Hello and welcome to our paradise, the Virgin Islands! Robin and I have been traveling to STT since 2005 and have just fallen in love with the natural beauty of the Virgins! We want all of our friends to have fun and enjoy some of the gems that we have come across in our travels and adventures in the “islands".
Robin purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Robin chose Estate Smith Bay
The locals vote Sapphire Beach one of the Top 3 beaches on STT year after year! The view from the beach is amazing. You can see 16 USVI and BVI islands from the beach. Sapphire is the only beach with a marina for water sports, crusing, parasailing, jet-skiing, etc. Sapphire is 2 minutes from Red Hook on the dollar taxi route. Red Hook has many amenities - grocery store, shopping, hardware store, banks, 14+ pubs and restaurants, ferry to St John. The ferry to St John leaves every hour, it's a 15 minute ride to Cruz Bay, STJ for more restaurants, pubs and shopping.

We just returned from a girls getaway weekend on St. Thomas. This condo is in a great location and we had a wonderful time. The owners were very kind and easy to work with. The condo is pushed back from the beach a little bit but there is a beautiful view from the balcony and an easy walk down to the beach and marina at the Sapphire Resort. We didn't rent a car while we were visiting. Taxi service from the airport was easy to arrange and the walk into the town of Red Hook (and to the ferry to St. John) is about half a mile. The road is not the best for walking along but we would usually walk down and take a taxi back pretty easily. Sapphire also has a pool and a bar which were both great once the sun went down. The condo is homey and we cooked in most nights using the equipped kitchen. The owners provided towels, beach chairs, and floats which made flying over without checked luggage easy! The condo had everything we needed and we were sad to have to leave. We'd all go back in a heartbeat!
Getaway with the kids
We went for a week in early December. The owners were wonderful to work with and extremely responsive from the time of our preliminary queries to final details/repeat questions the day before arrival. They were patient with me! :) We loved the condo grounds: the pools and views during day and night were delightful. Take advantage of the restaurant's happy hour! The condo residents seem to be a lovely community of nice people. The kitchen had everything we could ever need for 7 days of meal prep. My mom, kids and I all slept like babies the 6 nights we were there. We were very happy with everything. The deck is spacious, with a nice view. That was my favorite spot for breakfast and coffee. We also enjoyed the waterfront walk to that GORGEOUS beach. Our thanks to the owners! We hope to return soon.
Ps. We would have been happy at the condo all day every day for our week (beach in the am, pool in the pm, meals at the condo) but here's a Tip for the [adventurous traveler]: this was our 2nd visit to the island. Both times, we rented a car and took it to St. John. If you can stomach the drive (and no, it's not jeep only, as you've probably read about. We got by fine in a yaris, on wet roads), Maho Bay is truly heaven on earth. A REAL GEM! Quiet, secluded beach with free parking and completely protected from the wind and big waves. We saw 3 stingrays there this year - just amazing. Bring your floats too! My daughter and i floated on our little mattress things for an hour, taking it all in. Just incredible.
Absolute paradise!! Just returned from spending a month and already counting down to returning. This unit has the perfect location. You will be in vacation mode from the minute you walk in and see the absolutely gorgeous view. The owners have thought of everything to provide in this unit and are a pleasure to work with. You feel at home within minutes. Everything you could want is there. A bonus is you are right above beautiful Sapphire beach. When you have had enough sun return to the balcony and enjoy the gorgeous view. Red Hook is a short distance and has multiple bars, restaurants and stores. Was very sad to depart and Can not wait to return to paradise.
I recently returned from a 12 night stay in this unit and I loved it! The condo is clean and spacious (just me so I had plenty of room...but definately room for 4) with an absolutely gorgeous view. This condo is in a perfect spot within the Sapphire Village Condominiums with a very short walk to the beach or to the pool/restaurant. Also the kitchen is equiped with every pot, pan, utensil, appliance needed and a full size refrigerator. I loved sitting on the balcony each morning with tea and toast while I enjoyed a lovely ocean breeze. Heaven! Also everyone is very friendly at the condos. There are snow birds, and vacationers and traveling nurses and always someone to talk to. And you can get free wi-fi right outside the Office 24/7. Sapphire Beach is lovely and I so appreciated that the owners of this unit provided beach chairs (otherwise I think they were $7 @ day). This beautiful beach has some trees for shade, snorkeling, volleyball court, bocci court, and other water sports. Food is not a problem at the beach as some St Thomas ladies had a grill area set up and made delicious grilled chicken sandwiches (among other things), plus people from the poolside restaurant at the condominiums came around to take orders as did someone from a pizza place in Red Hook. Or within 2 mins you could be back at the condo and make a little lunch! I did not rent a car but found it easy to catch the $1.00 safari to Red Hook to go to restaurants, buy food at the Market, or take the ferry to St John's ($12 RT) which I did twice. Also I took the safari to Charlotte Amalie for $2.00! You can also take a day trip on boat that is right at the Marina in front of the condos.
I highly recommend renting this property if you want to vacation in St Thomas: beach, pools, spectacular views, boating, restaurants, easy transportation.... gorgeous weather, island breezes... Paradise!
5 minute walk (1 minute by taxi) to Red Hook with 14 restaurants, wonderful night life, American Yacht Harbor marina and ferry to St John, VI.
