Additional Location Information
Water Island is located south of St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. Formerly under Danish rule, driving is still on the left.
Chateau Monroe is a private residence with detached two story villa. The villa has it's own driveway and parking. A golfcart or jeep is included. The views of the Caribbean Sea are from 170' elevation and are unobstructed natural forest down to the bay where yachts are moored. This is also an entry and exit channel for the largest cruise ships in the world.
For those travellers that want to snorkel or scuba, the reefs surrounding Water Island offer an abundance of coral and sea life. Kayaks and paddle boards can be rented at the beach. Beach chairs, towels, cooler, a hammock, noodles and more are included with the villa. For comfort and sanitary reasons, we suggest you bring your own snorkle gear. Fishing, dive, sailing or sightseeing charters are available. For the shoppers, St Thomas is world renowned for offering locally made and luxury items at duty free prices. St John is only a day trip away with beaches, excursions and National Park trails and ruins to explore.
