    We had a wonderful time during our stay at Paradise at the Beach! The view is the best on the island! We beach-hopped to many other beaches, and decided that Sapphire Beach was definitely our favorite! We loved that it was never too crowded, and the swimming and snorkeling was great! We also loved the location of the resort and the proximity to Red Hook. The unit was very clean with all the necessities. Jeff was great to work with, and provided us with lots of good info about the island. We hope to be able to come back and stay here again!

  2. Natalie Weaver

    We had a great time at Paradise at the Beach! We spent a week at Sapphire Beach and it was beautiful! The condo was in a great location and the views were amazing! Everything you needed was provided at the condo…and it was clean. The car rental was included (minus taxes and insurance). It was fun driving around and exploring other beaches. Kelli and Jeff were very nice and easy to deal with too. Thanks for a great vacation!

  3. Angie Young

    Our family spent 8 nights at Paradise at the Beach. It was fabulous. The views were amazing!! Jeff was very responsive and communicated in a very timely manner. The condo was equipped with everything you will need. You will not be disappointed! Most relaxing vacation we have had in a long time.

  4. Becky and Carter

    Jeff and Kelli answered any and all questions we had. The condo was excellent. Was equiped with everything we needed. Had amazing views and just steps away from thr beach. We enjoyed it so much already booked with them again.

  5. Alden Taplin

    Our stay. at Paradise at the beach condo 201 was wonderful. The condo is very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Kelly and Jeff answered all our questions and concerns. The beach is absolutely stunning the views are absolutely spectacular. Looking forward to returning again hopefully next year. Are thanks again to Kelli and Jeff.

    Kelli and Jeff,

    Long over due! Thank you Kelli and Jeff. Once again our stay in March 2017 was fantastic. As always the condo was in mint condition and the view is just amazing. We are already booked for 2018 and look forward to it. The Beach is beautiful with plenty of sea life! If you love snorkeling which that’s all I do when I’m their, you will love this beach! I highly recommend Kelli and Jeff. They always work with you and are always prompt with anything you might need or change.

  7. Jim and Nancy Schatz

    We enjoyed our stay. This was our second time in your condo, and look forward to our next visit. Love the amazing views and beach.

  8. Eva Thomas

    We were fortunate enough to find Paradise at the Beach when we were looking for a condo for our upcoming trip to St. Thomas. Jeff was amazing to work with from the first moment and always took the time to answer all the questions we had. The condo was great and so convenient right on beautiful Sapphire Beach. The weather was perfect, the beach was hardly ever crowded and the views were AMAZING. The rental car was a great addition and very much appreciated!
    I highly recommend booking with Jeff and we will definitely be back!

  9. Myron Daum

    Back in May our friends and us enjoyed another awesome anniversary vacation at your condos. Your hospitality is fantastic and the ocean and beach were once again fabulous. Can’t wait to come back…

    On our last day there I told my wife that although I love my work, and where I live, our home, family and all…Sapphire Beach is so alluring, I could walk away from everything and just stay there the rest of my life!! 

    Thanks again, Jeff and Kelli, we will come again…

  10. Steve & Debbie Smith

    What a wonderful time we had At Jeff’s Condo. He was awesome to work with the entire process. The View is spectacular. The Condo has Everything you need to make your stay perfect. It is very safe. The beach out in front is amazing. We will come back for sure. Thanks Jeff for everything. You helped us out with all of our questions.
    See you SOON.!

  11. Devon gordon

    The most amazing and beautiful place to stay.
    very nice and clean and accommodating.

  12. Carrie griffin

    We had a wonderful time! The condo was very comfortable for the three of us. We spent most of our time on the balcony listening to the water, looking at the gorgeous view, and feeding our little dove friend. We also put the snorkel gear to very good use on the beautiful beach. The rental car was so nice to have in getting around the island. Spent the last morning having coffee on the beach watching the sunrise. Thank you so much for your hospitality!!

  13. Scott Stirrup

    My wife and I stayed in unit 2 and had a great time. Kelly and Jeff were wonderful to work with. The view was awesome and the beach was awesome. Coffee every morning on the balcony was a perfect way to start the day. Everything you need is about a mile away in Red Hook. The ferry to St John is also in Red Hook. If your going to be in St Thomas, then paradise at the beach is the place to be.

    Wow. Thank you Mary for the review from so long ago. Now it’s time to book again!!

  15. Mary DeBono

    My husband and I stayed in unit 2, back in 2011. We have traveled to many other Caribbean destinations since then and still compare everything to St Thomas and this condo. If you are having any doubts, do not. This was an amazing vacation. Jeff was great to rent from.

  16. cyndy downs

    Hi, we just stayed at Paradise on the Beach. The condo was wonderful. The beach is beautiful. Jeff and Kelli are very helpful. We did a lot of exploring while there. We look forward to going back again. I hope the internet will be available next time. I use it to upload pictures so I don’t loose them. We ended up going into Red Hook and using the internet there. Other than that, the condo is perfect. Thank you.

  17. Kevin & Jeanne Conway

    We had a wonderful stay at Jeff and Kellys. Outstanding location, within a minute of Redhook and multiple restaurants and shops, grocery stores, ect. Unit was recently updated and right on the beach. Can’t wait to go back.

  18. Brenda Hiniker

    We had a great time. The condo was perfect and nicely decorated. There was plenty of room with this studio and lots of towels. There was snorkel gear and beach towels. Great view from balcony and enjoyed morning coffee there watching the sunrise.

  19. The Fitches

    We are already looking forward to our trip back next December. We have gone to St. Thomas many times and now ONLY stay at Paradise At the Beach. Kelli and Jeff have everything you could need – lots of extra towels, all the utensils for cooking, and even snorkeling gear. The condos fit us perfectly. We have both the beach and pool at hand; the ferry is close by; the restaurants in Red Hook are handy and close by as well. There are so many places to visit and explore if you want. We tend to spend a lot of time just relaxing – walking, swimming, reading, eating. It is fun to see the kite surfing and wind surfing when the surf it up; sports we loved, but no longer do. At times the winds on this part of the island create some surf which is a lot of fun for sport and for just playing in the water. The snorkeling is always great. There is a bar/food stand near the beach that was new this year. We tried the food and it was wonderful. It is very busy with young folks having a great time.

    We try new places to eat when we find one, and although we are not really fish lovers, the fish is so good in St Thomas that we always order it. There are a variety of choices of restaurants. One favorite is the Italian Restaurant in Red Hook, Pesce Italian. Since we go at Christmas, we enjoy a great meal at the Ritz Carleton on Christmas Eve. In the Bleuwater which is an upscale restaurant with excellent, but pricey food. The beet and goat cheese salad is incredible.

    We drive ourselves in St Thomas. We just remind each other constantly to stay on the left- especially when turning a corner. “Driver shoulder to the road shoulder.” The roads are so curvy and hilly that you probably never go above 35. There are open air buses or cabs available if you prefer

  20. roger and gail caron

    to keli and jeff, sorry we are late with a response. we enjoyed our week at the condo very much.did go to megans b, coki b, as well as sapphire.traveled back and forth to red hook four or five times. condo was perfect,could not get the bedroom fan to work but no big deal. we enjoyed breakfast on the balcony best. got used to driving on the other side of the road. we would consider coming again and would recommend your unit to others. did go to charlotte amalie one day and st john. thank you both once again. roger and gail

  21. Pat & Dick Brown

    We stayed at Paradise at the Beach and had a fantastic week. We spent most of the time enjoying ourselves by the clean and beautiful beach. It is so peaceful. We also enjoyed ourselves at the pool with the beautiful views of St. John’s. The staff at Paradise at the Beach were accommodating and friendly. This has been our second visit to St. Thomas and we stayed both times at Paradise at the Beach. We love the location which is close to Red Hook (lots of fun restaurants and bars). Grocery shopping is conveniently located nearby. We had a rental car and was able to access the island with much ease. Enjoyed the center of town shopping and the restaurants. Paradise at the Beach is conveniently located near the ferry to St. John’s, also, the marina is within walking distance from Paradise at the Beach were we scheduled an excursion with New Horizons for a beautiful sunset dinner cruise on a sailing ship. Another fun place to visit is Latitude 18, and definitely try to make it to Island View Guest House Restaurant. Most importantly, the condo we have stayed at for the last two visits is very well stocked and clean and just a few steps to the beach. It is also beautifully decorated. Thanks again, Jeff & Kelli Azeman, owners of our rental condo.

  22. Rose and Craig

    We stayed at Sapphire beach for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time. The condo has everything you need and is quite comfy. Jeff is very responsive even when we messed up locking the safe, he was just a phone call away and saved the day. The resort was peaceful. We got to watch the St. John fireworks from the resort’s pool area, quite memorable. Loved staying the in Red Hook area, good restaurants without a long drive. Wish I was back there right now.

  23. Glenn & Vicki Porter Lubbock, Texas

    Just another day in paradise! (Well, actually 10 days) Glenn & I had the most wonderful time in Unit 1 from June 1-10! The weather was perfect & the condo too!!! You always hear from people that its Location, Location, Location in almost anything, & this is so very true of Paradise @ the Beach!!! The condo has everything you could possibly need or want! We always enjoy snorkeling, the Dive shops & boats are close by, grocery stores in Red Hook very convenient, & a good selection of restaurants nearby as well! We were so glad that Moe’s Market had opened @ Marina Market’s old location! We also found Gourmet Galley in Havensight Mall to have a great selection of deli-meats, cheeses, & desserts! The only downside to Paradise @ the Beach is you eventually have to go home!!! Jeff, it’s always a wonderful vacation for us, & we thank you so very much for sharing your home away from home in paradise with Glenn & me!!! And “yes” We will be back!!!

  24. Stephanie Thomas

    My family and I recently spent a week at Paradise at the Beach in St Thomas and we loved it! It was our first time there and we were not disappointed. The condo was perfect, it was very clean and stocked with necessities such as paper products, dishes and pots and pans. There were also snorkel gear sets for our use and fresh flowers on the table when we arrived. The condo is located on Sapphire Beach, which according to a couple of locals is the best beach on the island for snorkeling, it came with access to beach chairs and the staff will set them out for you, food and beverages were available for purchase on the beach as well and a waitress comes around and takes you’re order. The views from the resort were breathtaking as well, St John and the British Virgin Islands can be viewed from there and the marina is next door if you want to take a trip to the BVI. Red Hook is only a mile away and has many restaurants and bars, the ferry to St John is located there as well. We took a car ferry to Cruz Bay, St John for a day trip. We loved our trip to St Thomas and will definitely stay at Paradise at the Beach again.

  25. Lili LeBreton

    What a wonderful time once again! Jeff and Kelly it’s always a pleasure staying at the condo you provide us with all that we need and then some. The view, the beach and the snorkeling are just amazing! We are booked for next year and staying just a little longer!!

    Thanks Again and we will be in touch!!

    Lili LeBreton and Rich Macduff

  26. Jacky LaJeunesse

    Hi Jeff and Kelli,
    Had to drop you a great big thank you again! This is our 2nd time renting from you and you never let us down. The conda and car were awesome, everything you need to enjoy your stay. You housekeeper was great for freshening up for the 2nd week with family coming, that was great! The views were fantastic and the beach is the best for snorkeling. Saw stingrays and sea turtles like crazy!!! Condo very close to Red Hook and grocery shopping. We will be back but not waiting 2 yrs this time….lol
    Thanks again for everything!
    Don and Jacky

  27. Ellen Payne

    This is our 2nd time staying at Paradise at the Beach and again it was great. We could not have asked for a better location; 2nd floor, end unit with direct view to the beach. The condo is fully equipped, so you really just need your bathing suite. Would highly recommend booking Paradise at the Beach, and Jeff is great to work with. We will be back…..

  28. Becky & Jeff Lavely

    My husband and I stayed in Unit# 201C the week of 02/6/16-02/13/16. Jeff was great to work with from the very beginning! The rental car was handy and the trip from the airport to the resort is a quick and easy drive. The condo is just like the pictures. We had everything we needed. The beach is incredible! The water really is sapphire blue! The week we were there the weather was perfect every day and we swan and snorkeled and enjoyed the beach all day, every day. We went out in the evenings for a bite to eat but didn’t spend too much time in Red Hook. The Food Center is handy and has everything you need. They have a deli with the best roasted chicken and other great hot and cold dishes so we didn’t need to “cook” at the condo. You must be sure and try the Cruzan Rum! The ferry in Red Hook is very convenient to travel to St John. I still think Sapphire Beach is the best! We kept saying “Next year we will do this or do that” because every day we just wanted to relax and enjoy our beach! The snorkeling is fantastic and Jeff provides all the gear! The pool area is a bit run down and some areas need some renovation on the resort but the fantastic beach and beautiful water makes up for all of that! We felt very safe in Red Hook and on the resort. We will definitely return next year!

  29. Lisa Unger

    We rented the 2 condo’s in “C” Building with adjoined decks. The condo’s were very nice. The kitchens were well equipped. It was nice to have enough bath and beach towels to use for the week. The second floor deck has a beautiful view of the beach, palm trees, and turquois water…all pictures you view on website are what you can expect. Snorkeling from the beach was very good. I must say, every day was “Paradise at the Beach”. Thanks to the owners who made it simple by providing enough information before hand for a smooth transition to the condo. We would definitely choose these condo’s again. Thank you.

  30. Joyce and Ted Fitch

    For several years we have stayed at Paradise at the Beach, and we hope to continue coming back each year. It is the perfect spot for a vacation. We swim/play each day in the ocean and also in the pool. The snorkeling is great and the beach is huge so there is always a place for us on our own. There are so many water sports right at Sapphire – fun to do and fun to watch. On a windy day it is great to see the kiteboarders/surfers fly into the air!

