We work very hard to maintain and improve our home to ensure that it's comfortable for us, our family, friends and guests. Our home does not have stairs into or in the main home to accomodate guests with mobility needs. 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 indoors as well as an equally large table on the wide porch for dining al fresco while watching the sunset. As mentioned previously, King Size beds and 60' blade super quiet ceiling fans in all bedrooms.

In the great room you'll find a portable music player that supports MP3, Ipod, Iphone, and CDs.

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, 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.

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
