It's time to relax....
Our Private Caribbean Pool Villa is Serenity. A private place for two to relax & rejuvenate, and just a short 3-5 minute walk to famous Sapphire beach.
Besides having 1200 sq ft of privacy, peace and your own salt water pool; this well-kept villa is complete with a generous size bedroom with King bed and lots of closets, garden-style step down shower, full kitchen, and an eating & living area with newer Caribbean style furniture. You have a pool view from every room inside (except the shower).
We are part of a small condominium complex that is run like a boutique hotel, so your rental includes
*Full Service Front Desk/Concierge
*Mid week housekeeping for stays over 4 days
*Complimentary snorkel gear
*Exchangeable Pool Towels
*Welcome breakfast basket (upon arrival)
*Small bottle of rum
*Also on site is our Restaurant, a fully Licensed Open-air style restaurant. (currently closed, due to the hurricane damage)
Our Villa is located on the beautiful and quieter east side of the island, and is part of the Pavilions & Pools hotel complex. You can watch the sun rise while having coffee on the pool deck, or if you are so inclined, walk down and join a yoga class on Sapphire beach (usually) at 7 am. And beautiful Sapphire beach has great swimming and snorkeling at any time. There is also has a dive shop and beach bar & grill right on Sapphire beach.
Sapphire Marina has charter boats available to book for excursions to the other USVI & the BVI islands. They also have wave runners available. Go Island hopping, bar hopping, coral reef hopping to snorkel with the marine life.... so many things to do and so little time to do it all!
Then there’s the great little town of Red Hook. You can catch the ferry to St. John. There are also many charter boats and yachts available for hire. From island hopping & snorkeling, to deep sea fishing, shopping, dining, groceries and night life, you are sure to find it.
Charlotte Amalie, is considered the downtown of the island and it’s the hub of activity. You’ll find the cruise ships, charter yachts, world class shopping and dining.
The northern part of the island is where you’ll find world famous Magens Bay beach, and Mahogany Run golf course.
Part of the islands charm, are the Safari buses that go in one direction in a loop from Charlotte Amalie, to the east end and Red Hook and back.
Another piece of the islands charm is saying Good morning, Good afternoon, and Good night in both greeting and departure. If you remember to use these greetings, in return you’ll usually receive good service, a friendly smile, and even lively conversation.
Whether you’re coming to the island to shop, seek adventure, or lay on the beaches and swim in the ocean, or try and do it all; at the end of the day, your own place is waiting. To welcome you back to privacy, quiet and relaxation. Refresh yourself in the private pool and dry off in the warm evening breezes with a cool beverage in hand. Ahh, Life is good on the island!
The beauty of the Caribbean is everything everyone says it is. World class beaches, shopping, history, ocean adventures and boating, it’s all true. The cosmopolitan island of St. Thomas offers all of it, and more. And this Villa offers you the private and calm side of it all.
So why wait, when you can enjoy the warmth of the Caribbean sun and breezes at your own Private Caribbean Pool Villa. And escape from the everyday.

About Jim & Pat
We are a hard working couple from just south of Detroit Michigan. Born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, we were looking for an amazing warm Caribbean spot to get away from the cold winters. St. Thomas, USVI hit the spot !
Jim & Pat purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Jim & Pat chose Estate Smith Bay
The first time we stayed on island, we stayed on the east side near Pavilions & Pools. We've had great times on Sapphire , Lindquist and Coki beaches; dining and hanging out in Red hook. We've stayed downtown, but there’s no beach and lots of people. The north side is too quiet. We like the east side much better. Fewer people, and more fun. Our Villa at Pavilions & Pools, is one of the few villas with a sea view & view of St. John island. It is perfectly suited for couples who prefer privacy, yet its only a very short walk to Sapphire beach, has it's own on-site restaurant, and is close to town. It’s the perfect location for everything you might want to do.
What makes this Condo unique
There are many unique benefits to our Villa. It has a larger living space than properties right on the beach, yet is still very near the beach. With its own private pool, spacious bedroom, separate kitchen, living and dining area, this is more of a private home rather than a hotel, but with a concierge and restaurant on-site.

Nice and clean
We had a great time and we will be back
Hi jonathan, Thanks for the 5 star review! We're glad you had fun and found our place to be nice & clean! We look forward to hosting your next trip to St. Thomas!
Location could not have been better. Don't understand the previous posts about the "walk to the beach" not being what they thought it would be. It is a 5 minute walk to a beautiful, not crowded, very relaxed beach. Villa was comfortable and perfect! We weren't there that much except to sleep and swim but having your own pool was absolutely amazing. Donetta at the front desk was wonderful in orienting us to the island. And the onsite restaurant, Lime........ I have to say the previous posts about this place are what sealed the deal for us and everyone was spot on. Amazing! The owners, atmosphere and food, just absolutely unforgettable. Can't wait to go back. And thanks to Pat, the villa owner, for answering all my questions promptly and thanks to all the previous renters who gave tips on the island especially about the safari buses. Great experience!
