Giorgio and Lisa Bertrand enjoy spending time on this beautiful property with family and friends. You will enjoy the island and the home's amenities, which are plenty for a Caribbean vacation rental. The Bertrand's have applied their design tastes and dedicated their resources in making your stay as comfortable as possible. Cheers!
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008
We have loved Water Island and all of the Virgin Islands (US and BVI) for over 25 years!
Comfort and peacefulness! The ammenities of the guest house abound, and make for a very pleasant vacation stay.
We spent a wonderful week on Water Island relaxing and exploring. The property was lovely and everything is within walking distance with the ferry and the beach so close by. Honeymoon beach is a wonderful spot to enjoy the sun and have lunch. Trips over to St. Thomas are easy for some sight seeing, shopping and to try out a new restaurant. The owners are very easy to contact and the home is lovely. We really enjoy our trips to Water Island and can't wait to come back soon! Great spot for a relaxing vacation in the tropics with sand, sun and beautiful views.
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful Villa. Best scenic view on the Island. The property was well kept and came equiped with all your needs.....Inside and out! Quiet, quaint Island and close enough to enjoy St. Thomas and the British VI. The people were very friendly and accommodating. Rates are very reasonable for this property. Highly recommend!!
The villa is nice and very nicely appointed. Wonderful breezes mean you'll never need to run the air conditioner even on very hot days. We didn't even need the ceiling fans that are in all the bedrooms and also on the lower level in the kitchen/livingroom area. Each morning we'd sit on the veranda eat breakfast and watch the cruise ships come in.
The pool is very pretty, but we didn't use it much when we were there because the water level was very low. We were there for 10 days and it wasn't cleaned or vacuumed at all. In fact the first few days we were pulling garbage out from the previous renters (fruit, plastic cups, wrappers etc) and there was a lot of leaves and dirt at the bottom. The filter almost never ran (probably because the water level was low).
This is the first house closest to the ferry dock which makes it very handy if you want to take a trip over to St. Thomas. On the other hand, when we were there there was a fair amount of harbor traffic going to St. Thomas in the overnight hours so at night with the windows open it was fairly noisy. Noise from Tickles Bar on St. Thomas also carries, but generally is done by 11p.
Honeymoon beach is lovely. It is a short walk but the way back is uphill so I'd definately recommend taking the villa provided golf cart. A note on honeymoon beach, it is generally peaceful and quiet until around 11:30am when the party boats come in filled with cruise ship passengers. Some days there were as many as 3 party boats at the beach at once. They generally stay until around 2:30 or 3, that's the perfect time to head back to the villa for lunch and some time on the veranda/pool area and then head back down around 3.
We were there just after a very large party left and the other 2 accomodations (the house and the lower level apartment) at the villa were not completely cleaned up yet. For the first several days it seemed that many of the kitchen items were missing (shelves were labeled but the items weren't on them), we finally emailed with the owner who got the manager to find the items for us. We also only had 2 beach towels for the entire 10 days, since the cottage has bedding for 4 we'd suspect there should be at least 4 beach towels. Perhaps the rest that belonged in this guest cottage were in the other accomodations, but we made do. When you check in I'd definately recommend you check to make sure everything is there.
I'd recommend this villla (and water island) for those looking for a restful vacation.
This property is just beautiful and is located in the best location on Water Island. It is within walking distance to the Ferry dock and to the beautiful Honeymoon Beach. The view from the balcony is breathtaking; looking out at the main island of St Thomas, which sparkles with light at night. The 2 bedroom "cottage" is decorated in a contemporary fashion and feels like home. There is so much outdoor space which is wonderful in this tropical paradise. We would definitely return someday.
Our experience from initial inquiry to departure was perfect. The owners anwsered all of our questions and were very accommodating. The property managers were equally as helpful and made our transition to Water Island flawless. The property was everything they said it would be. Adjacent to the ferry dock so hopping back and forth from St Thomas is as easy as it gets yet still secluded and quiet. The listings photos were accurate and the property was very clean. The rental came with a golf cart that will seat 6 or 4 and some chairs and such. There were some spices on hand, beach towels and chairs for your use. Honeymoon Beach is less than 3 minutes away by foot and almost instantaneous by cart. We spent most of our time there enjoying the sun, moon and Heidi's and Joe's food and spirits. Bring cash as credit card machines don't exist there. Plan your trip. Contact Heidi's and Joe's for their hours and plan your meals accordingly. Guest Villa is fully equiped for cooking and serving. Locals are very welcoming. Take the cart and tour the island. Enjoy the incredible views and the WWII era gun bunker at the south end of the island. Blue Island Divers will pick you up at the Water Island ferry dock for diving or snorkeling. This island is as laid back as it gets. We will be back!
