About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8; 7-8 adults requires owner permission)

Casa Blanca is your secret paradise, with tropical plants and fruit trees in the garden. Casa Blanca is a four-bedroom, three-bathroom villa, consisting of two separate sections, perfect for solitude or entertaining. Enjoy the hustle, bustle, shopping and restaurants of St. Thomas and then return to your private island via a short ferry ride. Water Island has 500 acres with around 100 houses on it. Boasting a secluded beach and all the glorious weather, water, hills, sun, sand, and sunsets that make the Virgin Islands everyone's favorite destination, Water Island is the perfect spot. You may never leave our fabulous, partially-covered, 50' totally private deck with a dining table and plenty of lounge and regular chairs as you watch the cruise ships and freighters pass in front every morning and evening — or you may prefer to dine or read Inside or on the screened porch. Or you may want to go to Honeymoon Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Whether you snorkel or fish, sun or read, or just sit in the living room or on the deck or porch and admire the view, it never gets any better than Casa Blanca.

SPACE SHARE OPTION: If mutually agreeable, when we are here, a single person or a couple can stay in our completely separate and private guest suite, with a queen sized bed, adjoining bath, mini-kitchen/shared laundry room, and your own screened porch with dining table and rocking chairs for a special discounted rate of $150/night (3-night minimum).

About Julie Northup

Fred Northup is the founder of Athletes for a Better World, and his wife, Julie, is a retired lawyer. When they're not in paradise, they live in Asheville, NC.

Julie Northup purchased this villa in 2009

Why Julie Northup chose Estate Western Water Island

We bought this house because we love the beauty and privacy of Water Island and were fortunate to be friends with long-time residents who introduced us to it. Like all the Virgins, the water is perfect, and the pace of the island can't be matched. The road is essentially one lane so most people have golf carts (a four- and/or six-passenger cart comes with the house). Some like to go to St. Thomas to shop and eat; others never want to leave the view from the deck, or the pleasure of the beach. It's great for kids, since they can roam on their own, following turtles and iguanas, fishing or playing in the sand. Whenever we're there, we never want to leave.

What makes this villa unique

Our property manager will greet you, take you to the house, and tell you all you want to know about the house and the happenings on the island during your stay. Casa Blanca has three large bedrooms, three bathrooms, and one smaller bedroom, with a king, a queen and futon, twin beds with a futon, and a double bed. The 35' living area has a large living space facing the water and mountains of St. Thomas, an entertainment area with a 32'' screen smart TV (local stations or more entertainment options with Netflix and video library), a dining table seating four, and a separate dining table that can seat up to 10. The house comes with a six-seat golf cart, with four seats facing forward, and/or a four-seat golf cart. There are books, DVDs, videos and games to choose from, as well as some snorkel gear and fishing equipment at your disposal. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for you, but if you don't want to cook, Heidi's Honeymoon Grill usually cooks burgers, chicken sandwiches, etc. on the beach at noon and casual suppers some other nights, and Dinghy's provides beachside music, a bar, other entertainment such as trivia or karaoke, and a restaurant at the other end of the beach. You may be there for bingo nights on Wednesday nights at Heidi's or full moon nights up at the Fort (a short walk from the house) to watch the sun set and the moon rise. Or if you're really lucky you'll catch the Music Festival. There's nothing like the experience of Water Island!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I have to tell you - we both LOVED our stay in your beautiful home. We had a wonderful time. The layout was absolutely FANTASTIC. We LOVED all the books to read. Played on the keyboard. Lounged on the deck. Thank you SO very much for your hospitality and welcome.

This suite is perfect for a solo traveler or a couple. Everything you need is here but your swimsuit. The owners are fantastic people! I am looking forward to returning to my favorite island.

Little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 2 weeks at the house and found it extremely enjoyable. The house is completely furnished with everything you could need, including many of the kitchen consumables you would expect to have to provide yourself. Very private but the entire island is easily accessible on the provided golf cart. The owners are very responsive and the one time we needed maintenance help, the on-island property manager provided better service than I can get at home! If you're looking for a quiet relaxing get-away with a lot of beach time, this is the place. Grocery shopping and tourist activities are available on St Thomas via the ferry (although the schedule can be a bit restrictive at times). If visiting friends hadn't wanted to do the tourist thing on St Thomas, I would have been quite happy to stay on Water Island the whole time. I have no doubt we'll be back.

Wonderful vacation home with excellant view and comfortable furnishings!

  • 5 of 5

Casablanca is a roomy house with great views of the blue caribbean. There is plenty of room to relax inside the house and on the huge deck. The house is a very short golf cart drive to the beach. It was well furnished with everything we needed and was very clean. Casablanca is in a very private setting. The owners have a great manger that met us and showed us all around. We loved Water Island and hope to return soon. The island is a very special place away from crowds. Extra bonus was internet service! Highly recommended!!!!
