The hospitality, location, beauty, and serenity have no words to sincerely describe appropriately. It is a must experience to truly understand. The campground is equipped with all needs. It is the best "camping" experience ever. The Honeymoon Beach is only a 5 minute walk, where snorkeling, sea turtle encounters, various sea life are an extra plus. It is only a...

We enjoyed our stay very much and really loved the view from our cabin/tent. It almost felt like we were sleeping on the beach! Also, the shared facilities were great. We cooked our own supper every night.

We are so happy we stayed at the Water Islands Campground for our honeymoon. The cottages were very clean and cute, we could hear the waves all night.

Paul, Deb, and Shaun made our first Carribean Island vacation one of, if not the best, vacation we have been on. If you need anything, they will make every attempt to help you out. The trade winds keep you cool and the lush vegetation make the campground an idealistic location for anyone looking for seclusion and relaxation. The screened huts...

I went to this campground a couple of weeks ago with my Boyfriend. To say the least it was simply beautiful. It's not too much camping that you feel like youre alone in the woods, and not too facilitated that you feel constricted. It's the best of both worlds. We stayed in Cabin Six which in my opinion was the...

The owners, Paul and Deb, kept in contact with us from the time of reservation until we disembarked from our ferry ride to Phillip's Landing on Water Island. Sean, the grounds-keeper, is a great addition to the campground, knowledgeable, helpful and will hang out with the campers in the shared pavilion after-hours (assuming he's not his normally busy self).

Needing some alone time brought me to Water Island. As a woman traveling alone, I chose the Suite, which was the right choice for me. I preferred having my own bathroom, especially at night. I always felt safe on the Island, the beaches and on the campgrounds. After meeting people at Heidi's and other campers, I felt like family. I...

The campground is well-maintained and clean. The staff and other campers are friendly, but also respect each other's privacy. It never once got rowdy. The cottages are perfect. We found the bed comfortable. Also they do ask you to do some cleaning upon departure, but it took us about 15 minutes and is really not a big deal. The views...

I find it hard to believe that you can complain to the world about things that were not acceptable to you during your stay here at the Virgin islands Campground but not mention the problems you were having to the management. Groceries being thrown out and ants in the cottage and bed. These things can be dealt with immediately or...
