About Jim & Pat
We are a hard working couple from just south of Detroit Michigan. Born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, we were looking for an amazing warm Caribbean spot to get away from the cold winters. St. Thomas, USVI hit the spot !
Jim & Pat purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Jim & Pat chose Estate Smith Bay
The first time we stayed on island, we stayed on the east side near Pavilions & Pools. We've had great times on Sapphire , Lindquist and Coki beaches; dining and hanging out in Red hook. We've stayed downtown, but there’s no beach and lots of people. The north side is too quiet. We like the east side much better. Fewer people, and more fun. Our Villa at Pavilions & Pools, is one of the few villas with a sea view & view of St. John island. It is perfectly suited for couples who prefer privacy, yet its only a very short walk to Sapphire beach, has it's own on-site restaurant, and is close to town. It’s the perfect location for everything you might want to do.
What makes this Condo unique
There are many unique benefits to our Villa. It has a larger living space than properties right on the beach, yet is still very near the beach. With its own private pool, spacious bedroom, separate kitchen, living and dining area, this is more of a private home rather than a hotel, but with a concierge and restaurant on-site.

Very nice villa. Private and cozy. Owner and property staff very friendly and helpful. No issues whatsoever.

Thank you for the great review Mark! We’re very happy to know that both of you enjoyed our place and your stay. We would be honored to have you return anytime!
Little Piece of Heaven
What a wonderful place to stay. Pictures are accurate, place was spotless and provided everything we needed. Pat was pleasant to work with and responded very quickly to all my questions. Looking forward to returning, hopefully staying longer next time!

Relaxing and comfortable with great location!
We very much enjoyed our stay at Pavilions and Pools Serenity. Owners Pat and Jim provided a lovely, clean and comfortable space. We enjoyed having our coffee each morning and wine/beer and cheese on some afternoons on our private patio overlooking St. John. There is a large wall blocking the resort from a busy road nearby, but we weren’t overly bothered by the sound of traffic – on the whole we found the environment very peaceful. We got a kick out of the chickens and little lizards on the property and the iguana which hung out in a tree just below the patio during our entire week stay.
Pat was accessible by text and was very helpful and prompt in answering any questions.
Donette at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Beach towels and snorkel equipment were available at the front desk which was a bonus and we were pleased to find beach chairs, beach bags, and a cooler in the condo which we used every day. The king size bed was very comfortable, and the shower was large and the water hot!
The on-site restaurant Pangea was excellent. The restaurant is open-air with a relaxing ambiance and a nice view of St. John and the food was well-prepared and delicious. We actually ate there 3 nights out 7 because it was so convenient and we enjoyed it so much!
We were skeptical about the walk to Sapphire Beach only being 5 minutes – but we found it literally took us 5 minutes to walk from our unit, through the gate, down the private road for Crystal Cove, and through the public parking lot to the beach. Sapphire Beach was lovely with a nice little beach bar and a coffee shop. My husband actually walked to the coffee shop a couple mornings towards the end of our stay because our own coffee supply was running low.
It was just a few minutes’ drive into the town of Red Hook– we ate in town a couple of the nights, enjoyed lattes at Lattes in Paradise a couple mornings, and Moe’s Fresh Market is right there where we picked up what we needed for the week.
We took the ferry to St. John twice – once on the car barge, and the second time using the pedestrian ferry. Again, we were skeptical how easy it would be to catch the Safari Bus right out front (only $1/pp) into Red Hook, hop on the ferry, enjoy a day on St. John, and grab a taxi once back in Red Hook - but it all played out smoothly. We had a wonderful week here and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable private place to stay on the east end.
Thank you for the fabulous and complimentary review Laurie! We are very happy to know that you had a great week, and that you found our descriptions accurate! Also, that everything was to your liking including the bed, as its a new high end hotel mattress.
Its great that you were able to explore St. John twice. Its such a pretty & natural island. You two were great guests and we'd be honored to host your next trip to St. Thomas. Thank you and take care.
The view was fanatic. loved watching the iguanas in the trees. the grill was fairly new and very useful. the flowers in the back were gorgous also. my husband loved the bed. The owners were also very helpful.
Thank you for the terrific review Cheryl! We're glad to hear that you both enjoyed our view of the sea and the island St. John.
We did some upgrades in the fall, so the bbq is fairly new, as is the bed.
The bed is new with a top-of-the-line mattress, so I'm really happy to hear that you enjoyed it!!
You were great guests, & we would be happy to have you back at any time!!
Our Villa is located on the beautiful east side of the island. You can watch the sun rise while having coffee on the pool deck, or if you are so inclined, join a yoga class on Sapphire beach (usually) at 7 am.
Sapphire Marina has Charter boats available to book for excursions to the other USVI & the BVI. Go island hopping, bar hopping, coral reef hopping to snorkel with the marine life.... so many things to do and so little time to do it all!
And remember the great little town of Red Hook. There are many, many charter boats and yachts available there for hire. From island hopping & snorkeling, to deep sea fishing, you are sure to find it there.
At the end of the day, Serenity is waiting. To welcome you back to privacy, quiet and relaxation. Refresh yourself in the private pool and dry off in the warm evening breezes with a cool beverage in hand. Life is good on the island!
