POI PU ST JOHN VILLA - GREAT VIEWS & TOTAL PRIVACY

Chocolate Hole Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Located in Chocolate Hole, with a Southern view of the Caribbean Sea, POI PU is ideal for the family or couples traveling together. The secluded location surrounded by beautiful tropical flower gardens lets you enjoy a very private vacation. POI PU is located just 5 minutes from the town of Cruz Bay and its eclectic choices for duty free shopping and fine dining. Another 10-15 minutes will take you to the world famous beaches on the north shore within the VI National Park.

Upon entering the villa you will be taken with the open architecture of the great room, dining area with seating for four and full kitchen with all of the features and amenities for preparing snacks to full meals. The breakfast counter provides an area for socializing with the cook while meals are prepared. The double doors off the inside dining area open to the side deck where you will find another table for alfresco dining for six while overlooking the gazebo and pool. The gas BBQ grill is located close by for preparing burgers and hot dogs to steaks and seafood.

Opening the three double doors around the perimeter of the villa will virtually double the entire living space with the addition of the wrap around decks with lounge chairs and casual seating. The open beam ceilings with elegant ceiling fans will insure that the cooling tropical trade wind breezes are circulated throughout the villa. With the perimeter doors open you will enjoy the commanding views of Chocolate Hole and the Caribbean Sea from the inner comfort of the villa.

The family room offers a flat screen television with Cable TV and DVD Player and an audio sound system providing casual entertainment in a relaxing environment. The comfortable couch converts to a queen sleeper sofa for accommodations for 7-8 guests.

There are two air conditioned bedrooms with queen beds located on the main level. The beds are each cloaked with elegant mosquito netting and feature ceiling fans over the beds. Each bedroom has an adjacent half bath and share a large and impressive native stone shower with dual shower heads. The third bedroom is located in a large loft and features a queen size bed and tastefully appointed casual seating with TV and DVD Player.

The Fenners reside in the Killington Vermont area and are avid skiers, snowboarders, waterskiers, wakeboarders and tennis players.

Jackie Fenner purchased this villa in 1980

The Fenner matriarch and patriarch purchased land on Chocolate Hole in the late 70s after spending two weeks on a sailboat and needing some shore time and Chocolate Hole offered not only beautiful ocean views but a constant tropical windward breeze. The property has been passed on to the children and we take pride in owning such a wonderful vacation home. It has been a favorite and special place to gather with family and friends, and those who have rented it can't wait to return.

Poi Pu offers the luxury of a Caribbean vacation home yet the comforts home. It is situated on a hillside of tropical flowers giving way to warm tropical breezes. The wraparound deck and pool area offer total seclusion from any of the surrounding villas. A 5 minute ride into downtown Cruz Bay makes it a convenient location to restaurants and shopping.

Wonderful vacation spot!

We spent nine days at Poi Pu. It was very comfortable and relaxing there. Loved the wonderful pool and deck. The listing accurately describes the location and appearance. It is convenient to the St John market that has a great selection of organic and anything you might need. We enjoyed the ease of getting to CRuz Bay from this location. In the past we have stayed near Coral Bay. Our blender died and a new one appeared at 7pm just in time for cocktails! I would recommend this property with no caveats!

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your experience at Poi Pu and for writing such a nice review, Jane! Sorry about the blender - who could enjoy cocktail hour in the Caribbean without that?? We look forward to having you back again.

Love St John

We have visited St. John for many years, most often staying at Maho Bay for proximity to our favorite national park beaches. We loved the view,privacy, and constant strong tradewinds at PoiPu. We found it hard to leave. Convenient to Cruz Bay, the neighborhood is nice for jogging.
Enjoyed the Drink Right Drive Left ale at the Tourist Trap near Salt Pond, the Painkillers at Bordeaux Mountain Cafe (great view) and the crunchy fish at Miss Lucy's(another nice view) all wonderful rewards after snorkeling east end.
High winds made internet unreliable, but then we didn't really want to work!
Terrific porch dining.
Hope to return.

Come to paradise in a HOME that is absolutely perfect......

