Invest With only a handful of lots on the market at any time, stunning views, and the possibility of owning property in a secluded tropical paradise only minutes from downtown Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, makes it clear that Water Island is a great real estate investment!
Retire Whether it's the warm weather (temperatures remain in the 80s (28C) year around), the activties (golfing, sailing, diving, or just lying by the pool, to name a few), or the great retirement community (how about lunch with the R.O.M.E.O.s? - "Retired Old Men Eating Out") - Water Island is an ideal place to spend your Golden Years!
Live Only a few minutes by ferry away, St. Thomas is the economic hub of the Virgin Islands, and employment opportunities abound. Water Island boasts proximity to a major international airport, and with high-speed internet access on the island, you can telecommute anywhere. The Antilles School is an award-winning private school attended by children from around the Caribbean, and with a variety of leisure activities - fine dining, water sports, cultural events, and travel - you won't lack for things to do on the weekend!
Welcome to Water Islands Lots!
Real estate continues to be a great investment, and waterfront property tends to top the list. In addition, people are searching for new places to live and enjoy their lives, and the Caribbean offers some spectacular options. And when it's time to enjoy the Golden Years, people search for warm tropical breezes and refreshingly clear water.
Water Island is the fourth U.S. Virgin Island, after St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix. Acquired by the U.S. government in 1944, Water Island was not turned over to the Virgin Islands Government for development and permanent residence until December 12, 1996. Since then, Water Island has remained a secluded, semi-private island - your personal slice of paradise that is only a few minute ferry ride to downtown Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and the Cyril E. King International Airport (STT).
With far less than two hundred residents, private mooring and docking facilities, secluded tropical beaches, a general store/restaurant, and even an outdoor "movie theater" showing movies under the stars, Water Island is not just the "last Virgin," as it is known to residents and visitors, but an incredible opportunity that won't remain available forever. Whether for investment purposes, retirement, or simply to enjoy a unique lifestyle while living in the U.S. Virgin Islands, buying property on Water Island is the best decision you'll ever make.
