Blue Vista is a comfortable Water Island home, that has recently been equipped with solar power. It is centrally located on the island, and is within walking distance (less than 5 minutes) to Honeymoon Beach, the ferry dock, and Limestone Beach. It sits on a hillside in a private wooded acre lot, with stunning views overlooking Limestone Bay. It has recently been refurbished, and a sleeping porch as well as a UV whole house water filter system has been added. Blue Vista's water is 100% drinkable; leave that bottled water behind! It has a large generously furnished open kitchen (12X17) with a central island that includes a gas cooktop. It has 2 large bedrooms, and 2 full baths. It also has a sleeping porch, den, and extra large dining/ family room. The owners have sole access to a small caretaker's quarters on the property, which is separate from Blue Vista and is never rented.
Blue Vista is on the Caribbean side of Water Island which has open exposure to the gentle trade wind breezes from the East. The house faces East to maximize that delightful ventilation. A large full length deck provides a terrific staging area to enjoy the dramatic views, watch the cruise ships arrive & depart, check out the sail boats and the mega yachts, or simply relax and read a book. Because the deck is on the east side of the house, it becomes a wonderful shaded retreat during the heat of the afternoon!
If you're not relaxing on the deck, you have probably driven the provided golf cart to Honeymoon Beach, one of the top beaches in the Virgin Islands! Bring your bathing suits & snorkeling gear (we'll provide the beach chairs & towels). Check out Heidi's gourmet beach grill for lunch or snacks, or bring along a picnic. Dinghy's Beach Bar provides adult beverages, meals, & musical entertainment on weekends.
You might also enjoy walking down to Limestone Beach to do some serious shelling. The access trail is adjacent to our property line. In fact Blue Vista is so close to Limestone Beach that you will hear the waves lapping on the shore as you go to sleep in our comfy beds.
Water Island is the smallest of the US Virgin Islands, and is located adjacent to the main harbor of St Thomas. When you arrive at the airport, you'll take a 5 minute taxi ride to Crown Bay Marina to take the Water Island Ferry (5-10 minutes). We will meet you when you arrive at the ferry dock to escort you to your stay at Blue Vista. We will also give you a tour of Blue Vista and provide you with any info you may need (such as where to stock-up on your favorite food & beverages). Other Water Island activites you'll want to enjoy are: Monday night movie on the beach, Wednesday night bingo, Saturday night candle light dinner on the beach at Heidi's, and Sunday live music at Dinghy's. There are also dinners available at Dinghy's Beach Bar every night.
It's also fun to take advantage of the regular ferry schedule to go shopping & sightseeing on St Thomas. Or for the more adventurous, charter a sailboat for the day, go on a fishing charter, or visit St John or the other Virgin Islands!
