Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, Private Balcony, Pool, Sleeps 4

Sand Dollar is a fully equipped two-bedroom island getaway overlooking Cruz Bay Harbor in beautiful St. John, USVI. Located in Battery Hill, an intimate and private gated condominium community, Sand Dollar is a five-minute walk to gourmet restaurants, boutiques, convenience stores, beach bars, the taxi stand, the ferry dock, and the private beach at Frank Bay.

With just nine homes in Battery Hill, guests can enjoy a peaceful and quiet haven in which to enjoy the charm and ambiance of this special West Indian paradise. The private pool and sundeck is for the exclusive use of Battery Hill owners and guests. The property is surrounded by lush Caribbean greenery, and there is a gas grill as well as a laundry facility for guests to use.

Sand Dollar offers two bedrooms, each with its own air conditioning unit, and each room has a ceiling fan. The master bedroom features a queen-size bed. The guest bedroom has two twin beds. All beds are dressed with soft white linens and topped with ample pillows.

The living room is furnished with comfortable wicker furniture upholstered in tropical fabrics, a flat-screen TV, and a computer desk, and includes an assortment of DVDs and a lending library.

Two sets of double doors lead to the private covered porch that overlooks the harbor and downtown activity. Furnished with table and chairs for four, the porch offers romantic sunsets over St. Thomas and provides views of the beautiful Caribbean Sea, making it a perfect spot for morning coffee and evening cocktails.

The indoor dining area is adjacent to the galley-style kitchen that is fully equipped, right down to wine glasses for every occasion and a blender for making frozen tropical drinks.

Sand Dollar has reliable high-speed Wifi, cable TV, and cell phone service. A full bath with tile shower and sumptuous towels is shared by both bedrooms.

About two-thirds of St. John is national park land. The park service maintains a network of hiking trails throughout the island that are accessible from many locations. Some lead to ruins of sugar plantations, others past petroglyphs and waterfalls.

Guests can rent a jeep to explore the island or take a safari taxi to any of the North Shore’s beautiful white-sand beaches. Trunk Bay, the most photographed beach on the island, is only ten minutes away and features the island’s popular underwater snorkeling trail.

From town it's an easy hike to Solomon Bay and Honeymoon Bay, two of the North Shore's beaches that are not accessible by jeep or taxi. From Honeymoon Bay it’s a short walk to Caneel Bay where you can enjoy lunch and a tropical drink, and then take a taxi back to town.

Sand Dollar has everything needed for a relaxing and affordable family vacation, making it the perfect “home away from home” on St. John.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The “greeter” helped so much by offering to stop at Dolphin Market before we went to Sand Dollar--of course we took her up on her offer! Haven't gotten the courage to rent a Jeep and tackle the native driving, yet, so one trip on a public bus to Salt Pond resulted in us getting stranded, but Concordia folks helped us get home. I know the public transportation is a huge issue on the island--we seem to get a little more "schooled" with every return! We are now so addicted to snorkeling and those beautiful beaches - and Sand Dollar - we'll be back!
