"My husband and I love to travel with our two young children. This house and island were the perfect vacation. We think it might have been one of the best vacations ever. The Island is safe, un-populated and beautiful. Beth, the owner, was accessible and friendly and answered all of our questions before we arrived. We arrived on St Thomas by plane and called the property manager of Slow Mocean and let him know which ferry we would be arriving on. He and his wife met us at the dock and helped us get our family, luggage and groceries up to the house and gave us a quick tour and then left us with keys to the house and golf cart. From the moment we stepped foot on Water Island everything was easy and laid back. The house is beautifully furnished in a comfortable island style with great art. The two bedrooms are adjoined by a large Jack-n-Jill bathroom. Both bedrooms had nice furniture and very comfortable beds. The Living Room has a set of huge glass doors that looks out over St. Thomas. You truly can not grasp how serene and beautiful the view from the deck is from pictures. I drank my coffee out there every morning and enjoyed dinner and wine out there every night.
The island is very easy to explore by golf cart. We explored several beaches, but Honeymoon was by far the best. We would go early in the morning and stake our claim to one of the umbrellas and put our cooler and lounge chairs out for the day. We stayed at the beach from 8-4 everyday. This would normally seem impossible with two children ages 6 and 8 but it was dreamy. The water is as clear as a swimming pool with no current or waves. You can see down the entire beach from any spot so the children could swim and roam and swing on rope swings. We ate lunch at Heidi's several times. Her food is fresh and delicious. We snorkeled with Sea Turtles and pretty fish all right within the swimming area of the beach. We met several other families who were on the island and hung out with them during the day and had dinner parties in the evening. A couple things to know- Cruise ships bring day excursions over to Honeymoon beach. They only stay for an hour or so but it can get crowded. If you get your spot early enough to get a free lounge chair from one of the bars they are not an issue and actually provide good entertainment.Lastly, before we went we thought we would need to leave Water Island to go on excursions to other islands so we wouldn't be bored. Not true. Don't plan anything. Just relax and enjoy!"

"Villa Acquabella is great for families with children - pool on site, laundry, wifi, large kitchen, golf cart, and very close to Honeymoon Beach and the ferry landing. We had some beautiful family dinners outside by the pool overlooking St. Thomas. We will be back next year!"

"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!!"

"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."
