Chocolate Hole Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Happy 2014 from La Barracuda Villa. LOTS OF NEW PHOTOS. The sounds of Birds and Waves crashing is all you hear at one of the most popular Villas on St John. La Barracuda Villa will treat you to an unforgettable experience. Built on a fully landscaped hillside filled with local fauna and more than enough lizards, iguanas and fruit trees. Decks and walkways are used to cover the property like a Robinson Crusoe adventure, with beautiful views of St. Thomas, St. Croix, Hart Bay and Chocolate Hole, La Barracuda has been a favorite spot for many Virgin Island visitors. A 3 bedroom main house split into separate private pods with fully equipped kitchens, towels, linens, and other household supplies to give you that home away from home feeling. La Barracuda will make your stay in St John a lasting memory.

Another unique thing about the layout of La Barracuda is that as a group or couples, you can get away to your own area anytime. Each bedroom is separate from the family room, with separate decks and bathrooms. The lower unit has its own fridge, so no need to climb the stairs, just throw a few drinks in your fridge and hit the lower deck hot tub. We also have a larger and deeper pool than most places with a great deck, table and umbrella lounges and chairs, a great place to relax after your day at the beach, shopping, hiking, diving, there's just so much to do here!!

Please check out the link to our own website or our facebook page for many more photos. Thanks!

Why Franklin chose Chocolate Hole

We simply LOVE St john. If you have spent any time at all in the Caribbean, you should be well aware of just how beautiful St John Is. We have one of the best views on the island, period. The property was developed for this reason alone, along with the flora and fauna that surrounds the hilltop property. Close enough to town to run and grab more Rum, but all you hear is ocean waves at our property. PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR BEFORE INQUIRING...Thank You.

What makes this villa unique

Location location location. Privacy and the feeling of being at home. Unbelievably relaxing surroundings. Your outside as much as inside on this property. the view itself is worth a million. It is an island house not a cement block, or italian villa. Simply put, the House and the property itself is just 'Cool' We have a brand new cistern pump! it rocks.

PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR BEFORE INQUIRING and our other links and sites for more photos of the entire property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We could not have pulled off the Week and Wedding of a lifetime without having the space and ability to separate from one another when needed during a hectic week. Your house was a perfect fit. Thank you.

Excellent vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for several days with 2 other couples. This was the perfect set up for us as each bedroom was on a separate level with a private bath. There is also the main gathering space where the kitchen, living room, dining room and outdoor patio was located, so if several people wanted to stay up late, or get up earlier no one would be disturbed. The property was very quiet and peaceful. I felt like I was staying at a friend's house the entire time, everything was right there.

And the sunset view of seeing St. Thomas was incredible!

The pool was nice, but we really appreciated the hot tub in the evenings when it got a little chillier.

The owner Franklin was extremely helpful with any questions we had.

Would definitely recommend!

Best Island House On The PLanet!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time staying at La Barracuda. Could not recommend this place more highly. The house and bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was perfect, had everything we needed. The deck out over the water provides the most amazing views of the island and a perch to watch the sunset while drinking a cocktail or eating dinner. And the pool was an oasis of refreshment. The house is tucked away and private and still extremely close to any amenities you might need and beautiful beaches. The care taker, Franklin ,was extremely friendly and helpful (THanks!). Everything was clean and comfortable. For the price this is an incredible value. We will be returning soon..

A perfect place for a St. John adventure

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in the guest house at La Barracuda from March 11-18 (2011). It was our first time on St. John, and La Barracuda was a perfect base of operations for our adventures. Tucked away in the “Chocolate Hole” area just below Cruz Bay, La Barracuda’s location high on a hill overlooking Hart Bay and Chocolate Hole provides wonderful views. You can hear the lulling surf of Hart Bay below, and from the guest house deck you can watch the lights come on over on St. Thomas. In fact, one of the things the description of the property undersells significantly is the view from the guest house. The house is just five minutes from the action in Cruz Bay, but it’s far enough away to offer seclusion.

