About Franca Tantillo

I own a specialty berry and vegetable farm in New York -(you can google or youtube me, Franca Tantillo or Berried Treasure Farms) to find out more. There's plenty of publication interviews. I bought a few units at Sapphire Village over the years for my Father and I, and I get away to da island as much as possible.

Franca Tantillo purchased this studio in 1996

Why Franca Tantillo chose Estate Smith Bay

St Thomas is the perfect caribbean island under the U.S. flag - not too busy and not too sleepy. The east end of the island is the best for several reasons - location, location, location. (and breezes, Red Hook nearby, ferry to St John, awesome beach just down the hill, etc)

What makes this studio unique

80 degrees year around, two beautiful pools, two restaurants on site, and close to the ferry dock to the other islands.

Beautiful Easter Holiday in St. Thomas

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I stepped in the unit, I was awe inspired by the view. Sapphire Beach with its turquoise waters and panoramic views of neighboring islands such as St. John and Tortola was spectacular. The unit was clean and well appointed. The owner, Franca was extremely accommodating in answering all of our questions and needs. We will definitely return!
