DREAM COME TRUE - OCEANFRONT VILLA ON DEVERS BAY, ST. JOHN.

Chocolate Hole Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Dream Come True is an oceanfront, charming villa located twenty feet above the Caribbean in a quiet and picturesque cove known as Devers Bay on the south shore of St. John in Chocolate Hole. Only a handful of homes on this bay has allowed it to retain it's natural beauty, serenity, and privacy. The warm waters below are accessed by gradual, concrete steps with railings and the waters offer abundant snorkeling adventures, swimming opportunities and beachcombing. A hallmark of Dream Come True is its breathtaking ocean views from all areas and rooms. The lapping of the gentle waves enhances the relaxation experience. Shops, restaurants and the nightlife of Cruz Bay are only a three mile drive on paved roads.

Two master bedrooms, each with a private bath, and outdoor showers are located on the first level along with the kitchen, Great Room, and powder room. The third master bedroom has the same ocean views and dimensions of the other two masters. It has its own bathroom and private deck, and an indoor shower. All rooms have tiled floors and the exterior is bounded by native, stone walls. To ensure privacy, the always-warm pool, hot tub and sun deck are located on the upper level and have been placed on the west end of the villa, while the bedrooms are on the east end so as to ensure privacy and quiet for the bedrooms. All bedrooms are air conditioned. There are two safes for valuables.

Broadband internet, wi-fi, and two stereos with ipod connectivity are provided. There are binoculars for nature watching and coolers, sand chairs and beach towels for trips to the other beaches. There is a larger screen cable TV, and a DVD player.

All rooms have ceiling fans and sliding glass doors to ensure perfect ocean views from every room.

We are both retired and we love the time we spend on the island. We love to attend the National Park District lectures, and the St. John Historical Society events. It's a wonderful, perfect place to share with our family and friends.

Dennis & Bev Cavanaugh purchased this villa in 2004

After an extensive search in many places, we found this perfect bay on St. John in 1996 and knew we had found our Dream Come True. We began to build in 2002 and it was finished in 2004. We had rented other properties for decades and we tried to incorporate the best ideas that we had found into our new home.

We have a perfectly private bay, however, we are very close to town and shops. You can sit on the decks and just relax while listening to the water. We are twenty steps from the water and we take advantage of the snorkeling and swimming every day that we can. We both love to cook, and we have stocked the kitchen with everything a cook would need. The house affords great walking opportunities.

Paradise on Earth

If ever there was a dream come true, this is it! I loved so many things about this place, beginning with location, location, location. To have your own private bay for swimming and snorkeling is priceless. The fish here are plentiful and colorful, and you don’t have to bump into tourists to enjoy the crystalline blue water. It’s just so peaceful and beautiful. The house is light, airy, comfortable, exquisitely decorated, well equipped. We especially loved the Jacuzzi and swimming pool overlooking the bay and the outdoor showers with natural rock make you feel like you’re in a lagoon in a jungle. The long balcony running alongside the bedrooms are the perfect place for sitting in a chair to enjoy the breathless sunsets on the water’s horizon. Although the villa is in its own cove, it's still close to town, either by a long walk or short drive. We definitely plan on coming back every year. Thank you for letting us spend some time in your paradise on earth.

Beautiful Island Home on Private Bay ( Outstanding Views )

My husband and I feel in love with this home when we first visited the Island in 2006. We have returned to this home every year since then. This is a perfectly appointed 3 bedroom home. The owners have done a superb job with attention to detail in every room. Every room has wonderful open views of the bay and the ocean. The location of this home on the bay is also wonderful as you are situated just right, not too high or too low. The main deck and the walking decks all provide open views of the bay. The private beach is peaceful and secluded. The location to town is just a few minutes away so you are close to the main town on the Island, Cruz Bay and the grocery store. We have days that we do not leave the house. With the perfect size salt water pool and hot tub and access to the ocean for snorkeling there is no reason too. If you are looking for the perfect home on the perfect Island, Dream Come True is the property for you.

Dream Come True

  • Submitted: Jan 6, 2014

We just stayed at Dream Come True and found the villa to be exceptional, and well beyond our expectations. Having never been to St. John we chose Dream Come True because our friends stayed there and loved everything about it. The accessibility into town, beach area, shopping, restaurants, was perfect for us. The villa is very clean, user friendly and comfortable. With this being a girls vacation I was the dedicated driver and chose to back down into the drive way every time we went back to the villa. The drive way is somewhat steep, but I felt the switchbacks along the north shore on our way to the National Park Beaches were much worse to maneuver. If you have one vehicle you can drive down into the driveway and turnaround for easy departure back out. I chose to back down and I was very comfortable doing it. I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants a comfortable, easily accessible villa with amenities galore to make their vacation the best ever. We are booking it again for next year. Whether you rent this villa or any other villa a 4 wheel drive is necessary just to drive into the National Park beaches.

very private

This is a pretty nice villa, but the driveway is a hair raising experience. You definitely need a Jeep, a basic SUV 4wd vehicle may be ok but the transition at the top of the driveway to the road is very sharp requires the high ground clearance that Jeeps provide. Also I recommend that you take the extra damage insurance especially if you do not have off-road experience because one wrong move descending the drive way will have you against a stone wall with damage to your vehicle. The pictures provided do not give an accurate feel for the steep grade of the driveway, we used 4wd low range going up and down every time to control our vehicle and when the driveway is wet, it is particularly dangerous. Other than that, the house was very nice, clean and well equipped. Just a note, It is difficult to get a good wireless connection from the upstairs corner bedroom. We have stayed at numerous villas on St. John and have had issues with ants in all of them except this one so that is a positive.

Amazing and Private Location- Awesome snorkeling, beautiful home!

My husband and I, along with my parents, spent nine days at the Dream Come True Villa at Devers Bay. It was phenomenal. Two of the master bedrooms we stayed in had outdoor showers- I felt completely immersed in paradise. The pool, patio, balconies, and grounds were beautiful and well taken care of. We loved seeing the iguanas every day! The decor in the house is mostly updated and all the rooms were very inviting. My favorite part of the entire house is its proximity to the beach. Just a short walk down your own private stairs leads you down to the rock beach. To the right (towards Chocolate Hole) has fantastic snorkeling. Our views while swimming, dining, and relaxing on the balconies were wonderful every day. It's a ten minute drive from the house to the hub of the island, Cruz Bay. The driveway, although short in comparison to many others here, is a bit intimidating (steep), but easily managed with four wheel drive. We snorkeled at our beach almost every day and went to other beaches early in the morning before the crowds- our trip was outstanding in every way. The management company is fabulous and makes sure you're well taken care of and the grocery is only a five minute drive. There is air conditioning only in the bedrooms, but we found we didn't need it anywhere else. The only TV is in the main living area, but why on earth would you want to watch TV in paradise? I would and will definitely return to Dream Come True in the future. The owners' Dream Come True was ours as well :-)
