Water Island, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands
Villa Terra Nova is a private 2-bedroom, 2-bath single family home perched on a hill crest on Water Island (in world-famous St. Thomas harbor). The outdoor deck wraps around three sides of the villa, providing spectacular views of the Carribean Sea. The higher elevation of this villa means that exhilarating trade wind breezes enhance your experience. Your own golf cart is included as part of the villa rental, to get you around the 2.5-mile island for exploring and beachgoing. Villa Terra Nova has been a highly successful family vacation rental villa for over 12 years. We have just begun our lsting on TripAdvisor but we have many happy clients. Water Island is the hidden gem of the Caribbean - perfect for a vacation rental! It's a quiet, friendly golf cart community with a fabulous, popular beach.

We had a wonderful week at VTN on Water Island. The house is charming and the view and sea-breeze are simply spectacular. The wraparound balcony provides both sun for those who want it, and cool shade for relaxing in the hammock. We spent most days out at either Limestone beach for a snorkel, or down at Honeymoon Beach, bopping between...

Just returned from our stay at Villa Terra Nova on Water Island, and it was nothing short of spectacular! The views from the terrace are amazing, the trade winds and ceiling fans keep the villa cool and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need for preparing meals. Everything has been thought of to make your stay enjoyable, golf...

My wife and two daughters (4+2) stayed here in Feb 2014. This was our second trip to water island. The first was closer to the beach, but even given that, if we went back, we'd definitely stay here again. My girls loved the space, along with the turtles and hermit crabs in the yard. My wife and I loved the...

About the neighborhood
Water Island is situated in St. Thomas harbor, giving you a bird's eye view of cruise ships and other vessels entering and leaving this bustling port. Make a drink and sit on the deck to watch the cruise ships leave in the evening and pass by on the way in the next morning. Water Island provides serene privacy yet is only a 12-minute public ferry ride to St. Thomas with all it offers: dining, shopping, sightseeing, historic tours and watersports. Some charter boats will actually pick you up at the Water Island dock to whisk you out for fishing, snorkeling and other exciting activities.
