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.

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family! We had a couple of sets of in-laws with us and it allowed each couple as well as the kids a private retreat in their bedroom. The views are breathtaking - we saw several rainbows during the week. Kayaks, paddle boards and ping pong table provided hours of fun. Bring your snorkle gear - we saw several turtles and a lot of fish. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. Mike (the property manager) is the best! He attends to your every need. He met us at the airport and helped with luggage and getting us to the house. He checked in on us every day to make sure everything was okay. The owner is also very helpful and easy to communicate with. She promptly answered all the questions we had before we arrived and was willing to talk with me on the phone. The house is clean, tv's in every room, great housekeeping service, great outdoor pool & furniture to relax and read a book. Next time I would love to stay two weeks!!

Exceptional service on an amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely gorgeous and there is so much to do on the property, we hardly ever left. Mike, Monica, and Andriene, and Suzanne were absolutely fantastic! I can't say enough about how excellent their service was and how pleasant they all are. Mike took care of our every need and desire! Monica and Adriene prepared amazing food for us and were even able to accommodate one of our guests with celiac disease, who requires a gluten free diet. We very much hope to be there again someday soon, it was a truly amazing week.