Hi Kelly thanks for the great review! We are happy to know that you enjoyed our place and found it to be exactly as described and reviewed! Thank you also, for clarifying the walk to Sapphire beach. I’ll definitely pass on your compliments to Donette and the folks at Lime restaurant! We would be honored to host your next vacation to STT. Hope to hear from you again, soon.!
We stay at this villa when we visit STT. We just love it. The place is clean, comfortable, & close to the beach.
We'll be back.
Thanks Pat & Jim
Excellent space. Great location. Perfect place for a private getaway.
My wife and I spent a week at this Villa for our honeymoon. First, Pat and Jim were excellent owners. Due to issues with our flights, we arrived late, after the office closed. They called ahead and made arrangements for us to pick up keys later to ensure we didn't have trouble getting into our room. The location is great. Very short walk to Sapphire Beach. Barely a 5 minute walk. Very close to Red Hook. The on-site restaurant, Lime, is a great addition to the location. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The flowers are constantly frequented by hummingbirds. Private pool is a great bonus. I would highly recommend this Villa to anyone looking for a private getaway that is an excellent alternative to resorts. Very affordable in comparison to other locations. Highly recommend.
Thank you for the compliments Mr. & Mrs. H. We are always happy to help in any way we can. We’re glad that you enjoyed our place & that you had a great honeymoon. Also happy that you liked Lime! It really is a fun place. Tapas style restaurant with excellent food & beverages. And a great alternative to cooking-in or heading into Red Hook. Thanks again for being great guests, and we hope to be able to host your next visit to St. Thomas!
The staff and owners are top shelf. Very friendly, very accommodating. Pool onsite is awesome!
Nowhere else on St. Thomas were we treated better than our villa. Jim & Pat are great owners and made us feel at home from minute one of booking the villa. Donette was very helpful at front desk and the restaurant on site LIME , was the best. Denise a great hostess/owner, chef Anthony and Allison were friendly and fun. Lime had best food and value with customer service and attention to detail on the island. Will recommend to everyone we see and when we come back, we will be going nowhere else.
Scott & Cindy: thank you for the lovely review. It’s great to hear that Donette was very helpful, and we’re glad you enjoyed LIME. We’ll pass on the compliments. You are both very kind people and we would be honored to have you back anytime!. Warm regards, Pat & Jim
Can't beat what you get for the price!
First of all- I was impressed by the quality of communication from the owners before we even arrived. They are very nice and helpful people! Thanks Pat & Bill :)
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Pavillions & Pools #106. The staff at the hotel were friendly and we have no complaints. They have FREE snorkeling equipment you can rent so we definitely took advantage of that! The current restaurant on the property, Lime was excellent! It's a small space but the food (tapas style) was interesting and delicious! You feel like you're in the middle of a tranquil rain forest. Loved the ambience, very romantic.
It was nice to have a full kitchen and grill available. We used Fresh Foods VI and had our fridge and counter stocked with pre selected food items befOre we arrived. It was a little pricey but we expected that. Food on the island is just pretty expensive overall it seems whether it's delivered, bought at grocery store or purchased from a restaurant.
I read some complaints from other past guests about the walk to the beach being "not what they expected", well for being in USVI, minutes from the beautiful Saphire Beach, for under $200/night (and having your own private pool), I don't know what you expected!! It's about a 5 min walk down the road and through a gravel type parking lot to get to Sapphire Beach. It's not the most scenic walk (though you may encounter some local chickens/rooster or lizards on the way), but again for the price you really can't beat what you get and the overall location.
Beach is beautiful and a MUST! Perfect for relaxing, swimming and snorkeling. There is even a bar/grill right on the beach. We met some very nice locals. Also, we spent a full day in St John and that was a truly amazing experience. Red hook is very close by (under 1 mile) which is where you can catch a boat over.
There is a busy road right on the other side of the resort. Con: you can hear traffic noise (tip-listen to some music while outside and you'll never know); Pro: the main road right outside of the complex has busses driving by all the time that you can jump on and it will take you to town for $1. There is a huge wall blocking the road from the resort so you can't see any cars, just hear them. Its a very private and beautiful setting overall.
I can't stress enough how great of a deal this place is! PRIVATE POOL!! That's enough right there to bring us back! :) We thouroughly enjoyed our time here in St Thomas at P&P and will be back!!
Hi Lauren, Thank you for the fantastic review! We are so happy that you both had an amazing time! and that you found our place to be a good value and the location convenient. We would be honoured to have you as our guests again. Thank you.