    Red Hook is right next door so it is an easy trip to get to the ferry to go to St John for a day to shop or play. Red Hook provides shops and lots of different places to eat. We enjoyed having breakfast at Fish Tails in Red Hook, and the Italian Restaurant, Pesce Italian in Red Hook was great if you want a change from fish – homemade pasta and excellent food. We bought groceries and had snacks and sometimes a meal on our balcony. There is a great little food stand right outside the Building C condos that serves fresh sandwiches and drinks. It is not fast, but it is very good.

    This year we did something different. I had a spa pedicure in Red Hook. It is a shop that has lots of aquariums with chairs attached. You put your feet in your personal aquarium and these fish with no teeth, Garra rufa, nibble at all the dry skin on your feet. Sounds weird, but it is fun, tickles, and makes for a 15 minute adventure and very smooth feet.

    Sightseeing is easy from the condo. There is much to see on the East End and you avoid the traffic of Charlotte Amalie. Coki Beach is great but crowded usually; Magen’s Bay is beautiful and calm, but no snorkeling there. Check out when the cruise ships come in and that is when things are more busy.

    We always look forward to returning from the day we get back from St Thomas. Jeff and Kelli make it easy to book, and everything you need is at the condo.

  31. Chris Owens

    Loved our vacation at Sapphire Beach. The unit was in great condition, nice to have the snorkeling gear/towels already there, the beach was just as the photo’s and better than expected. Easy to reserve a boating excursion right from the marina. Quick drive into Red Hook for restaurants and grocery’s. Had been thinking of a unit on Bolongo Bay, went by there and sapphire was far superior beach and location. Was easy and seamless making the reservations with Jeff. Would stay there again, no question. We did end up walking up the hill to the other condo’s and they had a restaurant that was pretty good food and drink.

  32. Carol M.

    My stay was nothing short of perfect. The beachside unit provided excellent sunrise and sunsets views. Just minutes from shopping and restaurants I rarely needed to head into town for basic needs. (More time for sunbathing)…Mr. Azeman was very professional, I would definitely return.

  33. J. Stingley

    We rented Units 201C and 202C with another couple and opened up the louvered doors on the balconies so we could share that space – perfect for two couples. Both units were renovated, clean, comfortable and well supplied with dishes, pots and pans, snorkel equipment, beach towels, linens, etc. The view from our units was beautiful and the beach was easy in and out for great snorkeling and swimming. We toured the island and didn’t see any place better than Sapphire Beach for location.
    Jeff made the rental process easy and was very responsive to any and all questions. We would definitely recommend this for a relaxing vacation.

  34. Mike M.

    My wife and I stayed in unit 1 for 2 weeks . We absolutely enjoyed our time. The condo is beautiful with a breathtaking view of the Sapphire beach, which in our opinion is the best beach in St. Thomas. The condo is well appointed, clean, comfortable, and exceeds all our expectations. The location of the condo is also excellent. Jeff is extremely professional, personal, and helpful. He answered all my questions and provided all the information we needed. We look forward to staying there again.

  35. Joe

    My wife and I had a great time staying at Jeff’s condo. Located near Red Hook and the Marina was very convenient. Jeff was very professional and responded promptly to any questions we had before arriving and during our stay. I would stay at Jeffs again!

  36. Carol Simmers

    It’s been several weeks since we returned from our wonderful stay at one of Jeff & Kelly’s condos on Sapphire Beach. We stayed in unit C201, which totally met our expectations. We were fortunate to experience beautiful weather while we were on St. Thomas in the middle of August. We were impressed with the good condition, cleanliness, and amenities of our condo, with no surprises or disappointments with our accommodations. These condos provide an unparalleled view of the beach/ocean, relaxing deck, and immediate access to the beach. We loved the beach, and found ourselves snorkeling every day! Having Red Hook minutes away was very convenient to a wide variety of restaurants, and supplies. We made several trips throughout the week to the Food Center outside of Red Hook, being the closet real grocery store to the condos. Prices were somewhat higher, but we enjoyed not having to pay sales tax on everything that we purchased!! We appreciated our interactions with Jeff as he provided us with great instructions, guidance, and total professionalism. We took the car ferry to St. John one day but found us ready to get back to Sapphire Beach by that afternoon. Definitely stop and try the BBQ truck at the top of the hill to the resort, you won’;t be disappointed and a great view to top it off with “all you can eat” BBQ and ribs!! We found having a rental car a HUGE advantage, which allowed us to really explore the island, albeit driving on the left side of the highway. We would totally recommend staying at one of Jeff & Kelly’s condos, providing a comfortable, relaxing beach paradise setting and plan to return to St. Thomas as soon as we can!

  37. Taylor S.

    This review is long over due, based on what a wonderful time my wife and I had staying there during our honeymoon. Jeff was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and the place exceeded our expectations. It was close to the ferry and some of our favorite places on St. Thomas. Stay here. It has everything you could ask for and there was nothing better than opening the doors to the porch in the morning and looking out on the beach. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you Jeff!

  38. Cathy O'Pry

    My husband and I stayed in Unit 3 during 2nd week of August… The View was Awesome ! We loved the condo! Working with Jeff was so easy. He’s friendly, professional, and informative. Also- It was also great to get the voucher for a week’s rental car. It was so awesome to just walk outside to a gorgeous beach and have someone bring you a lounge chair ! Our first 2 days we NEVER Left ! We visited with a couple of guys at the Marina on the property who do fishing charters. One said “There’s only a couple of places on the whole island where you can walk out from your condo directly to the beach BUT THE VIEW HERE is Pretty Amazing!” And my husband got hooked on searching for the amazing Eagle Rays once he spotted them (No pun intended). He found the spot for turtles and eagle rays and was SO Stoked ! He saw lots of turtles and during 5 or 6 snorkel trips he found the eagle rays. He said he found some reef squid who “put on a light show” when they kept changing colors ! I’m not a strong swimmer so I played in the shallows and LOVED It ! I spent a lot of time also in the lounger under a shade tree just soaking up the amazing beauty of the ocean & islands. GREAT Place – I definitely recommend !

  39. Tammy

    My family and I were there in two condos that were side by side in August. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. These condo’s were great. Awesome snorkling right outside of our door and beautiful pool. Jeff gave us names of places to eat and we didn’t go wrong. The bbq food truck at top of resort was by far the best meal we had and the least expensive. We did find Red Hook food to be a little pricey. There was plenty of snorkling equipment in each condo for our families and thank god there even was aloe vera for sunburns because some of us didn’t listen to the ‘be careful just because it isn’t hot doesn’t mean you won’t burn” warnings. The pool got us everytime with the constant breeze you didn’t realize you were burning. We had everything we needed right there and everything was top notch. We highly recommend these condo’s to anyone that want’s to have a amazing time.

  40. Steve Simmers

    Carol & I had a wonderful week at your Paradise at the Beach condo #201. The weather was great, it rained briefly on Sunday, snorkeled every day, and really appreciated the great beach access. We loved the great view from the deck at all times of the day! I will most definitely write an endorsing review for your condo, and St. Thomas, in general this week. We made a few friends and really had to “peel” ourselves away when leaving for the airport. I appreciated the rental car more than I had realized. We will definitely contact you and Kelly to reserve the condo again on our next visit to St. Thomas. Thank you for your communication, professionalism ,and guidance on our wonderful beach week!!

  41. Toby Wright

    My friends and I visit St Thomas often and we usually stay at a hotel. Not any more!! Jeff was awesome! The condo was in a perfect location, very clean, up to date! this website is definitely saved in my FAVORITES!!

  42. Anne Ochsner Post author

    Fabulous wonderful vacation in St. Thomas. Paradise at the Beach is very close to Red Hook and ferry to St. John, which was an added bonus. My friends and I enjoyed every minute, the lodging, the waters, the shopping – and not least of all – the restaurants! Sitting on the deck in the morning with coffee started the day and sitting on the deck with some wonderful libation ended the day. Look in the dictionary under vacation – it should read Paradise at the Beach. Oh, and a personal thank you to Jeff for remembering the override code on the safe – I almost couldn’t come home!

  43. Cora Sandstrom

    What an amazing vacation!!! We were there with two other couples and we all left for home feeling it was our best vacation ever. It is exactly as it shows in the photos. Clean, ON THE BEACH, spacious, having a car was such a plus……….. Jeff is quick to reply with any question or concern before, during and after being a guest in his conds. We will be back as soon as our schedule allows……….hopefully for 2 weeks (or more) next time.

  44. Jim and Lynn Tuso

    For anyone considering staying in St. Thomas, Paradise at the Beach should be your first inquiry for availability. We booked with some friends and were lucky enough to get two adjoining balcony rooms in the “C” Building. The furnishings were great, but the views even better. The only drawback was the unsightly, damaged pool bar/restaurant area from previous storms which the HOA should remove immediately. However this is well out of the owners control and one does not see the pool area from the Building “C” condo’s. The proximity to Red Hook (less than a mile) was quite convenient for groceries, restaurants and sailing and day trips to St. John or the BVI’s. Jeff and Kelli are exceptional owners and constantly keep you updated on everything you’ll need for your trip. We will definitely return to Paradise at the Beach. It was a wonderful, relaxing experience, everything you want in a Caribbean Vacation.

  45. Lili LeBreton

    Wow is th only word i can utter! Great Condo Jeff thank you so much. It was clean and had everything we needed! The view from D203 is utterly amazing and the breeze is constant. It was wonderful to get away from the Frigid, Snowy state of Mass LOL. Sapphire beach is just beautiful! The Snorkeling is amazing. To be able to swim with Rays and Turtles well WOW again! It was thrilling to say the least! Please pencil us in for next year you have a permenant guests for that Condo every year! Thank you again!

    Lili LeBreton and Rich Macduff

  46. Bonnie Rohr

    Jeff we loved your condo and the location. There is not one thing to complain about. The view is the prettiest I have ever experienced and we have been to several islands for stays. Loved the Virgins 😉 Would we return, Im not sure we have several places on our bucket list, but if we return to the Virgin Islands you can rest assured we would want to stay at your Paradise. We found ourselves dinning at home most of the time because we loved the view and atmosphere on the patio and wow what a patio. The grocery down the street has wonderful fresh meats and fish and produce.
    Would we recommend your condo, in a second and did just that to my husbands brother over the weekend. He and his wife are thinking of a stay in Aug. but not committed as of yet.
    Sorry i didn’t write a review sooner. Life can be hetic when returning from a vacation.

    Sincerely, Bonnie Rohr

  47. Bill & Diane McAuley

    Loved being right on the beach and the condo was furnished with everything you needed. I don’t travel well, but did not get homesick once during my stay at Paradise on the Beach. The car rental was also another very nice feature. Would recommend to any of our friends/family. We had a very relaxing stay with all of the comforts of home!

  48. Karen and Bruce Shirring

    Another fabulous week at Paradise at the Beach! This time we hated to leave even more than last year. The condo was very comfortable and stocked with everything we needed. The weather was perfect–couldn’t ask for a better getaway from the cold Ohio winter. Next year hoping to be able to stay for 2 weeks! Thanks for everything, Jeff. We can’t say enough about what a nice vacation we had for the second time.

  49. Lana, Michael and Nicholas Rich

    Jeff, we cannot thank you enough! I am so glad that I found your website when I was searching for a place to stay at USVI. We truly enjoyed our stay! It was three of us, with a 12-year-old. The place had everything we needed, and the car was a very nice bonus to have! The beautiful beach is just steps away from the building. The views of the beach – amazing! We had breakfast on the deck every morning and were just watching and listening for the sounds of the beach. We did drive around, of course, and took a barge to St. John, etc., but we found that Sapphire Beach was the best beach we could hope for. We love to snorkel, and this was the beach where we saw the turtles, the rays, even a barracuda (harmless), also coral and a variety of tropical fish. The next time we come – we won’t even need to leave this beach for a week! Of course, it is an ocean and the water can get a bit rough, so on those days it is more difficult to see the ocean life, but we saw plenty during this trip. Some areas there are under renovation (extensive and prolonged renovation, it seems, as no one was working on anything), but this is common there and it does not take away from the beach or anything. They still have a stand there if you want to buy a tropical drink or a burger or something. Also, at the top of the hill as you enter the resort, there is this “hole in the wall” trailer on the right-hand side. It’s nothing to look at, but their BBQ is amazing! The locals suggested it and we could not even find it at first (they are not open for dinner). We did cook most of the time. The grocery store is nearby and very convenient. I read someone’s post on TripAdvisor, I believe, about them buying something at the local KMart; that is the place I would avoid at all costs: Their service is very slow; we stood an hour at checkout, and it is ok for a checker to just close the register and walk away with a line of people still standing there. Anyway, enough about that. Go to a grocery store and you will be glad you did. We read someone else’s comment here and chartered Tribal VI. Bill and Jason were wonderful! If curious, I left a review for that trip on TripAdvisor, so will not restate here. There is no free wifi here, but my AT&T worked great, so I was able to check all my emails, etc., by just using my data plan (there is no roaming here). I forgot to reserve our rental car; waited until the last moment. Emailed Jeff in panic. Jeff put me in touch with Debbie at Budget and we had our car. Jeff is the best vacation property owner, I think, and we rent many vacation properties when traveling (as opposed to the hotels). On the way back from St. Thomas, our flight was cancelled due to weather. Unfortunately, our room was already booked, but we contacted the resort and they found us another room in a different property they own about a minute away by car. It was a nice unit, even with a private outdoor pool, but my son said, thank goodness we are here for only one night. Mom, please rent from Jeff again next time. That’s a child talking! :-) Truly, we were very sad to have to leave. I think the next time we will not need to do all those tours anymore; we will just stay at the Sapphire Beach the entire time – it’s that good.

    WOW!! Thanks for the great informative review.

