About Gregg or 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 or Aimee Dodd purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Gregg or 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 one of the best locations at Sapphire. You are far enough from the main beach and pool that you get to relax at all times. Conversely, walk a few hundred feet 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!

We loved it
The resort was beautiful and the condo was perfect for our family
Not worth the money! Badly in need of improvements/updates
I rented 5 condo’s for family members for my son’s Wedding. Compared to the others, this property was outdated, dirty, furniture is old, crappy old scratched-up pans. Towels were cheap & felt like sandpaper. Nothing made this condo stand out from the rest. Bare bones base model. Nothing special. Would not waste your money on this one!!
I knew when your son showed up at 9:00 AM (6 hours before check in) and demanded to be let into the room you were going to be trouble. I had guests check out the morning your son arrived. Normally my housekeeper spends a few hours cleaning and getting the room ready. Your son showed up and demanded to be let into the condo, so my housekeeper was not able to finish the cleaning. So I will admit that the condo was not cleaned, but that was your sons fault, not mine.
You are by far the worst guests I have ever had. I wish I could post the pictures that my housekeeper sent me after you checked out. You had no respect for my place and even broke our lamp. You left all of the dished unwashed and with food still in them. You left all of your trash in the condo and wet towels on furniture. You did nothing on the check out list and I still haven't figured out what you did to our towels. I can only assume you used them to clean fish that you caught??
The condo is all original, but it is clean. It is priced accordingly and the pictures in the listing show what the condo looks like.
Luckily I get to rate my guests on VRBO and I will be able to warn others how you treat other people's property.
Gregg and Aimee Dodd
This property isn't one of the more renovated ones on site. However, it is very comfortable. The small kitchen was enough to make a few meals at home. The lovely maid left a bag of ice for us as well as left all the ice trays full. The weather was amazing so we turned off the a/c and enjoyed listening to the waves every night. We enjoyed having 2 full baths that were very large. While in looking at the beach bar you wouldn't think they were functional it was wonderful meeting locals while having drinks and they make great burgers! Scott was very prompt in the mornings when we went out to ask for beach chairs! We had a rental car which was great for going over to St. John and Red Hook, but were very thankful for the taxi stand on the one night we went to watch the SuperBowl in Red Hook. While we were there Slice VI in Saphire Condos had their post hurricane re-opening and we walked over for 2 of our dinners. It was wonderful! We also met the owner of Parasailing VI there (Mike) I highly recommend those guys! All in all a fabulous post hurricane experience. The beaches are beautiful as ever and the people are also. Gregg was very prompt with all communication before our stay which was great. All in all it was wonderful. We will be back!
This Sapphire Beach condo made our vacay SPARKLE!!!!
My review is a year late, but being that I rely solely on reading the reviews left by others, I had to get it in! 1st- I need to mention that communication with Gregg was prompt and detailed. It was our first real family vacation in 15 years and we had never been to St. Thomas (or out of the states). Our condo location was at the BEST beach and central to many other must-see sights.There is a dive shop on location that rents out equipment. It seemed to be the place of choice for cruise ship drop-offs. Our condo was supplied with snorkel gear (although we brought our own), pool noodles, and other beachy supplies stored on one of the 2 decks overlooking the beach. The kitchen was efficient w/all that we needed to cook our own meals & stock the fridge with snacks. The condo was spacious enough (2 full bathrooms!) that we weren't on top of one another. We had cocktail/lunch waitress service on the beach from the nearby beach bar if we were inclined to hang 'home' for the afternoon. We met up with old friends from the states that now live on "the rock," and they were impressed w/our choice of condo/location. The condo was close to Red Hook (restaurants bars & and grocery store) and other beaches to snorkel and swim with sea turtles. We traveled with our sons (teens) and they were very engaged with all the island had to offer. I recommend renting a car to travel the entire island. It takes some getting used to driving on the opposite side. We used Island Buddy one day and highly recommend it to anyone that wants to see this beautiful island from the local's point of view. You will not forget their incredible rum punch!! We would absolutely stay at this condo again next time we need a family getaway!
This Sapphire Corner Villa was very well taken care, roomy and clean.. One of the best views you can get of Sapphire Beach and a great view of St.Johns. The beach area is kept clean and we had a great time snorkeling along the coastline with lots of different sea life to be seen. Hope to return again next year!
best location on the beach
Enjoyed ocean and sand views from the kitchen while sitting at table. Really nice.
The kitchen could use some more pans. All in all a great visit and will return to Sapphire.
