Pillows filled with non-allergenic goodness. Plentiful and comfy furniture inside and out. Over 2,000 square feet of porch! Billiard/Pool table and washer and dryer. Large laundry and game room expands the total square footage of living space by an additional 700 square feet! We have DISH Network Satellite High Definition television service connected to the 55' High Definition LED Samsung TV! Our home provides guests with Flamingo Point/Water Island moniker oversized beach towels. We also have a commercial grade, Vitamix 5200S to make your favorite smoothie, frozen drink, soup, desert or sauce. The ceiling fans in every room of the house are beautiful and extra quiet with long blades that maintain consistent air flow. Our stainless steel Samsung 28 Cubic Foot 4 door refrigerator provides more than ample space for your provisions. This well lighted refrigerator has a drawer in the middle specifically chilled for sodas/can or other beverages optimum temperatures. Water and ice dispenser on the outside of the door which makes it easy and convenient to draw clean and great tasting water through our whole house UV water filtration system. Of course we still have all the other conveniences as described below. Flamingo Point USVI is your home away from home!

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 with over 2,000 square feet of porch. 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.

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.

Activities: All on Water Island! Honeymoon beach is within walking distance from Flamingo Point. Fort Segarro is great for exploring. The smallest of the four USVI islands at just 491.5 acres - you can hike the whole island if you want! Heidi Honeymoon Grill and Dinghy's Beach Bar offer lunch 11-3 every day on Honeymoon Beach and gourmet dinner on the beach. Most Saturdays, Heidi serves gourmet dinner on the beach - check the Water Island bulletin board or Heidi's lunch station for details. You can also engage Heidi to cater a private dinner at Flamingo Point! You and your crew can enjoy 'Monday Night at the Movies' where Heidi Honeymoon Grill presents a current movie and offers hot dogs, popcorn, candy and drinks. Bingo ($5/card) or Wii Bowling is offered at the pavilion on Honeymoon Beach on Wednesday nights. Dinghy's Beach Bar serves frosty drinks, hot dogs, appetizers, and lunch/dinner from their menu. Both Heidi and Dinghy's offer daily specials. Pirates Ridge on Water Island overlooking Honeymoon Beach has All-U-Can-Eat Pizza on Friday night during season.

About Jami Koenig

We cruised around the US and British Virgin Islands for over 20 years. We are based out of Florida with midwest roots. After sailing the US and British Virgin Islands, we stumbled upon Flamingo Point USVI and fell in love.

Jami Koenig purchased this house in 2003

Why Jami Koenig chose Water Island

Throughout the years we have explored many properties - each with their own unique view. But, after all our searching, the view from 'The Point' is the best in all the Caribbean. The constant breeze, sound of the waves, flora, fauna, blue water on 3 sides, both sunrise and sunset views from the porch, private secluded property, safety of Water Island with warm and friendly residents. Also, uniquely wonderful about our home is that each person has their own private bedroom. No pull-out couches. No futons. Everyone gets their own private space to retreat for quiet relaxation, sleeping, or a serious power nap. Another feature that sets Flamingo Point USVI apart from the rest is that our approx. 1 acre property is completely private and secluded on the southwestern-most point of Water Island. The property has a large grassy area, outdoor shower and foot shower, and large parking/turn-around area. Standing in the Lookout station you will be able to see islands and the Caribbean for miles and miles - For all these reasons, we believe you also will find it paradise.

What makes this house unique

Private bedrooms; each with King size beds. No pull-out couches. No futons. Everyone gets their own private space to retreat for quiet relaxation, sleeping, or a serious power nap.

Large grassy area on the ~1 acre property with plenty of room to maneuver vehicles or just stroll around the property.

Secluded, private, no drive-by traffic

View of the Caribbean Sea from every room in the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I cannot thank you enough for letting us rent your amazing home at Flamingo Point. We had a great time. Your home is beautiful, comfortable, and nicely appointed. We spent a lot of time on the deck, rocking in the wicker chairs, taking in the view and catching up with good friends

It just doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Flamingo Point was everything we expected and more! The location offered spectacular views and was extremely quiet and private. The accommodations were very comfortable and the deck space plentiful. The house was outfitted with everything you could ever need and the Flamingo Warrior (truck) transported the six of us with no problems.