Just imagine.....you have just returned from the glory of one of seven ravishing beaches on St. John....you have snorkeled (world class - all levels) swam, luxuriated and ramped it all down 7 notches as the Caribbean invites you to do.....and you enter your HOME for your vacation. You travel around the full wrap-around porch to the outdoor shower, you cool off in the delicious small pool, you jump into shorts and a light shirt, pour a rum and tonic or a glass of wine and you feast your eyes on as beautiful a view as you will see in any vacation setting:: The Chocolate Hole cove below, steep hills to the left and the right and the Caribbean Sea straight ahead and perhaps even an Iguana - stone still and quietly lording over his domain... I capitalize HOME because this feels like a home that has been lovingly cared for, appointed and equipped.....which it has.... over two generations. You are not in a sterile condo or a minimally equipt hotel room.... you are home. The open floor plan and large open doors all around embrace the honey breezes of the Caribbean, inviting you outside for a feast, a great conversation or just enjoyment of the ravishing views. The bedrooms have very comfortable beds and are situated as to receive the delicious breezes all night long. We did not turn on the air conditioning once (and we were there end of June/beginning of July). The loft bed is adorable and perfectly suited to teen-age occupants.....The proximity to the unique pleasures of Cruz Bay is close and easily accessable..... its many unique shops, beach-front bars/restaurants are worth visiting often (Do not miss the Fatty Crab - a Manhattan restauranteur has opened in St. John at it is world class) I have traveled extensively in the Caribbean and have stayed in every imaginable situation. This one was by a long shot the absolute best. The Fenners are fabulous people and they SEE THAT YOU ARE CARED FOR. David Rockefeller (who visited every single island, pronounced St. John the most beautiful of all. He felt do deeply about his beloved island that he donated 60% of the land there to the National Parks service. Go......don't wait.......you will, as we did.....have the time of your life.

The perfect honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 17, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
This was an amazing spot for a honeymoon. We had so much space and so much privacy at Poi Pu, we almost felt like we were on our own island. Poi Pu was just as beautiful, spacious, and comfortable as described. We loved having our own grill and did steaks one night and shrimp another. The kitchen had ever amenity that we needed and then some. It even had a blender for making daquiris and margaritas as we lounged on the expansive wrap around deck. We also loved having the dipping pool to cool off during the day and take late night dips. Although our favorite feature had to be the enormous stone shower!

Chocolate Hole was beautiful and we took our Jeep out one afternoon just to explore the other villas in the area. Poi Pu is located very conveniently to Cruz Bay, the ferry, all of the night life, the grocery store, and also to the public tennis courts (very well maintained). It was very easy to learn and navigate the island.

I would recommend (and have in fact already recommended) Poi Pu to friends and family for their next vacation. My new husband and I can't wait till our next trip back.

Thanks to Jackie and Jeff for everything!

Lovely House and A Good Deal

The five of us (Mom & Dad, two grown children, one with boyfriend) found Poi Pu's layout ideal. In fact, we're considering using the layout as we build a lake cottage back in the states. Wide open, spacious, and very comfortable. It lives larger than its sq ft. The view of Chocolate Hole is lovely from the deck and the French doors. Since our last trip to STJ, a condo community has been built and abandoned along the CH shore, but it wasn't obstructive. In fact, we were glad it's been foreclosed, as it was absolutely quiet. We spent most of our days snorkeling and swimming - exploring more of the east end this visit - and at the end of wonderful long hot vigorous days stood in the cooling pool with drinks (plastic glasses only!) perched on the retaining wall. Poi Pu has all the amenities we needed - we cooked a couple of complicated meals and found enough kitchen tools to work with. Eating on the porch was divine and the orientation (south and east) kept the late afternoon sun off as we sat to dinner. The restaurants, bars, and grocery stores of town are a five minute drive. The south side main road to center line was just a couple of minutes in the other direction - steep, but you'll get used to it and enjoy avoiding the hassle of driving through town. Great location reasonable price, and a really lovely cottage. We'll be back next time we stay on this end of the island.
