Property description


This is NOT an apartment or house on the same property as another. It is a private residence on .75 acres of paradise and comes with golf cart transportation.

For less than the cost of one nice hotel room you and your family can stay in a house with a huge deck, large living room and explore a beautiful island via golf cart!

'Boat qualified' guests may rent our 19 foot Mako. But you do not need a boat to enjoy Water Island. The ferry is very accessible and reliable.

WEB SITE LINK IS BELOW JUST ABOVE PICTURES--THIS HAS MUCH INFO AND ADDITIONAL PICTURES--PLS CLICK ON TO SEE

The house sits on the crest of Water Island so there is plenty of breeze. The house faces St. Thomas providing a sparkling night-time view while still having a view to open water to the left of the deck. The house is a spacious 1600 square feet. The deck is a very large (and private) 750 square feet. The setting is very tropical. On the deck you will have the view and the breeze all to yourself.

Slow Mocean has 2 large bedrooms. The pink master bedroom (on the water side) has a new king size bed, sitting area, closet, dresser, private access to a bathroom, and private access to the deck.

The yellow second bedroom has a queen bed and an extra single mattress for extra sleeping space if needed. It works well for children or a second couple. It has two dressers and private access to the bathroom. It also has a private door to the outside. Just outside this door is an outside shower so you can rinse off before entering the house.

There is a 3rd 'sleeping area' (separate from the living room) with a double futon if needed.

Guests enter the house into the yellow living area. This area is large with plenty of sitting space. The TV is in this room. There are wonderful views from thru the sliding glass doors. The sliding doors lead to the deck.

The blue kitchen ajoins an inside dining area and another sitting area. The kitchen is fully outfitted with dishwasher, disposal, UV water filter, microwave, toaster oven--everything you need. The dining are opens to the deck. The sitting area has a futon couch. The futon converts to a double bed for extra sleeping space. There is a second full bath off the blue sitting area. The telephone is in this blue sitting area as is the wireless internet equipment.

The huge deck runs the entire length of the water side of the house. It has an outside dining area, sunning area, shade to sit in, and a place to hang wet clothing. The view is wonderful day and night.

There is a washer /dryer. There are also noodles and other water flotations available in the storage area.

Water Island is the perfect place to experience the Caribbean away from the crowds. However, St. Thomas is only a five minute ferry ride away so you can shop or visit restaurants if you want. The ferry docks at Crown Bay Marina on St. Thomas, which has a dive shop, internet office, restaurant, and grocery store. We provide a fully furnished house and a golf cart for transportation. We will provide you information you need about the island so you can fully enjoy your stay in paradise.

Beautiful beaches are just a short fun golf cart ride away. Much of Water Island is dedicated green space. There are beautiful natural island palm forests. Driving around the island allows you to see many great vistas, interesting animals and plants. Snorkling off Honeymoon beach is good. Just walk right in! Honeymoon Beach provides covered shady sitting areas with chairs, and privacy. There are other beaches on the island that are good exploring, shell hunting beaches. We will provide a map of the best places to swim, snorkle, shell hunt or be alone.

Honeymoon Beach is the large sandy public beach. It is a beautiful beach. Although never crowded there is usually something going on at Honeymoon Beach. Heidi cooks lunch during the week and dinner on Saturday nights. Often a small boat of cruise ship guests will appear for a couple of hours for a day excursion. Joe's Beach Bar makes frozen drinks and offers other refreshments on the beach.

My property manager will meet you at the WI ferry dock, take you to the house and be available for questions or issue that might arise during your stay.

Slow Mocean is within 100 yards of Palm Cottage. If you have a large group or two families who want to stay close by each other these properties would work well together. Go to 'other rental properties' below or go back to VRBO listing and look at Palm Cottage.

Please take a look at the picture link below for pictures of the house and island. Email with any questions.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

There are scheduled 'events' on Water Island. Heidi cooks dinner on Honeymoon Beach on Saturday nights during high season. It is lovely. Monday nights a 'drive in' movie is shown on a screen tied between two palms on Honeymoon Beach. It is wonderful. Just pull up in your golf car. Heidi also cooks lunch on Honeymoon Beach most days. Joe's bar is in the far corner of Honeymoon Beach where you can order frozen drinks and others cool drinks. Activities may vary by season.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband and I live in North Carolina. We visit Water Island whenever we can. When we are not there we share it with friends, family and guests.

Why the Owner Chose St. Thomas, USVI:
We purchased Slow Mocean in 2005. We visited many other islands on vacation over the years. We love the USVI because the islands are mountainous. It is amazing to see the islands rise out of the blue sea. Beaches are interesting--not just flat and sandy. The highest elevation of Water Island is about 300ft. The makes for great views, and great breezes. We liked Water Island because it is not crowded, is safe, has no traffic and has beautiful beaches.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Slow Mocean is well located on Water Island. It has a private location, large lot and great view. The layout is very flexible for family or groups. The deck is private for sunning, reading and dining. We furnished the house to suit us--so I think it will suit most visitors. It is not just a rental property it is our second home.