    We was visiting to st. Thomas first time. It was beautiful stay at beach front view. Me and my husband with three kids. Everything was great. Kitchen was very helpful, I cook so we didn’t have to go out to eat often. Also ferry was close by. Owner was very helpful, it made my vacations very smooth. Thank you very much and if we ever come back to visit. We will be booking from you. Once again thank you very much.

  51. Jackie and John Henrich

    We just returned from our stay in beautiful St. Thomas! It was our first time here and will return for sure! We have been to many tropical destinations and I have to say this was our favorite! We stayed at Paradise on the Beach, located on Sapphire Beach. Jeff made our vacation booking a breeze! The condo was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. We took advantage of the cooler, packing up sandwiches and drinks for the many visits to the beautiful beaches. We took the car ferry to St. John twice. We even witnessed a wedding from our second floor balcony while enjoying our morning coffee! We felt very safe here and will be back for sure!!

    Our stay in St. Thomas was wonderful. We stayed at a condo in the Sapphire Beach Resort we rented from Paradise at the Beach. The location was perfect. The condo was on the 2nd floor, which I thought might be an inconvenience, but it was actually better than the 1st floor. With the higher elevation we were able to enjoy the beautiful view of the beach and the bay every morning when we woke up. The condo was clean and quiet. There were plenty of towels and dishes for our needs. The owners also provide snorkel gear, which looked to be brand new. And speaking of the owners, I have to say how wonderful Jeff was in assisting us during our stay. My husband had to have emergency surgery a few weeks before our trip and I forgot to make car reservations. By the time I tried to make reservations, all the car companies were completely booked. I called Jeff and he was able to quickly get us a reservation. Jeff also was quick to respond when we needed assistance finding things around the condo. He also was able to help us with the rental car after our departure. I can’t say enough about how attentive and helpful he was for us. Our visit to St. Thomas was our first. We took a trip to St. John’s for a tour of the island. I would recommend taking the ferry over and asking one of the taxi drivers for a tour. The cost was $25 pp, but was very well worth it. The gentleman that gave us the tour had lived on the island since 1956 and helped build the infrastructures there. We also took an all day sail with Alaunt Charters. That was wonderful. Ron and Carol, the owners, gave us a private tour around the islands and took us out for our first snorkel trip. I highly recommend them. We loved our trip to St. Thomas and can’t wait to come back. We would definitely stay at Sapphire Beach again.



    Thanks for the great review. Glad your vacation was great!!!!!


  53. Craig and Mary

    Sapphire Beach is a great location to everything!! The condo truly is right on the beach and the view is amazing. We chose the deck and second level just for safety with this being our first time to the area. It’s a friendly and very safe location and we would not hesitate to get a main level with patio for our next stay;) everything was just as Jeff had promised and he was very helpful while we were planning for the trip. We stayed for nine days and visited 4 beaches, all within 5-15 minutes from Sapphire. The rental car was great, so glad Jeff recommended it. It was very easy to get around once you get used to driving on the left side of the road. Great restaurants are just down the hill within 3 minutes driving as well as the fairy. Our favorite restaurant was Molly Malones in Red Hook. It was very reasonably priced and great food as well! Our kids are 10, 13 and 15 and this was there favorite too. If you want a quick and easy meal, we heard the tip & stir had great burgers and they DO! It’s kind of a sports bar theme so you can catch a game on TV also. The food center grocery store is nearby but expensive. It was worth the short drive to kmart and a lot cheaper;) take a gps for your car if you can, we did and had no problems finding our way around. Charlotte Amalia has great shopping! The microwave and phone in our condo did not work but Jeff was unaware so I’m sure it’s repaired by now. Some of the areas on Sapphire are being renovated and closed but it is still very nice. This was the best vacation we have ever had, absolutely beautiful weather and ocean water temp was perfect! Jeff has plenty of towels, snorkel gear, dishes and even a cooler for our use.

    Hi Mary. Thanks for the great review!! Sorry about the microwave. I just had it replaced with a brand new convection/mcrowave oven. We look forward to hearing from you again in the future.


  54. Kaileigh & Ed

    Our trip was fantastic!! Sapphire beach is a great location with excellent snorkeling. The resort itself is very safe area with security. Our balcony had wonderful views of the beach and views of st. John. We were close to red hook, public ferry, and to charter fishing. Jeff has been great with answering questions in a timely manner which is definitely appreciated. Easiest vacation reservation that I’ve ever made! The condos were well maintained, clean, and welcoming. We were very impressed with the condos and even exceeded expectations. we have already decided to come back next year! A++++

  55. Brigitte and Scott

    I have been meaning to write this since we returned from our 9 glorious days at the “Paradise at the Beach” condo. We wanted to stay on Sapphire Beach since we first saw the area during a cruise in November of 2013. We started looking in August of 2014 for a place to stay on Sapphire Beach, and were unbelievably fortunate to have found the Paradise at the Beach condos. We sent a request for information and shortly after, Jeff called us and answered all our questions. He was kind, helpful and made booking very easy. We were off to a great start. We arrived in St Thomas on November 29th and left on December 9th. Everything from the time we arrived until we left was perfect. One always expects certain glitches on vacation.. well not this one. We arrived at the airport and had no problem getting our rental. Within a few minutes of landing, we were driving towards the condo thanks to Jeff’s great directions. Upon arrival, we couldn’t have been more pleased with the accommodations. Everything was perfect. Clean, plenty of towels, well maintained, beautiful beach and the staff members were outstanding. We had an absolutely marvelous time and my only concern about writing this review is that we may have a hard time getting the availability we want next time :-) The one and only issue was when we left… we were both kicking ourselves for not having booked a full 2 weeks! We will not make that mistake again.
    Brigitte & Scott


    Brigitte and Scott.

    Awesome. Thanks so much. Look forward to hearing from you again soon. Book early.


  56. Nancy Reyner

    We had a wonderful vacation staying at one of the condos at Paradise on the Beach. The beach there, called Saphire Beach is the best beach on the island. We were able to walk out of our condo, and the beach was right there – even a great snorkeling area! The accommodations were lovely. I enjoyed having a kitchen for some meals so we didn’t have to eat out too much. The location was perfect.

  57. Andrea Quinn and Kim Sanders

    We stayed here in July for one week. The unit was clean and complete with all necessary amenities, as well as, games and sports/beach equipment. Also of great benefit, is the central location of the unit to the beach and the pool. And if you are hungry or need a drink, the little beach/bar cabana is just steps away. A great time was had by all and we will definitely be back!!

  58. Wade Curry

    I’ve been going to Sapphire for over 30 years and this is the 4th time I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with Jeff and Kelli. I continue to do so because the experience is consistently fantastic. Their attention to detail to assure your comfort and to make the trip as problem free as possible means you can spend all your time just having fun! They are always responsive and are committed to assuring your trip is flawless.
    Thank you again guys!
    Wade Curry!

  59. Pat & Richard Brown

    Our vacation couln’t have turned out more fantasic! Jeff, the condo was absolutely gorgeous, clean and very well stocked. We enjoyed having the condo right next to our friends and were able to share the patios together. It was so relaxing sitting out enjoying our breakfast and coffee every morning looking out at the beautiful beach. The beach area was very well kept up along with the pool. We also enjoyed the round-the-clock security and how accomodating and friendly the staff were. The location is perfect. Really ejoyed the short ride to Red hook restaurants and bars and also the convenience of getting to St. John by ferry. Everyone was sad to leave, but your condo and location will definetely be our first choice for a future visit. I know our friends will be joining us since this was their second time at Paradise. Thanks for making our trip so enjoyable!!!!

  60. Nick K

    Our family just returned from a 9 day stay at Paradise at the Beach, and had a lovely time! The room was nice, clean, and many amenities were provided inside the condo. The beach area was gorgeous, and the pool was nice, too. We came back home relaxed and so thankful for this opportunity. Thanks, Jeff, for such a hassle-free transaction for our vacation stay. Again, we had a wonderful time and we are already thinking about trying the St. Croix condo for our next adventure.

  61. Stephanie Mathosian

    We chose to stay at Sapphire Beach for this visit because we have a daughter that works in Red Hook, and we are so happy that we chose Paradise on the Beach! This is the kind of place where you can be perfectly content without having to do typical sightseeing activities if you don’t feel like it. Jeff was fantastic to work with, the unit was clean and as pictured. The beach and pool were great, and I have to add that our mattress was great! Do not hesitate to choose Paradise on the Beach for your next vacation!

  62. Jeff Azeman

    Hi Nicole. So glad to hear you had a great first experience at Sapphire. Sorry about the bed. We will get it replaced. We replace all beds every 12-18 months. That bed is exactly 13 months old. It must be time. We look forward to hearing back from you again in the future.

    Jeff and Kelli

  63. Nicole bauer

    This was my first time at saphire beach. From the condo beautiful views and located right on the beach. It succeeded my expectations with location. Only half mile from red hook/ fairy to St.John and perfectly centered on east end of island. The maintenance crew at saphire beach were always attending to the property and security was always there. There is a great lil resturant up the hill that you could walk to as well. If u enjoy the water sports and done excursions saphire beach is perfect place tk stay because many if the boats take off right from there. Again location, location!!! My condo was very clean and Jeff was always available and very prompt. I couldn’t ask gor a better experience in regards to customers satisfaction with Jeff(owner). The condo was very clean and nice. Only issue, they must get new mattress!! Sleeper sofa was more comfortable for me. I’m 105 and my hips were killing. I need tk be honest. But other then that I highly recommend this unit and staying here. U can’t go wrong!! I beg Jeff will replace that mattress to:)

    The name says it all! Paradise at the beach! Once again 10 days of heaven on earth! I think this is our 6th or 7th time we have stayed @ PATB & we enjoyed every second of it! This has been the 1st year without my Mom & we were also celebrating our 46th anniversary, so there is nothing in the world better than staying here to relax and unwind! It’s funny how Glenn & I make all these grandiose plans of all these things we are going to do when we get there, but once you R there, there is never a reason to leave!!! Thank you so much Jeff for letting us share your piece of paradise and in the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger “We’ll B Back”!!! Thanks again Jeff!!! Glenn & Vicki Porter Lubbock,Texas

    Jeff – I just can’t get St Thomas out of my mind since we have been home. Our eight day stay was so WONDERFUL. The rent a car was a must have and I was kinda worried about the KEEP LEFT but managed to only have one right side encounter and luckily things turned out all good. The condo was so perfect for us and was equipped with all the necessities. I loved taking my morning coffee on the balcony and watching the sun rise with the sound of the waves crashing. My husband and I are totally beach people and this was a perfect place for us. Sapphire Beach is so beautiful, a great place to swim, snorkel and relax. We got to know all the folks that ran the Banana Cabana and enjoyed our meals and drinks at least once a day. It was nice to have someone take a lounge chair to your personal spot on the beach and yes we loved having a cooler that you provided for your guest. We went to Red Hook and rode the ferry over to St John and then a taxi over to Cinnamon Bay and played in the ocean and then had a wonderful dinner at High Tide that included a couple of BUSHWACKERS. Another plus was having the Marina next door to the condos. Our last day was our anniversary so we decided to Charter a boat with Captain Patrick of Privateer Charters over to the BVI’s. We enjoyed hanging out at Foxy’s and then on another island to Foxy’s Taboo for lunch. Swimming and enjoying the beauty of Sandy Spit was unbelievable. I could go on and on…so simply said..the place is beautiful, I loved the condo and I WILL BE BACK. :)

  68. Heidi Wright


    We are sad to be leaving today. We had a great week. We took the car barge over to St John and explored some north side beaches. That was great fun and really easy to do. Our older kids, who just graduated high school, got a kick out of Thor at the Banana Cabana here. Everything was beautiful. We did dinners in Red Hook most nights but ate lunch and breakfast here at the condo. My friends husband dove with Red Hook Dive 4 mornings. He really enjoyed it. Thanks for having everything clean and nice once again. It was a great week of relaxation. We’ll call you again when we are ready to come back!


  69. Bryan Burt

    This is our third time staying at Jeffs place for 11 days of fun in the sun..Jeff is a pleasure to deal with and the rent a car really seals the deal..It is so nice to have everything close by and the snorkeling at sapphire is great..Went to smith beach right up the street, st johns hike to honeymoon beach, and the car ferry to explore st john east end..The only problem you will have is the time going too fast and having to leave..Thanks again Jeff and we will be back..

  70. Scott & Bonita Ekx

    Paradise at the Beach is indeed just that, it was hard to leave at the end of our 10 day stay. Everything you need is available as the condo is fully equipped. We have rented from Jeff & Kelli in the past and will continue to do so in the future. The ease of scheduling and the ability to trust them speaks volumes and I would highly recommend booking any of their 3 condos. We have stayed at Unit 1 as well as Unit 2. The pictures are accurate and the view from the patio is breath taking. We appreciated having the snorkel gear available, it saves on luggage space big time! We are already angling on how we will be able to stay for 3 weeks next year, I think I’ll need a doctor’s note for a good dose of mental health! Best choice for the best memories!

  71. Richa / Cindy Cizmas

    We left 4/14/2014 from St. Thomas. Had GREAT weather, it was a very lazy vacation. Having morning coffee breakfast on the balcony. Then going down either by the pool or the beach for sun and more sun. Unit 3 was just like Jeff’s pictures. Having the car was a plus went to St. Johns, twice to Magan’s beach. You have to go there at least once. Ate most dinners in Red Hook our favorite was XO restaurant. Also for a great burger go to Tap & Still in Red Hook a very small place but GREAT food / beer. Food comes in a paper lunch bag and you eat it at your table.
    Again Jeff’s places are great.

    PS We came back home to 3 inches of new snow, which broke a record of snow fall from 1881 94+ inches.