Randy's help was invaluable, especially since our flight was late and we missed the last ferry. He quickly came to the rescue and picked us up at Tickles in St. Thomas. Jami's emails before, during, and after our stay were very entertaining and informative. The Flamingo Point handbook was very well written and spot on.

We will definitely be back!

Birds of a Feather Flock Together Flamingo Point!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, at Flamingo Point everything was just as expected, beautiful, clean and the most fantastic, views from the deck. Their were 6 in our party, we stayed 7 days, enjoyed every aspect of the house and the island. Honeymoon Beach 85 degrees, slight breeze, 80 degree water, the most beautiful color green/blue water, a few sea turtles & beautiful clear & neon fish. We had plans to go to Bingo, Kareoke & Movie night, but it was so peaceful , relaxing & comfortable at Flamingo Point we just stayed at the house, ate, drank & played games, Phase 10 & Mexican Train our favorites. And of course just sitting out on the deck talking about our day & how great it was, and looking at the beautiful sunsets & stars. Beauty in every direction. We did manage to go to Heidi's dinner on the beach, yummy! that night had a fantastic sunset, could not have asked for anything more. Watched all the big boats coming & going, from St. Thomas. Went sailing twice while on the island, one morning sail with snorkling, the other sunset sail. Went on Island Girl, with Capt. Mike. The most gorgeous sunset from the boat, just unbelievable. The views from Flamingo Point deck is just as it shows on the website, fantastic, the stars look so close & the sky unbelievable. Flamingo Point is so peaceful & beautifull & relaxing, we had fantastic vacation!

Bill & Mary Lou BIRDS OF A FEATHER! We had t shirts made up with a lg. flamingo with a colorful beach umbrella, frt. says ( BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER AT FLAMINGO POINT!) We had a great time. Beds are really comfy.

Second Time Just As Good--If Not BETTER

  • 5 of 5

After last year's fantastic experience at Flamingo Point, the eight of us had to come back to get another dose of the fantastic accommodations and weather. We got everything we hoped for and more. This year has been such a pleasant experience AGAIN that we have booked Flamingo Point for a threepeat next January 2016. New living room furniture made watching the Patriot victory over Baltimore more comfortable and the kitchen equipment gave all of us opportunities to do just about anything one could imagine. Jami

and Ron have bent over backward to make our journey such a treat. Thank you for sharing your home with us and we certainly look forward to doing the same again and again. The Diomandes Family

Perfect break from the worst winter of all time

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? This was the perfect house, the perfect view, the perfect island! We took my elderly mother to Water Island for her first trip to the Caribbean. She was comfortable, happy and amazed everyday. Jami was amazing, informative and kind. There is nothing bad to say….we will be back and back and back! Thanks so much for allowing us to use your home for our vacation!

Amenity filled beauty in a tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5

Flamingo Point was all we had wanted and more. The house is located on a cliff with incredible views all around. The furniture was new, comfortable and the king sized beds in each room a plus. The kitchen was equipped with everything anyone would need to prepare simple food to gourmet meals. The veranda made an ideal spot for morning coffee and tea as well as evening dining. It is in close proximity to the beach and even supplied transportation. The owners were accessible and answered any questions we had. The caretaker met us on arrival and was available for any concerns. The only problem we encountered was a faucet which was addressed within an hour of calling. It was a fantastic week of warm sunshine and relaxation.

Idyllic setting for a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we knew we hit the jackpot when we saw the house for the first time. Everything was as described and first class. The kitchen was a chef's dream and the eight of us were at home with all the space in the great room. The views from the wrap around porch were spectacular and we loved watching the hummingbirds. The beds were most comfortable and we had plenty of linen and beach supplies. Without a doubt our favorite pastime was spent at Honeymoon Beach. The water was warm and crystal clear and lunches and drinks at the beach were excellent and affordable. Dinner at Heidi's on the beach Saturday was a real treat and we had a blast with the locals playing bingo on Wednesday. My wife said she had found a "new favorite island". A trip to St John and Trunk Bay was nice but next year (yes we are coming back) we will stay put on Water Island except to shop for supplies on St Thomas. Beside the truck that was provided--(a great vehicle)--we rented a four person golf cart from Rachel which gave us transportation flexibility---a good idea when you have a large group. Thank you Jamie & Ron for being so accommodating. Flamingo Point is divine and a trip back is a MUST!!
