Set high up on a ridge, overlooking multiple south shore bays, Sapphire Breeze is a very unique and fun destination property.

Sapphire Breeze

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental villa. Sleeps 8, 3 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

1N Estate Bethany St. John, VI 00831 Virgin Islands, U.S.

With its infinity edge pool, huge spa, large waterfall and magnificent views, this Sapphire Breeze is truly exceptional. Located via paved roads high on a ridge overlooking multiple bays, Sapphire Breeze commands a stunning panorama, but this villa is all about fun.

From the underwater window on the lower level, watch the kids swim while you relax in the shade with a nice book. Look for the star that marks the spot for Sapphire Breeze on the inlaid tile map on the pool deck, and smile at the friendly mischievous gargoyle hanging from a ceiling. The rooms are colorful at Sapphire Breeze. It's a vacation property where magical moments are the norm!


Children welcome! A Liability waiver is required for all guests at Sapphire Breeze

    a guest from Sandown, NH recommends this vacation rental

    Sapphire Breeze is perfectly situated in the hills on St John with 180 degree Ocean views over 3-4 bays. This villa has total privacy and artistic features throughout. The house is aptly named for the artistry, views and the way that it captures the ocean breeze under the covered deck. The infinity pool, complete with waterfall, blue lights and a fountain was magical. This is a well loved, well cared for one of a kind property. We will return and stay longer.

    VIVA staff was great! Very attentive and accommodating. They even went searching for lost chargers we left behind and mailed them to us. Views can't be beat. Sunset every night! Very quiet location, but close to town. My only wish is that we could walk to town (which we discovered is really not an option anywhere outside of Cruz Bay).
    We highly recommend!

    a guest from Rock Hill, SC recommends this vacation rental

    We had looked at many places to stay when planning our trip to St. John. When we saw Sapphire Breeze and all it had to offer, we knew we had found "home" for the week of our vacation. The pictures that are shown on the website are beautiful as are the rooms in the villa. When we arrived at Sapphire Breeze, we were stunned at how much more beautiful the views and the villa were than the pictures even showed. The villa delivered on everything we needed and more. We visited the British Virgin Islands,went to several of the beaches, and ate at many of the local restaurants. We were traveling with our son and daughter in law and our daughter, son-law and their 7 month old son. We had all of the comforts of home. Any questions or concerns that came up, all we had to do is call and we received the information that we needed. We will definitely be back. It was a wonderful experience.

    Sherry B from Vestal, NY recommends this vacation rental

    This was our 7th trip to St John so we have stayed at numerous villa's. Sapphire Breeze has wonderful outdoor space- the pool and pool deck along with the view. There is always a breeze so we ate all meals outside. The breeze kept the mosquitos away as well, so we were able to really enjoy being outside. It is located in an older section of St John, overlooking the Westin. The main living area/kitchen and loft bedroom are not air conditioned. We spent very little time inside, as it was just too warm. The 2 bedrooms on the main floor were air conditioned and spacious. We also used the apartment below, which was also air conditioned. The villa is definitely showing it's age- the bedding and furnishings could all use updating and replacing. The paint on the wall that the head of the bed in the apartment was up against was chipping, so again overall repairs and refreshing would benefit this villa. The owners are amazing artists with pieces of their work throughout the villa. Overall- we would rate the view/outdoor area/pool 5 star, but the inside of the villa- living area/appliances/furnishings/bedding get a 2 star. It all depends on what's important in a rental unit.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay. We agree that Sapphire can use some TLC. We will be making some improvements this summer-stay tuned! November 2016 Update: Improvements are almost complete at Sapphire Breeze!! All walls were painted, new linens and décor updated, flat screens, stainless steel appliances and new tile work done. "Sapphire" fiber optics added to pool. Kitchen cabinets redone. More to come including updated photos...

    We have been to STJ quite a few times and have always stayed on either Fish Bay or Chocolate Hole. This was our first experience staying near town and let me say, this was absolutely incredible. The house was in pristine condition and each and every person we had any amount of contact with at VIVA was beyond helpful and professional. The small touches of snacks and beach bags for our use added to the amazing experience. The ONLY 2 things we would change would be #1) with 6 people staying in the home for an entire week, we could have used more toilet paper. It would have been nice to have the midweek maid service restock us with a few more rolls #2)The midweek maid service was scheduled to come Tuesday and she never showed. We had to call VIVA the next day to inquire about this. They DID send her up that day, but the VIVA representative never acknowledged our inconvenience.

