You'll say, "THIS is how life is supposed be!"
We just visited our condo in late January and are very happy to report that we noticed no hurricane damage to our unit or building at all and that the grounds, beach, and area in general are absolutely beautiful. Don't hesitate to come to St. Thomas. It feels like summer down here! Just fabulous. Come and enjoy our elegant beachfront condominium remodeled with high end finishes in a unique West Indies chic style. The property is located on the second floor of E building, hanging out over the beach only feet from the water. Open the sliders and it feels like you are on the water and the island of St. John is within reach. The long island view is tremendous, not only of St. John, but also the British Virgin Islands and the boating activity of Pillsbury Sound. It is the perfect place to experience the best of St. Thomas. Come here and soak up the sun, the views, the serenity. Finally, you can just simply relax.
This dwelling, in Building E (considered the best for the long island view and easterly breeze) has undergone a complete renovation. Some of the highlights are:
New floor tile in porcelain
All fresh paint and custom ceiling trim molding
New designer lighting and lamps
Glass door shower enclosure with designer tile
Custom cabinetry in both the kitchen and bathroom
Custom built in closets with shelves
Minka high speed fans
Stainless Steel kitchen appliances
Designer kitchenware- all very high end, including Cuisinart cookware
Top-of-the-line furnishings, including:
Solid mahogany chair and ottoman with Serena and Lily upholstery
Solid bamboo coffee table, glass end table, dining table and chairs
Pillow top bed,
Wicker chairs with indoor/outdoor cushions by Serena and Lily
Hunter Douglas sliding shades in pecan bamboo and much much more.
The majority of the furniture was purchased at Silk Greenery- the highest end furniture store on the island.
With the views, the beach, the water, the amenities, and the upgrades, you'd be hard pressed to find a better vacation value in St. Thomas than Sapphire Serenity.
It truly is a beautiful place.

Hi, everyone. I'm Shannon, one of four owners of this place in paradise. Here's our story: When Gary stood on the balcony at Sapphire Serenity for the first time and looked eastward, he felt a little chill run up his spine. "This is it," he said to himself. This was the fulfillment of a 30-year dream: to find a place in the tropics that promises paradise 365 days a year. In pursuit of the perfect location for a vacation home, Gary had been island hopping in the Caribbean for several days. Now, still standing on the balcony, he grabbed his phone and called his business partner, Geoffrey. "You gotta see this," he said. And, as they say, "the rest is history." But a more apt phrase might be "paradise is yours, come make memories!" Busy with careers, kids, relatives, and obligations, the four of us have few "windows of opportunity" to enjoy our place in the sun. Until we have more time to be here regularly, we invite you to enjoy living on the beach a mere 30 feet from the turquoise water directly in front of our vacation home. This property is jointly owned by two couples, Shannon & Geoffrey and Gary & Patty. We are all from Ohio and started eyeing this unit in February of 2017 when, you know, it's really cold outside! Now we have a solution to that next year! Why wait until then, you ask? We all have jobs! So, in the meantime, why not share it with you? We think you'll enjoy it and we will be responsive as "hosts." We all travel a lot and know how important it is to have our expectations met when we are staying in places other than home. If you need something, have a question or concern, we are just a text away!

Why Shannon chose Estate Smith Bay
Why this property? The view! It really is breathtaking. And, this location really has it all. You have a beach and pool just steps away. Supplies and restaurants and night spots are nearby. There is a marina steps away. Water-based activities (snorkeling, fishing, boating, shelling, walking, etc.) are very easy to do. Want a quiet romantic getaway? You can have it here. Want to get away from it all? Easy, just do it!