Our primary purpose for going to St. John was to spend as much time as possible in the water snorkeling. Franklin was very helpful, offering us useful guide books and insider tips and descriptions of the beaches around the island. Likewise, the beach chairs there for guests to use came in handy. Our favorite snorkeling sites now include Waterlemon Cay, the longish swim from the northern-most part of Francis Bay out to the tip of Mary Point (lots of turtles), Little Lameshur Bay, Salt Pond Bay (lots of rays), and Hansen Bay (look for the octopi that camouflage themselves in the coral and rocks). Then again, if you’re lucky you can come across a good-sized nurse shark hanging out in the shallows of Chocolate Hole. So just about any beach on the island could be great. Nothing on the island is that far away, so La Barracuda provides great access to any of your plans.

And after a long day of snorkeling, what could be better than to come back to the guest house and soak in the hot tub on the deck and listen to the waves roll in below? The grill on the deck also served us well for casual meals. The house was clean and pretty well stocked (and Franklin was great about providing any utensils that we needed that weren’t in the guest house). The kitchen worked well for our on-the-go needs.

All in all, the description and photos give you a good representation of the property (though Franklin was in the middle of repainting the exterior when we were there, so it probably looks even better now). A few more photos of the view would more adequately show perspective guests what a find they’ve come across.

I would (and have) recommend La Barracuda to family and friends who are interested in a St. John getaway—and who doesn’t need a St. John getaway?

Views for Days!

  • 5 of 5
Ive stayed here multiple times and it continues to be on of my favorite villas on the island.
It offers just the right amount of privacy with its tiered bedrooms with private decks no mater what size group you stay with. Its has plenty of amenities and is a short drive from town and beaches.
The owner was more than accommodating and available for any questions and concerns we had.
I highly recommend La Barracuda to any and all who seek out a great st. john experience!

Thanks Franklin!

House pictures are very misleading

  • 2 of 5
My family and I traveled to the beautiful island of St.John to only be disappointed with the house we stayed in called La Barracuda. The house is not taken care of one bit. When we arrived we had no water for 48 hours. 3 of the Air conditioners didn't work properly. The stove worked half of the time and the dishwasher didn't work at all. There was mold all over the house. The guest house kitchen was awful, cabinets where falling apart. 1 out of the 2 hot tubs worked. Don't lean on any of the wood hand rails on any of the decks, they are very very dangerous and if you fell you would be seriously hurt. The owner Frank wasn't very helpful,although we did manage to get some maintenance people over to the house to give us water, and get the water pump patch up so we could take showers. We learned that this house is for sale so this is why the maintenance isn't kept up. The one positive thing about this property is the view it is breathtaking. Please don't let this post detour you from coming to Beautiful St.John because the island is a little piece of Heaven. Our first visit was awesome, we stayed at Garden by The Sea and it was beautiful. We just had too big of a party for them to accommodate us, thats why we got this house on our second visit. I will be returning to St.John in the future but I will do my homework next time. I gave this house a fair rating only because of the view of the Beautiful island.

Owner's Response: My response to this is simple. For the first time in 10+ years we did not return a deposit due to damages occurred at the property(photos of everything), and then i received this review. The Family arrived at 6 pm to the house on the 26th (Sun). There was a cistern pump problem that occurred after they arrived. A manager was on site within 30 minutes. It was thought water was needed, water was ordered immediately. Turns out it was a pump problem which was confirmed the next afternoon (mon). It was fixed, the plumber returned later to do a check and see if anything else was needed. One AC went down, we had new portable installed the next day. Our house is in beautiful shape, and all our appliances and hot tubs work great. The rest of this review is nonsense,We did not hear a word from them after this. or did our on island manager, or any other guests in the past year? Ask anything you would like about the house, its exactly like the pics. And visit our other links for 40+ more.

I did not want to leave! La Barracuda is a vacation in itself. The Villa is connected and surrounded by decks & pathways that are bordered with the most lush and interesting flowering trees and plants. Iguanas, frogs and birds share the enjoyment of the grounds and add to the whimsical feeling of the property. The Villa rests up on a hillside so you have clear, amazing views all the way to St. Thomas. You can hear the waves crashing from Hart Bay below & when it rains on the metal roof at night - perfect! When I wasn't snorkeling and having the time of my life in the ocean, I was swimming in La Barracuda's pool, walking around the grounds just admiring the countless varieties of plantlife, or just sitting on the numerous decks mesmerized by the beauty of St. John. Don't forget your camera!
