You can't get any closer to the water! Oceanfront ground floor condo. 37 steps from the water. Enjoy your stay at what I think is one of the world's most beautiful beaches with the ease of accessing your condo at any time.

Enjoy swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing in the warm crystal clear water of Sapphire Beach. Whether you just want to relax, or have a more adventurous time, we have it all. The marina is just around the other side of the building to rent jet skis, para sail, book a snorkel or scuba adventure, or charter a romantic sunset cruise.

Enjoy just relaxing on the beach with beautiful views of St. John or the other islands. I'm sure someone will be by soon to offer you a drink, or perhaps a snack.

We provide beach chairs and snorkel gear!

We also have a beautiful pool, the Banana Cabana for a frozen beverage and fantastic food, and of course the local iguana population!

Need to check email, post your photos, research a restaurant or check flight status? We now have free wireless internet access available in our condo.

Sapphire Beach has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Paradise!

About Gregg and Aimee Dodd

Aimee and I live in Pittsburgh, PA and try to get to St. Thomas as often as possible. With a kid and two dogs, it's not always that easy.

Gregg and Aimee Dodd purchased this Condo in 2010

Why Gregg and Aimee Dodd chose Estate Smith Bay

After spending our honeymoon at Sapphire Beach Resort in 2000, we knew this was one of the nicest beaches we had been to. We traveled to Aruba, Mexico, Bahamas, Punt Cana, and all of the other popular vacation spots but we kept coming back to Sapphire Beach. There is something to be said about feeling safe, and still being in the US helps. Everyone is friendly and there is always something to do.

What makes this Condo unique

This condo truly is the best location at Sapphire. You are far enough from the main beach and pool that you get to relax at all times. Conversely, take 40 or 50 steps and you are at the pool. Walk a little further and you are at the marina. You are centrally located with easy access to everything. We go shopping as soon as we arrive and usually eat breakfast and lunch in the condo. Aimee and I are beach people, so being at the beach is what it is all about for us. At night we head into Red Hook to one of the restaurants. Duffy's Love Shack is a must visit, but don't go too early. The party has to wind itself up!

                                                                        The property was absolutely beautiful!

                                                                        The island and sapphire are ready for guests!

                                                                        Great Place to stay when visiting USVI.

                                                                        This is our second time visiting St Thomas and staying at Sapphire Beach and we cannot say enough good things. Perfect size and location to the beach and several fun spots. I recommend you check out Calypso Charters for a day on the catamaran Bad Kitty 2 where you’ll visit the BVI and go snorkeling.

                                                                        Experience was Awesome. Loved waking up every morning to the beautiful ocean.

                                                                        A fabulous time at Sapphire Beach!

                                                                        Whether you are looking for a laid back relaxing vacation, or upbeat adventure, this is the condo for you. Located on the beach, there is no need to pack a bag to head out. Leave everything in your condo and walk right back in when you need it. The kitchen offers you the opportunity to fix yourself a quick meal, grab a snack, or just a cold drink.
