“Rustic elegance”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Surf song cottages are not for the faint at heart. Great place for the eco minded traveler. Rustic and elegant at the same time. It would be nice to have some of the brush trimmed so the sea breezes would penetrate deeper and the views would be right there! Some screens could use some repair, but the location is great and it was comfortable for my group of 9. If you like the unusual and ecletic, you'll love surf song cottage. (except for the roosters at 5am!)

“Rustic Retreat”

We visited Water Island for our Honeymoon and we stayed in the Treehouse cottage. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by David, who picked us up at the ferry. He was generously accommodating and super helpful in getting us acquainted with the grounds. We were then delighted to meet his wonderful wife, Lynn, who was, not only knowledgable of the island (and St. Thomas), but was also a pure pleasure to spend time with! They both, truly, made our stay so very pleasurable!! Lynn always had fresh coffee ready in the morning and they both went above and beyond to be sure that we were comfortable throughout our stay!! : )

I absolutely loved my stay on Water Island! The property is beautiful and absolutely unique, and Robyn makes sure you have everything you need to feel at home and have a magnificent time. Lots of super sweet animals on the property that will come hang out with you as you bask in the sun enjoying the gorgeous view. Everything was super clean and Robyn is always working to make to make the place more beautiful. Easy walk down to the beach and ferry station too. Would stay again in a heartbeat!!

Needed some solace and peace in my life. Connected back with my soul and maker in this tranquil breathtaking setting and got my mind, soul, body and spirit reconnected where it is meant to be. Lovely people with hearts pure and the beauty of nature surrounding the simple life. Most pleasurable vacation I have ever had. Tree house cottage AWESOME. Artwork throughout the property and many souls that have come through. Will do it again for a longer extended stay. Loved every minute!
