About: Our family of 6 from Winston-Salem, NC first visited St. John in March 2005 and fell in love with God's creation of the beautiful Caribbean Sea, wonderful warm weather, and the fact that most of the island is preserved as national forest. We so enjoy the sounds of the tree lizards and iguanas at night and the ability to snorkel, scuba dive, paddle board, or rent a boat during the day at the beach just down from the house. We have experienced owning a 2nd home at Bald Head Island, NC since 1994 and enjoy island life so much but sought a warmer winter climate. We began looking for a St John property in 2012 that could accommodate our family during times we could escape to the island with the goal of taking our experience of building and renovating at Bald Head Island to an additional adventure on St. John. We are extremely blessed to have such an opportunity and are excited to offer what we feel is a uniquely located, cozy home to others who may appreciate it as much as our family!
Why Chocolate Hole: The location is very convenient to town where the dining is world class and the shopping is fun! We also love the friendly and quiet feel of the neighborhood, yet the closeness to the Westin where we can go pay to use the fitness facility and spa, or just go enjoy the restaurant, beach, and other offered activities thru the resort such as day snorkel trips to other nearby islands or even daily boat rental.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Pool that Overlooks Bay, Location, Sunset View, Close Drive to Town, Close Drive to North Shore Beaches, Closeness to Westin Resort and a Convenient Circle Drive to Park Your Car at the House! We love sitting on the wrap around porch and new pool deck in the evening watching the awesome sunsets and ensuing twilight as it approaches! Eventually you are gazing at the stars and the distant lights of St. Thomas! You can enjoy lounging in the pool as you enjoy the close of the day!
