About Paul and Joan

We love the quiet calm of this little island. St. John is a magical piece of this Earth full of amazing blessings from God and nature. We know you will catch the feel good vibes of this space, too! This is our escape from reality-haaaa!! Our weiner dogs love it here, too!! Love chasing those lizards!! Come on down and hang out with the locals for some Limin', at de Lime in de Coconut!

Paul and Joan purchased this villa in 2008

Why Paul and Joan chose St John

We chose Chocolate Hole for many reasons. We wanted to be located directly on the ocean with our boat in front of the property. When we walked into Lime in de Coconut we knew we had found home! We are just 25 feet from a reef just teaming with gorgeous tropical fish and sea turtles. This location is just minutes to groceries, shopping and incredible dining. We love it here, we know you will too!!

What makes this villa unique

We are one of the very few villa that boasts a WHOLE HOUSE GENERATOR! The power goes out quite often on this island and trust us- YOU NEED A GENERATOR TO SAVE YOUR GROCERIES AND PROVIDE A/C IN SUMMER MONTHS. Not many villas can offer you amazing snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding and swimming without stepping foot off the property! Our guests tend to stay right at the property for the majority of their stay because of the AMAZING FREE AMENITIES!!! This is a most unique resort setting for St. John. This villa has been professionally decorated to feel more like a comfortable, warm, high end resort home instead of the typical box hotel approach. We have extended every creature comfort possible at no extra charge to you because this is how it should be!! You will love it hear- we guarantee it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Paul & Joan-Just a quick note to thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!! We were a little skeptical about renting sight unseen as in the past have had disappointments. We were more than excited when we stepped foot in your villa. It was immaculate! Your home is beautiful and the many touches you provided for guest comfort was so appreciated! Every spot in the home was thoughtfully decorated and inspiring. We are planning our next trip and will only stay at Lime in de Coconut villa!

One of a Kind over the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six had a wonderful visit at "The Lime"!! This is a very UNIQUE villa in a one of a kind setting DIRECTLY ON TOP OF THE REEF! We were amazed at how the deck of this villa is literally on top of the waves yet steps to our own private reef for snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, rock climbing- you name it! We felt drawn to this villa due to our love for the water and the amazing sea life beneath. No other villa on St. John can offer this kind of oceanfront setting. We spent most of our days at the pool or in the ocean. We hardly left the villa except for nights out to dinner in Cruz Bay. We really enjoyed Waterfront Bistro and Longboard. Woody's was great for a quick happy hour and we all loved Ronnie's pizza for take out. We hit most of the beaches with Francis being the group favorite. For four couples, this is an awesome villa as each bedroom is separate and has it's own flavor. The owners went out of their way to ensure that we were satisfied and had everything to make our stay relaxing and worry free. Would not hesitate to highly recommend The Lime and cannot wait to book another stay with these guys! Everything was as advertised as promised and surpassed all of our expectations. Thank you Paul and Joan, Jessica and Rob.

Revitalizing Spa week in a Stunning Seascape setting!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing girl's trip at "The Lime" villa. There were six in our party and we all had room to spread out and have our privacy- and have an oceanfront "SPA" experience which is just what we had waited for all year. Being in highly stressful professions we wanted some place that offered privacy and spa amenities- this Wonderful villa lived up to our picky criteria. First of all the setting is really like a picture. This is a rare find on St. John as we have been visiting for the last four years. It seems we just can't get enough of this magical island! The ocean is literally right under your feet when starring out over the deck. You can sit at the new teak outdoor dining and listen to the waves crash below- We all loved this. We decided to go all out for massages and kept our masseuse busy for the week. The Bali massage hut is on the ocean as well, surrounded by palms and cool breezes. There is an outdoor shower to use directly in front of the Bali hut and the villa offered cotton robes as well. We utilized the nice, warm hot tub after our massages and finished the afternoon with pedicures and cocktails by the pool! There is a very bold natural rock fountain that splashes into the pool and the sound is heavenly. I think I even drifted off on the pool float it was so nice! Inside the villa, the owners have provided a very heartily stocked, open kitchen that is perfect for cooking and entertaining. We had the private chef Ted cook for us on our last night and it was well worth it. Ted was most excellent. The bedrooms have very comfortable, high quality mattresses and all cotton quilts which provided some heavenly sleeps for us! Two of the rooms have an open concept which is unique and very spa like- which we loved. The villa and the ocean setting is very private and there is an expansive rocky reef front great for early morning workouts. The road is on a dead end which was great for jogging since there was little traffic. There are iguana on the property but we just shoo them away and they just really stare a you. It was comical just watching them from the ginger Thomas tree on the outside of the great room. There are also LOTS of HUMMINGBIRDS that visit this tree on a regular basis. So sweet to watch them gather nectar from the yellow blossoms. We utilized the free SUPs and snorkels- the bay was nice and calm during our stay with no accidents! In all, this place is pretty SPECIAL- hope to make this an annual resting spot!!!

