Windswept 1 is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom oceanfront condominium located on quiet, peaceful Water Island, USVI. Described in a Boston Globe feature article (December 6, 2009) as 'A Homeland Treasure', Water Island is the smallest and most recent addition to the U.S. Virgin Islands. This 491.5 acre island has a population of less than 500 people, and is the best choice for those who are truly looking to relax and get away from modern civilization.
Windswept 1 is a semi attached condominium in one of the most beautiful tropical settings of the Caribbean with ocean views from every window. It is one of five cliffside condominiums built on 1.3 acres of land. Each condo is individually decorated by the owner. Windswept 1 has state of the art kitchen appliances including a French door stainless refrigerator and convection stove. The floor tiles are hand made from Mexico. You will even notice the paw prints in the tiles that occurred as they were drying in the Mexican sun.
Enjoy your morning coffee relaxing on the front patio watching the sun come up over the tip of St. Thomas as the cruise ships enter the harbor. In the afternoon, enjoy drinks at the swim up bar in the shared 12x30 pool, overlooking Flamingo Bay.
Honeymoon Beach is a short five minute drive in the golf cart, provided for your use, during your stay. You can soak up the sun, enjoy the warm, turqoise waters of the Caribbean and have lunch at Heidi's Honeymoon Grill or Dinghy's. Heidi also offers a gourmet dinner on Saturday evenings on the beach. Enjoy excellent food and drink with a gorgeous sunset over the ocean.
Monday night movies on Honeymoon beach is a favorite. The movie is free and you can purchase hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks. Where else in the Caribbean can you pull up to a large screen movie on the beach in your golf cart?
When you tire of all this, St. Thomas is a short, ten minute ferry ride away. The ferry makes frequent trips daily. Enjoy shopping, first class restaurants, golf and many other activities. It is also easy access to St. John and the BVIs. If you are interested in snorkeling or deep sea fishing, private charters from Water Island can be arranged.
At the end of your day, retire to your king size master bed and watch the lights of St. Thomas twinkle while listening to the waves crashing against the rocks and the trade winds blowing.
Windswept is truly the seaside retreat of your dreams. We welcome you to be our guest for your next tropical vacation! You deserve it!
Inquire if additional space needed. VRBO#265978 is a very similar attached unit.

Water Island is a vacation destination for travelers who want to get away from it all but still have most of the amenities of home. Windswept is a quiet complex of five condominiums with a shared pool. Guests of Windswept enjoy tropical weather, a great beach and a pool to cool off. Although there are no restaurants or stores, meals and drinks at Heidi's and Dinghy's on the beach are available every day. This is a location meant for relaxation and rejuvenating.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: My wife and I have vacationed for years in the Caribbean and always hoped one day to have a place of our own on one of the islands. We learned of a piece of property on Water Island for sale that had once housed a military barracks. We visited the island and the site for the first time and loved it. The island was quiet and the people were very welcoming. The oceanfront views from the barracks site were spectacular. We jumped at the opportunity to build, along with four other couples from Maine. We have rented our condo on a smaller scale since 2010. For the 2013-2014 season, we are making our condo more available for rental guests. We would love the opportunity to share it with you. Karen Dumond, who along with her husband owns Windswept 2, manages the rentals for both Windswept 1 & 2.
Why the Owner Chose St. Thomas, USVI:
Windswept sits on one of the most gorgeous pieces of property that we have seen in our travels through the Caribbean. Even though we didn't know anything about building in the Caribbean, we had to go for it! The purchase and building was a three year process with many stresses. Building on an island several hundred miles away had many challenges. As we think back, we laugh at these challenges now as we are sharing Windswept with family and friends.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Water Island is where we go to get away from it all. The sun, the pool, the beach and the cool breezes are all very relaxing. We have all the amenities that we have at home but none of hassles. The island is very quiet but not remote. St. Thomas is a quick, 10 minute fery ride away if you want to go to a nice restaurant or do a little shopping. The best of both worlds.
