“Like dreaming with your eyes open!”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2013

Pictures lure you but until you actually arrive somewhere new the unexpected can leave you hoping the visuals match up. Our family of 12 can assure you Sand Dollar Estate far exceeds what any mere image can relay. Somehow, Sand Dollar manages to both tantalize & soothe all six senses simultaneously. The ever-so-charming & humble Caretaker, Bob, will greet you at the airport and escort you along the winding roads. Upon arrival you instinctively know you made the finest choice possible. The warm tropical breezes & relaxed grandeur of the home & all its inviting, spacious rooms & gathering areas escalate excitement. If you choose to hire Monica, the talented & friendly cook, the aroma of a tasty, readied meal will tempt you to eat before you even explore! We felt like royalty waking up or coming back from an outing able to just sit & enjoy each other's company over a fantastic, healthy, full-course, feast. No need to stress out over menu planning, shopping, cooking or cleaning- Monica does it all! If somehow you don't feel spoiled yet just wander down to your own private, soft sandy beach-a branch of Megens Bay. (One of the Top 10 Beaches in the world!) We snorkeled, fished, played water sports & more. We utilized the generously supplied kayaks & paddle boards to explore or venture over to the public portion of the beach. Bob went above-and-beyond what must be his duties by escorting us wherever we wanted to go to more fully enjoy all St. Thomas had to offer. He found a van with a safe driver for our catamaran excursion to St. John. He answered our numerous questions, drove us to our Flyboarding adventure & to find bate, fishing spears, beer, etc. We've rented villas in Hawaii/Turks & Caicos, etc. but Sand Dollar provided our favorite venue with memorable service. Bob & Monica added that feel-good, cared-for, welcome feeling only people can add to an experience while andrea kept the home fresh & clean. All 12 of us enjoyed our best vacation ever! Can't wait to return!

“Fabulous Getaway”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2013

After having stayed at some of the most exclusive hotels and resorts in the world, our group was skeptical when one of the couples suggested renting a private home for our annual getaway. We did comprehensive research; spoke with the owner and some of the previous guests and were totally at ease when we finally decided to rent Sand Dollar in October 2013. When we arrived the property, we were immediately impressed at how lovely and well maintained it was. The description and reviews were spot on and the photos do not do it justice. The location is ideal, not far from town but not in the middle of hotels/tourists area. We spent most of our time lingering on the private beach, swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, fishing... The golf course is five minutes away and we had massages at the spa almost every day. We booked two private charters, one for game fishing and another one solely for island hoping. We were most satisfied. Lunch was usually prepared by Monica or we took the kayak to Magens Bay Café for the best pizza and frozen drinks on the island. The customer service was perfect, 14 of us were catered to everyday. Bob was most helpful before and during our trip. One night he surprised us with a lobster feast and had a steel band playing the entire evening. We did try some of the local restaurant, Havana Blu, Oceana, Mafolie, and the Old Stone Farm House were our favorites. We tried to book a return trip next summer but unfortunately the estate is completely booked. We have no choice but to return in 2015!

“St. Thomas Fishing adventure”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2013

We have taken an annual boys trip to St. Thomas for blue marlin fishing in July 2013. One of my friends found the beautiful Sand Dollar Estate on the internet and they advertised a private white sand beach, so we had a fantasy of our charter boat picking us up every morning from our own beach and dropping us off when the day was over. It was not until we got to this magical place, that our fantasy actually came true. We have been fishing around the world from australia to Hawaii to the Bahamas in search of marlin, but we never been to any place like Sand Dollar. We fished for 4 days around the moon and did not leave the estate for another three - there was simply no reason to. Monica cooked a hearty breakfast for us each morning and our dinner was there waiting for us when we go home. Every night Bob turned the lights on which shine from the beautiful downstairs deck to the water and by 9:00 pm, there were a hundred tarpons right in front of the house within casting distance. What a great way to spend an evening. Because we were used to staying at a hotel, we were worried that we would not have all the 5-star amenities. Were we wrong! The 7 bedrooms (8 including the den at the cottage) were over the top. The Wifi is free and faster than any hotel and we could even get it on the beach! The sand was the softer than any of us had ever felt and this fishing trip was the greatest we ever took, thanks to Suzanne (the owner), Bob (the manager), his staff, and the incredible fishing on the north drop of St.Thomas in the summer of 2013.

