Jan Robinson purchased this villa in 1992

Why Jan Robinson chose US Virgin Islands

Jan and Bob Robinson sailed the Caribbean on their sixty foot yacht for more than 20 years, exploring the islands and entertaining guests. Choosing a beautiful island with an affiliation to the United States as a second home seemed like a great idea. They bought a home on the east end of St. Thomas and then the two acres of waterfront property, adjoining Honeymoon Beach on Water Island.

What makes this villa unique

We built this villa, so it has everything we hope you enjoy. Open, light, spacious, great kitchen, comfortable living area, indoor and outdoor dining, amazing views from everywhere. At night hearing the water lap gently on the shore and seeing the twinkling lights over on St. Thomas. Having a private beach and a short walk to the adjoining beautiful Honeymoon Beach, where we have fun bars and restaurants; drive-in movies on Mondays and karaoke on Thursdays! You can do everything in minutes or nothing, At the villa we have peace, quiet, and privacy! Hideaway Villa is a special place for special people!

AWESOME HIDAWAY...отличный отдых дом.

  • 5 of 5

THE COTTAGE WAS PERFECT. CLEAN AND JUST THE RIGHT SIZE. THE QUIETNESS OF WATER ISLAND LEAD TO MANY NIGHTS OF SUNSET DINNERS ON THE GIANT DECK, THAT HANGS OVER A COVE FILLED WITH SAILBOATS. IT'S THE FIRST HOUSE UP THE HILL FROM HONEYMOON BEACH WITH TWO BEACH GRILL/BARS LOCATED RIGHT ON THE BEACH. THE VIEW IS THE BEST FEATURE OF THE HOUSE. GET A GOLF CART TO GET AROUND AND REMEMBER KEEP LEFT. WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR. VERY PLEASANT STAY FOR A WEEK OR TWO. ENJOY!!

WHAT A VIEW!! Great Getaway from a hard winter!

  • 5 of 5

Hideaway Cottage is located just uphill form Honeymoon Beach and offers one of the best views from Water Island.Mega yachts anchor right within a few hundred yards off your deck. One level living space is great and well laid out. Very comfortable king size bed in the master bedroom and each bedroom is air conditioned which is a huge plus. Water Island is a perfect place to get away from it all! Would definitely recommend this cottage and Jan went out of her way to help make our stay a memorable one. Even signed a copy of her cookbook for us! Close to the ferry, unreal view and close to beach made Hideaway a great choice for us. You will be glad to stayed at Hideaway!

Best Vacation Ever at Water Island!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin to describe the perfect vacation! The house offers the best views and best location on the Island! Imagine going to sleep each night to the peaceful sounds of the ocean, awaking to breathe-taking views and being able to be on the beach within minutes. Honeymoon Beach offers great food and great prices at Heidi’s, and great drinks and music at Dinghy’s. It is peaceful enough to relax and read a book, or enjoy the companionship of other travelers at Dinghy’s. Water sports are available and the snorkeling is wonderful. While it is only a ferry ride to visit other islands, who would want to leave! Jan was wonderful, having the completely prepared for our vacation, and helping with both arrival and departure. Everyone on Water Island was hospitable and welcoming. We are making our travel plans to go back. We cannot wait!
