About Hong Phan

We are from New Orleans, LA and have enjoyed traveling to the Caribbean tremendously. The beaches, parks, culture, and people have made St Thomas our favorite Caribbean island.

Hong Phan purchased this condo in 2005

Why Hong Phan chose Estate Smith Bay

We discovered Sapphire Beach from our cruise to the island many years ago. The beach has spectacular views of St John and the British VI and it is right next to the town of Red Hook.

What makes this condo unique

We have since renovated the bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom. We offer free wifi to all of our guests. Thanks for visiting our condo and have fun visiting the Virgin Islands.

Beautiful Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a 7 day stay at Sapphire Beach in Hong's condo. It was a truly amazing trip. The condo is exceptionally located right on the beach with beautiful views of the water. The beach itself is well maintained and free chairs are included in the stay. The cruise patrons stay farther down the beach so the area in front of the condos is almost empty with plenty of space to spread out. The pool was nice and clean but the bar appears to have been closed indefinitely, but there is a bar/food towards the public side of Sapphire. Parking is very easy and the condos itself are gated - we rented a car so we could explore the island. I would recommend going further into the island to do any grocery shopping (Plaza Extra) as the shops in Red Hook are expensive - but they are very close with only a 2-3 min drive. We are at a few places close by (Senor Pizza we thought was great and the pizza was huge). The only word of caution is if you are a light sleeper we would recommend earplugs - we had some college students above us that stayed up late and you can hear all the noises through the walls and ceilings (mostly chairs/furniture moving) and there are numerous roosters on the property that begin there day around 4 am haha - but after some earplugs we slept soundly through the night. The condo is well equipped and has all the items needed from pots and pans to linens and towels (including 2 beach towels) and snorkeling equipment. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a truly unforgettable vacation!

We feel very fortunate to have found this incredible place. Looking forward to trip #6!

Beautiful Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a 10 day vacation in Hong's lovely condo. The location is perfect! Directly on one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen. We spent most of our time lounging on the beach with our books and swimming in the warm blue water. The "Cabana boys", Gabriel and Scott (beach chair providers) were so friendly and full of information. Please thank them for us. They made our vacation that much more enjoyable. The Banana Cabana snack shack has wonderful hamburgers, sandwiches and drinks. Located right next to the beach and our condo. Red Hook is a 5 minute drive and has restaurants and grocery stores. We took the car ferry to St. John and it was gorgeous! We also enjoyed having the restaurant and bar located a short walk away at the Sapphire Beach Marina Resort on the hill. Just wish it wasn't so far away from us here in Washington State, although it was well worth the 14 hour trip to get here. Thanks for sharing your condo with us.

Visit #4

  • 5 of 5

Just returned today from our 4th visit to Hong's condo. Once again we had an amazing time. The condo unit is very clean, well kept and maintained. Plenty of room for myself, husband and two daughters. We feel it's one of the best locations available. My family looks forward to eating breakfast on the balcony every morning. The view is incredible. Great start to the day. Spent the majority of each day lounging on the beach and in the water. Great place to snorkel. Love the short drive into Red Hook for dinner in the evening. Plenty of activities close by to enjoy. Thank you Hong for another perfect vacation!

A great place for a mother/daughter trip!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this unit based on the positive reviews and the responsiveness of the owner. Everything you read is true! This a nice unit in a perfect location on the east end of St. Thomas. The condo was comfortable and well-equipped. Any questions we had, we were able to email Hong (or we could have texted or called) and he was quick to respond. Building B is in a great location, beautiful beach, great snorkeling. We spent a lot time out on the patio (with two lounge chairs and a table and four chairs) because the view was just gorgeous (the beach, the water, the islands nearby). We were a five minute drive from Red Hook where were were able to eat, go for a drink, find a pharmacy and grocery store, and take the ferry to St. John. The price, the location, the comfort, the view, the atmosphere, the amenities, and the contact with the owner cannot be beat. I would highly recommend this unit and look forward to coming again with my husband (maybe even our kids!).
