About Eamon Guilfoyle

Live in Ireland and like to get away to the sun as often as possible.

Eamon Guilfoyle purchased this studio in 2004

Why Eamon Guilfoyle chose Estate Smith Bay

Came to work in St Thomas as a Scuba Instructor in 2003 and loved the place. Have regularly returned as St Thomas is a magical place.

What makes this studio unique

The view is spectacular. Lots of Islands in the distance and the blue water just make it for me.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. Glad you had a great time. I do try to describe the Condo as you should expect to find it. Sapphire Beach is one of the nicest beaches is St Thomas and probably best for snorkeling. Come back again.

Great getaway for 2 in perfect location for exploring St. Thomas & St. John

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this nice efficiency condo unit at Sapphire Village. We found the location perfect for being able to explore eastern St. Thomas and taking the ferry to St. John. We did not even have to rent a car. The beach and facilities at Sapphire Beach were only a pleasant walk down the hill with great swimming, snorkeling and a beach bar. There were amazing views from the balcony! Sapphire Village is only 1/2 mile from Red Hook where there are plenty of restaurants and 2 grocery stores and also the ferry to St. John, so very convenient. We also made use of the poolside grill and borrowed DVDs and books from the Sapphire Village office during our stay.

No TV or internet as advertised.

Motorcycle was not allowed on the condo complex seemingly unknown to owner or property manager. Very inconvenient. Dangerous lack of lighting on stairway to lower floor of building. Otherwise clean apartment nice view and beach with basic facilities still recovering from hurricanes.

Great base camp for a weeks stay.

  • 5 of 5

Nice place to call home while on the island. Has all your basic amenities needed. We slept and made breakfast at condo and it worked well. Good location with nice beach. Not a Hilton style place but no where near the cost of that. Very reasonable cost. Stores and attractions close by. Driving takes a little getting used to on island. Enjoy!!

Felt like home

  • 4 of 5

We walked into a super clean studio with awesome views! Loved the location and amenities at Sapphire Village. Slice has excellent pizza which is a 2 minute walk from condo. Red Hook is less than 5 minite drive Would definitely stay again and hated to leave. If you love to snorkel its a good beach for that as well. Eamon is very responsive and gave great advice about the area.
