Guestbook comments from the owner
The villa is adorable and the a/c was wonderful but not needed at night, great during the day though. I loved how cozy this villa is, I also love being right on the water. I can see why you do love this villa so much.

In addition to the view I LOVED the wildlife, the salt pond is amazing. If you go out there at night with a flash light you can see hundreds of little shrimp and their eyes glow, it is the coolest thing I've ever seen. (yep, nature/animal geek on board) There were also all types of weird fish and crabs to be seen too. I never knew there was so much life in those salt ponds. Unbelievable... I loved it.

I also loved the iguanas and set up a little feeding time each day around 9 a.m. I have the coolest pictures and they really loved the oranges and bananas we put out for them. Again, the nature geek in me couldn't get enough of it and I enjoyed that as much as the view. Do me a favor and drop a banana or two for my little scaly friends next time your there. They were so neat to watch and really looked forward to their little meal.

We are John and Vicky and are veterinarians in Virginia. We honeymooned on St John at Caneel in 1993 and have now returned over 100 times. We love to sail, snorkel, and listen to the sea breeze and surf just outside our panoramic windows at Beach Walk. Our daughter and dog also love Beach Walk. Especially exploring all the coral along the shore, finding hermit crabs, and spotting iguanas in the trees.

John and Vicky Daly purchased this villa in 2005

One of St John's best locations due to being located adjacent to a magnificent Tropical Reef. Very convenient to groceries, shopping, restaurants, Cruz Bay, and the north shore beaches.

Kayaks and Snorkel gear free of charge. Beach Walk is a rare find being located of some of St John's most beautiful waters. Swim and snorkel and kayak without always having to drive somewhere. The sounds and sights are remarkable at our waterside villa.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here with our 3 children and had an amazing vacation. Chocolate Hole was a great place to stay and loved being on the water. The location was ideal to Cruz Bay and the stores as well. Loved the wild life as well. I would not hesitate to stay here again

GREAT WEEK IN ST. JOHN

  • 4 of 5
Beachwalk was in an ideal location! We were a pair of couples that we're looking to enjoy the various beaches of St. John. This property was right on a beautiful bay. We kayaked almost everyday. The kitchen was well equipped as we cooked in 5 of the 7 nights. Beds were comfortable and the house view was a postcard. The snorkeling in Chocolate Bay was very good but beware of the numerous sea urchins along the coast. It made for some difficult entries/exits form the bay.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We love St. John … vacationed in 2001, married at Hawksnest Bay in 2005 and finally able to come back in 2013. We've stayed in a villa each visit and most recently stayed at Beach Walk. We are a family of 4 with younger (ages 4 and 6) children. The villa was perfect. It was very well kept, nicely furnished, and comfortable. With young kids having a washer and dryer was priceless! The snorkeling right off our doorstep was great! Our kids loved the kayaks and the hot tub. The view was spectacular. The Chocolate Hole location was great ... not only because its right on the water and in a quiet area, but it is easy to get into Cruz Bay for dinner and shopping.

BEST BIRTHDAY I'VE EVER HAD

Best birthday I've ever had
  • 5 of 5
Everything about the house was correct. It was a beautiful site and was well taken care of. Steve and Lisa Smith greeted us and were very friendly and helpful with getting us to the house and showing us around and how to work things. We loved being able to walk right out the door and go snorkeling. The snorkeling there is awesome! Saw lots of fish, even schools of blue tang. The house was well equipped with everything we could need to cook in and it had a comfy feel to it. I really felt at home there. Everything was clean. We really didn't spend a lot of time in the house as we were hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving and shopping, but just knowing that we had a nice place to come back to made it worthwhile. The owners John and Vickie were great and I would definitely rent this house again.

FELT LIKE HOME IN CHOCOLATE HOLE

  • 5 of 5
Beachwalk was fantastic. We felt at home the moment we arrived and both the owners and on-island villa representatives were professional and a pleasure to work with. After a long day at the north shore beaches, we relaxed in the hot tub, snorkled outside the house (which has incredible reef life) and enjoyed the view of the sun setting over Chocolate Hole from the patio right on the water. The house is well equipped and included everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Our kids especially enjoyed the iguanas surrounding the property. Note that the entry into the water behind the house is technically challenging due to rocks and urchins, but with care, you'll can get in fine and enjoy some of the best snorkeling on the island, all to yourself. Convenient to Cruz Bay including the grocery stores, Dolphin and Starfish Markets. We'll be back.
