Why Leslie Glaves chose Chocolate Hole
We love the views and sound of the ocean. 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, 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
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.
