Overview

Chocolate Hole House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6 (Children ages 10 and up only, please)

This Caribbean style home sits 200 feet above Chocolate Hole Bay. It faces west with memorable panoramic views of St. Thomas, St. Croix and other small islands. Watch the boats sail by and enjoy the cooling Caribbean trade winds from the deck overlooking the beautiful turquoise sea. Find delight in the spectacular ocean views and sunsets from most every room in the house. Enjoy the sounds of the waves crashing on the shores of Hart Bay to the East and Chocolate Hole Bay to the West.

The villa has a large living room with cathedral ceilings and an attached covered deck and dining area on the main floor. There is another large indoor dining and entertainment area off of the kitchen. One of the home's most distinctive features is the beautiful island stonework, including large arched doorways in an open air style atmosphere. There is a fully equipped kitchen with all the extras including attractive dinner and barware and a mahogany bar. The living area has a flat screen 'Smart' TV, Wi-Fi, and Stereo/CD/MP3 player.

This home is very tastefully furnished with mahogany and sea grass pieces and colorfully decorated with original local art and Caribbean crafts. The master suite has a private deck with a 6 person hot tub, outdoor shower and secluded lounging area. The second floor bedroom offers a private sitting area and half bath. The lower level suite provides a full kitchen, living room, private bath and master bedroom. The mature landscaping boasts fruit trees as well as many beautiful flowering plants and allows for several peaceful nooks to enjoy a restful stay.

Chocolate Hole is a great neighborhood to walk in and it is less than a mile downhill walk over to the Chocolate Hole beach. We are a ten minute drive from Cruz Bay, where you can enjoy dining, entertainment and shopping.

If parties of four wish to use the ground floor suite in addition to the loft bedroom, there will be an additional (non-taxable) $100.00 cleaning fee.

About Leslie & Greg Glaves

My husband and I recently bought this wonderful vacation villa, August 2014. We live in Long Island, New York and enjoy the Northeast beaches while not in St. John. Favorite activities are include swimming, snorkeling, boating and fishing.

Leslie & Greg Glaves purchased this house in 2014

Why Leslie & Greg Glaves chose Chocolate Hole

The ocean views are mesmerizing and the sound of the waves is incredibly lovely. We are a short drive to town and the neighborhood is great.

What makes this house unique

The sound of the waves is so soothing. The villa is private and secluded and the ocean views are amazingly beautiful! This house is a classic Caribbean build and the stone walls are so lovely.

We look forward to providing a memorable relaxing experience for all of our villa guests. Our on-island villa manager will be on hand at all times during your stay, and will meet you at the ferry dock upon arrival. After picking up your rental auto, you will be guided to the villa and receive an orientation to the island if you are not familiar with the area. Our manager can advise you and help make reservations for any activities you want to plan for during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

 

Hello Kate!



It's been a little over a week since we returned from our vacation. We wish we were still in Iguana Inn sitting on the deck, drinking our morning coffee, looking at the stunning view of the blue ocean.



Thank you for sharing your home with us. We thoroughly enjoyed Iguana Inn. The arched doorways and stonework was beautiful. Having a view of the ocean in every room was amazing. It felt cozy and authentically tropical - it had a truly island vibe. We had an Iguana visit us one morning, making for an exciting and memorable moment.  We enjoyed the birds' daily visits and also a couple of small, yellow froggies showed up a few times. It was neat!



We had everything we needed and more : the refrigerator was well-stocked with all the basic items: eggs, butter, bread, juice, etc. Especially welcome was the bag of ice in the freezer, and a wide variety of herbs and spices The bar was well-stocked, too, we would have enjoyed it, but all of us being  "seniors" we kinda mellowed out naturally after 8p.m. Ha-ha-ha!



St. John's beaches are stunning and so relaxing. We mentioned to Kevin that we planned to visit the BVI - he recommended the Bad Kitty cruise and we are glad we did. It was a highlight of our week.

It was great to have a soak in the hot tub at the end of the day.



It was nice and reassuring to know that Chutney and Kevin were around every day. We felt safe and secure even with the villa's open plan.



We had a wonderful time and are happy that we "found" the Iguana Inn.



Best regards,

Venus and Marcial



PS...thanks also for the beach chairs,towels, coolers, and beach bags. It made our daily trek to the beautiful beaches so convenient!

The Perfect Sunsets

  • 4 of 5

We recently enjoyed our first stay on the island of St. John. While the island was wonderful, we thoroughly enjoyed the villa. I woke early every morning, put on my villa robe, made coffee and sat on the deck enjoying the view and the warm Caribbean air ...perfect! And then ...sunsets from the deck were even better! We loved it. The villa is nicely laid out and decorated, very comfortable and relaxing.

