"This was our first time on Water Island and our 9day stay was very enjoyable. The home was well furnished, owners were delightful and very helpful. We have rented beach homes at other places and this was the best we've ever used."

"We spent a wonderful week on Water Island relaxing and exploring. The property was lovely and everything is within walking distance with the ferry and the beach so close by. Honeymoon beach is a wonderful spot to enjoy the sun and have lunch. Trips over to St. Thomas are easy for some sight seeing, shopping and to try out a new restaurant. The owners are very easy to contact and the home is lovely. We really enjoy our trips to Water Island and can't wait to come back soon! Great spot for a relaxing vacation in the tropics with sand, sun and beautiful views."

"THE COTTAGE WAS PERFECT. CLEAN AND JUST THE RIGHT SIZE. THE QUIETNESS OF WATER ISLAND LEAD TO MANY NIGHTS OF SUNSET DINNERS ON THE GIANT DECK, THAT HANGS OVER A COVE FILLED WITH SAILBOATS. IT'S THE FIRST HOUSE UP THE HILL FROM HONEYMOON BEACH WITH TWO BEACH GRILL/BARS LOCATED RIGHT ON THE BEACH. THE VIEW IS THE BEST FEATURE OF THE HOUSE. GET A GOLF CART TO GET AROUND AND REMEMBER KEEP LEFT. WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR. VERY PLEASANT STAY FOR A WEEK OR TWO. ENJOY!!"

"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!"
