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!

Second Trip Back!

  • 5 of 5

In May 2016 my husband and I returned to the beautiful private beach on which we said "I do" just 4 years ago. Our first trip was a whirlwind, we were in shock with the beautiful view as you walk onto the main deck of the house. The pictures just don't do it justice. It's a view that cannot be topped. It was everything I dreamed of as a young girl for my wedding.

Suzanne (the home owner) was a dream to work with. She passed along names and contact information for all areas that I would need for the wedding from caterers, to photographers and options for a coordinator should I have wanted that.

The wedding was spectacular and I was SO thankful for Bob's help that week (he is the property manager). The man that can fix/help/prepare/coordinate/ you name it Bob can make it happen!

We talked about that trip for a couple of years after.... So much so, that I continue to check the availability of the house to see if a time slot would ever work with our crazy busy travel schedules. This past year, our anniversary week opened so we jumped on it. Again, Suzanne was so excited to hear from us and ready to help make it happen. We were thrilled to hear that Bob would once again be welcoming us. We were able to enjoy this trip much more, as the stress that comes along with the wedding was behind us and it was just time to relax and have fun.

We rented a boat this year and that was one of the highlights. We were able to go down to Magen's Bay for a little atmosphere change when wanted, and then out into the open ocean everyday. Found some great snorkel spots and some scary waves too.

The house had a few updates that were lovely. The master bath upgrades to the upper deck were a plus, as were the king size beds on the lower deck. We are a family into health and fitness so the gym comes in handy for us. We also found a quaint gym in town that was a good change up.

They offer to stock the house with groceries, we prefer to tag along to the store to do that on our own... Bob is always happily ready to take us.

It's a great house that can fit a lot of people and still not feel like it is crowded. Our first trip we took 16, the second only 6. We definitely love it and I am sure this trip won't be our last.

Amazing backdrop for a special week

  • 5 of 5

My son rented the villa for his wedding and invited family and friends to share this amazing place. I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. The views were amazing. The house was top notch. The private beach was great. There were kayaks, paddle boards, and, rafts.. we wanted for nothing.... Bob, the property manager, was so nice and kept the villa very well maintained. We also hired a private chef Monica... her food was so tasty, with the flair of the islands. Needless to say it was a trip of a lifetime. I would recommend this estate to anyone who is thinking about a destination wedding or vacation in St. Thomas.

Amazing Wedding Week

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely phenomenal. We were there in May. Had our welcome dinner and brunch at the Sand Dollar Estate. Our guests could not stop talking about the beauty of the property. Bob, the house manager is amazing. Incredibly laid back and happy to always lend a hand. Every time we had a question he was always there to answer. Suzanne and Steve (the owners) just seem like incredible people. Extremely friendly and helpful. We are so blown away by the hospitality and the beauty of our stay at the Sand Dollar Estate. We look forward to hopefully planning another trip there soon!!! Our week is a memory our guests will never forget!

Best House/Location for Vacation and Wedding

  • 5 of 5

I cannot imagine a better place to get married. We had 22 people stay at the house. We stayed at both the Sand Dollar Estate and Little Sand Dollar. There were 20 adults and 2 children.

My now husband and I stayed at Little Sand Dollar. Not only do you get privacy from the "main group", you have your own little oasis. All of the bedrooms were truly perfect. They all have their own bathroom which is perfect for large groups, and no one ever felt on top of one another.

A few things that I learnt from other reviews as well as emailing with Suzanne, she is the best resource. As an owner, I don't know that you can get a better person. She was attentive and when I was having a few minor breakouts she calmed me down and reiterated that everything will be fine and work out and it did.

I would definitely hire Monica for the week to cook. She is very good. Dinner is usually always served over warmers which makes it easier for you to choose what time to eat. All the food was amazing.

I strongly recommend hiring Edmund. Edmund drives a 14 passengers van. It is cheaper to hire him than to pay for taxi's or getting a car.

Bob is really there for anything you need during the week. He ran errands and was so prompt and made everything perfect. He also always has a smile on his face that is contagious.

All in all my wedding was beautiful. Sand Dollar makes it that much better. All of my vendors knew exactly where the house was located and knew things about the house that were still new to myself and our guests. It is very hard to plan a wedding from Minnesota but every single thing exceeded my expectations. It is honestly hard to plan for 14 months and still have your expectations exceeded. While, many other locations can provide certain aspects, Sand Dollar is where it all comes together.

We will definitely be back for anniversaries and more!

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.
