About Jan Robinson

Jan and Bob Robinson sailed the Caribbean on their sixty foot yacht for more than 20 years, exploring the islands and entertaining guests. Choosing a beautiful island with an affiliation to the United States as a second home seemed like a great idea. They bought a home on the east end of St. Thomas and then two acres of waterfront property, adjoining Honeymoon Beach on Water Island.

Bob, hails from Virginia, an attorney and loves to build (being also a civil engineer). He built the two-bedroom villa on the 500-acre island, which is now available for vacation rentals.

Jan, a native of New Zealand divides her time between their homes in North Carolina and the Virgin Islands. Jan's adventurous life and culinary expertise have been featured in numerous national and international publications; she is a much sought - after speaker, host, judge and coordinator of culinary competitions. Jan wrote the Ship to Shore Cookbook Series and has promoted her books throughout the islands and knows them very well, so not only will she look forward to meeting you at the Water Island ferry dock (with a cocktail), but will be delighted to share any information that you may need to make your vacation – perfect!!.

Jan Robinson purchased this villa in 1992

Why Jan Robinson chose Caribbean

We purchased this property in 1986 and built Water Island Hideway Villa 1992. It is one of the few properties on the water and with two beaches - a private beach and it also adjoins Honeymoon Beach. We wanted to share this beautiful location with others. The Villa has a spacious deck, comfortable chaise lounge chairs and amazing views and sunsets! So peaceful, but close to action!

What makes this villa unique

Quiet, secluded, with two beaches adjoining property. Kitchen, living area, and bedroom have breathtaking views; when you walk in the front door, the open kitchen is to the right, living area, deck and the Caribbean Sea. For your mode of transport ... rent a golf cart. But you are close enough to walk to beach, bar, deli, and ferry.

AWESOME HIDAWAY...отличный отдых дом.

  • 5 of 5

THE COTTAGE WAS PERFECT. CLEAN AND JUST THE RIGHT SIZE. THE QUIETNESS OF WATER ISLAND LEAD TO MANY NIGHTS OF SUNSET DINNERS ON THE GIANT DECK, THAT HANGS OVER A COVE FILLED WITH SAILBOATS. IT'S THE FIRST HOUSE UP THE HILL FROM HONEYMOON BEACH WITH TWO BEACH GRILL/BARS LOCATED RIGHT ON THE BEACH. THE VIEW IS THE BEST FEATURE OF THE HOUSE. GET A GOLF CART TO GET AROUND AND REMEMBER KEEP LEFT. WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR. VERY PLEASANT STAY FOR A WEEK OR TWO. ENJOY!!

Owner's Response: Thank you both for choosing Water Island Hideaway - a special place for special people. Yes, the view is awesome, not only from the spacious deck, 50 ft above the beautiful Caribbean Sea, but from all rooms. Delighted you both enjoyed your stay. I will look forward to welcoming you back next year. Happy days........ Jan :-)

WHAT A VIEW!! Great Getaway from a hard winter!

  • 5 of 5

Hideaway Cottage is located just uphill form Honeymoon Beach and offers one of the best views from Water Island.Mega yachts anchor right within a few hundred yards off your deck. One level living space is great and well laid out. Very comfortable king size bed in the master bedroom and each bedroom is air conditioned which is a huge plus. Water Island is a perfect place to get away from it all! Would definitely recommend this cottage and Jan went out of her way to help make our stay a memorable one. Even signed a copy of her cookbook for us! Close to the ferry, unreal view and close to beach made Hideaway a great choice for us. You will be glad to stayed at Hideaway!

Gotta Love Water Island

Our family loves Water Island! Jan's home on WI provided the perfect get-a-way! The views, cool breeze, easy access to Honeymoon beach, comfy beds....heck, even the ice maker was super! It's the little things that can make or break a vacation, and Jan's cottage and WI - are amazing! Her cottage provided everything we needed and more!

Best Vacation Ever at Water Island!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin to describe the perfect vacation! The house offers the best views and best location on the Island! Imagine going to sleep each night to the peaceful sounds of the ocean, awaking to breathe-taking views and being able to be on the beach within minutes. Honeymoon Beach offers great food and great prices at Heidi’s, and great drinks and music at Dinghy’s. It is peaceful enough to relax and read a book, or enjoy the companionship of other travelers at Dinghy’s. Water sports are available and the snorkeling is wonderful. While it is only a ferry ride to visit other islands, who would want to leave! Jan was wonderful, having the completely prepared for our vacation, and helping with both arrival and departure. Everyone on Water Island was hospitable and welcoming. We are making our travel plans to go back. We cannot wait!

Water Island Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our wedding trip to Water Island! It was the perfect place to getaway and enjoy this amazing island! The private beach access was great. We snorkeled everyday! Also, it was a nice walk to Honeymoon Beach where we could enjoy a drink and great lunches on the beach! The views were spectacular. And the people were so friendly! We made some lifelong friends and memories!
