Property description

Located on St. John’s beautiful south shore, Pura Vida (pure life), is a beautiful island home and private estate situated on 1.5 acres. The villa is surrounded by a profusion of native landscaping and historical Dutch ruins. Our villa's hilltop location makes for lots of lovely island breezes with wonderful views of Hart Bay and Chocolate Hole Bay.

Pura Vida boasts a wonderful floor plan and a downright glorious screened sitting area where you can sit and enjoy a good book or a nap. The two bedroom suites are private and tastefully appointed with all new furnishings and air conditioning for warm nights. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom with tiled showers and glass doors, which will make you feel right at home.

An easy drive from town and top-notch beaches, Pura Vida is an excellent choice for experiencing St. John. Returning home after a long day in the sun, you can relax in the comfortable great room, prepare an island specialty dinner in the fully loaded kitchen, or enjoy a cool drink in the breeze while you watch the beautiful sunsets of St. John before rolling down the hill for a taste of Cruz Bay’s laid back nightlife.

Our community has a wonderful walking/hiking trail to Hart Bay. Just past our driveway (around the bend) there is a path on the left that will lead you through the canopy of trees to the beach. Take your coffee and stroll through the woods until you reach the beach with it's beautiful gentle breezes.

Special Offer: We are also the owners of the Virgin Island's #1 rated Day Spa: Drift Away Day Spa. As a bonus to our villa guests, please enjoy 20% off of all spa services at Drift Away Day Spa on St. John!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: After finding St. John a few years ago on an anniversary trip - and falling in love immediately - we have been thrilled to purchase this wonderful and historic home in Chocolate Hole. We live in Maryland and have 8 children together - 6 children are now in college or beyond, leaving us with two boys at home. We travel to St. John frequently as we have also purchased a business on the island - Drift Away Day Spa. We love our new vacation home and we know you will love it also. John & Maura Kelly

Why the Owner Chose Chocolate Hole:
We chose this property because it is extremely unique for St. John. While all properties are beautiful on this island, this house caught our attention immediately as we drove up the long driveway, past the historic ruins to the expansive yard and surroundings. It is truly a private sanctuary in which to enjoy the island and all it has to offer. Additionally, the location is absolutely ideal for getting to Cruz Bay and the North Shore beaches.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The open floor plan is ideal for a gathering or simply relaxing and viewing the ocean. Enjoy the walking trail to Hart Bay. The screened sitting area is ideal for a late afternoon cocktail, for sitting and enjoying a book, or for taking a nice nap while enjoying glorious breezes and viewing the lovely landscaping. It's a very quick trip to Cruz Bay - great for an evening of dinner or activity. The house is equipped with everything you will need for a wonderful vacation - beach chairs, coolers, snorkel equipment, and a full stocked kitchen in which you can prepare any meal of your choosing.
