Water Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8; 7-8 adults requires owner permission)

Casa Blanca is your secret paradise, often called 'the most spacious' on the island, with fruit trees in the yard (bananas, papaya, lime, pineapple, guava!). The house is a large four-bedroom, three-bathroom house perfect for solitude or entertaining. Enjoy the hustle, bustle, shopping and restaurants of St. Thomas and then return to your private island via a short ferry ride (or rent a boat from us). Water Island has 500 acres with fewer than 100 houses on it.

Boasting privacy, quiet, a secluded beach and all the glorious weather, water, hills, sun, sand, and sunsets that make the Virgin Islands everyone's favorite destination, Water Island is the perfect spot. You may never leave our fabulous, partially-covered, 50' totally private deck with 6 chaises longues, two dining tables with chairs, and plenty of regular chairs as you watch the cruise ships and freighters pass in front every morning and evening. Or you may want to go to Honeymoon Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Whether you snorkel or fish, sun or read, or just sit in the living room or on the deck and admire the view, it never gets any better than Casa Blanca. Take a look at our website for some more pictures and then send us an email or give us a call for more information.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My wife and I have to tell you - we both LOVED our stay in your beautiful home. We had a wonderful time. The layout was absolutely FANTASTIC. We LOVED all the books to read. Played on the keyboard. Lounged on the deck. Thank you SO very much for your hospitality and welcome.

Fred Northup runs a nonprofit organization, Athletes for a Better World, and his wife, Julie, is a lawyer with the firm of Northup McConnell & Sizemore, PLLC. When they're not in paradise, they live in Asheville, NC.

Julie Northup purchased this house in 2009

We bought this house because we love the beauty and privacy of Water Island and were fortunate to be friends with long-time residents who introduced us to it. Like all the Virgins, the water is perfect, and the pace of the island can't be matched. The road is essentially one lane so most people have golf carts. Some like to go to St. Thomas to shop and eat; others never want to leave the view from the deck, or the pleasure of the beach. It's great for kids, since they can roam on their own, catching turtles, following iguanas, fishing or playing in the sand. Whenever we're there, we never want to leave.

Our property manager will greet you, take you to the house, and tell you all you want to know about the house and the happenings on the island during your stay. Casa Blanca boasts three large bedrooms and one smaller bedroom, with a king, a queen and futon, twin beds with a futon, and a double bed. The 35' living area has a large living space facing the water and mountains of St. Thomas, an entertainment area with a 32'' screen TV, and a dining table that can seat up to 10. The house comes with a 6 seat golf cart, with four seats facing forward. There are books, DVDs, videos and games to choose from, as well as some snorkel gear and fishing equipment at your disposal. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for you, but if you don't want to cook, Heidi's Honeymoon Grill usually cooks burgers, chicken sandwiches, etc. on the beach at noon - as well as a candle-lit dinner on Saturday night on the beach, and Dinghy's provides beachside music, a bar, and a restaurant at the other end of the beach. The folks at Pirate's Ridge on the island serve pizza and may have other meals ready for you. Most Monday evenings, people drive their golf carts down for a drive-in movie - a screen stretched between two palm trees on the beach! And Heidi, of course, with popcorn, hot dogs, and a bar! You may be there for bingo nights or full moon nights up at the Fort (a short walk from the house) to watch the sun set and the moon rise. There's nothing like the experience of Water Island!

LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just spent 2 weeks at the house and found it extremely enjoyable. The house is completely furnished with everything you could need, including many of the kitchen consumables you would expect to have to provide yourself. Very private but the entire island is easily accessible on the provided golf cart. The owners are very responsive and the one time we needed maintenance help, the on-island property manager provided better service than I can get at home! If you're looking for a quiet relaxing get-away with a lot of beach time, this is the place. Grocery shopping and tourist activities are available on St Thomas via the ferry (although the schedule can be a bit restrictive at times). If visiting friends hadn't wanted to do the tourist thing on St Thomas, I would have been quite happy to stay on Water Island the whole time. I have no doubt we'll be back.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME WITH EXCELLANT VIEW AND COMFORTABLE FURNISHINGS!

  • 5 of 5
Casablanca is a roomy house with great views of the blue caribbean. There is plenty of room to relax inside the house and on the huge deck. The house is a very short golf cart drive to the beach. It was well furnished with everything we needed and was very clean. Casablanca is in a very private setting. The owners have a great manger that met us and showed us all around. We loved Water Island and hope to return soon. The island is a very special place away from crowds. Extra bonus was internet service! Highly recommended!!!!
