CARIBBEAN FLAIR…..WHY STAY WITH US???…

The moment you walk into our condo, you will be awestruck by the magnificent views. That's what our guests and friends tell us.

Our decor is serene and calming yet playful enough to reflect the island colors that make St. Thomas a special place to vacation.

You'll look forward to waking each morning to tea or coffee made in the french press or coffee maker...your choice.

After a day of fun in the sun, relax...or take a nap on the sectional sofa that has views of the gorgeous waters and tropical islands.

Finish the book you brought with you all while enjoying the comfortable breezes on the verandah and the soothing sounds of the palm trees swaying in the wind and waves lapping ashore.

EAT IN….RELAX….DINE OUT….

If you choose to stay in for the evening, the fully equipped kitchen will make cooking a breeze and alfresco dining promises to make up for the efforts in the kitchen.

Feeling lazy or deserve a break from the cooking?

* Enjoy dinner at Slice VI Craft Pizza & Cafe next to our lower pool...it's just steps away from your door.

* Enjoy casual beach side dinner and/or drinks at Sapphire Beach Bar, just minutes from our condo.

Dining out in close-by Red Hook is always a great option. You'll find fun t-shirt & short appropriate options at Fish Tails and Duffy's Love Shack plus many others as well as more intimate upscale options at Pesce and XO Bistro.

ISLAND HOP! WHY NOT!!

What about dinner on St. John? From our door, it is less than a 20 minute trip. Makes a nice evening 'off island' you might say.

From St. John, the views of St. Thomas at night are simply magical!

GO, GO, GO…..ARE YOU DRIVEN TO DO IT?

Have energy to burn? Rent jet skis, go parasailing, charter a fishing or sailboat with private captain and create your very own island tour...all from the marina below Sea~N~Islands.

We could go on for ever with fun and exciting things to do so really there is no use to look any further.

Book Sea~N~Islands and let your warm Caribbean memories begin !

About Mike Reed, Owner

We thoroughly enjoy renting out our Caribbean get-a-way Sea~N~Islands --- largely because of wonderful guests we've hosted. You're next....why not? In addition to our wonderful Canadian guests we've just loved having our New England, Mid-West, Carolina, Florida, California and even our Cape Town South Africa guests come and 'warm their souls' in the Caribbean.

We're two semi-retired bankers who sail the Virgin Islands as often as we can. We just love Marina Cay, Anegada, Bitter End, Jost Van Dyke and Norman island. We always find time to enjoy time our condo before or after a BVI sailing trip.

Mike Reed, Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mike Reed, Owner chose Estate Smith Bay

The views are what we came for and the views are what we deliver. A constant 'island show' takes place each day in watching the sail and fishing boats pass by, the palms sway in the breeze and the waves coming ashore. Our building is very convenient to the upper pool… consider it your private oasis as many times you'll be the only ones there! In seconds you can be back in the condo for lunch, freshen your drink or take a much deserved nap!

Sapphire Village has THE prime location on St. Thomas. Just 25 minutes from the airport and boasts stunning views, nice breezes and close proximity to world class beaches, fabulous restaurants and popular water activities.

What makes this condo unique

Sea~N~Islands is full of amenities not often found in a typical rental condo -- retreat inspired king master with a door for privacy, premium furniture, fully stocked kitchen (plates, utensils, glasses etc.) and all the beach accessories one should need!!

Guests have described us as the most complete and well organized condo they've stayed in. We try hard to please!!

All of the furnishings are top quality and inspired by our travels around the islands. Local art, exciting colors, focus on comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guest book: "This is by far the most user friendly condo I have stayed in. Laminated directions to points of interest, snorkel gear, coolers, backpack chairs, scissors. The decor is great! Walking distance to harbor & shops & great fun eating places. Plus 2 right here! Great snorkeling right here. (Saw flounder, eel, grouper, plus all the usuals.) Flowers and trees are gorgeous. All the lizards and birds are fun."

