Flamingo Point USVI is one of the largest homes available for you on Water Island. A private waterfront home perched on the edge of a 50' bluff over-looking the Caribbean and St Thomas. Extremely comfortable porch furniture for relaxing coffee-on-the-porch sunrise and boat watching and Caribbean sunset viewing. Our home's 'split' floor plan offers more privacy with 2 bedrooms/1 bath on the north side of the house, 2 bedrooms/1 bath on the south side of the house and a Great Room (living, kitchen, and dining) in-between. 3 of our spacious home's 4 private bedrooms have direct access to a wide, covered wrap-around porch. This is one unique aspect of our home. No futons, sleeper sofas or air mattresses. 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. The kitchen has everything guests need regardless of your expertise including professional knives, All-Clad pots & pans, soufflé, electric ice cream maker, blender, food processor, coffee grinder, etc. Ben & Jerry ice cream recipe and other cookbooks in the upper, right-most cabinet in the kitchen. We also have a chest freezer in the kitchen for extra space to keep your food frozen until you're ready.

In the great room you'll find a portable music player that supports MP3, Ipod, Iphone, and CDs.
We work very hard to maintain and improve our home to ensure that it's comfortable for us, our family, friends and guests. Rates include a one-time bed and bath linens and amenities (kitchen sponge, toilet paper, paper towel, bath soap and hand soap) setup. Our home does not have stairs into or in the main home to better accommodate guests with mobility challenges. 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 offers an outdoor shower. 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. All your favorite board games including large Domino Train set, monopoly, scrabble, Texas hold 'em, Jinga and more. Coolers (hard or soft sided) are all available for our guests to take to the beach, grocery shopping or boating.
Activities: All on Water Island! Honeymoon beach is within walking distance from Flamingo Point. Fort Segarro is great for exploring. The smallest of the four USVI islands at just 491.5 acres - you can hike the whole island if you want! Heidi Honeymoon Grill and Dinghy's Beach Bar offer lunch 11-3 every day on Honeymoon Beach and gourmet dinner on the beach. Most Saturdays, Heidi serves gourmet dinner on the beach - check the Water Island bulletin board or Heidi's lunch station for details. You can also engage Heidi to cater a private dinner at Flamingo Point! You and your crew can enjoy 'Monday Night at the Movies' where Heidi Honeymoon Grill presents a current movie and offers hot dogs, popcorn, candy and drinks.

About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose USVI - 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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