Wonderful place to enjoy paradise, get some down time and relax.
Really nice and comfortable condo that sits right on the ocean, the patio has a great view and very relaxing with the lounge chairs where you can really relax, read a book and listen to the waves rolling in. Inside they have a very nice layout with plenty of space to spread out and take care meals, kick back and watch a little TV or listen to some music. The new King size bed is very comfortable and there is plenty of room to put your “Stuff” away.
The pool and the beach are just a stones throw away and easy to get lounge chairs to soak up the sunshine. Our group stayed in 3 condos, and this one was the best one of the 3. The owners are very responsive and easy to contact if you have issues or just need some advice on getting around or places to go. Thanks Shannon for letting us stay in your wonderful place. Can’t wait to go back!
We are so glad that you stayed with us and enjoyed your downtime relaxing in our piece of paradise. You can come back and stay with us anytime!
Excellent location and clean, comfortable and upscale accomodations
We really loved our stay at this property, and more important, the owner is responsive to any questions and issues that may arise. We will definitely recommend this place as an excellent choice for accommodations, and we will look to go back to the same unit.
Charles and Diana, Thank you for staying with us. We cannot wait to have you back next time!
Property is spectacular!
We have stayed at several different condos on Saphire Beach and we would highly recommend this property. It’s very clean, updated and has everything you need to have a great vacation. Kitchen is stocked for making meals, the bed is very comfortable with extra linens. Tv, CD player and internet all worked well. The views are amazing and snorkeling is on of the best spots on the island. Owner responded very quickly, she was easy to work with and very helpful. We will definitely plan to stay at this property again.
Thank you for staying at Saphhire Serenity. We strive to keep our condo well stocked with everything guests need to feel right at home. We're glad you had a positive experience at our condo in paradise. We hope to host you and your husband for many years to come.
A wonderful and relaxing place to stay on St Thomas. Stunning views right on the beach
2nd year in a row for wife and I to vacation in March at the Sapphire Beach Resort. Love the location being right on the beach, stunning views of St Johns and the other islands. Sea breezes come right thru your unit and the rolling waves at night lull you right to sleep. The sunrises over St John's every morning are amazing. Stayed in Bldg D last year, this year in Bldg E, unit E208 which is right next to the marina. Very convenient as we took an boat excursion to the Baths at Virgin Gorda and it left from this marina. Highly recommend either D or E since they have the best views. This condo was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. Its just like the pictures and description say on the website. The owner Shannon was very responsive to our communications and made sure we had an enjoyable experience. We will definitely plan to return next year and stay here again.
I agree that being located in building E is unique because of the view. It is calming and inspiring at the same time! Watching the sun rise over St. John is just breathtaking. Some guests report waking just before sunrise to simply enjoy the sounds of the waves to start their day. It truly is such a beautiful experience and I welcome you and your wife to stay with us again next year for your 3rd year at Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina.
Fantastic location steps from the water
Shannon's place is a great place to rewind and relax in a pleasant ambiance. The condo is located in the best part of the island in my opinion with easy access to two of the best beaches in St. Thomas. The condo is well furnished, well stocked and comes equipped with everything you may need for your enjoyment. Shannon was easy to get a hold on when we had an issue with the wifi and made sure she solved our problem. She even sent over the property overseer to help us. The unit has one of the best locations in the complex with unobstructed views of the ocean and St John's island. I highly recommend this unit, this complex and this location for your next vacation away from it all.
You are 100% correct about our unit being located on the best part of the island! The nearby beaches, the easterly breezes, and view of St. John are just a few of the reasons this location is perfect for a getaway.
I am glad we got the internet connection solved for you during your stay. We cannot wait to have you again.
Sapphire Serenity; a truly serene experience.
The ocean view and surrounding island landscapes provide a constants reminder that you are in paradise. The crashing waves & ocean breeze will lull any traveler into a serene state, perfect for enjoying their stay in the USVI. The room was well kept & the owner was no more than a simple text/email away. Very responsive and willing to answer any questions. Extremely helpful staff. All within 10 minutes of shopping and attractions. Walking distance to beach/pool.
Will definitely be booking again in the future.
Great for family. My children will never forget this trip.
A wonderful experience!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We loved looking at all of the photos you sent us during your time at Sapphire Serenity. We look forward to having you as a guest in the future!
