Chocolate Hole cottage description

Enter the cottage on the main floor into a large octagonal living and dining area, There is a small colorfully tiled attached kitchen, which is fully equipped for cooking. There are sliding glass doors out onto a large covered deck, with an outside dining table and separate seating to enjoy the view. From the deck, step down to a large tiled patio for sunning. From the decks and patio you can see pelicans, seagulls, and frigate birds flying from one bay to the other.

There is a spiral staircase from the living room upstairs to the octagonal bedroom, which has a queen bed, skylight, a full bath, and sliding glass doors out onto a private deck. The cottage is casually and comfortably furnished, and has cable, internet, a printer, DVDs and many books.

From the main deck, step down to the tiled patio sun deck and step down again to the lower level. The lower tiled area has a laundry area and a second bedroom, with an attached full bath. The second bedroom works well for an older child, or an extra single guest, but is too small to be comfortable for an additional couple.

The cottage is located on 3 acres at the end of a dead-end road. Follow the garden paths, and enjoy the gardens, with a variety of fruit trees with local fruits in season.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 1974

                  About: My husband and I were both professors when we purchased the original cottage. (We have made many improvements over the years.) We brought our two daughters here every summer until they grew up and moved away. In addition to swimming, snorkeling, and sailing, we planted many fruit trees that are now mature, including the mango that bears in the summer when we return every year. We still enjoy gardening.

                  Why Chocolate Hole:
                  My husband and I had two girls aged 5 and 9 when we looked into buying a house on St. John. We asked the realtor for “Something that was not cantilevered over a cliff, was on a dead-end road, and that you would be unlikely to find in New Jersey.” The realtor said, “Well. I have just the house for you.” And he did. After we bought it, we discovered the advantage of facing east for breezes and for shading the outside table after 9:00 AM..

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The cottage has a caribbean character, with colorful tile and furniture of rattan and wicker. It is an easy drive to and from town, nice when returning in the dark from dining at a restaurant. The driveway lets you off right at the front door. From the outside table you can watch boats going in and out of the bays.
