Water Island House Rental Photos and Description
Large 4 BR King beds 2 BA, sleeps 8, kitchen, dining room, living room

You and your crew will enjoy many conveniences that will make your stay more comfortable and fun. In early December/2013, we replaced the king size mattresses and box springs in each of the 4 bedrooms. Sheets are 400 thread count, blankets are soft and lightweight and pillows filled with non-allergenic goodness. We've also recently installed a pool table downstairs in the room where the washer and dryer are located. This large room expands the total square footage of living space by an additional 700 square feet! We now have DISH Network Satellite High Definition television service connected to the 55' High Definition LED Samsung TV! Our home provides guests with Flamingo Point/Water Island moniker oversized beach towels. The bread machine is a convenient way for guests to make fresh bread, rolls, pizza dough and other baked goods. Automated, easy and convenient - especially perfect if you have someone with gluten-free needs. We also have a commercial grade, Vitamix 5200S so you can bring your favorite smoothie, frozen drink, soup, desert or sauce recipe. The ceiling fans in every room of the house are beautiful and extra quiet with long blades that maintain consistent air flow. Our stainless steel Samsung 28 Cubic Foot 4 door refrigerator provides more than ample space for your provisions. This well lighted refrigerator has a drawer in the middle specifically chilled for sodas/can or other beverages optimum temperatures. Water and ice dispenser on the outside of the door which makes it easy and convenient to draw clean and great tasting water through our whole house UV water filtration system. Of course we still have all the other conveniences as desribed below. Flamingo Point USVI is your home away from home!

Flamingo Point USVI is one of the largest homes available for you on Water Island. A private waterfront home perched on the edge of a 50' bluff over-looking the Caribbean and St Thomas; 'split' floor plan incl. Great Room (living, kitchen, and dining). Our home is spacious with 4 private bedrooms - 3 with direct access to a wide, covered wrap-around porch. This is one unique aspect of our home. No futons, sleeper sofas or air mattresses. Everyone has their own private retreat they can close off from the main active areas to relax, power nap or sleep the night away. The view is spectacular. Visit our webcam. Enter flamingopointusvi.viewnetcam.com and type 'Flamingo' for User Name and 'pointusvi' for the password. Click on the tab titled 'Single' and choose from the preset options on the left hand side of the screen! There is no drive by traffic & the house can not be seen from the road. The front of the house opens onto a large uncovered deck. Another unique feature of our property is the huge grassy area and private parking with large area to turn-around. Whole house UV and charcoal water filtration system supplies the entire home with Mother Nature's sparkling clean, great tasting water. The kitchen is well stocked with everything guests need to cook including professional knives, All-Clad pots & pans, soufflé, electric ice cream maker, blender, coffee grinder, etc. Ben & Jerry ice cream recipe and other cookbooks in the upper, right-most cabinet in the kitchen on the north side. We enjoy cooking so guests will find the kitchen is well stocked with everything they'll need including a 5 burner stainless steel grill. In addition to the 28 cu ft refrigerator/freezer that has a special drawer for canned beverages which ensures optimum temperature, we also have a chest freezer in the kitchen.

Our home has a 'split' plan layout with 2 bedrooms/1 bath on the south side of the home, 2 bedrooms/1 bath on the north side of the home, and the Great Room in-between. Watch your favorite channels and sports programs on our 55' LED HDTV available from DISH Network satellite.

Extremely comfortable porch furniture for relaxing coffee-on-the-porch sunrise and boat watching and Caribbean sunset viewing.

We work very hard to maintain and improve our home to ensure that it's comfortable for us, our family, friends and guests. Our home does not have stairs into or in the main home to accomodate guests with mobility needs. For those who want to become one with nature (or are just returning to the beach and want to wash the salty sea or sand away), our home offers an outdoor shower. We also have a foot shower next to the coconut palm tree just off the front porch.

Transportation on Water Island: We do also make available if a guest choose the 'Flamingo Warrior' which is a 4x4, crew cab truck with safari in the back. The vehicle is available to registered guests who are licensed and insured drivers 26 years of age or older. There's no additional charge for the truck which will serve as transportation on Water Island only. There is a charge for any gas consumed. Our property manager, a full time resident on Water Island, tops off the tank prior to arrival and once the guests depart, tops off the tank again. In this way we determine how much gas was consumed during the stay and we passthru those costs to the guest. On average, guests staying for a week use 7 gallons of gas. Our Property Manager’s costs have been coming in around $6/gallon. So, average cost of gas for a one week stay has been $42.00.

