We could not have picked a better place to visit.The condo was wonderful and had everything we needed and more! It was nice having the grill,we used it 3 times in 10 days. We love St. Thomas anyway,but Sapphire beach is perfect.Diane,the beach attendant was over the top,really enjoyed her. The Kilpatricks have really added everything one would need on the beach,the extra large beach towels were the bomb my granddaughter said..lol..we celebrated her 18th birthday at Duffy's love shack,Antonia was so helpful and a lovely person! Thank you so much for allowing us to spend 10 of the most glorious days at your " home away form home".... sincerely, Melinda Haar
Response from the owner We are so happy you enjoyed everything. We try hard to make our unit special.
“Perfect Stay at Sapphire Bay”
We just returned from the most fabulous week in St Thomas at the Sapphire Beach condo. The condo location could not be more perfect. Just steps to the beach with the most serine views of the island. It is a quick 2 min drive to Red Hook harbor for great restaurants, bars, grocery store and ferry to BVI or St John. The owners were so accommodating bringing in a full size crib, high chair and pack and play for my 1 YO. The house keeper Norma gave us a complete run down of the area, where to eat and what to do during our stay. Being a family with 2 kids, this was the perfect stay for us. Full kitchen in the unit, washer and dryer, satellite TV, games and movies for the kids--and the convenience of going back and forth between the beach and home when needed. The island was nothing but beautiful and after visiting many beaches on the island, this was by far the best. If you don’t snorkel, you will start on this trip. The water is so calm and clear with amazing fish, turtles and coral. Plus gear is provided at the condo! A trip to the Mountain Top for a banana daiquiri is a must. For dinner, Fish Tails had the freshest seafood and best sushi around. For Caribbean fare, don’t skip Cuzzin's and Glady's in Charlotte Amalie-- absolutely delicious! We cannot wait to return to paradise-- maybe next time without the kiddos!
Let me first start off by saying what an outstanding time we had during our week long stay at Crystal Cove condo B5. Kerry, Kevin, and Kim made us feel welcome and at ease from the moment we first corresponded with them. They are extremely prompt and informative with answers to any questions you may have. The condo is very spacious and includes all the amenities your would want or ever need! The condo and the grounds are very clean and very well maintained. In the morning you can sit on the porch with your coffee and enjoy the sunshine and steady ocean breeze inviting you to the beach! The location of the condo was a huge plus for us also. The town of Red Hook is minutes away and offers excellent night life, restaurants, charter boats, ferry to St Johns etc. Sapphire Bay Marina is a two minute walk from the condo where you can hire a boat to go deep sea fishing or go for a day sail/snorkel trip. Not to mention Crystal Cove is located on Sapphire Beach, which we found to be one of the best beaches on St Thomas. Excellent coral for snorkeling, beautiful turquoise blue water, and perfect sand! As I mentioned before, the Kilpatrick's provided excellent customer service! They provide all the information you need regarding getting to the property, getting in and settled, and ensuring you have a worry free vacation. This trip was to celebrate our 10th anniversary and I can easily say after spending lots of time in Hawaii, Mexico, and various cruises, this was by far our favorite vacation we have been on! The Kilpatrick's are outstanding hosts, the condo is perfect, the beach is outstanding! We will be back!
“A Definite Five Star +++ Condo in Paradise”
Imagine arriving on Christmas day and finding both TVs playing Christmas music. Yup, that's what greeted my daughter and me on 12/25/13. Talk about your nice touches!!! That was just one of hundreds of outstanding amenities that Kerry & Kevin were thoughtful enough to incorporate into our outstanding holiday adventure. We wanted for nothing and the two bathrooms made it wonderful for two adult females to have their own space. I loved the Murphy beds and felt they were a fantastic use of space. Only needed one and it was super comfortable. Never saw a bug day or night. Several iguanas roamed the property and provided lots of entertainment for the curious. Other reviewers have mentioned the cleanliness of the Kilpatrick's unit but I've gotta tell you there was not a grain of sand on the floor nor a speck of dust on any surface. A new sponge in the sink, new bars of soap in the bathrooms, plenty of paper goods and a most appreciated rum & coke awaiting our consumption...these are some of the small gestures that were so appreciated. We did very little cooking and ate out every night with the exception of one night when we ordered pizza from Senor Pizza and it was quickly delivered hot and right to our front door. Restaurants in Red Hook were okay but nothing to rave about. Jewelry shopping in Charlotte amalie was quite the experience. Great deals if you're good at bargaining! We heard about other beaches and felt obligated to check them out. Too crowded, no coral reefs to snorkel and lacking in the personality of our beach. I would suggest that guests consider having Norma stock up on some of the basic items prior to arrival; i.e. bread, milk, coffee, rum, rum, rum. If it weren't for the fact that my daughter and I choose a different location each year to spend the holidays, we would return to B5 in a heartbeat. Kerry & Kevin - I found it!! The one missing utensil ..a "champagne star" for your New Year's Eve guests. Happy New Year everyone.
