Enjoy Delightful Tropical Decor - Cool Breezes - Soft Sand - Crystal Clear Waters

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: Come to one of the Caribbean's most beautiful beaches not even 200 steps from your front door. White sandy beach graced by seagrape trees. Beach and property all spruced up after the hurricanes. Spectacular panorama of Caribbean islands from Jost van Dyke to Tortola to St. John. Crystal clear water. Our spacious deluxe one-bedroom apartment is clean and brightly furnished in Caribbean style for island living. Beautiful tropical decor.

PARADISE DEFINED: It's an experience of beauty and relaxation you won't forget. Great snorkeling right off our beach, the home of sea turtles, coral, a countless variety and abundance of reef fish, rays and more. Take a look at the photos here and we are happy to supply additional photos.

SPACIOUS UPDATED FIRST FLOOR APARTMENT: Our first-floor apartment at Crystal Cove (also known as Sapphire Bay Condominiums West--not the Sapphire Resort) directly on Sapphire Beach is almost 1000 square feet. There is a very comfy king-size bed in the bedroom; two comfortable side-by-side twin Murphy beds in the living room. A daybed is complimentary upon request. Included are two full bathrooms, one with glass-block shower and one with tub, fully stocked with bathroom towels and beach towels too. Our kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator, small appliances, microwave, dishes, tableware and cooking utensils. Spacious dining table. Central air conditioning. Ceiling fans. Washer/dryer in the apartment. All bed linens, kitchen towels, pot holders, etc., are provided.

OTHER EQUIPMENT and SERVICES: Free wifi. TVs (cable) in the living room and bedroom and a DVD player in the living. We have a nice collection of movies complimentary upon request to our manager. For your convenience, a washer/dryer is right inside the unit. No need to use the coin-operated complex equipment.

CONVENIENT TO EVERYTHING: We are just one mile from the village of Red Hook with its shops and ferry terminal. Choose dining in or out. Many popular restaurants and a complete grocery market are nearby, within a 10-minute drive. From the Red Hook ferry terminal, you can take day excursions to St. John and the British Virgin Islands of Tortola and Virgin Gorda.

ACTIVITIES GALORE: Our beach attendant will set up your complimentary beach lounge or chair and make sure you are comfortable. There is a dive shop right next door as well as a marina for booking watersports, sport fishing, ski jets, parasailing, day trips to other islands and more.

TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS: Crystal Cove is a private, gated community with on-premise security. Parking is just outside the back door. If you don't want to rent a car, taxis are also easily called, and the local $1 safari-style bus that circles the island stops at the end of the driveway.

CONTINUOUS UPDATING: We personally live in and check on our condo four or five times a year and make sure everything is in excellent condition. We regularly replace any items that have seen better days.

FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE: Housekeeping service every three days. Our local host, Norma, is on premises or nearby every day.

OPTIONAL EXTRA SERVICES: Norma, a trusted and well-respected local resident, offers these additional services:

• Transportation from and to the airport

• Food shopping before you arrive or accompanying you to food shop during your stay

• Personal food preparation and cleanup

* Baby needs for a small fee: standard size crib, high chair, Pack ‘n’ Play

• Babysitting

NUTS & BOLTS: King bed in master. Two side-by-side twins (murphy beds) in living room. Good quality comfy mattresses on all. Daybed for a fifth person is complimentary upon request in advance. Baby crib, portable crib, high chair available for a small fee from local manager. Please request in advance. Two full bathrooms with lots of mirrors, fully stocked with towels, soap, toilet tissue, hair dryers. Plenty of room for your personal toiletries in cabinets.

A FINAL WORD: When we chat with people who have traveled to many islands, including the Hawaiian and South Pacific islands, and decided to make their life in St. Thomas, we ask them "why?" They say "we think this is the best place in the world." We agree.

We have had a decades-long love relationship with St. Thomas starting on our honeymoon oh-so-many years ago. When we were fortunate enough to buy a place in 2004, we chose a condo on the best beach on the island - Sapphire Beach at Crystal Cove. Also known as Sapphire Bay Condos West or SBCW, Crystal Cove is a low-density, idyllic beachfront condo complex, ideal for young, old and anyone in between - honeymooners, families, seniors. We wanted to share our love of this special place and special people, and that's why we chose to make it available to others. We come several times a year and make sure it is well maintained for us and you. So many of our guests agree and enjoy the sun, peaceful beach, friendly locals, outdoor activities, and relaxed lifestyle and come year after year. Nancy & Marc Giges
