About John White

Jean and I (John) both grew up in the New York metro area but have lived in northern Vermont for almost 30 years now. We met in Manhattan the early 1980's when we both worked for the same company. About 15 years ago Jean gave up corporate work to teach yoga full-time – quite a change, but a very rewarding one. I have recently retired after working for almost 20 years for a wonderful company called Gardener's Supply.

We live near Lake Champlain and enjoy sailing during the very short period that constitutes Summer in this latitude. We have two beautiful and spirited granddaughters who keep us busy. And amused.

John White purchased this studio in 2014

Why John White chose Estate Smith Bay

Sapphire Hill Village is a well kept, well managed complex in a spectacular location. On site we have two pools with lounge chairs and tiki tables, a restaurant/bar and laundry. A car is not mandatory (although we usually rent one for convenience). Sapphire Beach, with lovely sand, great snorkeling and equipment rentals is right next door. So too is the Sapphire Marina where you can find day sails, fishing charters, BVI day trips and boat rentals.

Red Hook - with restaurants, clubs, groceries, banking, shopping and BVI or St. John ferries - is a a half-mile away. There is a bus/taxi stop at the Sapphire Hill Village entrance and taxis are readily available.

What makes this studio unique

We bought Seabreeze because we wanted to be near Red Hook, we liked Sapphire Hill Village and the view is to die for. After we bought it, we quickly found that - since it faces east - we not only get a daily show at sunrise, but also have a virtually continuous breeze from the easterly trade-winds.

Seabreeze needed extensive renovation. We had heard some horror stories about similar undertakings and expected the worst. But we were very, very lucky. The builder we hired turned out to be fantastic. He managed the whole project and gave us great advice and guidance. We hired a very talented cabinet maker who built ans installed the custom cabinets and vanity on time and on budget. The result is a very pretty and pleasant place that we have great affection for. So far, our guests have agreed.

Definitely place to chose as an accommodation. The owner provided all info and description about the island including both, things to do and restaurants. The beach is walking distance, grill/bar bellow and the most important very clean and neat.

Best regards,

Perfect location, clean and tidy room and great views!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo and location was perfect for my mom and I to spend an amazing week in St. Thomas. Saphire beach is amazing, and you are so close to so many other options as well- taxi to other beaches on St.Thomas, ferry to St. John and so many food and drink options available. Having beach chairs, cooler and snorkel gear made it so easy to enjoy the beaches during the day, and have dinner and drinks at night! Perfect vacation and can't wait to return as soon as possible!
