About Gregg and 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 and Aimee Dodd purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Gregg and 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 the best location at Sapphire. You are far enough from the main beach and pool that you get to relax at all times. Conversely, take 40 or 50 steps 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!

We’ll be back!
Really enjoyed our recent stay here! You can’t beat 37 steps to the beach! Loved being able to walk right out to the beach, and being in the middle building of the complex where you aren’t far from the marina by building E and not far from the main beach area by A. Great communication from them answering my questions as our trip approached.
Doesn't get any better
We've stayed multiple times and will no doubt go back again. Perfect location to sit back and chill!
We can’t blame the owner for the hurricane, but the place wasn’t prepared for a hurricane. The lighter for the old used candles didn’t work. We gifted you a new battery powered lantern.
We took extra care of the patio furniture during the hurricane and gifted you a new comfortable folding chair as the wooden chairs hurt to sit in for a long period of time.
Overall the condo was ok the bed is really used and just plane worn out.
The power went out for hours at a time every day we were there which was not fun. The internet didn’t work most days but again that could be the hurricane.
The pictures of the pool in the advertising were pre hurricane and are horrible to look at. The inside of the condo was clean, it would be nice if the kitchen tableware was replaced nothing matched. It feels like odd and ends not really nice.
Be careful of the time of year you go!
Loved being able to walk directly onto the beach! I thought I was getting a one bedroom condo, but it turned out to be a studio.
Would have liked to have more than 2 beach towels, and chairs for taking to other beaches.. It would have been nice to know no soap was provided in the bathroom. But overall, we had a wonderful 2 weeks!
Beautiful location. Truly fabulous views and snorkeling. Well maintained condo makes for perfection
Whether you are looking for a laid back relaxing vacation, or upbeat adventure, this is the condo for you. Located on the beach, there is no need to pack a bag to head out. Leave everything in your condo and walk right back in when you need it. The kitchen offers you the opportunity to fix yourself a quick meal, grab a snack, or just a cold drink.
