USVI - Water Island house description

Villa Terra Nova is a two bedroom, two bath private home perched on a hillside on Water Island, just off St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. This villa has one of the most spectacular views on Water Island. The wraparound deck provides dramatic, breezy viewing experiences from three different sides of the villa. You truly feel 'on top of the world' here. Privacy is maximized on the one-acre private residential lot. Owners have made constant updates to keep the villa tasetfully decorated and functional. Villa Terra Nova is the original VRBO Water Island rental, delighting guests for over ten years. Please view the many guest testimonials at our website.


The Villa is tastefully decorated inside, but you will probably spend most of your time outdoors on the wraparound deck with fabulous views. The elevation (180 feet) means that you will get constant soothing trade winds. You will feel 'on top of the world.' This villa is a truly unique getaway. The home and grounds are yours alone during your stay; you do not share any parts of the property or any amenities with other vacationers.

Water Island is situated in world famous St. Thomas harbor: close enough to St. Thomas so that you can enjoy all of its amenities, but when you are on Water Island you are in a quiet, secluded retreat. You are furnished with your own golf cart (the preferred Water Island mode of travel!) to get around on the island during your stay.

Water Island is developed only with private residences set on large private lots with gorgeous views. The island can be reached by ferry from St. Thomas (a convenient public ferry makes frequent runs from the St. Thomas waterfront each day). Water Island has several beautiful beaches and many scenic walks. Guided bicycle tours are available.

Quaint Water Island experiences include Saturday night dining under the stars with Heidi, Water Island's very own award-winning gourmet chef, and Monday night outdoor movies shown under the stars. Drive in and watch from your golf cart as you are served popcorn and other yummies by the wandering servers.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: Steph and Bill are professionals who live and wok in Panama City, Florida.

                      Why the Owner Chose USVI - Water Island:
                      While on a sailing sabbatical in 1997, Bill and Steph explored the Carribean. The USVI seemed an ideal location for a retirement home because of its variety of amenities, affiliation with the United States, and is spectacular beauty.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Golf cart rides are a big part of the fun! It's the best way to explore Water Island. Walks on Water Island can become quite strenuous. The cart is an extremely valuable amenity for comfort, convenience, exploration, and transporting groceries and guests. The back deck has one of the most panoramic views on Water Island, and has as much square footage as the inside of the house. The house sits on almost an acre - it's quiet and has a very private feel.
