Overview

Water Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths(Sleeps 4) + Semi-attached condo

Windswept 1 has primarily been used as a family vacation home since it was built in 2009. We have decided to make it more available to rental guests beginning with the 2013-2014 season.

Windswept 1 is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom oceanfront condominium located on quiet, peaceful Water Island, USVI. Described in a Boston Globe feature article (December 6, 2009) as 'A Homeland Treasure', Water Island is the smallest and most recent addition to the U.S. Virgin Islands. This 491.5 acre island has a population of less than 500 people, and is the best choice for those who are truly looking to relax and get away from modern civilization.

Windswept 1 is a semi attached condominium in one of the most beautiful tropical settings of the Caribbean with ocean views from every window. It is one of five cliffside condominiums built on 1.3 acres of land. Each condo is individually decorated by the owner. Windswept 1 has state of the art kitchen appliances including a French door stainless refrigerator and convection stove. The floor tiles are hand made from Mexico. You will even notice the paw prints in the tiles that occurred as they were drying in the Mexican sun.

Enjoy your morning coffee relaxing on the front patio watching the sun come up over the tip of St. Thomas as the cruise ships enter the harbor. In the afternoon, enjoy drinks at the swim up bar in the shared 12x30 pool, overlooking Flamingo Bay.

Honeymoon Beach is a short five minute drive in the golf cart, provided for your use, during your stay. You can soak up the sun, enjoy the warm, turqoise waters of the Caribbean and have lunch at Heidi's Honeymoon Grill or Dinghy's. Heidi also offers a gourmet dinner on Saturday evenings on the beach. Enjoy excellent food and drink with a gorgeous sunset over the ocean.

Monday night movies on Honeymoon beach is a favorite. The movie is free and you can purchase hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks. Where else in the Caribbean can you pull up to a large screen movie on the beach in your golf cart?

When you tire of all this, St. Thomas is a short, ten minute ferry ride away. The ferry makes frequent trips daily. Enjoy shopping, first class restaurants, golf and many other activities. It is also easy access to St. John and the BVIs. If you are interested in snorkeling or deep sea fishing, private charters from Water Island can be arranged.

At the end of your day, retire to your king size master bed and watch the lights of St. Thomas twinkle while listening to the waves crashing against the rocks and the trade winds blowing.

Windswept is truly the seaside retreat of your dreams. We welcome you to be our guest for your next tropical vacation! You deserve it!

Inquire if additional space needed. VRBO#265978 is a very similar attached unit.

About Karen Dumond

My wife and I have vacationed for years in the Caribbean and always hoped one day to have a place of our own on one of the islands. We learned of a piece of property on Water Island for sale that had once housed a military barracks. We visited the island and the site for the first time and loved it. The island was quiet and the people were very welcoming. The oceanfront views from the barracks site were spectacular. We jumped at the opportunity to build, along with four other couples from Maine.

We have rented our condo on a smaller scale since 2010. For the 2013-2014 season, we are making our condo more available for rental guests. We would love the opportunity to share it with you. Karen Dumond, who along with her husband owns Windswept 2, manages the rentals for both Windswept 1 & 2.

Karen Dumond purchased this condo in 2009

Why Karen Dumond chose Water Island

Windswept sits on one of the most gorgeous pieces of property that we have seen in our travels through the Caribbean. Even though we didn't know anything about building in the Caribbean, we had to go for it! The purchase and building was a three year process with many stresses. Building on an island several hundred miles away had many challenges. As we think back, we laugh at these challenges now as we are sharing Windswept with family and friends.

What makes this condo unique

Water Island is where we go to get away from it all. The sun, the pool, the beach and the cool breezes are all very relaxing. We have all the amenities that we have at home but none of hassles. The island is very quiet but not remote. St. Thomas is a quick, 10 minute fery ride away if you want to go to a nice restaurant or do a little shopping. The best of both worlds.