Flamingo Point USVI has a large teak dining table indoors as well as an equally large table on the wide porch for dining al fresco while watching the sunset. As mentioned previously, King Size beds and 60' blade super quiet ceiling fans in all bedrooms. You'll find beach chairs, umbrellas and toys (rafts, noodles, etc.) in the pool table/laundry room on the lower level. Ample porch chairs with cushions and a gas grill on the porch. All your favorite board games including the large Domino Train set in the kitchen cabinet above the chest freezer. In the great room you'll find a portable music player that supports MP3, Ipod, Iphone, and CDs. Rates include a one-time bed and bath linens and amenities (kitchen sponge, toilet paper, paper towel, bath soap and hand soap) setup. We have 400 thread count sheets for all our King size beds. Coolers (hard or soft sided) are all available for our guests to take to the beach, grocery shopping or boating. Activities: All on Water Island! Honeymoon beach within walking distance from Flamingo Point. Fort Segarro is great for exploring. The smallest of the four USVI islands at just 491.5 acres - you can hike the whole island if you want! Heidi Honeymoon Grill and Dinghy's Beach Bar offer lunch 11-3 every day on Honeymoon Beach and gourmet dinner on the beach. You can also engage Heidi to cater a private dinner at Flamingo Point! Monday Night at the Movies where Heidi Honeymoon Grill presents a current movie and offers hot dogs, popcorn, candy and drinks. Bingo or Wii Bowling at the pavilion on Honeymoon Beach on Wednesday nights. Dinghy's Beach Bar serves frosty drinks, hot dogs, appetizers, and lunch/dinner from their menu. Both Heidi and Dinghy's offer daily specials. Pirates Ridge on Water Island overlooking Honeymoon Beach has All-U-Can-Eat Pizza on Friday night.

We cruised around the US and British Virgin Islands for over 20 years. We are based out of Florida with midwest roots. After sailing the US and British Virgin Islands, we stumbled upon Flamingo Point USVI and fell in love.

Jami Koenig purchased this house in 2003

Throughout the years we have explored many properties - each with their own unique view. But, after all our searching, the view from 'The Point' is the best in all the Caribbean. The constant breeze, sound of the waves, flora, fauna, blue water on 3 sides, both sunrise and sunset views from the porch, private secluded property, safety of Water Island, warm and friendly residents. Also, uniquely wonderful about our home is that each person has their own private bedroom. No pull-out couches. No futons. Everyone gets their own private space to retreat for quiet relaxation, sleeping, or a serious power nap. Another feature that sets Flamingo Point USVI apart from the rest is that our approx. 1 acre property is completely private and secluded on the southwestern-most point of Water Island. The property has a large grassy area, outdoor shower and foot shower, and large parking/turn-around area. Standing in the Lookout station you will be able to see islands and the Caribbean for miles and miles - For all these reasons, we believe we found paradise.

Private bedrooms; each with King size beds. No pull-out couches. No futons. Everyone gets their own private space to retreat for quiet relaxation, sleeping, or a serious power nap.

Large grassey area on the ~1 acre property

Secluded, private, no drive-by traffic

View of the Caribbean Sea from every room in the house.

What can I say? This was the perfect house, the perfect view, the perfect island! We took my elderly mother to Water Island for her first trip to the Caribbean. She was comfortable, happy and amazed everyday. Jami was amazing, informative and kind. There is nothing bad to say….we will be back and back and back! Thanks so much for allowing us to use your home for our vacation!

Flamingo Point was all we had wanted and more. The house is located on a cliff with incredible views all around. The furniture was new, comfortable and the king sized beds in each room a plus. The kitchen was equipped with everything anyone would need to prepare simple food to gourmet meals. The veranda made an ideal spot for morning coffee and tea as well as evening dining. It is in close proximity to the beach and even supplied transportation. The owners were accessible and answered any questions we had. The caretaker met us on arrival and was available for any concerns. The only problem we encountered was a faucet which was addressed within an hour of calling. It was a fantastic week of warm sunshine and relaxation.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for writing a review of your stay at Flamingo Point! Glad to hear you enjoyed your "home away from home"! Welcome you and your crew back any time!

