About the property

Studio+ Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

The cozy studio at Villa Acquabella is ideal for a couple or couple with 1 or 2 children that are looking to experience the beauty of Water Island on a budget. The spacious studio comprises approximately 540 Square Feet. There is a separate entrance to the unit from the lower driveway of the property, so there is privacy for all units. A golf cart is provided for transportation on Water Island.

Honeymoon Beach is a short 2 minute drive or 5 minute walk away. On the beach there is Heidi's Honeymoon Grill serving lunch daily and dinner on Saturday nights. Joe's Beach Bar is open daily for cold libations. And of course, the beach is spectacular for swimming, snorkeling, and just 'limin'', Caribbean for relaxing!

The studio has an open floor plan with efficient kitchen, closet, queen bed, trundle bed, bar top table and stools, A/C, and separate bathroom and shower. The original cistern's local stone wall adds charm and helps keep the studio cool, so A/C is generally not a necessity. A small entry deck serves as the BBQ and outdoor dining spot.

Inquire with the owner about additional space available on the Villa Acquabella Estate. See other vrbo listings:165838, 272245, 282063.

This studio is perfect and Lisa is a wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

This studio has it's own entrance from the other parts of the estate and is perfect for 3 or 4 people. The golf cart provided is a great amenity even though the beach is only a few minutes walk from the house and the house, a minute or so walk to the ferry (so, even a quick ride to St. Thomas for shopping and supplies was super easy from this location.)

This studio is perfectly clean, modern and minimalistic which helps you feel like you are at complete rest in such a breathtaking piece of paradise. It is completely quiet and tranquil, the bed cozy and comfortable. We sleep so peacefully here. There are amazing views of the Caribbean and a patio was the percent place to have morning coffee while watching the cruise ships coming in to St Thomas.

The kitchen had what we needed to prepare and cook some of our own food.

The bathroom is spacious and modern with plenty of towels and washcloths for our showers. Soap was provided and if we needed anything, Lisa was easy to contact for anything, so accommodating and friendly; a most wonderful host!

Water Island itself is truly a gem within the Virgin Islands. It is a small community of residents, vacationers and tourists who share a beautiful, white sand beach with plenty of privacy and space to pull up your chairs and soak in the sun. Bring your floaters and snorkels (or rent them from Dinghy's) and then lounge or watch fish in the calm, cooling waters of Honeymoon Beach. Rent paddle boards, grab an island cocktail from the beach bar, order some yummy food and you have a vacation made in heaven, all within a few hundred square feet.

We love Water Island and cannot wait to get back!

Great value

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this nice studio apartment on two separate occasions: in 2014 and 2016. Both times we were impressed by the convenience, cost and value of the property. It is close to the ferry dock and to Honeymoon Beach. The unit's cost comes with access to a golf cart to get around the hilly island. The unit isn't flashy, but it will serve you well when you aren't at the beach. As one of the less expensive vacation rentals on the island, this studio is perfect for a couple who is planning to spend all day at the beach (which, trust us, is the right way to vacation on Water Island -- the beach is amazing!)

Best value on Water Island

  • 4 of 5

The studio apartment is a good option for a couple looking for an inexpensive place to stay on Water Island. The owner provides a golf cart for quick and easy access to beautiful Honeymoon Beach. The house is also right near the ferry dock, so you can walk there when making trips back to St. Thomas. The kitchenette includes the basics for making some meals at home, though you shouldn't miss out on lunch at Heidi's Honeymoon Grill (fish tacos!!) and drinks at sunset at Dinghy's Beach Bar, both on Honeymoon Beach. The studio is a little dark and the view is only of greenery, but that's no worry as you'll spend most of your time at Honeymoon Beach. Be sure to check out Monday movies on the beach, Tuesday trivia at Dinghy's and Wednesday night bingo on the beach. I also recommend driving your golf cart to Fort Segarra to take in a spectacular view!

Beautiful Island, beautiful home, beautiful people!

  • 5 of 5

Loved my family's stay at Lisa's house on Water Island in December. The views are phenomenal! Each story included an outdoor balcony looking out onto the water leading to St. Thomas. I loved the minimal, modern and clean look of the home. Lisa was a wonderful host and I was delighted to get to know her during our stay on Water Island.

paradise on water island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fabulous week on water island. The studio was clean, comfortable with all the necessary comforts. The beach is close( we drove in the golf cart provided and the ferry is with in walking distance. The Island is beautiful as are the people we met. My husband enjoyed fishing everyday and I enjoyed the beach . We loved it and can't wait to return next year.
