About Samantha

We are the 'Zundels'. Welcome to our little piece of Heaven on earth. Ron works construction and I (Samantha) spends time with our three children. We are a homeschooling family that likes to spend our vacations together on the beautiful island of St, Thomas. We lived on the island during a construction project a few years back and had to return. The island is our home away from home. The Caribbean calls to us just as it will you. The sand is always between our toes and the salt air sweetly fills our lungs.

Samantha purchased this studio in 2012

Why Samantha chose Estate Smith Bay

This year Ron and I (Samantha) celebrated our 20 year wedding anniversary in the Sapphire Village condos. We had the anniversary of a lifetime. Together we made the decision to purchase a condo. The five of us vacation together in our little piece of paradise. The kids can play at the pools or snorkel in the ocean. The stocked kitchenette makes breakfast, lunch, and dinners a snap.

We love the location of Sapphire Beach and the prestigious town of Redhook. The easy drive to the ferry docks makes it all the better.

Vacation with us and create your vacation of a lifetime. Your 'SECRETS' are safe with us.

What makes this studio unique

Why SECRETS at SAPPHIRE? Economical! Do the Caribbean the economical way. Stay here once and you will see. Our condo has everything you need to create a once in a lifetime vacation at a very affordable price. Spend your hard earned money on beach activities, exploring, touring the BVIs, snorkeling on St. John, visiting the duty-free shop downtown, and whatever else your heart desires.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nice property and location and great price

  • 5 of 5

The unit was in a nice location and nicely stocked with everything one would need! Hated to cut the vacation 4 days short due to Hurricane Irma but it looks as though the building held strong with little damage from the picture I saw! I would definitely stay here again

The A/C didn't work. To small for the villa. Very clean and well kept. If the A/C issue is resolved would recommend it and rented again.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear that. You should have called or emailed and we could gave had that easily repaired. We have a fantastic maintenance crew standing by for those issues that sneak up. However, we don't know there is an issue unless you let us know. The AC has been fixed and is working wonderfully. I hope you come back and visit us again soon.

Great location on island and beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We really liked our stay at Samantha's place. She answered promptly when I had questions about check-in. This unit is a great spot - near nightlife in Red Hook, near great restaurants and some of the best beaches. Our only complaint is that the air conditioning did not keep the room as cool as we would have liked. Outside of that, the neighbors were friendly and the location of the unit was convenient for our on island adventures.

Nice clean great location

  • 5 of 5

Very cute place.

Complex had beautiful tropical trees and flowers. Very quiet complex. Everything was very clean inside and out. Would definitely stay again.

Saphire beach was one of the best in the island. Nice shade trees over the sand and good snorkling with the equipment in the condo.

We loved it.

Great deal for the price.
