This place is a great deal. We had a fantastic time at the Sapphire Village condo. The marina proved to be a great asset, offering water sports and day sails to St. John and the BVIs. The beach also places to rent kayaks, snorkel gear, and other fun stuff. The views are spectacular (we often enjoyed breakfast or dinner from the balcony). The property was clean and cute. The kitchenette proved to be very useful... toaster, microwave, fridge, all indispensible! There's no bathtub (which might be common on the islands, given the need for conserving water), but the bathroom is set up nicely with the vanity and sink outside the door for the "head" and the shower... you'll appreciate this when you have two people getting going and you don't want to spend all day taking turns in the bathroom. Also nice to have a cooler and thermos available to use, plus hangers, towels, and so on. The location is a great... close to many good attractions, sightseeing, shopping, etc. The hills going to and from the beach are kind of steep, but we were okay with it. Apparently, the beach bar closed recently (I'm not sure if it's temporary), and the other place, The Grapevine Grill, was adequete, but not spectacular. Even though it says you don't need a car, I'd highly recommend one because you won't have access to convenience stores, any choices in food, etc. That means you have to wait for taxis at the entrance to the community (more hills). Without a car, there's no running out to pick up this or that... no unexpected medicine or food needs. The construction was usually not bothersome, though it was definitely a bit dusty outside, not pretty, and every once in a while, pretty loud. The construction also made parking sparse by this building.
