About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This newly remodeled property commands unblocked views of Crystal Cove, St. John, and the British Virgin Islands. Your choices of how to spend your time are unlimited---bask in the tropical sun on the white, sandy beach, or sit in the shade of a sea grape tree with a warm breeze blowing over you while you read that book you've been saving, or hop in one of the local 'dollar taxis' and make the trip to Red Hook for shopping or lunch or dinner.

If you are a serious shopper, you are only 20 minutes from Havensight--a mecca for tax free jewelry and clothing shopping. Dozens and dozens of stores are waiting for you to come and negotiate your best price for well-known brands!! From there you can walk to the newly-completed Yacht Haven Grande--view the cruise ships as you dine or shop in this amazing oasis of style and great food.

When you come back to your condo, you can refresh yourself in the newly renovated bathrooms which include granite topped vanities and a glass block shower. The completely equipped kitchen allows you to demonstrate your own cooking skills on all new appliances (and new cabinets and granite counter tops) or just stow all the snacks you need to carry you over until you go to nearby restaurants.

The choices are all yours!!

Why Nancy and Bob Biroc chose Estate Smith Bay

We fell in love with Crystal Cove because of its beautiful beach, its inspiring views of St John and BVI's and its great location to the marina which is a short walk away and its proximity to the ferry to all of the islands. We love to snorkel, scuba dive , windsurf and fish. Crystal Cove offers all of these activities.When we are not having fun enjoying the sun and surf, Crystal Cove has a quiet and relaxing calmness about which truly makes this place very special.

5 months after 2 hurricanes and things were great!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean and ready to go. Sapphire beach was great. They have everything there for you to tour other beaches to snorkel and we hit 5 others with the chairs and cooler and beach towels they provide. Hot water heater had issue and owners promptly had maintenance there in the morning and fixed it. The island itself is still recovering but all the restaurants in red hook are open as is the crystal cove condo that is a great place to get some R&R! We had a wonderful time.

Amazing place to stay and very convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Crystal Cove over 4th of July week. We are so happy we decided to stay in this condo and hope to come back again some day! This condo has the best location. You can walk out the front door and right to the beach. This was very convenient for us so that we could enjoy the beach early morning or late in the evening after a day of exploring. Also the snorkeling at this beach was amazing. For the days that we decided to explore, this beach was fully equipped with snorkel gear, boogie boards and a cooler. The owner also has some very good information at the condo about the local restaurants, grocery stores and things to do. The place was clean and very spacious for our family of 4. We had an amazing trip!

Hidden Gem. Very nice place to stay with 3 children 7-12 yr old.

  • 5 of 5

The beach is wonderful we went snorkeling 6-10 times a day right out front and it's top notch snorkeling. The beach is great and not crowded when we were there. The large unit was very nice and clean obviously the owners have their renters in mind as most things you might want or need are there.

I stayed at the property December 2015 for an all girls trip to celebrate my birthday. The property was well maintained and the owners made sure all of our needs were met. The keys were sent well in advance. We enjoyed being able to wake up to a wonderful view in the morning and walk right down to the beach. I had friends who slept on the murphy bed and sofa bed and there were no complaints. There were extra pillows and comforters/sheets. The property is very close to Red Hook where we drove a few minutes for dinner and nights out. Parking was never an issue. Inside the condo we had all the amenities we needed. We went grocery shopping at the beginning of the trip and was able to cook a few good meals. We also utilized the blender for frozen drinks. I would enjoy staying at this property again!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to stay on St. Thomas. We are a retired couple who have traveled extensively and lived abroad. We can say that this is a world class vacation rental. We were looking for a somewhat impromptu get away for our wedding anniversary. Our previous experience with the Virgin islands was a family camping vacation on St. John over 20 years ago. We have aged out of camping but still wanted something that would give us the opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the islands without the distractions of a resort or the remoteness of a mountain cottage. We rented unit C-14 for one week at the end of October and it met our expectations perfectly. The rental experience was completely hassle free and personable. No hidden charges or surprises. The condo unit is up to date and very well equipped. There is a breathtaking view across a saltwater lagoon to the beach with St John and Tortola visible across the water. A few steps to the beautiful beach with some of the best snorkeling anywhere. Beach chairs are provided and there is plenty of shade. There is also a beach bar/grill at one end of the beach but we never tried it. Convenient to Red Hook for ferry to St. John for an easy day trip. Red Hook also has a reasonable selection of restaurants though we preferred cooking for ourselves.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

I never write reviews, but wanted to share how wonderful our vacation was here, can't wait to come back! The condo itself was completely updated and immaculate. It was stocked with every necessity and luxury possible. There was plenty of cool sand toys and noodles for my 7 year old son, and all the scuba equipment for my teen girls! Perfect unit location, only a few steps from the beach!!!! The owner gave us her own little typed booklet, packed with restaurant suggestions, as well as places to shop, go on adventures, etc... This was huge for us because we didn't have to waste one minute of our time. We knew where to grab breakfast, dinner, fruit for the beach, the best ice cream, where all the great snorkel spots were to see turtles, stingrays, etc... She also explained in detail the best way to hop over to St John, we loved it so much, we went there twice. The beach, which was directly in front of condo, was amazing! Perfectly calm, soft sand, free beach chairs, not crowded, and everyone was super friendly. There was so much to do, we really enjoyed every minute here!!!
