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 from every room in the house is spectacular! 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. We enjoy cooking so guests will find the kitchen is well stocked with everything they'll need including a 5 burner stainless steel grill on the porch.

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 in the Great Room as well as an equally large table on the wide porch for dining al fresco. You'll find beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas and toys (rafts, noodles, etc.) in the pool table/laundry room.

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 with 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 you also will find it 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 grassy area on the ~1 acre property with plenty of room to maneuver vehicles or just stroll around the property.
Secluded, private, no drive-by traffic
View of the Caribbean Sea from every room in the house.
I cannot thank you enough for letting us rent your amazing home at Flamingo Point. We had a great time. Your home is beautiful, comfortable, and nicely appointed. We spent a lot of time on the deck, rocking in the wicker chairs, taking in the view and catching up with good friends
Everything was just Amazing. The views are simply Breathtaking. My family and i just felt at home.
This house has the best view and most comfortable beds > The house comes with everything you need. The owners are wonderful people and send you everting you need to know for your trip. Best experience I have had renting a vacation home . EVER! Jamie thank you. My 5 other friends said it was the best vacation they have ever been on. I cannot say enough about Flamingo Point
We had been to W.I. two times in the past staying at a friends private home. I was not expecting Flamingo Point to be as nice as it was. What a fabulous week. The house was clean, well appointed, and the little truck got us wherever we wanted to go on the island. We had several gourmet meals prepared in a kitchen equipped like home. What a treat. I highly recommend Flamingo Point for your Water Island vacation.
Flamingo Point is every bit as amazing as the photos and descriptions -- and then some. The property is absolutely stunning with the most incredible water views from the covered wrap-around deck. The home is located on a bluff nearly surrounded by water, so it's quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed seeing pearly-eyed thrashers, magnificent frigatebirds, bananaquit birds, lizards and more on the property.
The house is stocked with everything a family needs, including tons of kitchen equipment, plush beach towels, games, movies and generous seating in the living area (three sofas) and on the deck (dining table, low round table, chairs for reading, etc.). There also were more beach chairs, pool noodles and floating chairs than we ever could have used! We also made use out of the grill on the deck. Having the water treated for drinking -- and having water and ice in the refrigerator door -- was great. We also appreciated having a washer and dryer available.
The Flamingo Warrior truck was great for getting around the island, especially when we used the four-wheel drive. With a party of five adults, we also rented a golf cart from Rachel to give us flexibility.
Jami was SUPERB to work with. She provided ample information about the house and Water Island, including a comprehensive guidebook she emailed us. She responded to emails quickly and answered all of our questions. I've never rented from such a thoughtful, engaged owner.
The on-island managers Randy and Kathleen were fantastic. They met us at the ferry dock and got us all set up in the home. It was great to know they were available if we had any issues. (Although we didn't have any!)
If you're thinking of visiting Water Island, I highly recommend Flamingo Point.
I can not think of one thing that I can complain about. The house was clean. The showers had great water pressure. You had plenty of beach toys, chairs, and towels for us to use. The view and breeze were nothing short of amazing. I loved it. One of my best vacations ever. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place for such a reasonable price. Sincerely, Earle and Sherri Wood
Water Island has moved to the top of my vacation places! The house was everything we expected and exactly how it looked online. It was very clean and cute, loved the decor and wood beams! The owner is one of the NICEST people you will ever meet!! Jamie went above and beyond anyone I have ever rented from.The view on the deck is amazing!! You will love your stay here! We spent a lot of time on Honeymoon beach which is gorgeous!!! Very clean and quiet beach. The food and drinks at Dinghy's were amazing!! On Saturday night do dinner at Heidi's, it was so good! The locals are great, be sure to go see Bijan and Isla at Dinghy's and Casha at Heidi's...best servers! The fish tacos, lionfish and painkiller's were my favorite! Water Island was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had!!! LOVED IT!!!
