About Carole

I have been visiting St Thomas for over 10 years when I decided to buy a condo on this amazing Island.Love sitting on balcony in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the day sailing boats going out also can see the parasailing from condo and the open blue ocean and St John from balcony. In the evening I love sitting on balcony with a glass of wine and just totally relaxing.

Carole purchased this condo in 2011

Why Carole chose Estate Smith Bay

Fell in love with St Thomas and the people there. Sapphire Village is so close to Red hook there are plenty of restaurant,small shops and plenty of night life.Also

where you can catch a ferry to St John,if you do this I suggest to go to Trunk Bay it is amazing and there is a snorkel trail their

life guards and small hot dog stand,you can rent snorkeling gear there too.

Sapphire Village has 7 building complex My condo is directly in front of Marina and Ocean

view is amazing!! Cool breezes and watch sailboats,day charters,sunset cruise,ski jets and deep sea fishing trip can be booked and you leave and come back right there.

What makes this condo unique

So easy to catch a ferry to go to different Island. St John,BVI, St Croix and Tortola.There is 2 pools on complex one right out your front door and then one up the hill behind Building St Kitt . Short walk to Sapphire Beach. Everything is so close, there is a restuarant right there on complex,they serve breakfast,lunch and dinner. There is also a laundrymat by the office where you can wash your clothes .

Fabulous condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed 11 nights at Carole's unit. It is perfect! Great views, convenient location to restaurant, pool and laundry, and clean. I told Carole I was surprising my husband for his birthday and she had balloons and wine awaiting him.

What a great personal touch! She goes above and beyond to help with great island tips etc. You won't find a more friendly hostess! Thank you Carole for making our stay so memorable! We will book with you again!

Lovely little place

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing me to stay in your place immediately after hurricanes Irma and Maria. It was nice to have somewhere to come to after checking on my own home in deck point. Running water, a little electricity, a pool, and access to the beach were very much needed. The view from the deck at sunrise and sunset is lovely.

We have been to St Thomas many times, this trip was one of the best! We loved the condo.

  • 5 of 5

It was neat and clean and so close to one the best beaches around. We had no trouble navigating our way around, and if you want to spend a whole day on the beach then paying 9 bucks for a chair wasn't a bad thing 😎�! The wifi didn't work but we were to tired to care after a day of shopping, swimming or sailing to the BVI, the TV also might need some help, but again who is in the Islands for tv? We brought our own dvds and had a great time. My daughter and I were there to celebrate her graduation from college, this trip will be one that neither of us will ever forget! Thanks so much! We will both be back, oh and the snorkeling was fantastic and don't pass up a day trip to Water Island! What fun 🌴�🌴�🌴�🌴�

Owner's Response: Hi Megan So glad you and your daughter had a great Time !!! I love Sapphire Beach too !! If you didn't want to rent lounge chairs I have new chairs in condo.I find sitting on the balcony and views of ocean are amazing !! The wi-fi should of work I wish you had contacted me because sometimes you might need to reset it by unplugging it and plugging it back in. If power goes out on the Island (wish it does from time to time) you have to reset it. TV you have 2 clickers one for TV and one for cable box and you need to turn both on or TV won't work. I will have my maid check it out also and see what is going on . Thank you for letting me know. Yes please let me know when you would like to return

Beautiful Beach Walking Distance

  • 4 of 5

A nice little studio unit that was well stocked with extras, beach chairs, cooler, masks, bug spray, shampoo, coffee, condiments and more which made it convenient. The shower worked well, the water was filtered and drinkable, the ac was good, no stairs up or down, ceiling fans throughout. I liked everything but the bed. The reason was, for me, every time my husband moved the whole mattress bounced and it was also difficult to keep from rolling into each other toward the middle. The location was good. You could take the dollar safari bus into Red Hook only 5 minutes away where you could get a taxi. But it only went to the left so if you wanted to go to the right, to Coki Beach for instance, you could not unless you road all the way around and circled back, we did not try it as I was told it involved 2 bus changes. The pool was very nice, warm water, the restaurant was good but only open after 3pm during the weekdays. Also it was not open on Monday. So we had to leave the premises if we wanted a restaurant for breakfast or lunch or on a Monday. There is a beach bar but we did not use it. We were advised to not be on the beach at dusk or dawn. The beach is not real close about a 10 - 15 minute walk. It does have items for rent such as lounge chairs. It is a very pretty beach. Also there are no curtains. They are not really needed for privacy since the only thing in front of the unit is the marina with the boats. But there is no way to block the morning light in case you want to sleep in. The marina has a variety of boat trips people can take right from there which is convenient. We did not have a car but it looked like it would be easy parking and easy to find.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy So glad you enjoyed your stay at my condo and St Thomas. I am not aware of the bed being uncomfortable.I have not had any complaints from past renters. I will be back down in Aug and will check it out. Next time if you are in St Thomas You could of taken a taxi to Coki beach and Back I think it is like $5.00 per person and they pick you up right at the condo and drop you back at condo well worth it. Yes during off season the restaurant decided to limit it hours because of slow business. The brown and tan curtains could of been untied to block out the morning sun which I do when I am down there. I agree with you on the privacy of condo with nothing but boats and ocean in front of you, it is quit and amazing view !!!!!!!!! Thank you Carole

Just bring nothing but you and enjoy paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Sapphire Village and this condo is the place to stay at on the East End of Saint Thomas. If you're driving there is security parking for you if you're not driving you don't obviously need a car because you're close to the East End and everything is there including restaurants and bars. If you want to go to St John or the BVI the ferry service is a ten minute walk. If you want to take boat tours or fishing tours there are plenty right around the corner. We've done several of the BVIs. This particular condo is perfect because it is located on street-level so you do not have to use stairs to get to do it. It also has the parking right in front of it. It also has the pool and the restaurant "slice" right in front of it. In real estate they say location location location. Well this is location. When you enter the condo you will notice the patio immediately and the view is breathtaking. You will see sapphire bay to the left, thatch bay in front of you and the British virgin islands & and St. John to the right. There are no buildings in front of you and the view of the boats and yachts in the harbor are great. There is a full kitchen with all the utensils and cookware that you would need to cook yourself dinner every night like we did. There's even a barbecue up the hill by the pool that you are able to use. The shower and bathroom are loaded with towels and the bathroom is equipped with everything that you would need from a headache to diarrhea. There's even aloe cooling gel for the sunburns that you will acquire on the beach if you're not careful. The bed is comfortable and plenty of clean sheets. Do not bring snorkel gear it's in cupboard. There"s coolers small coolers big coolers, fishing rods, umbrellas, beach chairs, blow up float chairs, games almost everything you could think of. There's a flat screen tv with full cable, and there's a library of DVDs and CDs. Of course Wifi and even a land phone. You swear you had just walked into a home that someone is still living in. The condo is clean and no problem with anything at all. We spent every morning and evening on the patio or by the pool enjoying life. One day we will buy one of the condos here for our retirement. It's the perfect place to live or vacation. Do not hesitate about booking this I promise you won't be disappointed and the owner was more than accommodating not to mention amazing as she thought of everything you would need for comfort and ease. Bring yourseld and enjoy paradise.

Owner's Response: So glad you both enjoyed your vacation !! I totally agree with you on the view, it is amazing to just sit on balcony and enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning and a nice glass of wine in the evening . The location of Sapphire Village is the best on the Island and the condo complex is so close to everything but still far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the Island and this is why I chose this location . Thank you for the great review and let me know when you would like to return. Carole
