Overview

Chocolate Hole House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom w/Queen Bed in Loft, 3 Bath Home w/ Gorgeous Water & Boat View

True to its name, Grandview offers fabulous water views looking west toward the picture perfect Great Cruz Bay, the neighboring islands of St. James and St. Thomas and the glistening, blue waters of the Caribbean. Grandview is a casually inviting St. John vacation home that is constructed of exotic island cyprus hardwoods and oozes with charm! It is located in a quiet but convenient neighborhood and has steps from the back yard to Great Cruz Bay Road, which allows quick access by public road to the Westin Resort beach as well as a running route named as one of most desirable and scenic by Runner's Magazine. There is vehicle traffic on the road to be aware of that moves in the opposite direction from the States!

The home offers 3 A/C bedrooms plus a queen sleeping loft in addition to the 3rd bedroom, and 3 full baths, one being a newly built Euro Bath w/shower that is en suite to the newly built 3rd bedroom. Two showers are open air but fully enclosed and private. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a new ice machine, juicer, gas stove and a gas grill on the deck. There is also 2 seating areas facing the ocean with WiFI Internet, Cable TV, DVD and a Bose i-Pod player. The great room has high ceilings and ceiling fans with new track lighting and feels wonderfully open and airy! There are slider doors on the front and back of the house to maximize usage of the gentle trade wind breezes and enjoy the wonderful feel of being so close to Great Cruz Bay from the Bay side!. There is also a new outdoor laundry allowing one not to miss a moment of the awesome views even while performing the daily, mundane chore of doing laundry!

A 4 ft. deck wraps around 3 sides of the house with a NEW 10'X10' private wood deck which offers an Italian marble slab dining table and 8 new comfy dining chairs, covered by a 10'x10' Sunbrella cantelever offset canopy umbrella for comfortable eating and conversation (indoor dining set as well).There is also a NEW 8'x14' coral stone tile deck off the new bedroom allowing morning coffee, a glass of nightly wine or enjoying the gentle trade winds! Grandview offers abundant privacy and a wonderful opportunity to unwind. The 2 king bedrooms offer amazing ocean views and fabulous sunsets with the comfort of Sleep Number Beds further offering the chance for a restful vacation!

About Mark Shekleton, Seaview Homes. Inc.

Our family of 6 from Winston-Salem, NC first visited St. John in March 2005 and fell in love with God's creation of the beautiful Caribbean Sea, wonderful warm weather, and the fact that most of the island is preserved as national forest. We so enjoy the sounds of the tree lizards and iguanas at night and the ability to snorkel, scuba dive, paddle board, or rent a boat during the day at the beach just down from the house. We have experienced owning a 2nd home at Bald Head Island, NC since 1994 and enjoy island life so much but sought a warmer winter climate. We began looking for a St John property in 2012 that could accommodate our family during times we could escape to the island with the goal of taking our experience of building and renovating at Bald Head Island to an additional adventure on St. John. We are extremely blessed to have such an opportunity and are excited to offer what we feel is a uniquely located, cozy home to others who may appreciate it as much as our family!

Mark Shekleton, Seaview Homes. Inc. purchased this house in 2013

Why Mark Shekleton, Seaview Homes. Inc. chose Chocolate Hole

The location is very convenient to town where the dining is world class and the shopping is fun! We also love the friendly and quiet feel of the neighborhood, yet the closeness to the Westin where we can go pay to use the fitness facility and spa, or just go enjoy the restaurant, beach, and other offered activities thru the resort such as day snorkel trips to other nearby islands or even daily boat rental.

What makes this house unique

Location, View, Close Drive to Town, Close Drive to North Shore Beaches, Closeness to Westin Resort and a Convenient Circle Drive to Park Your Car at the House! We love sitting on the wrap around porch and new deck in the evening watching the awesome sunsets and ensuing twilight as it approaches! Eventually you are gazing at the stars and the distant lights of St. Thomas!

Beautiful View; Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at Grandview over our high school daughter's Spring Break. We had not been to the USVI before and I cannot think of a better place to have made our first stay.

Grandview is situated on a nice bluff overlooking Great Cruz Bay. The house is easily accessible from the ferry dock; about a 5 minute drive down the main south side road to a small loop road just past the Westin Resort. There are lots of places nearby to purchase food, beverages, and supplies.