  72. Don and Jacky LaJeunesse

    Hi Jeff and Kelli,
    Had to write and let you know what a wonderful time we had at your condo on
    St. Thomas. The condo was equipped with everything a person could need to enjoy
    their stay, Loved the location and access to everything! Off the Grid BBQ at top
    of driveway was the bomb! Having a car was great for going into downtown and
    other beaches and we were glad we had one. We left a couple of noodle floaties
    in closet for future renters or yourselves to use. Thanks again for a great stay
    we couldn’t have found a better place to be on St. Thomas!!! Can’t wait to go back!

  73. Ryan

    We stayed at Paradise at the Beach for our honeymoon and it was fantastic! Great views of the other islands from our balcony. We rented jet skis from the marina which was conveniently located at the resort. The condo had everything we needed. The location was quiet and relaxing. We will definitely stay again for our next trip to St Thomas. Jeff was super easy going and great to work with!

  74. Bob and Lorraine

    Just got back a week ago from month stay in St Thomas. Stayed in Jeff and Kelli’s condo in C building for 3 weeks and then their condo in D building! Both are beautiful and very clean. Have stayed in their condo in C building for past 4 years and love it. Everything you need is there! honeymooned in St Thomas 47 years ago and decided to go back on 40th. Have been coming back every year since. Just booked Jeff’s condo in D building for a month for next year! Wouldn’t stay anywhere else :)

  75. Jeff Azeman

    Thank you so much for your amazing review Paul and Lora. Kelli and I are so happy that you loved St Thomas and our condo. We look forward to hearing from you in the future. BOOK EARLY!!!! We are already booking into 2015.

  76. Paul and Lora Lichon

    We absolutely had a WONDERFUL time! The condo was neat and clean and well maintained, exactly the way it was described. The view from the balcony was breath taking. The pool was clean and it also had a beautiful view. We can’t say enough about the way we were treated there. Everyone is so friendly and happy. The security guard that walked around the grounds was there morning until long after dark. He always had a smile on his face with a friendly and welcoming “HELLO.”

    We highly recommend PARADISE AT THE BEACH for your vacation of a life time. Whether it is a romantic vacation for two or a family fun vacation, this is the place to be.

    Thank Jeff and Kelli for letting us enjoy your little piece of heaven.

    Paul and Lora Lichon

    YES! We will definitely be back next year.

  77. Gary & Jeanne

    We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay in unit 3! The unit was very clean and well maintained. Jeff’s housekeeper came by after one week and replaced towels and bed linens and also did an excellent job of cleaning. The view, the balcony was wonderful. The bed was comfy. For some reason 5 o’clock came a little earlier each day.
    We went exploring the island for beaches and places to stay. Sapphire Beach was the best!!! Jeff’s condo was the best! Don’t get me wrong – the “other places” were nice enough but really high on the hill and much more $$$. The beach is the best.
    We had chicken wings and drinks at The Sapphire Village Bar and Grill next door, BBQ chicken and wings, rice and beans at Off The Grid at the top of the hill. Fish Tails in Red Hook was excellent. Amigos is up stairs from Molly Mollone’s, both very good. The Lobster Grill at Bolongo Bay was very good, Iggie’s Beach Bar also at Bolongo Bay was very good. I had an excellent Roti with rice and peas at the Haven Sight Grill in Haven Sight. I went back the second week for another! We found a good grocery store on the way to the condo which had everything you would need. The rental car was an added bonus too.
    Everything was as advertised. Yes, we would return.
    Thank You Jeff and Kelli!
    Good fish, good chicken, good Roti’s, good rum drinks – Let’s go back now!!!

  78. Dave and Lynne Roche

    We had such a great time at Paradise at the Beach. The condo was so clean and perfect for the two of us. Everything you need. Grocery stores and many restaurants so close and spent a couple of nights up the hill at the Sapphire Beach Grill. Lots of fun music and people.
    The condo is in a perfect location with a beautiful view. I met the local LARGE iguana at the pool, YIKES, but guess he just startled me. Fun to walk down to the boats and see the fishermen come in and feed the fish. Rented a boat to go over to the BVI and had a blast at the Soggy Dollar. The beach was spectacular, food and staff fun. I would have loved to return just for an entire day. We also went on a sunset cruise. We left from the dock and they were so accommodating, food was wonderful and fun to see the island from the boat.
    Jeff and Kelli are very honest condo owners and we would definitely recommend staying in one of there condos. Hopefully we will be back soon! Nice to have the option of the Budget rent a car. Ran into some miscommunication with them but Jeff handled it for us. Thank you!

  79. Jon

    It was a pleasure to stay in a place that was accurately represented in the pictures and description. The condo unit, (#1), was in a perfect location on the beach. Having the auto rental and inclusive access to the snorkeling equipment and beach chairs made for easy fun activities right outside the condo. There was food available onsite during the day, but not the evening. This, however, was no big deal as we could walk easily 5 minutes behind the condos, past the marina and up the hill to the resort on the hill, where a very pleasant bar with surprisingly good food was located. I don’t often offer advice, but if someone tells me they are considering a stay in St. Thomas, I will absolutely suggest staying in one of the Azeman units. If I/we ever head to the USVI again, this will be my only choice in which to stay. (Don’t try to fix something that is not broken.) As an aside… was very nice to never have seen a single insect in the unit. Kudos to the people who service your units. It was great to feel we really got our money’s worth and more.

    This is my second time at the lovely Paradise at the Beach condo at Sapphire Beach. I have no reservations in recommending this condo. It is exquisite and it is right on the beach. Jeff is a very caring and honest owner who wants to insure that you have a wonderful time. My friend and I would go back in a minute and she plans to bring her husband there next year. I used to live in the Virgin Islands and I know that it is a great location. Near to Red Hook and ferries. Easy access to fun and groceries and restaurants of all sorts. I think this property is very special and would highly recommend it to you.

    10 fantastic days at Sapphire Beach. We had such a great vacation at St. Thomas. Staying at Sapphire Beach resort was the undoubtedly the best choice after reading all the good reviews. Jeff’s condo is at the best location in building C. Right at the middle of the complex. Away from the cruise ship tourists, if there were any. August being the low season, there weren’t that many ships docking that week. On one day there was supposed to be 3 ships, so we avoided the crowd by going to BVI that day. The condo had such a stunning view, it was such a pleasure to have breakfast at the balcony every morning. The kitchen is well equipped. Fridge has ice maker. There are a blender and even George Foreman. There are plenty of beach and bath towels. The resort is less than 5 mins drive to Redhook. My husband walked there one day, it only took him 20 mins. Being so close to Redhook was a big plus, we did not have to get up too, too early even when we took the earliest car barge to St. John. Banana Cabana is right next to building C. It serves breakfast starting at 7 am, lunch, then closes at 5pm. Burgers were decent $11, 6 pieces chicken tender, I think it was $12. It was yummy with honey mustard. They serve a good variety of cocktails from painkillers, bushwackers, to lime and coconuts for $8. Susie took our orders and delivered the food right to your lounge chair. We also used the concierge service to book a daysail with Breakaway to go to BVI. Jody was very helpful. The marina was right behind the condo, that was where we board the Breakaway and it was so convenient. My friend’s family rented the unit next door. The balconies was conjoining. A car was included for each unit. We ended up using the coupon and upgraded to a 7 seaters Ford Flex. and paid $619 extra, that included all the taxes and insurance. It was all worth it! We subscribed internet when we got there, It was $40 for a week. Allow 2 users at a time. We went to St John twice, Trunk Bay 1 day and Watermelon Cay another day. Watermelon Cay had the best snorkeling. We saw sea turtles, reef shark and sting rays. The day sail to BVI was fabulous. They honor the 10% off even we did not book online. Overall we had such a great vacation at Sapphire Beach resort. We sure will go back one day. Thank you Jeff for promptly answering all our questions. Debbie at the Budget car rental is the best.

    Our stay at Paradise at the Beach 3 was wonderful. It was quiet, beautiful, and everything we wanted in a honeymoon. We had a blast traveling into Red Hook and doing frozen drinks at Duffy’s. We loved the beach out front and snorkeling with the beautiful fish and sea turtles. And we couldn’t have had more fun sailing from island to island with Tribal Charters. We would definitely stay again with Paradise at the Beach. They made everything very easy and their including of a rental car was generous and made the trip very fun! St. Thomas was everything we hoped and we hope to visit and do more island hopping soon!

    Hi Jeff & Kelli, our vacation in St.Thomas totally exceeded our expectations. The condo had all the conveniences of home and was right on the beach. The location was so close to the Marina, Red Hook and the ferry to St.John. This was a vacation our family will always remember. Thanks so much.

    Rented units 1 & 2 for 8 days in July… BEST vacation ever!! Visited lots of islands, did many excursions, and the weather was perfect. Have to say that if we ever get a chance to go back we will be sure that there is no construction going on…that was a definite downer! Low season was perfectly fine in every other aspect. Jeff was the best to work with…always available and very helpful in what to take with us and not worry about! Units were very well equipped and clean. We really enjoyed the time in the islands. Sure hope we get a chance to return soon.

    Jeff and Kelli,

    Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation last week. We absolutely loved staying at your condo. We really appreciated the extra towels, beach towels, beach toys and the coolers that you made available. Having them already in the condo was great. We will definitely call you again when our travels bring us to St. Thomas!!

  86. Don and Marilyn Kennelly

    We both thought everything was great and if we ever come back to the USVI we will contact you for accommodations. We left a bag chair there for anyones use if needed and a few other items on top of the safe. You seem to have thought of everything anyone could possibly need for a stay so that made things very comfortable all the way around. We would definitely recommend your place to anyone traveling down there without a moments hesitation. Again, thanks for everything…..

  87. Anonymous

    Our stay at Paradise on the Beach was overall really good. We had a nice condo with a balcony that was right on the water. The location on the island was very convenient, and close to the ferry, restaurants, etc.

    Overall, I would recommend this place.

  88. Kelly

    My daughter and I just returned from St Thomas on May 18th and had the best time. We stayed in a condo we rented from Jeff and Kelli and it could not have been better. The pictures on his website described the place perfectly. We had everything we needed for our visit. It was nice having the extra’s like beach towels and additional bath towels handy. 2 women can go through a lot of towels. We were in building C and in my opinion, building C is the best location on Sapphire. The view was absolutely perfect. I want to thank Jeff and Kelli for providing such a nice place to stay for our 1st trip to St Thomas. I will definitely come back and will contact Jeff for future accommodations.

    We had a wonderful time, we would definitely return to paradise at the beach. this was our second time at paradise at the beach, but have been to St. Thomas about seven or eight times over the years. this location definitely has one of the nicest beaches.we tried a new restaurant this trip the old stone farm house, pricey but the food and decor was worth it.we were there the week of the carnival celebration, very hard to find parking downtown if you wanted to do some shopping, so we shopped at Havensight and yacht haven.

    Thanks for making our stay at the condo so comfortable, can’t think of anything more you’d need .

    Thanks again.

  90. Rachel scheich

    I love paradise on the beach and would definitely return to stay there the only suggestion that I would have when checking in is not to refer to it as paradise on the beach yet follow the signs for the Sapphire Bay resort I felt the only thing I would do differently is not leave our condo and swim right there in Sapphire Bay because my kids love it so much.

    Great week in St Thomas; Paradise at the Beach was wonderful. Location was perfect w/ great views of several nearby Islands and Sapphire Beach is one of the best beaches on the Island. We really appreciated all of the nice extra touches in the condo–the fresh flowers, rum, games, movies, books, and ample kitchenware and towels. We enjoyed being close to Red Hook and the many good places to eat and drink (love those Bushwhackers), as well as the ferry to St John. Rental car allowed us great freedom to tour St Thomas and St John. Not sure when we will be back, but will definitely try to stay with you again. Thanks.

    What a fantastic place. If we would have spent a week prior to our vacation looking for the perfect condo this would be the one. Not sure how we got so lucky in findng such a great location with never being on the island before but the view was fantastic, the owners are wonderful people and the island is beyond words. The snorkling was incredible right our front of the condo. We arrived late to the condo so it was dark when we arrived, my ten year old woke up at 0630 and woke me up to say Dad you have to wake up and look outside and see how beautiful it is. That let us know right away we picked the right spot. You cannot go wrong with this spot. I could keep going on and on about how much we did and how much fun we had.

    My family visited St. Thomas for vacation, but also to attend my sister’s wedding. My children are 4 and 7. Our time in St. Thomas was absolutely magical, and I whole-heartedly believe that part of the magic was due to where we stayed. I need to say that Jeff was amazing. He ALWAYS got back to me in less than 24 hours when I had any questions, no matter how silly! Everything he advertises and says is completely accurate. The condo was very clean and updated. There were plenty of towels and the kitchen was stocked well. The patio was amazing and made the whole place feel so big! We had lots of other family who rented other condos on the same property, and theirs all paled in comparison to Jeff’s…other than the one next door to us :) (also Jeff’s). The location of the complex was fantastic, close to Red Hook and also a lot of amazing beaches. The rental car was a huge plus and the people at budget were SO kind and helpful. It is truly wonderful to go somewhere that many people only see in their dreams and to be able to completely relax and feel at home! We all shed a tear when we left! We hope to make it back again!

    We had a great time. 11 days on Sapphire Beach was amazing. We snorkeled many times right there and watched rays over the grasses and watched fish and coral. Everyday, we sat under the trees in shade so we could avoid sunburn yet enjoy the beach in all its glory. We hope to go again. We also spent 6 days on St John and the two together made for a wonderful
    way to celebrate turing 60!

    This was a wonderful vacation. Jeff was so easy to work with. Unit Three is awesome. The waves crash in on the rocks. Just perfect. Clean had everything we needed. We will rent again.

    “Arrived at Sapphire Beach Resort, Unit Two….Paradise!! The unit is totally updated in every way, beautifully decorated and the view from the balcony-amazing!

