Lisa and Giorgio Bertrand are business entrepeneurs with a joie de vivre! We enjoy entertaining more than dining out. We live in St. Petersburg, Florida when we are not travelling or resting up in Water Island. We have 3 grown children and one beautiful baby grand daughter (believe it or not!) We hope that all of our guests feel the love we share in our home and enjoy all that the magnificent Virgin Islands has to offer. Cheers!
The Owner purchased this villa in 2008
We chose Water Island in The US Virgin Islands for its natural beauty, tranquility, and friendliness of the 80 or so residents. Also, because of the ease of travel in arriving and departing: St Thomas airport is just minutes away from the house.
We enjoy entertaining: cooking, grilling, coctails and wine. We mostly enjoy beautiful Honeymoon Beach: snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, cycling, and exercising. We also enjoy the massive swimming pool with gorgeous views, playing horseshoes, and the billiards table.
April 2016-rented with18 extended family members as part of my daughter’s wedding. Many things about this rental made for a great experience, others were disappointing & disgusting. The house is in a lovely location & is nicely laid out for a large group.Lisa let us know that 2 rentals before us, cockroaches were brought into the property. What she didn’t say was that the infestation was still very active. All week long, every time we opened a drawer or the pantry, large numbers of cockroaches would scatter. We did let Lisa know that the infestation was ongoing, but nothing was done. Lisa emphasized a water shortage. We were respectful & took short showers. For the price, I think we deserved warm showers. On Thursday & Friday the main house was completely without any water when the pump failed.Lisa accused us of causing the circuit breaker to fail because we used the air conditioning too much; the 1st time it happened we had been onsite for only 1 1/2 days. It was repaired by Friday evening. Be careful, as there are several rust holes in the golf cart & it cannot make it up the hill from Dinghy’s.The pool is small but lovely. It is not truly an infinity pool & it was not filled properly so the filter did not work.
The furnishings are ok, although showing some age. The couch was covered in white canvas type material. It was clear that it had been in use, probably for years. It was soiled, but not so badly that we couldn’t use it.Lisa also charters 1 of her boats. We had arranged a charter to the British Virgin Islands but the engines wouldn’t start.3 weeks after we left, I asked about a refund for the boat charter. Lisa told me she was going to get the couch re-covered and would not return the charter payment.Photos of the couch appear to show a poorly cleaned section of the couch.I think Lisa attempted to clean the couch & the chemicals used caused discoloration. I disputed the refund of the boat charter with PayPal & credit card company and they refunded it. That left the security deposit for the house.1 of the guests did get sick in the guest villa & damaged a shelf & toilet. I did not dispute the cost of those repairs. 2 months after our rental ended, Lisa informed us that re-covering the couch cost thousands. She also mentioned repairs to screens. We did not damage the couch/screens. She is keeping the entire deposit. This is why I strongly recommend a walk though and signoff from Lisa before leaving the rental.
Words cannot describe how beautiful and clean this property is. Everything was perfect. We were welcomed and made to feel right at home the second we came off the ferry. Lisa was always available to answer questions and to take care of all our needs. We loved it so much, we are returning in a few months.
I had such an amazing time staying at Lisa's house on vacation. I just want to emphasize that you are in such a beautiful place already, and to be able to wake up every morning and see the views every which way. It's breathtaking.
The house is also super clean. We stayed in the guest house during our time in the USVI and it was the perfect size for all of us. It's in a very nice location, close to the beach and the ferry to go over to St. Thomas.
I reccommend this place to everyone who visits the island. Also, don't forget to stop at Dinghy's for some buffalo wings and rum punch's ;)
Our 2015 Christmas in a white castle on Water Island provided plenty of “white” that we hardly missed our Minnesota snow at all—from the white towels and bedding to the white sandy beach of Honeymoon Bay! Our entire family of 16, including: young grandchildren, teen cousins, adult siblings, spouses, and grandparents enjoyed our close to 2-week stay and all of the memories made. Activities together were plenty--patio card games, pool floating, sunbathing, beach relaxing, fishing, cooking fresh caught fish, Dinghy’s events, horseshoes with the locals, karaoke, snorkeling, swimming by sea turtles, hermit crabs, TV movies, Vikings football, ferry rides, touring Water Island on golf carts and touring St. Thomas with the $1 shuttle rides. The morning view of sailboats in blue water and the evening view of white twinkling St. Thomas lights were spectacular. And the short rain showers brought double rainbows. Crown Bay Marina on St. Thomas by the ferry has a really good ice cream shop, Tickles pub, souvenir shops, and groceries. (A tip to save grocery trips: We had planned some meals ahead and brought extra suitcases with items like: frozen meats, salami, cheese, trail mixes, and boxed wine.) The Gourmet grocery store by the ferry had anything else we needed. We did go through many tortilla wraps, bagels, and snack crackers. Dinners at Dinghy’s were delightful too, including the Lionfish and their French fries. Home away from home for the holiday was perfect. Thanks Lisa for offering such a great vacation palace on a fun little island!
I stayed here with my family for a week and I could not have asked for a better house to stay in! It is very modern and has an amazing view of St Thomas. The owner of the house, Lisa, was always available if we had any questions about the house. There is a beautiful pond in front that we loved to sit around and enjoy the sound of the fountain. We loved that the house came had a pool and came with the use of a golf cart. It made it much easier to get back an d forth from the beach and ferry dock. The owners restaurant is called Dinghys on the further side of the beach. That place is the coolest beach bar I have ever been to. I highly recommend staying at this house on water island because the location is perfect!
Our wedding party included ages ranging from 3 mos. to 85 years. We had no problem transporting everyone with the use of two golf carts and a truck. The views from the Villa are spectacular and was the perfect backdrop for the wedding reception. The open concept of the kitchen, living and dining room was a perfect gathering place when you weren't outside on the covered lanai, in the infinity pool or playing ping pong or billiards. Honeymoon Beach is an absolutely beautiful location for a wedding at sunset! The Dinghy and Heidi's restaurant/bars anchor both ends of the white, sandy beach. We also had use of two tandem kayak at the beach. It was easy to arrange pickup at Phillips Marina for a fishing trip and excursion to St Johns and the BVI. There was something to do for everyone. The owners were very helpful with any of our questions and concerns. We would highly recommend Villa Acquabella.
