Lisa Bertrand purchased this villa in 2008
Why Lisa Bertrand chose Water Island
We chose Water Island in The US Virgin Islands for its natural beauty, tranquility, and friendliness of the 100 or so residents. Also, because of the ease of travel in arriving and departing: St Thomas airport is just minutes away from the house.
What makes this villa unique
We enjoy entertaining: cooking, grilling, cocktails and wine. We mostly enjoy beautiful Honeymoon Beach: snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, cycling, and exercising. We also enjoy the massive swimming pool with gorgeous views, playing horseshoes, and the billiards table
