Many thanks for taking your time to write a lovely review. Delighted you enjoyed your time at Water Island Hideaway and look forward to your return. Have a great year..........Jan :-)
We just got back from a week at Oceanport. The setting of the house is more dramatic than the pictures show. 140 feet above the sea, you listen to the waves breaking and the view goes on forever. Wh… More
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review of Oceanport, we could not agree more. While Oceanport does not have A/C, it was built to not have it, and with those ocean breezes coming off the bluff you don't need it. We also agree that it is such a wonderful price for what you are getting, plus you can walk down to Hart Bay! Please do excuse our delay in responding to your review, we are just now learning we can respond to reviews - which we love!!! We hope to have down again to Oceanport or one of our other lovely villas. Until then please follow us on FB or Insta to keep this stunning island in your thoughts! Thanks and have an awesome day!!!
We had a great time. Having decided to have a family Christmas in a warm resort, this rental met all our expectations. The view of the sea, the islands beyond St Thomas and the sunrise is stunning. T… More

thank you ladies for being such thoughtful guest. When I realized it was spring break time I was a bit apprehensive about renting for that time period. You ladies have proven what we knew, that you should always ignore stereo types. You kept the suite in immaculate condition ,and were ideal guest. Thanks again for a taste of that homemade lasagna . You could always return and start your own restaurant