    • Manager Responded on 6/22/2015

      Thank you so much for your feedback and we're delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. We're so very sorry for the inconvenience of having your mid week service rescheduled. The housekeeper had a definite and an unforeseeable emergency and by the time we were informed the only alternative was to have it rescheduled all together to ensure you received the best service! We apologize if we did not acknowledge your inconvenience and look forward to your future stay! The VIVA Team!

    Neil P from Raleigh, NC recommends this vacation rental

    Sapphire Breeze is an amazing VIlla; Great location, Perfect views, and a unique property.

    The was nothing about this VIlla that needed to be changed. It was clean, well maintained, and provided unique amenities; Pool Feature, Lower Apartment, great veranda, hot tub, and awesome night lighting.

    It was the luck that the TVs in the Bedrooms did not work (Dish Receiver); who needs TV when you have this view. It was due to faulty equipment not the owners or the Prop Mngt company....things break! The Property Mngt tried to resolve the issue but a new receiver needed to be ordered, out of their control.

    There was nothing about this Villa that would cause me not to return. VIVA Villas did a fantastic job with any request and kept us informed as needed. Excellent experience.

    Sapphire Breeze had everything we needed for a perfect St. John vacation. The Villa was well appointed with everything from Beach Chairs and Beach Bags to grilling utensils and brushes, and snorkels, masks and fins. The villa is located very convenient to downtown Cruz Bay and we enjoyed breathtaking views every night. The layout is very spacious and allows guests privacy from one another when needed but plenty of common areas-we ate almost every meal outside on the huge dining table. Wonderful time, highly recommended!

    We had a great stay at Sapphire Breeze. There were a few minor glitches, but the staff at VIVA Villas was very responsive and none of the issues impacted our stay at all. The views were fantastic, and the pool was wonderful. We loved the tile work and the details within the home were beautiful. We stayed with our 2 childre (ages 14 and 11) and they loved each getting their own room. The downstairs room, while private and somewhat remote, felt very secure. It would be great for an older child or couple. All in all, it was a truly memorable vacation and we felt lucky to have found Sapphire Breeze. One note--we had trouble with cell access at the home (although the internet worked). It turned out to be a blessing and it was easy to get to a spot where the cell service was available, but we were initially surprised. There is a phone at the house, though.

    We were overwhelmed with the Sapphire Breeze! the views were amazing, the endless pool had a fountain and waterfall. The tile artwork which was abundant in the house was incredible. Sitting in the hot tub at the end of a day with great views of the constellation was breathtaking and totally relaxing. The villa was well furnished and the minor appliance issues that we had were professionally and immediately resolved. The house was well stocked with plates, dishes, cooking utensils, pots, and tools. The location was literally 5 minutes to town, but you felt miles away from everything. And the views were incomparable. the only negative of the home, which did not affect our group of 3 couples, was that the upstairs 4th loft bedroom was not air conditioned and would be extremely uncomfortable had we had our original group of 4 couples.

    Now that we've officially immersed ourselves into your wonderful corner of the world - the first was 10 years ago and finally fulfilled our goal to return - we can't wait to come back! Sapphire Breeze exceeded our expectations and when we do come back we will find it difficult to even consider staying at another property. Sapphire Breeze turned out to be as important a part of our anniversary celebration as the entire island of St. John.

    Viva Villa's staff was very helpful and professional. Unfortunately our jobs require us to stay in touch even while on vacation and when the home's internet/wi-fi went down V.V. went to work promptly and corrected the problem quickly. We heartily recommend this property for your family's stay in beautiful St. John.

We also had some difficulty trying to use the VHS and DVD systems for our 4 year old, as they seemed a bit out of date. Also, one day the Westin compressor ran so loudly that it really affected our enjoyment of the few for about 24 hours. Other than that, it was fabulous! We will return.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your recent stay at Sapphire Breeze. We truly value your feedback and sincerely apologize for the issue with the outlet on the lower bedroom that was not functional (the a/c was operational). Unfortunately, we were not notified by you until the third day and once notified, we were able to correct the issue quickly. The DVD player was also functional and we agree that VHS is very dated and we’d like to remove once we get the ok from the homeowner who just loves watching movies the 'old fashioned' way. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience this caused and look forward to the opportunity of having you back soon! The VIVA! Team

    A great house with great accommodations and great views. The service from the VIVA team was outstanding from sales to the greeter to the team the dealt with the washing machine problem that could have happened at home. We would rent this place again without hesitation. Some of the other guest with us plan to rent this house again in June.

