Slow Mocean is ready for you!. The island and the view are original, unspoiled, and amazing. There are no condos, hotels or crowds on Water Island. Slow Mocean sits at the highest crest of Water island so there is plenty of breeze. The house faces St. Thomas providing a sparkling night-time view while still having a view to open water to the left of the deck. The house is a spacious 1600 square feet. The deck is very large at 750 square feet. The setting is very private and quiet. When on the deck, you’ll have the view and the breeze to yourself. The deck cannot be viewed from the road or by neighbors. A king bed bed is in the master bedroom. There is a queen bed in the second bedroom as well as a futon that converts to a double bed in a separate living space. There are two nice sized full bathrooms and an outside shower. You can dine indoors or outdoors.

Water Island is the perfect place to experience the Caribbean away from the crowds. However, St. Thomas is only a five minute ferry ride away so you can shop or visit restaurants if you want. The ferry docks at Crown Bay Marina on St. Thomas, which has a dive shop, internet office, restaurant, and grocery store. We provide a fully furnished house and a golf cart for transportation. We will provide you information you need about the island so you can fully enjoy your stay in paradise.

Beautiful beaches are just a short fun golf cart ride away. Snorkling on Honeymoon beach is good. Just walk right in! There are other beaches that are good exploring, shell hunting beaches. We will provide a map of the best places to swim, snorkle, shell hunt or be alone.

The house is within 100 yards of Palm Cottage, our other house. If you have a large group or two families who want to stay close by each other these properties would be ideal.
