This property is the perfect 'location' for a private oceanfront getaway! Your retreat is located about twenty five feet from the crystal blue ocean that gently laps up to your private rock and sand beach.

The property has an abundance of beautiful tropical plants that surround you including your own 'paradise trail' to the sea. Listen to the tree frogs at night and watch the hummingbirds, bananaquits, and iguanas during the day. One of my favorite things is to lie in bed and hear the relaxing sound of the surf gently lapping the shoreline. You are a 10 minute walk to the Westin resort and a 5 minute drive to Cruz Bay. We strive to keep our property crystal clean and maintained for your safety and enjoyment.

About Paul & Joan

We are life loving and love hanging out in nature on St. John.

We enjoying sailing and embracing new adventures! St. John

is in our hearts- whenever we leave she always draws us back!

Come enjoy paradise with us.

Paul & Joan purchased this studio in 2008

Why Paul & Joan chose Chocolate Hole

We chose Chocolate Hole for many reasons. We wanted to be located directly on the ocean with our boat in front of the property. This spot we found is truly amazing! Our home is twenty five feet from a reef just teaming with gorgeous tropical fish and sea turtles. The location is just minutes to groceries, shopping and incredible dining. we love it here!! We know you will too!! Whiners and complainers stay away, please.

What makes this studio unique

This property is not for those that come to sit and watch videos or peck on their laptops all day. This property is for folks that want to explore the true island wildlife- not Woodys! Just kidding....

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Paul and Joan,

Just wanted to send a quick note to say how much I (and my sister) really loved staying at Sea Nest. It was the perfect getaway - the accomodations were just right, we kept commenting on how nicely decorated it was with the island theme. The location was perfect, close enough to Cruz Bay to enjoy the ammenities but far enough from the hustle and bustle (if you can call it that!) to feel like we had our own private abode in the islands! If I were to give a suggestion it would be to add more towel bars or a drying rack. The snorkel gear, beach chairs and coolers provided everything we needed for beach excursions and my snorkeling in Chocolate Hole was one of the most EXCITING with the barracuda and sea turtle sightings. It was a perfect vacation, will definitely be back!

Thank again!

Judy

WORTH EVERY PENNY!

  • 5 of 5
This rental was exactly as advertised and described on line. Everythinhg was first rate, first class, and in immaculate. condition.The owners were very accomodating and helpful. This is the perfect quiet, peaceful getaway spot for a relaxing laid back stay for two.
The only caution for prospects is that water enrty at the rental requires agility that those of us over 60 may lack. The sand beach at the end of the cove is however easy, close ,and accessible.
if we ever return ( hopefully) this will be our first choice.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Paul and Joan are excellent hosts and did a great job fixing 2 small issues that popped up around Christmas-time. The seanest is a excellent place for a couples vacation or retreat. The shoreline is a bit rocky and there are sea urchins, so be careful getting in and out of the water.

Dear Paul and Joan,
I’m writing to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at Sea Nest. We chose your property based on your description and photos. I’m not sure any of those do it justice. Your home is absolutely stunning! The gardens are gorgeous, the layout was perfect, and to be right on the water was priceless. You provided us with everything a guest could ask for and then some. We can’t imagine having a nicer stay. We would recommend your home to anyone who wants an amazing vacation experience on St John. We loved meeting our new friends upstairs too! Cheers – Rob & Nance

More Than We Could Ask For...

  • 5 of 5
This was my first vacation rental and trip to St. John. I booked a week at the Sea Nest with my girlfriend, not quite knowing what to expect.

What we arrived to was shockingly wonderful. I can honestly say the photos do not come close to capturing the beauty of the scenery and detail of the home, not to mention the care and generosity Paul and Joan have provided. Joan, who took on the interior design of the house, has managed to create a homey beach cottage atmosphere, yet modern and chic throughout. Being a complete snobby germaphobe, I was really impressed with the degree of pristine cleanliness and new condition everything was in. Paul was super nice and helpful with any questions we had and even offered us a few rides into town.

The whole time we couldn't get over how thoughtful and organized everything was. They provided all kinds of accoutrements from brand new water shoes, nice towels and soaps, to an array of kitchen utensils and cooking spices. We cooked almost all of our meals at the house, and as a pretty decent cook I can say we had all the necessary things and more to make all kinds of dishes.

The views are picture perfect and once again are not captured to their full potential in the photos. Every morning we had coffee and breakfast on the beach front patio, and every night we would lay out on the lawn chairs by the water front and stare at the stars. (as a new yorker this is something you don't take for granted) It was only at certain times of the day we needed bug spray, it seems there is a brief window of 1 to 2 hours in the evening where bugs will come out.

I would definitely stay again and couldn't recommend this place enough to anyone I know looking for a peaceful waterfront paradise vacation.

Thanks Paul and Joan

Sweet unit

  • 4 of 5
Really beautiful setting. The entire apartment was spotless. Everything we needed was supplied to allow us to cook all our meals (hotplate, toaster, toaster oven, BBQ, full sized fridge and freezer), enjoy the beautiful surrounding beaches (towels, fantastic beach chairs, coolers, ice packs, tupperware) and have a wonderful time indoors (books, CDs, DVDs, great furnishings, ceiling fans, A/C). Joan and Paul have decorated the unit beautifully. This is a fantastic place to stay if you are able bodied. The water access is fraught with sea urchins...as are all stoney beaches in St. John. It was delightful to fall asleep listening to the ocean. This is actually a place I would rate as beyond excellent, but have chosen good instead due to the bugs. Sand fleas and mosquitos are a problem in the morning and late afternoon into night anywhere near the water and therefore we were not able to enjoy the beautiful outside of the unit as we had hoped. That is certainly not under anyone's control, but does affect your outside activity at the property. We were thrilled with the service of the management company Cimmaron. They bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed and that everything was in working order...and if it wasn't, they were there same day or next. This is a terrific base from which to start your amazing adventures on St. John.

paradise found

  • 5 of 5
Sea Nest is a cozy, beautifully decorated hideaway complete with snorkel gear, kayaks, and an amazing view to wake up to each morning. The owners were extremely helpful....available and informative when we had questions and respectful of our privacy. I highly recommend this rental for anyone adventurous who also wants a bit of luxury in the accommodation. Many thanks to Paul and Joan for offering to share their piece of paradise.
