2 Person Studio with Balcony Water Views - 3 Minute Walk to Sapphire Beach
About Patrick Brown
We love the water, boats, fishing, diving and of course hitting the beach. We have invested in this property and truly love it and the surrounding area and take pride in our ownership. We know you will enjoy our home and all that is available for you to do while on vacation. We visit quite often and update our unit just about each and every visit with new art work, furniture or other items we feel add style and substance with an island vibe.
Patrick Brown purchased this Studio in 2015
Why Patrick Brown chose Estate Smith Bay
My wife and I chose to buy here because we simply love the USVI/BVI and love to travel throughout the islands. We do have a local presence as well as our caretaker lives nearby and is available in case you need something taken care of while staying in our home. Yes, the views are wonderful and we find ourselves sitting on the balcony quite a bit just staring at the gorgeous water and incredible islands in the distance! We are proud owners and really enjoy the atmosphere poolside at Sapphire Village as well as visiting Sapphire Beach where there is some very good snorkeling. Just up the road is Lindquist and Coki Beach which has some wonderful beach diving as well as snorkeling. It really is great owning a piece of paradise! This area offers plenty for those who love the water and all that is associated with it. Nearby town of Red Hook is great and the Ferry Terminal is such an advantage to have close by for those who want to visit the other islands.
What makes this Studio unique
Yes, it is the view, no doubt about it. As soon as you walk in you just fall in love all over again! We truly enjoy sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the early evening taking in the turquoise hues and colors, the waters are really that vibrant. Usually it is a very clear view and it really is great to watch the boats come and go as well as para-sailing right nearby. Also its wonderful to be just a few steps away from a lovely pool and restaurant and gorgeous Sapphire Beach.

Totally enjoyed my stay at this property. I'd definitely stay here again and do recommend it.
Hello Keisha. Glad you enjoyed your island time once again! Thanks for booking my home for your stay and so glad it all worked out for you.
Perfect location! Beautiful beach! Great owner (Patrick)!
It really is a great spot and glad it all worked out for your stay! Thanks again for choosing my home for your vacation.
Great Place to Stay
This was the perfect studio apartment that over looks the marina & beach for our trip to St. Thomas for a wedding. It has everything that you need to make the place your home during your stay. The owner is super helpful with giving information before we came to visit. He was also available to answer questions when we had some during our stay. We did not rent a car, but there is a taxi service stand located down below by the beach. Overall, it was a great experience & we would definitely come back to stay at this condo again.
So glad you had a great time and I was able to help out with your questions prior to your arrival as well as during your stay.
Did not live up to reviews. Noisy and leaking air conditioner, mold in shower, missing handles on balcony doors, cupboards and closets crammed full so unable to store groceries or hang clothes. We will not stay there again and in all concience cannot recommend.
I do appreciate your review. Since purchasing our home 4 years ago this is the first negative review we have received. We have had a few hundred guests including honeymooners, wedding participants and many many others that have truly enjoyed their stay. I will state once again I am sorry you did not. I will mention, however, the guests that checked out the day you arrived and the guests that checked in after you left had a wonderful stay and did not mention any of the issues you had. I am sad to hear you did not enjoy your time but let me try and respond. The window AC runs nice and cold but it can be a little noisy, it was installed right after we received power after the storms and is about 1.5 years old. All room air conditioners drip — or at least they should. The condensed water should leak from the back of the air conditioner unit whenever the unit is running and its common for those window units to expel water on the rear of the unit, there is nothing wrong with it. There is a tray to catch the water and a drain as well. There is no mold in the shower, my cleaning group confirmed that when you brought it up to me after you left my home. However, I indicated had I known about the issue while you were there I would have had them check it out as well as the AC unit but you did not contact me while you were at my home regarding those issues, I only learned about them after you left. After you checked in, you contacted me regarding the missing handle on the balcony door, no previous guest mentioned this issue nor did my local cleaning crew but I contacted the office and it was fixed that same day, I try and take care of my guests as much as possible. There is a storage shelf inside the door next to the TV that has space to store groceries or other items, I guess you did not see that but you easily could have put a few items there to make room elsewhere. Please remember this is a studio condo and space is at a premium compared to a 1 bedroom or larger unit. The closets contain beach chairs, snorkel gear, coolers, vacuum, etc. and there are hangers for clothing as well as a dresser to store clothes. As I mentioned to you, you could move things around at your leisure to make room for your items. Most if not all guests are very appreciative that we provide the beach gear. I will state one more time that I am truly sorry you did not enjoy your stay.
Relaxing and fun vacation!
We had a wonderful stay at Estate Smith Bay! Gorgeous weather and beautiful views! Excellent owner...great communication, very informative and easy work with. Highly recommend!
Thanks Sunny. Many previous guests echo your words and am glad it all worked out for you.
We stayed the week of March 4th until the 10th. The owner, Patrick was very informative before arrival of our trip. He responded promptly to my questions and had detailed instructions in the condo. Condo was neat and cleaned. Nice proximity to the pool and pool bar. About a 5-8 minute walk to the beach. Definitely would consider staying here again.
Thanks for choosing my home for your vacation. Glad I could answer the questions you had and let me know if I can be of help in the future.
This lovely studio condominium is located adjacent to Sapphire Beach Marina and Sapphire Beach itself.
