Recent Chocolate Hole reviews

  • Everything we dreamed of and more!!!!

    "From the moment we first arrived on the island, we instantly fell in love with St. John and everything it had to offer. Sinbad was great at meeting us at the barge dock and giving us a brief tour of the island and all the local hot spots. When we arrived at Meritage Cottage, we instantly fell in love all over again! The cottage was exactly as pictured on the website. We had our own private deck with breathtaking views of the mountains, ocean, tropical trees and amazing sunsets! We loved relaxing in the hot tub and watching the iguanas during the day and the frogs at night. The cottage is located in a nice part of the island. Renting a Jeep is a must for navigating the island. Our favorite beaches were Hawksnest and Water lemon Cay, especially for snorkeling. Such a variety of coral, fish, sting rays, turtles and more!!! We will definitely return to St.John and Meritage Cottage and are even considering for a destination wedding. St.John immediately captured our hearts... Whether you are looking for a remote, romantic getaway or an adventure, you will not be disappointed!!!"

  • Once again at Seascape

    "This was our return trip to Seascape. We absolutely love everything about it. The location is wonderful. Coffee every morning on one of the decks with the bananaquits and hummingbirds. The pool after a long day of snorkeling. The house is equipped with all the cooking utensils you would ever need. The house provides a very comfortable atmosphere. We will be back again next July!"

  • Very Impressed by the details!

    "This was our first time to St. John and I had never done a villa rental before (usually stay in all inclusive resorts). The other couple we stayed with booked the villa as they absolutely love the island. We were SO impressed with the details and comforts appointed by this villa. The owners have overlooked nothing. It was great to have such amenities as coolers, beach chairs and towels, and a BBQ grill. We cooked out a couple of nights and it was lovely to eat out on the patio. The pool and landscaping were beautiful. I couldn't believe how well stocked the kitchen was !! Everything we wanted/needed was right there. We felt right at home and couldn't have been happier. It was such an amazing week. I love St. John and Longview Villa. We will definitely be back!!"

  • Can't wait to go back!

    "I am not sure where to start...my husband and I had an amazing stay at Villa Serendipity! You can tell from that the owners recently did a lot of upgrades and renovations to the house and it is beautiful (lots of changes since the pictures were taken!)! It feels very secluded, but it is also close to town (5 min drive). The views of St. Thomas and parts of St. John are breathtaking, you could just sit on the deck for hours with some cocktails in hand! :) The kitchen is very nice and the perfect size for a vacation rental. The master bedroom and bathroom is very spacious. I would love to come back with my whole family or with a group of friends. It is the perfect size for a larger group of people. The owner was so easy to work with and his response to all of my questions when planning was super speedy! Can't wait to plan another trip in the near future...HIGHLY recommend this villa!"

Chocolate Hole Travel Tips

Seasons to Visit Chocolate Hole Vacation Rentals

Chocolate Hole is a small community on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Its Caribbean location results in a year-round warm tropical climate. Temperatures average 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit through most of the year, climbing to the mid-90s in the warmer summer months. Technically, the summer season is from June to October and the winter goes from December to April but there really isn’t much seasonal difference. Some people prefer to visit during the milder winter months as it allows them an opportunity to escape from the freezing northern hemisphere weather. Rain showers occur throughout the year and generally are a welcome relief from the heat. The showers tend to be short lived and occur during the late afternoon or evening. Occasionally, you may wake in the morning to the sound of rain and by the time you are up for breakfast, the skies will have clear. The only downside of St. John’s climate is that it is subject to seasonal hurricanes which occur occasionally in the late summer and fall months. Most often, they occur during August and September but they have been known to develop as early as June or sweep through in October.

Attractions near Chocolate Hole Resort Rentals

St. John is unique in that two-thirds of the island is protected National Park. This has allowed the island to retain its natural charm and assets, and avoid commercialization that is so common in the Caribbean. The Reef Bay Trail is a winding hiking trail on St. John where you can explore the island and is a must for nature lovers. Take along your binoculars and camera so that you can capture your sightings of the birds and wildlife along the trail. You can also join up a guided tour of the National Park which is both informative and a wonderful nature experience.

The Virgin Islands are known for their magnificent coral reefs, wrecks and scuba diving attractions. A number of dive schools on St. John have daily diving charters to the various dive sites. If you’d like to upgrade your dive qualification while on holiday, you can join a specialty wreck, deep or night dive course. If you don’t want to spend all your time under the water, join a cruise that takes you snorkeling instead. Many of the reefs are quite shallow so you can still have a wonderful interactive experience with the marine life without having to rig up all your scuba gear. You can also join a unique snuba diving excursion where you don’t need any certification.

Sailing is another popular pastime on St. John. Cruises and yacht charters can be arranged at one of the harbors and this is a wonderful way to explore the Virgin Islands. If you’d prefer to stick closer to the coast, join up with a sea kayak excursion and follow the coastline to secluded cloves and beaches. Deep sea and sport fishing charters can take you out to the deep waters to catch game fish.
