About The Owner

Gwendolyn and I are retired academics, now dividing our time between three residences and traveling the world as time permits. Our four year old Yorkshire Terrier accompanies us almost everywhere.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

Why The Owner chose Water Island

On retiring, we decided we wanted to enjoy the warmth and sunshine, warm water and warm people of the Virgin Islands. It is a little more complicated than that, but look for the details in Gwendolyn's upcoming Virgin Islands counterpart to A Year in Provence!

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy the peace and quiet, the lovely beach, the private pool, the breathtaking sight of the world's largest cruise ships slipping by at dinner time on the gallery. We will take a drive up to Fort Segarra for moonlit romance on the cliff overlooking the southern side of Water Island. But most of all we enjoy our friends and neighbors and the easy-going ambience of life on Water Island. The Monday Night Movie on the Beach, Heidi's gourmet dinners on the beach on Saturday nights, midnight dips in our private, lighted pool, and morning showers in the two-person show stalls with a view of turquoise waters. Once or twice a week we will take in a restaurant, regatta, or West Indian celebration for a little spice in our lives.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nature here is more welcoming than in the Midwest. We've explored the blue Caribbean so thoroughly, stared down fish of many bright colors..and yet each time we return, we're excited by a new discovery…So we've enjoyed both stays--in February for our own daughter's destination wedding and for this "snorkeling experience." Both were wonderful, exciting, healing excursions with the beauty of these islands.

What a wonderful hideaway

  • 5 of 5
We visited Water Island and stayed in Villa Papaya in June 2014. What a beautiful home and an outstanding pool. We had a wonderful time on the secluded beach, snorkeling with so many tropical fish, exploring the island via golf cart and swimming with the sea turtles. Katie was a wonderful liaison for the house and the island. We would go back to the house/island in a second.
