                      Car: Recommended

                      St. John is famous for its natural unspoiled beauty. Beach Walk displays St. John at its finest, being located 20 feet from the clear beautiful waters of Chocolate Hole. Beach Walk is conveniently located to the quaint town of Cruz Bay with its great shopping and restaurants. Also nearby is St. John national park and all the famous white sand beaches including Trunk Bay, Hawks Nest, Maho, and Francis.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We are John and Vicky and are veterinarians in Virginia. We honeymooned on St John at Caneel in 1993 and have now returned over 100 times. We love to sail, snorkel, and listen to the sea breeze and surf just outside our panoramic windows at Beach Walk. Our daughter and dog also love Beach Walk. Especially exploring all the coral along the shore, finding hermit crabs, and spotting iguanas in the trees.

                      Why the Owner Chose Chocolate Hole:
                      One of St John's best locations due to being located adjacent to a magnificent Tropical Reef. Very convenient to groceries, shopping, restaurants, Cruz Bay, and the north shore beaches.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Kayaks and Snorkel gear free of charge. Beach Walk is a rare find being located of some of St John's most beautiful waters. Swim and snorkel and kayak without always having to drive somewhere. The sounds and sights are remarkable at our waterside villa.
