  • Delightful Cottage

    "We loved our stay at Molly's cottage. It is evident that this home has been lovingly constructed and cared for. It is well maintained and super clean! It is charming in every way. We loved the deck and it's views. We ate our breakfast there every morning. It was very convenient to town as well. We would definitely rent this property again."

  • Excellent vacation home

    "We stayed for several days with 2 other couples. This was the perfect set up for us as each bedroom was on a separate level with a private bath. There is also the main gathering space where the kitchen, living room, dining room and outdoor patio was located, so if several people wanted to stay up late, or get up earlier no one would be disturbed. The property was very quiet and peaceful. I felt like I was staying at a friend's house the entire time, everything was right there. And the sunset view of seeing St. Thomas was incredible! The pool was nice, but we really appreciated the hot tub in the evenings when it got a little chillier. The owner Franklin was extremely helpful with any questions we had. Would definitely recommend!"

  • In love with Estate Rose

    "Estate Rose is absolute paradise! I just returned from an eight day stay. The first half of the trip was a girls getaway with the second half a romantic vacation with my husband. I thought the pictures on VRBO were beautiful, but my expectations were far exceeded in person. Breathtaking! The grounds are amazing and so beautifully kept. The living quarters are top notch with access to a gourmet kitchen, game room, library, workout area and outdoor patio and grill. The pool area is surrounded by luxurious outdoor furniture with a variety of options to sit in full sun or be shaded. The views are stunning from any direction on the estate. The owner has thought of every detail, including robes and coffee pots in each room as well availability to a concierge for activity planning. One day we had in home massages that were the ultimate in relaxation. I have been to other islands before, but this was my first visit to St. John. We loved the feel of the island. Very casual, easy going and everyone is extremely friendly. I loved that the staff at the bars and restaurants are so outgoing. I feel like we made friends with everyone we came in contact with. We did take an all day boat trip via See and Ski. The tour was awesome! We were on the water from 8-5, seeing most of the VI's and stopping at several. Capt. Daniel was so knowledgable! I will definitely return to St. John and Estate Rose. Would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I can't wait until next time!"

  • Unbelievable Views and Breezes

    "We had a wonderful time at Sopra Mare for 10 fun filled days. The views at Sopra Mare were 2nd to none! Every night we left the doors opened in the bedroom - the breezes and sound of the ocean were so relaxing. As vacation rental owners - we were impressed by Mike's quick responses and help for our last minute trip. Everything is in the place was neat, clean and up to date. Colleen - Mike's property manager - was also great and extremely informative. If you have the opportunity to book this place or Mike's other property - you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Mike for a great time and your help....."

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.