“Excellent place to spend your vacation”
I stayed here for one week with my parents. I chose this condo because it was very reasonably priced, had great amenities, and direct access to an excellent beach. My parents are older so I wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to get to the beach. I am so glad I booked here! From the minute I emailed the owners, the Kilpatrick family was incredibly responsive, helpful, and kind. They patiently answered all of my questions (I had a lot of them!) and worked with me to make this vacation special. The condo has everything one needs. We cooked all of our meals for an entire week. The one time we ate out was when we went on an excursion. Otherwise, this place had it all. The location is also great because we were able to walk to the Sapphire Beach Marina, and it was also on the safari bus route, which we ended up riding everywhere. I highly recommend this place for any kind of traveler. You will not be disappointed.
“Return Visit - Just as great as the first time”
Just a quick note to say that we enjoyed this condo and its excellent location as much as we did on our first visit last February. This time my sister and I brought her children (early 20's) and my nephew's girlfriend. They loved the place, too. You can't beat just a few steps to a gorgeous beach. We also were delighted that my nephew proposed to his girlfriend on this beautiful beach and she accepted! If you want more details, see our February 2012 review. You will be pleased if you rent this condo.
“A Vacation in Paradise”
We stayed a week at this condo and it was amazing. Very home-like feeling and relaxing. We were left a gift (rum and coke) for our arrival and the place was just beautiful. The living room and bedroom were both supplied with comfortable furniture and it was very spacious. In the kitchen, we had all the cooking supplies needed to eat in (including a outdoors grill-which was great to be able to cook out while overlooking the ocean). The place was literally 40-50 steps from Sapphire beach and the view from the front door was awesome. The owners (Kerry and Kevin) were very helpful in any questions we had or issues that arose (the issue was with the airline, not the condo-but she was very helpful in seeing if there was anything we needed till we obtained our luggage). She was sincere and extremely kind when responding to our questions throughout our entire stay. We will definitely stay here again next time as our stay was absolutely perfect. It was also very convenient to close-by restaurants and the ferry to get to St. John (over a couple of hills to get to RedHook). Couldnt ask for a better condo. There is nothing at all I would change!!!
“Great condo, perfect beach, close to all kinds of activities”
My sister and I spent eight perfect (yes perfect) days in paradise. This condo and location was just as promised. Kerry was helpful and responsive before the trip and during that trip. The condo was in great shape and had everything that anyone could need. The wi-fi worked great and was reasonably priced for our stay. The condo has a printer so that was great because we could print our boarding passes. The beach was stunning, and it was only a few steps from our door. We spent a lot of time on the beach and in the water swimming and snorkeling. The people staying at the condos (our neighbors) were friendly too. We rented a car next door from Budget. Be aware though that if you want a car it's probably best to get it at the airport. When we arrived there was no car for us, but by luck someone brought back a car and she gave it to us. We went on the New Horizons Day Sail to St. John -- takes off right next door at Sapphire Bay Marina. It was outstanding. We also did the VI Ecotour which is close by -- outstanding, too. Red Hook is close by - check out the XO Bistro. Of course don't miss a day trip to St. John from Red Hook. We are already talking about returning with my sister's kids (19 & 22) because we loved this place so much and think they would too. We will certainly recommend this condo to others looking to come to the Virgin Islands.
“Beach lovers paradise”
This is our second time staying at this condo. My wife and I spent ten nights and we thoroughly enjoy each and every day. The beach is a short walk across the lawn. We like to cook and the kitchen is well equiped. The condo was very clean and the washer and dryer are very handy. As a matter of fact the condo is very well equiped all around as there was snorkling gear, beach towels, charcoal for the grill, just about everything you need for an enjoyable stay is there. The town of Red Hook is about a mile away. Take the Safari Bus, which the locals call the dollar bus. If you are feeling adventurous you can take a ferry ride over to St Johns for more fabulous beach action. If you are into local food we recomend Glady's in Charlotte amiale for lunch.
“Home sweet condo”
We couldn't of hoped for a better stay at St.Thomas. The condo was perfect for our family needs. Our children called it our home sweet condo. With younger children going to bed early needing naps and breaks from sun, this was perfect we could go back but still see and hear the beautiful beach so my husband and didn't feel like we missed out. We had the privacy we needed but where able to meet wonderful people. The beach is one of a kind we all enjoyed the views waves , snorkeling , and never crowed then on thise days it was a bit windy the pool being set back was perfect. The condo itself was clean well maintained and the owners could not have been more accommodating or helpful. We thank them especially Kerry for being so quick to respond to any email or phone message. We look forward to another trip sooner than later.
