About Sue

I love vacationing at my Luna Bella Condo in this beautiful & unique eco-resort, it is truly a dream come true! And many of my guests feel the same way, because after staying at Luna Bella, they have also purchased condos here!

I'm also a Realtor in Hollywood Beach Florida, another great vacation destination.

Sue purchased this condo in 2004

Why Sue chose Smith Bay

Our condo in the resort is not just another hotel room at the beach. This is a private gated eco-resort with unparalleled views in a lush tropical setting. We fell in love with the spectacular views and the unique architecture of the whole property - very unlike a typical vacation condo. And we love the split level layout of our condo, perfectly designed so that there are spectacular ocean views from every room! One day we hope to retire to our dream condo in the USA Caribbean!

What makes this condo unique

You'll love walking the winding trails in the 15 acre nature preserve and encountering hummingbirds, iguanas, and other wildlife. Or relaxing on your balcony, watching the sunrise over one of the most beautiful views in the Caribbean. There are 3 pools that are never crowded, a restaurant- a funky beach/bar grill right in the water and an open air gourmet seafood restaurant up the hill. There are 2 beaches on the property, and just 3 minutes from Coki Beach / Coral World and Lindqvist Beach. And we're only 5 minutes from Redhook where there are plenty of restaurants/bars, and the ferries to St John and the British Virgin Islands! It's a very romantic place and we have many couples honeymooning and celebrating their anniversaries! There's also a concierge desk in the lobby to help you make reservations for boating, scuba, snorkeling and dinner throughout the island! You'll want to return again and again!

We had an absolutely great time at the condo in St. Thomas. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We will be returning as there is

no other place we'd rather stay on St. Thomas.

Thanks again,

Chad and Sandie Morgan

The balcony view was spectacular.

  • 4 of 5

The property was neat but was not as clean as we expected. We were given two small bath towels for the week, and there was no provision for hanging wet swim suits/towels. Know that you will need to supply your own toilet paper as well. Thankfully we brought our own beach towels, which we learned should have been provided. There was some structural damage from the storms, which did not change our stay, except for a large slat in the bedroom window that was missing. We reached out to the appropriate person for something to hang clothes on, which she acknowledged but never provided. We would have been happy with a string. No towels can be hung over the balcony. The bed in the bedroom was okay for sleeping but the pullout couch needs to be replaced, as one adult had a very uncomfortable stay on it.

Providing the cleaning, and pullout couch get remedied, this was a unit that I would recommend, for the incredible view,s and ease of transportation. The unit is at the top of a hill, so if you can walk okay, there are trails that are very pleasant walks around the property or to efficient local transportation. There are 3 pools on the property for relaxing. I give it a 4 for the view!

Owner's Response: Dear Susan, I'm so glad you enjoyed the beautiful view at Luna Bella. One of our guests said the view compares to the most spectacular views he has seen in all his travels around the world! My top priority is ensuring my guests have a great vacation. In my welcome email, along with the access instructions is the contact info for me and my property manager, with specific instructions to call us if anything is wrong. I don't know why you didn't contact either of us. I just spoke with my maid (who's been with me for many years and always goes above and beyond) and she always leaves 2 bath towels and 1 beach towel per person, and 2 rolls of toilet paper. On the morning of arrival she goes back to ensure that all is ok (just to make sure nothing was overlooked) and to bring a welcome bottle of rum & coke for your arrival. Although this isn't a hotel that provides daily maid service, extra towels and maid service are available for an extra charge - but you must contact my property manager with the phone number provided. As far as wet bathing suits go, guests just hang them over the shower bar or patio chairs to dry - it's not a problem. And although sofabeds aren't the most comfortable option, it's convenient and cost effective for guests looking to save money compared to renting a 2 bedroom unit or a whole other condo. Alternatively, an airbed is available. If there are any problems, a quick call to me or my property manager will fix it immediately. Why wait until your trip is over? Anyway, I'm so glad you enjoyed your vacation and the beautiful views! I can't wait for my next visit to Luna Bella!

Amazing vacation home for small family.

  • 5 of 5

Luna Bella was the perfect unit for my two daughters and myself. The views were spectacular and even though the beach and restaurant were quite a hike down the hill, we loved walking the property. Resort staff were super friendly. The unit was very well furnished and the bed was very comfortable. The sofa bed might be a little rough for an adult but was fine for my 11 year old daughter. We loved the snorkeling gear! My only suggestion would be to bring your own beach towels if you want something other than standard bath towels on the beach. Thank you Sue for the use of your wonderful condo! ~Kayja, Olivia, and Willow,