The setting is serene: small boats floating lazily at anchor in the bay, lush greenery surrounding the home, the shoreline and hills of St Thomas off in the distance, blue sky and bluer water, and gentle breezes. There is a large sun deck on the east side of the house with a dining table and grill, a small private deck on the west side of the house, and fronting the entire length overlooking the bay, a veranda with chairs to drink in the view and the spectacular evening sunsets.

This same view can be enjoyed from each room along the front (bay-facing) side of the house - there are floor to ceiling screened sliding windows/doors in the center great room - which includes two sitting areas, dining area, and the kitchen - and the two bedrooms on either side. Each front bedroom has it's own bath and outdoor shower, and a third bedroom is on the driveway side of the home, with an additional loft sleeping area and it's own bathroom.

It's such an easy house to be in! Everything you need to feel right at home: all the kitchen appliances, beach chairs, cooler, the grill, wonderful beds and bedding, and more. It's easy to get to, easy to shop, and easy to get to almost everywhere else on the island!

We loved the beaches! We thought we might miss having a pool, but having the majority of beaches in the National Park made it just so unique and interesting - each beach with it's own characteristics and beauty. We initially went to the beach at the Westin thinking we might want to be around available chairs, beverage service, etc. We immediately discovered that the Park beaches really are just fabulous and thereafter we hit a a different beach everyday!

In Cruz Bay there are all kinds of really great dining options - from high end top quality restaurants to family-style beach-front joints. Again, we thoroughly enjoyed all that there was to offer.

It was a terrific trip: great accommodations, easy planning with both the owner and the rental agent, and St John relaxation!

Great house for the price

  • 5 of 5
This house is great for the price. This is our second time staying here. The third bedroom is a nice addition to the house. Adding the air conditioner to the living room/kitchen area is a great addition. The internet went down but we called and someone came and reset the modem. We did a half day sailing trip with Cloud 9. We enjoyed the trip. We also ate at Skinny Legs. We enjoyed this restaurant and would go back. It is on the other side of the island. We mainly went to Cinnamon Bay; but also went to Honeymoon and Solomon Bay. On our next visit we would go back to Honeymoon and Solomon Bay. It is worth the walk.
I would recommend this property. The house is clean and the kitchen is well stocked. The owner provided good service.

Just what the doctor ordered

  • 4 of 5
Peace, quiet, comfort and relaxation was what we needed and found it at Grandview. Beautifully furnished home with views galore. Peaceful sleep in comfy bed, greeted each morning by friendly bananaquits. We would love to come back and next time bring friends. Location was perfect!

Paradise in St. John

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent our vacation at Grand View and could not have been more pleased! The pictures do not do it justice! The decor is exquisite and the sleep number beds will give you the most incredibly wonderful nights of sleep! The views from every room are more than Grand! We cannot wait to go back to this slice of paradise in the near future!!

Our escape from the snow!

  • 5 of 5
Grandview is a great house! The pictures don't do it justice but know that if you rent it you will find it very comfortable and roomy with great views of the cove and beach from the deck. My wife and I spent a week here and wish we could have stayed 2. We had coffee each morning on the deck along with an Iguana that thought he was hidden in a nearby tree (great idea having binoculars right there for us!). The sunsets are pretty spectacular as well! We even saw both ends of a rainbow from the deck during a rain shower.

This was our first stay in Cruz Bay, having stayed previously in Coral Bay. Grandview is in a nice quiet neighborhood and is very convenient to multiple grocery stores, lots of great restaurants and all the spectacular beaches on the island.

Needless to say, we love St John and we love this house. We look forward to renting it again soon!!!

The perfect winter escape!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a loved home, not a hotel or rental. My husband and I had a spectacular two weeks at Grandview - and the view.... oh the view each morning from the very comfortable bed!!! We cooked dinner for 8 and had wonderful meals outside on the deck - our friends always wanted to come to our place - the house is so comfortable an homey you can't help but fall in love with it.
We had one very minor issue, a broken blender, and it was replaced within an few hours. Seaview Homes was a delight to deal with and this property is one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. You will see us next year ... hopefully for 3 weeks.
Thank you for restoring us to human beings again.

Owner's Response: Jennifer, Thank you so very much for your very kind comments! We feel so blessed to be able to offer Grandview to others to enjoy as much as we do as a family. We would love to have your family next year and hopefully we will have added other amenities planned of a large covered deck off the back and a large hot tub or endless pool. We are obtaining permits now. We look forward to your next stay!