“A Week in Paradise”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2013

Our family of 22 returned to Sand Dollar for our second consecutive year. What can I say? Fantastic, marvelous, extraordinary. Absolute paradise. Everything about this vacation was enjoyed by every single one of us. For starters, Suzanne, the owner, is a wonderful person to deal with. Her primary concern is that her clients are completely happy. And we certainly were! Bob, the resident manager, is an extraordinary gentleman, who obviously cares very deeply about what he does. We thoroughly enjoyed him. We used local chef and caterer, Shelly Berry of Shelly's Cakes and Catering to provide us with several meals. Her food is fantastic and she is a sheer delight. The villa suited our family to perfection. We are a well traveled family and put Sand Dollar at the top of our list for a fun-filled and satisfying vacation. It was a five star week from start to finish.

“A week that will be forever treasured!”

Reviewed 31 May 2013

Around a year ago when I was looking for a place for my wife and I to get married, I was searching all of the home rental sites to find a perfect place. After doing countless hours of research, I found the "Sand Dollar Estate." By looking at the pictures online, comparing the price per week versus all of the other homes I found, and communicating with Suzanne the owner of the Estate, I sensed no doubt that this was the best bang for my buck, the best value I can see or hear through the computer/phone, and a feeling of complete trust! However, still not knowing what the experience was going to officially prove to be. I proceeded to sell the vacation opportunity to both my parents and my wife's parents, as well as all of our brothers, sisters, their wives/husbands, and grand parents. Turned out they put their trust in me and the pictures they had seen of the Estate. The planning began as we set forth on a journey to plan a once in a life time family vacation, uniting all of our families, with a day planned for our Wedding. With little effort and communication with Bob and Monica, the staff at Sand Dollar, we coordinated all the plans, activities/excursions, and food with absolute ease. The staff at Sand Dollar could not have been anymore experienced with providing all the support, amenities, and luxuries anyone...including celebrities, could ever ask for. I am not one to write reviews, however, after being home for a week now and knowing the lifetime of memories my family and I are going to hold so close to our heart in which the moments will be forever treasured, I couldn't resist but to take this time and share with whomever reads this that I too wish you and whoever could experience the most breath taking Caribbean water, sand, and accommodation will know its truly worth your while. I know this because I have been all over the Caribbean and there is no better place. Magen's Bay beach is rated one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Estate / private beach Rate #1.

“Paradise!”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2013

I stayed at the Sand Dollar in March 2013. It was perfection, from start to finish. The house is absolutely beautiful, well taken care of, and lovely. We cooked meals in the well-equipped kitchen, and worked out every morning in the gym. During the day, we mostly hung out at the beautiful private beach, the best feature of the house. The water is so clear and warm, and there is great snorkeling and swimming right in front of the house. The pool/pool deck are also great, and we spent time there in the evenings, as the day was winding down. Overall, an amazing experience. I cannot wait to return to the Sand Dollar. Thank you!

“Exceptional from beginning to end”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2013

The Sand Dollar Estate is the most beautiful vacation destination I have ever witnessed. Of course there are pros and cons to every destination, but I can just not say enough about the Sand Dollar. Suzanne was helpful in setting everything up before arrival and even throughout the stay. The staff that work at the Sand Dollar were also there for every need we had. The location is indescribable! Definitely a dream come true to have my wedding there. I hope I will be able to visit some time again in my life. Thank you go all who are involved with the Sand Dollar Estate, it was unforgettable.

“Sand Dollar Wedding”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2012

We had the most memorable wedding at Sand Dollar, with 40 guests! From the very beginning, Suzanne was so awesome to work with. She happily responded to our thousand questions and made the planning process a smooth one. Bob, the house manager, helped so much during the wedding week and the day. He took us to the local restaurants, picked up guests, and took care of us like family. The house is gorgeous!! We loved the beautiful private beach where we can explore with our own kayaks. All the bedrooms were spacious and clean. All of our guests were blown away by the amenities and the spectacular view. The house provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding. We would definitely come back!!
