Property description

The cozy studio at Villa Acquabella is ideal for a couple or couple with 1 or 2 children that are looking to experience the beauty of Water Island on a budget. The spacious studio comprises approximately 540 Square Feet. There is a separate entrance to the unit from the lower driveway of the property, so there is privacy for all units. A golf cart is provided for transportation on Water Island.

Water Island is a treasure yet to be discovered, complete with a gorgeous half moon shaped beach and bay known as Honeymoon Beach. The property is a two minute walk to Honeymoon beach or you may ride in the golf car provided. The beach hosts Dinghy's Beach Bar & Grill is open daily serving lunch and dinner from 11 am to 8 pm; Bar is open from 10:30 until 11 pm or later. Dinghy's offers a full kitchen, ATM machine, covered tiki dining, tables with umbrellas, beach chairs with umbrellas, floating bar, rum barrel tables with stools, flat screen TV's , corn hole and ladder game, and an overall new vibe. The kitchen employs a seasoned staff of chefs with many years of combined local and international experience. The menu offers beach side favorites: big burgers, sandwiches, salads, wraps, tacos, fried snacks, fish, BBQ, and pizza ( BBQ and Pizzas on select nights). Delicious and creative daily specials are based on product availability and freshness! The Bar has the islands best bartenders serving creative frozen drink delights, cocktails, a variety of cold beers and wines, juices, and sodas. Try a chilled bottle of crisp dry-yet-fruity rose on the beach or rent snorkel gear, kayaks and Stand up Paddle Boards. Quickly becoming the alternative to Jost Van Dyke trips, Dinghy's Beach Bar is being discovered by many VI residents who want to get away from it all without the hassles and expense of going to the BVI. No passport or fees required to come to Water Island!! Karaoke on Thursday, Full Moon Parties,Live Music on weekends, special event catering, wedding receptions, all available at Dinghy's! You may also choose to enjoy some biking and hiking to the old fort, or around the 491.5 acre (199 Hectare) island. Easily accessible via ferry service from Crown Bay Marina, or private skipper and boat available for special trips to St Thomas or other islands. (ask owners about their 40 foot Cruisers and/or 27 foot whaler.) World class shopping is nearby on Main Street, the Waterfront, Havensight Shops, and Yacht Haven Grande Marina.

The studio has an open floor plan with efficient kitchen, closet, queen bed, trundle bed, bar top table and stools, A/C, and separate bathroom and shower. The original cistern's local stone wall adds charm and helps keep the studio cool, so A/C is generally not a necessity. A small entry deck serves as the BBQ and outdoor dining spot.

Inquire with the owner about additional space available on the Villa Acquabella Estate. See other vrbo listings:165838, 272245, 282063.