    There are beach towels, many extra bath towels, washcloths (a big plus in my book)! Some beach toys, a cooler, everything you need for a day on the beach. There are even some family games and a few dvd’s, a book collection and even a docking station for your i-pod to enjoy your own music.

    It was very convenient to have the rental car, although a little tricky with the driving on the left. Really nice to be close to Red Hook for restaurants, the Ferry and the supermarket. There was a new food truck at the top of the hill (entrance to Saphhire) called “”Off the Grid””. A very nice young couple (from Las Vegas) had just opened it while we were there. THe food was very good. Kobe style grilled sausage (YUM) and BBQ Pork (YUM) and 2 sides along with beer, wine spritzers, water and soda’s. We chartered a boat to tour the BVI one day to visit The Baths and it is a must do for anyone!! If you’ve come to St. THomas you need to do The Baths. Also chartered a sailboat one day with 2 other couples to snorkel around St. Johns and another uninhabited island, included lunch and all our drinks aboard The Simplicity with Josh and Ray – would highly recommend them.

    It was an amazing vacation at an amazing place!!

    If you are thinking of spending a week away from everything that makes you crazy in life, this is the place to go. Weather you rent unit one,two,or three each will give all the comforts that you are looking for. We rented unit three to celebrate or 20th anniversary. It was wonderful. My wife and I hve been coming down to the island every other year for the past 20 years.We have stayed at Sapphire at least 8 times over the span of our years together. Over the past years Sapphire has changed due to management of the property.It is on the way back thanks to the homeowners association and the changes that they have made to improve the property.

    The beach is why people come to Sapphire and it is truly unbelievable as it has the best snorkeling that you will ever experience.If you have never snorkeled before you can go to the dive shop and they will help with anything you would need to make your day enjoyable. We rented kayaks and went out to Shark island, the views from out there looking from the ocean back to the shore is something to see.

    Whether you want to walk the shore or around the marina you will see things that will amaze you. There is nothing like watching the sun go down sitting in the water with a drink in your hand and someone you care about next to you.

    Utilize the car that you are given as there is so much to experience. Yes, driving on the left is kinda weird at first but you’ll get used to it very quickly. Do not leave the island without going on the New Horizons located in the marina they are one of the best tour boat companies on the island.From beginning to the end of the tour they will make you day enjoyable.

    We will come back and rent from Jeff again as his attention to detail is the best that I have seen. Remember, once you come back from this vacation with one of Jeff’s units no matter what life throws at you, close your eyes and you will remember this vacation. Since our October rental I can still see the sunset and sunrise from the balcony.

    Enjoy your stay I know that you will have a great time.

    We stayed the first week of January 2013. Everything was as described by Jeff. We had a wonderful time there was much to do ie fishing etc. Restaurants were great, we would return.

    We chose Jeff and Kelly’s condos on Sapphire Beach to fulfill a bucket list for an ill friend. We made the right choice by renting from Jeff and Kelly for a week in January. Having visited St Thomas many times years ago, we knew we would get great views and snorkeling at Sapphire Beach. What a pleasure to see that Paradise at the Beach condos are just perfect for relaxing and enjoying such beautiful scenery! The condos are very comfortable and all amenities are right there. We felt right at home from the second we entered the door. The pool is lots of fun and was never crowded; the snorkeling right at Sapphire includes turtles, rays and lots of fish. Jeff and Kelly provide everything needed for a great vacation. There is no need to travel at all, but we enjoyed visiting Red Hook and taking the ferry to St John to play and shop. We really enjoyed the little cafe up on the hill by the pool in the old Sapphire Condos. The new manager/chef/bartender has created some great menu items. When we got back to Chicago, we booked again immediately with Paradise at the Beach. My only qualm about expressing what a great places Jeff and Kelly have, is that we might not be able to book when we want!

    An awesome place to stay! We have a glowing report about our week long stay in these condos. Jeff and Kelly have provided everything and anything to make the vacation a dream. The decorating and updated facilities are superb, the view from the balcony is magificent, and the entire ambience of these two condos is unreal! We celebrated our 60th wedding anniversay at Sapphire Beach, and we cannot say enough about the beauty, tranquility, and the activities. Everything is right on the premises for a funfilled, action packed, supreme vacation. We will be back to once again have the thrill of living in Jeff’s two condos. Everything was as listed on the internet site, and even better!

    This year we decided to take the kids to St. Thomas for Christmas. My husband and I visited the Island back in June for a few days and had stayed elsewhere. While there, we took the time to visit different beaches, and areas of the island so that we would know where to stay when we returned. Let me start by saying that Sapphire beach not only offers the best snorkeling on the island, but it also boasts an amazing long white sandy beach. Once we decided on the area, we began our searched for a condo. Jeff and Kelli made the decision easy; they were so accommodating, very easy to work with and were always immediately available for questions. Upon arrival, we were not disappointed. The condo is exactly as described, with and an amazing view? and the kids LOVED the double level pool (which was never crowded). It has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The condo is truly a 1-2 minute drive from Red Hook where you can find plenty of restaurants, shopping or catch the ferry to St. John. If you get the chance to visit Coki beach, you will find some amazing snorkeling there also. We heard that there were some issues with crime at that beach but didn’t have any problems either time we went, and were comfortable taking our kids. We will be definitely plan on going back, and when we do, we will definitely choose one of your wonderful condos!

    “We rented all 3 condos for a week early Dec. We had read many reiews so were not surprised by anything. All condos were well stocked with everything we need to enjoy our stay. Each one decorated different, all updated fairly recently. As a whole the resort is in need of some updating, but that did not affect our comfort at all. The beach and pool are awesome and well maintained, the views breathtaking. The

    little cabana was open by 7:30 am serving great breakfast sandwiches and frosty drinks all day(this was located next to the double unit-how handy)the cabana closed early but there is a lounge at sapphire village(quick walk) which has good food, drinks and fun entertainment some evenings. Snorkling right in front of the condo was great, and its easy to book boating excursions at the marina. We were able to wash our clothes. Outings to Red Hook were a blast and the market just beyond Red Hook was reasonable. Target was also justa few miles in the other direction.

    Jeff and Kelli are easy to get ahold of and they really have thought of everything for a great time. We cook in our condos most days and used the awesome blenders a lot.

    Its not a Marriot but is a great relaxing beautiful spot. The location is perfect.”

    We stayed 11/10/12 to 11/17/12. Very nice accommodations. Even had cooler for the beach. Great snorkeling, finally saw sea turtles along with schools of fish, dog bones helped with that. We had the end unit which allowed more area for friends. Close to Red Hook. Dive shop personel were very nice. Fun was had by all. We will be back. Jeff even tried to help when another friend who had problems getting into another condo upon arrival. He helped with all other questions and recommendations were very helpful. Beautiful views too!

    “As a visitor to Sapphire Beach for the last 30+ years since age 9, I hold a deep affinity for this special and beautiful piece of St. Thomas. As a repeat customer of Paradise at the Beach, I can honestly say that their accomodations are top notch. They have included everything possible to make the stay there as care-free and enjoyable as possible. From the early planning stages to dealing with an unexoected schedule change, every aspect of our trip was flawless. Jeff and Kelli’s foresight, accomodations and consideration is unparalleled. We will most definitly be visiting Paradise at the Beach again and again, and I’ve made it a point to recommend them to my closest and most discerning friends. Thank you for yet another outstanding visit to paradise!!

    Hi Jeff, we have stayed with you a few times now, & each trip has been wonderful! however, this was probably the most memorable!As you know we had to cancel our trip in June due to my mothers health, but were hopeful that things would improve & we rescheduled our trip to Paradise at the beach (unit 1) for 10 days in August. it was amazing!!! we were able to go & enjoy every minute of it! It was perfect! We are already planning late spring trip for next year! We found a new spot in Red Hook called Sweetie Pies! Augustine, the owner (TINI) has great breakfast wraps, cinnamon rolls, & desserts to die for! Jeff, I can never thank you enough for your kindness & understanding, when we had to cancel! there is NO other place in St. Thomas we would rather be than Paradise at the Beach!!! My Mom is in a nursing home now, but steadily improving, Thank God! We will be returning next yr. thank you again for sharing your home away from home with us! Paradise at the Beach ROCKS!!!

    I want to leave a positve comment in this guestbook. I took my partner and three children ages 16,18, and 22 to Saphire Beach for a week. It was our best family vacation ever. The condo was just the right size and the water was only steps away. We spent our days swimming with turtles, fish, and colorful creatures. This was our first stay at this condo and it will NOT be our last. We plan to make this our anual vacation spot.


  107. Peter and Kathy Berner

    This was our first, and definitely not our last, Paradise at the Beach experience.Jeff was terrific to work with; a most accomodating and helpful host. While parts of the property are looking a little tired (not a big deal- just cosmetic stuff!), Jeff and Kelli’s place was really well maintained and in great shape. The unit we stayed in, D203, had everything we could have needed. The view from this unit is sensational. Just be aware that the pool is close, and I imaginge noisy when crowded. Because we were there in hurricane season (highly recommended, by the way), there were very few people and we had the beach mostly to ourselves. (Weather was sensational with one day dedicated to Hurrican Issac which passed to the south, but was a blast to experience). All of the restuarants and stores were open and accessible. Red Hook is really nice “beachie” sort of town, sufficiently away from the tourist/cruise ship traffic of Ch.Am. We wanted a place to relax and get away: no pressure, no inconvenience, no disappointment. This place has it! We will be back.

    Just returned from Paradise at the Beach. Our most difficult part of our stay was going home. The condo was fully furnished with all the comforts of home and very clean. We had the best snorkeling at sapphire beach of all the beaches on St. Thomas. It was not crowded and the grounds were kept up well. The locals were great at giving suggestions and directions. The cabanna bar on site was wonderful and had great drinks and service to the beach. We spent our nights out in redhook at the local bars and restaurants and our days touring the islands different beaches however sapphire was by far the best. We also took the car to St Johns and visited cinnamon bay, trunk bay and the ruins as well as did a horse back ride on coral bay. Overall we had a great stay without any issues to speak of. I would stay here again and plan to do so when we get our wedding planned out. We were introduced to Jacky at Ajanta and we were very pleased with his knowledge and service he provided. We also got engaged down at Mim’s waterfront and had an awesome waitress get it all recorded for us. Outstanding! Overall we put on 333 miles on our car spent 8 days and seen and did a lot. Thanks for the great times and we look forward to doing it again soon.

    What a great get away for families!! The unit we stay in was clean and nice. The location of development was perfect, just about a mile away from Red Hook, which had just about everything you need. The bay at the resort was one of the best on the island. I would defiantly recommend this.

    We just returned from a week at Jeff’s condo – what a great place to experience the Virgin Islands. We kept commenting that we felt we had the best spot on the island. After talking with some locals, they too confirmed that Sapphire Beach was superior. Great snorkeling right off the shore. I swam with turtles, and saw a host of colorful fish and amazing coral. We went to St. John’s several days and enjoyed it. The condo is perfectly located on the beach. We ate meals on the patio as the day began and ended, a cool breeze making it perfectly pleasant. We are telling our friends about Jeff and the condo, and are making plans to return. Jeff was a great host, and everything he told us in advance about the condo and the island was spot on! He made our whole experience seemless and smooth. You can trust Jeff and you will have your expectations exceeded by his condo and Sapphire Beach!

    We just returned from Paradise on the Beach, amazing is the word. Excellent location, near Red Hook and the Marina (where you can buy fish right off the fishing boats, reasonable!). Jeff and Kelli where great to work with and the condo was everything that was represented. For those of you reading mixed reviews, yes, some of the areas of the resort are tired. The pool area we found to be clean and security, ensuring use by registered guests, excellent (and friendly). The entrance is clean, secure and welcoming. The area that we found to be the least desirable was the the actual common area to the resort itself, where the budget rent a car area was. The condo was well equipped including ample beach towels, great ice maker, coolers for picnics and all the cooking/utensils you need. Please note, if you wish to do some cooking in the unit, you may consider bringing some of your favorite spices and some of the basics as things tend to be expensive here. Obtaining pool floaties, snorkel gear and lounge chairs was a breeze! And, the dive shop staff was very helpful and friendly. We will certainly go back!! From talking with others, the condo unit was a great bargin, particularly including the rental car for the week! Thanks Jeff, for being professional and responsive. We will return.


  114. Ruthann

    We had a great time in St. Thomas at Paradise at the Beach! We traveled to other beaches and even St. John but the beach at the condo was the most colorful and quiet. Jeff was very accommodating to any question or need we had, and the locals all spoke english which was very helpful. We hope to go back again.

    We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary there! We brought our three college-bound children. We enjoyed showing them the island and all of our old friends. We would return. We enjoyed the view and accessibility to pool and beach was great. We enjoyed the snorkeling, St. John beaches, swimming with the turtles at Sapphire Beach! Also, enjoyed dinner at Greenhouse, breakfast at Barefoot Buddha, and the view from the condo!

    “What can I say, that was absolutely wonderful. Your condos are most certainly the cleanest upscale units I?ve had the pleasure of staying at. Having the car included and ready for me at the airport had to of been the most convenient option you provided with such an affordable price. As for the beach, I can say for a fact that it has the best view of all the beaches on St. Thomas. I can?t thank you enough and am looking forward to staying at your place next year.

