Blue Vista Too is a comfortable Water Island apartment, that is on the ground floor of our island home, Blue Vista. 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. Blue Vista Too is positioned on a hillside in a private wooded acre lot with its own private drive and a nice view overlooking Limestone Bay. It has recently been refurbished. It has a nicely furnished kitchen with newly updated appliances. It has 1 bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed, and 1 full bath. It also has a large screen porch, and small den. The owners have sole access to the villa above, which is separate from Blue Vista Too and is never rented.
Blue Vista Too is on the Caribbean side of Water Island which has open exposure to the gentle trade wind breezes from the East. A large 12x24 screen porch with attached balcony deck provides a terrific staging area to enjoy the view, watch the cruise ships arrive & depart, check out the sail boats and the mega yachts, or simply relax and read a book.
If you're not relaxing on the porch, you have probably driven the provided golf cart to Honeymoon Beach, one of the top beaches in the Virgin Islands! Bring your bathing suits (we'll provide the beach chairs, towels, & snorkeling gear). 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 Too is so close to Limestone Beach that you will hear the waves lapping on the shore as you go to sleep in your comfy bed.
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 here. We will also give you a tour of Blue Vista Too 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!
