Property description

Sand Dollar is a lovely two-bedroom island getaway located in Battery Hill, a gated community that’s just a five-minute walk to Cruz Bay's restaurants, boutiques, convenience stores, beach bars, taxi stand, ferry dock, and the quiet beach at Frank Bay.

Two sets of double doors in the living room open to the private covered porch that overlooks Cruz Bay Harbor and beautiful Sir Francis Drake Channel, making it a perfect spot for morning coffee and evening cocktails.

Occupying the entire second floor, Sand Dollar captures the island’s beautiful trade winds, which are assisted by ceiling fans in every room. Guests will feel right at home with the flat-screen TV, cable, high-speed wifi, reliable cell phone service, and comfortable furniture upholstered in tropical colors. There is indoor and outdoor dining for four plus an open galley kitchen with water views that is fully equipped, right down to wine glasses for every occasion and a blender for making frozen tropical drinks.

The queen bed in the master bedroom and the two twin beds in the guest bedroom are all dressed with soft white linens and topped with ample pillows. Each bedroom has its own air conditioning unit. A full bathroom with a tile shower and sumptuous towels is shared by both bedrooms.

With just nine private homes in Battery Hill, guests can enjoy the charm and ambiance of this special West Indian paradise. Surrounded by lush Caribbean greenery, the refreshing pool, sun deck, gas grill, free laundry facility, and ample parking are for the exclusive use of Battery Hill owners and guests.

Sand Dollar has everything needed for a relaxing and affordable family vacation, making it the perfect “home away from home” on St. John.

NOTE: Sand Dollar is not suitable for children younger than age 4. Children over age 4 are welcome and are considered "additional guests."

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We fell in love with the warm tropical breezes, pristine beaches, crystal-clear water, and the unspoiled beauty of this paradise island during our first visit in 1998. We love the laid-back lifestyle of island living, where the biggest decision of the day is which of the beautiful white-sand beaches to go to. After years of renting on St. John, we discovered how important it is to stay at a clean, comfortable, convenient, and relaxing vacation getaway, which is why Sand Dollar has always been our favorite “home away from home” -- first as renters and now as owners. We hope you'll feel just as much at home at Sand Dollar as we always have.

Why the Owner Chose Great Cruz Bay Estates (Bethany, Cruz Bay, St. John 00830, USVI):
We love the simplicity and beauty of St. John. The tranquil turquoise waters, the white sand, the glorious views of the Caribbean islands in the distance, and the spectacular sunsets over St. Thomas can't be beat.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We always leave in a more relaxed state of mind and body.