Paradise Overlooking the Caribbean!

  • 5 of 5

If I could have given more stars, I WOULD have!! I just returned from a week in this unit, celebrating a "big" birthday! This unit is unbelievable! Usually in a rental, you find it furnished in "early garage sale" but this unit has only THE most high end products, furnishings & decorative touches you will ever have the pleasure of enjoying! It's like being upgraded to the presidential suite when you weren't expecting it! I can't think of a thing I needed that wasn't there! Mixing bowls, measuring cups & spoons, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, containers for left overs, cookware that does NOT make you believe you will die from the non-stick finish that is coming off, lovely bar ware, blender... it is all here along with everything needed to enjoy the beach like chairs, towels, a canvas bag, coolers. The bed really IS heavenly and I slept like a log! The owner was SO helpful with info before arrival. It could not have gone smoother! Thanks for a fabulous memory of a wonderful birthday! I can't WAIT to come back!

Owner's Response: Sandy, We know how special this trip was for you and are happy to hear you were so pleased with Sea~N~Islands!! Knowing you have stayed in several units in other complexes near Sapphire Beach and reading this review tells us we "hit the mark" with our renovation. We have found the little extras just help to make a vacation seem like home only in a wonderful caribbean setting! Thank you for comparing us to a Presidential Suite!!! Love it! So glad the Westin Heavenly mattress delivered it's promise allowing you to rest well during your stay. We'd love to have you back again and appreciate your kind words and comments about our condo. Mike & Todd

This was by far the best stay, best expirence, and most accommodating rental we have stayed in!

The rental had absolutely everything and more that we needed to make our trip great. Melise and Mike were amazing hosts, always answering our questions when we asked and gave us great information about places to go on the island.

Would highly recommend this rental for anyone and will deffinetly come back for a second stay.

Thank you so much!

overwhelmingly marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

There is absolutely nothing negative to be said about this rental. What I did appreciate, in addition to the cleanliness, the information packet, the map, the view, the beach equipment, the quiet surrounding area, the pool, etc., was the totally quiet air conditioners-no audible cycling.

Perfect spot for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

If you stay anywhere in St. Thomas, this needs to be the spot. It sits steps from the beach. It is a one minute car ride to Red Hook, where there is lots of shopping, restaurants and the ferry to St. John is also right there. Mike and Todd will make your stay so easy. There is all the amenities of home there...anything you can think of. They have also provided scuba gear, beach chairs, towels, beach bag and cooler. The decor is gorgeous. They also provide you tips and info for the best restaurants, shopping, etc. The owners are super organized and I can totally appreciate that. We will most definitely be back. I would also recommend any friends and family to stay here as well. Absolutely perfect.

Owner's Response: Thanks Allison! Every guest is special to us and those celebrating a wedding it extra special as we know you searched for the perfect place to enjoy your special occasion. Thank you for choosing us and thank you for the very nice words. We like providing Snorkeling Gear, beach chairs, beach towels, floating noodles, coolers etc. as that's what a beach condo should offer all guests. I know some don't and we're very happy you found those amenities helpful in enjoying all that St. Thomas offers. Looking forward to your next stay with us. Our Best. Mike, Todd, Melise

Paradise Revisited

  • 5 of 5

Look no further, this place is perfect! We just returned from our second stay at this condo and could not have been more pleased. The unit is spotless, beautifully furnished, has every possible amenity...plus a view to die for. The owners provide a binder containing all sorts of information on attractions, directions to beaches and restaurant write-ups. Truly a wealth of info - well worth the read.

Beautiful views and great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! It was everything we wanted it to be, and more. Mike and Melise were so helpful to go above and beyond to make sure we knew how to get around the island, which beaches to visit, where to grocery shop, and the best places to eat. This was our first time visiting and their advice helped us to relax and enjoy everything. When we return, we will certainly stay here again.
