  • Ideal Laid-Back Hideaway on Water Island

    "This review is way overdue. Peg's Place was wonderful place to relax and Peg herself was a warm and gracious host to our group of three (myself, my daughter and a friend of hers). It was a short 5 minute cab ride from the airport in St. Thomas to the Crown Bay Marina, where you can enjoy a drink and some food at Tickles Dockside Pub while waiting for the small (max. 25 passengers) ferry to Water Island. The 10 minute ferry ride eases you into full relaxation mode. Peg and a few helpers met us at the Water Island dock and escorted us, in a couple of golf carts, up to the house where we left shoes and worries behind. The house is up on the ridge where it enjoys amazing ocean views and wonderful breezes while being only a few minutes' golf cart ride from Honeymoon Beach. Peg's Place was clean, comfortable and well-stocked, including with beach towels and coolers. We loved sitting out on the covered Lanai at breakfast gazing out at the ocean and various boats. Peg gave us lots of tips and recommended one of the great highlights of our trip - an afternoon sail (and snorkel) with Captain Nick Cancro on his beautiful 48' yacht named Marie Elena, which left right from Honeymoon Beach. We also utilized the grocery delivery service recommended by Peg, which worked out great. We could not have asked for a better trip. Thank you, Peg!!"

  • Very Special Island Getaway--highly recommend!

    "Not only is Water Island beautiful and quiet in and of itself, Palm Cottage is tucked away for the most romantic and private vacation location we have experienced. The cottage is easy golf cart driving distance (or you can walk it) to Sprat Beach and Honeymoon Beach. We visited both beaches every day during our stay. We loved exploring the island on a golf cart. No traffic, no stress, no cab fare! The cottage was comfortable and was clean and well furnished. The sheets appeared new. It had everything we needed. The property manager was nice and answered all of our questions about the island and gave us a tour. We saw sea turtles while snorkling at Sprat! We saw the land turtles all over the place in the afternoons. June was a little warm during the later afternoon. We just took a late afternoon swim. At night the breezes were cool. It was very pleasant. We took a day trip to St Thomas. It was easy. We hope to be able to return to Palm Cottage and would recommend this property to friends."

  • Highly recommended! Thanks Sean and Deb!

    "We stayed for a brief four nights and loved it. Relaxing, peaceful, beautiful, incredible view, nearly constant breeze, clean, comfortable beds. Rent a golf cart and roam the island! Karl was a wonderful Captain and host. Sean was terrific getting us to and from ferry dock and generally being an excellent host. We thought about St. Thomas or St. John's but with Honeymoon Beach, Heidi's, and Dinghy's...we never left the island. Already plotting a longer return visit!"

  • Best Vacation Ever at Water Island!

    "Where to begin to describe the perfect vacation! The house offers the best views and best location on the Island! Imagine going to sleep each night to the peaceful sounds of the ocean, awaking to breathe-taking views and being able to be on the beach within minutes. Honeymoon Beach offers great food and great prices at Heidi’s, and great drinks and music at Dinghy’s. It is peaceful enough to relax and read a book, or enjoy the companionship of other travelers at Dinghy’s. Water sports are available and the snorkeling is wonderful. While it is only a ferry ride to visit other islands, who would want to leave! Jan was wonderful, having the completely prepared for our vacation, and helping with both arrival and departure. Everyone on Water Island was hospitable and welcoming. We are making our travel plans to go back. We cannot wait!"
