News - Slice VI the poolside restaurant opens up on 2/1 aren't we fortunate?
Update # 5 1/11/18 Roads are improved over last month, more stores and restaurants open. No TV or landline still and no word when. But there's a working private hotspot in the condo. Beach was busy today. Slice at the pool has not yet reopened - more news on that when I have it. Ferries are running to St John on a regular schedule but check before planning any late night visits because last I heard the last boats run at 8 PM.
Update #4 12/18/17 I just returned from a very pleasant visit. Power was on and the property and beach have recovered nicely. Still no TV/Phone or web in the condo but check with me about the availability of a Wifi hotspot. My Sprint phone worked well enough, AT&T users were very happy. Slice VI, the poolside restaurant should open by Christmas, the Beach Bar is open, Red Hook is very much open. Road conditions improve daily. The St John National Park reopened last week. Skinny Legs in Coral Bay reopened yesterday. Please go and support island recovery! VI Strong!Update # 3 12/6 Power is on! I'm heading on down Friday to check things out.
Update # 2 - 11/28 @ 5 PM Great News - According to the Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority Facebook Page - Electric Service will be restored to Sapphire Village by Dec 9
UPDATE #1 -**HURRICANE UPDATE** - First I'd like to thank all my past and future guests and friends for their concern these past few months. Secondly, EVERYTHING IS FINE. Both condos came through with nary a scratch. Some water did find it's way into both and there is some cosmetic damage but many were not as lucky. Many of you may have noticed the listing was unavailable for a spell and perhaps took this as a sign but this was only due to the fact that our subscriptions renew in the fall and the dearth of tourists gave us no reason to renew. Both units are occupied up until the end of the year by some people who lost their housing either within Sapphire Village or elsewhere on St Thomas. My family and friends are all safe, some have evacuated temporarily and all have life-altering stories to tell. Electric service is still being provided on a limited basis for just a few hours each day and many repairs are underway across the property. Generally, the upper-level buildings and units fared less favorably; the two buildings at the top of the hill sustaining roof damage. The rainfall has helped the landscape begin its recovery but it will take at least a year for the island to start looking lush and FEMA blue tarps will be visible for years to come. Electric service is expected to be restored by mid-November and once that happens I plan on going to make a personal assessment. Jackie and I have our reservations for early January we don't plan on making any changes. I had a rash of cancellations in both condos after the storm which was welcome and opened up both units for emergency housing needs. Currently, I have an 8-week slot that just opened up from mid-Jan-March in the studio due to a non-storm related cancellation. So to summarize - all is well - both units are available for rental - the calendars are up to date HOPE TO POST AN UPDATE BY DEC 1 ****

My husband and I purchased this condo in the pre-construction phase in 1970. We used it as our getaway and I still use it yearly. My son Tom manages it for me and he also manages a 1-bedroom unit about 60 feet away that he co-owns with two more of my children.
Tom purchased this Condo in 1970
Why Tom chose Estate Smith Bay
My late brother settled in St. Thomas in 1958 after "discovering" the island while serving in the US Navy Submarine force a few years prior. Along with other island careers he became a successful real estate agent and convinced my late husband and I that this property and especially the corner location on the water was 2nd to none.

This is our third visit to St Thomas as well as the East End. Once again, we were not disappointed. The condo was updated, clean and had everything we needed. The view was just awesome. This condo is very close to the pool and restaurant. Sapphire Beach is beautiful. There is an outdoor bar that serves some food that is right on the beach. It was great working with Tom. He answered all of our questions regarding St Thomas and St John's recovery since the hurricanes. This included helpful links for us to do our own research. We recommend Tom's condo and we definitely would return here again. Thanks Tom for sharing your home with us!
Thanks for the review Sue, I'm glad I was able to answer your questions and that you enjoyed the "awesome view" Having the poolside restaurant "Slice VI" so close to the condo is great and I'll admit to having some fun times occasionally at the "Sapphire Beach Bar" Please come back again soon.
It was perfect.
Updated studio was great-beautiful bath/shower and granite kitchen complete with dishes, coffeemaker, stove top and toaster oven. The balcony was always shaded with a nice breeze. The bed was comfy. It is right across from the pool and restaurant where we had delicious meals.
Excellent condo for two.
Toms condo has all u could ask for. Comfortable bed, great shower, super view of marina and St. Johns. If u all want to try something different do the Foodie Tour in town. Great local dishes and nice history lesson on St. Thomas. Sundays at ABI beach is a great time with local music. I dont remember the ride back. Lol Beachs in St. John are awesome. Have fun and enjoy Toms place.

Exceeded every expectation.
We had only visited St Thomas once before on cruise. We knew we had to return and so began our quest. After many hours of looking on VRBO, HomeAway, etc. Tom's place at Sapphire was our choice. It is perfect. Clean, centrally located, restaurant on property and the veranda overlooking the marina was such a treat. Coffee every morning and a walk to the beach! Perfect for two looking for laid back vacation. The Safari taxis were always available and we took the ferry to St John multiple times. So easy and so much fun. Don't hesitate to stay with Tom. He is available, helpful and his property is gorgeous!
Great Studio overlooking Sapphire Beach Marina
My husband and I stayed at this cute studio condo at Sapphire Beach just a couple of weeks ago. Tom was very easy to deal with and a great communicator! Everything was exactly as described online. You don't need anything except your suitcase (stuffed with swimsuits and shorts) and maybe a little bit of food and some libations!! The kitchen has everything you need. The location is great - close to Red Hook and the ferry to St. John. The week just went too quickly - stay as long as you can...... St. Thomas is laid back and very relaxing. Tom's condo is a good place for your home base while you are there!!!
We were taking are first vacation together post baby and this place had everything we needed. Tom was very informative and was there every step of the way to answer questions and give updates on new restaurants since our last visit. We'll definitely stay here again.
Just 1 mile east is Red Hook where you can board the hourly ferry for the 20 minute ride to Cruz Bay, St John. Red Hook has numerous shops, bars, restaurants, a small market and dozens of marine and tourist related vendors.
Tutu, a major commercial area, is about 5 miles to the west of Sapphire. Here you can find K-Mart, Home Depot, Price Smart, Cost-U-Less and major grocery markets.
Charlotte Amalie which most refer to to simply as 'Town' is about 8 miles to the west of Sapphire. This famous shopping district sells most anything from t-shirts to solid gold Rolex watches. Key-chains to exotic perfume. Shopping is not the only reason to go. The streets and alleyways hold hundreds of years of architectural beauty and history.