    “Thanks, Jeff and Kelli, for a wonderful vacation in Unit #2! This was our 2nd trip to Sapphire Beach, but our 1st time renting from an owner. The condo was clean, comfortable, in good repair, and stocked with everything we needed (even extension cords, flashlight, scissors, and scotch tape!!) We loved the programable electronic lock on the entry door…no keys to worry about and a number we could remember…nice touch!! The view from the balcony is stunning…we spent a lot of time out there,(but come prepared with insect repellent for the no-see-ums)a plus would be a table and chairs so we could have enjoyed our meals out there!! The condo is right on the beach, only steps away from the water, the pool only one building away, and the marina right behind the building across the parking lot. Parasailing, wave runner rentals, and day sails, are all available there. We totally recommend the day-long snorkeling cruise on the “”New Horizon””…we’ve sailed with them twice now, and the second time was just as awesome as the first! Sapphire Beach is a perfect location, everything is convenient, and once you purchase your groceries, you really don’t have to leave the complex unless you want to!! The included rental car is handy for exploring the island. Sapphire Beach is the best beach on St. Thomas, and if you enjoy snorkeling, a reef is right there so you can go every day! Jeff was great to work with, and he provided all the info about the island, shopping, and dining that you could possibly need! Thanks again, Jeff and Kelli, we’ll contact you for our next trip to the island! ~Judy Newberry

    We spent a wonderful week of sun, sand and sea at Paradise at the Beach on Sapphire Bay resort. Our condo was beautiful, clean and well outfitted with everything we needed for our stay. You can’t find a better, more relaxing place to stay. The beach was one of the best we have ever been on and to think that it was right outside our condo. From the white sugary sand to the excellent reef for snorkeling, it had it all. The condo owner made sure we had plenty of information from places to visit to restaurants. All was extremely helpful for our first visit to St. Thomas. We have already recommended this place to others.

    are tours right out of the resort as well.

    Working with Jeff and Kelli was very pleasant. Also, I

    We really enjoyed our stay at Paradise at the Beach #3. It’s a great condo with a fabulous view and it had all the amenities we enjoy. Including a small Kitchen area with Refrigerator and Microwave. Ocean view balcony, and a very comfortable King Size Bed and nice walk in shower and double sink vanity in the Bathroom. Plus a nice size safe to keep all your valuables even big enough for a laptop. The resort is gated and very safe and secure. Sapphire Beach is very beautiful beach to stay on. It’s also less than a mile from Red Hook, a cute little town with lots of great restaurants and little shops. You can catch a ferry from Red Hook to the other islands. The concierge set us up for a day tour to St. John and a sunset dinner cruise and both were well worth it. The rental car was also plus, although I think if I had it to do again I would take a cab the day we fly in and pick up the car the next day. We flew in when it was getting dark and driving on the left side of the road was a little stressful at first, but you get used to it. It was nice to be able to drive to and check out some of other beaches and the downtown shopping areas. All in all Paradise at the Beach is a beautiful place clean and comfortable,that I would highly recommend and our only complaint is that the week went to fast.

    We stayed in Jeff’s unit 2 the last week of Oct/first week of Nov 2011. Had a great time and really enjoyed the condo. Everything was as advertised and made our 10 day stay wonderful and relaxing. The rental car worked out well and helped us get around on St. Thomas. Want to come back for 2 full weeks next year. Thanks for helping us get back into the unit after we got locked out one day at the pool, Jeff! Really enjoyed the beach, pool and snorkeling. Restaurants in Red Hook had great food and service. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks Jeff!

  127. Heidi

    Thanks. We really enjoyed ourselves. The condos were very nice and well kept. We lost electricity the first night we were there. The whole island went out and subsequently, my in-laws flight was delayed out of Miami because of no runway lights at the airport. We did find a couple flashlights and candles though, so all was good. Actually, my 10 year old daughter and I enjoyed sitting on the deck with only the light of the moon and every single star in the sky to look at. It was mezmorizing. The lights came back on about 11pm or so, just as my in-laws flight arrived. The rest of the trip went without a hitch. The weather was perfect. It rained maybe 5 minutes a couple of days but other than that 85 and sunny. We shopped at the Plaza Extra one day but found the little grocery store in Red Hook to be much more friendly and the prices not too much more (for what we were purchasing anyway). So, if we plan another trip, we will definitely contact you for availability first. My husband and I decided we liked doing the condo thing more than the all-inclusive. Yes, we had to cook for ourselves, etc but we could do it at our own time and pace. The British? couple across the way were very friendly. They waved hello every morning as we drank our coffee on the deck and we ran into them on the beach. We rode the Safari to Red Hook, Plaza Extra, Charlotte, etc. That was super easy and so much cheaper than a taxi. That walk up the hill though, whew. My father in-law and kids enjoyed the snorkeling. I enjoyed just sitting on the beach and doing nothing but reading and watching my family enjoy themselves. I would have liked to have done laundry one day but didn’t realize I needed certain tokens for the machines and the office was closed. We made it work without doing laundry. We did a lot of cooking together and eating together across the two condos. I hope we got all the right amounts of dishes, etc in the correct condos. Again, if we plan a trip in the future, we will contact you first. Thanks so much!


    We stayed in C201 & C202 units during December 2011. We could not have been happier! The view from the balcony is stunning! The snorkeling was incredible! We saw sea turtles every time we went out, not to mention spotted eagle rays, squid, conch and an abundant of beautiful fish! The location is very convenient with Red Hook only a two minute drive. The car ferry is less than a minute from the resort, which we took advantage of and took a couple day trips to St. John (a must do!). We spent one day driving around St. Thomas and visiting several other beaches and realized quickly that we were already on the best beach at Sapphire! Jeff is a pleasure to deal, very informative and accommodating. We had a few questions during our stay and Jeff was available to us via phone and text. We look forward to our next trip to the USVI and will definitely stay here again!

    places on the island. sometimes the pictures are

    not exactly what we find when we get there.

    These two condos were exactly what was

    depicted. We love having a great kitchen. It had

    what we needs to fix some great meals and have

    them on the wonderful deck. What a view. Sure

    would like to wake up to that every day. Jeff and

    Kelli made everything very easy to enjoy.

    Everything was as they said it would be. That is

    so wonderful. It just makes the vacation so much

    We just returned from the best nine day vacation ever taken. Loved Condo # 1, the view was fantastic and we apperciated Jeff and Kelli’s hard work in making everything so comfortable for us. We loved being able to have dinner on another island only a 15 min. boat ride away. The snorkle experience was the best. We were able to go as often as we liked and never had to leave our own beach. This vacation was the most stress free adventure. There was no check-in or out…no one bothered us…we were in our own world. Thank you for sharing your condo…until our next trip! ~Peg & Eric

    I can’t say enough about this place. It was clean, fully furnished, comfortable and most of all the view was spectacular. Since we have never stayed so close to the water, we were not prepared for the NO-SEE UMMMS. They ate us up. Other than that no complaints whatsoever. Jeff was great to work with. I would definitely rent this untit again, even with 4 adults, I never felt cramped.

    Our 2 weeks vacation was great and the condo unit 3 was perfect for us (2 adults, 3 and 5 years old children). Our vacation was too short ! We snorkeled a lot to the reefs. We saw squids, parrots, fish, turtles, an octopus and other kind of fish. We liked Sapphire Beach because, the trees are near the beach (shade for our children), we can snorkel both side of the bay and the waves are gentle. We loved St-John Island, we went to it twice. The condo is near the ferry to St-John Island. This unit respond to all our needs.

    Dear Jeff and Kelli, Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at Paradise at the Beach…Unit 2. The condo was perfect, totally decked out with everything we wanted or needed for a great time. The location, right on Sapphire Beach was awesome. The pool was large and multi tiered. We snorkeled, kayaked and swam with 6 or 7 amazing, huge, key lime green turtles every day. While snorkeling we were surrounded many times by hundreds of large and small silver and black fish. What a treat ! The info packet and rental car you provided made getting around so easy. We found the grocery stores, K Mart, the ferry to St. John and St. Croix with no problem. The condo’s proximity to Red Hook made eating out, night life and gift shopping easy. Needless to say we plan to return again and again. Can’t wait ! ~Thanks again, Jean and Craig

    “Dear Jeff

    We absolutely enjoyed our St.Thomas vacation. Everything was as described and more! The beach is beautiful; the pool was great;having a car was wonderful and allowed us to explore so much more of St. Thomas and St. John. I especially appreciate your willingness to answer all of my questions. Leon and I really appreciated meeting you! We are telling all our friends and family about our vacation and highly recommending your place. We will strongly consider coming back, or exploring your other VI rentals in the future.”

    “Dear Jeff and Kelli, We had a wonderful, relaxing

    trip to St. Thomas last week. Your beautiful condo

    #3 was exactly what we were looking for! We

    enjoyed being beach/pool ‘bums’ and snorkeled to

    our heart’s content. The beautiful coral teaming

    with fish was just a few steps off the beach! On

    future trips we will check your availability first!

    Loved easy access to pool and beach!”

    “Condo was very clean upon arrival, as well as efficiently stocked and set up for a family’s needs. The newly remodeled condo was a pleasure to stay in and we were very comfortable. No surprises from your website descriptions, which was appreciated. We would absolutely return. We traveled the island by car and visited many beaches. The gated community of Sapphire Beach and Sapphire Beach, along with the condo view was terrific. Enjoyed most about the island: Probably Sapphire Beach, Megan’s Bay, and Duffy’s for Happy Hour!


    We had a wonderful time. You definitely were a pleasure to deal with. The condo was fabulous and we would recommend it to others without hesitation!”


  138. Wittkopf

    We had a wonderful time at your place. You do a great job with it. We would like to return. We enjoyed the day trip to St. John, snorkeling at Salt Pond, and eating at Skinny Legs.


  139. Kelli

    Jeff and Kelli~Thank you so much for helping us plan an amazing family vacation! Your condo was simply beautiful. The location could not have been better. The condo was very updated and clean. It was well-stocked with items I wouldn’t have even thought about adding. Jeff was always available to answer any questions I had over the phone. Kelli was prompt in getting our package mailed to us before our trip. I really couldn’t be happier! We will most definitely return to this condo as soon as we can. Thank you for everything!

  141. EKX

    We had an excellent time and loved the condo and location. Became home away from home. Everything we needed was there. We would absolutely return. Enjoyed most about the island: Sapphire Beach and availability to lounges and shade, easy access to water and great snorkeling. We spent an additional week on St. John at Jasmine . . . you win hands down! Thank you. We were extremely comfortable at your condo. It was fully equipped. Appreciated the Playmate cooler and Igloo ice, as well as the small dust pan and hand broom, easy to do quick clean around condo. We will definitely return and recommend Paradise at the Beach.


  142. Allen

    Our stay at Paradise at the Beach was awesome. Beautiful condo and view. Loved having both units. The ladies making drinks are awesome. Yes, we will return. For sure. Enjoyed most about the island: Sapphire Beach and Soggy Dollar Beach in the BVIs. We plan on returning next year. The girls want to move there. :)


  143. Eric Mortimer

    “Kelli and Jeff,

    My wife and I LOVED your condo in building D; Loved the islands, and spent a wonderful week there. The beach and views were beautiful (EXACTLY as your website described), literally everyone we came in contact with on the islands was friendly. Despite reading travel blogs and reports whining about poor service, bad taxi drivers, etc. ? we saw none of that. Your printed materials were quite helpful and your condo thoughtfully VERY well stocked with towels, beach toys, etc.

    Your Sapphire Beach location was also ideal. Many charter boats/boat tours left from the marina just steps outside your condo in Building D. We used “”Breakaway/New Horizons”” for 2 different trips and loved both. Hillary is great! Red Hook was a 3 minute safari bus/taxi trip away and we had great times there, also.

    We?ll try your condos for availability first when we revisit Sapphire Beach.

    We literally could not have been happier (unless it was free)!

    We most enjoyed simply the beautiful scenery and relaxed atmosphere.

    Your condo exceeded my expectations! Very well stocked kitchen and bath linens. We used the ice cooler daily. My two-year old especially loved Dora Candyland! Condo was very clean. Your blender was great for making drinks. LOVED having rental car! We would absolutely return! You were always great to answer any questions and offer advice. A breeze to work with. Enjoyed most about the island: Hopping in the car to explore with my family. I LOVED seeing the island through my daughter’s eyes this time around! Thank you guys so much! We had the time of our lives and can’t wait to return.


  145. Socobasin

    We had a wonderful time. We did a lot of snorkeling, swimming, and sun-tanning. Definitely would stay at condo again! Sapphire Beach was a quiet beach and very clean area. Thank you for your kindness.


  146. Ferrara

    We absolutely loved our stay at Paradise at the Beach. It was beautiful and very well maintained. We would return! I’ve already been recommending it to friends and family. We loved the exclusivity, very quiet and private. The scuba and snorkeling conditions were also incredible. Thank you for opening your home to us and being so wonderful to work with. We appreciated you friendly and informative attitude toward all of our questions. We will definitely be back in the future!

    Very nice condo; Lovely beach; We enjoyed having a vehicle, but it was easy to get around using public transit. Condo was perfect! Great location and really comfortable. The satellite TV was a plus. Enjoyed most about the island: Sapphire Beach. We went to St. Johns and to Water Island. Frenchtown was fun; shopping is great and we loved the marinas.


  149. Bui

    Our stay at Paradise at the Beach was just perfect. Everything we needed for our family vacation. We can’t wait to be back. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us. Enjoyed the most about the island: beaches, snorkeling, and diving.


