Located on St. John’s beautiful south shore, Pura Vida (pure life), is a beautiful island home and private estate situated on 1.5 acres. The villa is surrounded by a profusion of native landscaping and historical Dutch ruins. Our villa's hilltop location makes for lots of lovely island breezes with wonderful views of Hart Bay and Chocolate Hole Bay.

Pura Vida boasts a wonderful floor plan and a downright glorious screened sitting area where you can sit and enjoy a good book or a nap. The two bedroom suites are private and tastefully appointed with all new furnishings and air conditioning for warm nights.

Returning home after a long day in the sun, you can relax in the comfortable great room, prepare an island specialty dinner in the fully loaded kitchen, or enjoy a cool drink in the breeze while you watch the beautiful sunsets of St. John before rolling down the hill for a taste of Cruz Bay’s laid back nightlife.

Our community has a wonderful walking/hiking trail to Hart Bay. Just past our driveway (around the bend) there is a path on the left that will lead you through the canopy of trees to the beach.

About John & Maura Kelly

After finding St. John a few years ago on an anniversary trip - and falling in love immediately - we have been thrilled to purchase this wonderful and historic home in Chocolate Hole. We live in Maryland and have 8 children together - 6 children are now in college or beyond, leaving us with two boys at home. We travel to St. John frequently as we have also purchased a business on the island - Drift Away Day Spa. We love our new vacation home and we know you will love it also.

Why John & Maura Kelly chose Chocolate Hole

We chose this property because it is extremely unique for St. John. While all properties are beautiful on this island, this house caught our attention immediately as we drove up the long driveway, past the historic ruins to the expansive yard and surroundings. It is truly a private sanctuary in which to enjoy the island and all it has to offer. Additionally, the location is absolutely ideal for getting to Cruz Bay and the North Shore beaches.

What makes this villa unique

The open floor plan is ideal for a gathering or simply relaxing and viewing the ocean. Enjoy the walking trail to Hart Bay. The screened sitting area is ideal for a late afternoon cocktail, for sitting and enjoying a book, or for taking a nice nap while enjoying glorious breezes and viewing the lovely landscaping. It's a very quick trip to Cruz Bay - great for an evening of dinner or activity. The house is equipped with everything you will need for a wonderful vacation - beach chairs, coolers, snorkel equipment, and a full stocked kitchen in which you can prepare any meal of your choosing.

amazing!

Property manager Steve was really friendly and helpful in getting us settled in this great house. Thank you Steve!
The house is located at a perfect location, very easy to find and near both the beaches and downtown. The living room is spacious and recently renovated, where we enjoyed watching tv and movies(it has dish network; the wifi is fast too). We also found everything we need in the kitchen for cooking, that's very thoughtful of the owner. Air conditioning in both bedrooms, nice! The only grip is that the second bedroom is not connected to the main floor. It is only accessible from the outside. So mosquitoes can get in when people go to the second bedroom at evening times... need to spray some insect repellent at dusk.
Overall we very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this place.

Paradise inside and out

  • 5 of 5
I'm writing this on my last full day of the week... The only morning of rain since we arrived on beautiful St. John. The rain gives me a good excuse to not rush out the door in a frenzy to see, once again, every square inch of the island. I've been yearning to relax on the porch and take my time. What a gorgeous location and magnificent house! It has been an absolute treat to stay here. The outside of the house is gorgeous... A variety of flowering plants, hummingbirds, and lizards await. The house appears to be new but I think was recently renovated. The inside was immaculate when we arrived. There was a thoughtful variety of goodies awaiting us in the refrigerator - thank you! The house is decorated beautifully and beckons one to hang out and relax. Every turn is visually appealing. Every amenity was well thought out ... The towels were plush, the bed so comfortable, the bathroom products were awesome. I usually don't use a/c on the island but this week was warmer than I was used to, so greatly appreciated sleeping with it on. I've stayed in several houses on St. John, and this is by far my favorite. Consider yourself lucky if you are able to book this house- you will not be disappointed! Thank you, John and Maura!

We had such a good time! The home was beautiful, it provided us with everything we needed for the week in the home as far as beach towels, kitchen utensils, wash detergent, etc! The refrigerator was already packed with a few snacks! Our kids and us played the games provided and watched the movies in the home. The a/c in the bedroom blew cold enough to be comfortable when we slept! The location was quiet and the view was amazing!! Thanks for letting us stay in your home!! We will definitely be back!!
