You will enjoy the convenience of being located only a 1/2 mile from American Yacht Harbor and the Village of Red Hook where you can shop, dine, enjoy cocktails or hop on the ferryboat for a short ride over to the Island of St. John. While on St. John, explore the shops and dining in Cruz Bay town or explore the U.S. National Park and beaches on its North Shore.

About Bill Sands

Hello my name is Bill Sands. I have owned vacation rentals on St Thomas for over 15 years and have helped many guest make memories that will last a lifetime! Many of our guests have come back year after year and have become good friends. This property I own with my sister, her husband, and my partner. We recently renovated it, so its the ultimate in style and comfort.

Bill Sands purchased this condo in 2016

Why Bill Sands chose Estate Smith Bay

We purchased this unit because its arguably one of the best locations you will find! What a view ! We are in the St. Vincent Building , which is waterfront with the marina, beach and ocean at your doorsteps. Other units may look appealing, but trust me there is a big difference in the views and location. I am a real estate broker with over 30 years experience and 15 years of vacation home hospitality rental business. This unit is a personally owned and cherished by us. We understand you have many choices in where you stay, but give us a chance to impress you!

Gorgeous View/ spotless Condo! Everything you NEED

  • 5 of 5

Hi! My husband and I honeymooned here! We left 24 hours after our wedding and we landed an amazing place to relax and unwind! From the moment we opened the doors we were blown away. The condo was extremely clean with fully functional kitchen, lovely living area, fresh feeling bathroom/shower area, and comfy bed! We loved all the soft pillows.

The view was the best part! It left us speechless. Nothing we have ever seen before and definitely the hardest part about saying goodbye to this paradise. We do intend on vacationing here again and would choose this lovely condo again if the dates line up!

Be sure to visit secret harbor if possible. It’s only a short taxi ride away (under 10 minutes).

And every day at Sapphire Beach is a dream come true ! Xx

Thank you!!!

Great view, location and steps from beach; Perfect for singles and couples

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 4-night stay here. The condo is well-appointed, very clean, and a great size w/ a balcony. Terrific views of the ocean and walking distance to the beach! Internet was fast. Convenient parking lot. Close to the restaurant Slice and swimming pool. Sapphire Village is in a great location; close to the East End where one of our favorite restaurants XO is located. Owner is very attentive/communicative. Highly recommend.

The combination of fabulous view, and clean/updated/stylish decor makes this condo a win!

  • 5 of 5

This studio condo is perfect for a couple. Everything you need, very clean, comfy bed, updates throughout. Location can’t be better than Sapphire beach on St Thomas for snorkelers and for just sitting and gazing at the colors of the sea. The islands in the distance complete the views. Both St Thomas and St John are in the recovering stage from the hurricanes, but many restaurants are now open on both islands. Skinny Legs is open. Latitude 18 is not. We found Maho Bay is much better now for snorkeling than Leinster due to so much hurricane damage to Leinster. The big turtles were at Maho last week, February 16-23, 2018. The island people are very appreciative of tourists returning to their beautiful Virgin Islands. Don’t be afraid to return!

Great place

The condo was clean and everything is here you need. Nice place. The view was fantastic. There is 2 places to eat onsite and Red Hook is only a short drive away or you can take a cab .

I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It means a lot to us. We care that your experience staying with us was the best! It also means a lot to others who are trying to decide where to stay. They want to here from our guests that the View was Amazing and the location is great! I also appreciate your praise on the cleanliness. The interior design, quality of the furnishings and the cleanliness are important and we share your comments with our housekeeper who takes pride in her work. We look forward to having you back again! Bill

We loved the condo. Very clean and what a view. Every morning we sat on the deck and had coffee and soaked in the view. The condo has everything you need. We went to the grocery store the first night and stocked up. Even though some of the restaurants were not open yet we did not have any trouble finding good places to eat. The island is slowly recovering but we were not disappointed we went. I can't wait to return and see the progress. Bill Sands was so awesome to work with. We will definitely be back to stay at St. Vincent 262.

Owner's Response: Hi Cathy I’m so glad you had a nice vacation. The views and location are the reason we purchased. All the restaurants in Red Hook have reopened except one, and we are excited that Slice in our community is reopening this month!

Our stay was more than perfect, I wish it was a little closer to the beach but that was just me being lazy. It was just like the picture and my husband and I enjoyed our stay. I highly recommend this condo if you want to have peace and quiet. The neighbors were all very friendly.

Thank you Bill Sands!

Simply the best location. Your unit faces eastwardly to take in one of the most gorgeous views you will find anywhere. You are a very short walk within the community to Sapphire Beach which offers some of the best snorkeling on Island. It's a great beach to explore and sunbathe. You are adjacent to the Sapphire Marina for a sunset sail, or jet skiing! Best of all you are only a 1/2 mile from Red Hook where you will find dozens of great restaurants, bars, shopping and groceries. The ferry boat terminal is also located in Red Hook for your excursion over to St John for restaurants, shopping or exploring the US National Park. St John is only a 30 minute ride over to Cruz Bay St John. It's most enjoyable to ride the ferry over for dinner and gaze at the stars on your journey back to St Thomas!
