Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

You know you picked a gem, when shortly after arriving to the house, your father-in-law comes up and hugs you saying, "you did good." Yes, I did good. The house is even better than the pictures. The outdoor space alone is worth the rental price. The deck and pool are large. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The kitchen while small, has everything you need. There wasn't a single time that I said, "I wish I had...." The gift basket on arrival was the best I have ever seen.

The house is clean and all the furnishing are newer and well taken care of. Returning from the beach was easy as there is a side set of steps that leads to an outdoor shower.

It is nice having one bedroom upstairs and the two downstairs. Good separation of space. There is no way to get to each level without going outside, a minor inconvenience in the rain.

The view of St. Thomas is lovely at night. The pool is private. You look down on other houses, but there is no house to look down on you. The internet worked well, plenty of parking for your jeep and the driveway is fairly level. When I need a three bedroom house, this will be all that is on my list. No need to look further.

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent visitor to St John, this was the first time as a family. We reviewed the layout and location of Chococruz and it was perfect for our family of 4 including girls ages 14 and 11.

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by our local host Linda who helped us navigate the dock, car rental and the house itself. There was even a welcome package including snacks and wine for us!

Overall the house was perfect for us including the pool, beach gear and sleeping arrangements. The girls enjoyed having an "apartment" all to themselves. We will definitely return as soon as possible.

The property was everything the pictures would indicate. Comfortable and well maintained. Located a reasonable distance to the grocery store and town. The property manager was also incredibly helpful in answering questions. We would definitely go back!

Gorgeous views, comfortable accommodations and a convenient location. Fantastic outdoor space.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this wonderful property and wish that we could have stayed longer. The house met our needs very well and the outdoor space was spectacular with newly rebuilt and expansive upper and lower decks. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets each evening and star gazing each night. The early mornings were blissfully peaceful. Day trips to the fabulous beaches were combined with time relaxing in the pool. We enjoyed using the grill a few times and also visited several local restaurants with Zo Zo's at Caneel Bay earning top honors for a special dinner out and The Lime Inn earning top honors as our favorite more casual spot right in Cruz Bay. The beaches on the North shore were fabulous with easy and abundant opportunities to snorkel. The drive into Cruz Bay is under 10 minutes and the North shore beaches can be reached in 15-25 minutes depending on which one was the destination of the day. We tried many of them and enjoyed different features of each one. Maho was a favorite for sea turtles and Honeymoon was worth the short walk. A day charter with Island Roots to explore more out of the way snorkeling locations and to Jost Van Dyke was a highlight of the week. We absolutely loved St. John; the people were friendly and the surroundings just gorgeous. Choco Cruz was a perfect fit for us; we hope to return again!

The property was exactly as described and shown on the site.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this spot. Very private and gorgeous views. Linda was helpful and friendly. She went above and beyond to make sure we were all set at the house and answered any questions we had about the island. It was our honeymoon and we couldn't have chosen a better spot. The snack basket at the house was much appreciated as well as the Congratulations bottle of champagne. We will definately rent again.

Chocolate Hole, USVI - St. John, Caribbean --- Located on the southwest shore of St. John, ChocoCruz presents you with one stunning view after another - the east end of St. John, St. Croix to the south and St. Thomas to the west. From early in the morning as cruise ships slip quietly by to evenings filled with the sparkling lights of St. Thomas, the view is constantly changing. The private pool is enhanced by a large deck that is perfect place to while away the days.

To find ChocoCruz on a map, go to google maps, and search for 'ChocoCruz'.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, health/beauty spa
