A Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5

You know how they say a girl dreams of her wedding day ever since she was a little girl. Well the Sand Dollar Estate made my wife's dreams come true. It was a spectacular place to have our wedding. We also spent the week there with family. The Estate had everything you could imagine and more. The staff was incredible! The property manager (Mike) was very friendly and very accommodating. The house chef (Monica) is a five star chef who impressed everyone with her creations and even made all the kids there favorites. The whole process was so easy from booking to leaving. We are already planning our next trip back. I've done a lot of traveling all over the world and this is by far my favorite trip of all.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot explain how amazing of experience we had at the Sand Dollar! First let me start with the house, it was impeccable! The PERFECT setting for our wedding and vacation. Every couple enjoyed having their own suite to themselves. The beach, pool area, and decks had everything we could have asked for!

The owners, Suzanne and Steve, were amazing to work with. They were so kind and very helpful in making our vacation a reality!

Most importantly, the staff! We instantly fell in love with Monica, Andrine, and Mike. It was so nice to wake up to Monica and Andrine every morning...the smell of coffee, breakfast, and to see their smiling faces! Monica's meals were to die for, and Andrine and Mike kept the house immaculate for us! The staff is what makes the Sand Dollar such a great experience. They honestly became like part of our family and we were truly sad to leave them!

We love the Sand Dollar and will most definitely come again!!

The most beautiful setting we have ever seen! Clean villa and grounds, comfortable beds, excellent beach! Everything exceeded our expectations. We held a wedding here with 45 people and it was amazing! Thanks, Suzanne, for everything you did to make this happen. Your quick responses to all of our questions was much appreciated. We are so happy we chose this villa. It truly was perfect. We definitely recommend hiring Monica to cook your meals-delicious and convenient. A wonderful week!

Amazing place, spectacular. Does get much better!!!

  • 5 of 5

I'll start by saying it is a must to stay at Sand Dollar. Best vacation ever!!!

Finding a place that can handle 9 couples with their own bedroom and bathroom has always been a challenge for our group of friends. From the start Suzanne is the best to work with, very responsive, truly cares that her guest have the best of everything.

Mike (the property manager) was fantastic as I was the person in charge of planning this vacation he made my life easy. Assisted with the preorder of food and beverage which was waiting for us when we arrived. Anything we needed for the week he took care of. His statement to me "you are here to relax I'm here to make sure that happens"

Monica's cooking was great, having breakfast waiting for you each morning, put in warming trays for those who preferred to sleep in. Dinner was the same, very relaxed pace ready for when we wanted it.

The estate was perfect more than enough room for all of us to roam and have our own space or gather together on the deck overlooking Megan's bay watching the sunset. Amazing.

We hired a steel band one night, (with Mikes help) hung out by the pool enjoying the Caribbean sounds.

We snorkeled with sting rays and turtles right off the private beach, from the upper deck you can watch them swim by along with the large Tarpon. Hunted for sea shells on the shore, kayaked around the bay, learned to paddle board. Laid in the loungers on the beach tanning as the waves rolled in around us. what a great feeling

The steps to the beach provided us all some exercise as well.

Suzanne is such a nice person, I can't say enough good about Sand Dollar, we are already planning our next trip back there. Can't come soon enough!!!!

Sand Dollar Estate is "As Good As It Gets"! Beautiful home on Megan's Bay, St. Thomas, VI

  • 5 of 5

Sand Dollar Estate has become a regular vacation for our 9 couples. The homes are beautiful and the service is second to none. Top that off with your on private beach on Megan's Bay, one of the top 10 in the world, It doesn't get better than that.

Suzanne is excellent to work with and will provide any and all suggestions you can think of while visiting St. Thomas.

Our group hires Monica to cook for us each time we visit and she does a great job.

Mike is always available to help with your needs no matter what they are. He is there to serve you.

Each couple has their own private bedroom and the beds are very comfortable.

If you are looking for the trip of a lifetime, I would highly recommend Sand Dollar Estates on Megan's Bay in St. Thomas. You want be disappointed!!!

The best family reunion ever

  • 5 of 5

My family, all 25 of us, have been doing a family reunion every three year for the last 30 years. We typically rent a large house in Florida, North Carolina or South Carolina during Christmas and East to allow everyone to attend. Our Sand Dollar reunion was hands down the best reunion of them all. First, the two houses allowed us put the adults in one house and all cousins in another.

Our typical day included waking up to the smells of Monica cooking breakfast, getting a cup of coffee from the huge coffee pot, working out in the house's gym room, then eating breakfast outside at the counter overlooking the bay with your favorite music playing over the blue tooth system, jumping into your swim suit and either laying on your private each, snorkeling, kayaking over to the beach bar, playing ping pong, or doing group excursion like golfing, snorkeling, or deep sea fishing. Of course after all you have a massage in house's massage room. No reason to leave the beach early as Monica is making dinner. The group assembles for dinner at table which fits all of us. Most importantly Monica and Bob are taking care of all issues.

Monica assist us to pre-order all the food, libations, and other stuff a group of our size requires; all of this (including the ice cold beer) is waiting for you a the house when you arrive. She also works with you to define the menu prior to your arrival. And her cooking, let's just say that my sister is still getting over the fact that her son prefers Monica's French toast to hers, and I'm still not over the fact that Monica's Ribs are better than mine. Another aspect of your vacation is Bob. Bob arrange for all the transportation you need anywhere and anytime, and arranged some of the activities for us.

We are already planing to return in a couple years.