    Overall a terrific vacation. Sapphire Breeze is very comfortable, well-maintained and conveniently located. Tyronne was our greeter and he repreented Viva and the home very well. A few comments (none of which negatively impacted our stay): 1. The big screen
    TV in the living room was very nice (it even received Sirious XM radio) but is somewhat awkwardly located. 2. Other than the bar in the kitchen, there is no interior eating location (the outside table is great). 3. The curtains in the bedrooms, although very
    nice, don't fully cover the windows (or at least we couldn't figure out how to do so). 4. The smoke detector in the master / pool bedroom was missing. This is a very nice home and would recommend it. We hope to be back.

    • Manager Responded on 9/22/2011

      Thanks so veru much for your detailed feedback. You are correct, the majority of the dining options at Sapphire Breeze lies outside where guests can enjoy the colors of the sunset.The flatscreen television placement (on the northern) was a necessary one due to the internal spiral staircase in the living room. On the upper level, the internal eating location is limited to the kitchen bar area. However, the lower level has a full dining area inside. We hope to have you back! The VIVA Team!

    We had an amazing week at Sapphire Breeze. There was plenty of room & privacy for all 10 of us. The hot tub died on us twice and the grill could stand to be replaced, but those are minor issues. Sapphire Breeze is a wonderful house and everyone wanted to stay "forever." We hope to be back.

    • Manager Responded on 8/2/2011

      Thank you so much for offering us candid feedback on your stay at Sapphire Breeze! While we apologize for the inconvenience of the hot tub. Upon your departure we discovered the power loss had reset a breaker. It has since been repaired. Also, we have made the owner aware that the Grill may need to be replaced. We appreciate your response!

    Great location,5 minutes to Cruz Bay. Incredible views that words can not do it justice. Even though the interior could use some updating and the road leading to the villa needs repairs this villa is all about fun and outdoor living in St John. Walk out of your bedroom and jump into the pool or hot tub. The handmade tile work all around the villa is beautiful. Definitely recommend Sapphire Breeze and Viva!

    We loved the pool and all the beautiful tile work. I felt the housekeeping needed
    help, borders were tore off drapes in Master, ink in dryer. Steps to hottub about to cave in. We understand there was a lot of rain before we came and the
    road in was VERY bad. Needed a load of gravel as the ruts scraped the bottom of our rental. But the weather was perfect and regardless of the few things that weren't perfect, we had a wonderful vacation and will return.

      Thank You so much for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your recent stay. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit and are eager to address your concerns to improve the amenities at Sapphire Breeze. We understand that the bottom borders of the drapes were torn. They are huge draperies and replacements are very difficult to find but is in the works. Ink in the dryer is a new for Sapphire Breeze but you can be sure that we'd address this as soon as possible. Thanks again for your feedback! We look forward to the opportunity of hosting you in the future. The VIVA Team!

    Bruce C from Upper Marlboro, MD recommends this vacation rental

    Let me begin by acknowledging that the week of our visit to St. John was unusually wet. Based on comments we heard from local residents, the island experienced a solid week of rain before we arrived and we experienced another solid week of rain during our stay. I understand that this abundance of rain did wonders for area cisterns, but it forced us to spend far more time indoors at Sapphire Breeze than we originally planned.

    Location wise, the villa is fantastic. The views from the bedrooms and pool deck are postcard perfect and the tile work throughout the house is magnificent - especially around the pool and hot tub. The pool itself is nice with its infinity edge and great waterfall feature. The surrounding grounds are well-maintained and nicely landscaped. We also appreciated the positioning of the home on the hillside; it shielded villa guests from views of other homes in the area.

