  • 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:)"

  • 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."

  • Best Christmas Ever

    "My husband, son, and I were lucky enough to spend a week here over Christmas. The cottage is a great place for a small family -- the porch has two futons for kids, and the parents can sleep in the bed. With a large, screened-in wraparound porch you feel like you're sleeping in a jungle treehouse. My son had the time of his life on Water Island: turtles everywhere, riding in the provided golf cart (!), swimming at Honeymoon, eating at Heidi's. The cottage had a washer/dryer which was perfect for us light packers. Could not recommend this spot more for families with kids or honeymooners! We can't wait to go back."

  • Close to Honeymoon

    "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!"
