"We stayed at Andante for a week in August 2014 and had a wonderful time. Amazing views from all rooms and the double tiered deck. The home was incredibly well stocked - everything from the kitchen to snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and coolers. The Villa was one of the major reasons why we had a wonderful family vacation with our daughters aged 22, 20 and 18."Guest: Rick R.

"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!"Guest: Brec Morgan Date of Stay: November 2013 Review Submitted: November 25, 2013View listing
"I stayed here with 8 other friends for 4 nights. The accommodations were fantastic. Clean beds and baths. Decor was island shabby chic. You could tell the owner put a lot of time and heart into this place. The views! Words cannot describe the beauty that is Chocolate hole. The house is perched just high enough to get a full view of chocolate hole but just a few steps down to the ocean. The beach is rocky with some sand. You'll find an abundance of whelks and sea urchin. The whelks are edible. In fact they are an island delicacy. Watch out for those sea urchins though. I would absolutely recommend this home to all. If you're blessed enough to make it to St. John. This is the house to stay in."Guest: magda p. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 30, 2014View listing
"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!"Guest: bjcc Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: June 3, 2014View listing
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.