Straight up Smokin' Cool Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

Being a veteran now to St. John, our family found this resort villa to be superb compared to the others. The oceanfront location, amenities and hosts were hovering way above the rest. This property is "owner operated" and you can see and feel the difference. Most villas on the island are just a number to a large property manager that offers little customer/maintenance service. Paul and Joan have really made this place feel more like a home as opposed to a sterile hotel environment. Everything we needed or could have thought of was made available at no extra charge- the noodle floats, SUPs, life vests, kayaks, waffle robes, coffees, spices, shampoos, cotton blankets to snuggle in, reading library- and all of the creature comforts you would have at home!! Our favorite feature was having an amazing reef at our fingertips to swim and snorkel. We did not have to load coolers and gear to the beach. We just walked down to the palapas and hung out all day. The rocks are so cool for climbing and beachcombing. We found welks and all sorts of areas to explore around the point- bring ocean shoes for hiking! The lower apartment was great for our teenage boys. We had plenty of privacy as the property is over an acre and very quiet yet so close to St. John Market and Starfish. We really liked the market for selection and Gil the manager was great to help out with catering. The highlight of our stay was definitely taking the private yacht "No Worries Mon" for a daysail with Micheal. He is a real professional and a wonderful guy. We sailed to Foxy's on Yost and the Soggy Dollar Bar. Had such a ball and got to enjoy the island from a different perspective on the ocean which we had never done before. This was a trip we will never forget- many Thanks Paul & Joan! Hope to see you in April 2016!

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a family vacation and it was fabulous! What a great way to celebrate a 60th birthday. This was our first trip to St. John and the experience was top notch. Wonderful place to enjoy family time together and experience the beauty of St. John. The most relaxing vacation we have ever had. We had all ages and there was plenty of activities for everyone. The villa is very spacious and it is even better than the pictures!

Amazing views, comfortable beds, great location, clean, peaceful and very comfortable.

The owner Paul is a wealth of information about the island and he was always there to help us out with any questions we had. It is obvious he takes great pride in his property and cares about all of his guests. He was very gracious and caring about our trip and we thoroughly enjoyed visiting with him and learning about St. John.

If you go I would recommend going out on the sail boat, it is well worth the money. We ended up going out twice and it was a wonderful experience for everyone.

Thank you Paul for your warm hospitality and for sharing your beautiful home, it is truly the best place to stay on the island!

Fabulous Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had our family Christmas celebration here and it was fabulous! Grandparents, Parents and young adults and all of us would say this was a slice of heaven. This was our first trip to St. John and it won't be our last :) The home was very clean and lots of extras to enjoy. Some of us woke up every morning and went paddle boarding, some khaking, snorkeling and some yoga on the rock and then some just had their coffee and watched everyone having a great time. We loved the pool and hot tub every day too. WE had Captain Mike take us in the sailboat over to soggy dollar which was so fun, and he was amazing!!! We did this on Christmas, he helped us get grandparents in dingy to sailboat, showed us around some of the islands, nice lunch and drinks too. Paul , the owner, was very hands on , making sure we were all happy , he too was just amazing. Oh and I can't forget Jennifer our massage therapist that came to the house -Wow-what a treat!!! We ate at Woody's(loved the fish bites which were recommended by Captain Mike) Morgan's Mango,High Tide(not so good but right next to Ferry) We really loved cooking at our home too. We would go back tomorrow- but must work - someday!!! We all loved this beautiful home and thank Paul for letting us come and taking such great care of us.

Couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

It was only 5 nights, but it will go down in family history. There were seven of us, with varying ideas of the "perfect vacation" -- no one was disappointed. The villa is without compare-- great location, beautiful views, handsome iguanas, wonderful pool and spa, impeccably clean, lots of libations, beautifully appointed, comfy beds, handy washer and dryer, fine snorkeling, brilliant stars at night, and overall a perfect place to celebrate and enjoy family. We had a remarkable time there. It is very obvious that the owners care about every aspect of the villa and our experience on St. John.

It's too bad we didn't see more of Paul, or get to meet Joan -she gets rave

reviews. We did meet Jennifer and Dave as we were leaving ( so sad for us). Jennifer was kind enough to handle a group photo session.

For a surprise birthday dinner, my family had Ted R. (Ted's Supper Club) cater a gourmet meal in the villa, using the freshest of foods in a menu of our design. It was an was extraordinary experience. Never had a better birthday in all my 60 years! The worst part was leaving Lime in de Coconut, and I hope that we return before long.
