About Hong Phan
We are from New Orleans, LA and have enjoyed traveling to the Caribbean tremendously. The beaches, parks, culture, and people have made St Thomas our favorite Caribbean island.
Hong Phan purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Hong Phan chose Estate Smith Bay
We discovered Sapphire Beach from our cruise to the island many years ago. The beach has spectacular views of St John and the British VI and it is right next to the town of Red Hook.
What makes this Condo unique
We have since renovated the bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom. We offer free wifi to all of our guests. Thanks for visiting our condo and have fun visiting the Virgin Islands.

Wonderful Condo on gorgeous beach!
We had such a wonderful stay at this spot! The condo was so nice with everything we needed. The deck over-looking the gorgeous Sapphire Beach was perfect and the owner is very responsive to any questions or needs.
I would advise beach goers to bring pool shoes along because it is a rocky approach in to the water.
Glad to hear that you had a nice time at Sapphire Beach. Hope you come back and see us soon.
Nice location! Perfect space for 2/3 guests. Took a day trip to Virgin Gorda & Baths from Sapphire Beach Marina... Very convenient & a must do, TOO Beautiful for words. If planning one I recommend booking when you arrive, even slow seasons can book up quickly. Pool on property could be better maintained murky compared to Sapphire Village property. However I spent most of my time on the beach and enjoyed the daytime love music a few days during our 9 day stay.
Taxis are very easy to grab at the main entrance
$4 to Red Hook, $11 to Charlotte Amalie, $15 back to airport for our departure.
During the evening (after 6:00) taxis aren’t lined up on property but just grab a business card from one of the guys during the day and they are happy to pick up with a call. Most places you go for dinner taxis are ready and waiting to take you back.
Property was clean and well equipped with necessities. Recommend brining plastic cups for beach. Beach Bar has stellar burgers and fish tacos!
Looked like people enjoyed snorkeling off the rocky side of beach. I recommend Maho Bay on St John if you want to swim with Sea Turtles!!
Our host was easy to communicate with and prompt to respond.
Had a wonderful stay, highly recommend this property!
Glad you had a nice stay with us. Maho is our second favorite beach too especially when you have small children like we do. Thanks for your stay and look forward to hearing from you for future reference.
Pros: This is a nicely updated unit on the best part of the beach. The snorkeling right off the beach was very nice. The Free beach chairs are a plus. The unit has a Keurig coffee maker as well as a standard drip type.
Cons: You have to take a cab to get to restaurants and shops. The patio is not covered so there is no shade until the sun is behind the building. There are some pots and pans but the condo is not really equipped for cooking (there are no baking sheets or pans and the dishes are not microwave or oven safe). Four bath towels were sufficient for us, but two beach towels and two washcloths for an entire week was not enough.
We had a great time and loved the location of this unit near the beach grill. The island decor was cute. We would stay here again but pack a few towels and maybe a spare set of sheets.
I will need to add a few more sheets and towels. Thanks for the heads up. Hope to see you again.
View was awesome, just steps to ocean. However unit had only 2 washcloths!! Bought more (owner said would reimburse). Stick a few plastic tumblers in luggage because there were only minimal dishes/glasses that were ALL ceramic or glass. Commode ran constantly and one of double sinks’ drain stopper stuck constantly. Slight improvement on little details could’ve made review better. Still enjoyed time there!
I will address those issues. Thanks for choosing to stay with us.
Great condo at a great location.
Condo was as described and the beach/island can’t be beat!
Thanks for choosing to stay with us.
Beautiful condo with an AMAZING view!
Sapphire beach is gorgeous. You really can't get a much better view than this. I could not wait to get up in the morning to watch the sunrise with my coffee or enjoy lunch on the large balcony with my family.
The condo was clean and spacious. Hong was so easy to get ahold of whenever I had a question before or during our stay. We would definitely rent this condo again.
I am glad to hear that you have enjoyed your stay here @ Sapphire beach. Thank you Stacy for choosing to stay with us.
