House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)
My husband and I live in North Carolina. We visit Water Island whenever we can. When we are not there we share it with friends, family and guests.
Beth purchased this House in 2005
Why Beth chose Estate Eastern Water Island
We purchased Slow Mocean in 2005. We visited many other islands on vacation over the years. We love the USVI because the islands are mountainous. It is amazing to see the islands rise out of the blue sea. Beaches are interesting--not just flat and sandy. The highest elevation of Water Island is about 300ft. The makes for great views, and great breezes. We liked Water Island because it is not crowded, is safe, has no traffic and has beautiful beaches.
What makes this House unique
Slow Mocean is well located on Water Island. It has a private location, large lot and great view. The layout is very flexible for family or groups. The deck is private for sunning, reading and dining. We furnished the house to suit us--so I think it will suit most visitors. It is not just a rental property it is our second home.

It was a very nice family get away.
Property owner communicated well.
All reports were that these guests (4 adults & 2 children) enjoyed their stay. Not any detail here to respond to. It is lovely on Water Island. Slow Mocean is in good shape for guests. Come visit!
Great views. Laid back and relaxing. Easy access to St Thomas. Perfect weather. Fun bars and good food on island.
Great week on Water Island!
Our family of five had a wonderful stay at Slow Mocean. The house has the most amazing view of St Thomas and the sunsets never disappoint! We even had a quick rain shower one day and were treated to the most beautiful rainbow. The house is bright and airy and offers lots of space to relax and unwind. We spent most mornings reading on the deck and the days exploring, snorkeling, etc. We brought a lot of food with us which allowed us to do a little less shopping in St Thomas. The kitchen had everything we needed.
Randy, the property manager, was very helpful and quick to respond if we had a question. He even met us at the ferry with his truck to help us get all of our luggage up to the house. The property golf cart was great and we rented a second one since we had five people.
Beth was very helpful with information and was quick to answer any questions. Thank you for letting us enjoy your amazing house in paradise! We'll be back for sure.
Wonderful, relaxing family reunion!
Our adult family members spent a marvelous week reuniting at Slow Mocean. A spacious, private, clean, and well-appointed home, the view of Charlotte Amalie Harbor from the large deck is magnificent. We'd been to Water Island before, and were happy to see the community still enjoying the beach area as before the recent devastating Caribbean hurricanes. Snorkeling was delightful, sea turtles were amazing. Perfect name for the home. Wonderful, relaxing retreat! Property manager Randy was on-island and kindly settled us in and generously offered any assistance needed.
The home is spacious, comfortable, and the views from this tremendous patio are amazing!!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!! The views are beyond amazing and the house is very spacious The patio is unbelievable and it is surreal to look out and see the lights over all of St Thomas at night. We cannot wait to return!!
Best view on Water Island
This was our 4th trip to Water Island. Can’t say enough about Slow Mocean. House was very clean and more than enough room for our family. The deck was the best part of the house with a perfect view of St Thomas and Crown Bay. There was always a breeze going through the house keeping it nice and cool especially at night. The golf cart made it very convent to get around the island and it was only a 5 minute drive down to Honey Moon beach. We are looking forward to our next trip to WI.
I am so glad you enjoyed your visit. We update the house on an ongoing basis to keep it fresh and clean. The view handles itself!! Pls come back again.
There are scheduled 'events' on Water Island. Heidi cooks dinner on Honeymoon Beach on Saturday nights during high season. It is lovely. Monday nights a 'drive in' movie is shown on a screen tied between two palms on Honeymoon Beach. It is wonderful. Just pull up in your golf car. Heidi also cooks lunch on Honeymoon Beach most days. Joe's bar is in the far corner of Honeymoon Beach where you can order frozen drinks and others cool drinks. Activities may vary by season.
