About Water Island Real Estate
Water Island is a beautiful residential island, as the smallest of the four U.S. Virgin Islands at just over 490 acres. Water Island is also the youngest US Virgin Island, having been transferred to the territory less than 20 years ago. It enjoys a population of less than 200 people, many of whom choose to travel by golf cart around their small island instead of by car. For necessities, simply hop on the 9 minute ferry over to St. Thomas.
When it comes to Water Island Real Estate, options range from from high end houses to small cottages. Private homes populate the island’s hillsides in the wonderfully picturesque areas known called Flamingo Point, Sprat Bay and Carolina Point. Rents start around $1500 per week and up depending on the house and amenities.
