Contemporary Luxury Waterfront Estate - Villa Acquabella invites you to experience the architectural beauty and comfort of this spacious luxury vacation villa. Our Estate adorns the shore of secluded and pristine Water Island, located just minutes from beautiful St Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The panoramic and beautiful views of the St Thomas harbor and mountains, and west to the small cays and the island of Culebra, Puerto Rico are astounding especially at night when the lit up mountains twinkle and glisten.

Water Island is a treasure yet to be discovered, complete with a gorgeous half-moon shaped beach and bay known as Honeymoon Beach. The property is a two minute walk to Honeymoon beach or you may ride in the golf cart provided. The beach hosts Dinghy's Beach Bar & Grill is open daily serving lunch and dinner from 11 am to 8 pm; Bar is open from 10:30 until 11 pm or later. Dinghy's offers a full kitchen, ATM machine, Free WIFI, covered tiki dining, tables with umbrellas, beach chairs with umbrellas, floating bar, rum barrel tables with stools, flat screen TV's , corn hole and ladder game, and an overall new vibe.

The menu offers beach side favorites: big burgers, sandwiches, salads, wraps, tacos, fried snacks, fish, BBQ, and pizza ( BBQ and Pizzas on select nights). Delicious and creative daily specials are based on product availability and freshness! The Bar has the islands best bartenders serving creative frozen drink delights, cocktails, a variety of cold beers and wines, juices, and sodas. Try a chilled bottle of crisp dry-yet-fruity rose on the beach or rent snorkel gear, kayaks and Stand up Paddle Boards. Quickly becoming the alternative to Jost Van Dyke trips, Dinghy's Beach Bar is being discovered by many VI residents who want to get away from it all without the hassles and expense of going to the BVI. No passport or fees required to come to Water Island!! Karaoke on Thursday, Full Moon Parties,Live Music on weekends, special event catering, wedding receptions, all available at Dinghy's!

Easily accessible via ferry service from Crown Bay Marina, or private skipper and boat available for special trips to St Thomas or other islands. Ask owner about their 40 Foot Cruisers and/or 27 Foot Whaler. World class shopping is nearby on Main Street, the Waterfront, Havensight Shops, and Yacht Haven Grande Marina.

Villa Acquabella comprises over 6000 square foot (600 square meters) of open living space with expansive outdoor patios and galleries. The designer swimming pool expands the entire waterfront posterior of the house measuring approximately 75 feet (25 meters).

To entertain you in the evenings, we have provided our guests with flat screen LCD TV’s in the great room and in the master bedroom with satellite programming as well as DVD players, and Ipod music sound system with many zoned speakers. WiFi internet is available throughout the property.

The great room contains a large modern kitchen with all stainless GE appliances, center cooking island and hood, with five counter height stools. In this open space you will find the main dining room on one side and the comfortable living room on the other side. Al fresco cooking and dining is just outside in the covered lanai. An outdoor bar and stools, lounging sofas, and chaise lounges awaits you for outdoor entertaining.

Sleeping accommodations include a designer master bedroom and bath with study on the second level: king luxury bed, (2) single sleeper divans, desk, and amazing views. On the main level in the west wing, two guest rooms are en suite, with queen beds and great views; direct access to pool deck. Fourth bedroom is great for children with two trundle beds and bathroom adjacent.

The two bedroom guest villa and studio villa are included in the Estate rental or they can be rented separately by visiting the VRBO listings on the Water Island page.

About Lisa Bertrand

Lisa and Giorgio Bertrand are business entrepreneurs with a joie de vivre! We enjoy entertaining more than dining out. We live in our villa here on Water Island when it is not rented, travel or go boating when it is rented! We have 3 grown children and one beautiful grand daughter. We hope that all of our guests feel the love we share in our home and enjoy all that the magnificent Virgin Islands has to offer. Cheers!

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

Close to Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Villa Acquabella is great for families with children - pool on site, laundry, wifi, large kitchen, golf cart, and very close to Honeymoon Beach and the ferry landing. We had some beautiful family dinners outside by the pool overlooking St. Thomas. We will be back next year!

Honeymoon Beach Wedding Stay

  • 5 of 5

Villa Acquabella was amazing, and perfect for our needs. We rented the whole property and were able to sleep 16 adults and 4 children with room to spare. Had we need to sleep more, we could have used couches. The property was gorgeous, the pictures really don't even do it justice. The golf carts were fun to drive around the island to snorkel at various beaches and visit the fort. Honeymoon beach was very close, and for non-beach bar meals we shopped at the Pueblo supermarket close to the ferry landing. The property had all the cooking stuff we could ever want. Really a great family vacation for less than hotels!!

Two Thumbs Up!

  • 5 of 5

It was quite by accident that we met Lisa and Georgio, and stayed in their beautiful home for two weeks. We had rented another island home that didn't work out, and they welcomed us into Villa Acquabella at a moments notice. Their home is very clean and well appointed. There are different levels and areas to accommodate small or large groups. The view is lovely. From the comfy furniture around the pool, we watched several cruise ships go in and out of St. Thomas. The location is super - walking distance to the ferry and to Honeymoon Beach. This was our first time to Water Island. We absolutely fell in love with the island and the people! We will be back!!

This was the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Bertrands home on Water Island. It's a beautiful home with everthing you can ask for. Very spaciuos with water views from all rooms. Each bedroom has their own bathroom. The location is great it's the first house when you get off the fairy from St Thomas. The kitchen is nicer than our kitchen at home with a dinning room and outside patio with a large table and lots of seating over looking the infinity pool. They have several golf carts and veichles for the guests to use around the Island and the beach is minutes away from the house. It takes about half and hour from the airport to get to the home. Great place can't wait to go back!!

Second Time, Just As Great!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time I've rented from Lisa and her husband, and as always, a great property with immaculate support. I'm getting ready to rent it again for the third time, and when I say rent, I've rented all three pieces, the main house, the two-story condo and the studio apartment. For the level of quality and fairly newly built construction, all a bargain for this area of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

I've rented from others on Water Island before, but this by far beats all the other properties out there. They deliver what they promise and the photos don't do the property justice as it's nicer than you see online. Not to mention, it's the best and closest property to the ferry dock, which makes things much easier when you're headed to St. Thomas. In fact, you can see the ferry coming in from the back balcony as well as beautiful St. Thomas--which looks spectacular at night from the poolside view.

The house is fully stocked with linens, towels, cutlery, dishes and more for all your needs. It's got a great swimming pool, fitness gym and lots of extras. If you need anything, you also get a phone number of the local people that help manage the property that will go out of their way to help you. You can't go wrong! I highly recommend this place, well worth it!
