Flamingo Point USVI is one of the largest homes available for you on Water Island. A private waterfront home perched on the edge of a 50' bluff over-looking the Caribbean and St Thomas. Extremely comfortable porch furniture for relaxing coffee-on-the-porch sunrise and boat watching and Caribbean sunset viewing. Our home's 'split' floor plan offers more privacy with 2 bedrooms/1 bath on the north side of the house, 2 bedrooms/1 bath on the south side of the house and a Great Room (living, kitchen, and dining) in-between. 3 of our spacious home's 4 private bedrooms have direct access to a wide, covered wrap-around porch. This is one unique aspect of our home. No futons, sleeper sofas or air mattresses. Everyone has their own private retreat they can close off from the main active areas to relax, power nap or sleep the night away. The view from every room in the house is spectacular! There is no drive by traffic & the house can not be seen from the road. The front of the house opens onto a large uncovered deck. Another unique feature of our property is the huge grassy area and private parking with large area to turn-around. Whole house UV and charcoal water filtration system supplies the entire home with Mother Nature's sparkling clean, great tasting water. We enjoy cooking so guests will find the kitchen is well stocked with everything they'll need including a 5 burner stainless steel grill on the porch. The kitchen has everything guests need regardless of your expertise including professional knives, All-Clad pots & pans, soufflé, electric ice cream maker, blender, food processor, coffee grinder, etc. Ben & Jerry ice cream recipe and other cookbooks in the upper, right-most cabinet in the kitchen. We also have a chest freezer in the kitchen for extra space to keep your food frozen until you're ready.
Audio and video amenities include large screen High Definition 55' TV, DISH satellite, Blue Ray HD Disc Player with Wifi provides access to your Netflix or other online applications and our library of over 50 DVD movies (of course guests can bring their favorite DVDs!). WiFi internet access is available for your smart devices, tablets and laptops. You can play Wii with the 'Sports Package' with bowling, tennis, golf, and boxing. In the great room you'll find a portable music player that supports MP3, Ipod, Iphone, and CDs.
We work very hard to maintain and improve our home to ensure that it's comfortable for us, our family, friends and guests. Rates include a one-time bed and bath linens and amenities (kitchen sponge, toilet paper, paper towel, bath soap and hand soap) setup. Our home does not have stairs into or in the main home to better accommodate guests with mobility challenges. For those who want to become one with nature (or are just returning to the beach and want to wash the salty sea or sand away), our home offers an outdoor shower. We also have a foot shower next to the coconut palm tree just off the front porch.
Transportation on Water Island: We do also make available if a guest choose the 'Flamingo Warrior' which is a 4x4, crew cab truck with safari in the back. The vehicle is available to registered guests who are licensed and insured drivers 26 years of age or older. There's no additional charge for the truck which will serve as transportation on Water Island only. There is a charge for any gas consumed. Our property manager, a full time resident on Water Island, tops off the tank prior to arrival and once the guests depart, tops off the tank again. In this way we determine how much gas was consumed during the stay and we passthru those costs to the guest. On average, guests staying for a week use 7 gallons of gas. Our Property Manager’s costs have been coming in around $6/gallon. So, average cost of gas for a one week stay has been $42.00.
Flamingo Point USVI has a large teak dining table in the Great Room as well as an equally large table on the wide porch for dining al fresco. You'll find beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas and toys (rafts, noodles, etc.) in the pool table/laundry room. All your favorite board games including large Domino Train set, monopoly, scrabble, Texas hold 'em, Jinga and more. Coolers (hard or soft sided) are all available for our guests to take to the beach, grocery shopping or boating.
