  • Great Cozy Home!

    "Wonderfully comfy property overlooking Chocolate Hole Bay. Rooms are large and there is plenty of space to spread out in. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are comfortable. Liked sitting on the deck in the evenings and watching the lights of the cruise ships go by or hanging out in the hot tub. Short drive to beaches and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again!"

  • By far our best vacation yet!!

    "There aren't enough words to describe how utterly amazing the estate rose is. The property and views from anywhere you stand is breathtaking and the house couldn't be more comfortable, equipped and designed better than what it is. The house allows for ample individual privacy and plenty of space to gather as a group whereever you choose to do so. We are sold on the estate rose and will stay there each year we come. It is also a perfect location on the the island being a 10 min drive to town and to the beaches. Thank you so much Mark for all your help and hospitality and making sure our stay there was the best possible."

  • Seascape is Superb! Relaxing, Restorative, Fun, Beautiful.

    "We live on Cape Cod, and after a grueling New England winter we wanted nothing more than to park ourselves somewhere warm with a sunset view and recharge our spent batteries. I was lucky to find Seascape on VRBO and after an inquiry got a quick response from Bill and Janis, who turned out to be our amazing, thoughtful hosts. From the moment we arrived in Cruz Bay our greeter/caretaker Dave put us at ease and led our way to Seascape. He carefully showed us around the villa and clued us in to all of the little nuance items that go along with any home you've never been in before (TV, wifi, hot tub tutorial, etc). If we had ever really needed anything I know Dave or Robin would have been there 100%, but the place was so wonderfully equipped and appointed that we never lacked for a thing. The villa itself superseded our expectations in every way. Magical setting with great privacy and garden, spectacular panoramic views, the pool and hot tub area are a "10", and an expansive tropical hardwood deck that wrapped around the entire property. The house is charming and spotless, comfy beds, tons of towels, great master bath. The guest cottage is also adorable and our parents made great use of it. We pretty much lived on the deck and alternated between grilling at night (fully equipped kitchen and the grill is great) and going into Cruz Bay for fine meals. We swam with sea turtles, explored ruins and generally had a fantastic time, but the highlight of each day was coming home to Seascape and sitting with "our" hummingbirds watching the sunsets. We've been fortunate to visit a lot of beautiful places but Seascape sits right at the top of the list for a tropical home-away-from-home. We can't wait to return and give it our highest rating. Thanks Bill, Janis, Dave and Robin! Jeff and Jeff"

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.
