Why John A Black chose Estate Western Water Island
Water Island is especially appealing because it has no resorts, high-rise condos, or time shares. It also has no crime! Just a small island with friendly folk!

Stunning & Peaceful Location
This amazing trip started with John greeting us at the ferry dock with our very own golf cart to use for the week. The view from the house was stunning and was absolutely everything we were looking for in a vacation....it felt like we were living in a tree house, nestled into the side of the hillside with the amazing trade winds blowing gently through the house all day and night. The house was clean, well stocked and our hosts were always available if we needed anything. John took us on a highly informative tour of the island and showed us the best snorkeling location! We were greeted by wild tortoises in our yard, swam with the sea turtles at beautiful Honeymoon Beach (were we spent most of our time) and ate many of our meals at both of the beach bar/outdoor restaurants. It was great to stay in such a calm, quiet and non-touristy location with no crime or worries. The location also allowed us to island hop back and forth to St John and St Thomas for sightseeing, dining and shopping throughout our stay. John and Christine were kind and helpful, interested in making sure we had everything we needed and provided much in the way of tips and guidance leading up to and including our stay. We are already plotting a return trip!
Peaceful and secluded
We had such a wonderful time ! John and Christine are so great - warm, helpful and totally non-intrusive. We are always seeking spots that are not touristy and have quiet and beauty - this property is totally private with a stunning water view. We sat in the screened in porch when it was hot and on the little deck as soon as it was in shade. The path right next to the house ( the rental is a completely separate apartment which even has its own driveway ) leads down to a rocky, wilder feeling shore which is almost always deserted. It’s great for walking and sitting and taking in the waves and wind- watching the pelicans dive too. Every night we relaxed on the deck hearing the waves ! They include a golf cart and it was a blast tootling around the island In it! The white sand and blue water of the island’s main beach- Honeymoon Beach -is beautiful. There are tourists there from cruise ships and other tourist boats at times so it’s best to go early or later if that’s something you would like to avoid. The two little beach bars are fun- we had lunch at Heidi’s - they do play music and at times there are live bands so keep that in mind if you want quiet. We loved snorkeling and there are other spots to explore for that. We did a day trip to St John’s. This was a restorative and wonderful trip - Thank you John and Christine !
Love this place!
We love this place! This place had such a Caribbean feel, a continuous breeze that keeps the mood going, a beautiful view off the back balcony with comfortable lounge furniture. Everything was very clean, comfortable, stocked with so many of the daily essentials, and a golf cart to roam the island at our leisure, day or night. The owners were so friendly and helpful when we had questions and never invaded our privacy.
Our stay was even better than expected
We cant say enough about our stay. The owners are awesome, the apartment is very comfortable and the full kitchen was great, with picture postcard views from the private deck and enclosed screen porch. Having a golf cart to run all over the island was a real plus. Beautiful island with a terrific beach. We will be back.
Location, the unit, the view and the owner all made for an exceptional stay.
We stayed here for three weeks. The Blacks are gracious and wonderful hosts. The unit is perfect for two people. Well equipped, amazing views, wonderful location and use of a golf cart. We highly recommend this VRBO.
Great apartment good for two, golf cart included, great screened in porch and outdoor sitting area
The property has a private drive and entrance. It has a terrific screened in porch where the breeze flows through. There also is an outdoor veranda where I enjoyed a morning coffee. The apartment is perfect for one or two people, very comfortable, and many amenities. The porch also has a bedside hanging couch that you could sleep on.
