USVI - Water Island condo description

If we do not have the availability you need, please inquire about VRBO # 331951.

Water Island was described as 'A Homeland Treasure' in the front page, feature article of the Boston Globe travel section (December 6, 2009).

Windswept 2 is a newly constructed (2009) two bedroom, two bathroom oceanfront, semi-attached condominium perched on a cliffside. It is one of five condominiums located on this 1.3 acre property with breathtaking views from every window. At night enjoy the sparkling lights of St. Thomas across the bay. Listen to the waves crashing against the rocks, the trade winds blowing and taste the salt from the ocean on your lips.

Enjoy your morning coffee on either the front or back lanai watching the cruise ships arrive in St. Thomas Harbor. In the evening, enjoy cocktails at the swim up bar, in the 12X30 shared pool, overlooking Flamingo Bay. If you tire of lounging around the pool, the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean can be enjoyed at Honeymoon Beach, which is a short five minute ride in the four person golf cart available during your stay. You will find Heidi's Honeymoon Grill on the beach offering lunch most days of the week. New for the 2013-2014 season is Dinghy's on the beach which offers lunch, dinner and drinks seven days a week. On Saturday evenings, you can enjoy the true island experience of an excellent gourmet dinner, served by Heidi, on the beach (In season). Relax with the sound of the water lapping at the shore and the sun setting over the ocean.

For a change of pace, St. Thomas is ten minutes away by public ferry offering shopping and world class restaurants. If golf is your passion, the beautiful golf course, Mahogany Run is located on St. Thomas. After enjoying the city amenities, return to quiet, laid back Water Island where golf carts out number vehicles.

Inquire if additional space needed. This villa can be rented with VRBO #331951.

Keywords: Tropical paradise, high end, surrounded by mesmerizing views, turquoise water, gorgeous nearby beach

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My wife and I live in Falmouth, Maine. I am a retired Portland firefighter and my wife is a retired nurse. We love to travel, meet new people and see amazing places. We love living on the rugged coast of Maine most of the time. Our winters can be long and we always look forward to escaping to the warm tropics.

Why the Owner Chose USVI - Water Island:
A few years ago, friends told us about a piece of oceanfront property in the Caribbean that housed an old five-unit military barrack. Our friends were looking for four other couples to build a total of five units on the site. While my wife and I never considered the possibility of owning oceanfront property in the Caribbean, this seemed like a great opportunity. Without even discussing it, my wife and I looked at each other and said 'yes'. In 2006, we put a down payment on the property, before even seeing it. We had never heard of Water Island! If our adult children did something like this, we would call them irresponsible! Stepping on the property for the first time was unbelievable. How could we not have known about Water Island? The pictures we had seen just didn't come close to the amazing views all around. Maybe we weren't so crazy after all! This was definitely one of those 'Once in a lifetime opportunities!' We knew immediately that owning a vacation home on this spot was going to be very special. We could not believe that we had been lucky enough to fall into this and kept waiting for everything to fall apart! For the next three years, we planned and worked towards completing this villa from our home in Maine. No easy feat, and lots of 'oh by the ways!' Building on an island is difficult enough, doing it from a distance, adds to the fun!!! In the Fall of 2009, our vacation villa was completed adjacent to the villa of our good friends. We started sharing it with family and close friends. Their first reactions on seeing Water Island and Windswept were: 'Unbelievable, gorgeous, breathtaking!' In 2010, we had our first rental guests. We consider ourselves fortunate to have wonderful guests who enjoy Windswept and Water Island as much as we do. We love to hear that we have helped them have a relaxing vacation and truly get away from it all. We get a lot of satisfaction from helping people create lasting memories and hope you are our next guest!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Coffee in the morning on the front patio while watching the sun come up over the tip of St. Thomas as the cruise ships enter St. Thomas Harbor. Dinner time drinks at the swim up bar as the sun sets in the west. Riding around the island in the golf cart and stopping for lunch at the beach. Saturday night dinner on Honeymoon Beach as the sun sets and the Monday night movies at the beach. Quiet evenings with the only sound being the waves crashing against the rocks below and the trade winds blowing.
