Sand Dollar Estate is "As Good As It Gets"! Beautiful home on Megan's Bay, St. Thomas, VI

  • 5 of 5

Sand Dollar Estate has become a regular vacation for our 9 couples. The homes are beautiful and the service is second to none. Top that off with your on private beach on Megan's Bay, one of the top 10 in the world, It doesn't get better than that.

Suzanne is excellent to work with and will provide any and all suggestions you can think of while visiting St. Thomas.

Our group hires Monica to cook for us each time we visit and she does a great job.

Mike is always available to help with your needs no matter what they are. He is there to serve you.

Each couple has their own private bedroom and the beds are very comfortable.

If you are looking for the trip of a lifetime, I would highly recommend Sand Dollar Estates on Megan's Bay in St. Thomas. You want be disappointed!!!

The best family reunion ever

  • 5 of 5

My family, all 25 of us, have been doing a family reunion every three year for the last 30 years. We typically rent a large house in Florida, North Carolina or South Carolina during Christmas and East to allow everyone to attend. Our Sand Dollar reunion was hands down the best reunion of them all. First, the two houses allowed us put the adults in one house and all cousins in another.

Our typical day included waking up to the smells of Monica cooking breakfast, getting a cup of coffee from the huge coffee pot, working out in the house's gym room, then eating breakfast outside at the counter overlooking the bay with your favorite music playing over the blue tooth system, jumping into your swim suit and either laying on your private each, snorkeling, kayaking over to the beach bar, playing ping pong, or doing group excursion like golfing, snorkeling, or deep sea fishing. Of course after all you have a massage in house's massage room. No reason to leave the beach early as Monica is making dinner. The group assembles for dinner at table which fits all of us. Most importantly Monica and Bob are taking care of all issues.

Monica assist us to pre-order all the food, libations, and other stuff a group of our size requires; all of this (including the ice cold beer) is waiting for you a the house when you arrive. She also works with you to define the menu prior to your arrival. And her cooking, let's just say that my sister is still getting over the fact that her son prefers Monica's French toast to hers, and I'm still not over the fact that Monica's Ribs are better than mine. Another aspect of your vacation is Bob. Bob arrange for all the transportation you need anywhere and anytime, and arranged some of the activities for us.

We are already planing to return in a couple years.

I stayed there for my best friend's wedding. It was just an amazing experience. The beach was just right there and fully equipped kayaks, paddle boards, etc. The house was impeccable. It was equipped with everything. I loved how every room had its own bathrooms and waiting areas. Loved the decks. Loved the hammocks. Loved the workout room. Loved the ice maker. The Little Sand Dollar was also perfect! it was such a magical week.

Gem in the heart of St. Thomas!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin? Fantastic, I'll start there. Everyone should stay at the Sand Dollar Estate for a vacation of a lifetime. We stayed there for my parents 70th birthday and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. We are a large family (parents, 4 brothers, sister in laws and 8 nephews) and there was something for everyone. Steps down to the beach with all the toys (kayaks, paddle boards, lounge chairs) allowed us to hang there all day long. We would kayak to Magens Bay beach for some Bushwackers and bar food while some of others enjoyed snorkeling around the property. My sister in laws and I enjoyed facials and massages in the comfort of the spa room at the Sand Dollar. The adults were able to get in workouts at the gym overlooking the ocean. After lunch, the kids would hop in the pool before heading back down to the beach.

And then there's Bob. Bob picked us up at the airport and was available for our every need. Bob is another top reason we hope to stay at the Sand Dollar again. We only left the Sand Dollar for a St. John day trip and honestly for a family who vacations the Sand Dollar was so nice there was no need to leave! I can't say enough about the stay, Bob, or the owners. In all, the place is a 10 and our stay was a 10!

Dream Vacation and Wedding

  • 5 of 5

I can't even begin to describe how incredible our stay at the Sand Dollar was. It was such a gift to have been able to give our daughter the wedding of her dreams! Suzanne is such a kind and gracious person. She was so helpful and very attentive from the moment we inquired about staying at the Sand Dollar. I can't begin to say enough about the staff, Bob, Monica and Audrine were absolutely fantastic. It was such a pleasure to see Monica's beautiful smiling face every morning. If you have any doubts about hiring her to cook don't, it was one of the best things we did! Both our family and my son-in-law's family stayed in the main house and the cottage. The wedding was at the beginning of the week and we had a week long celebration. It was amazing beyond anything we even anticipated. It was like living in a fairytale the whole week. I can't thank Suzanne enough for being so gracious and sharing her beautiful home with our family. Our families can't wait to return in the future!

Amazing Wedding Week

  • 5 of 5

Words can't express how I blessed I feel to stay at Sand Dollar and have my wedding day there. From the moment I arrived, I knew it was going to be a week my friends, my family and I would NEVER forget. I actual cried when I got to the estate because I couldn't believe the my dreams of being there actually came true.

The views overlooking Magens Bay are gorgeous. It is so cool seeing all the fish, stingrays and sea turtle swimming around every morning. There is more than enough space for 21 of us to scatter and you don't feel crowded.

I planned my stay at Sand Dollar 2 years ago. From the moment I started working with Suzanne she was fantastic at answering all our questions and was quick to get back to me. Bob the property manager was such a nice guy. He helped us out any way he could and always had a permanent smile on his face. We had Monica cooked for us and the food was AMAZING. W also used Edmund to get us from place to place. Super friendly. Good driver.

Wedding day was amazing. Bob was there early to get things ready. Monic's brunch was delicious and all my vendors I worked with made sure everything perfect. I honestly didn't worry about a thing.

My hair and make up girls Julie and Ana from Artistry by Kristina were amazing. There are both super talented. Ali from East End Flower Shop was phenomenal. The flowers were absolutely stunning and EXACTLY what I had envisioned! Our officiant Stuart Scott was awesome! He personalized everything for us and everyone was raving about his ceremony. We used Passion Fruit Chefs for our catering and Laura was awesome. Her staff was fantastic as well. DJ Eric Snow was great. Everyone danced and sang and had a blast. Elisha Orin was our photographer. The photos came out amazing.

I can't say enough amazing thing about Sand Dollar and all our vendors. Everything from the Estate, the beach, the staff...EVERYTHING truly exceeded all my expectations. Planning a destination wedding can be tough but having it at Sand Dollar was really easy.

The only day we ever left the house was to go on a catamaran ride on Coconut. Really amazing day and amazing staff. We also had Gloriana come to the house for massages and everyone said it was the best.

I don't know how we can top a week like this. We already can't wait to come back someday!