Can't Wait to Visit Again!

  • 5 of 5

If I could sum our stay on Water Island up in one word, it would be amazing. The accommodations at Windswept were wonderful. We never got tired of the views. What a great way to wake up in the morning! Having my morning coffee while looking out at St. Thomas and St. John in the distance, sure beats my normal routine of drinking my morning coffee while sitting in traffic. We had everything we needed, and more. I cook a lot, as I have dietary restrictions, and found the kitchen to be very well stocked. It was great to have such wonderful property managers, as well. Doug and Rachel were great and very quick to help us with anything that we needed while we were there. Karen was also extremely helpful before we went. I always have a million questions about everything, and she was excellent at thoroughly answering me in a very timely manner. My husband and I have traveled to many different places and have visited numerous Caribbean destinations. This was by far our favorite. We like to vacation somewhere one time only so that we can experience new places, but we are already planning another visit to Water Island. We have never visited somewhere before where we felt so welcomed and relaxed. The community on Water Island is wonderful and close knit. The activities on the beach during the day and at night were plenty of entertainment for us, (4 adults in their 30's). Dinghy's has beach games such as cornhole, and ladderball to play on the beach, which we definitely took advantage of. The Monday night movie at Heidi's was great, as well. Since I can't eat much, I didn't partake in eating at the beach, but the rest of my party ate quite a few meals at Dinghy's and Heidi's, and loved everything they had. All in all, we had a great trip, and a great stay in a beautiful condo. Many thanks to the owners for allowing others to share in the delight of being "Windswept".

Aptly named!

  • 5 of 5

Situated at the top of a cliff, it caught the trade winds which blew constantly. A couple of strong squalls came through and we felt like the house was going to blow away. It was quite an experience to watch them come in over the water, rain and blow, and disappear as quickly as they came. The pool side is sheltered from the winds, so is very comfortable for swimming.

I have never before rented a vacation property that had been so completely stocked with everything one could possibly need. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of linens and towels. The kitchen has everything, minus the food, needed to whip up a meal. The views from up on top are spectacular in all directions.

We loved the size of the island and being able to use golf carts for transportation. We explored everywhere we could and even took a drive the night of the full moon.

Honeymoon Beach is just the right size for the island, except when the cruise ships bring hordes of people in. Over the week we were there, only one day was crowded. We enjoyed spending our days sunning and playing in the water and evenings playing bingo and watching a movie or listening to live music on the beach.

The condo is clean and well taken care of. The people who manage it make themselves known without being at all intrusive. It was nice to know someone was close by in case we needed anything. I highly recommend a stay on water Island and especially in this condo.

Wonderful Spring Break Trip

  • 5 of 5

We loved Water Island and Windswept 1! The condo was perfect for my husband and I and our 2 teenage boys. We thoroughly enjoyed the East and West views, the tropical breezes and the pool. Water Island was also a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of St. Thomas especially with all the cruise ships coming in. And Honeymoon Beach is fantastic. We truly enjoyed exploring the island, relaxing and swimming at both the beach and the pool, and the beauty of the USVIs.

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Windswept. Everything in the condo was clean and pretty, and the views you wake up to in the morning......Wow! I loved being that close to the ocean where you could hear the waves and being able to walk to Honeymoon Beach. Also loved the cold water dispenser there in the condo, since I like to drink a lot of water. I cannot think of anything negative to say. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks for the great hospitality!

Great Views and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This property sits atop a hill will views of both sides of the island. From one perspective you overlook a mirina and St. Thomas and an almost 360 degree view of the Caribbean is on the other. The accommodations are modern with Cable TV and internet and the kitchen is fully equipped including a Keurig coffee maker! Both bedrooms are very comfortable. Additionally there is a very handsome pool with views. Additional, the property is extremely well maintained, and Katie the property manager will help you plan your stay on Water Island. My wife and I had a remarkably great time here and would recommend it to all.