Beautiful Villa with Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa the week of January 10th. Sweet Dreams has amazing views, and we liked that it wasn't a long drive from Cruz Bay. Yes, Iguana Road is a bit steep and rough, but it is worth it to arrive in a peaceful and beautiful setting. The villa itself has everything you need and is tastefully and cheerfully decorated with that "island feel." We really appreciated the welcome package as that has never happened before on either our last stay at St. John or St. Thomas. With recent updates we could tell that the owners have worked hard to make this a special place and take pride in this immaculate home. We had two couples stay at the villa, but with the beautiful unit downstairs, it would be great to have three couples spending time together. Missing St. John already!

Paradise above Chocolate Hole

  • 5 of 5

After a tough east coast winter, we arrived in St John ready for some sun and relaxation. What a house! As much as we loved exploring, hiking and going to the many beautiful beaches of St. John every day, the best part of the day was returning home and having a glass of wine on the deck while watching the sunset over the beautiful Chocolate Hole bay. The house is lovely beyond description - magical is a better word! It has a well equipped kitchen - we preferred staying in and bbq'ing/cooking most nights (although the wonderful property managers suggested a few excellent restaurants that we tried and loved) - and the furnishings are not only beautiful but extremely comfortable. The house is beautifully designed to take full advantage of the wonderful evening breezes. I haven't slept that well in ages! I look forward to going back to St John in the future and wouldn't even bother trying a different rental. This house is perfect! Kudos to the owner and her wonderful property managers for making our stay so memorable!

Breathtaking views...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I couldn't have made a better selection for our 25th Anniversary. This was our first visit to St. John and Iguana Inn certainly exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived, being greeted by our host at the ferry and brought to the house which was stocked with food essentials to get us started after a long flight...everything was perfect. This is in a very private location yet close to town. The views were spectacular. This home was very welcoming and comfortable. We were off exploring/snorkeling every day and looked forward to our return to Iguana Inn in the late afternoon for relaxation and gorgeous views. The evening breezes were cool enough so we never had to put on the AC. The house was well stocked with all the essentials - beach chairs, coolers, plenty of towels, etc. We look forward to returning to Iguana Inn!

Our favorite vacation rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several rental properties and resorts on St. John's over the past few years and the Iguana Inn has provided the most enjoyable experience as of yet. It has the ambiance of a quaint New Hampshire lodge with Caribbean flavor. Fully equipped kitchen and grilling areas leave your meal options open while the short drive to town enables visitors to wine and dine without lifting a finger. The two spacious bedrooms that face the sea to the south offer a grandiose view of beautiful sunrises and sunsets from start to finish. If you decide to stay at the Iguana Inn the back deck will surely become your favorite feature to this beautiful home. It is fully furnished and tiled with an outside dining table that seats six. Imagine yourself alongside a few good friends having your favorite cocktails in a deck-mounted hot tube unwinding after a long day at the most gorgeous beach in the world...the Iguana Inn has one and it's the best feeling in the world!!! If you are looking for an exciting yet relaxing once in a lifetime paradise get away, look no further, the Iguana Inn will fulfill your every desire and expectation.

Everything You Could Ask For and More!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Iguana Inn just two weeks ago, and it was everything I had hoped for and more. The internet representation of this property is realistically represented in the description and photographs. However, photographs alone cannot convey the beauty and ambiance of this lovely home. Nor can they relate the warm hospitality and helpfulness of its owners. This was our first, but not last, visit to St. John, a breathtakingly beautiful island. We were greeted by a lovely woman who gave us the lay of the land, assisted us with getting our rental car, and took us to the house. After a tiring trip, we were greeted with a bottle of local rum and a provisioned refrigerator! Being new to the island we didn't have the hassle of having to "forage" for food the moment we got there. This was such a big bonus for us! This beautiful home has everything you need for your comfort and enjoyment. The open air architecture, beautiful stonework, and tasteful appointments add to the island experience. In particular, you will find very comfortable beds, and fluffy towels. There's plenty of room for family gatherings in the main living area and a large deck with a panoramic view of the islands where you can enjoy the balmy breezes on high. You will find good restaurants, good food, and some nice shops when you aren't at the beautiful beaches snorkeling. The island is lush, green, and very tropical, and believe it or not, no flies!!! There are beautiful birds, and you will find the mongoose and iguanas quite entertaining...all adding to the island experience. The owners were very informative, friendly and answered all of my questions. Additionally, you will definitely require a rental car even though this property is only about 2 miles from town....The location is private but very conveniently located to everything. I highly recommend Varlack car rentals for reliable transportation. Our friends rented a car from another agency and their car broke down!

It's only been about a week since we left St. John, and I'm already longing to return. You can't go wrong with staying at the Iguana Inn!
