Sand Dollar Estate - The best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Sand Dollar Estate is the absolute best vacation rental our family has ever had. This was our 3rd visit to the estate and I have to say that it was by far the best ever. The staff is simply AMAZING! Andrine did a wonderful job taking care of all our housekeeping needs. Chef Wayne prepared the most fantastic meals and Mike, the property manager was the absolute best taking care of anything else we needed while we were there. We spent two glorious weeks there this time and we CANNOT wait to return. We had jet skis delivered to the estate and had so much fun driving them around the bay. Glorianna, the massage therapist came to us three times to give us the best massages. The Kayaks were great to have to hop over to Magens Bay and have a cocktail. Simply just relaxing and enjoying the property was perfect. Suzanne and Steve the owners, have gone above and beyond to make this truly a dream vacation.

Best Stay in the Virgin Islands

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time staying at Sand Dollar and it just seems to get better each time and we stayed TWO weeks! I was a little apprehensive about staying after the hurricane but he house and grounds are in perfect shape as always, and the private beach was wonderful.

Suzanne is a pure pleasure to deal with and the staff cannot be beat. Mike took care of our every need with numerous runs to the airport and stores (and even once to the emergency room late at night). He was so kind and helpful to everyone. Chef Wayne was somehow able to accommodate everyone’s request and he worked 3 meals per day staying late to clean up. The food was awesome and presentation perfect.

We have been vacationing in the VI for over 20 years and usually stay on St John but there are no finer accommodations and staff in the Virgin Islands than at Sand Dollar. You will not be disappointed.

The property was truly amazing. It was a clean and a well equipped property.

  • 5 of 5

Our grandson said it best "It was the best vacation ever." Mike, the property manager, fulfilled all our needs and made sure the property was in tip top shape every day. Chef Wayne provided excellent meals for all 15 of us for breakfast and dinner. Sand Dollar is truly paradise. Our family said that this vacation can never be topped.

Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Even more beautiful in person! We stayed at the Sand Dollar Estate for our wedding week in July. There were 22 of us total and between the little sand dollar and the main villa we were perfectly comfortable. The villa really has everything you need and we never wanted to leave! There are kayaks, paddle boards and tons of floats so you can hang out on the beach all day and the water is so warm! The villa itself is beautiful and there are so many different and cozy areas to hang out. Because of the ocean breeze the mosquitos didn't bother us and in the evening it was the perfect temperature. If you ever need an escape from the heat there is air conditioning everywhere and it cranks! Plus you have the pool and ocean too. I really can't say enough about this amazing villa. I am so happy that we spent a week there and got married on the private beach. It was a week I will cherish forever!

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from our 50th anniversary celebration with our children and grandchildren at Sand Dollar Estate, a little slice of Paradise tucked into the hills of Magen's Bay in Saint Thomas. The house is spectacular, with every amenity you can imagine, and breathtaking ocean views. The property manager, Mike, is there to attend to your every need. He will take care of pre-stocking the house prior to your arrival, meet you at the airport, make arrangements for transportation anywhere on the island, and make daily trips to the store for your convenience. We opted for a Chef for the week, who prepared 3 meals a day, meeting the culinary needs of our group of 16, ages 7-70. We rented a car for the week, which, in retrospect, was unnecessary. We only left the house once during the week, to go on a snorkel cruise to St. John on the Daydreamer/Coconut Catamaran line out of Sugar Bay (Great!!), and Mike arranged transportation for that trip. FYI- it's rather daunting to drive, on the left, along the narrow, steep roads on the island, which is another reason to reconsider a car rental! Our vacation at Sand Dollar Estate exceeded all expectations, and left us with memories that will last a lifetime.

Car: recommended

Sand Dollar is situated right on the shores of Magens Bay, one of the ten best beaches in the world, according to National Geographic and the Travel Channel. Sand Dollar provides four 1-person kayaks, 2 paddle boards, beach lounge chairs and inflatable water toys. Activities such as private boat charter to nearby islands for fishing, snorkeling, island hoping or diving, can be arranged with advance notice. Call or email for fees and availability. Also inquire about massage, private yoga or pilates sessions inside the villa or right on the beach. Mahogany Run, the only Golf course in St Thomas is only 5 minutes away. 15 minutes to downtown Charlotte Amalie. Abundant duty-free shopping. Bob, your full-time manager, is available to assist you at anytime.
