  • Paradise in Slow Mocean

    "Slow Mocean is the perfect name for this vacation home in paradise. We arrived at night and as soon as the front door was opened, the large sliding glass doors along the back of the home revealed a twinkling view of St. Thomas and the lights of the boats below. It was truly stunning and the perfect introduction to the home and the island. My first day there I awoke before everyone else and just enjoyed looking at the quaint details in the home such as the colorful metalwork fish framing the arched doorway and the varied pieces of sea themed art, followed by some quiet time appreciating the lovely ocean views while sipping coffee on the expansive balcony. While sitting there I saw turtles and hummingbirds! When everyone awoke we loaded up the golf cart with snorkeling gear provided in the basement and headed to the beach. The snorkeling was amazing. My goal for the trip was to get some underwater footage of a sea turtle and I accomplished my goal on the first day!!! I have given the footage to the owner to share with you! After hours of fun in the sun, you can stop by Dinghy's or Heidi's on Honeymoon beach for the best fish tacos (Heidi's) or fries (Dinghy's) around. Heidi's also has their famous Beachwacker drink that is a must try. Please eat first! As others have mentioned, a day trip to St. Thomas for shopping is a must, but go when the cruise ships are in because that is when ALL the shops and kiosks are open and you will find the best deals. One day at St. Thomas for shopping was enough for me because I prefer the beauty and peace of being either at the beach or in Slow Mocean. Slow Mocean also has tons of rainy day amenities such as DVDs and games, but fortunately for us, we had 80 degree sunshiny days every single day of our stay so all of my time was at the beach. Coming home in the late afternoon and taking a nap under the fans with the trade winds blowing was so calming. My bed was extraordinarily comfortable as well. I slept, not like a baby because they only sleep for a couple of hours at a time, but more like the dead! There was no waking me from the soundness of my Slow Mocean sleep. All in all, the trip was truly a paradise. Slow Mocean is the perfect place to stay in the perfect setting. There is a reason everyone gives it 5 stars:)"

  • Aptly named!

    "Situated at the top of a cliff, it caught the trade winds which blew constantly. A couple of strong squalls came through and we felt like the house was going to blow away. It was quite an experience to watch them come in over the water, rain and blow, and disappear as quickly as they came. The pool side is sheltered from the winds, so is very comfortable for swimming. I have never before rented a vacation property that had been so completely stocked with everything one could possibly need. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of linens and towels. The kitchen has everything, minus the food, needed to whip up a meal. The views from up on top are spectacular in all directions. We loved the size of the island and being able to use golf carts for transportation. We explored everywhere we could and even took a drive the night of the full moon. Honeymoon Beach is just the right size for the island, except when the cruise ships bring hordes of people in. Over the week we were there, only one day was crowded. We enjoyed spending our days sunning and playing in the water and evenings playing bingo and watching a movie or listening to live music on the beach. The condo is clean and well taken care of. The people who manage it make themselves known without being at all intrusive. It was nice to know someone was close by in case we needed anything. I highly recommend a stay on water Island and especially in this condo."

  • What a wonderful hideaway

    "We visited Water Island and stayed in Villa Papaya in June 2014. What a beautiful home and an outstanding pool. We had a wonderful time on the secluded beach, snorkeling with so many tropical fish, exploring the island via golf cart and swimming with the sea turtles. Katie was a wonderful liaison for the house and the island. We would go back to the house/island in a second."

  • Wonderful views and great location!

    "Windswept 2 was spacious and comfortable. It had everything we needed to make out trip special. Doug was very helpful getting us settled and making sure we knew all about island life :) The beds were very comfortable and the AC helped on the very humid evenings. The music and food at Honeymoon beach was so enjoyable...Hats off to the chef! Too bad it rained on Monday because Heidi did not offer the movie on the beach that evening. We had a good mix of relaxing at Water Island and exploring the other Islands of USVI and BVI. We'll be back!!"
