The Villa lies directly on the water, there are no treacherous hills or dangerous paths to navigate or climb down to access the waterfront. The floor to ceiling sliders in the family room capture spectacular views of the beautiful Caribbean Sea. There is a private beach/waterfront area that is not shared with other homes. Palapas and lounge chairs with small tables are scattered throughout the waterfront area for your enjoyment. You'll also find hammocks for relaxing and experiencing the tranquil outdoors.The natural reefs are home to amazing sea life and since this area is undisturbed, the snorkeling is considered to be one of the best spots on the island.

A Bali hut just feet from the water is available for massages/deep muscle therapy and yoga workouts. If you'd like a massage or facial, we have a masseuse /licensed facial esthetician that will come to the villa for a poolside or bali hut treatment. You'll have a very relaxing experience with the tranquility and beauty of being oceanfront and listening to the crashing waves.

Our masseuse is considered one of the best in the Virgin Islands!!

The extra large salt-water infinity pool with a cascading waterfall overlooks the beautiful ocean. You can hear the crashing waves while swimming and relaxing on the many lounge chairs that surround the pool. Set the mood with music of your choice on the Sonos system. Outdoor surround speakers create a wonderful listening experience. In the evening, the pool is lit up with soft lighting creating a relaxing ambiance. The oversized hot tub is steps away.

The evening sunsets are spectacular with explosions of red, orange and yellow. The sky is filled with beauty and a warm peacefulness abounds. Yes, the sunsets are amazing!!

About Marykae & Al

We love the quiet calm of this little island. St. John is a magical piece of this Earth full of amazing blessings from God and nature. We know you will catch the feel good vibes of this space, too! This is our escape from reality-haaaa!! Come on down and hang out with the locals for some Limin', at de Lime in de Coconut!

Marykae & Al purchased this villa in 2016

Why Marykae & Al chose Estate Chocolate Hole and Great Cruz Bay

We chose Chocolate Hole for many reasons. We wanted to be located directly on the ocean. When we walked into Lime in de Coconut we knew we had found home! We are just 25 feet from a reef just teaming with gorgeous tropical fish and sea turtles. This location is just minutes to groceries, shopping and incredible dining. We love it here, we know you will too!!

What makes this villa unique

Since the hurricane, most of the island remains without internet/wifi. Lime in de Coconut now has internet and wifi. Additionally, we are one of the very few villa that boasts a WHOLE HOUSE GENERATOR! The power goes out quite often on this island and trust us- YOU NEED A GENERATOR TO SAVE YOUR GROCERIES AND PROVIDE A/C IN SUMMER MONTHS. Not many villas can offer you amazing snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding and swimming without stepping foot off the property! Our guests tend to stay right at the property for the majority of their stay because of the AMAZING FREE AMENITIES!!! This is a most unique resort setting for St. John. This villa has been professionally decorated to feel more like a comfortable, warm, high end resort home instead of the typical box hotel approach. We have extended every creature comfort possible at no extra charge to you because this is how it should be!! You will love it hear- we guarantee it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Paul & Joan-Just a quick note to thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!! We were a little skeptical about renting sight unseen as in the past have had disappointments. We were more than excited when we stepped foot in your villa. It was immaculate! Your home is beautiful and the many touches you provided for guest comfort was so appreciated! Every spot in the home was thoughtfully decorated and inspiring. We are planning our next trip and will only stay at Lime in de Coconut villa!

Paradise found!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our family vacation at this marvelous villa, there were 3 generations ranging in age from 3 to 76.

All of us had such a great time!!!

Lime in de Coconut Villa way surpassed our expectations, it was more beautiful in person, which is hard to believe given the photos. The views, furnishings, and amenities were simply first class! It was our 1st time on St. John and you would think that we would want to explore the island but there was so much fun to be had here we ended up enjoying the pool and waterfront area for most of the day. Our young kids enjoyed splashing in the shallow waters at the small beach area, while the older ones were at the pool sunning and swimming. The snorkeling was amazing, we got to see sea turtles, octopus and lots of colorful fish. The pool and the oceanfront area are in very close proximity so that even though we may be enjoying different activities we were still very close to each other. The sunsets here are spectacular, we took lots of pictures!!

To get to town, it’s only about a 10-minute drive. There are lots of boutique shops and restaurants.

This was a truly wonderful vacation that our entire family loved!! It was very difficult to finally have to pack up and leave.

We hope to be able to get the family together again and come back!!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!!!

Truly Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lime in de Coconut villa!!!

While researching the various vacation homes for rent we were all intrigued by this property. When we finally agreed that this was the place, we had high expectations given the pictures and great reviews. When we arrived, we surveyed the property in absolute awe. We never could've imagined the true beauty of this sanctuary, and surely, no pictures or words could ever describe the full magnitude of the experience.

The property is absolutely stunning and very private. It is literally your own exclusive resort. The views of the ocean and sunset are breathtaking. The infinity pool with the gentle waterfall is a relaxing, fun place to spend the day. The kayaks are ready to jump in and paddle out at a moments notice, and the local family of sea turtles are often there waiting to greet you.

