Water Conservation & The USVI

Water Conservation in the US Virgin Islands (USVI) is Very Important
Beach Music - St John Villa Rentals

Beach Music Villa's only source of water is rainfall which is caught via the roof and stored in a cistern beneath the house. This is true for most island homes. We do check our cistern before your arrival to insure you'll have enough water, but if it runs out, we then have to have water trucked to the villa in a tanker rig. As everything is on "island time" - arranging a delivery to fill your cistern may take a day or two. So help us conserve by never letting the water run while washing up or brushing teeth, flush only when necessary, and do your best to take short showers. PLEASE report all plumbing issues including running toilets and dripping faucets to us immediately!

Toilets & Plumbing:We have a eco-friendly, self-contained septic system. To conserve water we utilize water-saver toilets. For these reasons the septic system is sensitive and is too delicate to handle anything out of the ordinary. For that reason we ask that you do not flush any foreign objects or personal hygiene products down the toilets!

Is the water safe to drink?The cistern water is filtered but we recommend guests buy bottled water at the grocery store for drinking. The refrigerator does have an additional filtration system for the ice maker.

Laundry:Our villa has a washer and dryer for your use. When doing the laundry, please remember - help conserve water by only running a complete load of wash!

Dishwasher:Please only run full loads of dishes to conserve water and electricity. Detergent is provided.