Upon arrival we knew we hit the jackpot when we saw the house for the first time. Everything was as described and first class. The kitchen was a chef's dream and the eight of us were at home with all the space in the great room. The views from the wrap around porch were spectacular and we loved watching the hummingbirds. The beds were most comfortable and we had plenty of linen and beach supplies. Without a doubt our favorite pastime was spent at Honeymoon Beach. The water was warm and crystal clear and lunches and drinks at the beach were excellent and affordable. Dinner at Heidi's on the beach Saturday was a real treat and we had a blast with the locals playing bingo on Wednesday. My wife said she had found a "new favorite island". A trip to St John and Trunk Bay was nice but next year (yes we are coming back) we will stay put on Water Island except to shop for supplies on St Thomas. Beside the truck that was provided--(a great vehicle)--we rented a four person golf cart from Rachel which gave us transportation flexibility---a good idea when you have a large group. Thank you Jamie & Ron for being so accommodating. Flamingo Point is divine and a trip back is a MUST!!

The layout was perfect for us and really, really loved the simplicity and covered porches - mornings and evenings were wonderful out there! The kitchen was great, so well equipped, and with 7 of us put to full use.

First time flying; first time swimming in the Caribbean sea on a beautiful beach. It is a wonderful vacation. All the girls made it too and we're having a ball! Made homemade ice cream. I think we'll get fat for eating so much. The girls and I will take home a lot of precious memories. The house is very nice. The view is spectacular. The big cruise ship coming in. The time went by so fast!

Best Trip Ever!!!!

We have been to Water Island twice prior to this trip, but decided to bring our three teenagers along this time around. We had such a wonderful time. We couldn't have asked for more! The accomodations were more than adequate. We brought the majority of our food with us, so the well stocked kitchen was amazing. The kids loved all wildlife they had opportunity to observe. All, of which, we do not have in our home environment. They did lots of exploring. The truck made it easy to get around with all our stuff. At night, we ate and hung out on the deck. We had a blast playing the Star Wars Monopoly game, too. The residents of Water Island are so nice and helpful. We will definately be returning for a fourth time and plan to stay on Flamingo Point. It was a great vacation filled with many wonderful memories!!

This was our second time staying on Water Island. It was great. So peaceful. The view was breathtaking. We brought our children ages 5 and 1. They had a great time. We spend our days on the beach. Had supper at the house. We had a great time. Very kid friendly. They loved the lizards and turtles that visited every night. There was a constant cool breeze on all sides of the house. The home was clean and well maintained. It was close to the beach and to the dock for the ferry. Jami was very helpful prior to our trip and while we were on our trip also. She helped us find great places to eat while visiting St. John. I would recommend this rental to anyone visiting Water Island. We cannot wait to visit again.

Owner's Response: To the crew from Missouri, thank you! Appreciate you choosing Flamingo Point USVI and I sincerely enjoyed responding to your questions both before and during your trip. I have so much fun "seeing" the island through our guests' experience and sharing in the excitement. It is always a pleasure. You'll have to tell me which restaurant suggestion you enjoyed on St. John so that I can recommend to future guests. Especially glad that you found the house clean and well maintained. We work very hard to ensure everything is in good working condition and comfortable. We welcome you and your curious little fun seekers back any time! Thanks again for posting a review and thank you so very much for staying at Flamingo Point USVI!

No Need to Leave the Island

We had an awesome week at Flamingo Point. We woke up with the roosters, then prepared breakfast in our well equpped kitchen. Some of us then walked to the beach while the remaining came to the beach in the truck with supplies for day. We spent most days at the beach until late afternoon before returning. Evenings were peaceful. We spent the evenings playing cards on deck. What a view!!!.We watched cruise ships, sunsets, and the lights of St. Thomas. I had worried a little if there was enough on the island to keep the young adults(5) in our party occupied. No worries!! They were all happy with the totally relaxing atmosphere, most coming up with a plan on how they could live there. All were happy with WiFi service also. The house was spacious. Plenty of room inside and out for us all to congregate! Jamie was always just an e-mail or text away if we needed advice on anything. Home looked just like the pictures on-line. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. The book we received from the Owners about Flamingo Point and the area was extremely useful. A great place to meet up with your adult children for a family get-a-way!! We would come to the same place again. Very happy with our choice to stay at Flamingo Point. It gave new meaning to the word "vacation".
Owner's Response: Thank you so much posting review of Flamingo Point USVI! Great to hear your crew enjoyed your stay. Special thanks for leaving the house in such great shape! After a long travel day, you made our arrival so easy. Would love to have you come back!