Highly recommended is the snorkeling which is outstanding. We snorkeled daily for hours. The amount of stunning marine life was overwhelming and it was an experience my children and I will cherish forever. I should also mention that the house has the snorkel gear, water shoes, SUP's,& boogie boards for everyones enjoyment.

This was great for us, as we didn't have to rent any gear.

In closing I would also like to recognize the wonderful home itself. There were 8 of us total and everyone was accommodated without feeling crowded. The expansive deck is amazing and is perfectly positioned for evening sunsets and midnight star gazing. The rooms are beautiful and very tastefully decorated.. Not to mention, the wonderful amenities. There wasn't a thing this place didn't have.

In summary, I have been to St John 5 times and this was, BY FAR, the best Maybe one of the best vacations ever. Thank you to our wonderful hosts Marykae & Al.

Private paradise directly on the water

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the chance to stay at Lime In De Coconut villa for a family birthday celebration and our trip was nothing short of spectacular!! I am reluctant to highly recommend “Lime In De Coconut” due to the fact that it may always be booked up in the future and not available for us to come back ;) My group has stayed at some very nice villas and this is right there with the best of them. From the very first email to the owner, I knew they were going to be wonderful to work with. Super quick responses, extremely accommodating. The Villa can only be described as a gift from heaven tucked away hidden from site and extremely private. One thing that sets this villa apart is the fact that it’s right on the water and totally private which is uncommon for St. John. I honestly cannot think of a single negative thing to mention. You cannot go wrong with this villa!

Property is absolutely stunning. And the owners are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been blessed to have been able to visit some of the most beautiful locales, and stay at some of the finest accommodations in the world. Hands-down, Lime In De Coconut is the absolute best property we have ever enjoyed. Additionally, Marykae and Al are the most attentive, and detail oriented property owners we have encountered. 5 stars does not do them, or the property justice!

Rarely does a property completely meet the expectations built by the pictures and description…and this far exceeded those! The property is simply breathtaking, both inside and out.

Offering a helpful review when all you can say is “Wow!” is difficult, but I’ll do my best…

Our stay was from 3/25/17 thru 4/1/17 - 4 adults, 3 kids, ages 7, 8, and 9. The home itself is as well equipped as our own. (Trust me when I say you will not be in need of anything that the home isn’t already equipped with.) You’ll obviously need to purchase your staple food items, but that is it. We used Meredith at “St. John Provisions” to stock the house with our food for the week. You order in advance, and all of your items are at the house upon arrival. There is a “pay it forward” system (leave what you buy and don’t drink) for adult beverages, which came in handy when the girls decided they wanted drinks with ingredients we hadn’t ordered. Happy wives…

Chocolate Hole is not only incredibly beautiful, but full of marine life. While snorkeling from the house, we saw turtles, cuttlefish, lobster, octopus, barracuda, and many, many different types of tropical fish. Bring your GoPro or underwater camera, you’ll want it! As you’d expect there are sea urchins. The house is equipped with 2 body boards. So, if you are snorkeling with younger children I suggest using those to get them past the shallow area and it allows them, and you, a resting spot if you want to explore the entire bay. There are also 6 kayaks and 3 SUPs, which make for a lot of fun. The kids will enjoy the hermit crabs, lizards, and iguanas that roam the property. You’ll want water shoes when walking the paths, but plenty are provided; as well as 7-10 sets of mask, fins, and snorkels. On top of that, beach chairs, coolers, and beach umbrellas are provided for your daily beach excursions. Again, everything you need is there.

Absolutely stunning, from start to finish; both house and owners! While we’ll always feel blessed for the experience, I’m certain we’d be disappointed by staying anywhere else.

We had a beyond beautiful time at Lime in de Coconut. Perfectly situated and stocked this home became a place of rest and a time of reassurance that life is so much more than even our most above average days would have us to believe. Thank you Marykae and Al for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

Best Vacation ever - Cannot wait to return

  • 5 of 5

We went to St John with another family - our first time on the island, how lucky we were to select Lime in De Coconut - it exceeded all expecatations. On arrival just walking out on the deck and seeing the view took my breath away! The pool was a huge hit with everyone and being able to enter the water right in front of the villa as simply amazing. We snorkeled right outside and saw plenty of sealife. We also took the kayaks and explored. Everything was provided from sea shoes, snorkels and beautiful linens and towels. The washer and dryer were top of the range and made a huge difference to our stay with 5 children! The ages of the children are from 8-13 and this villa was perfect for all of us to have our own space but to be able to come together in the fabulous main living area for meals, games and endless laughter. We rented jeeps and explored the stunning beaches, even a couple of days of rain didn't stop the fun and the sightseeing. Cruz Bay has amazing places to eat, our favorites being Morgans Mango and the Beach Bar. We had a wonderful days sailing with Nate on "No Worries Mon" and we had Chef Ted who cooked us a simply magnificent Thanksgiving meal. Thank you to Marykate and Al for being so communicative in the lead up to the vacation and for answering all my questions - they went above and beyond and we cannot wait to return to St John Lime in De Coconut!
