We were very excited to have an island vacation this year, and after speaking with the owners of Chocolate Hole, we knew we had picked the right place before we even arrived. The owners were very open and helpful with everything, from suggestions about packing to island activities. We felt like we were staying at a friend's place. Upon arrival by ferry, we were greeted by a festive crowd of locals and tourists. While walking with our luggage, a local woman in a pick-up stopped and gave us directions and had us jump in so she could take us to the small bed and breakfast we stayed for the first night. Everything we needed was within walking distance, so we walked to the car rental office, waited for Chocolate Hole's representative to arrive, and followed her to the house. The photos were very accurate. The main house, guest house, pool, and hot tub are well maintained. The view was spectacular, along with the sounds and sights of the birds, lizards, and one large iguana. The island and its locals and visitors were all very nice. The town had all of the amenities we needed, including different grocery stores to choose. There is a small town atmoshpere to St. John, complete with only one working gas station for the whole island. We stayed ten days on the island and were never bored. After visiting as many places on the island each day, it was nice to come "home" to have a nice dinner, hang out in the pool, and watch the night divers from the deck. We found the island easy to navigate and felt comfortable driving around once we got used to driving on the opposite side of the road...remember to remind yourself...left shoulder to road shoulder...to keep yourself in the proper lane. We will definitely come back to St. John and stay at Chocolate Hole again.