    The problems we experienced rest with the general upkeep of the villa. The kitchen and bathrooms need updating; the bedroom doors are weathered and difficult to open/close; several door locks were broken making it difficult to secure the villa; the roof in the kitchen and downstairs studio apartment leaked – this was particularly bad in the downstairs studio apartment where an abundance of dripping water exposed the wood birdcage, sofa, and end table to water damage; the wind and rain blew in through the bottom of the bedroom doors – soaking area rugs; bedroom curtains were torn and difficult (if not impossible) to close making privacy a concern; and the hot tub needs repair as only a few of the main water jets were functional. The lack of air conditioning in the main portion of the house was difficult as well making the bedrooms the only comfortable place to relax during periods of long downpours. Despite these concerns – all of which are fixable – we haven’t ruled out a future stay at Sapphire Breeze, but we'd certainly pick a different time of year

    • Manager Responded on 8/20/2010

      We did receive your completed survey and online review and wanted to thank you for taking the time to complete both. We can clearly see that you have invested time to complete. When we receive a review often time many guests do not provide the vast amount of details you provided and that you provided this to us was very appreciated and helpful. In response to your completed survey, we print and have each member of the staff review, initial/add comments. We then pass the survey off to the villa owner so that he can see the review. Finally, we work on a plan to implement solutions to any issues. As part of my job, I read online reviews and once verified I write an online managerial response. Your review was submitted sometime to our cache on 8/13. We received only one review that day and several the next so it was overlooked- we apologize. When I noticed that it was over looked on Monday and there was no response, I immediately printed and began to gather those details and complete the response. You should know that it is not our position to remove guest feedback from our website. Every guest stay is paramount to our business and your feedback is equally as important. As part of our response and the gathered information to respond to your review, I'd like to let you know the following: We've done caulking in several areas of the kitchen since your stay, the owners are currently onsite and as we've had heavy rains several times in August, have not observed any leaks. We will continue to monitor. The master bedroom door handles have been replaced with larger, less complex handles and locks repaired. Although you did not mention nor we assume had any difficulty with, we are completely resurfacing the pool at the villa. Painting has been completed on much of the living room beams and further painting is being done on the spa steps and support. Another improvement we'd like you to know about is the brand new grill we're installing as well as landscaping improvements...

    Elegant and beautifully detailed villa. Incredible handmade tile decor throughout. We loved this place, with one exception: the four lounge chairs on the deck were shabby and rickety. Two were broken-one collapsed when used and one cut me on the arm (broken chair arm). Disappointing not to be able to sit comfortably on deck and enjoy the view. Otherwise, a spectacular home. Comfortable beds-air conditioned bedrooms. All amenities you need are here; but what's up with the deck chairs?
    One caveat: At certain times the noise from a processing plant below the villa was disturbing. This was during the day, not at night.

    Sapphire Breeze is a beautifully designed villa with fantastic views of great Cruz Bay and on clear days ST. Croix is very visible. this is our second stay and would highly recommend this villa for 2 to 3 couples ample bedrooms and enough room that you are not "bumping" into each other. Pool is fabulously designed and hot tub is always a favorite. first time renters to this villa make sure to request being brought to the villa via rt 10 to Pastory Garden location much easier road.

    The villa is perfect for families. The sleeping areas afford good privacy. The pool is wonderful for children (who are swimmers) and adults. There is an abundance of snorkel gear for borrowing. The location is good but the serenity is sometimes interrupted by the noise from the Weston Resort laundry facility and on occasion the Resort night club. The breeze is great and interior and exterior fans are sufficient for keeping things cool (ac is available in the 2 master suites). I would rent Sapphire Breeze again if vacationing with my children and their respective families.

    The Sapphire Breeze is a magical place! It was our second time there and all was perfect. Any issues that we may have had were quickly taken care of with a conversation with Christine or Karin. The management team was very helpful from the time we first reserved the villa to the last day that we were there. The location in the hills overlooking the Westin St. John and Great Cruz Bay could not have been better. It was also an enjoyable ride to the beautiful beaches along the north shore of the island. Sitting on the deck overlooking the pool and waterfall and then over the Bay was the most peaceful setting - especially at night. Close to town and far enough away afforded us a lot to do and quiet times when wanted. The large hot tub accommodated all of our guests and lead to a nice close to each evening. The many "extras" that are included at this villa made our stay very comfortable as well as we didn't have to bring a lot of things with us. We will certainly return to the Sapphire Breeze!

    Overall, our trip to one of our favorite places was great. Sapphire Breeze was a tad run down with lots of junk around and under the house. The view from this Villa is unbeleivable, but getting to this house is a pain....2 trechorous hills followed by an unpaved road! We will be back soon...just not to this villa

    • Manager Responded on 4/2/2009

      Thanks for your feedback! The villa is perched high on the hillside –Sapphire Breeze’ elevation is one of the main reasons why the property has fantastic views. The roads are paved leading out to the villa except for the last 100 yards before you turn into the villa's driveway. St. John's roads are narrower than the standard roads.
