A WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
It is rare that the actual vacation matches your expectations and imagination but Sand Dollar did. The home was in a perfect location on the island and the beaches were perfect for all ages. The staff was wonderful. Bob was available 24/7 and always had a calm and cool caribbean, St. Thomas disposition. Monica and Andrine were fabulous in the kitchen. Despite being in the U.S., Suzanne was easily accessible, kind and accommodating with all our of needs and questions prior to and during our stay. I would not hesitate to stay at Sand Dollar again. To quote one of my favorite movies, "I hope the Pacific (Caribbean in this case) is as blue as it has been in my dreams". Well it was. Thanks so much.

AMAZING WEEK AT SAND DOLLAR

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 19 at Sand Dollar in the beginning of March - mixture of friends and our adult children and their spouses (ages 27 to 59). Some met each other for the first time. We had such a great adventure and we felt like we had all known each other forever.. We played group games each night and Thursday was our "Secret Night" where everyone shared a secret about themselves. What happens at Sand Dollar stays at Sand Dollar!

I organized the trip and everyone was so appreciative and said I could not have found a better location. Suzanne the owner was wonderful to work with. She would respond immediately to every one of my e-mails or calls and was so very helpful. We also hire Monica and her niece to cook for us and it was the best decision ever. They prepared 2 meals of our choice daily and purchased whatever food our group requested which made the food cost so reasonable. We spoke several times before our arrival. I felt like we had friends for years. We like fresh fruit and she always had beautiful fruit platter each morning to enjoy all day. Her scrambled eggs, Mac N Cheese and BBQ chicken were our favorite.

Bob, the manager became part of our group. He was such a pleasure and so very helpful. Bob met us at the airport and had all the food and drinks I had pre-ordered from Cost U Less delivered at the estate. He kept our bar well stocked everyday which save us $ on alcohol and supplies. He is so sweet and made our stay so special. Both he and Monica truly became part of our group.

We absolutely love the property, so beautiful and private. We all had our own rooms and private bathrooms. Our own private beach with beautiful clear water - kayaks, paddle boards and rafts to enjoy. We walked in the water all the way to Magens Bay. We basically lived in our bathing suits. We went out to dinner once, but there was no need to leave our paradise.

We had Gloriana come to the estate on 2 days for massages which was outstanding. We also had a private boat tour with New Horizon which Captain Ryan and Matt was great and so much fun. They gave us 20% discount as Sand Dollar's guests.

The great thing about Sand Dollar is there is no need to leave this wonderful property. It was the most relaxing vacation any of us every had. Our group will certainly return. Hopefully with a few grandchildren next time.

Thanks to Suzanne, Monica and Bob for making us feel so special and giving us a great getaway that we will never forget.

SAND DOLLAR ESTATES, ST. THOMAS USVI

  • 5 of 5
From the time we booked the villa thru Suzanne until the day we left, the whole experience was worth every dime. Once we arrived at the Villa, Bob was there to greet us and show us everything we needed to know in addition to offering his services for anything we needed during our stay.
The villa is well appointed, the beach is the BEST private beach on the entire island of St. Thomas and I think the beds were one of the most comfortable beds I have every slept in, period!
Suzanne and Steve provide you with eveything you need to know about the area, the services and the villa prior to your arrival. I would suggest purchasing the necessary items from the costuless website and have Bob stock the villa before your arrival. Who wants to be at the grocery store after making the flight versus sipping a rum cocktail by the pool or on the beach?
There is a small deli/store called the cork and cup where you can buy simple items as well as beer, wine and spirits that is a short 5min drive from the villa.
We had a group of 12 (six couples) in our party and to a couple, each said we would come back to Sand Dollar Estate in a heartbeat!

EXCEEDED ALL OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
I have been following Sand Dollar for two years. Every time I was ready to book, it was unavailable. I was excited when I finally found a week which the property was open that worked for our entire family. With such high anticipation, our group of 20 was EXTREMELY looking forward to our trip to Sand Dollar. I am glad to report that it exceeded all our expectations.

The pictures and videos do not capture the magic of this place. We are still glowing thanks to the warm hospitality of the estate staff, especially Bob and Monica. The property is tastefully decorated. Every aspect is well-thought. Since it is not in the middle of the tourist area, we rented two cars for the week. Even so, Bob offered to drive us most of the time. Suzanne (the owner) suggested that we take advantage of pre-stocking the groceries. They were all in the fridge when we arrived. How great is that! Nothing worse than hungry kids after a long day of travel. I worked with Monica on the menu to please our picky eaters. She worked around our schedule the entire week and we took the opportunity to dine out several nights while she graciously babysat our children.

We could not have asked for a better vacation. Each day we were blessed with lovely weather and a new experience in the islands - fishing, swimming, snorkeling, boating, or just relaxing on the beach.

Our family likes to explore new places. However, we will make an exception for Sand Dollar. We plan to come back next year for sure if there is any time open!

PERFECT FOR WEDDING AND FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We chose Sand Dollar because it was perfect for our destination wedding and large enough for our family to stay with us. Not to mention that it is the only property in St. Thomas with a real white sand beach which was ideal for our ceremony.

Everyone enjoyed their stay and the amenities the house had to offer. We liked the layout of each bedroom. They are very different in decor and set up, but suited all our individual needs. The location of the property is ideal, only 20 minutes from the airport and within 15 minutes from all major attractions. The area was very safe, we did not lock the doors the entire time.

We worked directly with the owner. Suzanne helped us find the best wedding planner and caterer and gave us a lot of money saving ideas. Bob, the manager, was great to work with and very friendly. He made numerous trips to meet with our family members who arrived from different parts of the country, pre-stocked all our groceries, picked up and stored all the wedding packages prior to our arrival, and always available during our stay. We also hired Monica to cook for us. We enjoyed her food tremendously.

This is by far one of the most memorable vacation. We will definitely return in the near future.

JAW DROPPING BEAUTY AND EXCEPTIONAL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
This property does not disappoint! Everything was wonderful, from the layout of the villa (everyone found privacy when they wanted it, but there were many fun and comfortable gathering points), to the comfort of the bedrooms (lovely beds, linens, pillows and towels) to the incredibly well appointed kitchen. The staff was welcoming and truly helpful. They did their best to make sure we had a fabulous stay and went out of their way to assist when we needed it.
We are most certainly returning. This is a must for your bucket list and is certainly worth repeating!
