It does not get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a group of friends at the Sand Dollar Estate March 7 to 14, 2015. Let me start by saying - it does not get any better than this place. There is absolutely no other place I would rather stay. The beach which the house sites above is perfection - private and beautiful. Definitely the nicest beach in the area, and it is all yours!

From start to finish this trip was unreal. When I first contacted Suzanne, she was always quick and very helpful. She is THE most accommodating/best host by far! She knows where to go, what to do, what not to do & all things in between, and her onsite manager, Bob, is extraordinarily accommodating and responsive. He even went to town for my husband and brought a gorgeous bouquet for my birthday.

From the time we arrived until we left, everything was perfect. The Villa was gorgeous - just like the picture. Every room is super nice and private, plenty of private bathrooms, and the fridge was stocked as planned. The location, staff, amenities, and food was great and the sun was shining.

Rent a boat and go fishing and to Jost Van Dyke or Virgin Gorda. Take the Ferry to St. John. Our favorite restaurant was the Old Stone Farmhouse, so romantic, great food and ambiance. The shopping is great too, but you really never want to leave Sand Dollar. It is a wonderful place to call home and provides every amenity that anyone could need to make for a great vacation.

I will absolutely be back Sand Dollar, as soon as I can!

Trip and wedding of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I stayed at the Sand Dollar Estate along with 12 other family members for our week long wedding extravaganza! My husband and I stayed in the Little Sand Dollar and the rest of the family stayed in main estate. We had an excellent experience staying at the Sand Dollar Estate. From the moment we started the research on where to stay in St. Thomas to coming home to find a lovely wedding gift from the house owners - we had a seamless and wonderful experience. Suzanne, the house owner is attentive and responsive; she was an incredible resource to have. I planned our wedding completely remote and never have visited St. Thomas - certain aspects were challenging... however, having Suzanne, the estate's helpful website, and using experienced vendors that knew the property were key to my success.

The property is breath-taking, the house is well maintained despite the harsh ocean air and wind it endures year round. The property manager, Bob is wonderful. He is there when you need him - but his presence is not intrusive. Monica and Edmund drove our group around all week. They were responsive to our texts and always early for pick-ups. Monica even cooked for us a few times, I would describe her food is comfort food and delicious. We also recommend to hire Edmund to bring your intoxicated guests safely home...the price is right and they were flexible and easy to work with.

The property served as a beautiful backdrop for our wedding. The Little Sand Dollar was the perfect place to get ready and have that privacy the newlyweds appreciate! This property was made for entertaining and hosting an event - down to the mini outdoor kitchen with sink, ice-maker, and fridge to the spacious layout all the way to the lower deck's gazebo.

Some information around the wedding: we had 63 guests attend the wedding and the space was ample for dancing and socializing - overall the property has a nice flow. The dinner was set up on the upper deck; cocktail hour and the reception was on the lower pool deck; the ceremony was on the beach.

Overall our entire group made up of very different personalities, all loved the estate - they were impressed, wow'd and delighted to stay at such a remarkable property. The Sand Dollar Estate is a crowd pleaser with an excellent staff to boot!

We hope to rent the Sand Dollar again for a future anniversary, family reunion.... really anything to justify a trip.

It Just Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!

  • 5 of 5

We were at Sand Dollar Estate the last week of January 2015. We had a group of 9 couples vacationing together and we had a blast. The home, our view, the beach and outstanding service were beyond our expectations. It just doesn't get any better than this. This was a trip of a lifetime for our group and everyone is ready to go back. Suzanne was fantastic in helping us plan our trip by suggesting things to do and providing contact information. Bob, was over the top with his service, always being there for whatever we needed. We highly recommend Monica, she prepared our meals and they were excellent. Andrine along with Bob made certain our home was clean and our beds made. Whether you are traveling with a group or family, you won't find a nicer place to stay than Sand Dollar Estate in St. Thomas.

Just as beautiful as remembered

  • 5 of 5

My first vacation at Sand Dollar was in Jan 2010 with a group of 14 people including 2 friends who married on the beach there. It was a wedding to remember and the staff at Sand Dollar helped to make it so.

Five years later, Jan 10th, 2015, most of our original group returned to enjoy the paradise of Magens Bay. Now a party of 17 friends, thanks to the addition of 2 more bedroom suites to Little Sand Dollar since our last trip. They are very nice with their own deck, beach and hammock below. Some other great additions are the massage room and the big raft anchored right off Sand Dollar beach.

We found everything as lovely as we remembered. Bob helped us with anything we needed including getting groceries stocked for us. He lives nearby and is a phone call away. He even found some duct tape for us when we needed it.

Although we had a large group, the house felt huge; there is room to spread out in every direction and the views are unbelievable. On nights we cooked at the house, there was plenty of seating for all. We did not hire a cook since most of us enjoy cooking. We found everything we needed in the kitchen. If I were to propose any suggestion for improvement, I would say add another washer/dryer but on second thought, it's vacation so who needs to do laundry?

The beach is just the right size and an easy swim out to the big raft. On several days we were adventurous and walked through the water to Magens Bay Beach Bar for lunch and a Painkiller. Don't stray far from the shoreline and it can be an easy walk even for short people. One day of our trip we spent visiting St. John and another taking a snorkeling/boat trip to Jost Van Dyke. But as several of our friends mentioned, you could spend the whole week without leave Sand Dollar and have the best vacation ever.

To sum it up: Suzanne is a dream to work with, the location can't be beat on St. Thomas and the house and staff are awesome. I feel lucky to have spent a week there and don't think it will be the last last.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time returning to this beautiful palace. We could not have been happier all the way to Bob picking us up at the airport, to him doing all our shopping for the first couple days! He is the cats meow!! The weather there is guaranteed to be beautiful. The home is the most cozy and comfortable. The beach is a delight. There is no need to go anywhere when you are there, from the Kayaks, to the massive floating lounger. But we did go to the zip line and the gondola. Kayaked to Megans Bay is highly recommended. Then there is the owners, Suzanne and her hubby Steve, whom we have not personally met but they are the most wonderful people, making sure you have all you need. Bob just rocks, we have spent many hours talking with him and learning new stories. He has so many! We treated him with dinner and breakfast. He is so well deserved. We also had Passion Fruit Chef catered a wonderful mani dinner. They were delightfully fun gals. I do not have enough adjectives to describe this touch of heaven. Hope to return!!

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!!!
