear on the deck for you. Two huge advantages for us, one was the proximity to the Sapphire Beach Marina - we are boating enthusiasts, so we were able to walk the marina every evening after dinner and this was a great way to wind down and always something new to see or talk about. The second advantage was proximity to Red Hook - we did rent a Jeep at the airport (although cabs are readily available here), we were glad we did for the freedom - we were able to zip down to the Food Center for groceries, and down to Red Hook to eat dinner and lunch (notable restaurants -Molly Malones for all meals, Fish Tails for a nicer dinner - very good sushi and mahi, Island Time Pizza for a great view and happy hour, and Duffy's for the ambiance). We did a day trip over to St John, took the Jeep on the car ferry - super fun adventure, and we did a couple of day boat trips with the Horizon/Breakaway crew. We lucked out and the boats were not overly crowded on the days we went - we would highly recommend the Baths at Virgin Gorda if you have never been, and Jost Van Dyke was our favorite spot. We used the coupon in the drawer for the Virgin Gorda trip - saved a pretty penny, thank you Lise! She responds quickly to questions and while we were there one night there was a storm that knocked out the power causing the upstairs A/C to blink out - I emailed Lise early in the morning - she was back to me with a solution by 10am. Overall, our trip was PERFECT. We did not feel unsafe at Sapphire, not once, despite some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. Were there some ducks in the pool, yes. Other than that - I cannot think of one single negative thing to say about Sapphire Beach Resort, and certainly Lise's unit was top notch. We will be back - thank you Lise for sharing with us!

I have to admit, I'm always a little reluctant to rent from someone who I haven't dealt with before, but Lise was so helpful and her condo is wonderful! I surprised my husband and kids with a trip to St. Thomas for our 20th anniversary. The condo is absolutely beautiful! The views from both decks is amazing! The crystal clear water views and beach views are the best. You need nothing when you get here but your groceries and your bathing suit! Snorkling gear/floaties, beach chairs are all provided. The condo itself is beautiful and very well appointed with all the modern conveniences. The beds are extremely comfortable -- even the pull-out couches are comfortable! Snorkling is excellent right out the door at Sapphire beach. So many exotic fish were seen by us -- even stingrays and turtles! Red hook is literally a 3-min drive down the road to the left. There you'll find a ton of restaurants/bars, shops, and 2 grocery stores. So convenient!!! I truly can't express how accessible Lise was throughout the whole process. She answered e-mails within an hour usually and never left me hanging wondering what was going on. I will definitely be back to this lovely condo -- hopefully soon!! Thank you, Lise, for making this such a memorable trip for all of us!!!

when can we come back? I traveled with my wife and had an amazing vacation. Sapphire Beach had great white sand with crysta clear blue water. The pool is on a peninsula that also gives great views of the water and shark island. Red Hook is only a short drive away and offers lots of places to eat, drink, and shop. We look forward to coming back as soon as we can. Thank you Lise for all of the help.

We spent 10 amazing days at Lise's condo. This was our second time back. It just keeps getting better. The condo fully remodeled with High end upgrades and is beautifully appointed. The kitchen has a gorgeous new quartz countertop with everything you need . Lise is always adding new touches to keep the condo updated and welcoming. There is everything you need, weber electric grill, snorkeling gear, beach chairs and coolers to take two other beaches, even plastic storage bags to take your lunch with you. She has thought of everything. I highly recommend this condo you will not be disappointed. I'm already looking to book our next vacation! Again Lise thank you very much for a wonderful vacation!!!

Without question my husband and I recommend THIS villa for your stay on St. Thomas! We wanted a special place for our 30th anniversary. Something ON the beach, with views, sea breezes, comfortable accommodations, everything the listing said would be there. HOLY COW were we blown away! The villa itself is beautiful! Charming! The bed was the most comfortable of any bed we've had at someone else's home and almost any hotel. Gorgeous appointments, full kitchen. We felt at home, and very welcome by the owners. There were flippers, snorkeling stuff, for our use. Just great. The view from the two balconies is unsurpassed. And, get this: you can see the sun rise AND the sun set from the top balcony, where the master bedroom is. Breathtaking! Each day, after a morning on the beach, we would hop on a Safari open-air taxi that stopped often at the top of the hill. Cost us a dollar each to get into Red Hook where we could shop, buy groceries, or eat out at one of several restaurants. We highly recommend Pesce where we had our anniversary dinner. Wonderful food, lovely presentation, great staff, and most reasonable for the cuisine! We also recommend Off the Grid that is a food truck located at the entrance to Sapphire. Superb BBQ, coleslaw, steamed vegetables! A MUST! Twice we took the ferry from Red Hook over to St. John (15 minutes, $14 each). We shopped, ate lunch, walked the town. SO easy to do! Do you need a car? We didn't. We took a taxi from the airport for $15 each. Dropped us off at the front door. We checked in, got beach towels from the desk, and were off and running. To return to the airport, or to go anywhere, really, there was always a taxi-van waiting near the resort office. The island has a standard fare, four or six dollars, depending on where you are going, or $15 for longer runs, such as to the airport. Yacht Nightwind. DO THIS! The Nightwind is a gorgeous sailing boat that 'lives' right there at the Sapphire Beach Marina. Captain Rick and first mate Debbie are funny, skilled, generous, and knowledgeable. We spent the day, with six other great folks, sailing the islands. We swam with turtles, snorkeled, drank great rum punch, and had wonderful meals and dessert. BOOK IT. Finally, we can't say enough about our hosts. Before traveling we emailed and one time spoke by phone. These are real people with an incredible villa that is, out of 78 condos, in THE BEST spot of the whole resort. Thank you, Lise! SEE YOU NEXT YEAR - and many years after!
