The Living Room is furnished with comfortable wicker furniture upholstered with tropical fabrics, a flat-screen TV, and a desk. Two sets of double doors lead from the Living Room to the private covered porch that overlooks the harbor and the downtown activity and offers romantic sunsets over St. Thomas and the beauty of the Caribbean Sea.

The Dining Area is open to the Living Room and adjacent to the galley-style Kitchen that is fully equipped, right down to the blender for making frozen tropical drinks and wine glasses for every occasion.

Sand Dollar offers two Bedrooms, each with its own air conditioning unit. The Master Bedroom features a queen-size bed. The Guest Bedroom has two twin beds. All beds are dressed with soft white linens and topped with ample pillows. A full Bath with tile shower and sumptuous towels is shared by the two Bedrooms.

Guestbook comments from the manager
The “greeter” helped so much by offering to stop at Dolphin Market before we went to Sand Dollar--of course we took her up on her offer! Haven't gotten the courage to rent a Jeep and tackle the native driving, yet, so one trip on a public bus to Salt Pond resulted in us getting stranded, but Concordia folks helped us get home. I know the public transportation is a huge issue on the island--we seem to get a little more "schooled" with every return! We are now so addicted to snorkeling and those beautiful beaches - and Sand Dollar - we'll be back!

We fell in love with the warm tropical breezes, pristine beaches, crystal-clear water, and the unspoiled beauty of this paradise island during our first visit in 1998. We love the laid-back lifestyle of island living, where the biggest decision of the day is which of the beautiful beaches to go to. After years of renting on St. John, we discovered how important it is to stay at a clean, comfortable, convenient, and relaxing vacation getaway, which is why Sand Dollar has always been our favorite “home away from home” -- as renters and as owners. We hope you will feel just as much at home at Sand Dollar as we always have.

Great return stay

  • 5 of 5
snorkel buddy and I found sand dollar in dec 2013 (see review). just back from return visit and still great condo in super location though hill from town seemed to have been higher! jan was again very easy to deal with an accommodating and continues to make improvements - new ice maker refrig and larger 4 person cooler but we were happy with smaller one. jan has changed to viva for management w/o hitch, though we missed bottle of rum in welcome basket in dec, viva provided nice multipocket beach bags for each bedroom which was a nice useful addition. may not get back in another 6 months but will return. though not the least expensive place we've stayed, out of what has been 17 trips to stj since 2004 & 10 different villas, sand dollar has been "best value".

Great stay in St. John

  • 4 of 5
The Sand Dollar is in a convenient location above town. The pool is great (it felt like it was our own pool) and the deck had an awesome view! The air conditioning in the bedrooms worked well but understand that the rest of the unit depends on the Trade Winds to cool off. Decent trade off for the view and location.

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Sand Dollar in early June 2014. We enjoyed every minute of our time on St. John. The Sand Dollar was perfect. The owners are excellent and the management company is very attentive to your needs. The view of Cruz Bay is spectacular. Battery Hill is close to town, but the walk back is difficult after a long day. However, the cab's will transport you for only $4.00 from Cruz Bay. The Sand Dollar is perfectly located for all activities and close to the Starfish market for groceries. We will definitely stay here again when we return to St. John. A few other reviews referenced the music from the downtown area during the evenings. We thought it was perfect as we swam in the pool after dark to relax after long days. Again, the Sand Dollar is the choice to make for your stay on the island.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for 3 weeks in May, the condo is beautifully decorated and the view from the balcony is incredible! The walk into town is an easy downhill stroll. Walking back up to the condo is a little tough but well worth it for the view, and also for the great breezes that you get at the top of the hill. I would definitely stay here again!

We love St. John!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful trip to St. John and enjoyed our stay at the Sand Dollar. The owner is very nice to work with and easily accessible for questions/comments. The greeter was waiting for us upon arrival and provided helpful information. The condo was nice and well-equipped. The beach towels, beach chairs and cooler were very much appreciated. We had coffee every morning on the porch enjoying the fantastic view. Our days were spent exploring beautiful beaches, snorkeling the crystal clear water and relaxing by the ocean. We enjoyed evening happy hours, great restaurants, local music and the beautiful tropical climate. We look forward to returning again soon.

Enjoyed our stay very much

Sand Dollar was a very clean and comfortable condo. The view from the balcony was spectacular, very nice to wake up in the morning and look out over Cruz Bay. All in all we highly recommend Sand Dollar and we'd stay there again.

Sand Dollar is located within walking distance to downtown Cruz Bay, St. John, USVI. Cruz Bay offers gourmet restaurants, unique boutiques, beach bars, dive shops, and the very private beach at Frank Bay.

Other Activities: The island of St. John boasts some of the world's most beautiful beaches and hundreds of acres of preserved National Park Service lands. The gorgeous white sandy beaches offer unparalleled swimming, snorkeling, and diving opportunities. Hiking trails meander throughout the island with trails ranging from easy to moderate.

The island of St. John does not have a golf course. A quick ferry ride to St. Thomas allows one to play at Mahogany Golf Club, a Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole golf course that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean with a view of the neighboring British Virgin Islands and beyond. Most spectacular is the Devil’s Triangle - a trio of holes so challenging that golfers who play through them without a penalty shot earn a prize in the pro shop. The course features lush rolling hills, tropical valleys, and greens. The course recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation, which included a brand new irrigation system.
