About Gregg or Aimee Dodd
Aimee and I live in Pittsburgh, PA and try to get to St. Thomas as often as possible. With a kid and two dogs, it's not always that easy.
Gregg or Aimee Dodd purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Gregg or Aimee Dodd chose Estate Smith Bay
After spending our honeymoon at Sapphire Beach Resort in 2000, we knew this was one of the nicest beaches we had been to. We traveled to Aruba, Mexico, Bahamas, Punt Cana, and all of the other popular vacation spots but we kept coming back to Sapphire Beach. There is something to be said about feeling safe, and still being in the US helps. Everyone is friendly and there is always something to do.
What makes this Condo unique
This condo truly is one of the best locations at Sapphire. You are far enough from the main beach and pool that you get to relax at all times. Conversely, walk a few hundred feet and you are at the pool. Walk a little further and you are at the marina. You are centrally located with easy access to everything. We go shopping as soon as we arrive and usually eat breakfast and lunch in the condo. Aimee and I are beach people, so being at the beach is what it is all about for us. At night we head into Red Hook to one of the restaurants. Duffy's Love Shack is a must visit, but don't go too early. The party has to wind itself up!

Great beachfront location
The beach is beautiful and location is definitely the highlight of this property. The interior could use an update but the reason to visit St Thomas is to stay on the beach, not to stay inside.
Perfect laid back beachfront
Terrific property! Location is perfect for a beach vacation ! Nice kitchenette to make some meals and save money . Todd was quick to respond w any questions. Loved this place !
The view from this property was amazing! The staff at the resort were friendly and accommodating and we really enjoyed the beach bar. I will definitely stay again the next time I make it to island.
Great place in a fantastic location!
This was a great property. It was exactly as described and had plenty of room for our 3 person family. My teenage daughter enjoyed having her own bathroom and her own space downstairs on a fold out. Sapphire beach is a beautiful beach with great snorkeling right off the beach. While staying at the resort you get access to their beach chairs. There is a guy who will set them up for you every morning. I loved being able to go out early and get our chairs and towels set up and know that our shade was "reserved" for the rest of the day. The location of this specific condo is especially nice as it is on the 3rd floor so it is two stories which gives more space than the condos on other floors. I really loved the balconies (on both floors!) which had fantastic views. This condo also had a great location because it was in building A. This building is the furthest from the marina and had the best beach of all the buildings. It is right next to the beach bar which is convenient. When there was live music at the beach bar it was never too loud and the performers were good! There was also some noodles and snorkel equipment (even fins!) in the condo which was very nice. The last point I will make is that the owner was very easy to reach. I was given his # to text and communicated several times with him about questions or a problem with one of the faucets. He responded immediately and even when I texted him late at night he had someone out to fix the problem the very next morning. I was so impressed with this unit, location and owner. I hope to find our way back to St. Thomas in the future and I hope this place won't be booked up because we would definitely like to return!
Loved the property. Great beach. First time in st. Thomas. We rented a car, explored the island, chartered a boat and fished, took the ferry to St. John. It was a great trip.
Sapphire Beach Spring 2019
The two story villa had excellent views and all the amenities we could have needed from snorkel equipment to a full kitchen to comfortable beds. So happy to see that the resort has made so many improvements since the Hurricanes. The newly expanded beach bar serves delicious hamburgers and the new café has a great variety of coffee drinks. Between the beautiful condo and the resort itself, its a little bit of paradise. Will be back again in 2020.
Sapphire Beach is located a very short drive from Red Hook and the Red Hook ferry dock. You can find bars, restaurants, shopping and other activities in Red Hook. There is also a large marina at Red Hook.
