Overview

Chocolate Hole Villa Rental Photos and Description

Ground floor suite: 2 bdrm 2 baths, sleeps 2-4 persons

Drive down a long private drive just minutes from Cruz Bay and find yourself basking at the edge of crystal clear emerald waters. Aussie is one of the most affordable, relaxing, and fun properties on St John.

Occupying the lower level 500 sq ft below Beach Walk Villa, Aussie is only twenty feet from swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking on a magnificent Tropical Reef! We provide gear free of charge. Take a hike down the rocky shoreline and sun bathe on Chocolate Hole Beach.

Even grilling is an experience at Aussie. You can hear the surf, see the bottom of the water it is so clear, and carry food conveniently to and from the nearby fully equipped kitchen and Great Room.

Exploring the island is easy from Aussie. Conveniently located only a few minutes drive to Cruz Bay Restaurants, shopping, and the Westin Resort. Or head down north shore road to Trunk Bay, Cinnamon, or continue on to Coral Bay.

Outside Aussie:

* Located just 5 minutes from Cruz Bay ferry dock, Jeep rentals, restaurants, and duty free shopping.

* Westin Resort - enjoy your own villa AND the resort! Take a pleasant 15 minute walk to the Westin Resort for lunch and cocktails on the beach. Go scuba diving or take a day sail. Rent a power catamaran for the day and go to the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van dyke for the original Pain Killer and say hello to our friend Jack the owner. And if you really feel like exercising, buy a day membership to the full Westin Gym.

* Chocolate Hole Beach is a hike down our beautiful but rocky coastline. Sunbathe without ever getting into the car. If you want to take the beach chairs and cooler ask our property manager about the 2 minute drive to the beach parking area.

* Grill some local Mahi or Tuna, brats, burgers and steaks and listen to the gentle surf a few steps away.

* We have two kayaks for your use to explore beautiful Chocolate Hole Bay.

* Snorkel gear is provided at Aussie. Put on your snorkel, take a few steps onto the rocks, and swim out onto one of St John's most magnificent Tropical Reefs. Get close to Sea Turtles, Rays, Lobster, and many of the over 400 Reef fish that live in the Virgin Islands.

* The Hammock! A must do is a well deserved nap on our surf side hammock. As you look out over the crystal clear waters a few feet away, listen to the lapping surf and sip your favorite Rum Cocktail. Catch up on your book or even enjoy your WiFi & iPod as the sea breeze rocks you to sleep.

* Remember, there is no pool on the island like our own crystal clears waters of the bay just steps from your door!

Cozy, Affordable, Awesome

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I loved staying here. The kayaking and snorkeling were AMAZING. You just walk outside of your door, turn around, walk 30 paces and you're at the water. It was incredible being able to jump in whenever you wanted without having to make a special trip to the beach. Place has 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen. All of that's great but we spent most of our time out and about. Affordable, simple, and perfect for the two of us.

The property was all we needed with amazing views

  • 5 of 5
Me and my fiancé stayed at Aussie suite for a week to plan our wedding for next year. We got engaged last year on St John, but have not stayed on this island until this last trip. The views are amazing being right on the water. There are kayaks that are there so you don't have to rent any. The snorkeling is also pretty good right at chocolate hole. We used the hot tub a couple of times, but most nights we were so tired from the days of swimming and snorkeling and relaxing. You are not in Cruz Bay, but right by it so it is quiet and close to town about a 5 minute drive. There were people staying upstairs that we saw a couple of times outside and we only heard them once. Overall it is a great place for what you are spending i definitely recommend it.

Loved St. John!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at the Aussie Suite for our spring break "adventure" this year, and we had a wonderful time on the island! Upon arriving on the ferry from St. Thomas, and after a long day of traveling, it was great to see some friendly faces in Steve and Lisa, the caretakers who greeted us at the dock. From there, they took us to our rental car, showed us grocery stores and places to eat/drink, and led us to the house where they gave us a tour. It really got our trip off to a good start and helped us to feel at home!

The accommodations were very nice. The kitchenette allowed us to have breakfast at the house every morning, and to pack lunch for our beach trips most days (using the cooler provided). It was also nice to be able to come back to the house at the end of the day and have a home cooked meal instead of going out every night. The washer/dryer was great and we definitely could have packed less knowing how easy it was to keep on top of the laundry during the week.

Snorkeling gear (for 2), plenty of beach towels, and beach chairs were also provided at the house, all of which made our beach day trips easier. Our kids loved the proximity to the beach, and we were able to send them down to the water to explore and play (it's literally steps from the house!) The beach is pretty rocky, but our kids loved climbing and observing the sea life (snails, sea urchins, tons of coral). Besides, with the rental car, we explored plenty of beaches throughout the island and then could come back to our "home base". Some of our favorite day trips included visits to Cinnamon Bay and Hawksnest Bay beaches, the Cinnamon Bay nature trail, exploring the Annaberg sugar mill ruins, and a drive to Coral Bay (and eating at Miss Lucy's, which was so good we made a repeat visit!) Waterlemon Cay also offered great snorkeling where we saw sea turtles, a stingray, and a huge star fish! A week was hardly enough to explore all the island had to offer, but we certainly tried to see as much as we could!

The property is accurately described, and Steve and Lisa provided us their contact information in case we needed anything during our stay. In addition, we received a call from the owner's son on our second night to make sure we were enjoying our stay and to see if there was anything we needed. We provided him with a couple of maintenance items, which were both addressed right away.

I recommend the Aussie Suite to anyone headed on a St. John adventure!

The Perfect Place to Start Your Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
If you’re considering staying at the Aussie during your time on St. John – book your stay without further hesitation. The villa and grounds of the Aussie are very accurately described. We could not have asked for a better fit for us. Having our own kitchen allowed us to make breakfast in the mornings and lunches to take with us for the day and saved us from having to go out for every meal or leave the beaches in the afternoons for lunch. The washer/dryer were an added bonus for us and would allow us to pack even more lightly on our next visit! The grounds of the property were well maintained. The villa, grounds, outdoor showers, hot tub, etc. were all very clean. There were plenty of clean towels and sheets available as well.

We were happy with the customer service we received from the owners of the Aussie (John) prior to our vacation and we were well taken care of the entire time we were on the island by the property managers. Steve & Lisa met us at the ferry upon our arrival and were happy to take us around the downtown area to point out their own favorite spots for dinner, drinks, etc. before taking us to the villa. They were available throughout our stay and ready and willing to help with anything we needed. The owners were open to any input we had to make the property even better - though there wasn't much at all that we could come up with - and have already gotten back to us in regards to our suggestions such as more bathroom shelving and shared use of the hot tub between the two units on the property!

We had everything we could possibly want or need at the villa and the downtown area and beautiful beaches were all very close to the property. We spent much of our time snorkeling at the property or nearby beaches – we swam with sea turtles, rays, and other awesome sea life! We also enjoyed nearby restaurants – Zozo’s and Rhumb lines were among our favorites – and made the easy drive to Coral Bay to see some other beaches and stop at Skinny Legs or The Tourist Trap! The Aussie was the perfect location for everything we hoped to do and see on the island!

We have already been in touch with John about staying at the Aussie Suite again this year and would highly recommend the Aussie to anyone looking for a wonderful stay on St John. It was the perfect place for us and we are sure that any couple or small family would have a great experience!

Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
-Jackie & Luke