  150. Stell

    Wow! You have a lovely condo. THANK YOU for letting us enjoy it! Super CLEAN (& bug-free!) with all the conveniences from home. We loved the George Foreman Grill and used it every night. Food Center grocery store had everything we needed. The staff at the onsite Dive-In Beach Hut were very pleasant and accommodating. Jeff was a pleasure to do business with. Very thorough and answered all questions promptly. We will return. Great accommodations. We loved your condo! The Sapphire Beach coral reef was AMAZING and swimming with the sea turtles was a such a peaceful experience. The beach was CLEAN, QUIET, and a lovely walk from end to end. Enjoyed most about the island: Sapphire Beach (quiet), tide pools, convenience of marina and activities, amazing pool, swimming with sea turtles, floating in crystal clear waters at sunset (so peaceful!) The rental car was a great bonus! Thank you! The A/C worked excellent! The fresh flowers were a nice touch! Clean and fresh condo. Well-kept! The description and photos online matched exactly. Even better than expected! :) All-in-all, a wonderful stay and will return again! A+++

  152. Richards

    Our stay at Paradise at the Beach was wonderful!!! Your condo is beautiful. Loved the closeness to Red Hook! Loved the two units adjoining. Rental car on sight was convenient when we exchanged our car and it was without issues. We would definitely return. We loved it! We hope we can bring the rest of our family! We loved driving on the left side – it was fun! Along with the crazy roads! The water is indescribable – so relaxing! We had a fabulous time. Took advantage of the excursions from the Sapphire Beach Marina and Red Hook Marina. We chartered “Custom Charters” for a full day British Virgin Islands excursion and Captain Dan was exception!!! My dream come true! Best trip ever! Waited 15 years for this – well worth the wait!!!!


  153. Lynn

    Loved your condo and resort. One of the best of both beach and reef for snorkeling. Also, the trees which gives you a break from the sun. We would return; we loved the location of the condo on the island and enjoyed trips to the other islands. Also, enjoyed snorkeling and close proximity to Red Hook and boat harbor, including ferry to St. John. We stayed at Crystal Cove many years ago. We much prefer yours. Thank you again for your hospitality. We had a great time. Restaurants/bars in Red Hook were great. Thanks for all your information prior to our arriving. It was a great help.


  154. Porter

    We had an awesome time! Glenn went diving with Dive In at Sapphire Marina and had some great underwater videos to share with the family. Found Hawks Nest Beach on St. John, which had better snorkeling than Trunk Bay on St. John and a lot less people. Caneel Bay Resort had great lunch! We’re ready to go again to Paradise at the Beach. The staff there was great! We would absolutely return. Sapphire Beach is the best location on the island in our opinion. It was a perfect 10 days in paradise! We enjoyed everything including shipping, Havensight Mall. Enjoyed “Bumpas” 4 Burgers and Senor Pizza has great salads too! Food Center Groceries is very convenient and Marina Market Deli has great desserts!


  155. Stefanee and Darrel

    Our second trip back to this condo was just as fabulous as the first time we stayed there a year and a half ago. My husband and I especially enjoy having a quiet and laid back location where there’s no hustle and bustle like the big resorts. The view from the deck is amazing, especially in the morning with a cup of coffee. I also like that the parking is super close to the condo which makes it easy to bring stuff in and out. We’ll be back for trip number three sometime soon Jeff and Kelli!

We had the corner unit and the view of Sapphire Beach was breathtaking. We loved the closeness to Red Hook where we found good restaurants and shopping. Our vacation couldn’t have been more perfect, thanks to Jeff and Kelli.

  161. Nancy & Doug Cassella

    This was truly a vacation! From the moment we opened our eyes in the morning until we closed them at night we were treated to a breathtaking view! The Trade Winds were absolutely wonderful as well! NO BUGS! No humidity either (at least compared to CT & FL!) The water colors were incredible-it was almost unreal!! The clarity made snorkleing a dream too! The condo was decorated in a very high-end mode with gorgeous wood tones & pleasing colors in the furniture. Even the ceiling fans were impressive! We were absolutely blown away with the comfort of the mattress….we finally found a place where we can go on vacation and come home feeling pampered-not feeling as though we need a vacation from our vacation!! Thank you!

  163. Dorn

    We had the best time of our lives! Got married on Sapphire Point; beautiful! Went on a couple day trips to St. John. Driving through the hills is a ton of fun. Jost Van Dyke and The Baths are awesome! We would return. Enjoyed most about the island: People, food, Magen’s Bay, Sapphire Beach (best snorkeling), Red Hook is fun, clean and people are great. Sam is awesome! Thank you for your recommendation of Cheryl and Robert for our wedding. They were both great!


  164. Melvin

    We had the most fantastic time. Your condo is beautiful and has plenty of everything you need. We loved it! Yes, we would return. For sure. Enjoyed the most about the island: the beaches and the water. It is so beautiful. Thank you for letting us rent your condo. It was a great experience.


  165. Wunsch

    Overall we had an excellent stay. The beach is terrific and very convenient. The condo itself was nice. Everything is there for daily needs. St. Thomas is beautiful and being a U.S. territory is helpful. Also, nearby Redhook is a good jumping off point to other islands. The condo was very nicely done.


  166. Chris & Maria Melvin

    We stayed at Paradise at the Beach from 3/22-3/29. The unit was perfect for us. 2 Adults and 3 small children. The unit is extremely clean, renovated and well furnished with everything you would need for a week (or more) vacation. All we had to bring was food. The beach is awesome, we had the rental car which was provided to us from Jeff via Budget,and the location of the unit is perfect. We went into Red Hook a few times, over to St John and hit a few other Beaches on St Thomas. Jeff’s location, I think is the best you can have- it is right on the beach! The water is incredible and there is a rental place right on the beach for Chairs, Floating Mats and Snorkel Gear (which are no charge to Jeff’s renters.) We had a little problem departing from St Thomas and had to stay and extra night. I called Jeff – and accommodating us the extra night was absolutely no problem at all(good thing there was an extra day in between renters.) On a side note we did hit Rain when we went to Megan’s Bay one day but that only lasted about 8 seconds and never saw another cloud. Awesome WEATHER all week. Thanks again Jeff and Kelli – we truly had an incredible family vacation in your unit!!

    The trip was planned as a graduation present for a niece who was finishing college. Being from Minnesota, my niece was most interested in warm weather while my sister and I were interested in being in an ocean front setting. After researching the beaches on St. Thomas, we chose Sapphire Beach. While there, we took a day trip to St. John’s, visited nearly all the beaches on St. Thomas, spent a day shopping, visited Coral World, snorkeled, and rode the tram up to Paradise Point. Having a car included in the condo was a huge asset. The condo itself is extremely well maintained. The pool area was great. We would definitely stay here again (perhaps sooner than later, as we got 6 inches of snow yesterday). The island is beautiful, every picture is a postcard. We really enjoyed Coral World aquarium, and Coki Beach for snorkeling. The Sapphire Beach Resort Concierge, Jody, was very knowledgeable and friendly. She suggested and planned two great trips: a sunset dinner cruise and a day trip to St. John’s. The sunset dinner cruise had great food and a great crew (Captain Jeff). Highly recommend both. The condo was well appointed with everything to meet your needs, and very clean. Absolutely stunning view from the balcony. Thanks much for your friendliness and help.


  168. Sakis

    Great view from condo, great beach, great location, clean, friendly people. We would return. Enjoyed the most about the island: It’s hard to name only one thing. So many were GREAT!!!


  169. Tongish

    Our stay at Paradise at the Beach was enjoyable and relaxing. Like being right on the beach and away from the business of Charlotte Amalie. Great access to ferries. Went to Jost Van Dyke one day. The condo worked great for our family of four. We would return; great location right on the beach. Enjoyed most about the island: the weather, the beaches, friendly people – both residents and guests. Enjoyed driving around the island.


  170. Prentiss

    Our stay at Paradise at the Beach was fabulous. Absolutely perfect. Only steps to the beach and pool and always that delightful breeze. We would return!

    Overall great stay! Great snorkeling! We would return. Enjoyed most about the island: View from balcony, snorkeling on property, friendliness of the locals. St. Thomas is beautiful!


  172. Nelson

    On a score of 1 – 10, we would rate Paradise at the Beach an 11. Everything we had hoped for and the location with the view made it even more. Being sailboat people and viewing the Rolex Cup in the living room was so great. Coming from the NW, we really enjoyed the sun. We so needed to know it was still out there. The people everywhere on the island were great, as well as the choices for food and entertainment. Again, we wanted you to know how much we did enjoy our stay. Now wish we had made it longer. Your unit was perfect. Everything we needed was right there for us. People who worked at the complex and the people staying there were all a delight. So glad we were able to deal with you and if we return, you will our 1st call. Thank you.

    “We had a wonderful time staying at Paradise at the

    Beach from 1/6/11 – 1/14/11. We were a group of

    6 staying in adjoining rooms and it was perfect.

    The beach is fantastic with great snorkeling, great

    shade trees, and friendly staff. The onsite grill,

    called Banana Cabana, was always great and

    reasonably priced. The whole setup was fantastic

    for both the grandparents we were traveling with

    along with our two 2 year olds. The pool was

    always empty and a great way for the kids to rinse

    off and play before nap time. I would recommend

    staying on Sapphire Beach every day of your trip

    unless it gets windy, in that case we found Secret

    Harbor on St. Thomas and Caneel Bay on St. Johns

    to be fantastic beaches to visit when it does get

    windy. Red Hook is great for dinner and we always

    felt comfortable there. Our only wish would have

    been for there to be access to laundry on site

    instead of in Red Hook. We would definitely

    recommend staying on Sapphire in on of Jeff’s

    units…there is a wide variety of quality down there

    in the units and his are definitely the top of the

    accessible to Red Hook & St. John.”

  185. Bill Duncan

    “My stay in St Thomas at Paradise at the Beach was outstanding. I consider Sapphire Beach as one of the most beautiful on the island. It is tranquil and quiet, and absolutely gorgeous. The complex itself is lovely. Remote enough that you have some space, and yet close enough to town, restaurants, stores, etc.

    Improvements to the Paradise at the Beach condo were really nice. All new bathroom tile fit well, and I could tell the kitchen was all new. Everything was available anyone could need, and walking into the place was like walking into your own vacation home.

    There is nothing more relaxing than hearing the ocean waves all night, other than waking up to the sight of swaying palm trees and that azure florescent water from your bed. I had 14 wonderful days there and will be returning as soon as I can.

    I would recommend Paradise at the Beach highly to anyone that wants to experience an outstanding time at a reasonable price, and have posted some pics of my time there on my web site for my own friends to hopefully realize the beauty of the island and do the same. I could not recommend it more highly.

We’ve travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean, via Royal Caribbean Cruises, but we wanted to just pick out one island and stay there for a week with our kids. Well, from the first evening, we were THRILLED! The place was very clean and well stocked with enough cookware to allow us to cook 2-3 meals a day inside the unit. (BIG savings!) The BEACH was fantastic! We’ve been to Hawaii, but I saw more sea life snorkeling right off the beach than I saw in Hawaii. Sea Turtles, Stingrays, TONS of tropical fish and even a barracuda! I snorkeled out to the little island off the point and was amazed at one of the most beautiful reefs I’ve ever seen! It’s a pretty serious swim, but if you can do it, I highly recommend it! Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The pool was awesome and a nice relaxing end to our days at the beach. There is a small market right around the bend in Red Hook, but I would recommend doing your BIG shopping trips at Pueblo’s in Charlotte Amalie. (MUCH cheaper!) Security was awesome! Very polite, friendly but always around to keep the property safe and secure. We took the ferry over to St John one day and LOVED it! Very quaint and charming and if you’re not afraid of a hike, you can walk over the foothill trail to Honeymoon Beach. Sapphire Beach was awesome, but we were the only family on Honeymoon Beach for much of the afternoon. Overall, we loved our stay in St Thomas and will definitely look forward to another stay at Paradise at the Beach someday. Thank you Jeff and Kelli! We had a great time! ~Jon and Janice Mueller

    Excellent perks were the rental car (a must have) and the included rental

    “Paradise at the Beach is appropriately named! What a beautiful, serene place

    to get away. The condo had everything we needed to make ourselves at home

    for the week. We felt safe and secure and the view couldn’t be better! We

    would absolutely return! Enjoyed most about the island: We were able to take

    advantage of so many day trips to St. John and the BVIs. When we weren’t on

    the boat, we were snorkeling at so many beautiful beaches. The turtles at

    Sapphire Beach were phenomenal! Jeff, you were friendly and helpful from the

    very first day I booked the condo. I couldn’t ask for a smoother transaction or

    better communication. I’ll tell all my friends to stay at Sapphire Beach in one

    of Jeff’s condos when visiting St. Thomas. The proximity to Red Hook and the

    ferries was perfect. Thanks Jeff! I miss it already.”

    My 2 daughters and I stayed at Paradise on the Beach March 9-16. It was a trip with my daughters that will never forget. It was fabulous. Such a perfect location and every amenity we needed. We had a great view off the balcony. Even though it was high season for tourists, we never felt that the beach was very crowded. We snorkeled, sunned, walked the beach, etc. We also took a couple of side trips to STJ and a day charter with Pirate’s Penny. The proximity to Red Hook was very nice for quick trips to town for food and drink! Thanks and we are looking forward to another trip in the next year or so. bWould definately stay here again.

    We spent two weeks in St. Thomas, from Feb 25th through March 9. The first 8 days were at Sapphire in Jeff and Kelli’s unit, and the last 5 at the Ritz Carleton. Paradise at the Beach is the way to go hands down. The beach is better, the view is better, the snorkeling is better, the access to town is better, and the Azeman’s make it easy and pleasurable to work with.They answer every question (and I had lots)and make every effort to be gracious owners. We will be back! Thank you again for the vacation of a lifetime!!!

  234. Van Note

    “We had such a great time . . . . . . the weather was perfect . . . . . . . . and your

    unit is delightful. Just what we needed . . . a “”laid back”” “”EASY IN/EASY OUT””

    place! Everything seemed effortless. It was so nice to be so close to the beach

    . . . . . . YES, the view IS outstanding, but even ore is the EASE in going back

    and forth to such a beautiful beach! No packing up and tromping over hill and

    dale to find a place at a “”beach”” which is something running over with people!

