Beyond believe!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week in December for a family reunion, 8 kids and 6 adults, 3 generations from Denmark. This review is so hard to write, as it is so difficult to put words on our feelings about this place!! This is the closest you will get to paradise. This place is so extraordinary and the location is a 20 on a scale of 10.

We had Monica to prepare and cook breakfast and dinner for all of us everyday. She is just such a joy and her food was so nice tasting. We rented a driver and his bus (Edmund) through the owner (could easily accommodate our family of 14) to drive us around the island, when we wanted to, and Bob the facilitator, was just so helpful whenever we needed him to help.

This is THE vacation, you will never want to end!!!!

It is so hard to describe this place without becoming sounding exaggerated, but as we all agreed upon arrival: Once bitten by the Sand Dollar bug, vacations are never gonna be the same anymore.... unfortunately!!!

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We rented Sand Dollar Estate recently. A total of 7 couples spent the week there. Everyone had such a great time. Other than a couple rainy days... there is nothing I can really complain about. The owner Suzanne was very helpful with suggestions and contact info for excursions. Bob, the house manager, was helpful with anything while we were there. He arranged transportation back and forth to the airport. He also went to the store and stocked the entire kitchen with food and beverage before we arrived. And made multiple visits to the store for us while we were there. Monica cooked for all of us while we were there. Great food for a very reasonable cost. It's not easy to cook for 14 people... and she did a great job!!! We did so much ...... we played in the ocean, laid on the beach, laid by the pool, got massages in the spa, had great conversations on the deck overlooking Megan's Bay, played in the pool, we did a little kayaking, played a round of golf at Mahogany Run, we chartered New Horizons II for the day, went shopping downtown... etc, etc, etc.

What an amazing week. We were all sad to come home. I would like to thank everybody at Sand Dollar Estate.

Beyond amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husband and my 50th birthdays at Sand Dollar. What a fantastic place. The property is beyond amazing. The beach is superb!! Each of the bedrooms feels like its own private suite and the rest of the house is so comfortable for everyone to enjoy time together. Bob is great, always willing to help with any planning you need. Make sure you have Monica cook. She made the whole experience complete. Andrine and her staff kept the house so clean. We HIGHLY recommend Sand Dollar. It is the best place to stay in St. Thomas. We will be returning for a future stay. Thank you Suzanne and Steve for an unforgettable trip.

The best venue for a PRIVATE beach wedding

  • 5 of 5

My new wife and I wanted to be married on the sand on a beach with beautiful clear water. We looked at hundreds of options, locations and scenarios. We concluded St. Thomas would work best for us because we were going to have many friends and family join us. St. Thomas had a major airport and minimal requirements for entry and exit. The island is small enough that everyone could get around very easily. We looked at many options such as public beaches all the way up the Ritz Carlton Resort. Ultimately we found Sand Dollar Estate while looking at rental houses. This is the ultimate wedding venue. We shared the cost of the house with 16 of our wonderful friends. Even after all of the traditional wedding expenses we were able to have the wedding of the century (according to our guests) for much less hassle and expense than ALL other alternatives.

The house is well maintained, clean and very well equipped. Bob and Monica are very gracious hosts and ambassadors to the island. If you simply follow one rule on all of these islands you will receive warm and gracious treatment. Say good morning, good afternoon and good evening to everyone before you say anything else. Otherwise they will consider YOU rude. We bonded with Bob and Monica and shared heartfelt hugs upon our departure. There is not one thing that this staff would not do to make our week perfect. They have done enough weddings at this house to be very well versed in what is needed to coordinate with wedding planners, caterers, bands and the like. We would not have changed one single thing about our experience. We would also like to mention that all of our dealings prior to arrival with the home owners was fantastic. They are wonderful people with impeccable taste and the home and our experience was truly a reflection of their behind the scene efforts. We will rent this house again with our friends in the future. Normally we would say one stop in a place like this is enough so we can explore other homes or places. The location, home, staff and owners make this a repeat visit destination for us.

Amazing! Above our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We recently held our office annual leadership conference at Sand Dollar Estate in St. Thomas, USVI. It turned out to be the perfect venue for our staff, with its 9 bedroom suites and multiple areas for breakout sessions and private conversations. The exterior area was well suited to after dinner lounging and socializing. The place was great for our staff to interact and bond in an incredibly beautiful and relaxed setting.

We hired Monica and her niece to prepare our meals. The food was always prepared on time and always delicious. Bob, the property manager, was friendly and helpful with any and all of our needs without being underfoot. Our deep gratitude to Suzanne, the owner. She helped us organize all of the activities prior to our arrival. With her help, we were able to enjoy a well deserved working vacation.

There was more than enough space for all of the staff members to stay comfortably, and not feel like they were on top of each other. The furnishings were clean and stylish, and being only 50ft from the private beach was a great bonus. It was probably the most beautiful beach any of us have ever set foot upon.

I would definitely return to Sand Dollar with my extended family.

Luxury Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was indeed luxurious! We decided to renew our vows at Sand Dollar. We had read all the reviews and spoken with some of the previous guests, so we knew that we wouldn't be disappointed. However, what we did not anticipate was that we would feel so at home, truly a home away from home.

We decided to treat our family and friends to a more private Caribbean vacation. It was quiet and relaxing with all of the amenities of any 5 star resort, not to mention our own private beach. The entire staff took such a good care of us, very professional and they took such pride in their work. Thanks to Monica who could cook up anything we asked, no matter what the request. Bob seemed to always be around when we needed help, but he did not get in the way of our relaxation. I am very picky when it comes to cleanliness, both the main house and cottage were spotless when we arrived. Andrine did a spectacular job keeping the home spotless and fresh during our stay.

We hired Laura of Passion Fruit Chefs to cater the party. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. We had the ceremony on the private beach. We could not asked for a better place to renew our vows.

We planned out our excursions during the day, but we always looked forwarded to coming back home to the villa. Thanks also to Suzanne, the owner, who was always just a phone call or email away. We cannot wait for our next trip to the paradise called Sand Dollar!
