“Dream Vacation and Wedding”
Reviewed November 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I can't even begin to describe how incredible our stay at the Sand Dollar was. It was such a gift to have been able to give our daughter the wedding of her dreams! Suzanne is such a kind and gracious person. She was so helpful and very attentive from the moment we inquired about staying at the Sand Dollar. I can't begin to say enough about the staff, Bob, Monica and Andrine were absolutely fantastic. It was such a pleasure to see Monica's beautiful smiling face every morning. If you have any doubts about hiring her to cook don't, it was one of the best things we did! Both our family and my son-in-law's family stayed at the main house and the cottage. The wedding was at the beginning of the week and we had a week long celebration. It was amazing beyond anything we even anticipated. It was like living in a fairytale the whole week. I can't thank Suzanne enough for being so gracious and sharing her beautiful home with our family. Our families can't wait to return in the future!

“Fabulous Stay with Amazing Views and Service!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed at the Sand Dollar in May 2015 with 5 others couples to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We rented the main house only, however we toured the smaller cottage on the property as well. The property is very well maintained and private. It has it's own private beach with all the amenities (lounge chairs, kayaks, paddle boards). The Sand Dollar is located in Megan's Bay which is a great location. All the bedrooms have private baths, the two upstairs rooms also have outdoor showers, which we really enjoyed. The only thing that I would say was lacking was the gym. However that was a non-issue for our group since we enjoyed working out in the outdoors by the swimming pool overlooking the ocean (better than any gym)!
We decided to hire Monica, the cook, for the week. This was the best decision since we did not rent a car and getting into town to go to restaurants is a challenge. Monica and her assistant prepared breakfast and dinner for us daily. The food was amazing!! It was wonderful to wake up in the morning to an amazing breakfast & coffee, and to come off the beach in the evenings and have dinner waiting for us. Worth every penny!!
Then there is Bob, the house manager. He lives on the property and is always available if you need anything. He came by daily to see if we needed him but gave us our space. If we needed him he was just a phone call away.
Suzanne, the house owner, was wonderful to deal with. From the moment we contacted her to inquire about availability til the day we returned from our trip, she was always checking to make sure we were happy and being taken care of by the staff. Any time we tried to reach her she would return our calls/emails promptly. She also added personal touches to make us feel welcome and to thank us for our business.
Overall, our stay at the Sand Dollar was fabulous!! All our friends were all pleased as well.

“Just as beautiful as remembered”
Reviewed January 25, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

My first vacation at Sand Dollar was in Jan., 2010 with a group of 14 people including 2 friends who married on the beach there. It was a wedding to remember and the staff at the SandDollar helped to make it so.

Five years later, Jan. 10th, 2015, most of our original group returned to enjoy the paradise of Magen's Bay. Now a party of 17 friends thanks to the addition of two new bedroom suites to Little Sand Dollar since our last trip. They are very nice with their own deck, beach and hammock below. Some other great additions are the massage room and the big raft anchored right off the Sand Dollar beach.

We found everything as lovely as we remembered. Bob helped us with anything we needed including getting groceries stocked for us, ferrying us and our luggage and picking up pizzas on our first night. He lives nearby and is a phone call away. He even found some duct tape for us when we needed it.

Although we had a large a group the house felt huge; there is room to spread out in every direction and the views are unbelievable. On nights we cooked at the house there was plenty of seating for all. We did not hire a cook since most of us enjoy cooking; we found everything we needed in the kitchen to cook for our group. If I were to propose any suggestion for improvement I would say add another washer/dryer but on second thought, it's vacation so who needs to do laundry?

The beach is just the right size and an easy swim out to the big raft. On several days we were adventurous and walked through the water to Magen's Bay beach bar for lunch and a Painkiller. Don't stray far from from the shoreline and it can be an easy walk even for short people. One day of our trip we spent visiting St. John and another taking a snorkeling/boat trip to Jost Van Dyke. But as several of our friends mentioned, you could spend the whole week without leaving the Sand Dollar estate and have the best vacation ever.

To sum it up: Suzanne is a dream to work with, the location can't be beat on St. Thomas and the house and staff are awesome. I feel lucky to have spent a week there and don't think it will be the last time.

This is our second time returning to this beautiful palace, we couldn't have been happier all the way to Bob picking us up at the airport, to him doing all our shopping for the first couple days! he is the cats meow!! the weather here is guaranteed to be beautiful, the home is the most cozy and comfortable, the beach is a delight, there is no need to go anywhere when your here! from the Kyakes to the massive floating lounger! but we did go to the zip line and the gondola, kayaked to Megans bay highly recommend them! Then there is the owner Suzanne and her hubby Steve, whom we have not personally meet but they are the most wonderful of people, making sure you have all you need, Bob he just rocks, we have spent many hours talking with him and learning new stories, he has so many! also treating him to dinner and breakfast, he so well deserved!! we also had passion fruit cater a wonderful mahi dinner they were delightfully fun gals! I haven't enough adjectives to describe this touch of heaven! Hope to return!!!

“Vacation of a Lifetime”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our week at Sand Dollar was a vacation of a lifetime. Memories were made that will never be forgotten. Suzanne, the property owner, was instrumental in making this trip successful and smooth all the way through. She connected us right away with Bob, the property manager and Monica the chef, to begin the preparations for a very successful and memorable trip.

From the airport on, Bob’s assistance with driving was very much appreciated. His suggestions about what to do and see on the island were right on and so much fun. He was able to join us on the zip line experience as well as a night of live entertainment, dancing and good food at Paradise Point, where we overlooked the beautiful St. Thomas harbor, as cruise ships embarked and disembarked. He assisted us to the ferry for our excursion to Trunk Beach on St. John Island and a fabulous day of snorkeling and just enjoying one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Part of our group also had a fabulous day scuba diving. We were entertained daily at our own private beach with the kayaks, paddle board and rafts. Our family members also took advantage of the well equipped exercise room for daily morning workouts.

Monica and her niece prepared great dishes throughout the week and were so pleasant to talk with in the mornings and afternoons. We especially enjoyed Monica’s singing as she prepared the daily meals. Both houses were fantastic and comfortable for all seventeen of us. We especially liked having our own private bath with each bedroom and all the outdoor space to gather and enjoy each other’s company. A return to Sand Dollar is definitely on our bucket list.

A special thank you to Suzanne, Bob and Monica for a fabulous trip!
