Overview

About the property

Gorgeous views; Quiet and Private; Spacious home; Lots of amenities!

I am sorry to inform you that Flamingo Point is impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Jose.

What we know now: It has been confirmed that at least part of the roof has been damaged/gone. Communications systems and infrastructure have been heavily damaged hampering our ability to get more details.

It will take extended time before Flamingo Point will be restored. There is no way we will be able to recover from this Hurricane for 2017/2018 season @ Flamingo Point. Therefore, we will be contacting our guests individually regarding cancellation.

Of course we are devastated by this news. But, most importantly, the primary concern continues to be the safety and well being for all those in the Caribbean as well as Florida. Be prepared. Be smart. Be strong and brave. Stay safe.

About Jami Koenig

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

Why Jami Koenig chose Water Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

When it rains, water flows into the cisterns. You will feel the difference in the softness of rain water on your skin and hair after showering. 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 also offers an outdoor shower.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

The view was spectacular. The home was fantastic. The ease of access to and from the home was great. The house amenities were top notch.

My husband and I spent a week at Flamingo Point with our 3 adult children and their companions. We had the time of our lives together feeling like we were in paradise each day. We will definitely return.

Jamie - the property owner - was the best 'hostess from afar' that I have ever encountered. She went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be.

Thank you, thank you!!!

Fabulous getaway on Water Island

  • 5 of 5

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 a great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

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.