    It was quiet, beautiful, and clean. Perhaps one of the very NICEST beaches on

    St. Thomas! My grandson and daughter LOVED the snorkeling access and

    Gramma sat under the trees with a book and enjoyed it all! We also thought

    having a rental vehicle waiting for us a the airport was a great touch . . . so

    much nicer than having to mess with a cab! The beach

    loungers/floats/fins/snorkel rentals that were included were also extremely

    nice!! It was sunch fun to have that all pre-arranged also! AND the whole

    Beach Rental Crew was extremely kind and hospitable! They must love you

    two!!! Thank you so much for all the “”extras”” one does not usually find in a

    rental unit/villa. The rum was great in our lemonade . . . plenty of linens, as

    well as beach towels, was MUCH appreciated by all 3 of us! Even a pair of

    schissors!!! I did not even miss having daily maid service! (They can be such

    an “”invasion”” sometimes — I never realized that before!) and I did not miss

    having to clear out of the unit each day when they arrive — or coming back

    after a long sandy afternoon to find they had not yet appeared with clean

    towels — as so often happens in hotels in the Caribbean!! The outdoor

    restaurant was in full gear and the grilled mahi sandwiches are wonderful for

    lunch! In answer to your questions about would we return to your unit, the

    answer is an unconditional YES! We loved the easy access and felt we had the

    best beach on the island . . . . . my grandson loved the pool also . . . . . there

    was a wedding out on the point which we stared at from the pool area one

    day!! How impressive is that to a 10-year old!! So, Thank You, Thank You for

    the use of your lovely little piece of paradise. We loved it all and I have put

    your e-mail address in “”my very favorites”” for future reference! Until next

    time, I remain most sincere.”

    sunshine and beautiful sand beach. Thank you for including the chairs,

    cooler, towels, car rental, etc. in the condo.

    Jeff & Kelli,

    Thank you for a wonderful week at your condo! We had a great time with lots

    of R&R and family time. We took the car ferry to St. John one day; a value

    since it is $50 for car & its occupants. Tell people to pack their snorkel gear,

    cooler, & towels to “”beach it”” at Trunk Bay or another beach on St. John. We

    found many excellent restaurant to visit and for golfers – check out the golf

    course at Mahogany Run. We had a wonderful vacation. Thanks again for the

    use of your condo.

    “We spent a week at Paradise at the Beach during February, 2010. The condo is in the best location. Sapphire Beach is beautiful and has some of the best snorkeling of any of the beaches on the island. It is close to restaurants and shops in Red Hook and is not as crowded as the cruise port area.

    The condo itself is comfortable and has everything one would need for a week’s stay (coffee maker, pots and pans, ice cooler, beach towels, sand toys, flat screen tv, toaster oven, etc.). The condo also has a fantastic view. For a small fee ($32.00 for a week) you could also have wireless Internet in the condo. The owners of Paradise at the Beach are organized and easy to work with. I would recommend Paradise at the Beach to anyone.”

Enjoyed the most about the island: the weather, beach, and ocean were great. Red Hook was a very convenient place to have dinner. We used the beach chairs and snorkel gear every day.

The view was great and Sapphire Beach was great! We would definitely return, and the biggest reason we would return is because everything was as promised! We enjoyed the most: Being able to wake up to the beach and open windows, the ability to feel secluded, yet 10 minutes away from downtown! Also, we loved Sapphire Beach! Just being able to see the beach and the short stroll to the water! Jeff & Kelli – Thanks so much for working with us last minute! I cannot thank you enough. Everything you promised and suggested was true! That is rare today! It had been a while since we had a vacation and this could not have worked out better! Thanks for being honest and genuine! Thanks again!

We will be back. Your condo was great! We also liked the access to the other islands and loved the Megans Bay area. We also met wonderful locals at your beach that were originally from CT & Mississippi that live there now. We enjoyed meeting them. People at the condo were great and very friendly. Went to Fungi’s one night and enjoyed the laid-back, almost in the water, casual dining. Thank you for allowing us to rent from you. We definitely will return.

    Our stay was consistent with all the positive comments others submitted. Jeff was easy to work with, the accommodations were fantastic, location ideal, weather perfect, island residents extremely friendly and polite. Some of the activities we enjoyed include: snorkeling at Saphire Beach, Secret Harbor and Coki Beach; day sail on Nightwind (right from Saphire Marina and $60 coupon in Budget book); Coral World (on a day there weren’t cruise ships); drive up to Mountain Top. Although we had a lot of meals at the condo (thanks for including the cooler too) our favorite restaurants were The Green House (Charlotte Amalie) and Latitude 18 (across from Red Hook Marina – off 322)

    Amazing! We loved the condo. The view was magnificent. The condo is in great shape, very “homey” and perfect. We would come back. We enjoyed the views from the condo, being able to visit many other islands, shopping, and rum punch. We had a great time on the island. We are so glad we went here first before St. Croix, as St. Croix is much more relaxed. Thank you!

    Austin, TX

  336. Palicz

    “Our stay was short! :) Only 2 weeks! But just like we imagined from the condo till the last beach . . . My family pretty much enjoyed the 2 weeks we spent on St Thomas.

    I think we have discovered so many things there and on St John that we could almost call ourselves “”locals””.

    Your condo was nicely decorated, clean, well equipped and right on the second most beautiful (first, if you consider snorkeling as well because Magens Bay #1 had only limited reef area) beach on the island. Many things to see underwater, incredible!!!! Turtles, eel rays, morays, hundreds of different kinds of fishes.

    The extra amenities (beach chairs, snorkeling gear, float, surf etc) were very nice to have even if one is not using all of them.

    All in all in computer speak:

    WYSIWYG – What You See Is What You Get!

    Time and money well spent.

    Thanks again and if anyone has St Thomas as destination in mind I would definitely recommend your place.”

    Silverspring, MD

    Matthews, NC

  350. Lucero

    Paradise at the Beach was a wonderful property in a prime location. The condo had a WONDERFUL view and a perfect location for both beach and island accessibility. Ideal location due to being close to Red Hook for ferrys to St. John for fun (i.e. pubs, shops, etc.) and for banking needs. Having the rental car enabled us to go “native” which was a huge cost saver as it related to buying groceries, cooking, and cabs. It was fun to be able to tour ourselves to various spots on the island such as Coral World, Coki Beach, Charlotte-Amalie, etc. We would definitely stay here again given the opportunity!! You were a pleasure to work with. I would also recommend you to others traveling in the area and have bookmarked your website for future visits! Thank you!! We enjoyed the most: The beach, SCUBA diving, the proximity to both the USVI and BVI. We did a day trip to Jost Van Dyke which we’ve been wanting to do for years. St. John is close and a fun place to do a daytrip also. Thank you for the use of your property. It was reasonably priced, located in an ideal part of the island. We felt safe & secure the whole time we were there. Everything we needed was located in Red Hook or a short drive up the road.

    Parker, CO

  351. Haugland

    Our stay at Paradise at the Beach was fantastic! The unit itself was very comfortable and we enjoyed the beautiful view from the deck. The king-size bed was appreciated, along with the sofa sleeper for our 15-year old daughter, Rachel. We had all the conveniences we needed, along with the flat screen T.V. We brought some DVDs from home, and along with your collection enjoyed movies all night. We also used the CD player, having brought some music from home as well. We would love to return. We did not get to see the Baths on Virgin Gorda . . . due to the weather. Otherwise we had beautiful weather the rest of the week. What we enjoyed most about the island were the many beach opportunities. We visited 8 or 9 beaches, between ST. Thomas and St. John which was only a short ferry ride away (and had the most beautiful turquoise water and sugar white soft sand). We snorkeled practically every day, and especially enjoyed Secret Harbor for the snorkeling, on St. Thomas. We saw a turtle in Lienster Bay, which was quite a thrill. What a beautiful area for enjoying beaches and snorkeling, which happen to be on our top list of things we love to do! We really appreciated the inclusion of the car rental, although we did choose to upgrade. The flowers, rum, and little touches like paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, hand soap . . . were greatly appreciated, especially coming in and not knowing where stores are yet to purchase things. All in all . . . we had a wonderful time. Thanks for the use of your condo.

    Naperville, IL

  352. Leighton

    It is hard to believe we have been home for almost a week. We had a great time at the condo and would come back if we venture back to St. Thomas. We return well rested and are looking forward to our next Caribbean vacation! We traveled to a few beaches and found that the beach at Sapphire was great! Magen’s Bay was nice and Coki Beach was totally wild and crazy when we visited. We also visited St. John and hiked through the National Forest and loved the secluded beaches. We drove to the top of St. Thomas and took a walk around. We found a road that had huge vines and we swung on them like Tarzan and Jane! What a sight to see. Duffy’s Love Shack was a hit with Upside Down Margaritas. Iggy’s was just beautiful on a sunny day. I could go on, but I will stop there. Thanks for giving us the pleasure of renting your unit. We had a great time.

    Our stay at Paradise at the Beach was excellent! We truly loved it. The condo was so homey w/ the extra touches of granite & tile. It was breathtaking from the balcony. We were more than pleased! Better than my expectations. It completed our wedding/honeymoon. Of the 30 people there, we were the only ones who really enjoyed/liked our sleeping arrangements! The week after Christmas, 12 of our friends are returning to the island & were quite impressed w/ the condo. I do believe they are interested & would probably need all 3 condos, if they’re available. We enjoyed the most: the water & beaches. Very relaxing. Really loved Cowpet Bay actually. Hard to pinpoint one thing! Gorgeous! Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to rent from you. We will return & have high intentions of staying with you again. The entire process/PR/all communication was 100% better than all other family’s experiences. Thank you. Look forward to renting again!

We really need a break from our crazy life and this was the BEST ever! THANK YOU! WE LOVED IT!

I own two condos in the states and I know that you have put a lot of thought into your condos. It is all here. Thanks!

    Great location! Easy access to ferry & restaurants from the unit. Fantastic views from the unit. Outside is well lit at night, including the beach area. We would absolutely return! You are very organized, soup to nuts. The island was Paradise!! They have the tourist business down to a science. Everything you need is available somewhere. Jeff, thanks for a great week. We will think of you first when coming back. The car rental was a definite plus benefit. We will keep you “on file” and would feel comfortable recommending you to our friends.

    It was gorgeous there! Beautiful views, warm & sunny (mostly!), wonderful snorkeling right out of the condo! We loved being so close to the beach & Redhook was easy to get to.

    The condo was very well furnished & equipped with all necessary kitchen items & more. The bed was VERY comfortable. There were plenty of towels, etc. We were extremely pleased with Paradise at the Beach & would definitely return there. Also, having the car rental included was especially appreciative & made our stay even better & saved us some money. We have been going to St. Thomas for 30 years & truly enjoy it every time. Jeff, you also made renting the condo simple & the extra help with the car was greatly appreciated. Budget Rental was very nice. I hope that the car would be included again! The condo was very clean & comfortable. The fresh flowers on the table & rum were very welcoming! Thank you very much. We truly enjoyed our stay in Paradise at the Beach!

    “5th visit to Sapphire Beach – 1st time thru VRBO. Nicer unit at better deal. We would definitely rent here again!

    The Day Snorkle Sail on New Horizons (65′ sail boat out of S.B. Marina) is a must. Good restaurant – Gilligan’s Grill – right up the hill at Sapphire Villas.”

    Irving, Texas

  369. Walker

    The condo was excellent and clean. Went on New Horizons Day Sail and would recommend. Best meals: Agave Terrace, Off-the-Hook, & Gilligan’s Grill. Best shopping (jewelry): Imperial Jewelry in C.A. on Main. We loved the views and the all of the activities the island had to offer. Good restaurants and cheap liquor – go to KMart in Tutu or Plaza Extra, next to KMart, for liquor. We hope to come back for a 3-month stay in the near future . . .

    We had a wonderful time (rented adjoining units one & two). Very pleased with the condition/furnishings/kitchen supplies – linens sufficient (very much so), very good bed. Car coupon helpful as car rental is quite expensive. We really enjoyed the relaxation we received – slower lifestyle. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend your condo to friends and family. Thank you!

    We had a wonderful time! Great weather, beaches, & fun things to do. Enjoyed our stay very much! We enjoyed the beautiful beaches the most. I was very impressed with how you run your business. I wrote to several people to inquire about several different properties and did not nearly receive the great customer service you provided and the wonderful willingness to work with us, which made our decision easy. Thanks again for a wonderful condo!

    The location of the condo was perfection. It was one of the most beautiful and dramatic views you could hope for and steps from the sand and pool. The condo was equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed the gorgeous beaches and water. Sapphire was one of the prettiest beaches, so there was no need to drive around to all the other ones (we did a little then realized we had one of the best, steps from the door!). We appreciate all the thought you put into making sure your guests will be comfortable and enjoyable – everything was fabulous! Thanks – keep up the good work!

    The weather and temperature were consistently perfect. We watched the Rolex Regatta from the balcony on the most beautiful day of all. Trip to St. John was a pleasant adventure. Sapphire Beach was fun to explore snorkeling. The swimming and pool area in front of the condo was fun to watch. Location – location – location. We enjoyed our experience everywhere on the island. Thank you for a wonderful time from two retirees.

    “Sadly, we arrived home last night ? I wish I could say that it is good to be home, but that isn?t quite true ? no matter how hard I squint, white snow just doesn?t look as wonderful as white sand! We had a fantastic week in your island home?it was awesome! Everything was great. I must say it was really nice to have such a good selection of soft towels to use?they lasted the week very nicely. You two do a really nice job of stocking the place so it is a very comfortable ?home away from home? for your guests. We truly enjoyed it very much! The Budget car worked out great and the return process was a breeze. Once we decide on the schedule for our next trip ? probably we will do that very soon ? I will be in touch to see if it will work with your booking schedule. We truly had an amazing time and came home more relaxed than we ever have from past vacations?that speaks for itself! Thanks!
