USVI - Water Island villa description

Contemporary Luxury Waterfront Estate - Villa Acquabella invites you to experience the architectural beauty and comfort of this spacious luxury vacation villa. Our Estate adorns the shore of secluded and pristine Water Island, located just minutes from beautiful St Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The panoramic and beautiful views of the St Thomas harbor and mountains, and west to the small cays and the island of Culebra, Puerto Rico are astounding especially at night when the lit up mountains twinkle and glisten.

Water Island is a treasure yet to be discovered, complete with a gorgeous half-moon shaped beach and bay known as Honeymoon Beach. The property is a two minute walk to Honeymoon beach or you may ride in the golf cart(s) provided. The beach hosts a beach bar and restaurant, “Dinghy’s Beach Bar & Grill” on the south end of the beach providing excellent burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, salads, snacks, Dinner Specials, cold beer, and full bar including delicious frozen drinks. (Signature Drink: “Creamy Dinghy”). On and off premises catering, bags of ice, free WiFi and ATM. Rentals available for beach lounges, snorkel gear, paddle boards, and kayaks. Dinghy's also has corn hole, ladder game, bocce ball and 2 horse shoe pits. Live music provided on Sunday afternoons.

You may also choose to enjoy some biking and hiking to the old fort, or around the 491.5 acre (199 Hectare) island. Water Island is easily accessible via ferry service from Crown Bay Marina, or private skipper and boat available for special trips to St Thomas or other islands. World class shopping is nearby on Main Street, the Waterfront, Havensight Shops, and Yacht Haven Grande Marina.

Villa Acquabella comprises over 6000 square foot (600 square meters) of open living space with expansive outdoor patios and galleries. The designer swimming pool expands the entire waterfront posterior of the house measuring approximately 75 feet (25 meters).
To entertain you in the evenings, we have provided our guests with flat screen LCD TV’s in the great room and in the master bedroom with satellite programming as well as DVD players, and Ipod music sound system with many zoned speakers. WiFi internet is available throughout the property. The fitness/game room provides a Body Solid universal machine, dumbbells and bench, stepper, and elliptical machine; for fun and games try the billiards and darts, as well as the outdoor ping-pong table and other table games.
The great room contains a large modern kitchen with all stainless GE appliances, center cooking island and hood, with five counter height stools. In this open space you will find the main dining room on one side and the comfortable living room on the other side. Al fresco cooking and dining is just outside in the covered lanai. An outdoor bar and stools, lounging sofas, and chaise lounges awaits you for outdoor entertaining.

Sleeping accommodations include a designer master bedroom and bath with study on the second level: king luxury bed, (2) single sleeper divans, desk, and amazing views. On the main level in the west wing, two guest rooms are en suite, with queen beds and great views; direct access to pool deck. Fourth bedroom is great for children with two trundle beds and bathroom adjacent.

The two bedroom guest villa and studio villa are included in the Estate rental or they can be rented separately by visiting the VRBO listings on the Water Island page.

The Villa Acquabella Estate is ideal for larger groups such as weddings, family reunions, or corporate retreats.
